Dr. Jaballah Musa

Dear Dr. Ighneiwa:

First, I'd like to thank you for your great effort in maintaining this platform for linking Libyans around the globe. Barak Allahu Feek and congratulations on this great success!

I am always shocked and appalled of how harsh, mean, and unfair Libyans are to each other. This backward mentality is not just limited to the ruling thugs inside our beloved country. This behavior is also prevalent amongst highly educated Libyans that have been living in advanced, civilized societies for years!

The reason that compelled me to write this note is the letters that were sent in response to Dr. Jaballah's writings. I think those responses were totally unfair. The writer who signed as S on Jan. 10 questioned Dr. Jaballah's loyalty to his country based on Dr. Jaballah's letter "Alsagr Alwaheed". I find this accusation utterly ridiculous!!!! I read every word in the letter and I am at a loss to find how Mr. S reached his conclusion. Dr. Jaballah's letter was insightful, analytical, intelligent, and well written.

Mr. S may disagree with Dr. Jaballah's analysis; however, throwing wild and serious accusations about home loyalty are uncalled for. We must make an effort to learn the art of constructive dialogue. I don't want to preach, but if we can't treat each other with kindness and consideration and give others the benefit of the doubt, at least once in a while, we can hardly expect to turn Libya to the civilized, democratic country that every writer to this page dreams about.

Take care,

Mughtarib
