To Whom It May Concern

To whom it may concern,

It is an extremely pleasant moment to finally come across a call from one of the Libyan men for a gathering of all free Libyans to discuss their future. Such a unifying step should have taken a place from long time ago to drift all the efforts together towards solidarity. The Libyan case until recently has been ignored for the longest time for some whatever reason. Recently, Libyans smelled the odor of freedom and felt the winds of change. What an ecstasy to witness the vividness of our dreams come true with the complete fall of the regime in Libya and what a whimsy of pride it must feel after a long time of agony. With all these cheerful feelings bundled in my heart and soul for the change I see is upcoming among the opposition plane, I still helplessly find my self a pit worried.

I keep digging harder in to my soul trying to find the source of anxiousness to treat it. I keep looking closer in to all the announcements of other people posted on various sites. I keep observing silently all the movements and tactics made by several Libyans towards outside organizations whom some of which might have a hand in the wind of change. Suddenly, I figured out the roots of my apprehensiveness and the cause of my concerns.

There are two separate aspects causing the problem. The first aspect is all these hidden agendas carried by all the different factors of the equation. There are many agendas hidden among different Libyan organizations on one side not to mention the hidden goals by other superior outsider establishments whom following a very long term strategy and objectives and which of whom will play a role in the change of our future weather we like it or not. Furthermore, we must not forget all the regional roles carried by some main players whom must benefit from the Libyan wealth and will keep it that way for a long time.

It will be disastrous if our representatives focus only on these aspects of the equation looking to accomplish their own goals and fail to remember the real needs of the Libyan people inside and outside Libya. Even more, the idea of ignoring Libyans inside Libya who must play a role in the change because of their backgrounds, their knowledge of the people, and above all their right as Libyans to take part of control in ruling their country would be imprudent on our side. Not to forget, that this might very well be one of the only opportunities for all of us to gather the efforts, unite the voice, and take the initiative to forcefully take part of the change. If we do not practice the ultimate discipline in our leadership skills which according to almost all Management scalars in the eastern and western world start at recognizing our goal, prioritizing our objectives, clarifying our vision, uniting our efforts, wising up our decisions, then we will certainly fail once again.

The second aspect of my worry and the most important one is that what if this coming wind that we are all feeling is just another PAN AM that will extend the life of the regime for another 10 to 15 years. If you look closely at what the regime has been doing lately on both levels regionally and internationally, they endeavor to rebuild strong ties with the neighboring countries which they have succeeded drastically. The more monetary rewards the regime pumps into the so called African Union and the region, the more support he gets. Internationally, we see stronger bonds with Italy, France, England, and Bulgaria with more to come. Logically, it doesn’t seem like it’s the death of a regime at this time on the contrary it seems like its an extension to it is validity. In the beginning of the year supposedly there will be elections in Libya according to bold Saif!! I wonder if that is another game of the tricks played on our people!!!!! I hope not.

All that I am trying to say here is:
IT IS VERY WISE TO UNITE AND FORCE OUR WAY INTO THE CHANGE BUT WE MUST BE WISE BY DISREGARDING PERSONAL AGENDAS FOR THE TIME BEING, LOOK AFTER THE PUBLIC BENEFIT, SET OUR GOAL, MOVE TOWARDS IT, FORGET OUR DIFFERENCES FOR LIBYA’S SAKE.
