Please sign petition defending a free and Secular Middle East and North Africa--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Manifesto for a Secular Middle East and North Africa
The 2009 protests in Iran followed by the Arab Spring have the potential to herald a new dawn for the people of the region and the world. The protests have clearly shown that people in the region, like people everywhere, want to live 21st century lives.
We, the undersigned, emphasise their modern and human dimension and wholeheartedly welcome this immense and historical development. We are vehemently opposed to their hijacking by Islamism or US-led militarism and support the call for a free and secular Middle East and North Africa made by citizens and particularly women in the region.
Secularism is a minimum precondition for the freedom and equality of all citizens and includes:
1. Complete separation of religion from the state.
2. Abolition of religious laws in the family, civil and criminal codes.
3. Separation of religion from the educational system.
4. Freedom of religion and atheism as private beliefs.
5. Prohibition of sex apartheid and compulsory veiling.

Hi,i consider myself lucky to have found this group, and i'm glad i did so cheers i'm kind of new to this and still on an early stage as i'd like to think but i have a simple question (which could prove not be that simple) what about the future ? how should i live here like this ? am i supposed to live under a mask of Christianity ?or is leaving this country an option ?thanks ^_^
Aug 30, 2012
Fadi.. welcome to TA first of all and nice to have you here.. well it will take sometime struggling with "the future" and "what the fuck is wrong with these ppl" questions but you will eventually reach a solution that is suitable for you.. Leaving the country is always an option..:) it does help to find like minded ppl to hangout with as we got to discover over here, so you are most welcome to join anytime dude
Sep 3, 2012
thanks Mohamed for responding :)unfortunately i live no where near Cairo, and i'm pretty sure that like-minded people are a rare species over here .i don't know what to believe anymore
what about you ? how did you choose to live with this ? other than holding meetings with other atheists and when i said leaving the country i meant (refuge based on me being an atheist) and not by normal means because otherwise i'm stuck here :(

The number of new openly atheist/agnostic people at my school is increasing at an unbelievable rate. I no longer know whats happening around me.
Have they all decided to come out at once, or are those new atheists? Or maybe I'm just paying too much attention these days.
Forgive my paranoid tone, but it's not exactly easy seeing this happening in a school dominated by e5wan and salaf :/
