El Naschie writes about the revolution, kind of

El Naschie's Rosa Al-Youssef column is up for Sunday, 13 February 2011. Circus East. Original Arabic or Google's English translation. Here are his own words:


هذه أيام عصيبة لا تحتمل التلاعب بالألفاظ أو حتي العتاب بما في ذلك البكاء علي اللبن المسكوب. These are days of difficult words that can not manipulate or even reproach including crying over spilled milk. ثورة التحرير كانت متوقعة منذ أكثر من عشرين عاماً ولا توجد معذرة واحدة فيما يخص التعليم العالي الذي انخفض إلي درجة أقل من متوسط والتعليم المدرسي المأسوي والبحث العلمي الذي لا وجود فعلياً له رغم تشدق من استولي بطرق القرصنة الإعلامية علي مشروع تقنية النانو الذي طرحته منذ أكثر من اثني عشر عاماً بمؤتمرات السياحة العلمية وافتتاح من يسمون بالمسئولين السياسيين لهذه المؤتمرات التمويهية. Liberation revolution had been anticipated since more than twenty years there is no excuse and one with respect to higher education, which fell to a lesser degree than the average schooling tragic and scientific research that there is no effect, despite paying lip service from the captured through hacking information on the draft Nanotechnology, which raised more than twelve years of scientific conferences tourism and the opening of the so-called political officials of these camouflages conferences.

وعلي الرغم من احترامي بل حتي انبهاري بشباب التحرير إلا أن صورة للرسام العالمي «مارك شجال» تظهر أمام عيوني الداخلية وخيال ذكريات الصبي حين كنت أفكر جدياً أن أكون فناناً تشكيلياً وأهرب كلما سمحت الظروف من دراسة الهندسة في هنوفر بألمانيا إلي دراسة الفن والحب والحياة في باريس عاصمة النور. In spite of my respect, but so fascinated young editor but that the image of the artist's world «Marc Chagall» appear in front of my eyes the Interior and the imagination of memories of the boy when I was seriously thinking that I am fine artists and I run away whenever conditions allowed the study of Engineering in Hanover, Germany, to study art and love and life in Paris the capital of the light.

مارك شجال ولد في روسيا القيصرية وعاصر ثورة البلشفيك بكل مظاهرها السياسية والفنية وحروبها الدموية. Marc Chagall born in Czarist Russia and witnessed a revolution in all its manifestations Bolshevik political, artistic and bloody wars.

تعرفت علي أعمال «شجال» أول ما تعرفت عن طريق لوحاته المشهورة عن الحب والعاشقين في الفترة التي عاش فيها مثلي في باريس. Identified the work of «Chagall» The first thing I knew, through the famous paintings about love and lovers in the period in which he lived in gay Paris.

لوحات شجال هذه تتميز بالسذاجة الممزوجة بالرقة والألوان الشرقية الزاهية التي أقتبسها من الفلكلور الشعبي الروسي وكذلك اليهودي حيث إن مارك شجال كان يهودي الأصل ورحل فيما بعد إلي إسرائيل حيث زينت إحدي دور العبادة هناك بلوحات زجاجية مشهورة كنت أود أن أزورها ولكن بعد أن تعطي إسرائيل حق الحياة للشعب الفلسطيني الراسخ تحت نيران احتلالها. Plates Chagall This is characterized by naive mixed paper and colors eastern bright memorable of folklore and the Russian as well as Jewish as Marc Chagall was Jewish origin and deported later to Israel, where he decorated one of the places of worship, there are paintings, glass famous you would like to visit her, but after that gives Israel the right to life firm for the Palestinian people under its occupation of fire.

برع شجال في رسم عشاق يطيرون في السماء وذلك فوق كباري باريس المشهورة وهذه السلسلة من اللوحات الزيتية التي يقدر ثمن كل منها الآن بما لا يقل عن مئات الملايين من الدولارات رغم أنه باعها أساساً بحفنة من الدولارات لشراء الطعام عندما كان فناناً مغموراً لا يعبأ به أحد وقبل وصول قنبلة الشهرة والمال التي لا يعلم أي فنان حقيقي أين تصل ولا لماذا وصلت. Excelled Chagall in drawing fans fly in the sky just above the bridges of Paris famous and the series of oil paintings with an estimated price of each of them now, at least hundreds of millions of dollars even though it sold mainly a handful of dollars to buy food when he was an artist immersed not be filled by one and before the arrival of bomb fame and money that he does not know where any true artist does not link to what arrived. لوحات شجال عن عشاق باريس ليست هي اللوحات التي تجول في خيالي عندما أري ميدان التحرير هذه الأيام وإنما لوحة معينة رأيتها في أحد المتاحف وربما كانت في باريس لا أذكر.. Plates Chagall for lovers of Paris is not the paintings that in my imagination wander when I see the Tahrir Square these days, but the specific panel I've seen in a museum may have been in Paris I do not remember .. واللوحة أسماها شجال «الثورة». The painting he called Chagall «revolution».

