Title:Contemplation and Hope



Everyday I meditate and look to the sea, I never see anything except the waves, which sometimes slow down and sometimes accelerate to strike the coast, and then they quiet and dormant. But they are stubborn to sweep and push the dry land. After that I hear the water's roar, its resource is the…

هل الجزيرة قناة مشبوهة؟ رد على مقال جلال الحبيب

هل الجزيرة قناة مشبوهة؟ رد على مقال جلال الحبيب

رغم أنه مقال هزيل من حيث كونه مليء بالتناقضات والمغالطات ولا يستحق الرد عليه فإننا سنرد عليه إكراما لقناة الجزيرة قناة الوعي العربي . حيث بدا الكاتب منذ بداية المقال يتناقض مع نفسه ويكشف خلفيته الاقصائية لحد يدفعنا للاعتقاد أن هذا المقال هو مجرد مقال تحريضي مدفوع الأجر لتشويه سمعة الجزيرة رغم أن هذه المحاولة كمن يحرث في البحر لأن ما يزعمه الكاتب في آخر المقال أن الوعي العربي لم تعد تنطلي عليه إدعاءات الجزيرة الموضوعية هو محض هراء ذلك أن اليوم… Continue

سلطان الدفان

سلطان الدفان :





في جنوب بغداد وعلى استدارة احد اذرع نهر دجله كانت تقع قريتنا قبل خمسين عاما, النهر مترع بالماء العذب

والارض تجود بالخيرات , في تلك الايام كانت الطبيعة كريمة بعطائها , وكان الانسان قانع بما يحصل علبه

كانت الايام تمر بسلاسه , لولا الامراض التي كانت تفتك بنا ,ولولا ( سلطان الدفان ) لكانت تلك الايام وكأنها الاحلام.

بين فينة واخرى تعصف بقريتنا عواصف الموت , تكتسح من اهل… Continue
