Egypt horizons…between animals and people…modesty is the key

The animal lover inside me cannot but react especially in front of a dog. My dogs suffered for too long justice Luc by with me In a neighborhood inside a city in a country within a culture that looks at dogs as impure. In Egypt it should not be different . Something I always bow with respect whenever I visit turkey is the status of dogs and cats there. I am will be a happy street dog living in Turkey . Clean, comfortable and very well fed. I strongly believe that a country with such treatment to dogs and cats is a country that builds human beings.

In my country , the moment the dog passes by someone’s side a big scream is heard as if a monster appeared or a plague is hitting in the area. Some months ago , they announced for a prize in Gaza for 10 shekels for each dog that is killed.not many years ago , all the street dogs in Jericho and other cities were poisoned to death.

I did not expect dogs and cats to be better treated in egypt , where it is really hard to feel human beings, but yet, despite the miserable situation. Of humans and animals , animals, in the case of dogs had the privilege of life . That dog and his tribe in alKarnak probably were here since the Pharos. They as the people are not Pharos anymore , but they live with n the accepting fact of life turbulences with modesty that is unbelievably overwhelming .. it makes you forget all the annoying things you pass by or endure. You pass by a starving dog and he still sits in-front if you peaceful .you talk to people , pass them by, you always find welcoming and appreciating gestures … you cannot but think that at the end it is always about people …. and animals.

Exploring my own Shoes ... somehow my walk , my way ... Being a woman is one thing . One important thing of originally two things. However, living in a global patriarchal dominance makes one thing dominant of another . A lifetime struggle of women resilience for being the one thing they are Women . All the resilience of being a woman is another ONE thing . For being a Moslem woman is another thing . Being a Moslem woman living in an Occupied land is definitely a totally other thing. What if you add divorce to this ? Being a Woman, a Moslem , a Palestinian and Divorced … makes the introduction to living in my shoes… Living in a Shoe of a Woman. PS. English is not my first language.. I know I often need to edit , however, there is something in the power of the 'click send' button.. ever since I did it the first time .. I enjoy clicking directly from my heart...unedited...

  1. “Equal consideration for all” including animals. For me, this philosophy means all sentient being. Looking down on, or treating animals badly is a reflection of the person’s ignorance in understanding love.
