ABDULATEEF AL-MULHIM








Saturday 6 October 2012









...
I decided to write this article after I saw photos and reports about a starving child in Yemen, a burned ancient Aleppo souk in Syria, the under developed Sinai in Egypt, car bombs in Iraq and the destroyed buildings in Libya. The photos and the reports were shown on the Al-Arabiya network, which is the most watched and respected news outlet in the Middle East.






The common thing among all what I saw is that the destruction and the atrocities are not done by an outside enemy. The starvation, the killings and the destruction in these Arab countries are done by the same hands that are supposed to protect and build the unity of these countries and safeguard the people of these countries. So, the question now is that who is the real enemy of the Arab world?






The Arab world wasted hundreds of billions of dollars and lost tens of thousands of innocent lives fighting Israel, which they considered is their sworn enemy, an enemy whose existence they never recognized. The Arab world has many enemies and Israel should have been at the bottom of the list. The real enemies of the Arab world are corruption, lack of good education, lack of good health care, lack of freedom, lack of respect for the human lives and finally, the Arab world had many dictators who used the Arab-Israeli conflict to suppress their own people.

Wow. An Arab is finally figuring out that Arab dictators, not Israel is the source of his misery.

One down, a half a billion to go, plus the Persians.

Careful what you post, else you get a fatwa declared on your blasphemous ass.

It's always easier to blame someone else for your problems.

Particularly in cultures with no concept of any kind of sympathy or empathy directed to the "other". The modern middle east is pretty much a study in tribalism writ large and why it doesn't work.

That dude's got a head on his shoulders.

He should come to Istanbul and publish from here.

Yep.

My hope for all of them waking up before Israel sends them all to Allah well-done is fading, however...

You know what this article reminded me of? This great piece:

Also worth a read if you are trying to understand some of the mindset in the region.
