As today is the 10th of Ramadan which from 36 years ago was the 6th of October 1973 I would like to share with you this important documentary from Discovery channel about Youm Kippur war 1973.
BY the way there are several important details in this war from our side were not included in the documentary like for instance the role of the Egyptian drivers to block the napalm channels on the Eastern side of Suez Canal on late 5th of October 1973. The fantastic role of the Egyptian commandos in Sinai on the 5th of October is usually ignored I do not know why.
on this day I would like to mourn an Egyptian journalist and writer who passed four days ago and we did not know except yesterday in Egypt : Mr. Mahmoud Awad who was not only a close friend faithful friend to Abdel Halim Hafiz who did not betray his friendship with him and spoke about his sexual life on public but he was also one of the best experts on the Israeli issues during the 1960s and 1970s.This man really was among our analysts during this critical , very critical time. May Allah bless his soul.
In the end I would like to share this song , famous 1973 song by Mohamed Noah “Maddad Maddad”
