The Principles of The National Dialogue in Libya

Tripoli Airport

Once I meet with my friends these days, all we talk about is the current situation. Every one picks a side. We talk for hours without convincing each other. The point is we have different views, but we share one thing. We have the common goals which are building and developing Libya. In the reality, the different parties have taken the weapons as the way of talking. When two Libyans are fighting, that means a civil war.

Civil wars last for years and  usually finish with national dialogue. People of the one nationality usually do not notice they are in a civil war. They will realize it after killing many people and destroying their country. A civil war ends with national dialog or peace talk. For example, Lebanon had a civil war for 16 years. Eventually, they reached a settlement. So, they eventually sit together. Some countries did that too late.  Do not do what Sudan did. The delay of national dialogue could divide Libya into three parts.We should perform now. People start splitting up into groups. I support that party and I against you.

Libya now faces a conflict among more than three parties. Libyan Dawn Operation is basically combination of Misrata Militias and some Tripoli, Zleten, Tajura, and Nalot militias. Libyan Dawn Operation represents the moderate islamic parties (Political Islam). Brotherhood is the most famous organization in political islam party. The other party is the Liberal, as the political Islam call it. General Hafter’s army (Dignity Operation) and the House of Representatives are the most famous members in the side. There’s a third party, which is the extremisms. They don’t believe in democracy. 

This map shows the Libyan conflict

Libya Conflict Map 2014

To demonstrate what happen when the people of these parties start debating, let’s take the usual dialog among Libyans in these days:

Operation Libyan Dawn Pros:

Swaeq and Qaqa (Pro Hifter) are not enrolled in the Ministry of Defense

Dignity Pros:

Misrata Militias are not acutely enrolled in Libyan National Army

Operation Libyan Dawn Pros:

Hafter uses the HoR to establish important decisions.

Dignity Pros:

Militias were used by GNC to establish important decisions

Operation Libyan Dawn Pros:

Dignity Pros:

Operation Libyan Dawn Pros:

Dignity Pros:

The national army with police are the only ones who protect Libya

Operation Libyan Dawn Pros:

Revolutionizers are the only legitimate body who fought against Gaddafi

Dignity Pros:

Operation Libyan Dawn Pros:

Dignity Pros:

Operation Libyan Dawn Pros:

The 17th Revolution is still active and not finished yet

Dignity Pros:

The 17th revolution is no longer active. We should starting building Libya

Operation Libyan Dawn Pros:

The HoR asked for western intervention. They are betrayers    

Dignity Pros:

The HoR asked for stopping fighting and dissolving militias

Operation Libyan Dawn Pros:

HoR is being controlled from outside

Dignity Pros:

GNC and militias are being controlled from outsider

Operation Libyan Dawn Pros:

Revolutionizers must build the new political regime of Libya

Dignity Pros:

Libyans should participate creating the new democratic Libya

Operation Libyan Dawn Pros:

UAE is behind the HoR support

Dignity Pros:

Qatar is behind the GNC support

Operation Libyan Dawn Pros:

Mahmoud Jebril is a duble agent to UAE and Egypt

Dignity Pros:

Salabi  is a duble agent to Qatar

Not the military action in Libya would change the current situation and solve all this debate. Only the national dialogue among all parties. Not the political decision only by House of Representatives could dissolve to current crisis. Only the national dialogue. Not the western intervention could solve the conflict. Only the national dialogue. However, when we talk about the national dialog, we should understand and consider some basic principals:

Every party has to start the dialog or peace talk with 50% chance they will be wrong. Do not assume that one of them are 100% rightful.

Every party should be willing for giving up some of their privileges. To reach the peaceful with your opponents, you should waive some of your rights to their rights.

Every party has to start the dialog with chance of other party will be your partner. It is not good making enemies.

Every party should keep calm whatever happen. They should make sure all their members keep calm during the dialog. Keeping relaxing will reflect on your opponents.  It is important to show the respect to  each others.

One of the Libyan traits is stubbornness. Do not be stubborn. Instead, be flexible and open to other’s opinion.

The national dialog should be not biased to one party against the other. Should be standing in the middle between all other parties.

And these some questions from Civil Society Dialogue Network we need to consider before starting the national dialog:

Q1: How large should national dialogues be?

Q2: How wide should the inclusion net be cast?

Q3: What constituencies need to be included?

Q4: How should their representatives be selected?

Q5: What is their relationship to existing institutions (HoR and Gov)

Q6: What are their decision-making powers?

