Progress is never a conciliation with the Norms.. Understanding is never an isolation from Cross-Borders.. and Love is never a Loneliness nor Greed..!

Just Like His Daddies..!!

Just like his daddies! Sir Elton John and David Furnish's son Zachary took centre stage at their Oscars party

Once; I had shared the appreciation for all talented people; who form our public culture and life modeling.. Then I discovered that many of them are member of the GLB community (Gay, Lesbian and Bisexual).. Many of them are shamelessly well know to public media.. Many of them have enthusiastic audiences and fans; whom through they contribute in shaping the human civilization.. Despite how controversial the GLBT-Rights matter is; I maintain my simple religious beliefs about it.. Meanwhile, I have my own intellectual vision and verdict on it..
The true talent is a divine gift; which should (at least) compliment to both "normal behavior and code of decency.." Despite the luxurious and meaningless philosophies, within hearts and minds of the peoples’ majority; clear comprehension is commonly agreed on both fundamentals and substances of life.. Controversies on GLBT definitions and rights are intellectual fantasies supported by beneficiary groups; who none of them is a GLBT affiliate..!!

As a Muslim, there is a great contradiction between my righteous beliefs and those celebrities..!!

Understanding the debates on psychology, adoption, and civil rights, the question which no one dares to answer: How many “normal & stable” persons seek spouses from their own gender..?
Oprah Winfrey popularized the tabloid talk show genre which, according to a Yale study, allowed gays to become mainstream

On Wikipedia, as usual, there is a comperhensive list of GLB personalities..
This is a partial list of confirmed famous people who were or are gay, lesbian or bisexual. Famous people who are simply rumored to be gay, lesbian or bisexual, are not listed. The historical concept and definition of sexual orientation varies and has changed greatly over time; for example the word "gay" wasn't used to describe sexual orientation until the mid 20th century. A number of different classification schemes have been used to describe sexual orientation since the mid-19th century, and scholars have often defined the term "sexual orientation" in divergent ways. Indeed, several studies have found that much of the research about sexual orientation has failed to define the term at all, making it difficult to reconcile the results of different studies. However, most definitions include a psychological component (such as the direction of an individual's erotic desire) and/or a behavioural component (which focuses on the sex of the individual's sexual partner/s). Some prefer to simply follow an individual's self-definition or identity. See homosexuality and bisexuality for criteria that have traditionally denoted lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) people.
The high prevalence of people from the West on this list may be due to societal attitudes toward homosexuality. The Pew Research Center's 2003 Global Attitudes Survey found that "[p]eople in Africa and the Middle East strongly object to societal acceptance of homosexuality. But there is far greater tolerance for homosexuality in major Latin American countries such as Mexico, Argentina, Bolivia and Brazil. Opinion in Europe is split between West and East. Majorities in every Western European nation surveyed say homosexuality should be accepted by society, while most Russians, Poles and Ukrainians disagree. Americans are divided–a narrow majority (51 percent) believes homosexuality should be accepted, while 42 percent disagree."

Also, an interesting Wiki list on Gay Icons..
A gay icon is a public figure (historical or current) who is embraced by many within lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) communities. Dykon, a portmanteau of the words "dyke" and "icon", has recently entered common lexicon to describe figures particularly iconic to lesbians.
Qualities of a gay icon often include glamour, flamboyance, strength through adversity, and androgyny in presentation. Such icons can be of any sexual orientation or gender; they can be out or not. Although most gay icons have given their support to LGBT social movements, some have expressed opposition – advocating against a perceived "homosexual agenda".
Historical icons are typically elevated to such status because their sexual orientation remains a topic of great debate among historians. Modern gay icons, who are predominantly female entertainers, commonly garner a large following within LGBT communities over the course of their careers. The majority of gay icons fall into one of two categories: the tragic, sometimes martyred figure or the prominent pop culture idol.

Affordable Housing..


