“If you want to free a society, just give them internet access. Because people, the young guys, you know, are all going to go out and see biased media, see the truth about other nations and their own nation and they’re going to be able to contribute and collaborate together.”
“We need a symbol of optimism, even though in his destruction of his own life he woke up a nation, which then woke up another nation, which then woke up another nation.”

Tarak Ben Ammar, re: a movie he is going to direct about the life of Mohamed Bouazizi (Tunisia’s revolutionary hero inspires movie - CNN)

Mohamed Bouazizi. And Khaled Said (for Egypt). And collective reactions. (The view that Egypt’s activists prepared for the Jan25 Revolution over 10 years. Though, I’m still sort of looking for real backing of this view. It was more like - there was partial preparation …?)

Collective. Symbolic. 

But what happened in Tunisia nor Egypt was neither ‘Islamic’ - not really exactly ‘martyrdom’ thing - but then later on this ‘idea’ or status came to be - accepted - or used. 

But then - is “martyr” - Arabic or even pre-Islamic concept? (had some foundation?) or - purely Islamic invention and Islamic concept?
