During the period of what is known as the "Arab Spring", the Islamic (jihadist) movements played a prominent role in igniting the events that led to the collapse and change of many regimes in the Arab world. The rise of these movements in all their names had an active and more extremist role in the Arab political scene, which negatively affected the attempts at change that were planned by the regimes of those countries that were supposed to adopt a secular civil ideology. These well-funded organizations and movements have contributed to the assumption of power as in Egypt or in many areas controlled by these movements as in Syria, which resulted in models of political, social and cultural tyranny and arbitrariness and a general disruption of all possibilities of democratic transformation that the peoples of the region have been seeking for ages , knowing that these movements and organizations that adopted an investigative takfirist ideology were not born today, but were the product of political, social and cultural changes that occurred in the 1920s in Egypt and spread in the rest of the countries , which led to a significant decline in secular thought to the detriment of religious political thought in the Arab world, which in turn led to the spread of many Political ideas with a religious dimension have many social classes in different Arab countries. According to this view, we present a fair and apparent criticism of the fundamentalist thought of Islam as a model of an Arab thought characterized by its criticism of the theses of political Islam according to secular philosophical foundations in which the primacy and primacy of the unlimited mind was adopted. It is the self-reliant tool that does not recognize the reference of the religious heritage, which is no longer able to solve new developments and facts.
