Could it be that just because I happen to be a “foreigner” I am not at moral liberty to complain or point out things I deem unacceptable about my host country?
My fellow Moroccans on this very website feel as though I am somewhat of an ingrate, taking advantage of the financial wealth of this land without being thankful for its opportunities. Some have said that I was biting the hand that fed and others simply don’t understand why I don’t see the “greatness” around me and simply elect to live quietly as I enjoy it all.

If you’ve been listening to folks like Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and others you must certainly have enjoyed the name they have given the ISG; they are of course calling it the Iraq surrender group instead of its rightful name “the Iraq study group”.

For months now we have been hearing President Bush defend his Iraq policies and more alarmingly tout his supposed successes in that country. Said successes he would suggest are the elections that took place without a hiccup and the “heroism” as he put it of the Iraqi people who came out in droves to have their voices heard.
This same President is now refusing to recognize the overwhelming calls of his own people asking for change in his war policy. He is also choosing to ignore the deep meaning of the mid-term election results. This is of course but another case of hypocrisy and double talk, hailing the virtues of one election and dismissing the results of the other?

It occurred to me as I was pondering and questioning everything within my soul concerning my belief systems, that very few of us ever stray away from our creed, religion and the things we were told to identify with and believe in as children.
This line of thought prompted me to ask myself whether these choices were really our own or just things we have been unwittingly brainwashed into adopting.

By AM I certainly do not mean after midnight or morning, I am most definitely referring to your radio dial and the supremacists, fascists that rule the airwaves.
If you have not been listening, I am here to tell you that it is American fundamentalism of the first kind that permeates the air. Your options of stations and talk show hosts are many and the topics very few; it is but a parade of loud speaking, self absorbed, self righteous, overpaid, pompous, arrogant sounding agitators with the sole purpose in mind of deifying America!

You’re not your car, you’re not a star though they may say, your mirror don’t lie
It’s just you and it’s always been, if denial is a river, reality can be harsh and cold ocean
You’re not your castle you’re not your land, you’re not the glitter on your hand
You’re just you, nose seeking the sky but your feet will always be here on the ground

When there’s a child…aching
How thick your walls that you can’t hear?
How dark your windows that you can’t see?
Growth in your size, not in your heart
And you choose to close your eyes

And then one day after much heat and friction
Light hits your eyes and you burst out crying
You are the prince, the man of the hour, the dream of two or three or four
And then one day, out of the castle, no longer in power
You have to answer to another master
Forced into labor, a slave at home and a subject in school

And what about those disheveled people
And what about those unbrushed people
And what about those exhausted people
And what about those invisible people
Those wrinkled and cotton people, don’t they have a flag?
Don’t they have a country since America is home to the greats?

Dear Mrs. Ambassador to the family
For having done it so well, I’ll ask you again
Tell them for me to all go to hell
All wrapped in roses with ribbons and bells
What’s the word for crookery in your kindly tongue?
Say that we might be deaf but not blind or dumb

We do look different but just as bad
Was it painful for you or did it come fast?
Were you scared, did they tell you not to worry?
