Aku rasa lepas belajar law ni makin senang nak mengafal. Lol
Kalau dlu waktu sekolah susah betul nak mengafal doa atau surah. Mungkin dlu kurg motivasi kot, sbb skrg Alhamdulillah satu hari dah boleh terus hafal, tp pendek ja lah, bukan yg panjang2. Terkenang pula dlu waktu ustaz n ustazah suruh belajar solat. Even my parents pun suruh juga, tp aku selalu tangguh. Punyalah liat nak menghafal bacaan2 dlm solat, susah kononnya. Sebulan dua bulan tak habis2 lg menghafal. Ish3x.. kelakar pula rasanya. Ayat Kursi pun berminggu2 nak menghafal. Aku ckp ni bukan rsa diri ni hebat sgt skrg, tp aku happy sbb byk improvement after looking back in my past. Masih byk sgt yg perlu diperbaiki contohnya sebutan kita ni. Kdg2 huruf ain tapi bunyi huruf alif. Kena hati2 juga dgn sebutan sbb takut maksud tertukar.

Lagi satu sejak aku habis study law rmbt dah kurg gugur. Rasanya half of my hair gugur sepanjang pengajian aku. Nipis dah rambut aku skrg, I used to have double the amount I have now. Lol. My dad study law muda lg dah dpt uban, aku pula hampir botak. Nasib baik gene rambut lebat. Hehe.. september ni buat CLP gugur balik la ni kot. Harap x la sbb aku sdg pakai serum herba ni, harap dpt membantu. Sbnrnya masih ada ggur tp dah kurang, kalau dlu sehari gugur 200-300 helai, skrg maybe 50 helai shj. Still sakit hati la tgk rambut d lantai, geram. Dari dlu smpai skrg tak henti pungut rambut d lantai. Penat tp puas hati kalau tgk lantai licin berkilat. Klau boleh aku nak beli vaccum robot tu, senang sikit. Kalau ada sensor rambut lg best, dia kutip rambut shj sbb bilik aku takde kotor sgt. Haha

Haihh macam2 perangai betul. Lol

My mom likes bright colours like yellow, red, orange and my elder sister likes pastel colours, so sweet looking.
While I’m really attracted to dark colours but I sometimes do like bright-attention-grabbing colours and pastel, it depends on my mood. But since I mainly choose dark colours for my clothes, I look older than my age. Ergghh! I’m not even 25 but a lot of people thought I’m around that age (working, married #rude)
I always try to choose more vibrant and pastel colours but I always end up choosing the darker shades. And even I did buy the bright colours, I don’t wear it often enough. Lol

Border fences make unequal neighbors.
By Philip Cohen, PhD
There is one similarity between the Israel/Gaza crisis and the U.S. unaccompanied child immigrant crisis: National borders enforcing social inequality. When unequal populations are separated, the disparity creates social pressure at the border. The stronger the pressure, the greater the military force needed to maintain the separation.
To get a conservative estimate of the pressure at the Israel/Gaza border, I compared some numbers for Israel versus Gaza and the West Bank combined, from the World Bank (here’s a recent rundown of living conditions in Gaza specifically). I call that conservative because things are worse in Gaza than in the West Bank.
Then, just as demographic wishful thinking, I calculated what the single-state solution would look like on the day you opened the borders between Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza. I added country percentiles showing how each state ranks on the world scale (click to enlarge).

