We are first of all Huma
The Arabs are remarkably awesome people. They are known for their rich culture and hospitality. In colonial times they were knows as courageous warriors, they were very innovative people, they won many battles and had a huge empire. They stood out among other civilizations at those times for being most modern and able, and as a result they still have today a very big portion of the world map for their peoples.
Unfortunately since then they let a group of selfish regimes take over their freedom, and gone into long decades of stagnation.
But now days it is their time to rise again, Arabs are taking their first steps at realizing the situation they had created for themselves, and they are taking the first steps in changing the ways their countries are being run, again, showing great amounts of courage.
Another unfortunate point that holds the majority of Arab population today back is the fact that they hold a lot of anger and frustration, which as itself keeps prosperity and success away from them.
Up until these lines it is all well known as the current situation; however there is something that is being missed by many sides in this developing situation, and that something is fact that best things for the Arabs people nowadays, the thing that has the most power to help them with the change they are seeking, the biggest present the world gave to this big nation of Arab people, is the state of Israel and their Israeli brothers.
Unfortunately many Arabs and Israelis are missing on this point.
If you put aside the fact that many Arabs hold anger and Israeli society is protecting itself against that anger, a fact that create lots of sad stories and spread anger, if you put that fact aside, who do you think is capable of delivering the Arabs with the tools to create a new prospering culture, who knows the Arabs the best, and understand their mentality and needs, who is the closest nation to those Arab states that hold the most modern technology and any sort of knowledge in the world, as well as strong character people with a big heart to share and better the condition of these poor people.
I know it is not easy to see through all the thick layers of public relations that been playing big part around the world, years of media work dedicated to the preservation of hate and anger, helping nations across the globe to pick sides in this silly story, what will the world do if we take this awesome story away, where will the world find such a reliable source of news???
As much as I hate giving up on such a great source of stories, not even mentioning all the money industries that are living on it, and the rates of unemployment this could cause.
Isn’t it time we look at the real story here.
We are first of all Human, before any religion or other divisive notion.
Human societies developing in various areas had to develop certain ways to help them survive on their land, Arab societies grew in very harsh land, people of the desert mostly, some tough nation, maybe not as lucky as other civilizations that had easier time developing, with less competition on food sources etc, maybe lucky in other ways for they did earned their toughness.
Overall the rainbow has lots of colors; every society has its place. But in these days, communication brings the world together, some of the ways we human needed to be in order to survive, can’t hold true to the new millennia, its time for the Arabs to come out of the stagnation, don’t let your ‘haters’ hold you back, time to excel again and show the world that the ability and potential you once had are still with us.
These are new times, no longer times of colonialism and witch hunts. These are times of modern technologies and human rights.
These are times when we only keep on the table what’s relevant; bullshit doesn’t sell so well anymore.
Time to put away the angry stories, the silly religious stories. Time to see where the various cultures stands today in relation to progress and evolution, joining hands and doing what it takes to fix damages once created.
We, the progressed nations, have the tools to help other nations to step up their game, and we are doing it little by little to everyone’s advantage.
So when is the wall breaking? Who will seize the opportunity?
