    News: State Terrorism in China 

    Thought Police in China Abduct, Abuse, Brainwash Innocents
    Forced Disappearances in China
    Organ Harvesting in China
    Orwell’s Surveillance State Comes to Life in China
    China Plans to Base Individual Rights on Score Derived from Surveillance
    The overall picture is, the Communists are watching you and if you are religious or free-minded you are more likely to be abducted, tortured, murdered, or have your organs stolen.
    “For the past year, Chen’s war has meant mass detentions, splintered families, lives consumed by uncertainty.”
    “Those of Uighur ethnicity are automatically docked 10 points. Being aged between 15 and 55, praying daily, or having a religious education, all result in 10 point deductions.
    In the final columns, each Uighur resident’s score is tabulated and checked ‘trusted,’ ‘ordinary,’ or ‘not trusted.’ Activists say they anecdotally hear about Uighurs with low scores being sent to indoctrination.” [Independent UK]

    “IMAGINE being abducted and whisked away to a cell where you spend the next several months or years with no charge or conviction. There, authorities torture you and force you to watch films designed to brainwash in a bid to align your views with those of China’s ruling Communist Party.”

    “…You might make it out alive after years of enduring the brutal treatment. Or you might be secretly executed. There’s also a strong chance you might die on the operating table after surgeons sedate you and start removing organs from your body, one by one — while you’re still alive. The government will say that you simply disappeared or that you were never there to begin with. But it’ll most likely say nothing at all.” [News.com.au]

    News: Furious Reactions to Trump's Jerusalem Decision 

     
    US President Donald Trump has fulfilled his campaign promise to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and begin plans to move the US embassy there. This decision has infuriated Muslims, Arabs, and Palestine sympathizers across the world, and resulted in many protests across the Middle East, as well as in Malaysia, Indonesia, and parts of Europe. The move has been rightly condemned on account of its unfairness to Palestinians, as well as its likelihood to inflame the region and cause bloodshed. Trump, however, has described it as “nothing more or less than a recognition of reality.” The decision has led to outbursts of anti-American and anti-Israel sentiment, including the chanting of slogans and burning and stomping on flags. Others have taken to mocking Trump on Twitter.
    The Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh called for a new Palestinian uprising against Israel. Protests have broken out in the West Bank, and Israel has boosted its security presence in the area. Several rockets were fired from Gaza, one of which hit the entrance of a kindergarten. Subsequently, Israel carried out a bombing expedition in Gaza which injured more than twenty Palestinians, including children. A Palestinian in Jerusalem stabbed an Israeli. Hundreds of Palestinian protesters have been injured, and two men were shot dead.
    An emergency United Nations Security Council meeting was held in response to Trump’s decision, in which five European UNSC members strongly denounced the move, without taking further action.
    Turkish President Erdogan has been particularly vocal. He warned before the move that it was a “red line” and would throw the region into a “ring of fire,” and he further threatened to cut off Turkey’s diplomatic ties with Israel. After the announcement of the decision, Erdogan described Israel as an “occupying state” and “terror state” that “kills children.” He and French President Macron jointly agreed to urge the US to reconsider its decision.
    A meeting of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (consisting of 57 member states with large Muslim populations) has been scheduled in Istanbul to discuss the issue. The Arab League (consisting of 22 Arab member states) condemned the decision as a violation of international law and announced its intention to seek a U.N. Security Council resolution rejecting the decision.
    The parliament of Jordan has voted to review their peace treaty with Israel. However, any major foreign policy decisions will have to be approved by the King Abdullah II. Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas has cancelled his planned meeting with US Vice President Mike Pence. The Patriarch of the Coptic Church of Egypt has likewise announced that he will not be receiving Pence on his upcoming visit to Egypt.
    Jerusalem is of great significance to Jews, Christians, and Muslims alike. Trump’s move has been ascribed by some to Evangelical motives. Whatever Trump’s intentions were, it can still be hoped that the different parties involved will incline towards peace and that the decision will not prevent productive negotiations from taking place.

