Forget or Forgive in Algeria?
"With an overwhelming ''yes" vote to a peace plan, Algeria officially turned the page on a brutal Islamic insurgency that brought horror to this North African nation and left an estimated 150,000 dead." By Elaine Ganley on Boston Globe.
The Moor next Door is questioning whether he should Forget or Forgive? It is a great blog.
It was interesting for me to know how Arab military regimes are similar. Nouri wrote at the end of his blog that the opposition in Algeria call for boycotting the referendum. That sounds very familiar to me as an Egyptian. ...Same position for Egyptian opposition. The brutality of the Arab regimes built this distrust problem over half a century in most of the Middle East countries.
As the Egyptian regime likes to sell itself or the Islamists only infront of the world, read what Nouri wrote about the Algerian opposition... amazing..." In Algeria, nobody knows the opposition's opinion or even that they exist in some places because they never make their opinions known." Or they are not part of the regime package to be sold to the world in the first place. The regimes' control over media outlets buried different voices that are not part of the regime packages.
