The words of the poet Ben Djaffar.

Work of the artist Djaffar

To believe that democracy someday will be apperant in the Arab States or that the idea of respect for human dignity will touch their minds for even a split seccond is comparable to the scientist thinking that a headtransplant is possible. They establish themselves all in the name of God but compete as they are for the glory of the devil. Threat, coercion, corruption, torture, arbitrariness, slavery, beheadings, hangings and genocide: that’s their kit for governance. – The words of the Poet-painter Ben Djaffar.
