About

As a kid, I grew up being surrounded by Politics and International Affairs for as long as I can remember. This was in part due to my father, and all his personal dealings and business connections that he had, as he made his living. Yet, despite all this in the background going on every day of my life, while growing up; I was both lucky to some extent and unlucky in other ways. I will explain in more detail later on.

I figure that this blog is my way of writing and sharing a wide variety of topics, allowing myself freedom to express anything that I want to speak of or share, or perhaps whatever the headlines of the world may be at the time. Some of the articles I have written may come across more serious than others. While some of the other topics I have spoken about or mentioned here, pertain to my interests in women. In fact, on a personal note: I have always preferred European women. Whether French, Italian, or Czech, or Hungarian, or Serbian, or the ‘Olive’ tone of Algerian, or Moroccan, or Tunisian etc… A wide variety of Nationalities I am able to appreciate. In the aspect of religion, I can accept all women regardless; whether Christian, Jewish, or Muslim or non-practicing. To me, it’s the combination of the beauty of the soul, from the beauty to the eye, all the way to the beauty of the heart. I’ve always been a ‘lover’ with regards to women, for as long as I can remember.

Why do I have such a preference? Well, I guess my growing up in Brooklyn Heights, New York, and being surrounded by ‘Americans’, for all my years, and all the maltreatment that I endured whether be from relatives within the family, or those in school. I guess the fact that I had the ability to travel around the world at such a young age; 13, and ever since I realized that International Cultures, and people are different than ‘Americans’ and frankly in my view, have a lot more class, more respect to ‘all’ people and frankly, better looking and in better shape as well. I guess I could say that ‘Americans’ are more rigid, mean, and spiteful and tend to be more concerned with money, and their ‘clicks’ with respect to their friends, and most of all…are frankly more concerned with themselves while caring nothing for others. Whereas, Europeans and Non-Americans actually most often don’t understand how ‘Americans’ are the way they are. And uh, no… this is ‘not’ a compliment to Americans! Plus on a personal note, I have been more abused by ‘Americans’, thus why I really do ‘not’ care for them at all! (at least the ones who I have known personally, and from school, let alone relatives as well etc…)

I am someone who appreciates all cultures that are foreign to most. Again, perhaps it was my background growing up. What’s more interesting is, I have a huge desire for and admiration for the Arab/Muslim person. Not sure really, why?  But, again, whether it would be growing up with my father, who often would be on the phone with his International Business figures/friends like: Salah Sharaf, or Khashoggi, or Ghorbanifar, or Rakesh Saxsena, or King Fahd, Roger Tamraz, Cyrus Hashemi, or others.  These ‘names’ are all ‘familiar’ to me. It’s what I was used to hearing as a kid growing up let alone as an adult as well.

However, looking back at everything, I am very happy that I grew up in the way I did, at least with regards to this ‘history’. Thanks to my father, I have become more knowledgeable with regards to Middle East Politics and overall politics in general, and I feel this gives me an edge over most people, with regards to being more educated and understanding to the world and its chaos that the news media speaks about almost on a daily basis.  However, just being lucky enough to travel all over the world, and beginning this at the ripe age of 13, has helped me to become more appreciative of languages and cultures and a different way of life, compared to being in the U.S! Something that I really appreciate most of all with regards to Europe, are all the different languages.

The top languages I appreciate the most are: French, Italian, Hungarian, Czech and Serbian and Arabic. Can I speak all of those? Sadly, no. However, I know more French than any of the others, and know very little Italian and bits and pieces of Czech and Hungarian. Yet, whether I am listening to radio stations of any of those languages, (and I could listen to them for hours on end, and never get bored.)  my ability to read French is better than any of the other languages, and speaking it; while it’s really ‘not’ great, but it’s better than any other foreign language – but again, I ‘appreciate’ which each language has to offer.

This blog centers on my overall broad Interests pertaining to International Politics and Worldly Events – with a slight bias to those parts  of the Globe and or Topics, where I may have had some kind of ‘inner’ personal relationship or ‘tie’ {in most cases through my Dad, or in few cases within my own personal friends/contacts regarding certain parts of the world, politically speaking etc…} to a particular prestigious person, or part of the world where my Interests of either Middle East; Palestine/Gaza, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Iran, Libya may be prevalent, or other general news that may be the headline of the day or something etc…Although, I am interested with all avenues of Politics, however; my preference is regarding the Middle East most of all.

