Cairo Conspiracy Image



CAIRO (CNN) -- Many people in Cairo believe a conspiracy lies behind the crash of EgyptAir Flight 990 that killed all 217 people on board. On the streets and in the cafes, fingers and rumors point in predictable directions -- toward Israel, the CIA, the U.S. military.

In late October 2022, internet users shared and expressed admiration for a beautiful image showing a partial solar eclipse over the Great Pyramid in Giza, Egypt. Posted by the astronomy page EarthSky on Oct. 30, 2022, the widely viewed image showed the partially eclipsed sun in a cloudy sky over the peak of the pyramid, with a camel in the foreground:


Fathi said he used an "ND filter 10 stops." The "ND" stands for "neutral density." It's a filter that greatly reduces the amount of light that reaches the camera's light sensor, which can produce a variety of interesting visual effects. The natural light when Fathi took the photograph was much brighter than it was in the final picture. With the help of the filter, the image looks dramatically dark with striking contrast in the sun and clouds. Fathi also said he processed the photograph after the fact using Adobe Photoshop.


In other words, the photograph is a real shot, but the resulting image is something of an artistic creation. The environment when the photograph was shot looked different than the stunning image Fathi produced in the end.


Egypt's ancient pyramids are the frequent target of outlandish conspiracy theories and misinformation. Perhaps because their imposing architecture has survived for thousands of years, internet users occasionally use them as the backdrop for fauxtography (although in some cases, the images are authentic).


Kentrail Brown, 31, of Cairo, Georgia, was convicted of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute methamphetamine, distribution of methamphetamine, possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine and possession of a firearm in furtherance of drug trafficking on March 17, following a trial that began on March 14, before U.S. District Judge Leslie Abrams Gardner.


Phil Grim, 45 of Cairo, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute methamphetamine and was sentenced to serve 120 months imprisonment to be followed by five years of supervised release;


James Levy Sapp, 40, of Cairo, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute methamphetamine and was sentenced to serve 87 months imprisonment to be followed by five years of supervised release;


Mitchell Tomberlin, 49 of Whigham, Georgia, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute methamphetamine and was sentenced to serve 60 months imprisonment to be followed by three years of supervised release; and,


R. Kevin Barrineau, 48 of Cairo, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute methamphetamine and was sentenced to serve 57 months imprisonment to be followed by three years of supervised release;


This ignorance stems from a lack of contact, including the fact that visits to Israel are banned by the Egyptian government and sources of information available about their Jewish neighbor are largely filtered through biased Arabic sources, which focus their coverage of Israel through the prisms of the Palestinian conflict or military and intelligence affairs. If Egyptians continue to have these sources color their perception, conspiracy theories like these will prove easy targets to redirect popular frustrations over contentious issues like water.


One Facebook post, which is thought to be the one that started the trend, includes multiple images of the structure and a video of the Sphinx with its eyes closed. The post has so far been shared almost 7,000 times.


Kentrail Brown, 31, of Cairo, Georgia, was convicted of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute methamphetamine, distribution of methamphetamine, possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine and possession of a firearm in furtherance of drug trafficking on March 17, following a trial that began on March 14, before U.S. District Judge Leslie Abrams Gardner. Brown faces a minimum of ten years up to a maximum life imprisonment. There is no parole in the federal system.


Many Egyptians believe there has been a rush to judgment in the United States by those who believe that a co-pilot of the doomed jet, Gameel el-Batouty, caused the crash in an act of suicide. That perception has fueled a range of conspiracy theories in Cairo: In a society where the official version of events is met with skepticism, the rumor mill is considered a reliable source.


Officials expect to work through the weekend trying to agree on a transcript of the cockpit voice tapes. But the intense speculation about sabotage or pilot suicide has only inflamed conspiracy theories in Egypt.


Objective: A previous study of the computed tomography (CT) of the neck of mummified Ramesses III (1190-1070 BC) suggested that an assailant slit the Pharaoh's throat with a knife in the plot known as Harem conspiracy. We hypothesized the presence of other injuries in the Pharaoh's body as a result of this fatal attack.


Results: Computed tomographic images show partially amputated left big toe. The bony edges are sharp without signs of attempted healing. The ancient embalmers replaced the missing toe with a linen-made prosthesis and placed 6 metallic amulets (eye of Horus) at the feet region.


Although some of the country's politicians may have been implicated in the initial outbreak of violence,[3] it has never been fully determined who started the Cairo Fire.[4] Historians still disagree about the identity of the initiators of the disturbances, leading to several conspiracy theories.[7] Some believe King Farouk I masterminded the disorder to get rid of the government of el-Nahhas. Others support the theory that the British authorities instigated the fire to punish the administration of el-Nahhas for its unilateral abrogation of the Anglo-Egyptian Treaty in 1951.[13] Alternative theories put the blame on the Muslim Brotherhood or the Egyptian Socialist Party, formerly known as Misr al-Fatat.[4] Nevertheless, no material evidence has ever appeared to incriminate a specific group. Following the 23 July 1952 coup, an inquiry was opened to investigate the circumstances surrounding the Cairo Fire, but failed to identify the real perpetrators. The Cairo Fire thus remains an unsolved mystery.[13] 041b061a72
