  Knocking on wood is a common superstitious practice deeply rooted in Egyptian culture, and many others around the world, holding different meanings. The act of knocking on wood, or wooden objects, is typically used to ward off any sort of ‘bad luck’. When a positive event occurs, Egyptians have superstitiously knocked on wood to repent the envious eye. Some attribute the tradition to ancient Egyptians, as they used to hold the Sycamore tree to special significance, and considered it sacred, connected to the gods and heaven. Ancient Egyptians worshiped the Lady of Sycamore, also known as the Tree Goddess, and believed in her healing and protection powers that came through the tree. It is also thought that the act of knocking on wood could have been transformed from a Christian tradition to an Arab tradition. Christians would touch a wooden cross for blessing and protection, as it was believed to symbolize the magical power of the wooden cross on which Jesus was crucified. The tradition lived on and people started touching any wooden object for blessing, protection and to ward off the evil eye. This practice continued and spread This content is for members only.

Egyptian actress Shereen Seif El-Nasr, famed for her memorable contributions to the film and television industry during the ’90s and early ’00s, has tragically passed away aged 57, her brother revealed in a Facebook post on 13 April. El-Nasr was born in 1967 to an Egyptian father, journalist Elham Seif El-Nasr, and a Palestinian mother whose lineage dates back to the Hashemite family line in Jerusalem.

At the start of her career, El-Nasr spent several years serving at the Egyptian Embassy in France before eventually performing her breakout cinematic role in Sawaq El-Hanem (The Lady’s Driver, 1994) alongside legendary actor Ahmed Zaki. From then on, El-Nasr’s star would continue to rise, transforming her into one of the most iconic actors in the industry during the turn of the twentieth century.

In a significant escalation of tensions between Iran and Israel, Iran has confirmed launching a massive drone attack on Israel late Saturday, involving more than 50 drones. This assault marks the first direct Iranian military action on Israeli soil. News reports from Iran reported that some drones were also launched from Yemen, indicating a broader regional involvement. In response to the assault, the airspace over Israel, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon and Jordan has been closed or is in the process of being shut down. In addition to closing its airspace, reports indicate that Jordan has declared a state of emergency. Meanwhile, Egyptian state media reports that Egypts air defenses have been placed on high alert, likely to intercept any missiles or drones that cross over into Egyptian territory. In late 2023, missiles launched from Yemen towards Israel struck Egypts Dahab and Taba, with the latter incident resulting in the injury of a number of Egyptians. In a statement following news of the assault, Egypts Foreign Ministry expressed great concern about the escalation between Iran and Israel and urged all parties to exercise maximum restraint.

  The possibility of Gazans crossing into Egypt from the border town of Rafah would render the Israeli-Palestinian conflict unresolvable and present a dilemma for those going into exile, the U.N. refugee director stated on Friday, 12 April. Filippo Grandi, UNHCR High Commissioner for Refugees, declares that we must do everything to prevent such a demographic exodus from Gaza. I can assure you that another refugee crisis from Gaza into Egypt would make the resolution of the Palestinian refugee question as a consequence of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict impossible, Grandi told Reuters at UNHCR headquarters in Geneva. What is Happening at Egypt’s Rafah Crossing? Since October 2023, Israel has urged Palestinians in Rafah to relocate to Egypt. Israeli Lieutenant-Colonel Richard Hecht, speaking to Reuters on October 9, advised Gaza residents to leave via the Rafah crossing. Yet, Egypt has consistently emphasized that the forced displacement of Palestinians is a red line, warning that it would devastate Palestinian communities and disregard their right of return. Since November 1, 2023, Egypt has allowed over 2,200 injured Palestinians to cross through the Rafah border for medical care, and numerous aid trucks have entered Gaza This content is for members only.
