Isn’t it just too
beautiful to find someone
who has so many common interests,
someone who cares, someone who enjoys talking to you,
someone who reminds you of God, someone who has same beliefs of you. Always remember it’s a gift. Look
I guess I gotta be kinda friendless at school for now, shocking what influence they can have, time to let go and move on and Allah(SWT) knows best
Something I find curious is the apparent taboo in media and academia surrounding the words ‘Zionist’ and ‘Zionism’. To utter them, even in the most seemingly objective and academic terms, will usually quickly result in accusations of anti-semitism. It is almost as if someone, or something, has declared that these things do not exist, and if they do exist they are solely the creation of sick minds twisted by an irrational hatred of Judaism and Jews. To call out someone as replicating and promoting Zionist ideology for advocating and defending the occupation of Palestine by the State of Israel is to invite the charge of calling for the destruction of the entire global Jewish diaspora. Zionism is as much an ideological construct as Nazism, Stalinism, Maosim, Social Democracy, Terrorism, and Anarchy. Why is it that academics and politicians can build entire careers on discussion and utilisation of those ideologies but the moment someone wants to talk about Zionism they are beyond the pale. There are countless books on Ayran Supremacy, the Final Solution, and the Holocaust. There is a great desire to understand what gave rise to the genocidal impulse of the Third Reich. Millions of Jews were driven from their homes and slaughtered. There is an abiding sense of horror and disgust at the crimes of Hitler, but only three years after that tragedy up to a million Palestinians were ethnically cleansed from their homes and hundreds if not thousands slaughtered by terrorist groups seeking to ‘purify’ and ‘open up’ their own Vaterland. These groups were driven by Zionist ideology. They carried out, on a smaller scale, a holocaust of the Palestinian people. It even has name - Al Nakba, but you would be hard pressed to find many people in western media who are even aware that it happened. It has been silenced. European shame has driven us to remember the crimes of the Nazis, even if the ideology and hatred never really went away. What there seems to be no shame about is how Europe, and specifically my own country the UK, enabled and then whitewashed the theft of an entire country from its people, almost as if they believed two wrongs could make a right.
For those who make their inner thoughts wholesome,
God will make their outer manifestations wholesome,
For those who work on God’s religion,
God will assure them of sufficiency in their worldly affairs.
And for those who do right in their relationship with God,
God will improve their relationships with other people
