Loudly Saying What Is Just and Right

by
Abby Zimet

From The Guardian, the nightmare saga
of U.K. resident and lawyer Omar Deghayes, who kept fighting back
through almost six years in Bagram and then Guantanamo. He was never
charged with or convicted of anything.

"There's a Muslim [God] ­behind things, there's a hereafter, our
patience and hardships will be ­rewarded and the pain has to end
sometime. Our religion teaches these things - the good always prevails
and the bad is only temporary."

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