These question should be answered through negotiations among the key political parties in Libya.

We have to sit down together, and ask ourselves what the common thing that we have. The answer should be Libya or caring about Libya. This is the starting point, and It could be the 1%. The 99% things could come along by just peace talk. Israel and Hamas reaches the cease fire by just talking. Why not ? 

Yes, We Need ِAn Intervention To Help Libya.

 

intervention

 

Do you think this topic is to debate whether the UN should intervene in Libya or not. This topic focuses on the intervention in Libya not militarily, but culturally and ethically.

Anyone lives in Libya could observe the ignorance among Libyans. They lost their identity as an educated people “I don’t think I have ever seen a Libyan in Libya sitting and reading a book for pleasure” as Ann Marlowe describes her feeling after visiting Libya in 2011 . Instead, Libyan people keep neglecting the fact that improving any country requires discipline in anything we do.

Who we should blame? Gaddafi!! or ourselves. If we keep blaming the 42 years ago plus the last 4 years, we will never make any progress. As I always say that what happens in Libya now, it’s the result of the sum of laziness, irresponsibility, and ignorance together by Libyan people.

WAKE UP !! before we lose Libya.

Yes, we need an intervention. An intervention of waking us up.

“Often an intervention is an effective way to persuade loved ones to take the first step toward recovery”. This is what people do in western counties.

We need an intervention in Libya to change our perspective to the modern society.

We need an intervention to make us active and care about our work.

We need an intervention to implant in ourselves the word responsibility. Everyone should do his/her work perfectly.

Ann Marlowe says that it’s not the USA to be blamed for the chaos in Libya, Libyans should be blamed in her report.

“Libya could be a wonderful example to the world, of Muslims who threw off their oppressive government and set out to govern themselves democratically and to create a vibrant and open society. But for that, they would have to have a different culture than the one they’ve inherited” Ann Marlowe says.

 

It’s not coincidence that we have all these problems right now. The big issue relays on us. The absence of the modern culture for 42 years has effected the life in Libya.  Libyans treat their government as just an open bank for them. They totally depend on the oil. Many people work for the government. They receive the full salary, and should be working the full time that they got paid for it. However, they work only half the time they should be. And If they set and work, they wouldn’t do their job perfectly. To be clear, not everyone, but the majority does that. It becomes the Libyan culture of working at the government.

“Americans come from many backgrounds, but one thing most of us share is a work ethic. Libyans do not” Ann Marlowe says.

As I mention before, many countries used  foreigner managers to manage their life , such as UAE. It’s an intervention, not militarily, but ethically.I totally agree with  this type of  intervention, because I’m sure Libyans alone, this generation and the next, will not be able to build a modern society where everyone can take responsibility. The government should replace all Libyans who work in the government with other people by any nationality to work. Yes, it’s investment in the human resource. We will learn how to control our life according to the international standards.

 

Humanize Palestine

Humanize Palestine

In Benghazi, we watch the war between Libyans. One Libyan stay at home everyday listens to the Bombs fall by other Libyans. This is how we live our days lately.   

Despite the war in Libya, Benghazi and Tripoli, Libyan people still support the Palestine people, especially in this attack from Israel on Gaza. Our war have given us a fraction of frighting life that Palestine people have been living for decades. 

In support them, these are human people, like every human lives in this world. 

Please share and support Humanize Palestine. 

ABOUT HUMANIZE PALESTINE

Humanize Palestine attempts to restore the humanity that is often stripped away when Palestinians are reduced to calculative deaths, forgettable names, and burned and mutilated bodies, rather than people who shared loved ones, stories, dreams and aspirations.

2 Ways To Add and Find Your Favorite Places Online

Wikifoure

Last January, I talked about establishing your business online on Google Places.  Once people search for a specific business category, they will find a complete list of all businesses and their information. Related: Google Places: Few Steps to Publish your Business Online. It Works Perfect in Benghazi 

But if you want to find, let’s say, a mosque in Benghazi, you won’t find it online unless you ask one of your friends. To find this mosque online and its location on a map, someone has to add this information to any map online.
There are many ways that people can add places on a map online. Google places one of them. This two ways are easier and more informative than any thing else:

1- Using Wikimapia.org 

This website uses the idea of people can add their places. This is the easiest things I found online to add some places. The benefit from this website is people add informal places that no one think to add. It’s not official website that you get official places, but people who are the responsible for these places. The power of people is translated on this map. Go and check it. Try to write any mosque’s name and you will find it easily. Go to wikimapia and add your own places such as your home or your business. As much as people add places, the website will increase its credibility to becomes an important resource.

