LOL @ layaway! It's funny and sad (to be honest) to see just how insecure these women really are. I'm looking forward to this movie.
The Arabs are so far behind in EVERYTHING compared to the rest of the world. I mean regardless of Africa (She has her obvious reasons). How friggin' ironic; considering the fact that it was the Arabs who gave the west La Renaissance (say it with a french accent)! Without Arabs and Islam...*sigh* you know the rest!
I read this article...& it was just so ingenious, it's almost as if I wrote it myself specially where he goes on saying...
I also think that, militarily, we have got to abandon the Middle East. By all means, send the Arabs our teachers, our economists, our agronomists. But bring our soldiers home. They do not defend us. They spread the same chaos that breeds the injustice upon which the al-Qa'idas of this world feed. No, the Arabs – or, outside the Arab world, the Iranians or the Afghans – will not produce the eco-loving, gender equal, happy-clappy democracies that we would like to see. But freed from "our" tutelage, they might develop their societies to the advantage of the people who live in them. Maybe the Arabs would even come to believe that they owned their own countries.
But I mean, you Arabs man, Shame on you! *tsk* *tsk*
First place --- W00t...ok sorry!
-- 'Too Failed' Even For
Foreign Policy considers aspects of national
life ranging from "demographic pressures" and "economic decline" to "human
rights" and "factionalized elites." The top 10 failed states,
with their index figures:
Democratic Republic of Congo, 108.7
Central African Republic, 105.4
I want to say I lost hope...
But I wasn't much of an optimist to begin with so I'm not as disappointed as I've imagined I would be. Let's face it, we saw it coming. But it does ultimately sadden me to see the figures straight up. I mean I know we were doin bad and denial was tangible, but this is just cringe-worthy.
Somalia TOOSO Dammit!!
The inhabitants are of Arab, Somali & South Asian origins. They follow the Islamic faith, and speak Soqotri, a Semitic language. Their primary occupation has been fishing, livestock rearing and date cultivation. Recently tourism has also become a means of livelihood
- What a TRAGEDY!
imprison our thoughts,
silence our voices,
and watch injustice slowly rape our independence
and freedom before our very eyes.
Then claim 'what can WE do?'
Why fight for freedom
wen we ourselves made it a burden?
See we are not truly free
until we un-swallow the key
that'll untie our binds
and open this cage we've built.
We're not truly free
until we set ourselves free.
This can apply to both external and internal affairs. Of the nafs, in terms of our own 'selves', we've succumbed to the worship of physical desires and allowed ourselves to fall victim to the bonds of material slavery. & As somalis subjugating through violence, we've become slaves amongst ourselves.
