With red bulging eyes burning like hell, his distressed slow steps dragged his dead body into the class room. His beloved students got amazed as they took a glance of his miserable self in contrast to the usual polished and well dressed one.
Every student in this class loved their teacher ever since he had been teaching them. Their hearts literally missed some beats as he spoke out in a broken voice, again, very unusual as compared to his usual soft polite voice.
“How are you all”
“We are fine Sir !” They all spoke out at once. The pin dropped silence scattered for a second and then settled itself back.
He never used to teach them in ordinary ways i.e by reading from books or through cramming. He had his own style. He would usually tell them an incomplete story and then students would ask questions to complete that story extracting all the hidden lessons inside.
“Listen to my today’s story carefully students, it is real and the topic is sensitive” His voice felt hollow as he continued.
The world’s most “moral army” of Israel committed a new massacre this Sunday, November 18, 2012.
The Israeli aircraft bombed a 5-storey building in Gaza City, a building that houses 40 people, belonging to the Dalou family: 12 people died in the Dalou family, among them: six children, three women and two seniors. There were 25 wounded.
And the atrocities continued—
As the Israeli military’s “Operation Protective Edge” entered its third day, the death toll in Gaza continued to mount. As of this writing, at least 81 Palestinians have been killed in three days–among them 22 children-and over 550 injured as a result of the air force dropping hundreds of bombs. A driver for journalists was killed, as were Palestinians watching the World Cup at a beach coffee shop.
Zero deaths of Israeli people has been recorded so far.
The typical Israeli crimes against the children and civilians, a new massacre against humanity…
And a new silent complicity of the countries that claim to defend human rights.
A piercing cold silent breath followed his voice as he stopped and searched for questions in the scared eyes of his students who were sitting still while holding their breaths.
“Sir, After all the atrocity of US on Iraq, India on Kashmir and Israel on Palestine, why do they still call us Muslims as terrorists?” A sad innocent student finally spoke out.
“Because my son, they needed some solid base to aim their atrocities at, and to blame weak and innocent people by exploiting them on the basis of religion. They have to hide their terrorism by calling Muslims doing Jihad as terrorists”
“Sir, What exactly is Jihad ? As non-Muslims claim that every Muslim doing Jihad is a terrorist, Is this true ? “
“Let me make it clear for you.
What is Jihad:
1- Travelling to another Muslim majority country like Palestine where non-Muslims have invaded and they are doing barbaric activities and injustice, and fighting against them with weapons is Jihad.
2- Spreading the word about the atrocities of non-Muslims doing atrocities on Muslims, or about the bad activities happening in one’s own country by writing or speaking on radio or reporting or by any means, is Jihad.
3- Striving against the evil desires of the soul is a kind of Jihad.
4- Spending wealth for the greater good of people who are under oppressive rule, who are not free to do anything. is Jihad.
What is NOT Jihad:
1- Suicide bomb blasts is by no means called as Jihad.
2- Fighting with the innocent people with weapons, without any reason is not Jihad.
3- Forcing non-Muslims to enter in Islam by using force is not Jihad.
4- Spreading hostility and destroying peace by any means is not Jihad.
And about the other part of your question. No, every Muslim who truly does Jihad is called as Jihadi. Unfortunately there are some people,extremists to be precise, who have no idea what Jihad is and they spread terrorism on the name of religion and Jihad. These are the people who are responsible for making an image of ‘terrorist’ for every Muslim in the minds of people all around the world.
“What should we do Sir, to fight against the atrocities of Isreal? How can we play our part?”
“You are the young pure future image of Muslims my students. Hold your pen and tell the world about the real face of terrorists. Fight against them, if not with the sword, then with your pen and tongue.You have to fight until they stop their barbaric actions on innocent people. Tell them, Islam is about peace. Tell them how the real face of terrorists look like”.
His breath started clustering in his throat and tears came rushing out of his eyes.
“Sir, are you alright? ”
“No, I am not alright. I have lost my only 4 years old son in the bomb blasts of Israel. I am not fine, because I couldn’t save my son as I was teaching my students at the time he was taking his last breaths. I won’t be fine till Israel stops killing innocent people in Palestine and I won’t be fine until every human being on this earth stops killing other human being on the name of religion and geographical boundaries. I won’t be fine until ‘humans‘ start practicing ‘Humanity‘ ”
Say NO to the Terrorism of Israel with Me !

Reblogged this on Lost in my Maze… and commented:
Only Humans with compassion would relate….A very recommended read.
Well written. Its a shame some still justify it -_-
Riveting read, Lala. This post is very important and I wish the message could be propagated by the leaders of the world. Misconceptions abound. The pictures too touched my heart. God help us.
A great post.
Thanks for writing about the jihad and what is not jihad
People should know the difference so they stop blaming Muslims for everything
Glad you made this post and highlighted the real meaning of Jihaad. Gonna reblog. 🙂

Israel was planted by the British in repayment of some guys financial backing in the WW effort. And now this illegitimate child has grown up and (as some STRONG servant of God say) is propped up by the US. Do not curse Israel, for the real culprits are the British and the US.
and other countries who choose to remain silent.
Sadly..True Christianity..the Christianity that existed before the Roman Emperor Constantine molded Jesus aka Yeshua into a GOD instead of a humble teacher..yes a messenger of GOD..instead of A GOD..to RULE OTHER HUMANS WITH AN IRON FIST..OF BELIEVE AS WE DO OR DIE..JESUS IS GOD AND ALL OF THAT..IS YES TRULY SAD..AND THE SOURCE OF MUCH DEATH AND DESTRUCTION..in all of the world…
from my studies on this..
i see GOD aka ALLAH
as THE GOD OF ALL OF NATURE..
