From Tahrir to Wisconsin

Dear activists, protesters & workers from Wisconsin, Ohio and other states,

I was truly touched by your hundreds of thoughts and comments on my photos  from Tahrir holding that sign. I thank each and everyone of you, even those who  thought the photos were shopped, but I have few things to say.

I’m an Egyptian ordinary young man, activist and Engineering student. I turned 21  years old last December, I love to read and write using both Arabic and English  (although  my English is kind of weak). and like other thousands, or even millions of  Egyptians, I was very busy since Jan25 with our revolution in Tahrir square and all  Egypt. we spent very hard days in that square waiting for death to come anytime  from air or ground. anyway, what happened in Tahrir is not our subject now,  everyone knows what happened there. the point is that I was too busy to know full details of what’s going on in other parts of the world. I knew that people protested in Wisconsin for their rights but didn’t know more details till Thursday, the 17th of February and it was by luck through a wall post of an American friend on Facebook, then I immediately began to search it and read more, then I decided to show support! decided to make the sign and take it with me to Tahrir next morning (Friday).

Many people thought it’s something extraordinary or something that stands out. but I really want to say that me, and many other people, were raised this way. were taught that all human beings are brothers and sisters, were taught that we live in ONE world and under the same sky, so I don’t see what I did as something “abnormal” or “super cool”.

again, as I told many of you, we are all human beings. we shouldn’t let borders and differences separate us, we were made different to complete each other, to integrate and live together. If a human being doesn’t feel the pain of his fellow human beings then everything man created and established since the very beginning of his existence is in great danger.

Ah, one more thing !

some people sent me messages and posted comments saying that the photos are fake or that I’m not Egyptian because of my skin tone and hair color. they said I’m an Irish with red hair doing leftist propaganda (My hair is not red at all)  LOL I think you should visit Egypt to see how Egyptians look like ! we have the blonde Egyptian, the tanned Egyptian, the black Egyptian and the Albino Egyptian. Egypt is the link between three continents, so that’s why !! I’m 100% Egyptian and actually never been to any place outside Egypt. and here are some of my personal photos which prove that my hair is not red hahaha.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So…again & again…ONE world, ONE pain, ONE humanity, ONE hope !

Now I will leave you with this SUPER FUNNY video 😉

  1. hi my dear comrade….i enjoyed reading your article…i visited your country many years ago when i was a young man in the u.s. navy…..i visited in 1975 when mr sadat was in power….i have fond memories of how friendly we were treated….2 young egyptian men took me to their home for lunch and i really enjoyed seeing your country….i am happy that egypt is finally free and my prayers and fond thoughts are with you and your country….

  2. Oh my, this post certainly tells me how different America is from the rest of the world if that is how you were raised to think! It warms my heart to know there are people like you across the world. Don’t listen to the idiots saying the photos are fake and you’re some Irish guy. Unfortunately, there are a lot of people like that in America. Just don’t let them fool you that everyone in America acts that way. 🙂 I know that many countries don’t like us because of the wars that we waged, but trust me, the American people aren’t very supportive of it.

    This is beside the point, though, since as you said we are all human beings, we are all one people. I shouldn’t be just saying “us Americans” since you are very right about everybody in the world being humans as one.

    I just wanted to again thank you for your support, and any other Egyptians who know of this and support us here. I was watching your country the 18 days that it took to overthrow your “president”, and was rooting for you all the way just as you are rooting us on now. 🙂

    Thank you again, and congratulations on your nation’s victory!

    P.S. I think your English is just fine! 😀

  3. Damned ‘Enter’ button….

    Workers rights ARE universal and it doesn’t take much on the part of any American to be cognizant of what goes on beyond our borders. As was just said at the protest in Madison, this might have been the kick in the ass Americans needed.

    Your English is great – absolutely much more so than too many sole English-speaking Americans.

    And best wishes to your mother in feeling better.

  4. Your English is excellent, and much better than my Arabic, which is non existent.
    With your actions and words you are teaching many people about the reality and truth of a truly beautiful and important way of understanding other people.
    Thank you.
    All the best for your studies.

