The Earth's Anger,A bloody day in Asia

This is worset earthquake that happened in the world from 40 years ago ,I guess it is not an earthquake ,more than it is eath's anger ,yes our mother Earth is just angry from us ,from these wars, pollution and suffering in this world

People just in few seconds died by 100 thousands ,and still millions are missing ,and with Ignorance and poverty in this part of Asia ,a health diseaster can occur .those 100 thousands died from earhtquake and great Ocean tide , all scientists in Arab channels like Al-Jazeera said that that Eathquake was a result of a huge energy that was inside the Earth for many years( I am sorry I am not so good at Science and so on but this what I understood) ,I guess this energy was an anger for the Killing of Millions of Humans in Wars and Pollution

It Can be God's Anger ,Simply God can be angry for what is happening in the Earth ,the Earth which God made the humans to live in it ,to protect it and build it ,giving them the responsibility of the Earth

Here I recall a tale in The Holy Quran ,when God told the Angels about giving the Humans(Adam and Eve) the responsobility of Earth and let them live in it ,the first thing Angels said "They will destory it ,they will spread Evil in it"

yet God is Merciful , one scientist said that if that horrible Earthquake didn't happen today ,there could happen another worset quake and that the Earth has more than 40 years to have enough energy to make such earthquake

I am sad for all those who died and lost their beloved ones in this horrible day

Plz remember them when you celebrate the Newyear ,as this is the sad end for a sad year

Iseral and Moroco to follow Turkey

Turkey opened the doors for others to join to the EU ,I don't know how accurate is this news which I read today that Iseral and Moroco want to join the EU

Ok this is a real comedy ,for many things ,ok I can understand Iseral position surrounded by countries which hate it ," A democratic oasis surrounded by deserts of dicatorship" as some like to describe it ,but is Iseral isnot a part of Europe ,Well geographically it is part of Asia, despite Iseral has all the qualification to be a member in EU (seems to me better than many of the newly Eastern Europe countries) but there is one obstacle ,of course Palestine,Syiria and Lebanon ,in another words ,The Arab-Iserali conflict

the big laugh goes to Moroco ,ok first it is from Africa not from Europe ,second it is an arabic country , a member in the Arab League !!third a muslim country ,yes Turkey is a muslim country but not like Moroco ,may be Moroco wants to join the EU so it can the immegrants problem, so instead they go to Europe ,they stay at home !!

another thing about Moroco (I don't hate Moroco ,but I am an arab who loves her arabhood so much and such talk makes me sad) ,the EU doesn't need poor countries with its union ,what will it offer to the EU?? what about its membership to the Arab League?? Also I guess Moroco's style of ruling doesn't go along with the European style"dictatorship"

this is real comedy

anyway they are building castles in the Air because till now Turkey isnot accepted in the EU ,it is still negotation

Syria,Iran and the United states

ok yesterday Goerge Bush warned Syria and iran from interferring in Iraq , warned them both in way that reminds me with
a teacher that warns children in a class room

to go the subject directly as I am tired

with my all respect to the feelings of the responsiblity of the President Goerge Bush towards Iraq there are some points must be cleared ,I am an arab muslim who lives in The region and knows it very well

1-About interfering in Iraq internal affairs ,if these countries(Iran and Syria,the neighbours) didn't interfer who else will? come on don't tell me if Mexico had been occupied with another army or even have some troubles ,The United States wouldn't interfer for its sake and the sake of its people

2-About supporting Terrorism ,plz define the meaning of the terrorism and here I mean the terrorists ,who are they ? Bin laden 's associated Abi Masb ElZaraqawe ,well this is one big joke ,I mean how could the syrian and irani systems support it and they are against it for the following reasons:

-Both political systems are shiia ,the Syrian Assad system is a shiia Alowi system (Alowi is a branch from the 12th Shiia groups), normally Shiias hate sunnis so much .the both systems have done crimes against the sunnis in their countries(The sunni minority in Iran and the sunni Majority in syria ,In Syria Hafaaz Elassad ,20 thousand sunni Muslims were killed in Hamaa (North of Syria) in 1971 by bombing the city ,all the sunni muslim groups were vanished from Syria since 70s) may be Iran encouraged the Islamic revolution Concept but in under what term? The Shiia term not the sunni
also the religious moderate sunni muslims arenot fond so much by the shiia ,so imagine the radical sunni muslims
This is like combining the fire with water
ok and the resistence or the terrorists or the mulitants or whoever fighting the American Army and co. in Iraq are sunni muslims so how in hell they will get support from these two countries especailly?

ok I get it when there is Shiia rebels in Iraq with connection to Iran

2-regarding Syria ,the political system in it isn't only a shiia one ,but mainly is a communist one ,a real communist one (Hafez El-Assad was said that he didn't know how to pray and was taught to pray ) ,the Muslims in Syria faced human rights crimes ,thousands and even millions were killed of muslims so how Bin Laden or other religious group will get support from it and the blood of fellow muslim is still on the hands of the system ? tell me how?

3- If they interfer in Iraq well it is from their rights as they are neighbours ,and their people and countries' interests are above all considerations (all countries do so ,the United States is the first ),

I guess all this attack on both countries has to do with the american relationship with them then Iraq interfer issue

The U.S hates Iran since the revolution of 1979 as since that it lost the most important allie It had in the region beside Iseral(My best friend turned to be my worset enemy)

Syria was always in the wrong Side ,The favorite of the ex: U.S.S.R .its allie ,refusing Peace with Iseral under its conditions untill this year ,refusing to leave Lebanon , Syria is still in The Cuba ,Vitenam and China Camp ,and I forgot North Korea

G.W.Bush didn't bring anything new when he declared the Axis of Evil list ,they are the old black list countries

it isnot about terrorist ,that 's what I am saying

another thing ,to the comedian Iraqi minister who said Iran is the worest and only enemy for Muslims and Arabs even before the Islam ,sir remember the old arab saying ,speaking from silver and silence from Gold

Majda El-Roumi , a voice from the Arab World and culture

Majda El-Roumi , the crystal sound of Arabic culture ,she comes from Bairut singing proudly with the pains of horrible civil wars and hopes of bright future not only for her country but for her arab nation ,you can feel this if you understand arabic and listen to her song "Coming from Bairut"[Jay Min Bairut] from the lyrics of the great Egyptian Poet Abd El-Rahmin El-Abnody you will know what I mean

Majda was born in the year 1956 ,the year of the Suez war in Egypt ,her father Halim El-roumi was a music composer who lived with his family from long time in Egypt, she was raised with the love of Egypt along with her love to her own country,that why I consider her as an Egyptian , you can be an Egyptian ,if you love Egypt truelly , I feel that she is Egyptian espeacilly when she sings "the brunette of the Nile " [Samra El-Nil] ,this song is a beautiful description of Egypt ,a poem in its love and respect
She sang for many arab countries like Jordan ,Syria Etc,.... yet all these songs are not so powerful in meaning like the Brunette of the Nile ,I promise I will translate it one day soon

