The Aqsa Is Calling

Oww Arabia, isn’t it about time to go forth to liberate Al-Aqsa from the never ending violations that it faces daily?
Isn’t it time to put our hands together to face the daily abuses this holy city is facing as I write my pains on to this piece of  paper?
Isn’t it time for our consciences to awaken from the coma that we have been in for over 65 years now?
Jerusalem the cradle of civilizations, forgive us for neglecting you for so long, but we have been kept busy thinking how to turn a dollar into two, and how to turn sand into gold drifting us away from you..
Oww Arabia shouldn’t you be ashamed of yourself, Jerusalem is being raped, suppressed and violated and not a word of condemnation was spoken?! And that is the weakest of faith.

Jerusalem is facing a fierce onslaught by groups of extreme Israeli settlers jeopardizing the true identity of this old holy city distorting the Arabic identity of the city and threatening the lives of the original Jerusalem inhabitants, a state of Judaization of Jerusalem eradicating Muslim and Christian Arabs from their homes to make way for more defiled settlers to occupy what’s left of the 2nd half of the city. And what do we give Jerusalem in return? A lousy  conference under the name of  “Jerusalem Conference”  where More than 350 Arab and international personalities representing about 70 countries as well as experts and researchers, historians and legal Arabs and foreigners belonging to all religions all gather in the Air Conditioning cooled halls of Doha to discuss the “status of Jerusalem assembled through four key areas covering aspects of the case, namely: Jerusalem and the international law, and history of Jerusalem, Jerusalem, settlements (Israeli violations), Jerusalem and civil society organizations.” And adapting packages of development plans in various sectors to strengthen the steadfastness of Jerusalemites in facing the IDF war monster, digging activities under The first Qiblah of Islam and the third of the Two Holy Mosques Under the pretext of excavation activities for alleged Temple of Solomon.
Nothing more than conferences, conventions, seminars and meeting, and all we hear at the end are statements, declarations and speeches on how we will help the Jerusalemites in facing Judaization of Jerusalem… words and promises no more...

Mobilization Effect!

The Mobilization policy, a deep rooted approach, that has become a culture adapted by the Jordanian government- both Civil and Security sectors- has resulted in a wave of violence that has plunged the streets of Jordan like a tsunami, taking us back to Pre-Islamic Arabia with the detested practices of tribalism, sectarian, regionalism and what I would like to call as Ideologism, where the “social fabric” is suffering a crack that is solely the results of the Mobilization approach with the local media serving this policy. By following the media and newspapers you see ideas and words being planted into the minds of readers such as "opposition" vs. "pro-regime", "East Bank Jordanian" vs. "West Bank Jordanian", "North" vs. "South", "Beduin" vs. "Fallah (peasants)" and the list goes on, and by looking at recent recent events such as the uncivilized stabbing incidents that targeted two young activists; Inas Msallam and Ibrahim Dmour, we see a perfect example of the success of this policy where it is quite obvious that they were attacked based on their Political beliefs, although the officials have denied having any relations to those incidents and blamed it on "emotional issues" for Inas -where they questioned the girls honor- and gave a very weak story about Ibrahim's stabbing incident blaming it on a gang, as they rushed in giving promises to investigate in these incidents, but the question that rises, will they take these cases seriously? Or will they be thrown into the drawers and forgotten like the many other acts of harassment that happened such as the attack on the Muslim Brotherhood offices in Almafraq, or the attack that Targeted H.E. Ahmad Obaidat in Salhoub, or the attack against one of Jordan’s Opposition leaders Laith Shubeilat.

Regardless to whether what happened was planned or pure coincidence, questioning their honor, questioning their patriotism, questioning their origins, such practices have proven that the loyalty to the regime is no longer absolute due to the lack in the ability to contain the current situation and present substantial steps towards a true political reform, allowing freedom in expressing opinion and  loosening the security grip by limiting security authorities meddling in the political life and labeling lots of issues a taboo.

Such underestimations and questionings will only make things worse as the opposition has become and it is growing larger by the day, reaching approximately 40 to 50% of the overall population, You cannot tempt providence and always triumph, as one day Karma will turn right back on whoever is responsible and bite them in the face, that’s when things go out of hand and become disastrous.
