دموع التماسيح الإثيوبية

دموع التماسيح الإثيوبية

ما حدث في حي منفوحة بمدينة الرياض من شغب قام به الإثيوبيون ، لم يكن مفاجأة بالنسبة لي ، فقد توقعت حدوث ذلك ، وربما يقع مثله في احياء اخرى ، ومدن ثانيه ، لان المخالفين لنظام الإقامة يظنون ان المملكة قد تتراجع عن ترحيلهم ولو لبعض الوقت ، اتقاء لمشاكلهم ، ومراعاة لنظرة العالم المتحفز لأي خطأ في الإجراءات قد تقع فيها بعض الجهات المسؤولة عن ترحيلهم ، وقد فات أولئك انهم ليسوا لاجئين بهذا البلد ، ممن أجبرتهم الكوارث على النزوح إلينا ، وليست إقامتهم نظامية ، بل هم مخالفون ، ومرتكبون جرم التسلل الى بلاد ليست بلادهم ، كما ان وجودهم ليس لطلب الرزق الحلال ، فأغلبهم يتاجرون بالممنوعات ، مثل الخمور التي يقومون بإعدادها بمنازلهم ، ويمارس الكثير منهم الدعارة التي تفشت وانتشرت بينهم ، ويتبع آخرون طرق السلب ، والنهب ، والسرقة، والاحتيال ، وبيع المخدرات .

By Paul Schemm | The announcement by the United Nations in March that 20 million people in four countries were teetering on the edge of famine stunned the world and rammed home the breadth of the humanitarian crisis faced by so many in 2017. Yet even as donors struggle to meet the severe needs in the war-torn nations of Nigeria, South Sudan, Somalia and Yemen, another crisis, more environmental in nature, is taking place nearby — nearly unnoticed.
