Why the Son of an Izraeli General is Speaking for Palestine

Why is this video important?

  • The speaker is a Jewish son of an Izraeli general.
  • The speaker was born and raised in Izrael
  • The speaker’s own 13-year old niece was killed by suicide bombers (watch from 28:20)
  • This is a Jewish perspective (albeit not a Zcionist version) on the history of modern Izrael
  • This is not a religious Jewish perspective, but a secular Jewish perspective

Put ego’s aside for a more earnest search towards a viable starting point…

Why do I use the word ‘Izrael‘ and Zcionism‘? Please click here. Continue reading

Imaginative-Reasoning:

Imagine a Chessboard, without pieces…
…or, a Dissertation, without a Thesis.

What if the Homeo had no stasis…
…the World’s weather no phases?

Try to picture the Arctic-Circle, with no Ice-Caps…
…and, all of the Animals extinct, not coming back.

Let’s think of a Planet without compliance…
…filled with hypocrisy, apathy and violence.

Be warned, these are realities yet to come…
…because, we forfeited Humanity being one.

1-God, 1-Destiny, 1-Purpose, 1-Plan…
…securing the welfare of our fellow man.

Just picture a cold Heart, with no Chambers…
…or, living our entire lives with just strangers.

Try to see in ya mind, Hustlers, without a grind…
…or, the 1-Eyed King deceiving & ruling the blind.

Let’s pretend that Poverty is at an end…
…that People selflessly give and spend.

Wouldn’t it be beautiful that a Woman didn’t have to sell her body, in order to seek a Man’s love…
…or, that a…

The Rivalry in Worldly Increase (Qur’an: 102)

Wake-Up

***

The mutual rivalry for piling up (the good things of this world) diverts you (from the more serious things),

Until ye visit the graves.

But nay, ye soon shall know (the reality).

Again, ye soon shall know!

Nay, were ye to know with certainty of mind, (ye would beware!)

Ye shall certainly see Hell-Fire!

Again, ye shall see it with certainty of sight!

Then, shall ye be questioned that Day about the joy (ye indulged in!)

***

This is such a brilliant – arresting – gripping verse (above)! The interjections and exclamations are deliberate! Like if you saw someone sleep-walking towards the fire, you would try to grab them in a jolt. Because you care. Wake up! Continue reading

Rules of Inter-Communication 3

multinational-handshakes-cartoon

“The rules for having a productive and insightful conversation across religious and cultural lines are not all that different than the rules for having meaningful interpersonal relationships.”1

***

I stand on one side of the space

– This “great divide” –

From the other, where stand you…

***

I, a part of my culture,

You a part of yours.

You see how representing our own we only ever appear

Apart. Continue reading

Your Remembrance

‘Ala Bi Dhikrika’ (‘Your Remembrance’) by Sami Yusuf is poetic in nature. I have deliberately opted for this piece of his to share (instead of others of his that sound like songs and look more like music videos) as this one reads and sounds more like (spoken word? Dramatic?) poetry – albeit in Arabic with an English translation. I am aware of the disapproval of music in Islamic discourse (See ‘On Music’ – a pending post). Continue reading
