Today's Gulf Times has a rather telling juxtaposition of stories in its courtroom news roundup.

A woman was sentenced to five years in jail after beating, burning and then fatally stabbing her housemaid because she "was unhappy with the Indonesian’s work."

Meanwhile, a man was sentenced to seven years in jail for "uttering blasphemous words under the influence of liquor."

Is the title a quotation from a sura?

"My father was a wandering Aramean, who went down to Egypt few in number, and there became a nation, great, mighty and populous, and the Egyptians laid a heavy burden on us....."

When both the U.S. and Britain are getting into political battles about immigrants, (especially considering that both countries' gene pool is blend of long waves of immigration,) it is sobering to realise how much it must take to make people willing to leave home -and often family -for the unknown, in hope that it may be better.