Israel’s per capita income is 6.2-times greater, its life expectancy is 6 years longer, its fertility rate is a quarter lower, and its age structure is reversed. Together, the Palestinian territories have a little more than half the Israeli population (living on less than 30% of the land). That means that combining them all into one country would move both populations’ averages a lot. For example, the new country would be substantially poorer (29% poorer) and younger than Israel, while increasing the national income of Palestinians by 444%. Israelis would fall from the 17th percentile worldwide in income, and the Palestinians would rise from the 69th, to meet at the 25th percentile.
Clearly, the separation keeps poor people away from rich people. Whether it increases or decreases conflict is a matter of debate.
Meanwhile
Meanwhile, the USA has its own enforced exclusion of poor people.  The current crisis at the southern border of the USA mostly involves children from Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador. They don’t actually share a border with the USA, of course, but their region does, and crossing into Mexico seems pretty easy, so it’s the same idea.
To make a parallel comparison to Israel and the West Bank/Gaza, I just used Guatemala, which is larger by population than Honduras and El Salvador combined, and also closest to the USA. The economic gap between the USA and Guatemala is even larger than the Israeli/Palestinian gap. However, because the USA is 21-times larger than Guatemala by population, we could easily absorb the entire Guatemalan population without much damaging our national averages. Per capita income in the USA, for example, would fall only 4%, while rising more than 7-times for Guatemala (click to enlarge):

This simplistic analysis yields a straightforward hypothesis: violence and military force at national borders rises as the income disparity across the border increases. Maybe someone has already tested that.
The demographic solution is obvious: open the borders, release the pressure, and devote resources to improving quality of life and social harmony instead of enforcing inequality. You’re welcome!

Palestine ⇢

thaqafa:

You can’t just watch the news for a few days, read a couple headlines here and there, and think that you know what is really going on, why it’s happening, and what should be done about it. You cannot take one incident and examine it completely out of context and then use that as an argument.

MSNBC Contributor Slams Network For Pro-Israel Coverage: ‘We Are Ridiculous!’
July 21 2014

An MSNBC contributor used her appearance on the cable news channel Monday to sharply criticize its coverage of the Israel-Hamas conflict.


During an interview on “Ronan Farrow Daily,” Palestinian journalist Rula Jebreal unloaded on Western media outlets, including MSNBC, arguing that influence from pro-Israel forces makes the news coverage more favorable to the likes of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
"Because of AIPAC, and because of the money behind it, and because of Sheldon Adelson, and because of all of us in the media. We are ridiculous. We are disgustingly biased when it comes to this issue," Jebreal said.
"Look at how many airtime Netanyahu and his folks have on air on a daily basis. Andrea Mitchell and others," she continued, referring to the MSNBC stalwart whose show airs right before Farrow’s afternoon program. "I never see one Palestinian being interviewed on theses same issues."
When Farrow pushed back gently and pointed out that Palestinian guests have been interviewed, Jebreal continued her criticism.
"Maybe 30 seconds! And then you have 25 minutes for Bibi Netanyahu, and then half an hour for Naftali Bennett and many others," Jebreal said.
Jebreal wasn’t done. She went on to call out NBC News for the recent kerfuffle surrounding Ayman Mohyeldin, the foreign correspondent who was abruptly pulled off the network’s coverage of the Israel-Hamas conflict last week.
Mohyeldin was eventually sent back to Gaza this weekend after his removal from the region — which NBC said was due to security concerns — sparked a fierce public backlash.
Jebreal, it turns out, is among the critics who believes Mohyeldin was taken off the story for political reasons.
"Listen, the Ayman Mohyeldin story, let’s talk about this. We are home and we can discuss this. Ayman Mohyeldin is covering the Palestinian side and we get upset," she said. "It’s too pro-Palestinian. We don’t like it. We push him back and thanks for social media that brought him in."
The criticism clearly made Farrow uncomfortable, and he could only respond to Jebreal’s points with a vague counter.
"Point taken, but doesn’t it reveal equally our thinking that we now have Ayman Mohyeldin on air and I think there’s been very fair and balanced coverage?" he said.
"Yes, thanks to social media, and thanks for the pushback from the public opinion," Jebreal responded. "And I’m not saying that everybody is like this, but it’s one-tenth is given to the Palestinian voice and 99 percent of the Israelis voice. And that’s why the public opinion is pro-Israeli, which is the opposite in the rest of the world."

