أحبها من كل روحي ودمي


مصر التي في خاطري وفي فمي أحبها من كل روحي ودمي
ياليت كل مؤمن بعزها يحبها حبي لها
بني الحمى والوطن
من منكم يحبها مثلي أنا

نحبها من روحنا ونفتديها بالعزيز الأكرم
من عمرنا وجهدنا

عيشوا كراما تحت ظل العلم تحيا لنا عزيزة في الأمم
أحبها لظلها الظليل بين المروج الخضر والنخيل
نباتها ما اينعه مفضضا مذهبا ونيلها ما أبدعه يختال ما بين الربى
بني الحمى والوطن
من منكم يحبها مثلي أنا

نحبها من روحنا ونفتديها بالعزيز الأكرم
من قوتنا ورزقنا

لا تبخلوا بمائها على ظمي واطعموا من خيرها كلّّ فم
أحبها للموقف الجليل من شعبها وجيشها النبيل
دعا إلى حق الحياة لكل من في أرضها
وثار في وجه الطغاة مناديا بحقها
وقال في تاريخه المجيد يا دولة الظلم انمحي وبيدي

بني الحمى والوطن
من منكم يحبها مثلي أنا

نحبها من روحنا ونفتديها بالعزيز الأكرم
من صبرنا وعزمنا

صونوا حماها وانصروا من يحتمي ودافعوا عنها تعش وتسلم
يا مصر يا مهد الرخاء يا منزل الروح الأمين
أنا على عهد الوفاء في نصرة الحق المبين

If metal songs were in Arabic

This ridiculous post was inspired by fellow blogger and tweep @M7madWagih (thanks!) after he encouraged me to post in Arabic. Since Arabic is a diverse language and I’m still not sure which dialect to use because basically my parents decided to get married to someone from a different country and they never figured that kids will have issue with which Arabic dialect to converse with! Oh and also living in a country with a completely different dialect to add more to the dilemma. (I’m pro mixed marriages, don’t get me wrong but it’s a hell of a confusing thing!) Well anyways.. here’s my first Arabic post! 🙂

مع انتشار موسيقى الميتال في العالم العربي و زيادة شريحة محبي هذا النوع من الموسيقى، لا يسعنى سوى أن نقدم لمحبي الميتال هذا البوست كنوع من التقدير لهذا الفن الذي كثر اللغط فيه. فهناك من يكيل الإتهامات لمحبي الموسيقى المعدنية. فتارة يُتهموا بعبادة الشيطان، و تارة يُتهموا بالكفر و العياذ بالله. ولكنني هنا لنفي كل هذه الإتهامات كمحبة لهذا النوع من الموسيقى و مقدرة للكلمات التي تحمل الكثير من المعاني التي ربما لم أجدها في نوع آخر من الموسيقى. و كوننا نحب الموسيقى المعدنية لا ينفى التزامنا بالدين و إيماننا بالله. و حتى لو: مش شغلك طالما محدش بيأذي حد. انت مش وصي على البشرية

.هذه هي ترجمتي لبعض تلك الأغاني و أرجو منكم مساعدتي في إصلاح الترجمة في حال تضاربت المعاني مع الكلمات الأصلية

لنأخذ مثلاً أغنية الفرسان الأربعة (The four horsemen) لفرقة معدنيا (Metallica)

عبر أنفاس الفارس الأخير، تهب الرياح

أنصتوا جيداَ

إقتربت أحصنتهم من باب دارك

!أحمي زوجتك و أطفالك الآن

حان وقت القتال

!لديك زوار

الفرسان الأربعة على مقربة

يمتطون أحصنتهم

جاؤوا ليقضوا عليك

في ظلمة الليل

إمض مع الفرسان الأربعة أو اختر مصيرك و موتك

.هذه الأغنية تتحدث عن نبؤة الفرسان الأربعة في سفر الرؤيا وهم تجسيد لقوى الظلام التي ستحل خلال نهاية العالم

:الفرسان الأربعة طبقاُ لسفر الرؤيا هم

الحصان الأبيض و الذي يمثل اما الغزو العسكري او في جانبه المشرق: عودة المسيح

الحصان الأحمر (او الناري) و فارسه يحمل سيف. يرمز هذا الفارس الى الحرب الأهلية كون اللون الأحمر يرمز للدم و القتل

