This was triggered by a Suadi reply to an Egyptian article, which was followed by a Sudanese comment, to be found as the 1st comment..
However, this is issue is far byond the Egyptian Sudanese relations; and corsses to the furturistic Arabian states and mind-set..
I did not read or know about that Mahmoud Zakaryia, yet will never be surprised for what he would say.. Despite how Egypt and Sudan are geographically close, they are culturally apart and sometimes in hostile state.. The same applies to most relations between Egypt and Arabs.. Unfortunately, many in Egypt don’t realize it, and many more don’t acknowledge the problem..!! Yes, Egypt is and inevitably will always be the center of Arabic Strategic Focus; which should drive its attitude for more integration rather than more priggism..
It is a pity; yet I only blame the Egyptians, with their mighty mass media, strategic interests in Sudan and legions of educated and (supposedly knowledgeable) well versed ones..
On contrary, Khalid Alsuliman and many other Arabic writers, as well as the ordinary people; almost escape no chance; but to praise both sincere efforts and brotherhood; our (lazy, barbaric and humble) Sudanese had offered to build urbanism, knowledge and pride..
It is not the economic or political stresses that suffocates the Arabian Realization; but the false pride and self-destructive solutions they provide themselves..
Ironically, the more celebrated and noisy Arabs are, the more vulnerable they become..
