I was puzzled and slightly sad of some reactions towards the current situation in egypt.
My emotions are totally stressed and inflamed so i won’t talk much but rather state my concern straight to the point.
On face book…on blogs…on twitter…some of you and some of your friends reacted in one or many of the following responses:
– a complete cold shoulder and ignoring the subject.
– saying: we have no business in the egyptian business…khaleena fe 7alna.
– mocking the situation…some insulted Egyptians calling the lame or copying Tunis.
– some gloated.
– some blamed their friends for taking a stand or showing heart and compassion to egyptian freedom.
It was hurtful and left me puzzled and asking myself why…
If it’s because the egyptian government played against their causes and screwed their countries, well…yeah it happened but it happened from the very government we are rebelling against…not from the people…on the contrary…when plastanians suffer from their internal situation on daily basis every egyptian support them and we cry blood instead of tears for them…during the Lebanon war and also for Iraq…egyptians demonstarted for them and we would watch the news and cry because we can’t help…and because our government is lame…so…guys around arab countries…egyptian epople was never an enemy…if it’s because you hate egyptian people lelah fe lelah…then ok, at least support freedom as a meaning…
Doesn’t it inspire you?
five years ago i received more than a 100 comment on my jeeran blog supporting me when i was in a painful personal situation!!
five weeks ago bloggers gathered from every country to celebrate the good old blogging days….and now…when millons of people are rebelling against corruption, brutality and injustice…people mention it shamefully or not support it at all.
Anyway…as sad as i am…I am also proud of my courageous friends who call me for support…take the heat from their friends when they speak highly of my revolution…or chose to have a stated opinion rather than a silent one!
