Muslims…Arabs…Pretty Women 2

Now , here you are, the second Part:

=Mera Al-Meheeri=
Mera is lovely Arabic News broadcaster in Dubai TV. I like so much my sisters on Dubai TV. I buy the magazines that contain any interview with them. Mera is my favorite one beside Samah and I really like her so much. She is so cute, humble and proved herself in this field. "Let me tell you my silly thought, I think Mera is look alike Hollywood actress SJP> Sarah Jessica Parker. Not so much, a little bit"

=Samah Al-Abaar=
Yes, Adorable Samah. She was the first one caught my attention as a news broadcaster in Dubai TV even before Mera. She has very special voice, I can recognize her by her voice only. The special thing about her and Mera and other anchors on Dubai TV that they kept wearing our traditional Abayya on TV with new lovely colorful Sheela. They are from emirates. Good For Them!

=Nelly Kareem=
Nelly is an Egyptian actress. I don't know her so much, but I think she is cute with childish face. I knew that she is originally a ballerina; I like ballets and ballerinas. As I saw her in an interview long time ago, I shocked that she was married and a mother of 2 boys. I couldn’t believe that because she looks so cute and young and unexpected to be a mother!.
I put her here because I like her, I don't know if she is Muslim or not, but she is for sure Arabic face.

Nelly actually has Russian features (she's half russian and only learned arabic when she moved to egypt). And apparently she was a bitch in a former life. Ditching her loving husband and children to run after fame. I wouldn't hold her in such high regards if I were you

Karin: thanks dear. I really like them too , especially my Gulfer girls ;)

Abed: Ha Ha Ha, yeah, I know, I just buy magazines and I find interviews with them, so I scan the gorgeous pictures of them. I buy any magazine has an interview with lovely people like these. Again, I'm biased to my Gulfer sisters ;)

Qwaider: Oh My Goodness. What are you saying?!! :( I don't know these things about her. So what if she is half Russian, it's not a crime.
"apparently she was a bitch in a former life", Oh GOD, I'm sure you don't know what you are talking about, you just assumed that because she wasn't live in Egypt, not nice of you. So if I don't know you and then knew you are half something lived most of your life in that country will be a shame. I knew that she divorced, but why you think that happened because of her. She was already famous long time before the divorce. Maybe, it's a jealousy. I don't think a girl like her will be that low. Besides, who we are to judge her and deface her reputation. I know there are some people out of the straight path, but we should pray for them to see the right way. We should be nice to them and not despise them, so we can help them see the way.
The celebs life is not easy under ugly rumors, defamations and scandals. We should feel sorry for them instead of going along with the media crap to attack them unfairly. So, sorry I will keep her picture, and pray for her to be the good person as I wish for her.

Dear Noor, May I say that you misunderstood what I was saying?
Being half ANYTHING or Non-Arab altogether doesn't make someone a -excuse me- bitch. I wasn't referring to that.
The fact that she ditched her husband and children to run after fame is the part that made me say that. And I would say that about any woman who does the same thing. ESPECIALLY if she was married to a good man. There are certain things in the world that can't be replaced in the eye of a child. The security of home is worth a Million Oscars.
So little people know that.

Maybe you still don't know me well enough to know that I wasn't racist about my comment or anti-feminist. And I'll give you that. But, trust me, I didn't say something that she hasn't ALREADY done. You can check

Noor - I am not going to judge here, I just ask you to read that and take your own conclusions ...

I found that over the net - dater 6.10.-12.10.2003

Nelly Kareem
The professional Egyptian Ballerina Nelly Kareem has announced her marriage to the professional ballet dancer and Artist, Ibrahim Baltaji, who is the manager of one of the major ballet theaters in Germany.

Furthermore I found at that site:

"On a different note, Nelly recently divorced Egyptian businessman Baha Sabri, after a marriage that lasted only six months. The actress refused to comment on the reasons for her divorce, stating that it is a private matter she does not wish to share.

Please judge yourself ... maybe this was what Qaider was refering to! I was just being nosey and checked over the net - I wanted to find a reason why he was making these statements!

