El Koshary: The Arab Onion

A whole meal of fake news:

El Koshary Philosophy

In case you haven’t noticed, El Koshary Today in not a “real” news site. Our philosophy here is to use sarcasm and imagination to raise awareness of some of the serious (and not so serious) issues plaguing our nation. It is not intended to relay any factual information or credible circumstances, though where possible readers will find news links to the actual issues being satirized herein.

To elaborate, El Koshary Today offers satirical commentaries that exaggerate the evident problems in our society in a way that, hopefully, makes us laugh, but also impels us to start doing something about it.

In other words, like the meal it’s named after, El Koshary Today is about a random mix of uniquely Egyptian “infogredients” that can nourish your sense of humour, but more importantly implore you to demand more from the remarkable (and indeed, at times bizarre) society that invented that very meal.