  5. I have no doubt your sign and your feelings are genuine! I have been watching the events unfolding in Egypt with great interest and have been praying for all of you. The hard work is just beginning for you and it’s a very exciting time!
    I wanted to comment, though, because what’s going on in Wisconsin is nothing like what went on in Egypt. Their “revolution” has more to do with greed than freedom. In fact, it’s more of a tantrum than a revolution and I’m disgusted by the people who would try to portray this as a civil rights issue. It’s all about money and power, power that they aren’t willing to give up even for the good of their state and their fellow citizens.
    Unions in America once served a legitimate purpose. Before laws were in place to govern the workplace, employers could do just about whatever they wanted with their workers. That is not the case today and union members enjoy wages, benefits, and job security most workers do not. While I won’t argue that there was a need for unions in the past, today they have become more of a political lobbying tool than anything else. This protest is proof of that. These people aren’t hurting in any way, shape, or form. They should go back to work and try to improve Wisconsin and quit trying to portray themselves as a people being ruled by a dictator.

    • Otter, of course, has no idea what he is talking about. The issue is not wages, which the Unions have agreed to concede on. The issue is whether they will have the right to bargain at all going forward. Otter obviously isn’t even in Wisconsin, and so should really STFU and stop spreading false propaganda. Like in Egypt where you have plenty of people who supported and continue to support the Mubarak regime, we in the US too have people like Otter who support the powerful elites over regular workers.

      • But when the union leaders are advocating continuation of collective bargaining rights and yet are not bargaining about anything on this particular occasion, just caving in completely on everything other than collective bargaining rights with no fight whatsoever, they are stabbing the workers they supposedly represent in the back. The issue is EVERYTHING that this bill is about, that the state is trying to make public workers suffer, lose their bargaining rights, and be scapegoated for a phony budget “crisis” that Walker created himself by tax giveaways to corporations.

        Muhammad, we are with you 100% in your continuing struggle for true democracy (not continued dictatorship without Mubarak) in Egypt, and we appreciate the solidarity with our struggles in the US. The world’s working people need to stick together; it’s the only way we will win! I only wish I were able to take off from work and go to Wisconsin to support the struggle there directly–but it looks like we’re about to be fighting the same battle here in Indiana. And by the way, your English is much better than that of many of the college students I teach!

  7. Thanks so much for the support, it means a lot to us in Wisconsin..You showed support despite all the things you guys are going through in Egypt!

  8. Your revolution in Egypt was inspiring and galvanizing. I was glued to the television and Al Jazeera English for two weeks, sending my most fervent best wishes. I believe that many Americans woke up because of you, and realized that we are on the verge of losing our own hard-won democracy. We must fight the corporate/fascist takeover before it’s too late, and Wisconsin is leading the way.

    Solidarity forever!

  9. I apologize for mysterious_otter, he doesn’t seem to grasp what is happening in Wisconsin. It is very much similar to what happened in Egypt. The problem is people in the majority (power) want to take away rights from the minority, in this case teachers. I am from Minnesota and have many friends from Wisconsin. The protests aren’t about the money, they are about the right to collective bargaining, which simply means that they want the right to negotiate as a group. The Governor of Wisconsin wants to take that right away. Union busting started under the Reagan administration and ever since the distribution of wealth in America has been trickling up. The majority of Americans have to work two or even three jobs, just to survive. In fact, the top 10% of Americans control over 45% of the wealth in America now. The middle class is totally being wiped out. The problem is in the system. The big corporate lobbyists convince politicians they can’t survive without tax breaks, incentives, etc. The politicians give them these breaks, but it doesn’t equate to job growth, or an even distribution of wealth. It equates to more profits for the elite.
    While the conditions aren’t exactly as extreme as they are in Egypt, the U.S. is not far off. I seriously think mysterious_otter should pay attention to what’s happening in the U.S. Millions are starving, even more don’t have access to adequate health care. Our education system sucks. Why? Because we keep making policies which benefit a very small minority of people.
    Albeit, I would never speak as though I understand what is happening in Egypt, because I am not Egyptian and wasn’t there for the protests, I do get what this very nice young man posted… We are all brothers and sisters. What does it say about a people that thinks it is more important to let people suffer and starve than to invest in health care, education and things that benefit society.
    In Minnesota they are currently debating whether tax payers should foot half the bill for a new football stadium at the cost of $400 million. Keep in mind, we have a $6.5 billion dollar deficit.
    I am sick of the GOP arguing that it is good for a community, it brings in revenues and it benefits the community to have a pro sports team. Well… while this may be true, it is also true that it benefits a community to have citizens that have decent jobs, access to health care and food on the table. Desperate people do desperate things. America’s priorities are entirely f*cked up. Wisconsin protesters have had enough and they chose to speak up, not because of greed, but because they won’t have a governor dictate to them what is going to happen, with no fair warning. I celebrate what happened in Egypt. I celebrate what is happening in Wisconsin.
    Social media has connected people in a way that was unthinkable ten years ago. The events of Egypt inspired the world around, that the power of the people is real, it is resolute and it is a formidable force of change.
    POWER TO THE PEOPLE!

