Maybe can try other machine besides this machine. And also try FireFox on top Chrome.

FortiOS 5.2 and above will have a new feature that allow Google Apps and block all Gmail/Google services. http://cookbook.fortinet.com/blocking-google-access-for-consumer-accounts/ 
Try to also reset all firewall session and clean your DNS cache. And will need SSL Inspection enabled on the web filter profile. I am wondering if it is blocking any other TCP/UDP ports even though the web filter profile allows it.

where is google.com.eg allowed in the screenshot ?
if you allowed google.services only, it is very possible that the url list for google services does not include the egyptian google

i'm not telling you to allow google.service

allowing google.service is not enough. you have to specifically allow google.com.eg and possibly a bunch of other urls. it will be easier if you log blocked traffic

at the very list you'll need
- google.com.eg
- google.com
- gstatic.com
just in order to get basic searches to work

You can also check out the list of port and service URL for google services

e.g. Google Drive firewall and proxy settings
For the following hosts, [N] means any single decimal digit and * means any string not containing a period.
•talk.google.com:5222/XMPP (needed only for Google Drive for Mac/PC)
e.g. Sites firewall settings
For the following hosts, * represents any string not containing a period.
