Save King Tut's Beard
Now this has become the world’s top news from Egypt: King Tutankhamun’s golden and blue fake beard of the mask was broken during a cleaning process at the Egyptian Museum and the museum’s conservators hurriedly glued the beard back on with epoxy resin, damaging the artifact. It is all over the news more than El-Sisi’s speech in Davos and to be honest this is expected, we are speaking about King Tut who is more famous worldwide than Egypt’s rulers in modern age altogether. I am more than furious.

Jabhat al-Nusra and the Druze of Idlib Province
While most analysis of the Druze in Syria focuses on their positions in Suwayda province- where they constitute the majority of the population- as well as Jabal al-Sheikh in Damascus/Quneitra provinces, it should be remembered that there is also a Druze community in the Jabal al-Samaq area of Idlib province, more widely known as Jabal al-Zawiya. This community consists of numerous villages, whose names can be found here. Unlike their co-religionists in the south, these Druze have no capacity for the formation of self-defence militias analogous to the banners of ‘Jaysh al-Muwahhideen‘ (‘Army of the Unitarians/Monotheists’) or ‘Forces of Abu Ibrahim’ (named after Druze figure Abu Ibrahim Ismail al-Tamimi). The Druze in Jabal al-Samaq are therefore dependent for preservation on the good-will of whichever external actors are present in their areas.

Now that he has returned to the neighborhood, he is as sure as ever: the future belongs to the Palestinian people, not the settlers.