    • I don’t apologize for you, Adam. You have the right to express your opinion! No need to apologize for me either as I have a right to express mine. But we do disagree. That anyone in Wisconsin would think that their rights and freedoms are being infringed upon as if they lived in a dictatorship is ignorant and implies that the sacrifices and bravery of the Egyptian people was only as important as a squabble about union activities. That they would try and hijack what has gone on in Egypt for their own political purposes, claiming “solidarity” as if they’ve suffered in any way like the people of Egypt, demonstrates such cynicism and appalling ignorance of what actually happened in Egypt — it’s truly shameful and makes all Americans look stupid. Shame on the protesters in Wisconsin for attempting to portray themselves this way!
      And before anyone gets uppity — Do I believe they have a right to protest? Absolutely! Do I believe they’ve gone about it properly? No, but they still have a right…even to offend me. That’s America.

      • I wasn’t apologizing for you having a differing opinion, I was apologizing that you were creating your own set up facts totally missing the point of the protesters in Wisconsin.
        The fact is, the thing most important to the protesters in Wisconsin is their right to collective bargaining. The Governor wants to take it away!
        To not be able to connect the similarities in Egypt with what is happening in America and all around the world is ignorant. Perhaps you should start talking to the millions in America out of work, starving, lacking health care, while the elite in America get richer and richer.
        The voices of “The People” in Egypt were heard and so are the voices in Wisconsin and will be in states across this great country. The events in Egypt and in Wisconsin are truly representative of the people. This is the perfect place to discuss this, it shows how similar the experience is around the world.
        It’s hard to have an intelligent conversation about an issue, when the facts aren’t even being considered.

  10. Tahrir,

    Thanks so much for this! It means a lot to a lot of people. As you can see, American’s are not all united on the issue in Wisconsin, and I hope you will not be taken too aback at all these dissenting opinions. Call it the dark side of democracy, I think a lot of us could stand to be a bit more civil to each other. However, no matter what we believe about our own issues, we were rooting for you and we are so glad you achieved what you did!

    Commenters: It would be awesome if we could respect Tahir and his countryman’s recent struggle (and victory!) by NOT creating a huge flame war on his comments section. Both sides, please. Remember, we are on a world stage here, how we debate this matters! And really, is the the BEST place we can think of to have this kind of conversation?

    • Thank you, Johanna. I was typing out my response to Adam while you were typing yours, so I missed your comment in time to amend mine. I agree that we don’t want to take over this comments page and I hope we have at least demonstrated some civil discussion on an issue that we disagree on. I will leave my comments at that.

      On topic: I am very excited for the people of Egypt. I think the best is yet to come.

    • This is exactly the place to debate this. What happened in Egypt is very similar to what the millions of Americans who can’t provide for their basic needs, due to low wages, lack of health care, lack of higher education.
      I in no way was disrespectful. My point was simply this: In Wisconsin, what they are fighting for is that the Governor wants to take away the right for collective bargaining, further busting the Unions. Ever since the Reagan administration, unions have become under attack. The result is that American workers, work more for less and the middle class is being wiped out. That’s why the Wisconsin protesters are fighting. They are sick of politicians taking away their rights. The Tea Party may think they have one up on the majority of Americans. They are about to learn a true lesson in civil disobedience. By the way, there’s a great article in the New Yorker telling how the Koch brothers (billionaires) fund the Tea Party.
      What is happening in Egypt, is happening in America, is happening all around the world. “The People” are demanding that their voices be heard and that corporate and personal greed of a minority no longer have the power over the majority. Bravo Muhammad and bravo to the brave men and women in Wisconsin.
      Egypt has inpsired everyone around the world to demand fairness and equality. When are people going to learn the lessons of history. It’s the typical story of the haves and have nots.

