Pay close attention to this, Karrada is the heart of Baghdad. It’s Sydney’s George Street, New York’s Time Square, Paris’ Champs Elysees, and it goes on and on.
An explosion at this time of year is similar to a festive holiday, whereby working hours are done, and people are out findings reasons to relax and celebrate, therefore; an event as such is a pure tragedy.
Who was killed? Someone like you and I out celebrating with their friends, catching up over a smoke and playing domino. It could have perhaps been a family out having a meal, or someone walking past just to pass their summer’s night.
Mothers have now lost their children, and some father’s their sons and daughters, and children their parents and it’s never ending.
It’s unjust, do pray.
What I know of the city has no relation to today, and there is no better way to say this than the way he describes this …
One of the greatest metaphors in music, every written, ever sung. To understand the meaning of this song, one must appreciate the language to begin with, but also must have lived, seen, and known this ‘Woman’ at her peak. Who she is today is not who she was. You see broken tears, sadness, chaos and destruction.
I knew her when she stood ground, shook a nation, she was the centre of attention, powerful and so damn beautiful. She holds memories, experiences, and till this day she draws me to the most grand connection that’s I’ve ever had.
كثر الحديث عن التي اهواها ، كثر الحديث من التي اهواها
There’s more talk about the one that I want
ما عمرها ؟ ما اسمها ؟ ماسرها ؟ ماشكلها ؟ بيضاء ام سمراء ؟؟ عيناك احلى انتي ام عيناها ؟
What’s her age? What’s her name? What’s secret? What does she look like ? White or tanned? Eyes are prettier you pretty eyes.
جل الذي اخشاه ان تتاثري ، فتماسكي وتهاياي وتحضري Something Something, Hold on and get ready
فلغيره النسوان فلغيره النسوان فلغيره النسوان فعل الخنجر
Oh women are jealous, they are jealous, their jealousy feels like the stabbing of a sword
هي اجمل من كل جميله احلى منك واحلى مني ، هي ارشق من كل رشيقه ، هي اقرب من قلبي عني
She’s prettier than the prettiest girl, better looking than you and I, she’s slimmer than any body, she’s closer than my heart is to me
يااجمل من شعر كريم او كاظم في اروع لحن
She’s prettier than Kareem’s hair, or Kathem in his best tunes
قالوا انك تسهر معها ؟طبعا طبعا
They said you spend your nights with her? Of course, of course
قالوا انك تسكن معها ؟طبعا طبعا
They said you live with her? Of course, of course
عيناها بيتي وسريري ووساده راسي اضلعها ، تمحو كل هموم حياتي لو مس جبينياصبعها
Her eyes are my home, my bed, and my pillow. She wipes away my life worries when her fingers touch my head
ضميني يااحلى امراه لوصمتت قلبي يسمعها ضميني يااحلى امراه لوصمتت قلبي يسمعه
Protect me you prettiest lady, even when she’s quiet my heart hears her
Speaks: God has never created anyone like you in this entire world..
“FACES OF EVIL – shows the faces of the cruellest and most infamous dictators of our time, from Mao to Hitler to Mugabe. Hans Weishäupl took photographs of over 350 people in each dictator’s country and pieced particular parts of them together to create a new and alarmingly lively look for each of them. All seem familiar and yet somehow impenetrable due to the many faces that hide behind each portrait – just as in reality.“
I’ve taken the liberty to choose THREE.
Adolf Hitler Who: An idealist, dreamer, racist, dictator, over achiever and a public speaker, all for nothing. What he believed: “Great movements are popular movements. They are volcanic eruptions of human passions and emotions, stirred into the activity by ruthless Goodness of distress or by the torch of the spoken word cast into the midst of the people” What he taught: “Hate is more lasting than dislike”
Saddam Hussain Who: The most methodical Arab leader of the 20th Century. What he believed: “Im a firm, but just leader” What he taught: “Politics is when you say you are going to do one thing while intending to do another. Then you do neither what you said, nor what you intended”
Who: One of the most murderous dictators in the history. What he believed: “Death solves all problems, no man, no problems” What he taught: “One death is a tragedy, one million is a statistic”
In my opinion, it’s all the same s*** but a different smell, however; if you had to rank the wrong doings of these so called ‘educated men’ who would you throw under the bus first?
