Yes, yes people I have emerged from my self realised obscurity to bestow knowledge on all headz. Used ta be out and about now strictly lying low dispensing wisdom.
Too much going down to stay quiet, now all of us have to rise up and speak truth to power.

There has to be more to us than dhal roti and Nokia phones...

Death Poem

Take my blood.
Take my death shroud and
The remnants of my body.
Take photographs of my corpse at the grave, lonely.
Send them to the world,
To the judges and
To the people of conscience,
Send them to the principled men and the fair-minded.
And let them bear the guilty burden, before the world,
Of this innocent soul.
Let them bear the burden, before their children and before history,
Of this wasted, sinless soul,
Of this soul which has suffered at the hands of the 'protectors of peace.'

By Jumah al-Dossari

This poem is from The Waste Land: Declassified poetry from
Guantanamo Bay

Read this article in todays Guardian. Made me think of my
travels in Pakistan, family and the power of knowledge and
information. Peeps (hundreds of them) - 'poets, doctors,
housewives and nuclear scientists' literally disappearing
if they express anti-government sentiments. Musharraf
has now arrested the Chief Justice Iftikar Chaudhry as he
was begining to challenge this 'state policy'. America's hand
figures highly in this as since 2001 Pakistan have used the anti-
Qaida drive to remove any dissidents with American backed
technology and networks. Prisoners are being traded with the
US, torture being allowed as 'locally acceptable forms of
interrogation' and their complicity runs deep.

Reading more of some of the poetry that was done by peeps like
Abdul Rahim Muslim Dost, another Pakistani from Baluchistan
who was held captive in Guantanamo Bay for three years. His
poems criticised the Pakistani secret service ISI and lo and behold
after he was released and back in Pakistan he was abducted again.
This is all from a ally of the US in it's 'war on terror'

Jumah al-Dossari... a voice from the darkness unveils the reality of the so called 'protectors of the peace' may his words be heard far and wide, may they burn on the souls of those who let these atrocities happen ... and may the lost souls find there way home
