It happens everywhere. Therefore I don't plan to stay in a place long. I'll give myself 3 years. But the problem is - a little difficult for you to get any promotion. My race unlike the Chinese are known to be of the envious type. What's worse is that they would even use black magic if the hate to see you succeed. etc... It's bad, this is not what they learn in Islam but what has been brought & pass down from generation to generation by our elders, it's a belief, a tradition which in the end brakes us. So, the advice my mom gives me is to watch my mouth & steps.

Highlander,

Perhaps I am "Jumping to conclusions", but I was disappointed to discover you supporting a blatantly anti-Semitic/fascist post by Twosret:

Perhaps you are more screwed up than I thought.

Sorry to be off-topic.

:) Their is no such thing as race, we are all human, yes i know sound weird coming from LW, but its true.

Oh well jobs suck. I worked at AMC this summer, and I quit as soon as fall semister started, I witnessed everything you wrote about being commited by 16,17 yearolds, its honestly not worth the headache, and let me tell you, ducking and keeping out of the political mix at work, it only works for so long, because eventually someone will see you and try to make a nameout of you, so what I learned was jobs are like prison, find the biggest, baddest dude and beat him down, so people will respect you. as far as the black magic bit is concerned, fight fire with water. Their are tons of verses in the Quran which will protect you from this stuff. Remember all power originates from God, and he is the most high, its not worth getting into the dark arts to get even, most likley people usually end up hurting themselves, unless ofcourse they go through the right channels, in anycase, one should be on the look out for your run in the mill 2 bit witch looking to conjure up a curse.

To All of the Atheist/Agnostic readers, this must sound like something from Harry Potter, but I assure you magic Does EXIST.

We Libyans use a lot of witchcraft against each other Red_Enclave at work and in everyday life. This point should have been mentioned in the note.

Highlander,

Thank you for your e-mail. I am sorry I cannot e-mail you back. I have a silly rule that e-mails are personal letters and as such should not be anonymous. Therefore I only e-mail to people I trust.

Having "calmed down" I reread your comment and see no difference. You are praising a blatently anti-Semitic and fascist post as "interesting". Twosret's post

- used fascist imagery and title
based on der Strummer

- used neo-fascist terminology "de-Christianization and the increasing Judaicization of America" and "3% of the population set the agenda for 97% of the remaining majority?"

- used anti-Semitic lies by claiming that a Rabbi "threatened to sue the airport because the Christmas trees insult his religion"

- at the end of all of the above had the stupidity to call American Jews fascist.

I am really struggling to see how you could possibly miss all that.

You also either intentionally or unintentionally distorted what one commentator said by claiming he "you wished a horrible crime of rape on the owner of the blog".

--------------------------------
Sorry I am not familiar with the blogging etiquette you are referring to in your e-mail. My blogging etiquette is that anyone can raise any subject they feel like. Of course you can delete my comments. I commented just to draw your attention what you are getting yourself into in case you miraculously missed all of the above points in the "interesting" fascist post.

do we really use it against each other or do we just generally think it's used against us, anon?

Highlander said...

Shlemazl,

Thank you for your civil and honest reply to my email.

Below are the comments you refer too ( link being kindly alresdy provided by you):


(1) Hi Twosret , interesting post you have here. I noticed lately how people started to feel ashamed to say 'Merry Christmas'. This is weird to me, because as a Muslim I grew up in a world where I could say loudly 'Merry Christmas' in Europe and in the Arabs countries...

(2)Anonymous 3.28 ( Salamu Aleikum?? ):
I'm not sure peace is what is meant with that message so I was wondering at why did you need to feel the urge to insult ?
By this action you denied yourself the act of being civilised as part of the Western heritage, and so are contradicting yourself/
You are aware that Egyptians have an even older civilization, and the Middle East where the current Arabs come from is a craddle of civilisation eh ?

Moreover, the Judeo-Christian world is also part of the Arab world from which Twosret hails. Judaims and Christianity are not an exclusive property of the West. Remember they were invented in the Middle East .

However, you have not shown the lovely spirit of the concepts you so proudly talk about and which are rightly upheld by the West , because you wished a horrible crime of rape on the owner of the blog, and that's disapointing when one wants to have the moral high ground. Simply insulting Arab 'hordes' and Pakistani traditions ( for rape crime) is not enough. We need to educate ourselves a bit more instead of calling each other ignorant. This is valid even if Twosret was a Muslim. Plus it was out of topic , we would love to hear your opinion about the post - not your grievance about the Ummah. Do you think the post addresses a legitimate issue or not ?


and this is what you said about them :

...I was disappointed to discover you supporting a blatantly anti-Semitic/fascist post by Twosret:

could your statements be libellous ? - I see no praise in the comments.

and could the following be considered a 'threat' ?

Shlemazl, thank you for your advance warning, you are entitled to free speech and I wish you the best.

Highlander said...

Redenclave , I did not know this magic happened in Malaysia as well - wow!

Anonymous amd Smokey , Libyans use good and bad magic :( the business is thriving :((

PH the new job is great ! thank you

1. could your statements be libellous ? - I see no praise in the comments.

No it can't. Twosret's post is about as "interesting" as "The Protocols".

2. And could the following be considered a 'threat' ?...

No it can't. It's just that I had assumed you did not want to associate yourself with blatant fascists and anti-Semites, but I was obviously wrong.

Highlander said...

Shlemazl, it is not an 'either or ' question; we each have our method of comprehension. Whether it is flawed or not this is up to each one of us to judge individually. Time only will tell who was right and who was wrong.

The comments are there, the link to the post is there too.I do not wish nor need to go down the path you are tracing and are attempting to associate me with. From my point of view there is nothing to add anymore, and this 'off-topic' topic is closed.

Thank you for your cooperation.

You know smokey has a real valid point. Alot of it is just paranoia I geuss people in our culture that if anything isnt going their way its witch craft, because someone is always out to get you, which i still belive is generally true. But I think its most likley done through diffrent routes at least here in the west.

Libyan Warrior( The King Of Al-Andalaus) said...

Thriving?

Should I drop out of school and transfer to hogwarts? :)

No the majority of work problems are caused by people who well lets just say, they have shown their un-wanted presence here today.:(((((

But in anycase, this is very intresting, what is "good magic"?

Is their any such thing?
I have always veiwed all magic as well "evil", I could be wrong, I am not a excpert on the subject nor do I plan to be. But a word of advice to all those back home, wouldnt it be nice if we could put down our broomsticks and wonds :) lol. And possibly put our energies in something that would better our society as a whole rather then just ourselves?

witch craft, shaman it happens. Over here it's is not widely used. People seek for such things @ belief but as I've said before it's a waste of money. What they seek is for you to be less productive, hated @ less popular etc.

Highlander said...

Redenclave you know what ? I once found my office chair torn from the back and some kind of sand which had no business being there stuffed in. The next morning it was water sprinkled on my desk ..When I showed it to my colleague she said that was some kind of voodoo, but I lauged it off. Now I'm thinking maybe she was right ?
