A little rant of mine on everything going on in our world at the moment.

My first blog posting of the new year, so a belated happy new years to all our readers.... all two of you.

First I'd like to share an amusing video with you
Your welcome

Next I'd like to talk about a topic which I think everyone has heard about
and has been moved by the events that followed, and that is Israel's
illegal seige on Gaza. Yes, illegal
Illegal why? Several reasons which I believe Hatem has covered in one
of his previous postings.
I'd like to make a comment though on what president Barack Obama
made in one of his pre inauguration speeches. He said that if someone
was attacking him with rockets while his children are sleeping he'd fight
back and that Israel has every right to fight back.
I'm sorry Mr Obama but I believed you to be an educated man. However,
an educated person does not make foolish statements such as those.
I know from my postings it seems that I am critical of Mr Obama, it may
seem that I don't like him, but your wrong I'm just making points on his
faultings. Why do I say a person who is educated would not make a
comment like that? Because a person who is educated ( and I don't
mean edcucated in the sense of degrees and honors and everything),
a person who is educated looks into a topic before making blank
I don't think you know this Mr Obama but Israel broke the ceasefire while
you were partying over your presidency win. Yes, Israel broke the ceasefire
, I'm sorry if i disappointed our fox news viewing readers but that is the fact.
On election day 2008 Israel fired rockets into Gaza, Hamas responded.

I myself am not entirely convinced with Hamas, but as Mr Obama said, if
someone is firing rockets at you while your children are sleeping you have
the right to defend yourself.

Another point I have to raise about the seige is (and excuse my language)
Where the f*** is the international community???? When Russia invaded
Georgia last summer it was all over the news. Why? Because the western
media opposes Russia, whereas they are in aid of the Israeli cause.
Western supremacy controlling media at its best. Not only was the seige
on Gaza illegal it was inhumane. Over 1300 killed and over 4000 injured
compared to 10s of dead Israelis is inproportionate attacks according to
Israel. YES IT IS inproportionate you dumb f***, just not the way your
describing it.I do not understand how the whole world could just watch a
massacre like that and do nothing about it? Where is our empathy? Where
is our compassion?
Lives are being taken, families broken, a country in carnage. And all
America the world's superpower can do is withdraw its vote from a UN
resolution seeking peace.
That my friend reminds me of a saying "with great power comes great
responsibility" (yes I know its from spiderman) and the USA is not at all
being responsible with the power that it has.

I don't understand how a country of 300 million individuals can be controlled by a tiny zionist state. Yes, controlled. If tomorrow, the UK decided to
attack some country, the US wouldn't allow it. However Israel decides to
commit genocide and the American government starts singing "you can do whatever you like".

Next topic, the credit crunch. coming soon.....

Barack Hussein Obama on Tuesday the 20th of January, has become the 44th president of the United States of America

It was a moment in which 100's of millions of people around the world watched, from the biggest of cities to the tiniest of villages, a moment that 'defines a generation'. Although we watch the American Presidential Inauguration we must consider that America and the American President will become the most powerful man on earth "officially". In times of crisis, economically and wars and conflict the world seeks for new hope and a dream of a better tommorow. The inaugural speech personally was captivating and had many themes and messages which struck hard and rough but at many times it was promise of rebirth and prosperity.

The main themes of the address include the very critical financial crisis that will be one of President Obama's toughest challenges. U.S. foreign policy, domestic issues, and a message of change, renewed freedom and leadership.

The address was in many ways a head-smacking of former president Bush, who disagreed on many of Obama's initiatives such as funding of embryonic stem cell research, which was one of the first changes made to federal spending in which Obama removed the limit of federal spending on this research. Facing a changing world and the leading role of America Obama said 'we must lead once more' which is an indication of the fact that the influence of America as a nation on the world is deminishing.

To the muslim world Obama addresses the fact that both the U.S. and the muslim world must find common interests and help each other, and to defeat the threat of terrorist violence that plagues stability, prosperity, and development.

Yet, at the end of the day one asks himself. Is this 'New' president all that he seems? Is he as good a leader and a changer as he is good at speaking(rather amazing actually, one to remember)? Well we will watch carefully at his actions and his initiatives especially in the first crucial 100 days of office, which will definetly include th closing down of the Guantanamo Bay Prison.

Gaza. Solidarity and Sympathy

The new year has come in with some bad news, Gaza. Although we must always look at the previous years' problems we must not forget the good times we've had even if it was just for a few seconds. Appreciating every moment and remembering the good always creates postive hope for the future. However, for the people of Gaza the New Year continues to bring in oppression and so I offer my sympathies, since there is little I can do apart from donate money, to the people of Gaza. May justice serve your cause and may God honour that who is righteous.

My condolences and respect and pity for all those who have died in this absurd conflict, however these are my thoughts on this:

1.It is ironic that Israellis call Hamas terrorists, when Israel has occupied the "Official" Palestinian land for over 40 years since 1967 and till this very day remains an occupant of these lands. Is this not terrorism is this not disrespecting other peoples' rights. Israel has continued to call any movement against it terrorists such as the PLO, Hezbolla and Hamas. When all these organizations are not aiming to kill for the sake of killing but defend the rights of Palestinians and voice the oppression they are feeling. If Israel really wanted to achieve 'peace" then they would have left these lands to the Palestinians quite a while ago. They still occupy the Golan hights even though it is rightfully owned by the State of Syria. Is this not terrorism.

2. The situation in Gaza has been dire following the total blockade of the strip. People struggle to find basic neccessities such as bread and clean water. Which is causing catastrophic humanitarian problems.

3. Hamas should not blame the Arabs, for example the Egyptians for not supporting them because when they ended the cease-fire and started shooting rockets at southern Israel they did not negotiate with the Egyptian and Arab governments they did not let them know of their strategy or motives. and so the questions is should a country such as egypt base and change it foreign policy to suite the organization of Hamas. Is this justifiable.

4. I personally find that Hamas is not doing a good political job. It has to learn to control it's anger for the sake of it's people. By keeping the area stable and providing necessities. Do not throw stones at someone if your house is made from glass.

5. The Palestinians within themselves have to come up with a suitable agreement. The same agenda, even if they have to compromise when they don't agree with certain issues. These are peoples' lives at risk and their future which has to be considered more seriously.

6. Israel has previously had a plan to deport palestinains to the sinai, egyptian land, and take over the gaza strip. The plan is still not off the table, and the opening of the egyptian-palestinian border, rafah, might trigger and mass migration or continuous migration of Palestinians from Gaza into egypt strengthening the Israeli plan. Finally. After years of negotiation on the side of the PLO and Mahmoud Abbas' government in the West Bank and the rest of the Arab states with Israel there has not been one positve action taking, a slight improvement might be israel leaving the gaza strip. So is fighting the only way to solve problems?
