Finally: The Freedom

Today guys I've submitted my dissertation, this mean I finished nearly 95% of my degree and I'm waiting to my oral exam on the 5th of September, for the whole past year I felt as a slave to the books, study, exams and most importantly slave to the system ,do this and do not do that, which I never did. It is too difficult when u come back to the study after spending some years working, cos it is totally different environment and different prospective, ur mind will be adjusted to the job environment and u will find more difficulty to come back to study environment, so my advice if u have attention to carry more study, do it after u finish ur undergraduate degree directly do not work for long time and after that start study again

I would say thanks to Kemi for her help in reading and correct my bad English in my final draft, also I would thank Bill Gates for the this thing called word application, which I spend horrible week only to know how it is work.

This is my acknowledgment u can rate it, I know it is between 9.5 to 10, don’t say less than :-P :-P :-P

"وما اوتيتم من العلم الا قليلا"

صدق الله العظيم

Now, I am watching my keyboard, I do not know what I should write, many pictures are passing in front of my eyes for the whole past year at Warwick, I think I passed through many challenging, frustrating, difficult times in this year. However, I must admit that the support that I got from Allah (God) was unlimited which allow me to pass over all these difficult times.

First of all, I would like to thank Dr. Ricardo Banuelas, for his strong support, thanks to Ricardo's trust and generosity, thank him to his trusting on my ability to do this research; I particularly would like to thank Ricardo's patience and kindness.

Further, I would like to express my gratitude and love to my special friends whose care and encouragement have helped me through this journey. Thanks to Reda, and Anas, for the ultimate support.

Finally, and most importantly, I would like to say thanks to my mother, who has always given me her deep care, support and love without expecting anything in return and without her I would not be the man I am today. These words are not enough to honour what you did for me, but I do want you to know that if I have ever achieved anything significant in my life, it is all because of you.

Second generation Issue

Yesterday I had phone from my friend, who is living in Manchester, it was as usual about Libya, we had long debate on the phone about one hot issue related to the Libyan second generation who born and rise here in uk, my friend living here since 1990 and he has 3 children the eldest 11 and the youngest is 6, he is working as engineer in respected company, yesterday he phoned and told me I need your advice, his question was I need to go back Libya for good what is ur for advice me? I told him it's depend in his reasons and situation, which I was totally sure it's related to his children, which he replied and told me listen I need my children to be pure Libyan, I don’t want let them face conflict in the future about their identity, are they British or are they Libyan, to be honest all my friends here who have families they face this problem, all of them they suffer from this point, and all of them start to think to go back to Libya or to another Arabic country (most preferred country is Emartes).my friend told me the first problem I face is that children communicate to each other in his house by English not by Arabic, he told me he never speak English with them he just speak Arabic, but it seems the children find it easy to communicate by English, last few month I visited my friend in London who have two adorable children I think they were 5 and 7 and he faces the same problem the amazing thing is that when the father ask them to do any thing, he ask them by Arabic but the kids replay by English which I founded very strange, how can brain of small kid can understand the question by language and replayed the answer by another, also this friend start to think to leave uk to another country just to maintain the identity of his children, last month I went to a Libyan wedding in Birmingham with my friend and his two sons, which I know them very good, they both speak good Arabic, actually their father use his power and some times he punishes them if they speak English in their house and he do his best to let them remember all the Quran and read it every day in the mosque just to maintain their Arabic language, these kids I never hear them speak English , but that day, their father just left them with me for 5 minutes to speak to another friend and immediately the kids start speak English to each other, which I was completely surprised, I asked them what happen u just speaking Arabic before seconds , why u speak English now, they told me it takes long time from them to express what they think or what they want if they speak by Arabic but in English it so easy.

These examples and others from people who I know they lift Canada just to maintain the Libyan identity for their kids, it seems to be big problems for the families who live here, actually I can not feel this problem some times I told my friend you make problem from nothing, but in the other hand after these kids grow up I think they will find difficulties to answer this question am I Libyan or British, Canadian or American, to which part of this world they belong to.

Actually I face some thing similar to this problem now, my father who is from Albida 200km east Benghazi, ask my younger brothers and sisters to move from Benghazi to Albida to tack care of our land and house there and to be near our roots, but he faces a big opposition of them, they told him how we can move to another place completely different, as you see these guys refuse to move to another city even it is in the same country, same language, same law, what about these guys who born here after they grow up, will they find it easy to move to Libya with different environment, different prospective, I think it is very complicated issue. What you think?