I am aware that I am unlike most people anywhere on the planet. I know people personally, who at one time may have personally ‘knew’ (if someone is no longer alive) or still knows (if they are alive still…) such prominent figures, such as: Yassar Arafat,  Mouammar Kadhafi, The Shah of Iran, Shimon Peres, Ariel Sharon, Emir of Kuwait, King Fahd of The Saudi Royal Family, Prince Faisal, Sultan of Brunei, and others…

I am grateful in one sense that ‘this life style’ was something that I ‘grew up’ with. Because, as an older person in ‘our world today’, I feel I have a much better grasp and clearer understanding to ‘why’ the world is the way it is as of now in 2017.

Another part you will learn about me, is that I am absolutely 100% Pro-Palestinian! It angers me deeply with how their situation is as of today, let alone how its been for all these past decades of abuses and loss of life they/Palestinians have suffered over the occupation, during their struggle for freedom of their own land sans the Illegal Occupation of Ramallah/Gaza/Palestine. Interestingly enough, my personal friend was with Arafat in 1994, when he picked up his Nobel Peace Prize. I never did meet him in person, he surely would’ve been my favorite #1 choice of prominent person to meet.  It is sad to think that he was illegally murdered/poisoned by evil Israel.

My other interests are: Music, Writing, working on line, and of course always keeping up to date with what is going on in the world, especially pertaining to the recent current events; Middle East, Syria, Palestine, and other headlines as well and with regards to ‘enjoyment’, I love to keep up to date with regards to what ‘types of music’ and or ‘singers/groups’ are ‘hits’ within Europe and Russia.

The kind of Music I prefer would be considered: Euro Pop, Italo Disco, Italo Pop, French Pop, Russian/Dance/Club etc… most of which would also depend on my mood and other factors. Some singers & groups that I prefer and love are: Axelle Red, Patricia Kaas, Lara Fabian (all three of whom I saw in Concert in Montréal. I also sort of, kind of met Axelle Red in person at a concert while sitting in the front row during a concert in Summer 2000. I gave her a Greeting Card in both English and French and a Rose. She stopped everything, took about 3-4 minutes to read all I wrote, and even said; “Thank You, very much” as the crowd went wild!) Other singers or groups I like are: Akcent, Spagna, Silver Pozzoli, Alexandra Stan, Sak Noel, Playahitty, Eros Ramazzatti, Inna, Edward Maya, Alizée, Anggun, Bad Boys Blue, Arash, Axel Bauer, Chicane, Calogero, Chris Rea, Cock Robin, David Tavaré, Dr Alban, Étienne Daho, Fragma, Falco, Gérald de Palmas, Imagination, Laurent Voulzy, Level 42, Lewron Orchestra, Manu Chao, Modern Talking, Thomas Anders, Murray Head, Mylène Farmer, Patrick Hernandez, Pet Shop Boys, Sandra, Sophie Ellis Bexter, Talk Talk, The Twins, Yannick Noah, Youssou N’Dour, Zucchero etc… and many, many more etc…

I hope as you are reading all of this about me, you are beginning to get a little better understanding of me, my history, and the person I really am within. In many ways, I was kind of lucky to be brought up within a family where my father at one time in his life became an International Political Figure himself, thanks to his career, and of course thanks to his personal contacts as well and this allowed me to be immersed with so much more knowledge than the average person anywhere, that I have learned a much better understanding of what Is going on within today’s world.

Yet, despite my many personal losses in life from my mom becoming handicap and my sister dying when I was 13 years old and she was 16. When my Dad died, my Mom and I have been treated terribly by another ‘relative’ so much so, that laws were broken by this person to harm us and our ability to care for ourselves financially. Thanks to this evil, sick, demented, callous, crook of a relative and all that they did to us after my father’s death, every day ‘life’ is an on-going struggle. Despite at one time attempting to receive justice, we only learned that U.S.A does ‘not’ allow justice for the ‘every day typical person’! No. U.S.A is a place where crooks and thieves can flourish. And the ‘little guy’ is left to die.

Yes, a lot of terrible things have occurred to me and my handicap Mom since Dad died. Thank God she is still alive, and I am blessed that I am the only family member she has left who loves her and cares for her, while I continue to try to reach my goals and desires as well. {although, thanks to being trapped within such a crooked country like U.S.A, I doubt my goals will ever be reached.}

I thank you for taking the time to read a little about me, while at the same time getting a little feel about what this blog will have to offer. This blog is for me and only me, and I only write about things that both interest me, and or have affected me one way or another in my life, thus making me who I am today. Thank you for your time – And thank you for taking time to learn a little more about me!  🙂
