"The way I see it" has moved to another Blogging Platform.
Find me at My New BLOG.
This is my second move. This new Blog is still a "work in progress" in terms of design, colors etc. Content is complete though. This blog and my wordpress blog will remain as they are.
My new RSS FEED. (http://www.thetobril.com/feed/)
OR, you could use the old Feed Burner Feeds and chicklets on the left sidebar.

… but the past couple of days have been pretty weird.
For one thing, over this past working week, and on the ride home in a taxi cab everyday, I’ve always come across this old woman, the same old woman, at various points of the route home and she always extends her hand to stop the cab driver and as we drive past I always manage to hear her say: El sayeda!
So while doing my thing, surfing the Internet today, I came across this title to a blog post that I had subscribed to: “Egyptian Blogger Asks the Real Questions“.
I thought to myself: cool.
Clicked on the title, was taken to the blog’s address, started reading the story and discovered that the Egyptian blogger in question was Sandmonkey, and no other!

I haven't commented at all on the current situation in the Middle East; the Israeli "invasion" of Gaza or Southern Lebanon. It's because I feel that I don't have anything new or original to add to the discussion. That and the fact that I try not to use my blog as a medium where I criticize other bloggers' views.
I did find a debate, or discussion if you will, which I feel strongly enough towards that the urge to write something would not dissipate however much I willed it to. I am, of course, talking about the criticism of Hezbollah, by Arabs, in the past three weeks or so.
First of all, let me (for the umpteenth time) clearly say that I am staunchly anti-islamist when it comes to politics. Basically the day will not come that I would support an Islamic government over a secular one... no matter what.
Having said I wish to make it clear that I am 100% behind Hezbollah in the current endeavour. This stems from many reasons, of which I will list the most important to me:

Recently had a little chat about blogging with a better-known Blogger who resides in Egypt. I initiated the conversation by asking: how do you know what to post on your blog?
We discussed this for a bit and I complained that I did not want this blog to be a personal blog. He asked me why I didn’t and I responded by saying that there were too many people who might read this blog and read things I just didn’t want them to read.
