It is strange how things start… strange how very small things and incident could make a huge change.

This is the story of my best friend in the army…

At the beginning he was just another man, all I knew about him was the name.
On one of the terrible tiring days, full with sun, actions, and training he fell so ill that he was almost totally unable to walk to drink water or get himself anything

At that time I hardly knew him... I told him I will see what I could do, I ran to my room and got him a bottle of water, and I asked a friend to get us two small bottles of juice. That was all.

The next day when he came to thank me, we had long conversation, we started it at that day but it didn’t end yet… we talk all the time during training, during breaks, during vacations, our friends’ say we never shut up :)

Ramy has been my friend since then, we helped each other to hold in many hard situations and I am glad I have such friends with me, that is the best thing I could get out of the current experience

Photo crisis

Few days ago I-like many others- received a mail containing horrible photos for the result of Israeli bombing over Lebanon, like all others I was totally shocked yet the above photo draw the attention of the world while I didn't notice it much

as you can see the photo is for Israeli kids drawing and writing things over the shells, some of them were messages to Lebanese people and Nasrallah and hizb allah party!!

As you can imagine at once the two parts started to move, the Arabian part started to spread the disgusting photo while the Israeli side on some blogs gave some "weak" explanation for it

"On the day that photo was taken, the girls had emerged from the underground bomb shelters for the first time in five days. A new army unit had just arrived in the town and was preparing to shell the area across the border. The unit attracted the attention of twelve photojournalists - Israeli and foreign." said by Israeli blogger

Just one comment on this part... at least they have bomb shelters to hide... the 170 kids who died in Lebanon didn't have something like that i believe...

"Apparently one or some of the parents wrote messages in Hebrew and English on the tank shells to Nasrallah.”To Nasrallah with love," they wrote to the man whose name was for them a devilish image on television - the man who mockingly told Israelis, via speeches that were broadcast on Al Manar and Israeli television that Hezbollah was preparing to launch even more missiles at them. That he was happy they were suffering." said by the Israeli blogger

And I want to ask: “to teach hatred to a kid do you have to make him write the hate message personally? Isn’t it enough to let him see that sight and make him even sign this black message and draw a flag with it?"

Maybe they didn't mean to do so but don't you agree that this photo will stay in the innocent eyes of the kids attached to the Arabs?

"So, perhaps the parents were not wise when they encouraged their children to doodle on the tank shells. They were letting off a little steam after being cooped up - afraid, angry and isolated - for days." said the Israeli blogger

I totally agree... now let's consider the poor palestinian who lived all his life like this... in the danger of being killed, with shells in the air all the time, poor, hungry and afraid... how do you expect him to react then if you see this reaction on 5 days of "partial terror in air conditioned shelters" reasonable, how could be the reaction of the palestinians?

"I wonder how those people would feel if Israelis were to look at a photo of a Palestinian child wearing a mock suicide belt in a Hamas demonstration and conclude that all Palestinians - nay, all Arabs - are evil. " by the Israeli blogger

I believe I already answered this part, I didn't say they are angels... they teach their kids to hate too...

On another different topic that supports this topic, on every incident they claim that the Arabs want to destroy Israel... how the hell can us while you are much far stronger than all Arabs together!! Such words only come from sick minds that have one equation in their minds, either us or them!!

Stop targeting civilians... from both sides

Sick minds, we are all humans... war is not a game because when you die, you can't simply start a new game

the lost feeling

you come back with a milion thing to do, a milion buddy to meet and thousands of plans

your mind keeps jumping from this to that, you keep your eyes on the watch and feel time moving very fast...

at the end you discover that all the few things you could catch from your plans were meaningless and without real feeling, you spoiled them by paying much attention to the moving time... didn't give them what you should to really have them

that is what happened to me up to now, i need to focus on something and drop many others or else, i will loose everything

Parents act

For the second time I meet the same problem, with a different friend this time!!

Parents all the time feel like they own us, yes sometimes they feel like we are idiots and they are responsible for handling everything even if this will hurt us or corrupt the way of life we want to have

The story was the same but with a harder way, his mother got him an apartment to get married in but at the first problem she said this is her money and she wants to take it back!!

This time his mother did it with him while he was away in the army, the world turned black in his eyes, what will he do or say to his fiancée, this is crazy!!

I couldn’t help this friend much, I was feeling very sorry for him and I thanked my self because I refused similar offers from my family many times, when I am ready to go I will go on my own alone.

Why could a mother do such a thing to her son while he is away from her in the desert!!!