AND NOT A CONCEPT THAT HUMANS
OPPRESS AND SUBJUGATE FREE CHILDREN
BUT TRUTH TOO..
IS ALLAH MAKES
WILL TO SECURE
we have cognitive abilities
beyond the other territorial animals..
AND THE EMPATHIC GENE THAT GOD
GIVE US..TO SHARE AND COOPERATE..
AND EVEN OUR CLOSEST PRIMATE ANCESTOR…
the all Loving BONOBO SHARES THIS EMPATHY GENE
That the Chimpanzee does not share..and yes
RAPES AND PILLAGES..THAT NO IS NOT OUR INHERENT NATURE2!
SO WHAT TO DO..
THE SAD TRUTH IS…
THE REALITY IS…
THE RESOURCES ARE EXTREMELY LIMITED IN THE MIDDLE
FERTILE WEST OF NEW WORLD..US..THAT YES EVENTUALLY
FALL TO MUCH FEWER RESOURCES TOO..IF PEOPLE ARE NOT
PROPER STEWARDS OF MOTHER NATURE OF ALLAH..TRUE!
i do not think..that Terrorism..or religion singularly is the TRUE CAUSE
OF CONFLICT IN PALESTINE…
HOWEVER..IT (religion) CAN SUPPORT THE HUMAN INSTINCT TO SECURE RESOURCES
AND TERRITORY FOR BASIC SURVIVAL…
THE LUXURY WE HAVE IN THE US..IS RESOURCES SO FAR BEYOND THE MIDDLE
EAST FOR BASIC SURVIVAL..
WE CAN HAVE LEISURE ACTIVITY AND PLAY SO MANY SPORTS GAMES..
FOR PEOPLE TO VICARIOUSLY FILL the need for territorial and TRIBAL PRIDE..
THAT IS ONLY VICARIOUS IN GAME..
AND NOT A SCENARIO WHERE LIFE AND BLOOD..
IS LOST ALMOST AT ANYTIME WITH NO notice possible..
As PEOPLE WILL FIGHT TO THE DEATH..
in SECURING VITAL LAND
THE ONLY ANSWER THAT WILL WORK IN THIS CONFLICT..
IS TO GIVE THE PALESTINIANS A STATE AND LEGAL RIGHTS
TO LAND AND RESOURCES THAT THEY KNOW THEY HAVE FOR BASIC
is still and eye for and eye religion…
And sad as it is..
The only answer for folks that live there..
IS TO ESCAPE..
OR LIVE IN THIS LITERAL HUMAN HELL..
WHERE ANY DAY..CAN BE THE LAST…
It’s been going on since 66 AD..
is just too cruel..
But humans in their frailty can make it that way…
i hate this reality and i am passionate about it..
eg..all the CAPS…
Even though the only real answer that i know will work..
is for those folks fortunate enough to simply get away….
And to answer your question in the other comment..
i am doing better than ever..
i am blessed
s aka GOD’s
First of all Lala! Welcome back… welcome back to your home! 🙂
This post sort of made me smile in awe… Ek hi ghatna (waakiye) ko do desh kitne alag alag tareeke se present kar sakte hain… uska live example… I guess tujhe to pataa hi hoga… ki on this issue of Israel… India aur Pakistan ke views bahut alag hain… So… us debate ko side mein rakhte hain…
I very well know ki Jihad in the real form is not terrorism… It is the misinterpretation that causes all the problems… So I guess we must first ensure ki aisa misinterpretation na ho… hai na? Warna dekh duniya to duniya hai… Log stereotypes to banaate hi hain… and that causes all the greater problems…
So I don’t know… ek genuine question… what is being done to ensure ki aise misinterpretations na hon?
I hope I did not hurt anyone’s sentiments… Mere kai muslim dost hain… and they are fantastic human beings… I just want the situation to improve… that is why the question…
Thank you so much brother.
First of all, I don’t know what are your views about the Israel matter, though I would love to know how do you answer all these atrocities shown in the photos and the mass murder of innocent civilians in comparison to zero deaths of Israel people. And how do you explain all this barbaric action as good, if you are on their side.
About your other question brother, sadly , as far as I know, there are no measures taken so far to ensure k ye misinterpretations na hun…. This is the main reason why most of the people, even Muslims don’t have the real idea what Jihad is actually. Or extremism me aa k wo aisa kuch ker letay hain jo Jihad nae Gunnah hota hai. Yeh mera knowledge kehta hai baaki I don’t know for sure k kisi ne kuch kia hai ya naheen.
I know brother that perspective of normal people from both the countries or you can say both religions is entirely different as compared to their governments.
A great post!
If these barbarian terrorists were truly Muslims they would never take away an innocent’s life! It is Allah’s right to take and give life and these terrorists are messing with the laws of nature and Allah. Instead of offering prayers in the holy month of Ramdaan they are killing people! THAT IS SO NOT WHAT ISLAM PREACHES! Ironically Islam means Peace…I really wonder which devil thought them about Islam. Sigh!
May Allah Bless the souls of the innocent killed in Gaza and may they acquire justice!
Thank you for sharing your thoughts Zainbattari !
You are right, Islam by no means teaches terrorism, at any cost. But the people killing Muslims in Gaza are not Muslims…They are Jews. And no one can call them as terrorists because they are super power and they get hold of anyone who accuse them of spreading terrorism.
Ameen to your Duaa ! Thank you 🙂
