Yassaar 3aneed (A stubborn left)

To sympathize with the poor does not entail glorifying poverty. It should motivate you to fight it.
To feel with the illiterate, should not lead to endorsing illiteracy, and labeling the educated as "elitists".
And to adore Che Guevara, should make you appreciate Ghandi even more.

Remarks inspired by the Arab "stubborn" (Z. Rahbani-style) Leftists.