Henri: Thanks ;)

Qwaider: I really hoped it was misunderstanding, but NO. I did understand ur point, u thought she dropped her family and marriage life for fame, she swapped her stable family life for the crazy life of fame and limelight. Well, are you her husband or a relative somehow.. No, did you meet the family before and decided that her husband was A GOOD MAN?! From where you got all these information?! If you gonna say MEDIA…so that's craps "gossips". I saw and heard about many of divorce cases "not among celebs, but with normal people" that can't be real. Usually, people accuse wives of the divorce and sat women ruin their marriage lives by themselves, while mostly men who do that, lots of men are very selfish and greedy. Okay, let me go along with you once, So, what if she did that, no one is infallible. Are you infallible and never done a mistake or sin?!!! SURE you did.. we all did and still do mistakes and sins, but the good one who has living conscience inside his/her heart and turns to God in repentance. We are still incapable to see all hidden things; we don't know what is really inside others' hearts. Maybe who looks to us good person can be real evil and malicious and who looks to us bad and evil can be good and sensitive. Only GOD knows what inside hearts, so we should keep our favorable judgment.
You came here to make it worse than before. I'm really upset with you. >:(
I think what you did now can be call "backbiting".

OH, this is my final word for you , in Holy Koran GOD says:

يَا أَيُّهَا الَّذِينَ آمَنُوا اجْتَنِبُوا كَثِيراً مِّنَ الظَّنِّ إِنَّ بَعْضَ الظَّنِّ إِثْمٌ وَلَا تَجَسَّسُوا وَلَا يَغْتَب بَّعْضُكُم بَعْضًا أَيُحِبُّ أَحَدُكُمْ أَن يَأْكُلَ لَحْمَ أَخِيهِ مَيْتًا فَكَرِهْتُمُوهُ وَاتَّقُوا اللَّهَ إِنَّ اللَّهَ تَوَّابٌ رَّحِيمٌ
((O ye who believe! Shun much suspicion;! Some suspicion is a crime "and sin". And spy not, neither backbite one another. Would one of you love to eat the flesh of your dead brother? Ye abhor that (so abhor the other)! And be God-fearing.! God is Relenting, Merciful.))

Karin: thanks for sharing. It's not about Nelly now, it's about people's lives and personality and privacy. Think about it in this way.

Noor - I'm sorry ... it was never my intention to sow disharmony!!!!!

Blogger Noor said...

Oh sweet Karin, never mind. It's okay. At least, we discussed something very important thing here. How we should respect other people and never judge them through other's eyes without any verification. Besides, we should never say bad things about others even if they really have these bad things because it is backbiting and slandering. we should be nice and gentle to take them in the right way. Right!

Blogger I love Munich said...

I absolutely agree - but still feel a bit guilty as this kind of escalation was by NO MEANS my intention!
You have a very wonderful, soft nature - I so much like that!! It probably strikes me even more as this is close to non-existent over here in this culture, something which bothers me a LOT! Somebody very sensitive does suffer here ... no question, because people often do not even realize how rude and INsensitive - and hurting they are!

God Bless you Karin. That's exactly what I meant and I want people to see and feel.

Anonymous Qwaider قويدر said...

Okay Noor, Let me tell you where YOU went wrong
First of all, you changed this subject from things that Nelly did, to things I said and turned the subject to me saying things. While I was trying to show you that I am just mentioning what she has done.
Am I without sin? Are you?
What kind of a question is that? If the issue was about me. Then fine. I don't mind you asking such a question. But We're not talking about me. Nor am I the subject of this discussion.

Then you go on a rant about divorced women and how men are to blame etc. What does that have to do with the case at hand? I have no idea. And besides. I can counter your argument pretty easily and tell you that WOMEN are also to blame for divorce. But that's a different subject altogether lets talk about it in another discussion

Next thing you bring up is how did I know. I watched a show in ART where SHE was the guest speaker and she told her life story. To gain people's sympathy. As ALL WOMEN do, cry to help them falsify facts. I was able to read between the lines and discovered the truth in what she said. I'm smart and experienced enough, to understand her situation. And I wasn't happy with what I was hearing.

The bottom line is. This is my personal opinion of this person. And you have your own opinion of her. We might not agree. But this doesn't mean I respect YOU any less.

Why ever said we can't be judgmental or have to always be politically correct!? That's social hypocrisy. If I don't like someone or something no one can domesticate my thoughts into submitting and being a farm chicken. Its my right to have my personal opinions of people and it's my right to like or dislike them.