    فيروز – بقطفلك بس Fairuz – Batiflak Bass 


    I only pick you.. this time.. only this time..
    And only tomorrow a flower.. a red flower and that’s it..
    And afterwards all I want is a home for you.
    My house is promised when I speak to you.
    Oh woe to my eyes, how I will miss you.
    I’m like a crazy person, I’m saying to you.
    I only pick you.. this time.. only this time..
    And only tomorrow a flower.. a red flower and that’s it..
    I dream that you will remain for a month, you’re on my mind.
    I wish to say poetry, I don’t know what to say.
    Remember again how we stayed awake in my tent.
    As we stayed awake I slowly said these words:
    I only pick you.. this time.. only this time..
    And only tomorrow a flower.. a red flower and that’s it..

    French Civil Code: Cases of Divorce 

    Book I: On Persons
    Section VI: On Divorce
    Chapter I: On Cases of Divorce
    Article 229
    Spouses may mutually consent to divorce by a privately signed deed that is countersigned by lawyers and legally filed with a notary.
    Divorce may be decreed in the following cases:

    • Mutual consent, in the case provided for under 1° of Article 229-2;
    • Agreement on the principle of ending the marriage;
    • Definitive alteration of the marital relation;
    • Fault.

    Section 1: On Divorce by Mutual Consent
    Subsection 1: On Divorce by mutual consent by a privately signed deed that is countersigned by lawyers and legally filed with a notary
    Article 229-1
    When the spouses agree on ending the marriage and its consequences, they shall record this agreement, each accompanied by a lawyer, in the form of a privately signed deed that is countersigned by their lawyers and made under the conditions provided for under Article 1374.
    This agreement shall be legally filed with a notary, who verifies its conformity with the formal requirements provided under 1° to 6° of Article 229-3. He also ensures that the draft agreement was not signed before the expiration of the period of reflection provided for under Article 229-4.
    This filing takes effect on the agreement by giving it a fixed date and enforceability.
    Article 229-2
    The spouses cannot mutually consent to divorce by a privately signed deed that is countersigned by lawyers if:
    1° A minor, informed by his parents of his right to be heard by the judge under the conditions provided for under Article 388-1, requests a hearing before the judge.
    2° One of the spouses is placed under one of the protection systems provided for in Chapter II of Section XI of the present book.
    Article 229-3
    Consent to divorce and its consequences is not presumed.
    The agreement must explicitly include, on pain of nullity:
    1° The first name, last name, profession, residence, nationality, date and place of birth of each spouse, the date and place of their marriage, as well as the same information for each of their children, if applicable;
    2° The name, professional address and professional organization of the lawyers tasked with assisting the spouses as well as the bar to which they belong.
    3° A statement of the agreement of the spouses on the ending of the marriage and its consequences under the terms stated in the agreement.
    4° The complete terms of settlement of the consequences of the divorce in conformity with Chapter III of the present section, notably if there is a payment of a compensatory allowance
    5° The statement of realization and liquidation of the matrimonial regime, if applicable in the authentic notarized form when the liquidation applies to goods submitted to the land registry, or a declaration that there was no liquidation.
    6° A statement that the minor was informed by his or her parents of his or her right to be heard by the judge under the conditions provided for under Article 388-1 and that he or she does not wish to use this right.
    Article 229-4
    The lawyer sends to the spouse who he assists, by registered mail with a request for acknowledgement of receipt, a draft agreement, which cannot be signed, at pain of nullity, before the expiration of the period of reflection which lasts fifteen days from its reception.
    The agreement becomes enforceable on the day it acquires a fixed date.

    Layla – Poem by Shaykh Al-Alawi 

    LAYLA

    Full near I came unto where dwelleth
    Layla, when I heard her call

    That voice, would I might ever hear it!

