Books Introduction

After my last book 52 titled All My MAS Books! www.createspace.com/6306051 and the last book on the series Between Us Only! titled Wipe My Tears! www.createspace.com/4304972 – I became very sick and was admitted in Royal Hospital in Oman from November 2015 to January 2016 when I was operated for Prostate Operation – thankfully malign!

I lapsed into a Coma State in ICU – Intensive Care Unit EER – in December 2015 and was there for more than a month!

Unknown to me at the time, there was a Court case placed against me by One International Home Bank against my defunct Consultancy – Management & Marketing Development Consultancy – MMDC – which had collapsed and gone bankrupt in January 2001 – that is 15 years ago – and still being followed and being traumatized to date!

The TRUTH be told also –

SIMPLY NO ONE had contacted me from the Bank or from anyone else!  For Plus 12 years! 

Today I have LOST MY PERSONAL FREEDOM and Civil Status too – sadly to the Most Committed Loyal True Feeling Sincere Citizen and National. My GMC Yukon they refused to renew The Mulkiya which expired since April 2016.

I am just paying The PDCs and if I do not another issue will arise. This Bank has billions to offer Big Cmpanies but they still go to Retired Omani Pensioners with a vengeance drawing blod from stone! Al Hamdu Lillah!

Oman & The World Please Note!

Nothing has changed much in Oman despite all my writings in my columns and books – the columns that ran for more than 15 years before being targeted and killed off in 2013 – on a technicality – but frankly I think more on their designs policing to subdue people speaking The Truth! The games of The Mafias usually run and led by sadly our Indian friends dominating The Media in Oman – and tragically more by our own Omanis – The Old Guards!

The articles in this book are mainly centred on the above aspects as now being denied the public route through my Oman Daily Observer in my columns Between Us Only! and At My Workplace!

I decided to add this book 53 to my series of books – with due apologies to The Reader that the emphasis and concentration in this book was what was happening to me at the time – and to compile the subjects topics under this book 53 – That Is The way It Is!

When people cannot expect justice because you have No Wastah or with being famous and rich – then writing to your own heart and conscience is the only way left!

Al Hamdu Lillah! Hasbiya Allah Wa Naymat Wa Kyll!

 Prophet Nabii Daud David RA Sura Sad 22 – 26.

  1. We made his kingdom strong and gave him Al-Hikmah (Prophethood, etc.) and sound judgement in speech and decision.21. And has the news of the litigants reached you? When they climbed over the wall into (his) Mihrab (a praying place or a private room,).22. When they entered in upon Dawud (David), he was terrified of them, they said: “Fear not! (We are) two litigants, one of whom has wronged the other, therefore judge between us with truth, and treat us not with injustice, and guide us to the Right Way.23. Verily, this my brother (in religion) has ninety nine ewes, while I have (only) one ewe, and he says: “Hand it over to me, and he overpowered me in speech.”24. [Dawud (David)] said (immediately without listening to the opponent): “He has wronged you in demanding your ewe in addition to his ewes. And, verily, many partners oppress one another, except those who believe and do righteous good deeds, and they are few.” And Dawud (David) guessed that We have tried him and he sought Forgiveness of his Lord, and he fell down prostrate and turned (to Allah) in repentance.25. So We forgave him that, and verily, for him is a near access to Us, and a good place of (final) return (Paradise).26. O Dawud (David)! Verily! We have placed you as a successor on earth, so judge you between men in truth (and justice) and follow not your desire for it will mislead you from the Path of Allah. Verily! Those who wander astray from the Path of Allah (shall) have a severe torment, because they forgot the Day of Reckoning.

    Surah Sad – Nabii Daud RA The Holy Quran

When You Fail To Get Your Haqq Justice & Rights!

When you fail to get your Haqq Rights and Justice on earth surely on The Day of Reckoning in front of Allah SWT God Al Mighty you will get it there where you need it more and where those responsible from Head of Courts Judges Banks Leadership wii be brought forward for Due Punishment – and could start on earh first then punishments in their graves too. Allah Akbar. Allah Kareem! God is Great!

About The Book!

This book 53nd is The Sequel to my earlier 52 books to date!

After my last book, I was admitted in Royal Hospital for a Prostate operation that ended me falling into a coma state in ICU – Intensive Care Unit – EER – for almost a month! See B – The Prophet’s Dream!

