A Bedouin-Arab tent......
my proud roots !!
The Arab-Loyalty formula
consist of a comparative-proportional-evaluation .
We say :
Ana wa akhy dod ibn aami
wa laken ,
ana wa ibn aami dod el khareeb !!
I will support my brother against my cousin
but I will support my cousin against any stranger.
When you are not an Arab nor any Middle-Eastern person
you should use this formula to comprehend why
a certain inconstancy is noticed among most Arab-politicians
or among Arabs in general.
Yours truly ,for example
will support any Arab-masses (people) against
any of their leader or King or president or prince or shaikh
while , I would support the same leader or dictator or clown
if and when he is opposing any foreign- political- power.
It might appear to Westerners as if this is a archaic-attitude,
but I care not , because this is a social-historical- fact
and I have not found a better formula .
What is the use of any ideology or any religion
if it does serve and protect the people ???
The only problem I shall face, is when ever my brother
would be the dictator who oppresses the people.
My brother, by the way , is a retired book-editor aged 68
and I do not think he might still become a dictator in Lebanon
(because Beirut is full of them, anyhow)
Having said all that :
I shall support the Libyan people against the Colonel
while, I shall support Qaddafi against any foreign intervention !!
