Syrian Sana still off-line, but the Swedish Ajax Sana is on-line

August 19, 2012

 
For quite a few months now, the Syrian News website Sana has experienced attacks which leave the website unavailable most of the time. Luckily there is a way around it by not using the original www.sana.sy but by using its IP-address, which is: http://208.43.232.81/. There are backups to be found at (1).

For me the name Sana stands for the Syrian Arab News Agency, but today I discovered that there is a Swedish football player who has started to play for the Amsterdam team of Ajax, in the beginning of the 2012-2013 season. This guy called Tobias Sana is 23-years old and was bought by Ajax from IFK Götenborg.

 
Would Tobias know that his surname is the name of the official news agency in Syria? I wonder. Perhaps I should go and tell him? I at least tweeted this fabulous news to @AFCAjax

Palestinians from Damascus miraculously return rockets from Al-Yarmouk back to the FSA-gangs

August 3, 2012
On August 3, 2012 something miraculous happened in the city of Damascus. First there was this bombing by the FSA-gangs at the Al-Yarmouk Palestinian Refugee district, killing 21 people. When these FSA-war lords started their attack on Damascus half way july 2012, they had hoped that the Palestinians in Damascus would have supported them in their fight against the government.

 
But the Palestinians refused. They were loyal to the government who had supported them for decades after their expulsio...

Salah Edin, the Dutch-Morrocan Rapper and the district in South Aleppo

July 28, 2012

I have been quite occupied with the developments in the aggression on the Syrian people by the FSA-gangs lately. Near the end of July 2012 the gangs decided to go for the 'Battle of Aleppo' and soon various quarters/districts of this ancient Syrian city were mentioned in the news reports (6).

Since I always like to add a few new words to my vocabulary and my energetic association data base, I picked up one of the quarters in Aleppo with the name Salah ad-Din, that is spelled in various ways, l...

Juba, Juba, Huba, Hop, hop Hop - South Sudan and Dennie Christian

April 20, 2012

Because of the escalation of the situation between South Sudan and Sudan in april 2012, I got to know that the president of South-Sudan, Salva Kiir (1) has said to Ban Ki-Moon: “I am not a slave to fulfill your orders!” 

I was aware that the capital of Sudan is Khartoum, but I didn't know that the capital of the newest country in the world, is called 'Juba'. This reminded me strongly of a famous song in the Netherlands by someone with a German background, namely Dennie Christian, back in 1...

Could Collective Intention Disrupt the US Empire Drones from Killing People?

December 8, 2011

On December 4, 2011 Iran downed a surveillance drone (a US RQ 170) that the US Empire used to secretly spy in the air space of Iran. Imagine how the Empire would respond if Iran or perhaps even Cuba or Venezuela used their drones to fly in the air space of the US.

What is interesting that it seems that the Iranians have this drone in a state that is nearly intact. On december 8 they launched a video in which they displayed the 'sentinel' (1), and I can't help but chuckle at the possibility tha...

Loving, Kindness, Turkey's dependence on Russia and Iran, and Mehmanparast

December 3, 2011

The main objectives of this site are to stimulate my creativity and my ability to feed my long term memory (1,2). Due to the age of internet our short-term memory is making overtime, but it seems that less and less of it reaches our long term memory, simply because of the enormous amount of information. It seems to be hard for the mind to decide what is actually worthwhile to store in the long term memory.

In order to prevent the moment that I can only have memories and reflections, while sear...

How to Creatively Stop the Banks from Ruling the World?

December 1, 2011

One the reasons for having starting this particular blog was to stimulate my creative impulses. In order to battle the threat of turning into a information consuming moron, it was time to play with the information by adding my own personal touch. Instead of investing all my energy in keeping up with the news and everything that is going on in this world, I wanted to take pieces of this information within me, put it next to my heart and let my creative body juggle with in order to develop some...

Prince Nayef of the Drone Empire of Kali

November 5, 2011

On november 2, 2011 Pepe Escobar wrote another excellent article on international politics (1). This time it featured the 'gerontocracy' of Saudi Arabia and its close ties to the American Drone Empire. In that particular article the young Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia plays the lead-role. This 78-year old heir to the non-democratic throne of King Abdullah (87 years old) has been the man who has led the Interior Security Ministry from 1975 until this very day.

This Prince Nayef is very popul...

From the DEA to the Immune System Boosting DHEA and Heart Coherence

October 18, 2011

I love the articles by the Asia Online journalist Pepe Escobar (1, picture) and I intend to read everything that he has written, at least what he has written on-line. I have posted a number of interviews of Escobar at my youtube-channel WolkenZwemmer (2) in which he gives his perspective on international politics.

In an article called 'The Occupy Iran Fast and Furious Plot (extended)'(3) he presents a tongue-in-cheek account of the incredible incredulousness of the allegations that Iran wou...

Moors and Feeding the Long Term Memory

October 6, 2011

This morning I brought my daughter to school and in the class I saw one of her classmates holding a book on the Moors. In an attempt to stimulate this little boy to read that book I told him about their North-African descent and that they had been to Spain somewhere long ago.

This small event made my mind jump to the tendency of modern day people to just 'google' for just about anything, sometimes even added with the comment: "Why would I memorize anything, if I only know where to find it, tha...
