Italy, never lived where my parents are from, only stayed in italy a while, and then england, but never really felt like england is home, I've always had some sort of racism in the background.

Not having a place to call home aint that bad though, I mean, it makes it easier to realise that this world is only temporary.

The U.S.A. - I was born in Boston, Massachusetts and live on Cape Cod. It's a nutty kind of existence. Every year it swings your life into some pretty twisted extremes. The place has awesome beaches and a cool afternoon sea-breeze, so it gets crowded here, to the point where you can barely breath in the summer much less drive. Everyone comes here to let loose and go nuts... one ten week long party! But the place empties out in the autumn, much to our relief, and before you know it, there's barely a soul to be found here. It sounds great but it can be depressing too since it's so dark, bleak and bitter during the winter months.

I brought my own own fire and ice to even out the odds, but I've seen the extreme changes in environment here, reduce some of the most disciplined people to drunks in as little as three years.

But it makes for some pretty pictures of Paradise.



Eastham: A quaint little drinking village with a slight fishing problem.

Assalaamu alaikum,
I live in Pakistan, but i was born in England and i go there often, but i love my country even though there is corruption and what not going on!!

I used to love england/London but now.......... i dunno, since i started my niqab thingy everything changed, i stopped doing lots of things that where wrong and then i lived there one year recently and i realized how hard it is going out, and also rearing children islamiclly is harder, i feel more grateful here in Pakistan for everything I have and when i see the poor people, i get this feeling of sympathy and love for them.

I dont hate England coz my mums side live there and i go there every summer but i dont feel comfortable there anymore.

Yeah I understand that. I'd rather never return to Chechnya rather than returning to a Russian occupied Chechnya. Just that I haven't been to my country for 7 years now. Ok sure not being able to go to your country but knowing that that beautiful place is being destroyed.:cry: Plus I haven't seen my relatives for 7 years. Some of my relatives and friends have died and I haven't managed to see them one last time. That's why I'm being patient but it's really hard...

Ive seen lots of pictures of Ichkeria, it is a beautiful country - its sad what the Russian dogs are doing to the people and the country...

Whats worse is the way Muslims and Muslim groups like Hamas betray brothers and sisters Chechnya and strike deals with Russia - these people are low.

In the US there is much Humor about Texas. For a long time Texas was the largest State and Texans used to brag about things being bigger in Texas.

Alaska is roughly 2 and 1/2 times the size of Texas and it has stolen our bragging rights, so we just get to pick on the lower 48 States. (But we figure that once all the ice melts Alaska will be smaller than some of our Texas counties)

Malaysia is a beautiful country. If I was still able to travel I would love to go there. I've only seen it from the air. Please do post some pictures.

Very small indeed.... during sukarno's period, Indonesia opposed the independent of Malaysia and want it to be inserted as part of Indonesia... they even claimed that "Malaysia is British proxy in Southeast Asia".

But, now both of us Malaysians and Indonesians are OK.

Sister, actualy I know what the answer of my question.

Not only in this forum, looking for Indonesians in other ENGLISH Islamic forum is difficult. That is not because they have yet discover this forum or another English Islamic forum. When I visited Indonesians Islamic forum, I found they knew many English language Islamic forum in web, and sometime they visited these forums, they read many posts and even they made a discussion about posts in some English Islamic forum.
But why they never joined ?. That because, for many Indonesian, English is a 'scary language'. A tipicaly of Indonesian people is, they usually have low esteem and feel inferior if they must speak English. If you read posts of some Indonesians you can find they said "My English is not good".
I had an interested to joined this forum since the first time I found it, but I waited one month before I registered because I felt inferior with my English. And after I had registered, I need 24 hours to made my first post in introduction section.:D

In Indonesia is not difficult to find Muslims people who can not speak English but can speak in verry good Arabic. They are graduates from Islamic schools.

I have visited an English language culture (non religious) forum, and I found many Indonesians. But majority of them are non-muslims. No wonder, those non-muslims were prepared to study in foreign countries.
I often find Indonesian learn English in an English course but never learn longer than 3 months or even 2 weeks. This is a fact.

Oftenly, my friends ask me " How can you joined in English language forum if your English is not good ? ".
And I always answer " I know my English is bad, but that is not a problem. They always understand why I am talking about ".
Frankly, I have two reasons why I joined in LI. First, I want to meet my Muslim brother and sister from other countries. Second, I want to learn English.

Thanks for your response, Sister. Jazaka Allahu khairan.

I am wondering the same... we had an active Indonesian member years ago, Asyur An Nagi... but he died in a tragic accident .. May Allah bless his soul...

He's Javanese and a Muslim convert... and just married to a Malaysian. His little brother, Pramudito informed us about his death...

I think now you're the only active Indonesian forummer here...

I might be the only active Malaysian forummer... I wonder why syilla and Muslim Knight are not here frequently... but both of them are quite active on facebook.

