Silver Lining

Food for thought



Welcome to my blog. ๐Ÿ™‚ย  I will share articles, news and thoughts about different issues regarding politics, mainly focusing on Israeli crimes, US administration crimes, resistance, and important world news. I realized that when I first opened this blog I had a general idea in mind what I was going to post in it but as time went by I had to change some things and open new blogs for other issues.

I focus on politics because it is an integral part of my everyday life. I live in a political oriented society for even the price of bread is connected to the political views of the numerous factions that govern my country. Well, another good reason is I live in the ever volatile Middle East and one of my neighbors is occupied Palestine.

Iโ€™m a firm believer that no matter what the circumstances one has to know the truth and accept reality. Some people believe if they keep a rosy picture of any situation then they will be happier, maybe that is true as they say ignorance is bliss. On the other hand, how is it possible to improve a situation or solve a problem when you donโ€™t have the correct information needed to change the conditions and cause reform? I may not have the ability to make major improvements in this world but Iโ€™ll try to do my part even if with a word or a picture.

Regarding commets: Any insulting comment will not be accepeted.

This blog is for informational purposes only and no profit is taken from the material published.ย The originalย source of the material is presented.ย 

I hope you enjoy this blog and it gives you some food for thought.

Thanks for reading.

P.S: Regarding my username, the “realistic” part is obvious but I chose “bird” because it is one of my favorite animals that symbolize freedom for me.

    Why are you spamming my blog? ๐Ÿ˜›

    Alhamdulilah khier, I’m fine keeping busy.

    How are you? The missus? The Family? Work? Do you own several companies now? I’m depending on you to tiksah the sou2. When are your products coming here? Then I can tell people I know this man and of course you will give me free stuff (j/k) ๐Ÿ˜† ๐Ÿ˜›

    Thanks for dropping by

  7. realistic bird April 6, 2009 at 2:47 pm


    ๐Ÿ˜ฏ al shu I was hoping to get lots of stuff.

    No brownies for you ๐Ÿ˜›

    Really? I thought you would have forgotten it and moved on, they pulled you in again. Yalla you are near the end like 2 months right?

    I’m still working on the project and I’ve been asked to write something about myself, I find that frustrating I don’t know why.

    I tutor individual students too, got a bright 7th grader. Alhamdulilah.

    I know the smilies are annoying and I canโ€™t upload my own, hope they change that. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ here is a list you can use.

    Thank you so much for adding a link. I appreciate it! Although, it’s become redundant now. :$ I’ve gotten rid of the blog. Please don’t ask why, it’s just gone. :$

    And I just want to apologise for not being able to reply to your last comment. JazakAllah Khayr for the help. ^_^

  9. realistic bird June 2, 2009 at 10:12 pm


    Eh no problem bro ๐Ÿ™‚ you’re welcome. You know if you have something to say or want to post and you don’t want to have your own blog I can add you as an author or contributor if you ever wish to do that.

  10. Alpha Dude June 3, 2009 at 1:39 am

    InshaAllah, if I ever feel like getting into it again, I shall use your blog as a platform. ๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks sis.

    I really like your blogs. I myself have written some anti israeli blogs.

    I found a video which showed that WMD were being stored in England and being used in palestine!

    how do I subscribe to your blog?


  14. realistic bird February 3, 2010 at 6:39 pm

  15. Hikari February 17, 2010 at 11:31 pm

    Selam aleykum sis, how are you!? I always visit your blogs, but haven’t commented in a while.
    This one though, seems very professional. MashaAllah! Well, serious subjects indeed. It has changed, don’t remember it looking like this before? I am very glad you’ve got such a wide blogroll, so much to read!!

  16. realistic bird February 18, 2010 at 6:10 pm

    Dear Editor,

    I wonder whether you would like to publish this – attached. I thought it right to draw one murder and two massacres together. A very good friend recommended your site.

    For truth, reason and justice

  18. realistic bird June 17, 2010 at 3:40 pm

    Thank you for the article, very good link between the two events. I was not able to post it yesterday but I will do it today. ๐Ÿ™‚

  19. Freedom January 8, 2011 at 4:15 am

    Fantastic site please keep up the useful info.

  20. realistic bird January 8, 2011 at 3:59 pm

    Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

  21. This Is Gaza January 20, 2011 at 1:24 am

    You got a very good blog there. Good job

  22. realistic bird January 20, 2011 at 5:16 pm

    Thank you so do you. I liked your writings, thought provoking with a dark humor.

  23. This Is Gaza April 11, 2011 at 10:05 pm

    salaam wa alaikom

    this is my latest article about the situation in Gaza. I would be honoured if you post in on your blog.

  24. realistic bird April 12, 2011 at 4:26 pm

    Yes of course I’ll post it, very moving. Justice always prevails and it will happen for Gaza and all the Palestinians. We support you all the way.

    Thank you

  25. This Is Gaza April 14, 2011 at 5:19 pm

    and by the way, i can’t make tubes appear like your blog. it only happened once and I do not know how.

    can you tell me how to do it. thanks.

  26. realistic bird April 14, 2011 at 8:01 pm

    Haha! The man has no scruples at all. No I just read news about it yesterday, thanks for the video.

    Sure, when you are writing a post and want to add a video click the second symbol in the visual editor after the upload/insert part then a popup will appear, choose the second tab (from url) to add a link then post it.

    take care

  27. realistic bird April 15, 2011 at 4:17 pm

    I will publish your articles but the comment with the link wonโ€™t show here (for organizational purposes only). So keep posting comments with links I will see them or send them by email which ever you prefer.

    I read the official gov. statement in Gaza which coincides with what you said (I will publish it). This is a heinous crime indeed which can only serve the Israelis, hurt the Palestinians and the people trying to help them.

    Thanks again, wasalaam

  28. Muslim American May 8, 2011 at 6:48 am

    I am a Muslim American have been pushing for action agaist Israel on Facebook for over a month and a half with a page calling for it. I fully believe that Israel must be removed if the Palestinians are to have peace, at least that is the start of it. I was lucky enough to see the first page calling for the revolution a few days before Facebook took it down. I will do what I can to make Israel fiction, this is the best chance we’ve had in over 35 years to stop their oppression. I am not going to let that go to waste. Lets end the Arab-Israeli conflict once and for all. I believe we can win and that we do have that power if we unite and stand for that goal. They wont give it up peacefuly, so be it. We wont let this shameful act of terror against Palestinians contiune.

  29. realistic bird May 8, 2011 at 3:54 pm


    We are all in the same struggle to end the oppression and help the Palestinians return their rights.


  30. Muslim American May 10, 2011 at 9:28 am

    Salam, then may we complete it, with the help of god!! inshaallah.

  31. realistic bird May 10, 2011 at 3:58 pm

    Insha’Allah ๐Ÿ™‚
