EIR Arabic Editor Completes an Exciting Week of Action in Egypt, Presenting the New Silk Road
Hussein Askary, EIR’s Southwest Asia specialist and Arabic editor, concluded on March 21 a highly successful one-week trip to Egypt to launch and promote the Arabic translation of EIR’s Special Report The New Silk Road Becomes the World Land-Bridge. Top government officials, economists, and numerous media representatives enthusiastically welcomed the ideas and the presentations made by Askary. The highpoint of his intervention was the very high-level and well attended launching of the Arabic language report under the auspices of the Egyptian Ministry of Transport in a seminar on March 17 at the headquarters of the Ministry presided over and introduced by Minister Saad El Geyoushi personally.
Dr. Saad El Geyoushi, in both his introductory remarks and his commentary on Askary's presentation, expressed total concordance with the idea of the New Silk Road, and his government's plans to integrate Egypt's transportation networks into the New Silk Road dynamic.
The other highpoint of Hussein Askary's week in Egypt was his meeting on March 20 with the Chairman of the Suez Canal Authority, Admiral Mohab Mamish, the man who oversaw the breathtaking building of the New Suez Canal. Askary gave him a detailed briefing on the importance of this achievement not only for Egypt’s economy, but also for the region and even the global economy, if it is utilized as a development zone and hub for the development corridors stretching from China through Southwest Asia to Africa, and also as part of the Maritime Silk Road. Just prior to the meeting, Askary had given a presentation to the team working under Eng. Nagy Ahmed Amin, Director of Planning, Research and Studies Department at the Suez Canal Authority.
Two other seminars were organized with the EIR representative, one at the Egyptian Society of Engineers (founded in 1920), and the other at the Cairo Great Library, which was attended by former Egyptian Prime Minister Dr. Esam Sharaf, who also a former Minister of Transport in several Egyptian governments. Sharaf, who was the main commentator of the presentation, expressed his agreement not only with the economic and scientific aspects of the presentation and the report, but with the political, strategic and cultural aspects as well. Having just returned from a long visit to China, he deeply believes that the New Silk Road is the foundation of “a new and more humane world order, unlike the current order which has degraded human existence and dignity” and urges the Egyptian government to integrate the project into its own development plans and visions. Sharaf expressed his gratitude to EIR and to the LaRouches personally, whose ideas and activities he said he has long noted.
Askary was also invited to three TV shows (CBC Extra, Nile Cultural TV, and Nahdha TV) to present the report and the “New World Order” it represents.
It became clear at all of these events, and the discussions that followed, that Askary's interlocutors regard the New Silk Road and the World Landbridge, and their exensions into Egypt, the Arab world and Africa, as a way to save the Egyptian economy, which has been very hard hit by the consequences of submitting to the trans-Atlantic system and its institutions, such as the World Bank and the IMF. Not to mention the security threats due to the unleashing of of jihadist terrorist hordes in the region.
