I won’t wish you a Ramadan Karim

Originally posted on Strawberry Fields:
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…

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
