After a long withdrawal from my blog, I feel that I cannot stay away. I needed time off though. I have been writing for God knows how long, and I was thoughtless. I was really at a point in my life where I could not put all the thoughts I wanted to say in public. I wasn’t afraid though or anything. I was just dead.
You may be thinking, oh here we go again, but seriously, yes, here we go again. And this time, I won’t shut up.
Lots of crap happened and is happening in the Arab world. I can’t even believe it, but I think it was about time. I just think there is a smarter non-violent way of articulating one’s thoughts. However, how could you tell that to people that don’t know how to use their intelligence for something useful. What has the Arab world done in the past 100 years?
The world is progressing, and they are quickly going backwards. Yes, freedom! Democracy! How are they planning to get it? Kill as many people and blame the government! Use the most powerful tool known to humans, the media, and abuse it! Such a furtive maneuver! Who is going to stop them?
Yeah, there are elections coming up in the Western World. Go figure.
However, what amazes me is my parents. They are glued to the television watching news and saying, “Oh no! Syria.. poor Syrians! Blah blah!” You guys know me, I can’t stand hypocrisy, even from my own parents. I tell them, why are you bothering? No offence to any Syrians out there! But seriously, 64 years and no one gave a shit about us Palestinians. Now the media is covering Syria and Palestinians can’t even get recognized as an independent sovereign state.
My parents think I am crazy, but you know what? I don’t even talk to Arabs here, do I care about them 1000′s of miles away?
My God! I pay a lot of taxes in this good old Canada. At least it is damn cold, I get free health care, and they accepted me as a citizen. I can’t say that about any Arab country.
God help them.
