My Heart Bleeds for Gaza :'(

For three long weeks now, Israel has been bombarding Gaza and killing innocent people. Men, women, children and the elderly. the death toll has exceeded 1200 and the injured is numbered more than 5000.
its a shame for the whole world, especially the Muslim countries to be watching this brutality and not doing (or being not able to do) any thing to stop it.
the western media is so biased in this conflict, they don't want their public to see what we in the middle east see.
there are horrible images coming out from Gaza. Children being sliced into pieces, mothers carrying whats left of their children's bodies, grown-up men crying over their sons and daughters being killed, and so on.

here is an image i found in Flickr which shows the last moment of a mother still trying to calm her child at the moment of her death. imagine any of you in the child's position. What would your feelings be?

the boy lost his father to an Israeli attack before, now he had to say goodbye to his mother too.

It was by accident that I saw your blog. One word, Incredible. I know exactly what you mean, the world is truly seeing inhumane acts and dont even know the start of how it feels to be part of such misery.

My name is Anna and I would really appreciate if you could email me on :
I work for an international german events company and my client is Nokia. We are at the moments organising a porject called Connected Fusion. It is introducing the nokia vine ( new version of sports tracker) On behalf of nokia, it would be our greatest pleasures to have you on board on this activation. We would give you a N96 device and you would simply upload information on the platform/ upload content that would attract the public/journeys If you get back to me, i could possibly call you and we can discuss further. Again, I hope i hear from you very soon.

Assalaam alaikum,
We need more muslim bloggers like you with the the right information.

The information available at our fingertips is a lot,but not all of it is right or good for us.

Our ummah is in peril because we are leaving aside religious knowledge for the so called modern world.What we have in Islam is for all times for all situations,it is the deen for everyone everywhere.
Some believe that science and knowledge of our world is a bad thing(or forbidden in Islam) when in fact Allah commands us to seek knowledge of our natural world for He has given similitude's from every living thing.

The condition our ummah is in, such a sad thing.We are fighting amongst ourselves and debating about things we do not know.This is how our enemy the shaitan wins.
Losing does not necessarily mean giving up our religion,but we are deviating away from all that is right and all that is good for us in this world and the next.

Losing is serving up our own brothers and sisters to the enemy.
Isn't that what we are doing?
We are shocked that so many babies and women are being killed for no apparent reason other than they are living their lives in their own country.We cry a few tears when we see the news..
Right after that we walk out into the street wearing what our enemies cultures prescribes,we do not pray or make dua for the suffering muslims in the world....

It is wonderful to have you start blogging.Along with your amazing photographs (mashaAllah) and messages accompanying them,it has the chance to grab attention and make people think.

"Terrorist?" from your Flickr photos is just one example of what I mean-right message with the right photo.

May Allah keep you safe,bless you in all your future endeavors and grant you peace for all eternity.

Wa alaikum salaam :)
