4/3/2008 - Real Arab Heroes

 

Where can one find  the power of the Arabs ?  Who are their heroes ?  Sahaladin who freed Al Qutz?  Weak, he was a Kurd to start with and his ideals died when the crusaders lost interest in religion and concentrated on other things.  Besides, Salahadin died long ago.  Jamal Abdel Nasr ?  Panarabism is long dead and Masris are more interested in Zamalek and Ahley.

 

The greatest hope for a bright future are the Arab women.  Well educated, openminded with an eye on their past and their heritage.  A clear vision of a better future and a holy fire burning inside them.

 

Three names

 

Wajiha Al-Huweidar (Saudi)

Mousa Al Misnad (Qatar)

Wafi Sultan  (Syria)

 

Three cultures, three backgrounds but exactly the same backbone.  Strong and independent characters with an eye on the reality.  Wallah !    Not afraid of changes, strong believers in a better world.

 

I suggest to send these three women to negotiate a peace deal in the Middle East.

 

True, they would probably drive some Orthodox Jews to suicide and Nasrullah to the nearest pub for a double whiskey.  But hey :  would they stop the nonsense and waste in the region.  In a five year plan they would turn PalestineDisneyland. Each inhabitant fat and tormented with a new problem :  where to park his Mercedes 500SL in a historic city without parking space. in a giant religious

 

For you, infidel from the west, these three women are probably as unknown as Abu Nawas.  If you are not too lazy, google them or try to find them on Youtube.

Its worth it and might change your vision of the Arab world.

 

First there is Wafi Sultan

I love this women.  You will find her on Memritv. Org.  She is la bete noire or the nightmare of  every bearded muttawa who believes to be Allah’s right hand on earth. 

I don’t know if she is atheist or agnostic.  But she is a firm believer in the light of reason.

She has the courage to kick all Islamic dogmatic males in the testicles.  And she does it with sound and rational arguments.

Arabic men :  listen to her.  No, not with two Korans pressed firmly against your ears, but with an open mind. 

 

Then there is Wajiha Al-Huweidar.

Ever heard a Saudi admitting that his father was a laborer ?  Ever seen a Saudi understanding anything about manual labor ?  Oh Yes they love the Ferrari or Mercedes,  but will never understand that people who take pride in their work, have made these cars.  The Japanese honor craftsmen.   Master carpenters, sword makers, instrument makers and so on,  are paid by government to keep their craft alive.  The Arabs ignore them.  Yes, Arabs embrace all new technology religiously.  They are fond of every gimmick that the market feeds them.  But they are unable to recognize craftsmanship.  That is precisely why the whole Arab world doesn’t produce 1 world class product. 

That is also why Saudis import Indians and Bengalis to do all manual jobs.  Saudis hate it.  They want to be managers and are unable to be proud of any manual labor. 

Well, there is an exception.  Wajiha Al Huweidar.  She is proud that her father was a laborer.  She is fighting openly for the women in Saudi but she is also a realist.  Just imagine her years ago, next to the Shah instead of Faradibah.  There would never have been a Savac and people would never have heard about Khomeiny (except a few French onion sellers who had the dubious privilege of having a bearded idiot exiled in their village)

 

Which brings us to the hidden force in the Middle east :  Mousa Al Misnad.

The third (or second?) wife of the Emir Khalifa Al Thani of Qatar.

Who put Qatar on the world map ?  10 years ago nobody in the world knew about the existence of Qatar.  Well, I admit, some diplomats who had shown a bit too much interest in local pre pubescent boys were relocated to Doha and knew to their own detriment about the existence of Qatar (but soon found locally an ample supply of suitable house hold help)   But besides them ?  Al Jazeera was not yet beating American chains and only known in the Arab world. 

Qatar was terra incognita.  Sheicha Mousa put Qatar on the map.

 

Now :  you cant switch on BBC-World without being confronted with Qatar.  In 5 years it switched from ultra conservative to Dubai’s altar boy.  I have been told it is even discovered by the pimps of the Stan republics.

 

Qatar is building, booming and developing. It opened a window to the world.  And what is most amazing :  this silent revolution does not alienate the Qataris :  no they follow.

 

Sheicha Mousa opened Qatar to the world and she is the real force.  Since her favorite color is yellow we could call it the yellow revolution.  But then, that was something launched in Manila by a women whos motives where not so noble.

 

Mousa, Wajiha and Wafi : are not alone.  I am certain there are thousands of them whose voice we will never hear. 

The infidel brewer salutes them all.  If the ME ever wants peace and a bright future :  I hope the men will listen to you.  (and if they don’t, I am confident that you will find a way to make them listen or at least go into the direction you want them to go)
