العلم المصري = al-ʻAlam al-Miṣrī = Al-Alam Al-Masri (1939)
Edited by: Ṭāhir, Muḥammad ʻAlī.
"After “Al-Shabab” was suspended, the Egyptian journalist Abdelqader El-Toumi offered his newspaper, “Al-Alam Al-Masri”, i.e. The Egyptian Flag, to Eltaher free of charge so that he could resume publishing his nationalist views.
“Al-Alam Al-Masri” was published from April 1939 until August 1939, when Eltaher stopped publishing it on the eve of World War II and the imposition of emergency measures in Egypt.
In 1953 the Government of Egypt under General Mohamed Naguib reinstated the publication license of “Ashoura”, but the Ministry of the Interior, which was under Colonel Gamal Abdel-Nasser, who was also Deputy Prime Minister, still prohibited Eltaher from publishing it. He never published any newspaper after that."
