Letter to the Ennahda Party on the 41st anniversary of its founding

On June 6, the Tunisian Ennahda Party celebrated its forty-first anniversary (this was at a press conference announcing the founding of the party on June 6, 1981) under the general name “Islamic Attitude”; In a confined space covered by Mohamed Mazali, prime minister after Hedi Nouira, who suffered a stroke after the Gafsa military operation (January 1980), which forced Bourguiba to calm the rope with his opponents for a while .. Since that day, the party’s trials have not stopped and no prison wall has remained A Tunisian does not bear the names of its members and disasters have eaten away much from the party body, but he did not die. From history also, there has been no politics within Tunisia, except in conflict with the party; It is either oppression and displacement, or amputation of wings, or use and “travel.”

Forty-one years of politics against or with Ennahda made the party the center of politics and the names of the party have faded from it until no one remembers them anymore. What can be said? What will the forty-first anniversary celebration bring? We will send simple messages to the party from the citizen’s page.

From which page do we talk to the party in these messages?

We have always talked to the party in an informal conversation, but through friends from within the party with a non-specific background. We did not hide the high moments of sympathy when we felt the eradication of the eradicating discourse in any position and we were not ashamed of our willingness to defend the party when the discourse turns in order to attack, but we criticized the party policies in many countries after the revolution, and in most of the party’s participation in government or in its parliamentary participation. This reminder is not from the party, but we chose the place of associating democracy with advice and built with other friends, especially Dr. Zuhair Ismail, a clear stance (Ennahda’s presence and participation in the political process is a must. A condition for building democracy), and from the same page we send messages.

We are not at all bothered by those basic accusations that classify as Rilindas anyone who did not hit the Rilindas with any stone that reaches them as Rilindas (or Khwangi or mercenary caught by him!). These accusations targeted the most determined secularists who are hostile to the Renaissance and to any Islamic political reference, the last of whom was Iyad bin Ashur, the legal jurist. These accusations are issued exclusively by Ibn Ali’s police operating room and we can be proud that we have not practiced extinction and have not harmed human beings in his living or honor. We know from which eye Polis Ibn Ali drinks, so we pass.

What do we see as the duty to say to the Renaissance or our messages on the anniversary of its founding?

You declared your innocence from the mind of the surviving sect and we are among you who have not accepted the speech of the surviving sect since we met at university. We did not see your sheikhs Saeed bin Jubayr in front of the pilgrims, nor your audience, the owners of the furrow in Najran. In a democracy, sincerity towards your statement becomes a moral and political necessity. What we are pursuing so far is that this statement (which you called democratic Islam) was not embodied on the ground. The site is not subject to accountability, but the publications of your supporters are still blasphemous in many countries, which suggests that innocence is a superficial message addressed to us and does not penetrate into the depths of your audience’s thinking, so have a clear conversation and determination to have informed partners.

You have always been called that the pursuit situation delays the raising of substantive issues and we have told you that this is the lamentation of the lazy victim without action and we have felt in many halls that you are in pain to escape the deep right. . We see no reason to prevent you from organizing efforts and distributing tasks between the everyday politician and the permanent intellectual, except that these ranks of leaders in the center and regions are just loose names who can not write a sentence, and we we are not in a position to test or judge their competencies. But after ten years of freedom, you should know that your non-extremist neighbors in politics and society do not accept your past nor do they know your future. Thinking that you are asking yourself more than just getting a well-paid job, we hope the arguments stop under the pretext that others do not even have a book.

In our common heritage, we found that forty years old is the age of mental maturity (which qualifies for prophecy), and we found that generations change every forty years and you are on your holiday in the stage of maturity and change, but we are the neighbors your and we have not seen the new generation. We followed the partisan division and resignations, listened to the arguments and found their logic. The battle for leadership transition is open, but its solutions have been pushed and you know the excuses or reasons.

The issue of leadership transition will seem like an internal matter, but the position you seek in the political / national partnership makes your internal struggles national issues concerning your neighbors; Not from brotherly love or purity, but from the pieces of your broken glass that hit us in the face.

We smell the aromas of your indoor kitchen and find the smell of fast food kitchens that do not reveal a long-term project (as you claim), but rather a competition for seats and luggage. This is the entry of weakness and fragility that has struck neighboring parties and organizations, and is the entry of progress.

This is the entry of weakness and fragility that has struck neighboring parties and organizations, and is the entry of penetrations (and we have seen in you many of the invaders of Uhud).

We expect or desire (and know the inherent impossibility of desire) that you stay within the bounds of impossibility of abandonment and rational replacement, and so much so that it will be a loss to you and society around you, but it liberates us more that sympathy in eradication curves that will not end in the foreseeable future. (This is the disease of a generation and the disease of a society in crisis of democratic modernization). We will not hesitate to tell you in a voice you will hear: “You are destroying your homes with your own hands.” Do not cry over anyone’s shoulder.

Another possible rebirth?

If we tell you that the existence of the Renaissance is a condition for the establishment of democracy and the establishment of a constructive political debate between projects with different and contradictory references, this does not mean that society exists for you or for you, as I think. know well that Islam exists without you, and it has been before you and will remain after you, and you are not in its history except a few believers after the end of the age of prophecy.

Therefore, we want to imagine a new renaissance, with new leaders, with a democratic discourse that does not cry out for injustice, even if it exists, and does not transcend authority, even if it is victorious, and presents people with new ideas with it. new. faces capable of advancing dialogue, debate, and conflict (your beloved clash) to a greater extent.

In this country, there are those who highly value your defense of freedoms since the revolution, and your courageous departure against the coup against freedom (the country has never been without reasonable people). We have not discussed here your mistakes in governance, some of which are catastrophic, but we have resolved the issue beforehand (miscalculations are discussed in a democratic situation, not under a vanishing media siege).

We want to imagine a new renaissance, with new leaders, with a democratic discourse that does not cry out for injustice, even if it exists, and does not surpass power even if it is victorious, and presents people with new ideas with new faces of capable of advancing dialogue, debate and conflict (your beloved clash) to a greater extent.

We appreciate, despite the misery of the moment, that the city has emerged from the battles of extinction and eradication has not been able to protect you from freedom (and we appreciate that these are the last days of intellectual and political eradication) and this is your investment, but if consider a personal tool of power, it will make you the firewood of the stage, not the cornerstone.

What will you create? You will establish permanent democracies, not with this generation of leaders, but with a new generation of your children, and inevitably in partnership with the children of the neighbors, and the good is not only among you. The ten years (we called it the decade of brilliant freedoms) were the prelude to the founding and now we feel that the country has entered the phase of passing the writing of the long democratic text. Let your holiday be a profound transformation, not a case of free cakes at the expense of the holiday, and then you will be caught again by false prophecies.

Dear friends, you are not the companions of the Messenger of God, and the Tunisians are not infidel Quraysh, but we are partners of the homeland and lovers of freedom. We accompany him on a long journey and share the road supplies. , and the clothes of your fathers are narrowed to us, and we will disregard that it is narrowed to you until we see the face of a new party, or write: There was such a thing as the Renaissance Party, and it has fallen into obsolescence ..
