If in the Old City in Hebron, be sure to visit Mohammeds shop. Mohammed is one of the few people left in Palestine,  who still makes Sand Bottle Art BY HAND. Having originally learnt the trade from his uncle, who was rumoured to have been the best in Palestine. Mohammed can make anything from camels in the desert, to mini revolutionary Keffayah’s-and all for a mere 15 Shekels.

I like this because it’s green, and it’s a way to spread a message without defacing someone’s property. P.S. In my version, 99 percent or the peace symbol is substituted for the anarchy A.

This is King Farouk I of Egypt who ruled until 1952

During his reign:

Unemployment : 2%

A golden coin was wroth 0.98 Egyptian Pounds

The American Dollar was worth 0.25 Egyptian Pounds

Italians and Greeks worked in Egypt as waiters and barbers

Cairo was ranked as the most beautiful city in the world

New fashion trends hit cairo before paris

Egyptian taxi was an american cadillac 

Egypt loaned Britain 29 billion dollars that were not repaid

60 years later….

This is Mubarak 

During his reign:

Unemployment: more than 30%

A Golden coin is worth 2200 Egyptian Pounds

The American Dollar is worth 5 Egyptian Pounds

Egyptian youth are willing to die while illegally migrating for jobs abroad

Egyptian cities… no comment

We blindly follow the fashion trends of other cities 

A hyundai verna taxi is the best one in cairo

We import even wheat as foreign aid.

be that as it may, it must be mentioned that we actually had another revolution to get rid of King Farouq. So. Wooh, military coup and gullible Egyptians.

Check yoself before you wreck yoself — please stop blindly supporting the Green Movement

entarteten:

obliquecity:

gypsymothsradiotalk:

I’ve been asked multiple times by people why I don’t support Iran’s Green Movement, or why I’m so cynical about it. First off, contrary to the conclusion you might make after reading this list, I wholeheartedly support the civil rights movement in Iran, especially the one led by the younger generation, and whether it be called the Green Movement or the progressive movement—it’s my life’s passion. I wear a green bracelet every day to remind me not to forget about my brothers and sisters in Iran. I support the green sentiment (the color green in Iran has just espoused human and civil rights associations). Also, I’m not cynical. I’m realistic. I’ve studied Iranian history and politics for a lot of my life. I want the best for my people, and it’s important not to let ourselves get all emotional and tralalala happy about a potential overthrow. Here’s my laydown on the Green Movement.

1. It was awesome in 2009 to see people getting together and risking it all against a tyrannical government. People were united, they were in solidarity with one another, they were fearless. However, the 2009 riots were largely reactionary. Reactionary politics are dangerous. For the Green Movement to base itself solely on hatred for the Isalmic Republic won’t get anyone anywhere. And its base of support is slowly factionalizing and diminishing.

2. Don’t underestimate the power of nativist and nationalist sentiment in Iran. Nationalism in Iran has become so closely tied with religion and conservatism, that when one adopts one, they very very often adopt the others. Lately, people in Iran are pretty pissed at America and Israel. Pissed. Fed up with other nations undermining their sovereignty. During these crises, people tend to unanimously cement themselves to their nationalistic ideals and even if they are unaware of it, become more conservative and even a little more supportive of the Islamic Republic. And the IR knows exactly how to play the game. They play this up. It works swimmingly for them

3. Blind support of the Green Movement is a cop-out for people, espeically non-Iranians who don’t want to take the time to analyze the very complex and messy politics of civil rights and Iran, and come up with a complex solution to the complex problems. It’s never black and white, but that’s especially the case with Iran. The bad guys aren’t easy to identify, and neither are the good ones. I’m tired of seeing these naive people who have read one article Hamid Dabashi (who, by the way, is kind of a prick) praising the Green Movement and suddenly they pump their fists in the air yelling “Yeah, Green Movement woohoo!” It’s not that simple, and I’m annoyed by it. It’s a disservice to Iranians.

4. Which leads me to a bit of a funny story: when I tell my family in Iran about how much my peers love the Green Movement, they laugh and roll their eyes. “So the Americans, as usual, think they know what’s best for us.” I find that reaction to be a good summary of how people regard the situation — “Trust us, it’s not that simple, guys.”

5. Revolutions are bloody. Coup d’etats are bloody. It’s all bloody and I hate the romanticization of all of it. Stop chanting “revolution in Iran!” It’s insensitive to the people in Iran that have actually experienced and been scarred by revolution 

Again, I feel like emphasizing that I really do support this difficult to define “Green Movement”. It’s inspiring and hopeful. I just really hate when people jump on this bandwagon without knowing how multi-faceted this issue is.

so i love this person’s eloquence???? yes read this, this is good stuff to consider when it comes to Iran’s political and civil rights situation, especially for non-Iranians who are not exactly nuanced in the complexity of Iran, so read it

Although I do agree with most of this, I think there is a huge rampant generalization within this post that goes something along the lines of “PMOI = Majority of the Green Movement”… when, in reality, the Green Movement harbors quite a diverse population from what we have been hearing about it through information channels.

Where are credible English sources which clearly and plainly list and explain that diversity across - inside Iran and outside Iran? 

It’s not around. 

And many exploits that. Very irresponsibly. 

And if Iranian people are saying that should be changed - that current situation needs reconsideration - we should welcome it.

This video breaks my heart a million times over. Please, take just a few minutes out of your time to watch it:

A video showing the sacrifice of Egypt’s martyrs for their revolution. The fight from January through to the present day, against Mubarak, his police state, the army, and SCAF. A full list of the names of the fallen at the end of the film. Please share widely, and in solidarity.
