I Have Been Published



Two weeks ago, I wrote the following comment in Arabic at Abu Rummaneh's blog, concerning the bombings in London:

“In a few years those thieves (jihadists) have betrayed a civilisation and a history that took thousands of years for our ancestors to build. And how much did that cost them? A few kilograms of explosives and a handful of straying souls.” [translated from Arabic]

Apparently, someone from The Times of London liked what I wrote, translated it to English, and used it as a title for an article regarding the world reactions to the bombings.

Someone else at Harvard Law School’s global voices organization also liked it, and post it at their site.

I wanna thank Abu Rummaneh who turned my attention to this. I also wanna thank Omar, whose post about the same subject was published by The Guardian, for wishing me the same when I congratulated him (apparently the big guy upstairs listens to you!!).

I am glad to see that these terrorists no longer have the show for themselves, and the world is finally listening to the other (real) voices in the Arab world.