    She favored me, and drew me to her,

    Took me in, into her precinct,

    With discourse intimate addressed me.

    She sat me by her, then came closer,
    Raised the cloak that hid her from me,
    Made me marvel to distraction,
    Bewildered me with all her beauty.
    She took me and amazed me,
    And hid me in her inmost self,
    Until I thought that she was I,
    And my life she took as ransom.
    She changed me and transfigured me,
    And marked me with her special sign,
    Pressed me to her, put me from her,
    Named me as she is named.
    Having slain and crumbled me,
    She steeped the fragments in her blood.
    Then, after my death, she raised me:
    My star shines in her firmament.
    Where is my life, and where my body,
    Where my willful soul? From her
    The truth of these shone out to me
    Secrets that had been hidden from me.
    Mine eyes have never seen but her:
    To naught else can they testify.
    All meanings in her are comprised.
    Glory be to her Creator!
    Thou that beauty wouldst describe,
    Here is something of her brightness
    Take it from me. It is my art.
    Think it not idle vanity.
    My Heart lied not when it divulged
    The secret of my meeting her.
    If nearness unto her effaceth,

    I still subsist in her subsistence.”

    Fire on top of the mountains
    Fire on top of the mountains
    Ooooooooooooooh
    My Darlings, oh Mother, left me

    Fire on top of the mountains
    Fire on top of the mountains

    نار بروس الجبالِ

    فيروز – يا عاقد الحاجبين Fairuz O Tall-browed One 


    English Lyrics:
    O tall-browed one
    What’s on your forehead drives me crazy
    If you intended to kill me
    You killed me twice… you killed me twice
    The gazelles come (i.e. his eyes) to leap among the paths and around me
    And I didn’t set up my window and prepare my eyes… and prepare my eyes
    It looks like you see me and your eyes fill mine
    And my actions are like yours, woe to me one of two assassins
    O my guardian! I was only kept alive by two glances
    I fear the rhymes will call to you in the two easts… to you in the two easts
     
    :عربي

    يا عاقد الحاجبين

    على الجبين اللُجين

    إن كنت تقصد قتلي

    قتلتني مرتينِ

    تمرّ قَفْزَ غزالٍ

    بين الرصيف وبيني

    وما نَصَبْتُ شباكي

    ولا أذِنْتُ لِعيني

    تبدو كأنْ لا تَرَانِي

    ومِلْءُ عينِكَ عيني

    ومثل فعلك فعلي

    وَيْلِي من الأحْمَقَينِ

    مولايَ لم تُبْقِ منّي

    حيّاً سوى رَمَقينِ

    أخافُ تدعو القوافي

    عليك في المشرقينِ

    Yellow leaves
    In the month of September
    beneath your youthfulness
    remind me of you
    And the yellow leaves
    (were) gold jewelry
    beneath your youthfulness
    beneath your youthfulness
    September returns and you are far from my cloudiness, my sorrow, its moon is one
    It makes me cry in this September winter and awakens me to you my Love
    The September winter nights resemble your eyes
    I wish for the wind if you forgot to come, my Love, on the first of Autumn
    The poplar forgets it and its moon hides and the night drags on
    And we remain, my Love, a stranger and my Stranger, me and September

    Feuilles jaunes
    au mois de Septembre
    sous ta jeunesse
    me font rappeler de toi
    Et les feuilles jaunes
    (étaient) des bijoux dorés
    sous ta jeunesse
    sous ta jeunesse
    Septembre revient et t’es loin de ma tristesse, ma nébulosité, sa lune est seule
    Ça me fait pleurer en hiver de Septembre et ça me reveille a toi mon Amour
    Les nuits d’hiver de Septembre ressemblent a tes yeux
    Je veux du vent si tu as oublié de venir, mon Amour, la première journée d’Automne
    Le peuplier l’oublie et sa lune se cache et la nuit s’éternise
    Et nous restons, mon Amour, une étrangère et mon Étranger, moi et la Septembre