The book ontains all the articles and topics that I had posted in My Websites Blogs and The Social Media since the 52nd book.

The book can also stand on its own to describe all my 52 books to date! 6 books on Arab Management, 3 on Road Safety, 6 on My Autobiography (The Story of My Life!) – 12 on my Columns Writings ‘Between Us Only!’ and ‘At My Workplace!’ and the rest on assorted topics!

  • It is hard to beat a person who never gives up! – Babe Ruth
  • Writing is the only profession where no one considers you ridiculous if you make no money! – Jules Renard

The book is a bird’s eye view on all about all my books and from all my varied articles to date! The books produced here are in main part linked to me as Majid aka as Magic – Magic Man as the pseudonym I used in ‘The Forums’! Also interestingly the article – Why Do They Call You Magic? Also Who Is Majid? And My Epitaph! The articles are also about My Family and My Late Parents – Peace Be Upon Them!

I hope you will like reading about me!

People were always asking me – Why don’t you write a book about yourself and all your books as at one stop centre? The story of your life? All about your books! So people can remember you and your works – and as a Memory and Record for all your works to date!

I then decided to accept the challenge and write this book. Like the other books – I have tried to be as factual as possible – and with my usual style of writing of speaking to you directly from my heart – and to be as sincere, genuine, frank, forthright as possible – so that this book can not only be used in Research works – but as a Guide and Beacon for the children, grandchildren, great grandchildren – and future generations by the Grace of Allah God – Ameen Amen.

Prophetic Supplications for Trials

The Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him) said, “The supplication of my brother Dhun Nun (Yunus, peace be upon him), who called on Allah while in the whale’s belly: ‘There is no deity but You. Glory be to You! Verily, I have been among the wrongdoers’ (Quran 21:87) – no Muslim person says it, for any situation whatsoever, except that Allah Most High answers his call.” [Tirmidhi]

 La ilaha illa Anta, Subhanaka, inni kuntu mina z-zalimin.

لا إلهَ إلا أنتَ سُبْحَانَكَ إِنِّي كُنْتُ مِنَ الظّالِمِيْنَ

2- “O Allah! There is no ease except that which You make easy, and indeed You, when You want, make difficulties easy.” [Sahih Ibn Hibban]

Still No Water In Quorum Heights PDO! 1

Dear All and After Compliments;

After people both Citizens Residents Guests etc. Have suffered in silence and pain for the last 2 days the said in charge have still yet not got things right once again … and we still do not have water supply from the Main! 😦

After installing 2 tanks…should we install a third and a fourth now?

I think it was Pervez of Pakistan who said The Citizens do not care about grand projects but just the basic necessities of life like water electricity food housing security etc That means too Tourism Railways Grand Projects if we cannot even get the water situation right!

There is also the saying that if you see an elephant’s shit and you want to copy then great harm will come to your body..! acutely speaking!

PAEW should now fire the said contractors and all the officials involvedbefore we bring Fitnas Harm and Injuries Dhulum to The Citizens – especially already very much tired and pained to the limit…and the same for Ministry of Information because Governmental Newspapers do not hear us but controlled by Foreigners Mafia and culpable  naïve and  timid Locals Managers!

That is why my columns were killed..  because I dared to speak The Truth only!

The Fear of Failing! The Said Article Not Published! 1

The Fear of Failing!

February 11, 2017

I wrote this article 2 years ago! It became like an omen a prophecy of what happened to me later in a space of a year – falling first into a coma state in Royal Hospital whilst I was in ICU this bank and an Omani Court had placed a case against me for my Consultancy that had gone bankrupt bust 15 years ago in 2001!

Nothing has changed much in Oman – and still happening to date!

If The Leadership are real serious – they need to read this article as a start!

Between Us Only!

The Fear of Failing!

Failure is the opportunity to begin again more intelligently! – Henry Ford

Success isn’t about how much money you make, it’s about the difference you make in people’s lives – Michelle Obama

Success is stumbling from failure to failure with no loss of enthusiasm – Winston Churchill

I was talking to my children and The Younger Generation born post 1970s after HM Ascension and trying to convince them that the time was ripe and opportune for them to go into business – as there were great support now for being Self Employed and for SMEs! I reminded them of HE Dr. Sunaidy’s great offerings like being paid within 28 days; the great financial support from RAFD and others; reserved 10% slot for Public Contracts; relaxation of Omanisation for 2 years amongst many others! But yet people are still reluctant to go ‘the route of SMEs’ – and I tried to find out more from them for the reasons why?

