Physically, in the photos above there is no difference between Muslims who were praying the Eid al-Fitr, Eid al-Adha, Friday prayer or various other prayers. What distinguishes between the Eid prayer with other prayer is the livestock to be slaughtered as a symbol of sacrifice as in the religious history of prophet Abraham.




If only they know that being a sore-eyed goats, torn ears, broken horn and stump of tail are the things that save them more than they die at the butchers hands. Unfortunately they never know the reason, why they have to grow up healthy and good."

2 simple things that I noted from this celebration are:
  • 1. I am so thankful God has created me as the human, not as the animals. It is unthinkable to me before I existed.
  • 2. Islam and Christianity are two brothers from one father (Prophet Ibrahim) and the two mothers (Sarah and Hagar).

If I tell you how I felt when I saw the reaction of a cow when he would be slaughtered, maybe you'll think that I'm doing the anti-meat campaign here. No, it's not my intention. At that time I just saw his eyes brimmed with tears. His neck was tied with a rope on a tree. His tears that fell on his face made my tears run down my face. We stared at each other. I was very sad because I couldn't help him. (Forgive me, but since that time I have been vowing to do something on my own self. I hope you can feel it.)

I will and I can cook my partner's favorite dishes of all-meat recipes, but no consumption of all types of meat in my personal shopping schedule. And I thank him, he can accept this difference between us. (Dahling, ... mwah!)

Cano's death occurred after the killing of an important military commander of the FARC last year, Nono Jojoy, due to the bombings and attacks on the camp. The attack on Cano asserts how the Colombian military leaders are now able to attack the rebels, deep in the mountains and forests.

FARC which is a Marxist group vowed to continue their armed struggle, though Cano was dead. "Peace in Colombia will not come due to demobilization of the rebels, but as a result of the eradication of the cause of the rebellion" the FARC said in a statement.

Although still supported the Colombia's left movement (as the roots of FARC which fight for the Colombia's farmers), but now the majority of Colombians think Cano is nothing more than a criminal financed by drug cartels. Various kidnappings carried out by Cano has caused the deep trauma to the Colombia people and make the image of Colombia worse off in the international eyes.

Russia warns against Iran attack
www.bbc.co.uk
A threatened Israeli attack on suspected Iranian nuclear sites would be a "very serious mistake", warns Russia as the UN is to issue a new report.


http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-11709428

Q&A: Iran nuclear issue
The main issues surrounding Iran's nuclear programme and the United Nations sanctions against it.


http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-15635476

Sarkozy called Israeli PM 'liar'
French President Nicolas Sarkozy called Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu a "liar" in remarks to US President Barack Obama overheard by journalists.

But a day later, what was said by Sarkozy is different. Sarkozy condemns Iran's nuclear program, and said France would act if Israel's security is threatened.

If you are someone who always upholds the justice and always speak the truth but you are just a small person, so your voice will not be heard. Even if you die many times in a single day, no one cares what happens to you. But if you are a quite popular artist, even if your cat's dead, you will still be preached and your cat's obituary will be breaking news, as if it is a great thing to be noticed. Hehehh, well, it's just a sensation. That'a a lifestyle. Artist's life without the sensation is like eating without salt.

No different from the behavior of this advanced nations. Great nations sometimes behave like celebrities who like sensational things.

Honestly, if they all make a mess in this world because they want to show off their strength, make a fuss, just one thing I want to do in the near future. (He, he, he and he, They... haiyaaa this one word is really driving me crazy ....... so I would rather leave it blank) ... and I are getting married. Yes, we'll get married before going into the fourth world war. The third is the era we live today: the war against terrorism.

See the so-called the big countries and developed with the mission blah blah blah, keep peace in the world blah blah blah, blah blah blah combating terrorism, but blah blah blah look at their behavior all. They have no shame at all. They are all embarrassing, blah blah blah.

They would appear to be heroes, to look tough, cool, coolest, for what purpose? Humanity? Don't they realize that they make all of us living fear? Don't they realize that they are all terrorists! They terrorize our lives with the anxiety about the consequences of war.

So here's the deal. If you are pro-Western, you'll be siding with the United States and Israel. If you are pro-East, you will be siding with Iran and Russia. Geez, just look! Let alone to choose this very stupid choice, even if I am asked to choose one between the two men whom I love, ehheeeh .... .... I give up!

