Of what I have read in that busy day is the crowding that is prevailing in the Arab streets everywhere due to words that were written by some youth on the facebook.
Some people claim that these demonstrations going on in Egypt, Libya and Tunisia before them are not but to achieve the aspirations of USA and Israel which adopt the policy of "separate to dominate" to reach the heart of the Arab countries and exploiting its treasures.
They also believe that those demonstrations were originally prepared by USA which wants to replace some of their allies who grow old! The thing which adds insult to injury is the support which some people who are called (by mistake) scholars provide to those tyrants and giving them the ready Fatwas which are no longer avail before that flow of millions who demand for their usurped rights and violated freedom which silence has eaten up for 30 or 40 years.
For such people, I would like to say: Will USA and Israel guarantee the consequences if those peoples revolted? While they know exactly that religious movements of these countries are the most popular, especially, the Palestinian issue is in the first rank of their interest?
I do not think that USA and Israel are so naive to that extent to enter into this serious experiment of ungauranteed results. Why did we put this weak possibility, whereas we have more powerful probability which is: these countries were affected badly by poverty, unemployment, tyranny, injustice, and suppression of freedoms? Is not it striking that those who live below the poverty line in the Arab world make up about 60 million persons, 16 millions of them only live in Sudan and Yemen.
In a book titled "when do peoples revolt?" of a foreign writer, he gives us three reasons for the peoples' revolutions; such as:
1- If their money is usurped.
2- If their sacred sites are violated.
3- If their freedom and popular rights were touched such as: democracy, the constitution, among others.
All these reasons exist in our Arab world then we interpret the matter as an American plot! Is not the survival of these leaders in power for several decades then their seeking to pass power to their children is one of the reasons that erupted anger in the Arab streets? Our Arab world is the only region in the world in which rulers assume power in fake elections and the only region that witness the longest periods of rule and rareness of competitive parliaments elected according to multiparty parliament. However, it lacks the legitimacy of political opposition, independence of the judicial system along with other rules of democratic governance, however it is the only a region whose peoples cry out: by soul and blood. It is the republic of the marginalized people which —as expressed by Dr. Salman Al `Udah— if it revolts, feds up, and no longer can wait because the policy of passing over power to children is detested under any condition, especially, when the period of rule is prolonged with the absence of confidence and honesty.
Then those who are advocating the prohibition of revolutions emerging from religion, and circulating among people that it causes sedition, they do not know that the problem is within themselves, which is silence and complacency of injustice, and not in the revolution and demanding for rights. Do not they know that some of these regimes are based on a contract between the ruler and the ruled; which means there is candidates, election, and constitution which a ruler swore to apply. So, if there is any violation to that constitution, it is the right of the ruled to revolt and the contract shall be nullified?
To such people I say: Surely Allah commands you not to assist the wrongdoers; i.e., not to be a whip by which people are beaten, not even to help them with a word. Allah, the Almighty says: "And incline not toward those who do wrong, lest the Fire should touch you, and you have no protectors other than Allâh, nor you would then be helped." [Surat Hud: 113].
Yes, oppression will never be supported no matter how long it is, and no matter how it is supported by his allies who either the matter was confused to them or they knew the truth but were content with those rulers; because their survival means the continuation of gifts and shaken and defeated positions —by the will of Allah— "The likeness of those who take (false deities as) Auliyâ’ (protectors, helpers) other than Allâh is the likeness of a spider who builds (for itself) a house; but verily, the frailest (weakest) of houses is the spider’s house — if they but knew." [Surat Al `Ankabut: 41].
How weak those rulers are, except for the presence of this group of people who claim knowledge. Al Hasan Al Basry says: "Whoever invokes Allah for a tyrant to live long has disobeyed Allah and His Messenger," because your invocation means to invoke Allah to prolong the period of injustice and corruption. Allah equated between the soldiers and Pharaoh and Haman in sins. "So We took him and his hosts, and dumped them into the sea, for he was blameworthy. * And We made them leaders inviting to the Fire: and on the Day of Resurrection, they will not be helped. * And We made a curse to follow them in this world, and on the Day of Resurrection, they will be among Al-Maqbuhûn (those who are prevented from receiving Allâh’s Mercy or any good; despised or destroyed)." [Surat Al Qasas: 40-42].
Finally, I repeat with rebels' slogans that ignited in me the spirit of hope again; to formulate the new voice of freedom that has been anticipated for a long time.
