in response to reader comment: WHY DID IT TAKE CHAWKI SO LONG TO TELL MORE LIES

Submitted by Chawki Hammoud (Lebanon), Feb 23, 2009 at 17:12

Did Ms. Hilda talk about all lebanese being criminals and jordanian lie about their origin? ... I hope Ms. hilda clarifies herself . As I said before, I am not perfect, may be Ms Hilda is and doesn't anybody to die for her sins. The crime I committed would end up in a slap on a wrist in normal circumstances, but because of some ...like Ms. Hilda, it became something else. I admitted to be not so perfect . I have a B.S and M.S. degree in electrical engineering from UNCC at charlotte, Ms. Hilda can check it out . I graduated in 1992. I had a TA assistant for two years and I worked as an engineer as a contractor. I worked for more than four years delivering pizza while attending college.

Please don't summarize my life with a crime and make me a professional criminal. And please don't add to your ignorance and to your likes that we sent money to Hezbolllah. It is a joke .... As I mentioned, I love the guys, Hezbollah, they are our country's heroes. Did I support them, NO. I didn't have the money and I knew better. What do you think made me commit such a mistake if I had the money. I was between jobs and my wife was pregnant and like millions of American, I had no health insurance, THAT WAS IT. Bad Luck + Bad people like Ms. Hilda = screwed life. (chawki's formula)

Now, I feel safe in my country because of our heroes. I have a successful career and I make good money. I intend to start a non-profit institute teaching students the A-Z business of making bussiness over the internet. Untill now, I helped more than thirty people starting call shops. ... I have a life, not like you. .... Be a good citizen, tell your people we American want to live and let others live. I like the US and I always say nice things about America, with the exception of people like you.
I always teach my daughter who was born in the US and who is American citizen that America is a nice place and help her to fall in love with the US and be proud of being Lebanese and Muslim. My brother and his family are hard working US citizen and they live in the US.

With all that happened to me, I learned from my mistakes and came out to be a much better person. I didn't have time to feel bad and blame anybody beside me. I learned to be more responsible and have bigger ambition and I moved on with my life, something I wish Ms. Hilda had. While in prison, I educated myself about the voip business. I fell in love with this career
