  • The Debate over Human Rights vs. Security Played Out In Egypt

    Just as the debate has splinter our forum members who participate in current affairs topics, the divide is also playing out on the international stage very much in the public, in polite rhetoric that that goes clearly states both sides of the issue from different perspectives;

    Sunday, 17 April 2016,
    Cairo, Egypt.
    Two world leaders from very different backgrounds made their case for which path forward is the most appropriate to defeat Radical Islamist;
    President Francois Hollande said Sunday respecting human rights was not a hindrance in the fight against "terrorism" but an aid, after meeting Egyptian counterpart Abdel Fattah al-Sisi.

    Sisi, meanwhile, defended his country's human rights record after it became the focus of a news conference given by the two leaders following their meeting in the Egyptian capital.

    Sisi, a former military chief who overthrew Islamist predecessor Mohamed Morsi and cracked down on his followers, dismissed growing allegations of abuses under his own presidency as a plot by "an evil force".

    Sisi, who spoke before Hollande, said the French president had brought up the issue during their meeting earlier on Sunday.

    "The region we live in, President Hollande, is very turbulent," Sisi said.

    He added that "European criteria" of human rights should not be applied to struggling countries such as Egypt, and should include rights to "better education and better housing".

        Sisi said much with very few words,
        "The region we live in, President Hollande, is very turbulent,"
