    The Arab Awakening! One step towards Islam or the Devil?

    The downfall of the professional swindler Bin Ali the tyrant of Tunisia has led to the uprising of Arabs all over the Arab world. One hundred and sixty millions of Arabs, mostly Muslims, suffer under the absolute dictatorship aegis of few despots, who have no fear of God nor anyone. They themselves became gods in their own right. From the decadent Monarchy of the spoiled boy of Morocco and his twin brother of Jordan, and their big brother the Saudi king, to all president despots, it is the absolute one-man-rule.

    Whether it is in the psychological make up of the Arab character to submit itself to tyranny and accept humiliation and slavery, or it is the mighty tyrnt who dictates his rule by force, it comes round to the same thing.

    Arabs are being dominated and for centuries so. There was no one revolution in the whole history of the Arab people. Simple military subversions and putsches. When the new regime come to power the one man ruler emerges his head and rules with all his might.

    He builds up a strong army and police coercive forces, the dogs of the sultan, and a subservient administration executing his personal will.

    Arab tyrants become despots for their people allow them to do so.

    In North African Arab states the phenomenon of Pharaoh has dominated the lives of the people for thousands of years. In Eastern part of the Arab countries kings, caliphs and emirs have dominated the Arabs with their powerful forces.

    Islam was misused as a submission force to accept rulers and tyrants. The caliphs were absolute rulers and this the Arabs have well inherited and well implemented.

    Some imbesilce imposters like al-Mawardi and Ibn Taymiyyeh , as false propaganda for the absolute rule proclaimed falsehood to Islam and claimed that : ‘Sixty years under a tyrant leader(Imam) are better than one day without a leader. They have injected poison the hearts of Muslims and thus Muslims have submitted themselves to the leader, be it an Imam and Caliph or a president or king, or even a lousy emir.

    It is not the fault of Hitler but it is rather the fault who accepts Hitler and concede to Hitlerian tyranny.

    And so is in the Arab world.

    Now the Arab awaking is becoming reality, but it lack solid ideologies, for socialist and capitalist ideologies are bankrupt and so all the false ideologies brought up by Arab states. They miss out on the whole point regarding the purpose of human existence. They miss out on the same thing, that making man at the centre of the universe and not God.

    Thus, Arab awaking, if not crushed under the power of its tyrants can reach perhaps a solution. But without a motoring solid monitor they cannot advance and like grains of sand would whither away.

    What is needed is a solid framework of a society and this can be only offered by Islam.

    Islam in essence and in form is a direct democracy of a constant and effective system of referendums where all Muslims, as dictated by Islamic Law ) the Shari ‘ah) must mutually consult in conducting their affairs as the Qur'an canonic law prescribes.

    Arabs in order to fight the tyranny of their dictators ought to implement Islam and not a la Saudi false wahhabist and Salafist movements where an Imam is necessary for the Muslims.

    In Islam there is no Imam nor caliph but all Muslims conduct their affairs by mutually consult one another, whether in a family affairs or in the whole community of Muslims namely the Muslim Ummah.

    First tyrant must be done away with as Islam prescribes, then the rule of God must be implemented as it is in Islam and Muslims come together to form one unit and decide their affairs in referendums. The role of their administrations is only to apply the rule of God and whenever it is necessary the rule of the people, in absence of any Islamic commandment.

    What can be observed in the Arab awakening is Islam attempting to raise its head but always suffucated by secularist and nationalist movements.

    If Islam is dead in the hearts of Muslims this explains the weak tendencies for Islam revivalism in the Arab countries. If islam is weak in the hearts of Msulims then Muslims seek other ideologies to fit their dreams of a state if islam has lost its grip on the hearts of the believers and belief in God is only expressed by slogans and animalistic shouts out of fear and cheap hope then Islam is doomed to fail. Only when Muslims in the Arab world awake and come back to their true and strong belief then they become true believers and seek Islam as the law for their societies and the mode of life they want. but as long as islam remaisn weak in the hearts of most of the Arabs then it cannot see the light. Arabs remain Arabs borrowing western and eastern ideologies to satisfy their inferiority complexes and proving to the world they are not Ben Laddens.

    This is interesting. And who is to decide what the rule of God is? You? Or some holy man in a turban? The Koran, like other religious books, was written by priests in the years after Muhammad, not God. Who knows what lies and tall tales they included in their writings? For centuries, the Jews told us that their Torah was dictated to Moses by God, but today, because of our advanced knowledge, we know that the Torah was put together by Levite priests in Babylon in the 6th Century B.C., hundreds of years after Moses. How interesting it is that, in the 21st Century, people still believe in myths---especially in the Middle East. And that is why the Islamic people are stunted in their advance. Five hundred years from now, they will be lagging behind the West. Islam badly needs a reformation if it is to advance; a reformation like the one Christianity went through in the 16th Century---which tamed the tyranny of the Catholic Church and wised it up to the horrors it was committing on ordinary people. Otherwise, you can forget it. Stop dreaming that, if only tyrants can be replaced by Shariah law, or the commandments of the Koran, that everything will be honkey-dorey for the Islamic people. What nonsense.