America and Russia are equally cool. Israel and Iran are similarly cool. But I wonder, why would they want to do the stupidity with fistfight each other? Don't they realize that the fight will make their appearance to be ugly and not elegant at all? (Oh, they are a matching pair for a dance in the shadow of so many dead bodies lying. Darrling, ... can you reconcile them? They really make us afraid! Do not they think that not everyone likes the war as they do? )

"War is not a picnic! We still wants a picnic, do not want war," Ehud Barak said on Israel Radio, before the International Atomic Agency released the results of its evaluation of Iran's nuclear program. "Israel has not decided to conduct an operation of any kind, "he said.

Barak's statement breaks the Israeli and West media speculation that continue provoking an attack on Iran. And the attack was supported by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Ehud Barak. Barak added that Israel should still be prepared for things undesirable, primarily related to the safety. "All of these options on Iran's nuclear," Barak asked, "Should be opened bluntly."

If I was a teacher who has the power in the classroom, I would kick them all. "If you want a fight, just go into the space! Don't interfere with our lives on earth. We want peace and quiet! America, you should be able to soothe your "beloved child"! Russia, involve your friends, China and Syria to appease Iran! All parties must refrain, for the value of life and humanity!" (But I think Syria will not have time, because Syria has been made "very busy" by fighting the groups of armed civilians. Let alone president Bashar. As a laywoman, I'm very surprised. How can the civil society could get the guns to fight the Syrian military?)

Regarding the role of Arab League to Syria, many people consider that the League has failed to take an active role in bridging the regional peace. The case of Palestine, Lebanon, Iran, Iraq, Egypt are the cases which appear frequently in the past 20 years, and that's not including the issue of terrorism and violence.

For the Israeli-Palestinian problem, in particular the Arab League had issued the Arab League Declaration on the Invasion of Palestine May 15, 1948. And in fact, the Declaration has not produced a goal of Palestinian independence, yet, although surprisingly in 2002 the League for the first time offered of the peaceful relations with Israel with certain requirements, but many of the requirements were rejected by Israel.

In addition, to dampen the volatility of separatism and terrorism, the Arab League has issued a Convention for the Suppression of Terrorism on 22 April 1998. At the leadership level, there was rivalry between Egypt and Iraq. Then the state's form also has many adverse impact on relations between the countries of traditional Monarchy (Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and Morocco) with the new Republic (Egypt, Iraq, Libya).

And, during the U.S. invasion to Iraq, not all countries in the League opposed the invasion, even there were some countries helped the United States by becoming its military bases.

The issue of Israel, terrorism, anti American and globalization remains an important issue and has not been resolved for the existence of this organization.

Well, at least if we see the Arab neighbors are sitting together, then they will be seen more siblings, won't they?

Use the logic. Is it possible, there is a group of military who suddenly shoot you if you only want to drink coffee in the Syria's coffee shop? No matter if you gather all the people in your country just to drink coffee on the roadside in Syria, ... would you all be fired? ... or that as I often said to my partner while we were dancing and prancing like two crazy people in our bedroom, "Come on dahling, Dancing in the street ....!"

So, will the Syrian forces open fire on you at that moment, when you are just dancing in the street? ...



Why are there many civilian casualties? Because they are the armed cvilians. Wow! How can they get the guns and do the shootout on behalf of civil disobedience? Does everyone in Syria may have the weapons to any time can drop their government by unconstitutional means? Wow!

Authoritarian regimes in the Middle East and North Africa have been trying to suppress the online voices of the Arab freedom movement. But Telecomix, a loosely organized international network of techies in Europe, has been helping them find ways around government censors.

Berlusconi's wife at the time, Veronica Lario, said she was seeking a divorce because of his constant flirtations with younger women. She criticized her husband's attendance at the girl's birthday party, saying she was surprised "because he never came to the 18th of any of his children, even though he was invited."

Berlusconi confers with Italian politician Alessandra Mussolini, granddaughter of the Italian dictator, during a vote of confidence in the lower house of parliament on May 14, 2008.

Karima El Mahrough, a Moroccan belly dancer nicknamed Ruby Rubacuori, is at the heart of the recent prostitution trial involving Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi. She claims to have been given $10,000 by Berlusconi at private parties in which the prime minister and a group of young women performed a ritual dance of sorts called "bunga bunga" in the nude. When she was arrested by Milan police in May 2010 for theft, Berlusconi allegedly made two phone calls to the police to press for her release, claiming that she was the niece of former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.

