Subject : WHY DO WE HATE EACH OTHER...EPISODE TWO

Dear Friends
Greetings again from the UK hoping that you are doing very well and up to the usual potential. In my last article I sent you one day ago tackling the reasons why Arabs hate each other I have sent an open invitation to formally announce the death of WATANI HABEEBI ELWATAN ELAKBAR and to officially forget the dream of HODN YDOMMENA KOLLENA and today I came across an example that puts my last article into real practice.

 

I have posted a comment to the people who have published the news article but I do not think it will ever get published so I reverted back to you as usual as you are the most free Arab online newspaper we ever came across.


The article is very ridiculous in context but having read the reactions of people, I came across a few that provide practical evidence hence I find my self here in the position of defence as this is the only language certain slices of the (Arab) community understand.

 

 The article published on the website of AL(ARAB)IYYA channel has been about the disengagement of Saudi businessman Tareq Al-Jaffali with glamour singer Hayfa Wehbe because of 'pressure' from his family. The comments made by some Saudis were a reflection of their prejudice and tribalist nature and certainly not showing happiness of disengagement because of Hayfa's behaviour; only because Hayfa is not Saudi.


Here are a few of these comments

تفاوت ثقافات
عامر الشيخ |05/09/2005 م، 13:14 (السعودية)، 10:14 (جرينيتش)
الموضوع محكوم عليه بالفشل سلفا وذلك مهما يكن السيد طارق منفتحا فتبقى أخلاقه السعودية الأصيلة وبيئته الطيبة ترفض هذا النوع من الزواج فأخلاق السعوديين معروفة للجميع وأكثر مايميزهم هي الغيرة الشديدة والمذكورة هيفاء حفلات وسهرات وسفر وهذا لايرضى به الا من هم بالوسط الفني 0

والله رح تشتاق

وليد علي|05/09/2005 م، 15:0 (السعودية)، 12:0 (جرينيتش)
لا أريد أن أتشمت لكن يجب كل واحد ان لا يفكر بشيء واحد ما دام أن الجفالي يريد نسل طيب ويكون عائلة محترمة سعودية إن الأخ الجفالي لم يفكر بالمستقبل القريب والبعيد. ألف مبروك للجفالي. ممكن الجفالي لم يأخذ موافقة من وزارة الداخلية السعودية

سعودي|05/09/2005 م، 16:22 (السعودية)، 13:22 (جرينيتش)
نحن بأنتظار ألأعلام والساسة اللبنانيين بتحميل سوريا عملية فسخ الخطوبة حتى لاتستفيد لبنان من العملة الصعبة القادمة في حال اتمام مشروع الزواج وهذا طبعا ناتج من الحقد السوري على لبنان فهلموا الى ميدان الحرية



Here we are just a few of the comments. A lot of shallow minded people may now think that I am writing this article in defence of Hayfa Wehbe but I am not. I do not fancy her personality or her attitude but at the same time she does not represent Lebanon or the ladies of Lebanon (I stress Ladies and not women).

 

The issue was simply the engagement of an idiot ill-minded person (his mind is located between his legs and not in his head) with a woman that we would never have heard of thanks to the  money and investments made by prince waleed ROTANA and sheikh saleh ART (ART here may be pronounced as one ARABIC word) she now is considered to represent Lebanon.

 

If you examine the comments very closely and read in between the lines you will see that in the minds of these people, Lebanese, Palestinians, Jordanians, Egyptians etc... are people who just  want their money and they view our ladies as prostitutes who just want their men for their money.


Notice how sarcastic they are of how the Lebanese have fought for their freedom and independence peacefully (yes I am proud to support our Lebanese brothers because they do not just deserve  independence rather they deserve leadership of the Middle East) .

 

I wonder if their reaction would have been the same if Hayfa Wehbe was Saudi? I also wonder if the reaction would have been the same if Al-Jaffali decided to marry the Saudi singer Waad or the Kuwaiti singer Shams (and both are worse than Hayfa Wehbe)?! I do not think it will ever be. Here I find my self in defence of Lebanon (the beautiful face of the Levant and Mediterranean).

 

Lebanon to us is history, civilisation, natural beauty and resistance. Lebanon to us is culture; the culture of  Jubran Khalil Jubran, Mikhail Naime, Nizar Qabbani, Bchara ElKhouri, Fairouz, Majida elRoumi  and Marcel Khalife. Lebanon to us is freedom; resistance of Zionism, sovereignty and independance from Arab oppression. Hayfa Wehbe and her alikes are an outcome of your investments and wicked attempts to prove to the world that you are 'conservative' and 'religious' and all others are trash. You need to listen of what others think about you like the British in here for example and think about yourselves before you criticise others.

Again, I just want to ask a very important question and that is why the USA and Israel find it very easy to defeat us? The answer is very simple: ignorance and ridicule. People decide to keep quiet about these aspects but too much cannot be simply tolerated. However, it seems to me and  others that this is becoming a normal everyday activity amongst the peoples of WATANI HABEEBI ELWATAN ELAKBAR 'sabeqan' and the world of BADDI EISH '7aliyyan' therefore this is an open invitation to the whole world: BOS SHOUF E7NA BNE3MEL EH!!
