الترابي في الثمانين

[حسن الترابي. الصورة من وكبيديا]

من أكتوبر إلى يونيو: إفلاس الرؤية وبؤس السيرة [1] أكمل الدكتور حسن الترابي، الزعيم الإسلامي، عامه الثمانين هذا العام. وإن قلنا إن شخصاً ما في أي مكان في عالمنا اليوم قد أكمل عامه الكذا فإن مثل هذه الجملة لا تثير في الغالب مشكلة، إلا أنها ربما تثير مشكلة في حالة الترابي. فالترابي عندما سئل مرة عن تاريخ ميلاده وهو ماثل أمام محكمة فإنه أعطى تاريخ ميلاده بالهجري. ولاشك أن الترابي، وهو رجل القانون من ناحية ورجل الحركة الإسلامية من ناحية، قد فكّر في الأمر قبل إعطاء إجابته. لا شك أنه رأى أن صياغة إجابته بتلك الصيغة ينسجم أكثر مع مشروعه الإسلامي الذي يهدف في نهاية الأمر لإخضاع حياة الناس بكل تفاصيلها لأحكام الإسلام وتعاليمه وتقاليده ورموزه وصبغ كل مظاهر سلوكهم به. وهكذا وعندما ...

New Texts Out Now: Jens Hanssen, Kafka and Arabs

[Cover of

Jens Hanssen, “Kafka and Arabs.” Critical Inquiry (Autumn 2012).            Jadaliyya (J): What made you write this article? Jens Hanssen (JH): I have been carrying a dog-eared photocopy of Kafka’s three-page animal story “Schakale und Araber” in my luggage ever since a friend of mine at the German Institute in Beirut handed it to me to read. This was back in 1998, and I remember that when I read it I knew I would return to it one day. I think for anyone concerned about the tragedy of Palestine, Kafka’s story resonates. It is certainly not straightforward and at the time I did not fully know what it meant or ...

الحدود والرؤوس المومئة: مرحلة ما بعد الاستعمار والذكرى الخمسون لاستقلال الجزائر

[ AP Photo/Sidali Djarboub ]

قد يقول البعض إن الجزائر تعد بامتياز نموذجاً لمرحلة ما بعد الاستعمار. لقد أعطت حرب الاستقلال طويلة الأمد والتي أصبحت نموذجاً لصراع العالم الثالث، والحزب الوطني الذي كان فرانتز فانون متحدثه الرسمي، دفعة لكلمة algérianité (الوطنية الجزائرية)، والتي كانت كلمة طنانة في كل البحوث التي تناولت مرحلة ما بعد الاستعمار. إضافة لهذا، فإن جبهة التحرير الوطني، والتي أعلنت نفسها الحزب الوحيد حتى 1989، لم تفز بالحرب ضد الفرنسيين فقط (وضد خصوم جزائريين) أثناء الثورة وحسب، ولكنها بقيت في السلطة بعد انتخابات مايو 2012 التشريعية. إنه من المؤكد أن الجو السياسي الحالي لا يزال مرتبطاً بشكل كبير بحرب الاستقلال. في الاسبوع الذي سبق الانتخابات، وقف الرئيس بو تفليقة في سطيف (حيث قام الاستعمار ...

The Scared Islamists And Their Frightened Majority

To those unfamiliar with the “civil”/religious debate in Egypt, the term “civil” was recently dubbed to mark an assembly of disparate, sometimes conflicting, ideologies and positions that stand for the creation of what has come to be known as a “civil state.” This “civil state” is in turn commonly imagined as something that stands against a theocratic (Islamic) state, but not necessarily against political Islam per se — for there are several Islamic versions of the “civil.” The term “civil” forced itself ...

From Gebran Bassil To Con Edison: Ten Lessons New Yorkers Can Learn From Beirutis About The Dark

South of Thirty-fourth Street on the East and West sides, most stores were closed, and those that were open quickly ran out of supplies.
