No One Learns For Free

The Egyptians have been passing through countless hardships ever since the army overthrew the MB government. When they did so, I was expecting the conflicts to somehow diminish. I naively thought that overthrowing the MB would prevent an imminent danger of civil war. Instead, when inspecting the events carefully, civil war is the most convenient term that can be used to describe this state we’re living in nowadays.

The division has become extremely severe, from the very inside out. Never before were families torn apart so carelessly. Bloodshed has become the number one priority in solving problems. Hatred and vulgarity is the ongoing theme nowadays, driving us towards more darkness than ever before.

I have no doubt about the MB being guilty of several crimes, already talked about this before. But sadly their crimes are currently being used as an alibi for further bloodshed. In addition, current officials are blatantly repeating the exact same crimes committed before by the MB, each in favor of their own, with no sign of a conscience.

Revolutions are supposed to awaken us from a sleep, and not throw us in a deeper coma. They’re supposed to shed light and not take it away. In our case so far, our road has been full of opportunists, each seeking a bigger piece of the prize. A prize that is covered in blood of martyrs, and sweat and agony of those who are still alive. But non of that is important, as long as you do not care for anyone other than yourself.

The One who united all of us before, three years ago, is capable of doing so once again at the right time. Maybe we need some time to reflect and learn. Maybe we need to be reminded that everything happens for a reason. After all, no one learns a lesson for free.

May Allah be with us all

Down goes the rule of the Muslim Brotherhood

The consequences of arrogance, lies, and deceit in the name of God must be severe. Malignancy of such acts will chase those spreading them, as well as those spectating in silence. It is our duty, as followers of Abrahamic religions, to utilize the lessons learned from the story of Pharaoh and Moses, and never stand in silence in the face of similar nowadays activities.

The Muslim Brotherhood, from their biggest leaders to their smallest, were a perfect example of how religion can be used to manipulate people’s political influences. How, in the name of God, those leaders were exploiting the religious illiteracy of the vast majority of the people, using it to their advantage to achieve absolute power over the country.

Luckily in Egypt, during the past twelve months, significant amount of effort was exerted in various forms to educate the people about how religion can be used in politics, and how that can affect both religion and politics. The extraordinary reputable, Dr. Bassem Youssef, takes credit for introducing this analogy to his vast viewers on his famous tv show Albernameg.

As a result, on the 30th of June of 2013, Egypt was the host of one of the largest gatherings of human beings in a political event in the history of mankind. Millions of protesters marched in streets all over the country demanding the removal of the fascist MB regime; A regime which has succeeded in nothing but uniting all of the people, with their different political orientations, against it.

Back in 2011, when large amounts of people went to the streets demanding the removal of the Mubarak regime, the Supreme Council of Armed Forces forced Mubarak to step down, and eventually after 18 days of struggling, he did so to prevent further bloodshed. Similarly, when SCAF observed the massive amounts of people in the streets this year, they demanded the currently isolated Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi to step down, as the majority of the people no longer demand him nor the MB in power.

Contrary to what Mubarak did, Morsi declined to step down, clinging to his right to continue his presidential term, claiming that he has came to presidency through a democratic election, and that now he has an electoral legitimacy.

Neglecting the massive demonstrations against him, he gave a speech on national tv asking his supporters not to get driven by lies, and to hold on tight to his electoral legitimacy by any means necessary. A speech that has led to a division between the people, with some supporting him gathered at Rabaa mosque, and those opposing him gathered elsewhere.

On the 3rd of July, the SCAF being supported by the majority of the people, took the decision to isolate Mohammed Morsi, throwing him and his MB regime out of power, and announcing a roadmap of administrating the country during a fixed period of time until a newly democratic, candid presidential election takes place.

Since then, Egypt has been facing terrorism in its worst forms. Apparently, the MB decided to do what they do best; They gathered the poor who would do anything for money, as well as the religiously illiterate who could easily be deceived into thinking that what’s happening now is a war on Islam, and declared war against the millions in the streets who demonstrated against Mohammed Morsi. Unfortunately, it wasn’t before dozens being killed and hundreds being injured, that the Egyptian army intervened to stop bloodshed.

Till this moment, there are still MB supporters occupying the area around Rabaa mosque, demanding the return of Morsi to the presidency.

The problem of the MB is that they’re trying to find a secure way out of this dilemma; An alternate way other than being sent for trial in court, which is close to impossible right now. They were hoping to turn Egypt into Syria; Letting the Army fight the people for the sake of the president. Fortunately in our case, the army chose the side of its own people who happen to be their families and loved ones.

On the other side of the planet, president Barack Obama had some sort of demonstration blindness. He’d also neglected the millions in the streets who are demanding Morsi to leave, and emphasized his support for Mohammed Morsi, claiming that Morsi had every right to stay in power, and has threatened to cut the US aid on Egypt, unless Morsi returns as a president.

Apparently, the US policy was settled upon the continuance of terrorist groups ruling the middle east, and now that the great MB is down in Egypt, the carpet was swept off their feet.

May Allah be with us all against any form of terrorism.

Peace

Different Types of Masks

Its funny how we sometimes hide our true personality behind a more acceptable mask or appearance to look better or to appeal to as many people as possible. Sometimes it’s our family and loved ones who get to see the genuine side of ours. Other times our true identity is never shown to any human beings other than ourselves.

