History and Social Sciences, especially Anthropology, have for long demonstrated how a multi-ethnic multi-racial human society be identified as vulnerable.
When part of a given society become indifferent towards the sorts of one or more of the other parts, then we can safely confirm the vulnerability of this entire society.
Let’s give an example.. Back in 1967 and as a result of the six days war, when thousands of families lived in terror under heavy bombardments in the Suez Canal zone, Cairo and Alexandria citizens continued performing their daily routine from going to work to get drunk in night clubs and discothèques.. Convinced that all is well.. Even worse, when the Suez Canal population was forced to migrate to other parts of Egypt, they suffered from having to face the daily intolerance and greedy exploitation imposed upon them in every hosting village or city all over the Egyptian territory.
Same occurred to the Nubians after their ‘Diaspora’ after the building of a useless High Dam in Aswan.. Not to mention the Bedouin tribes of the western desert or the Sinai peninsula who for long decades were forced to live a systematic Apartheid.
Even the Egyptian Copts, the Armenians, the Greeks, the French and the Italian all Egyptian born citizens; couldn’t have had any chance to escape similar grievances of applied social injustice, which by constant recurrences became a norm.
Now the Egyptian society’s vulnerability is even more dangerous, and is slowly sliding the entire population down into a terrifying frontal conflict; and that is due to unmistakable signals:
Ø A single party has overridden the revolution claiming his entitlement to define, decree and constitute ‘The Democracy’, while in fact it can’t even propose a valid economic plan.
Ø In doing so, that single party and its politically inexperienced governing bodies did exclude the other components of the social tissue out of their calculations.
Ø The fragmented opposition, into various invidious groups, movements, labour unions and parties proved to be reluctant to or incapable of taking any serious steps to unite in a solid front, or present a mutually agreed National Program.
Ø The population itself is divided into ethnic, religious, cultural, economic and ideological segments, each deeply indifferent to the needs or sufferings of the others.
Ø The black market assault arms and drug trafficking are souring sky high.
Ø Criminality rates are alarmingly high and showing more rage, violence and cruelty.
All this is making of Egypt a well furnished and fully prepared theatre to host a bloody long Civil War.. Will the Brotherhood together with its supporting and sponsoring allies prevent that danger? Or will they continue nourishing it?
The coming weeks, if not days, will deliver the answer.Pass On The Word.