One of the major fears and concerns that they have in their young minds is ‘in making it to be successful in their business endeavours’ – and the requirements for them to be fully involved and occupied in their businesses. That is in losing their jobs and confirmed incomes – and in trying something different – and certainly more scary and fearsome! The start and the middle going parts are the more easier ones – but the ending and final parts scare them to pieces! What if I fail? What will happen to me? What will happen to people owing me money? Especially The Banks and The Lenders?

They have seen what can happen to their elders ‘that have failed in businesses’ – even if it was unplanned and as a result of conditions inadvertently beyond their conditions – like bidding for a contract and getting it – but your estimates for the bid turns out by hidden or unexpected turn of events costs to be far much more than you had tendered for or realised in expectations – which has happened many times in reality and as a matter of fact.

There is also this element that ‘people dread to touch getting into SMEs businesses ‘even by a long pole’ is the stereotyping of local companies – even more worse for SMEs! Unfortunately and sadly too by our own Stakeholders and Decision Makers in undercutting and failing to ‘value and recognise’ our own capabilities, potentials, skills and talents!

Also it has been known and to also be practicised even too – that we are very hard and rigid on our own – but can turn ‘the other cheek’ and be more flexible and open to Outsiders – even more to The International ones! Sadly, the same Job Scope and Tasks they can expect (and do receive many times!) to get even 3 or 4 times the amounts that the local companies or SMEs can ever hope to receive! We fail dismally to value and esteem our own more – and this ‘disease’ is what is killing people to venture out into business – the ‘disease of envy, jealousy and polarisation’ even!

But that is not the only scary part! The more scary part ‘is if you finally fail’! All hell is let loose – and even your ‘own personal freedom and movement’ is at risk – in addition to facing so many legal and other issues too! You cannot try to convince people – despite all the talk and rhetoric – because they have seen it still happen to their parents, family and elders! That at the time when ‘you most need help and from The Banks’ – they abandon you one by one!

I have always made this joke about someone with a big tray of meat (chicken, fish) Biriyani with him – yet he wants a small bite and share of you with a small plate of sandwich (samosas) – and he is not ‘happy with you if you deny him the indulgence’ – people who have already made it and rich enough just do not let things go ‘with wandering eyes’ of what more they could have – and if you are disagreeable or not forthcoming to share – they can make things pretty awkward, hard and difficult for you – to start the spiral of going out of control and eventually in making wrong decisions to start losing and in failing! You never know what is out there – and what can happen!

My advice and counsel to The Younger Generations is still to try to go into SMEs and give it your best shot – and do not be scared by failing – because it is a way of learning to do things better in another way. Wishing you all the very best!

Famous Failures – Please Read This!

Jim Carey used to be homeless!

Thomas Edison failed 1000 times before creating the lightbulb!

Stephen King grew so frustrated over his attempt to write the novel “Carrie” that he threw away the entire early draft.

Theodor Seuss Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss, had his first book rejected by 27 different publishers.

U2 band got several Rejection letters as ‘your music not suitable to us at present’ and wishing you all the best!

So were The Beatles – as ‘their music was too loud – and will never catch on!’

Thomas Edison’s teachers told him he was “too stupid to learn anything.”

Oprah Winfrey was fired from her first television job as an anchor in Baltimore, where she said she faced sexism and harassment

Walt Disney was fired by a newspaper editor because he “lacked imagination and had no good ideas.”

Colonel Harland David Sanders was fired from dozens of jobs before founding a successful restaurant.

J.K. Rowling was a single mom living off welfare when she began writing the first “Harry Potter” novel

Vincent Van Gogh sold only one painting, “The Red Vineyard,” in his life, and the sale was just months before his death.

About The Book!

Goodbye; Between Us Only!

 They Will Not Publish This! 

This book is the 10th book in The Series – Between Us Only! And my 20th book so far. 

In order to expedite the book publishing process, minimal images are going to be inserted.

Paramount importance is to get all my articles Post last Between Us Only1 series – Wipe My Tears! The book was published in June 2013 – all intended to put all my books in one place for further references and for record purposes!

