Detaining nonfasting​ people in Ramallah


This is really scandalous!

While Israel kills a Palestinian young man in the village of Nabi Saleh, not far from Ramallah. The PA forces arrest around thirty people sitting in a cafe in the city center of Ramallah. Not only were the detainees accused of not fasting, but also with gambling.

The public shame that took place in the city center, when three police vehicles came and arrested the people is unforgivable.

What are they different from Hamas Islamic governance? What would have they said if Hamas did the same in Gaza?

I seriously feel speechless… embarrassed …. to admit that this is really taking place.

Then we blame Daesh?

We blame fundamentalism?

What do you call this?

How do you want people to live in a place where they don’t even have the freedom to eat or not to eat when they want?

Ramallah and all other cities are not cities inhabited by Muslims only. And Muslims as well may not fast.

Fasting is obligatory for those who want to fast. The rest is peoples choice and responsibility before God .. not before the government…

Meanwhile ….

Israel detains the funeral of Izzideene Tamimi!!!

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. Worldwide we have different faiths making people adhere to their own beliefs. Whether it is the Christians in America trying to make everyone think we are a Christian nation when there are so many different faiths that are practiced – and then wanting to persecute people of other religions. Everywhere. It is everywhere. People have the right to believe what they believe to be the truth for them and in a perfect world be allowed to practice it without someone else wanting to kill them for it. It takes away the reason why you practice your faith. Your faith should allow you to be happy and to live a life that teaches you to be a better person. But now, everyone wants to say “I am right and you are wrong and I will destroy you if you don’t do as I do.” The reason for having faith is lost. It now gives too many people the right to hate.
