in response to reader comment: Changing the name of Barbers to Amazighs does not change their history.

Mr D'Souza,

Your comment is very strange as if the Berber people do have no right in our times to be free. Your logic means in fact that all societies don't deserve living in freedom, democracy and peace because one can always find some sad story in their past.

Fortunately for the Berbers, history of human kind dont' work that way. I have at this very moment in mind all of the Berber activists who after the so called independence from France, have been killed, harassed, forced to leave their country and some who are still in jails in Morocco just for claiming their language to be teached at school. May God, mister D'Souza, forgive you yours harsh words against people you know only from books from a troubled past of North Africa.
