Human Rights Watch

This video was sent to me by one of my readers. Please watch and let me know what do you think.

Thanks Soud for helping me upload it.

An Update
Youtube decided to delete the clip from their site on the excuse that there have been a lot of complaints about it. I reloaded the clip on google video. So for those who could not get to watch it before, the clip is working now.

    اقل ما يقال عنهم بانهم حيوانات و بهايم و كلاب مجردة من الانسانية

    مثال صريح على العقلية الصحراوية التي ترفض التمدن

    اتمنى ان لعنه النفط تنتهي حتى تلاقي هذه الزباله نفس المصير

    العلماء حول العالم يتنافسون لايجاد بدائل عن الطاقه التقليديه . و لا استبعد ان لعنه النفط ستنتهي حتي قبل ان تنضب الابار النفطيه.

    I have seen this before, there are many ways to describe these people:

    – Savages: when you watch the video and see how they beat a defenseless person, that is the only way to describe them.
    Uneducated: they do not have even the smallest ounce of respect for their employees or their responsibility as an employer.
    Immature: the guy that is doing the beating seems to act like a little child that finally had a chance to beat someone and show that he is an alpha male.
    Cowards: They can not do something like this with a local that can defend himself and is offered some sort of legal protection. It is easy to beat someone if that person can not fight back.

    In the big picture, the problem is with the laws and enforcement of them for foreign workers. Some of the gulf countries treat third world country workers as less than human in both their laws and enforcement practices. There is no recourse for these workers when they get abused, the best they can hope for is for the law to interfere in which case no penalties will be issued against the employer and all what happens is the poor worker loses his job and get deported. The worker is faced with tough choices either accept the abuse or lose his job.

    Additionally, the countries where these workers come from are not doing enough to protect their citizens through international agreements. They would rather not rock the boat and risk the hard currency flow into the country.

    I’m sorry, I could not complete the clip. It is a bitter fact yet hard to watch.

    I don’t understand the duality of conservatism/religious and abuse. How can they justify one in the presence of the other?!

    Ayya/All,

    Please, see the link below of how civilized countries should treat those individuals who mistreat their foreign servants. Violations of rights happen in every country, but there is a difference of how these violations are treated under the law.

    I felt sorry for the poor guy, these people only do that because they know that they can get away with it.

    I want to say I am shocked and appalled, but I’m not. Appalled, yes, but shocked? No. This is normal because people can get away with it. Until we implement laws that protect everyone this will continue to go on. Like silhouette said, they do it because they can get away with it. In fact, it looks like they were getting off on it, like sharks in a feeding frenzy. It’s funny how the world is watching, but some people cannot even see themselves and what they do to others.

    Dear friends
    It looks like some people did not like the video clip to be exposed to the public. Whatever the reason, youtube has decided to delete it. What a shame!

    I have no idea where that took place or who they are, but neverthless, they should be exposed whoever they are.

    Dude and Nav
    I don’t really know what exactly did he do, nor could make out what they are saying or where do that shot took place, but it is obvious that it’s somewhere in the Gulf area. But this is not the point. The point is that those people have no right taking the law in their hands, even if they had a case. Not that I trust the corrupt authorities, they’re probably worse, and also need to be exposed.

    Well well it’s the first time for me to see that particular clip …but I have seen many others were the simplest human rights be abused …

    Dears we do not live in a perfect world where this is the extraordinary and the norm is that every person enjoys human rights! Sorry but you have to wake up and smell the coffee!!
    Human rights are being abused everywhere around us! And what do you do and say about it?? Well nothing much… most of the time it goes even unnoticed ..or if noticed ..disregarded!
    This is the utter reality which we do not want to face …
    So some left comments in here …what else ..did you try to correct any human right violations that you have witnessed or knew about? Or are we all just watching and commenting!!!

    Excuse my raw remarks …but my excuse is that I am new here and don’t know the norms and what is tolerated and what is not!

    I do agree with you that something has to be done. But, for me, this is the best I can do; I published it here and sent it to all my friends. And don’t know what else I could do. Do you have any suggestions?

    MaCHBoS
    The problem is that there is no guarantee that at the police station they would treat him differently. In our corrupt country, they might even treat him worse. but nevertheless, he should be taken to the police station, and whatever he has done should be dealt with it by the law, and not by the people who take the law in their hands, as if we’re living in a jungle.