  11. Muhammad – We in Wisconsin have been following events in Egypt closely, and I know that what has happened there has inspired us to take a stand against the injustices (however minor in comparison) of our government as well. Solidarity. And thank you.

  12. Muhammad,
    your show of solidarity is powerful and inspiring. i teach geography at a university, and my students –whom i have been encouraging to follow what so many of you in Egypt are doing, and we’ll be focusing on Egypt in a couple of weeks–were asking, does anyone outside Wisconsin know about this? i showed them the london guardian article last thursday, but am really excited to be able to show them this. the situations–what you have been up against, the years of mubarak’s regime, and so on–are certainly different, but some aspects of the injustice are similar. and the inspiration IS contagious.
    keep up the struggle–power to the people, the cairo way!

  13. Muhammad,

    Thank you for your explanation. My first comment to you through a Facebook posting of your photo was written with emotion, gratefully accepting your support for Wisconsin protesters, but realizing, fighting to keep the right to negotiate in the workplace, pales when compared with fighting for basic freedoms in Egypt which we, here, already have. We support your endeavor.
    When the issue of a doctored photo came up, I certainly had to wonder, and I’m pleased you commented.

  14. Muhammad – Thank you so much for this post! We have been following the events in Egypt closely here in Wisconsin. You have helped inspire the people here to stand up for what they believe in. Your post was so touching especially knowing what you are all going through, it means so much to have your support here in Wisconsin! You seem like a beautiful person inside and out, and I can only wish to meet kind and caring people like you. Thank you so much. Best of luck from Wisconsin 🙂

  15. Muhammad Saladin Nusair,
    Thank you for your support. I am a retired teacher and I never thought the wealthy in this country would stoop this low. It appears that they want to control all of the wealth and have no middle class. They want to be like the kings, queens, and princes of old and the only thing the rest of us are good for is working to increase their fortune.
    I hope the whole world watches the Ed Schultz show on MSNBC. He is a progressive who has had Wisconsin the focus of his program all week. He and Rachel Maddow are the only two media persons who are telling the whole truth about what is going on in Wisconsin.
    Thank you for your support.

  16. Muhammad, we in Wisconsin have been greatly inspired by the events that took place in Egypt recently. We respect you and support you and we love you for making your sign and raising our morale!

    Don’t listen to the idiots who say you don’t look Egyptian or that your photo is fake – they are supporters of the oppressor here, and they are just ignorant. They hate just about everything and everyone, they post garbage on the Internet all the time. I feel sorry for them.

    I have seen so many copies of your photo posted all over the place here in the USA, it is great!

    To those who said he doesn’t look “Egyptian” – Since when are you an expert on what Egyptians look like? I went to Egypt in 2009 and saw people with every kind of skin color, hair color, and eye color. Read more books, and give up on the hating because you will never triumph!

    PEACE OUT.

  17. Hello, hello !!!
    Your web site is great and your love of humanity is even greater.

    I danced in front of my computer when Egypt danced in the square in celebration. Tears of joy ran down my face.
    Yes, we are one people, on one planet; we should love and respect one another.

  18. I wanted to share this picture from Wisconsin.

    Walk like an Egyptian! 🙂

    I posted your picture on my LiveJournal. I feel the same way, about one world and one pain. But here in the US – it is special. Or at least we think it is, because our national media preaches hatred and division constantly. But I think your example has started something here. I think we are beginning to see that we are united.

    As the man in this video of the protests in Wisconsin says – “An injury to one is an injury to all.”

    Solidarity forever.

  19. Just wanted to extend one more of what I am sure are many thank yous that have been coming your way. Your safety and those of the rest of the protestors in Egypt and around the world will be in my prayers.

  20. My other comment had two links so it got stuck in the spam folder. Please delete this one if you approve that one. But for now….

    As the man in this video of the protests in Wisconsin says – “An injury to one is an injury to all.”

    Solidarity forever. 🙂

  21. Muhammad,
    I spent the Day in Madison today protesting the injustices of our governor. I brought my children to see it also. It was the most amazing experience for all of us to see so many people taking an active role in their government. I like so many others have been following your struggle for independence and I am also thrilled with the idea of your country’s road to democracy. I will tell you democracy is not a perfect system, but it has the potential for greatness because it is run by the people and for the people. Good luck in your new found freedom, use it well.
    Scott Wilcox – Wisconsin

  22. Than you for your support. My friend made a sign to carry when we were protesting yesterday, it said…. WALK LIKE AN EGYPTIAN!!

