Ce qui suit est ma réaction a un billet posté par A. Jmai dans un blog du Washignton Post. C’est en Anglish. Je m’en excuse auprès de mes quelques lecteurs francophones mais ça restera l’exception qui m’a privé du temps de vous causer Français. J’essayerai de me rattraper. Promis.
Let me try a high-noon bird-eye view of an owl on Moroccan politics
Throughout the world, islamism and faith based politics made a loosing pact from the get go, and the devil is in the details. Wrong time, wrong motives, wrong tools, wrong tree.. Opportunists of all kind, oppressive regimes, and their partners in the business invested in processing the rest of us have-no-dogs-in-the-fight and boy are they making a killing.
Radical religious ideologies, “Islamism” being the most singled out and talked about these days, pray on the weak the oppressed and the disenfranchised. Like AIDS there is no cure in sight and prevention is the only hope we nurture. The case for democracy and preemptive action to “crush” terror and protect the innocent can no longer be made after all what happened in the Middle East, Thanks to Bush policies,
Thanks to Bush policies,
Yes there maybe more illiterates in morocco than human decency could care for. Ignorance on the other hand is worse and our elite have no clue about what’s happening in their own backyard. Who do you think really needs help?
There are many people like me who were able to walk the long path down the clayed (S’msar) horn book (Louha) every bit of the stroke of a bamboo pen crafted on the spot (kalam) dipped in sheep shit made into ink (somkh) who simply forgot that it is possible to light up a mind even with sheep shit!
Our elite embedded with the political parties (how many?) are engaged in strategic maneuvering to gain power over their own for the very sake of just that. Power. At the present time islamists appear to have the upper hand. How do they do it? I bet everyone involved in the political process in
If the media plays a role in shaping public opinion, the case of
Blaming it all on illiteracy is out right ignorance indeed. Mom can’t read a word of anything but she surely can spank the right out of any wrong. PJD and alikes by decoding the needs and the culture of illiteracy beat our moderate elite to the cookie jar: The grassroots.
There isn’t much left to do for our politically lettered at this time, except maybe come down their white horses, roll up some sleeves and start backing the goods. Otherwise one way or the other, whether they win or loose, radicals and extremists will have us all locked up in the jar, and no one, even Bush the supreme demander decider can get us out of it.
Who is not pissed off about the way things are being done to our people Boubker? Should we simply allow constant anger sidetrack the little ordinance we have (ie free press) from the bull’s-eye and settle for a glorious loss, (is that what it’s all about?) or fight (with sheep shit if we have to) to win the battle for democracy and social justice? Even if we have to smile and pat some backs when it deserves. Politics is not my line of action. I squat in the receiving end, and boy do I feel it!
Holy crap! Look at yourself Boubker you can’t even spell a word in your columns without taking a piss at it. Just as coward as many of us laureates of theoretical shouting, holding a trumpet out of tune with our folks who have no clue what battle they are being rounded up for.
Politics is not my line of action. I squat in the receiving end, and boy do I feel it!
I do beg to believe in our people. Illiterate or not, they still are my people, and yes they are building the best they can with what they have and it is beautiful. And yes they will prevail as the new generations build their own path to happiness. The Moroccan way.
