Egyptians headed to polls Saturday as a three-day voting period begins on a slate of constitutional amendments to allow President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi to hold onto power until 2030 and expand the military’s powers. The amendments would extend a presidential term from four to six years and cap a president at two terms. They also allow the president to appoint the nation’s top judges and grant military courts wider powers to try civilians. Supporters say the expanded powers are necessary to ensure stability and safety as the military fights armed groups in the Sinai Peninsula. “But it’s a model that recent experience in Egypt and neighboring countries has demonstrated is not built to last.”

TUNIS - The idea has been simmering for three years but Algeria, Morocco, Mauritania and Tunisia have filed a joint bid seeking the inclusion of couscous into UNESCO’s list of Intangible Cultural Heritage. The most basic definition of “couscous” denotes the granules of crushed durum wheat semolina that make up the base of any couscous dish. A hearty red broth is poured over the steamed couscous and an assortment of cooked meat and vegetables is arranged on top of the grains. Whatever couscous variations might be used, the result is blended together and simmered for several hours in the couscoussier to create a warm and comforting dish. UNESCO defines “intangible cultural heritage” as “traditional,” “inclusive”, “representative” and “community-based.” Algeria, Morocco, Mauritania and Tunisia must have presented a solid case to secure UN Intangible Cultural Heritage status for couscous.

The African Union has welcomed the Jerusalem/Al-Quds appeal launched from Rabat by King Mohammed VI and Pope Francis during the Pope’s historic visit to Morocco in March. King Mohammed VI has received in this connection a letter from the President of the African Union Commission Moussa Faki Mahamat, who expressed his conviction that the call, which takes place in a particularly worrying global context, “will contribute immensely” to the efforts to preserve the multi-religious specific character, as well as the spiritual dimension and identity of al-Quds. He also affirmed that the AU, which fully associates itself with this initiative, will provide all possible political support for this Call. Moussa Faki Mahamat recalled in his letter to the Sovereign that the AU Peace and Security Council also welcomed the Al-Quds appeal in a communiqué issued earlier this April.

Assistant Director-General of the International Labor Organization (ILO) and Regional Director for Arab States, Ruba Jaradat has said that the unemployment rate among Arab youth is three times higher than the world average. Speaking to Al-Masry Al-Youm, Jaradat said that the rate of unemployment in the Arab region is the highest in the world, with 7.3 percent in the Middle East and 11.8 percent in North Africa compared to the global average of five percent. Jaradat said that conflicts in the region led to the phenomenon of “vulnerable workers”, pointing out that the Arab region is the worst in the world in this regard. “We are working to support vulnerable workers in countries of conflicts and wars. The conditions of vulnerable workers force them to accept any work under any circumstances,” she said.

Morocco’s King Mohammed VI, Commander of the Faithful, has ordered the holding of elections of bodies representing the Moroccan Israelite communities, said a press release issued Friday by the Interior ministry, noting that these polls have not been organized since 1969. Monday, King Mohammed VI visited several rehabilitation projects of the old medina of Fez and launched the restoration works of “Al Batha” museum and the building works of the Jewish culture museum. This museum will showcase the Jewish legacy, its rituals and specific features, an intrinsic part of Morocco’s heritage for more than three thousand years. This landmark project celebrates the culture and values of tolerance and coexistence deeply rooted in the old city of Fez, which welcomed the Muslims and the Jews who were expelled from Spain. As is enshrined in the Kingdom’s new Constitution, the Hebrew heritage is indeed one of the time-honored components of Morocco’s national identity.

Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is scheduled to arrive in Egypt on Saturday for bilateral talks with his counterpart Abdel Fattah el-Sisi. During his stay in the North African country, Abbas will attend the Arab League meeting of foreign ministers called by Palestine to tackle recent developments in the occupied territories, Palestine’s ambassador to Cairo Diab Al-Louh said. Abbas and el-Sisi met in Cairo in January, where they held discussions aimed at reconciling rival groups operating in Palestine. Egypt is considered a key player in realizing regional stability in the middle east. Earlier this month, President el-Sisi met with the U.S. President Donald Trump for similar discussions, which also included promoting pluralism in the Middle East.

Harriet Tubman (pictured) was one of the movement’s key figures, joining the effort on this day in 1853. One of her brothers had second thoughts and returned, thus Tubman joined them. However, Tubman escaped again, this time using the secret network of the Underground Railroad. She then went on several other journeys to help free slaves escape north and onward to Canada, which had also abolished slavery. The exact number of times Tubman returned South, guiding slaves to freedom as a “Conductor” along the Underground Railroad is conflicting: In some historical accounts, Tubman returned to parts of Maryland and the Eastern Shore region 13 times and freed around 70 slaves.

Thousands of protesters took to the streets in Libya’s capital, Tripoli, on Friday, against Libya’s Khalifa Haftar, the leader of a military assault on the capital Tripoli in opposition to the internationally recognized government. A White House statement said that in the phone call on Monday, Trump and Haftar “discussed a shared vision for Libya’s transition to a stable, democratic political system”. It was unclear why the White House waited several days to announce the phone call. Europe and the Gulf have been divided over a push by Haftar’s forces to seize Tripoli. https://t.co/jy9HANLKTS pic.twitter.com/swJwEsdObM — António Guterres (@antonioguterres) April 10, 2019Libya has experienced a political crisis since the 2011 ouster and killing of former leader Muammar Gaddafi.

But the protests this time around are in sharp contrast to those of the late-1980s and early 1990s. As a recent Reuters news agency report from Algiers noted, the "demonstrations have been peaceful, with people singing, laughing and taking selfies as they wave banners calling for peaceful political change. "The biggest setback that Islamists have suffered in recent years is, of course, in the cradle of Islam, Saudi Arabia. The lifting of a 35-year ban on cinemas has inaugurated a new era of family entertainment. "People wonder," he said, "if they resisted so much just not to give Istanbul, what will happen if they lose a general election?