I have also included all those articles after end of my columns mainly based on ‘a Technicality’ designed to stop and to end my columns.

I was keeping to myself and trying to avoid conflict – but still people were after me! So I decided to accept the challenge – and write and record this book as the last of my columns writings for future records and references.

No one can kill the spirit, soul and heart of a Writer – because so long as a Writer will live he will not stop writing!

As Jules Renard had said – No one considers a Writer as ridiculous – even if he does not make any money! So there! Besides, I had posted this in all The Social Media – November 13, 2014

Why are we so set against each other? We will support The Foreigner and The Expatriate but not esteem and value our own! We do not have trust and confidence on our own! It is part of this great CURSE Jealousy, Envy and Bad Hearts within us! Bad unfeeling uncaring hearts inside some of us only! Pure evil-like just as is ISIL!

  • It takes only one person to destroy the works that took so many others so many years to build – and we never learn until it is too late!
  • Do Not Cry It Is Over! Be Happy That It Has Happened!

A Personal Message To My Readers! Reply

Message To My Fans & Readers!

Dear All & After Compliments;

Ramadhan Kareem!

Whenever I go out (which is rarely nowadays!) and in social gatherings – I get the same questions – again and again – as to when my articles in Between Us Only! series in The Oman Daily Observer will resume? Or if I had tried the other newspapers like Times of Oman and Muscat Daily? I have – but did not succeed!

I used to write for Muscat Daily a few years ago with the Column Title At My Workplace! After a series of articles – and as I was under the impression of getting payments? – they said NO to me because they thought ‘I was just volunteering for free’! Nobody gives you lunch nowadays for free – so why with my articles!

Frankly I have tried hard with The Oman Daily Observer – but the new people there (The Old Guards and The Mafias Joint Scheme) are dead set against my articles – started with a ‘technicality’ to reduce my column schedule for only one per week! I had two columns – one Between Us Only! on Sundays and At The Workplace! (Offices Related) on Wednesdays. They started by removing the columns headings – so it showed I was writing two columns under one name! I refused to reduce my columns sequences – because we had a valid written enforceable contract – and two sides must agree to any changes! This was sidelined and marginalized – because no one in his right senses and mind can sue a Governmental Newspaper – and expect any favourite results – or inadvertently consequences and repercussions per se!

See what I am saying is this!

First – The East Africans say – If someone wants to insult you – he does not need to choose his words carefully! Because anything will do (go) – because the sole purpose is ‘just to insult you’! There is also the expression that if you are a guest in a house – the host does not need to tell you to go – and you have exceeded your welcome! Body signs and mannerisms would just do the trick for you to get the signals – that it is time for you to go now!

Also the expression – if someone denies you beans (mbaazi) he only reduces your gas (mishuuzi!) – with due apologies. Forget for now – Utakioona kilicho mtoa khanga manyoya! Now you will see how the turkey lost its feathers! Like most metaphors – it means something much bigger than just literal meaning!

Second – there is nothing that I have not covered in my 13 years duration with the said newspapers! Nothing – simply put! Even taboo subjects that most writers are scared to even border – let alone touch!

Third – All my articles are in my books. You can order them directly if you wish! Even the bookshops returned my books – and one is so notorious (expatriate) to even have called me to say – Come and take your books – they are just occupying space – and NOBODY wants to buy them!

This kind of thing can ONLY happen in Oman – because we are docile people – scared stiff of certain groups of expatriates that have come to dominate, control and rule us – that we bend backwards ‘in order just to look nice and sound pleasant’! – and we all compete for places to sound nice and good to them.

Mind you the majority of the expatriates are good decent nice people – who appreciate and respect the welcome and reception given to them as ‘invited guests’ in our country! But there are a few misguided and supported by some forces internally that think and act otherwise – and these are the people that do most harm and damages – and that includes stopping their few who dare to speak shut up – so we can still control and dominate them for longer still!

Allah God Help and Protect Preserve us all – Ameen Amen!

Fourth – You can still order my books directly as here below:-

Fifth – Let me rest now! I am tired banging my head against brick walls – and making it red and bruised only! Besides, I am dead tired – and have learnt to let go of all the Excess Baggage I have been carrying for so long – and the losers is only my family and I!

I have learnt to accept my fate – and whatever will come – let it come now!

