That story about Argentinian politicians revoking the citizenship of those who serve in the IDF is false.

Please stop circulating it.

There are at least three ways in which [U.S. foreign] aid to Israel is different from that of any other country. First, since 1982, U.S. aid to Israel has been transferred in one lump sum at the beginning of each fiscal year, which immediately begins to collect interest in U.S. banks. Aid that goes to other countries is disbursed throughout the year in quarterly installments.

Second, Israel is not required to account for specific purchases. Most countries receive aid for very specific purposes and must account for how it is spent. Israel is allowed to place US aid into its general fund, effectively eliminating any distinctions between types of aid. Therefore, U.S. tax-payers are helping to fund an illegal occupation, the expansion of colonial-settlement projects, and gross human rights violations against the Palestinian civilian population.

A third difference is the sheer amount of aid the U.S. gives to Israel, unparalleled in the history of U.S. foreign policy. Israel usually receives roughly one third of the entire foreign aid budget, despite the fact that Israel comprises less than .001 of the world’s population and already has one of the world’s higher per capita incomes. In other words, Israel, a country of approximately 6 million people, is currently receiving more U.S. aid than all of Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean combined when you take out Egypt and Colombia.

Dua on going out from home 

  • Bismillaahi ta wakkaltu ‘allal laahi laa hawla wa la quwwata illaa billaah
  • In the Name of Allah, I have placed my trust in Allah. There’s no power nor might except by Allah.

"The person who reads this Dua while leaving home will be protected from Satan, and everything that is harmful until he returns and all his works will be completed for which he came out of his house." (Tirmidhi)

That’s it! It’s countdown for Israel now; it may take several years but it’s over already.. It just can’t get any lower than this.. Their brutality proves their moral impotence! Zionists are no longer humans, it seems!

And still despite everything going on, I have to say to my fellow Muslims: Happy Eid! Please enjoy your Eid & fix your heart & mind with conviction on a Free Palestine while doing so.. Let it be your goal that Palestinians shall enjoy Ramadan & Eid very soon..

Doctors and medics mourn the loss of their fellow medic, 32 year old Mohammad Matar, who was targeted by Israeli shelling while performing his duty in helping the injured in Khan Yunis, Gaza. 

It’s important to know that many of these medics and doctors have not been paid in months especially with the current Israeli genocide in Gaza. Many of the medics are volunteers and are operating in inhumane conditions, at times working 20 hour shifts to provide immediate care to the overwhelming number of injuries caused by Israel’s constant deliberate and indiscriminate rocket fire on civilians.

They hid in the ambulances trying to retrieve the injured.

They hid themselves in 24 corpses, buried under rubble.

They hid themselves in a young woman in pink household slippers, sprawled on the pavement, taken down while fleeing.

They hid themselves in two brothers, eight and four, lying in the intensive burn care unit in Al-Shifa.

They hid themselves in the little boy whose parts were carried away by his father in a plastic shopping bag.

They hid themselves in the “incomparable chaos of bodies” arriving at Gaza hospitals.

They hid themselves in an elderly woman, lying in a pool of blood on a stone floor.

They hid themselves in a UN school where civilians were sheltering from our shells and bombs.

They also hid themselves In designated ‘safe’ spots, we waited and then we bombed the safe spots and still after all this hiding they’ve been managing to KILL our soldiers!!!

What are we to do, even the worlds getting harder to convince now……?
