Egyptians! Algerians! Wake UP!

Date posted: November 14, 2009


From ferocious marketing campaigns to Facebook wars, hacking, and owl burning, the November 14th match between Egypt and Algeria has turned into an ugly war. Egyptian-Algerian actor Ahmed Mekky dedicates this wake-up call to the hypnotized mob:

 

In hats off for Mekki,

After hearing provoking and insulting rap from both Egypt and Algeria attacking each other , Ahmed Mekki ; Egyptian-Algerian Actor/director/rapper released this song which I believe should have been released earlier as it could help a lot in making both sides wake up from this stupidity.

Nawara Negm is falling in love with Mekki:

احمد مكي عمل الاغنية دي: اول جريمة في الكون كانت بين اتنين اخوات؟
انا ح احبه بقى، مين اللي كاتب الكلام؟ ده واحد بيفهم
ح تفرق معاكوا كتير لو قلت لكوا اننا والجزائريين متطابقين في الدي ان ايه؟
في حاجة واحدة، اننا نثبت ان الهبل وراثة، وده يبقى سبق علمي نقدر نتقدم بيه للجامعات العالمية ونقول حققنا فتح علمي
Ahmed Mekki wrote this song? The first crime committed on earth was between two brothers? I am falling in love with him! He who writes such lyrics is someone with good brains. Would it make much of a difference if I told you that we (Egyptians) and Algerians share the same DNA? Yes! It only proves one thing; idiocy is genetic!

The lyrics:

أول جريمة فى الكون كانت بين اتنين اخوات
قابيل هايبل يا ريتنا بنتعلم من كل اللى فات
تاريخنا عاد نفسه مليون مرة و ما بنتعلمش
و بنسال نفسنا دايما طب ليه ما بنتقدمش؟
قالها راجل حكيم زمان
فى الاتحاد قوة و فى الفرقة ضعف
ياريتك تفهم معنى كلمة ضعف
عارف الغرب اتحول عالم اول ليه؟
مشيوا بالظبط عاللى فى يوم جدودك قالوا عليه
الغرب اتعلم مننا فكرة الاتحاد
و ترجم كل كتبنا للغاتهم و استفاد
و احنا بقينا عالم تالت و كرهنا لبعض زودها
خلانا عالم مكانه ساكت
يا مصر و يا جزائر انتوا احفاد شهداء
لرفع اسم العروبة فوق فدوها بالدماء
و الله لو عملتوا نص اللى اتعمل ما بينكوا ساعة ما امريكا جت غزت العراق
ما كاتش دخلت
خير أجناد الارض و اقوى و اعظم ثوار
لو اتحدتم مع بعض صوتكم هيكون جبار
قريت جرايد برة و شوفت اليو تيوب و اتنكدت
ياااه لما الحفيد يضيع جهد الجد
صراع الاخوات بقى مانشيتات فى جرايد الغرب
كل المحطوط عاليوتيوب مش تشجيع .. دى اسمها حرب
تشجيع بلدك من حقك .. مش بس حقك دا واجبك
اهتف .. قوم ارفع علمك
شجع اخوك من قلبك و اوعى تخلى الانانية و العصبية تشوه وطنك
الوطن العربى .. ما هو وطنى و وطنك
فيكو نفس الأديان .. فيكوا نفس الألوان
نفس القارة .. نفس الوطن .. انتوا الاتنين اخوات
فوقوا
The first crime on earth was between two brothers;
Cain and Abel!
How I wished we would learn from the past!
Our history has been repeated over and over a million times once and again
but we never learn!
We still wonder why we never progress though we never learn.
A wise man of all times said it:
The sum of the parts is bigger than the whole.
I wish you would really understand
the meaning of being weak and divided!
Do you know why the west is leading the world?
Because they followed exactly what your ancestors inscribed.
They learnt our belief in unity and
translated all our books into their tongues and progressed.
And here we are third world countries
and our mutual hostility made it even worse.
We have become the countries that stood still.
Yo! Egyptians and Algerians!
You are the grandsons of honorable martyrs;
who died in the name of Arab unity.
Had you done half what you are doing now
when the USA invaded Iraq, they couldn't have!
You are the best soldiers and the greatest revolutionists,
if you join forces your voice would be deafening!
I read foreign newspapers and watched YouTube videos;
I was mortified.
Alas! When the grandson puts the grandfather to shame!
The brother's war has made headlines in western media;
everything posted on YouTube is a war in the name of cheering.
Cheering for your country is not only your right; it's your duty!
Cheer! Raise her flag!
But do not let selfishness and intolerance deform the Arab world.
Yes! The Arab world is your home and mine!
We share the same roots, the same colors,
the same religions, the same continent,
the same home, yes! we are brothers!
Wake Up!
