  3. Well not sure how it happens in other Muslim countries but every ramadan, they broadcast those new shows on Moroccan TV. So you have all those ramadan-special sitcoms and other shows that pop up that are broadcast right after iftar.  And those shows are always so freaking stupid… Lmao.  Moroccan TV is stupid all the rest of the year ofc, but the Ramadan period takes the cake. 

Anyway, it’s just one way to make use of the month of Ramadan in a commercial way. etc. :/ Well not sure how it happens in other Muslim countries but every ramadan, they broadcast those new shows on Moroccan TV.

  4. merizindaghi for real!! I am pretty sure that’s their goal, offering new “entertainment” hundred times sillier than the last one. I am always so embarrassed when I watch Moroccan channels. It is sad bcz I am pretty sure we do have creative minds but you can’t prosper in such a political environment.

  5. I think Moroccan TV is playing a “which show will be the most insulting to ppl living in rural areas” game.

  6. One nice thing I have noticed though is that French medias are step by step speaking about the JDL, mentioning their responsibility in what happened in some pro-Palestine protests. A French deputy made a petition for outlawing the JDL and received all the signatures necessary for it. Not that I believe very much in petitions but there is a symbolic shift in the mainstream circles. Hopefully, we’ll see it banned soon.

  7. Not what many medias are mentioning when it comes to what happened in Sarcelles is that two protests were happening that day. A pro-Palestinian one and a pro-Israeli one (mostly organized by the JDL). Guess which one French authorities banned? The pro-Palestinian one.

    They take the most pitiful excuses to ban them and then blatantly lie about it. One constant thing with pro-Israeli protests in France are their blatant anti-Arab racism (which they don’t even try to hide before the police). All pro-Israel protests have had racist incidents in one way or another yet not one of them are banned (not even occasionally). And here, three pro-Palestine protests (among so many others) are going badly (note two of them were banned and that nobody even mentions that all pro-Palestine rallies in the rest of France had no incidents) and all people speak about is how pro-Palestine activism in France is to blame for French antisemitism. Give me a break.

  8. Another pro-Palestine protest in Paris has been banned. The one on Wednesday was allowed and from what I understood, the difference probably lies in the different organizations that organized them. The one on Saturday is organized by much more political, staunchly anti - racist and anti colonial, organizations (such as Parti des Indigènes). That is one more proof they do not want ethnic minorities to politically mobilize in France. The protest on Wednesday went fine. They don’t even have any “antisemitic incidents” to hide behind this time.

    tamghrabit replied to your post: What the heck is that trend on here of…

    What, where, who?

    his username is myvoicemyright, he’s Tunisian and he just went around calling an anti-Zionist blogger antisemitic…

    Your response just confirms my accusation. Black bloggers have nothing to prove to you. Cet outta here with your respectability politics. How petty must you be for you to demand from Black bloggers a particular reaction just because they’re Black? And if you wish to be anti-black so much, at least check your facts because Obama isn’t even African-American. Nobody misunderstood you because your words are flagrant enough.

    And truly you really don’t care about the situation of Black people in Israel if you use them as a cheap point like that.

    Brandon didn’t bully anyone. Let me remind you that this blogger and others keep screenshotting his posts and stalking his every move on the Internet just so they can freely take his words out of context and rant about how anti-zionism is antisemitic. Do they really expect that Brandon won’t eventually respond to their crap eventually? Don’t start saying you’re being bullied when you are the one doing petty things like this.

  10. Usually Marrakech feels like hellfire.  But when my plane landed last night, the night was surprisingly cool. Cooler than in France even. Haha. And today doesn’t feel really hot yet. :) I guess for hijab,  you should ask other Moroccan women who wear hijab what they wear in Morocco (fabric, etc). Pretty sure it’d help.

  11. Man white tourists going to Morocco dress so badly. In the plane, there were all those Moroccans dressed well and looking classy and next to them all those tourists in a hippie-wannabe style.

  13. stay-human:

    If actual holocaust survivors can acknowledge Israel is fucked up straight out there is literally 0 excuse for removed Jewish American teenagers to be all “my emotional attachment to Israel makes things complicated”. It’s a fucking genocidal state, there is nothing “complicated” about supporting ethnic supremacy and genocide, you’re a piece of shit is what it is.

    The killing of women and children is horrific—but in the reiteration of these disturbing facts there is something missing: the public mourning of Palestinian men killed by Israel’s war machine. In 1990 Cynthia Enloe coined the term “womenandchildren” in order to think about the operationalization of gendered discourses to justify the first Gulf War. Today, we should be aware of how the trope of “womenandchildren” is circulating in relation to Gaza and to Palestine more broadly. This trope accomplishes many discursive feats, two of which are most prominent: The massifying of women and children into an undistinguishable group brought together by the “sameness” of gender and sex, and the reproduction of the male Palestinian body (and the male Arab body more generally) as always already dangerous. Thus the status of male Palestinians (a designation that includes boys aged fifteen and up, and sometimes boys as young as thirteen) as “civilians” is always circumspect.

    This gendering of Israel’s war on Gaza is conversant with discourses of the War on Terror and, as Laleh Khalili has argued persuasively, counter-insurgency strategy and war-making more broadly. In this framework, the killing of women and girls and pre-teen and under boys is to be marked, but boys and men are presumed guilty of what they might do if allowed to live their lives. Furthermore, these boys and men are potentially dangerous not only to the militaries that occupy them, but to those womenandchildren who actually are civilians. The young boys, after all, may grow up to be violent extremists. Thus, kill the flesh—extinguish the potential.

    […]

    The Israeli war machine, much like the US war machine in Afghanistan or Iraq, does not protect Palestinian queers and women and children. It kills them, maims them, and dispossesses them alongside their loved ones—for the simple reason that they are Palestinian, and thus able to be killed with impunity while the world watches. Today, the difference between Palestinian womenandchildren and Palestinian men is not in the production of corpses, but rather in the circulation of those corpses within dominant and mainstream discursive frames that determine who can be publicly mourned as true “victims” of Israel’s war machine. Thus the sheer number of womenandchildren dead are enough to mobilize the US president and the UN to make statements “condemning” the violence—but the killing, imprisonment, and maiming of Palestinian men and boys in times of war and ceasefire goes uncited. In Israel men, settlers, and even soldiers are framed as victims of Palestinian terrorism and aggression. All are publicly mourned. In an almost direct reversal, while Palestinian boys and men have been the primary target of Israel, as evidenced by the population of political prisoners and targeted assassinations, are not seen by western based mainstream media as victims of Israeli terrorism and aggression. Palestinians are put in the self-defeating position of having to fight to be recognized as human, to be recognized in death and in life as victims of Israeli policies and actions.

  15. Man, this Tunisian dude has really violent language. It was only one post about him on the internet, what must it be when something pisses him off in real life.
