Collateral Murder

Oh American People,
This is what your soldiers are doing in Iraq,
Watch the movie, and cry on the spilled blood!!
"The hurt locker" seems to be a big lie for me right now,
The hurt locker shows your troops as a human being..
Please, watch the movie and tell me, does it make sense to call these murderers as humans?

Gaza & The Earth Hour

One of the most honest tweets I've ever read on my Twitter Account was a tweet from Saudi blogger say in Arabic :

Actually this is a sad truth, Gaza people suffers from a horrible blockade that prevent them from the Basic necessities of life

They Hardly have their own food and water, Most of time they have no electricity or power.
These are some random pictures
So please rethink how would you feel if the Earth Hour lasted for more than 1000 Days
And rethink how will you feel if you were Palestinian in Gaza
Gaza's 1000 Earth Days

Palestinian Legislative Council in Gaza

Mahmoud Alzahhar .. The Palestinian Foreign Minister

MB Women Day
This week, The world celebrated Women Day, It's horrible to know that there are places in the world that women there are prevented from driving cars!
In Saudi Arabia, Women are banned from driving cars, they have very few political rights (or they don't have rights at all), and the problem is in justifying all these discriminations in the name of Islam.
I believe in Islam as a religion which hallows Justice and equality, So I can't understand why those people who consider themselves as a spokesman of Allah(!!) deny the real pure spirit of Islam.
Mohammed PBUH said a very expressive quote about women and men: "Women are the twin halves of men". This quote -in my opinion- is a very clear evidence of gender equality in Islam.
I can say clearly that there are no difference between Women and Men in Islam, and I can argue about womens' rights in Islam.
Hassan Albanna the founder of Muslim Brotherhood realized the role of women in Muslim Brotherhood organization in the group's early years, he founded Muslim sisterhood as a part of Muslim Brotherhood, and he set Zeinab Alghazali as a chief of Muslim Sisterhood.
Muslim Brotherhood took a good care of women role in their group, and you can read a detailed research about Muslim Brotherhood women from Carnegie here, What I want to focus on is the vision of Muslim Brotherhood towards women and the criticism of their attitudes.
It's clear that Islam do give women the same rights of men, but some Islamic ideologies believe that there are main differences between women and men, this ideology is mainly adopted by Salafis and wahabiis.
Muslim Brotherhood through their history supported - ideologically and practically- women roles within their organization, but women can't have their complete rights within the brotherhood because of three main points:
1- Depression of the Egyptian regime:
Muslim Brotherhood are the main target of the regime's depression and crackdowns. So it's difficult for Muslim Brotherhood to set (sisters) in a leading positions in the group, as an Easterners, MB won't accept to make their women facing jail or military tribunals for instance!
2- Growth of Radical thoughts within MB
Gulf's salafi wind has came to Egypt in 70s and 80s, Muslim Brotherhood was one of the first groups which was influenced much by these radical ideology, the main stream of Muslim Brotherhood community was moderate, but some of MB leaders was affected by this ideology.
Then MB took some radical attitudes towards women, These ideas was clear in the party platform of the Muslim Brotherhood which prevented women and Christians from being president.
3- Egyptian traditions:
Muslim Brotherhood is a vertical slice of the Egyptian community, so MB has the same problems of the Egyptian people, most of the Egyptian men can't accept being led by a woman, There is a massive objection in Egypt these days for women to be a judge. The refusing didn't come from the Muslim Brotherhood.
These obstacles may be the main reasons of women exclusion within the MB, in the Carnegie's paper, Omayma Abdel-Latif considered "Lack of Experienced Women Cadres" as another main reason, personally I don't agree with her in this, because Muslim Brotherhood succeeded in building a very strong sisterhood which helped them a lot in the last legislative elections.
Muslim Brotherhood had their only woman candidate in the 2005 elections. Makarem Aldeery was about to win the elections despite of the clear forgery.
In the last regime crackdown, state security Claims To Have Uncovered Secret 'Muslim Sisterhood'. In my opinion, this means that the regime is sending a message to the brotherhood not to think much of nominating women in the next elections late this year.
Despite of this frustrating situation of women in Egypt and in the Muslim Brotherhood, we can't neglect a real part of the women in the brotherhood, this part appeared with the blogsphere rise in Egypt, in early 2006 and beyond. Names of Arwa Al taweel, Asmaa Anwar, Sondos Asem, Shaza Essam, Asmaa Alerian, Shorouk Alshawwaf, Aya Al feqy, Zahraa Bassam and Asmaa Yasser , These are names of some MB females who started blogging and confronting the world with their identity as a Muslim Brotherhood girls.
It's clear now that the Muslim Brotherhood young ladies are ready enough to tell the world who they are, despite of the famous statement from the former executive bureau member sheikh Mohammed Abdallah Alkhatib who said: "we are afraid of -and for- women".

