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 […]

I won’t wish you a Ramadan Karim

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 […]

Ten Things You Need to Know About Arabs

I found this on the Civil Arab and couldn’t help but share it here: Whoever coined the term “Ignorance is bliss” is an absolute idiot. Ignorance is not bliss. In fact, ignorance leads to misunderstanding. Misunderstanding leads to fear. Fear leads to bias and hate. So I am here to present to the American public […]

I’m not an Arab (pt.2)

I’m not an Arab. Because if I were an Arab I would have to Muslim, I would have to wear the Hijab and pray five times a day. I’m not an Arab. If I were an Arab I would have to speak Arabic all the time and even write this post in Arabic, like all […]

Genocide and Terrorism

We’re all blessed with having different perspectives to share on various issues. But when it comes to humanity are we allowed to disagree with one another? I shared my political opinion on my blog, twitter, Tumblr and even Facebook. (Some have unfriended me on Facebook as a result of my political opinion in which I […]

#PrayForGaza

#PrayForGaza , a popular hashtag all over the internet that asks people to pray for Gaza. Yes, pray for Gaza, and “you don’t have to be a Muslim to pray for Gaza, you simply need to be human.” Gaza needs too much support and apparently, prayers. I once tweeted: For all those who are praying […]

Heaven knows I tried

I have some Israeli friends on Facebook. I have known them from the University days, they were nice people and we were friends. We haven’t maintained our friendship for long, but I still have most of them appear as friends on Facebook. My Facebook isn’t entirely private. This blog is much more private than my […]
