El renacimiento laicista árabe muere antes de nacer

… y lo hace por falta de libertad. Tayeb Tizini, Profesor de Ciencias Políticas y Filosofía en la Universidad de Damasco nos hace un esclarecedor relato de la situación en el mundo árabe, sobre la radicalización y la islamización de la juventud musulmana en   una charla con Afra Mohamed para Quantara.de:

Tizini.JPGThe Arab elites are mainly responsible, since they have not dealt with the essential problems of Arab society: the problems of unemployment, restricted freedom and a culture under censorship. Millions of young people are not in a position to satisfy their daily needs. That has the consequence that they look for alternatives. These alternatives can be divided into three journeys. One is the trip to paradise for those who find no solution here. For them, the extremists are the preachers of a better world on the other side – and Islam is the solution to all problems.

The second journey is into oneself. Someone who can’t come to terms with the real world escapes into the infinity of his inner world.

The third journey starts in front of the gates of the Western embassies, in the illusion that the trinity of liberty, dignity and financial security exist only in the West. But the situation in the West has become more complicated. And these people live in a circle of hopelessness, since their homeland cannot support them, and the rest of the world does not want them. It’s precisely in this pond that the “Islamist movement” fishes – and lays the foundation for its theory of death, which starts from the conviction that a return to our ancestors will solve all problems.

    OK, los defensores de otro sistema social están triunfando en su territorio aplicando técnicas coercitivas. No nos gusta, pero ¿tenemos la obligación o el derecho de luchar contra esa situación?
    De todas maneras, la pregunta que realmente me preocupa antes que esa es: ¿Qué debemos hacer si tal corriente se implanta dentro de nuestra sociedad hasta alcanzar un peso específico relevante con al apoyo de sus gobiernos de origen?

    New York Times: In Algeria, a Tug of War for Young Minds

    The two natures of the country reflect the way in which Algerian identity was cleaved in half by 132 years of French colonial rule, and then again by independence and forced Arabization. Once the French were driven out in 1962, the Algerians were determined to forge a national identity free from Western influence.

    The schools were one center of that drive. French was banned as the language of education, replaced by Arabic. Islamic law and the study of the Koran were required, and math and science were shortchanged. Students were warned that sinners go to hell, and 6-year-olds were instructed in the proper way to wash a corpse for burial, education officials said.

    Hassinah Bou Bekeur, 26, enjoys watching the Saudi satellite channels and the news in Arabic. She watches with her mother and four younger sisters in one room. But her father, Nasreddin, 60, stays in another room so he can watch in French, the language of his education.

    “He is not very strict,” she said of her father, with a touch of affection and disappointment in her voice. “We have more awareness of religion now.”
