United we stand, Divided we fall

I've always felt that women should be running the world. I hope after reading this some of you may come to the same conclusion. I think we need to remember that change is possible and it comes from each and every one of us. As long as there are more like Dr Nurit Peled-Elhanan and others who seek out alternatives to what they're fed, I feel a tinge of actual hope for the world.

The entry that was brought to my attention is on the fate of mothers under a violent/democratic world veiw. Read it here.

Here's an excerpt:

"Palestinian, Iraqi, Afghan women are my sisters because we are all at the grip of the same unscrupulous criminals who call themselves leaders of the free enlightened world and in the name of this freedom and enlightenment rob us of our children. Furthermore, Israeli, American, Italian and British mothers have been for the most part violently blinded and brainwashed to such a degree that they cannot realize their only sisters, their only allies in the world are the Muslim Palestinian, Iraqi or Afghani mothers, whose children are killed by our children or who blow themselves to pieces with our sons and daughters. They are all mind-infected by the same viruses engendered by politicians. And the viruses, though they may have various illustrious names–such as Democracy, Patriotism, God, Homeland–are all the same. They are all part of false and fake ideologies that are meant to enrich the rich and to empower the powerful."

  1. sadly, these ideals you mentioned above have been warped by our leaders to blind our people. these same ideals that are supposed to lead men for the betterment are what leads our people to destroy each other now. does it do us good to kill each other for these ideals? idealism vs. realism, i’d take my side on realism. i’d rather be open to whats real even if it’s too much to bear than remain idealistic and be blinded causing me to be led astray by individuals who use these ideals for their own gain… woe to them who blind men into doing things against their fellowmen…

  2. ooh oooh what about me?

    *jumps up & down with hand held high in the air*

    I personally like “incredibly sassy and awe inspiring”…whatcha think?

  3. Maliha: LOL! I dont use the word “sassy” Its a bit too 80s for me. Hows about, “incredibly swishy and awe inspiring”

    saly: what do you mean you’ve tagged me? Can I tag Maliha?

    Maliha, tag, you’re IT!

  4. Salaamat,
    I like sassy…its so cute:) some things my dear Maryam are timeless:p

    swishy? That sounds too much like a slurpy (do you have slurpies out there?)

    as for the tag you gotta go to that post Saly linked; and then put up your own 10 things that people don’t know about you on your blog…then tag someone else etc.

    i don’t know if i wanna play though …

  5. Someone tagged Amygdala who tagged me and I tagged you two. I think I’ll tag Mayang too now that I have her blog. Basically, you have to post 10 ‘sassy’ things we don’t know about you:-D

  6. Its a perpetual thing for me. The other day i was shaking my ass to an early nineties song that was on tele (in a show) and my dad saw from the other room. I was SO embarassed but I couldn’t stop laughing. My dad’s pretty conservative so it was quite funny hehe

    Ok, so I have to write about myself on your blog Saly?

    Anytime and any chance to talk about myself , I welcome them. Should I just leave it as a comment or what?

    I’m a bit dumb about these things. Oh and I wanna tag yous on my blog! *glee*