الحصان الأسود و يرمز للمجاعات و يحمل فارسه ميزان يرمز الى تأثر المحاصيل الزراعية بالمجاعات خاصة غلاء أسعار السلع اليومية

الحصان الشاحب و يرمز الى الموت

:فلنأخذ أغنية أخرى على سبيل المثال و ليس الحصر

أغنية الأرض Territry لفرقة سبلتورا Sepultura

رجل مجهول

يتحدث إلى العالم

يستغل ثقتكم

فخاً في كل العالم

الحرب من أجل الأرض

الحرب من أجل الأرض

التحكم في خيارتكم

من خلال الدعاية الزائفة

معلومات مغلوطة و فقيرة

للتحكم بغضبك

الحرب من أجل الأرض

الحرب من أجل الأرض

خطاب الطغاة

 تفجر معاني حياتك

إحكم لتقتل الرغبة

خطاب الأوغاد الإغبياء

سنوات من القتال

لأعلم ابني

 الإيمان في هذا الرجل

إنسان عنصري

نعيش على أراضٍ عنصرية

العار والندم

على عِزة كنا نمتلكها

هذه الأغنية هي من أقوى أغاني سبلتورا و قد حازت على جائزة اختيار المشاهد الدولية لأفضل فيديو (​​البرازيل). تم تصوير الأغنية في القدس المحتلة و يقال ان الفرقة ارادت  ان تعبر عن دعمها للقضية الفلسطينية حيث يظهر في الفيديو العديد من المقاطع التي تحتوي على عبارات على الجدران داعمة لفلسطين المحتلة

:هناك العديد من الأغاني المعدنية التي تتحدث عن العديد من القيم التي نفتقدها في مجتمعاتنا المتحضرة بالرغم من وجود و تعدد طرق العيش السلمي

 انهض لسبلتورا: تتحدث عن القتل بإسم الدين الرابط

الحرب الكيميائية لفرقة القاتل: تتحدث عن مشاهد الدمار بسبب إستخدام الأسلحى الكيميائية في الحروب الرابط

 تصدأ في سلام.. بولاريس لفرقة الموتميغا: تتحدث عن تجربة الصاروخ النووي بولاريس.. نعم، صاروخ نووي الرابط

 مسودة لفرقة معدنيا: تتحدث عن الدمار الذي أصاب البيئة و الكرة الأرضية الرابط

و العديد من ذلك

الحكمة هنا -بالإضافة الى كتابتي باللغة العربية- هي ان الموسيقى المعدنية هي بالنسبة لي أكثر من مجرد صرخات و قرع طبول قد لا يستسيغه البعض و لكنها حقاً من أكثر انواع الموسيقى حملاً للمعاني السامية

و أخيراً.. استمتعوا بأغنيتي المفضلة سيد الدمى لمعدنيا

A message from Gramaha to the people of Earth

The transmission occurred on 26 Nov 77 at 5:12 p.m. when a strange unknown voice overrode, took over, or super-modulated the TV signals from five transmitters that were monitored by the Independent Broadcasting Authority (IBA) in England. IBA did not detect the intrusion. The 5:30 minute message overrode a scheduled newscast read by Ivor Mills on Southern ITV, England.

The voice spoke slowly and deliberately, with a strange inward authority, calm, serene, never scolding. It said:

For many years now you have seen us as lights in the skies. We speak to you now in peace and wisdom as we have done to your brothers and sisters all over this, your planet earth. We come to warn you of the destiny of your race and your worlds so that you may communicate to your fellow beings the course you must take to avoid the disasters which threaten your worlds and the beings on our worlds around you.

This is in order that you may share in the great awakening, as the planet passes into the New Age of Aquarius. The new age can be a time of great peace and evolution for your race, but only if your rulers are made aware of the evil forces that can overshadow their judgments.

Be still now and listen, for your chance may not come again. For many years your scientists, governments and generals have not heeded our warnings; they have continued to experiment with the evil forces of what you call nuclear energy. Atomic bombs can destroy the earth and the beings of your sister worlds, in a moment.

The wastes from atomic power systems will poison your planet for many thousands of your years to come. We, who have followed the path of evolution for far longer than you, have long since realized this — that atomic energy is always directed against life. It has no peaceful application. Its use, and research into its use, must be ceased at once, or you all risk destruction. All weapons of evil must be removed.

