Dear Ambassador, HE Mr. Eng. Karim Kawar:
I enjoyed reading and hearing your recent remarks in
the world media in favor of secretary of state Mr.
Collin Powel regarding the Middle East fairness, human
right, women rights, and democratization. Yes your
excellency, we would like to see that our Arab countries join the rest of the world in electing
officials, having equal rights to women, and having a
great human right record each year. However the
situation as I know it and as you know it, is not one
that you could achieve with 29 Million US$,
Mr. Ambassador, your excellency, two years ago I was
about to enjoy a trip to see my parents in Jordan
(Jarash), after having worked a long hard year in the
USA-Florida, instead I was diverted from the airport
to the GID, after which I was tortured by your friends
at the GID for three days, who then throw me at the
capital jail with criminals and for no good reason.
Mr. Ambassador, I would like to seek your advice on whether such a story be told to the media and in particular to Mr. Powel, and remind him that his friendly king has men around him who are involved in a great deal of human right abuse including members of his own family such as Prince Raid who took part in my torture (ask him about the Texas Dr., Mr. Abu Melhim story). Your excellency my chats on the Internetm included discussions regarding corruption, drug dealings, illegal access to have monopoly over national resources such as public telephones license, IT, radio frequency license, cellular phones license, medical equipment, …etc, and even arm smuggling by top officials in Jordan, all of which were removed and instead the GID performed insertion of remarks against your king that were put to set me up and then send mem to the military court, whose judges and prosecutors are highly influenced by the GID and the corrupt officials in Jordan (this is per their testimony in private talks in their houses!). All of the chats that included acquisitions against the corrupt Majalies, Sherif Zaid, Sherif Raid, were removed from my file by the GID, but included a modified version of a chat the I did in which I gave my opinion regarding a king who is knew to me and to all Jordanians, based on what I have always heard about him in the streets of Jordan.
As a result of the short vision of the GID, the incident did not cause me to feel very sorry, nor it rebelled others from expressing themselves freely in Jordan and outside Jordan, instead it had caused a great deal of agony and dislike of the king and his regime from those that had lived and heard about my story at a time the king was desperate for gaining and strengthening his popularity. "Thousands of students in Jordanian universities were circulating what I had said about the government, and were congratulating me for having been brave to stand up and say it" someone relayed that to me while in Jordan at the time. As I said, my human right violation was detailed several Internet sites and reported by several human right organizations, including publication by three US based Arab newspapers, all of which used it as an example of Arab regime terror. If I had agreed at the time, several TV stations in the USA would have aired it, and it would have been filed as an UK legal complaint against Mr. Batikhi a British citizen and a formal complaint to the US congress. But I had chosen to keep it as a lesson, which I only had paid 15000 US$ and spent 18 days in Jail, which is very cheap tuition to exploring our own current government and how it operate. So, your Excellency yes I'm for the change that you and Mr. Powel had suggested, and let us work with those who want the change for the good of our people, and not those that are only changing the rules of the game.
Finally, please forgive me your Excellency if I in this letter did any wrong. In my humble way, I only mean good for my country and its people.
