In the Corporate World...

It never ceases to amaze me, the way people's attitudes change when promised better positions or more money...

The Forgotten Battlefield

There's nothing more disturbing than hearing of 7 children killed in a military raid. Afghanistan is now the forgotten battlefield. With Iraq dominating the news, Afghanistan sinks deeper into an abyss of poverty, ignorance, destruction and ultimate death.

How long do the Americans plan on staying there? How long will the public be fooled into believing that these crimes are being purpetrated in the name of their freedom and their beliefs?

Dear Arabi

Dear Arabi,

Get well soon. Wishing you a speedy recovery...

... Take care of your health ...



The Bumpy Road to Peace...

The region is on fire, to whose benefit is that? Iraq, Palestine, Lebanon? People are dying, children torn apart by bombs, death, hunger and disease, what's happening?
Is there any hope for the future, how long will this fighting continue?
While the Arab leaders work to attract as much investments into their countries and subsequent pockets, people in these sorry situations continue to die, and cry.

... We watch in silence ...

... Hopelessness ...

... Despair ...


...Crimes ...

... What a Sorry Arab Situation ...

...Al-Naksa, 40 years on...

It was 40 years ago this month, when another black day is marked on the Arab History calendar. It was 40 years ago when millions of Arabs were kicked out of their homes to be replaced by Jews from all over the world. It was 40 sorry years ago, when the Arab conscience was shaken so badly, it has refused to wake up.

And to this day, millions of Palestinians still live in squalid, crowded refugee camps and have no official identities. No UN resolution, no Arab League decision, no other human justice ever looked over the Palestinian refugee crisis. They just continue to live as refugees around the world while everyone goes home and sleeps soundly.

40 years on, Palestinians still live as refugees on their own land.

Wikipedia's explanation:

Naksa Day (6 June) (Arabic: يوم النكسة)
commemorates the Naksa ("setback"), the mass displacement and dispossession of
Palestinians during and after the 1967 Six-Day War between Israel, Egypt, Jordan and Syria. The first mass
displacement, known as the Nakba, took place
during and after the 1947-1949 Palestinian Civil War and the 1948 Arab-Israeli
. This exodus is marked on Nakba Day.

Remember the day of the Naksa (the setback), don't let the memory of the Jewish land theft die. Don't be a nation without a memory. Palestinians have suffered, for us all.
