In few days the American voters, White, Black, Hispanic, Christians, Muslims, Jews and Hindus among others will elect “inshallah/God wiling) Barack Obama as president of the
The election of Barack Obama will also bring an end to the “Right Nation” as envisioned by the Christian Evangelicals and Jewish Zionists NeoCons who and for over 30 years have been working very hard in creating an America in their own image and vision. An America without heart and soul, but a self serving narrow minded racists and inhuman attitudes, soulless virtues and values that are if any thing but “un-Christian and un-Judaic) and arrogant vision of the world culminating in the criminal and reckless War on Iraq and the worst financial meltdown in the history of the United States and the world.
The election of Barack Obama will be an indictment of the policies of a failed Bush-Cheney administrating driven by Evangelical Christians and Jewish Zionists Neo-Cons the likes of Wolfowitz, Feith, Perle among others whose vision of the United States in the 21st Century of pre-emptive military strikes and unilateral decisions as if there are no other countries in the world other than the United States and of course Israel. Their stupid reckless arrogance got us in this mess at home and abroad and now they have nothing but eggs and dirt on their face. Bush for sure will go down in history as the worst president ever and his legacy will be nothing but total disaster and failures in all fronts.
The American public as I have known for the last 46 years of living in the United States and having known closely through employment in a variety of jobs, through military service( US Army), and through education are perhaps the most decent and honorable people in the world. They are decent with full meaning of the word. People and nation that are caring of others at home and abroad, welcoming strangers among them, making one feel at home, giving opportunity and mentorship, coming to the aid of neighbors. This is the
I am very proud to have lived in the United States for these many years and always very grateful to the many people who mentored me and were always supportive of me and helped while student at Horace Mann High School, among those who I will always cherish with great and fond memory are Mrs. Goldman, my special English teacher, Mrs. Moony my drama teacher. Special fondness and great appreciation of the great people and educators at Indiana University especially the honorable president John Ryan, dean Chuck Bonser, dean Roy Jumper, dean Jack Hopkins, professor Mark Reskin among the many great people who had great influence on me. I am always grateful for the many support I had while a soldier in the United States Army especially at the 6th Army NCO Academy where a 21 year skinny Palestinian immigrant with an accent can compete and win the leadership award against a native born American who was the perfect recruiting posters for the US Army. I will always remember Peter The Greek, the Greek American who gave me my first job of cleaning toilets at his restaurant then moving me up to cleaning dishes and pealing potatoes and to the late Ed Burns, the Irish American who gave me a job at his funeral home when many companies in Gary, Indiana did not care to give job and employment for a recently honorable discharged army veteran.
There are so many, people who have shown great interests in helping me and advising me and being there for me, and I want to mention with particular appreciation, Michael Forestall and Gordon Elicker of the Wall Street firm of Shearman & Sterling for giving me the opportunity to join such a prestigious law firm. Yes, the American people are not only decent people they are honorable people.
I am sure president Barack Obama will make a big difference for
