When Things Turn Really Bad!

Dear All & After Compliments;

1          What Has Been Happening So Far!

It has been a long while since I wrote anything in the format of an article for my websites – and as you know my two columns in The Oman Daily Observer took a natural death metaphorically by the wrong prescriptions of drugs and medicines to a slowly dying cancer victim! Sometimes the end comes quicker than expected after remission even – or when the patient was thought to be recovering by a new doctor – who turned out to be even worse than the previous doctors looking after the sick ailing patient – and ‘kicking the bucket’ for all to see!

Of course, with great cheers and happiness from some quarters determined and for some intentional wanting and willing for the columns to end! And yet still with some still craving for some more articles to come out – and a sort of relief that though the columns have ended in the said paper since November 2013 – see here –   – but ‘sort of relieved’ that I was still posting in my websites my articles – mainly in www.majidall.comwww.majidwrite.com – and opinions and views on www.majidsn.com . This apart of my books in www.myownmajid.comwww.myown-ebooks.com and www.majidbooks.com Plus the new websites for Short Takes (Stories) with mainly Omani theme at my new website at www.myshorttakes.com – and the Road Safety website at www.bethesafedriver.com

One can safely say that with all these websites belonging to me – and recently being that active in the Social Media – Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, What’s Up etc. – the losers are more the newspaper than me – because if there are still followers and fans out there they can still follow me! There are of course those that bought the newspaper only on the days that my articles would appear because they read more Arabic newspapers – and now will not be doing so! And those fans that may be inclined not to buy the newspaper anymore – because my articles no longer appear!

It reminds me of a good friend of mine – a Pilot – whom I had queried a long time ago that as we landed in Zanzibar small strip I thought I heard brakes as the plane was landing? I thought this was strange – because normally the brakes were being applied after the plane had gone to some distance – not as the plane was landing – and this is dangerous even to the layman! Metaphorically, when I used to write my columns I used to ‘apply the brakes’ so to speak as the pane was landing – but now in The Social Media I could write whatever I wanted to a reason without an Editing Staff interference – and as in many cases just for them to show they had power and control to ‘edit your articles’! Trust my Indian friends ‘not to let you down’! J !

2          The Gaza Impact

Take from me because all that I had wanted to say were in The Social Media where I was very active to what some may even dare to say to ‘dangerous levels’ – but a time comes in life when you have to do the ‘Right Thing at The Right Time’ – and that the ‘element of fear’ has long gone now! Or even if you do put a brave front – what is the difference – or what else is new? – As I like often to ask!

One thing I have noticed – even at home that people are at ‘short fuse’ and ready to explode at any moment! My granddaughter was asking me why those bad Jews (!) were killing innocent children – and what have the children done to be killed and to be hurt by this? I cried when one of The Palestinian girl had her legs amputated – including her mother too! – And she was asking her father when ‘When can I have my legs back, Daddy?’ – So heartbreaking and distressing – Sometimes those with children killed could even be classified ‘as luckier’ – than those with injured and maimed for life children!

Arab blood is not cheap as an Arab Leader had said. Another had said that we are ready to go back and ‘ride our camels’ – but is the West ready to do the same – if we ourselves burn all the oil wells to prevent them being taken over by our enemies!

Anyway, I was just watching Obama giving justifications of attacking the so-called Iraqi ‘Muslim’ fundamentalists to ‘protect the Yazidi people of Iraq! Sic! What about Gazans and The Palestinians Mr. Obama. I am sorry I voted for you in my way – I think even Bush was better and had more guts and courage than you Obama! I guess your converted Muslim father must be turning in his grave – the poor man! But then it must not be forgotten that Israel is also occupying, dominating and controlling USA UK and all the others – just as The West Bank is! Enough for a moment on Gaza – but I want to talk here on the repercussions of Gaza!

3          The Gaza Affects!

This week I had two incidents.

One

It was at a place that I had gone ‘for services’ but the treatment was at best ‘much wanting’ from such a high profile place always in the news! So I went instead to another pace where I was ‘treated better and more professionally cum ethically’ to my full satisfaction. I should have left it at that – but silly stupid me I never learn from my lessons – and I went up to put a claim for refund from the first place. They bluntly refused – so again I should have let things lie and accept my loss – but when I encountered that if it were a VIP or a customer of their likes – they would have refunded! All hell was let loose! With all kinds of provocations including the element of my writings! See this one for good measure www.majidwrite.com/2014/01/07/being-proud-conceited-and-haughty-in-life/ and even this one too! www.majidwrite.com/2012/10/28/the-disease-of-pride/ in elaborating and making the point!

