Hypocritically Egyptian

Is it just me or the world have suddenly taken interest in Egypt's political matters?! I just wonder, where were all these people before? When did being a rebel suddenly become so cool and fancy?

What's even more strange to me is why are they protesting in Shubra in the first place? What exactly do they want? And, why the hell nobody does anything when Ghaza was bombed last week?

Can't they realize that this was only a distraction to what's fatal? Are Egyptians becoming so blind and acting like middle kids that they can't see the greater picture? Why can't everyone admit that what happened in Alexandria was just a normal fight and the only difference that it was caught on tape?

It's very simple; a church in front of a small mosque at new year's eve, adding to it a note of declaration on facebook to announce that some terror attacks have been planned for quite a time now. And, please don't forget to mention our combination of ignorant feelings of guilt and low self-esteem along the way. If you're not going to shout out loud, "Long Live the Islamic crescent with the Christian Cross," then you won't deserve to be a real Egyptian and everyone will start calling you all sorts of names.

I'm not sorry to say this, but Egyptians have grown to live in so much hypocrisy that they feel lazy to use their brains for a second! You don't need to tell everyone that you're patriot to convince them, you don't need to change your facebook profile picture to declare your compassion for any other doctrine, and you don't have to act like you're soooooo angry of what happened the other day. Because if simply you give a damn about this country, you would have done a lot already. At least, you would have shown some dignity when every single land is presented in an auction and being sold to foreigners. You would have stopped the constant messages of hate and disrespect, which are being broadcasted daily on the news. You would have become better for yourself, you would have been more positive and effective, you would have stopped polluting our streets with your garbage, you would have done your job in a more respectful way, you would have reported trendy thieves.. Last but not least, you would have stopped acting like you're somebody else and started to take responsibility of your own actions.

Egyptians should start getting over themselves and lose the ignorance and useless anger. If they allow banning Islamic mosques from opening their doors for real good teachings, they should expect weirdos and psychos to bomb their own territories one day. If they allow churches to kill innocent women who convert to Islam, then they should expect to see slaughtering in Upper Egypt all the time. If they ban Jews from living in Egypt, then they should expect the wild fire of "Fetna" among them.

Again, I'm not sorry when I say this, but I refuse to be hooked up on such a silly, meaningless matter. I don't need to justify myself by saying "Ana Masry, Ana ded El Erhab." If I did so, then I would only be recognizing its existence; when all of this is just total crap and nothing but a big shitty play, written and directed by freakin' death eaters!

  1. I like your view point it's kind of coming from some one who's really angry about what's happening and some one who wants to be better and knows how to be better, but along the way what do you think we should have done to prevent what's happening now from actually happening ?

  2. Thanks for reading. I think it's not a matter of what should have been done, it's more about applying real justice. Everyone should know their rights and act upon them. Everyone has a responsibility towards others before themselves.

    You can't prohibit people from having their normal needs and damn them for something they did out of pure ignorance.

    And, you just said it; we have to REALLY seek being better in everything. "Zaman el fahlawa eli 3aysheen feeh dah lazem yet2edy 3leah."

    I'm not the one who should present the solutions. I was just trying to express my point of view. There's a whole world out there; we gotta open our minds and take a closer look at the bigger picture.

    This act in not about Religion; it's an evil deed of mis-led youngsters, who once hoped for real guidance, but found none. And, we're responsible of everything that they're going through. Because we simply stay still and watch all this meaningless nonsense going on without doing a thing.

    May ALLAH have mercy on our souls.

  3. I totally respect your point of view Noha! You're ABSOLUTELY right. Everything is really overrated. As you mentioned, people in other countries get blown away by bombs everyday and nobody does anything about it. And the profile pictures and everything is way too cheesy and ineffective.

    And yes, as you said, if i truly give a damn about my country, i would've done this and that.

    You nailed it! Loved reading this. It healed my concerns because it kind of grossed me out to see how silly we react to things, and how things have become generally.

  4. Muhammad, I'm glad you got what I mean and I really hope everyone starts taking the same initiatives you're applying.

    Wish you all the best in your career, and thank you so much for reading. Your feedback is always something I look forward to hear.

    Rabena yehdy al gamee3 :)
