^^^^^ Every army has a problem with sick-in-the-heads. l myself saw US troops do sicker stuff inside the USA borders. The difference between armies and commanders is their attitude about such things. Same with gov'ts. lt is their attitude and response that is the difference between normal and criminal ---continue with your carrier or be hanged.

Shooting the Palestinian youngster is not much different than this: https://www.the-berlin-wall.com/videos/peter-fechter-dies-trying-to-escape-542/ 

And a Palestinian's life is not much different than this   WARNING: BAD  HIJABs : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZKie_34cpJI 

Back in the 80s, some lsraeIis who just got out of their army and l were working together. They told a couple of similar stories to the video posted by @IbnSina .

One thing they said was that (lsraeIi) people were wondering if they were not becoming "like the Nazis themselves" (exact quote-ed) being lead by the Zionists who controlled even their water and electricity. Which makes me wonder how they can conveniently-forget this:  https://ru-clip.net/video/c-6CchE1NqI/hd-stock-footage-nazi-death-mills-crimes-against-humanity.html   WARNING: Un-Sanitized Camp Footage.

Everybody should look forward to the Last Day.

Who was there to comfort Ruqayya (as), aged only three years old, when she was crying rampantly, witnessing the bloodied, abused head of her father (as)?

Children are blessings, they are meant to be showered with mercy and compassion, but what was shown to her except cruelty and viciousness?

Allahu akbar! They treated the entire progeny of the Rasul (s) like dirty animals!
Asalamu alayka ya Ruqayya bint al-Husayn (as)

Anyone watching the Brett Kavanaugh hearings right now?

 

Whether or not the allegations are true, he doesn't seem at all to have the kind of character you'd expect a Supreme Court nominee to carry. His testimony's littered with angry comments, candid anecdotes, and casual profanity you'd expect him to avoid, given the context.

Interesting things I have noticed about the Russian language so far:

Their word for sausage is the same as the word we use in farsi.

Their word for fig is the same as the word we use in farsi.

Interesting things I noticed about the place in Russia I am in right now:

Theres palm trees here with dates in them, theres even banana trees growing here.

http://theconversation.com/children-with-autism-shouldnt-be-forced-to-socialise-44585

I went for ziyarat, and again my group had problems with me that I don't socialize. I had my mother with me and people in the group really didn't have to deal with me a lot. Plus my mother did socialize with people, but still on the last day, I had to hear complaints from group leader. I am sick and tired of people's complaints. I read this article about autistic people and I agree with this. Why do we expect autistic people to change themselves? Not talking is not such a big crime, I think people who complain about it are narcissists and they really need something to criticize anyway. I mean, I think other people talk too much, it annoys me and sometimes even gives me headache, but do I tell them to shut up? Whenever I go to the shrines with another person, some kind of miscommunication happens, I get separated from other people and other people then look for me everywhere and then they get upset. For this reason, I don't want to go with other people, I can just go by myself, but other people insist on going with me. Anyway, this time my mother was the one looking for me, not other people from the group and they still ended up having problems with me. 

I read another article about how some autistic people don't want to "cure" their autism and I am one of them. Really! I don't understand why people make such a big deal out of small things. Why don't they just develop a little bit of tolerance for autistic people? We had to share a room with 2 more people at the hotel, and one of them was a young girl, she had AC on at very low temperature, it made both me and my mother sick, but we had to tolerate it and be patient about it. So why cannot other people show little bit of tolerance?

Autism is not a disability really. It is a difference in mental processing and sensitivity. Humanity is richer as a species with more diversity. We need people who see the world differently.

But unfortunately, dealing with people who don't understand is just one of those natural consequences of being different. 

I don't have autism - at least not diagnosed - but two of my kids do. I certainly wouldn't want to "cure" either of them. I would teach them to be their best selves in the world, same as my two neurotypical children.

