Having a fruitless attempt to work on my paper resulted in the following:
Watching cloud atlas; some 3 hours movie, still having to digest it, too rational, great actors, I am not sure they were in the complete hook with the plot.
Discovering sky news in Arabic, and well, it is FIFA, Da’esh, and of course Palestine is always on News.
Facebook is quiet after a long night with the Brazil – Croatia match.
A discussion with an Iraqi Christian friend about the cruelty, savagely nature of Islam. A hardline focus, changing our usual monolingual argument, since he is a specialist of theology. From a distance he missed my new developments and my Islamic philosophy track … the enjoyable part was that I was practicing on my next week presentation. I know it was tricky since I was handling a discussion with my assignment book next to me “ The church in the shadow of the mosque,” which actually made me eloquent!!)).
The Palestinian chaos makes me speechless. I can get to the issue of the Israel-Palestine question, the interreligious debate among the three religions since the seventh century onward; I can try to rationalize what is happening in Syria and Iraq (I mean try to understand what is going on). I can follow on teen shootings and the U.S., on why Bashar won the elections, on why Shakira came back with her song and also Jenifer Lopez to the Mondial …
But the Palestinian issue is really too confusing to my little head …
A quite ‘dear’ conversation is taking place between Livni and Malki in a snapshot that explains some of our mysteries. Our ambassador to the U.K asks Abbas to recognize Israel as a Jewish state. Palestinian Police hit and separate a demonstration that supports the prisoners. While Netanyahu is passing laws to force-feeding prisoners in hospitals. While the inmate’s cause is becoming another righteous cause, the Palestinian Authority seems to be walking in another path. The whole Palestinian cause has been leaked in to become a case. While Jerusalem stands in a three meters photo in the Tashrifat hall and seems to make, them reach home, while a sheik is lecturing about Jerusalem.
(Now I am watching Palestine TV, and it is a live coverage to the Friday prayer). And since Jerusalem is out of reach, or not in the plan of a future Palestine, exactly like refugees, and now also the prisoners … there is an apparent deal that is going on with complete secrecy that its price will be whatever is left of us as people…
I have to stop here .. this Friday Prayer … killed my imagination