I feel she is Egyptian when she sings by our accent

Majda is an example of how the Arabic Woman should be from dignity and love ,strength and Sweetness

She works an ambassdor for the UN or one of its organiztions I don't remember but I guess she is ambassdor to the Arabic Culture and civilization

Majda, the chirstian who sings by Arabic ,the language of Islam


She always chooses her songs perfectly from Lyrics (most of them are poems written by famous Poets like the Nazer Kabney) and music (working with music composers like late Kamel El-Towalli and Gamal Salama)
The most romantic words and music you can hear it from her mouth

She is a mind-heart language singer in the time of Ruby ,Bossy Samir and other body language singers in the Arab world (sorry for mentioning those names beside MAjda as they don't desreve to be mentioned in international community like JU

If you want to discover another phase of Arabic civilization ,go and listen to Majda Roumi

sorry I can write better than this but I am busy
oh I forgot today is Majda El-Roumi 's birthday

Egyptian Feminist Nawal El-Saadawi to Presdency Bid

First who is Nawal El-Saadawi? http://www.nawalelsaadawi.net

of course this is her official website ,so you will find her speaking about herself from her own point of view. She is an old lady who admits her real age ,doesn't use any make up and her clothes are so simple for any woman ( seems man style to me) ,supports the Women's lost rights in the East because of the Eastern Men and she fights for the freedom of the Women and freedom of Expression ,she is against the United States and Israel ,her famous words "The East and West are fighting me",an old ex-communist, her opinions always contradicts with the State and the Religion of Islam and even some time Christianity ,went to jail several times and went to exile several time , she is a kind of -I love trouble -Lady

Ok my turn to comment on her , I respect some of Nawal's opinions especially about the freedom of expression ,Democracy ,Men, United states and Israel but I am not convince or respect her opinion regarding the religion or anything related to it ( I am a Muslim who respects her religion very much) also sometimes I agree with the people saying she always wants to be under the spot light

Second what is the meaning of this entry ? check the BBC news

Nawal wants to run for the Egyptian presidency race in 2005,the race which usually had and has only one racer that the president himself as the rule in The middle East and third world, a brave step especially from An Egyptian Woman ,the reason behind this isn't to win like she said but to make the Egyptian people Wake up from their long sleep and get back their stolen freedom ( I respect this )

yet her mission is a mission impossible one why?

because first She won't be able to do this because she will have to take the approval of the people 's assembly (The parliament) to be a candidate at least 1/3 of its members ( majority from the national democratic party ,the president Party ,the ruling Part) and the opposition minority doesn't like her and hate her----------this is from the official side

second if she succeeds and becomes a candidate the majority of the Egyptian People won't vote for her ,as the majority thinks she is a crazy old woman hates the Islam ,  Egyptians are religious whether Muslims or Christians ,her social opinions are shocking to the society

Third she isn't a politician or has an military expertise ,yes she understands in Politics but Can she take a political decision ? A military expertise is important especially we live in a region ,Death and War are parts from its morning( Magda El-Roumi's Kana)

The third reason is why I don't encourage her

anyway I forgot to say that this news isn't mentioned and is ignored completely in the official media ,only foreign ,Arab and opposition Egyptian newspapers mentioned it

It is brave thing from her ,but the Egyptian People are not sleepy as she says ,They are awake but watching what is going around them silently just as they used to do from 7000 years

Imagine a summit meeting between her and George Bush

The Origin of the name of EGYPT

Well to speak about the Origins of Egypt doesn't need a blog or journal space in fact it will need a whole servers .I am not an egyptologist or historian but I know the History of My country well ,today I will talk what Egypt ,the name itself means in Both Arabic and in English or foregin languages.

First the Name of Egypt in Arabic -MISR-,MISR in arabic Language means the Country with government, laws and order with a civilization also it means The term can also mean "fortress", or "castellated" , which refers to the natural protective boarders of Egypt which protected the country from invaders. This name can be extended as Misr El Mahrosa
in Holy Quran The name of Egypt (MISR) was mentioned several times I guess 16 times or less ,with its meaning in Arabic a country with Government

There is another legend regarding the Name MISR ,that MISR was the grandson of prophet NOAH who surviviedwith grandfather from the great Flood ,the legend don't stop at here but it reaches that Prophet prayed for young MISR and Asked God to Give MISR and his descedents after him to rule the land they would live on ,and not let time conquer them , this legend I read is not mentioned in the Holy Quarn ,so I am not sure of its correctness ,but I read this in old book of the Prophets tales written by Islamic Shekih used to live in the Middle ages ,he used old books from other and other civilizations like in Persia and religions like Judism and chirstianity.
what is unique about it is that the Egyptians are not conquered by time .

Also some people say MISR comes from an ancient term, Mizraim which may have itself been derived from an ancient Egyptian word, md-r mdr , which people in the region called Egypt.

Before we go for the latin and English word of Egypt I will stop at two names of Egypt in the Ancient times
in the Old Kingdom (the time of pyramids), Egypt was referred to as Kemet (Kermit), or simply Kmt , which means the Black land ,it refers to the rich soil found in the Nile Valley and Delta.
also sometimes it referred to as Deshret, or dshrt , which refers to the "Red Land", or deserts of which Egypt is mostly comprised.
Later, Egyptians referred to their country as "Hwt-ka-Ptah" (Ht-ka-Ptah, or Hout-ak Ptah) , which means "Temple for Ka of Ptah", or more properly, "House of the Ka of Ptah" Ptah was one of Egypt's earliest Gods. Egypt, as many people of the world refer to the country today, is a derivative of this ancient name. yes don't laugh but this is the truth, to pronounce Hwt-ka-Ptah, the Greeks changed this world to Aegyptus (Aigyptos) ,as Greeks had problem with the H letter ,they used it in their literature as the name of an Egyptian King , the Nile River and for the country itself for example in Homer's Oydessy and then it manipulated and changed to different languages

That is the origin of the name of Egypt whether in Arabic or English

The Syrian Proposal for peace

Ok from Two days ago or more ,the Syrian Foregin affair minister Farouk Al-Shar' annonced on behalf of the Syrian regime that Syria is ready to go back to the negotiations with Iseral with no conditions
an important announcement from the Syrian part ,followed by a visit by the Syrian President himself Bashar El-Assad (I like this handsome tall man despite being a son of an awful dictator)to Sharm El-shekih in Egypt (an excellent resort in Egypt ,visit it guys if you can) to meet with Mubarak of Egypt , for a complete discussions on the new proposal,also on the Iraq issue.
And of course Egypt for its role in the Peace process in Mid East, said it will discuss with the Iseralis and it supports Syria and many of this fancy talk

but what about the other side?
Well the Iserali Prime Minister made many statements first we have our own conditions then I don't believe them then whatever!!
then some news today I read in An arabic news site ( An excellent one in fact )that both Bashar and Sharon will meet soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ok how do I analysis what happened ,simple

The change in syrian attitudes goes to the attempts of Syria to look like a good country especailly after the Security concuil decision regarding the existence of syria in Lebanon
I won't say the americans has to do with anything in the changing of attitudes because Syrians don't give a damn to the U.S ,and even to the world not because the regime is dictatorship one but it is in their culture (some day I will explain this )
Yet syrians Made the proposal and they knew that for large percetage Iseral's Sharon won't accpet it ,a dipolmatic game