Finally, When something is public knowledge. It's not gossip to mention it again. If it was mentioned on TV, by the person. It's not Istighabeh ... Istighabeh is when I falsify something about someone and propagate it.

Noor, You have responded with much more violence than this matter deserves. While I totally respect your ideas. I didn't like the bit about turning this into a personal attack on myself. I would appreciate it if we both stick to the ideas, and not the people who hold them.

I hope you find it in your heart to calm down. And accept your brother's [me] opposing view

watching from the sideline, not knowing a thing about the woman in question: It's about judging or not.

These beautiful women; I cannot disregard their being so covered up - it's ME culture I know, but it's foreign to me.

And when we discuss them, we judge each other, we even judge each other's judgement. (it's getting complicated here :-)

Do you Muslims know the story of Jesus being brought to a woman who was accused of adultery ? The rabbis asked him "the Law says she must be stoned, what do you say?" He answered: "Let whoever is without sin cast the first stone"...and they all backed away.

(Karin u know the story, I guess)

It's so easy to judge, so hard to understand.

Blogger I love Munich said...

Halalhippie - yes, I sure do know this parable but am smart/diplomatic enough NOT to get involved in this discussion again!

It ultimately says, whatever people do, we humans are not to cast any judgement, that is alone up to GOD ...

BTW ... did YOU know that Jesus is HIGHLY respected in Islam as well?

Who ever said we can't judge? Or we don't?
Someone comes up to you and you KNOW he's a thief and a liar. Tries to take your money. Do you resort to your judgement or play Jesus?
Jesus gave a diplomatic answer. Where the Rabbis were trying to incriminate him with not following the ten commandments. He chose not to get involved because otherwise this would put an abrupt end to the message he's trying to deliver.
At a later point. Jesus did pass judgement not only on humans but god himself when he said "Why have you forsaken me". We all judge and judged by our actions. So what if we stood our grounds and stuck to our judgement? We may or may not be wrong. But at least, we won't empty our pockets to a thief

Dear Noor,
Sorry for taking too much space on your blog. And for disagreeing with you in your own home. But I prefer to disagree with you than to lie to just get along.

Please accept my utmost respect

Wow, Okay :) Q, "can I call u Q", you didn't mention that u saw ART program and that SHE talked by herself. I was ranting!!! , really, oh sorry, I wanted to say how the society blame "mostly" women first whether it was their fault or not, you can't say that's not true, it happens a lot. For that, I considered Nelly's case in the same direction. as I told you in your blog I don't know her, I didn't watch any program, film or series for her for long long time, but I'm not gonna attack and deface something or somebody without any reason. You could say in the first place: I saw her in an interview and she pretended "as I assume", without putting bad word to describe her whether she deserves it or not. Right!
Well, sorry if I looked like a violent to you. I was upset with ur description, I know I'm little bit irascible, but I'm trying to control myself as much as I can. Oh, as for the sins part, I said YOU and WE, because we are all sinners and we must look at ourselves first to fix what we done wrongly before criticize others. So, I didn't call you specifically the only sinner!
It's okay, Q, I do understand your point. We do judge even in our heart and without saying words. but at least, we should be nice and not spread bad things about others as I said before, even if she did what you said, we should leave her to find her way and not despise her. Anyway, I want to thank you for your disagreement that opened this dialogue,
الاختلاف في الرأي لا يفسد للود قضية
"the dissenting opinions will not destroying the respect"
Thank you all for sharing with big smile

To Q only:

بصراحة أنا مشغولة و ما عندي وقت كبير ، بجانب عندي أمور خاصة لا أقدر الإفصاح عنها تشغلني جداً و مزاجي يكون متقلب خاصة مع مشكلة تواجهني مع هذا المتصفح الغبي العنيد ، لهذا سوف أرفع قصة وجدتها بالايميل عندي من فترة طويلة ربما من 3 أشهر مضت ، لا وقت عندي لأكتب مع أن عندي مواضيع أريد أطرحها للنقاش (حتى القصة نفسها لم أجد وقت لأترجمها للزوار الغربيين مثل ما ترجمت قصة العالم و تلميذه ، وقتي جدا ضيق و المشاغل تزيد علي)، عموما كيو لا تفكر القصة أقصد بها أنت فهي أتتني جاهزة مع قصة العالم و تلميذه و أحببتها من زمن طويل ، الآن ارفعها لأني لم أكمل مقاله أود رفعها و بها أسئلة لإخوتي الغربيين. فرجاءاً لا تسيء الظن بي. تمام . شكراً .

