So if we listen to various educated Muslim scholars we learn that it’s strictly forbidden for anyone to do “takfir”. What does it mean? You can not judge someone as not being a Muslim. (Equivalent to the christian church’s “excommunication“.) To exclude someone. In Islam the word for a Muslim who abandon faith is “Kufar”. A word terrorists uses to justify widespread killing over the world. Yes, children, Christians, Yezidis and most of all – Muslims.
To call someone “kufar” is to do “takfir”. And to do takfir is not okay. As condemning and killing people never can be okay no matter what.
Wise people calls it “Takfirism”. And it’s genius. The word Islam has nothing to do with what is going on in terms of terror. Islam can not explain it. Not prevent it and not stop it. But we can all work together for a beautiful world.
Not even the American president can tell the difference between Islamism and Islamic. And that’s the guy who “knew more than any general” about terrorism. Why not make things easier for the ones that like to talk but not learn?
It’s about re-create one self. And I do that in silence.
Even though I usually have a million words, there is also the silence. Time to think. Follow the sun into late night. Enjoy the light that’s been gone for eight months of winter. It’s stunning. Close to midnight sun.
This time I sense a colorful firework inside. But there’s no words. No way to describe what is going on. The words don’t want to come out. Don’t want to be said in vain. Rejected or questioned. So they stay. Inside. For another day.
Here’s the people inventing rape rates, no-go-zones, refugee numbers, and gladly contributing to Breitbart articles making Sweden look like a war zone. Here’s the guys that’s working very hard online to make sure that every republican in America knows how “bad” and horrible Sweden is.

Russia in American waters and skies. In the election and among trusted people in the administration. What could that mean? Any ideas? No, they’re not there for the burgers, trust me.
As long as the American president stays in the early stages of campaigning we are all exposed to danger. “The leader of the free world” bashing people, parties, networks, calling Washington a swamp, telling the world what a bad country America is. Bashing over half of it’s population. And remember, it doesn’t matter what party he belongs to. You just don’t do that.
In the eyes of the world, he appears weak. Contradicting himself saying he loves America. Every country watched the speech last night, probably wondering, who’s he fooling?
He’s probably strengthening his enemies in their beliefs that he’s a mad man. Making future diplomatic ties even more difficult. And the allies? Do they dare stand by his side?
If the world consisted of America only – fine. Then he could bash his people as much as he likes until a revolution, but there’s others out there. People that doesn’t care what networks he prefer or who did the most mistakes in the past. The common interest is stability in the world and Mr Trump can’t deliver.
The rallies are hurtful to America and the world. But he doesn’t see that, does he? No, it’s just a ego booster. He feels good doing it. People in the crowd are booing and clapping on the right spots. The language he’s able to understand.
I think most people understands that being president is difficult. Its about making friends, stay friends, go together, and work around the clock. Because somewhere there is early morning and new things happen.
But he’s honest. I give him that. He becomes very predictable when speaking his mind on twitter. You kind of know when he’s going to push the button. What he says – he truly believe. Border walls, Muslims out, no refugees, criminal Mexicans, this and that country is bad, FBI is lying. And we all get to see him taking classes in school of life. Learning, step by step, how things really work. In a enlightened perspective.
Most presidents have pretended to know it all. This one don’t. The presidency have become a road of learning. And what else can he do? A country is not a company. It cannot be run solely by a family. Well, he brought a bunch of people whom he trusted. Not necessarily honest and trustworthy people. But they were loyal. Madly loyal. I guess they provided a cense of security to the president. However, if they’d been loyal to their country and it’s people we’d not have so many of them targeted by Russia. We’d not learned “Alternative facts” or learned about strange massacres that never happened. There’s a lot of misguided loyalty. It might work in the corporate world but not in a country.
By surrounding himself with that type of loyalty the truth rarely become presented. With advisers saying “yes” instead of explaining the truth (that may be inconvenient) we all have to go in the same class. Learning as Mr Trump keeps on tweeting his mind.
Welcome out of the shell Mr Trump. Welcome to the reality. Sometimes there is sunshine and sometimes there’s not. No matter what you’re sent to do on this earth, it must be done without blindfold and shields blinding and forgiving in vain.
My question now is, did he learn enough or is he going to jump the button on North Korea?
North Korea never attracted my attention before. I knew next to nothing. Angry leader, communism, weird rules and that was about it. A blank spot on the map. But, I’ve done some studying and the biggest discovery is:
North Korea is a fascist state. People are starving so the leader can build his guns. People executed if they fail to shed tears in morning of previous leaders. People prohibited from their own opinions. And maybe the worst example: People living in fear of a imminent nuclear attack from America – each day for years. Millions of people suffering a horrible leader.
It’s the old fascist recipe for ruling – keep people in fear. Instigate segregation laws or apartheid laws. In the history there have been fears of Jews, Russians, Africans and today Americans, Muslims and so on. Create propaganda. Or “fake news”. Make believe.
Something about North Korea that would profoundly mess with my personality: The speakers everywhere. Playing music when they think you should go to bed or wake up in the morning. The fusebox would blow for sure. I’ve lived hearing sermons in speakers and I’d take that any day. It’s cultural, it’s given by concern or love or lack of seats in the building. It’s not to annoy anyone.
I’m not sure the North Koreans want to be free. I don’t think they understand the concept of freedom. How can you, if you never saw it?