But I guess (my guess was right when I said Barghouti is going to be a candidate in Palestinian elections) that Sharon will go for the game this time ,even if it reaches nothing and it will reach nothing
for many things:

1-Iseral won't leave Gollan heights easily ,it was the old Assad fault that he hadn't make a real good army to return a part of his land so he can negotiate on stable land plus he didn't join Sadaat ,may be he would have returned his land if he had joined,

2- syria won't destory HazbAllah of Lebanon ,first it is supported by a powerful country then Syria ,Iran which also is from its allies,second the Lebanese people will hate Syria for this , HazbAllah is popular in Lebanon ,also Syria will lose the shiia support in Lebanon and it had already lost the chistian support in it ,Lebanon is the natural extension of Syria and its indirect front

3- the Water problem ,I know that already Syria is having problems with Turkey because of Water and it is main supply is Tabria lake and it won't make Iseral drink from it (I will check the reasons why )

this from the syrian side ,but I don't know much the Iserali conditions

anyway why do I guess sharon will go for it
well the man is facing a big trouble ,and he seems he won't have a chance for another round ,also his government is on the brink of destruction , not to mention his war-on-terrorism policy of killing and building walls didn't have any good result at all so why doesn't he try something new like Peace ? and with whom ?Syrians sounds a good idea

This will give general Sharon a popularity in some way or another in Peace supporters in Iseral so he can fill the gap after the problem with the Radical and religious parties ( also a diplomatic game from his side)

anyway time only will tell
(think twice about my guesses ,I was right about Barghouti :)

Jordan crown Prince Loses his title!!

Yesterday suddenly King Abdullah II of Jordan announced that his brother Hamza is no longer the crown prince .A surprise was the response of the Jordanian Street and the Arabic street in General ,and the surprise increased when The young king announced the reasons

Main reasons are the young prince wasn't free enough because of his responsibilities at the same time the title of Crown prince doesn't give him enough responsibilities or enough freedom to do more active role in the society !! Do you get anything !!??

Contradiction is obvious ,I know one thing any member in any royal family or even minister family in any Arab country has freedom then anyone else in the country

Another thing Prince Hamza was chosen to be the crown price despite it is against the royal constitution in Jordan that states the crown prince will the oldest of the King's male sons ,Before Hamza ,there was Abdullah (the King Now), Faisal and Ali ,then he and another one I don't recall his name

Hamza was chosen by the wish and order of King Hussein late king of Jordan before his death by days and some rumors said by hours .(Hussein once said about Hamza that he was the delight of my eyes)

why I am writing this ? well I am not convinced by Abdullah 's reasons , my middle eastern conspiracy theory mind says another thing and this thing was reinforced by the analysis of Al-Arabya news channel yesterday (the rival of Al-jazeera ,yet not strong like it) in indirect way , no can say the whole truth ,nothing but truth in Arab world

Ok Prince Hamza is just 24 years old ,works in Jordanian army ,he has just finished his study in either the U.S or The U.K ,I don't remember and got married from his beautiful cousin princess I don't remember her name but I saw their wedding in the TV
Ok this seems like a fairy tale but let's stop in one point ,Hamza works in the army ,he is an officer ,a good one and according to his position in the Kingdom he made some improvements in it (Al-arabya statement ,nothing else ,nothing more added except from my sick conspiracy theory mind)
Jordanian Army is not strong as the Egyptian or the Israeli or even the Syrian Army or the Saudi too
Yet gaining a good reputation in the army gives a high ranking officers a power among soldiers and other officers popularity that could gives them a power to change things or reach things in other words they can overthrow the ruler ( any military based country has this rule ,you can see it in reality in Latin America or in the great war between Nasser of Egypt in 60s and his defense minister Amar , a war that its main results was the awful defeat of Six days war)

Some well say hey ,is he going to make a revolution and steal the throne from his brother? guys this is just a theory
well he is a half brother to the king anyway his own dad ,got rid from his own father and took the throne ,it runs in the family
and it is not a new thing in the royal families in the Arab World , Prince of Qatar is an excellent example.

Back to Jordan ,now according to the laws the crown price has no political activity yet this isn't a holy law cannot be broken ,Prince Hassan ,the King's uncle and ex-crown prince ,had a great role in the political life of Jordan ,that till he left a gap no one can fill

Other interesting fact Prince Hamza is half American ,his mom is queen mother Nour (Lisa Halby) ,and he is being respected so much by the western world

Why do I am thinking in this way ? well in Jordan especially there were many attempts of Revolutions against royalty , many attempts to kill the king whether El-Hussein.

why do I care ? Jordan is next door to Egypt , I don't care what happens in south Africa

Falluja part 1

ok more than two weeks had passed and manny news and events happened that I wanted to write about it but I was either busy or sitting in front of the T.V mainly (al-jazeera) just watching and even wondering

where shall I start?

Ok from Fallujah or Falluja (I don't really the correct spelling for it , even in Arabic in the Egyptian accent it is diiferent from the Arabic word ) ,anyway the small sunni town in the Iraq seems to me is already giving hard time to the American army that day after day the Americn army declares that it will complete escalating its operations against what is called ( the terms I will mention are being used in the different media channels in the Arab world ) Terrorists or Mulitants or Resistence or even aliens from other arab and islamic countries (not from Outer space ,thanks heaven) who just hate democracy and envey Iraqi people because they don't have this imported by force democracy in their own Countries !! (I swear I read such opinion in the same words but I give it my touch)

Ok the Armerican Army said it began its operations to catch Zaraqwi ,but after one week of war on Fulluja with destructive results lots and lots of civilian people dead ,with broken houses and a great anger ,Mr. Zaraqwi escaped from the town to join his brother Bin Laden (doesn't sound a real Muslim act to escape from a battle your brothers and sisters in Islam are being Killed ) strange isn't it

so Zaraqwi escaped but the attack on Falluja continues , now If I amnot wrong more than 3 weeks the operation the furious Phantom is still on , and every day Hurra tv ( the American funded News channel in Arabic says the U.S got a full control of the town!!!!) and that the Army forces destroyed the resistence spots and no more evil coming from Falluja.....etc

sorry I am not an expert in War strategies or military stuff but is the U.S army taking too much time in Falluja with its great powers from weapons and equipment ,technology , air raids ...etc not to mention there is seige around the town and still from the reports that are declared the Americans are facing fierce battles in south and that they didn't enter the side streets of the town ,just the main streets!

This is not a full control meaning ,this means there is a resistence and it is big one

who will replace Arfaat?

