"Safe" Landings, Strong Iraqi Tea...or another Angry Manifesto.


I am a firm believer that people should really get very honest with themselves, once and for all. If they do so, everything will fall into place.

Take today's pilot for instance. He is not fit to fly anything, not even a kite let alone an areoplane. Really, my suggestion to him is to change professions altogether.
I see him much better off, keeping some kiosk, selling bubble gum and tobacco. There is nothing wrong with becoming a kiosk vendor, you know. Maybe the current puppet Iraqis should take up that vocation too and leave government and politics to REAL men.

Shit, the landing was so bad, my butt is still shaking....And just by coincidence I was listening to a song by Elvis Presley - All shook up. Came in handy. A sign that a Higher Power does exist and that nothing is a coincidence. Or as the French say "Le hasard fait bien les choses."Yes indeed, we landed in one piece...and that was remarkably good, seeing the kind of pilot we had.

The minute I arrived "home" and even before I had enough time to deposit my suitcase in some corner, I was told

- Yalla, Layla, ta'allee- Come Layla, we have so much to tell you.
- Can't it wait ?
- La'a. No. We missed you and we have so much to tell you.
- OK then, first my Iraqi chai, (tea), will not listen or discuss anything before having my Iraqi chai.
- Chai is ready, just sit down and hear the news...
- OK, give it to me now, who died ?
- La'a (no), this time, al Hamdullilah no one died, but...
- But what? Yalla,quickly am tired.
- You will not believe it, but your cousin Z. returned "home".
- What ? You mean she returned to Baghdad ?
- Yes.
- Wait a minute here, how can she ? Her eldest son is called Bakr, her daughter, Aisha and her youngest Omar. And her home is today in a all Shiite area ?
- Simple...She veiled herself. And since the Syrian authorities will neither accept Bakr or Aisha in their universities, she had no choice but to return.
- And where are her kids now ? And what about Omar ?
- They are safely hidden at your aunt's place. She can't take risks. And listen to the rest...Her house is in shambles. She had to pay so much money to get the "habarbashieh" out. - "Habarbashieh" stands for the new thugs of Iraq. Poor thing they left her house in ruins...
- And what about ours ?
- Don't ask.
- What do you mean don't ask - what happened to our home ???
- Ya Layla, some things in life, you need to let go of...


At that point I needed some stiff booze in my tea...

- I want to know, what happened ? Khalass, it's already taken for good ?
- Yes, am afraid so and not much can be done.
- I can't believe that !!!
- Listen to the rest...
- I don't want to listen to anything else. Tell me now, what do you mean for good ?
- Ya bintee,(my daughter) this is our destiny.
- I can't believe that. What about all the money we gave to W. to keep the place ?
- He could not hold out any longer...
- Ya'nee, what you are telling me, our home is no longer ?
- Listen to the rest...
- Ya Umee, I don't give a damn about the rest right now...Are you telling me everything we worked for and owned is gone just like that ?
- Ya bintee...(my daughter)


I wanted to hear nothing more...It's gone. Another "thing" gone. Another attachement gone. Another anchor gone. Another reference gone. Another memory gone. What does it matter anymore ? What is left ?

But of course, it did not stop...

My tea tasted like some bitter poison.

Why ? Why this poison I asked myself. Why this poison from whom I considered my brothers and sisters ? I can't fucking believe it.

OK, I tried rationalizing away the impossible...I tried understanding by giving labels, calling them Iranians, or calling them sectarians...or finding another, any other word to make sense of it all...Even when they came from Sadr City, and did what they did to the Nawasib (sunnis) males and FEMALES, I said to myself, it can't be them...But today I have no more words or labels left in my repertoire. It must be them.

- Wait till you hear the rest...

Thinking to myself, is there any "rest" to hear ?

- You remember M's daughter ? (M is a Christian). Imagine, they would not let her through the gates of the University because she was not veiled. She said to them, I don't want to veil. They mocked her and said you don't veil you don't get in.
And do you remember A.? (A is a muslim). She had the exact same problem with her daughter. You veil or you leave the university now! Besides, your aunt S. said to me that all of your cousins are veiled today. Even R! Can you imagine! They have to, the poor ones, they have NO CHOICE. Really they should have told us they wanted an Islamic Republic of Iran in Iraq. At least we would have prepared ourselves...


Someone pour some pure undiluted alcohol in my tea now ! I need a stiff drink. A non armed AK.47, non lethal, non-dangerous stiff drink.
Very stiff...As stiff as you are. As stiff as your minds. As stiff as your beliefs. As stiff as your loyalties...As stiff as your denial...

Why, are you already blaming me ?

So what are you saying ? She is drunk, this is so haram. I wish I were drunk...the impact would have been delayed for a few days...Right now I feel one of your swords piercing me, the same sword that you use to slice your heads with.
Right now I feel chains choking me, the same chains that you wrap yourselves in. Right now I feel flogged and whipped, the same whips that you use to "relieve" yourselves...

