madly in love with Iraq

11.8.06

To Love again

I have a love crisis since I came back from my unforgettable holiday.

I’ve been fighting to fall in love again with my flat, my work, my friends and my whole life here.

The first weekend; I pulled down the curtains, cleaned the windows, scrubbed the floors and washed every single garment I have. I just wanted for things to look nice and new in my eyes once more….

The second weekend, I invited my close Iraqi friends over for a meal, but in reality I was after their support. I wanted them to appreciate my food and then agree to what I have to say!

I cooked for the whole day while trying to ignore the TV echoing in the background.
I couldn’t bring myself to switch it off, jumping back and forth every time I hear something different in the news.
The result of cooking in a kitchen which looked and felt like a war zone; was soggy rice and an over-cooked curry. Only the fish survived my temper.

I think living in stable countries turns you to a placid person and a dreamer;
One of my friends was trying to push us to weigh up the Middle East crisis differently and don’t let our anger control us, a peaceful solution she pressed. The other was steering the conversation away; bringing up her never ending problems with her husband and blaming it on the situation back home. Another wanted to shut us all up by stating “Don’t waste your time trying to analyse what happened and what will happen next; Saddam is responsible of all our tragedies; Iraq, Lebanon you name it, he has been for the last 40 years or so”.

“Don’t you dare switch on the news, I will leave the minute you do so” the last one to arrive shouted. “I had enough at home, I am here to relax and chat”, and “Please face it we are bad people and God is punishing us for what we are”.
“And how come you are suddenly supporting the turbans?” “I hope it is not the Shia blood in you affecting your brains?”

Those rebellious friends of mine have really changed and have decided on a “We don’t want to know” slogan.

What is frightening; is how submissive we are all becoming. We are starting to believe that there must be something seriously wrong with us. Let alone contributing to the new terms; radical Islam, moderate Islam, Islam phobia, axis of terror and today’s Islam fascists …
On the other hand, you meet others who are so angry and in constant rage; no reason no space for any kind of conversation.

The Media is turning us against each other to distract us from the real culprit, and at the same time accelerating hate and disgust from others toward us.

Can’t you see that we have been slaughtered for the last 50years; first we were put in mass graves and now we are elegantly put in boxes? Is this the difference between dictatorships and democracies?

Can’t you see that we are the only ones who have to abide by UN resolutions or otherwise what is dictated by the US while others do what they want?

Can’t you see that even when we are bombed and maimed; it turns out to be our fault?

Above all can’t you see that the conspiracy theory we are accused of believing in is utterly the only reality?

I can confidently tell you that the 1815 corpses delivered to Baghdad morgue last month made the Israelis day, along with the daily murders in Lebanon.

Wake up, our lives and destinies revolve around the happiness and safety of Israel. And those aliens Israelis who don’t speak our language and don’t share our culture have more right to exist in our own land than us.

No, Israel is not a status quo we have to accept. Israel is a cancer we have to uproot.

After all if we defend our land, we are terrorists; if we got killed it is collateral damage.

Don’t tell me we’d rather have moderate people, there isn’t such thing. Where does moderation come from? You are moderate when you live in moderate surroundings.

I was really charged and ready to face the biggest love crisis of all, the one I’ve been avoiding since I came back…. My Jewish second mother.

I did not want her to say Hizballah is great and Israelis are criminals. I just wanted her to acknowledge our dead. Or at least say both are wrong and we have to do something.

She did not; she blamed it all on Hizballah and just recited whatever their media is broadcasting. I was worse than her and said it all…

I can overcome a loss of a friend; I can survive a failed love affair, but a mother…

  • I don't know if I can say that I feel your pain. It is probably more than I can imagine. I had recently lost the one true friend I had over my views of the war in Lebanon. He is a staunch Zionist who thinks Israel can do no wrong, and he felt my criticism of Israel made me a self-hating Jew. Such is the ways of the ignorant. For you the loss is greater, and I can only comprehend a sliver of it. Feel comfort in the fact that you have readers who are here for you.

