Hope? Where have you gone?

You know that moment that when you have so much to say but no words to describe them...

Im speechless...

Do I blame the government? That only governs how much money we're worth today?

Or do I blame the people? Who put a price tag to be displayed?

Or do I forget the blame, the pain and all the anger that my body can no longer contain?

And yet, after digging those words from deep within, I feel helpless and remain speechless...and somewhat hopeless...

ان لله و ان اليه راجعون

من امثالنا الشعبية...

قليل الأصل ما تنفع معاه المليحة ،، لو كان اتديرله في قلب السماء درجيحة...

(3) From my Archive...

Why share all the graphic images of Gaza's casualties?

Do we need to see a picture of an injured baby boy sitting next to his mom's body that he's waiting to wake up to feel their misery?

Or do we need to see a picture of blood and the shattered pieces of what was once a body to cry and sympathize with the daily massacre Gaza is going through?

Do we need to see this kind of proof of murder in order to invoke a reaction in us?

Has it come to this? We have to see images of dead mutilated bodies captioned with heart breaking comments so we feel sorry for them and blackmail our emotions to get off our behinds and supposedly do something? Not because it is the right thing to do but because we are guilt ridden?

Gaza does not need our fake sympathy, Gaza does not need us to share their bloody pictures of their struggle.

Nothing will stop Israel if the big guns do not intervene. Nothing except Allah SWT.

If our sympathy can get countries liberated, Syria would've been raising its independence flag by now.

Let it out, write articles, share photos, raise money, go on demonstrations, but don't fool yourself and think those actions will ever make the decision makers budge until they decide to do so.

Libyans: the experts on EVERYTHING!

Why does everyone talk about the Isolation Law as though 99% of the Libyan population are political experts?

Last time I checked the only glimpse of politics that was dictated to us was in the form of Wa3i Siyasi aka The Green Book aka Politics thru the Eyes of Gaddafi.

Fa ya tara ya fat7al inta o hiya, min ween il political analysis skills hadi kulha jit?

I understand that we have a lot of educated, well-read individuals who can be considered a minority in Libya. But that also does not mean that said individuals have any expertise in politics nor is it the right time to dabble in it and explore ur hidden talents or practice ur hobbies.

So to sum my humble opinion up very simply, i'll share one of my favourite quotes:
"اعطي خبرك للخباز لو أكل نصه".
