Bar Bahar/ In Between – a film by Maysaloun Hamoud

I haven’t seen this film yet, though I’ve heard it received good reviews, and for once the Arabic woman stereotype is broken. For god’s sake, people around the world think that Arab women are supposed to be of one kind, but in this film, as it appears in the trailer, Arab women can live on […]

In a nutshell

Jews and Arabs must admit that they’re enemies, and must find a way to live with that. Live with the fact that they’re enemies, and then later, if that works, they can start finding a way to live with each other.   The same applies to anything. Christians and Muslims must admit that they’re racists […]

I won’t wish you a Ramadan Karim

Little Princesses are sick of society fucking standards

I found this shocking, yet I’m pleased. If you’re appalled by hearing little girls swearing with no shame, then maybe you can think of the society standards. And over think about feminism and equal rights in our so-called modern society. Facing a future where women are still paid 23% less than men for the same work, and […]

Stop Asking

How dare you question anything? How dare you believe others over your own original beliefs? How dare you question the people who raised you and taught you how to live? How dare you think on your own? You’re human, you’re not allowed to think. You’re not allowed to question anything. You’re only allowed to eat, […]

ISIS and Islam (pt.2)

I noticed I lost some followers due to my previous post about Islam ad ISIS. I don’t want to justify myself, I only realized I’ve forgotten to mention few things and I would like to add them to a new post. I want to ask few questions that sometimes I ask myself when I defend […]

ISIS doesn’t represent Islam. So they say.

Over the last few years, lots of people grew to believe that ISIS (or ISIL – the Islamic state in Iraq and the Levant) does not by any means represent the Islam. For one thing, ISIS are massacring both Christians and Muslims in the Middle East. They fight everything and everyone that’s not them. You […]

Adele, Fairouz, and the Arab World

The new song “Hello” by Adele came out and everyone fell completely in love with it. Some others were annoyed by people’s obsession and decided to complain each time they hear it or see it on their Facebook feed. I personally liked the song and I think Adele has an amazing voice. Reasons why people are so […]

After 80+ years – he was right

Today is Aldous Huxley’s 121 birthday, the author of the great masterpiece Brave New World. Has he lived to this day he would have seen his prediction coming to action. Huxley’s Brave New World is one of the eye-opening genius work of all times. Huxley predicted the downward world and society as it has become […]

Every year I decide to write a post about Ramadan: either to wish my friends a Ramadan Karim, or just to criticize Ramadan. But each year I find no words to justify my thoughts and I keep postponing the task. It’s the middle of Ramadan now and here is what I have to say: There are […]

Something outrageous

This is not an outrageous post. This is just a normal post about being outrageous. Definition of Outrageous by Google: shockingly bad or excessive. wildly exaggerated or improbable. very bold, unusual, and startling. So basically, when it comes to writing, most of us want to read something outrageous, otherwise, what’s the point of it? When […]
