Nasserism (Arabic: التيار الناصري at-Tayyār an-Nāṣṣarī) is a socialist Arab nationalist political ideology based on the thinking of Gamal Abdel Nasser, one of the two principal leaders of the Egyptian Revolution of 1952, and Egypt's second President. Spanning the domestic and international spheres, it combines elements of Arab socialism, republicanism, nationalism, anti-imperialism, Developing World solidarity, and international non-alignment. In the 1950s and 1960s, Nasserism was amongst the most potent political ideologies in the Arab World. This was especially true following the Suez Crisis of 1956 (known in Egypt as the Tripartite Aggression), the political outcome of which was seen as a validation of Nasserism, and a tremendous defeat for Western imperial powers. During the Cold War, its influence was also felt in other parts of Africa, and the Developing World, particularly with regard to anti-imperialism, and non-alignment.
After seeing the rise of ISIS and fall of various Secular Dictatorships such as Mubarak, Qaddafi and Saddam Hussein I wonder if the only solution to this ISIS solution is to bring back Nasserism and other Repressive Secular Politics as the Solution to the ISIS crisis?.
