Complaint

If any one did try and match this poem posted earlier, here’s the translated/adapted version:

They talk about Human Rights,

But don’t act to abolish poverty.

They talk about freedom of thought,

But through the media control opinions

They talk about respect

But insult the prophets and the Quran

They talk about democracy

But disagree if we choose Islam

They talk about tolerance

But can’t handle Islamic societies

They talk about gender equality

But have lowered the status of the woman

They talk about peace and security

But support oppressive governments

They talk about justice

But what about Guantanamo Bay?

They talk about problems in the Third World

But never highlight the problems within their own system

They talk about Free Speech

But prevent discussion against the State of Israel

They talk about the rule of law

But arrest people without evidence

They talk about individual freedom

But remain silent at the hijab ban

They talk about honest discussions

But never accept the real cause of terrorism

If I talk about the contradictions

I become an extremist

Hear me, I can continue

My list of complaints is long
