The Paralympic Games, which took place in Tokyo, turned their pages, after Algeria was adorned with a lot of gold, silver and copper, thanks to male and female athletes. A country we always say that marginalizes the healthy from the superior, and hardly pays attention to those with needs at all, with evidence that the elite athletes and mathematicians, as they attended in silence, and participated in silence, also returned in silence, as if they represented themselves or a country other than Algeria.
Even citizens and journalists who tweeted criticism, attack and revolution against those responsible for sports and solidarity, due to their indifference towards this category of athletes, bear a large part of the responsibility as well. When the Algerian football team snatched the African Nations Cup in Egypt two years ago, they received it in a legendary way without a request from the authority, and no one now turned to those who returned with four gold, four silver and four bronze, and occupied the first place in the gold medals accompanied by Tunisia and Morocco at the Arab and African levels And they were among the twenty-eight large countries in the world, and their ranking was better than Belgium, Turkey, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Austria, Romania and Portugal, not far from the ranking of Spain and France.
When the football team won the African Nations Cup, and it still dominates the African continent with its impressive results, we demanded that the successful experience be transferred to other sports, and even to the rest of the scientific and economic sectors, by giving the opportunity to Algerian experts and managers from the Algerian community abroad. In medicine, engineering, agriculture, economy, industry, informatics and space, Algeria has brains and talents that are no less savvy, experienced and patriotic than Jamal Belmadi and Riyad Mahrez, and perhaps surpass them, and now that the “weak structure” has raised the challenge, and they have returned with precious metals, after the disappointments of the “healthy” who got zero. We can, without hesitation, demand the empowerment of people with special needs from senior positions, as well as from seats in local councils, the National People’s Assembly or the National Assembly and to hold ministerial portfolios, as human history has given us thousands of geniuses with special needs such as Helen Keeler and Asrif Armajan, as well as In a wheelchair, President Franklin Roosevelt led America to great military and economic successes.
Algerians cannot dream of a new and successful state, without the cohesion of all its people and giving the right place to those who deserve it, without paying attention to colour, race or physical structure. For him, the human being is marginalized because of an irresponsible handicap on the part of the authority and the general public, especially if he hoards talent, will and challenge, and does not find an opportunity to explode them.