Today the palestinian authority officails declared that the presidential elections will be on next january 2005 ,already the names of candidates began to appear to public since Arfaat was in Paris

Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazan), Rohy Fatouh( already president to palestine for 4o days till the elections), Dahlan ,Ahmed Qorei(abu Alaa) , Farouk Khaddoumi , Marwan Barghouti,Nabil Sha'ath,Yasser Abed Rabbo,Jibril Rajoub and Nabil Abu Rudeineh ,any one of them can replace Arfaat but it is not simple or easy

Already there are conflicts between the members of the palestinian Authority ,the PLO and Fatah most of the name mentioned ,except for Marwan Barghouti, has enemies from inside before outside

just few minutes ago the al-jazeera cut its usual broadcast to announce and broadcast that Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazan) was going to be shot in Ramallah , 5 or 3 from the security officers were killed , in way that made anyone feel that a storm is coming on the way

as an arab I can tell you for sure all the names mentioned except for Barghotti doesn't have the popularity in the palestinian street or even the Arabic street

I don't care who the United States or Iseral likes most but I do care for who the Palestinians will get real benefit from ,who will treat them well ,in civilized way ,doesn't steal their money or the money that is donenated by the rich arab gulf states( those countries gave huge sum of money in a way you can't it imagine for decades to help the palestinian people and the palestinian issue whether in Peace or before it ,but where is it?),a person really cares for the palestinian issue more than caring for himself

Abd El-Bari Attowan , editor in chief of the palestinian newspaper El-Quds that is Published in London (I hate this man and don't trust his newspaper ) said in documentary made by the BBC about Arfaat in title : Arfaat, the struggle for Palestine , that "Arfaat didn't made the palestinian State but Instead he made Arfaat State"

That 's what I mean

the Palestinian street doesn't trust the names of those guys who drive expensive black cars and live in fancy homes and send their children to be educated in Cairo or Beriut or even in the United states ,"where did they get the money for the big expensive black cars?"

Edward Said ,the late palestinian american thinker said in the BBC documentarty ,Arfaat ,the struggle of Palestine , that the popularity of Arfaat in the palestinian street goes to the fact that he didn't drive a black expensive car ,he didn't make a wall but him and the people like in the other Arab countries

this will be applied on Marwan Barghotti who is now in jail for many life sentences prisonin Iseral for accusiations that I don't believe it with my all respect .Marwan Barghotti will be officially canadidate for presidency ,his papers will be presented to the palestinian authorities by his wife ,the lawyor Fadowa Barghotti ,an example of a palestinian woman that is respected very much in Palestine, the opposite of Soha Arfaat

also this will be applied and don't be surprised on Hamas and Islamic Jihad ,the two famous militant groups in Palestine , no one can deny that they have a huge support in palestinian street ,despite being accused of terrorism ,but look from the other side (I am not defending them ) ,all Hamas and Jihad leaders live like the rest of palestinians ,share with them their saddness and happiness ,support them with their money ,most of the people who died in the clashes in the 2nd uprising their families were financailly suppported by Hamas group
Hamas and Jihad are both intelligent that they didn't enter the political officail life in palestine and here I mean the elections despite if they enter any election they will win with the majority but they didn't want to make a clah with the PLO

Yasser Arfaat as a symbol and as man

Well at last Arfaat died peacefully in Paris ,after a very long life full of many stages from Resistence to Peace ,from union to conspiracies ,from exile to home again

with this man's departure,an era in the Mid East and the arab World will end some how ,the Era of Arab diginty and union ,a product from Nasser rule ,it was and it is and will be forever a good dream but it can be accomplished in the dictatorship that is spread from the Gulf to the Ocean

Back to Arfaat 's life ,today and till now the Tv is opened on Al-jazeera mainly then on Al-Arabeya ,then on El-Manar channel (owned by Hazb Allah of Lebanon and I was surprised to find the coverage of the event by them was excellent despite the relations between the palestinian authority and the lebanese Party is somehow not so good )

All channels are broadcasting things about his life ,for me as young generation it is for the first to hear it and it was surprising for me ,for my parents it wasn't something new ,they already know about it

in Brief this man's life can be turned in to a successful tv-series or a movie full of drama ,action and even comedy,it was full of contridictions

Beginning from his childhood ,brought up far way from Home in Egypt ,then joining the resistence group of Fatah (sorry for the spelling ,it may be somehow difficult to write certain letters from arabic in to English ) ,the Organization of palestinian liberation

during the 50s the organization hadn't too much support except from Egypt may be ,Jordan(a huge portion of population in Jordan is palestinian ,especailly after the six days way in 1967) and syria ,other then that most arab world was under a foreign rule

in the 60s the name of the organization and Yasser Arfaat's name began to appear to arabic public ,it was the nasser Era ,the dreams of the Arab union and Arab dignity after years of humilitaion in the Arab Land were the main characteristic for this time,
as I said before I got nothing against these dreams in fact for me it isnot just an arabic dream (a song was made having the same meaning from few years ) but it is a hope that can change in to wonderful reality ,and changing it in to reality cann't be in words ,or through a foreign support ,it comes from us as arab people

anyway back to Abu Amar (Arfaat's nickname) ,these arab dreams became dreadful nightmares after the six days war, all the hopes and dreams of better life that was given to Arabs by dictators like nasser and El-assad of syria was all illusion anddeception yet one battle gave hope to the Arabs again and confidence in the arab people

the dignity battle as it was called , a battle between 100 palestinians led by Yasser Arfaat and the iserali aramy ,the name of Yasser Arfaat associated with the Arabic dignity for many people who lived that event ,Dignity and resistence he symbolized them for many people till now

The palestinain Issue before Arfaat I feel it hadn't the same importance for the world ,in fact I guess all the operations against Iseral which is considered as Terrorist acts ,was to make the world pay attetion to the Palestinian issue ,till now many people call Arfaat a terrorist but many terrorists in the world became politicans and peace makers now , Lalia El-shahid for example the representative of Palestine in France ,used to hijack airjets in the past ,and more then this Mr.Ariel Sharon is a good example

Arfaat in the arab world isnot so popular in some specific parts like Kuwait( he supported Saddam Invasion to Kuwait along with late King Hussein ) ,this Ramdan in this year ,the first private own tv channel in Kuwait made fun from Arfaat

in Lebanon (lebanese people don't forget the attempt of some palestinians among them Arfaat to take their land as a subsititue for palestine ,causing a civil war and their existence in Lebanon was the so-called reason for the invasion of Lebanon by the Iserali army with its defense minister at that time Ariel Sharon ,causing wounds and troubles till now lebanon lives in ,a ghost of the past always appears for lebanese people when the talk about cancelling the right of return to the palestinian refuges ,the lebanese are ready to fight the whole world for it,

in Jordan ,some people hated him ,despite the fact that large percentage of People in Jordan are Palestinians including Queen Rania ABD ALLAH ,but also the traces of the black september are there, black september in the late 1970 or 1969 (can't remember) ,when Arfaat and his companions began to act in Jordan as if it were their land .working with their freedom forgetting the King and the people who host them

even in Egypt the land which he raised in and lived his childhood and youth and became familier with the world of resistence and war (he joined the Egyptian Army when Palestinians had the rights to join it,then he joined the liberation organization ) ,many egyptians remembered (including some members of my family ) he was so happy when president Anwar El-sadaat was killed ,he was among the arabs who refused the Peace with Iseral at that time despite the fact that he would have took from them much more land in that time ,than what he had took now ,in the insults against Egypt and the Sadaat were too much to any one to forget .