I have been known to have said so many times in the past – I told you so! But you did not listen to me! I can still say that once again – if needed to be said!

The Romans have said – Those that the gods want to destroy – they make them not see, hear or speak! Or us Arabs – There is no one so blind but with eyes – but cannot see! So deaf but with ears – but cannot hear! And so dumb – but with a mouth – but cannot speak!

A good friend (British) once advised cautioned me – if you were in Saddam Team – you would have ended shot – as the first ones too!

Let me rest now. I am now 65 – with different priorities – and the paramount now is my family – my children and grandchildren!

Please forgive me and with my due sincere and genuine apologies!

Take Care!

Ramadhan Kareem!

Best Wishes and Regards,

Majid Al Suleimany

The Need To Be Really Serious!

On 7th June 2014 by Allah God Blessing I became 65 years old! Allah God Is Merciful! Allah Is Compassionate! Ameen Amen

A very good Indian friend of mine called me to wish me birthday greetings and to talk about the advertisement I had put in the newspapers as below –

Omani HR Management Consultant Expert Advisor UK educated and trained retired PDO 25 years experiences all aspects HR Training Development Omanisation etc. looking for temporary job 8 to 1 pm or Project work majid@majidsuleimany.com

Typically, he asked me if anyone from his company had contacted me – because being in Management – he knew that they were looking for a full time experienced HR Professional (Omani) but have still not found one that was meeting their requirements and expectations! He wondered aloud with me as ‘to why they did not grab this opportunity’ being thrown at them? I said I would not do – but he should know better as he was working for the Company – and he was in Management himself!

Frankly, I have received some offers that included:-

  • Selling Life and Insurance policies.
  • Logistics (Temporary job) related.
  • Sort of Senior PRO job (Temporary) – You have driving license Omani?
  • Customs Clearances job!
  • Other jobs not related to Human Resources
  • Petty offers for real HR jobs that they will not even pay lower end Visiting Consultants and Experts – but can be offered to Omanis – by fellow Top Omanis Owners, Managers – and also Expatriate ones too!

Nothing has changed much on the ground – and the mindsets have remained unmovable and unchanged – despite changes all around them – and all the rhetoric and façade of pushing Human Resources, Training and Development, Omani Recruitment and in Omanisation aspects!

As a LinkedIn member, I get so many requests from young Omanis for connections – ‘Looking For A Job’! My heart breaks out and burns when I look at their profiles and I find that many are educated and qualified – but lack work experiences! Still yet no one has come forward to offer them a break or an opportunity! I know of certainty of my niece educated and trained in Oman in a Omani College with Omani Credentials and Qualifications in Human Resources – two years down the line – with No Job Offer – despite HR being the rage – and most talked after subject – even before SMEs and Self Employment per se!

Many of them have had their families educate and train them – or now have to pay back Educational Assistance loans that they have taken from the Banks – which places a heavy burden on their families – causing rifts and strife at home – even bordering domestic violence syndromes! Some have lived very difficult and hard lives – in order to survive in teaching and educating their children! Some have even sold their villas and extra cars in order to improvise and survive – with no let out or light at the end of the tunnel! With family strife – and breaking up of the families – and their youngsters jobless wandering off ‘to lost give up ways’ – bad company, drugs and violence trends!

Every day I look at the newspapers – and find adverts from ‘Visiting Oman’ Applicants looking for a job – many of them highly qualified and experienced – and who are ready to accept far low packages offer ‘if they work at home’ – or not formally linked to the employing companies!

The bitter truth is that many of the General Managers and CEOs are Expatriate controlled – and even the few ones by locals are by The Old Guards that prefer ‘no rocking of the boat’ – and want expatriates under them so they can ‘control them’. Similarly the Expatriate ones want meek docile not strong characters Omanis under them – more as a window shopping exercise – and for façade, showoff and rhetoric mainly!

That is why they prefer to promote ex HES, PRO and Admin Clerks as HR Managers – so they can do their bidding – and can agree to be controlled – both by The Expatriate Mafia = and The Weak distrusting Old Guards – that simply do not value our own – and like I always say in my writings – like that General that ‘shoots at his own troops’ or ‘friendly fire’ in military terms! Forget about ‘collateral damage’ for a change!

How long can these things go on before the cinder fire burning heatedly deep inside explodes?

