1 6 9 12 2 4 5 7 8 10 11 The Egyptian Revolution vs. Animal Farm The Revolutions' Heart 3 The characters of Animal Farm and their similar Ones of the Egyptian Revolution . Despite some similarities among the characters of Animal Farm and those characters of the Egyptian revolution , they are entirely different . The outcome of the Egyptian revolution is also different . This great revolution resulted in the resignation of the ex – president Hosni Mubarak and the ouster of his corrupt apparatus after they were thought to survive and the establishment would gradually regain control. Jones – the original owner of Manor Farm- stands for Mubarak . Like George III to the American colonists or Czar Nicholas II to the Russian revolutionaries , Jones is the embodiment of the tyranny against which the animals rebel .
Mubarak cares little for his country and people ,exactly like Jones who cares little for his farm and the animals who live there . Old Major – a wise and persuasive pig stands for Khalid Sa'id and Weal Ghonaim . Old Major inspires the rebellion with his rhetorical skill and ability to get the other animals to share his indignation .When he announces that he wishes to share the contents of his strange dream with his companions , all the animals comply . Similarly ,Khalid said in his morgue photo is the face that launched a revolution . Outrage over the beating death of the 28- year – old man in Alexandria last summer , and attempts by local authorities to cover it up .He helped spark the mass protests demanding the ouster of Mubarak . Napoleon , Snowball and Squealer stand for the youth of the 25th of January , the real leaders of the Egyptian Revolution . The Words of old Major inspired Napoleon and his men not to fight against tyranny , but to seize the opportunity to establish himself as a dictator . On the contrary , the government corruption , lack of jobs , oppression and brutality of police forces made those young people begin their revolution demanding justice , equality and freedom . Boxer , Clover and Benjamin stand for the oppressed people . These animals give Orwell a chance to sketch how situations of oppression arise not only from the motives and tactics of the oppressors but also from the naiveté of the oppressed. Egyptian people were oppressed for thirty years under Mubarak’s rule not because of their weakness but because they were engaged in earning their living . They always had no time to rebel until they cannot bear any more . Mollie stands for some artists . She is a shallow materialist who cares nothing for the struggles of her fellow animals . Her only concerns about the revolution are ones prompted by her ego : when she asks Snowball if they will still have sugar and ribbons after the rebellion , she betrays the thoughts of old Major and reveals her vanity . Like some Egyptian artists who took Mubarak’s part and others who avoided even expressing their opinions lest they may lose some personal interests . Moses – the raven stands for press and religious people in the Egyptian society . Moses offers the animals descriptions of a place –sugar candy Mountain – where they can live free from oppression and hunger . Egyptian press and religious figures were always trying to calm down people promising them of rest after a weary , toilsome life. Frederick and Pilkington stand for the false allies of Mubarak . Despite their offers of sympathy to Jones about the rebellion at his farm , they inwardly hope that they can some -how turn Jones’ misfortune to their own advantage exactly as some presidents and kings . Jessie , Bluebell and Pincher – three dogs whose pups become Napoleon’s guard dogs stand for the police forces of the Egyptian government which protect the former regime . With the glory of Arabi Zaglol and Abdulnaser's Revolution... With the Aali's dam The war of Transit (Alabour) and the death of Abdulnassir in Egypt the sweetness of its Nile the Darkness of its land and the poverty of its millions. They swore with Gaza's tenderness Rafah's blockade and Seena's martyrs that whoever pushed the people of Egypt to beg other nations, reducing its importance from being a great country to nothing but a dead end will never remain on its soil. Hussny's system has fallen after a Revolution that lasted for 18 days he left Egypt with his vice president Omar Sulaiman. Egypt folded 30 years selling its status to the United Nations for a few Pounds . The last Pharaoh has fallen upon the hands of his people, after humiliating his country for a long time and he put off a fire that was flaming in his veins by separating Egypt away from Arabian environment He allowed" Abu Algaith" to play with the diplomatic circumstances as if it was a Poker game, a rotten diplomatic game and his Minister of Information to hold on and control the media. The President steeped down without saying goodbye to his people The people determined to bring the president down bringing with him an age that is marked as a follower to the United States and Israel Which stole the Egyptians Gas, seized the warmth of their children and pushed the champions of October to lower their heads down His people shouted their words in this Black history, and the 18th day was a blessed day for the Egyptians The millions of fraud votes were disappeared and replaced by millions of real Egyptian votes. Washington has moved on the new path and welcomed this new era, where is a banded it's allied and remained silent during the revolution to speak The blood of Khaled Saeed has finally won, the blood of Arabism went back into the Egyptian veins "Nations might fall, when the people start to judge and govern….." "our lives are miserable, laborious, and short. We are born, we are given
just so much food as will keep the breath in our bodies, and those of us
who are capable of it are forced to work to the last atom of our strength;
and the very instant that our usefulness has come to an end we are
slaughtered with hideous cruelty. No animal in England knows the meaning
of happiness or leisure after he is a year old. No animal in England is
free. The life of an animal is misery and slavery: that is the plain truth" (Animal Farm)
" Because nearly the whole of the produce of our labour is stolen
from us by human beings. " (Animal Farm) " It was a dream of the earth as it will be when
Man has vanished." (Animal Farm) He stepped down without thanking his people for the millions that he gained from their labor. " Snowball and Napoleon butted the
door open with their shoulders and the animals entered in single file,
walking with the utmost care for fear of disturbing anything. They tiptoed
from room to room, afraid to speak above a whisper and gazing with a kind
of awe at the unbelievable luxury, at the beds with their feather
mattresses, the looking-glasses, the horsehair sofa, the Brussels carpet,
the lithograph of Queen Victoria over the drawing-room mantelpiece. They
were lust coming down the stairs when Mollie was discovered to be missing.
Going back, the others found that she had remained behind in the best
bedroom. She had taken a piece of blue ribbon from Mrs. Jones's
dressing-table, and was holding it against her shoulder and admiring
herself in the glass in a very foolish manner. The others reproached her
sharply, and they went outside. Some hams hanging in the kitchen were
taken out for burial, and the barrel of beer in the scullery was stove in
with a kick from Boxer's hoof, otherwise nothing in the house was touched.
A unanimous resolution was passed on the spot that the farmhouse should be
preserved as a museum.." (Animal Farm) " "Four legs good, two legs better! Four legs good, two legs better!" (Animal Farm) Before almost 65 years, a novella was published to predict what is happening in the Arabian region right now. The masses in that region said their final word which mirrors the events in the novella; however, Animal Farm had presented pessimistic consequences that were not pleasant as the glory of the revolution. The question which is not answered yet, is the unfortunate events that happened in the novel after the pigs took the lead would be copied in Egypt? In this research, the points will be presented are: the similarities between Animal Farm's events and its characters with the Egyptian's events and leading characters.
To remain the final words In conclusion, the writer of such a novella tried to illustrate what may happen after suppression, and the glory of revolutions is not necessary followed by pleasant events. In the previous research, the similarity between the Egyptian revolution and the novel Animal Farm, the historical background and a deep analysis of both the novel and the Egyptian revolution's characters were presented. The research ended up with the same question that only future can answer, is what happened in the novella would happen in Egypt as well?
