Moab Musings on a Wednesday

Disi sunset during stormy weather in February 09

Hubby was listening to the radio before breakfast. “So what’s going on in the world today” … asks me, almost robotically, knowing full well what the miserable answer would be, as I prepared a mini mezzah of olives, zeit and zartar, mutabal and lebaneh … those delectable delights of an Arabian kitchen.

Pause … I glanced over as he removed the headphones from his ears and as if delivering a sermon from a mount, says with all the pomp and ceremony he can easily muster …: “Well, the Israelis pulled out of Jerusalem and the West Bank back to the 1967 borders. Jerusalem is declared an international city of peace. Israel has become a true democracy. No more bombs or rockets exist in Gaza. Hamas is the legitimate ruling authority of Palestine that is now back on the world map. The Iraqis and Afghanis kicked the Americans back to their side of the world; and Islam coexists peacefully with Christianity, Judaism, Baha’ism, Hinduism, Zoroastrianism, Buddhism, and last but not least atheism”

“Happy now?”

Well, yes, actually I was! Nothing wrong with a bit of utopian thinking from time to time, helps to restore a little faith and hope in humanity … for what it’s worth!


PS - I forgot to mention Sufism!
