لأني لا أستطيع أن أطفئ أحيانا عقليَ
و ما بقي لي من عَقْليَ
But in Arabic they certainly do I feel that I don’t belong anywhere Or maybe i am in a different period of time, that is not mine I wanted to accomplish a lot but my breath is finite I don’t like to ask for help Or ask for help for someone else That might be called self sufficient I love to push and challenge myself To see what i can do, and what can she I published the censored version of my story on my birthday In a day like this day, I came to life With epilepsy in my nervous system Acne and chicken pox Which i was made fun of By some school bullies I launched my first website Then my skull was open I felt afterwards that I was jailed in my own body After thinking that I was a superman My creativity was crushed and my thinking was frozen And i wondered: why is my effort? Then i decided to follow my dream Sickness, loneliness and what will happen next to me? My father was gone, my heart left with him A manic boy stole him from me And Latifa the artist stood by me Not to mention the non stop politics of the planet And my collarbone pressing on my throat I felt leanness in my feelings Boredom and coldness of my brain I might look calm but there are volcanoes deep inside Stealing the sleepiness of my eyes, then it kills it My view of life became much simpler To share with the public My ideas and brainstorms Which are shooting and extinguished like fireworks I decided to write it down and save it in my book So you all see the beauty of my deformed brain I’ve never envied anybody in my life Or a bit… Whoever expressed my feelings poetically on behalf of me Today I am free flying up in space while my tongue is stretching it's wings So go away and play your games with someone else And whoever doesn’t have anything to offer to me and you Don’t stay home doing nothing but criticizing me Just leave me be on my own Today I rise up away of the ashes of yesterday... Forgiving everybody whether they accept it or not I rise up with my body, morals, soul...
And whatever remained of my brain

How biased is the mainstream media?
I am sure none of you ever heard of this teenage girl Ahed Tamimi from An-Nabi Saleh town in the west bank in Palestine who was born on 30 of March 2001, because you know...You will only get to see what mainstream media and social media wants you to see...A supporting message from a known Egyptian celebrity “Sherihan” was deleted by Instagram, she wrote about it on twitter and few days later Instagram brought it back.
“Ahed and her 20-year-old cousin, Nour Tamimi, approached an Israeli captain and a first sergeant at the edge of the family's walled front yard. Ahed yelled at them to leave, then started pushing and kicking the soldiers, who casually fended off the blows. Then she hit both in the face, according to the charges” (The Independent)...Reading this article makes you take the israeli side until you read the short paragraph quoted above you will realize the slapping took place on a Palestinian 1967 land, It’s fascinating how mainstream western media makes invaders looks so innocents while picturing the people who are defending their own stolen land as the tyrants, below you will find more similar articles where they write the story in a way that will probably make you take the wrong side.
And here is a video (courtesy jpost) of what they call IDF (D for defence btw, it should be replaced with A for attackers because the whole thing happened on a Palestinian land hence attack not defence.
1 “The latest shows the 16-year-old punching a heavily-armed Israeli soldier on her family's property last December. Tamimi can be heard yelling, "get out or I'll punch you!" The soldier pushes her away.”, and here CNN reports the incident backwards she punched him then she told him to get out or I’ll punch you, also in the exact article 2 “They point out the Tamimi family is known for its activism, regularly leading Friday demonstrations against Israeli soldiers and the occupation in their village.” they make the family of Ahed sound like the aggressors then the say in their village...That means if you get a stranger in your backyard then just let them do whatever they want. 3 The video on the top of this article shows the way the teenage girl was acting but it doesn’t mention that it actually happened on their backyard which is again on Palestinian 1967 land.
I wrote all of this not to look at it via an eye of a human not to decide the if that land belongs to those or that, but because of what that girl and much other people being through on daily basis and not everybody gets to see it...the reason why they have so much rage.
My personal view about who owns the land is as follows:
Imagine if a monkey takes over your house and kicks you out of it, or he and his family and friends takes over your neighborhood and seige you in your own house, simply because he thinks that he lived on Earth first...Would you still use monkey Emojis on WhatsApp? or would you will turn to Rick in #TheWalkingDead on them?
Not sure what is 1988, 1967, 1949 or 1948 borders?
Well to make this post much shorter, the 48 borders defines UN borders of creating almost equal sizes of a Jewish state next to an Arab state which was suppose to be Palestine, the Jewish state was recognized as Israel while the Arab State was never recognized at the time, the 49 borders was created by negotiations between Israel and neighboring Arab states of what was suppose to be Palestine in what is called Armistice Agreement, giving more land to Israel of the West bank and Gaza, also leaving the remains of Gaza under the control of Egypt and the remains of the west bank under control of Jordan...Well there are people living on that land they call themselves Palestinians, no one asked for their opinions about anything related to the piece of land they call home (or as they call it Palestine)...Ahed’s ancestors are part of those people.
And of course there is the endless story of Jerusalem...