  23. I love this .. I am on WordPress, but not active, so I will find you and add you to that .. maybe even activate it. This is wonderful .. the video is brilliant too .. I laughed a little too hard, but you know how important comic relief can be in dire times. Peace .. blessings and gratitude! ~ Ruthie – Oregon

  24. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! As a Univeristiy of Wisconsin at Waukesha student I watched your country in amazement these last weeks and to think you held this sign for us here! I will be in Madison this Sunday and will be snapping as many pictures as I can. Many here on my Facebook have shown us support by saying “Walk Like An Egyptian” I think I will carry a sign that says this for you! I like you was raised to think of people as my brothers and sisters. I am glad to know I have a brother so far away!

  26. I’ve been protesting almost nonstop in Madison for 3 days and nights now. It is an honor to have you support us. Our fight is incredibly important for the labor movement in the us, but that is nothing compared to what the Egyptian people did. We were inspired by what happened in Egypt and I have a photo of us holding a banner in support of the egyptians which I will post a link to when I can.

  27. Respect and thanks to Muhammad and his brave fellow Egyptians, from an American over in Thailand. Well done on achieving a peaceful revolution (aside from the attacks by pro-Mubarak thugs) and well done for inspiring the other revolutions-in-the-making throughout the region. Peace and justice!

  28. greetings and love from one of your sisters in Eastern Canada. You are walking ( like an Egyptian, of course ) in a golden light that beams down on you from a loving Universe. That Universe longs for us all to walk in that golden light together, and your actions have brought us a little closer to that goal.

    We all are one. Truly, we are. Wisconsin’s situation is not just a matter of union rights. This is about living in a society to which corporations, blinded with dollar signs, don’t call the shots in our rights to organize & dictate our livelihoods. This is about the morality issues of companies paying off political figures to overlook humanitarian, social, & ecological issues. That is a global issue as well. 🙂

  36. Wow. As a Wisconsin native, I am so humbled that people in Egypt would think of us. I followed your revolution very closely and truly believe it’s one of the most inspiring things to happen within our lifetime. Whenever I feel despair at what’s happening in my home state, I remember all the wonderful things I saw and read during the Egyptian revolution and my faith and hope in humanity is restored. I’ve actually already been planning to spend my next vacation in Egypt, as I’ve wanted to go there since I was very young. 🙂

    I have such respect for the Egyptian people who demanded their democracy. Now we need a revolution in America to get back the democracy we used to have. I support all the countries and their people in the Arab world who want to proceed with democracy. Learn from Americas mistakes. There are pitfall and the USA has taken a huge fall into one…….
    WE WANT OUR DEMOCRACY BACK!

  41. Thank you so much for your beautiful expression to the people of the U.S. Although many people here still choose to keep their heads in the sand, those of us who don’t are starved for the kind of open, loving response we finally got from you.

    Plus you are adorable and have a wonderful sense of humor! The political class of this country will have a hard time selling the idea that Arabs are all terrorists, now that we’ve experienced you!

  42. It inspiring to read the solidarity from the Egyptian comrade and to witness the heroic struggles you have waged against the US supported regime of Mubarak. I put that picture in an article about Wisconsin on my blog: http://weknowwhatsup.blogspot.com/2011/02/jessee-jackson-and-labor-leaders.html

    The situation in Wisconsin is also inspiring but the comrades should be aware that the trade union leadership is making it clear that the only issue for them is that the legal right to bargain not be taken away. They have promised the bosses through the mass media and at rallies that money and benefits, in other words, the conditions under which we work and toil is not an issue for them.

    In other words, they are demanding from the employers’ the right to sit at the table and hand over their members’ living standards, that are the product of many years of heroic struggle. What is the point of that? Being in Egypt, the comrades might not be aware that the trade union bureaucracy will lose its social status, its reason to function if the employers are unwilling to talk to them at all. My view is that the employers will back off as the union leaders have promised them concessions. They will not have to make concessions of course, their members’ will.

    On the other hand, the passivity of the labor leaders and the blatant collaboration with the employers over the years has made the bosses here very confident. it’s quite possible they will not back down at all. The only chance is if the movement gets beyond their control and then we will see a major crisis within the leadership of organized labor which will be a good thing.
