A Hypothetical Letter From The People Of Gaza To The People Of Israel



18th May 2018

Dear People Of Israel;

It was believed by certain quarters twenty years ago that Gaza had the potential to become the Singapore Of The Middle East.

This is what we want.

We are tired of fighting Hamas' war and are willing to vote them out of office in favor of an administration, the Palestinian Authority for example, whose objectives are peace and economic prosperity, similar to that of Singapore's as was believed possible by certain quarters twenty years ago.

Will you help us achieve such a goal?

Sincerely,

The Long-Suffering People Of Gaza

c.c. The People Of Egypt

Muhammad - Islam's First Caliph & His Legacy


The establishment of an Islamic caliphate as actively sought by Daesh, Boko Haram, the Taliban and Abu Sayaf today is nothing new as its first caliph was Muhammad, a.k.a. the Prophet,  who sanctioned warfare as part of the struggle undertaken by himself and his disciples to propagate Islam by conquest and conversion, a struggle he called jihad, or holy war, which he succeeded in doing in Medina, his capital, and the Arabian peninsula.



The rise and fall, by means of warfare and conquests, of several caliphates followed Muhammad's death in 632 A.D., most notably the Rashidun Caliphate, 632 to 661 A.D,, capital Medina and later Kufa, stretching from Tunisia in the west to Pakistan in the east, followed by the Umayyad Caliphate, 661 to 750 A.D., capital Damascus, stretching from Spain in the west to Iran in the east, followed by the Abbasid Caliphate, 750 to 1258 A.D., capital Baghdad, stretching from Tunisia and Libya in the west to Iran and Kuwait in the east, followed by the Ottoman Caliphate, 1517 to 1924 A.D., capital Constantinople (present-day Istanbul), stretching from Serbia in the west to Iraq in the east.



Interestingly, each caliphate was ruled by a string of successive caliphs, many of whom were assassinated and subsequently replaced.

The Effects Of Cold Weather/Cold Room Temperatures On Stroke Patients


(A Thesis I Never Wrote For A Doctorate I Never Studied For)

Stroke occurs when blood flow to the brain is interrupted by a blood clot or heart stoppage, resulting in brain tissue damage and resultant stroke.

Blood, being thick as opposed to watery, coagulates, or becomes thicker in viscosity when body temperature drops in tandem with room temperature, thus hindering blood flow to the brain which controls everything from reflexes and sensation to motor function and muscle tone.

In normal people, such cold conditions neither restrict nor hinder physical movement. In stroke patients, however, hindered blood flow to a brain consisting of damaged brain tissue only worsens the stroke patient's condition.

And On The Seventh Day He Rested


Not all humans were, as popularly believed, moulded from clay, for at some point, clay deposits had been all but depleted following the creation of billions upon billions of clay-moulded products, whereupon manure found in abundance on grazing grounds was used as a substitute, as evidenced by the shitty people one comes across every now and then. -- Book Of Creation

Categorizing Offspring


There are two types of children as derived from their conduct. One is of noble birth, the other is from the gutter, of which, as in both cases, there are two types. One is the result of upbringing, and hence salvageable, the other is the result of genes, and hence unsalvageable. Blessed are the salvageable ones, for they are not eternally lost. -- Book Of Proverbs

The Dance That Saved The World

The calamitous days of the great flood had long come and gone and the council of elders was in session one day when one of them remarked, "Why is the king looking so troubled? Has someone or something displeased him in some way?"

Indeed, the king, he who sat on the throne in the kingdom above the clouds and who made the heavens and the earth and who knew each star by name, was looking somewhat troubled that day.

"It troubles me greatly to see mankind go down the same path of sin and wickedness as before, the very same path of sin and wickedness that led to the destruction of the earth to cleanse it of all evil and evildoers and start afresh with my servant, Noah, his family and all the birds of the air and creatures of the land he was commanded to preserve in pairs for the same purpose," said the king.

"My covenant with Noah, my faithful servant, and his descendants, that I would not destroy the earth ever again by drowning it in floodwaters is renewed each time the rainbow, a work of art no one in heaven above or on the earth below is able to replicate by the way, appears in the sky," added the king, indicating with a gesture such a work of art that happened to appear in the sky at that very moment.

"Is there a reason why the earth shouldn't be purged of its evil and wicked inhabitants once again, but not by drowning it in floodwaters again as promised to Noah and his descendants for all eternity?" exclaimed the king.

"My Lord," said one of the elders, "would you still destroy the earth and all of mankind, even though every inclination in the hearts of men leans towards evil, as you did once before even if something or someone good or worth preserving were to be found upon it?"

"If something or someone good or worth preserving were to be found upon the earth, however insignificant in the scheme of things or small in  number that something or someone may be, the earth and all of mankind, even though every inclination in the hearts of men leans towards evil, will not be destroyed, against my better judgement, I  might add," said the king.

"My Lord," said another elder," would you consider one of your magnificent creations, the exotic bird of paradise, as being a creature worth preserving such that the earth and all of mankind, even though every inclination in the hearts of men leans towards evil, will not be destroyed?"



"However magnificent the exotic bird of paradise may be, the earth will still be destroyed to cleanse it of its evil and wicked inhabitants whose cups have overflowed and the cries for justice have reached the heavens above from the depths below, however much it would pain me to see the work of my hands, that which I worked so hard to bring to perfection, destroyed," said the king.

"My Lord," said yet another elder," would you consider another of your magnificent creations, one of the most beautiful and rarest of horses, the Akhal-Teke from Turkmenistan, as being worthy of preserving such that the earth and all of mankind, even though every inclination in the hearts of men leans towards evil, will not be destroyed?"


"However beautiful and rare the magnificent Akhal-Teke breed of horses from Turkmenistan may be, the earth will still be destroyed to cleanse it of the wickedness of its inhabitants who have polluted it to overflowing" said the king.

"My Lord," said yet another elder, "would you consider another of your magnificent creations, the most exotic and regal of cats, the Maine Coon, as being worthy of preserving such that the earth and all of mankind, even though every inclination in the hearts of men leans towards evil, will not be destroyed?"


"However exotic and regal the Maine Coon, a special favorite of mine by the way, may be, the earth will still be destroyed to cleanse it of the filth of its evil and wicked inhabitants whose  great numbers have choked it to the point of suffocation" said the king.

Finally, after an eternity of such exchanges between the elders and the king had come to pass, one of the elders held up his hand for attention, saying, "My Lord, would you consider the lowly grebe, a waterfowl insignificant in stature or beauty, yet whose climactic water ballet courtship ritual pas de deux, and grebes mate for life, is so mesmerizing it brings forth tears of joy and wonder and admiration to the eye, as being worthy of preserving such that the earth and all of mankind, even though every inclination in the hearts of men leans towards evil, will not be destroyed?"


"Ah, finally, a creature worthy of preserving such that the earth and all its evil and wicked inhabitants, who deserve to be exterminated in any case, might be spared from being destroyed," said the king. 

"Behold, O otherwise doomed world, the lowly grebe, a waterfowl insignificant in stature or beauty, yet whose climactic water ballet courtship ritual pas de deux, and grebes mate for life, is so mesmerizing it brings forth tears of joy and wonder and admiration to the eye, behold,  thy savior," proclaimed the king.