The time of conflict is now past and the race of which you are a part may proceed to the highest planes of evolution if you show yourselves worthy to do this.

You have but a short time to learn to live together in peace and goodwill. Small groups all over the planet are learning this, and exist to pass on the light of the dawning new age to you all. You are free to accept or reject their teachings, but only those who learn to live in peace will pass to the higher realms of spiritual evolution.

Hear now the voice of Gramaha, the representative of the Asta Galactic Command speaking to you. Be aware also that there are many false prophets and guides operating on your world. They will suck your energy from you — the energy you call money and will put it to evil ends giving you worthless dross in return.

Your inner divine self will protect you from this. You must learn to be sensitive to the voice within, that can tell you what is truth, and what is confusion, chaos and untruth. Learn to listen to the voice of truth which is within you, and you will lead yourselves on to the path of evolution.


This is our message to you our dear friends. We have watched you growing for many years as you too have watched our lights in your skies. You know that we are here, and that there are more beings on and around your earth than your scientists admit. We are deeply concerned about you and your path towards the light, and will do all we can to help you.
Have no fears, seek only to know yourselves and live in harmony with the ways of your planet earth.

We of the Asta Galactic Command thank you for your attention. We are now leaving the planes of your existence.

May you be blessed by the supreme love and truth of the Cosmos.

Killing in the name of God – The “Religions are like farts.” sequel

If you haven’t read Religions are like farts, I urge you to do so to understand the reason why I am writing this post.

I was planning to write this at my own convenience but what happened today in a small village in Giza, Egypt called Abu Muslam was my sign to start typing ASAP.

As I was going through my twitter feed, I noticed some disturbing tweets coming from a young man named Hazem (Twitter account @7azem122) regarding some incident in Abu Muslam.

According to Hazem, the villagers set fire on some houses in and that there were casualties. Reading those tweets was something I was used to since things are quite unstable in Egypt and every other day we hear about crazy and unfortunate incidents taking place.

But the story doesn’t end. The houses belonged to one man named Hassan Shehata and several others. Shehata and several other men were beaten up and stabbed then dragged around the village by around 3000 men while most of them cheered and a very few tried to prevent this tragedy by either asking others to stop or even shielding some of those who were attacked. The security forces were even there watching this massacre unfold without even shooting a bullet in the air to separate the crowd or perhaps one of those tear gas canisters they so willingly used during the many protests throughout the past 2 and a half years.

They just waited for those hooligans to finish their business with the victims, enjoy their little victory dance (more like dragging the body while chanting Allahu Akbar!) and then drop those bodies by their vehicles to later be stacked like trash.

The reason why this happened? Those men were Shiites.

Let’s go back to the times when religion was first tainted by politics. When the whole argument about “who deserves to lead the Muslim nation” after the departure of prophet Mohammed sparked what seems to be the main reason why Muslims don’t mind blowing up each other in the name of religion nowadays. They all agree on the essence of Islam but disagree on who should have lead them after that.

Brilliant.

Yup.

As the hate and sectarian divide grew between Sunnis and Shiites throughout the years, millions were brought up to believe that “the other” deserves to go to hell for not choosing their way. Insults were thrown back and forth. Many other things that I choose not to include in my post as my purpose is not to discuss those views in particular rather than the fact that it is truly a big shame to see such division and such hatred between people who are eventually called Muslim.

But let’s not forget that behind all the ignorance are more ignorant and highly influential individuals. Many of the so-called “Sheikhs” and “Imams” in Egypt are willing to label anyone “infidel” for going against the regime. Protesters are being called infidels. Reporters are also called infidels for expressing their opinions which are clearly in no favor to the ruling party. Women are regarded as whores and infidels if they decide to voice out their concerns regarding sexual harassment, rape or even female circumcision. It is somehow “Halal” to kill those who “stand in the path of Islam and and an Islamic nation”.

It’s no wonder when the Muslim Brotherhood and most “Islamic” political parties use those sheikhs to impose their political agendas by influencing the poor and naive masses. Shiites would automatically be infidel #1 on the list of those to be killed even though President Morsi made it clear that he is willing to sell his mother to the devil for the MB. Morsi who a couple of weeks back announced he’s cutting ties with the Syrian regime in an attempt to polish his tarnished and almost non existing popularity check here, ironically forgot that a few months back, he actually got down and funky with Assad’s BFF click for steamy photo!