    Your statement that when you fight you are labled terrorist and when you are killed you are classified collateral damage sums up it all. People wonder why Palestinians and Lebanese would ever consider sacrificing their lives to strike out at the enemy. To the Westerner the suicide bomber is a mystery. What they do not understand is how their lives been devauled. They have been used and discarded by their own people like pawns in a chess game. Their homes are built up only to be destroyed again, their friends and relatives murdered or kidnaped, and their lives reduced to a worthless existence. The Westerner can not even imagine such a life, and that is why they can not understand the suicide bomber.

    We can only hope that this cycle ends and that for once the Palestinians and Lebanese can build a life and a identity that does not include violence and destruction. For that to hapen the West and the Arab Nations have to start treating them like the humans that they are and not pawns to be used in political agendas.

  • Heretical Jew, I never knew you felt this way. and Madly in Love, ...I echo Heretical's comments, though I am perhaps further removed from feeling your pain and anguish.

    Just remember that the outside world is not defined by one or even a few people's attitudes. The people you meet everyday and the image they judge you by, hurts, but we have to keep throwing off that social training, that blind nationalistic social training is what is telling us to discriminate.

    That blind socialization with our own kind, you are struggling to find some social community that is sane, it seems from your criticism ...it is possible those people do exist. They have a healthy view of the rights of Iran and Iraq and Israel and Palestine and Lebanon.

    Your friends are struggling with the same ghosts as you, in their own way...it isn't so different for this Jewish woman...This woman, she has offered the only goodness, that she or any of us have in exchange to be loved, perhaps. Please don't reject her. She is flawed just like we all are.

    Its easy for me to say. I say these thing for myself too. I can't say I have any superior wisdom or experience that the ordinary person can't find....What have I found? I am sorry I can't say any more. I can't tell you "it" is a magic charm that will make all of this world like paradise, Knowledge is only one part of our reality..There are other components..

    So we have to live and mature and refine our souls. I am a fellow traveler like you, like heretical jew, like others. we are all on the same journey. We are all going in the same direction...

  • Hala,

    Firstly, Hamdulla 3al Salama.. it's good to have you back, safe and sound.

    It's clear that the pain you feel is beyond what you described.. whenever we try to put feelings into words, words fail us.. no matter how accurate they may look, we're always short of capturing the precise emotions.. particularly in cases like yours where the trauma forces you to become introverted and transforms you into a sympathetic observer, rather than the dynamic figure, the powerhouse of arguments you were before..

    Sadly, your friend needs to look slightly beyond her distorted religious inclinations and consider herself as a human-being before being a Jew..(i emphasise on the fact that her religious doctrines are distorted - no proper religion approves the mass slaughter of people irrespective of what they believe in)

    I've only just turned 18 but I have absolutely lost hope in any solution to our world's continuing slump..

    enjoy your weekend.. and be well.

    Kind Regards

  • Dear Hala,
    Israel is an unnatural construction and without the money from the US and it's own near mythical victim identity, it cannot survive. No military action is needed.
    When the US needs to repay its Chinese loans taken out for the Iraq war, there will be no money left over for Israel.
    And if peace were to break out, they'd cut the money faster because they could not justify such large sums if Israel was no longer considered to be in danger.

    Meanwhile Israelis do not produce enough Jews for a replacement population. Already they rely heavily on Arab labor for their own lack of popualtion. Soon there will be no more outside Jewish populations to import. Arabs will be the majority. Apartheid-like conditions if dealt with correctly will fall like it did in South Africa (faster, I hope!) And after that, the wall dividing Israel from Palestine will also fall.

    Peace will destroy Israel faster than war.

    Israel and the US were hoping to get Iran and Syria involved in this last bit of murder and slaughter, so they could "justify" attacking Iran's nuclear sites. (didn't Israel bomb the Iraqi nuclear reactors?)

    Whatever complaints or hatreds of Middle Eastern rulers, Syria and Iran showed incredible wisdom by their restraint.

    Israel continues to embarass themselves with their aggression. If they keep overplaying their hand, perhaps we'll be turning the UN forces on them...and pray God, nuclear arms inspections in Israel would follow;)

    Consider falling madly in love with some young man and having lots of children. Raise them in faith and wisdom. Make sure they all finish at least one advance degree, and speak several languages.

