Stockholm syndrome, Egypt 25-1-2011

February 4, 2011

I was extremely surprised with some of my friends putting Mubarak picture as a facebook profile picture… That’s really surprising!!!

Don’t they have a stable point of view?!! Or the Speech was that trustworthy?!!!

Although I do recommend that the people in the Tahrir square leave right now and the president stays until September BUT that does Not mean that he is a good leader nor that he is not condemned  of corruption, Nor even that he wanted to make a peaceful handover…

Only in Egypt the president stays for 30 years in power and yet we call him Father. People, he’s an employee as any other employee, he should stay for a limited period of time, and if he don’t fulfill our requiremnts he should resign or get fired. Mubarak is typical as someone said “The dictator is sacrificing the people and country for his own dignity.”

It seems that the Egyptians are experiencing a development of Stockholm syndrome.

Kindly READ the Definition below

In psychology, Stockholm syndrome is a term used to describe a paradoxical psychological phenomenon wherein hostages express adulation and have positive feelings towards their captors that appear irrational in light of the danger or risk endured by the victims, essentially mistaking a lack of abuse from their captors as an act of kindness.

The syndrome is named after the robbery of Kreditbanken at Norrmalmstorg in Stockholm, in which the bank robbers held bank employees hostage from August 23 to August 28, 1973. In this case, the victims became emotionally attached to their captors, and even defended them after they were freed from their six-day ordeal.

متلازمة ستوكهولم هو مصطلح يطلق على الحالة النفسية التي تصيب الفرد عندما يتعاطف أو يتعاون مع عدوه أو من أساء إليه بشكل من الأشكال، أو يظهر بعض علامات الولاء له مثل أن يتعاطف المخطوف مع المُختَطِف .

أطلق على هذه الحالة اسم “متلازمة ستوكهولم” نسبة إلى حادثة حدثت في ستوكهولم في السويد حيث سطا مجموعة من اللصوص على بنك كريديتبانكين Kreditbanken هناك في عام 1973، و اتخذوا بعضاً من موظفي البنك رهائن لمدة ستة أيام، خلال تلك الفترة بدأ الرهائن يرتبطون عاطفياً مع الجناة، و قاموا بالدفاع عنهم بعد إطلاق سراحهم