This supposed to be Professional High Profile Person was so provocative and he had the guile and guts to tell me that ‘this is the reason your articles got ended’! Sic! and Double Sic! I respected and esteemed this person highly – and I had always considered him as ‘a brother and friend’ – but he got angry at me because I attacked his Secretary for saying NO to me as if she had this Authority to say No! So sad and tragic really!

Two

A simple request from a family member who was having his first daughter getting married and in good trust and faith had come to me for whatever I could muster to help him – seeing especially daughters’ marriages to be very expensive! I saw it myself a few months ago with my youngest daughter when I ended literally bankrupted!

So I passed the request to the other members of the family and relatives! Trust people to bring past histories – and past errors of judgments and mistakes to light – when that poor person has ‘as the East Africans say – Kuchonga Uso – that is ‘literally carving up my face’ in shame to ask others for favours and help! My late Father always warned us – the fastest way to lose respects and standings from people is to go to others to ask for help and favours! And the difference between men and God is that the more you ask from God Allah SWT He is more pleased with you – whist with human beings it is exactly the opposite!

Our Religion also tells us – that we should be kind and compassionate to our fellow human beings – and if we cannot then do not expect Allah God to be so inclined to you either on The Day of Reckoning and as they lower your body into the ground for burial! With ants, worms and others waiting to consume your body for a festive meal!

So this one family member ‘reminded me of what this man’s father – sic! – had done to our father before in their past lives! Why should we keep grudges of the past – when both the elders had forgiven each other? And for us the off springs to keep on the feud? And what has this poor girl getting married done as a mistake? Her grandfather parents mistakes? So she should be held accountable too! We forget that the same God that gave you – is the same God that denied this person!

This week I was very sick person with my glucose count down as a result of watching the Gaza scenes! And abdomen pain that found itself to be prostate too! Thank God so far not terminal or cancerous!

I need to take things easier and calmer now – but I guess the after effects of Gaza have hit many – and the vicious cycle seems for each one of us to turn against each other – instead of directing it to The Real Causer and Enemy! What hurts more are that in both cases I thought I was dealing with peoples friendly and known to me – but the end results and how these people turned out worse is very scary and alarming! God Allah Help and Protect and Preserve us all Ameen Amen.

I will not involve the case of doing a Human Resources Consultancy job for one Local Company from The South owned – and how I got raw treated and lost money (again and again)! How cruel and unkind we are to each other is not only scary and frightening – but is just an Omen of just more bad things and disasters waiting to happen to us! But I have said all these things already in my Arab Management books – A Cry For Help! – www.myownmajid.com and Psychology of Arab Management Thinking! www.trafford.com/08-0889

The only good news I had this week – from the stomach of evil came blessings – as The Arabs like to say – is this – please read it too! – http://bethesafedriver.com/2014/08/04/arabic-behind-the-wheel-book-now-available-on-line/

Stop The Gaza Massacres!

gaza-assault[1]

Or Live and Let Live!

TO ISRAEL, ITS BACKERS AND THE HYPOCRITES BETRAYALS – NOTHING IS PERMANENT IN THIS WORLD! EXCEPT GOD! YOUR DAY WILL COME SOONER THAN YOU EXPECTED!

And the Arab Leadership are afraid more of human beings than God Allah SWT – only eternal fire and punishment from the grave await you – Remember your Religion!

A Call To The Arab Armies To Help and Save The Situation!

I am writing this as a human being – and a citizen of the land – and with rights and freedom to express myself – though trust me – I hate ‘politics’ for sure – and even in writing it!

Writing is a struggle against silence. Carlos Fuentes

This article was written on November 5 2012 with the last invasion. If you read it all over again – it is history repeating itself against the biggest prison camp in the world of Gaza – whilst so-called Democracy and Freedom Preachers and their Associates and The Hypocrites look the other way – because they are more afraid of people rather than God Allah SWT! Shame on all of them – especially The Hypocrites!

 

Horrific Gaza Images – Family of 10 killed in their home!

As a small boy of 5 years of age I used to wonder out aloud this tease from the African elders that they used to make after a hawk (eagle) has scooped down and taken up in the air the hurriedly and scurriedly running for cover baby chickens with its mother. Even the cock used to run too – instead of facing its ground the adversary! The tease (joke) was that the chickens were cursing that ‘May the sky fall on the eagle!’ You cannot blame the Mother Chicken for saying that seeing its baby has already been taken away by the hawk! It is a desperate vain attempt to go on with life – with all the hawks around!

