Stop saying it’s okay when your soul’s bleeding. Stop trying to dodge knives that always end up in the depths of your heart. Stop looking to the ceiling hoping that tears won’t overflow. Stop taking people’s shit. Walk away. Fuck them all.

In Pictures: Childbirth under Israeli attack

The emergency department of Gaza’s al-Shifa hospital takes in between 25-50 pregnant women per day.

As the emergency department of the al-Shifa hospital becomes increasingly overcrowded, a steady stream of pregnant Palestinian women is arriving in a building tucked behind the main hospital. Receiving between 25 to 50 women per day they are now having to redirect medical supplies to the intensive care unit.

Among the women is 28-year-old Hanan al-Mahessn. On the second day of the air strikes, her neighbour’s home was hit and destroyed. “I started to feel sick. Then the bleeding started,” she told Al Jazeera. Hanan was rushed to the hospital and lost three pints of blood. After going into surgery, her baby was delivered, but had died in the womb. The doctors made the decision to tell her that her little girl was in a special care unit as they felt she was too ill to receive the news. A day later she learnt the truth.

"My children are used to this war. They have grown up with the sound of bombs," said Mariam Guneed, 39, a mother of eight. "We must have many children here, because we lose so many in the wars," Mariam reflects as she returns to her room to sit and await the birth of her ninth child.

Less than a few kilometres from Shifa is the al-Awda hospital in the Jabalaya refugee camp of Gaza, one of the poorest areas of the city. At just 30 minutes old Nisreen has been born into a country under siege. The sounds of Israeli drones and bombardments can be heard above and the all too familiar whoosh of a Hamas rocket breaks the silence of the city. In a few days time, she will leave the hospital with her mother into an area which has suffered a large number of Israeli air strikes.

15-Year-Old African Kid Tells Madonna To Go ‘Have Sex’ with Herself ›


Dakarai Molokomme, a 15-year-old starving child from a small village in Zimbabwe, has just told , one of the most famous pop stars in the world, to  and f*** , the local media are reporting exclusively.

“Yes, it’s true, I told Madonna to go f*** herself. Do you want to know why?” Dakarai asked. “It’s the same thing every time with these snobby rich Americans. Every once in a while they come to show us their support for the so-called eradication of poverty by adopting a child from a starving family, but they actually do more harm than good. Transracial international adoptions are part of the white savior industrial complex,” Dakarai explained.

In further discussions with journalists from the media, the  stated that “none of the children here actually want to be taken away from their family and friends so they can be displayed as some kind of trophy in the homes of self-righteous singers or actors who want to score some points with the media and Oprah.”

“If they really want to help us, they should get Big Pharma to ship us some anti-retroviral drugs for the AIDS epidemic, or build schools and hospitals. If they don’t want to do that, then they can all go f** themselves!” the child told reporters.

The 15-year-old also stated that he would say the same thing to any one of those American or European “faux humanitarian posers”, except for Bono, whom he said he would also kick in the groin.

“Bono’s efforts to save the African savage from itself prove that the colonial imperative is alive and well,” Dakarai said as he walked with other village children collecting sticks to build a tree fort.

It should never be thought that Palestinians in Gaza have gotten used to wars. We love life.
Ibrahim al-Batsh wrote on Twitter on 26 June: “I finally finished my high school exams, and I pray for success after all that hard work studying! Please pray for me and all students.”
On 15 July, last Tuesday, all the results from the high school exams were announced, including Ibrahim’s. But he, along with other 18 martyrs, would never know them. Two days before the much-anticipated announcement, Ibrahim, together with his mother, father and 15 more members of their family, were killed by Israeli missiles.

قوم نحرق هالمدينة و نعمر واحدة أشرف
Come, lets burn this city down and build a better one
قوم ننسى هالزمان و نحلم زمن ألطف
Let’s forget these times and dream of nicer ones
مازالك بلا شىء ما فيك تخسر شىء
Since you still have nothing, then you have nothing to lose
و أنا مليت من عشرة نفسى
And I’m sick of being alone
كان بدى غير العالم مش عارف كيف العالم غيرنى
I wanted to change the worldI don’t know how the world changed me
كان بدى احمل السماء وهلأ أنجق حامل نفسى
I wanted to carry the sky, now I can’t even carry myself

Say that I’m okay
قول اننى منيح

Sleep reigned over the Kufan town,

As from the mosque came a godly sound.

The call for prayer filled the sky,

Moving the air with a gentle sigh.

Awakening Muslims with a gentle prod,

“O people come, and pray to God.”

And in the silent mosque, Ali (AS) stood alone,

Gazing at every wall and stone.

He knew that these walls would be stained with blood,

Innocent, pious, saintly blood.

Today his blood would be shed,

These clean walls would be covered in red.

He was eager for martyrdom I am sure,

It was then he heard a tiny snore.

In a corner a sleeper lay,

Ali (AS) knew he had not come to pray.

Gently Ali (AS) awoke the man,

“Awake awake, O Ibn Moljim.

Come it is nearly time to pray,

Awake for the coming day.

I know your work, I know why you’ve come,

Remember your deed cannot be undone.”

Ibn Moljim, nothing did say,

Quickly he rose and walked away.

Ali (AS) prepared for prayer as the Muslims came,

Ready to pray in Allah’s Name.

“Allah-u-Akbar” his voice began,

Behind him stood Ibn Moljim.

“Allah-u-Akbar” Ali (AS) said again,

And knelt before God with the other men.

Suddenly Ibn Moljim moved forward to kill,

His sword with poison was definitely filled.

He raised his sword and struck it down,

Confusion was there all around.

Ali’s neck was covered with blood,

His head prostrated before his God.

Ibn Moljim quickly ran,

He was a scared and sinful man.

And Ali (AS) reeled back not crying out his pain,

His blood-drenched lips spoke in Allah’s name.

His heart felt happy, his mind so light,

He was finally ending his worldly life.

His sons held him in their arms,

As if to protect him from this physical harm.

His smiling lips parted and then he said,

“I thank Thee O Lord for a martyr’s death.”

Soon Ibn Moljim was brought before Ali (AS),

His state was terrible, Ali (AS) could see.

His bonds were cutting deep in his skin,

Causing the blood to spurt from within.

A frown creased Ali’s brow,

He ordered the bonds be loosened NOW.

The murderer into tears broke,

Ali (AS) smiled faintly and then he spoke.

“It is not too late to repent O Ibn Moljim,

Was I an unjust or cruel Imam?”

Then to his sons, Ali (AS) said,

“Give him a drink to relieve his head.”

But Ibn Moljim didn’t trust Ali,

He refused the drink quietly.

Ali (AS) then spoke, “O Ibn Moljim,

Why do you not trust your dying Imam?

If you had taken this juice of mine,

You’d be with me in Heaven divine.”

In two more days Ali (AS) died,

So “Think not of those slain in the way of Allah as dead, Nay, they are living, with the Lord they have provision.”

(Qur’an, 3:169)

You doubted yourself. Someone you valued dearly once made you feel like you were not good enough. It could have been through words or actions, but it left a mark on you. It left you hesitant to act or react, because you feared you would remember the words that were said or never said. You hid…


And of His signs is [that] He shows you the lightening [causing] fear and aspiration, and He sends down rain from the sky by which He brings to life the earth after its lifelessness. Indeed in that are signs for a people who use reason.
