The year of change is past, But | Changes in history and politics

Books – Ahmed Al-Mudallal

Whether we like it or not Everything changes and doesn’t stay the same, including us and those around us, The strong do not remain strong, nor the weak weak, and history is in a state of constant change, Is the world today the same as a year ago? ..

Coronavirus covid 19 in less than a year has turned the world upside down, Until this moment, the world is living a spiral that has a first and has no last as a result of the outbreak of the unidentified Corona virus … As values, cultures and tools have changed, Even relations between individuals, between groups and societies and between states change and change according to whims, interests and the extent of harmony, Everything changes and that’s the nature of things…

As for politics, it is the mother of variables, Whether the internal policy of states, which is subject to changing economic, societal and cultural conditions and the axes of power within the state itself, or to the absence of a leader and the solutions of another after him, changes all the features of the former regime and its organs, and even the laws set by its predecessor, And governments that rotate power even under one leader change what previous governments were in performance, institutions and government transactions, The foreign policy of countries also changes from time to time in their alliances and dealing with regional and international issues, and even changes with the change of regimes, If we look at what happened in our Arab world during a decade, the winds of change came on many things, The components of the states were discordant, scattered and conflicted, The rift between them intensified, The geography of some countries has also changed, And after the wealth of the country was in the hands of the sole leader or in the hands of one gang distributed among rival gangs in the same country …

Arab-Arab alliances, Arab-regional alliances, and Arab-international alliances have changed, A new form of Arab-Israeli relations called normalization emerged. The result is that Israel has won the best luck in most of the changes in our Arab world to the extent that it itself did not expect. So that the Arab-Zionist normalization is at the top of these changes …


As for the world, The absence of the Soviet pole led to the hegemony of the American imperialist pole and what was called globalization, and it was also called the new world order led by America in the absence of a world order based on peerage and the balance of power has changed in favor of the imperialist American pole …

Even when the world was ruled by the powers of the Soviet Union and the United States, it was subject to many fluctuations, albeit less than it is now. And for us in Egypt and the Sadat regime, for example, when it was calculated on the Soviet pole and suddenly turned to walk in the orbit of the American pole and make peace with the Zionist occupation state (Camp David Treaty) 1978, The change brought about by the Islamic Revolution in Iran and in the whole region, after the ousted Shah’s regime was absolutely subservient to America and Israel and open to the West, the West, America and Israel become the worst enemies of Iran, the people and the regime.

Then the main change in the Soviet Union after the proestroika led by Soviet leader Gorbachev and then the fragmentation of its components ended the influence of the militarily stronger Soviet Union and maintained the power of America that led humanity towards neoliberalism. Which means the encroachment of individual capital on the political and social system of states and the provision of protection for it from the state itself … Since the collapse of the Soviet Union, the world has been witnessing dramatic changes, The fall of regimes and leaders, the collapse of states and organizations, the extinction of groups and institutions …

Finally, China’s sudden power emerged, which has been technologically superior to America and Europe, and has become America’s competitor in the market economy and is expected to compete with America in many areas. The facts say that the world is going to a definite war between America and China in a form that differs from previous conventional wars.

In the Arab world, the absence of real consultative institutions and the absence of visions and strategies for advancement, And also the absence of fixed systems where it became easy to change the constitution or provisions of it in favor of the ruler, Although the jurists affirm that the function of the constitution is to maintain basic rules followed by the state that determine the relationship between the three authorities (judicial, legislative and executive) this in the state of law, But it is natural that this happens in light of the domination of the ruler and the encroachment of the executive authority on the judicial and legislative branches, And when the sacred is changed, everything is permissible…

Therefore, the ambition towards change first needs a will that pushes its owner without hesitation, otherwise change will not happen, Change is either positive so that it results in a benefit for the individual and society, and this rises to a state of advancement and its harvest is inevitably fruitful, Either it is negative and motivated by desire, passion and boredom from the state of monotony, regardless of its results, as the common people say, “important change” and this is called “change for change” and this does not make sense, As for the Arab Spring, it was started by the peoples as a result of their urgent need for positive change, then the deviation occurred in the sharp negative direction, whose results were devastating …

The reason is that despite the will to change, we have missed change management and good management, which is represented by the wise leadership that corrects and maintains the path so that the results of change are commendable …

The Islamic Ummah throughout its history has gone through multiple stages and many conditions have changed on it. However, the threats that were exposed to it and the setbacks that afflicted it and the defeats suffered throughout history were coming out of it stronger and harder determination and Muslims were able to make a civilization that surpassed the nations older than them such as the Copts, Persians, Romans and others, But the Islamic nation was distinguished by having a doctrine whose highest tasks are self-building and purification of the human soul, which is the root of change. From it emerged a law that defined the relationship between the worldly life of human beings and the divine law of heaven, It is natural after that to emerge from the faith and Sharia system of life integrated and only to be change towards development and renaissance in light of the investment of all that God harnessed to man of mind and material and then the appreciation of science and scientists and it was natural that the nation comes out of its depressions because of the impact of what he called Dr. thinker Fathi Shikaki God’s mercy (the power of the Quranic batch) but the collapse occurred after the absence of the caliphate (Sultan) and the state of Westernization, dependency and fragmentation suffered by the Islamic nation, which necrosis in Her bones …

Most of the cases of change that the nation has been subjected to since then have not brought it out of the state of loss, misery and misery that it has experienced for nearly a century and to this day. Because it has lost the elements of its true power emanating from its doctrine, So I backed down and got lost, On the other hand, many countries of the world in the modern era have been subjected to great destruction, A civil war in America in 1861-1965, which is the bloodiest in the history of the United States of America, ate green and dry, and then America became the most powerful country in the world, Japan was destroyed in World War II and a terrible setback in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, but it emerged from the rubble to be one of the first industrially developed countries in the world, as Europe was destroyed on its father’s reel and killed in World War II, as historians say, nearly seventy million people and the model of Germany, which was subjected in World War II to great destruction and division into eastern and western, but then it rose from its depression and became one of the first industrially, scientifically and economically advanced countries in the world as All the countries of Europe that have come to life again to become the controllers of the entire Third World economy.

Finally, Indonesia emerged as the only Islamic state that emerged from the state of misery, poverty and ignorance to become one of the economic tigers in the world, which witnessed a great economic renaissance during the past two decades at the hands of Mahathir Mohamad. All this is due to the will to change accompanied by sound change management, Here, the need for countries to have wise leadership that takes responsibility and corrects the course emerges. Bearing a true belonging to the nation that gave birth to her …

What the Islamic and Arab nation lacks to move towards positive change and leadership is the wise and sincere leadership that belongs to the faith of the nation, its soil and heritage, and bears its concerns and the pain of its peoples, armed with the strong will to break free from the American and Western hegemony that controls our capabilities, wealth and decisions. Our nation does not lack any of the elements of strength, advancement and restoration of influence again, It possesses the faith, history, civilization, human population, sprawling geography, wealth and high minds to which the West opens its doors…

Our nation owns what America, Europe or China did not have, These forces do not have the elements of civilization and power combined in our nation, But she is superior and leads the world, decides and does what she wants, While the Arab and Islamic nation is living dependency, defeat and humiliation, The nation cannot rise again and the situation it lives in changes for the better. However, an important and necessary condition is fulfilled, which is self-building and the creation of the true Muslim man again according to the approach of his Creator, “God does not change what people do until they change what is in themselves.”