The Sheikhs were always there to lead by example. On many occasions, they would be around quoting out of context verses of Quraan, asking people to denounce the infidels as well as threaten to abolish whoever stands in the way. National TV was now a podium to men with shaggy beards and poor communication skills calling the opposition infidels, asking people to take action against them as well as sucking up to the president and the rest of the “Islamists”. They are shameless and disgusting yet never too shy to lie or even say complete nonsense on national TV. They had their fans and it was sad but no one could do anything about it.

Those Sheikhs tried the “Christian VS Muslim” game to keep the people distracted but a country of old history and solid ties between its people crushed all attempts. Well, not all. Some people fell for it but the majority of the people stood against it and sooner than later, it wasn’t going to work anymore. The Copts were not a minority as they -the “Islamists”- tried to insist and the Muslims (moderate, normal, HUMAN ones) made it pretty clear that there will be no such rubbish in 25Jan-Egypt. This trick was once used by the Mubarak regime on new years eve of 2011 when they decided to play the “religion” card to maintain some control over the exploding situation since the neighbors in Tunisia were working on their freedom. (Check here). As the anger and resentment towards Morsi’s failure to comply to what this position demands grew bigger and bigger, the regime will no doubt resort to any trick to distract people from the 30th of June. Nonetheless, those attempts are clear enough and the extremists are being shunned by everyone and they all thought they lived happily ever after until today.

The dirty tricks are on a whole new level. They managed to shock a whole nation when they turned a somewhat quiet village into a scene from a horror movie. The men were attacked for stating their beliefs which obviously insulted some people. 3000 of them.

In a normal situation, away from the killing and the dragging, I would have included this man in the list of people I’d verbally bash but since this guy got more than a bashing, I will refrain from doing so. I only support verbal bashing and killing someone for saying something you might not agree with is NOT OK.

The extremists stepped their game up by directing the spotlight on the Shiites of Egypt instead of the Copts. Considered a minority to a majority of Sunnis, it was about time. Last month, the hate speech towards Shiites started to spread. Posters and signs in villages, streets and even malls stating “Shiites are infidels” were everywhere. There was no shame in it since they made it very clear to add their logos.

Together against Shiites
They insult Sahaba
They alter the Quraan
They kill Sunnis
Please note Al Nour party’s logo (an ultra-conservative Islamist political party)

So-called sheikhs were also in whether on national TV or even in the presence of a president who is supposedly from the people and for the people. The campaigns by the MBs & Salafists were “in the name of” supporting Syria.

The brilliant Bassem Youssif was somehow looking into the future when he pointed out the obvious threats of such acts which took place right in front of the president of Egypt on this week’s episode of El Bernameg.

I wish there were English subtitles but for those of you who don’t understand Arabic, it is pretty apparent that all the filth was being said in the presence of a man in charge of 80+ million individuals with different religious beliefs. (Skip to minute 17).

If you decide to search youtube for videos, there is an abundance of hate filled videos of old and bitter men in beards and turbans (or not) yelling at infidel Shiites/Sunnis. It’s just pathetic.

There were also reports that groups of men roamed around some villages telling people through speakers to announce Jihad on Shiites and that it’s time to get them out and clean the country once and for all.

And there was it. The attack and murder of 4 Shiites in Abu Muslam. The videos I’ve seen are so graphic, it left my stomach in knots. The fact that 3000 men just stood there watching and cheering others beating helpless men to death was beyond barbaric. The fact that anyone justifies this shameless act just for the fact that those men have different beliefs or even insult the Sahaba is even more sickening.

And believe me, the responses on Twitter were more sickening. Some actually went to the extent of congratulating the Umma on that achievement and wishing the rest would join the victims. I wonder how Muslims denounce Islamophobia while THAT is what they present to the world. And the funny thing is that each “Muslim” separately will proudly announce that Islam taught them how to respect all religions. Well, how about respecting your OWN religion first!?

As far as I know, prophet Mohammed and the Sahaba endured far worse than a couple of bad words and they managed to deliver their divine message very well. No one was instructed to kill someone even when things like throwing stool and trash on the prophet was a daily routine that the prophet learned to tolerate to deliver his message in peace. The Quraan never stated that it’s OK to kill people for having different beliefs. The Quraan was also very clear about the fact that two Muslims fighting each other would go to hell regardless of the reason. The fact that Islam has been tainted by all those extremists is the reason why I wrote this post.