Berlusconi, if you still can survive ... ehhee .... I will treat my partner to eat pizza until we will throw up. Believe it! (Dahling, I will say to you later about it, right now I'm hearing strange whispers in my heart... doo be doo dam dam )

"A person has regrets at a time in his life and looks back but unfortunately you sometimes regret when it is too late"  
(Mansour Daou)


Are they paid in saying what they think?



As-Salamu Alaykum, Colonel. Because I believe the soul can't die, then I believe you can hear the prayers which I have prayed in silence. A prayer that can only be heard by the ear as sharp as the silence. Hopefully you get a proper place in your afterlife. God, the Most Forgiving and All-Knowing will always be with you. There's a time when the God's hand will work a lot better than what humans can do. I believe it.

Give me the wisdom
Oh, God
Such as a telescope
High above the galactic
humble on earth

Wasn't the benefits of knowledge the essence of life digger?

Through the microscope
or telescope
Please guide me, this bonehead
in finding a meaningful shape

ISRAEL - IRAN - RUSSIA - U.S.A






We have emerged as the winner of the battle that has forced us to accept the ethical standards of the enemy that is so degrading to human dignity. But on the contrary, instead of feeling liberated from the enemy's standards and be free to restore the sanctity of human life and safety of people who do not fight, in fact we just take over that low standards to be our own standards.

Indeed we are in the period of knowledge. But this is far from what actually I want to say. I am reminded in this connection to a young man who had just married a wife who wasn't very attractive. The young man was asked whether he felt happy or not. Then he replied, "If I tell the truth, then I have to lie."

Likewise with me. Let us consider an Indian who may not be civilized, to listen whether his experience is less rich or whether he is less happy than the average civilized man. There is a very meaningful sense in the fact that children from all over the civilized world thrilled to play for the Indians imitate.

Why is the wonderful knowledge which saves the work and make life easier just to bring a little happiness to us? The simple answer is, because we have not learned to use it appropriately yet.

In battle, the knowledge/science leads us to poison and butchering each other. In peace it makes our lives chased by time and full of uncertainties. The science that should free us from job which exhausting the spiritual even makes ​​man as a machine slaves, where after long days and monotonous, most of them go home in disgust and have to keep shaking to obtain the ration of income which does not amount too much.

You will remember about a woman (a half old) who sing a bad song. I am the one who sing that song, even so, with a willingness to show an effect.

It's not enough that you understand the science so that your work will improve the human blessings. The attention to people themselves and their destiny, the attention to the unsolved big problem from the work setting and the material equalization should always be the main interest of technical endeavor, in order
the fruit of creation of our thinking will be a blessing and it's not a curse to humanity.

Don't forget it in the midst of so many of our diagrams and equations.

By the way, ... Mr.Putin, you seem very personable.

"Thank you for your perception! I like your romantic side, even if I do not always comment and I'm glad that you're in my circle of friends."
(Courtesies by: Wolfgang A. Gerhardt)

Wolfgang A.Gerhardt : May be you like this Sunday collage

Cisca Zarmansyah : Before today, there never was a person doing this to me. You create a simple matter to look special. This is a special thing for me.

Cisca Zarmansyah : Thank you. I love it. I love you, my friend.

CieL- FreYa Ceastle : Hmm, he's so nice...















"I am me.
In all the world,
there is no one else exactly like me.
Everything that comes out of me
is authentically mine,
because I alone chose it --
I own everything about me:
my body,
my feelings,
my mouth,
my voice,
all my actions,
whether they be to others or myself.
I own my fantasies,
my dreams,
my hopes,
my fears.
I own my triumphs and successes,
all my failures and mistakes.
Because I own all of me,
I can become intimately acquainted with me.
By so doing,
I can love me
and be friendly with all my parts.
I know there are aspects about myself that puzzle me,
and other aspects that I do not know
-- but as long as I am friendly
and loving to myself,
I can courageously and hopefully
look for solutions
to the puzzles and ways
to find out more about me.
However I look and sound,
whatever I say and do,
and whatever I think and feel at a given moment in time
is authentically me.
If later some parts of how I looked,
sounded,
thought,
and felt
turn out to be unfitting,
I can discard that which is unfitting,
keep the rest,
and invent something new
for that which I discarded.
I can see,
hear,
feel,
think,
say, and do.
I have the tools to survive,
to be close to others,
to be productive,
and to make sense
and order out of the world of people
and things outside of me.
I own me,
and therefore,
I can engineer me.
I am me,
and I am okay."
