ـ "... إن فى الإنسان منطقة عجيبة سحيقة لا تصل إليها الفضيلة ولا الرذيلة ، ولا تشع فيها شمس العقل والإرادة ، ولا ينطق لسان المنطق ، ولا تطاع القوانين والأوضاع ، ولا تتداول فيها لغة أو تستخدم كلمة ... إنما هى مملكة نائية عن عالم الألفاظ والمعاني ... كل مافيها شفاف هفاف يأتي بالأعاجيب فى طرفة عين ... يكفي أن ترن فى أرجائها نبرة ، أو تبرق لمحة ، أو ينشر شذا عطر ، حتى يتصاعد من أعماقها فى لحظة من الإحساسات والصور والذكريات ، ما يهز كياننا ويفتح نفوسنا على أشياء لا قبل لنا بوصفها ، ولا بتجسيدها ، ولو لجأ إلى أدق العبارات و أبرع اللغات ... " ـ

توفيق الحكيم

Within man lies a deep wondrous spot, to which neither virtue nor vice can reach. Upon which the sun of reason and will never rises. In which the mouth of logic never speaks, the laws and rules are never obeyed, and not a language is used nor a word is ever spoken.
It is a distant Kingdom, beyond words and meanings. With everything is a sheer murmur offering wonders in a blink. From the depths of which, suffice a single tone or a flash of mind or a scent of a perfum, to allow rise of emotions, pictures and memories, a rising that will shake our being and open ourselves to things we can neither describe nor materialize even if we used the most refined of phrases or the most skillful of languages.

Tawfiq Al-Hakim.

Gaza Flotilla

Israel is playing its favorite game once more, breaking international law then playing the victim role.
It attacked *in the international waters* a humantarian convoy carrying only foods and medicine to blockaded Gaza strip with navy comandos killing 19 *Un-Armed* humanitarian activist and wonding tens others in unjustified violence to humanitarians .
the convoy included more than 700 activists from Europe, the Arab world , America and Asia and some are high-profile personalities, a Nobel peace prize winner, writters, former US congress woman, european and arab and turkish Parliamentarians and many others.

What I want to comment on here is the video aired by the IDA regarding the raid , they try to picture them selves once more like victimes , attacked by chairs and sticks , GIVE ME A BREAK , what did you expect, a red carpet and flowers on the boats when you get down from the choppers ???????

-- the video can be seen on many sites an this is one one of them
http://www.nydailynews.com/news/world/2010/06/01/2010-06-01_untitled__video01m.html?page=1

and what bothers me more is the twisting of facts some pro-israeli media and politicians are begining to do !!
But looking at the video the other way around , it shows clearly that these activest were HARMLESS , UN-ARMED humanitarians who were seeking peacfuly and quitly to deliver their load to the poor and needy in Gaza and that's all. and look what the *always victim* country did. shame on any one who would take Israel side. shame on the international community if it didn't react properly.

another video aired live from one boat can be seen here
