  1. avecsabombe replied to your post: I just replied to this woman’s salaam …

    how did she know u were french

    dard—e—dil replied to your post: I just replied to this woman’s salaam …

    why did she assume you were french? this confuses me

    Because my aunt told her I was visiting her from France. That’s why she gave me such a comment, otherwise she wouldn’t have known because I always avoid speaking French here if I can. If I knew this woman, I wouldn’t mind. But I don’t so she should mind her own business tbh lol. 

  2. I just replied to this woman’s salaam with “Assalamu aleykoum” and she then tells me “Just to tell you there’s no bonjour here. We speak arabic”. Bitch did I freaking tell you bonjour? I said no French word to you. I gave you a salaam back, what’s up with your unnecessary passive aggressive comments. 

  3. herpriorities a réagi à votre billet “What the heck is the ice-bucket challenge. ”

    It’s a challenge where people dump a bucket of ice on their head or pay 10 dollars OR they pay for each person they challenged who does the challenge. It’s raised millions of dollars for ALS

    Oh I see. Thank you!! That sounds really nice! 

  4. What the heck is the ice-bucket challenge.

  7. dumpybear Haha that’s OK. It happens. Was that my name that confused you? I have noticed that my name often confuses non-Arabs. Probably the way it is written in the Latin alphabet or something.

  8. I think I’ve become a pro at this eyeliner thing.

    ras-al-ghul-is-dead:

    A silent protest in Love Park, downtown Philadelphia orchestrated by performance artists protesting the murder of Michael Brown in Ferguson. The onslaught of passerby’s  wanting to take photos with the statue exemplifies the disconnect in American society.  Simply frame out the dead body, and it doesn’t exist.  

    Here are some observations by one of the artists involved in the event:

    I don’t know who any of these folks are.

    They were tourists I presume.

    But I heard most of what everything they said. A few lines in particular stood out. There’s one guy not featured in the photos. His friends were trying to get him to join the picture but he couldn’t take his eyes off the body.

    "Something about this doesn’t feel right. I’m going to sit this one out, guys." "Com’on man… he’s already dead."

    (Laughs.)

    There were a billion little quips I heard today. Some broke my heart. Some restored my faith in humanity. There was an older white couple who wanted to take a picture under the statue.

    The older gentleman: “Why do they have to always have to shove their politics down our throats.” Older woman: “They’re black kids, honey. They don’t have anything better to do.”

    One woman even stepped over the body to get her picture. But as luck would have it the wind blew the caution tape and it got tangle around her foot. She had to stop and take the tape off. She still took her photo.

    There was a guy who yelled at us… “We need more dead like them. Yay for the white man!”

    "One young guy just cried and then gave me a hug and said ‘thank you. It’s nice to know SOMEBODY sees me.’

    I’m just gonna keep reblogging this because this is truly how white America works. Like people have their weddings on plantations, Blackface was and still is a major source of entertainment and the biggest movie of all time was Gone With the Wind. White America will kill Black people and then smile and laugh and enjoy their day it sickens me that we’re treated this way.

  11. that’s not exactly what people usually mean when we say “Rif” but my maternal grandmother’s family is originally from Tangier (I don’t know how come they are in Marrakech now.  Don’t ask me lmao. but in a nutshell I have no Marrakchi roots whatsoever). that’s why I want to know and see more of Northern Morocco and of Tangier in particular. We still have family members there from what I have understood.

  12. "

    A 91-year-old Dutch man who was awarded a prestigious honour by the State of Israel for his family’s role in saving a Jewish child from the Holocaust has returned his prize after six of his relatives were killed in Gaza.

    In 2011 the Israeli authorities declared Henk Zanoli ‘Righteous Among the Nations’ – a title bestowed upon non-Jews who helped save Jews from the Holocaust. During the Nazi occupation of Holland Mr Zanoli’s family had helped shelter a young boy until the Allied liberation in 1945.

    Mr Zanoli’s father was deported from Holland and subsequently died in the Dachau concentration camp due to his outspoken opposition to the German occupation.

    "After the horror of the Holocaust my family strongly supported the Jewish people also with regard to their aspirations to build a national home", wrote Mr Zanoli.

    "Over more than six decades I have however slowly come to realize that the Zionist project had from its beginning a racist element in it in aspiring to build a state exclusively for Jews.

    On Sunday July 20 an Israeli fighter jet dropped a bomb on the family home of Ismail Ziadah, the husband of Mr Zanoli’s great-neice. According to Haaretz the strike killed the family matriarch, Muftiyah, 70, three of her sons, Jamil, Omar and Youssef, Jamil’s wife, Bayan and their 12-year-old son, Shaaba

  13. And also, Riffians usually have better politics than other Moroccans due to, y’know, their history with the Makhzen.

    [Looks at you seriously] No freaking way I am having a relationship with a Makhzen-lover.

  14. I am back to Marrakech since yesterday evening. I was visiting my father’s family in the region of Ouarzazate. I was, like, not looking forward to do the trip because it takes a full 7 hours and it is a hard one. But I met this really cute and charming guy and we spoke for a good part of the travel so I have nothing to complain about. He turned out to be Riffian. AND LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT RIFFIANS.
