Self-protective moral contortions and distortions, compartmentalized thinking, cynicism and hypocrisy are not restricted to the atheistic left but such cognitive and moral aberrations are certainly in evidence in contemporary progressive circles. Making matters worse, in the absence of actual religion, social and political causes have a tendency to become cults, or at least vehicles for cultish behavior. In this connection, the behavior of climate change activists and their followers has often been remarked upon. Committed environmentalists often seem curiously uninterested in understanding the actual impact of various kinds of activities and processes.
Half the nineties, I traveled, together with my girl friend to Hurgada in Egypt. The first night in the hotel we were approached by 2 animators. They asked us if we wanted to go out with them. Every single night during our stay they asked us the same question, we refused every time again, until the last night of our stay.
We visit a bar with them, that is next to the hotel. As soon as we arrived there, only one of the 2 animators was there.
He was very courteous and used all his charme to seduce me. Before we went back home he asked for my address and telephonenumber. He accompanied us to the airport. Two days later he called me and told me that he missed me so much, he was sick because of it. He asked me to return as quick as possible.
After a few months, I returned to Hurgada. At that point in time I just broke up with my boy friend and lived alone. I stayed in the same hotel as before and he was there as well.
He did spent all his free time with me. I fell in love, it was a beautiful holiday and he made me feel like a real woman. He wanted to introduce me to his family.
This gave me the impression that he was honest and really loved me. We agreed, that when I would come the next time, we would go visit his parents in Luxor. In between my holidays in Egypt we wrote and called eachother a lot. Later on we could get married in the official way, I agreed.
Two years later, I did visit him 12 times by then and he did spent 1 month in the Netherlands, we got officialy married in Luxor.
Six months later he came to Holland. I paid for everything, because he had nothing. We planned to stay in Holland for several years to earn some money and then move to Egypt. He was studieing, I worked.
After he had lived here for more than six months, he thought that renting a house, was a waste of money and he suggested we should buy a house. All this with the money I had from an inheritance and a small loan.
Later on we could then sell the house and with that money buy something in Egypt. I agreed, and as we were officialy married, the house would be his property as well as mine. After he finished his studies, he worked for a few years at different places, but it never lasted long. In that period he spent more time at home, than at work.
He prefered to be his own boss, so we started our own business. That means it was his business, a small barbershop for men. As we were married, I had to sign together with him on all the paperwork; rent of the building, loans, etc. If things would go wrong I would bear the burden, but I trusted and supported him.
From that moment onwards he changed completely, he became a real horror. At first he had a staff working for him.
After work he was going out with the staff.“Intermarket Securities Limited (IMS), the flagship of the Intermarket Group, came into its current corporate structure post the acquisition of ING Barings Pakistan operations in the early s.
Here’s my glowing orb meme. Of course to get the punch line its necessary to understand that sorcery and witchcraft are indeed punishable by law– (i think its by beheading) in the Kingdom, where the constitution is the Quran and the consenual rule of law is shariah.
Moreover several cultural features may be required to work together to achieve particular outcomes - and the adoption of any one apparently advantageous feature in isolation may not achieve much, thus inviting the view that there is something wrong with a particular race.
Question: I offer my Tahajjud Salāh just 10 min. before the Fajr Salāh. Is this permissible and accepted? Is it necessary for a person to sleep and wake up to offer Tahajjud Salāh or even if he is awake till 1 or 2 at night he can offer Tahajjud and sleep?
