Notes and tidbits posted on FB and Twitter. Part 127

Note 1: I take notes of books I read and comment on events and edit sentences that fit my style. The page is long and growing like crazy, and the sections I post contains months-old events that are worth refreshing your memory.

Without firm comprehension of the customs and traditions in the Levant (mainly, current Palestine, Lebanon, Jordan, and Syria) and its geographical, historical, and religious context, the Christians, in their entire spectrum of sects, will stay disoriented and out of touch with their identity.

Watch closely how Vice President Pence is distancing himself from Trump in the coming 3 months. (actually, he stuck more closely with Trump because he was one of the main staunch supporters of Jerusalem pronouncement)

Actually, this 3-month period for closing the file of Palestine Independent State is neither feasible or practical: It is what the inner circle of Trump consider the window for the impeachment proceeding to begin

US/Israel want a single urgent mission from Saudi Kingdom Crown Prince: closing the file of Palestine Independent State within 3 months

The downfall of Saudi Kingdom Crown Prince will come from the internal enemies he selected to be his allies, and who have been intrinsic allies with US/Israel, before he even was born

It is these “leaders” of minority political parties who keep hammering in their rhetoric: “My nation is first” who are first exploited by foreign powers to destabilize their countries. 

In the game of Petanque (Bachi) you usually have 2 teams, each team of 3 members, each member plays 2 metallic balls (boules). Thus the max score in each round is 6. The team of Adonis scored 4. Adonis screamed: we have got 7. JP responded in anger: How can you score 7? Adonis replied: On mesure.

Change comes: 1) in small steps 2) in consistent effort 3) within group support

Every village had a burying ground facing east and guests, by the custom of hospitality, could be enjoying the same facilities. Afroun replied: “Abraham you are a reverend and I shall bury your deceased member in the best of our graves” Abraham had set his mind to settle in Canaan and wanted his own burial ground, thus he asked to buy a piece of land.  Afroun replied: “A land of no more than 400 silver shekels should not be an obstacle” Abraham got the hint and sent the amount.

Success is a personal standard: What you set is what you get. (Sweet, but better not believe yourself superman)

Your worldview is a unique model that you tailored-made throughout your life, experiences, conditions, situations… in order to survive the thousands of daily problems, frustrations and barriers.

Everyone else makes bad decisions, is shortsighted, prejudiced, subject to whims, temper tantrums, outbursts and short-term thinking. Once you see it that way, it’s easier to remember that we’re everyone too.

15,000 scientists just sent out an SOS — a “warning to humanity” that if we don’t stop polluting, our planet is doomed: species are going extinct at 1000 times the natural rate. 90% of the Great Barrier Reef is dead or dying. Oceans are so choked with plastic that fish are addicted to eating it.

Kad kaana deeny fi jayb kombazi, wa naza3tahou (my religion) 3anni lamma rakebt al ba7r, ba3eedan 3an watani. 

I didn’t re-stuff them back or emulated them, my religion and my traditions, when I came back home(Amine Rihani)

The Jewish Charles Netter was wondering why the Reformist Jews (mostly French at the time) were opting for the Oriental Jews to immigrate to America.  He traveled to Istanbul to negotiate the settlement of a land in Palestine carrying over 100,000 francs that was supplied by the French banker Salomon Goldschmidt (president of UIA)

Bees are the messengers of love for flowers

Soldiers were aware that the war movies were all propaganda, the message was discredited and deemed hollow before the movie rolled and the message was dismissed. Nine weeks later, the statistics changed and reverted to supporting war activities.

Aimer passionement sans etre paye’ de retour est un mal de mer en bateau: on se sent mourir mais qui fait rire le monde autour de nous

L’Eglise, les Enfants, la Cuisine (Kirche, Kinder, Kuche), les 3 K du programme Allemand pour les femmes, until recently.

Des corps disparus, en poussiere. Le vif de leur desir, le vrai de leur ardeur: pulverises. Je prefere contempler ses tableaux, lire ses oeuvres.

The Sleeper Effect of our memory: the source of the argument fades faster than the argument or the message. And the message (war is necessary and noble) fades much slowly (or even endure) than the propaganda itself

Campaign Ads should be restricted to the period of a single month before the campaign start and be banned later on during the campaign: minimize the devastating propaganda message that lingers way longer than we think.

Before you read an article, you need to ask this question: Who benefit? Cui bono? is a great training behavior to refine what you read.

The Egyptian must assimilate that Al Arish is closest to the Zionist State and its terror tactics. Egypt must side-track the military arrangement with Israel and let its army loose in all the Sinai and the ports of Red Sea. 

There is huge confusion and contentions out of subject matter between abstract belief concepts in religion and the context of the belief system.  No wonder that Christianity generates as many splits as abstraction can sustain.