2- Using Foursquare App

Have you ever checked In using Facebook. Usually people like prove that they are in a specific and spacial place. They share that with other people. What if you find some good information on this place. This is exactly what Foursquare dose.
Foursqaure helps you to check in and gives you some information and people’s review on this place. Foursqaure is an app on your phone and it uses your GPS to locate your location. And then gives you informative review by people, such as best restaurant close to your location. It’s fun, playful, and informative. You can also access to Foursqaure.com  and check some places.

Foursquare

This app uses the power of people, because people who are responsible on adding these places. I use this app daily. I add as many places and review them as much to help other people finding the right information.
People should take advantages of this technology. They can adopt the new way of accessing data and information among this insanely increased technology.

5 Ways We Can Improve Our Mosques (تطوير المساجد)

5 WAYS THAT WILL MAKE CHANGES

Muslims Pary

It’s the time that we should talk about the religion places in Libya, Mosques.
Usually we don’t criticize the religion places in Libya, as they are perfect as they are!! However, we should mention or recommend some changes to improve the experience of Muslims inside masjds in new era of technology and perfection.
To develop mosques in Libya, we need to add some things to the current situation. Let’s gather some points that will improve how we react and perceive our feeling toward our mosques.

1-HAVING A WEBSITE

Any mosques should have a website. This is something new in Libya. So, why having a website is helpful. Usually every Neighborhood in Benghazi has at least one mosque. Therefore, it acts as a community center. People who are in charge of the mosque can gather the contact information of their community. Then they can forward and send important news and events through their website. In addition, People can check the prayer time and islamic events on the website.
We should take advantage of the technology that we have today. The Emam gives the Khotbha every friday prayer. The Khotbha (an Islamic Lecture) requires time to be prepared. It’s important to be documented for the future. Thus, recording the Khotbha using a video camera and uploading it to YouTube is the best way to improve the Khotbha. Everyone who enjoys the Khotbha can go back to the mosque’s website and watch it again.
In addition to all that, the website could have Emam’s contact information and other addition important things such as a donation page.

This is an example of a mosque’s website.

2-INSTALLING TV SCREENS

There are many places inside mosques that preyers can’t see the Emam. It’s knowing for good engaging with the Emam is through watching and listening at the same time. Places such as women’s prayer rooms are blocked from the main prayer place. As long as we use the technology, we can install a TV and a camera to record and stream the Khotbha live on TVs in side the isolated places.

3-PROVIDING ENOUGH SPACES FOR SHOES

The problem always is the piles of shoes in front of the mosques. You Finnish your pray and prepare to leave the masjed, then you have to fight to get your shoes. The problem is basically consists of two things. The first is there’s no enough storages to store your shoes. The second thing comes from people who miss order and store their shoes. They just through them on the ground and just get inside to pray. To solve that, we could provide enough space of storage to keep our shoes.

4- NEW LAYOUT

More than 90% of mosques design is one large prayer space connected directly to the streets.With this layout, we will not have enough space to install the shoes storages. In addition, there’s no a transition space from the street to the mosque. It’s like a hotel without a lobby. Therefore, we should include an open hall (lobby) as a transition space. Then, we could install a good number of shoes storages in this lobby. We can use this space for many things, such as advertisement for the next events and gathering donations. So, architects should include this space in their upcoming new design.

No Lobby

With Lobby

5-CREATING PATHWAYS

Usually after finishing the pray, some people start leaving, and other just staying a little bit longer. Because we pray on the ground in raws, people start crossing other people who still seated. This way creates a chaos inside mosques.However, if we take the concept of theaters with the idea of aisles, we can create a smoother movements. Instead seating on the side walls, we leave them empty to be used as a clear pathway. So imagine if everyone start to leave take this path!!

Peryer Seats-02

Peryer Seats-01

So, these are a quick points that I observed and decided to write about them here. I’ll keep updating this topic every time I find new things need to be added.

Marketing_Chain_Reaction

Chain Reaction Effect on Libyan People

Chain Reaction effect

Watch this video first, then keep reading!!

This is what Chain Reaction looks like. Now, imagine if the wooden sticks were the people, and the fire was either good thing or bad thing. People live in clusters. They like living close to each other. They, simply, prefer to live in society.

I have written about the habit among Libyans in one of my topics. If we want to change the Libyan habit, we should change the individuals to change the society .

