Love Affair With Qatar Magnifies: Realism Concerning The Motivation of UAE and Saudi Arabia; Difficulties of Coming to Age in Sex Segregated Settings; Reading the Quran Already Achieving Some Insights; Thank Me and Do Not Be Ungrateful; Duplicity and Adherent Defined; Fantastic Fish

This is so true, this is what the Emir says about the so-called brokered deal with the UAE and Israel. “Palestinian groups have denounced the deal, saying it ignores the rights of Palestinians and does not serve the Palestinian cause.”

Exactly! Whose cause does this silly brokered deal serve??? The UAE and Saudi Arabia – they are the only ones.Well, I guess Trump as well! What a collection those guys are. All are jealous of Qatar and there is nothing worse than a jealous woman. They are that! Perhaps not Trump, but look at the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia swishing about in his Arabic clothes, and this is the true and honest word. His country condemns homosexuality to the utmost. Death is the ‘final solution’ But he swishes about in London, (and other places) I am quite sure. Not at home, for goodness sakes. UAE no better, but better concealed. But enormous problems in the Arab world. When young Arab men reach puberty and become sexual they have no outlet for their sexual desires as women are secluded and they must be virgins when they marrry. Therefore, they reach out to one another. Just as Upper-class British boys did, sent off to segregated male only schools at a young age. Homosexuality was rampant in “public schools”. Upper Class Brits married and did somewhat assume a bi-sexual status, but poorly. They were, and are, absentee fathers and husbands. That is a fact, not a rumour. Duplicity in all its forms I do so detest. Duplicity: the state of being double. Its synonyms are: deceit, deception, deviousness, two-facedness, double-dealing, underhandedness, dishonesty, falseness, falsity, fraud, fraudulence, sharp practice, swindling, cheating, chicanery, trickery, craft, guile, artifice, subterfuge, skulduggery, treachery, unfairness, unjustness, perfidy, improbity; crookedness, shadiness, foxiness, dirty tricks, shenanigans, monkey business, funny business, hanky-panky; jiggery-pokery; monkeyshines; Antonym is honesty.
This haunts the upper class in the UK – subterage, falseness, cheating and guile haunts their lives. Look at the Royal Family of Windsor as a prime example. So much hanky-panky, Randy Andy, for example. If you an addict of British murder mysteries (as I once was), it is a constant theme and inspires the death of many dull people.

Is there a solution? In the UK – doubtful. Is there a solution in the Islamic Faith? The answer is yes. But for some reason two powerful men within the Arabic faith do not follow it. They could, and on Judgment Day, even with their homosexual leanings receive grace from Allah. What do they have to do? Perhaps they could go to an Islamic scholar and ask him. I know, but you do not get something for nothing. Hahahah I love saying that to incredibly rich men. I am not at all money grubbing but sometimes they need to put some effort into doing something other than maintaining a false image.

It is rather an amazing and gratifying experience to become an adherent of the Islamic faith at a later age, after a lifetime of being an atheist. By the way the synonyms of adherent are follower,
supporter, upholder, defender, advocate, disciple, votary, partisan, member, friend, stalwart; fanatic, zealot; believer, worshipper, attender; fan, admirer, enthusiast, devotee, lover, addict, aficionado; Antonyms are: opponent. So I have become a supporter, an advocate, a member, a worshipper of the Islamic faith.

My ‘task’ to be completed before my entry into the faith, according to ‘my’Islamic scholar is to read the Quran and to speak to Allah, whereupon Allah and I will decide when I am ‘ready’ I am proceeding with some self-appointed haste. By the way, the Quran is “the Islamic sacred book, believed to be the word of God as dictated to Muhammad by the archangel Gabriel and written down in Arabic. The Koran consists of 114 units of varying lengths, known as suras; the first sura is said as part of the ritual prayer. These touch upon all aspects of human existence.’

I am, obviously, on the first unit. But it sings to me – it is so similar to the stance in my life. This is basically what is said: I do not think so, you non believing phoneys, you do not fool me at all and neither should you fool yourself. God knows better and can see beneath your fakery. Then as some degree of peace is made, this is said: “So remember you and I will remember you . And thank me and do not be ungrateful”

One does not give into the forces of evil, somewhat make peace and not live in hatred. But on the other hand one commands respect. “Thank me and do not be ungrateful”
I am reading the Quran on my iPad, downloaded an English translation. It does seem.a bit unusual to be reading an ancient test on an iPad, but then again, my life Is rather unusual.

Difficult times in my personal life. I have the love, respect and concern of all of my physicians and eagerly await test results. But they shall not be forthcoming soon as the office manager mailed the order rather than give them to me in person. But I have become almost calm about the situation. I am not convinced that the tests and MRI will reveal the source or cause of the tiny blood clots and it is something I may have to live with. It is unrealistic to think that there is a cause and a cure for everything. So I am a bit depressed but in order to be a Phoenix Rising From The Ashes – one first has to ‘become’ ashes.

The photograph is of the most excellent fish dish that exists on the face of the earth. It was prepared by Personal Driver and Personal Driver’s Wife. All praise to Allah! I am so blessed. Trust me, it is absolutely delicious.

I made a promise to myself – Alexis, stop worrying about peace in the Middle East and instead concentrate on your reading. So I shall!
