My virtual reality

woman-reading

 

I always want to escape from this exotic reality. I found fantasy more real than the reality.

I suddenly became to love strange things, to be alone. I realized that this is because I was the whole time looking for something very important, I was looking for myself. The most important thing in life is to find this scared person inside you and to bring him to light.

To be capable of fighting this life, you need to make a better contact with yourself. To accomplish that I had to create my own virtual world where I can design everything in it as I wan to see the world. Over many researches proved that the more your life is simple the more you are healthy. Including my realization period I discovered many things in life, life was giving me lessons. One of these important lessons, our lives are not healthy! We surround ourselves with machines and lots of misused technology.

And now I realized how life used to be wealthy of beauty before this era. I always imagine myself living another era in another place. The fact that I’m living in Gaza does not annoy me anymore. Thanks to my virtual world that I made I could travel and go anywhere, I create my own city and live the life I want. It does not matter where you live, what matters the most is your priceless mind.

I always imagine myself on an island alone just me and myself, I would create my own world and I will be really upset if someone came to rescue me. I imagine myself on that island making my own hammock, reading my books and c’est la vie!.

I am not running away from life and its burdens, but to face it I need my full health and mind. I need to live my life that I choose not the life society chooses for me! I realized how books are more important than food for me because I should keep my mind fed. And as long as I cannot quench my thirst for knowledge, I am alive.

To those who accuse Muslims 

  

Hello there! Yes I’m talking to you!

 

To you, who is accusing Islam of many unfair things! You just browse the news and the media and then, oh yeah, you believe Muslims are terrorists! Is that it? Do you know anything about the history of Islam? Do you know the most important principles of the religion? Did you forget about all the crusades? All the vicious wars between governments and churches? Those who are the peddlers of military weapons! Why do you connect any violent attack with Islam? Knowing that any human is capable of committing violence! Violence is not something a group of people do, violence could be inside anyone of us. Do you know that the lowest crime rate is in Islamic countries! Do you know how many people are killed everyday in the US and Europe? Either through violence or society’s neglect.

 

Do you know that punishments in Islam are just 1% of the religion! Every religion in the world has came for one goal, peace. Only people misunderstood and mispracticed them. Although punishments exist in Islam, they have strict conditions in order to be practiced. The most important thing is to have independent state. States are no longer practical in the present the last one was the Ottoman Empire rather than that an Islamic state could not be built. For that reason none of the big Islamic countries are supporting the so-called ISIS. You should know that Islam nowadays is rarely practiced right as it should. Also Islam is divided to many sects: schism, Sunna, Hanables…

 

So every one of them may practice something different in the name of Islam. One day I saw a video “stoning a girl”. It was horrible for me as a Muslim! Cause it had nothing to do with my religion! Stoning in Islam isn’t like that and it can’t be done in this era. The most horrible thing in Islam is killing a human. Prophet Mohammed taught us: destroying Al-Kaba at Mecca stone by stone is more acceptable than taking one life. Relationship with girls in Islam also is misunderstood in the world, everything prohibited has a reason for it. Having sex before marriage has several demerits:

 

Scientific, admixture of generations.

 

Social: many people kill each other for that and it brings shame to the family.

 

Modesty, Islam preserves modest of women.

 

Moreover, everyone has a choice no one is forced to be a Muslim and all Muslims are happy with it. For me, if I have the choice I will choose Islam every time. Because I feel comfortable and peaceful with it, that’s the point of all religions – to bring peace, comfort and harmony.

 

There are many things you could not understand unless you go deeper into the matter. I’m not a religious scholar, I just wanted to get things off my chest.

When a mother abandons her child

bsi77umimaarm2v

I woke up in the morning about in early July, 2014. There was no electricity like always and I was bored. I thought I would read a book. I opened the window and stood there to get some fresh air as I tend to do in the morning. Once I opened the window I heard a loud blast and clouds filled my vision  I could not see anything because of the dust. Children started to cry and scream, I did not give it much attention as the Israelis do it from time to time. I went to have my breakfast. After few minutes I heard the resistance reply with a rocket.

After an hour the tanks on the borders started shooting. I realized the day was not going to be easy. The tanks kept shooting for hours.I tried to know what’s going on. I could not watch the TV news because there was not electricity, but eventually I found an old radio. I turned it on and started listening. All the local channels were trying to calm the people and telling us to stay at home.

