British website: 5 presidential planes and 3 new palaces Sisi lives in luxury and calls on Egyptians to austerity  “Sisi lives a luxurious life despite austerity,” the British “Middle East Monitor” website tackled the life of opulence, palaces and private planes that the Egyptian president lives, while calling on Egyptians to austerity. The website wrote, "A few days ago, Abdel Fattah El-Sisi issued a sudden decision to stop granting food subsidy cards (ration cards) to newly married couples, declaring that the subsidy was the reason for the state's decades-long delay in development. Unfortunately, this decision was preceded 4 months ago by a similar decision to cut subsidies on bread; Thus, raising the price of the commodity, which constitutes a basic food for the poor of Egypt.”  The site indicated that Sisi seemed - as usual - very upset by the size of the burdens borne by the government, and demanded the country's poor - as usual - to bear the costs involved in lifting subsidies. They are required to do so for the progress of their country. However, the site confirms that the austerity slogans raised by Sisidirected at the poor only; They mean nothing to him, while he continues to enjoy people's money, buy new planes, and build luxurious mansions.  5 new presidential planes A few months ago, Sisi bought a giant Boeing B747-8, a jumbo jet, which cost about $418 million, to replace the current presidential plane. The new “Sisi” plane has been in Boeing warehouses since 2012 after the German “Lufthansa” company canceled its purchase order; Where it was part of a deal concluded by the German company with the company "Boeing" to supply it with 20 aircraft. At the time, the German company accepted 19 of these planes, and rejected the last.  "Sisi" bought a giant luxury presidential plane "Boeing B747-8", which is a category of "jumbo" jet aircraft, which cost about 418 million dollars.  Middle East Monitor indicates that, according to the German Fly Review website, which specializes in aircraft, the reason for Lufthansa canceling the purchase of this aircraft is due to two reasons:  The first is that Boeing has included the aircraft in flight tests more intensively than what was agreed upon. In the decade, the second is the presence of strange technical changes in the plane.  The Boeing B747-8 has returned to life after it was included in Boeing's sales orders last February, and the company's technicians began operating the mechanical systems in July. Then, in August, the plane took off directly to Boeing Airport in Everett, Washington state; It appeared on the tarmac under the name "SU-EGY", indicating that it had become affiliated with the Egyptian government; Because “SU” is the symbol of the Arab Republic of Egypt.  Paradoxically, as the site stresses, the value of this plane is slightly less than the price of 14 planes purchased by the presidency during the 30 years of the rule of the late President “Hosni Mubarak” (ruled between (1981 and 2011), and a total value of $ 507 million. While the former president owned “ Anwar al-Sadat (reigned between 1970-1981) two Boeing 707s as a gift to him by Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan, Ruler of the Emirates, and former US President Jimmy Carter gave him a helicopter.  On the other hand, the website indicates that the president The former Gamal Abdel Nasser (reigned between 1956 and 1970) leased a plane to transport him, and did not purchase a presidential plane during his long years in power.The Boeing B747-8 will replace the current Egyptian presidential plane, an Airbus A340-200, which entered Service in 1995.  This is the fifth presidential plane that Sisi has purchased since taking office. He had previously bought 4 luxury planes in 2016 from the Falcon 7X model, produced by the French company "Dassault", in a deal worth 300 million euros (354 million dollars).  The Falcon aircraft is 23.2 meters long, 2.34 meters wide and 1.88 meters high. It has a capacity of 8 passengers, excluding the cabin crew, and can fly for about 11,000 km without interruption. It comes equipped with many services such as satellite phones, coffee makers, and microwave ovens for heating food, in addition to spacious living and sleeping areas.  The Falcon aircraft deal was concluded at a time when Egypt was facing a severe economic crisis. Only 3 months before the conclusion of that deal, the government decided to liberalize the exchange rate of the pound, raise the prices of petroleum products, and lift subsidies on electricity and other basic materials in November 2016.  Thus, the site asserts, that during just 7 years of his rule, Sisi bought presidential planes worth $774 million. Then he comes to reduce subsidies for ration cards and bread on the pretext that there is no money, and he demands that people bear that, but he cannot bear the use of presidential planes that date back to the eras of previous regimes.  In just 7 years of his rule, Sisi bought presidential planes worth $774 million. Then he comes to reduce subsidies for bread and ration cards on the pretext that there is no money, and he demands that people bear that  3 new presidential palaces The website notes that since 2014, Sisi has built no less than 3 new presidential palaces, and more than 10 presidential villas, to be added to the 30 historical palaces and presidential rest houses that Egypt already owns.  The huge presidential complex built by "Sisi" in the new administrative capital covers about 2.5 million square meters. This entire area is equivalent to about 607 acres of agricultural land. As for the presidential palace inside the complex, its area is estimated at 50,000 square meters, ten times the size of the White House, which is only 5,000 square meters.  Al-Sisi is building another luxurious palace, in the style of the White House, on the seashore in the new city of El Alamein, which he decided to make as a summer resort for the government to enjoy the cool Mediterranean air, away from the hot atmosphere of Cairo.  At the beginning of his reign, Sisi built a third palace in the Heikstep military district in Cairo. It is a stately mansion with a helipad, green gardens and administrative buildings. Next to it are 4 luxury villas with private swimming pools, which were said to have been dedicated to Sisi's senior military aides.  The website states that Sisi did not deny that he built all these palaces. In a speech he delivered on September 14, 2019, he admitted this, saying: “I am a presidential palace worker and I will work, is she Leah? I am creating a new country, you think when you speak falsehood, you will fear me, or eh, no, I work, work and work, but it is not done for me, not in my name, there is nothing in my name, this is in the name of Egypt.”  As a result, Egypt, the large country that Sisi mentions, when faced with criticism for spending billions of pounds of public money on presidential palaces for himself and his family, has become increasingly poor with insufficient funds to support or provide for its citizens.     Algerians and then Tunisians are among the list of foreigners who are most fond of Paris real estate   Paris - “Arab Jerusalem”: According to data from senior notaries or notaries in the French capital, Paris, five nationalities, including Algerian, appear in the “Top 5” list of foreign buyers of old real estate in the greater Paris region (Ile-de-France).

On the contrary, the proportion of Romanian buyers increased from 0.3% in 2002 to 7% in 2021.   Another notable trend is the proportion of Algerian buyers, which climbed to third place among the top 5 foreign buyers in the greater Paris region (Ile-de-France).  The Chinese are also showing interest in real estate in the region because they are ranked second in the 'Top 5', and they are mainly found in Paris (3%) and in the small suburbs (5.4%).  According to figures for the first three quarters of 2021, the proportion of foreigners among buyers of old properties in the Greater Paris region was 9.3%, with 8.6% of foreign residents residing in France and 0.7% of non-resident foreigners.  There is a different classification between Paris on the one hand and its near and far suburbs on the other.. Thus, Chinese buyers represent 2.7% of sales to foreigners in Old Paris, a percentage that has tended to increase in 20 years (1.2% in 2002).  Other nationalities are also present in Paris: Italians who represent 3% of sales, Americans (1.5%), Germans (1.2%) and Belgians (0.9%).  In the suburbs close to Paris, Chinese are the most represented buyers at 5.4%, compared to 4% of Portuguese, 3.4% of Algerians, 2.5% of Romanians, and 2.4% of Tunisians.  In the more distant suburbs, the ranking changed again with the Portuguese taking first place at 10.9%, followed by Romanians (4.4%), Algerians (4.2%), and Moroccans and Tunisians (3.4%).
