1- I am from Hijaz, Saudi Arabia.
2- I am currently studying in the US & fully legal.
3- Since I am an alien (according to the law), I am allowed to make grammatical mistakes and endless run-ons.
4- I do pick sides and call them "educated opinions." (I am pro-choice).
5- I believe that the number one worst export of America is "McDonalds", best export, on the other hand, is "Individualism". 6- I am becoming more cynical and less optimistic by the day (Need a cure). 7- I can’t tolerate irrelevance.
share important values after all: Both Saudi
and Iran are
notorious for locking up reform and human rights activists within the
vicinities of their respective countries. It is a simple strategy that works
well for both: If you are a reformist then you better be willing to give up
your right to leave the country. Come on now, this is a big
sign from God almighty that both Saudi and Iranian governments should be friends
instead. Don't you agree?
to the Office of the High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), 2
million Iraqis have fled Iraq
and now are refugees in Jordan, Syria and Lebanon
amounting to " the Middle East's largest refugee crisis since the
in 1948." Now, Jordan
along with the rest of the receiving countries are putting tighter controls and
refusing to take more refugees because of the fear from sectarian violence spilling into
their own backyards, the economic burdens and, of course, because “the Iraq story has to be a success story.” I have a question about the role and level of commitment of Gulf
Countries (i.e. Saudi, Kuwait, UAE,
etc.). Is any one of these big-mouthed big-hearted countries
interested in providing shelter to fleeing Iraqi families?
I apologize for not posting for the last couple of weeks. I have been overwhelmed by some matters that I need to take care of. In addition to stressing out about my own personal and school related issues, the news that has been flying around lately about Saudi Arabia’s possible involvementin Iraq are quite disturbing (got to make use of acquired weapons right?). The so-called increasing tensions between Iran and Saudi Arabia are self-inflicted and made possible through an unimaginable amount of greed and sick desire for territorial, economic and religious expansion from both sides. In addition, the dosage of Sunni is superior to Shiite and Shiite is superior to Sunni poison, abundantly injected into the minds of our populations, is at an all time high. How did we reach this level? What is it that we can do to stop this insanity? Or is it even possible?
AP Revenge-seeking militiamen seized six Sunnis as they left Friday
prayers and burned them alive with kerosene in a savage new twist to the
brutality shaking the Iraqi capital a day after suspected Sunni insurgents
killed 215 people in Baghdad's main Shiite district.
Hurriyah, the rampaging militiamen also burned and blew up four mosques and
torched several homes in the district, Hussein said. Residents of the troubled
district claim the Mahdi Army has begun kidnapping and holding Sunni hostages
to use in ritual slaughter at the funerals of Shiite victims of Baghdad;s raging sectarian war.
is not civil war, then I don’t know what is?
Update November 29:
Colin Powell: Iraq's violence meets the standards of civil war and President Bush needs to acknowledge that
NY Times, others to call Iraq conflict "civil war"
Gemayel, the Anti-Syrian Lebanese politician and Minister of Industry was assassinated
in a Beirutsuburb
today. Hizbullah has been threatening to
topple the government and seems to have blood on its hands.
Just a couple
days ago Nasrallah gave a speech and indicated that he will resort to
action against the government:
Saniora's government, Nasrallah said: "We will not allow you to continue
ruling this country, because you are an American government."
winners of the Iranian sponsored Holocaust cartoon competition which was launched
as a response to the Danish cartoons controversy were announced yesterday.
I looked through the competition’s website and to my surprise the
participants were cartoonists from various backgrounds. Reuters
reported that the organizers said some 1,193 drawings had been received from 62
countries. The cartoons ranged from outright denial of the Holocaust to associations between the Palestinian current status to that of the Jews in Nazi camps. Although there are some interesting cartoons in the bunch, I still think the idea was stupid to begin with. Anyhow, since I am a cartoonoholic, here are the results:
Since when the Al-Zawahiri loves or cares about Lebanon and what happens to it? Seriously, isn’t the ShiiteHezbollah worse than the infidels and the Jews (according to his/their convictions)? But we should cheer for him anyways, the guy and his army of believers will liberateSpain for God’s sake. After all, it’s a noble cause.
And while we are on it, Israel army, thank you for giving Al-Zawahiri the stage and for continually providing the Arab public a daily show of indiscriminate wreckage and disrespect of international conflict and humanitarian laws (Btw, HRW and ICRC are not anti-Israeli pro-Arab organizations). It is quite a popular show and everybody is thrilled about the peace process.
As Media Matters for America has noted, on the July 12 edition of his CNN Headline News show, host Glenn Beck identified the current conflicts in the Middle East and India as evidence that "it is the end of days" and later described the conflicts as "World War III and the impending apocalypse." Beck also stated that "whether youlike it or not, this is a religious war.
But why now, why this war? Well, here is your answer:
On the July 18 edition of the program, Beck referred to the recent heat wave as "the apocalypse" and after showing a photo of a cat born with two faces, Beck said it was "further evidence, oh, yes, that the end of days is approaching quickly."
This sums it up, attempts to stop the war in the Middle East are useless now (don’t even waste your time), cause the cat with two faces is already born.