After a while the Israelis stopped firing dead down for a few hours. but In the afternoon they  started up again, more aggressivly this time. I knew that something must have happened to drive them crazy.

I checked out the news. It turned out that the resistance had performed a large operation behind enemy’s lines. People could not leave their homes now. Anyone leaving their home would be dead.

After three days of endless fighting, the people decided to run for their lives, but they were still afraid of what would happen to them. But they came to realize that taking their chances was better than being sitting ducks. They could die any second.

At 5:00 AM in the morning the people decided to run together as one group, , they started leaving their houses, but unfortunately that was not a good idea.

When the people  started running outside a family of 11 members was hit and killed in the street. People were unable to do anything , and they could not get back home.

Air-strikes rained down upon them. It was the most horrifying scene in my life. People get bombed, shreds of flesh flying in the air. I said to myself, what a vicious inhumane enemy ! The people watched their loved ones getting ripped to pieces and they were absolutely helpless. They could do nothing about it. Even if a mother dropped her child ,she could not return to  save it. And the ones who thought about stopping to save their families, they ended up dead like the rest of them.

People were killed like animals and those that survived witnessed the most vicious massacre Gaza has ever seen. The people who managed to escape some of them found a relative to stay at their house and some stayed in the street. Me and my family ran to our uncle’s house and stayed there ( -Nayma tower- ).

I could not believe I survived such a horrible situation. Me and my family decided to do a barbecue to celebrate, but it was Ramadan, so we had to wait  until the time of  Al-Maghrep prayer.

At 7:00 PM while we were preparing the table a drone missile hit my uncle’s balcony. We all knew  that meant. That we should evacuate the whole tower immediately because they are going to bring it down to the ground. Usually the period between the warning shot  (drone missile) as the Israelis call it 5 minutes or so.

While we were evacuating another drone missile hit my aunts flat which was next to my uncles. When we rushed to check, my aunt’s face was covered in blood and she was screaming trying to say something. We hardly understood what she was saying, that her son was stuck under a big cement rock. A few of my relatives decided to go inside to rescue him, and once they entered they all died.

After that we had no place to go to. We finally  decided to go to the UNRWA school thinking it’s the safest place since it’s an international organization, but it seemed like the Israelis were determined not to leave us alone.

We spent many days in the school and having a hard time getting food and water and to stand in  lines for hours to get them. The food was humanitarian help from UNRWA.

Eventually we were not safe even there. Air-strikes hit the school many times and many people died. Women, children, old men, the Israelis do not differentiate or care.

We spent the most miserable time of our lives in the UNRWA school. I will never forget these horrible scenes. We stayed in the school even after the aggression ended.

I wrote this, so that the whole world can know the horrors that happened here in Gaza. Maybe for the world what happened here is just any other violence act. They might get depressed for a day, or change their profile picture for a while, but actually the world does not know the exact horrifying truth. I just wish the whole world would find out the truth. Who is the victim and who is the perpetrator. And to see the bigger picture. To see what is actually happening behind the scenes, not just what the Zionist media is showing to the world. Misrepresenting the facts and using the media and propaganda as a weapon to deform our real identity.

Translated by me, narrated by me friend from Al-Shejaya Ahmad Al Ejla.

Propaganda 

Propaganda 

  

Two days ago my friend from London sent me an article from a zionist news website about a translated Arabic article about a mother expresses her joy when she heard her daughter saying ” Mom ! I’m ready to sacrifice my self for Palestine “.

I felt angry and surprised how the zionist writer misrepresented the fact and twisted the words, because I’m a Palestinian from Gaza and I witnessed the three consecutive agressions.

And more than that they vilify our beliefs and misdescribe them to the world. For instance: when we say ” we are ready to sacrifice our lives for the sake of Palestine ” they describe it to the world as we are terrorists and don’t value life. Ironically just like someone steals your house and occupy it and then convince the neighbors that they are the owner of the house.

When my mother saw me angry like that she told me ” don’t worry son they always do that even when they killed “Mohammed Al Doura” between his fathers arms they should the world that he was shooting at them”.

It’s very depressing how they play with words by their propaganda and lying at the world about our cause and unfortunately it worked because actually no one in the world knows the real truth about the hell and the horrifying massacres that the Gazan people witnessed.

