What you are about to read took place in my living room;I had this conversation with a jordanian from palastenian origin(Thats what she prefer to be called, actually without the the word jordanian)..
Me: Hey did you see that brigget bitch on Fox news the other day?
My friend: Yeah man, what’s up with that!
His wife: yeah she did hit on my nerves..
Me: The killer is that she is lebanese and she wants to deport all muslims out of the US; she is saying that all muslims are terrorists and muhammad PBUH is satan..
My friend: I don’t know man, alla yostor..
Me: But you know what! Sometimes I feel that it is our fault, look at iraq and what is happening there, where ever you hear the world islam you will find killing and terror. I am just sad that we can’t stand up, and even if we do, you will find some “brothers” saying we are infidels..
My friend and his wife : Yeah..
Me: So what’s new?
My friend: not much, but dude jordan is going to be crushed this summer with all the iraqis and tourists from the gulf..
Me : hell yeah, thats jordan, our doors were always open..But you know what ,I think that diversity is good for us, great countries always tend to be diverse and palastenians are not better than iraqis so why not welcome them, but of course we have to demand aid from who caused this mess in the first place and we have to focus on security..
My friends wife: Huh, no. They shouldn’t allow anyone to come in!!
Me in surprise: Wow, I would expect that from anyone but you..
Her: Well thats what I have, when we(she means palastenians) came to jordan it was empty and we built it, but now it is full.
Me : yeah jordanians dropped from mars after the 1967, but anyway jordan is still empty we just need infrastrucure with the help of the international community and we will be good to go.
Her: No, jordan is full of people we shouldn’t accept any more refugees!!
Me :WOW, WOW, WOW, but diversity is good, we will gain alot from it if we maintained our security, those refugees are consumers, workforce and people just looking for shelter. Just look at america which you are now a citizen of, it is diversity that makes it great, and based on what you said I can conclude that you support the deportation of mexicans and “illegal aliens”, right?
Her: yes, of course they shouldn’t be here..
Of course after the last statment I changed the subject and we talked about petra.
What lessons do we learn from this conversation?
Note: My whole idea is to show that we arabs in general only care about ourselves and hell with others, my position is that we should accept refugees only after we get the compensation from who caused their misery, but knowing that 90% of the compensation will be LOST somehow I say “God bless jordan and jordanians for how much they have tolerated over the years”..
