All ships pass, but don't stay

Don't forget the sad face which entered in the cloud when happiness left forever
Can you come back and tell me why?
I'm very sad today until the end of this nightmare
That face was true such as those multi function things in our way
Use it to play
Use it to work
Use it to kill
And use it to stay alone inside the cloud
I'm so sad
My spirit became like a futile game in a far island
No children to play
No horizon
No way
All ships pass, but don't stay
I am sad

Drive out evil from our world!

Why to bring children to this world?
Every time I understand another idea about life, I feel strong pain in my mind and heart: why did I bring my sons to this selfish world? Everything these days leads to war and madness.
There are two kinds of human in this world: the first wants to live, and the second wants to collect everything in his pocket, regardless what happened to the others: famine, poverty, misery, and the large number of curses that fly over the world. Where does all this evil come from?
Those who are staying silent are more negative, they want to keep silly profits for themselves, and let the world go to hell. Can't we raise our voices for peace and life? Silence will strengthen devils, enemies of life, and cruelty.
I think, every one of us should raise his voice for our children future, because this world is not the devil's home, it is our mysterious song for love and goodness.
Like your lovely child who plays with his toy, there is another one cries painfully in another place in this world, and like you have a patient in the hospital receives care, there are another one dies in the streets.
 So drive out evil from our world with our loud voice. Don’t stay silent!

Anti-terrorism, loud thinking

Even if we correct formal education, the problem of terrorism won't be solved. Majority of terrorists receive their Basic education in another stronger way which is related to informal education. They choose everything: the teacher, the environment, the tools, and the final results like: going to Paradise (according to their ideology).
I think traditional school isn't the most successful method to face terrorism. NGOs should take a real role in this difficult task, but how we can reassure that NGOs won't reproduce the same ideas in another shape? We need an in depth programs aware of the impact of all details: leaders of the programs, in depth analysis of their backgrounds, short and long term monitoring and evaluation, and the design of activities.
If we talk about tolerance and the other acceptance, we should have a live and real examples, like famous people who support our vision to have indirect prove for our idea which must base on logic and humanity.
If we talk about justice and equal opportunities, we should discuss all perspectives before going to take a position. Sometimes, someone who you think that he is trifle will surprise you with difficult questions, because life is complex and needs multi vision and various look.
Once, when I was talking about resiliency for children and youth, an experienced person told me that evil ideas sometimes produce resilient people more than good ideas. Since that day I search about the methodology to produce ordinary person who respect himself and the others and do his best to serve co-existence and life future.
Can we think together, how to save our dreams of peace world for generations to come?

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.