I still have hope that there are some good intelligent people who can’t be deceived by their lies and actually want to know about the horrifying truth.

The oldest man on earth

256 Years Old Man Breaks The Silence Before His Death And Reveals Shocking Secrets To The World
3899bbae46ed8655a284079b4ea4ba9e

What is the longest a person has ever lived for? Meet Li Ching Yuen, a man who lived an astonishing 256 years! And no, this is not a myth or a fictional tale.

According to a 1930 New York Times article, Wu Chung-chieh, a professor of the Chengdu University, discovered Imperial Chinese government records from 1827 congratulating Li Ching-Yuen on his 150th birthday, and further documents later congratulating him on his 200th birthday in 1877. In 1928, a New York Times correspondent wrote that many of the old men in Li’s neighborhood asserted that their grandfathers knew him when they were boys, and that he at that time was a grown man.
Li Ching Yuen reportedly began his herbalist career at the age of 10, where he gathered herbs in mountain ranges and learned of their potency for longevity. For almost 40 years, he survived on a diet of herbs such as lingzhi, goji berry, wild ginseng, he shoo wu and gotu kola and rice wine. In 1749, at the age of 71, he joined the Chinese armies as teacher of martial arts. Li was said to be a much-loved figure in his community, marrying 23 times and fathering over 200 children.

According to the generally accepted tales told in his province, Li was able to read and write as a child, and by his tenth birthday had traveled in Kansu, Shansi, Tibet, Annam, Siam and Manchuria gathering herbs. For the first hundred years he continued at this occupation. Then he switched to selling herbs gathered by others. He sold lingzhi, goji berry, wildginseng, he shou wu and gotu kola along with other Chinese herbs, and lived off a diet of these herbs and rice wine.

He Wasn’t The Only One

According to one of Li’s disciples, he had once encountered an even older 500-year-old man, who taught him Qigong exercises and dietary recommendations that would help him extend his lifespan to superhuman proportions. Apart from Qigong and a herb-rich diet, what else can we learn from this Master of Longevity?

How about this: On his death bed, Li famously said, “I have done all that I have to do in this world”. Could his peaceful last words also hint at one of the biggest secrets to a long and prosperous life? It’s interesting to note that in the West, we’re often taught to believe that aging is something that must be “beaten” with high tech infrared devices and state of the art medication.

His Secret To Long Health:

Li was asked what his secret was to longevity. This was his reply: “Keep a quiet heart, sit like a tortoise, walk sprightly like a pigeon and sleep like a dog.” These were the words of advice Li gave to Wu Pei-fu, the warlord, who took Li into his house to learn the secret of extremely long life.

Li maintained that inward calm and peace of mind combined with breathing techniques were the secrets to incredible longevity. Obviously, his diet would have played a large role. But its fascinating that the old living person in recorded history attributes his long life to his state of mind.

Why Is This So Hard To Believe?

With the average lifespan for the Western world currently sitting between 70-85 years, the thought of someone living over 100 years old seems like quite the stretch. The thought of someone living over 200 years old seems extremely suspicious. But why don’t we believe that people can live this long?

We have to keep in mind that some people in this world don’t live a grueling 9-5 lifestyle, they don’t have to deal with the stresses of debt, they aren’t breathing polluted city air, and they exercise regularly. They don’t eat refined sugars or flour, or any foods that have had pesticides sprayed on them. They aren’t living off of the standard American diet.

They aren’t eating fatty meats, sugary deserts, and genetically modified foods. No antibiotics. No alcohol and no tobacco. Their diets not only exclude junk foods that we so often indulge in, they also include superfoods and herbs which are like steroids for our organs and immune system.

They also spend their spare time in nature practicing breathing techniques and meditating which have been proven to improve mental, physical, and emotional health. They keep things simple, get proper sleep, and spend a great deal of time in nature under the sun. When we get a chance to relax in the sun, we feel instantly rejuvenated and call this a “vacation”. Imagine spending a lifetime doing that in the mountains, and combining that with perfect mental, spiritual, and physical well-being.

I do not doubt for a minute that if we all did the things we knew we were supposed to do, that living to be 100 years old would be commonplace. When we treat our bodies right, who knows how long we can live for?

