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 the freedom to express anything that I want to speak of or share, or perhaps whatever the political 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 are more fun, pertain to my interests and love for women, or perhaps some other subject outside of both the political and social arena of politics and women.

In fact, on a personal note regarding what some sometimes call ‘beautiful flowers’, “women”: 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 their soul, as well as the beauty of the eye, all the way to the beauty of their heart. I’ve always been a ‘lover’ with regards to women and have always been able to appreciate their ever gentle touch from the tip of their well-manicured fingernails while being mesmerized by their enticing sensual, exotic perfume, that only a classy European woman can somehow flaunt as being a part of her everyday enigma, to which almost always entices me for more.  It is this, of which by my belief is that only a European woman can exude.

Why do I have such a preference? Well, I guess my growing up in Brooklyn Heights, New York City, and being surrounded by ‘Americans’, for all my life, and all the maltreatment that I endured whether be from relatives within the family (after my father died in 2001) or those kids who I was surrounded with while in prep school: Rumsey Hall School (1981-1982), Vermont Academy (1983-1985), and Northfield Mount Hermon (1985-1987).

It wasn’t until I was 13 years old when I first traveled to Europe for a school Ski trip in March 1982. I went to Bormio, Italy.  It was then that I  realized that International Cultures, and people from other parts of the world. were different than ‘Americans’. In my view, have a lot more class, more respect to ‘all’ people and frankly, more ‘open’ to meeting new people, and when you add all those qualities, they do add up to having a better and more positive outcome in the end with respect to getting to know new people for the first time outside of your maternal setting.  Plus on a lighter note, in my opinion, Europeans are better ‘looking’ and in better shape as well, and of course, we can’t forget the accent they may have depending on the country you’re in.  I guess I could say that from my personal experience  ‘Americans’ are more rigid, mean, and spiteful, hurtful, and have no problem literally going out of their way to do someone ‘harm’, for them to reap in some kind of benefit. Sadly, I learned that on a personal note from a sibling after my Dad died. Then, of course, we can’t forget that Americans are filled with greed and evil. Yes, that too, I also learned the hard way personally, thanks to a sibling who literally and physically went out of their way and did permanent harm to me and my financial future.

Now you perhaps see a pattern as to why I do not like Americans, nor care for their ‘self-righteous attitude’ let alone their abuse that they so often shell out to me throughout my years. It is Europe, the atmosphere, the culture, the people, the languages, the different lifestyle, that with me at least; gives me the sense of safety, purpose, and confidence that USA seems to drain out of me. To me, the United States is a country that cares of no one. Not one. Unless ‘those’ who they ‘deem’ as their ‘equal’. Or in laymen’s terms, rich, and above the laws that the slave, little people must not be anywhere near. And it is this knowledge, that I know all too well about the United States as to why it is a country that only gives poor health, to those who have no chance of being treated equally. If you desire “equality”, U.S is not the place for you.  It is in Europe, where you will be given more opportunity, to be truly ‘free’, with regards to what I desire, and from all my personal experiences and thankfully, knowledge from all those years growing up while my Dad was alive and all that was ‘in front of me’, I know Europe, almost any part of Europe is better than any piece of dirt that is on American soil.

I am someone who appreciates all cultures that are foreign to most. Again, perhaps it was due to my background growing up, especially with my father Roy being an International Businessman his entire life. What’s more interesting is, I have a huge desire for and admiration for the Arab/Muslim person & culture. 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/Arab 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, as I mentioned earlier; the fact that I was lucky enough to start at the ripe age of 13, to travel, and learn about cultures, languages, different ways of life, it was this early start, that obviously stayed with me ever since, and will for the rest of my life. In fact, it is the pendulum that I use within my own knowledge when seeing differences in all areas of news, or everyday life.

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/connection’.  Whether this tie/connection was from when my Dad was alive and his background, and contacts, or from since his passing and from those connections that I have that are connected to prestigious and powerful International Business figures. Either way, if something is breaking news, regarding the Middle East, or something like this, I will have many interests in this area and be depending on the ‘topic’, it could be quite personal.

I am aware that I am unlike most people anywhere on the planet. I know people who 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…

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 online, and of course always keeping up to date with what is going on in the world, especially pertaining to the recent current events within the Middle East: Palestine, Syria, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, etc…

With regards to ‘Writing’: I have not only this blog, but I also keep a journal.  It’s over 13,000 pages long, and over 10+ years of information.

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 saving of her life when I was 12 years old, some 5 days before my 13th Birthday – my mom was diagnosed with having an ‘attack’ of the brain stem called: Viral Encephalitis, making her a quadriplegic and me being her full time 24/7 caretaker, since Dad died. And then my sister died when I was 13 years old and she was 16, seven months after my mom’s ‘attack’. 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!  🙂