Don't mind a crazy woman like myself...I am of half a mind. Is that not what they taught you in Qum ? So let me be and let me ask you a few questions, since am so retarded, surely you can't hold it against me. And do forgive my outright foul language, after all, am nothing but a "saqeeta" of a woman (a fallen woman).

Ya awlad al Gahba (sons of whores), tell me, who is the ma'seeya - the rebellious one here, that needs to be taught a lesson - you or her ?

Ya awlad al Muta'a, ya awlad al Gawada -- who is the one who needs to be veiled here ?
Her or your dirty, ugly hypocritical faces, you lice ridden shits from your pedophile hell hole Hawza ?

Tell me now ya awlad al ar'zeez, ya munafekeen, ya awlad al kalb. I am too angry to translate the insults. Ask your Obama the booma's foreign office to do the fucking translation for you or maybe settle for the Angry "Arab" - he has good translation skills when it comes to servicing you or ultimately you can turn to the Iranian foreign office.

Ya awlad al sharmoota from Nejaf, Kerbala, Qum and Tehran. How many of you have become sheikhs and mullahs today ? How many have worn the cloak of purity whilst your putrid stench still fills my nostrils from 2003 until this very day.

Ya hypocrites from the Hawza of the dajaleen and the charlatans, tell me now -- how much more acid are you intending to throw in our faces ? Tell me now, how much more rape are you planning on, to prove the purity of your religiosity. Tell me now, how many will you torture, drill, nail, whip, to prove your God, your fake false God from your stench filled muta'a gatherings.

Tell me now. Tell me now, how many nawasibs, christians and others are you willing to drive away, exile and murder in the name of your fucking Mahdi ?

So you think am drunk ? I wish I were...I wish I were...I wish something, anything can take my lucidity away...

So who is the fallen one ya rotten filthy ones - the one who does not veil to go to university or you who prevents her ?

Who is the fallen one here ya kharra ya shits, the one who takes a drink, or you the rapists, the torturers and the murderers ?

Yalla tell me, come on tell me, who is the fallen one here ? The one who collaborated with the Occupier, who invented and falsified stories, who ethnically cleansed and who built ghettos, or the one who walks the street, innocent ?

Ha?! Yalla tell me ya awlad al kalb. Had I not been a Muslim myself, I would have cursed your Hassan, Hussein and the rest, but I know that they have nothing to do with it. You used them, just like you used everything else...oppportunistic, parasites that you are.

When the Great one was hanged, you said " Ila Jahanam", to hell...Yabba you are from hell yourselves. And I say to you...wa bi'ssa al masseer..illa abad al abeedeen -- from here till eternity may you be cursed, for your hypocrisy.

As for you, you filthy Americans, rejoice in your "surge". It has worked.

You sectarian Shiites and your brothers the filth, Zionist Jews and the dumb assholes called - Americans - You are all one and the same.

And happy and "safe" landings !


As for you, ya "Arabs" -- ya prostitute, brothel, porn, casino gambling...addicts, I am dedicating this one for you, if you have any conscience left. But am not holding my breath...Yalla, am doing it for the "hell" of it.

And get your Angry "Arabs", or any other of your favorite "Arab" bloggers - translate that refrain for you.

OK enough. Now I have to go and open my suitcase, or pack another one...





ah ya arab - kazem el saher

Hi. I'm American. I support *you* more than Israel.

My reasons are a) the belligerence of Israel, and b) who with eyes and a soul cannot root for the oppressed in Palestine?

Many in my country do not understand the situation. My worldview isn't the result of beliefs, its based on facts: Israel has F-16 fighters -- what does Palestine have to defend from extremist settlers who insist on taking away from people who've already had their land taken away. Its a good question, but they never ask it: they keep their heads high.

I hope my country realizes who we should be siding with. Redefine words like "terrorism" to include governments systematically kicking those in the stomach who are already on the ground. Then congratulating themselves for "keeping the world safe". I understand why many hate Americans.

I guess what I mean is we are not all the insects -- blocks of hundreds of millions of individuals that people confidently label as "a certain type of person".

I'm white; I live in Texas, was born in Iowa. Nice to meet you. I don't support Israel. And yet, it has nothing to with religion, and everything to do with how they carry out their foreign policy. It goes against what I know to be right.

I don't know if this will interest you, but it changed my way of thinking for ever...

Layla, sorry to hear about your loss even though it might have been a "materialistic" loss it was a HOME.

They had a survey here a few years ago and found that moving house was equal to a divorce in stress levels, so LOSING a home must be murderous.

That home will stay with you FOREVER, maybe not in a physical sense but certainly in your heart.

