(Resemblance to the Case of Sunday Adeyemo -Igboho)

When the Bolivian military managed to find Che Guevara out of hiding with the information off a shepherd, they asked the shepherd : "Why denouncing a man who sacrificed himself yet for your freedom and well-being?"

The shepherd replied: "I denounced him because the crackling of arms scares my animals in pasture".

When Mohamed Karim, the Egyptian who undertook to resist the assault of Alexandria launched by Napoleon, was arrested by the army and sentenced to death, Napoleon appealed to him and said: "I have the trouble to execute a man who has valiantly defended his country, I do not wish history to retain the image of a person who stifles the impetus of the patriots that defend the integrity of their homeland, so, I promise you freedom if you pay ten thousand gold coins as financial compensation to my soldiers that the resistance killed ", smiling, Mohamed Karim replied:" I do not have the full amount requested on me, but I am indebted more than 100 thousand pieces of gold by the merchants of Alexandria, they will pay for sure, this fine, so that I have my life saved! "

Chained, Mohamed Karim was driven to the Alexandria market for a tour of the market in search of the sum on which his freedom will depend. But, to his great surprise, no merchant was on his fate, worse, the natives accused him of being a troublemaker, destroyer of property, and undermining the economic vitality of the port city of Alexandria! "

Napoleon, in view of the resignation of his family towards him, declared: "I will concede that the sentence of capital punishment be executed not because you killed my soldiers, but for having fought for cowardly people, who care more about their business than about their integrity! "

Mohamed Rachid Rida, Syrian Arab reformator said:

"To revolt on behalf of an ignorant people, is like to set yourself on fire in order to light the way for a blind man!"

Meditate to fully understand the ingratitude of a society that is ready to shamelessly deny its commitments, its convictions and its values...

Merry Christmas
