(Amman – Jordan) Going through my Twitter account, I found a very interesting article titled “From a Private School in Cairo to ISIS Killing Fields in Syria” with a video of a young Egyptian guy who was extremely frustrated from the political and economic failure of Egypt. Such a deep frustration led this guy to leave his home and fight with ISIL in Syria.
I suggest that you watch the video or read the article in order to form your own view about this case. However, I must state that the main reason why this guy left Egypt to war-torn Syria is because there is no hope remained under the brutality of “Yes Sir” dictatorships.
These dictatorships are the main cause of the success of the extremist groups for attracting and recruiting young disappointed yet deeply frustrated men around the Middle East.
When I watched the video of Islam Yaken, I just imagined myself or others who are frustrated and broken-hearted of the Arab Spring’s failure.
I just have one thing in my mind at this moment, how long can we run away from the fact that there is something wrong in the Arab political system?
We can’t turn our face to the other side not seeing the main cause of this identity crisis. We need to have the determination to change this crony-capitalism into a system that has a room for everyone to produce and have a say in the political system.
