Actually the enemy of the republics before the monarchies. His claim is false because it is the enemy of the idea of ​​the state. The army dedicated the struggle to the state, not to rule. Their imagination and aspirations were much less than that. “

In another tweet about clashes between the army and the Rapid Support Forces in Sudan, al-Daghil added, “What is happening in Sudan is intensifying the collaboration of the army and militias to kill the idea of ​​republic in the Arab world. And with it the idea of ​​state.”

He pointed out, “Egyptian writer Saad Eddin Ibrahim once described the military regime as Jamalukyat. An ambiguous name for republics, and the ambiguity paved the way for the militants to complete the abolition of the state, a political path that did not exist. Stop.”

The Saudi academic spoke about the late Libyan Colonel Muammar Gaddafi’s regime and his relationship with the military regime, saying in a third tweet: “Gaddafi reveals the reality of military rule, after his coup, Abdel Nasser Amin described him as Arab nationalism. He then changed the name of the republic to Jamahiriya, he Sanctifying the popular basis for his rule, he did not wait long to name himself “Emperor of Africa”. He was irresponsible in his speech and behavior. Nevertheless, he remained in power. For more than 41 years an Arab monarch would not have dreamed.”