Btw, maybe you should write more often when you have just been upset as this article was very powerful.

I'm so sorry and know that it's probably meaningless to you in your rage and your sorrow. What can Americans do to help you? Don't think that we are all the same over here, as you are not all the same in your part of the world.

Personally, I'm more for women's rights to be free of the tyrany of theocratic governments. I think that's one of the saving graces about the US is the clause in our constitution that mandates separation of church and state.

I don't beleive that ANY country should be governed by ANY kind of religious group. There are many here in the US who feel as I do, who didn't want our country to invade your country, that feel vast sorrow at the horror and fear and ugliness that your people have had to endure.

"Eyes watching you"? Really? Could it not be that people of no particular denomination know that yours is a popular, in English no less, Arab blog that has a unique perspective, so they looked for your reaction and published it? There was no veiled "Let's shut it down!" in anything written. However, regardless of who you are, there is no expectation of privacy on the internet. If truly you believe eyes are watching you, the NY Times and probably most of the American government are the least of your problems.



Depressingly, however, you are the average trite Arab. Regardless of the terrible, savage, and unthinkable things exacted on you by either the US, your own people, or Iran, you blame the Jews. A population that makes up less than 1% of the world responsible for all its failings? There is no vast Zionist conspiracy or, if there is, I'm not on the mailing list. If you want to lump those at my synagogue today who prayed for peace, the cessation of war, and freedom for all people with the idiots who bomb you and the fools who started this war, then you should be unaffected when the general public lumps all Muslims into terrorists.



You get what you give. Always.

A 'word' I cannot offer to you..just in my own thoughts about yer situation and Iraq

In the virus-society of America, there is a term that is used in American courts by judges & lawyers. Its called a "repeat offender".

A repeat offender is a criminal that repeatedly breaks the laws and finds him or herself once again before the courts for the same types of behaviors & crimes.

I view the United States of America as a Repeat Offender.

"hey that's quite a high proportion of being through them, don't you think ?"

No.

In fact, considering all the historically unprecedented material and psychological disgregation process your People as a whole united entity was subjected to, I think it is a prodigiously LOW proportion.

If I was you, I would not be disappointed, angry, hateful etc. of the spineless 70% so much as tremendously proud of the incredibly loyal and resilient 30% that's left...

Anonymous said…
Just to avoid unpleasant misunderstandings: "darkness" refers to your pessimistic, "dooming" outlook on things, not to the darkness of ignorance or error.

You are right about the 70% being scum of the earth, and you are right to be disappointed, angry, hateful etc. towards them, and you will be right to rejoice at their rightful execution when God will want it to be.

All I suggested was: don't let the half-empty (or 3/4 empty) glass take too much of your attention and energies, rather concentrate on what you still have left to be proud of, those few or many patient and enduring ordinary Iraqis of all sects and ethnicities who have been resisting this unjust, intolerable disgregation project with words, bullets and blood, but above all with the conservation of their IDEALS in spite of the miserable but transient reality of the war.

Folks I study Islam and I am here to tell you Nation of Islam is not Islam. It is an Occult movement of Malcolm X and Farrakhan. It sprang from the Jehovas witness. about 100 years ago. Give or take. This cult religion is noway affiliated with islam. They worship Elijah Mohammad and Wallace Dodd Fard ( founders). Also known as "Master Fard Muhammad" Not ALLAH!! They think themselves to be the highest deity themselves meaning black humans. Elijah Mohhamad was a racist Nigger. Who hated whites. Fard came from the east supposedley around the Jersey area or Atlanta area possibley in the D,C area. Thats what is speculated both these men were racist Niggers Not Arab Not Muslims BUT RACIST CULT FOLOWING NEGROES> WHOS RELIGION WAS COOKED UP. And sprang FROM THE JEHOVAS WHITNES..The Jehovas witness were to white acting for them and conservative for them and no where near as racist. I challenge each of you to study and read up before you start calling them Muslim and Arabs. Because they are not. They borrowed a few Arabic words and named there religion after an Arabic word. Because they camoflage themselves very well with Islam but they are not Muslim. They are Racist Negroes. Obama is not and Arab and he is not Muslim He is Nation of Islam and there is a huge Difference. Most Knowleged Middleastern Muslims Know that Nation of Islam is not Islam and They know it is and Occult. The ignorant however dont know that it is totaly not affiliated with Islam. And yes I mean IGNORANT PEOPLE. Folks there are alot of misinformed people out there about NOISLAM. and ISLAM.. They here the 2 names and think they are cousins but they are as different as Buddism and Pentacostalism. Obama is not an Arab he is a Nation of Islam Farakahn fowlower and he is Negroe and a Socialist one at that. Every Arab that I know knows that he is a Sude meaning Black I.E Negroe and they KNow he is not Islamic as well as Farrakhan. They know they are an Occult and Beast...