    Consider what peace and patience can accomplish. And good lawyers and publicist;)

    Deep breaths and think big picture and long range.

    And consider the power of love, compassion and yes, forgiveness.

    More powerful then bombs.

    If you can't trust me, an anonymous stranger, understandable.

    Trust God.

  • Madly,
    I copied this from a New York Times editorial, a conservative columnist, but the point is, we are all products of our environment. It starts with our mother's physical and psychological condition during pregnancy and advances from there to the family situation, and our community. Culture counts, but it isn't the flavor of the culture, its the conditions that the culture is dealing with at the time, and the learning experiences the culture restricts females to, for example.
    Your friends, you, me, anon. we are all products. We can't change those characteristics easily, and if we aren't even aware they exist operating within us........well, we are plastic only to a certain extent. One of the names of God is Most Merciful, isn't it?

    "Between 1997 and 2002, the U.N. Mission of Kuwait picked up 246 parking violations per diplomat. Diplomats from Egypt, Chad, Sudan, Mozambique, Pakistan, Ethiopia and Syria also committed huge numbers of violations. Meanwhile, not a single parking violation by a Swedish diplomat was recorded. Nor were there any by diplomats from Denmark, Japan, Israel, Norway or Canada.

    The reason there are such wide variations in ticket rates is that human beings are not merely products of economics. The diplomats paid no cost for parking illegally, thanks to diplomatic immunity. But human beings are also shaped by cultural and moral norms. If you’re Swedish and you have a chance to pull up in front of a fire hydrant, you still don’t do it. You’re Swedish. That’s who you are.

    Walter Lippmann got to the crux of the matter in a speech 65 years ago. People don’t become happy by satisfying their desires, he said. They become happy by living within a belief system that restrains and gives coherence to their desires,"

  • Kevin,
    The answer is no. I never said the Middle East will become paradise once Israel is gone.
    But Israel is a major problem, and it is very naive to deny that.
    For normal Arabs Palestine is an occupied land and the daily assaults on its people make us all boil with anger, let alone refugees who have been living in camps in Lebanon and Jordan for decades. For Arab governments Palestine is a card they play to protect their existance. For US&Co it is an excuse to interfer in the area and protect their interests, while having a faithful ally and a business co-operate who acts as arms broker to Africa etc..

    We have social and economical problems that we cannot deny. The injustice in this area and the double standard policy caused a lot of anger and extremism.Some of it is geniune and a lot of it is an excuse to gain more power.
    If Israel is no more many masks will fall and a big weight will be lifted.
    Many think we hate Jews and hang our problems on them. But has anybody thought if Jews love Arabs? Or if they really want to establish good relations with them? We are always to blame and no one wants to hear about how this entity was created and why. they call it the only democracy in the ME! I didn't know that democracy means slaughtering people and violate their land whenever you wish, let alone kidnaping and arresting memebers of an elected government.
    With all its immunition and advanced arms technology, while other surrounding countries are gradually striped of theirs, we feel that we are waiting for a time bomb to explode.

    Zappy,

    I know and I hear and I feel your agony, I wish I have a magic switch; once on it can provide Iraqis with a cool freezing breeze and fill their hearts with love and hope.

    My comment was meant to be a joke not an insult. I appologise if it came across that way.

    Also you are right as usual. Most focus on how the Arabs hate Jews but ignore the rampant anit-Arab prejudice that exists in Israel. How many Israeli officials have been quoted as calling Palestinians animanls?? If there was a real desire for peace in Israel then this month long blood bath would not have occured.

  • Heretical Jew, when I lived in LA I became close friends with this Jewish guy. He was teaching Jr. High math in a mixed neighborhood. Now as of 2006 he has been teaching highschool math for more than 20 years. The school and students he teaches come from all economic levels, and nationalities are mostly Mexican, Korean, Black, some white , Latin American, Chinese. The school is/was a fantastic place of gangs, high school prostitutes, fist fights, drugs, and genius kids working on special university projects, future artists, future writers, dedicated teachers, crazy ambitious parents, 1st generation refugees. Everything that is great and terrible about the USA exists/has existed in miniature in that school. If I were there now I would be teaching with Joel. If I were moving to LA, CA, USA I would recommend Eagle Rock High school. I have met many of the teachers and administators there. He would probably do for me, as much as he would for any member of his family. If I were ever in need I know I could rely on him to help me in whatever way. I would do the same for Joel.
    BUT, I can't discuss at all Arab/Jewish relations. This lovable 210 lb guy, who has dedicated his life to helping kids of all kinds, has this scar in his heart regarding Arab and Israel relations. Iwish I could graft your heart onto him. I don't know what has happened in his past or maybe family's past, I don't know..he won't ever talk to me about it. It makes me very very sad. So when Ihave met someone who is Jewish and has even a reasonable stand..

