RADIO INTERVIEW FOR TWO BOOKS with M.T. Al-Mansouri by Ric Bratton FOR NATIONAL RADIO OF AMEREICA
THE RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE ROOSTER AND THE SEA
TERRORISM THE ORIGINS AND THE SOURCES
I’m hereby honored to take this opportunity for an interesting radio interviews concerning the two books.
A Yemeni Arab Canadian, who completed a PhD in Poland in the field of Agriculture. Specifically agricultural economics. After graduation in 1995, I worked at the Qatar University for three years and thereafter immigrated to Canada.
THROUGH THESE LITERARY FORMS COMMUNICATES HIS OPINIONS ON A WIDE VARIETY OF WORLD AFFAIRS AND ISSUES
Through this literary communication, I would want to help audience of these books to understand what underlies terrorism, corruption, religious intolerance, political ideologies, and poverty; social and economic hardships that affect multitude of people in the Middle East or other developing countries.
WHY IT IS IMPORTANT TO WRITE?
First of all, I would like to quote on quote that: "The pen is mightier than the sword”, which is a Metonymic adage that was created by an English author Edward Bulwer Lyton in 1839 to mean that communication in the form of written language to cause some understandings, have some forms of command that can encourage independent press, is a more powerful mental weapon rather than direct violence.
The importance and reasons for my writing is to enlighten people in order to understand the virtues of human dignity, freedoms and rights.
HOW LONG TO WRITE:
I wrote this book in thirteen years for the first book and seven years for the second book. Why did it take me that long? I had to do a lot of research with some quantitative analysis while evading consequences of Middle East attention. In other words, I had to exercise maximum discretion.
The issues that I have chosen were messages (in the chapter 2 of Terrorism, the Origin and the sources) to world leaders to stand against crimes committed by the Israel government against Palestinians. There was a specific letter that I intended for President Obama to release black people in Yemen from slavery.
OFFER THOUGHT PROVOKING APPROACHES GET US INVOLVED
Through media and economic sanctions from the western civilization could help in alleviating the fates of those victims of ancient to modern slavery in north Yemen. Why should the western governments take drastic actions against North Yemen? It is because the blacks in North Yemen are treated very inhumane manners. I wanted to let the world know that the American slave descendants are much better than North Yemen slave descendants. The scenario in North Yemen against the black Yemenis is that they are denied formal education, no jobs, treated as second class citizens and they do not have any hope for future.
THE RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE ROOSTER AND THE SEA
On page 142 depicts the escape of the Yemen president (Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi) from the Houthees (Iranian backed rebels). After President Hadi’s brief refuge to Saudi Arabia, he decided to come back to Yemen in order to give hope to the people of Yemen. President Hadi has succeeded to bring Yemenis together in fighting against the Houthees.
A COLLECTION OF FABLES AND POETRIES WHY THIS FORM?
The fables are meant to vilify the authorities that created false heroes, which ended in their demise. For example the late president of Iraq who surrounded himself with generals that did not fight the second gulf war to the end. The insight comprehension is withdrawn from fables such as in page 18 of the Terrorism and the origins of the sources described under the title: The Universal Matrices of the Green Thoughts.
The seven wonders of the modern warships (page 123 Terrorism Origin and sources) were the homes of people, which the government of Yemen government used as prison to house political opposition members who pose threats to the government.
The republic of red monkeys (page 180 The Recommendations of the Rooster and the Sea). This poetry describes the corrupting behaviours of developing world politicians who embezzle their public funds and bank them into the Swiss bank and they feel they are roosters that have conquered their citizens.
COMMENTARIES MUSINGS WRITINGS
ADDRESSES AN ECLECTIC ARRAY OF TOPICS OF INTEREST IN THE WORLD TODAY
POLITICAL PROCLIVITIES TERRORISM PREJUDICE INJUSTICE MULTICULTURALISM WAR AND PEACE
NATIONALIZATION MARRIAGE AND FAMILY LOVE AND BEAUTY
The political intensions in support of terrorism, prejudice, injustice, multiculturalism war and peace are all forms of creating political instability in a country or region who will turn back for economic support from the west. Moreover, terrorism is sponsored by political and religious fundamentalists in order to continue oppressing the weak citizens who do not know their human rights and freedoms.
Nationalization is an identity for a people who have common history or race. This is compounded by marriage and family, but essentially marriages are reinforced by love and beauty. The latter emotions are deeper than the surface because beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. Whereas love breaks all boundaries of race, nationality and religion.
WHAT BOOK DESIGNED TO DO UNCOVER TRUTH
AN INTELLECTUAL THOUGHT PROVOKING APPROACH TO DEPICT THE HIDDEN CARICATURES OF THE REPRESSIVE REGIMES OF THE WORLD EXAMPLES
The thought provoking approaches in depicting some hidden caricatures of the repressive regimes are the military regimes who use violence, intimidation by police brutality and corruption. However, those regimes are supported by the western countries in the forms of supplying arms and economic development funds. Thus, the developed world have their hands in whatever violates human rights in those developing countries.
