325 Grandson witness the Marriage of their AGED GRANDPA!

Saidia – Al Arabiya published an article today of a grandpa in his 90’s marrying a 20 year-old in Iraq.

A Man in his 90’s from the war-torn Iraq just married a 20 year-old young woman in a marriage witnessed by the man’s 18 children and 325 grandchildren…talk about a BIG FAMILY! What makes things even more “strange” is the fact that the little girl young woman said that she agreed to marry the old man only after seeing his photo…we guess they showed her his photo of 50 years ago, maybe.

These kinds of weddings have been common in the Arab world in the past, but this wedding is by far one of the very few out-in-the-open marriages (of this kind)

With 42 people killed, will Egyptian interim president resign?

Saidia – The treats made by the Muslim Brotherhood about destabilizing the country may have been true as violence in Egypt seems to be escalating towards an Iraq-like scenario.

Over 42 people were killed in clashes near the headquarters of the republican guard between pro-Morsi demonstrators and the Egyptian army and the Muslim Brotherhood is claiming that the army stationed in the perimeter of the republican guard HQ. With the Muslim Brotherhood seeming as strong and staunch as ever many are wondering what will happen next in the land of the pharaohs. Many parties came out with statements calling what happened a massacre against the Egyptian people and while anti-Morsi parties, political figures and news channels denounced what happened they stopped short from accusing the army of committing anything wrong while on the other hand pro-Morsi and neutral political parties called the Egyptian interim president to resign as a response to what they called a massacre. And as violence continues to spread from a city to the other, the US seems to be unable to support one part over the other as president Obama’s administration continues to send mixed signals about its stance on what happened is happening in Egypt while the vast majority of Arab countries (mainly gulf states including Qatar) publically welcomed the change in Egypt.

The violence in Egypt even caused a rift between Al Arabiya and Al Jazeera which were for the past 2 years strongly supportive of each others news reporting which might explain how delicate the situation is in Egypt.
