Tweet, tweet….

So have you ever followed a Tweet on the ongoing revolution in Lybia and Gaddafi ?

Or would you rather watch a life blog ?

Or would you like to know whats going on in Bahrain ?

Or maybe Algeria ? Or a facebook page on the protests in  Iran ?

This is how we are connected…

See the New Earth taking form…All is One, there is no time and everything happens simultaneously.

Al Jazeera has a good overview: Region in Turmoil

About Michaela

I am a wanderer and a wonderer, like you are. I love our journey and to walk in the company of friends – to learn, experience, share, laugh, cry and above all I simply love this marvelous, magical, mysterious life. I have no plan (cannot believe I am saying this) and my only intention is to be truthful to myself and others.

    Even at al-Jazeera they are so used to it that they forgot to mention the mother of the middle east Turmoil… Palestine.

    In the end all these uprisings are a result of many years of western policy in the middle east. All starting in the time of the Ottoman empire… The beginning of industrialization and the need for oil.

    I have been monitoring twitter from the start… But now I am trying to let go of it because it is having a very disturbing affect on my own well-being.

    Maybe Ibrahim (Abraham) should have stayed in Mesopotamia. 🙂

    Raoef it seems to me that introducing Palestine into the mix would be like adding fog to the landscape,

    the same with adding Foreign Policy and oil….but to a lesser extent. It equals confusion…and diversion from the underlying issue.

    These uprisings are all about democracy and individual freedoms – to live a life of political freedom, individual choice and voice. The people yearning to have the security of open and just societies and self governance. These are fundamental Islamic principles, although it seems that many Muslims are not that aware of it.

    The Palestinian situation, although excruciatingly painful to some of us, is similar but different. It is different in that the tyranny is of one nation over another. And, in my opinion, “War Is Not The Answer”.

    On the bright side, democratic reforms coming into the middle east, particularly in Egypt will certainly effect the balance of political ‘attitude’ in a significant way.

    Out from under the yoke of despots –benevolent or not!
    May it be good.

    Yes… Maybe you are right and we should keep it simple.

    It teaches us that the seed for the current events may have been planted decades ago…Lawrence of Arabia, the WW I, the Suez Canal…industrialization…the Age of Enlightenment ..indeed, it all may have started with Abraham, and we now get a sense of what it means that everything happens simultaneously.

    lol I didn’t see your further posts. As if!

    A seed is just a seed. You will know by the fruit.

    Actually the seeds, in the Islamic community, go back even further than the Ottoman Empire which like all collective human endeavors had its faults, nevertheless historically, it was the largest, most peaceful, benevolent (within its borders) of any ‘Empire’. The people lived good lives and generally the ‘people’ of what is now Europe found that their personal lives improved under Ottoman rule.

    Nevertheless, as the Arabs say, “The fish rots from its head.”

    This seed of dynastic rule could very well have been planted by Mu awwiya, who was a contemporary of the Prophet Muhammad, sas. The Prophet left many indications for securing a just political/social life and none of them included ‘inherited right to rule’.

    It was Mu awwiya, I believe who was the first of the Muslim community to lean toward dynasty. Not only did he want kingship for himself but he wanted his son to inherit it.

    I am reminded of Colin Powell’s (Bush appointee) response to a reporter who asked: “What do you think Mubarak wants.” Reply. “He wants what they all want over there, for his son to inherit the throne.” Seems true enough.

    So…..we watch it unfold….and hope for the best

    To be a political leader is not an easy job. I am grateful to and for the leaders that we have right now. It is not all in their hands….the bad is hidden in the good and the good is hidden in the bad. That’s how I see it.

    Loving that we can have this conversation. I don’t know why.

    xo and peace, Fatima
