What’s the use of writing? Will I write something that no one before me has written? Will you read today what you haven’t read before? Will this article or any other have a role in changing how you think? I doubt it. All that can be written has been written already. Somewhere in your memory, similar ideas are to be found, rooted in what you read every day.
I can talk to you today about terrorism, violence, counter violence, suppression, the interior ministry’s mistakes, the Brotherhood’s stupidity or I can talk about what happened in Rabaa or at al-Ithadiya or about the Brotherhood’s treason of the revolution and the state’s victory over everyone.
But you already know that. So why waste your time?
I watch the TV and listen to the statements of the interior ministry, experts, commentators and Ansar Bayt al-Maqdis who brought the entirety of Jerusalem to the center of Cairo to practice their hobby of jihad against the Egyptians. Words will flow from one ear out the other but this won’t change anything because the dead will not be revived by speeches and the injured will not care why this happened.
We can open the gate to conspiracy theories like those claiming that the interior ministry planned and conducted an explosion to pit the public opinion against the opposition or that the Brotherhood are killing themselves. But you and I have both become bored of this nonsense.
What we are witnessing is the death of everything we dreamed of: democracy, justice, freedom and so on. Fear has reigned over everything and anger is making gains.
The Brotherhood’s attempts
Perhaps you think that because most Brotherhood leaders are in jail we will get a reprieve from their stupid statementsBassem Youssef
