I’ve been receiving lately lots of e-mails, texts, and comments almost all are wondering why I am so concerned about the Arab Spring’s decay and the Foreign Powers bid for its failure?
First I’d like to express a sincere thank you for the patience, support and understanding you’ve shown towards my opinions and writings, all throughout the past years, however eccentric or contradictory they may seem sometimes. Nevertheless, I’d like to underline the principal necessity to “Know”. I ‘know’ something, ‘discover’ something, or even ‘understand’ something then it is my duty to share those with you.. So that those of us who do not know may receive a new piece of information, regardless of agreeing with it or not.
The mere act of “Knowing” would make one reason, deepen, research, debate, agree or refuse.. But in any case one will react to a given information.. Whether passively: I know full stop and it ends here; or actively by I pass on to other(s) what I’ve just found out.
Knowing that NATO is planning an eminent attack on Iran shall not deprive us from going to school, to work, or to the club or wherever we’re intended to go or do in our daily agonising pursuit to accomplish our daily exercises; however it would allow us to understand why the fuel prices are souring sky high, why the inflation along with its sisters the taxes are devouring our entries, and why our life is getting more and more harsher.
Also knowing that while the International Monetary Fund advises the European Community to ease its ‘Austerity Measures’ to favour ‘Growth’, it remains reluctant to allow any suspension of its loan granting pre-conditions (also known as “Structural Adjustments Programmes” by which austerity, privatisation, and controversially lifting any subsidisation out of the essential commodities are the Biblically essential orders to abide by or else) to any member of the Third World.. Especially the Arab countries.. See Egypt’s case.
Or knowing that back in the seventies of last century Henry Kissinger said: “..the useless eater will be euthanized” (in the course of presenting his programme on “Global Population Control” as an integral part of his view for realising the “New American Century” through what was known at the time by the “Earth Charter”) will not prevent you or me from (God willing) waking up every morning, go to the bathroom, and reach out to do or not do whatever we are usually committed to.. But it would make us more attentive while picking the food items we normally get at the super market; or investigate more accurately the origins, components and side effects of a physician prescriptions before even buying it.
Even knowing that we are already part of the dominion of the New American Empire, that the Cold War didn’t lay down its arms and never have ceased to condition our humble existence; will not induce any of us to stop loving, marrying or divorcing; instead it would allow us to make a choice or take a stand.. Any choice and whatever stand which might conform with our knowledge and could satisfy our expectations.
My concern, dear friends, is “Knowing”.. What to do with and about the knowledge one have acquired is completely his or her free choice.. Personally I have already made up my mind and decided for myself.. In such an advanced age the only mean I can bear, to defy every type of injustice and resist against any form of suppression, is through serious researching, writing, exposing, documenting and denouncing the very little I may discover about these aspects of our cruel, unjust and ignorant ‘Human’ species.
Just remember that almost 10 centuries before René Descartes launches his immortal definition for human existence by giving a 5 words statement: “Je Pense Donc Je Suis”, literally translated into “I Think Then I Am”; a 40years old illiterate Arab pastor while meditating about his existence on top of a hill out of an unknown small village amidst a vast hot desert in the Arabian Peninsula received one simple word enclosing all the knowledge of God’s creation: “IQRA”.. An imperative conjugation of a verb literally translated from Arabic as “Read”.
That was the first word in the epilogue of “The Manual For Human Existence”.. The Holy Qor’An.
Pass On The Word.
