A bomb at a Sunni mosque in Baquba, Iraq, northeast of Baghdad, killed dozens after Friday Prayer. May 17, 2013. Adem Hadei.
These images have become the norm. The violence has never stopped. There was never a war that was won. From a dictatorship, to military occupation, to civil war and what is looking to inevitably end in complete anarchy. This is the continuous reality for those who live in Iraq, THIS. This is what innocent civilians, who leave their homes expecting to complete Jummah prayers are subjected to.
Every. Fucking. Day.

Let’s forget these times and dream of nicer ones
مازالك بلا شىء ما فيك تخسر شىء
Since you still have nothing, then you have nothing to lose
و أنا مليت من عشرة نفسىAnd I’m sick of being alone
كان بدى غير العالم مش عارف كيف العالم غيرنى
I wanted to change the world, I don’t know how the world changed me
كان بدى احمل السماء وهلأ أنجق حامل نفسى
I wanted to carry the sky, now I can’t even carry myself

A couple of days ago Israel decided to launch a tirade of attacks against Syria, Israel justified its actions with claiming that it was a form of self defence. The foreign minister for Israel had said that they specifically targeted a carrier holding weapons for/from Hezbollah. So by this argument, Israel had broken international law, and killed innocent civilians all to ‘destroy weapons’, however, our past experiences with Israel makes us all know too well that anything Israel says is complete bullshit. It’s self-evident that the very purpose and nature of this attack was not only to further destabilise Syria, but to provoke an attack from Hezbollah/Iran so Israel could play the victim complex.
But even with all that, Israel’s attack is not in the least bit surprising or what is truly frustrating me about this escalation within the conflict. The pro-FSA idiots, who have championed Israel’s attack because it has damaged the Syrian government, do you not for a second understand the perpetuation of these attacks? Do you not see who you are allies with? Do you not, for even a second, contemplate just how untrustworthy this so called “revolution” is, considering Israel is on your side?
What’s worse with all of that is I have seen countless people who call the Israeli attack a “carefully planned piece of propaganda” in which supposedly, the Syrian government WANTED to be attacked, so that we are all fooled into siding with the Syrian govt…. yes, because that doesn’t make you sound like a deranged lunatic at all. These attacks, and this pseudo revolution itself is just the West stopping at nothing to take the Axis of Resistance down. Do. Not. Let. It. Happen.
This was incredibly sweet, I love you. Thank you. But erm. How on Earth has Anon heard my accent?
why do people call me exotic wth i’m not a fruit
*head inflates* thank you
Neocolonialism: completely destroying a country up until the point where the only form of salvation that they have, is asking the perpetrator of that destruction for help, and only offering that help when trade is completely in the imperialists favour.
“Yes, we’ll help rebuild your country after destroying. But first, we accept payments in the form of any natural resources such as oil, copper, aluminium, gold, etc.”
A lot of you have become so sectarian when it comes to the conflict, you are directly part of the problem and in no way shape or form, should ever voice your opinion on the Syrian conflict. To simply label the conflict as a Sunni/Shia problem, is to simply label the Cold War as a war of ideologies. No respectable historian would ever say the Cold War was simply due to communism/capitalism, which is why you cannot label the Syrian conflict as that. What is happening is far more deep-rooted and troubling. What we are seeing is neocolonialism at its very finest, doing anything possible to take down the last line of defence within the Middle East.
I am a human. I can be hypocritical, I can be hurtful, and I can be judgemental. I am human, and worst of all I can spend hours contemplating every single flaw of mine without ever grasping the concept that I am good enough. Or that I can be good enough, because I know I’m not, and whenever I come into realisation with that a part of me elevates. I spend most of my time wondering what is wrong with me, how I could improve myself and I do it all to the point where it could be unbelievably self destructive. I do it to the point where I have sleepless nights. But that’s fine with me, because destroying myself and my accomplishments gives me every reason to be stern with myself. I have an unrelenting ability to downplay my successes, and when I do I find that it is the only thing that makes me feel remotely human. Because it is in realising my failures, and diminishing my performance in no matter what I do, that I find a fulfilling nature within me that tells me that “you are not good enough.” It’s knowing that I’m not that makes me feel, ironically, so much better. I like being hard on myself, and I thoroughly enjoy making myself better. I am human. I set expectations for myself that I know are unattainable, just so I could be hard on myself for not being capable of achieving the potential that I know I am not capable of. I am a human, and I am tired. I am tired of all the expectations raised on me, because I have set enough for myself. I do not need to feel a constant tirade of attacks against me by my friends and family. No. I understand my flaws, I grasp my flaws, I am my flaws. I do not need to be passive aggressively shamed by them or humiliated about it. I am not perfection and nor am I damnation. I can be the epitome of confidence and then I can turn into a hollow insecure mess. I am a human.
*cries* oh be quiet you
Every single time one of these attacks happen, by a Muslim person of colour, the whole Muslim company has to group together, defend themselves and tell the world that we are not terrorists. STOP. We have absolutely NOTHING to prove, and don’t need to tell mind numbingly stupid racists that we are not responsible for these attacks.
