Well, i guess it looks like old news: is down... i don't know what is going on this time, it happened last night. Fact is we had just put online 'A war in words' the documentary for a part filmed by Khalid, broadcast last March by CBC (Canada).

#7/21/2005 03:19:00 pm Assalam Aleikom Blogger cile is up again: well, how do we do it!

I won't sign this one
We the undersigned demand that the security forces that have detained Khalid Jarrar immediatly release him, and that a full scale investigation be conducted into how it came to pass that an individual can be held captive for the sole reasoning of expressing their views. It behooves us as American citizens whose troops are occupying Iraq to demand that Iraq be adminstered in a fashion that protects individual rights.

I would have been amoung the first to sign this one
We the undersigned demand public disclosure of the information leading to the arrest and detainment of Khalid Jarrar. We demand that Khalid Jarrar be granted the inalienable rights to justice that all men deserve - that there shall be no search, seizure, or imprisonment without due process of law. We demand that Khalid Jarrar shall either be publicly charged with a crime or released. We demand that Khalid Jarrar receives open and fair treatment according to the rules of law. We demand fairness and we will not fall silent until we are satisfied that evidence, justice, and the rule of law have triumphed.

If you decide to start a second round of petitioning, please let me know.

Moron99, if i were you and would have come up with such a good text and idea: just make it work, and realize it! ;))

I stand not for Khalid but for justice. It is up to Khalid's family and friends to decide if it serves them. My words are just fleeting punches at a keyboard. If they serve you, then take them in the same maaner that you would when picking up a coin on the street.

Remembering of course, that all coins have two sides.

May I ask you a question, moron99. If you were arrested for your comments and we all paid no attention at all, how would you feel?

If you demanded my release without honoring the rule of law, then I would refuse your help. Two wrongs don't make a right.

When I was a youth, I got a traffic ticket that I did not deserve. At a politcal gathering a senator asked to see the ticket. He put it into his pocket and did not give it back. The entire event disappeared from existence. Many years later, I still feel guilty for allowing the senator to do this. Upon another occassion, I went before the judge and spoke truthfully about my guilt. His punishment was fair and just. The senator's, despite my innocence, was a travesty.

For a start, moron99, a "release" of a certain prisoner is not being demanded in any overt way. This blog, is a puddle on the web, if that. A small spot that a certain arrested blogger once posted to (who I suspect you abused regularly at the time, you charlatan, should be ashamed of yourself). That certain arrested blogger made a huge impact on many many people in many small ways, and some of us are simply putting stuff up for him to read for when he gets out, and trying to make "light" of blogger's spirits. Which is the blogger way, by the way, to cheer each other during trying times. As well as be able to discuss things without taking offense all the time. So you see, moron99, it all boils back down to you perhaps not fully understanding what friends will be willing to do for other friends. You can try and usurp it as much as you like, but that still doesn't mean you've looked into your own heart. If you have one.

ps, you have another question to answer.
