Yes, I am proud to be Jordanian
The lows that people stoop to these days!
I'm just really in so much shock from some of my "friends".
Everyone know, I'm Jordanian, from a Palestinian origin. I love both, I am both, I can't prefer one to the other. They're both in my bloodstream, they define me. They have my allegiance. Both. Just like the human heart has 4 sections, and we have two eyes. Do you prefer your right eye to your left eye!!?
My "friend" had the audacity to mock the flag I had in my car...
This is the same flag. I had it in my car in Amman.
I usually would take most things as jokes, but this time, I knew it wasn't!
I am proud of my country, insulting it unjustly is like insulting me. It's unfair, it's completely uncalled for and never justified.
The sad part is my "friend" recently got neutralized, so now he has the citizenship of the new country. He didn't find it embarrassing to walk around with a little pin of the new country on his chest.
I don't want to be too harsh and criticize his new country, but at the same time, you owe a great deal of gratitude to the country that houses your family, nurtures, protects and supports them. Not to forget that you were also one of them before you got out to get your stupid PhD.
It's a shame when the brightest minds, hold within them the seeds of thier greatest blunders!
Don't mock my flag, it's worth to more to me than all your degrees that didn't get you an inch closer to humanity.
And yes, I'm damn proud to be, among other things, Jordanian.