All humans are born with the same basic senses.. While sharing same ability to cry for their basic needs, they are unable to assess the intellectual propositions without gift, education or training.. This is how folkloric expressions had been developed into structural interpretations, tools and presentations.. The “Folklore” was our spontaneous celebration of life; whereas less balanced or harmonic colors, dimensions or masses; expresses the intellectual naivety of vision, measure or weight.. Once the relative senses grow, we exercise sophistication that is called “Fine Arts”.. Between Folklore and Fine Arts lay the gap of civilization, which is not limited to race, place or time.. A gap of perception and expression; which would be found in New York City or Mogadishu City.. The gap between preparedness for the time or not.. Between understanding or not.. Between eligibility or not..!!

Progressive epistemia is the right interpretation of such intellectual dilemma.. Unless each individual and generation questions the appropriation of his epistemic inheritance; life would freeze at the prehistoric state.. Authorities indirectly aim to encourage people to change concepts, trends and habits in order to urbanize practices and requirements.. Urbanization is the sole evidence of successful public management.. This is why education, healthcare and housing are always the front arenas for concerns and critiques as well.. When politicians were unable to confirm equality and satisfaction in these three fields, both Capitalism and Communism were defined..!!


Endowments, donations and allocations for public schools were known worldwide.. All leaders, at all levels had understood the necessity to prepare “Smart” children to grow in order to sustain the public management.. On parallel, this intellectual supply was always necessary for the business community to excel, prosper and expand.. Similarly; at the Sind Valley, a Visionary Monarch had introduced the first public sewage system.. At Heliopolis, a Tyrant Pharaoh had built the first public clinic.. At Rome, a Military Mayor had organized the first public health service.. Attempts to provide the population with dwellings were always costly and controversial.. Eyes were always slightly open to the negative consequences of crowd and poor housing conditions.. NGOs were gathered to help, but the gap between demand and supply were ever growing fast..

Basically, all involved parties were typically trapped in three main pitfalls; in addressing the problem of affordable housing..


Firstly; All humans are physically and psychologically equal, despite poverty, malnutrition or illiteracy.. They all share the appreciation of a good, comfortable and clean house and a habitat.. When they compromise for a less quality; it is a “Force Majeure” not a choice..!

Secondly; Every person wants her/his own comfortable space, despite how small or insignificant it is.. It is part of the combined personal and mental identity.. Provoking such a need by space limits or unavailability would engrave disagreeable characteristics; which would shake any healthy performance..!

Thirdly; Freedom to express, distinguish or expand a person’s attributes; is the backbone of our life practices and experiences.. When people are forced to be architecturally and visually unified in their publically provided houses; behavior disorder increases with lots of vulgarity, violence and crimes..

Among these three parameters (Appropriation, Individualism and Distinction) lay the measures for successful strategies and implementations.. Such a dream; which is shared by all social and urban managers; can’t be aligned with any cost-based solutions..

Certainly; cost management is inevitable for investment and operation modeling, yet; sacrificing all associated social and cultural aggregates is not reasonably acceptable.. While engineers are entrusted to develop new cheaper construction methods, architects are required to create “humane” models of housing.. While urban planners should innovatively calculate the patterns, city mangers should overwrite the planning processes..

For Standard family of four; 60:70 m2 of two bedrooms, a living space, a kitchen and a bathroom are the least acceptable scope for an appropriate, comfortable and distinct house..!

Just one little girl at a time..!



Despite atrocities and injustices: mercy is embedded within our genes..
It is just one little girl at a time.. ♥!

He is Chief Master Sergeant John Gebhardt in the USAF serving in Afghanistan (As high as you can go in enlisted ranks (E-9) )

John Gebhardt's wife, Mindy, said that this little girl's entire family was executed. The insurgents intended to execute the little girl also, and shot her in the head... But they failed to kill her.

