Modern Arabic Thought and The Issue of Human Rights (in Arabic)

Auther : Ahmad Al-Baghdadi

The subject of this paper is the issue of Human Rights in modern Arabic thought since the time of the Renaissance until the present.

The core of the subject is to show that Arabic thinking on issues of Human Right, unfortunately, does not own its special concept as an international issue. Arabs have borrowed their ideas from the French Revolution and the International Declaration of Human Rights which was approved by United Nations on the 10th of Dec., 1948.

Since Arab intellectuals have little experience in the field of Human Rights, they have but to adopt the «Rights» included in the International Declaration. They should play a major role in their societies for the popular acceptance of Human Rights. They must convince their people that they have no future without these Rights, and they should not depend on their governments, because of the bad history of their governments in this field. The fact that Arab governments have a long and bad record in oppression and tyranny, and, therefore, they are not qualified to take responsibility in this case.

Needless to say that the issue of Human Rights is a very serious matter. Any hesitation to implement Human Rights will keep the Arab countries behind the rest of the civilized world.
