One of the reasons I decided to re-open the blog is because I was frustrated from being silent when all sorts of bad things are happening around us. We have a saying in Arabic that says "if you see evil and you don't speak up, then you're like a silent devil". Preferring to be a vocal devil, I present you with the following. I hope to adopt a short-and-sweet style rather than the old ways which involved more text than meaning.
1- EGYPTIAN STABBING AND GERMAN RACISM
You must have heard of the stabbing of Marwa Sherbini. The BBC has it, and the Swedes are even talking about it:
How come our Arab media and blogs have been so silent about it? Maybe there is something I don't know. Anyway, this is wrong. Germans are a great people and we have a lot to learn from them, but they also happen to contain some racists. I've experienced this first hand when we were there a few years ago.
2- KILLING OF PRESIDENTS
This blog is going to be a problem for Zionists, but maybe not today. Today Mahmood Abbas is my problem. There are reports of him working with the damned Zionists to poison the great President Arafat. Gulf News has a good piece on it here:
Fatah shut down Al-Jazeerah's offices for 4 days because of this. Something really smelly is going on. I demand we investigate.
For all of Arafat's ills and mistakes (Siding with Saddam, Ruling Lebanon, not condoning terrorism in his youth, etc) he was a great man and a superb leader because he put Palestine firmly on the world map. No one has been able to fill his shoes yet. Allah yer7amak Abu Ammar. RIP.
