From News

There are so many news that caught my attention, but I didn't write it down before I forget it. There are endless news about what's going on in Iraq and Palestine,,, everyday we watch such news and make us feel more bad and helpless.

Only the story of Osman Chowdhury,, who I went to search about his story.

That was really nice of this satisfied taxi driver. He is really has a heart of gold. How our world will be GREAT and much SAFER if there are so many of this type people.

During last period, I watched a program called Prime Time "PrimeTime Basic instincts". In this program and this spectacular title,, they made several test for ordinary people. What will you do if you were there. What will you do if you saw man attacking and about to hurt a woman in a public place, what will you do if the attacker or the abuser was a woman. When the woman was the victim most of people who stepped in were women!! But when the man was the victim,,, almost no one interfered,,, most of people thought that he cheated her or did bad thing and he was looking guilty!!!

There were different behaviors done by actors to see the reaction of normal people. The racist taxi driver who attacked and insulted black, Arabs, Muslims, Jews, Latin people,…ect!
Some of the passengers stopped him bravely and defended some races,, like that strong black lady who defended Arabs and Muslims and black.
I felt sorry for that boy who couldn’t say anything when the taxi driver attacked Jews and accused them for taking all money and economy of USA. The boy was Jewish!! And he couldn’t tell that!!!
While some passengers enjoyed that and shared that racism,,, one of the them talked about shooting Latin people!!!!

It was interesting series of this program,, go and read more about it:

PrimeTime-Basic instincts

I watched also a report about a campaign for "No Child Soldiers" in France,, nice that many of people still fight for the right of children.

No Child Soldiers

Another report about "Climate Change". That was incredibly scary! How people can't think about our beautiful earth. How they can't do something useful to protect our world. Why some countries ranting about democracy and saving others while they are the one who don't sign any protocol to reduce the pollutions?!!!!

Climate Change


Once, I was watching a symposium in a TV channel and the speaker was Jassem Al Mutawa. He talked about how we are now looking about human being as a number! He said, listen or watch the news,, they say: 10 killed 50 injured! The human being became number nowadays!! In the future, it will be a digital!
While in our religion we look at this human being as a human being! As a living creature with heart, soul and feelings. We should not look at him as number or whatever because Islam and Quran honor this human and consider him as a represented of God on this earth.

It was long and very interesting symposium, but I watched a part of it and that was long long time ago, but I can't forget his words till now.

Noor : You mentioned Palestine and I must say the first thing that came to mind was the Israeli attack recently at Al-Aqsa Mosque. I watched those horrible incidents on Al-Jazeera and my heart sanked when I saw and heard the worshippers shouted Allahuakbar. For a moment there I wish I was there to throw stones with them! I'm glad the excavation works are now halted. And I hope that the holy site will remain untouched by unwanted intruders.

Touching on racism, sometimes I wonder what the world would be like if everyone looks the same. I bet no one will be discriminated against based on how they look on the outside but judged by what they do instead. Wouldn't that be lovely? ;)

Take care Noor :)

Razan, thank u dear, i did visit ur sweet blog and i loved it. i will add it to my list inshallah soon. just need a time first.

Cal, i know, many people thought i will spotlight on what the criminals in Palestine are doing and how they threat that Holy and beautiful mosques,, but i didn't,,, even though i did search about it and watch the news and read newspapers. i was really mad and sad that no one get that guts to stand strongly and defend,,, they didn't do anything to protect humans' lives, so how about Holy Places?!! i just can't talking about that without getting mad and feeling pain in my heart.
i know that Honorable people there in palestine are really strong with their faith to stand with bare chests in front of may death machine. that what make me somehow relieve.
anyway, i think that God created us different to learn how to live together and meet each other,,, it will be really boring world if we were same faces, same colors with same language and same culture. that differences what make our world much interesting and make life itself really colorful. right!
thank you dear for your support and visiting, that's really make me happy.
take care dear,, wish u the best.

Greetings.... I first read about the Al-Aqsa incident, that it was Israelis _repairing_ the access to the mosque (and looking for old artefacts at the same time) and I wondered: "what are the PA's upset about ?" And then I read it from the Arab point of view. It's difficult to see what's _really_ going on. So much distrust and anger. Maybe they should have some Buddhist archaeologists come and dig :-)

Climate change, it's a different matter: maybe one day _all_ mankind will have to get together and try to fix it. Rain, floods and disasters come to all of us.

Remember the tsunami ? For a brief moment it was _all_ humanity trying to help. Not Muslims, Jews, Christians, Buddhists, Hindus, but humans. If only it were possible to think as one world, without disasters.

HH, hello! i don't know, i just can't count news that come from Palestine and Iraq. tragedy!! I just hate such news, but it's really, that's what happen there, anyone to help?!!
politics is dirt!

i have same view, all humans and peoples try to help and support who needs their help. only when disasters happened, why we need disasters to be passionate??!!!!

Moroccan, i try to catch as much as i can, my friends help me in that by telling about what they watched or what's worthy to watch! :)