في هذه اللوحة نري بوضوح الكتل البشرية تحمل الأعلام الحمراء المميزة للثورة الشيوعية يتوسطها الرموز السوفيتية مثل المطرقة والمنجل «أي الصناعة والزراعة» هناك أيضاً العديد من الخطباء والشعارات والحماس وقبضات اليد مرفوعة في السماء ولكن بالإضافة إلي ذلك هناك الراقصات والراقصون والبهلوانات ومروجو الدببة والقرود والحابل والنابل. In this painting clearly see clusters of human carrying red flags Special communist revolution adorned with symbols of Soviet Hammer and Sickle «any of Industry and Agriculture» There are also many speakers, logos, and the enthusiasm and fists held high in the sky, but in addition, there are dancers, dancers, acrobats and promoters bears, monkeys and Alahabl and Anabul. كنت أظن أن شجال اليهودي كان يريد مدح وتخليد الثورة الروسية بلوحته حيث إن روسيا القيصرية وعلي عكس ما قد يتصوره كثير من الناس أقول كانت روسيا القيصرية تقمع وتنكل بالشعب اليهودي في روسيا أكثر مما حدث بعد ذلك بسنين تحت حكم النازية الألمانية. I thought that he wanted the Jewish Chagall praise and commemorate the Russian Revolution Blouhth as tsarist Russia and contrary to what might imagine a lot of people say the Tsarist Russia and the suppression of torturing Jewish people in Russia more than what happened after that after two years under the rule of Nazi Germany.

الحق اللوحة تؤيد الثورة الشيوعية بشكل أو آخر ولكن في نفس الوقت ذكاء قلب الفنان العبقري مارك شجال كان يري أن هناك «سيركاً» يحيط بالثورة من الخارج وهناك «سيرك» في قلب الثورة في الداخل. Right panel supported the Communist revolution in one form or another, but at the same time, intelligent heart of the genius artist Marc Chagall see that there was «a circus» surrounding the revolution from the outside and there «Cirque» in the heart of the revolution at home. كان شجال بشكل ما يريد أن يحذر من خلط الثورة والسيرك وهو نفس الشيء الذي أخاف منه أشد الخوف الآن.. Was Chagall is what he wants to warn the mixing of the revolution and the circus which is the same thing that I fear most is fear .. أخاف أن تنطلق وحوش السيرك من أقفاصها وتختلط النمور والفيلة مع الأسود والأخطر مع الثعالب والذئاب مع خطباء الثورة. I'm afraid to start the circus monsters from their cages and mingle with the tigers, elephants, black and dangerous with wolves and foxes with preachers of the Revolution. أخاف من رجل إفريقي الأصل وهو رجل فاضل في أساسه ولكنه أضعف رجل حكم أكبر دولة علي وجه الأرض.. I am afraid of an African origin is essentially a good man, but the weakest man rule the largest country on earth .. أخاف من هذا الرجل الضعيف الذي لم يأت بأي إنجاز في الشرق الأوسط ولا في عملية السلام التي هي الآن جنازة السلام.. I am afraid of this weak man who does not do any achievement in the Middle East, and in the peace process which is now the funeral of peace .. أخاف أن يحاول هذا الرجل وأعوانه في أوروبا أن يخفي فشله الذريع بتحويل الشرق الأوسط إلي «السيرك» الأوسط.. I am afraid to try this man and his associates in Europe to hide the utter failure to convert the Middle East «Circus» East .. أرجو من الله أن أكون مخطئاً I hope to God that I'm wrong




I don't know what point he's trying to make with all this maundering about Marc Chagall. He's not praising Mubarak any more, though. And in an article that purports to be about Tahrir Square and the revolution, he continues to talk about himself, his German education, and nanotechnology, about which he continues to pretend to be an expert.

He writes "Liberation revolution had been anticipated since more than twenty years". Is he saying he saw it coming? What a laugh. He thought the regime was secure, and that's why he grovelled at Mubarak's feet.

Here's Hossam's analysis:

Here is what I understood from him:

1. The revolution was expected from more than 20 years ago mainly because education was going bad, no scientific research, and the responsible people in Egypt did not take his Nano-technology project seriously.

2. He rambles for too long about Marc Chagall just to mention a painting of his called the revolution which El Naschie thinks was supportive of the communist revolution but expressed skepticism through an outside and inside circus. This painting describes El Naschie's feeling about the Egyptian revolution.

"The Revolution" by Marc Chagall.

3. El Naschie describes his fear from turning the revolution into a circus. He is afraid from "a man who has African ancestors, a decent man, but is the weakest man who's ever ruled the strongest country on earth". He is afraid from this "weak man who did not accomplish anything in the middle east or in the peace process which is turning now into the peace funeral". He is also afraid that "this man and his European allies would hide his grave failure by turning the middle east into a middle circus".

I am not sure what can you understand from this article. I think the great man has to do a better job in these times if he would like to keep writing for Rosa Alyoussef, specially that the old managers are likely to quit very soon. I for one do not want his column to stop.

I don't want it to stop either! Haha, number one is hilarious. The revolution came because they didn't listen to El Naschie!

The weak man referred to in number three must be Mohamed ElBaradei.

  3. "The weak man referred to in number three must be Mohamed ElBaradei."

    No, I believe he is referring to US president Barack Obama. "The man who is ruling the strongest country on earth". El Baradei isn't ruling any country.

    Not only his attack on Obama isn't justified, it doesn't make any sense. Is he implying that Obama is responsible for the revolution ? Well, if that is the case then El Naschie is reciprocating what the Egyptian media was saying; namely that the protesters, all those millions, are agents of America and other foreign countries who want instability in Egypt. But of course now that the revolution has succeeded, everyone in the media has changed his mind and started singing for the revolution. El Naschie is a bit late though.

  4. I think the 'african' man referred to in (3) is more likely to be Obama.

    I predict that the days of the douche in Rosa are numbered. The editors will probably be removed soon and I find it hard to believe that the replacements will allow this charade to persist.

  5. Of course, Obama not ElBaradei, you guys are right.

    In one of his columns, El Naschie predicted that Obama was going to be the greatest US president in history, so he's changing his tune.
