Islamophobia

And does it affect one’s health?

The term “Islamophobia” is defined as “an unfounded hostility towards Islam and Muslims”, yet what is called the religion of Islam demands of its followers that they enslave or kill every non Muslim. Therefore Islamophobia is an instinctive response to survive.

There is another quote “as we think, so we become.” This means that whatever we think and whatever we believe will have some consequences. For instance, the person who thinks that they are unworthy is unlikely to become successful in life. Yet the person who believes that they are ‘right’ can be successful regardless of the cost to people around them.

Humanity today is at crisis point. In most countries there is a

So what about Israel?

An ongoing Middle Eastern dilemma

The old Testament of the Bible provides a very tenuous and uncertain history about the origins of Judaism. It seems more likely to me that there may have been a tribe or a group of people migrated out of India some 3000 or 4000 years ago, and like other groups migrating from India, they forgot the Dharma and picked up other beliefs that eventually led to the compilation of the Torah.

While there is debate about the legitimacy of title to the land known today as Israel, according to the biblical narrative, there is no doubt that they (Jews) have over different periods of time occupied a portion of the broader region known as Palestine.

A Changing Pakistan

Enroute to oblivion

Not so long ago, Pakistan was part of India and if we step back deeper into history, before the rise of Islam, the entire region was strongly influenced by Sanatana Dharma and the teachings of Vedanta.

The Pakistan of today was created by the British by partitioning India and forming what was then East Pakistan and West Pakistan – which became Bangladesh. The newly formed Pakistan included a considerable portion of the Sikh state of Punjab and the coastal state of Baluchistan.

Many of the new Pakistani’s had fled India, but the idea of Islam to take over the world incited the Pakistani’s to declare wars against India back in 1947, 1965 and 1971, moves that

A Middle Eastern Perspective

A great drying

When attempting to piece together the fragments of history, historians we need to take into account the ice ages and climatic changes. So what has been going on?

It is said that the drying out of the Sahara desert began some 20 or 30,000 years ago. In fact much of the region was an inland sea which over time dried out giving way to vast freshwater lakes and rivers. It seems probable that much of the region spreading from North Africa to central and southern Asia was well watered during the ice age and it seems likely that there were many great tracts of forest and wetlands across the region.

It is generally thought that about 5000

The Hijab and Politics

An inconvenient truth within Islam

The hijab is essentially a head scarf. Here an Iranian man wears one as part of a movement seeking rights for their wives

In terms of religion, Islam is more of a political movement than a religion. There is nothing in the Islamic texts that states categorically that women must wear a head scarf or be completely covered from head to foot in a burqa or burkini, this is an interpretation by the educated and misogynistic men who dominate Islam.

The hijab is essentially a head scarf which leaves the person’s face visible, but most often, women will also wear a full-length dress and less often long pants, jeans or leggings. It

The Epic Of Gilgamesh

A little middle eastern history

In this image we have the bull being conquered or subdued. In India going back perhaps thousands of years before this time cattle were highly revered for their ability to help sustain life on the first images of cattle appeared in Egypt around 5000 BC.

In this image, life has been tamed at least if not forcefully controlled and is symbolic of the rise of material civilisation at the expense of the spiritual which would soon lead to the idea of patriarchy and the spread of misogyny across the world.

The EPIC OF GILGAMESH is the earliest great work of literature that we know of outside of India, and was first written down by

Qatar

More an oil and gas corporation than a country

Officially Qatar is a sovereign country which essentially consists of the small Qatar Peninsula on the northeastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula and it’s capital is Doha. It has a land border is with Saudi Arabia to the south, but the rest of its territory is surrounded by the Persian Gulf. A strait in the Persian Gulf separates Qatar from the nearby island of Bahrain, as well as sharing sea borders with the United Arab Emirates and Iran.

This tiny country is notorious for supporting Al Qaeda-inspired terrorists in war-scarred Syria and tarnished its already infamous reputation by causing an ignominious scandal involving a female member of the Qatari royal

China on the move

China recently unveiled this god of war statue symbolising its new direction. A Tumblr image.

Western interest in China began in the 1620s and this country that was content within it’s own borders and economy had no interest in the rest of the world. There were of course Chinese sailors who ventured far from home but these travels were very limited and the most significant Chinese-Western relations occurred as the British East India company imposed itself on China causing the opium Wars and a consequent subjugation of China which some say it has not been forgiven.

In recent times we have seen China emerge as a economic and military superpower able to take on Europe

Sharia

Understanding the new paradigm

The Sharia dress code for women – no exceptions

It’s very difficult to remain ignorant of the fact that violence is on the increase around the world and that many are pointing the finger at Muslim people. But you may also be aware that people are touting Islam as a religion of peace and that those who are committing crimes and atrocities are simply radicalised people who are not associated with Islam.

This is a core aspect of Sharia Law, it encourages people to lie in order to help them achieve their goals and in this case it is the Islamification of the world. So if you like, Sharia law is the strong arm
