Yes, I’m posting one of those damn feel-good videos, and no, it’s not even full moon. Am I going soft?
[big hug to my friend Lynn for sending it to me]
well i can’t see the video because “its blocked in you country on copyright grounds”
but it’s so nice to come to your blog Lesley. i was just watching an anti-islam discussion and it’s just incredibly frustrating, maybe i should just stay away from those places, i don’t think i have the nervous system required for it. i can’t take it.
just to make it clear the anti-islam anti-muslim discussion was elsewhere.
then i came here and i felt better 🙂
Sorry about the block, Hossam. Maybe the direct link will circumvent it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hN8CKwdosjE&feature=player_embedded And yes, I know what you mean about those discussions — it’s like drinking a cup of bile and ugliness. I say let’s stick to mint tea with honey…
Thanks for sharing this video. I learned two thing from it; people long to closeness and friendly atmosphere, and Italians are warm people! responded nicely to the free hug guys.
I understood why you posted this video. it touched you somehow like it did me.
How do you say “Free Hugs” in Arabic? In Farsi? in French? In Swahili? In Urdu? In Korean? Chinese? Esperante?……
I was reading your latest book and I wonder why you only use one source for that (Tabari) there is a lot of more source you could use?
Check out the section titled ‘Sources’ at the end, which includes a bibliography. Al-Tabari was a major source, but very far from the only one.