How Much Sleep Do We Really Need?

sleep-man

 

Humans, like all animals, need sleep, along with food, water and oxygen, to survive. For humans sleep is a vital indicator of overall health and well-being. We spend up to one-third of our lives asleep, and the overall state of our “sleep health” remains an essential question throughout our lifespan.

Most of us know that getting a good night’s sleep is important, but too few of us actually make those eight or so hours between the sheets a priority. For many of us with sleep debt, we’ve forgotten what “being really, truly rested” feels like.

To further complicate matters, stimulants like coffee and energy drinks, alarm clocks, and external lights—including those from electronic devices—interferes with our “circadian rhythm” or natural sleep/wake cycle.

Sleep needs vary across ages and are especially impacted by lifestyle and health. To determine how much sleep you need, it’s important to assess not only where you fall on the “sleep needs spectrum,” but also to examine what lifestyle factors are affecting the quality and quantity of your sleep such as work schedules and stress

 

How Much Sleep Do You Need?

– Newborns (0-3 months): Sleep range narrowed to 14-17 hours each day (previously it was 12-18)
– Infants (4-11 months): Sleep range widened two hours to 12-15 hours (previously it was 14-15)
– Toddlers (1-2 years): Sleep range widened by one hour to 11-14 hours (previously it was 12-14)
– Preschoolers (3-5): Sleep range widened by one hour to 10-13 hours (previously it was 11-13)
– School age children (6-13): Sleep range widened by one hour to 9-11 hours (previously it was 10-11)
– Teenagers (14-17): Sleep range widened by one hour to 8-10 hours (previously it was 8.5-9.5)
– Younger adults (18-25): Sleep range is 7-9 hours (new age category)
– Adults (26-64): Sleep range did not change and remains 7-9 hours
– Older adults (65+): Sleep range is 7-8 hours (new age category)

Actually there is no specific definition for success, if you done something you planed for, that is success, if you earned money, that is success,if you have a good family and you can protect them, that is success, and if you have a good relationship with Allah, that is success.

To summarize all that, success refers to the person’s intention or their meaning of success.

Because everyone may have a meaning for success, but we can define it in general: the achievement of an aim or purpose.

There are many types of success:

1. Material Success – money, cars, holidays, jewelery


2. Emotional Success – relationships, self esteem, contentment

3. Intellectual Success – learning, understanding, challenging

4. Spiritual Success – sense of purpose, belonging, reason

5. Physical Success – health, fitness, vitality, appearance

6. Commercial Success – enterprise growth, profit, reputation

7. Evangelical Success – influencing others promoting your ideas

8. Environmental Success – home, garden, saving the planet

9. Time Success – longevity, time management

10. Collective Success – the product of effective teamwork

How to be successful in life:

1.Think big.

2.Find what you love to do and do it.

3. Learn how to balance life.

4- Do not be afraid of failure.

5. Have an unwavering resolution to succeed.

6. Be a man of action.

7. Avoid conflicts.

8. Don’t be afraid of introducing new ideas.

9. Believe in your capacity to succeed.

10- Always maintain a positive mental attitude.

11. Don’t let discouragement stop you from pressing on.

Eventually success depends on human will and purposes, and your success measured by how much you value your time and make a benefit of it.

Racism

635789196679893678-1911487452_racism2028129

 

A race is a group of people who have the same skin color and physical features. There are a few main races in the world, like Europeans or Caucasians, Blacks, or Asians.

Racists are people who believe that some races are better and more important than others. They think that their own race is the best and that other races are physically and mentally inferior to them. In many cases racists feel threatened by others. Racism exists in many countries. Minorities are often discriminated against and have problems getting jobs, houses or the same education as others.

There has been racism throughout history. Western scientists and philosophers have often tried to prove that white people are supreme to others. In the past, governments have often justified their legal and economic system with racism. It has led to slavery and even the cold-blooded murder of whole population groups. Racism has made people afraid of their leaders.

History of Racism

In ancient Greece and Rome, enemies were captured, made prisoners and turned into slaves. In ancient Egypt thousands of foreign slaves built the pyramids of Giza.

When the Age of Exploration began in the 15th century Europeans founded colonies in the New World. The English, Spanish and French tried to civilize Native Americans because they thought they were barbaric and different.