I guess Arfaat's problem is that he concentrated more on the Arab -Arab conflict then with his conflict with Iseral and the world

He used to call El-Sadaat as Traitor then after 20 years he signed the Peace agreement with Iseral and took just a few pieces from his land !!

from support of USSR to the support of U.S

anyway there were 6 attempts for killing him ,one was from a group his own companion !

I consider Arfaat as an arabian legend in contridictions ,brought up in exile ,then back to home to die outside it ,then to funeral in another country then to burial in home with a bunch of soil from El-Quds (Jerusalm)

tomorrow will be the funeral in Cairo from the EL-Gala Mosque ,with an offical military funeral ,tomorrow will the 12th of November (Youm El-Quds) ,jerusalm day ,half of AQSA Mosque (third holy place for muslim in Jerusalm) was burned in 1968 by a radical Iserali

Strange isn't it!

for turth I felt more sad for Shekih Ziad of UAE then Arfaat , Shekih Ziad Presented the Arab Dignity and courage then in Arfaat

anyway God Bless them both and may they rest in Peace

Well President Arfaat is dying in Paris as you all know from the news ,resons behind his deadly illness still remains a secret between the french physicans treating him ,despite the reports and the news reaching to us in the Mid East and the Arab world confirming that he was poisoned by a slow poison in his food ,this was confirmed in indirect way by the annoucement in the Arabic media that there was an investigation in Ramallah in the Arfaat's headquarter with all the people who responsible with Arfaat's food and medicine

the Question here rises who poisoned Arfaat ?
the first answer can be the Iseralis but the Iseralis could have got rid of him from long time ,but still they are number 1 suspects especailly the threats of Sharon and his minister by killing Arfaat
the second answer appeared yesterday and the day before it when Soha Arfaat (his wife whom I was surprised to see it again after news they were divorced!!) accused the Arfaat's palestinian authority officals that they were iniherting him and wanted him dead ,accusation that had many meanings

yet the Palestinian street didn't care too much for her statement
for one reason they don't respect her as a wife ,leaving her husband away for 3 years with no support even in a television support or something ,they considered this act as escape ,the palestinian woman suffers everyday and she doesn't complain
while she is living in paris with the money of the Liberation Organization and the money of the Palestinian people
"where was she?" a palestinian woman said on the al-jazeera yesterday in a comment on what Soha said

for another reason ,Soha is being accused with other Palestinian authority officals from many parties with corruption and stealing the money of Palestinian people

But I am convince that if he was Poisoned ,the Iserali governmet will be behind it,he is not the first or the last palestinian killed by iserali government

anyway the funeral arrangement is beginning arranged right now in Ramallah for where he is going to be buried ,well sure not in jerusalem as Iseral refused (is there any more humiliation then this).but there is still a hope by tomorrow's visit of the Egyptian Foreign affairs Minister with other important officails (there was a romour that he is going to be buried in Egypt)

I guess and I expect the announcement of death or even the funeral will be in the next saturday not on Friday for two reasons

1- Next friday is considered in the Islamic lunar celander is last friday in the holy month of Ramdan ,the last friday as we call it ,it is important day ,and clashes can happen between the palestinians and iseralis after Friday prayer in jerusalem (Palestinians convinced that Iseral government poisoned their leader)

2- and I guess this reason is much more important that the date 12th of novemebr is the Quds Day (jerusalem day),

domenstrations could happen in this day in Palestine against Iseral and its policy

anyway the question here is what is going after his departure?

El-Sadat : The actor and the Politician

Golda Mier ,the late prime minister of Israel once said about him

" he doesn't deserve the Nobel Prize for Peace ,he should have been awarded with the Oscar Best Actor"

She was speaking about the late Egyptian president Mohamed Anwar El-Sadat .This phrase I always think about it and wonder about its meaning as for one thing you must all know in the Arab World there is a rule which is when a king or president rules ,he erases what had done by others before him and pretends that history begins in his era ,believe me it is a basic rule, so I can't judge on man and say he is an actor or peace maker ,Anwar El-Sadat till now is from the villains in the Arab World ! believe or not Saddam is popular than him in same parts!

Anyway I think she meant that he is a good politician as politics is the fine art of acting and lying for great purposes as it is known in the Arab World so the equation a good politician is a good actor ,yet I couldn't figure out did she say it as admiration or hate? anyway many questions I had about his man who is being until now cursed and blessed at the same time.
The answer was in the man and his life and here is some interesting facts I guess most of you don't know about it :

  • El-Sadat was born in 1914 in Monfya in Delta of Egypt famous of its intelligence and sometimes wicked people,he was born in a very poor poor family, he wasn't ashamed of it like Nasser ,in fact he was the first to appear on TV and speak about his poor childhood ,for Egyptian father and Sudanese mother "the second president to have Sudanese origins".
  • El-Sadat used to a spy in Nazi spy ring in Cairo in WWII,this spy ring had other celebrities like the famous English Patient Count Laszlo de Almásy "don't believe the novel or the movie", and the famous belly dancer in 40s Hakmet Fahmi . He was found guilty and went to jail for the first time.
  • He really admired the German forces at this time not for their ideology of Nazism but the its military forces . He admired the famous Nazi war generals and this was obvious when he changed the uniform of the Egyptian Army to become similar to the Nazi army "Legend says that he brought some of those generals to the Egyptian army before 1973"
  • He joined the spy ring because he hated the British existence in Egypt like many Egyptians who love their country and supported Germany including King Farouk
  • He was accused by the murder of Amin Othman , a minster who supported the British existence ,and he went to jail the second time,this time was harder then the first "He did not regret it"

May be then you can judge what he was an actor or a politician
I recall here what in the mad man of Libya Elgadfi said in one the Arabic summit :

"this man had the guts to deal with Israel on the table in the light ,while all of you( Arab kings and presidents) deal with it under the table in the dark with out your people knowledge"


In the end

" I am An Egyptian peasant ,born in one of the villages over the banks of the immoratal Nile River where Time was born ,I am Mohamed Anwer El-sadat"

from his own autobiography in searching of Identity

Terrorist groups announced Responsbitiy for Blasts in Taba

Yesterday the France Pres agencey declared that it had received a call from a group caling itselfl "the International Islamic group" saying they were behind the Blasts in Taba
then in the morning ,Al-jazeera annoucned that A group belongs to Al-Qaeda to have a responsibility of the attack in a statement published in of those forums that suddenly appear on the net
yet if you look closer to the satement ,strange word stopped me they used the (Gazoa) a word that the Qaeda use in its statements always ,what is strange is this Word means Battle in Arabic is used only and I repeat only in the Description of the battles Prophet Mohamed(PBUH) particpated in ,only ,this is their only use ,and no one over the arabic or islamic history used it till the Al-Qaeda used it,it is not acceptable to Be used in arabic with anyone accept Prophet Mohamed (PBUH)
this is a little remark many people in Islamic World noticed
if they are experts in Islam ,they won't Use it
see what I mean ,they Just pretending

