Sufi Quote

Every lie is a poison; there are no harmless lies. Only the truth is safe. Only the truth gives me consolation - it is the one unbreakable diamond.


Leo Tolstoy

Sufi Poetry

State of Mind


As we go through life
there are times when we’re at
perfect peace with ourselves.


Pictures, look good on social media
and with success in our belts
make us think
that we’ve life under control.


But, little do we know
when time runs out…
… it always does
we’ll have little to show


for it or about it

now or later

enjoyment is a passing phase

don’t think elsewise

Sufisque Political Opinion

1. I wonder why Republicans and Democrats, like Biden, Speaker Johnson, Ted Cruz, etc are so fond of Israel? Is it the money they provide as donations? But that money belongs to the US, in the first place, that they receive as 'funds'. Can't they not see the history and the truth? Have they forgotten the Holocaust and who did that? I think it's the money angle and the feeling they have that most ordinary folks will not understand the background or just be led away by random religious thoughts that have no basis is historic facts.

2. In reality, moving into Rafah doesn't make sense, even from an Israeli standpoint. What's 25% of Hamas that's in Rafah? When Israel claims that it destroyed 75% of Hamas elsewhere, even if what the lying Israelis claim is true? In real sense, Israel was sleeping when Hamas attacked them on October 7. Wake up. You've already caused enough damage to Gaza and the world has woken up. Your leaders will have an arrest warrant from ICC. Your support in the US is starting to dwindle.

3. It may be hard to imagine today, but in about 100 years, the rulers of the map area showing Israel-Palestine, will be led by the Palestinian people. Yes, it's hard to imagine. But look at history. Truth always wins. It may take time, but it always does.
