New Drug in Europe and North America: Opium Khat Damages Canadian Semitic Families

Does the Arab-Hoojarian-Yemenite Candidate for the Green Party of Canada fit the Ideology of Greens or does he fit the attitudes of the Marijuana Party of the World?
Canadian-Arab-Hoojarian-Yemenite is the Candidate of the Green Party for MP Dr. Ghanem was born in Yemen- Aden, and specifically to the famous place called Al-Hoojaria, the place, where its people are civilized, tolerant and educated.

One of the most famous politicians of the Al-Hoojaria region was the Messiah Abd al-Fattah Ismail, the Chairman of the Presidium of the Supreme People's Council, head of state of the People's Democratic Republic of Yemen, and founder, chief ideologue, and first leader of the Yemeni Socialist Party from 21 December 1978 to 21 April 1980.

Dr. Qais is the son of a famous Hoojarian-Arab professor of literature, Mohamed Abduo Ghanem, who acquired his Ph.D. in English Literature from the University of London, UK.

I would like to assist you as a Candidate of the Canadian Green Party. I have experience, as I was a member of the Arab Canadian University Graduates Association (ACUGA) for one year. The environment was not good; newcomers as well as new absolvents can not participate in any important activities, their opinions are not taken seriously.

The ACUGA was full of corruption and managed by a bureaucratic system. So, I wrote at that time short poem describing the situation as a part of my volunteer job. I wanted to correct the Arab Intellectualist House in general and ACUGA in particular. The Poem says"

" Let us revolve against the bureaucrats of intellectualism. The revolution, which possess the securities, hopes, wishes, happiness and inspirations.
Let us light the candles and put them on the candlestick, get out the hands that spanned to the brains by wrong, quantify and prevent the muting of mouths, which struck the nation with dumbness.
Our SIRS: Our heritage and activities become poems of Al-Hansa and Al-Hassan Ibn Al-Newman, and also our songs, tunes, raptures and melodies are " the affairs of an earlier age and time".
Moreover, our civilization has stopped since the Calamity of June. Let us sing and say "secure, secure and safety and safety".
In addition, the lectures become as the month of Ramadan, the month of repentance and forgiveness. Is it the true that we are creative humans or we are descents of the monkeys?"

In addition, I would like the Canadian Yemenite candidate and his Green Party to pay attention, take care of human beings feeling and health, which are devastated by using drugs e.g. opium Khat, This is wide spread among the Yemenite-Community in Canada, the community that is financially supported by Mr. Ghanem as well as by the ambassador of Yemen. I hope that Dr. Qais Ghanem can explain his opinion about the impact of opium Khat on health as a medical doctor not as a politician. What is his previous, recent and future plan to fight against using drugs in Canada, United States, UK, and Yemen etc?


I wish Dr. Qais Ghanem as well as the Canadian Green Party good luck. I think that in this new environment he will succeed and do an excellent job for Canada our homeland.

Khat contains the alkaloid called cathinone, an amphetamine-like stimulant, which cause excitement, loss of appetite and euphoria. In 1980 the World Health Organization classified khat as a drug of abuse that can produce mild to moderate psychological dependence. The plant has been targeted by anti-drug organizations like the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). It is a controlled as illegal substance in many countries. Despite that fact, Yemenite, Somali, Djiboutian, and other African communities in Canada, America, Germany and United Kingdom use it.
