The uprisings of the peoples of the Arab Spring countries 12 years ago were not for the sake of the luxuries of life experienced by other developed peoples, but they were eruptions of volcanoes that brewed, and the earth’s interior could no longer bear it, so it exploded, and those earthquakes occurred, whose epicenter was in 5 countries (Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Syria and Yemen), but Its fragments and winds reached, in varying degrees, other countries whose governments moved quickly to take positive action with the aim of passing that wave, as happened in Morocco (allowing the Justice and Development Party to rule after the February uprising) and Jordan, which allowed some new margins for public action.

The Gulf countries were not far from these fragments and repercussions, as Bahrain witnessed a major uprising, but its fault was the predominance of sectarianism, which prevented it from describing it as a popular revolution. Its people are aware of the developments of that spring, and its security services may have monitored the movements of some groups wishing to change early.

Human dreams

Some Arab tyrannical regimes were not the only ones affected by the Arab Spring. Rather, they were preceded by these fears of the Zionist entity and its supporters from Western governments. Thus, a solid front for the counter-revolution was formed, whose regional side was not satisfied with confronting the danger on its borders, but rather saw that the best means of defense is the attack on the backyard. Those revolutions, and annihilated them in their cradle before their danger became too great for him, so the coup against the Egyptian revolution was arranged, and the Libyan, Tunisian and Yemeni revolutions were transformed into civil wars, and attempts were made to pounce on the Tunisian revolution, which stumbled a little, but finally succeeded in conquering the revolution from within, and through a president One day he affiliated himself with the revolution and won the elections carrying its dreams and aspirations, before turning against it, and harnessing all the capabilities of the state and his allied countries against it.

The forces of the counter-revolution are mistaken when they imagine that they have succeeded in annihilating the dreams of the peoples of the Arab Spring in freedom, dignity, democracy, and a decent life, because those dreams are attached to man from his birth. of the good things, and We have preferred them above many of those whom We have created. And these dreams, or let’s say close rights, are part of the human being that no one can waive, even if he has to bear their enforced absence for some time, just as he bears some other physical pains until he is cured, treated, or even dies without giving them up.

People tasted freedom

The efforts of the counter-revolutions for twelve years did not succeed in burying those dreams that some Arab peoples lived as a reality for some time after the victory of their revolutions in their first round, as they knew the meaning of fair elections and the long waiting lines in the summer heat or the winter cold to cast their votes in presidential or parliamentary elections. After realizing that their votes have value in governing their country and drawing its future, these peoples tasted the sweetness of freedom, democracy and dignity for some time in what is like a promotional offer for precious commodities whose full ownership needs to pay a big price, which is what the forces of change are paying so far.

The forces of the counter-revolution used all their military, security and media capabilities to suppress the voices of change, by killing, imprisoning, persecuting and displacing, but until this moment they have not succeeded in their mission, although they claim the opposite in front of their audience. repressive and predatory, this happened in Egypt several times, and it happened to a greater degree in Tunisia after the coup of President Qais Saeed, and perhaps the mass demonstration on January 14th on the anniversary of the Jasmine Revolution was the biggest manifestation of adherence to the dream, regardless of the obstacles, and this happened, albeit to a lesser extent, in the memory of Libyan revolution.

The dream was not limited to the peoples of the first wave of the Arab Spring, but rather we found a second wave that included Sudan and Algeria, and it resulted in major changes so far, and it also partially included Lebanon and Iraq, and it will inevitably spread to other peoples.

No stability or development

The forces of the counter-revolutions raised the slogans of stability and development, and they did not achieve this or that. Perhaps an overview of the countries that managed them, such as Egypt, Tunisia, Syria and Yemen, confirms that they are now suffering more than before from high prices, declining production, the absence of job opportunities, and the accumulation of debts. Domestic and international, that is, it creates by itself the environment that stimulates revolution again, and at certain degrees of anger and the inability of citizens to bear more burdens, armies and police forces will be of no use in confronting pent-up anger, which will have nothing to lose.

Clinging to the dream, and striving to achieve it, no matter the cost and no matter how long it takes, is not limited to the peoples of the Arab Spring in its first and second waves, or even any new wave, but it is a global path that other peoples in Eastern Europe, Latin America, Asia and Africa preceded us to, and were able to realize their dreams of freedom. Dignity, ending the military and authoritarian regimes, replacing them with civil rule, and subjecting it to the rules of oversight, transparency and peaceful deliberation. Our Arab peoples will also achieve their dreams, no matter how long it takes.
