My friend, Bassem Sabry, died suddenly on April 29.  There have been many moving tributes to his memory over the last few weeks.  I do not have much to add other than the fact that Bassem was a light unto Egyptians and all his friends around the world.

I have reposted his two contributions to the “From the Potomac to the Euphrates” and a tribute from his friend, Hisham Hellyer.
