7 dangerous myths about women who wear hijabs

The hijab is not the most important part of being a Muslim woman, but it is certainly the most visible.

The pro-Israel bias of the BBC and other Western media outlets will have you believe that the level of destruction in Gaza is in Israel and the relative calm in Israel is Gaza.

The death toll in Gaza has now reached 40 - overwhelmingly civilian, including children -  as Israel intensified its latest bombardment of the densely populated Gaza Strip. 

Western media continues to treat the words of the Israeli government as gospel - that they’re only “targeting Hamas”. It’s one of the biggest lies ever told. Ex-Israeli soldiers admitted being ordered to “cleanse Gaza” in the past. Nothing has changed.

There are literally thousands of instances where the Israeli military have intentionally killed Palestinian civilians. Take for example mother and daughter Majda and Rayah Abu Hajaj who were shot by an Israeli soldier as they were waving white flags. (He was ordered to serve… 45 days.)

Never forget that Israel is targeting Palestinian civilians and always has done. They’re not collateral damage - they are the intended targets.

I hate that feeling when you’re not necessarily sad, but you just feel really empty and every little thing gets to you and everyone that talks to you makes you angry and you want to punch everyone in the face

Sir Nicholas Winton is a humanitarian who organized a rescue operation that saved the lives of 669 Jewish Czechoslovakia children from Nazi death camps, and brought them to the safety of Great Britain between the years 1938-1939.

After the war, his efforts remained unknown. But in 1988, Winton’s wife Grete found the scrapbook from 1939 with the complete list of children’s names and photos. Sir Nicholas Winton is sitting in an audience of Jewish Czechoslovakian people who he saved 50 years before.

how game of thrones should end

#khal drogo just #descends from the heavens #on a flaming stallion #punches everyone in the face #and sits his fine dothraki ass down on the iron throne #until daenerys shows up #then he stands #dusts the seat off a bit #and steps aside for his khalessi
