Act Now: You Are Responsible

Recently Isis stoned a woman to death for adultery in Syria, they publish a horrible video recording their crime on you tube. Many things like this action were committed by these groups of killers who were supported by many stakeholders from the first world who is deafening our ears of talking about human rights.
Youtube deleted the video, and Isis published it again. Nobody denounces the crime, crimes became ordinary in our world, armies will move for profit and profit only.
All world are responsible about such a crime, silence will spread radicalism and terrorism all over the world, at that time radicalism and terrorism will be stronger than us. So Act Now. 


I just created a new petition and I hope you can sign -- it's called: Stop Isis crimes against humanity in Middle East
This issue is very important to me, and I’m trying to get to 200 signatures and could use your help.
Read more about it and sign it here:
Campaigns like this always start small, but they grow when people like us get involved -- please take a second right now to help out by signing and passing it on.
Thanks so much,

America and ISIS

By: Fateh Kassab

Do the Americans believe and trust their administrations concerning the foreign policy?
Are the administrations trustworthy enough to be followed without questioning their decisions?
Are these administrations real representatives of the American voters?
Can these administrations act against the will of the lobbies that control the domestic and foreign policies?
As a neutral observer, I think that the Americans deserve better administrations than those that rule their country. The tax payers- the middle and the poor classes- fund the wars that the weapons and the oil lobbies arouse around the world for the benefits of those lobbies only. The tax payers get nothing in return. No health insurance, no decent education and even no work for the unemployed. They are almost slaves for those lobbies. But do these unjust policies only harm the Americans? The answer, I think, is no.
The foreign American policy is based on creating conflicts in the different parts of the world and managing them to achieve the high interest of America- the one that achieves benefits for the lobbies. The ISIS organization is a good example for this theory. To understand how this organization came to life, a brief historical background is needed. ISIS is the spoiled child of Al Qaeda, and Al Qaeda was formed in the 1970s by the CIA and the friend regimes of USA in the Middle East- the Arabian Gulf countries. They encouraged Arab and Muslim young men to start a holy war against the Soviet Union in Afghanistan. The volunteers were trained, funded and armed by USA and its friends in the Middle East. The real aim of that “holy” war was to exhaust the Soviet Union- the competing super power for USA. During the war, the Regan administration hosted the Islamic fighters, allowed them to raise money in the USA and called them “freedom fighters”. After the withdrawal of the Soviet army from Afghanistan, the Americans, as usual, tried to get rid of those fighters, because they can no more bring any benefits for the Americans and their friends. As a result of that, Al Qaeda organization announced a holy war against “the crusaders” and attracted more people to embrace its beliefs and fight with it. Because the same regimes that supported and armed them to fight the Soviet Union in Afghanistan, started chasing and hunting them. The other reason for war against USA was because the Americans supported corrupt and dictator regimes in the Middle East. These regimes oppressed and chased the moderate and liberal parties that supported democracy and human rights, which helped the fanatic fighters to gain more popular support and sympathy. Decades later, when the Arab peoples revolted against these dictators, the Americans chose to help and support the Muslim Brotherhood against the liberal and moderate parties in the Middle East. All these factors resulted in catastrophic consequences on the world.
The peoples in the Middle East have profound beliefs that the American administrations have only one priority in their agendas, the interests only. The democracy and human rights can wait or even go to hell, because they are something the Middle Easterners do not deserve. A proof of that was when ISIS occupied vast areas in Iraq and Syria, the Pentagon did not act till ISIS threatened the Kurdish allies in north Iraq. They did not say or do anything concerning the massacres against the innocent civilians in the area. The air strikes against ISIS in Kobani did not stop or even weaken the military abilities of the organization because these strikes were in the desert and on empty facilities that the ISIS fighter abandoned before the air campaign. Why does this happen? Simply because the Turkish government-Muslim Brotherhood- is a member of the NATO and wants to get rid of the Kurdish Labour Party, which fights for the freedom of the Kurdish people, and against the oppression of the Turkish government.
To be frank, we, in the Middle East, do not trust any intentions of the American administrations. We also think that these administrations will keep on supporting dictatorships and creating more conflicts in the Middle East to protect the interests of the oil and weapons lobbies. The result is: to the hell with the American tax payers and the bloodshed in the Middle East.

I am really alone

© 2014 by THE BIRD(http://www.thebirdali.com/)

Today I'm not happy
I won't laugh out loudly
I won't collect flowers from the narrow path
Near the mysterious forest
Because your deep look talks about hunger
And deprivation
You have a story without location
Without warm details
No finger to touch the taut tendon
No music to flame the crazy body
No title to read the bad luck
No jerk to feel love
Drums of madness says
Haaaaaaa … Haaaaaaa
Forests of sadness laugh at me
I'm sorry to say that I'm really alone

Mission Impossible

By: Fateh Kassab

To be a teacher in a third world country means that you are out of reach. You are in a planet unknown.
If you plan to be a teacher, you have to know in advance that you are on your own. As soon as you graduate from the university you are directly thrown into a classroom without any training or help. After that, your principal or supervisor expects you to be a super teacher and have the ability to achieve miracles with nothing to use or no one to guide or help you.

Another shock that you are going to experience is that you have no choice in your career. For example, you might be assigned to teach grade six, but the next day you have to teach grade 9. In addition to that, the school lacks almost everything. You do not find cardboards and markers to make a teaching aid, for example. If you ask for advice to improve ways of teaching, you will get nothing from your colleagues or may be laughed at because you are “weird”.

Another obstacle you will for sure encounter is the lack of real training. I have been a teacher for nearly twenty two years. The first real training that I had was three years ago; and guess what, it was not held by the ministry of education. It was done by an independent academy. Another real training that I had was held at AMIDEAST in 2013.

If we put the things we mentioned above together, the result will be unqualified teachers. This means that students will be the victims of such a collapsed system of education. But do we really know where this tragedy will lead the future of our countries to? I claim that I know. I think the result will be more collapse in educational system which will result in more dangerous consequences; a cultural collapse and greater political, economic and social corruption.
