The adverse effects of impunity on humanity

The adverse effects of impunity on humanity

26 Apr, '160 Comments

I happened across a couple of posts on Facebook which clearly demonstrated to me the adverse effects of impunity on humanity. In the first instance, we witness a member of the Israeli forces physically tipping over a handicapped Palestinian in a wheelchair and then physically assaults him. The situation around that crime quickly descends in […]

Sources of ISIS Support

Sources of ISIS Support

26 Apr, '160 Comments

  The Brookings Institute published a study on where the pockets of ISIS support are around the world. They analysed the sources of supportive Tweets and found that the majority emanate from Muslim countries. It’s no surprise to me that ISIS sympathisers are within our Arab communities. Their major support comes from the land of the birth of […]

How important is a business exit plan?

How important is a business exit plan?

What’s the average life of a business? I don’t know for certain, and I doubt anyone else in Bahrain or the Middle East knows either. Statistics of this sort are just not prioritised, and if they are, then they are not published. US statistics suggest that, on average, a Fortune 500 company lasts around 40 to 50 years. […]

I woke up early on Friday and promised myself to have a good day. I was out of bed by 04:55 and left home by 5:20 with my mountain bicycle loaded into the car and happiness and good anticipation in my heart. I was going to meet new people and ride into new terrain, one […]

Cycling in Bahrain

Cycling in Bahrain

4 Apr, '161 Comment

My advice to any budding and experienced cyclist: Wear a helmet . Get up early . Ride defensively . Wear a helmet, seriously! The extent of my experience in cycling is quite limited. I’ve only started a couple months ago. I bought it on January 27 on a whim when I noticed a second-hand mountain bike […]

#PrayForLahore

Prayer, no matter how well intentioned, isn’t enough to defeat terrorists. Every one of us has a responsibility to confront them intellectually and morally at least. Governments with influence on countries which incubate and empowers terrorists and terrorism must act responsibly and take action beyond immediate economic considerations to force them to flush out sources of […]

Brussels and other terrorist attacks

23 Mar, '1617 Comments

Hands up all of those who are still surprised by continued terrorist attacks around the world. I’m not. They will continue as long as their financing continues apace, their ideological support continues to be undiminished, and their apologists continue to refuse to accept the root cause and source of these cowards. If the world is […]

ISIS and Islam are inseparable

ISIS and Islam are inseparable

20 Nov, '156 Comments

Islamic terror is gripping the world with Muslims now being confronted – rightly – to do something about their own grown extremism. The world would no longer tolerate placebos and political correctness and simple condemnation. They want action. The world has also lost patience with Islamist apologists who maintain their myopic position that ISIS and […]

To tattoo or not to tattoo

To tattoo or not to tattoo

9 Nov, '150 Comments

Until today, I was ambivalent to against tattoos. I can tolerate them on other people’s skin as it’s their skin, not mine. It’s their personal freedom and nothing to do with me. But today… oh today… I am ALL FUCKING FOR TATTOOS AND WILL GET SOME ON MY SKIN. I’LL GET INKED. And to the […]