You realize hamas has been telling their people to die for their weapons, and ATTEMPTING to blow up israel (and failing I might add), while israel is protecting their citizens 24/7 and using weapons to protect their citizens (using the iron dome) AND GAZA! Israel invaded gaza after giving the citizens of gaza and advised them to evacuate before invading. Israel invaded to destroy their weapons, not to kill anyone. ISRAEL WILL WIN ❤️

hailfrypan:

By the way, as I was writing that, 5 ROCKETS WERE FIRED AT ISRAEL. I can assure you all were intercepted by the iron dome and no one got hurt in israel in those attacks. Just so you know! :) am yisrael chai!

You have no idea how angry i was when I recieved this message, I was close to just throw insults at you but that is not the way to make you listen. You have clearly been misinformed, so let me explain why you are wrong instead. Grab a chair and let me educate you.

"You realize hamas has been telling their people to die for their weapons, and ATTEMPTING to blow up israel"

Yes, I am aware of the suicide bombers, but this is an invalid argument. Hamas never forced citizens to die for them, everyone who went into those missions were Hamas volunteers, who out of desperation tried to defend their land. The last suicide bomber from Hamas exploded January 18th 2005, and I also need to add that Israel had a lot of suicide bombers too. Between 1993 and 2006 Palestinians killed 643 people while the Israelis killed 3638 people (among them 148 children under the age of 15) in the period 2000-2006. x (note: this is a Danish source, but you can still see the numbers are right). However, this is completely irrelevant right now. 

There was a rumor about Hamas using citizens as human shields, but it’s confirmed to be false. The video showed is from Syria, not to mention MORE THAN FIVE MONTHS OLD. x

As you said, Today, the only thing Palestine has is fireworks, which barely does any damage at all. The death count of Israel is one person while 274 Palestinians have died in the last 10 days. There are more than 1500 Palestinians wounded, and only 2 or 3 Israelis. Over 900 homes destroyed, while only one building in Israel is. 

image

This is the aftermath of one of Hamas’s rockets compared to the damage of the Israeli bombs. Don’t make it sound like Israel is the victim. 

"while israel is protecting their citizens 24/7 and using weapons to protect their citizens (using the iron dome) AND GAZA! Israel invaded gaza after giving the citizens of gaza and advised them to evacuate before invading.

Israel don’t have a tough time protecting their citizens, because THERE IS NOTHING TO PROTECT THEM FROM.

These are actual pictures of Israeli people in their bomb shelters. THEY ARE USING #BOMBSHELTERSELFIES AND COMPLAINING ABOUT THEIR HAIR WHILE THOUSANDS ARE WOUNDED IN PALESTINE. 

image

THIS IS WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE IN GAZA

image

 

Palestine has NO ARMY OR WEAPONS, THEY CAN NOT DEFEND THEMSELVES. Israel warns the citizens 56 seconds before a bomb BY USING A SMALLER WARNING BOMB ON THE ROOF OF THE HOUSE. Besides, THE CITIZENS HAVE NOWHERE TO GO.

Israel controls all the movement of the citizens and its borders. They obviously can’t cross the border to Israel, and no one is allowed to cross the border to Egypt either, and as you can see on the map below they can’t go by sea either. 

image

Israel invaded to destroy their weapons, not to kill anyone.”

That is not true, at all.

  • Israel fired 5 missiles at a hospital in Gaza and had threatened to do it again. x
  • Blew up a mosque, a school and a charity building.
  • A 15-year old Palestinian boy was forced to drink gasoline and SET ON FIRE.
  • Hundreds of Palestinians are dead and thousands are wounded.

Not to mention:

  • Israel has broken over 65 UN resolutions. 
  • Their government is paying college students to pro-Israel propaganda on social media. x
  • Three Israeli boys were kidnapped and it’s confirmed Hamas has nothing to do with it, though the citizens of Israel were told the opposite.

Bonus fact: According to major polls, the majority of Israelis and Palestinians agree that a two-state solution is the best way to end the conflict. x

And last of all, there’s nothing for Israel to win. This is not a war, this is genocide. If you had read any of the posts (with legit sources) floating around on this website I wouldn’t have to explain this. As Kathlyn Gadd said; “Blaming Hamas for firing rockets at Israel is like blaming a woman for punching her rapist.”
