Here they come again, the west conquering another planet with a state of the art rover that reached Mars and sent out the above images. The two images is form Rovers first communications with Nasa showing the horizon and it’s own shadow.
While we think about where to add Nutella and eat it. While people still fight about the past. While our concerns are about if the perfume makes you break your fast or not. They keep reaching places we don’t even dream of. We used to say they have walked on the moon. Now, they reached Mars while we didn’t reach even the south pole.
We keep attacking the west and people think they are the source of all sins in the world. Yet they forget the good things and the huge development. We use their technologies, their cars, their science and everything they develop. We are the first to buy their products with stupid prices claiming “we can afford it”.
We try to report spam Twitter accounts because they “do not agree with us”. They try to stop churches being built and make a fuss when the west doesn’t want to build a mosque. We are scared of losing our traditions more than developing for the future.
The above video is from Al-Shugairy’s show “khawater”. In this video he visits Google and talks about how they started and what they have created now. Even their work environment is different. Notice how Al-Shugairy tries his best to give us something else and to learn from others. he knows we have a problem and he tries to fix it. However, who listens?
The Arabs had their time when they were great in many things like astronomy, math and surgery. I wish I knew what happened since then. What caused us to shift our mindset and stop developing.
Our mentality got to change, by change it does not mean to fear losing our faith. Faith has nothing to do in development and being up to date. We should learn from the west and not just buy their products. We don’t even have a company that can compete with any western top 100.
