Revolution? …The Middle East region is not stable currently, due to the number of uprising that is taking place, starting from Tunisia, Egypt to Yemen, Bahrain, Libya and lastly Syria. But long before them, the Lebanese and the South Sudanese did revolt against their government and leaders of the society. South Sudanese were successful able to obtain their freedom from the government and the culture that for long did discriminate them for been an African Sudanese not Arab Sudanese. So, the problem in Sudan was mainly in the government that failed to provide a portion of its citizens with their rights. But before asking for rights, we citizens should first ask for our duties.
I can not and will not deny the fact that many of our governments in the Middle East are actually discriminating their citizens and what our leaders apparently care about are themselves alone. Our leaders which are now facing the frustration of their own people, their own community, are but monsters that agreed to step over the values,dignity and principles of humanity.They stepped over it, when they killed journalism for expressing their opinions, they stepped over people’s dignity, when they raped prisoners and normal people just because they commented or upload a video “mocking” the government. They stepped over humanity, when they gave the elites thousands of dollars and took for the poor cents of cents. They stepped over humans, in return they got villas and companies and owned banks of cash.
The uprising did take place in many countries and these similar countries are now facing the really challenge, the challenge of transformation. The transformation is the change in the culture that for longed ruled over us, the wrong tradition that allowed us not to listen to ours’ opinions, kill a girl for honor, murder a baby girl just because the father wants a son instead, punish the girl instead of her raper etc. What are the Middle Eastern society looking for after the revolutions? do they want a new president with a new “sat” of members in the parliament, or did the revolution call for much more. The real challenge is starting now, we need to learn and teach the younger generation, HOW to respect our’s opinion, NO! i mean RESPECT! ….HOW to DISCUSS not fight, HOW to “act” the democracy we call for. It is not a matter of voting, or elections or joining a political parties, it is about been against (i will say it again) the wrong tradition and cultures that for long ruled us. The real challenge is about caring for the country that we hold its name, it is about been HUMANS and before asking the transitional government to be transparent and democrat, we citizens need to allow our fellow citizen to express their opinions and talk freely…..
Exercise Democracy…Expresses your duties before Asking for your rights…
