Justice In Everything

BY Adel Hafiz

We have to implement the principles of fairness and justice in all our institutions, exactly in the same vein as we demanded loudly and clearly from the old regime: "No hereditary presidency" and "No patronage"  

 

There is no doubt that the reason behind the current tension and status in some, in fact in all, institutions, authorities, and unions in Egypt, is the complete absence of any justice being achieved in these entities - injustice that was completely dominant in the "age of corruption" before the January 25th revolution.  There is no doubt that achieving justice is a difficult task that requires a certain type of consciousness and impartiality, regardless of the level of interest any party may have or the value of the ill-gotten gains that can be achieved.  Gains to be. We have to implement the principles of fairness and justice in all our institutions exactly in the same vein as we demanded loudly and clearly from the old regime: "No hereditary presidency" and "No patronage".  Otherwise, we will continue to be trapped in this downward spiral and tense and charged environment that we see around us in the sit-ins, protests, demonstrations, and marches.  

 

We have to begin immediately to seek and achieve justice in everything: in income and wage distribution, in land distribution, and in the fair allocation of jobs, positions, and employment for individuals.  In order for this to be achieved, we absolutely have to change the faces that are symbolic of the enormous corruption and patronage that took place under the old regime.  The faces that applauded and bowed to the old regime in order to unjustly seize the rights of others.  Now, after this just revolution, Egypt does not need clapping, boasting, or chants from anyone. Enough chants.  Enough boasting.  Enough empty smiles.  Those who chant, boast, and present empty smiles have to leave forever so Egypt can be left innocent of them like the innocence of the wolf from the blood of the son of Jakob.
