Why the January 25 revolution failed


The January revolution was one of the noblest and greatest revolutions in Egyptian history, during the first month of its appearance, then quickly failed and did not achieve its desired aims “Life, freedom, and human dignity”. After its remarkable success in the early days, the January 25 revolution met with serious failure. So why did this happen? The question requires a lot of detail, but there were many reasons noting for example:

1- No leadership for the revolution and that could be justified at its beginning; however it is not occur after its success and its stability. When it succeeded, dozens of leaders and currents wanted to recolte the prizes and conducted secret conflicts between them.

2- The absence of a project, because a revolution without leadership or a project would undoubtedly fail. So the revolution just had the slogan “The people want to overthrow the regime”. When the regime failed, they did not know what to do next, and it was only the chaos that devastated the country and the people.

3- The inability to move from the stage of revolution to the stage of the State, and from the thought of the revolution to the thought of the State easily and without losses.

4- Pass the political fights of the world of the rational and wise political elite who accept the solutions of the people and the millions of opponents whose preachers tend to touch the emotions and stir the souls and push them for conflicts and the fights, therefore the sages did not take place until all Egypt was lost by this enthusiastic speech.

5- The wish to abandon the past, as if the history of Egypt began since the revolution of January 25 … as if no good had happened in Egypt before that, and as if no loyal citizen were born in Egypt before January 25, and this also happened after July 23, 1952 and 6/30/2013. Everyone thinks that the history of Egypt start with this revolution.

6- Everyone thought that he could rule Egypt without any qualification. This was clear in the types of candidates for the first presidential elections.

7 – Everyone’s intention to control Egypt, with the exclusion of others, so these people suffered from severe intestinal obstruction that caused their death and loss of everything.

8 – After the revolution, the political forces resorted to abroad more than their recourse to their citizens, and their political decision was inspired by their acceptance.

9- One of the most negative aspects that happened after the revolution was the massive entry of illegal political money into the Egyptian political game for the first time since the revolution of July 23…and the worst was not to spend this money for the interests of the citizen who is not politicized, ideologies or affiliated with any group.

10- What was most negative to the January 25 revolution was the permission to enter Egyptian politics for everyone in countries. Even countries that did not intend to intervene in Egyptian affairs in Egypt’s weaker cases, such as the case after June 5, 1967, they did intervene and had exclusive agents in Egypt and all Egyptian political forces have regional and international support without doubt or shame.

11- Advance the harvest…who brings something forward before its time would be punished by depriving it. Everyone wanted to harvest the prizes of Egypt’s power without delay, with slowing down or even good preparation.

12 – The transformation of the Egyptian revolution from peaceful to Molotovanism and cremation…and the permission of this aspect without prohibition…by setting fire to sections and the headquarters of the National Party…and after four years, there were more burned in Egypt noting mosques, churches, headquarters and sections of the Brotherhood, Police, prosecution, courts, provinces and thousands of cars.

13- The start of the culture of treachery just after the revolution …and that for any opinion or political position taken by its owner…and the propagation of the culture of ruin, with the generalization of judgments and punishments, even if the Quran says about its opponents “they are not the same”.

14- The failure of revolutionaries to transform revolution into a state, and the intention of some to destroy institutions without having a vision to build and reform them.

15- The diffusion of the culture of revenge after a period of the success of the revolution and the absence of the meanings of forgiveness in many speeches, whether in the demonstrations of the millions or in Rabia-El-Adaouïa or other, and the incitement to the culture of hate of the other and the disruption of the meanings of love just after a few months of the revolution’s success in expelling former President Hosni Moubarak.

16- The belief of some revolutionaries that Egyptian society should give revolutionaries the full right to be able to rule Egypt; because they believe that the revolutionary is the first people to rule.

17 – After the revolution, Egypt remained between the revolutionaries and the security institutions, then between the brotherhood and the political forces…Then between the brotherhood and the institutions of the old state…Each group believed that it was the more worthy and the best leadership…and wanted to lead all of Egypt to his faction.

18- The failure of all the stages of transition from the beginning of the revolution until today.

19- The direction of the State by the brotherhood with the mentality and the ideology of the group and they did not differentiate between the science of the call and the science of the State, and completely submitted its decision to the office’s orientation.

20- No attention to the development of the Takfiris groups and their armament in the Sinai, and everyone’s concern for the political fight over the coming dangers.
