Support the Middle East

The essential message of a TED talk given by Wadah Khanfar, Director General of Al Jazeera, the Arabic-language news network headquartered in Doha, Qatar is,

support the Middle East.

In a very inspiring 14 min. talk, Mr. Khanfar speaks of

values of democracy and freedom of choice sweeping the Middle East.

 and

a new generation, educated, connected, inspired with universal values and global understanding has created a new reality.

We are seeing,

Middle East countries trying to see and discover how could we imagine a future which is magnificent and peaceful and tolerant.

 
At the end of the talk, Khanfar expresses ways for people in the west to help.

Show you care about their transformation.

I, for one, think this is absolutely magnificent. A grandeur/grander vision of life. A movement done by the people for the people. Lovely!

How about you? Can you imagine a peaceful tolerant world? Let’s all try. Right Now.

Visit Al Jazeera and express support and find out what you can do. Kudos to you, Wadah Khanfar. Very inspiring!

    • Oh goody, Kathy! I hope you have a chance to listen to the TED talk. It is really really great! Thank you for reading and commenting. Wishing you a wonderful day!

  1. I don’t have time this morning to listen to the TED talk, but I am already inspired by your blog. YES! Let us support the Middle East and find a way to friendship and peace. My daughter’s boyfriend is from Egypt, even though he’s been brought up in NYC. I am fascinated by the culture he carries with him. Great blog!

    • Kathy, the TED talk is very very inspiring! It is so great to hear people talking like this. It brings tears to my eyes (in a good way). It would be good to see people in the west writing about how supportive we are to the ideas of peace, democratic process, tolerance and non-oppression. It would be even better if people banned in groups with banners and signs and got media coverage to show the east we’re supportive. Thank you for reading and commenting, Kathy.