I dont know why Indonesians are lazzy to learn English seriously except people who want to go to foreign countries.
And even we make some jokes about our 'broken English' such as "Little little sih, I can" or "I am good good only" or "My salary no up up".

Dont you know ? in a blog I read an Indonesian wrote " Look at Malaysian, they say they have a national language but they always proud to speak English".

One weird thing about Malaysians... when a Malaysian meet another Malaysian abroad... automatically both of them will be talking in English..

In fact, most Malaysian professionals, talk in English.

In fact, many Malaysians mix English and Malaysian when talking...:exhausted

And the kids at schools have to learn Mathematics and Science subjects in English...

Like it or not, English Language is here to stay.... like forever... maybe because our nation is a member of the British Commonwealth.

Proper English Grammar seems to be a dieing skill among many of us native English speakers. Many of us fall into the trap of speaking non-standard or colloquial/slang English and/or any of the local dialects rather then staying with the traditional standard English, which is supposed to be taught in the schools, but is often poorly taught.

So you are correct, many English speakers, do not speak or write proper English.

I have many friend who active in internet and I often invite along them.
"Friends, try to join English discusion, or at least chating with foreigner. Dont worry with your bad English, they always understand and they will not mock you. Discuss or chat with people from other countries is a good chance for improve your English"
And may friends always replies "I shall" or "InshaAllah" but they still discuss or chating only in Indonesian language.
Maybe I must recognize them to my another friend. he was a driver, low educated, not rich but he had visited USA, Japan, Hongkong and Thailand because he speaks english very well. Unfortunately, he has moved and I dont know his new adress.

I saw a news report on it, it's about $1000 and you spit in a tube and mail it to california and they will tell you what diseases your most prone to and your ancestry. But I imagine it will be some time before I have an extra $1000 for that :p

I now live in the Republic of Lakotah

I was living in the USA.

However, the Sioux have now severed all treaties with the USA and we have now declared independence and claim parts of the Dakotas, Nebraska, Montana and Wyoming as the Republic of Lakotah. Although, the government is sort of chuckling at us, we are dead serious and we will not recognize the wasichu government of the USA. We are doing our best to assert our independence peacefully, but if need be, we will have another stand off at Wounded Knee and this time the Blue Coats will have to bury all of the Lakotah, as this will remain Lakotah land as long as one Lakotah remains standing.

Although the Lakotah withdrew from all treaties in 2007, we have just now become fully organized and have announced our declaration of being an independent nation.

Lakota Indians Withdraw Treaties Signed With U.S. 150 Years Ago

Thursday, December 20, 2007



WASHINGTON — The Lakota Indians, who gave the world legendary warriors Sitting Bull and Crazy Horse, have withdrawn from treaties with the United States.

"We are no longer citizens of the United States of America and all those who live in the five-state area that encompasses our country are free to join us,'' long-time Indian rights activist Russell Means said.

A delegation of Lakota leaders has delivered a message to the State Department, and said they were unilaterally withdrawing from treaties they signed with the federal government of the U.S., some of them more than 150 years old.

The group also visited the Bolivian, Chilean, South African and Venezuelan embassies, and would continue on their diplomatic mission and take it overseas in the coming weeks and months.

Lakota country includes parts of the states of Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana and Wyoming.

The new country would issue its own passports and driving licences, and living there would be tax-free - provided residents renounce their U.S. citizenship, Mr Means said.

The treaties signed with the U.S. were merely "worthless words on worthless paper," the Lakota freedom activists said.

Withdrawing from the treaties was entirely legal, Means said.

"This is according to the laws of the United States, specifically article six of the constitution,'' which states that treaties are the supreme law of the land, he said.

"It is also within the laws on treaties passed at the Vienna Convention and put into effect by the US and the rest of the international community in 1980. We are legally within our rights to be free and independent,'' said Means.

The Lakota relaunched their journey to freedom in 1974, when they drafted a declaration of continuing independence — an overt play on the title of the United States' Declaration of Independence from England.

Thirty-three years have elapsed since then because "it takes critical mass to combat colonialism and we wanted to make sure that all our ducks were in a row,'' Means said.

One duck moved into place in September, when the United Nations adopted a non-binding declaration on the rights of indigenous peoples — despite opposition from the United States, which said it clashed with its own laws.

"We have 33 treaties with the United States that they have not lived by. They continue to take our land, our water, our children,'' Phyllis Young, who helped organize the first international conference on indigenous rights in Geneva in 1977, told the news conference.

The U.S. "annexation'' of native American land has resulted in once proud tribes such as the Lakota becoming mere "facsimiles of white people,'' said Means.

Oppression at the hands of the U.S. government has taken its toll on the Lakota, whose men have one of the shortest life expectancies - less than 44 years - in the world.

