Person of the year
As for this year's winner, it was a close race... but the winner is none other than Ms. Ghada Jamsheer.
The main reason Ms. Jamsheer is the proud recipient of this award, is because she fought, and is still fighting, what others thought was a lost cause. Unlike the other so called liberals of "We have a right," which should change its name to "We have Money," Jamsheer did not side with the government blindly on every issue. She faught the religious figures that wanted to stop the personal status law AND the corrupt judges and officials.
Other so called liberals are just making a boogey man out of the religious extremists, in order for us to side with the big friendly government that will protect whats left of our rights.
Ghada can see through that.. after she won her battle against the deep pocketed judges, she faced their counterparts outside the courtroom that want to show their might against single women with children by calling upon more than 100,000 people.
To Ghada Jamsheer, from all of us in the "Joker's person of the year committee" we would like to thank you for what you have done.. and we would like to wish you all the best for 2006 and for the years to come.
