Banksy in Gaza: Street artist goes undercover in the Strip ~ Raziye Akkoc, The Telegraph, 26 Feb 2015.

The anonymous artist creates a mock travel advert to highlight the plight of the Gaza Strip in a slick video!

It bears the title: “Make this the year YOU discover a new destination.” But this is no ordinary travel advert.

Instead, in a new undercover documentary by Banksy filmed in Gaza, the anonymous street artist depicts real life for ordinary Palestinians.

Satirising the travel advert format, the video begins in the tunnels, telling the audience that their “visit” would be “well away from the tourist track”.

The artists adds: “(Access is via a network of illegal tunnels)”.

Not Theory … Admitted Fact

There are many documented false flag attacks, where a government carries out a terror attack … and then falsely blames its enemy for political purposes.

In the following 42 instances, officials in the government which carried out the attack (or seriously proposed an attack) admits to it, either orally or in writing:

Also in Islam, there are people learning that the dress does not make one a monk…

Al-Must'arib (the vocational Mossarab)

I’m steadfast in my belief that exploring and wandering are the reasons I know I am Muslim. Learning about Buddhism brought me closer to Islam because it taught me what surrendering means, a lesson none of my Islamic studies teachers have been able to teach me even though that’s literally what Islam means. My Islamic studies teachers taught me how to how to obsess about the mundane—about all the things I’m doing incorrectly and therefore my prayers will not be accepted. They taught me guilt. They taught me fear. They taught me that being a good Muslim is difficult. I never quite rejected Islam, I just took a break from going through the motions of prayer out of guilt. I wanted to see if I could be compelled to return to my prayer rug. I did. I returned when I felt like my life was empty without worship. I prayed…

How Iran’s military chiefs operate in Iraq

Fighters from the Shi’ite Badr Brigade militia guard a checkpoint outside the town of Sulaiman Pek

The face stares out from multiple billboards in central Baghdad, a grey-haired general casting a watchful eye across the Iraqi capital. This military commander is not Iraqi, though. He’s Iranian.

The posters are a recent arrival, reflecting the influence Iran now wields in Baghdad.

Iraq is a mainly Arab country. Its citizens, Shi’ite and Sunni Muslims alike, have long mistrusted Iran, the Persian nation to the east. But as Baghdad struggles to fight the Sunni extremist group Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), many Shi’ite Iraqis now look to Iran, a Shi’ite theocracy, as their main ally.

In particular, Iraqi Shi’ites have grown to trust the powerful Iranian-backed militias that have taken charge since the Iraqi army deserted en masse last summer. Dozens of paramilitary groups have united under a secretive branch of…
