People's Power

Again the ghastly, ridiculous leaders of the middle east blame everyone else but themselves for the unrest in their country!
Leaders of Iran, instead of accepting that they are not wanted by their people, what do they do? they blame America and Britain for the unrest! do not blame yourselves and your dictatorships!
Things never change, I remember as a boy growing up in Libya in the 70s, we used to be forced to go on marches supporting the government, I can still remember the members of the secret service telling us at school that if we do not join the march or if we leave the march and go home that they have cameras and will know and that we would be punished severely, imaging that! boys and girls under the age of 16 threatened with all sorts of horrible acts if they do not support their government! unfortunately it is the same in many Arab and middle east countries and when the people dare to speak up they are branded traitors and terrorists.
I only hope and pray that the people of Iran do not suffer anymore and I wish them the best for what they are doing is heroic and lacking in many middle eastern countries. Allah with you.

Today is Father's Day and I wish all dads all over the world a happy and peaceful Father's Day. My lovely kids got me a card and gifts which you can see in the above picture, Allah bless them for they did make me a happy and proud father.
Today is also the longest day of the year, from tomorrow days start to get shorter, that is a depressing thought since it sounds like summer is over!
Weather in London has been quite good recently, lets hope it continues to be nice and warm for a change.

I myself do remember these marches, when I was in my intermediate and secondary school and even in my last years of primary school, we used to march from the school to god knows where, and usually the organizers didn’t have a clue to where!! However the majority of us, didn’t continue and instead we marched back home. :o).

Happy father's day and may Allah bless your children and protect them .

Did you show up at my College of Education at Tripoli University in April 7, 1976 :-)

You could see things were turning from bad to worse since that day, after I graduated I never came back, 4 years in college was enough for me in Libya, it was great experience but freedom was the most I believe in but you pay a high price for it.

we used to be scared but I remember as we grew a bit older we realised that there were no camera or detecting machines so we too marched a bit then straight home :o)
Happy Father's Day to you too.

Thank you LovelyH :o)

I probably did show up at your college, as weldemdina said the organizers had no clue where we were going! and ended up in many places.
Happy Father's Day to you too and I am sorry but I missed the photos

Salam Anglo-Libyan,

Very well written and expressed. It does seem easier to point the finger at others (U.S. & Britain) while still having three pointing back at one's self (Iran). I'm so happy for those people that were able to get out or escape from such awful living conditions, and continue to grief for those that aren't as lucky to get out from under such ridiculousness.

Happy Father's Day!

اخي انجلو كل عام وانت بخير بمناسبة يوم الاب ادامك الله لاسرتك اما بالنسبة لتغير التوقيت فهذا ناتج عن ما يسمى بالانقلاب الصيفي فكما تعلم ان الصيف دخل فلكيا يوم 21 يونيو وينتهي يوم 23 سبتمبر اي تاني او ثالث ايام عيد الفطر ان شاء الله.

Am glade you had a lovely fathers day with the kids .The 70s and the 80s were a bad time here in Libya . Much like the Bush years and the Patriot Act there in the USA .All politicians are alike... here , there , and everywhere .

ربما على الشعب العربى الذى يراقب من المحيط للخليج ان يتعلم ويعى جيدا اهمية هذا الدرس ..فخروج الشعب الايرانى للتظاهر ضد نتيجة الانتخابات تجربة سبق للشعب الايرانى خوضها عندما خرج لاشهر طويلة ايام حكم الشاه ورغم سقوط الكثير من الضحايا والاختفاءت القسرية والاهارب الا ان صمود الشعب فى وجه قمع الدولة ساهم فى اسقاط نظام الشاه واعلان الجمهورية الايرانية ..يعرف الشعب الايرانى ان الانقاذ والتغيير لن يحل عليه من الخارج..يؤلمنى عندما اقارن بين الحالتين ...مودتى وصباحك خير بإذناالله
