ولم يتبق لي سوي معركتي العلمية مع الغرب التي لم تنته
بعد لصالحي بالشكل المطلوب
I'm left only with my unfinished scientific battle with the West, which hasn't yet ended for me as it must.
This is an allusion to his law suit against Nature, unjust lack of a Nobel prize, etc.
Meanwhile, El Naschie's Rosa Al-Youssef column is up. Sunday August 15. Back Mind. Arabic or English.
Huge amounts of name dropping in this column. Francis Fukuyama and his book The End of History. His friends Mohsen Badawi and Egyptian poet Jamal Bakhit. He refers to something called "the recent Assembly of the age of science" which El Naschie says he participated in with Dr. Ahmed Zewail. He quotes René Descartes, "I think, therefore I am". He mentions Goethe's Faust.
The ruling National Democratic Party (NDP) of the moribund President Hosni Mubarak has the slogan "Science is the solution" and El Naschie heartily approves. Egypt should promote science and engineering he says, and doing so is the real basis of democracy and human rights.
El Naschie concludes with a promise of examples, tomorrow, to show what he means. He knows examples have great explanatory value because of his "work as an engineer and a university professor".
