  1. Thoughts 2017

    Her previous Arabic teacher (based in Cairo) also used zoom.us
  2. Thoughts 2017

    No. I just help out when she's stuck. Her French lessons are over Skype and the teacher is in France, she mailed the book as a birthday present. Which was nice of her.
  3. Thoughts 2017

    Well her school was cancelled and she was planning to spend the day under the duvet whatsapping with her friends. So I changed her mind and she sat at her desk reading 'La gloire de mon pere'. Her French teacher has a sense of humour.
  4. Trump's Jerusalem decision

    http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/did-saudi-arabia-just-try-to-give-the-west-bank-to-israel/ My sister-in-law emailed me the link after I told her that I thought that the $100bn that the Saudis are getting from the inmates of the Ritz Carlton is destined for the Palestinians to get them to accept the above type of land offer. Admittedly I had optimistically thought of West Bank bantustans for the Pals, but it seems as if we are looking at them being booted out 100%.
  5. 9/11 mentioned in holy Quran

    I grew up reading the Plain Truth (it was mailed free) and every issue had some sort of reference to America in 'Bible prophecy'. To a pre-teen like me it seemed pretty desperate.

    My daughter seemed to be of the same mind. I quickly made her change it.

    I think you must be out in the sticks. Madressa was cancelled today, but the kids' schools seem to be ok for tomorrow.

    ^ So why is your weight weighing on your conscience?
  9. Trump's Jerusalem decision

    The direction we are moving in is that if the Saudis sell out the Pals with a deal that the Israelis will accept i.e. Palestine is like the bantustans the white south Africans created for the blacks, there will be a lot of pressure on all other Muslim countries to accept the deal. Iran not accepting it, will be presented as a reason for the next Gulf war.

    Same here.
  11. Poor Jokes [OFFICIAL THREAD]

    I must say it is very noble of you to link being overweight to the possibility of someone somewhere in the world having less to eat as a result of your behaviour. The best that most overweight people manage to achieve is being 'weight conscious' and are unable to find space for the moral dimension in their admittedly generous girth.
  12. Innovation and inequality

    An interesting piece in today's Guardian: https://www.theguardian.com/science/2017/dec/10/super-rich-elites-inequality-origins-ancient-farming-mckie-anthropology-society I think this adds to the logic that as man develops the nature and scale of the moral and ethical challenges we face increases (as does our ability to deal with them). In the instance illustrated here, technological development presents the opportunity for an increase in "inequality" in society. I think it is a fair summary to say that there is an Islamic imperative to address this. We face similar challenges today. Disruptive technologies are presenting us with the risks of colossal employment disruption as previously well-paid jobs become redundant. In addition, while technology presents us with the opportunity to do more and more effectively, there is also the chance that for some people the temptation to update Facebook profiles more frequently will prove too much. But blaming the technology, in and of itself is wrong in my opinion. It simply provides us with the basis for testing our ability to cope.
  13. Trump's Jerusalem decision

    The reason why the U.S. does not approve is because Israel tells them not to. Turning to Israeli designs. When the Israel project started the Zionists geographic claims were very modest. Anything more would have meant loss of international support. Unsurprisingly, the Israelis now claim that their territorial claims have been 'forced' to become larger and larger because of the violent reactions of the Arabs. This follows the same pattern as the British, who only ever wanted to have a peaceful trade mission in India, but because of the barbaric locals they were forced to take over the entire sub-continent. Some form of control over the entire middle east seems to be the goal for the first half of this century and the only barrier at the moment is Iran.
  14. Here's some interesting information from Amnesty International, you may not be aware of: http://blog.amnestyusa.org/middle-east/with-whom-are-many-u-s-police-departments-training-with-a-chronic-human-rights-violator-israel/
  15. Jerusalem is the Capital of Palestine

    Let's face it, the people who control Jerusalem are those with the bigger guns. That's always been the case and it's been the case more often than instances when control has been based on moral or religious legitimacy. The Pals have lost. They lost a very long time ago. Their loss of land and rights has been more gradual than it otherwise would have been for the convenience of the imperial powers. They are now about to be sold down the river by the Saudis.
