Election day: voting is a necessity

I know I’m not the most politically educated person, and I know that everything I say in this post will be used against me in many different aspects. The situation in Israeli is messed up in a way that every time you try to state an opinion, you get lashed out, and decide to stay […]

#IWD2018

Today is the International Women’s day. And for some reason, I don’t like making a huge deal out of this day. Perhaps because I’m fed up with all of the women empowerment posts on the social media, and all of the cliched statements that are recently made. You can go around, and feel like “Oh […]

Random Persecution. Simply because I’m an Arab.

Over the last three years I decided that I cannot keep posting any political posts on Facebook, especially on Facebook, since it’s the most exposed medium and can subject myself to persecution, or in worst cases I can be arrested for state security offense. Surely you can sense a tone of exaggeration, why should I be arrested […]

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 […]

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 […]

My Road to Honesty

Yes, sometimes I lie. Sometimes I hide my feelings ans thoughts. Sometimes I have to make a living out of lying and pretending I’m someone else. We’re all humans after all, we’ve been raised on lies and we’ve been lying ever since we started communicating. Over the last few years, I decided to treasure honesty […]

67 years of what?

For them, it’s 67 years of glory. 67 years of existence. 67 years of belonging. For us, it’s 67 years of remembrance. 67 years of pain. 67 years of lost identity. But seriously, what is those 67 years represent? what’s the actual outcome? what actually happened during these years? or before these years? or even, […]

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 […]

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 […]

Time to stop?

As you might have noticed my last ten posts where only for the war on Gaza. I never imagined myself writing posts on my blog that are dedicated for politics, I have always been away from the political situation in the country. I always found disinterest in politics and political activities. Those who know me […]