Yet we see all around the havoc and destructions live on Television – from neighbouring countries to far – some brewing internally – and some already on the surface – starting from a minor thing like 20 students graffiti to ‘destruction of the whole country’ – to farcial elections of new leaderships in failing environments – with more to come still?

Like the Arabs say too – No one is deaf but with ears but cannot hear – blind with eyes but cannot see – and with a mouth but cannot speak! Or allow others to speak! Or as The Romans say – Those that the gods want to destroy – they make them not hear, see or speak!

If things can be done to Senior Qualified Experienced Omanis – even in High Places – that should know better – and lead by examples – away from repeating things in rhetoric and façade – acts and pretenses – like in Animal Farm by George Orwell – the Fundamental and Big Question to ask here is –

How can the Young Omani fare in The Private Sector with everything working against him all around!

You be The Judge – and You Answer The Question!

No wonder they wanted to Kill off my columns as soon as they could!.

This is My Last Call! I am really – really – really tired banging my head against brick walls – and making it swollen and red only – and The Real Loser – again and again – is me personally and my direct family only!

We Need to Be Really Serious – before it is too late for everyone – and we lost that thing that we dearly loved and valued – by not preserving it – letting it grow and prosper – by our selfishness, bad hearts and intentions – by polarization – and failing to  –  

Stand as One! Under One Flag – One Nation – One HM! 

Destroying all his Great Works – and failing to appreciate and value his personal sacrifices – that has made us today hold our heads high with dignity, respect and esteem! 

May Allah God Direct us all to The Straight Path and Way – Ameen Amen 

I did not put any pictures – because ALL THESE THINGS I HAVE SAID BEFORE! 

THIS IS MY LAST CALL! 

Take Care!

Rewind! Need For A National Service Force!

http://www.muscatdaily.com/Archive/Gcc/UAE-brings-in-military-service-37l4

 7th November, 2007

Need For A National Service Force! 

I am watching this Television News coverage of a father in Turkey who is very proud of his son who is by his side and who is curtailing his further studies in University in order to join the Turkish Army to fight for his homeland with the perceived threat from The PKK – The Kurdish Workers Fighters – who are demanding for a separate home land or more autonomy; depending on your point of view. The Reporter makes a statement that the Turkish youngsters are all interested to join the Eastern flank where there are frontline activities with the PKK, rather than the Northern flank where there is no activity of any kind.

Apart from the sad and tragic fact that a supposedly majority Islamic army (be it secular in outlook and focus per se) is fighting a supposedly rebellious Islamic fighter force (something that seems to be now regular in other countries too), what else gives? Nothing new or strange here. We do not know what will happen next if Turkey will go ahead and attack North Iraq (Kurdistan), but we sure know now that Pakistan has declared a State of Emergency!

If you look at the Israeli Army, a population of less than 4 million peoples is able to put at bay larger Army population of several Arab countries. Forgetting for a moment that they are fully backed by The Western World, and even discreetly by even countries like Russia and The ex Eastern block countries (and some other countries of The rest of the world too for that matter); it raises a paramount fundamental question of how and why this is possible. Forgetting also the valid pertinent point that when you fight to defend your homeland, than the person who is attacking or maybe perceived to be attacking you for that matter.

If you look at our young Arab youth, and is not fair to assume, generalize and stereo type – but you will find that they are looking for quick gains, results and achievements at the shortest of time available and at minimum exertion, efforts and input too. Send some graduate for a professional course and he comes back saying he is now experienced and needs more power, authority and promotion.

I have interviewed in my career time graduates in some places, and they are all interested in what perks and facilities that they will get, instead of what inputs, efforts and drive they will have to put in before they can be respected, recognised and to be acknowledged. I am talking here generally – let me make myself very crystal clear. Youth are youth – I fully agree – whether Arab or Jewish! No dispute here. And true as human beings we tend to criticize and analyse more those we know better than those we do not know. The maxim ‘Familiarity breeds contempt’ did not just come out from the blue!

For all fits and purposes, the young Jewish graduates may not be any different from the Arab one per se! No one amongst us can know or tell. But how many Arab youths have you seen that would volunteer to join a regular Arab Army and go and fight and die for a national cause? Forget for a moment the suicide bombers, who have been twisted their frames of minds and thoughts to kill, maim and murder innocent victims like children queuing up for chocolates and sweets, even if those sweets are from the ‘enemy’?. Or people looking for a job to feed their families are blown up into pieces. Or trying to sell or buy items in the market, or board a bus for whatever reason.