THE SONG OF SARKOZY AND MINE DISCUSS
This short chapter uncovers the secret assassinations of two French ladies in Yemen together with the assassination of the president of Yemen, Ibrahim Al Hamdi in 1976. Also, the Martyrs of the revolution of the 15th, October 1978 in Yemen. Both cases were hidden by the government of north Yemen.
THE PROPHECY THAT WAS HIDDEN BY THE CANADIAN FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AND THE STATE OF KUWAIT
This is a short chapter that prophesised the code that related to September 11the, 2001 terrorist attacks of the twin towers in New York.
MEMOIRS OF YEMEN'S CRIMES
This is short chapter describes the dilemma of Yemeni students that were studying abroad and stopping financial support for them. This scenario got the students into trouble.
NEW THEORY AND THE ADVISORY OPINION FROM DR M T MANSOURI PH D.
This is a social and ethical conceptions of the people of Yemen with regards to use of narcotics (Khat), which they use for suppressing their stressors of life due to economic hardships that is felt by majority of the impoverished masses. I attempted to advise the Yemeni masses to ban use of narcotics that increases crime amongst the destitute youth population who are easily manipulated by political and religious elites in committing crimes. Moreover, this advisory opinion is to help the western civilisation to understand the unknown secrets of the people of Yemen or some Middle Eastern countries and vice versus.
THE SHIP OF FAITH AND DREAMS (the recommendations of the rooster and the sea page 148)
This is the hypothetical ship (country) in which the people of Arabia have faith in fulfilling their dreams. However, billionaires in these countries who feel insecure have the tendencies of brainwashing the youth who do not see any future by indoctrinating them into acts of terrorism. The questions to ponder about these hidden hands are what benefits their motives? The conceptions are varied. (1) By cultivating terrorism, there will be a big catches of arms deals between the Arabian countries and the Western countries. (2) There are more economic aid allocated to the affected countries. (3) The state of Israel feels the threats from their neighborhoods.
WHAT ARE A FEW OF THE IDEAS THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO DISCUSS
I would like to discuss ideas on page 23 of the Recommendations of the Rooster and the Sea. This page describes the invisible sexual beings. These groups are the secret societies that are hidden in holy places such as those priests in the catholic churches. However, there are more spiritual powers that exist and haunts its victims. For example the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people have laws that are not supported in most developing countries who are forced by the western countries to accept in exchange for economic aid.
TERORISM THE ORIGIN AND THE SOURCES
In regards to the LGBT laws and economic aid for developing countries, Terrorism the origin and the sources indoctrinates the youth into fighting and dying as Jihadist, but with a promise of marriage to twelve virgins in heaven. However, the Vatican and other Christian denominations seem to accept same sex marriages, which are counter divinely.
I wrote these books in order to enlighten people about the dynamics of extremes of our belief systems that seem to be affecting humanity in diversity.
WARN OF THE CONSEQUENCES OF THE PRESENT AND PREDICT THE FUTURE
The consequences of the present phenomenon could predict a more dangerous and disastrous future because of the following reasons:
BENEFIT AND LOSS
This paragraph depicts the creation of the Iraqi secret service to protect the Iraqi national heroes. These heroes were political figures who were celebrated because of their patriotic influences in maintaining the unity of Iraqis by inclusion of the Kurdish people.
COMBINES IN SHORT STORIES WISDOM BEAUTY GODLY PREACHING AND EXHORTATION
These combinations of short stories, wisdom, beauty, Godly preaching and exhortations are meant to convey messages that are only received by intuition, which are the reminders of abstracts that make humans to understand forces that are beyond their comprehensions. However, in simplicity insightful comprehensions are therapeutic in nature because wisdom and the beauty of Godly preaching are inspirations that calm human minds.
SECOND BOOK HOW DIFFERENT
The second book is not very much different from the first book because it is the continuation of the first book. The Terrorism, Origin and sources has linkages with wars, peace, social injustice and economic repressions of the peoples of the Middle East.
HOW HAVE TIMES CHANGED
Times have changed because of globalisation and technology transfer, which includes the internet and effective social media. The rise in the number of highly educated citizens of the Arab countries has changed the political landscape because there many educated masses who wish to make positive changes in order to have a smooth transitions into the more dynamic world today.
REACTION TO BOOKS
I feel that my books could enlighten millions of people in understanding the hidden secrets of the Middle Eastern countries in order for the world to not condemn them, but be good Samaritans to the Middle East countries.
WHO DESIGNED FOR
Stratton press and I designed the book cover.
WHAT WORKING ON CURRENTLY
I’m currently working on a book titled. A Flower In Exile, which is a political ambigrams.