Radical ideology?
My friend Joey Mayton wrote a piece in the Guardian's CIF. He talked about MB's new leadership and Dr. Mohammed Badie .
You can read the article Here
Almasry Alyoum daily news paper in Egypt reported a small translation for Joseph's article. and they translated my statement from Joey's article.

"" Abdelrahman Ayyash, one of the leading MB bloggers, told me he fears a return to the politics of Sayyid Qutb. Badie has been linked to this radical ideology.""
The Translation in Almasry Alyoum uses definition of "Extremism" to express the meaning of "Radical" !!!

I want to clear some points:
Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt took a strict attitude from violence, MB refuses all kind of violence, they believe in peaceful ways in political change, and of course Dr.Badie is one of those who express the real nature of Muslim Brotherhood.
To be Clear, I'm not fearing a violent Muslim Brotherhood, Muslim Brotherhood won't accept violence, and won't accept the violence ideologies, what I'm afraid of in the brotherhood is that the new leadership may take some "introvert" attitudes, but the recent statements and articles from Muslim Brotherhood leadership is denying my thoughts.
I don't think that Muslim Brotherhood will go away from politics and political reform, but I'm sure that MB will be more closed to face the aggressive suppression from the Egyptian regime. So The problem here is not the MB's. The problem is in the regime's position which close all doors for brotherhood to be more opened and public.
Muslim Brotherhood is the weakest player in the game, and all of us is saying more and more that MB should reform themselves!! We must look at the Egyptian regime and start blaming him for the real political problem in Egypt.

The timeline of Qutbism Era starting!

Let’s start from the beginning: Muslim Brotherhood’s Guidance Council rejected Essam Elerian to Join in the council, after death of Mohammed Hilal, Because of what has been named: “violation of internal rules”. MB Chairman Mr. Akef stepped down as a response for banning him from practicing his authorities.

Mr. Akef told Almasry Alyoum that there was a secret in the executive office and he don't know what it was, but he will try to reveal the truth.

Muslim Brotherhood executive bureau called for a questionnaire for Shura Council to determine when to hold the bureau’s elections. The result was “postponing the elections”!

It was clear that this result wasn’t to the fondness of certain members in the Muslim Brotherhood Guidance Council, And then, they called for a new questionnaire to ask the Shura Council again the same questions in a different way: When do you want to hold the elections? A. Right now! B. After Six Months! C. After one year from now!

The result was the opposite of the previous one, 37 members of Shura Council agreed to hold the elections “right now”!, 32 members chose to hold the elections after six months, And 16 members said to hold the elections after one year!

Dr. Mahmoud Ezzat, the secretary general in the Brotherhood, contributed in Aljazeera’s show: “without frontiers” with the journalist Ahmed Mansour. He announced there that the elections would be held that week.

After 48 hours from Mansour’s show, Dr. Mohammed Habib, the deputy chairman of Muslim Brotherhood announced serious news! He wasn’t aware of the elections decision!

Dr. Habib strongly criticized Dr. Ezzat, and he said that the elections would be “violation of internal rules”. He said that he led the executive office for the last period, and he didn’t know anything about the elections date. This clearly means that Dr. Ezzat controlled the MB without Habib’s knowledge.

Saturday night, we suddenly knew that the elections were already held, and the results would be announced very soon.

After that, we knew that there are new faces in the executive office, and there were some “surprises”!, the official website for the MB announced the names of MB new executive office.

