Being angry for no reason or, even worse, for the wrong reason, as to substitute anger for frustration, for helplessness, or for despair; is the joy of even the inexperienced amateur manipulator, not to mention the skillful professional reactionary politicians and their lobbies who can and are using our youth’s anger to demolish the entire revolution.
They still have the money, men, contacts and power to do so. See how they pressed the events from February 11th till now, allowing some to flee abroad and “Others” to settle their financial haves and, through foreign banks, shifting their fortunes to God knows where. And here we are seeing it live on television screens in the name of “Transparency and Free Information” in the form of that “Farce of All Farces”, and I mean the trial of the “EXs”. I say a farce because the trial should have been celebrated in front of a Special Emergency Court if not a Regular Martial Court, but surely not in front of a Civil Tribunal judging a minor crime or a misdemeanor.
The ideal would’ve been the Emergency Court so that ‘They’ would be tried according to the very same laws they carefully tailored and lawfully served for so long. But I’d say a Martial Court because the governing body over the country is the Military Supreme Council, which entails Martial Laws Jurisdiction, and the charges are not a street fight or neighbouring dispute, we’re talking about mass murders, fraud, embezzlement, office abuse, conflict of interests, mismanaging public property (Lands, Gas and Petrol deals), corruption, torture, human rights violations…etc. The list is that long that, in a civilized country, should’ve brought justice in weeks, but after more than five months, and so many demonstrations, arrests, press conferences, meetings, interviews, debates, and declarations; here we are still at square one.
Let me evaluate the situation as it is right now:
· The Revolutionary Movements are being systematically weakened and sub-divided into powerless fractions ideologically and numerically through misleading mass control techniques. Just have a look at the various labels tagging their web-sites to realize the gravity of the damage. (I refer you to my post last week).
· The Political Parties are being slowly driven towards frontal collisions over political crumbs, sectarian differences and ideological banners, thus shifting their aims from the main demand as claimed from day one by the people’s revolution which is simply: “the complete ‘Purification’ of the entire system in order to establish a whole new one structured to lead the way towards ‘Real’ Freedom and ‘Real’ Democracy”.
· The Reactionary Forces (The Counter Revolutionary Lobbies) quickly overcame the initial shockwave of February 11th and reorganized their ranks to open a multiple fronts for the counter attack by using their followers still working in media, in municipalities, in governorates, in security forces, in intelligence agencies, on private TV screens and sympathising networks like the Saudi AL ARABEYAH. We have to realize that they are using every mean they have to orchestrate the music according to their tunes.
· Foreign Intelligence Agencies operating in Egypt are not standing by watching the events, they are steering the wheel.
History’s teachings are the only lighthouse for those, like us, who are seeking salvation from the darkness of evil and the turbulent storms of life. Unless we would have our “Nuremberg”, the worse may yet be waiting round the corner on the next turn.
