[Ali Ahmed]
My name is Ali Ahmed. I’m in 1st grade preparatory.

I’m here today to help prevent Egypt from becoming a commodity owned by one person and to protest the confiscation of the constitution by one single party. We didn’t get rid of a military regime to replace it with a fascist theocracy.

[El Wady Interviewer]
“Fascist theocracy”? I don’t even know what that means.

Fascist theocracy is when you manipulate religion and enforce extremist regulations in the name of religion, even though religion doesn’t command that.

Who taught you all this?

I just know it.

How do you know it?

I listen to people a lot, and I use my own brain. Plus I read the newspapers, watch TV and search in the Internet.

So you see that the country is not doing well and has to change?

You mean politically or socially? The social objectives of the revolution are yet to be achieved: economic empowerment, freedom and social justice. There are still no jobs. The police still jails people randomly.

As for social justice, how can a news anchor get 30 million Egyptian pounds, while some people still pick food from garbage?

Politically speaking, where is the constitution that represents us? For example, women are half of the society; how come there are only seven ladies in the Constituent Assembly, six of whom are Islamists?

So you think they are going to manipulate the constitution?

What is built on falsehood is false itself. Even if the constitution is nice but the assembly that drafted it is bad, we will end up with something bad. Don’t bring me 80 good articles and 20 bad ones that will ruin the country and then tell me this is a constitution.

Did you read the constitutional draft?


Where, on the Internet?

Yes. For example, they say women are equal to men in all matters, “except in matters that contradict Islamic law.” But then, Islamic law allows men to discipline their wives. This can’t work in society.

Why not? What’s the problem?

The problem is that it’s outrageous. I can’t beat my wife up and almost kill her and then tell you this is ‘discipline.’ This is not discipline; this is abuse and insanity.

All of this [political process] is void because the parliament in the first place is void, popularly and constitutionally void. Some parties based their campaign on mixing religion and politics. Mosques were mobilizing voters. They distributed sugar and cooking oil to the voters and many other things like that.