These are wasted and destroyed resources that could have been used and been utilized better, than such wastages, destruction and uselessness. The enemy is not your own brother or sister, even if he or she acts different from you or believes slightly different from you. There is a bigger cause and fight to be made, and not in this way. The enemy is the person who has invaded and occupied your country, not the one who is just hapless and innocent impotent person like that you are, though you have twisted minds and frames not to realize this. You are killing and wiping off the very same person who is against like you are, or striving to live and be as best as he can.

I have studied hard on my own the incidents of the 6 day war in 1967. I studied hard the one in 1973. I studied hard the invasion of Kuwait by Saddam Hussein. And I studied hard the invasion of Iraq by flimsy excuse and reasons of WMD – which up to day are missing. What should wake us all up is the fight and resistance put up by the Lebanese Hezbollah youth in the South against a regular Army force – the most powerful and most feared power force in The Middle East today – The Israeli army!

Let us forget for a minute whether we support or not their philosophies or outlook. They and Hamas and the Iranian youth. Like them or hate them, it does not matter. Even for them for that matter. They too have not forgotten the expression of ‘finish off the job’ to bring them down under control, ridicule, ruin and or reduce their areas of influence and control. Not all the things they did could be supported or cordoned, like sending off missiles blindly and inadvertently and unfortunately killing off and maiming Arab residents, be that they are Israeli Arabs or not.

What am I talking about here? I am talking about the readiness and willingness of Arab youth to be ready and fight for their countries, whether under direct threat or perceived threat. Look at Iran being under threat from powerful nuclear powers, but are not scared or afraid. You may like to call it obstinacy or whatever else. Like my late grandfather used to say – the child cries for a blade or a match box, do not deny him. He will cut or burn himself, which is the way they will learn!

Did we learn before in 1967? In 1973? Even lately cases like Kuwait invasion? Like Iraq invasion? No, we still are defiant and obstinate. We still use threats and defiant languages. We will stand our grounds, stay and fight – we say loud and clear. Necessity is the mother of invention, as the Kuwaiti youths found out to defend their homeland from Saddam army.

Let us try to learn from the enemy. What is it that they are doing that makes them fight, stand their grounds and gets them protected and preserved? It is the National Service that they have. All youth and of graduates and higher education joining the regular army for some years. They get trained and fight alongside the regular army. They become disciplined, cultured and matured by such training. And they become a recognizable and acknowledged force that can tackle almost everything on their own.

When they finish their compulsory military training, they return to civilian lives, but at a press of button can resort back to a reserved recognizable and acknowledged fighting force, to be respected and even feared too. Some of the Arab countries have such National Services. But I do not know I have to admit how it works. I know of a fact only that some Arab students I studied with in UK failed their examinations purposely and willingly – because they did not want to return home to join their National Service, and leave behind their British girlfriends and the UK way of life!

There are some counties in Africa who had copied the Israeli model. They join the regular army for 9 months, and go to work in civilian lives but still wearing the National Service uniforms for 2 years. Then they go for a pass out parade for one month, and become reserve forces. Some may even like the Army life, and look for a future in The Armed Forces or The Police. One sure way to reduce unemployment, and get more highly educated and trained youth in the military forces!

We can start the whole process by a Volunteer force, but we may need to encourage more to come by making it more attractive and enticing to join. When our enemies realize that we have youth in the populace that are disciplined, trained and ready to fight and die for the motherland, they will think twice if not thrice before trying to take advantage of us! It will no doubt instill respect, esteem, culture and values of society if the military training will include these subjects in the curriculum.

All the training must be accompanied with the right religious, social and national indoctrination in order to make the youth be away from wrong mind concepts and being hijacked and controlled wrongly in thoughts and mind by miscreants and ‘lost peoples’.. The National Service should include the women too, who can have their own forces separate from men, in line with our values, culture, heritage and customs.

An idea to seriously think about and consider, I should think?? 

Thoughts and views most welcome! 

N.B. The article was written on November 7th 2007 and was rejected by the newspaper – The Oman Daily Observer – as too ‘political cum radical’! 

Today UAE, Qatar and Kuwait are planning for A National Service for its citizens!