Social Change

People tend to follow each other. If there’s a new fashion, It’s only a fashion if a certain number of people decided to make it fashionable. We like something only because we like the idea of other people will like too. This is important for a society. People love the idea to be fit within the others. Therefore, If we want to change people’s behavior within their society, we must flame the fire in the sticks.

The fire could be anything good. If we tried one thing and we waited to see the result, It will never work that way. Changes should be consistence, repeated steps. Most importantly, we should remind the people every time about this change. That’s the only way. Ask the people to change every time you meet them. Ask them to do the right things.

Standing in perfect lines

This is a good example of chain reaction. I have taken this photo inside one of Benghazi’s mosques.Chain Reaction

There’s a printed paper is sticking on the wall. It says that prayer should stand on the line. Their heels should be aligned with the back line. It was mounted in the perfect spot. Because people in the first raw will read it. Usually people inside the mosque are so polite that they follow any instructions. So, once people in the first raw read it, they will adjust their position accordingly. The magic will happen. People in the second raw will adjust theirs according to the position to the first raw without reading the paper. Then, the chain reaction will occur among all the other lines.

The idea of the chain reaction is important for our society. Good behavior is easy to spread out as much as the bad things. Sometimes the bad behavior easier to spread out because it carries the reward. Yes, the reward of breaking the regulation as I explained that in my Habit topic.
We should keeping insistence to change Libya. I’m so tired of the way things here is getting done. I keep informing people that what they do is wrong. I know they know it, but I just say it, maybe something it will change. (وذكر) Just keep reminding them until we find the chain reaction within our life.

This 4 Words Are What Libya Needs These Days

We are sticking in the mud. “Libya  is going to hit the wall  البلاد ماشية في الساس “ is the sentence that everyone is saying these days. Yes, we don’t know where we are going. I’m not talking about political issues. However, somehow these issues involve in many things. I’m talking about the general life issues in Libya, at least from my perspective. We are stuck in the middle of no where. All the world is watching us, and what will happen in the next step we take. We have to be efficient to build our country. To build a better life in the future, we have to start now. Yes, right now!! These the four words act as the plan that every Libyan should use in their daily life. We need to organize our life based on this plan. Follow these words.

See

SEE: See it everyday. Just see your city as the perfect city in the world. Just close your eyes now and see yourself in perfect shape. Just dream you have all good stuff near you. Just imagine how Benghazi looks like in the future. Just dream!! There’s no limit to your dreams. Dreams are free. So, just dream. See the world as one of possibilities rather than constraints. See the path that your city should take to reach what you have imagined. You have to have a dream to live a real dream. Once you have a clear vision on what you and your city should be in the near future, you have to move to the next word.

Believe

BELIEVE: Believe that you can change your life. Believe that you can change your environment and your city. Believe that you can change the way things are now and create a new set of life. You should believe in your ability. You should believe that Libyans people have the ability to change Libya with you. Believe that your country have the right resource to establish the country that we are dreaming about. Without believing, we can do nothing. Once you become confident with yourself and your people, you should move to the next thing.

Think-01

THINK: If you have a dream about that perfect life, and If you believe that you can transform your life, then you should think about how to change it. Think about the changes required to make meaningful transformation possible, and create a realistic plan. Plan first is what we all should do first. Planing, planing, and planing first. The life should be like this. Everything should be planned first, then the execution comes. However, what i have witnessed in Libya is the execution comes first without planing. Planing reduces errors later by 30%. Once you decide to build your new dream house, you will prepare some blueprints (خرائط) first, then you will start construction your house. And our life should be the same. Take 15 min every morning to plan your day, then start your day. You should include everything you are going to do. Libya needs a plan for next day, next week, next year, and the next 100 years. So, planing could be constructed for different duration. Thinking and planing are the most important part of our life. Without deep thinking we never accomplishing anything.

Act

ACT: Once you have seen everything, and have done a perfect plan, you can now start acting. Acting is the steps of execution. This step is to carry out and make some effort to finsh your plans. I was thinking a lot about starting this blog, and I just did it. Don’t stuck in just thinking a lot, just act. Don’t talk a lot, just act. Once you start acting, you will feel accomplished. It’s a great feeling. I feel so happy while I’m writing this article. I was thinking and planing to write, and I just now acting what I have seen, believed, and planned.

All-01

Libya needs everyone effort to get out from the mud. Libya needs to real honest Libyans who have a vision and ability to act.

