I don't know how famous this got world wide- but if your in America you know for sure: Last week Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan killed 7 and wounded 13. (or #'s close to that)
Name seem familiar? Yep, he was a muslim. Supposdly scared of being deployed to Iraq/somewhere-like-that.
Also supposdly- he said "ALLAH AKBER" while shooting.
And while we cry out loud so much to say that Muslims ARE NOT all terroists. That no where in our religion is killing the way to go. Neither is JIHAD have anything to do with the war. But then we get people like this. How can you stop people from coming up with stuff like this, when the guy acted so religious, was an active part of his local mosque, and talked about Islam all the time during his job?
This article from the link (above), is written by some Canada guy named Salim Mansur. His name sounds very Muslim to me too but lets not look at that right now. He said...
" ...no mistaking that Nidal Hasan went out as an Islamist warrior to kill as many infidels before he found his martyrdom. "
"...Islamist terrorism is not an alien off-shoot within Muslim history. It is instead a mutation of a violent strain of Muslim religious thought and practice that might be traced back to the earliest years of Islam. "
"...For Islamists, religion is politics and national identity and the purpose of their jihad until victory or death is to establish in the here and now Islamic rule associated with Muhammad and his companions in the first. "
to end off with...
"...Nidal Hasan acted on his Islamist belief as did the 19 Arab-Muslim terrorists on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001. He should be considered a war criminal and not a tragic victim of some mental illness and what he did was treason against his country.."
Any muslim reading this right now should be in a fit of rage.
so we have people like Organica who do random nice deeds so this type of sterotype won't be made-
but what the whole world reads and hears is what the man above stated.
Oh, btw- this article is the 1st result from google when you search, "Fort Hood".
Please work to stop this steroptype- show the world that this isn't what Islam is about.

Hi! ☺ Like my symbols? I 'discovered' them the other day. (I'll give the codes at the end of this post- it only works if your laptop/computer has a numeric keypad)
Anyhow...have you read Alisha's Allhamdulillah List? I found it very inspiring!!!! Lovely post, Alisha!!! ♥
This Saturday I asked my sis if we can go to the mall (nearby) cause i didn't have much to do.
So we went- it was fun. I like to hang out with my sis- esp. at that Mall. We spent a bunch of time in Sephora, since my sis wants a new mascara. :) We found a mirror that made us both look very pretty. We REALLY wanted to take it home- what's better than a mirror that always uplifts ur self esteem? heehee.
Then we went to this other beauty shop for a couple minutes, and then to Panera Bread. I convinced my sis because i love the Med. Veggie and [raspberry] mango shake there! Plus it's more fun. She was not interested in spending $$$ but what-ever. :P Oh, btw- if u've never been to Panera Bread and had the Med. Veggie ur missing out on a TON of goodness. :)
Hmm....it's doce y uno. More like medianoche (midnight in spanish). Maybe I should
Here's the codes. (remember- only works if u have a numeric keypad)
alt + 1 = ☺
alt + 2 = ☻
alt + 3 = ♥
alt + 12 = ♀
alt + 13 = ♪
alt + 14 = ♫
alt + 15 = ☼
alt + 19 = ‼
alt + 0161 = ¡
alt + 1456 = ░
**Those were just some that i found interesting. If you explore- there are codes for the whole alphabet (in lowercase and uppercase) money symbols, and more. Just hit random numbers! :P ***

No, nothing happened. Life is [fortunately] very normal.
I mean my social studies teacher did say Jihad and Terrorists in the same sentence- and i was so very mad-but i suppose that's normal??? idk...i mean it's the first time and so it's not normal.
Nvm- I'm over it until he says something else. :P
I'm recording Video Cd's on my dad's computer so my mom can listen to them in her car. This is VERY boring cause each track is 30 min. long!!!!!
well i hope Specs has a lovely and happy marriage-Liya finds her apple (MaYbE :P)-UltaSeedha: it's really sad what is going on in pk...that's another reason y the jihad thing made me mad- and Alisha keep cooking!
that was because i haven't done ANY blogging 4 like ever.
