for the integerity of the article, I copied and pasted it without any editing. That doesn't mean that I agree with many comments like the first sentence of the article " In a royal family given to debauchery and excess, Prince Mohamed Ali Tawfiq (1875-1955) was both religious and refined. "

This is not to deny that Prince Mohamed Ali was actually both religious and refined, but to say that most of the Mohamed Ali royal family members were indeed both religious and refined. Some of them were not, but the majority was as I come to learn from the "unsencored" history books, the ones that didn't get altered or destroyed.


To the heart of the matter
By Idris Tawfiq
I n a royal family given to debauchery and excess, Prince Mohamed Ali Tawfiq (1875-
1955) was both religious and refined. Bequeathed by him to the nation upon his death, his palace of Manial is the legacy of his exquisite taste. The son of Khedive Tawfiq, the
younger brother of Khedive Abbas II Helmi, nephew of King Fouad and cousin of King Farouq, Prince Mohamed Ali’s pedigree was impeccable and his claim to the throne of Egypt was just as strong as those chosen by the British to sit on it. Passed over as
ruler of Egypt in 1914, 1917, 1922 and 1936, what must he have thought as he watched the antics of King Farouq, which would ultimately lead to the abolition of the monarchy? What must he have thought when Farouq humiliated both himself and Egypt by cceding
to repeated British demands, losing the trust of his people and eventually losing his kingdom in 1952? Prince Mohamed Ali Tawfiq was the Crown Prince and Heir apparent of Egypt from 1936 to 1952. Denied a serious role in government, he played a quiet part in the background of his country’s history, advising, counselling, warning
and playing the role of patron of the arts and sciences. Manial Palace was begun in 1901. It was Prince Mohamed Ali’s contribution to the revival of interest in Arab
architecture. When completed in 1929, the Palace was an amalgam of Mamluke, Moorish and Ottoman styles, furnished with beautiful artifacts from all over the Arab world. Manial Palace was his home and it was here that he received visitors and lived
with his French wife. The Palace is made up of a number of different buildings, set within gardens laid out with oriental trees and shrubs. On entering the Palace today
we visit first the Salamlik Palace, or Reception Area, where members of the royal family received their guests. The opulent interior gives us some idea of the Prince’s interests. Ceramic tiles from Iznik in Turkey, stained glass and richly carved wooden ceilings, Arabic calligraphy and Turkish decoration all give an Islamic feel to these rooms. On
the ground floor we see a number of framed illustrations from the Prince’s book, The Breeding of Arabian Horses. Having passed through the gate of the Salamlik Palace, we turn right and visit the private mosque and clocktower, which were built in 1933. Built in a North African style, with Moroccan and Turkish designs, the interior of the
mosque is breathtaking, one of Cairo’s gems and a tribute to its builder. A little
further on from the mosque is a Hunting Museum, built in 1963 to house the great collection of King Farouq’s hunting trophies. Row upon row of stuffed animals’ heads and feet, cases of butterflies and insects, ostrich eggs and reptile eggs, whole lions, are the legacy which King Farouq left to the nation. It seems that his appetite for
shooting living things was just as insatiable as his other appetites. There is still more within the confines of the Palace walls. Walking through the beautiful gardens is as
much a part of the visit as seeing the many beautiful things on display. At the centre of the complex is the Residence Palace, or Living Quarters, built to reflect some of the interiors of the Alhambra in Spain. Ceramics from Iznik and Kutahaya in Turkey adorn
every wall, along with mashrabeya and ebony carvings. A fountain in the centre
of a marble floor plays quietly as we take in the beauty around us. All of the magnificent furnishings are original, giving just a glimpse of the luxury and the privilege which were the everyday life of Egypt’s rulers. Further into the gardens we visit a very unusual building, the Throne Room. Built in a formal style, with paintings of members of the ruling dynasty on the walls and a great throne at the far end of the room, this is where
powerful men met with the Prince to discuss affairs of state. Whilst passed
over as king, he could still imagine what it would have been like, surrounded by his own Court. Finally, a museum, built by the Prince to house all the treasures gathered
on his travels around the world and gifts from visiting heads of state, contains porcelain, silver, Persian carpets, hand-illustrated Qur’ans and paintings of the royal family. An eclectic mixture indeed, but one that gives another insight into the life of an educated and well-

John F. Kennedy High School coat-of-arms

From my graduation announcement:
"The crest pictured on the front of the announcement is the recently adopted, official crest of John F. Kennedy High School.
Previously, different crests were designed and used by various classes and organizations from year to year. J. F. Kennedy had never designed and adopted an official crest for the school. Seeing the need for an official crest, the student council, together with representatives from each of the classes, designed and adopted this crest.
The Senior class of 1979 is proud to help in setting a tradition by using the official crest on our announcement.
It is hoped that the creation of this symbol will contribute to a spirit of unity and tradition for students of John F. Kennedy High School; past, present, and future."

Technically speaking, this is not a "crest", but more properly a "coat-of-arms".
