You Couldn’t Make This Stuff Up!


.

 

We, Palestinians are not choosing to make our struggle of liberation, a religious one. It has been IMPOSED on us. THEY are making it a religious onslaught.

 

 

Inside occupied Palestine, they are making it a full blown religious onslaught; claiming “God gave them the land”, working relentlessly to “rebuild” the alleged temple on the ruins of Al-Aqsa mosque, and engaging in our slow genocide to fulfill their “religious commandments”.

Outside of Palestine, their brethren are working non-stop to conceal that fact and pretend that “israel” has nothing to do with Judaism.

 

Inside occupied Palestine, this supremacist genocidal occupation would not have lasted so long if it wasn’t for the support it gets from Jewish communities worldwide, (many of whom work as sayanim), including financial, military, moral, surveillance, espionage, theft and transfer of technology, assassination…etc.

Outside of Palestine, their brethren work non-stop to conceal the involvement and the role of global Jewish establishment with all its charities, organizations, foundations and factions, and to absolve global Jewish groups who have unconditionally supported the genocidal occupation for decades.

 

From my research and experience, I could confidently say that the role played by Jewish “supporters” of Palestine have put the interest of Jewish “israelis” and global Jewish communities, up and above the survival of Palestinians and the liberation of Palestine.

 

 

In all my over 35 years of working in political activism, and of all Jewish “supporters” I have known, worked with, discussed with, or read for, I couldn’t count more than the number of fingers of one of my hands, those who truly support the full LIBERATION of Palestine, including RETURN, RESTITUTION, REPARATION and COMPENSATION.

Their “support” has been more of a hindrance and a burden, rather than serious help, in my opinion.

 

We are the only nation on earth who are not only not allowed to mention the name and ideology of our oppressor, but we are also demanded not to offend him.

Worse still, we are demanded to assure his security and to protect his future and to facilitate his everlasting stay on our stolen land!

You couldn’t make this stuff up!

 

Nostalgia


.

A chronic refugee, the bitter​ exhausting​ exile​ throws you into the depths of dewy dreamy aspirations​. You ran frantically searching​ for you​ between the folds of your exhausted, nostalgic memories, which ​you’ve lost​ on​ce upon a​ tearful night.

With trembling eagerness, you try to trace the features of a time long gone, and paint faces that had lost its miens, expressions and demeanor, to a deeply buried pain.

You sow za’ater seeds, during the wrong season, wrong time and wrong place, in faraway lands, amidst strangers who do not know its name, colour, scent or flavour.

You tenderly pick its budding leaves, hoping that its perfume would fly you away to a childhood orchard with an ancient house at the foothills, where a goldfinch dozed off in its nest, and a swallow slumbered on a almond tree branch.

You lovingly build a taboon, a clay oven, with your bare hands, hoping that the aroma of its bread would carry you away one day, to a distant land and a beautiful time which once was, never to return, or rock you to sleep, in the warm arms of your grandmother.

Springs of hope plaited with pain, gush through your anguished soul. Tears of grieving joy flow, so much so that for a moment, you would imagine that with a lump of terracotta clay between your fingers, a chunk of Palestine had been liberated.

Kneading, rolling, baking and stuffing za’ater pies in the land of Balfour, which has never recognized you, your history, your geography, your rights, your humanity or your civilization.

You scream silently: O you, if only you knew !  You would have seen the soil of my homeland boasting before the stars, that my ancestors had meandered over it. With a huge grin, the stars would respond: glory is all mine for their love, hospitality and kindness have surpassed my lofty skies.

 

Doomed


 

Unlike cooperation, confrontation leads towards destruction and annihilation.

Unlike inclusion, exclusion withers towards isolation and decline.

Unlike modesty, arrogance leads to loathing and resentment.

Unlike humbleness, chutzpah leads to fear and avoidance.

Unlike equality, “exceptionalism ” creates it’s own enemies and foes.

Unlike fraternity, supremacy will always face resistance and fierce opposition.

Unlike humanity, “chosenness” is nothing but an inflated bubble infested with its own seeds of self-destruction.

Every action has a reaction. Painful karma awaits but never abates. Laws of nature cannot be changed or destroyed.

 

Modesty and Chutzpah, Another Perspective


The spiritual aspect (referred to as conscience) in our human existence and experience is the driving force towards perfection; the ideal, the divine, the ethical, the principled, the whole, the altruistic, the constructive, the cooperative, the inclusive, the compassionate, the kindly, the harmonious, the “we”. This intrinsic built-in soulic wisdom and aspiration (called Fitrah in Islamic tradition) is impeded and granted to every human being, no one is exempt.

The material survivalist aspect however, is the driving force towards fulfillment of needs for survival and immediate gratification of desires, without consideration of consequences; the selfish, the indifferent, the malevolent, the exclusive, the destructive, the disjointed, the hurting, the callous, its only concern is the “me” and mine. This survivalist materialistic pull towards selfishness, egoism, self-gratification is also part of every human being’s experience.

The constant push and pull between the two poles and the strive to live by the highest principles (the divine attributes), is the ongoing struggle we call the Greatest Jihad in the Islamic tradition.

