The kids got new toys for #eid, and I got to take a few toy pictures, and the city got a much needed addition to the police force.

When we were kids, I remember a lot of girls in my class would suddenly start to cover their heads during #ramadan. A lot has changed .
Great to have you here. How does it feel to follow someone who doesn’t quite know how to reply to comments here ? Lol
This snapshot thing is the only way I know -_-
If these font sizes don’t speak to the relative value of Palestinian life, I don’t know what does.
In addition to the font size, its also the language surrounding the deaths.
Not only do we know of the two Israelis, but also their occupation (they were soldiers sent to kill) and where they were killed.
Over 300 Palestinians are just referred to as deaths. Anything that was once alive could die. Animals, foliage, etc. They couldn’t even say Palestinians. Even acknowledging the identity of the colonized and allotting them basic humanity is too provocative. No location, no root of cause (because then it’d have to be understood that Israeli aggression is indeed at fault). Just 330 deaths. It all exists in a detached vacuum.
But it does refer back to Hamas. No matter what happens to Palestinians, its implicitly suggested that Hamas is to blame. Everything Israel does is reactionary under the normalization of Zionist brutality. To someone who doesn’t understand the nature of Israeli settler colonialist violence, this could very well be understood as Hamas killing Palestinians. The only mention of Israel is through a victim narrative.
"I want to be remembered as someone who was sincere. Even if I made mistakes, they were made in sincerity. If I was wrong, I was wrong in sincerity. I can deal with a person who was wrong, as long as they were sincere."
"When we understand Islam in a rigid, extreme, and impractical way, we end up developing multiple personalities: One personality for society, another personality for the home, a third personality for the masjid, and perhaps a fourth personality for when we are alone. We are unable to really develop a deep, integrated Islamic personality. And so, besides being superficial, that personality also becomes highly unstable and corruptible."
Eid Mubarak :)
Eid Mubarak everyone :) especially to the very few who actually see my posts :D
I hope you have a wonderful one :)
H - the helipad. A part of the rarely used runway in #khewra, (#punjab, #pakistan) marked for helicopter landings. I remember this runway was used for the landings of prime ministers chopper when he flew by to monitor the flood situation in 1992. I think that was the only time a chopper landed here. Khair we have given this enough attention ever since by cycling around it :p
