I used to have unfavourable attitudes to the Muslims, but then then I went to university with some and found out they are just like anyone else. This did not make me think the so-called extremists were right in their actions, but I have first hand anecdotal evidence of what was going on.
What turned me to realise the Muslims were not brainwashed fundamentalists was when I read the letter from Osama Bin Laden to America. I knew then it was the US support for Israel’s suppression of the Palestinians that made the 9/11 attacks the only option they could conceive.
Since 2011 I have gone through similar emotional states to the Palestinians. For some reason those with power, such as Steve Evans and Andrew Symes at Rhondda Cynon Taf County Borough Council, are doing their best from my perspective to screw up my education at the most important stage – doctoral.
Steve Evans and Andrew Symes from RCT are withdrawing support I have had for years, such as computer software for my home study area that I need for my studies, and which was recommended by and independent assessor they sent me to see. Steve Evans and Andrew Symes from the LEA have been trying to change the people I work with and have build up trust and rapport with. Parts of the Assessment I had say my computer equipment should be renewed regularly, and because it is expensive they are saying it is not suited to my needs, when it was recommended by a tutor at a previous university who I went through a lengthy process with to pick it.
I have been made to feel like there is no way out, and suicidal because of this. UWIC is the only University in the world offering the Doctor of Information Systems degree, which I want,and Steve Evans and Andrew Symes from RCT Student Support know this and the fact I cannot easily move out of the borough. I have already completed the first two thirds of the course but I have had to suspend the final year due to the way I am not getting my support needs met.
In the same way the Palestinians have been forced from their homeland by the US-backed terror regime by Israel, I feel I might have to do the same. I am currently dealing with a university in London about putting a PhD application together so I only need to complete one year of study. This should hopefully mean I get my goal of getting my doctorate before I’m 35. I guess like the Palestinians dream of getting their homeland back, I can work towards getting the DInfoSys at UWIC without being hindered by Steve Evans or Andrew Symes from Rhondda Cynon Taf Student Awards section, but I think if I were to move to London then I could escape the terror from Steve Evans and Andrew Symes for the time being, and get my life goal of a doctorate.
