The only way to speak to a people is to use a language they understand.
Although I despise politics and talking about it, currently living in Egypt makes it hard not to be exposed to it at the moment. I am really against writing about it on this blog, but I felt that this message should be out there (even if it gets close to ZERO exposure).
To those whom are not following the current event in the region, the Arab countries have been suffering from a series of rippling revolutions and political instability since 2010. However, some countries have it easier than others. For example, Syria is currently suffering from an all out civil war between the Shi’ite and the Sunni, where the governing minority (Shi’ite) are utilizing the military to ethnically cleanse the opposing revolutionists. My interpretation is hugely different than what is reported on the news, but I really think that this is the main reason for the conflict and why it is lasting so long.
Other Arab countries are currently suffering from different forms of political instability. However, I try to expose myself to as little media as possible regarding the region’s politics to reduce my stress levels (caused by anger and frustration at what the human race has come to be). I am incapable of watching the news or other talk shows because it makes me shake with anger.
Ever since the Muslim Brotherhood made an appearance in the political scene, I have worried about the fate of everyone in the region. These people are simply barbaric parasites which manifest themselves in societies and use religion as a tool to sway the imbecile masses. I hope that I’m conveying my feelings about those corrupted bastards properly. Please understand that I am completely against politicizing religion or even making it public.
Anyway, the pests (MB) somehow managed to gain a great deal of influence and power over the short period following the other corrupt regime (basically over 95% of people who ever held power are corrupt and disgraceful). At first, they had a great deal of influence and support among the masses. Their tactics were to make promises that would please them and bribe people into liking them or voting for them. They also managed to send preachers in mosques to persuade the uneducated and ignorant with their inhumane cause. All of their promises were lies, some even don’t make any sense. They corrupted their way into writing a new constitution (which was flawed up the ass) that very few people agreed on and forged the voting process. Then they broke the rules that they themselves put. Even though I studied Psychology, I have no fucking clue what that is about.
The only two logical reasons that explain their current action are the following: (1) to hold an international position that would allow them to make a great deal of money very quickly by borrowing on behalf of the country and escaping later, leaving the country in debt and taking the money themselves; or (2) to crush the people and force them to increase the political instability. Either ways, the country is getting fucked.
The whole point of this brief and possibly nonsensical summary is to somehow document and share my twisted ideas about the situation. I used to believe that violence was a tool used by the primitive and ignorant human being, but my recent past led me to believe otherwise. Serving in the military during the revolution made me realize that human rights is not a given and should really be conditional. Why the fuck would I grant a serial killer and rapist any rights? Why would I allow ones who cause so much distress and suffering a way out of their personal fuck-ups? Is it not easier and more logical to just execute those whom threaten the innocent and benevolent? I truly thought about those questions with understanding to parts of both arguments – agree and disagree. However, after being smacked with constant updates about the current situation, I truly believe that the Egyptian society had not evolved to a degree where civility in dealing with certain people is an option.
The thing that inspired me to write this post was the unbelievable naivety of the MB’s opposition. People are gathering in tens of thousands all around Egypt to protest against the godless leaders (I truly believe that the MB are godless or seriously misunderstand the concept of God, not that I am the most enlightened person or even close). Most protesters believe in non-violent demonstrations. Nevertheless, the police have banded with the fucking MB to terrorize and kill these non-violent protesters. They justify their acts as a reaction to some minority thugs. I believe that the time for non-violence is over. It is time for people to show what they are capable of when angered. If the violence remains one-sided, all the innocent protesters will end up dead for nothing. What happened to the days where revolutions came with the brutal cleansing of the oppressive leaders? What happened to the days where the streets soiled in the blood of the unjust and corrupt? What happened to the days where evil got punished and good rewarded?
I am truly disturbed by what my beliefs have come to be. What my hard-worked civility had come to be. How cold-hearted and angry I have become. How much I have fallen from the grace of peace and into the abyss of violence. I tried to be able to forget and forgive, but I failed this time.
And this is not it. I never felt that I belonged to Egypt, even though I had served this country with blood and sweat. The anger I feel is not because the Egyptian people are being mistreated, but because people are being mistreated. I truly loath when humans mistreat each other. I truly loath when animals or plants are abuses. I do not understand why it is impossible for people to refrain from causing pain to each other and help one another instead. However, there is one thing that I understand better than all others around me – and it has to be true. Most uneducated people tend to behave like animals instead of humans (I am not talking about formal education, but education in being human). The only way to understand the situation in Egypt is to watch animal planet or discovery. The case is a very simple case of natural selection, one where nature favors the primitive.
Just to clarify a few things about me. I am a Muslim who doesn’t pray or even believe in it. I have nothing against anyone that is pure of heart and kind. I have absolutely nothing against Jews. I do not believe in the splitting of religions to sects as anything more than a political tool. I do not believe in preaching and or interfering with other people’s beliefs. The only spiritual thing that I believe in is the fact that your conscience (took me a good ten minutes to spell that word) speaks to you and informs you if your action is a good or bad one. I believe that the men and women are equal (if not then the woman should be held in higher regards) I also believe in science and logic.
It actually feels good to have written this chaotic post which was fueled by nothing more than anger and frustration. Although I doubt anyone would bother read this or comment on it, I would be more than happy to oblige to your reported curiosities.
