Three years ago: A “normal morning” turns to horror in Gaza

Mohammed Suliman  24 December 2011 The memory of Israel’s 22 days of bombing in Gaza evokes sadness, anger, pain and inexplicable pride. It was a few minutes past eleven. I woke up “early” to start preparing for my school exams that were due to start in a couple of weeks. It was a lovely morning, warm and sunny. The December sunlight filtered through the curtained windows and so beautifully decorated the carpeted floor. Everything was completely normal, except that the sky seemed clearer than usual with the absence of the Israeli unmanned drones that would fly and buzz in the sky above. No abnormal … Continue reading Three years ago: A “normal morning” turns to horror in Gaza

How 100,000 Britons have chosen to become Muslim… and average convert is 27-year-old white woman

5th January 2011 About 5,200 people in UK adopted faith last year alone The number of Muslim converts in Britain has passed 100,000, fuelled by a surge in young white women adopting the Islamic faith.

Broederschap Syrië ontkent claim aanslagen

DAMASCUS – De soennitische Moslim Broederschap van Syrië heeft zaterdag berichten ontkend dat ze verantwoordelijk is voor bloedige zelfmoordaanslagen vrijdag in de hoofdstad Damascus.

Christmas in Gaza

This Christmas marks the third anniversary of the 2008-2009 Israeli war on the Gaza Strip; a winter in which 19-year-old Ramy El Jelda saw his home bombed just two days after Christmas. He returned to the site a couple of days later to find his Christmas decorations scattered across the road. “The baubles and bells were on the floor. The tree had been blown out of the house and was in the street. We cried. That is how we celebrated Christmas in 2008.” Today the small number of Christmas trees that grace Gaza are primarily plastic and limited to Christian … Continue reading Christmas in Gaza