All the names are the names of the old office, except: Abdelmonem Abulfotoh, Mohammed Habib, and three other persons, including Lashin Abushanab, the member who exceeded 80 years old.

Abulfotoh is the only member in the Guidance Council that is considered as “reformist”, with excluding him from the new form of the bureau, we can say: The Conservatives won!

Dr. Ibrahim Alza’farany – the member of shura council- told Eman Abdelmonem from IslamOnline about all the errors occurred in the elections, he told her that this election is invalid and what it’s based is false.

But I don’t want to write to criticize the election’s results, I just want to write down my testimony that I –as a Muslim Brotherhood Member- am refusing the elections, I’m refusing the way of holding the elections, the results of the elections and the new executive office members!

I’m refusing all these points because I want to be honest on Hassan Albanna’s heritage, I can’t accept Sayed Qutb’s ideology in Muslim Brotherhood, and it’s clear that the new office will adopt the Qutbic Ideology, most of the office members were arrested with Sayyed Qutb in 1965.

In my opinion, Mohammed Badi’, the first candidate to be the 8th supreme guide in the brotherhood, will clearly reflects the new ideology of the executive bureau in the coming phase.

Abulfotoh is the one who can solve his part of the equation of the crisis, he should take a strict attitude towards these violations, he should move and he will find many youth of MB following him in his way to reform the brotherhood from inside.

Mr. Akef, please step down
New reports were published on the Masryoon electronic newspaper saying that Mohammed Mahdi Akef, the Muslim Brotherhood’s Supreme Guide will delay his decision to step down from his position for one-year. Mr. Akef is one of the most influential Supreme Guides in the history of the MB and his decision to resign after one session in the highest ranking position within the Muslim Brotherhood is a very brave decision.

So, the postponement of this decision will support allegations of the inability of the Muslim Brotherhood to improve conditions in Egypt; in case their coming to power, since the Brotherhood can’t change within its own organization, how could it bring the change in Egypt?

This article is not the suitable place to mention the modifications which occurred in the Brotherhood since Akef’s first term, starting in 2004, but it’s a must to say that everyone either in the Muslim brotherhood or outside them, noticed the main developments in the performance of the group within the last 4 years.

The Muslim Brotherhood in this period had their great victory in the legislative elections in 2005; they made their own initiatives for reform in Egypt, in March 2004; they also published their first version of their party platform; they had dealt with the self criticism and bloggers in a very good manner and Mr. Akef himself responded to bloggers more than once.

So, there is no doubt that the MB had great developments in the last years within Akef’s term.

But, we are here to talk about the meaning behind Akef’s resignation:

First: Akef will be the first Supreme Guide who resigns before the end of his term; this decision will open doors for real change in the hierarchical system of Muslim Brotherhood.

Second: Akef’s resignation is a message to local public opinion that Muslim Brotherhood leaders have no intentions to remain in the throne forever.

Third: Akef’s decision will be a message of reassurance to the international forces that the MB has their own model of leadership and believe in devolution of power.

Fourth: The resignation will support the credibility of the MB before the opposition groups and parties in Egypt, so it may be a new step towards an effective opposition alliance In Egypt.

But what about the succession of Akef? Who will succeed in leadership of the biggest Islamist group in the world? The expectations are toward Dr. Mohammed Badei, an Executive Bureau member and Mohammed Habib, the first deputy chairman in the Muslim brotherhood.

For me, I’m nearly sure that the next period will be very difficult for the reformists inside the Brotherhood; the next Supreme Guide will not have the same openness of Mr. Akef, and the single crisis of Essam el-Erian will extend to be many crises for reformists in the group.

I’m nearly sure of that, according to some statements and especially a statement from Sheikh Mohammed Abdallah Alkhatib, another Executive Bureau member, who told Al-Masry Al-Youm newspaper the MB will refer those who called for modifying the internal rules procedures to internal investigations in preparation for stopping them working in the MB.

Despite these frightening comments, I’m calling on Mr. Akef to step down, because the benefits of his resignation will be, for certain, more than its drawbacks.

Published on BikyaMasr @ Mr. Akef, please step down
