It Is Now or Never:
Voice Your Support for Democracy in Egypt

Syed Husain Pasha

Stand Up and Be Counted

For anyone that is familiar with what is going on in the world, it is now or never.

That is why, regardless of who or where you are, you must answer this question: Are you a lover of democracy and freedom or are you a friend of tyranny, dictatorship and corruption?

For, if your soul has to any degree been touched by the love of freedom and democracy, here is your chance to prove it. Stand up and voice your support for the People of Egypt in their historic fight for freedom and democracy.

Voice your support for Dr. Muhammad Morsi for President of Egypt.

Send us an e-mail adding your name to this on-line statement of support for Dr. Morsi for President of Egypt and we will display it on

You may have missed out on the great American and French revolutions. The great American-French Revolutionary Thomas Paine was the only human being in history who was fortunate to have played a key role in both.

You may not have been around when, in 1947, Gandhi’s nonviolent revolution sent the British Empire packing from India.

But by signing this online petition, you will have placed your name on the record of indelible human history as a supporter of the great Egyptian Revolution, whose sheer peacefulness stunned the world in January 25, 2011.

Times that Try Men’s Souls

“These are the times that try men’s souls,” declared that great American patriot and democrat, Paine.

And we the undersigned, global human patriots and democrats all of us, echo the sentiments expressed by Paine and say: What Egypt has endured for the past 100 years in the form of one brutal tyranny and dictatorship after another will try any man’s soul anywhere.

And any woman’s soul.

And those that stand by the long-suffering Egyptian people at this hour in their historic fight for freedom and democracy, deserve, in the words of Paine, “the love and thanks of man and woman.”

“Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered,” said Paine, and how well the world knows that fact when it comes to Egypt’s monumental struggle to break the hold of 100-year tyranny on its life.

Paine then goes on to “call not upon a few, but upon all: not on this state or that state, but on every state: up and help us; lay your shoulders to the wheel.”

A Call to the Whole World to Support Morsi

Following Paine, we the undersigned call on the people of the whole world to lay their shoulders to the wheel and add their voice of support to the Great Egyptian People’s fight for freedom.

The impending presidential elections in Egypt on May 23 & 24, 2012, demand that men of goodwill everywhere stand up and be counted and let it be known whether they are on the side of democracy and freedom or on the side of tyranny and injustice.

We call on the whole world to support Dr. Morsi for President of Egypt.

Here Are Some Reasons Why

We the undersigned strongly support the candidacy of Dr. Muhammad Morsi for President of Egypt in the forthcoming presidential elections.

Even though we are not Egyptian nationals, and do not have voting rights in Egypt, we still voice our very strong support for Dr. Morsi for President of Egypt for the following reasons:

  1. We consider supporting the Egyptian People at this hour of their need to be one of the greatest and most urgent and pressing humanitarian causes of the day. It is a call that our conscience simply cannot ignore.

  2. We expect our support of the Egyptian People at this time will have a further moderating influence on this campaign and on the future attitude of the Egyptian People and Government toward our own countries and people and be an added force for peace in the Middle East.

  3. We expect our support of the campaign of Dr. Morsi at this time will result in making the new administration in Egypt more open to working with our own respective democratic governments.

  4. Dr. Morsi seems to have the best and strongest qualifications of all candidates currently running for President in Egypt.

  5. Dr. Morsi is an outstanding academic and an accomplished parliamentarian.

  6. Dr. Morsi demonstrated superior political skills by leading his party, the Justice and Freedom Party, to a parliamentary majority in the recent free and fair national elections in Egypt.

  7. Dr. Morsi is very clearly a pious and God-fearing man, who has memorized the Qur’an, along with his wife and five of his children. He is Dalai Lama, Bishop Tutu and the Pope rolled into one.

  8. Dr. Morsi stands clearly and firmly for equal rights for women as well as Coptic Christians and other religious minorities.

