What the story of Panamanian President (dictator) Manuel Antonio Noriega?!
I just heard one of the analysts mentioning him after Sadaam execution and how this one who used to serve USA Government was blessed till he tried to quit,, USA Forces easily entered to Panama by force and took him to prison in USA!!!
Wow,, Just like that!!!!! Well, he was also another dictator who served USA G very well, and then he decided to stop, so they punished him. Weird!
Last year 2006, many of dictators around this world died,, mostly naturally, except Sadaam. I just read about who died in 2006!
During last week, I watched 2 versions for 1 movie! It's (The Message). It was really nice and very touching one! The English version was on MBC2 while the Arabic version was on MBC1. I really LOVE Anthony Quinn,, he was really GREAT actor! He always touches my soul with his performing. Very talented indeed!
He played the character of Hamza,, while another GREAT Arabic actor played Hamza in Arabic version and his name was Abdullah Gayth (his brother Hamde Gayth played Abu Sofyan in same version). Abdullah Gayth died long time ago, but Hamde Gayth died in March last year.
It was one of the great works of our beloved Director Mustafa Al Akkad who tried to spread the real message of Islam, but sadly the message of terrorists took his life with his sweet daughter and many others in wedding in Amman's hotels.
But my notice about this movie that 2 versions isn't same with same scenario and same Texts. I mean, there were good texts especially when Suheil said the conditions of truce in Arabic,, but in English one, there was shortening and they didn't mention all conditions!! Also, there were good phrases to say after that when Muslims were telling people about Islam and its teachings, I heard it in Arabic, but not the same in English!
Anyway, I hope you can watch this movie because it a good one and really give you even a little closer look to how first Muslims suffered to spread this GREAT light!
I watched another movie. Well, not from the beginning, but at least I caught it from the middle,, (Syriana) with George Clooney and Matt Damon. I can't say much or praise it, but at least, they put small hints or details about the reasons behind Iraq's war (and consequences) with all that tangled relations between lords of war and rich lands and peoples.
Well, Not that bad for a first move to make new scripts, New reality ideas and away -but not so far- from the American Hero ICON! They ended it in that way, but still.
I always get used to watch American HEROES, who beat all their enemies: Vietnamese, Japanese, Russians, Europeans, Arabs, Muslims, North Koreans and even Aliens!! (and save the day,, no not only the day, but save the planet or even universe from such enemies!)
That reminded me with someone (I can't remember who), who said: Americans can't live without enemy!! They should find anyone to be their enemy,, that their structure!! So, when their battles with all their enemies stopped, they needed to find new one!! Well, that was Arabs and Muslims time.
I also noticed that in 24 hours! With that actor (I don't know him, but I hate him! No not for 24, but he played in a movie as a rapist and a criminal and killed a woman's daughter, so she kept tracking him and finally when he came to her house to kill her, she killed him,, it was so ugly role and yes, I hate him since that day).
In 24, they create enemies and it is funny to hear familiar names like Habib Marwan or Ali or Saaber or Mustafa…etc!! and even read Arabic scripts!! So, then how can normal people deal with us especially with people with such names!!
I read about many Muslims and Muslim parents who change their kids' names!! I even read a touching story about girl called Khadeja,, Khadeja a Muslim girl live in France and one day she went to visit her father's grave in Muslim graveyard, she was weeping and crying so hard and asking her father to forgive her! What she did.. What her story: in that day she went to change her name and her family name to famous French name and surname!! She did that after she failed to find a job despite her excellent degree (she even surpassed the original French students). When companies know about her high and excellent degree, they accept her till she comes with her real name, then they reject her application!
For that, she did as many other like her and changed her beautiful Arabic name to French name to be accepted! That beautiful name that her father chose it for her!! She did that to find a job and to live as she can't live without job. She asked her father to forgive what she did as she had no choice!!
I cried when I read this,, what happen to our world, are Muslims going to be the New Jews and suffer from racism?!!
Finally, let's go away from that stupid and selfish government of USA to lovely people of USA!! I watched in program called 20/20 a report called (Are Americans Cheap? Or Charitable?). It was really nice one as I always watch this kind of reports in this program and really enlighten me and separate between official or governmental aid from ordinary people aid. Also, the ordinary people are really giving and more helpful and don't think twice to help if they can! I think this feature exists in all people of this world and away from their governments or political strategies.
