hi i'm new [27 Aug 2009|01:54pm]

Hi, my name is Kaitlyn.  I'm am part Arab and Native American and English.  I am mostly Arabic and everyone always comments about it.

After 9/11 a rumor went around school that my father and i were terrorists and only my close friends would still speak to me.  Everyone would make jokes like, "Hey, have you talked to Osama lately?  When's the next terrorist attack going down?"  I am very proud of my heritage and all the things Arabs have accomplished.  In Mississippi where i live, everyone is concerned about the racial issues between African Americans and whites, but no one ever considers that Arabs are descriminated against by everyone, not just whites.  Even in college i had a friend who had just moved to America from Iran and everyone would say he's a terrorist.  It made me so angry i did a speech about it.

i can't wait to get to know all of you and learn about my heritage.

Here's pictures of me under the cut

[ mood | relaxed ]

I have brown eyes, as a child I always wanted other colored eyes like hazel, green or blue but whatever could I do, so I've learned to accept the eyes I have. I often get mistaken for being Persian but I am mostly Egyptian. Here is my photo.

Brigitte Gabriel's speech - made at Duke University [07 Aug 2006|11:08am]
"I'm proud and honored to stand here today as a Lebanese, speaking for
Israel , the only democracy in the Middle East. As someone who was
raised in an Arabic country, I want to give you a glimpse into the heart of the Arabic world.

I was raised in Lebanon where I was taught that the Jews are evil,
Israel is the devil, and the only time we will have peace in the Middle East is
when we kill all the Jews and drive them into the sea.

When the Muslims and Palestinians declared jihad on the Christians in
1975,they started massacring the Christians city after city. I ended up
living in a bomb shelter underground from age 10 to 17, without electricity, Eating grass to live, and crawling under sniper bullets to a spring to get water.

It was Israel who came to help the Christians in Lebanon. My mother was
wounded by a Muslim shell and was taken into an Israeli hospital for
treatment. When we entered the emergency room, I was shocked at what I
There were hundreds of people wounded, Muslims, Palestinians, Lebanese
Christians, and Israeli soldiers lying on the floor. The doctors treated
everyone according to their injury. They treated my mother before they
treated the Israeli soldier lying next to her. They didn't see religion,
they didn't see political affiliation; they saw people in need and they

For the first time in my life, I experienced a human quality that I know
my culture would not have shown to their enemy. I experienced the values of the Israelis, who were able to love their enemy in their most trying
moments. I spent 22 days at that hospital; those days changed my life and the way I believe information, the way I listen to the radio or to television. I realized that I was sold a fabricated lie by my government about the Jews and Israel, which was so far from reality. I knew for a fact that if I were a Jew standing in an Arab hospital, I would be lynched and thrown to the ground as shouts of joy of "Allahu Akbar" (God is great) echoed through the hospital and the surrounding streets.

I became friends with the families of the wounded Israeli soldiers, one in particular, Rina, whose only child was wounded in his eyes. One day, I was visiting with her and the Israeli army band came to play national songs to lift the spirits of the wounded soldiers. As they surrounded his bed playing a song about Jerusalem, Rina and I started crying. I felt out of place and started walking out of the room, and this mother held my hand and pulled me back in without even looking at me. She held me, crying, and said, "It is not your fault." We just stood there, crying, holding each other's hands.
What a contrast between her-a mother looking at her deformed,19-year-old
only child and still able to love me, the enemy-and a Muslim mother who
sends her son to blow himself up to smithereens just to kill a few Jews or Christians.

The difference between the Arabic world and Israel is a difference in values and character. It's barbarism versus civilization. It's democracy versus dictatorship. It's goodness versus evil.

Once upon a time, there was a special place in the lowest depths of hell for anyone who would intentionally murder a child. Now, the intentional murder of Israeli children is legitimized as Palestinian "armed struggle." However, once such behavior is legitimized against Israel, it is legitimized everywhere in the world, constrained by nothing more than the subjective belief of people who would wrap themselves in dynamite and nails for the purpose of killing children in the name of god.

Because the Palestinians have been encouraged to believe that murdering
innocent Israeli civilians is a legitimate tactic for advancing their cause, the whole world now suffers from a plague of terrorism, from Nairobi to New York, from Moscow to Madrid, from Bali to Beslan.

They blame suicide bombings on the "desperation of occupation." Let me tell you the truth. The first major terror bombing committed by Arabs against the Jewish state occurred 10 weeks before Israel even became independent. On Sunday morning, February 22, 1948, in anticipation of Israel's independence, a triple truck bomb was detonated by Arab terrorists on Ben Yehuda Street in what was then the Jewish section of Jerusalem. Fifty-four people were killed and hundreds were wounded.

Thus, it is obvious that Arab terrorism is caused not by "desperation" or
"occupation", but by the VERY THOUGHT of a Jewish state.

So many times in history in the last 100 years, citizens have stood by and done nothing, allowing evil to prevail. As America stood up against and defeated communism, now it is time to stand up against the terror of
religious bigotry and intolerance. It's time for everyone to stand up and
support and defend the State of Israel, which is the front line of the war against terrorism.

Thank you."

My name is Sara, I'm 16. My dad is 100% Lebanese, and my mum is a European mix(mostly Italian). I live in Florida, I speak some French but barely any arabic. I recently visited my family in Lebanon, and picked up a little arabic there. Since then, I've been trying to learn more. I'm not Muslim, I chose my mum's religion instead, and I'd like to make friends with other multiracial girls.
I'm in the PCCA program at Gibbs High school, and my major is Visual arts. If anyone is interested in art as well, I can post some of my work and they can share theirs as well.

Mmm, that's all.

intro [23 Dec 2005|03:09am]

[ mood | awake ]

Hi. I just found this community and am very happy :) I'm sarah, 22, graduate student in international affairs in paris, france. my dad is algerian: half berber, half arab. my mom is half jewish and half english. so basically im 3/4 semitic. I speak French and English fluently and I can read and write in Arabic, and speak the algerian dialect decently. I identify more with the arab side of my family, but i dont consider myself a full on moslem as i don't wear the hidjab or pray.

nice to have a community of polyglottal and multicultural ladies around here :)
will upload pix when i have time and bandwidth.

boussa kbirat.

A few weeks ago I was in Jerusalem, where took pic of this very nice falasha girl; though she doesn't look very much semitic she is in fact. She works in caffe "Etno Israel" by Frumkin st. In fact I study the Falalsha diaspora, so if you have any interesting fact I'll be very glad to read them )))

I'm Semetic and I'm a chic, so, whynot? Maybe one day I'll actually find a pretty pic of myself/my family to post up here. Until then I'll just read and nod (:

oh, a question: Am I like the only atheist mid-easterner in the entire world? Or are there others out there?

Mah Nishmah? Keif-il-cheil? [01 May 2005|07:29pm]

Hello gilrs!
Just stumbled on this community and I thought it was the coolest thing I'd seen in a while.....I'm Jewish and my roommate of four years is Egyptian and we have often talked about how the term "antisemitism" is strange in that semantically it applies to Arabs as well. I am about to graduate with a bachelor's in religion, and one of the things that has been a source on constant fascination to me is the incredible similarity between Judaism and Islam - both structurally and ethically. I'm interested in learnig more.....I don't mean to be trite, but I really do believe in peace through understanding.

[ mood | hopeful ]

I'm not semitic (I'm all anglo-saxon without even so much as a fling between slave and master or errant Cherokee refugee to make my genetics interesting) and I'm not a girl....and I'm gay, so I suppose I don't "love" any semitic girls either...but I do *heart* them. Can that suffice? I hope so; this is a crazyfun site.
