'I AM AN EGYPTIAN ... I REJECT INJUSTICE'
What We Egyptians Have Learned from Revolution
revolution has shown us that the regime hates this country and its children
more than we ever imagined, and is prepared to burn the entire country to the
ground and sit on the rubble and corpses of its sons. … The revolution has
shown us that tyrants have servants who all must be uprooted, as they are like
weeds wound around an evil tree."
Egypt - Amal al-Oumma
- Original Article (Arabic)
the youth of Egypt, who have suffered for tens of years until they were weighed
down by suffering so severe that we thought they were intoxicated ... or
people, in whom almost all faith had been lost, have come to amaze us ... and I
kneel before God to give thanks and praise.
the deep sorrow felt over our martyrs ... the uprising which has come so
suddenly has shaken off the dust built up for years and fills me with joy. It
was like a rebel who comes out announcing that he was imprisoned, shackled,
drugged, yet didn't die.
went ahead unhindered, the martyrs kept coming and the crowds kept growing, awaken
from their slumber and on high alert. The regime acted as though the devil had
stricken it with madness and began laying waste to its own installations,
burning its relics and killing its sons.
is the dance of death before the symphony of flight.
[Mubarak] is crazier than Nero, who burned Rome, killed his people, and then laid the
blame for his crimes at the feet of Rome's Christians. Like Nero, after
destroying the country and killing its sons, Mubarak so arrogantly stood there to
announce that he wouldn't flee, and that those demanding freedom are to blame
for the chaos. He even seemed free of regret - whether it be for his
victims or Egypt's state of ruin.

God willing, Mubarak's end will be like Nero's; although the stories may differ;
Nero committed suicide rather than being killed at the hands of his servants.
days of protests have passed, and they're not yet over. They have revealed much
to us and still have more to show.
revolution has shown us that the regime hates this country and its children more
than we ever imagined, and is prepared to burn the entire country to the ground
and sit on the rubble and corpses of its sons.
rebellion has shown us that the police apparatus is nothing but a burden - a yoke
over the Egyptian people. When the regime penalized us by withdrawing, it was
our young people who worked through popular committees and took on the police role,
regulating traffic and protecting homes and businesses.
the revolt revealed many faces to us, singing to the regime and then mocking it.
And today, I stood baffled when the tyrant tightened his grip on the protesters
and released his dogs ... The protesters
thought he had escaped the people, and they rose up again.
revolution has shown us that the people have a will and that they will impose that
will on those in power - and not the other way around. They know the regime
will tighten its security grip, and doesn't care how much iron it smelts or fires
it sets. Because while the people might endure and long persevere, once they
revolt, the regime's iron and fire is of no use.

revolution has shown us that none of the regime's institutions respect our
intelligence; the media carries nothing but an absurd and naïve camouflage of
events ... and its entire job has been to deny what's broadcast on every other satellite
channel which tells us the truth.
rebellion has shown us that if we don't engage our young people honestly, they
become puppets in the hands of the nation's saboteurs and officials. The
protests included Muslims and Copts [Christians]; it wasn't sectarian friction going on -
Copts guarded the backs of Muslims during Friday prayers. Furthermore, there
hasn't been a single incident of incitement, despite the gathered masses, which
included both young men and women.
rebellion shows that the majority of Egyptians is still good people, and that
a few have been led astray by ignorance, their minds robbed by hunger. We must
fill their minds and their bellies ... until they are no longer led astray.

willing, we will reap success the day after tomorrow. With God as my witness, I
ask the forgiveness of the people of Egypt for my thinking ill of them. And if
God also wills it, may I be in front of a computer once more, so I, too, can
celebrate our victory and deliverance.