I'd like you to especially watch this video, for Mahdi (aj) and Hussain's (as) sake:

[Read after having watched the video]

I now ask you, 'O reader of this message, what do you think the Imam (aj) is feeling at this moment?
Only God knows how much grief he is going through right now, as we know in Ziyarat al-Nahiya he says to his grandfather Husayn (as) that he was not able to fight with him because time separated them from each other, had it not, he would have taken the sharp swords for his grandfather Husayn (used his body as a shield), and that in the meantime he will cry blood for him.

He could have cried a pool of blood already this month, and what are we doing about it? Adding onto it? Sinning?

He is the man charged with the grand task of finally avenging the deaths and oppression dealt to all the Prophets (pbut) and the Ahlulbayt (as), he will finally take revenge for them, as we know his army's (313) slogan will be "O avenger of Husayn!".

How much pain do you think he's in now, knowing he has to keep on waiting and is unable to finally make justice to the grieving Ahlulbayt (as) (until he reappears), and that you may be the reason for that? Don't you want relief for your Imam? Then why do you sin?

When Imam Ali's (as) rights were taken, he described his feeling, in sermon 3 of Nahjul balagha: "So I adopted patience although there was [Edited Out]ing in the eye and suffocation (of mortification) in the throat." Al-Mahdi isn't exactly feeling great right now, either...

How do you feel knowing that al-Mahdi (aj) had to see all his beloved ones passing away one by one, and now more recently al-Baqir al-Sadr, Shaykh Nimr, and today, seeing shaykh Zakzaky being oppressed in Nigeria, and not receiving permission to finally relieve himself and avenge all the oppression dealt to the Ahlulbayt (as) and their shi'a?

When we say "اللهم عجل لوليك الفرج ", do you know what it means? No, it doesn't exactly mean "O Allah hasten the reappearance"... it means "O Allah, hasten for the relief for your wali (al-Mahdi)"
So how do you feel now that you may be the reason al-Mahdi cannot attain relief yet?

Just thought of this verse...

27. "O' children of Adam! Let not Satan seduce you as he expelled your parents from the Garden, stripping them both of their clothing that he might expose unto them their shameful parts. Surely he sees you, he and his Tribe, from where you do not see them. We have made the Satans the friends of those who do not believe."

It is strange that other tribes are extremely prideful in being satanic toys. They always claim to do whatever they do for the benefit of the greater good for everyone. Yet being extremely deadly & merciless, they don't understand that our souls are not for sale. Not for this world.

Does anyone get this surrealism and deconstructionalism stuff? I’m taking a class where we read Arabic literature through them and I’m always like what the heck lol

That deconstructionalism is the insistence that everything reduces to arbitrary constructs and that there is no "Truth".

Surrealism came after Cubism (of parts) and exaggerates features disproportionately.  Like: "the SMALL nose she had"

You'll just have to endure this pseudo-intellectuality to pass your class. l had to suffer through revisionism.

@eloquence 

Here is an English word, for your encouragement, that has lsIamic characteristics:

rectitude 1] Moral Uprightness; 2] Sound lnteIIectual Judgment

Hmmmm, . . . lntellectual Judgment has a direct relationship with Moral Uprightness.

You can find Quranic dictates at Ayat 2:164, a warning at Ayat 3:118, and a summary declaration at Ayat 8:22.

 

So you can think of that anti-lntellectual garbage as if it is your grocery list: Memorize for Now and then the Scrap-Waste  gets Thrown-Away later.

Unless you like to collect garbage :D

I just witnessed the growth of legend: some children at my daughter's school bus stop were discussing the terrorist attacks of 9/11/2001, long before any of them were born. I heard a boy say "Oh yeah, I remember. That's when those planes flew into the buildings and millions of people were killed "

I suppose ultimately it might be in the millions, but I'm pretty sure that's not what he meant.

On another matter, opinions please:

My son agreed to mow the lawn for an agreed upon payment. It's been two days of fine lawn mowing weather and he had no homework on at least one of the two days. At what point should I assume he has broken his agreement and mow the lawn myself? 

The grass is nearly knee high in some spots. Nobody else in my family seems bothered it. The neighbors have mowed their lawn twice since the last time ours was done.

Reminds me of 2nd grade when the teacher had to settle an argument. The other boy was insisting that there were airplanes in the American Civil War.
