Expert: Regime’s Monopoly over Power behind Political Violence

Every now and then in Egypt several incidents of violence take place, most of them small, having no link with any big organizations, having relatively limited effects, and carried out using amateur tools. The most vivid example of this is the terrorist bombing that took place just last month in the tourist site El-Hussein killing a French citizen and injuring dozens and which no details have been revealed about until now. This incident was followed by the finding of glass containing explosive material in one of Cairo"s metro stations, then the finding of several explosive materials in other different places.

President of Middle East Studies and Research Center Dr. Ammaar Ali Hasan attributed these incidents to what he called "the blockage of political horizons" which the ruling regime has caused through its monopoly over power leading to the emergence of political violence of small groups lately.

Hasan elaborated, "The repetition of these incidents in the last period can be interpreted in two ways. The first is the result of poverty, hunger, and the shameful economic deterioration in Egypt in addition to unemployment, the condition of political blockage that is being witnessed in Egypt, and the lack of true political entities through which people can let out their anger over despotism. Hence, they resort to violence."

"The second explanation is based on the conspiracy theory meaning that there may be a person in power wanting to make the security situation in Egypt seem chaotic so that he could accuse and arrest whoever he wants with the excuse of maintaining security through the oppressive emergency law," Hasan added.

"It is also possible that the goal was to draw people"s attention away from the motions that have been taking place in society lately and which have noticeably developed," Hasan continued accusing the Egyptian regime of failing to control the civil protests that are continuously being witnessed which led it to adopt a new approach, that of distraction in addition to the clear absence of a political alternative, the blockage of political horizons for others, and the absence of legitimate channels through which individuals can express their rage.

Regarding Egypt"s future under the current conditions in Egypt, Hasan explained that Egypt in the upcoming period is confronted with three alternatives. Either an overthrow or a revolution which could be very destructive adding that what we are seeing now are early signs of a revolution; or an explosion of the Egyptian society under the severe pressure of oppression, hunger, poverty, suppression, and despotism that the lay Egyptian is suffering without knowing what crime he committed to face this fate; and the third possibility, which is the most unlikely to happen under the current regime is the opening of true political channels through which people can express their rage and society"s forces can unite.

Hasan considered the third option the most important of all calling on the Egyptian government to be attentive to it if it wants to absorb the boiling situation in Egypt.
