Yeah, this is the 4th year the Bibliotheca Alexandrina hosting the Arab Youth Forum and this time adopting as always an important issue concerning the Arab Youth Identity at the Age of Globalization.
Frankly speaking this year I loved a lot the organization as a result of being more professional, the idea of getting sponsorship through Sponsors and a speaker from the Egyptian National Council of Human Rights.
As mentioned many times before, I just want to assure that youth are the main power right now in Arab societies, the youth media representing in Blogging, Tubing and E-Press was very important factor in both the recent wars Lebanon 2006 then the Gaza one 2009, because they could disclose the whole and the real situation before the West, therefore, the youth in such events are meritorious to be appreciated more than Arab regimes, governments and ordinary Media.
the Role of the youth is not a grant they obtain as something optional from their regimes, but, it is one of their fundamental rights, yeah, governments having Ministries or Councils of Youth, however, there is a big gap in between the Arab regimes and the youth they own who amounted to 70% of the Arab population.
Yeah, we need to find about 100 M jobs for youth by 2025, however, it will never be achieved without implementing justice, Academic Freedom, Human Rights, Stronger NGOs and Parties, planned networking, Freedom of expression and of course Democracy.
We have to use the existence of Obama as a young American President has a good understanding of our crises and problems; however the intentions have to be clear.
We have no fear from globalization or internet when we apply the right Academic Freedom that shall make us as youth aware enough, we do not need any more trusteeship from the older generation or censorship, but fear is occurring when there is no transparency.
Yeah, we have a Dream, but the real life obliges us to achieve it in the right time “we can do it”, based on experimental methodology and accountability.
