Dear Dr Ghunaywah,
Regarding the news story below, about Mohammed Addarat being so thrilled with becoming an American citizen - shame on him and his likes! What is it about us Libyans? We have an inferiority complex the size of the USA; that's why we don't like our neighbours and that's why we go around pretending we are great, when in fact we are the most backward and primitive people in North Africa.
You don't like Gaddafi, well, he's the archetypical Libyan! We deserve Gaddafi and we deserve the backward and self-serving rabble who call themselves "the Libyan opposition", from the hypocrites who call themselves "Muslims" to the British and American hirelings, the so-called "monachists".
Tuesday, 26 September, 2000: For Mohammed Addarat, becoming an American citizen is the culmination of a childhood dream. Addarat, who is from Libya, was among nearly 100 people who took their oaths Friday to become naturalized American citizens. The Lexington resident works as an information technologist. Addarat said it took about 2 1/2 years to complete his naturalization process. He has already graduated from high school in the United States and said the ceremony Friday completed a process he has been thinking about since childhood. ''This feels good. I've been wanting to do this since I was a kid,'' Addarat said. [The Kentucky Post]
