Good and evil terrorism!

Like any other person in the Middle East, I followed what happened in Paris carefully.
To start with, I condemn killing people no matter what the reason is. But what attracted my attention and aroused my questions was the speed in which the French security services found, arrested and killed the people who did this terrible act. Also the reports that presented details about the terrorists were somehow, shocking.
The French government knew every tiny detail about them and about their activities. The question is "why didn't the French government stop them when they were spreading their hatred among young people and recruiting them to fight in Syria, Libya or any other area in the Middle East?
The other question is" Is terrorism allowed and encouraged in the Middle East and forbidden in Europe and USA? Again, I condemn any criminal act against humans no matter who they are or where they are. The vast majority of people in the Middle East seek peace and stability, but no one hears their voices or tries to help them. Instead, all help was directed to extremism and terrorism and so most intellects started to believe in conspiracy theory.
Please reconsider your options. I'm addressing peoples not governments.

Mentality of the terrorist

Written by: Ali Taha Alnobani

 A human becomes a terrorist through a long and complicated process of upbringing. He believes that his journey to heaven or paradise passes through killing you or me. The strength of this ideology comes from the closed circle of belief; there is no logical way to reverse or prove the contrary. One day he was an ordinary child with open mind to all thoughts and ideas, but everything around takes him to this critical area.
Sometimes governments consciously or unconsciously pay millions of dollars to grow this mentality; simply they don't take attention to the long term impact of educational curriculum. Teachers are also involved in the same process, they reproduce there complex thoughts which gives us more radicalized image.
How many generations we need to change this reality? Even if we stop all effects: curriculum, teachers, religious associations, society, media, etc.
Can anybody in this world say that he is far away from terrorism risk? I think nobody. For that, we should collaborate to save children's humanness and build their ability to live and love.
Through long period of time large number of people thought that we can bring children to this world to bloom like flowers, but today we know that they can be large bombs that threaten our lives.

Terrorism everywhere

All of us feel sorry and sad to see terrorism grow everywhere. Are feelings enough to change? I think we have to think out of tank to find how to face the huge risk that tries to destroy civilization. We have to discuss all ideas which were covered with silence and ignorance a long time ago.
Large number of individuals all over the world somehow see a side of the truth, especially those who live in the middle east, but, still afraid of narrow minded, and intolerant people. Nobody tries to engage them in solving the most dangerous phenomenon in the human history, all of us will be great losers if we stay in this situation.
All fingers point to the Middle East, but who tried to understand the real things that interact in minds of millions of people there. We must end terrorism from its roots, but that needs to know the roots!
Can we begin searching and discussing this large issue?
And the most important:
Can we engage the silent people in finding the solution to save human civilization?

A world without conscience

Should we try to be rich in any way?
I spent two days in searching on the internet to buy anti slippers tips for my crutches online, there were many choices: some merchants sell bad product with low price, others sell bad products with high price, and surely there are ones who sell high quality products with high price.
Imagine that you are using crutches to walk and should pay 100$ every month for crutches tips. No body Know the importance of crutches tips - or anti slippers- except people with disability- , every day they expose to real danger of falling down on smooth floor, stairs, or street. 
Merchants of our respected world exploit this fact, some of them made bad crutches tips with low price or high price, and others made good crutches tips with high price. Do they know the meaning of their behavior? I found high quality ones, but it were very expensive, and when I dare to buy expensive ones, the surprise appeared: no shipping to Jordan.
Before about a month I visited many warehouses for medical supplies in the capital Amman: they sell very bad kind of these tips, I fall down many times when I used such products, they told me that they won't import high quality tips because it is unprofitable trade, then they advise me to buy online.
Finally I send messages to many suppliers, but they did not reply, merchants are the same all over the world.
I visited more than 100 supplier site, and found a world without conscience.

Fork, Knife and Pen

Short story
 Written by: Ali Taha Alnobani

© 2015 by THE BIRD(
The open buffet at the five stars hotel has delicious types of food: more than twenty kinds of salad, followed by various types of foreign food, the name of each is written in English on a small card in front of it, and then you pass by a long table of fruits and sweets. I chose my meal and sat on one of the tables
According to the Protocol, I always smile to every person if my eyes meet his eyes, whether he is a colleague in the Conference or one of the restaurant workers who were walking around wearing  the hotel uniform. I began eating: soup in the beginning, then salad… I do not know why I remembered that child who sells cheap kind of pens near the traffic light, which lies between the Raouche and Hamra, the bite stopped in my mouth; I felt that I need  something to push it in my throat.
There is no doubt that the child dreams of returning to his brothers carrying  food, Maybe it's sandwiches, or bread and tea, and perhaps he will pay house rent and have food from here or there.
The weather was extremely hot, and the sun's rays were like molten lead because of the intense humidity, and the child jumps on his mangled shoes from a car window to another offering  pens.
Then, what do people write with pens?
Some people write a business deal where they sell or buy the dreams of thousands of children, some people write poems to beautify the ugliness of this world, and some do not read, write, or even think.
I pushed the salad to my throat.  Then my  battle with a steak with  a knife and a fork started , it had a neutral taste: Not salty nor light, not sweet nor bitter, just like our world in which children age while selling pens at traffic lights, and at the same time they pay from their life the tax of what is written with pens.
