Message in freedom
Two months after his release from the Emirati prison, Tayseer Al-Najjar wrote an article in which he spoke about part of his suffering, which was titled: “A Message in Freedom … Pain Now.”
Al-Najjar said in the article: “After a month and a half after I left the prison, which is called a prison, the prison is still accompanying me.”
He added, “I do not know what I should do precisely or not, until I feel that I have come out of the security prison in Abu Dhabi city that bears the visible secret. And the deep meanings of the words that have become the destiny of every Arab person. The most prominent of these words: oppression, tyranny, tyranny, injustice, but the oppressor has no consolation except his fear of freedom.
He continued: “The first thing I did was when the blazing fits of crying came out, the seizure of convulsions, and the succession of fits, and now she is living a continuous fit of silence.
He continued: “My question to myself is: What should I do, in order to get out of those painful years that accompany my senses and flow in my body. I did not feel that I was out of prison, because whoever is imprisoned in the UAE is accompanied by prison at every moment of his life.
He adds: “Everyone wants me to be strong, because everyone“ this ”did not taste the essence of human pain, and because everyone“ this ”did not know what the meaning of the movement of the body is, and how the jailer mastered it. In my solitary prison ”.
He says, “The pain that I tasted in prison is greater than our idea of pain and our understanding of it.”
He continues: “My life in prison was based on the patience of the heart, this heart that was broken. The interrogator was stepping on him, as if he was stepping on a plate of glass.
What do we do with all these shrapnel?
He continued: “What do we do with all these shrapnel? What do we do with the body in which there is no longer blood, but harsh pain and memories, and still, because the process of crushing all human vocabulary takes place in solitary confinement.
He continued: “It is not important to preserve what you call your humanity, what is important is to preserve your existence. Being alive is the most important thing that enables you to preserve your right to understand the past, not fix it. ”
Al-Najjar said: “Injustice is a word of language and the reality of a life that I lived with with all pain, patience, and satisfaction from God … the actions and sayings of injustice that occurred to me I will reckon with God.”
And he continued: “As one of the wise men says, injustice somewhere represents a threat to justice everywhere..belief in God is the only force that fills the inclusions of pain with flowers and jasmine.”
