A Swinging Mandate.
By: Ahmed ELNAHAS – Montopoli, November 6th 2013.
desperate effort to find a clear and rational meaning for the political, social
and cultural confusion that continue to suffocate reason all over the Egyptian
scenery, same as in other members of the so-called Arab Spring; I couldn’t find
a better way than to accurately define the terms that no one seem to consider
that, if and when not objectively understood hence properly used, would
inevitably become the source spring of the frustration, hatred and violencethat generously estuarineinto our streets these days.

also be attentively practicing) who supports the

as the subject of Legality, in all the constitutions and in all dictionaries is
always a synonym to Impartiality,Egalitarianism
and Equal Opportunities.
intentional obfuscation of the real meaning, and the accurate use, of such
important cardinals did manifest the signals by which a vigilant observer would
have easily diagnosed the root cause for the failed experiments of the
Islamists to rule over the once known Arab Spring State.
and apart from those principal fundamentals that we have just discussed; we
shouldn’t as well overlook the fatal political errors that have marked the path
of the Islamists throughout their short, yet devastating, experience. For
we can deduct from a simple analysis brought by Mr. Renzo Guolo, perfectly portraying
the Laic part in that regard.
Islamists did not quit understand the true nature of the overwhelming consensus
which brought them to govern; because not all their voters were in search for
an Islamic Society.. They wanted to change an oppressive régime in order to
finally have “Bread, Liberty and Social Justice”(nfa).
these régimes had fallen, the consensus should have been regained in the action(s) of government(s). Instead that consensus was wrongly interpreted as a
mandate to realise a long term project,
mortgaged by the never dissolved ambiguity between a Religious State and an Islamic
thus paid in full the pawn for their International Systemic Reliability, the
affiliated parties to the Muslim Brotherhood did stiffen their muscles on the
issue of Islamising of the customs and
traditions. A choice that, added to the very poor handling of a heavy economic
crisis, did trigger the reactions leading to the defeat: the collapse of the
consensus that permitted the Military intervention in Egypt, and the arranged
resignations in Tunisia.
fatal error lies in the dubious relations with the Salafity Forces in the name of “no
enemy in the field of Political Islam”. The Muslim Brotherhood political
parties wanted to avoid that opposition positioned Islamist Movements would
gain politically while they wear out in the governing process; an option that
resulted in a badly remunerated alliance with the Salafity seeing the role of
Al Nour, the major Salafity Party, in the deposition of the Brotherhood’s
Tinisia, the institutional tolerance for an aggressive Salafism (targeting
women, intellectuals and University Professors) have lead to the assassinations
of two leaders from the Laic Opposition. Once the consensus evaporated;
military, political and social powers joint forces and presented the
consider carefully what Mr. Guolo have reported, we will find out that collapse
of the consensus, along with its grave consequences, can be attributed mainly
to the intentional obfuscation of the real meaning, and the accurate use, of
the four important cardinals which I here above previously defined.
flagrant failed experiments of the Neo-Traditionalist
Political Islam should impose a complete full twist, and not an artful
compromise for a third way.