Why is it that we must -as human beings- have someone dictate what’s right and wrong and follow it blindly? When someone claims to be a scholar of Islam and starts spreading hate and ignorance that only reflect his upbringing and lack of knowledge and tolerance towards anything defined as the other whether it was a different religious belief, gender, race or even political views. It is pretty evident that people still don’t understand the purpose of religion since some clearly miss out on the fact that we are “allegedly” superior beings and that piece of shit on our shoulders covered with hair (if you’re lucky enough) and other vital organs also harbors a tool that separates us from animals. It’s called a BRAIN. And yes, you need to use it to be qualified as a superior being.

You don’t need someone to point out that someone else insulting your mother is not enough reason to kill them although it might be considered a major no-no. What happened to turning the other cheek? Insulting any religious figure is a no-no but you don’t necessarily have to kill people for it. Why don’t Muslims get offended when Jesus is mocked in cartoons, movies and youtube videos? Where is it mentioned in any holy book that it’s OK to kill in the name of God? And if religion was supposed to be your guide through life, why do you choose a dark and bloody path to go to heaven? God gave you many ways, choose the nice and pleasant one for a change?

How people choose to portray their faith in God and their means to heaven are so twisted.

And those who choose to look the other way just because “well, their leaders provoke such actions and they’re also murdering our people somewhere else!” have a special place awaiting..

And to those who don’t even bother:

The darkest places in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis. – Dante Alighieri

This.. is a moral crisis.

***DISCLAIMER: This post is neither in favor of Shiites, nor Sunnis. I am HUMAN. Something you should consider being if you choose to misinterpret the above. If you favor butthurt over common sense, SELF EDUCATE!

PS: Stay tuned for part three. 😉

My “HappyList”

Happiness is relative. At times like this, I can’t really tell if it is even possible to tell if the glass is half full since it’s full of crap. This world is full of crap smothering all those happy moments. I still believe in unicorns, though.

I was getting my daily dose of Youtube a couple of days ago and I came across a wonderful phenomenon called Ze Frank. If you are still not familiar with Ze, it is about time you do because Ze.. Ze is that one thing in life that you really do not want to miss.

One of his many marvelous videos was “What’s on Your HappyList?”  Watch it here. (YOU MUST!)

So, without further ado; here is my HappyList:

1- Everyone knows how much I just LOVE the Felidae family.. AKA Felines! But let me tell you that I am a sucker for those:

Snuggling with a face like this.. I love kissing them tiny noses :)

Kitty paws are the second best part of a kitty.. I just LOVE those little muffins :)

Himalayan kittes  (or basically any kitty with an angry face)

And Lil Bub.. she's just so magical.

And Lil Bub.. she’s just so magical.

2- Discovering a new song, artist, movie, video or even a simple read that bursts with ingenuity or pure awesomeness. I get high on these moments. My latest discovery was Jenna Marbles. I’m aware that this girl is beyond famous and it’s probably a bit too late to “discover” Jenna’s unique sense of humor but I’m glad that I worked my way through and got to finally discover this wonderful being. I spent 3 days watching ALL her videos.. that’s how good she is! She’s crude, funny, and straight to the point. Here’s one of the many reasons I love Jenna Marbles (aside from Kermit and Mr. Marbles, of course!)

And she swears! YAY! 😀

3- Hearing English in the following accents: British, Irish, Scottish, French, Italian, Spanish, Australian and a little bit of Boston, Brooklyn and South Carolina!

4- Babies!! Especially those:

21- Winning an argument. I usually do.. well, at least if you shut up, I am content. 😀

22- Orange blossom water. They say if you drink a little every day, it can cure a broken heart. 🙂

23- Spotting someone I haven’t met in a LOOOOOONG time. It brings back good memories.. sometimes.. but I usually don’t go and say hi because I am lousy at maintaining any relationship nowadays. But I do appreciate the walk down memory lane.

24- Waking up and going to sleep before everyone else.

25- Sleeping through a stormy day. Nothing beats hiding under your cover with those drops of rain on your window and the occasional thunder bursts.

26- A blackout. While most people hate blackouts, I enjoy the peaceful moments of no technology, no electricity and simple life. That of course if there is a bit of light coming through from the street or the moon at least. I hate total darkness!

Ghost towns amuse me..
