Once again, calls for chaos and mayhem in Egypt have fallen on deaf ears. These calls, each time under a different guise, emanate from the same proponent, the Egyptian actor turned businessman turned voice of the opposition, Mohamed Ali, who is currently residing in Spain.

This targeting of Egyptian resolve, and trying to use the demands for services or complaints about price increases, will not stop, nor will its failure deter further attempts. Mohamed Ali, the programs that spew forth from Turkish studios inciting protests and unrest, and the abundant stream of anti-Egypt media published on the Al-Jazeera channels... all this is the enemy's media front. Thwarting Egypt's progress and going beyond the Brotherhood's dream is a “strategic” goal for this enemy. This is the same enemy targeting Saudi Arabia, and these days it has increased its tempo, spurred by Saudi Arabia’s leadership of the G20 summit and Saudi Arabia’s achievements with regards to the Saudi Vision 2030 programs, as well as its success in weathering Coronavirus or the storms of war. For these and other reasons, the attacks have become more frequent and intense. A Saudi film-maker friend of mine tells me of anti-Saudi films whose broadcast dates were moved up in order to coincide with the G20 Summit and sully the image of Saudi Arabia.
