Retreat


.

Storm raging

Hearts in turmoil

Retreat, coil within

Kiss the land

Embrace the soil

 

 

Have you ever seen a bird die of starvation?

Trust like a bird

Flutter your wings

Sow a seed

Help it grow

Tend the land

The Provider will provide

 

 

In a bowl of purity

Mix some effort

Tsp of kindness

A dash of sincerity

Sprinkle more love

Grateful and gracious

Watch soil smile

A rainbow radiating

Sprouting divine

 

حنين


.
لاجئ مزمن، زمهرير الغربة القارس يزجك في اعماق الاماني الندية بحثا في ثنايا ذاكرتك المنهكة المفعمة بالحنين عن بعضك الذي اضعته ذات ليلة دامعة
تحاول بلهفة مرتجفة ان ترسم معالم زمن مضى وتلون وجوها مسح تقاطيعها ألم دفين، فتزرع زعترا اخضرفي غير موسمه ولا زمانه ولا مكانه، في بلاد بعيدة وبين شعوب غريبة لا تعرف للزعتر اسما ولا رسما ولا طعما
تترفق وانت تقطف وريقاته الغضة عسى بعطره ان يطير بك الى حاكورة بيت عتيق على سفح الجبل، حيث يرقد الحسون في عشه ويغفو السنونوعلى غصن شجرة لوز
تبني بيديك طابونا من الطين، عسى ان تحملك رائحة خبزه الى زمن جميل كان وما عاد او الى حضن جدة دافئ، وتترقرق جداول الامل المعجونة بالالم، دموع فرح حزين ويخال لك كأنما بال(طين) قد استرجعت بعضا من فلسطين
وتعجن وتخبز وتحشو فطائر الزعتر في بلاد العجم التي ما اعترفت يوما بك كتاريخ او جغرافيا او حقوق او حضارة ولسان حالك يقول لهم آه لو تعلمون، لرأيتم الثرى يباهي الثريا ان داسته اقدام اجدادي، فترد الثريا بل الفخر لي ان اخلاقهم علت عليّا

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.

 

Time is Now


.

Humanity now is Palestinian

What Palestinians have seen is a worldwide scene

I think you agree

Fasten your belts, hold on tight

The ride is about to go berserk

Bellies of usurers wobble on screens

Stuffed, wealth vulgar obscene

Money-lenders smirk as the world goes down

Financial collapse, foreclosure, disease, lock-down

Baby-killers run amok, invincible they feel, with egos grandiose

Splashing purity’s blood on Lucifer’s shrine

Their soul-void eyes, lifeless blackholes

Raging, flames of fury and hate

 

Against God Almighty, declared unholy war

Against Life itself, waged bombastic strike

Sucked life out of Life, starved the poor

Made sick the frail and killed the pure

 

This is the calm before the storm

Darkness to descend, followed by dawn

No ifs, no buts, and no delay

Gather your crumbling self, run outside

Rejoice in a mountain, embrace the land

Kiss the soil beneath your feet

Sow a seed, inhale a rose, hug a tree

Water with your soulful tears

Sprinkle with your powdered heart

A dash of agony, if need be

 

 

Let those who care, plant some more

Let those who have, share with those in need

Silence your words, speak with deeds

Bake a loaf, the hungry feed

A sip of water give to the parched

Be it your kin, neighbour or foe

It is time now, to be a Palestinian

 

Creator of Life is wide awake, I promise you

All loving, all patient, also all aware

Divine Intervention, a mighty blow

Awaits the vain who take life in vain

Enemies of life, plucked, once and for all

The wealth they’ve amassed burned to ashes

Kingdom of gloom perished to doom

 

 

Keep your calm, remain in sync

Contain your fear, tend love serene

The One in Charge won’t let you down

Light will shine on Earth anew

Flowers will smile, Meadows will sway

Butterflies will dance, children will play

 

Naughty Corona!


 

Halle-freakien-lujah

Here we have the “true news”, from the heart of the Jewish state:

“Cornoravirus is only for Goyim (non Jews) not for Jews/ “israel”

 

Childhood Songs


Out of the blue, I was sent this video clip of some old songs we used to sing as children in the school playground, in Palestine.

An emotional volcano erupted  

🌿 🌺 🌿 🌺 🌿 🌺 🌿 🌺 🌿 🌺 🌿

 

Taken aback, by a click of a thumb

Grabbed by the kernel of my soul

Sobbing uncontrollably

Gates of a besieged heart flung open

* * *

Nostalgic euphoria laced in melancholy

Spun me back in time

A little girl of Palestine

Dreamy eyes and a ponytail

Swaying with schoolmates

Hand in hand

* * *

Stretched out meadows and rocky playgrounds

Bashful sparrows watching from afar

Giggling children, running aimlessly, with eyes open wide

Buoyantly dancing as if in Paradise

Singing melodies for a school they revere

A loving teacher, a mother they adore

Humming grace for an enchanted land

Unholy Alliance


This is a photo essay to illustrate the process of poisoning minds, infiltrating communities, hijacking causes and Zionization of Muslim Clerics in the name of “Common Good and Common Ground”

We are supposed to put Genocide aside, Crimes Against Humanity aside, War Crimes aside, Chronic Injustice aside, and instead we are supposed to focus on “more important and more profound” matters.

