Looking for sympathy!

It is astonishing to see Gadafi meeting handicapped people. Something is going wrong with him as he became kinder and acts like a human being. What happened to Gadafi and his family? His son Seif is busy with his organisation and wants to win the world support for his humanitarian cause. The other son ElSaadi (the engineer of Sports in Libya) is organising charity football games for children . He also wants to win Libyan hearts as he failed to win football supporters votes. His daughter Aisha charity is organising an intellectual venue to win hearts of intellectuals in Libya if some one genuinely left in Libya. Maybe ElTawerian will support Aisha for her effort to raise the level of intellectual discussion to ElZahf AlAkder level. Safia is building a mosque with the longest Manara in Tripoli. It is worrying every one and me that all Abumeniar family suddenly thinking about people, or What?

I will go back to Gadafi's meeting with the poorly looked after handicapped people. Myself, I worked with handicapped children in Libya and it is very sad to mention this; they are ignored by the system in Libya and Gadafi himself like Hitler does not believ in Handicapped human beings. If you look to Gadafi, he has no sympathy even for normal intelligent and normal physically human beings in Libya. Children with difficulty in learning or has physical disability are kept in one crowded place in Swanay BeniAdam, south west of Tripoli (20Km). The condition is very poor, overcrowded, one doctor visit each week and other facilities like Physiotherapy, special trained people for schools are not there and may be you will find one or two Libyans and some unqualified nurses. If you visit this place you will have bad memory all your life not from the scale of problems children suffer from but from the facilities this group of children has been living in.

Gadafi wants people to support him and his family. He wants to erase from every Libyan's head the memories of bad days. He and his family chose the month of Ramadan and I think no one will forget 1984/1985 month of Ramadan. He wants to be the kinder and peaceful man in Libya. The handicapped people are used to their way of life and they are struggling with their fellow Libyans for just to survive. Many Libyans in this month can not get the daily necessities. ElEid is coming and many will not celebrate Eid like every one else. More than 50% will not be able to buy the Eid cloths for their children or toys or even a decent meal. By meeting handicapped people, Gadafi think he is looking after every one in this damaged and destroyed society. I think Gadafi should ask himself these questions?

Why am I doing this now?
Is it really I who cares about any Libyan Handicapped or not?
By doing this, am I fooling these poor Libyans or myself?
How long should I carry on making these scenarios?
Which of my sons should I support to help my cause of winning back Libyan hearts?

In various speeches delivered by various people in this meeting, which are very will rehearsed and revolutionised to include all names and phrases that Gadafi wants to hear even from the people who do not believe that the handicapped should be treated like ahuman beings. Gadafi went to get sympathy and he came out with many ideas. He is now more happy that every one seeing his face and learned, how brutal this man is. If you do not repeat certain slogans and put your fist in the air you will be facing this unkind face. Only one thing he could not understand; why is it that every one could not understand his mission. Maybe the next step he will look for sympathy from his ElTawerian who have been crushed to one corner by his family.

God bless Libya and Libyans and Ramadan Karim.

AbAli
