August 6, 2015 is a day that will be remembered as the day on which Egyptians have completed their first giant step towards a better future. Today, the New Suez Canal will be officially opened.
The Egyptian people are celebrating their achievement of completing the New Suez Canal Project. This success is 100% Egyptian; from planning, to financing, to execution, to successful completion. Millions of Arabs would have loved to participate in this project, but they understand and appreciate the purpose of having this success fully owned by the Egyptian people. We are celebrating this success because Egypt’s success is a success for the entire Arab Nation. This is an Arab success, and it comes in the middle of a period of our history that is dark and uncertain. Once more, and not surprisingly, Egypt brings a ray of hope to the entire Arab Nation, and not just to its own people.
Today, Egypt reaches a new height that will bring into view more heights to be reached in the near future that will bring into view even more heights to be reached farther in the future. Egypt is on the right track, and is going forward.
Those who love Egypt are happy today.
Hope is the stuff from which life is made!
