LETTER TO THE EDITOR BY OMAR SHEIKMOUS – HISTORICAL CO-FOUNDER OF PUK PARTY

Hello Hans,

I hope that all is well. – I loved your comment in today´s MESOP Bulletin about the idiotic peaceniks that had demonstrated in Germany against the planned attack against Assad´s forces in Syria. They should have asked the Syrian masses what they think of that, before taking such a stupid stand.

What a difference between the Left during our time and today´s Left, that have totally lost their correct ideological orientation. They are blinded by their infantile anti-americanism and never think of the victims, where their solidarity should be expressed.

I had the same experience during the Halabja attacks and today after what Assad is doing to the Syrian people.

Now, I fully understand my late friend Christopher Hitchens when in late 2002 wrote an op-ed in Washington Post entitled ” Good Bye Fellow Travellers” , after the wrong stand of the Left on Iraq.

What a marvellous work you are doing with MESOP. Take care and thank you.

Omar.
