Those who betray the revolutionaries and say they are thugs and collaborators

who take commissions and have destroyed the country,

tell them what it takes to stand in front of bullets

what it takes to lose your sight

what it takes to be afflicted with a permanent disability

what it takes to die

Ahmad Harara [handwriting: Dentist] lost his right eye on 27 January,

and lost his left eye this past Saturday.

Ahmad Harara lost both his eyes while he was lighting the way for us,

and we must complete the mission.

We will become the light by which his eyes will see

the revolution as it triumphs.


Go out and support your brothers in Tahrir.


Acquired on the morning of 23 November 2011
