<السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته>

("As-salaamu alaykum wa rahmatu Allah wa barakatuhu.")

<May peace be upon you, and the mercy and blessings of God.>

Call me Ismail.

This is short for my Muslim name: إسماعيل عبد الإرادة (Ismail Abdelirada). (My real name is quite different, but for reasons of privacy I do not choose to share it here. Others who have shared it did so without my consent.)

Until 2013, my wife, نظيرة (Nazeera), and I lived in Camazotz, California, a small town filled with rugged individualists who all do the same ruggedly individual things at the same ruggedly individual time in the same ruggedly individual way.

We then lived for 16 months in San Francisco, where mobile tsunami alarms ply the streets in the chill hours before dawn, pterodactyls wheeze politely as they choke on refuse under your windows six times a day, and you know it's time to cross the street when someone opens up on you with an Uzi. (Okay. Literally, the street sweepers make a noise when they start that resembles a tsunami alarm, the garbage and recycling trucks really do make a wheezing sound, and yes, the crossing signals on Market and several nearby streets actually sound like a machine gun. Unable to account for all of this in any other way, I have concluded that the City and County of San Francisco are inordinately clever in devising new ways to annoy residents.)

On the other hand, a few blocks away, we could get some of the world's best five-meat pizza, cooked halal by Mexican chefs in an Italian restaurant operated by Egyptians. (It's on Eerie Boulevard between Clones and Leavin'-Worth.)

Now we are back in Santa Cruz, at least until we can secure the necessary documents to begin our jihad:

We intend, God willing, to fly to Morocco, and then set out on foot from Tangier, along the coast of the Mediterranean, to Tarifa, Spain — a distance of just under ten thousand miles.

Our purpose in doing this is to spread a message of peace and brotherhood, both within Islam and between faiths.

Many people — and in particular many Muslims, even before we became Muslim — have been kind to us in countless ways. Now Allah has put this jihad into my heart to give me an opportunity, perhaps, to give something back at long last.

<Downwind
Vers libre>

Daily the freeway edges a little nearer.
Daily it grows a little bigger, dirtier,
More crowded, more congested. Daily it
Roars ever so slightly louder, with just
So much deeper a note of menace.
Pollution, too, and airborne death in

A thousand shapes: daily the freeway
Vomits a fraction more of these its woes
Upon a luckless downwind multitude.

Daily wanes the scant screen of ragged redwoods
That have for so long stood sentinel —
Forlorn hopes, perhaps; reminders of
A better time; symbols still, whether
Effectual or no — melting almost
Perceptibly before thousands of luckless
Downwind faces. Daily, too, the CalTrans
Trucks rattle past, rows of steel carrion
Beetles grown enormous, racing to some
Wound in raped and moribund nature's flesh
To aid in the corruption.


<Fluid Fire
A Carminal>

Who but she, that fluid fire of my heart,
Hath eyes of ice in burning aqua framed,
Whose sparks like midnight fountains' blazes start To flash in spectral firestreaks from their spheres Like firefalls on mountain cascades untamed
Or dance of city lights on darkling meres?

Who but she, igniter of blood and mind,
Hath on her head a crown of gold ablaze
In tides of fire surging to make eyes blind
From phosphor seas of moonbeams burning bright
As gold and pearls in gulfs of silver rays
Whose waves like gems blaze in dawn's topaz light?

Who but she, she who sets men's souls afire,
Hath aspect so with beauty's rays aflame
That bright heaven's stars to its beams aspire
And the very sun envies its fair glow
And maids fair as the moon on it lay blame
Like night unstarred outshone by sun-gilt snow?

Who but she hath all these? Yet all were naught
But for that taintless mind, that force of thought, And perfect beacon soul of love's light wrought.

<john barleycorn: On the <AJ Goldsby I> trail out of CG?

Are you in fact calling Daniel Freeman a sociopath?>

Can you in fact read?

(If you think the answer to your question is "yes," then the answer to mine is "no.")

Jun-13-17  User not found: I apologize for my infatuated stalker following me here Abdel so please delete whatever posts you deem necessary (he deleted 4 because they were OVER 18, Adult filter posts) IF you want. When I asked him why he's soooooo obsessed with me and does everything he does for how long he's been doing it and why he does it on every form of social media available, yet can't address me here like a man without bringing personal information, my life, family, photos, twitter, his OFF-SITE ONLINE activities into it... you know what he said,??

"because you working class weird family ill mannered criminal and I punish you!?!?!". Oh yeah. And "I RAPED YOUR SOUL UNTIL YOU GET AGORAPHOBIA!" LMAO 😂

