A Point Of Clarity

Ladies and Gentlemen

I have just had a chance to read Mr. Rajib Ramadan personal attack against me. I am at a loss to the reason why. I am not that Zoologist and I do not think that I remember ever meeting or hearing of anyone by the name of Rajib Ramadan. I must have somehow done something serious to him to warrant such an assault on my family and me. Why he decided I am the Zoologist is also beyond me. I do hope that both Dr. Ibrahim and Mr. Zoologist himself can confirm this. First of all, if Mr. Ramadan bothered to look carefully he will see that I never claimed that Dr. Errishi is anonymous, nor did I attack Dr. Errishi. Even if Dr. Errishi is anonymous what has his family got to do with a political or ideological conflict between us? However judging by the tone and substance of the post by Mr. Ramadan I am quite surprised that he left Libya at all. He assumptions, accusations, thought process, and language betray a gutter mentality that has a lot of potential for the Libyan regime. It also betrays cowardice. Who is Rajib Ramadan? I have no idea but to me he is no better than anonymous. I did not tell him to follow me or idolize me or choose me as his leader. Nor for that matter did I ask him to believe anything I said. I have faith that Allah (SWT) knows that Mr. Ramadan has no shame and will reward him with as much pain and insult as Mr. Ramadan tried to heap upon an innocent man. I leave him to his maker to deal with him. I have never posted under any name other than mine and to give and take with him leaves me at a disadvantage because while he knows whom I am, I do not know whom he is. Again I would refer to something I read on this web site "Al-Safih iysafhak" and Mr. Ramadan Isafah.

On a different note I am led to believe that some of you are contemplating asking Dr. Ibrahim to censor some of the posts particularly after Mr. Ramadan wrote his filthy drivel. I strongly object to that. I know that sometimes we are forced to hear dirt from some of our adversaries and from some shameless individuals who post on this page. We must accept the good with the bad and only when we learn to tolerate criticism even from the lowest of the low will we be able to start thinking about building a better Libya. I know sometime the lies and attacks hurt but that is unfortunately the price of learning to be free. I am sorry for taking so much of your time and thank you for listening.