We must find common grounds with “them”, befriend “them”, and cooperate with “them” for the common good.

The “common good”?

Yes, yes, “common good”, and “common grounds” between Jews and Muslims are so vital for mankind and the survival of mankind. They are in such vast numbers, like:

circumcision,

halal/kosher food,

wearing religious symbols,

having religious holiday,

burying our dead quickly,

Of course, not to forget the most important “common good”: fighting “antisemitism”, pilgrimage to Auschwitz and worshiping all pillars of the “holocaust” as revealed to us by Hollywood masters.

Forget about the ongoing slow genocide of Palestinians.

Forget about the destruction of Afghanistan, Iraqi, Syria, Yemen, Libya.

Forget about the threat to annihilate Iran.

Forgot about the planned extermination of these nations.

Forget about the millions of children who are being tortured, maimed, and slaughtered as we speak.

Forget about decades of chronic injustice.

Forget about theft of entire region with its resources.

Forget about charcoaled babies.

Forget about the burned mosques and desecrated churches.

and FOCUS!

Focus on the “rising antisemitism”!

Focus on making pilgrimages to Auschwitz and “holocaust” museums

Focus on remembering, commemorating and revering the “holocaust”, always, forever, and ever, and ever, and ever . . . and “never forget, never forgive”

Betrayal


What can be more treasonous or more poisonous than inviting a hard core ULTRA ZIONIST rabbi, (who supports the GENOCIDE of Muslims, and promotes the DESTRUCTION of Al Aqsa mosque to build the temple of Dajjal), to lecture and poison the minds of innocent, impressionable, young Muslim students, during “Discover Islam Week”, no less?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Manufacturing Complicity, A Case Study


Infiltration and manipulation of Muslim clerics and public figures is underway. The same evil forces who degraded many Christians into Zionists are at work. They twisted the universal loving message of Jesus (peace be upon him) into a warmongering, oppression-supporting and Armageddon-calling frenzy, and they are about to do the same with some Muslim clerics.

This post is a mere photo-essay to attempt to shed some light on the Modus Operandi of these evil forces.

The story starts with a Zionist rabbi on a mission

 

* * *

A rabbi who supports and admires “israel” and its murderous occupation army

 

* * *

A rabbi who considers Mossad operations leader, a legend

 

* * *

A rabbi whose favourite mentor has studied with the Jewish terrorist Meir Kahane

 

* * *

A rabbi who sees Palestinians as “barbarians”

 

* * *

A rabbi who cannot hide his racism and supremacism and sees Jews not as equal to other humans, but up and above the rest of mankind

 

* * *

A rabbi who reveres Jewish suffering above all other

 

* * *

A rabbi who is passionate about “israel” and its occupation army

 

* * *

A rabbi who takes pride in deceiving and ridiculing others and bragging about Jewish holidays which celebrates massacres and militarily occupation

 

* * *

A rabbi who sees Palestinian children as terrorists

 

* * *

A rabbi who campaigned to boycott Tesco because it stopped stocking stolen goods from Jewish-only colonies

 

* * *

A rabbi who campaigned FOR “israeli” products

 

* * *

A rabbi whose loyalty to “israel” is unwavering

 

* * *

A rabbi who advocates for the destruction of Al-Aqsa mosque and the building of the Dajjal temple

 

* * *

That rabbi then approaches a Muslim Imam or figure with the claim of “finding a common cause between Jews and Muslims”, while pretending to work for “love and peace”

 

* * *

The one and only quintessential common cause proposed was: Jews and Muslims to stand together against the banning of…. circumcision

 

* * *

Then, a friendship between a Jewish Zionist rabbi and a Muslim figure is forged

 

* * *

The friendship is then strengthened by some Eid gifts and goodies from the Jewish Zionist rabbi to the Muslim figure

 

* * *

Cooperation and friendship continues to build up between the Jewish Zionist rabbi and the Muslim figure, congratulating each other on their “good work”

 

* * *

Until one day, the principles of the Muslim figure weakens, and he begins to acknowledge the Zionist narrative of the supremacy and primacy of the “eternal Jewish suffering” by visiting Auschwitz

 

* * *

However, when the Muslim figure is called out about his cosying with baby-killers and warmongers, instead of humbly recognising his mistake, he seeks help from his Zionist rabbi friend, all the while ridiculing and chastising the Muslims who challenged him

 

* * *

When the Muslim figure’s allegiances to Zionist narrative is exposed, he lashes out against those who challenged him and calls them haters

 

* * *

He even calls them “trolls and conspiracy theorists”

 

* * *

Not satisfied still, he goes on blaming the victims of genocide while absolving those who have been destroying millions of lives as they  commit Crimes Against Humanity

The End

Heaven Pools


When I was swimming with my grandson the other day, he kept on trying to drink from the pool water. I told him to be careful and not to drink that water because it contains chemicals. He stopped, but he looked utterly disappointed and unconvinced.

Every now and then I would catch him trying to lick the water again, so I would remind him.

We continued playing for a while, then suddenly he said: I wish I would die!
Shocked I asked: but habibi why?

He said: Because I want to be able to drink from the pool when I swim, and in heaven pools don’t have chemicals!
