WADJDA in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

The movie is an authentic Saudi Arabian, written and directed by a Saudi Arabian female, Haifaa al Mansour. It gives us a little peek into women’s lives in Saudi Arabia. I repeat only a little peek. If you are intrigued about this closed society where women are treated as second class citizens, who have to cover up in black, their faces hidden in public with no freedom rights, whose sole purpose is to please and do men’s bidding, then you’ll want to watch this. The dialogue is in Arabic but with English subtitles.
Its wonderful to see the spirit of this little girl, her motivation, determination, vision, desire, and I only wonder how long will it take to break her spirit! When she gets married off to an older man before she’s fifteen and then perhaps later even more, when he gets his second or third or fourth wife legally? They (I think you know who I mean by they) enjoy all the modern technology plus some because they can afford it but they have not yet evolved enough to understand that it is the male who determines the gender of the child and not the female, that woman is just as important as man in the scheme of life, that freedom is a universal law, that men who are evolved are able control their sex desires and do not have to attack a woman just because they see her face! (sorry I had to I just had to let it out)
And how dismal to see all those women walking around in black! ‘God’ which is Arabic for ‘Allah’ has nothing but abundance in the universe, just note all the colours of nature!
Do you see the bitterness, anger and despair in some of the teachers’ faces as they impose the impossible rules of their society on the younger girls?
More interesting even is to read about the director and how the movie was made

By the way I want to say thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart, to all who are following my blog, for all the encouraging comments, and those who share my blogs with their followers. I do enjoy reading all your comments so here’s an official thank you, and a huge warm hug to one and all.
May nothing but love and peace reign on earth! May there be an end to this chaos, madness and ignorance! If only intelligence were contagious, we would have heaven on earth!

American Soldiers Are Waking Up!

You need to see this video. These are young American men who are thinking. Finally!  They dare to think! Bless them all.

The most surprising fact is that not many more thousands are speaking up. Are they all asleep, afraid or are they void of all consciousness?

Here’s someone who recognizes who the real enemies are!

You need to read my book to understand the Arabs, Iraq, Baghdad, and the history behind it all and the role that the Western world plays in the Middle East….. otherwise you literally have no idea about anything. Western media doesn’t even give you half the story. Baghdad has been reduced to rubbles leaving a damaged broken skeleton of a society behind. The question is WHY? What was the real reason behind all this senseless bloodshed and destruction? And who has benefited from it all? And why are they able to get away with it? Why is this not considered a war crime?

Born and raised in Baghdad I was moved to write about the first two decades of my life in Baghdad in the forties and fifties when Baghdad was a modern thriving cosmopolitan city with people from all backgrounds and religions were living working socializing rubbing shoulders side by side with no problem. This was the case in all of the modern cities of the Middle East. What happened and why? To satisfy the shameless greed of some and ignorant fanaticism of others millions of families all over the world suffer senselessly.

Once Upon a Time in Baghdad  easy pleasant enriching educational informative reading giving the reader a taste of life as it used to be that not many know or remember. Most of the older generation who knew has passed away and the younger Arab generations have no idea just what they are missing.
