These Are The Real Issues|
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Following the interesting intellectual debate in "Libya News and Views Letters" I would like to take this opportunity to make few comments on some of the issues tackled by Libyan thinkers.
Libya historically is a land of rich mix of cultures; we should not fear our Berber brothers we should encourage diversity and we should not deny them the opportunity to enjoy their language and culture. Some properly will describe me as a separatist but I am most properly more wiser than a separatist. Many civilisations flourished by impasses other cultures and many nations built by the other the different; look around you and you will see plenty of examples of culture fostering a new term maybe but it is true.
We the democrats welcome other cultures and the other the different and this is not an issue in our agenda in our political agenda we respect the people and the ballot box we respect the people's choice whatever it may be.
Our debate is a workable mechanism system for a an eastern civil society some may say it is democracy some may say it is shawra or whatever you want to name it but the fundamentals are the same. Any system must pass the checks and balances and the approval of the majority of the Libyan people.
I would hope that the debate move a bit to the real issues which is a united front with a united strategy to achieve stage one which is by the a civil democratic state which guarantees at least a minimum standard of political and cultural freedoms and participations to all so people can start to achieve and move forward. Why Libyans could not form a united front to achieve stage one? Where are the leaders? Where is the charismatic leader? These are the real issues.