You will excuse me for the also simile and the metaphor – especially to those that love and defend our adversaries in privacy and in secrecy – whilst pretending and acting in front of us for whatever reason like wishing to keep the job and welcome etc. But if I was a play or drama writer – and I had money to spare – I would write this satirical tragical drama of how the so-called Israeli leaders find themselves lumped together and meeting Hitler in burning eternal hell – and their protesting that a grave and serious mistake has been made! Only this time of all the machinations and schemers of their controlling media and their supporters would not work – because it is God that they are facing now!

Horrific Gaza Images – Family of 10 killed in their home!

In my life one thing that I hate the foremost is in ‘cursing people’ – but I can easily curse those people that do not see much or a great deal of killed babies, children and women – and even men – when bombs rain down on their homes – and killing entire families at one go! Sometimes I feel that even if he is in Hell – but Hitler and his Nazi cronies cannot afford but smile seeing his victims ‘doing it also to other peoples’!

Horrific Gaza Images – Family of 10 killed in their home!

You will excuse me also for sounding religious and all the semantics and similes involved – and for those that do not know it – or know but prefer to marginalise and to ignore! But our Great Prophet Abraham (Ibrahim) – peace be upon him – is turning in his grave seeing his grandchildren doing these things to each other! I am saying this as a Grandfather feels seeing sometimes my innocent young grandchildren fight each other – and with typical ‘chip of the old block’ feelings and expressions like ‘do not like you’ escapades and remarks!

Horrific Gaza Images – Family of 10 killed in their home!

I am very certain and convinced that there would be some people saying to me that you are only looking at one side of the story – and not both sides – and ‘we expected better things from you’! I would retort that is how they control their media and our minds and outlooks – because Israel (and their supporters – disappointing others again – too soon too!) – are very good in pushing things to the maximum – and when people react – unfortunately negatively and to their disadvantage – they start ‘history and episodes’ from these incidents – and not from the start of what they did! Sadly and with great hurt and sadness too their blind supporters of whatever Israel is doing to others.

When Saddam Hussein attacked Iran (the Mullahs!) we in the Arab world remained quiet and passive – though we were warned and cautioned that one day he will do the same to us when that was over. Either we ignored it – or thought it could never happen – but it did happen in the invasion of Kuwait – and all Hell was let loose!

It seems to me that once again we have not learnt our lessons of history. I am saying that with due respects to both sides of the equation – that wants to divide the Islamic world into contrasting and conflicting political zones! And if those that see what is happening in Gaza now do not awake up from this deep sleep and slumber – then let them sleep for good and not wake up ever again – because a person who can do this to your own brother ‘is definitely not your ally and or friend either! And you have got your priorities all mixed-up and all wrong!

And that brings me to my next point I wish to make here too! The biggest casualty and victim in such wars is The Truth! It is just degrading and shameful – I would even say disgusting, repugnant and pathetic when ‘people in leadership’ who should know better take side to support blindly what the true Aggressor is doing to other human beings! Also to both sides not to make a worse situation turn even more worse!

If the Arab spring uprisings have not forewarned and w\’woken them up’ – let me try a desperate last attempt in resuscitation! Which is this! Even the young Arab true blood (and even Muslim) abhor and are disgusted to see what is going on – and done to other people by these peoples – who were themselves holocaust victims – but have now easily and conveniently forgotten. Our Great Prophet Moses (Musa) is just another chapter in the history!

What I mean to say that future relationships between people – especially with the young ones – are critically damaged – and that is not only internationally and globally – but even internal too. The world now has become a more dangerous and unsafe place with all that is going on – and the increased extremism, fundamentalism and radicalisation – and sadly and tragically with the younger ones too – and the future leaders in society

People should learn to live and let live – and we have enough problems and hardships already to be increased by such unneeded wars, destructions, malaise, decadence and wastages of wars. And we will all die one day – and meet our Maker! If you had escaped the Human Rights courts of the world – there is definitely a Higher Judge just waiting for you – and that will be the day when you meet him!

I would advise Israelis and all their supporters to hear the interview between Sir Robert Frost and Bishop Desmond Tutu in Al Jazeera – posted here too in www.majidwrite.com – and time to change fast before it is too late!

May peace, understanding, tolerance, co-existence and patience prevail – including pragmatism and senses – Amin Amen! Take Care!
