I’ve been living in the MENA region for my entire life, I come from a society that faced terrorism bravely and combatted fearlessly those who wanted to kill enlightened people, to bear clever intellectuals and those courageous activists who don’t want an extremist religious state, to put a bullet in the heads of those free minds who refuse to be controlled. When someone talks to me today about extremism and fundamentalism in the world, I perfectly understand what they mean, my...

It’s always up to the people to change their country’s situation, it’s always up to these generations to make the change they want to see. That’s what Lebanese young people have understood, that’s what this new generation here in Lebanon has in mind. As an activist for human rights, and since I am here in Lebanon right now; I went to the protest that took place near Nejmeh square yesterday. I went to see how things go, and I was impressed by the consciousness, which I wil...

Yesterday, the Algerian government authorized a terrorist and gave him the permission to start his own political party. At the same time, hundreds of Algerian activist, secular thinkers were arrested during the last few months. I know many of you will not get this, many of you would ask for the reason. Well, it’s simple: officially –in the speeches-, the Algerian political system fights terrorism, and engages in a war against all those awful movements since the beginning of the...

Hello everyone! I hope my article will find you very well, enjoying your life, doing well in your studies. It has been a while, indeed; but I didn’t forget this amazing platform which has become just like a second family to me! I didn’t write anything for a while now, I know there is no excuse for being absent; actually, leaving a family even for a few months has no excuses at all! Sorry, I’m not going to bother you by telling how busy I was, because simply one can never be t...

In the previous post, we talked a little about freedom of women in a patriarchal society and I find it essential to ask the question: how does the situation of women look like in the region of MENA? Women in my country –Algeria-, and in my region, are oppressed and most of the times for religious reasons; I’m sorry, I have nothing, absolutely nothing, against religions but I do have a lot of things to say about religious-men, especially those who call themselves “pious”...

I talked last time about honor killings in the region of MENA; it’s a critical problem that no one can deny! I had some thoughts about the issue and I tried to share them, I hope I’ve done well. Well, generally when we speak about honor killings, we speak about “freedom” and “individual liberties” because it’s all related. There are no doubts that the situation of “freedom” in the region of MENA is not good at all, we still didn’t get the fact that personal...


Thank you 2014!

It’s really amazing how we develop over the years, how we learn, how we succeed and how we fail sometimes. This life is a long journey, it’s kind of a race if I may say, and we must always ask the famous question: what makes us special? And when we find the answer; we’ll find out that we became successful! For me, the past year was the best! Even though I was having good grades over the past years, and even if I’m living in a lovely small family, but 2014 was indeed the b...

In order to continue our topic (honor killings), I chose to write about the solutions this time. People might ask me the famous question, how can we stop these homicides (honor killings)? Well, it’s pretty easy, before all, we must make the new generations understand and apply and follow the following principal “each one is free to do whatever he likes as long as he respects the laws and doesn’t harm others”, I know I’ve repeated this principal so many times but believe...

In the previous post, we talked about freedom in the MENA region and why it’s important to accept it in order to develop. Among the violations of human rights that we see in our communities, there is this awful crime that we call “honor killing”, it’s generally when a male family member kills a female family member for having a relationship, specially a sexual one with someone who is not her husband, or for being homosexual and things like that… well, let me say this: i...