5 Things Libya Sits On The Top Of The World

Posted by Mutaz Gedalla

Every time when I surf the internet, I come up across many lists that are ranked some countries as the top. From the largest countries in car production list to the lowest number of unemployment rate.  I have wondered what we are good at or what we are bad at? Are we just sits among the world in the shade. How Libya to become the number one in anything? It turns out we are sit on some lists as number one. Here’s the 5 things we are the number one in the world:

1- No 1 in population Growth Rate

According to The Central Intelligent Agency (CIA), in 2013, Libya is the number one in the population rate by 4.85%. Which means Libya is the most country where the avarage percent change in the population occurred in a year. By more births compared to the number of death and the number of migrants inter Libya or leave it. Here’s the list

Top Population Growth Rate in the World

2- No 1 in the slowest internet connection

I’m Struggling somehow with typing this topic in WordPress. That’s why I’m pretty sure we are the slowest internet connection in the world. LTT  is the only company provider for internet connection in Libya. There’s no competitors, so there is only high profit for LTT with awful internet connection. According to the research held previous year in the crowd of the internet using countries the slow internet connection having countries are as below:

Slowest Net

The Slowest Internet Connection

3- No 1 in Net  Migration Rate

According to The Central Intelligent Agency (CIA), in 2013, Libya is the number one in net migration rate. In other words, the number of people who enter or leave a country during a  year per 1000 persons. The net migration rate indicates the contribution of migration to the overall level of population change. In my view, this is a stunning data, because I didn’t notice this rate on streets.

4- No 1 in the world’s most dangerous roads

According to the General Directorate of Traffic Statistics, there has been a rise in the number of people killed on Libya’s roads.  The Libyan new agency LANA has quoted the directorate saying that 2,728 people were killed in 2,112 traffic accidents between the beginning of January and the end of November last year.

Steps to Online Shopping in Libya

credit-card-online-shoppingLast Week, my uncle asked me about online shopping when I was checking my email on my laptop . His question was simple “How to buy products online?”.  For a moment, I said that you could asked me this question 10 years ago. However, I realized that many Libyan people do not understand what is Online Shopping.

Outside Libya, the rest of the world, has been using the online shopping for over than two decades. Libya could establish the Online Shopping if it provides the basic requirments. The next steps are to show you how Libya could success and thrive in this section:

1- First step is we need the internet connection:LTT

LTT (Libya Telecom and Technology) is the only local internet provider in Libya. People complain about the speed and monthly limitation for downloads. Yes, they are right. The internet is not fast and it’s too bad and the worst in the world according to some statistics. The internet connection is really bad for video streaming and downloading. However, for browsing, it’s good. For browsing some online shopping websites (Amazon and Ebay) is perfect. Therefore, the first step we already have it.

2- Second Step is the electronic payment: credit-cards_2007247b

When it comes to payment, the issues start to flow. Most Libyans do not have any type of online payment. Electronic payment is how you pay money without real money or paper check. Electronic payment include credit card or Debit card (Visa, Master Card, or American Express). In the last three years, some Libyan banks start providing some method of electronic payment, such as مصرف التجارة والتنمية. So, to be able to do shopping online, you have to have one of these cards. You can get one for internet use only.

3- Third step is the Shipping company: Fedex

To be able to receive your product that you bought  online, you need someone to deliver it to you. Here is the big problem in Libya. There’re not shipping companies in Libya. In other words, we don’t have a reliable institution to deliver the product wherever you are. The are some international companies, such as Fedex, DHL, and UPS. However, there are limited in terms of delivery directly to you.The best company now is Aramex. I made an account with them, but it’s too expensive to use.

4- Fourth step is your address:location

Your address is your location. Your main address is you home address. If you want to receive your products, you need to provide your address. There’s no address in Libya. Yes, many people from outside Libya ask me about my address, Unfortunately, we don’t have. The address is so simple. It contains your home number, your street name, your neighbor name, and your city. The government said that is going to make address for every house in Libya. When?? I have no Idea.

So, In order to be able to enjoy shopping online, you need all these steps. Now, people use the internet and their cellphones number in order to sell or buy something. The other steps are missing.Libya people start their own online shopping using social media. I’ve seen a lot of people sell their stuff on Facebook by providing the product image and some information and his/her cell phone. This is the easiest way to shop online in Libya right now. These steps is for convince shopping. wait for the future. I’m sure it’s better.

What do you think about Online Shopping in Libya now? and How it’s going to be active? Let me know your opinion.
