الإخوان والطريق للخروج من الأزمة

Said Samir
Said Samir

برلين في 29 أغسطس 2013

يدعي البعض ان مصر بالنسبة للإخوان مجرد سكن لا وطن! فهل هذا الإدعاء حقيقة أم كذب وافتراء عليهم؟ وما هو مصدر هذه العبارة “سكن لا وطن”؟  وما معنى أن يصدق هذا الإدعاء وأن يكون هذا المبدأ فعلا من اصول ومرجعيات فكر الإخوان؟

يعرف جيدا أعضاء جماعة الإخوان والمطلعين على أدبياتهم أن سيد قطب – من مرجعيات الفكر الإخواني – هو من وضع هذا المبدأ.  فهو يرى أنه لا يوجد أوطان في الإسلام وأن الإسلام نفسه هو الوطن. ثم يختزل بعد ذلك الإسلام كله في أنه فهم الجماعة له فيصبح الإسلام الصحيح هو ما تفهمه وتفسره الجماعة منه وتصبح الجماعة حينها هي الوطن لأنها هي الإسلام الصحيح. وبناء عليه يتم تقسيم كل البشر إلى إخوان وغير إخوان وهو تقسيم أضيق افقا وأكثر عنصرية من التمييز الديني أو المذهبي او الطائفي التقليدي.

Terrorism or Freedom-Fighting


Weapons never killed ideas. Therefore, military action against international terrorism may not be a viable alternative. If the core motive for international terrorism is ideological and/or political then those who perpetrate terrorism are not just criminals, but they are also believers who consider what they are doing to be the right thing and worthy of dying for. Here lies the real danger. The whole world is responsible for letting such a belief grow and spread and accordingly responsible for correcting this fiction.

Weak or Nobel – The Arab Regimes

Lately, it is has been hard to write about the peace process in the Middle East. Despite how keen one may be to identify a fair and equitable peace, it never gets accomplished. Simply what is going on in the region now makes one think more of war than peace. The whole region is fuming.

Arab Economic Union: A Dream or Reality?


Political integration among Arab countries has for long time been a dear hope of nationalists,  nasserists and many Arabs. While the economic integration among Arab countries seems to be more realistic, but it is still challenged with the political paradox of power and cooperation. There are different views of economists, politicians, and businessmen, ranging between, pessimists, realists, and dreamers.

Ignore the world’s poor at your own risk!

As attendees at the World Economic Forum (WEF) rolled out of New York in a stream of black limousines, they carried a warning from UN Secretary General Kofi Annan: “Ignore the world’s poor at your own risk.” It was a message that reverberated constantly throughout the five-day event, from conference rooms at the Waldorf-Astoria hotel to demonstrations on Manhattan’s streets.

Democracy and the Muslim Countries

The relation between the religion of Islam and politics is hot topic that got even hotter after September 11. Sometime ago The Freedom House Organization issued an alarming report about democracy in Muslim countries. The question is: Is it Islam as a religion that is against democracy? or the fact that most of Muslim countries are dictatorships for historical / political reasons and religion is not a direct factor?

Censoring Egypt – The Forbidden Rights

(Originally published in Cairo, 2001)

Freedom of expression in Egypt is a sensitive issue linked as it is to time-honored taboo subjects: sex, religion and politics. Suppression of freedom of expression by government authorities in Egypt covers literature and art. Most of the time it is unofficial, but whether expressed in writing or verbally, it is all-pervasive. From children’s songs as in the case of David and Goliath to serious writing as in the case of AUC professor Samia Mehrez’s book For Bread Alone, censorship affects society as a whole.

Humanity still in ‘Adolescent Phase’

In spite of all the modern technologies that are making the world into a global village, and although humanity has greatly suffered from conflicts and wars throughout its history, so-called globalization has thus far failed to significantly encourage understanding and tolerance among the world’s different cultures and civilizations.  Does the monochromatic economic approach of globalization … Read more

Sex and Morality


I was 14 years old when I first wrote about sex and morality. It was an article in Arabic for my school magazine. The title was “It”. I do remember that my teacher Wafaa read the whole article without any interruption and then gave it back to me saying that she can not publish it. I was angry because I thought it is good and worth publishing as it was written for teenagers (and wrote by one). I wrote it in a decent way and was just trying to question a tradition of considering sex immoral in my society while almost everyone is thinking about it in a way or another! I questioned the relation between sex and love and at the end proposed a class about this issue to be taught for us because I knew how my fellow students were chanted by this topic. When I insisted on a reason for her rejection she said:  “You can only publish such things in ‘Your Private Doctor Magazine’ the only magazine then that wrote about sex in Arabic (Tabybak El khas طبيبك الخاص) for some time later I used to be an avid reader for that magazine but my article did not find its way to the target readers.