It’s even more funny I used the word “personality” followed by the word “mask”. For your info, the word “personality” comes from the Latin word “persona” which means mask, which makes allot of sense.

Prior to any elections, politicians will always wear masks that identifies them as one of the people to gain as many votes as possible, while in fact they could be the furthest from this identification. Company sales representatives will always wear masks that identifies their company as the best in its field, regardless to where the truth lies. Celebrities are sometimes willing to wear masks of whatever company willing to pay them the greatest amount of money and fortune, in return for an advertisement!

But recently in Egypt, a powerful new influential form of deceit has risen, which is the religious masks phenomenon. I personally wasn’t aware of the magnitude of this problem, until I began to see its impact on the people.

It’s based on falsely convincing the people around you that you have a message to deliver in the name of God, while in reality you’re looking for achieving your own personal benefits and purposes. In Egypt’s case, a group of people calling themselves the “Muslim Brotherhood” as well as other political parties, wore religious masks in order to gain parliamentary seats and achieve absolute power over the country.

These parties, with their highly intelligence and co-ordination all over the country, have succeeded in exploiting the ignorance of the Egyptian people, among whom were religiously, politically, and even linguistic illiterates, to their own political benefit. They deliberately deceived them into thinking that they are living in a non-Muslim world, and that Egypt badly needs them to be in charge for the sake of Islam. As a result, they were blindly given most of the votes from the poor illiterate people, whom alone form about 30% of the Egyptian population, and they won about 65% of the parliament, followed by a re-vote between one of them, Mohamed Morsi, and one of the former regime candidates, Ahmed Shafiq.

After winning the presidential elections, I thought the activities hiding behind religious masks would come to an end. But on the contrary, it was spread to a more dangerous zone where it can deceive more and more religiously and politically illiterates, the Egyptian media. Nowadays you find the so called “Sheikhs” and “Imams” appearing on their private media channels, approving every single word coming from President Morsi or his regime as if they were claiming that they are actually descendants of the holy Prophet Muhammad, may Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him, and that they should not be questioned!

Of course logically now any one with the opposition side is now, God forbid, against Allah and his Prophet, and should be treated as if they were enemies of Islam. And they are actually treated this way now.

A few months earlier from today, a group of protesters were gathered at the Ittihadiya Palace with their tents and “Nesto” cheese, opposing the new incompatible constitution, while another group of religiously motivated people suddenly attacked them, tortured whoever fell in their hands in the name of Allah, claiming that those were thugs who needed discipline.

Now if any religiously illiterate person saw what happened on that day, the stereotyping of Muslims to violence will no longer be a stereotype. It will be a fact that Islam is a religion that encourages violence when all the people around the globe watch us kill each other over differences in political views.

The leaders responsible for this incident are well known, and we do have solid proof on social networking sites that proves the fact that they were heading towards Ittihadya Palace to show those protesters some discipline. But none of whom were questioned, in fact they are still to this day misleading people on TV and the internet, as if nothing has ever happened!

I see the main problem in pure ignorant large amounts of people, following false leaders who are in fact misleading them from the right path. All of this originated from the idea of politicians wearing religious masks to intentionally deceive the young religiously illiterate people into believing that those leaders have a straight connection to Allah, and therefore worth dying for.

In conclusion, we need to know our religion, our Islam, where there is no one whatsoever between you and Allah in this epoch. A mosque is a place where you pray and learn your religion, not a place where you should be hearing political arguments. A parliament is where you should be hearing political arguments. A politician is either a politician or an Islamic preacher, as we’ve all seen what this can lead to in the end.

Oh and one more thing, Morsi and his regime are not descendants of the holy Prophet Muhammad, may Allah’s blessings and peace be upon him. They are part of the religious masks phenomenon and should be sent for trials in court on charges of deceit, torture and murder.

May Allah be with us all

A Message to the Islamists

So that’s how it goes around here. The smart thinks he’s the smartest ass around, not knowing that every little detail is clearer than water. We are friends as long as it is safe. But if we ever fall in water, I may have to drown you in order to live. That’s today’s ideology of some people growing their beards, shortening their pants and, unfortunately, carrying a Muslim ID.

I remember the date quite well. On the 19th of November 2011, there were protesters “AKA martyr’s relatives” occupying Tahrir square, chanting against SCAF when the police forces scattered them by force. Back then, those people who grow their beards, shorten their pants and, unfortunately, carry a Muslim ID, claimed that those, who were scattered by the forces, were a bunch of thugs who had the intention to hinder the parliamentary elections. Out of which were 41 killed and thousands seriously injured.

Days went by and those people who grow their beards, shorten their pants and, unfortunately, carry a Muslim ID, won 65% of the parliamentary chairs. Which gave them the power to speak in the name of the Revolution, and guess what? They became best friends with SCAF! So any idiot chanting against SCAF is someone who has really bad intentions.

But Good Lord, nothing ever lasts! It seems like they forgot about their pinky promise and the devil played his role in splitting them apart, pity.

The thing is, no one gets away with it unless you’re an asshole, and you’re not. Every little detail is clear to the third person who is watching, the two sides always see from their point of view.

If we ever have to unite with you again it’ll be for the bigger benefit, Egypt. Otherwise you’ll always stay a douche, who thinks that Allah will forgive him for growing his beard, shortening his pants and, unfortunately, carrying a Muslim ID.

May Allah be with us all..

Peace!
