In an exciting article, on the Saudi newspaper Okaz, Abdullah Al-Rasheed wrote:
Teach your children the virtues, and leave the slapping on Hussein .. This is how the Lebanese historian Anis bin Zakaria Al-Nassouli spoke in his exciting book, “The Umayyad State in the Levant”. He was dismissed from teaching in Baghdad, then he left for it, and King Faisal I personally intervened to solve the book crisis.
Anis Nassouli is considered one of the most prominent Arab historians, born in Beirut, born in 1902, and graduated from the American University, and has great care in the history of the Umayyad dynasty. Muawiyah Bani Abi Sufyan, who also has a book on the causes of Arab Renaissance in the nineteenth century.
Al-Nusuli went on loan from Syria to Baghdad, and worked within the Iraqi Ministry of Education, in the education sector, and there he decided to publish his book "The Umayyad State in the Levant" amid a predominantly Shiite environment, but he did not care about that and wrote on the dedication page of the book: “Whoever deserves an illiterate history Of illiterate children! And who deserves the history of Muawiyah and the newborn from the sons of Muawiyah and the newborn! So accept the children of Syria, the valiant and independent United, this little fruit.
This dedication was the spark that ignited the Shiite Baghdadi anger from the Nusuli, in addition to much of what was mentioned in the folds of the book, where the Nusuli won strongly for Muawiyah’s position in the events of sedition, explaining the exploits of illiteracy and the virtues of their state, and their general goodness over the Islamic civilization, so the successes and conquests of the Umayyad state reached the apogee And the largest Islamic expansion was not reached by any rule after the Umayyads, just as the rule of the Umayyad was distinguished by its Arab originality, and its elevation to the affairs of the Arabs and their opinion.
When Al-Nsouli presented in his book the plight of Al-Hussein, may God be pleased with him, and wrote about its facts and pains. He criticized the exaggeration of the Shiite community in crying and slapping it, as if history had stopped at this moment. Perhaps science in the future prevents them from such a habit, and they turn the course of their sorrows into an act of benevolence and benevolence, and spread virtue between their sons and daughters. ”
These and other ideas angered a class of Shiite influentials in Iraq, and the book became a sign of sectarian conflict. Then the Iraqi Minister of Education, Mr. Abdul-Mahdi Al-Montafke, issued a decision to separate Nassouli. His Syrian schoolmates objected, and they included the dismissal. After that, the students of the Central High School and the House of Teachers held demonstrations in front of the Ministry of Education against the dismissal decision. They were both Shi'a and Sunnah, and the protesting students were also fired.
Although these events took place before the emergence of political Islam, and before "Asaib al-Haq", "Hezbollah Brigades", "Al-Quds Corps", and other extremist Shiite militias existed, the story reveals the depth of the sectarian component in the composition of Iraqi society. This is what the Arab thinker Sateh Al-Husari denounced, and he was the director of public education at the time, and he criticized this uproar: “There is nothing in this matter that deserves it, and there is no sectarian matter.” Or do they want to continue to shove their heads in the name of Al-Hussein!
