هل يعود العسكر لحكم مصر من بوابة قناة السويس؟

تقدير موقف ظهرت منذ شهرين بعض الشواهد المريبة - أكثر ريبة من نظيراتها - في مهاجمة مقرات الحرية والعدالة في مدن القناة تحديداً، وبدا أن الأمور تسير في إتجاه تبرير نزول العسكر إلى شوارع مدن القناة بدعاوي حفظ الأمن وتأمين المجرى الملاحي ومصالح الأمن القومي. وكانت هذه الشواهد تتضافر لتشير إلى اقتراب استحداث فزاعة جديدة ...  Read More »

الشباب والثورة: فقدان الوجهة

كان عام 2005 هو العام الذي تصاعدت فيه مطالب التغيير، وشهدت فيه مصر في عهد نظام مبارك حركة غير مسبوقة في الشارع من أجل إصلاح النظام السياسي ومنعه من ارتكاب خطيئة التوريث، وشهدت البلاد مواجهة بين النظام والمعارضة التي حركت ركودها حركات اجتماعية مثل كفاية وغيرها، كان موضوع هذه المواجهة تعديل المادة 76، ثم الانتخابات ...  Read More »

The Opposition’s Lost Bet on the Economic Crisis

Egypt faces a severe economic crisis that has not been seen since the late 1980s, when the country was on the verge of bankruptcy. The budget deficit soared to almost LE100 billion in the first half of the current fiscal year, and is expected to exceed LE 200 billion by its end in July 2013.

Another Year of Rage

The date 28 January 2011, also known as the “Friday of Rage,” holds a special place in the hearts of many Egyptians and is widely seen as the turning point at which the “January 25 protests” turned into the “January 25 uprising.” Some associate that day with the image of flames emanating from government buildings and ...  Read More »

The Meaning of Revolution: On Samira Ibrahim

At that thin membrane, the hymen, narratives unfold and lives are determined. There, the binaries of the clean and the stained, the righteous and the debauched, the honorable and the shamed flourish.

The Revolution Will Not Be Celebrated

The common, seemingly benign question, “where were you during the revolution?” leaves most partisans of the January 25 Revolution with a strong sense of unease. While it is obvious that the question, whenever it comes up, is almost always posed in reference to 2011's eighteen days of national protests that led to the ...  Read More »

Was There A January 25 Revolution?

The “January 25 Revolution” has already taken its place in Egyptian national historical memory along with the “1919 Revolution” and the “July 23 Revolution.” Assigning dates to these events, whose significance in the modern history of Egypt is undeniable, is perhaps a necessary convenience. Calling them all ...  Read More »

التحرير لامركزية الميدان

على مدار عقود عانى فيها المصريون من حكم استبدادي جثم على الصدور لم يترك لهم فرصة لإلتقاط الأنفاس ولا مخرج فانصرفوا إلى متابعة أمور حياتهم اليومية، بينما انصرف آخرون إلى الهجرة. هجرة خارج حدود الوطن، وأخرى خارج حدود الزمن فعادوا القهقرى إلى الوراء حيث أزمنة غابرة خلت كنوع من الهروب من واقع قاتم وكمحاولة أيضاً لاستعادة ...  Read More »

The Revolution and History

As a historian, I am often struck by a particular misconception about history, widely held both in Egypt and abroad. This is the sense that, once written, history is fixed or finished – that, once a historian has “covered” Asyut in the 1860s or Alexandria in the 1940s, there is nothing further one can say about those ...  Read More »

مستقبل السلفيين السياسي ماذا بعد الشريعة؟

ارتبط قرار السلفيين بالدخول للمعترك السياسي بعد الثورة بقضية الهوية الإسلامية للمجتمع. ومع إقرار الدستور الذي ضمن بشكل كبير للسلفيين تطبيق الشريعة يبرز السؤال التالي: وماذا بعد الشريعة؟ هل انتهى المبرر لوجود السلفيين في الحياة السياسية وانتهت القضية التي تمكنوا من خلالها من حشد الملايين للتصويت لهم في الانتخابات ؟ هل ...  Read More »

عــامـــان عـلــى 25 يـنــايــــر فــي مصــــر مـكـــــامــــــن الــقــصــــــور فـــي الــثـــــــورة

تهدف الثورة، أي ثورة، الى دفع السلطة الحاكمة للدخول في علاقات مباشرة مع الجموع، على النحو الذي يمكِّن الثوار من قلب منطق القوة وكيفية ترتيبها، فتتم تعرية ممارسات السلطة، ونزع فتيل الشرعية عنها، ومنعها من الاختفاء وراء علاقات غير مباشرة، أو خلف شبكات متوارية ملساء الوجه. تستدرج الثورة السلطة لكشف وجهها العنيف الذي تلجأ ...  Read More »
