"Ya Allah I seek justice from the wealth they would hoard, from an ummah that neglected the hungry and the poor, that slept on a full stomach while we were starving next door."
One of my favourite signs from Occupy Sydney @ Martin Place, 15.10.11
April 15th marks the two year anniversary of the murder of Italian born Palestinian activist Vittorio Arrigoni.
Vittorio was a member of the International Solidarity Movement, a movement committed to resisting the Israeli occupation of Palestinian land using non-violent methods.
Vittorio put his life on the line for the Palestinian cause. The ISM protected Palestinian fishing vessels from the Israeli navy by acting as human shields - thus preventing Israeli crimes and allowing fishermen to go beyond the 3 miles from shore designated by Israel.
Watch his documentary here.
65 years on.
Imagine the terror and horror they must have felt as they were pushed to the Sea.
Deir Yassin massacre occurred on April 9, 1948, and by May 15th, all of the major cities of Palestine had been cleansed of Arabs and about one half of the 750,000 to 800,000 Palestinian refugees had been ethnically cleansed.
This was the beginning of the expulsion of the Palestinians Arabs from Haifa and from Palestine.
21/12/2012 may not be the day the World Ends, but it may be the day YOUR world ends.
Death can come at any time.
If you are driven by your enemies to succeed, you have already lost. If you are driven by your critics to succeed, you will never please them. If you are driven by your friends to succeed, you will lose many on the way. If you are driven to be your best, you will never see your best.
But, if you are driven to successfully meet your Lord, your enemies will end up respecting you, your critics loving you, your friends close to you, and you yourself no longer concerned of your self. Only then you will Succeed, and may you find Success.