كيف تختار مرشحك؟
- لازم ما تختار المرشح على شكله، الصج اغلبهم اشكالهم افلام بس فلم عن فلم يفرق
- لازم ما تختاره على اساس طائفي او قبلي، لازم يكون هدفه الاول و الاخير مصلحة الكويت و الشعب عموماً
- و اهم شي لازم ما تقول ان كل المرشحين زفت ما راح اتعب نفسي و اطلع اصوت حق احد منهم، لأن زفت عن زفت يفرق...المفروض تنتخب الأقل "زفتنة" لأنك لو ما صوتله الزفت الكبير راح يربح بالأخير!
و اخير شي هذا فيديو شوفوه يمكن تذكرون انتو بالأساس بتصوتون حق منو!

To Alessandro Dell'Acqua with love!
Still feeling bad about it, for some reason which I don't know; my favorite perfume ever was discontinued and it seems I can't move on.
I've been looking for it wherever I go but nothing...
This is probably the last one in Kuwait, I decided to keep it somewhere safe.
Photo: For the first time I go manual on both my Nikon strobes and my camera's mode...I really think I did a bad job, I wanted the background look over exposed in the middle though.
I used two SB-800s on the back with a blue gel filter of the subject and the other one on an umbrella with a green filter gel which was connected to the camera via a cable...I thought those colors looks like the perfume's smell!

Al-Qurain Martyrs Museum [Read]
Al-Qurain Martyrs Museum [Read]
Originally uploaded by radiant guy
I didn't know where they are exactly although I passed by them few times, so I asked who lived in the exact area where the Museum is...
The Museum consists of three houses located in residential area in Kuwait called "Al-Qurain", many Kuwaiti men of the Kuwaiti resistance group of "Messila" where killed by the Iraqi army on 25th of February 1991 (only one day before the liberation of Kuwait on 26th of February 1991), one of the houses was attacked intensively while the other two houses weren't really effected compared to the first house.
Back to my friend who I asked for direction to the Museum, only this week I found out that the father of my friend was killed in that house too, I already knew that he was killed by the Iraqi army but I didn't know that he was one of the men in "the Qurain Houses" I only found out this week...When I was talking to the phone with him, he told me to say Hi for his father then we both laughed...
I was thinking, well it will be very fast just snap some photos of the houses from the outside then go back home, but one of the guards saw me and asked me if I wanted to take photos from the inside I should do it now because they were closing the museum in less than ten minutes and I said OK.
Until today, I never seen "Al-Qurain Martyrs Museum" in real life, so when I got in I saw all the Iron bars surrounding the walls to prevent the house from collapsing, I kept taking photos and then I reached a room where I found photos of the martyrs with all spot lights and some information written about them such as where they actually work, how many children they had, photos of the children, what they were wearing at the time...Etc
While I was walking from room to other, floor to roof I was looking at the walls and reading all the writings on the wall (some of them were written by them), I has flash backs of the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait and I begun to imagine what those guys been through that day and how each one felt linking that to the holes caused by the bullets and tanks on the walls with all the writing and stuff it made me cry.
So I decided to share that story with the whole world because I do want people to know what happened there once upon the time...
Photo and description dedicated to the souls of the courageous resistance men in heaven.

Happy Ramadhan [Year 1428] مبارك عليكم الشهر
Happy Ramadhan [Year 1428] مبارك عليكم الشهر

Muslims are also expected to put more effort into following the teachings of Islam by refraining from sexual intercourse (during fasting), violence, anger, envy, greed, lust, angry and sarcastic retorts, and gossip. People are meant to try to get along with each other better than they normally might. All obscene and irreligious sights and sounds are to be avoided. Purity of both thought and action is important. The fast is an exacting act of deep personal worship in which Muslims seek a raised level of closeness to God. The act of fasting is said to redirect the heart away from worldly activities, its purpose being to cleanse the inner soul and free it from harm.
Fasting during Ramadan is not obligatory for several groups for whom it would be excessively problematic. Children before the onset of puberty are not required to fast, though some do. However, if puberty is delayed, fasting becomes obligatory for males and females after a certain age. According to the Qur'an, if fasting would be dangerous to someone's health, such as a person with an illness or medical condition (this can include the elderly), that person is excused.
The reason Muslims fast is to discipline their body and mind. The absence of food and drink and other pleasures provides a perfect opportunity to concentrate on prayer and worship. Not having the luxuries of life to hand makes it easier to reflect on life and be grateful for what we do have. Muslims use this month to start afresh and give their life a new direction.

Earthquake hits Kuwait!
ما خليت آيه حفظونا اياها بالمدرسة ما قلتها LOL
I had no idea what was going on, I though USA initiated a new war or invaded a new country in the region or something.
Anway later I went down stairs and asked my little brother if he felt it, he replied NO and laughed, then I went to my mother and asked her too, she thought I was kidding.
On the moring while I was driving to work, they were talking about it on the radio and that's when I knew it was an earthquake ~:O
We never have them in Kuwait or at least we can't feel them when they happen but this one was 4.3-magnitude earthquake, I guess that's why I felt it.
