Egypt’s Muslim President Attends Christmas Mass, Says “No One Can Divide Egyptians”




Egypt’s Muslim President Attends Christmas Mass, Says “No One Can Divide Egyptians

Egypt’s President, Abdel-Fattah al-Sisi, made a symbolic appearance at an Orthodox Christmas mass in a new cathedral located in the country’s new administrative capital over the weekend.

The appearance of the President which is his third is said to be symbolic because it represents an act of solidarity with the nation’s embattled Coptic Christians.

Tawadros II, the Coptic pontiff, led el-Sisi into the cathedral, as members of the congregation welcomed the president jubilantly.

President al-Sisi, who first attended the religious ceremony on January 7, 2015, in Cairo and subsequently the following year, is the first Egyptian president to grace the occasion.

El-Sisi, a Muslim, delivered a message of love and unity, in recognition of the widespread religious divide that plagued the country.

In his message, President al-Sisi assured the congregation that nothing with divide Egyptians.

“The inauguration of the cathedral is a message for the whole world. A message of peace and love…We present a model of peace and love.

“Evil, havoc, ruins and murder will never defeat good. Nobody can divide us.  Destruction, ruin and killing will never be able to defeat goodness, construction, love and peace.

“Pay attention, you are our family. You are part of us. We are one and no one will ever drive a wedge between us”, he said.

The nationwide service was held amid tight security with soldiers and police officers deployed outside churches across the country in anticipation of possible attacks by insurgents.

#GoldenGlobes: Oprah Winfrey Becomes First Black Woman To Win Cecil B. de Mille Award

United States actress, mogul and philanthropist, Oprah Winfrey has won the 2018 Cecil B DeMille award at the 75th Golden Globes, becoming the first black woman to win the accolade.

Winfrey won in recognition of her “outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment,” which the iconic television host and actress certainly has made.

In December 2017, Meher Tatna, the president of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which votes for the Globes, declared in a statement that Winfrey embodies all the characteristics of the award, adding that for generations she has “celebrated strong female characters on and off screen, and has been a role model for women and young girls for decades.”

“As a global media leader, philanthropist, producer and actress, she has created an unparalleled connection with people around the world, making her one of the most respected and admired figures today,” Tatna said in December 2017.

Winfrey accepted the Cecile B. DeMille award with a speech that could best be described as “Presidential”.

“It is not lost on me that, at this moment, there is some little girl watching as I become the first Black woman to be given the same award,” she said. “It is an honour and it is a privilege to share the evening with all of them”, Winfrey said.

“A new day is on the horizon, and when that new day finally dawns, it will be because of a lot of magnificent women and some pretty phenomenal men fighting hard to make sure they become the leaders that take us to the time when nobody ever has to say #MeToo again”, she added.

Previous winners of the Cecil B DeMille award include Audrey Hepburn, Meryl Streep, Denzel Washington, Martin Scorsese and Steven Spielberg. Winfrey is the first black woman to ever receive the accolade.

China Completes World’s Longest Sea Bridge

China’s world’s longest sea bridge linking Hong Kong and Macau

China said it has completed the major work of the world’s longest sea bridge on schedule, after its lighting system was installed and tested.

It took six years preparation, and eight years to build the 55-kilometre-long bridge linking Hong Kong, Zhuhai and Macao.

Major work on the bridge consisted of a 22.9-kilometre-long main bridge, a 6.7-kilometre-long tunnel and an artificial island off the bridge, which is considered the most technically demanding part of the whole construction.

In the next few weeks, engineers and constructors will test the coordination of the bridge’s various systems and equipment, and proceed with inspection and cleaning work, said Zhang Jinwen, project director with the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge (HZMB) Authority.

“The bridge will be put into trial operation after its port project is completed and taken over by customs, inspection and quarantine, and border control authorities,” Zhang said.

In the past 14 years, the regional economy and transport network have undergone tremendous changes, leading authorities to re-assess the utilization rate of the bridge, said Su Yi, assistant to the chief of the HZMB Authority.

But Su dismissed worries that the bridge would not have enough traffic, saying, “we have full confidence for the future.”

“We have a whole toolbox of policies at our disposal,” Su said. “It is like playing cards. We can adjust our moves accordingly.”

The bridge will slash travel time between Hong Kong and Zhuhai from three hours to just 30 minutes, further integrating cities in the Pearl River Delta.