She was cared for in John 's hospital and is healing up, but continues to cry and moan. The nurses said John is the only one who seems to calm her down, so John has spent the last four nights holding her while they both slept in that chair. The girl is coming along with her healing. He is a real Star of the war, and represents what the members of our services are trying to do. Go for it!! You'll never see things like this in the news, the public needs to see pictures like this and needs to realize that we're making a difference. Even if it is just one little girl at a time. ♥!

The little Maryam used to sleep on my chest too..!!




Intellectual Enslavement..


Thousands of Afghans attacked an American base where Korans were burned accidentally..
The books have inadvertently thrown into the trash, and Afghans clustered around the base, fired in the air and threw stones; commander of NATO forces in the country apologized and ordered an investigation..
Demonstrators show copies of the Quran allegedly set alight by U.S. soldiers.

If the "Books" are burnt; We can print many many more.. But if minds are enslaved, No one; whatsoever, can enlighten..!!

Once in a home-move; I had astonishingly observed how Afghanistan and Pakistani porters dealt with Quran and other "Characteristically-Decorated" Islamic books; with lots of respect and care.. Their behavior had unconsciously lots of controversial idolatries; which are clearly forbidden in Islam.. Yet, the illiterate and poor guys do not know..

What happens in Afghanistan and Pakistan is a deliberate "Intellectual Enslavement" under the "Banners" of Islam.. This is only in favor of corrupt and outdated Politicians, Military and Bureaucrats.. Ignorant and half-literate Imams are comprehensively included too..!!

Is there any difference from the darkness of the Medieval Times..?

Should Muslims stand against.. or they all caught the virus..??

Many of the circulated copies of Quarn among non-Arabic-speakers, with translated meanings and elaborations in their annotations and footnotes; are not reviewed, accredited, or approved by any notable authority; but local ones.. Many Imams and Teachers in the thousands of Maddrasah’s (Religious Schools) are using outdated curriculums, bizarre syllabuses and freak teaching methods.. The widespread hysterical violence and ignorant reactions are the obvious outcomes of inadequate upbringing systems and educational strategies; if any..!!

Many speaks on the Muslim Uprising, represented by the cheerful gestures of closing code, satellite stations and organized events.. Regretfully, none of those reflects Islamic family code, Islamic urge on hierarchal epistemism or Islamic public accountability.. I strongly doubt that who endorses the said uprising, understands Islam the way it should..!

Decades ago, a common joke was well known in Egypt.. (A Hajj (pilgrim) would be known by his wrongdoings..!!) This folkloric perception reflects how pilgrimage is a license to be trustworthy by the naïve commons, despite what actually a person does..!

Between Illiterature and Poverty lay all evils..!


The Cultural Selection..


Progressive Change in life, or the evolution of cultural trends and habits, only occur when maturity endorse intellectual realization of inheritances that need to change..

Despite how many would revolt and reject the particular customs of their own parents and guardians; they unconsciously tend to literally repeat all of them; once they are parents themselves..

This is how the cultural characteristics survive; and the negative trends as well..!

Notably, women are more attached to their cultural heritage than men.. Their maintenance and celebration of social activities include most of the details that well preserved across decades and centuries.. The gender contract had entrusted them to safeguard the fine characteristics, while men were entrusted to safeguard the land and properties..

This is quite clear in rural communities, while urbanism cast its effect on common behavior in towns and cities.. However, the term urbanism has great controversial landscape..!!

Maturity is not about the biological capacity to breed, but the cultural psychology to sustain the goodness and modify the defects..

Without such smart governance or epistemic auditability; we would still live in caves, wear fur, and diet raw meat..!!

Source of Law


Each nation has a “Source of Law”; which for Muslims is respectively: Allah swt, Quran and Sunnah, followed by Rulings of Early Elite-Followers and “Fiqh” exercises by scholars..

Apparently, Muslims spiral in great unspoken arrogant chaos..!!

