“Life Is Very Hard. The Only People Who Really Live Are Those Who Are Harder Than Life Itself.”

Zero 4

There are hundreds of definitions about ‘Life,’ but none gives me its true meaning, than this quote by author Nawal El Salaawi, “Life is very hard. The only people who really live are those who are harder than life itself.”  But who is this woman?

Nawal El Saadiaw has been pilloried, censored, imprisoned and exiled for her refusal to accept the oppression imposed on women by gender and class.

In her life and in her writings, this struggle against sexual discrimination has always been linked to a struggle against all forms of oppression: religious, racial, colonial and neo-colonial.

In 1969, she published her first work of non-fiction, Women and Sex ; in 1972, her writings and her struggles led to her dismissal from her job.

From then on there was no respite; imprisonment under Sadat in 1981 was the culmination of the long war she had fought for Egyptian women’s social and intellectual freedom. A Daughter of Isis is the autobiography of this extraordinary woman.

Author Nawal El Salaawi

Zero 5Nawal El Saadawi, also spelled Nawāl al-Saʿdāwī   (born Oct. 27, 1931, Kafr Ṭaḥlah, Egypt), Egyptian public health physician, psychiatrist, author, and advocate of women’s rights. Sometimes described as “the Simone de Beauvoir of the Arab world,” El Saadawi was a feminist whose writings and professional career were dedicated to political and sexual rights for women.El Saadawi was educated at Cairo University (M.D., 1955), Columbia University in New York (M.P.H., 1966), and ʿAyn Shams University in Cairo (where she performed psychiatric research in 1972–74). In 1955–65 she worked as a physician at Cairo University and in the Egyptian ministry of health, and in 1966 she became the director-general of the health education department within the ministry.

In 1968 she founded Health magazine, which was shut down by Egyptian authorities several years later, and in 1972 she was expelled from her professional position in the ministry of health because of her book Al-marʾah wa al-jins (1969; Women and Sex), which was condemned by religious and political authorities.

El Saadawi was jailed in September 1981, and during the two months of her imprisonment she wrote Mudhakkirāt fī sijn al-nisāʾ (1984; Memoirs from the Women’s Prison) on a roll of toilet paper using a smuggled cosmetic pencil.

In 1982 El Saadawi founded the Arab Women’s Solidarity Association (AWSA) and later served as editor of the organization’s publication, Al-nūn. In 1991 the government closed down Al-nūn and then, several months later, AWSA itself. Due to her outspoken views, El Saadawi continued to face frequent legal challenges from political and religious opponents, including accusations of apostasy.

In 2002 a legal attempt was made by an Islamist lawyer to forcibly divorce her from her husband, and in May 2008 she won a case that had been brought against her by al-Azhar University, the major centre of Islamic learning, that included charges of apostasy and heresy.

El Saadawi’s novels, short stories, and nonfiction deal chiefly with the status of Arab women, as inMudhakkirāt tabībah (1960; Memoirs of a Woman Doctor), Al-khayt wa al-jidār (1972; The Thread and the Wall), Al-wajh al-ʿarī lī al-marʾah al-arabiyyah (1977; The Hidden Face of Eve: Women in the Arab World), Al-ḥubb fī zaman al-nafṭ (1993; Love in the Kingdom of Oil), and Al-riwāyah (2004; The Novel).

The oppression of women by men through religion is the underlying theme of El Saadawi’s novel set in a mental institution, Jannāt wa Iblīs (1992; Jannāt and Iblīs). The female protagonists are Jannāt, whose name is the plural of the Arabic word for paradise, and Iblīs, whose name refers to the devil.

Hitler’s Evil Plan Couldn’t Stop Blacks Integration In Europe

History 2

The logic behind the hate of the black man is about something he has, which can’t be found in any race.

Colonial soldier with German women, 1919. In the period following World War I, French colonial troops were used as part of the Allied occupation of the German Rhineland, in accordance with the Treaty of Versailles. Hitler wrote about the Black Shame in Mein Kampf, decrying the “negrification” of Europe. His government would later sterilize 500 or so mixed-race children born of African servicemen and German women (the so-called “Rhineland Bastards”)

A Challenge To Belgium Journalists: Show How Sincere You’re To Uncover The Truth Over Aids And Ebola

Slave 2

A symbol of freedom: No slavery or medical crimes can break Africans down: Photo credit-Alex from Paris.

Sometimes without investigation or finding out reasons some people behave in a different manner, the actions of a man are often judged by the public or certain people, portraying him evil person in the society. We know what is justice, but justice doesn’t work or exist in some countries. Even if it exists, it favours certain class of people, probably elites but not an African.

You may be a member of a group or an association, but might feel uncomfortable with yourself, since you know that they are hiding something from you. In this way, how do you expect an African in the mist of white journalists to behave, when he knows that Aids and Ebola were medical crimes against Africa, but they wouldn’t like to write the truth or let the public know about it?

Another point is, how would you feel as an African in the mist of Belgian journalists, that will neither write anything about the horrible crime Belgium committed in Africa, nor write to demand the breakdown of the statue of Leopold II, if there is no statue of Adolf Hitler, because Leopold was worse than Hitler. He maimed and killed over ten million Africans, including women and children.

This is the reason I’m very bitter, and more bitter, because most of them have failed to realize their hypocrisy  and incompetency, thinking I am the bad one, because of the kind of articles I write. I am an African, so my article reflects on my culture. Anywhere we are or where ever we go, Belgium journalists shouldn’t expect me to open my arms widely to embrace or praise them.

Africa is a continent that has suffered a great of all persecutions, including colonial invasion, slavery, racism, looting, and medical crimes. The more I think about those atrocities, the more I become adamant, because I’m not ready to give myself and be used as foot mat.

My challenge to Belgium journalists is: They must prove to the world, how sincere they are by coming out clean to uncover the truth about Aids and Ebola, because Belgium took part in the medical crimes against Africa.

My respect and thanks to Holland’s scientist Johan Van Dongen, for revealing the truth over Aids and Ebola, as medical crimes against Africa. Even though the truth has cost him dearly, he is a happy man because of his clear conscience and integrity. Let scientists like Ab Osterhaus and Guido Van der Groen continue to lie as pagans, or in whatever they believe in and worship.

People are fed up with lies, greed cover-ups, the reason many have lost interest in the media. If you are a writer and want to be different, write the truth or something significant, which will arrest readers’ attention. That’s exactly what I have achieved. I will therefore never change my identity or my style of writing.

There are many mistakes I did in the past, which I will never repeat them. I don’t live my life to please anyone, and not very kind, because some people take your kindness as foolishness, besides some kindness can give you a lot of worries.
