(MENAFN - Qatar News Agency) Sheikha Moza further said" The most shocking is that some Arab countries fund and support hundreds of satellite channels that contribute to the flattening of the Arab mind promoting cultural literacy and manipulating the instincts of youth. This warns us about our losing bet with the future. Most likely only a small amount of the vast sum of money that is wasted on these projects is enough to fund and create many of the development programs that are capable of empowering the family. 'Yet these projects would not have achieved their goals without the languor of the Arab elites or inaction in their intellectual cultural and media roles to address the aspects of devastation and maintain Arab authentic heritage and the vivid cultural values" HH Sheikha said. HH went on to say " We can see now that the rigid approach towards cultural heritage and values illustrates an ignorance that is unaware of society's evolution and which breeds misconceptions that impact societal and educational values. In order to allow our heritage ?with its culture and values- to be a vital presence in the contemporary age we must reproduce this heritage in harmony with the spirit of the age. By this we do not mean breaking the past just as we do not mean jumping into the present instead it is a process of assimilating and harmonizing our values with the cultural and social conditions of the age we live in. Elaborating HH Sheikha Moza said "As you know the United Nations has summed up the concerns of humanity and outlined the need for comprehensive empowerment in the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) all of which truly focus around family empowerment issues from education health work and equality. However what hurts us is to see the showiness of goodwill and high cadence towards the humanitarian rhetoric which we have heard so often in the world but has no actual embodiment in reality when the actual reality remains mere sayings devoted only by verbosity and little acts. This is proved further by the meager support that states have given to the United Nations Trust Fund on Family Activities. And I believe you have also heard some exemplary voices who alerted the world to the high economic cost of family disintegration an issue that necessitates the intervention of states in supporting and strengthening the family's ties at least if viewed as a matter of profit and loss HH Sheikha Moza concoluded.