They can’t understand Allah swt (which is logically acceptable), nor Quran (as they’re linguistically declining), nor Sunnah (as been caught in Shariah’ fruitless debates), nor EEFs (as history became a passion not an epistemia), nor Fiqh (as how Eljinaed had put it 500 years ago)..

Let’s go back to dwell in caves, cloth by fur, and diet on raw flesh..!!

Occupy the Arabic Media..


Journalism.. a coalition among accidental 3Ps:
Politicians, Professionals and Plotters..

The Media Professionals are mostly lost between Politicians and Plotters..
A life Cycle between "Water-Gate" and "News of the World"..!!

To deliver a message; Mass Media "Has To" monopolize ears, eyes and “sexual” senses of the audiences..
Twisting logic and rationales by repetitions, distractions and stimulations..
Despite the few decent ones within; They all follow the "Code"..!!

The only "Industry" with “Affiliates”; who claim to know consciousnessly better, think epistemically better, feel insightfulnessly better and also abused aggressively more..!!

When the lab contains Illiteracy, Poverty, Arrogance and Moneys
The Product is filthy, smelly and awful..!!

Someone should call to “Occupy the Arabic Media”..!


Aesthetics..

Neal's Yard Salad Bar, Covent Garden, London

If it was my call;
All pupils should have compulsory curriculums of
Aesthetics, Statistics, History, Geography and Law..
These are the foundations of an “illiterate-integrative-productive” Person in the current “intelligence” era..
Kyoto Obubu Tea Plantation - Japan

Is there any potential that one day our streets will look alike..??
Just a very few of them..

Maybe only one street in each city, township and village..!!

Are we different spices; or they are..?
Haas and Hahn, the working title of artistic duo Jeroen Koolhaas and Dre Urhahn, have adorned several concrete landscapes in Brazil with their colorful paintings, and now they’ve taken on the transformation of a blighted favela neighborhood. They hope to continue the artwork over the entire area, Santa Marta, one of Brazil’s notorious favelas (slums).

Beauty is always a sensible facts, not only the sentiment of the eyes..
It is not that costly to change the way we build our streets or paint our facades..
I guess "Graffiti" was a rebellious search for Aesthetics in our ugly urbanism..
Taste of beauty is not all genetic, but mostly transmittal..
As per Latin America and Subcontinent; not poverty nor illiteracy hinder beautifying our existence..
It is our true sense of Life and Love..
No wonder that most of the world are just living dead..!

He came from the “Far-North” of Sudan, yet his melodies had reached “Allover” Sudan..
Despite how proudly spoke the native language of his own, he had mastered the “All-Sudan” slang..
A Nubian King as how had been described, and a Sudanese “Noble” who satisfactorily delivered his share..
May Allah swt shower him with mercy and forgiveness..

MoonWatching..


Ironically, Muslims have lots of dependence on MoonWatch to organize rituals, calendars and life.. Yet, they are the least carrying to manage this fatal practice..


I was not browsing.. I’m a member..!!
Sincerely, I urge every Muslim with “Intellectual Curiosity” to join..!
Not only a free fun practice, but also a duty to bring an end (by a collective actions) to the anual "ridiuclous" debates..

Dancing Leadership..

AlBashir is warming up to dance..!!

Tyrants are not blamed to be, nor Dictators, nor Corrupt Senior Officials..
They are Leaders; despite the noisy objections.. !!
Why?

Leadership is not chosen characteristics, nor taught ones; but the collection of personal skills, mysterious appeals (X-Factor) and brand attitudes; which make the audience unconsciously follow, obey and/or accept.. Leadership programs teach how to manage or capitalize on such qualities if a person has.. Not to turn a fellow one into a boss..!!

This is how the commons would adopt the political wrongdoings, would bear the national abuse, and shamelessly would practice schizophrenic behaviors.. This is how many would vote for the abusing leader covertly, shamelessly, or aggressively.. They are not voting for such an unagreeable leader, but voting for their own dominating weakness, ruling confusion and mastering ignorance..