Explosions at Hilton Taba

Al-Jazeera Tv now is broadcasting the new of the Explosions that Happened in Hilton Taba at midnight, 30 Iseralis were killed in the blast and more than 129 ( and the number is exceeding) from different Nationalities among Egyptians and British are injured ,The Egyptian government asked Israel to send Medical Aid because the Sharm Sheik Hospital is far away for the place ,that till the ambulances or any help comes from Sharm ,the situation will be worse, the Israeli Government asked Its Citizens in Sinia to leave it immediately, more than 40000 Israeli came to Taba to Celebrate some Religious feast or something I don't know what is it Exactly
What I know that I know my professor's wife ,daughter,son in law and grand son are there ,spending the week end in Taba in the Occasion of the 6th of October war,I wish they are fine.
What I know is the purpose of this terrorist act is not to kill Israelis, but to Kill the Egyptian Economy ,here is the impact ,Sinia is a great tourist attraction ,and the new season is already starting and it is starting good ,Tourism is from the main resources to the Egyptian Economy ,,one bombing like is capable of making tourists run away from all over Egypt by Tomorrow's night ,just like the Luxor terrorist attack
visit El-Ajazeera channel ,
believe Iseral isnot the target but it Is Egypt

I made War for Peace

"I made war for Peace " a phrase said by the late President of Egypt Mohamed Anwar El-Sadat in one of his speeches in the celebration of the anniversary of the 6th of October 1973 or as we call it in Egypt the Great October War or like our brothers in Syria call it the Teshrin War"Teshrin is October in Syria,Lebanon and Jordan" or like the rest of the World know it by its hebrew name"yom El-Keppor",by the way yom in Hebrew has the same meaning in arabic that is The day. I look to this phrase and se how that man had an excellent future vision,you know why ? well look to the Middle East now and you will know why
In this day from 31 years excatly at 2 o'clock pm by Cairo local time ,the Egyptian and Syrian armies launched their Attacks against the Iserali forces in the Sinia and Gollan Hights that were taken and occupied in what is known internationally by the Six Days war or what is know in the Arab World of the Reverse of 67"Reverse is the word Gamal Abdel-Nasser used instead of defeat to absorb the anger of the Egyptian People"
I won't speak about the dear syrian front for many different reasons ,first I am not syrian nor have the complete knowledge or information about what happened there yet I am trying to figure out why they didn't get any further inche in the Gollan other than the Konytara even though they had better and advanced weapons at that time( the favorite ex-USSR ally in the region) compared to the Egyptian Army which fought with the remainings of the Weapons of the six days war and what the USSR though to be suitable for an ex-ally in the Region( El-Sadat dismissed all the russian war experts before the war after the correction movement he made to get rid from the remaining of the God Damn Nasser Era"
Egyptians at that day crossed the Suez cannal to the Eastern Side of the Canal ,at the same they crossed the fear that Nasser's Era put in their heart ,they crossed the Canal to get their dignity back again ,their Dignity that was raped not be the Iseral but by the man who they put their dreams ,their faith and their hopes in , a man called Gamal Abdel-Nasser
We didn't fight in 1967 and that why Egyptians as I was told felt so bad and angry ,in just six day Iseral took Sinia ,The Gollan hights and Jerualsim
Cities of the Canal (Port-said,Suez and Ismalyia) were completely destroyed by the Iserali air Forces, till now the Egyptian Governments since that black year refuse to announce the number of civilians that were killed in Suez Canal Cities because they know Egyptians will blame the Nasser's Era before they blame Iseral.
Till now 300,000 Egyptian Officers and soliders Prisoners of War are missing in Sinia and Gaza strip( was under the Egyptian Rule at the time),of course this the offical number ,romours say it is exceeding than that number especailly if you add to them the unknown number of the Egyptian soliders that were killed in Yeman war.till now families across the nile valley don't know what happened to their sons except they rest in peace in mass graves across Sinia,Iserali Forces Killed them despite of the international treaties,they killed them and they were already dead by the orders of Nasser and his War minister the playboy of Egyptian Army Amar,Egyptian Governments till know refuse to open the case of the Egyptian POW(prisoners of War)not because Ariel Sharon is one of the primary iserali generals who gave the orders of killing the POW but they know very quietly that Egyptian People will Curse Nasser and his Era before they curse Areil Sharon
and I guess that why regained our land completely in war and peace with Dignity and Victory compared to the Syrian front ,because till now syrians blame Iseral and Curse it day and night and they forgot to blame themselves first.Egyptians from the first week of the defeat knew that we desreved the defeat , from the first week of defeat and war ,Nasser rudely began his war with Amar on whom will rule Egypt , Giza saw another war between them ,ended by the victory of Nasser
El-Moshir AbdEl Hakim Amar ,Nasser soul twin ,another upper Egyptian like Nasser ruled the Egyptian Army ,he ruled as mayor in a village ,so popular among the officers that gave him power and dreams to rule Egypt ,especailly he became the army hero no.1 after transforming it to some kind of social Club not a military establishment,Amar was a major I guess ,just a major when he promoted to become moshir(a title that is only available in the Arab World,it is great than General)
with no expertise at all at anything except Women and Drugs
That Man Amar gave Iseral its greatest victory when he gave his orders to the egyptian army in Sinia and Gaza to withdraw with no a plan at all ,just to get out of there ,the worset withdrawl plan ever made in modern history and I guess in the human history ,well there wasno plan at all,Amar had his supporters in Egyptian intelligence ,army all of them wanted him to be the Pharoah of Egypt instead of Nasser and Nasser already knew what happened ,there was a silent war between them while Iseral was preparing to its great war.
Nasser, Moses' pharoah of the modern age ,he though he were a God yet he was the satan of the age ,Jails and prisons were there for anyone who dared just to thought ,the pharoah who gave the hope and dreams turned to be illusions and nightmares,the greatest dictators of the East
All the problems of the Arab World now have origins in his Era,even the what so-called Islamic Terrorism was originated in his Jails ,Ayman ElZaohary ,the U.S wanted man no.2 was raised in his horrible Jails ,where hundred of thousand Egyptian were Killed.
on this day from 31 year, Nasser(Pharoah of the modern age) was drowned in the Suez canal when Egyptian soliders crossed the canal exactly When Moses and The Jews crossed the Red sea.
Egyptian Soliders made Victory at that day that dazzled the whole World ,and titles of the newspapers around the global witnessed this from 31 days simply because they pulled the fear and put faith and hope in their hearts.
They made victory by War as The Egyptian Army took the moutains' crossing in the Middle of Sinia ( that is the heart of sinia ,Who has power over it ,owns sinia completely)this beside the great loses Iseral had from destroying the Barlief Legendary defense line and other things , despite the adverse attack that was led Ariel Sharon I guess in the 12th of October ,and it wouldn't happened if it wasn't for Our Kuwaitis' brothers bad experience with War (first time they ever joined a war unfortunaly).
Then they made a victory by Peace,when President (whom I must speak about some day with God's will) said he was ready to Go to Iseral for Peace ,he went to Iseral as as a victorius leader not like a defeated one like Arfaat
I am not from 6th October war Generation ,in fact I am so-called the Peace Generation or the Americanized Generation yet I am 100% Egyptian who feels this day in her heart and I know if it wasno for this great War ,there will be no Peace
I think I wrote too much ,yet If I have more time I will write more and more
But I have to go
and before I leave I send all greetings ,love and Respect to all The Egyptian who died at this day of Glory in order to Get Egypt's dignity again
Peace upon you

