“Rats are treated with more humanity!” These were the words of Sami al-hajj, aljazeera cameraman, moments after being freed from the American-made hell in Guantanamo Bay!
The man, who spent more than 6 years in that evil prison, did not hesitate to speak up for his fellow friends in that prison. He could just celebrate his freedom with family and friends, and continue his life peacefully!
Sami spoke up! With the dignity of an Arab, he couldn’t forget those years of insult!
Was it because he is a Muslim, he had to face years of humiliation. Or it could be because he is an Arab? Or maybe because he is an African! All reasons show America’s real face! A regime filled with racism and arrogance, that’s the real face of Bush’s administration.
Sami was finally released. But, about 275 of his mates are still behind the bars! Sami had people to back his freedom. But, many others don’t have!
When the freedom of one man is very difficult to achieve, this means something is wrong! Unfortunately, many things are wrong these days!
America, world’s number one democracy is demonstrating the true face of its democracy! Just like Aristotle’s democracy; value the voice of your people only. Never others!
I ask myself now, is the west falling in the same mistake again? Thinking they are worth respect while others are not! When Plato spoke on his Ideal Republic, he spoke as if Greeks were the only living humans on earth! And now, when Americans practice democracy, the practice it on their people only!
I don’t hate the West. And I’m not into such sick ideas like the Conflict of Civilizations or the Conspiracy Theory. I’m just reading their history. And every time I try to see the good face of the Western Civilization. I see an unjust and racist one!
For God’s sake, why?!