Whenever a belief system gets in the way, and/or the actions of an individual contradicts the intrinsic soulic wisdom, dichotomy occurs.

When dichotomy occurs, it is guaranteed inner peace is disturbed, thus, the misalignment of the soul.

In other words, when the high principles of the soul (the strive towards perfection and divine attributes) is trashed or terminated by belief systems, actions and/or behaviour, misalignment of soul occurs; turmoil festers, contentment lost, dissatisfaction assured.

Consequently, on the subconscious level, core self-esteem is diminished, self acceptance is negated and authentic self-confidence is declined, shame and self loathe are brewed.  Thus, in an attempt to regain inner peace and harmony, a process of perpetual ego inflation accelerates, seeking of EXTERNAL love, approval and acceptance become inevitable.

When our beliefs, actions and behaviour are in contradiction with the innate soulic knowledge, aspiration and desires (of being highly principled, good, ethical and compassionate, etc), then ultimately self loathe occurs, self respect vanishes, and deep self esteem plummets, thus the need for external fame, wealth and power for validation and acceptance.

 

 

​Misaligned souls, whose manifested actions are contrary to the inner high principles, become agitated, in turmoil, never at peace, and never contented. They continue to seek contentment externally to no avail, obsessively gravitating to spotlight and fame, seeking to impress and get attention with every word they utter, even if it leads to vulgarity and obscenity, yet neurotically monitoring every word said by others about them, as every word is perceived as a sword aiming at their hearts and necks. Even the mildest form of criticism terrifies them, and pushes them to the brink of neurosis and insanity. They are constantly in desperate need for external acceptance and approval, and insistently and relentlessly seek praise and admiration from others.

 

 

Gravitation to limelight, lust after fame, pushiness, developing chutzpah and what appears to be a extreme form of self-confidence -to the point of crudity is nothing but a facade, a thin mask to coverup and disguise deeply vulnerable and extremely fragile misaligned souls, filled with shame and self-loathe. Longing for approval from external sources is merely a symptom of fragility and dichotomy.

Ultimately, suspicion of others haunts them, delusion of intrinsic hatred against them becomes entrenched, and laws to impose love is formulated.

 

 

On the other hand, aligned souls, whose manifested actions are in harmony with its inner high principles, are at peace with themselves, blissfully serene and tranquil no matter what goes on around them or what circumstances they go through. They do not fear criticism, nor are they affected by people’s opinions of them. They do not feel the need for external acceptance or approval, nor do they seek fame, praise and admiration. They are happy the way they are, for who they are.

They are contented, modest, humble, accepting, satisfied, and profoundly confident within, no matter what others say or do to hurt or disturb them.

 

Community Standards, Excuse me?


Share

In this post I would share with readers the embarrassing truth about the fallacy of the so called Facebook (FB) “Community Standards” according to which they ban, block and delete posts and comments of people.

In the images below, you will see some of my posts (including poems) of which I was accused of breaking their “Community Standards,” banned, blocked or prevented from tagging people.

At the bottom of the page, you will see two images of pages that I reported because they were explicitly spewing hate speech against Islam and Muslims, but I was told by FB that these pages “do not go against” their “Community Standards.”

According to Facebook, calling Islam a “Dirty Cult of Pigs” and Muhammed the “Seal of Pigs” does not go against their “Community Standards,” yet these two poems, A Tear for the World and Evening Prayer, do. (!!!)

To Cut My Story Short


Share

 

Once upon a time, I lived in Paradise

Heavenly colours scattered all around

Angels prayers whispered in our hearts

Serenity cascaded as we plowed the land

Children laughter echoed in the valleys

Their rainbow dreams flew joyfully by

Figs and grapes breakfast O delight

Pearls of pomegranates, dessert at twilight

Up above the branch of a purple mulberry

Apricot and almonds we cracked all day

Building tiny homes of twigs and stones

In the shade of a jasmine tree

Poppies adorned the carpet, as we slid down

rolling with laughter over the hills of Palestine

Then, once upon a frightful night

Hordes of evil pushed their way in

In their armors and their arms

Smashing and bashing all the way through

Wrecking mad fury upon a land that’s holy

Havoc and mayhem, death and pain

Evil took over upon their reign

Natives in dungeons driven insane

Curios I was

I wanted to know

Who did this to my holy land

And why

Years passed by, my questions grew

A scratch to the surface, faces of evil I saw

The more I scratch, the more gruesome surreality has become

Lo and behold, upon one “ordinary” day

Sheer “coincidence” gives me a blow

A word so weird I stumbled upon

A key to a world, dark as Gehenna

“Neshamah” was the word

Meaning “divine Jewish soul”

A door opens before my dazed eyes

Curious, I look in

A worm in a can, I find, wiggling all alone

Another door opens

Curious, I look in

A can of worms oozing everywhere

Another door opens

Curious, I look in

A nest of wasps buzzing, whizzing and they sure do sting

Another door opens

Curious, I look in

A den of snakes hissing, seething and frothing blaze

Another door opens

Curious, I look in

A hellhole of demons with babies in their mouths

Grotesque figures dancing with skulls

On the alter of Lucifer bowing down

Is that a horror movie

Or a mere nightmare

O dear God, I dare to ask

My shaky voice trembles

Wake up… wake up, I frantically scream

Wake me up, dear God

This is not but a dream

Open my eyes dear God

Show me the way

Take my hand dear God

Help me go home

The darkest of worlds, now I’ve seen

Tell me, dear God, what should I do

My prayers, you’ve heard, since I learned to talk

You know me better than I know my own

A fighter for Humanity, my heart in Your Hand

Truth, Justice and Peace,

Beauty, Love and Harmony

On the side of goodness all I want to be

Palestine, Where to?