The other side of the world

I was going to write about the great war that led to peace for the first time and I think the last time in the middle East when I decided to change the subject ,to another one and it is obivous from the title,I have another blog in Stardock's joeuser blog service yet I am not active in it as this one(as if I am active in this one also, but I am trying the honor of trial is enough for me:))anyway I found in joe users 's blogs full of strange false stuff against Islam and when I tried to correct it ,some Americans opened their fire one me( I use some because they don't represent all the Americans),I released that I was the one Muslim in site ,yet I had a chance to see how they think and see Islam
well I got a good idea ,simply they hate Muslims,Islam and the Arab world altogether , in another simple words they won't feel sorry fo,why not? They have a complete a false image in their minds about the Islam,why not ? The American Administration and media made the War on terrorism ,a war on Islam , the religion of more than one billion across around the global became a target for everyone and for what ? For economic reasons ,OIL is the easiest form
American administration and Media created a new threat for its own people after the fall the USSR, a threat that was made orginailly in The C.I.A the islamic fundamentalist threat ,the green threat (they don't know that Islam hasno specific colors or even signs )
they made a threat from their own people ,there are many American Muslims who helped in building the United States'Glory ,man like DR.Farouk ELBAZ in NASA ,a name that is mentioned in Apollo's journies ,DR.Ahmed Zoual, a Nobel prize Winner
I live in the middle and crossing of the Old world and I watch the new World ,because I found out that the decisions taken in the OVAl Office has an effect on me
then 9/11 came with it's tragedies that still happenning,(for truth it was a horrible accident ,I was going to lose two I know personally in it),and then every person became an expert in Islamic Affair and he or she doesn't know anything except reading a false article here or there
What do you know about the Muslims and arabs ? Their history? Their land ? Their life?Their conditions now socially?Politically?Economically?Their traditions?
zero,except what you see in Fox ,CNN and other TV channels
I read in many sites strange things about Islam and Arabs ,things make laugh and things make me angry
Many people in the internet using bad language with a lot of hatred,yet I can't be like them because my religion the real ISLAM ordered me not to be so
THE Bush's administration created a world of two sides one of them is the Arab Islamic world
I am really amazed to see how the American politicians come to our TV channels and newspapers saying that United states respect the Islam and Muslims
while in homeland it became no.1 target for hate
Millions the American Congress is paying to support the HURRA TV CHANNEL to make it just a popular or even watchful TV channel (they cannot compete with El-Jazeera or EL-ARABYA news channels ,especailly El-JAzeera is making an english spoken channel)
another last thing
you have to respect the others
you have to listen to the other because may be the other is right ,may be you are right ,may be one of you will be right after 50 years
Peace upon you all

Arabs and American administration

November is coming and with it comes a very important american presidential elections not only for the americans but also for the whole especailly us the Arabs and Muslims,as no one can dany that the last four years of Bush's administrations were the worset years for the Arab and Muslim World from a very long time.
Yesterday I was watching the Hurra channel ,which the amrerican news channel in Arabic funded by the American government to enchance the picture of United states in The Arab world ,and I saw the Speech of Kerry the democractic canadidate saying something attracted me and it was 95% right that is since the war of Iraq the popularity of United States is decreasing ,while the popularity of Osama Bin Laden is increasing even in moderate and America's allies in The middle East region like Jordan and Turkey,the man's words are true 95% while 5% are not ,why is that? I will say immediately, simply people in that region the Arabs whether Muslims or not don't like and even hate the American Adiminstration and I repeat THE AMERICAN ADMINISTRATION not the american people NOT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE I repeat it again,from avery long time not because The United States supports Iseral ( all western World support Iseral ,France our biggest friend in Western World ,helped Iseral alot in its nuclear power yet it isnot hated like the american administration even after the Law of religious signs in public Schools) , also not because of OSAMA BIN LADEN and his men ,Osama Bin Laden may be popular not because of he is muslim and he hates the U.S and all this nonesense,but because it is according to the principle of my enemy 's enemy is my friend that is all ,believe me ,I am egyptian muslim who lives in the region and know the way of thinking ,may be it is wrong but that is how it goes)
simply they hate the U.S administrations throughout the years because The U.S administration supported and still supporting the dictator ruling systems in the region ,and Iran is best example ,Americans don't know that The C.I.A helped the Shah of Iran to regain his position after Masdak revolution (Masdak was a prime -minister who nationalized the petrolium companies in Iran and wanted to make a democratic system in Iran),The shah Came back again with jells and prisons to whom ever had the gutts to say no ,a very rich expensive life he lived with his family while Irani People lived in Poverty ,excatly like every country in the middle East .
The idea here people see the american administrations supporting their rotten regimes and they have and I share with them this thought that the american administrations when it come to democracy in The Arab -Islamic world ,plays according to its own favor and the favor of the american companies not for the favor of its own american people ,as I don't think the regular american will get any harm if the oil companies in Iran are nationalized or there is a democractic elections in Egypt.
that's why when Bush's adminstration perposed the great middle East plan for democracy ,people before regimes refused it ,they see it with suspect for what is going the American administration to take for this?
this is the core of the problem
it has nothing to do with Islam ,leave Islam alone ,the Real Islam is innocent from all of this conflicts and blood ,the Real Islam that calls for equity ,Just and democracy is forbidden even in the mother land of Islam
Islam isnot the reason of why most of Arab-islamic countries are third world countries from first degree ,no it is the rotten political systems, and this is another tale ,the conflict between the regimes and real Islam and it is big one

Islam and Democracy

To say the truth I amnot ready till now and don't know till when to be a daily blogger ,it is hard but I need a forum to hear my voice,to say what I feel and what I think and this is the most proper place I guess.
well I stop talking about my personal feelings and go for the big event ,with no furthur introductions ,I will begin my journey with the Islam and democracy .
First I apologize that my translation could be bad and may not give the meaning as it is in Arabic but I will try as I can,and the honor of trial is enough for me.
"THE MUSLIMS' MATTERS ARE DISCUSSED AMONG THEM" a direct order mentioned in Holy Quarn ,I hope that translation is correct ,I will explain it again,simply the muslims'matters in anything in life from religion to economics ,from politics to social problems are discussed freely among them ,discussion is the word here. This is number one.
"No difference between a forgien and an Arabic except by the fear of God", simply there is defference between foreign Muslims or Arab Muslims except by the fear of God and this is only known by God,equity is the word here.this 's number 2.
"If you judge ,judge justly" ,if judge in anything ,you must be fair ,be just ,to fear God in your choices the Justice is very important , many parts Holy Quran speaks about justice ,Justice is from the characters of God in Islam , Justice is the word here ,this is number 3.
3 words ,simple words but with great influence ,that they made a revolution from 14 centuries that made tribes in Arabia fought that religion and tried to get rid of it
DISCUSSION,EQUITY AND JUSTICE, I believe these three words are the core of any democratic civilization
now here is the question ,which Arabic or Muslim government work with those 3 words or even just one word? None and this is our problem.
3 words ,simple word ,depend on each ,you can't have Equity with Justice and you can't have Justice with discussion .
there are other words than three , other words present the core of the real Islam ,the Real face of civilization of Islam that once ruled the world
and the Saga Continues......

