In the previous post, we talked a little about freedom of women in a patriarchal society and I find it essential to ask the question: how does the situation of women look like in the region of MENA? Women in my country –Algeria-, and in my region, are oppressed and most of the times for religious reasons; I’m sorry, I have nothing, absolutely nothing, against religions but I do have a lot of things to say about religious-men, especially those who call themselves “pious”...

I talked last time about honor killings in the region of MENA; it’s a critical problem that no one can deny! I had some thoughts about the issue and I tried to share them, I hope I’ve done well. Well, generally when we speak about honor killings, we speak about “freedom” and “individual liberties” because it’s all related. There are no doubts that the situation of “freedom” in the region of MENA is not good at all, we still didn’t get the fact that personal...


Thank you 2014!

It’s really amazing how we develop over the years, how we learn, how we succeed and how we fail sometimes. This life is a long journey, it’s kind of a race if I may say, and we must always ask the famous question: what makes us special? And when we find the answer; we’ll find out that we became successful! For me, the past year was the best! Even though I was having good grades over the past years, and even if I’m living in a lovely small family, but 2014 was indeed the b...

In order to continue our topic (honor killings), I chose to write about the solutions this time. People might ask me the famous question, how can we stop these homicides (honor killings)? Well, it’s pretty easy, before all, we must make the new generations understand and apply and follow the following principal “each one is free to do whatever he likes as long as he respects the laws and doesn’t harm others”, I know I’ve repeated this principal so many times but believe...

In the previous post, we talked about freedom in the MENA region and why it’s important to accept it in order to develop. Among the violations of human rights that we see in our communities, there is this awful crime that we call “honor killing”, it’s generally when a male family member kills a female family member for having a relationship, specially a sexual one with someone who is not her husband, or for being homosexual and things like that… well, let me say this: i...

When we denounce violations of human rights, when we defend women rights, especially in the MENA region, we are not talking just to talk, but we are describing the reality even if some people think we are overreacting or lying, even if some people want to hide the truth… We can’t stop talking to make those people happy, no! It’s our duty as human rights defenders, as human rights activists; to talk What we see today isn’t something easy, freedom is very important and vi...

“You can’t prohibit young people from searching for the truth, and when they found out that you lied to them, it’s not going to be neither a nice nor a good situation”. I believe this applies pretty well on Arab youth. We live under some circumstances and some life conditions that prohibit us from asking question either because it’s wrong to ask questions or because we are still young and we don’t have the right to know about certain things! It seems like a tough situ...

Terrorism is hurting our world, it’s harming our children, and it’s killing us every day. Thousands or may be even millions of children are suffering because of terrorist groups, because of some people who thought they represent God; any way, killing, bombing and murdering other people is unacceptable, I don’t care about their reasons, I don’t care about their justifications and excuses, it’s just unacceptable no matter what. I feel really bad when I hear about terroris...

Every one of us is a fan of something, each one has his hobbies and likes things, things that makes him happy… well for me, I guess these things would be: movies, series and books (In addition to politics, ideologies and religions but I do think they should not be considered as hobbies, at least for me). Today, I’m not going to write an essay about a problem as I used to, I’m not going to try to give opinions and thoughts about something, I’m simply going to tell my story,...