    The site I really like it, I have read only 2 of the long articles. I would be honored to meet Prof. Finklestein. There is an interview with a famous linguist of my generation who was very active in opposing the Vietnam war, also Jewish, Noam Chomsky, one of my college day heros.

    You don't have to apologize. It was a very good joke. I just forgot to comment, the not so pleasant mood I am in again, nothing else .
    edoriver,
    With all fairness many Jews at least in here are much against what is happening. I know few in person, and I've met a lot in demonstrations.
    What really hurts me is the media and especially the US one which makes you want to smash the TV.
    We have the BBC in here,and many neutral Newspapers, and in general the Brits are more open to the world and more in touch with what is going on which is a relief.

    By Blogger hala_s, at 9:09 am  

  • after what is happening to the palestinians the biggest tragedy to come out of israel is that the arab world was separated from its jewish brothers and sisters. about half of my friends are jewish, i don't know what i would do if i lost them. most of them i find are sympathetic to my point of view if they are not apolitical. the zionist organizations here in north america are very well organized and as such most of them get drilled into their heads from a young age that they have to support israel, along with programs like birthright that give them free trips there.
    the overhwhelming bulk of israeli support in america comes from the christian right however, not jews. unfortunately she does not get near the level of criticism here that she does in europe.

    ...i have already said my feelings on everything else. anonymous 1 has some points there, however, that i really feel should be considered.

    As long as you believe that, the world will continue to place you in the category of terrorist, hatemonger, and fascist. Moderation will be your salvation and, for Muslims, moderation means giving up on the idea of reclaiming "Muslim lands" from Kashmir to Andalus.

    Don't believe me? Fine, live in ignorance, but ask yourself what the world thinks of Jordan, who is at peace with Israel? Do they think them terrorists? No. The examples are laying there in front of you, but you refuse to see them.

  • It so so easy to just fling accusations when you're not making your point because you have no argument, isn't it?... Quoting "Saddamn!" Give me a break dude! What he used as a pretext for his sick agenda is actually taken from the mind and spirit of every Arab...
    Moderate Arab countries? How about complicit in genocide? That's how it translates in the MAINSTREAM Arab world whether you like it or not!
    You are the terrorist to 'terrorize' people into either accepting your views or being labeled one! That is called intimidation and it's what 'terrorism' is all about!
    So Israeli aircrafts massacring of thousands of civilians in Qana is not terrorism?

    Compare your figures? Here's some figures for you:
    http://www.d-n-i.net/lind/lind_8_10_06.htm


    "Casualties In Lebanon
    Here is a snip from Bill Lind dated August 10/06

    One pointer to a shift in the tactical balance is the comparative casualty counts. According to the Associated Press, as of this writing Lebanese dead total at least 642, of whom 558 are civilians, 29 Lebanese soldiers (who, at least officially, are not in the fight) and only 55 Hezbollah fighters. So Israel, with its American-style hi-tech “precision weaponry,” has killed ten times as many innocents as enemies.

    In contrast, of 97 Israeli dead, 61 are soldiers and only 36 civilians, despite the fact that Hezbollah’s rockets are anything but precise (think Congreves). Israel can hit anything it can target, but against a Fourth Generation enemy, it can target very little. The result not only points to a battlefield change of some significance, it also raises the question of who is the real “terrorist.” Terror bombing by aircraft is still terror."

    NOW...talk about terrorism!!

  • Hala, I am sorry to hear about your pain with your mother. Having read your previous posts, however, I cannot express any surprise that you held a deeply-held disagreement with her views, and that you found it impossible to withhold declaring your outlandish support and respect for Hezbollah and Nasrallah.