Islam and western media :2 "The Russian School"

Long time since I wrote my the first part of this post and after that I got busy by many different things, from the olympics (after 52 years,Egypt got antoher golden medal)to the news of Iraq and the french journalists abducation to the sad and sorrowful events of the Russian school ,in brief I was sitting in front Al-Jazeera channels whether the news or the sports Channels (by the way for non arabic speakers ,AL-Jazeera is going to launch a a new English news channel ,well it is good to see and hear from the other side,even though I got depressed from watching it.)
I wanted to complete my talk about The Islam and Democracy.but instead I want to speak about the horrible incident of the Russian school in Ossetia
First I send my condolences to the victims' families
and I understand their anger from the Islam and the Arabs.
Second In plain English,Those who did it whether they were Muslims really or not ,they don't present the Real Islam that Forbids not only killing but even terrfying innocent unarmed people.In Holy Quarn To kill another person without any right ,is like to the kill the whole human Race.
Prophet Mohamed (PBUH) ordered the Muslim Army before going to battles and wars against the tribes who fought against the Islam by the following:
NOT TO KILL OR EVEN TERRFY THE CHILDREN ,THE WOMEN ,THE ELDERLY ,THE INJURED AND THE UNARMED. NOT TO DESTORY ANY TEMPLE OR CHURCH (GOD'S HOUSES IN ISLAM ARE TREATED LIKE MOUSQUES).
NOT EVEN TO TAKE OFF OR DESTORY THE GRASS AND THE PALMS,NOT TO DESTORY THE PLANTS THAT ARE IN THEIR WAYS.
NOT EVEN TO HURT THE PRISONERS OF WAR
This is What Prophept Mohamed (PBUH)ordered the muslim army not to do in Battles and Wars ,I will repeated again in Battles and Wars not in Peace Time
The Muslim ,the real Muslim must obey what is metioned in The Holy Quarn and What Prophet Mohamed (PBUH) did and said.
and appaerantly those who did that horrible act never heard about the real rules of Islam at War,those noble rules,
If they want the freedom of Shashenya ,they go to fight the russian army instead ,and it isnot excuse that the russian army is much powerful,The algerian resistance fought fiercely against the french army that one million person died in the sake of Algeria's freedom and with all that they transfer their battles outside the algerian borders not even to France itself.
Believe me that isnot 100% from Islam ,Islam is word coming from Peace El-salam.
And like the late President of Egypt Mohamed Anwar El-Sadat said in his historical speech in Iseral ,our greeting in Islam ,(the first word in our converstion with others)peace upon you.
you get what I mean
I guess all that terrorist circus is giving to Islam a bad image ,and it is not the fault that the regular western person to hate it ,in fact it is our fault the real muslim,the moderate muslims ,who care about the Islam to take the first step and go to the west and explain our religion.
Mr.Mahatir Mohamed ,the ex-prime minister of Malasyia
gave a lecture from 2 days ago in Alexandira and said that it is more the muslims fault than the Westerns .
Sometimes I feel that all these terrorists acts are just made to make the World hate Muslims and Islam .
Excatly like El-Qaida Statements ,if you 're an arab or muslim and fimilar with arabic and islamic vocabularies ,you will know there is something wrong
about them,something fishy as the americans say
in the end I will end with peace upon all who read this .
n.b ,don't forget most of Islamic World has the most of the energy sources and raw materials in the world,believe me it is bless and curse at the same time.

Islam and Western Media :1

Back again to my journal after being sick with flu and fever in the mid summer of the very hot Egypt,anyway as I wrote before there is great misunderstanding to The arab -islamic culture and above them the Islam itself.
Don't believe everything you see in T.V about it,don't believe everything you read about it in Newspapers and magazines
and more important don't judge it through looking to the image of the new muslims today,it is the wrong image because this isnot the real Islam .
as Egyptian who lives in the middle of the old world,the crossing of many cultures as some like to call it ,I watch many western tv channels and I don't know if this misunderstanding of Islam is intended or unintended,simply they blame Islam on everything bad in the Arab Islamic countries from poverty to ignorance to neglecting the women rights ..etc and they ignored an important point here ,the problem isn't in Islam ,it is the corrupted governmets of these countries which are behind all of these problems and also behind hiding the real Islam,the Islam which calls for equity ,The Islam which calls for freedom,and more important The Islam which calls for democracy"and I will discuss this later",even the Islam that gives women all their rights is sealed by keys held by The men of law and traditions "Saudi Arabi for example",yes traditions and customs ,that Islam came to erase from 14 centuries ,came back again and worse than before
The West World thinks that Islam is its enemy ,this wrong because the real enemy of Islam is the Corrupted governmets and old traditons
It is long topic I am going to speak about it and may God give my strength for this

From Egypt With Love

Greeting from the Egyptian Galaxy ,this is my first post in my third journal attempt ,I had a journal in opera Browser Community from 6 months ago but I did n't complete posting in it as I got busy also I didn't feel like writing anything but now it is different ,I think I am doing this journal by this name "EGYPTIAN CHRONICLES" because I want to try to change this wrong perceived image about my homeland Egypt.Also I got another journal in Opera Browser community with the same name and same content
Egypt is greater than a history book or a touristic country or a program in discovery channel,it is more than all those things .
It is the oldest country on this planet yet I see her (Egypt)not as a country or a continent or even a planet but a GALAXY
yes A Galaxy ,strange I know but all of you will say she loves her country madly.
not just because I am an Egyptian and I love Egypt madly
but I see her too hard to be understood ,too big to be understood (big here doesn't refer to the space or size but it is big and great in something I can't describe in words)
I want to describe Egypt through the eyes of Egyptian who lives and feels her own country
not only Egypt I will write about but also the other Arab and Muslim countries as I guess there is a great misunderstanding about the Arabs ,Middle East and above all of them the Islam
I watched this summer vacation Programs in The travel channel regarding my country and other Arab countries ,they were Syria and Lebanon (both I like and love,know a lot about their history and people)and what I saw in these programs made me angry
let me just say the travel channel always describe the touristic parts in the world in a touristic way but the Arab and Islamic countries it becomes the politics channel ,full of Lies and deception and I am afraid that's the way in most of western media regarding the mideast
so from my humble journal I am trying to correct all those false concepts and lies about my world the Arab and Islamic as much as I can
I speak too long I am afraid
anyway you are all welcome
the house is yours as we say
till we meet again
