Mosawi and Jubouri on the Aljazeera


Itijah il mu3akis is showing right now, I watched it just for few minutes, I can not stand watching the whole program, it is despicable, disgusting, one sided, and predictable.
Couldn’t Faysal il 8asim choose better people to represent, but represent what? I think his choice of people is correct, he chose people rightly from the two mainstreams, from the two one-sidedness, two directions that can not meet, the ultimate Iraqi reality, and that is just fabulous for his program, since these two clashed from the first starting two seconds of the program.
Faysal opening’s claimed that thousands and thousands of emails he received, people sending their condolences for the death of the “martyr” Saddam Hussien, adding that one viewer from Tunis, paralleled Saddam’s “martyrdom” to that of Hussien, and Jesus, also he showed the initial static’s of the program’s poll –whether they are pro or against Saddam’s sentencing, four thousand people participated, a huge, crazy number, it seemed many viewers were waiting impatiently to release their excess anger and frustration , anyways, 88 point something percent were against.

After Faysal’s over cooked, sensationally hot, demographically viable introduction, he directed his first question to Mosawi, obviously a prominent Shi’a name, “what can you say to the Arabic street’s prominent opinion and beliefs” Faysal asked. Without letting him to continue, Jubouri jumped in like a parasite, interrupting the man, saying that he wants to start the program by reciting the fat7a – a verse in the Quran used for recitation over dead people’s bodies, yeah religious stuff. Him reciting the fat 7a, whilst Mosawi, continuing answering the question, was hilarious moment, but it ached me, so I just turned off the t.v. as everything deemed inevitable and predictable.
Totally sensational, yet great in depicting the mainstream mentality of both worlds, which is greatly reactionary, emotionally driven, I mean what is the use if both can’t be honest, and logical, can’t they just outline things they firstly agree on, to start a civilized dialogue, but then again, I can be biased on my own, but since I feel the need to be Iraqi first, I feel with infinite arrogance my discourse should be first and foremost. Now you wonder, what is this discourse, I will save it for later.

The program is more like a comical show than anything else. I used to watch it and laugh at Faysal and his guests.

'yet great in depicting the mainstream mentality of both worlds' is the only thing the program demonstrates.

' I mean what is the use if both can’t be honest, and logical, can’t they just outline things they firstly agree on, to start a civilized dialogue' , you are asking too much here, way too much.

honestly the more I try to understand why things happen they way they do - politically speaking in that part of the world or even among arabs/muslim in the diaspora, i can not avoid the reactionary, emotionally driven nature of those people.

can't they just be purely logical, can't they just be that........but more questions, what makes them that way........although i have to admit westerners r like that as well, probably it just purely human nature, and therefore politics need enlightened , rational people.......but then again, i think i am asking for too much and i am naively idealist, and even i know that about myself, i careless, i will push my idealist agenda...........so what!

Hi Gilgamish,

It is human nature. People need leaders. There don't seem to be any, in the middle east. At least, not the level-headed and responsible kind, anyway.

Now you wonder, what is this discourse, I will save it for later.

Looking forward to it :)

I just saw the replay and I did not know whether to laugh or cry. What a mess, what a mess

programmer:

The leaders are there but how wise are they?. The masses are following those leaders like sheep without even questioning them to the slightest.
