Why you made a vote to choose the best person of the year the make choices completely out of the vote results.Shame on you ,you would have been more respectful to your readers if you did not make a vote from the beginning and declared your choices and saved our time.

لقد حذرت المصريين من الاهتمام باستطلاعات الرأى التى تجريها مجلة Time لأننى أعلم توجهاتكم وتوجهات ملاك مجلتكم . وأعلم كذلك بحكم دراستى بالولايات المتحدة خرافةمصداقية ديمقراطيتكم وإعلامكم وقيمكم الأخلاقية . وأنا لاأتكلم هنا عن الشعب الأمريكى الطيب الساذج ، ولكنى أتكلم عن ساستكم والنخبة الحاكمة . وأنا بحكم عشرتى لكم أعلم أن الفريق / عبد الفتاح السيسى قد أفزعكم اكتساحه للاستطلاع، فخرجتم حتى عن المهنية والمصداقية الاعلامية . بعد أن ودعتم منذ زمن بعيد المصداقية الأخلاقية .

The "Free Mandela" campaign was a call to stop this carnage Apartheid was wrong, was illegal, was crime, was terrorism Gandhi's teachings of pacifism helped reshape Mandela's political views and the man that left prison was no longer a young man consumed by hate, but a man with a mission to unify people for the greater good of all. The violence and intimidation of apartheid are what Mr. Mandela seeks to wring out of South African society. During the more than quarter century that Mandela was jailed, his freedom became synonymous with the freedom of his country. "If you want to make peace with your enemy, you have to work with your enemy. Then he becomes your partner." Mandela : "Our men are armed and trained freedom fighters not terrorists" I am honoured to have lived in the same time as this incredible man.

It would have been more honorable from you not to put General El Sisi from the first place in Timemagazine poll as long as you have no real democracy nor the courage to announce the results. .l know for a fact that the White House is annoyed by the result as much as it was upset that El Sisi destroyed the American dirty plans for the New middle east But it was very stupid of you not to expect that result and your reaction is despicable and you have our sincere contempt .

The wife of "President Morsi": I own between my fingers the safe of the "White House" secrets and "Mrs Clinton" fears my bad temper! ************************************************ In an interview with the "Anatolia News Agency", the first lady, the wife of the Egyptian President "Mohamed Morsi" made important statements, and asked that we call her out to her eldest son's name "Um Ahmad". ********** You have a family friendship with "Mrs Hillary Clinton", so is she still a friend of yours, after the "Military Coup" against your husband? "Um Ahmad": My husband was kidnapped months ago, and he will return from kidnapping, and will practice his legitimate tasks as the President of the country, very soon, and sooner than what you think, and the "coup leaders" will pay dearly for their treason. As regards "Mrs Clinton", we have had a family friendship with her, for long years, for we lived in the United States, and my sons have learned there, which have consolidated more, after my husband became the "legally elected" President of the country. ********** Did she drop her friendship for you over the past months? "Um Ahmad": On the contrary, our contacts were not interrupted, and all are recorded, and she uses "Muslim brothers and sisters", formally and informally, to assist her in the management of the crisis in the "Middle East", as well as some joint business, and she relies on us, for her success in the next presidential elections, as we have done twice with the US President "Barack Obama". *********** And what about your relationship with first lady "Michelle Obama"? "Um Ahmad": Our relations are fine, but not up to the degree of friendship. ********** "Houma Abedin", is she close to you?! "Um Ahmad": I refuse the exposure to specific names, but you know that our sons and daughters are inside the "White House", and some critical agencies in the United States, and more than 70 countries around the world, and I have between my fingers the safe of their secrets, that is why they fear my bad temper. ********** Is there a reason that prevents women from leading the "Mujahideen" men?! "Um Ahmad": On the contrary, I currently lead the "Mujahideen", with virtuous wives in the "Muslim Sisterhood", some are married to kidnapped men too. I tell them that their patience of their denial of their legitimate rights, will be generously rewarded and that if their husbands martyred, we will arrange their marriage after the end of supposed period, and that we will spend money on their children. The authorities of the "occupation", fear facing women as well. ********** So, is the budget of the "Brotherhood" that huge? "Um Ahmad": We are at war and Jihad, and our booty, according to "Sharia Law" of the "Almighty Allah", and we spend generously for the superiority of the "word of Allah" and the "banner of Islam". ********** Shall we see the "banner of Islam" fluttering in the Western States soon? "Um Ahmad": God willing. God willing. Once you apply "Sharia Law" on the disbelievers here. *********** Don't you worry about the fierce media campaign against the "Muslim Brotherhood", as terrorism, and attempt to distort their image in front of the world?! "Um Ahmad": Absolutely, no. Our people know exactly what to do, and they do not save any effort ,money or innovation, and I'm not afraid to announce that we are preparing for a "coup against the coup". We are at war and Jihad, and we are so familiar with all instruments of war, ancient and modern, and I keep details for myself, because war is a hoax and my mind will not rest till the suspension of all traitors in Gibbets. ***********

Neven Mubarak The biggest scandal in the history of the Zionist Time Magazine! On the contrary to the rules of the competition of the Time Magazine, which had been applied since 1927 and states that a number of nominee are suggested and readers are allowed to vote, then the top 10 are announced, so that the editors choose one of them as the person of the year, the Zionist Time magazine intentionally ignored the winning of General Elsisi of Egypt, and completely removed his name from the final 10 nominees! Egyptians voted for Elsisi by more than 5 Million votes, which were reduced by the Time Magazine machines to only 600.000 votes. Egyptians noticed many times that the voting for Elsisi stopped for hours and their votes were not counted. At the same week of voting, Facebook and Twitter admitted that 2 Million passwords were stolen from Facebook and Twitter, which had been stolen by the Time magazine, because the voting was only allowed through Facebook or Twitter accounts. The Time magazine claimed that hackers related to Bashar Elassad, Erdogan or Brotherhood attempted to hack the votes for Elsisi and claimed that they failed to do so, although the hacking of passwords and votes from Elsisi had been made by the Time magazine itself. Because the declaration of Elsisi as the person of the year means that the world admits that June 30th, 2013 was a real revolution and not a military coup, as falsely claimed by Brotherhood and Zionists, Qatar, Turkey and Brotherhood businessmen gave bribes for the editors of the Time magazine to remove Elsisi from the top ten for no reason and to intentionally ignore the votes of Egyptians, like when they ignored the will of 40 Million Egyptians who called for the ousted of Morsi in June 30th, 2013 revolution. Why did the Time include the name of Elsisi from the beginning in the list for voting? This proves that the Time magazine is not trusted and that Egyptians have the right to sue the Time magazine and accuse editors for taking bribes and faking votes, in addition to humiliating their readers and ignoring their votes!
