Some political forces spread atmospheres of frustrations among the revolutionary youth, saying that their revolution has been derailed, sold, lost its glow, aborted in addition to other sayings so as to weaken their resolution and disappoint them. They aims at dissuading them from the enthusiasm of completing the revolution's goals and to achieve the dreams for which they took to streets in front of the people's rows.
They provided dear sacrifices for its victory and for the overthrow of the individual's rule. Their sacrifices were also for the recovery of the glow of the September and October revolutions and the luster of unity so as to correct its course, which has been disrupted by the destructive policies that were adopted by former regime. This correction cannot be achieved without establishing the modern civil state, where no party or group dominate it or become above the low and constitution.
I tell the youth not to worry because their revolution will triumph by the will of God, because they chose the peaceful course, and that is why God preserved Yemen and accomplished their goals for them.
It is now achieving its goals one after another in deliberate and rational steps. Despite the sacrifices which they set up through hundreds of victims, the injured and disabled, they remain to be simple ones in comparison to the great achievements that are accomplished by ending the power that started three decades ago with hopes and ended up loaded with corruption and tyranny deserving removal by God's power.
Ali Abdullah Saleh and his family departed without return and became part of the history. Nobody should tell you otherwise, even if you see some of them occupying positions here and there. They are positions that have no meaning from their perspective, after they lost the legality that used to put them above the law, the constitution and the statesmen who used to listen to them and devotedly obey them.
Some of the positions which they are undertaking is a price for the safety of the revolution, and they are harmless, as long as they abide by law and constitution, leave alone that the revolutionary youth from now on will be the observers to the state institutions' performance, to prevent the repetition of the previous mistakes and practices which all remained silent over them making the whole people to pay for them.
The decrees of President Hadi for changes in the armed forces which included some of the former President's relatives, ensures the youth that those are only a group of employees even if they tried to refuse. They had to accept and carry out these decisions at the end.
Yemen is on crossroads today, so we shouldn't remain preoccupied with the past that is ended on February 21, 2012. Yemen has opened a new page since then, and the wheel won't turn back whatever difficulties or obstacles are put before it. They should not distract the youth as the elected president, the regional and international sponsors are committed to deal with it and overcome it.
In my opinion the youth should dedicate their energy for the future.
They are to devote their different partisan and independent orientations to the future issues regarding the national dialogue, the constitutional, political and economic reforms , so as to contribute in real manner to the formulation of Yemen future, which is their own future. It is not the future of the political and social leaders who will direct the national dialogue. In spite of the appreciation to their efforts, their sun is about to set. It is hard to accept that a generation of the past would formulate the fate of future generations, because these generations are mainly concerned with their future.
On the other hand the youth generation cannot formulate alone the image of Yemen's future, because it is inevitable to make use of the experience of the generations who have lived half a century of the history of contemporary Yemen.
Since the breakout of the September 1962 and October 1963 revolutions, they have possessed wide experience in the problems which the Yemenis suffered under the theocratic, colonial, individual, civil, military, partisan, family, dictatorial and semi democratic rules. These are the kinds of powers that passed on Yemen over the last century and the beginning of this century.
Yemen is on a turning point today. There are many options on the agenda of the national dialogue, regarding the shape of the new regime, the state, the army position, the concept of the civil state, the judiciary position and other issues.
There are other issues realized in the popular observance on the President's performance, the government as a whole and the ministers as individuals. This is, in addition to the laws that the current and future parliaments will approve, outside the GCC initiative and its mechanisms, such as the freedom laws, the judiciary independence as well other items regarding the economic and administrative reforms. They are laws that will contribute to formulating the future that concerns the youth on the first place.
That is why the partisan and independent youth should pursue a serious collective thinking in devising mechanisms that help them in bringing up their visions into the national dialogue table to crystallize them and lobby for implementing them.
This requires setting mechanisms for arranging their efforts and overcome any sort of marginal disputes that are being intensively implanted in their squares nowadays. They should think seriously of these matters so that they will not be surprised with the holding of the conference while they are busy with their surface disputes, which the politicians can resolve if they have sincere intentions.
I imagine that these are the most important efforts to which they should direct their efforts on the coming days, so as to reap the price of their sacrifices for the sake of a civil state ruled by the law. This is a historical opportunity which would not be repeated for a long time if they don't seize it now, and Yemen will continue to generate the same problems during it and suffer the same dilemmas.
