    The Wealth of Nations

    In this book, two internationally recognized experts in public finance tackle a new way to restore the economic vitality and financial stability of nations, using steps that have proved to be remarkably successful.
    The book focuses on unleashing the social, human and economic wealth that nations already possess but are hidden or not visible to many people. Focusing on the public wealth of nations helps shift attention and resources from short-term spending to long-term investments that can significantly increase the quality of life for many generations of urban dwellers. If the infrastructure is dilapidated, poorly functioning and social services are inadequate in a country, the solution is not only to provide spending budgets but also to look for unseen or hidden wealth. The first critical step is to understand the country’s general balance sheet. Few countries realize how important this work tool can be. However, taxpayers, politicians and investors can better understand the long-term consequences of political decisions, and make choices that mobilize real interests instead of relying on more taxes, debt or austerity. The book then focuses on an undisclosed wealth, which is real estate. Even poor countries have unused, vast areas of land, or control poorly functioning facilities. So the authors argue that most countries can double their investments with smarter use of these assets.

    The World of Certainty

    The book deals with great people who enriched the minds and souls of the nation. It was compiled by the great journalist Sana El Baisy in the book The World of Certainty, calling for using the rational mind in thinking and reflecting, without neglecting a text or belittling an interpretation.
    The book consists of 12 chapters. She started the first chapter by talking about the Prophet Mohamed, peace be upon him, and then talked about some of the other prophets, as the father of the prophets, Ibrahim, the patient Ayoub and Yahya.
    In the other chapters, she spotted glimpses of the lives of men and women who were a light to humanity and a symbol of thought, ethics, and faith. Among them are Khadija bint Khuwailid, Omar Ibn El Khattab, and Abu Bakr El Siddiq. Then she mentioned the four Imams; Malik, Abu Hanifa El Nu’man, El Shaafa’y and Ibn Hanbal. She also mentioned the holy Azhar Imams; Omar Makram, Imam Mohamed Abdo, Moustafa Abd El Raziq, El Baqury and El Shaarawy. She talked about other thinkers as Goethe and Bent El Shatea. About Qur’an readers, she mentioned Sheikh Mohammed Refaat and Sheikh Moustafa Ismail.
    Sana El Baisy did not neglect the critical historical events. She tackled the adversity we suffer, analyzing our conditions today, and the Israeli attempts to distort the essence of true religion and thought.

    Human beings can coexist in peace and harmony only when they have tolerance towards accepting one another, and when they understand that it is only God who has the right to judge people. It is then when people with different faiths and beliefs lose any feeling of superiority over other believers. God is the creator and only he will judge people on dooms day.
    The author of this book further illustrates the above point through the writings of renowned scholars of the three main religions whom all strive to deliver a key message that faith and religion are related directly to God and that the world should accommodate everyone.

To what extent does Israel pose a threat to the national security of Egypt, particularly with regard to the River Nile springs? Are we in a critical situation after Ethiopia’s latest announcement to build Al-Nahda Dam? Do we have to choose between thirst, as a result of denying Egypt its share of water and its legal right in the River Nile water on one hand, or drowning in an imminent catastrophic flood if the Ethiopian Dam was ever destroyed, which would negatively affect the High Dam in Egypt? All these and many others are questions the book attempts to answer, discussing the case of the River Nile and the row over water, a new threat Egypt is facing. The book also deciphers many clues about Al-Nahda Dam and why Israel is interested in the River Nile water and desires to lay control over it!