Therefore, it is a waste of time to question how honest, capable or efficient a leaders is.. But how confused, incapable or hypocrite the people are..
This is how change would accumulate, compile and ignite a revolution..

Omar AlBashir is a military commander, who was undoubtedly trained to be a leader.. In military; no one is promoted unless passes minimum qualifications; otherwise the military function will defuse.. Using dances, lies, opponents, allies, sacrifices, taboos, etc., is part of the typical leadership tools; which he had successfully (so far) proved capacity to handle.. This analysis would lead to undermine the creditability of all political opponents, not his own..!!

No one can blame him to fight for the glorious chair of presidency, but blame who allowed him to reach, occupy and abuse this chair.. The entire Sudanese intelligentsia (including the blogger himself) are blamed for being irrational, ignorant, hesitant and incapable to work together (without selfishness and ego) to replace his regime with a better one.. No excuses are acceptable..!!

However, history tells that all successful democracies and urbanism had been brought forward by Machiavelli-style dictators..!!


Why Bush was not criticized for the famous African Dance..??

Addiction..


Historically, addiction has been defined as physical and/or psychological dependence on psychoactive substances (for example alcohol, tobacco, heroin, caffeine and other drugs) which cross the blood-brain barrier once ingested, temporarily altering the chemical milieu of the brain. Broadly, addiction is defined as the continued use of a mood altering addictive substance or behaviors despite adverse consequences. Some defining characteristics of addiction include impaired control over the substance/behavior, preoccupation with the substance/behavior, continued use despite consequences, and denial.


Addiction can also be viewed as a continued involvement with a substance or activity despite the negative consequences associated with it. Pleasure, enjoyment or relief from actual or perceived ailments would have originally been sought; however, over a period of time involvement with the substance or activity is needed to feel normal. Some psychology professionals and many laypeople now mean 'addiction' to include abnormal psychological dependency on such things as gambling, video games, food, sex, pornography, computers, internet, work, exercise, adrenaline, idolizing, watching TV or certain types of non-pornographic videos, spiritual obsession, self-injury and shopping.

The American Society of Addiction Medicine begins their definition of addiction by describing it as "a primary, chronic disease of brain reward, motivation, memory and related circuitry."


Well, my words would sound fanatic, but I’m not..!


Despite how I agree on the role of greed and criminals to extend the addiction, I disagree on social obligations towards those miserable persons.. Despite how I agree on their lost-self-control, I'm not ready to allocate my hardly-gained taxation to bail their insanity.. Despite I agree on how many of them are smart, talented or gifted, I only accept such a definition on who kept awake and productive till their last moment of life, rather than who build their wealth from our false happiness and quick moments of joy..

Those "Addicted-Celebraties" sale the virtual reality to people who are addicted to dreams or others seek temporary escape.. Most of those ill-fated are musicians, players or artists, none of them was a scientist, an entrepreneur or a politician.. Fine arts were always tools to elevate our practice of epistemic life, not to load it with fractured philosophies..

This would tell where the lock is..
It is their chosen path of illusion, where Mankind speechlessly believes controlling the universe.. Look around how many tells you to control your own destiny, while none tells you why you had been created for..
Simply, who promotes the addictions; promotes the materialism too..
Simply they know how to stimulate your senses to be out of them..!!
When a person creates his own referrals.. When he empowers the body apart from the soul.. Look around on this chosen materialistic-world, which most parents feel pity for their kids, where poverty is not seriously fought..
We, the Mankind, chose to be disgracefully ignorant, arrogant and intolerant, despite the glowing swift victories and media showbiz.. Once we created our own manuals, we are governed by preceptions and heading to chaotic disasters..
We simply don’t learn..

Therefore, when darkness fills the sights, and confusion spiral the brains; we are unable to see by hearts..
This was the prescription for all dead civilizations..
The true demise between life and death..
Pity..!