After the exposure of the utter hypocrisy of “israel wants peace” mantra, and with the failure of the “two states solution”, more and more people are coming to understand the true nature of the beast.

It is clear now the real obstacle for peace is the IDEOLOGICAL SUPREMACIST component in that artificial society, which would make the “one state solution” yet a bigger form of deception

Thus an exponentially growing number of activists finally coming to realize that Liberation is the only realistic and just course of action, which makes it the more urgent and important for us to focus on the most important issue before any other, namely the inevitability of the LIBERATION of Palestine.

At this stage of awareness, activists who have witnessed the decades of deception, and its affect on prolonging Palestinian suffering should make the FULL LIBERATION of Palestine their number one aim, to put it back on the table and to sow the seeds of acceptance for this incontrovertible lawful aim in the Western and global mind.

Full sovereignty of the Palestinian people over all of their homeland Palestine, is an inalienable and universal Right. It is my duty as a Palestinian, and the duty of every sincere supporter of Palestine to participate in the restoration and implementation of that Right.

On Peace, Violence and Forgiveness


Share

 

In cases of glaring injustice, where there is a CRIMINAL and a VICTIM one has to be careful not to equate the violence of AGGRESSION and CRIMES to the REACTION of the victim who only seeks to SAVE his/her life

It is a far cry from justice to blame and condemn both sides equally; i.e they equate the immoral actions of the criminal with the understandable reactions of the victim

Equating the instinctive response of the oppressed -who have been massacred, humiliated and dehumanized day in and day out for generations, with the aggressive and brutal acts of the oppressor is a severe deviation from justice

Morally speaking: how -for the love of God- could we condemn those who are being slaughtered when they try to push their butchers away?

Don’t we know

A man with a knife

Against his throat

Has the right to push His butcher Away

Some times the only way to sincerely help a criminal is by stopping him/ her from committing more crimes.

There is nothing more helpful or supportive to the tyrant criminals than teaching the man who has been constantly crushed and incessantly raped, victimized and butchered not to defend himself

We can not possibly equate the violent assault of oppressor with the self-protection of oppressed

The ACTION of AGGRESSION and OPPRESSION is NOT the same as the REACTION of SELF-PRESERVATION

Don’t you think that God would look with empathy, understanding, tenderness, love, forgiveness and compassion at those who are severely abused, brutalized, oppressed exploited and browbeaten, so much so that they are forced to react

“Beware of the plea of the oppressed, for he asks God most High only for his due, and God does not keep one who has a right from receiving what is due.” A saying of Muhammed peace be upon him

Our disapproval, teachings and condemnation must be directed and focused on those who initiate aggression, oppress nations, and commit genocide.

The permission to defend oneself (but NEVER to initiate aggression) is given to those who suffer the risk of annihilation and extermination by the One who created them

Who are we to deny those burning under tonnes of blazing missiles, that basic human right?

Who are we to judge their re-actions or intentions, as they tremble under the explosions of bombs?

Who are we to moralise with them as they pick up the limbs of their babies and loved ones?

“To those against whom war is made, permission is given (to fight back), because they are wronged; and verily, God is most powerful for their aid; (22:39-40)

When only the meek, good and vulnerable are taught to forgive, to be peaceful and to turn the other cheek, while completely ignoring to teach or coerce the bully and powerful to cease his aggression and to seek forgiveness, the scale of justice in a society would fall heavily on one side, no doubt favouring the aggressor and the powerful, thus creating total imbalance which inevitably means perpetual loss of peace and harmony.

Talking to the abused about forgiveness before protecting his life and rights, and while he is still under the boot of the abuser is nothing but complicity in the crime.

After stopping the criminal from committing more crimes, then and only then may the abused feel liberated and free to explore the avenues of forgiveness.

Defending and protecting the weak, meek, oppressed and abused by stopping the aggressors from his aggression is the foundation to creating a peaceful and harmonious society.

Justice ====> peace ===> forgiveness

“When a man who is honestly mistaken hears the truth, he will either cease being mistaken, or cease being honest.”

Change is one of the fundamental laws of universe
 
No change means stagnation, means no movement, means no space no time no existence, means ∅
 
The best evolved are those who are able to adapt to new circumstances, namely CHANGE
 
Like everything in the universe from the micro to the macro, every thing moves in orbits within orbits within orbits… such is a spiral… Thus our souls… Upwards back towards the Source ❤️
