On love, Conditions, Obstacles and Irrationality

Published

on

Do we fall instantly in love? No, because that wouldn’t be real, we can get a crush on someone and by time, that crush develops. But can we stop it? That click you get at the sight of that one person, is it stoppable?

I believe not. Because once you click, there’s no going back.

Let me count with you the many clicks that happen in reaction to that person’s most little actions, they laugh, click. They smile, click. They blush, click. The tease you, click. They make you laugh, click, click. They make you cry, cl..ick, click. They mess with their hair, click. They mess with yours, click.

Let me put some math in there to make this article sounds smart, the amount of clicks you get per day is directly proportional to the time you’ll fall in love, in other words, the more the clicks are, the faster you’ll fall in love.

This is love, and below are the conditions:

Girl code

You’re not to click with your best friend’s ex, because this is the rule, you can’t fall in love with your friend’s ex, but what if that one person is the one you’re meant to be with, what if that person brings you happiness and ultimate joy, peace and serenity, what if that person is the one? And you never got to find out because girl code. Guess you just have to deal with it, right?

Your ex

They said your ex had become an ex for a reason, true, what if it was bad timing? What if it was immaturity? What if now is a good time and we’re mature? Guess you won’t find out because ‘integrity’ and ‘dignity’ shall stop you.

Your complete opposite

That person that everyone tells you is not right for you, who’s different in almost everything and does things the opposite way, you fight a lot and people speak about how you two could never end up together and you start believing them, after all it’s what everyone says, except for your heart who thinks the complete opposite. But who listens to their heart anymore?

The irrationality is in clicking with someone from the first place and you know isn’t just right, clicking with someone who goes against the rules, how could you allow your heart to sink so deep? How did you allow your mind to drift to places to where that person is? How can you stop loving someone when all what you do is think of him? Why think of him? How could you?

Silly, isn’t it? To ask someone to stop clicking, to set boundaries to the one thing in life that happens spontaneously, the one thing that has the power to get you off your feet and up in the air, but then comes these boundaries and get hold of your feet, and bring you down to your knees. Because conditions, because rationality.

Israa Al-Ghareeb: A Story of Monstrosity and Cruelty

Published

By

Israa Al-Ghareeb, a 21-year old Palestinian victim, victim of cruelty and injustice in a world who wrongfully views honor, a victim of cold blooded murder by her very own family members…

The incident provoked the entire Arab world who till this moment are still sharing her story and flooding the internet with the hashtag #كلنا_اسراء_غريب, and now everyone knows the case of this young lady and how she was killed over a family dispute.

 

 

 

Here’s the story of Israa Al-Ghareeb, and what the action that must be taken. 

Israa Al-Ghareeb is, well was, an aspiring makeup artist who recently she got engaged and one day she went out with her fiancé and her sister to get to know each other like any newly engaged couple, and to document the moment, the sister took a video of both Israa and her fiancé.

Hell let loose when the video was shared with Israa’s father and brothers by her cousin, filling their minds with lies and that Israa is dishonoring the family’s name. The lies that led her father and brothers to brutally hit her, causing her a fraction in her spine which lead to her hospitalization.

Later, her father and brothers came back and continued to hit her and one nurse was able to record the beating and her screaming for help. In the end, Israa got hit in the head which caused a heart attack and resulted in her death… a brutal one.

The ones who are supposed to protect, ended up to be the ones who kill. The ones who were supposed to be her safe haven, let hell loose on her.

Now, this is surely not the first case and shamefully won’t be the last as long as this is the mentality of so many parents and siblings who believe this is the way to honoring their name. This is nothing but pure monstrosity, one that no religion ever called for and is nothing but sexist traditions that are not part of any religion.

Justice must be sought by sharing Israa’s story, spreading awareness about the case and plead for people’s to understand. Understand the unfairness and cruelty that girls go through in our Arab world, and in order to put limit to it, there must be strict laws and rules that put an end to family abuse.

 

We pray to god for Israa and any young lady suffering a similar fate.

‘Bela Plastic’: Initiative Launched in Dahab To Limit The Use of Plastic

Published

By

Bela Plastic‘ campaign is an initiative launched in Dahab in an effort to protect the environment and marine life in Dahab.

President of the City Council of Dahab, Tarak El-Baz announced the launch of the initiative in early July, the campaign will include workshops and trainings to help raise awareness about the danger that plastic use impose on the marine life. These workshops will be targeted towards the hotels and restaurants, where plastic is most used.

Moreover, banners and warning signs will be placed across the city of Dahab as another way of spreading awareness and caution to tourists. What’s even more impressive is that volunteer tourism organizations and a number of dive centers will take part in the initiative by cleaning up the beaches of Dahab.

Such a remarkable step follows a decision that was taken three months ago by Governor Ahmed Abdullah to ban the single-use plastic in the Red Sea governorate. 

Another initiative was launched in South Sinai reserve called “Khali al-Bahar Yetnafes”, also targeting the hotels and resorts. Aiming to raise more awareness on the critical issue of single-use plastic.

We hope to see the results of these initiatives very soon, and for the outcome to be apparent in the next few months, especially with Dahab being a touristic destination for its environment and stunning marine life that attracts many tourists, preserving its sites is certainly a must.
