The way Egyptians as well as many Arabs reacted to the injury of Mo Salah, Liverpool's star striker, during the Champions League final with Real Madrid on Sunday reveals an aspect of our flawed thinking and understanding.
The story is well-known. This final game represented a dream for the talented Mo Salah just like it was the dream of both Real Madrid’s and Liverpool’s players especially those who hail from third world countries. However, Mo Salah was painfully injured by Real Madrid’s violent defender Sergio Ramos and he left the game in agony, Millions of people in Egypt and other countries were angry as a result.
So far, it’s reasonable and within the expected but afterwards the story transformed into a political debate and random statements were made. The agenda of the Brotherhood, Qatar, Turkey and “a bunch of revolutionaries” became active in an attempt to ride the wave of the Egyptian and Arab “spontaneous” popular sympathy with the talented Salah or Abu Salah.
They said there was a conspiracy to neutralize Salah and that Ramos is behind it and maybe other western and Arab countries are behind it and I don’t know what!
