The Middle East betrays itself. Before we Arabs can tackle global injustices, we must tackle ourselves. Who among us has betrayed us? Who among us has been blinded? Every nation in the world is plagued with traitors, but how can we distinguish foreign evils from evils within our own society? Everytime we defeat our foreign enemies, they find ways to turn our own against us. This means that the problem lies within our societies, within our cultures, religions, within the minds and souls of our people, which have been dissected, picked, and pulled apart.
The ideological forces that separate Syrians from Syrians, from the Great Syrian cause, of being independent, autonomous, free and sovereign, these forces of religious fanaticism, ego and anger are blinding and ignorant, and they are fueled by our enemies, enemies of moderation, liberalism, secularism, and humility.
Only secular nations should exist, that grant all individuals inalienable rights without give preference to some individuals over others. Israel exists only because its founders believe it has the right to exist as its own state even though in the modern world only nations that are non-religious should exist.