KMWR--The NY Times will most definitely pay you, or, hire you, IF you either become one of their covert operatives, directly, OR, indirectly espouse some particular line,opinion, slant they think is helpful to their cause. So, that's how one gets paid by the NY Times. By the way, speaking of covert operatives, just to let everyone know, there's one posted on globalresearch, right now. David Corn. A long background. Well known for disavowing ANY "conspiracy theorists" surrounding the Kennedy Assassination, 9/11, etc. He writes for the Nation Magazine, et.al. The fake Left circuit--the paid, hired help. So, that's how you can get a career, if you wish. They would be more than happy and delighted to enlist your services, I'm quite sure. You would make a great "front" person for their "causes." So, there you have it. I look forward to seeing your name emblazoned on the front page of the Times. Or, the Nation magazine, or, globalreaseach, or....the list goes on, ad infinitum.

TO PAOLA--I realize they did not publish an article by Layla. They merely reproduced a few blogs. I was being facetious. But, nonetheless, what I said remains true. The NY Times would LOVE to have someone like her on their payroll. She would just need to change her tune A BIT. She would have to assuage her message, tweak it, to conform to the spin they wanted. Then, she would be an ideal representative for them, and, all the others I mentioned. That's how the fake Left functions. And, the "Liberal" Establishment. See Lewis Lapham's wonderful, satirical, entertaining, psuedo-documentary, "The American Ruling Class," to nicely demonstrate what I'm suggesting. I'm also quite sure EYES ARE "monitoring" her blog, my blog and many others and are well aware of what is being said and who is saying it, even if, presumably, they chose something randomly. And, certain blogs are more important than others. So, while I was being facetious in my response, it is also quite true, just like Lapham's film.

Excuse me, but what do you mean by change her "tune a BIT" ?
There are many Iraqi bloggers out there who changed or started out with a different tune " A BIT"...
They say the occupation yes but ---
I have no YES BUT. And that has been solid since the day I started blogging. And there will NEVER BE a YES BUT.
So please stop being facetious, you are insulting me.
Anonymous said…
OK Layla. You choose to reply to the first two (ironic) lines of my comment and pretend to ignore the (serious) rest/core. Even if I clearly stated that I found you right about the "dark side" of things. Just because I dared remind you of the "bright" one, the Resistance. You refuse Hope. You consider it a sort of "heresy". I guess that's what happens when Pain becomes your "religion"... OK. Continue this way. It's a way like any other - to survive. When the Resistance wins (for there is no if) Freedom will be back to all oppressed Iraqis, both those who stood united and those who let themselves drift off to despair and cynicism, like you.

As for me never having witnessed an occupation, that's correct. But believe me, I do strongly advocate one - of my shithole of a Western country, would to God !!!

Be safe.
Anonymous said…
KMWR--It IS Facetious, pure and simple. Just like your response about Spain to whomever posted the bit about The NY Times. You've made my point regarding HOW one "changes one's tune ABIT" regarding the Iraqi bloggers. It's merely a facetious demonstration of HOW such things WORK, here, in the US, and elsewhere, too, about almost all subjects. A pattern. Sometimes, it's subtle. Other times, it's blunt. Real information is twisted, or, comingled with false information. I KNOW you would NEVER "change your tune." That's precisely WHY you will/would NOT be hired. But, this is HOW the process works. The cooptation. This is how and why you, or, I, or whomever, becomes a formidable "enemy" to be "neutralized." "They" cannot even afford to have a FEW COGENT voices out there exposing the lies, "The Emperor Has No Clothes." And, so, GENERALLY, what would happen, IF THEY COULD, is to 1) TRY to "buy" you, coopt you, or, 2) When that is not possible, neutralize you and/or your message. Discredit either or both. Marginalize it. Etc. There are a multitude of ways and means to accomplish this end. They have infinite means at their disposal. So, my facetious remarks were actually a compliment to you. I KNOW/KNEW you would NEVER do just what I'm saying, what "they" would want and HOW IT works. And, your power, in the above regards, therefore, makes you a potent force FROM THEIR POINT OF VIEW. Like Paul Robeson. In covert terms, I think the process would be called, "turning you," or, something like it. But, if you can't be "turned," (from THEIR point of view), then, as I said, you can be drowned out, discredited and so on.

you ask me to give your love to a ghost

you are; EMOTİONALLY, PSYCHOLOGICALLY AND INTELLECTUALLY DEAD!!! whereas he still lives on!!!

Can US invade my country? NO!!
Can it occupy my country? NO!!
you have to come out from that zombie state of yours,cause you are stuck in a dungeon!!! you have created for yourself, and STOP blaming and degrading!!! YOU HAVE TO STOP BEING A GHOST; EMOTIONALLY,PSYCHOLOGICALLY, AND INTELLECTUALLY!!!!!