Muslims biggest enemy..






Egyptian GID: Facts and Fictions



Cairo's Undercover Strongman
Meet Murad Muwafi, the most important man in Egypt you’ve never heard of
BY MAGDY SAMAAN

FEBRUARY 3, 2012

CAIRO --
When Hosni Mubarak fell from power in February 2011, many elements of his regime remained in place -- at least at first. In the year since then, the Egyptian army, the police, and the business elite have struggled to cope with the tide of revolutionary change washing over the Arab world’s most populous country.
Not one of these institutions has made it through the process entirely intact. The deeply unpopular national police force has seen its authority relentlessly eroded by protestors and the press. Mubarak-era crony capitalists have landed in jail, their old deals under fire from rivals or the courts. And the military, which has ruled the country in the guise of the Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF), has become the focus of popular anger as it struggles to maintain its control. Now the Muslim Brotherhood, which has ridden recent electoral victories to a dominant position in the new parliament, is set to advance its own agenda, thus adding a fresh element of unpredictability to the struggle for power.
Yet one pillar of the old regime has survived the turmoil with its authority intact -- if not expanded. It is the General Intelligence Directorate (GID), the country’s most powerful intelligence agency. As the elderly generals of the SCAF have only fanned the flames of discontent with their clumsy maneuverings in recent months, the GID, which reigns supreme among Egypt’s competing security services, has gradually emerged as something like the brain trust of the leadership. Unlike the ruling generals, its officers act outside of the limelight, their workings largely obscure to the media and the public. Its role has enabled the GID (commonly known in Arabic as the Mukhabarat) to capitalize on the uncertainty that plagues other reigning institutions. As a result, the man who runs it -- an inscrutable 61-year-old by the name of Murad Muwafi -- is now poised to assume a key role in the next phase of high-level intrigue.


The article is a mix of facts and fictions; alike 007 series.. Not only repeats the short fiction of AlAswani on the breakfast deal between MB & SCAF; but also define deformed identity for GID.. Lots of scrutiny is required, to avoid further confusion on the severely-confusing Egypt..
GID is a 1952 child; which was structured to safeguard both presidential regime and establishment.. GID in its fierce fights with Mossad and its aliens; had developed complex mechanism to sustain its mandate and operations against any breach.. Sadat was almost successful to restructure it, but 1973 had brought back the GID’s patriotic substances; which had slowly unnoticed-grown..
Mubarak use of Suleiman was not by choice, but by default.. Muwafi (or others) are ruled by a code of conduction that sustains the Egyptian pillars of national security, despite any political turmoil or shake.. This is what get GID strength and draw its role in past, present and future politics of Egypt..

Sudan, six months after separation..


Be aware of Maya Khan.. and Antichrist..!!

I doubt it was unintentional entry of the program..

When western democracies were challenged by measures of prosperity and equality; Youngsters’ Movements were very enthusiastic and furious on negotiating with the formal establishments on measures and road mapping.. Notably, many across Europe had replaced the eagerness for tangible change into intangible one on the shores of Goa or within the blue clouds.. On parallel, who had kept standing, had introduced the NGO and Civic movements worldwide.. However, the outcomes and its wide correlative implications, had forced De Gaulle and Nixon to resign.. This had interpreted the new grown public culture..

Bottom line: There is a compulsory route for political maturity, which our people are experiencing now..

There is no numbers to assess or to weight, but loud echo from traditional and new media..

In a transforming world; from Information into intelligence, what is the basis of any change campaigns..? In a country with poor rates of HDI, how far voices of change would reach..? Shall we, as always used to; satisfy with Central Khartoum as expression and focus, or reach out the Marginal People..? Which social models we are after or looking for..? Which Sudan we are talking about, or representing..?

There is no Fast-Track cultural change, nor a Fast maturity.. We have long walk to go, not hesitant but awaked-aware..!!