    To those who wish Israel to disappear from the Middle East: how would you feel if the West offered the Jews a homeland elsewhere? Say, on the Oregon coast, or southwestern Australia, or a sliver of land in Brazil or South Africa?

    But suppose the cost, in return, was the relocation of all Muslims from the West, to the Middle East?

    Would you accept such an offer? As a resident of the West, I know I would. Good fences make good neighbours, as they say, and if not a fence, how about an ocean or an international border?

    if israel were to not exist its citizens would not necessarily have to leave. they would just have to live there as equals and treat arabs like human beings.
    like the anonymous poster said peace will destroy israel, the problem he didn't address is how on earth do we find it.

    You also wrote that if you defend our land we are terrorists........well who defends your land, is it Hizbullah? I think if you defend your land starting an agression (remeber, the two israelis which Hizbullah wanted to exchange for 1000 of palestinians) you should be responsible for consequences of your decision. Your people achieved victory over "agressor" so why do you compain.
    You also write that one is moderate when one is living in moderate surroundings. Moderate surrounding are not coming from heaven, moderate surroundings one is making oneself. And if, trully, violent surroundings make for violent people, you made Israeli violent people by making their surroundings violent.

  • Admittedly, when one merely quotes Saddam (without knowing it?) comparing them to him may be dramatic. But, I never said the fool who wrote about Israel killing thousands in Qana was "dramatic," I said they were lying. Either truth means something or it doesn't, and those who value it should be made aware of those who lie.
    If I said, in a moment of emotion, that during the 1948 War Arab Muslims killed hundreds of thousands of Jewish toddlers, I wouldn't expect people who value truth to listen.

  • Speaking of conspiracy theories...

