How are you Egypt?

Coat of Arms of Egypt, Official version. Gover...

The world has recently witnessed uninhabited demonstrations, brutal destruction of lives and properties and over throw of leadership in Egypt, Libya and Algeria; there are still uprising in Egypt and I feel like asking how Egypt is fairing.

I don’t think that the problem in Egypt is about who rules Egypt as much as “how does the Egyptians want to be governed?”

Anyone that wants to see the progress of the people in these troubled parts of the world particularly in Africa must look beyond the surface. People who come to leadership other than through a legitimate democratic means will not want to relinquish power through a peaceful means.

People who pose as mind readers and the ultimate rulers who know what the people think and need (and of cause, nobody else knows) and have the magic wand to provide those needs will never see beyond their nose. They are ready to silence opposition, berate and crush criticisms, no matter how constructive, and are insensitive to the point of allowing the killing of the lives they are supposed to protect.

I feel it is time for the Egyptians to sit down and discuss the way forward; that is how they want to be governed and state in the document the qualities of those who should aspire to such responsibilities and for how long anyone should assume such responsibilities. That is the only way to make anything out of the “revolution”. It should be clearly stated and available for anyone to read and it should be stated what violation of such document should mean. If there should be further protests, it should be in defence of that document.
