9 terrorists (!) liquidated

Afghanistan, Dec 2004

On Dec. 5, six children died when a wall fell on them during a nighttime assault on a complex in eastern Paktia province

The next day, nine more children were found dead in a field after an attack by an A-10 ground attack plane on a mountain village in neighbouring Ghazni province.

Both attacks were aimed (so they say) at wanted militants, but no combatants were among those killed.

The Arab and the Camel

asalamu aleikum

There is a modern lesson in this story. Can you decipher it?

Once there was an Arab, and his inseparable companion, the Camel, because we are talking of the Arab of old, not the modern-day urbanised Arab, who travels in his air-conditioned Mercedes (or more likely these days, the Toyota Corolla).

As we know they lived in the desert, or at least travelled in it.

We also know that Arabs live in tents.

So this day the Arab was in the desert in his tent, when the desert breeze started getting stronger. Soon it became a strong wind.

The Camel which had been tied to the tent on the outside, put his head in and said to the Arab: "Master, this wind is too strong for me, and the sand is getting in my eyes, will you please allow me to shield my head against the sand by keeping it inside the tent."

Now this was a good-natured Arab, and also true to the Arab tradition of hospitality, so he allowed his camel to keep his head inside the tent.

After some time, the wind got even stronger and a sandstorm started brewing.

The Camel withstood it for a while, then said to the Arab: "Master, my neck is hurting like anything. This sand is getting into my neck, please allow me to bring the neck in as well. There is enough space in the tent for that."

The Arab saw the discomfort of his Camel, and agreed to the Camel's request.

After some more time, the wind really started blowing, and the Camel found it necessary to ask for more favor.

"Master", he said, "I would like to bring in my front two feet as well, since the sand is beginning to bite on those."

The Arab gave up his relaxing position, so the Camel could shelter his front feet.

After a while, the Camel asked to bring in the front half of his torso inside, and did so without waiting for an affirmative answer.

After some more time, the Camel said to the Arab: "My body is feeling the difference between the front half being sheltered in the tent, and the hind half being outside in the storm. I am, therefore, going to bring in the back half as well, but don't worry, I will keep my hind legs outside so there is room for you."

Saying that, the Camel brought in the back half inside the tent, and the Arab had no choice but to squeeze himself in a corner.

As the sandstorm increased in ferocity, the Camel could stand it no more, and told the Arab: "Arab, make way for my hind legs. I cannot keep them outside forever."

Saying that the Camel brought his hind legs in, so that now the Arab and his Camel were both inside the tent, but the Arab was quite squeezed. in.

After some more time, the Camel said to the Arab: "Arab, I have been tolerating you for a long time now, but there simply isn't space in the tent for both of us". Saying that he kicked the Arab out of the tent, and spread his legs.

by humiliating kids

U.S. Occupation Forces Bring Clean Water to The Children Of Iraq - Humiliation as a weapon of war

the real question, after the obvious humiliation attempts, is why are the children and later the group of adults so desperate for a bottle of water? how bad is it where they live that one simple bottle of water makes children run for blocks, and adults rush for a dropped plastic bottle? This video tells us so much more than obvious humiliation of children. It tells us just how bad Iraq truly is. What have we wrought to the Iraqi people? Damn America! Long live the resistance. Long Live the Iraqi people!

It is so sad!

Fallujah, the hidden massace

The US has a great population. It has qualities that other people have not developed to this extent. It has a good heart, yet it manages to take the side of repression. Yet it falls from its commitment not to engage in Imperial Wars. It manages to behave imperially.

That is very sad. Look at its achievments. People flock there, and due to hard work and merit, they make it in this world. They are at the forefront of discoveries amd the applications thereof. Their scientific advances have been breathtaking. They make money, and they give substantial portions in charity. Yet they bomb people, invent and use most horrible weapons, support the colonial state of Israel, and support repressive regimes.

It is so sad!

video: Planet of the Arabs

Planet of The Arabs

A trailer-esque montage spectacle of
Hollywood's relentless vilification and dehumanization of Arabs
and Muslims.

Inspired by the book
"Reel Bad Arabs" by Dr. Jack Shaheen

Official selection of the Sundance Film
Festival 2005

Out of 1000 films that have Arab & Muslim characters (from the
year 1896 to 2000)

12 were postive depictions, 52 were even handed and the rest of
the 90O and so were negative.

Why Israel attacked Lebanon

source travel and leisure magazine

Tel Aviv has never made the list

why else would you destroy civilian infrastructure, pollute sandy beaches, and target foreign nationals?

Here is some evidence of the diversion of water, and an idea as to why Israel wants to dislodge the Lebanese from the border. The Israeli side of the border is marked with thick and lush greens. The Lebanese side is marked with dry and arid yellows. during the 22 year Israeli occupation of South Lebanon, all Lebanese water resources were diverted to Israel [BBC]. This resulted in a stark difference between two lands separated by a 10 meter dirt road. Israel to date threatens Lebanon with military action whenever Lebanese farmers attempt to irrigate Lebanese lands with Lebanese waters [BBC].
