Saw Control Room this weekend. Excellent movie. Here are a few things that were amusing: The head guy of Al Jazeera (who btw has a wonderful demeanor about him...very easy to listen to him speak). Anyhow, he at one point said: "If Fox News were to offer me a job, I'd take it. Leave the Arab nightmare for the American Dream." He also had said earlier in the film something along the lines of "If everyone got an American passport/visa, this would all be done - no more problems." One thing that was a really good point in the film is when someone had said that the US media radicalizes Islam. The movie was well done and very fair if you ask me. Definately worth a watch.

I also saw Fahrenheit 9/11 which was also very good. I knew it would be. What is good about Michael Moore is that he gets normal people who don't watch political documentaries or read leftist news to see another viewpoint. And everyone will see this film for the same reason they watched Passion of the Christ - to not be left out of conversation. I have a feeling this film is going to hurt Bush and Yay for that.

Other events of the weekend:

Read a couple good books last night... The Treatise on Rights by Imam Sajjad Ali ibn al-Hussei n and also Shi'ism: Imamate & Wilayat by Sayyid Muhammad Rizvi. I've also came to the decision that I no longer want to live in the US. I just don't want it. I don't want my children (insh'Allah) to be raised here either.

A recent convert to Islam...finally found what I was searching for. I am a writer and love to read and learn. I also love travelling and getting to know new cultures and ways of thinking.