    One thing that struck me as odd in the days after 9/11 was Bush saying "We will not tolerate conspiracy theories [regarding 9/11]". Sure enough there have been some wacky conspiracy theories surrounding the events of that day. The most far-fetched and patently ridiculous one that I've ever heard goes like this: Nineteen hijackers who claimed to be devout Muslims but yet were so un-Muslim as to be getting drunk all the time, doing cocaine and frequenting strip clubs decided to hijack four airliners and fly them into buildings in the northeastern U.S., the area of the country that is the most thick with fighter bases. After leaving a Koran on a barstool at a strip bar after getting shitfaced drunk on the night before, then writing a suicide note/inspirational letter that sounded like it was written by someone with next to no knowledge of Islam, they went to bed and got up the next morning hung over and carried out their devious plan. Nevermind the fact that of the four "pilots" among them there was not a one that could handle a Cessna or a Piper Cub let alone fly a jumbo jet, and the one assigned the most difficult task of all, Hani Hanjour, was so laughably incompetent that he was the worst fake "pilot" of the bunch. Nevermind the fact that they received very rudimentary flight training at Pensacola Naval Air Station, making them more likely to have been C.I.A. assets than Islamic fundamentalist terrorists. So on to the airports. These "hijackers" somehow managed to board all four airliners with their tickets, yet not even ONE got his name on any of the flight manifests. So they hijack all four airliners and at this time passengers on United 93 start making a bunch of cell phone calls from 35,000 feet in the air to tell people what was going on. Nevermind the fact that cell phones wouldn't work very well above 4,000 feet, and wouldn't work at ALL above 8,000 feet. But the conspiracy theorists won't let that fact get in the way of a good fantasy. That is one of the little things you "aren't supposed to think about". Nevermind that one of the callers called his mom and said his first and last name, more like he was reading from a list than calling his own mom. Anyway, when these airliners each deviated from their flight plan and didn't respond to ground control, NORAD would any other time have followed standard operating procedure (and did NOT have to be told by F.A.A. that there were hijackings because they were watching the same events unfold on their own radar) which means fighter jets would be scrambled from the nearest base where they were available on standby within a few minutes, just like every other time when airliners stray off course. But of course on 9/11 this didn't happen, not even close. Somehow these "hijackers" must have used magical powers to cause NORAD to stand down, as ridiculous as this sounds because total inaction from the most high-tech and professional Air Force in the world would be necessary to carry out their tasks. So on the most important day in its history the Air Force was totally worthless. Then they had to make one of the airliners look like a smaller plane, because unknown to them the Naudet brothers had a videocamera to capture the only known footage of the North Tower crash, and this footage shows something that is not at all like a jumbo jet, but didn't have to bother with the South Tower jet disguising itself because that was the one we were "supposed to see". Anyway, as for the Pentagon they had to have Hani Hanjour fly his airliner like it was a fighter plane, making a high G-force corkscrew turn that no real airliner can do, in making its descent to strike the Pentagon. But these "hijackers" wanted to make sure Rumsfeld survived so they went out of their way to hit the farthest point in the building from where Rumsfeld and the top brass are located. And this worked out rather well for the military personnel in the Pentagon, since the side that was hit was the part that was under renovation at the time with few military personnel present compared to construction workers. Still more fortuitous for the Pentagon, the side that was hit had just before 9/11 been structurally reinforced to prevent a large fire there from spreading elsewhere in the building. Awful nice of them to pick that part to hit, huh? Then the airliner vaporized itself into nothing but tiny unidentifiable pieces no bigger than a fist, unlike the crash of a real airliner when you will be able to see at least some identifiable parts, like crumpled wings, broken tail section etc. Why, Hani Hanjour the terrible pilot flew that airliner so good that even though he hit the Pentagon on the ground floor the engines didn't even drag the ground!! Imagine that!! Though the airliner vaporized itself on impact it only made a tiny 16 foot hole in the building. Amazing. Meanwhile, though the planes hitting the Twin Towers caused fires small enough for the firefighters to be heard on their radios saying "We just need 2 hoses and we can knock this fire down" attesting to the small size of it, somehow they must have used magical powers from beyond the grave to make this morph into a raging inferno capable of making the steel on all forty-seven main support columns (not to mention the over 100 smaller support columns) soften and buckle, then all fail at once. Hmmm. Then still more magic was used to make the building totally defy physics as well as common sense in having the uppermost floors pass through the remainder of the building as quickly, meaning as effortlessly, as falling through air, a feat that without magic could only be done with explosives. Then exactly 30 minutes later the North Tower collapses in precisely the same freefall physics-defying manner. Incredible. Not to mention the fact that both collapsed at a uniform rate too, not slowing down, which also defies physics because as the uppermost floors crash into and through each successive floor beneath them they would shed more and more energy each time, thus slowing itself down. Common sense tells you this is not possible without either the hijackers' magical powers or explosives. To emphasize their telekinetic prowess, later in the day they made a third building, WTC # 7, collapse also at freefall rate though no plane or any major debris hit it. Amazing guys these magical hijackers. But we know it had to be "Muslim hijackers" the conspiracy theorist will tell you because (now don't laugh) one of their passports was "found" a couple days later near Ground Zero, miraculously "surviving" the fire that we were told incinerated planes, passengers and black boxes, and also "survived" the collapse of the building it was in. When common sense tells you if that were true then they should start making buildings and airliners out of heavy paper and plastic so as to be "indestructable" like that magic passport. The hijackers even used their magical powers to bring at least seven of their number back to life, to appear at american embassies outraged at being blamed for 9/11!! BBC reported on that and it is still online. Nevertheless, they also used magical powers to make the american government look like it was covering something up in the aftermath of this, what with the hasty removal of the steel debris and having it driven to ports in trucks with GPS locators on them, to be shipped overseas to China and India to be melted down. When common sense again tells you that this is paradoxical in that if the steel was so unimportant that they didn't bother saving some for analysis but so important as to require GPS locators on the trucks with one driver losing his job because he stopped to get lunch. Hmmmm. Yes, this whole story smacks of the utmost idiocy and fantastical far-fetched lying, but it is amazingly enough what some people believe. Even now, five years later, the provably false fairy tale of the "nineteen hijackers" is heard repeated again and again, and is accepted without question by so many Americans. Which is itself a testament to the innate psychological cowardice of the American sheeple, i mean people, and their abject willingness to believe something, ANYTHING, no matter how ridiculous in order to avoid facing a scary uncomfortable truth. Time to wake up America.