Lakota teen suicides are 150 per cent above the norm for the U.S.; infant mortality is five times higher than the U.S. average; and unemployment is rife, according to the Lakota freedom movement's website.
Map of the Republic of Lakotah. Gold area indicates boundaries that could be taken back if all treaties with the Lakota People and the United States are withdrawn. Red and maroon areas indicate current boundaries.

I currently live in the red area of the map. That is Reservation land and technically was not under Federal Law anyhow. So this will have little change for me except I am taking an active role in the recognition of RoL as an independent nation

I am a Punjabi (native of Punjab, one of most ancient lands of South Asia) living in Canada. Before that I lived in Saudi Arabia for most of my life. I am not patriotic about any country. I just prefer sticking my heritage and culture, within the confines of Islam i.e. food, language, dress and mannerisms. I've tried food from other distant cultures (Italian pasta, Chinese sushi and what not) but they could not stimulate my taste buds as much.

The Sioux can be a touch hot headed. In the original treaty the reservation was supposed to be what are now the States of Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana and Wyoming. But after the Wounded Knee massacre of 1890 the reservations were broken down into what is red in the map. and even in there the only parts that have not been intruded upon are the dark colored areas which have been divided into Pine Ridge, Lower Brule, Cheyenne River, Sisseton-Wahpeton and Standing Rock. The last serious attempt to reclaim the land was in 1973 and ended with the Stand off at Wounded Knee resulting in the death of 3 FBI agents and I forgot how many Sioux. Leonierd Peltier was charged with murder for the deaths of the FBI agents. But, the standoff was at Wounded Knee on Pine ridge and the land is reservation and by treaty under tribal law the FBI agents had no authority on the rez and Peltier should have been tried under tribal not federal law.

The new Push on demanding independence is in hopes of the Rez being recognized as being Lakotah land. There is actually little hope of getting all the land wanted. But the reason for demanding that is because that is what the Lakotah were recognized as the boundaries established under the last treaty. But, the main goal is to establish once and for all the Rez land is not under USA jurisdiction. The timing to make the Push now is because both Texas and Vermont are scheduled to bring up a proposal of withdrawing from the US in the State Legislatures. In hopes the publicity will bring notice to the Republic of Lakotah and force honoring of the last Treaty. But, if they refuse to honor the treaty, the tribe will declare war on the USA and hope everything will resolve Peacefully.

Someday if I have extra money I wanna get one of those DNA tests that tell you about your ancestry, I find those interesting.
Do it!!! You never know what kind of dna you are carrying around. DNAtribes has one for about $200.00. I took the test and had a huge surprise.

Even though my known ancestry primarily comes out of England, Denmark, France and Germany, my DNA closest matches were in the middle east. Of the top 5 population matches, 4 were in the middle east (UAE and Oman). My region scores were Arabia, not Europe, as you would expect looking at me (fair skin, light hair).

It completely blew me away. It was after I got my test scores back that I started studying Arabic and Islam. I knew nothing about either until I got the DNA results, then I thought it might be interesting to learn more about Islam.

oh mashallah. What a wild way for Allah to introduce you to Islam. Wonder when your ancestry moved to europe. Maybe some of your ancestors migrated to muslim spain in the dark ages, how interesting.
Yep. Pretty wild. I think all of our ancestors did a lot of moving around. I highly recommend that anyone look into DNA testing. It opens up a whole new world.

There is proverb in Indonesia. "Rambut sama hitam, pendapat berbeda" (Hairs are black, opinion is different). That's because all Indonesian have black hairs and also dark eyes. And Indonesians are not too different than native South American.

Have you ever been to Canada?
Not yet. But, Insha Allah.

I currently live in the red area of the map. That is Reservation land and technically was not under Federal Law anyhow. So this will have little change for me except I am taking an active role in the recognition of RoL as an independent nation


Very interesting, never herd of this land's story before.....

Anyways, I'm from Pak-istan .....

Fore-fore fathers from my father's side were "sikh" in india who converted to Islam....

while my mother's side has been muslim since ever..... as far as we can trace back ...... Grandfather of my mother's father(my grand'pa) used to teach Quran to "jinns"..... would u believe that.....

I know her but I dont listen to her songs.I dont know any new songs of her.
But there is an interesting story which reflects the contradiction of daily life in Turkey.I actually overheard this.The vice manager at the school I work was talking to a friend of him.He told this as an example of the contradiction of believers in Turkey.He said Sibel Can prays five salahs a day.I couldn't believe because she seems very different on the stage when singing in improper clothes.But who knows?Maybe he was right maybe he was wrong.But he sounded sure about his claim.

Gooooooo Buckeyes!;D Believe it or not.....I think i am the only man in "Ahmed_eee_ka" that doesn't watch sports:embarrass:embarrass

I will watch soccer or for us foreigners real "football" I love watching Italy play!:D

I will watch Cricket matches sometimes with my father in law. When he went to med school in India(where he's from) he was a good bowler:D
