Observations

In the name of Allah ( most merciful and the source of peace and mercy )

I am not a very learned man of religon or politics, but I love my country (Libya) and I will defend it and its people however I can. I am only writing my observation, and I advise all that are willing to harken to my humble words.
From my past readings to most of the articles posted on this wonderful page (Libya our home), I formed these observations and thought it wise for me to give this advice. My biggest hope, as it should be the hope of all Libyans, is to see our Libya a free nation that cares for its citizens and grants them all their rights to free speach and free existance. As the age of internet has given us the opportunity to engage in the most needed debate concerning our destiny as Libyan citizens, we must behave with the most civilized and respectful fashion when we phantom our ideas and take part in this "dialogue". To cut it short, I will state the following observations and some advice :

  1. I find it repulsive for any libyan to keep bombarding my ears with racest remarks that come from a deep rooted hatred that was planted by our ancestors; Eastern, western, Arab, Native and whatever else; When Islam abolished these ideas long ago.
  2. Much effort, I believe is wasted on writing about corrption and the status of our country under its current regime, when this effort will yeild fruitfully if it was directed towards writing about solutions, and organized debates about the ways we all can help one another to achieve our nobel goals.
  3. I came to respect a lot of writers that offered solutions to our problems and refrained from mocking and disrespecting others just for being in disagreement ;on the other side of the coin.
  4. I can't understand how debating very old matters like the existance of God, the Quran and the Arabic language is going to help us to bring peace and justice to our people. The sad thing is that " one" is trying to question the Quran linguastically with the learing of a sixth grader, I mean gramatically, to try to doubt it. Any learned one knows that ( Arabic Grammer) came long after the Quran and the Arabic language. And a much higher learning of Arabic Grammer is needed to even scratch the service of such matters. I will tell you this, up to my grade nine I thought that "waw" is like "and " in english and according to the Grammer, what comes after it will be like what proceeds it, what we say in arabic "harif attfe". Only later on in my life I found that, that was only one case. The grammer scholars divided "waw" into nine different "waws", only one of them is "harif atf" and these nine "waws" influenced differently on their sentences.............. As to those who doubt the existance of God, let them look deep in their souls and pray and seek and they shall find him if they really are looking for him. Now if they wanted a clear cut sign from God to make them believe , then what would their belief be worth?? what would their belief be worth when it is forced upon them by the sign and not by their own free well??.......... To those who disrespect the prophet (pbuh) and his companions, you tell me, how does that benefit them or their readers?? All other nations hold their forefounders in the most high regard while they do this to these giants that are respected even by their adversaries. All I say is Shame on them who would do such things.
  5. Those who want us to be like the westerners, I myself have been living with them ( westerners) for more than twenty years, I can honestly tell you they can not shine a candle to our own people. All the glammer is fake and the inside is full of poblems. I would choose our way of life over the westener's way of life anytime.
  6. Do not dare suggest that we seek external intervention in solving Libya's problems, I will not respect such a solution under anyway shape or form. Thank you, we do not need it.
  7. I apologize if anyone had been offended by this and wish that we all use our knowledge and resources for the good of our country, maybe that will bring to us all the things that we wish for, freedom and independance. I mean that we all work together no matter what our views are only if we unite we can help each other.

Finally I want to send my deep regards to the following brothers :
Faraj el-Fakhri, Salah Abdelaziz, Essa Abdelqayoum, Mohammed Qadri el-Khoja, Mohammed Ali Erhouma , Abdelwanis Mahmoud el-Hasi, Jaballah Mousa, Salem Mohammed, Mustafa Mohammed al-Bruki, and Gherbal and many others whom I came to respect and admire. And peace from allah to all of us, peace from allah for Libya.

Naser Masoud