لماذا اسيء الظن بك يا نور؟ هل تعتقدي اني سأحكم عليكي بسبب النقاش؟
أنا اعشق النقاش مع العقلاء والاذكياء، فهو يفيدني اكثر من اي شيء. احب ان ارى العالم بعيون الاخرين. و النقاش معك سمحلي ان ارى العالم بنظرتك الحالمه. للأسف قد لا اشاركك فيها لكن استمتع فيها بدون اي شك

آدم شكراً ، وللأسف ، أحب جداً خديجة بن قنة و لم أجد لها صور بالحجاب ، وجدت صور أخريات و لكن لم أجد صور لها ، ربما في القريب العاجل إن وجدت لها صور مميزة كصور أخواتي هنا فسوف أعدلها و ارفعها بنفس الشكل. شكراً على الاهتمام :)

كيو: لا داعي لكل هذا. جميل أن نتخلف في الآراء فمنها نستقي أمور جديدة و نتعرف على طبيعة البشر المختلفة و توجهاته ، صحيح و اعترف أني جدا حالمة و احلم بعالم مثالي نقي صافي لكني لا اهرب من الواقع بل أواجه ، واعرف أني أواجه شكل مختلف عن نظرتي ، لكن على الأقل أحاول أن أوضح ما أتمناه و احلم به و ربما اقدر أغير و لو الجزء اليسير مما أراه ، ربما علاقتي اللطيفة مع الناس ساعدتني أن اقترب منهم احتويهم بشكل ما و اعرف ما يحملون من هموم و مآسي ، مثلاً زميلة أيام الدراسة كانت تتعرض للطعن من الخلف ، بسبب دلعها الزائد و أسلوبها الكثير من البنات يضحكن معها و من الخلف يطعن فيها و يشوهن سمعتها ، لم أحب هذه الطريقة إذا كانت البنت جيدة فلماذا يتحملن ذنب تشويه سمعتها و إذا كانت سيئة فلماذا لا يواجهنها بما فيها من عيوب بشكل مهذب رقيق ، فقررت كما العادة أن أتقدم بطرق دبلوماسية و نجحت أن اعرفها بما يجعل الآخرين يسيئون الظن بها ، نصحتها بشكل أحبته و طلبت مني المساعدة ، ساعدتها كما ساعدت غيرها و عرفت عنها الكثير و عرفت منها أمور و أسرار حفظتها في قلبي جعلتني افهمها نوعاً ما، لا أقول أني نجحت 100% في تغير الجميع ، فمع هذه فشلت فبعد فترة اكتشفت أن طبعها غالب عليها و لم اقدر تغييرها كلياً ، فتركتها بشكل مهذب و ابتعدت.
لم اياس و لكن قدراتي لم تفلح معها كما فلحت مع غيرها.
عموما جميل أن يظل الإنسان متفائل مع الحذر و التمكن من معاملة الآخرين بشكل لائق لكسبهم و محاوله مساعدتهم.

I just came across this post and it is an old one but I decided that I can not read this weithout commenting. I know Nelly Kareem on the personal level since she was a child and played with my sister when they visited Egypt.

Nelly Kareem was never a bitch, she came from a very decent and hard working family. She got married at the age of 18 to her first husband and father of her 2 boys.
Her husband started cheating on her numerously, she even caught him once in a hotel with another woman. After forgiving him so many times, she decided that she couldn't put up with this any longer and decided to leave.

She has been looking for true love and stability ever since. Getting married numerously doesn't make you a bad mother. Prophet Mohamed married 9 times, can you say he was a bad father?
Nelly has been a very hard worker all her life, originally from a poor family. She has a degree in classical music (piano) from Moscow as well as her Ballet degree.
It is so upsetting to read how the media ruins someone reputation like that and people repeating things they know nothing about like parrots. 7esabkom 3and rabena
