World R4BIA Day
It has been exactly a year.
It's been a year since we killed our brothers and sisters on August 14, 2013 in Rabaa al-Adawiya Square.
For a year, our pain has not abated, our wounds have continued to bleed.
You declared el-Sisi, who crushed his people under tanks, as President of Egypt. Then you celebrated shedding the blood of innocent people in Rabaa Square, insulting their memory. You couldn't muster the courage to reveal how many people you killed over the last year, how many you wounded, put in prison cells and sent to exile.
You are unable to find solace in this authority that you built on the blood you have shed in a year. You are playing dirty games to try to overthrow the democratically elected governments in Egypt, Libya, Algeria, Tunisia, and Gaza.
You turned a blind eye to Zionist Israeli soldiers sullying the innocent Gaza and the Palestinian lands – the mark of our honor – and killing innocent people. You looked on, laid back in your disgraced seats, laughing as our children were slaughtered and mothers screamed in grief. Not only Israel, but also the Saudi government and its puppets are responsible for the deaths of children in Gaza..
The blessings of R4BIA have been spreading rapidly around the world, and they bring with them a new spirit, fresh ideas and a novel sense of brotherhood. Conscientious human beings in more than 30 nations, who stand against all kinds of injustice and inequity, express themselves through the R4BIA sign, flag, logo and slogans. An act of mercy roves the earth in full flood, an act which is diverse in ethnicity, color, sect, and faith, but remains united around the same sign.
Lately this blessing is accompanied by a tune. People are humming along a melody that seems to travel everywhere. It is fast turning into a wave of music flourishing of its own accord – like the R4BIA movement - and growing on everyone that hears it.
The lyrics of the tune belong to the great Egyptian scholar and thinker Professor Sayyid Qutb. He was locked behind bars between 1954-65 in the most horrific jail in Egypt, Tora Prison, where Muslim Brotherhood leaders are held today.
