Other things he actually says in the interview
“When the Egyptians cried: ‘The people want to change the regime,’ they did not mean the specific regime, but the system as a whole – to change the system of values ruling Egyptian society, transforming it into a society that rewards capabilities, from a traditional to a modern society, from what happened on February 2 – the so-called ‘Battle of the Camel,’ when [Mubarak supporters] stormed Tahrir Square on camels and donkeys, and a battle ensued between the camel and Facebook…
“The Egyptian must choose which path they want to take – whether to take the path of the camel, and return to the world of the camels, or whether to embark on the train of global modernism, and to become part of the world of Facebook. This is not a symbolic thing. It was the reality in Tahrir Square – a confrontation between the Facebook youth, and people who ride camels and try to establish a bullying state once again.
“If you take a look at the political map in Egypt today, you will see that many of those camel riders try to present themselves as having access to the Internet, and as being Facebook users. The Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamists, and the Salafis belong to the world of camels. I have no doubt whatsoever about this.”
Interviewer: “You are convinced of this?”
Mamoun Fandy: “Let me tell you something. Some things are indisputable. When you enter the modern Western world as an immigrant, you must ask yourself whether you will practice polygamy. If the answer is ‘yes,’ you cannot be an immigrant in this modern world. In my view, anyone who practices polygamy – I’m not talking about polygamy as a notion, but about those who actually practice it… As a notion, polygamy had its proper time, place, and circumstances. But anybody who practices polygamy in the 21st century cannot be considered democratic, under any guise. […]
“Anyone who believes in a religious state and in the existence of a ‘super-Muslim,’ or in other words, believes that his Islam is better than your Islam, and that therefore, he alone has the fax number of God, and God asks him to approve whether you are a good Muslim or not… Such a person feels that he is superior to others.” [..]
