U.S.A. "United States of Arabia"

I guess it might be an interesting idea, I think it is a dream idea. I thought about writing a novel about a leader who unites the arab coutries using all available means to do so in a kind of mix between fanatsy "The Macchiavilli idea in The Prince" and history in "George Washington example and the United States".
I believe that this dream is shared by many many Arabs, everybody in his own way, some people will symbolise "Salah El Deen" as a leader that we need a replica of him and those typically are the ones who dream about a religously based reforms. Others would remeber "Nasser" as an Arab leader - I strongly disagree with them, however this means that the idea is shared and common.

Then I woke up and got the news of the new Government in Egypt and now I would like to Name it, United states of Mubarakia , after Mubarak family ruling, and u know what it is not new to our region, we have Saudi Arabia after King Soued.

That is all for today.....

Long time, No see

Here I go again..!!! last 6 weeks were really hectic and I got disconnected from the blog.
But we got to see what is going on on Egypt, really nothing, probably the most interesting event over the scene would be Mortada Mansour dramatic behaviour.
It is really surprising that some people still believe that this man is a real defender of integerity, How come would we ignore his non-civilized and barbaric style? How come could we accept somebody to spoil a sport event and bring his own cup to give to his players cause simply he does not believe in the rules of somebody else? How come more than 12000 people elected this man to be the President of one of the two big sport institution in the whole nation?

You know, I am not really interested in the person or his acts, which are clearly outragous and if anyabody cannot see that would be blind. I am interested in my original question "What happened in Egypt?".

The absence, so far, of any kind of punitive or disciplinary actions against this man is a clear evidence of how corrupt is the whole system. Also the presence of good proportion of people who still think that this man is an honest or a qualified man to hold any responsibilty or position is another clear representation to how messed-up the Egyptian mentality is.

That is why the next election would not come up with any change, it is simply a re-distribution of the cake, may be this time the Moslem Brothers would take a bigger share which is again an indication of their actual intentions and interests which is only in Power not in change.

The real problem cannot be addressed without addressing How would we improve the quality of the Egyptian citizen so he can pick for himself, this is a serious issue and needs a lot of time and effort to achieve.

What Happened in Egypt ?....II

How the change in the quality of Egyptian people happened?

To answer this question, we may recall the 3 main components of any human being, Mind, Soul and Body.

The mind is the store of data, information and science with components of experience, this is usually built and fed on education in schools and anything that might fill that position "Kottab" in early days, and the mind learns how even to think and deal with the threads of data he gets and its content reflects how good is the education system as a whole.

The soul is the store of values which you get from religions, traditions, social norms and family.

The body quality represents the health status which is a function of atmosphere, nutrition , health care and generally speaking it reflects the quality of life.

Our system destroyed the educational system, -I believe on-purpose- destroying the content of the mind. Soul is destroyed by absence of values, improper religious education and by the massive frustration in everybody's life. Finally, the body is destroyed by pollution, lack of health care and from low quality of living standards.

If we consider the quality of human as a quality of a product , what do u think then about the quality of the Egyptian human product and any other coutry's product.

When this quality improves, which unfortunately might happen in future generation only with no hope to change the current ones, only then might there be a hope.

What Happened in Egypt ?

A look at the current situation in Egypt immediately strikes everyone with a painful fact. Despite the realization of many people of how much we are living under suppression and in the worst of conditions, there are definitely a substantial percentage of Egyptian people who are not aware of the fact we are living in......!!!!!! Why is this happening , what happened to the people?
One of the things that will spin-off from the careful observation would be the fact that people probably are so disturbed and fooled to the degree that they can not tell what's wrong or what is right...? So why this happened and How this happened and WHY.......??!!!! Our political rulers should be remembered in history because they created a new type of dictatorship........In older suppressive regimes, people usually knew what's wrong but were suppressed and compressed enough to the degree that they fear the speech......We - our politicians - developed a new way to rule people through widely disturbing people and widely destroying all the components of the human being to the degree of producing a low quality individual who will accept the situation or would not know what's wrong from what's right, so he would be easily steered or in other word ridden..........
How this happened will be the subject of the next week's article
