TOKYO, "Stop air assault on Gaza" T-T

Around 200 people held a rally in Tokyo Tuesday against Israel's deadly attacks on Gaza and urged Japan to use its influence to end the violence.

Carrying flowers and candles, the demonstrators offered a one-minute prayer in front of the Israeli embassy, with a Buddhist monk ringing a bell for the souls of the victims.
They placed a letter of protest in the embassy's mailbox hours after delivering a separate letter to Japan's foreign ministry urging it to put pressure on Israel. Japan is a major donor to the Middle East peace process.

Israel attacked the Gaza Strip Saturday in retaliation for rocket fire from the territory, killing at least 360 Palestinians and wounding 1,690.

The banner say "Don't kill children"

May God help themT-T

I am really sad that the New Year for Palestinians at GAZA started with parents losing their children and children losing their parents, I saw kids on the TV talking about stuff adults can barely understand. They are familiar with seeing dead bodies and blood everywhere, hospitals does not have enough medicine and capacity to receive more victims, I am really sad T-T

The thing that annoy me the most is that I can’t do anything about it , as a middle eastern and a Palestinian girl I feel ashamed , all I can do now is pray for them T-T

May god help people at Gaza , I raise a prayer from the bottom of my heart.

Good byeTaka chan T-T

Finally the day Taka chan must leave Jordan came, I was really sad because Taka chan was one of the nicest people I ever met.

Thursday was a very busy day, I met with A chan , F chan and my sis at Mecca mall to buy a present for Taka chan , thank god that she liked it ^-^
We really had a blast at the mall.

CCS...Good bye^-^

I quit working at CCS , it was a good company , but I didn't feel that it was my thing , today is my last day working there.

although I didn't like tasks assigned to me(oracle O-o) but I really enjoyed being there surrounded with a lot of good , caring and funny people ^-^ , It was fun.

In a previous post , I advised you minasan not to work in something that you don't like , and my opinion remains the same however , being in a working environment and communicating with people is a great experience that you shouldn't miss , As I move on , I wish that my life will get better , and I hope that my next career will be better than the one before ^-^

Second day, I stayed at home, family members visited us, It was also fun.
Then it was friends time , I decided to do something new , so instead of going out with my friends at night , we went out early in the morning , we agreed to meet at 11 am ,I was sleepy , I phoned h chan to make sure that she is still going , but I was surprised to find out that she was still sleeping O_o

Anyway, we decided to meet at “abu jubara” , a place for “falafel , humus and stuff” , it was really nice , having breakfast with friends is great.
Then we decided to walk to city mall, we decided to see a movie there called “madagascar2”, we talked a lot ^-^in the way (totemo tanoshikatta)

Happy Eid...\(^o^)/

At the end of the Hajj (annual pilgrimage to Mecca), Muslims throughout the world celebrate the holiday of Eid al-Adha (Festival of Sacrifice). In 2008, Eid al-Adha will begin tomorrow, and will last for three days.^-^

During the celebration of Eid al-Adha, Muslims slaughter an animal such as a sheep, camel, or goat. Allah has given us power over animals and allowed us to eat meat, but only if we pronounce His name at the solemn act of taking life. Muslims slaughter animals in the same way throughout the year. By saying the name of Allah at the time of slaughter, we are reminded that life is sacred.

The meat from the sacrifice of Eid al-Adha is mostly given away to others. One-third is eaten by immediate family and relatives, one-third is given away to friends, and one-third is donated to the poor. The act symbolizes our willingness to give up things that are of benefit to us or close to our hearts, in order to follow Allah's commands. It also symbolizes our willingness to give up some of our own bounties, in order to strengthen ties of friendship and help those who are in need. We recognize that all blessings come from Allah, and we should open our hearts and share with others.

On the first morning of Eid al-Adha, Muslims around the world attend morning prayers at their local mosques. Prayers are followed by visits with family and friends, and the exchange of greetings and gifts. At some point, members of the family will visit a local farm or otherwise will make arrangements for the slaughter of an animal. The meat is distributed during the days of the holiday or shortly thereafter.

People usually bake something called “ma’amool”, and also we make Arabic coffee that goes with "ma'amool" perfectly^o^(oishii)

our own ma'amool^-^

I have drew & designed this card , I hope you will like it minasan

After Eid ,I am going to post what I did during Eid , I want to hear from you minasan what is your plans for Eid?

enjoy this amazing holiday and have a very nice Eid^-^

Venus…what a beautiful scene ^-^

On Monday a lot of people in Jordan noticed something in the sky o_O, something that is considered a rare astronomical event that is not expected to happen only after a thousand years for the whole region.

This wonderful union between Venus and the moon was seen clearly with the naked eye in many countries in the region.

Sara's pictures (enjoy^-^)

It looks like a drawing ^-^

It was really amazing, minasan, did you notice it? I did ^-^
