Politicians, bankers and militiamen

Local and international politics intertwined with tribal culture have produced a cocktail of high-level corruption, mistrust and right down animosity between those on whom the nation was counting for salvation. A nation whose people had suffered tremendous hardship at the hands of one of the world’s longest serving and most brutal dictators, Moamer Kaddafi. He ruled Libya for forty-two years with an iron fist and showed no mercy to his opponents or anyone who dared challenge his rule or speak ill of him.

Since the revolution in February 2011, which saw NATO’s unprecedented intervention, the country has descended into chaos. With different countries backing different individuals, groups and political parties that were thought to serve their interests, they set them against one another. Initially, Qatar and Turkey backed those known for their religious ideology, while Egypt and the Golf States backed groups calling for civil society. This latter group has been accused by the former of being ‘secular’. A word which in Arabic is considered synonymous with infidel. In Europe, Italy and France have backed rival factions, and of late the two countries have been more open in supporting them. More recently the situation has become more fluid and complicated, as some individuals and groups changed sides and new alliances have formed.

About this book!

The book presents a novel view on physical reality, which focuses on the fabric of space as the source of that reality. It encapsulates all major theories in physics in a single framework of logic. Those theories include general relativity, quantum theory, string theory and loop quantum gravity. It does so by introducing a hypothesis, which quantises the fabric of space and defines its quanta as massless elementary particles that give rise to matter, energy and time. The pinnacle of success of the hypothesis is its logical explanation of the structure and workings of the atom and the arrangement of subatomic particles in atoms of different chemical elements.

The UP Hypothesis

In this post, I outline a hypothesis which describes physical reality in terms of the behaviour of the fabric of space and the interaction of its constituents. It is not a theory that attempts to model a specific phenomenon or replace an existing theory. It is a hypothesis that gives physical significance to all existing theories in physics and in mathematics.
In physics, it rationalises phenomena such as matter, energy, mass, forces, electric charge, quantum field, quantum spin, etc. and defines them in independent physical terms. As such, it reveals the reason behind the apparent conflict between classical and quantum mechanics and explains in full details the working of the atom as a coherent physical system. Consequently, it introduces a conceptual relationship between mass and energy and removes all myths from quantum theory. In full agreement with all major theories, the hypothesis explains the need for the extra dimensions demanded by string theory.

النزاعات السياسية في ليبيا - ملخص

تواجه ليبيا إنقسامات سياسية حادة منذ أن رفض مايعرف بالمؤتمر الوطني العام تسليم الحكم للبرلمان الذي إنتخب أعضائه كممثلين عن الشعب في أستفتاء عام في يونيو 2014. لن أتطرق لاسباب عدم التسليم هنا لانها تحتوي على تفاصل تخرجنا عن سياق هذا الملخص.
يرى البعض أن للإنقسامات السياسية أبعاد قبلية وإقليمية، وأخرون على أنها نتاج الفساد المالي والإداري، وخاصة هذا الأخير، الذي قضى على فاعلية العديد من أجهزة الدولة، بما فيها القانونية والأمنية خلال حكم القذافي، ونتيجة لقرارت أصدرها شخصيا، أدت إلى إقصاء العديد من الكفاءات وأصحاب الخبرة في إدارة تلك الاجهزة، ليحل محلهم أخرون لا خبرة لهم في تسيير أجهزة الدولة والمؤسسات والشركات العامة والخاصة، حيث قام بنزع هذه الأخيرة من أصحابها وتسلميها للعاملين فيها لإمتلاكها وإدارتها في نظام فوضوي فرضه بالقوة عُرف بالتصعيد الشعبي.

تصنيف اطراف النزاعات القائمة في ليبيا

1.      مجموعات ذات توجهات دينية تشتمل على أعضاء من خلفيات ثقافية ومستويات تعليمية مختلفة، ويتمثل فكر هذه الجماعات في إدارة البلاد من خلال تطبيق الشريعة الإسلامة على جميع المستويات الإدارية، الأمر الذي يقلق الكثيرين ممن يخشوا سيطرتهم على الحكم من خلال لعب ورقة الدين، ليجعلوا من المناصب الرئيسة في الدولة حكر لهم بحكم أن الدولة إسلامية وعلى اساس أنهم هم حماة الدين، وبذاك يكونوا أولى بالسلطة من غيرهم، بغض النظر على خلفيتهم المهنية وخبرتهم في المجالات التي يديرون شؤنها مقارنة بأخرين ممن هم أكثر منهم مهنية إلا أنهم لا ينتموا إلى تلك الجماعات.

Forthcoming 2017: Ghada Samman’s A Farewell to Damascus

The liberated woman is not that modern doll who wears make-up and tasteless clothes...The liberated woman is a person who believes that she is as human as a man. The liberated woman does not insist on her freedom so as to abuse it.

Why does E/m = c^2 ?

Einstein’s famous equation E = mc2 encapsulates the relationship between mass and energy. However, explaining the appearance of the square of the speed of light as a constant of proportionality proved to be an insurmountable challenge for physicists. They could only point out the colossal energy contained in a small amount of mass, which is immediately obvious from the magnitude of the speed of light. But, why the speed of light? What is its significance in the relationship? And why squared?
These and many other questions in physics remain unanswered, because the source of physical reality and the effect it has on all physical phenomena have been totally discarded. Therefore, phenomena such as matter, mass, energy, electric charge, light, gravity, time, etc., treated as independent quantities that arise out of nothing!
