“Certainty, relief, dawn at the at the deep dark, all would come from the Land of Egypt bring light that knits a great revolution restored dignity to millions of people,” Dr. Sultan al-Suraimi
By the victory of Dr. Mohammed Morsi, President of Egypt, observers, historians, writers and politicians can monitor the beginning of the end of the military rule in the Arab region that started with the triumph of the Arab revolution, that broke out to expel the foreign colonist out of the region.
That revolutions were led by the military with a national horizon at the beginning, then turned into dictatorships and tyranny after military figures assumed the power.
In a state like Egypt, the military figures ruled at the beginning with a Socialist horizon with an authoritarian and exclusionary tendency, that was justified as a need for the establishment of revolution and its revolutionary measures. After the death of Leader Jamal Abdul Nasser, the power was transferred to the military, and Sadat started his ruling term with violent dictatorship.
He made the visit to Quds “Jerusalem” and Camp David Treaty, expelled the Russian experts, tended to the U.S., and opened the prisons for his opponents. The military and security ruling deep-rooted and Egypt was excluded from its Arabist role as a leader country in the region. The military rule brought in Hosni Mubarak with the oriented-democracy and the sole leader. The military rule went on excluding everyone except the military and security figures.
What prevailed in the beloved Egypt prevailed in the rest of the Arab republics, including Yemen. The military ruled and the power shifted from a former military commander to a successor one.
It has come to the military commanders that recently they were working a day and night to hand over power not to another military commander but to the sons. In Egypt, Jamal Mubarak was being prepared to assume power, while in Yemen there were preparations to bring Ahmed Ali in to the power.
Only the outbreak of the Arab revolution that prevented the military commander from handing power over to their sons. These revolutions cancelled forever power inheritance, and the light and beginning came from the first Arab Spring revolution in Tunisia. This revolution brought in a president from the Tunisian opposition, who is a liberal civilian came from the prison and exile to the power. After this, the Arb Republic of Egypt followed this by electing Dr. Mohammed Morsi to as President of the Republic in a democratic and fair elections. Morsi is a civil person who studied in the West, was a Professor in a U.S. university, suffered imprisonment, exclusion and marginalization, and was a member of a whole generation that was oppressed by military. Today, he has held power through an Egyptian popularity, though it was not overwhelming nor majority, but this popularity was enough to make him win.
As is said, the beginnings indicate what will come next and at the end as well. Dr. Mohammed Morsi, President of the Arab Republic of Egypt, started his rule by pure civil behaviors, that are totally the opposite of the military ones. From the very beginning, he declared that he would be the president of the Egyptian people, would give up his partisan affiliation, resign from the Muslim Brotherhood Group. He also strictly gave directives not to hang his photo in any of the governmental institutions and bodies, ministries and public squares.
He prevented anyone from congratulating him on his victory in newspapers, and appealed to all those who want to congratulate him to only send personal telegrams and exploit the funds spent on announcements for the public interest, and enclosed a punishment for those who will not comply with this. Dr. Morsi aimed at establishing a new tradition eliminating the sanctification of persons and making the country as the true image in every citizen’s heart.
President Morsi was angry with the leaders of his Special Guards when he knew that the soldiers stood for two hours in the street under the heat of sun as a security measure to protect his motorcade that will pass through the same street. He immediately gave orders to send them away and not repeat that, as he also asked to turn down the security measures and lessen the number of cars and escorts accompanying him. It is said that President Morsi told the security leaders of his security, “I do not want people hate me because of my presidential motorcade.” President Morsi also gave directives to the Republican Guards to record the names of those wounded in the January Revolution who want to meet him and let them in, as well as not preventing any of the families of the revolution victims and the wounded, who ask to meet him.
He refused, and still refusing, to give up praying al-Fajr “dawn” prayer in the mosque under the pretext of the measures and refuse to evacuate the street and go in motorcade when moving. More importantly, discussions are being made for the formation of an Egyptian Government which Mohammed Morsi want 70% of which to be consisted out of Muslim Brotherhood Movement. This government will surprise us of pure civil behaviors by President Dr. Mohammed Morsi.
But the new thing with regard to the Muslim Brotherhood Movement was what Ahmed Dhaif, advisor of the President Dr. Mohammed Morsi, has said, that two vices will be appointed for President Morsi, one f whom is Coptic and the other one is a lady. It will be the first time in Egypt’s history that a woman is appointed as Vice-President. This is a clear evidence that Egypt will be a constitutional and civil state, based on respecting cultures, principles and religions. And that “the revolution is going on,” as have been stated in the first speech of the elected President Dr. Mohammed Morsi.
“The people are the source of authority. They have suffered marginalization, poverty, oppression and subdual. The moment has come for the people to restore their determination and freedom, and live in dignity without suffering, along in justice,” as Dr. Morsi added.
All of the above mentioned confirms that the victory of Dr, Morsi is the beginning of the end of the military rule in the whole region.