The virtual vigilante, who knows full well if he kept it to this site would get sarcastically, verbally and humorously dissected into pate every day has no dignity, no self respect, no humour (apart from accidentally, lol) no nothing.... Because he fully admits what he does, won't deny it and I can't wait until the *cough cough* self proclaimed lawyer (LMAO) realises that <<5 years 1 month>> of vile, twisted, evil, disturbing, intrusive, jealous, bitter, insane, obsessive criminal behaviour is gonna bite him on his skinny ass for his <" online campaign of disturbing psychotic CRIMES for over half a decade with intent to cause me and my family as much emotional distress and worry over his psychopathic behaviour as possible"> (I'm paraphrasing) he's messed up BIG TIME and Daniel Freeman can't help him out this time!! No more softly softly, those police told me if I fall soft with him or Daniel (I told them not to strong arm Daniel for certain information the first time around, he's not a bad guy and he doesn't understand the law) then they will regard the complaint as closed... My sister and father and their families have had to go ex directory on the polices advice (<to me. Not them.. Yet!>) and said if he lived ANYWHERE in Britain he'd get a minimum 3 years jail sentence for a first offence....that's how serious it is! A FIRST OFFENCE!! That's how serious and how crazy things have got. As long as he's on this site I'll relentlessly take the piss out of him for what he's done, without breaking the rules, especially without using personal information and personal attacks, because I can do it without getting a mental illness and developing an obsession and I can do it with HUMOUR :)

I'm telling you this to put whatever Jay-B has said about you into perspective because I know him, he's a nice family man and DEFINITELY NOT a sociopath. I wish you both could get on, we made up. I wish you could take a bit of ribbing over the Med tread because I'm sure it's not meant nastily, certainly not on my behalf anyways and I know Jay-B isn't like that either... Trust me Abdel? He's a good man.

I've had many arguments on this site and got over them and now get on with most of those people, I'm just loud and opinated and don't bite my tongue. Most "get" my humor, it's an English Blackadder like sarcasm.. Only 3 people have creeped me out yet I've forgiven two because we all make mistakes, I don't want to be their best friends or nothing but I can look past it and half forget about it without arguing with those people again... This guy is different, I tell him he's poorly because he is, not to insult him! I think everyone on this site knows I can be a little more creative than saying "You're poorly. See a doctor!?" if I want to insult someone, lol

I never knew people like him existed! Mark my fine words (wheyyy, lol).. This time he'll face the consequences of his criminal and vile actions.

Don't sweat it on the rogoff page Abdel. BP takes more abuse than most and even though his views can be offensive he still takes it without whinging, no one is interested in his private life, dead loved ones, blah blah blah etc etc etc..

Keep your head up, Jay-B is a good guy and get on with it....AJ with a dictionary, lol I joke I kid :)

<Unf>: Thank you for making an effort at reconciliation. I've tried four times myself, but <jbc> isn't having any.

Meanwhile, does this look "good-natured"?

<john barleycorn: In fact, I can read and look through your ongoing attempts at cheap rhetorics/sophistry.>

There has not been a single word from <jbc> to suggest that he is willing to accept peace on any terms short of my destruction.

I can't read his mind. I can react only on the basis of what I see in print, and every bit of that is bitterly hostile.

But if you can get *him* to consider making peace, *I* remain willing.

I am no prince, but an editor I have been and remain.

Nonetheless, when I say "we," I am doing what you so often do yourself: speaking for the forum. I suppose if you can do that, so can I ... and maybe even make a point in the process.

Jun-15-17  User not found: Abdel.. You haven't been doing much "rubbing in" lately.. May I recommend you start here in this forum by once again adding up those amounts of MONEY 💰 in the screenshots and posting it for Choo Choo to get jel jel over, lol.

Seriously Abdel.. I expect more rubbing, lol :)

Is "editor" a job title that can be maintained even during unemployment?

<when I say "we," I am doing what you so often do yourself: speaking for the forum.>

I do not remember when I claimed to speak or spoke for the forum *so often* but sure you will let me know. Like with the *dozens* of posts during your CG absence or those 40 mention of your name which by a miracle became 14 including the movie title "The Life of Brian".

Are you claiming that you never demand that I "tell us <x>," or just that you don't do it too often, so it's okay?

You are a hypocrite, and not nearly as smart as you like to think. Unless you improve the standard of your posts to my forum, I will delete them without comment.

Abraham was a hundred years old when his son Isaac was born to him.> Isaac grew, and on the day of the child's weaning Abraham held a great feast.>

Sarah noticed the son whom Hagar the Egyptian
had borne to Abraham
playing with her son Isaac;
so she demanded of Abraham:
"Drive out that slave and her son!>

No son of that slave is going to share the inheritance with my son Isaac!">

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<Abraham was greatly distressed, especially on account of his son Ishmael.> But God said to Abraham: "Do not be distressed about the boy or about your slave woman.>
Heed the demands of Sarah, no matter what she is asking of you; for it is through Isaac that descendants shall bear your name.>
As for the son of the slave woman,
I will make a great nation of him also,
since he too is your offspring.">

Early the next morning Abraham got some bread and a skin of water and gave them to Hagar.
Then, placing the child on her back, he sent her away.>
As she roamed aimlessly in the wilderness of Beer-sheba, the water in the skin was used up.>

So she put the child down under a shrub,
and then went and sat down opposite him, about a bowshot away; for she said to herself, "Let me not watch to see the child die.">
As she sat opposite Ishmael, he began to cry.>
God heard the boy's cry,
and God's messenger called to Hagar from heaven: "What is the matter, Hagar?>

Don't be afraid; God has heard the boy's cry in this plight of his.>
Arise, lift up the boy and hold him by the hand; for I will make of him a great nation.">
Then God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water.>
She went and filled the skin with water, and then let the boy drink.>

God was with the boy as he grew up.>
