Dr. Mohamed Ali Bishr, Life Full of Achievements

Today, “government forces” in Egypt arrested another group of outstanding citizens whose their only crime is belonging to a peaceful organization which is seeking reform and to put an end to government corruption.

Dr. Mohamed Ali Bishr with a life full of achievements has been thrown behind bars to join hundreds others of MB members who are paying the price of their love to their country and their steadfastness facing forces of darkness that are willing to crush anyone who dares to oppose their tyranny.


None of Dr. Bishr credentials as a respected university professor, scientist, former Member of Parliament, law abiding citizen and community leader; has been able to save him from the able hands of an oppressive regime.
