Some comrades of the Left and the extreme Left do not hesitate when they dream of the revolution they never had the courage to do. And there they are now holding each other. For them, the new proletariat is that young man, the djeune of the slums that spends his money on Nike and Sergio Tacchini and whose only ambition is to drive a Merc. That’s what to be proletariat is...!
There they are, most of them convinced atheists, who one day decided to conquer the Muslim electorate. Long before the rebellious comrade, some observers could perceive, with doubt, the emergence of the bearded comrade. The native who had to rebel against the colonialist power and whose salvation was religion. Even when some comrades did not feel comfortable, they did not say a word. After all, it did not affect revolution too much and growth was what the group needed. Some who were born Muslims reminded the comrades that the opium of the masses was not a cup of tea. However, they were not listened to. Even worse, they were expelled.
After multiple transactions, the bearded comrade, who established himself where the revolutionary comrade allow him to, was no longer heard, he worked. On what? On the proletariat and religious revolution. Yes, I know, it’s a pretty rare notion but you will understand it very soon. Besides, you have no other choice. Wasn’t the last Huma party devoted, by chance, to this new form of revolution offering comrades a paella hallal? When will the next Huma party be, where fruit juices and Qaradawi’s speeches are common?
There are many voices rising timidly making warnings. Be careful, the rebels are not revolutionaries; they destroy for the sake of destroying. They’re a group of criminals! No? No, it’s not possible. The rebellious comrades destroy because they are aware of the fact that they belong to a native community humiliated by the colonial power. It’s simple. They don’t realize, they don’t understand you, you bunch of incorrigible bourgeois!
