The struggle for people’s right is being hijacked by a US-zionist project to frustrate the aspirations of the people. Unless people in the region are careful, they may find themselves losing all the gains they have made.
What started as a people’s movement for change against decades of oppression in the Muslim East is being subverted into a project to serve the US-Zionist agenda. Unfortunately, even some of the victims of US-Zionist crimes, have started working on this agenda. This is a pity and will cost the people dearly. Change does not come easily and requires great sacrifices. It is the responsibility of the leadership to provide direction, motivate people, and not fall for the easy way out.