More Reasons Why Morsi Must Be President of Egypt

  1. Dr. Morsi is totally untainted by any allegations of personal corruption in a place where those holding or aspiring for power have been associated with all manner of corruption for decades.

  2. Dr. Morsi, astounding as this seems, did not advance his own candidacy for President, but was drafted to run for the job, thus fulfilling a Noble Hadith that in effect says that we should not hand over power to those who seek it, and instead we should support those whom the People support.

A Complete Blueprint for a New Egypt

  1. Dr. Morsi has put forward a Master Plan for the revival of Egyptian society and rebuilding of Egyptian economy and institutions that seems to be most comprehensive and innovative and prepared with careful analysis and input from thousands of experts and specialists.

  2. Dr. Morsi endured a great deal of severe persecution by the Military Dictatorship of Mubarak including several years of imprisonment and yet emerged from it all without a trace of hate or bitterness, pretty much like Mandela of South Africa did after 23 years of hard labor under the Apartheid South African regime.

  3. Dr. Morsi seems to embody the same love for his people, and same spirit of forgiveness for his enemies, that Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, demonstrated when God Almighty opened the gates of the city of Makkah for him, after he was subjected to the most cruel and inhuman persecution by the people of Makkah for over two decades.

Untainted by Corruption or Collusion

  1. Dr. Morsi’s record is completely untainted by any corruption or collusion with the brutal and barbaric military dictatorship that held the Great People of Egypt in its grip for close to 100 years.

  2. Dr. Morsi’s actions and words to date seem to position him as the best and strongest hope for freedom and democracy for the Great People of Egypt.

  3. As a man of honor and integrity, Dr. Morsi also seems to be the man the world can trust to build truly positive and peaceful relations with the nations of the rest of the world, especially the free world from Europe, America and Canada to the Caribbean, South America and India.

  4. Dr. Morsi would appear to be a strong candidate for ushering in true democracy, peace and prosperity, not just in Egypt, but also throughout the Middle East and Africa.

A True Moderate in a Time of Extremism

  1. Dr. Morsi is a true moderate and a genuine voice of reason in a world that is being torn to bits by extremism and fanaticism of one kind or another.

  2. The Great Nation of Egypt and the Great Egyptian People have suffered too long under a most heinous and a most barbaric and corrupt military dictatorship. And the time has come for the Great Egyptian Nation and for the Great Egyptian People to live and breathe free and fearless to build a great new future for themselves and for the rest of the world.

Commitment to Transparency and Accountability

  1.  In line with his repeated pronouncements of commitment to democracy, Dr. Morsi has been promising full transparency and accountability in his administration at every campaign stop when he comes to power. We are hoping our external support for his candidacy will provide an added incentive for him to adhere to those promises when elected President.

Lovers of Freedom and Democracy

  1. Even though we are not Egyptian nationals, and even though we have no voting rights in Egypt, we love Egypt and the Egyptian People, and we love democracy and freedom and peace and justice for all the peoples of the world, and not just for Egypt and its people, and we believe the least we can do at this critical juncture in the history of humanity is to place on record our love for humanity everywhere and our dedication to the cause of peace, prosperity, freedom and democracy for all by signing this online statement of support for Dr. Morsi for President of Egypt.

  2. One more thing: God forbid, if it turns out that Dr. Morsi is not all that we consider him to be – a force for freedom, democracy, moderation and peace and equal rights for all – then, at the end of four years, the Great People of Egypt can throw him out and get someone else in his place that is better. For, that, after all, is democracy. And that, what many people don’t know, also is Islam.

Charity toward All, Malice toward None

For these and many other similar reasons, all of them stemming from our indomitable love and charity toward all, and hate and malice toward none, we the undersigned very strongly voice our support for Dr. Muhammad Morsi for President of Egypt, even though we are not Egyptian nationals and have no voting rights in Egypt.

God Bless Egypt! And God Bless America!

Go Morsi, Go!