In the United States Blacks were kept as slaves for many centuries. They had to work on the cotton farms for no money at all. After they had been officially freed by Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War they still continued to be discriminated against for decades. Racists groups such as the Ku Klux Klan emerged as a sign of white superiority and hatred towards Blacks.

Australia held racist attitudes towards the Aborigines.  In the early decades of the 20th century Aboriginal children were taken away from their families and civilized in a white environment.
During World War II Nazi Germany murdered over 6 million Jews in the Holocaust, the largest
genocide in history.

In South Africa, the white government followed a policy of segregation which they called Apartheid. Whites, Blacks and Asians lived in separate areas, attended their own churches, hospitals and schools. Apartheid ended in 1990 when Nelson Mandela became the first Black president in the country and the ANC took over power.

Racism today

Although racism may not have the same influence today, it still exists. In Europe, right wing parties are very successful in their attempt to scare people by telling them there are too many foreigners in the country.
In America there is
aggressiveness and often hate towards Hispanics, often considered to be unintelligent.
In sports, black
athletes are often insulted by racist colleagues and spectators.

 

Japanese Experience

Japanese experience .. model for promotion after deterioration

 

 

 

The Japanese post-war economic miracle is the name given to the historical phenomenon of Japan’s record period of economic growth between post-World War II era to the end of Cold War. During the economic boom, Japan was catapulted into the world’s second largest economy (after the United States) by the 1960s. However, it suffered its longest economic stagnation since World War II during the Lost Decade in the 1990s.

 

What is the secret that led Japan to advancement ?

1- The will of revenge of history.

2- Building human.

 

The Japanese immense growth in the contemporary human history is an ideal for all the human nations, Japan’s name became an icon in our minds. Because for its inventions and industries, which it offers to the world, a country that did not gave up for the wars, and continued its progress.

Japan leaders realized that there is no sovereignty without knowledge and workers.

After a tragic catastrophe, Japan defeated by the allied forces in the world war II, many people and politicians lost hope, that Japan would rebuild itself again.

 

after the end of World War II. This awful defeat, the enormous human losses, and unlimited destruction were enough reasons for this country to give up, but the determination and the will of the Japanese hearts helped the country to survive.

 

If we observe the Japanese experience, we would not be surprise, because the whole world is amazed by its experience, in the USA,Europe, and Russia, students and scientists are learning about the Japanese experience, which competing the whole world with its industries and inventions.

Prostitution

prostitution-and-dollars

 

Prostitution: the activity or business of having sex with people for money

Why would they do that?

Is it because they like it ? Or because of the bad economy of the country ?

Or they are not well mannered ?

Whatever the reason for that, this is a very dangerous phenomenon, because of its results after a while.

People may live a miserable life, and suffer their whole life, because of this, because the result is called: Bastards, people who do not have family, just a victim of prostitution.

These people will live in disgrace their whole life, because they do not have identity, and people will look at them with petty, considering them as a sin, especially in the Arab world, they consider it as a real shame.

Government consider prostitution as a profit and good for economy, gaining a high income of it, either by taxes, or Internet websites.

It is extremely clear that persons engaged in prostitution are not happy with their unfortunate choice of profession.

Countless studies report that over 80% of prostitutes say they wish to get out of prostitution. This information does not explain why women do not get out of prostitution. There is plenty of statistically based studies on prostitutes reporting reasons why they do not quit their jobs and do something legitimate.

About 40% of prostitutes are former child prostitutes who were illegally forced into the profession through human trafficking or once were teenage runaways. Many of the runaways fled because their homes were abusive, poor, or did not approve of them.

Female prostitution statistics tell a completely different story. The average female prostitute enters her job when she is only 16 or 17 years of age. Female prostitutes leave prostitution less frequently than their male counterparts. This is mainly because a smaller proportion of them work for pimps.

58% of American prostitutes reported violent assault at the hands of clients. 

With a higher instance of physical violence perpetrated against them, female prostitutes are more likely to get murdered. In a period of five years in Newark, New Jersey, 14 homicide victims were known prostitutes.

There are no statistics that indicate the proportion of orphans who are born of prostitutes.

Prostitutes have an increased incidence of sexually transmitted diseases.

In Europe and western countries committing prostitution nearly in public, but in the Arab world secretly. Either ways all are very dangerous and must be stopped.
