So, Dremer, have there been enough civilian deaths and destruction for us to ask if this is starting to look like a massacre? 600+ Palestinian civilians dead, Israeli snipers targeting unarmed civilians, 50 mosques targeted, hospitals overflowing, journalists missing…what do you call this? #BusinessInsider #AskDremer

At first I though this was a joke

Don’t ignore this Tumblr

Yet they still do even when it’s right in their face.

This reminds me of how a friend of mine was abused by the mother of his child. She was mentally unstable and used to berate him constantly and would smack him in the head all the time. It really pissed me off. Then one night she threw hot coffee in his face and tried to stab him with a screwdriver. The cops hauled him off to jail because she made up a sob story that painted herself as the victim. 

Once he left her, he stayed with me and it was a nightmare. She stalked him and me. She would drive by my house obsessively at all hours of the day and night (her muffler made a weird sound so I know it was her). She started showing up at my job, showing up at the places I frequented around town, and filling up my voicemail with dead air. The cops were no help.

One day she got bold enough to talk her way into my home by conning my elderly grandmother, whom I was taking care of, while I was out. She went in my room and went through my stuff (creepy), then found him napping on the couch and attacked him. My grandmother witnessed the whole thing. He grabbed her by the arms, forced her out the front door, and locked it. The cops were called again. They said they’d go and ‘talk’ to her.

The next day we were watching a movie and there was a knock at the door. The police had come to arrest him. She filed a complaint against him and shown off some bruises on her arms from the altercation that she swore were completely unprovoked. My grandmother saw the whole thing since she was in the living room too and testified on his behalf. He still ended up serving jail time.
No one takes male domestic violence victims seriously. They only see males as perpetrators.

Last summer, I researched a couple things and they made my life better. Why not share it?
Feel free to add to this list, I’m sure there are those who are an expert at this stuff. 
Emergency pimple that you need to get rid of ASAP
1) Soak a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar. It’s recommended that you dilute your apple cider vinegar if your skin is sensitive. 2) Hold the soaked cotton ball onto pimples GENTLY (don’t press hard) for at least 5 minutes! 3) Dab apple cider vinegar on your pimples through out the day. 4) Let the apple cider dry. Results: By nighttime or the next day, your pimple should shrink or disappear provided you persistently dabbed it repeatedly 
Don’t do this often, it can aggravate your skin*
Facial scrub
There are many you can do. Here are 10 of them. 
For longer, thicker eyelashes
Apply vaseline on your eyelashes before you sleep (BE CAREFUL TO NOT GET IN EYE). You can also use a clean mascara brush and dip it in some almond, olive or coconut oil and apply it on your eyelashes. 
To get rid of dark elbows and knees
Use a lemon and squeeze it until you get the juice out. Use cotton balls to soak them in the lemon juice and then apply all over your knees and elbows. Leave them it on for a couple minures, then using a warm washcloth scrub it off. 
For baby smooth skin
Use 2 teaspoons of yogurt, 1 teaspoon of milk and honey, 3 teaspoons of flour and mix all together and apply on your face. Leave it for 30 minutes and wash it off. 
For lighter skin
Wanna get rid of that summer tan or even out your skin tone? Squeeze lemon juice again but remember to dilute it. Never put direct lemon juice onto your face. Mix this with some sugar. Use it as a scrub. Leave it on your face for no more than 5 minutes. The same can be done for your body. 
For silky hair
Apply olive oil/coconut oil to your hair. Make sure you get it deep into those roots. Leave on for 30 minutes up to 1 hour and wash it off with shampoo and conditioner
For whiter teeth
Sprinkle some baking soda on your toothbrush and brush using gentle, circular motions. I’d watch out if you had gum sensitivity though. Old wives’ recipes often state that a paste of baking powder, a little salt, and a few drops of white vinegar, works effectively. 
For cleaner nails
Just scrub your nails with a loofah and use a toothpick to take out dirt.

Anonymous asked: Does god still love me? I feel so lost and depressed and I feel as though he has left me, like he has no hope in me. I'm not gonna lie, I almost abandoned him too because I feel so sad and like I cannot connect with him. I haven't done anything terribly bad in my life like I'm still a virgin and stuff but I have made some mistakes. Does god love me though. I feel so alone sometimes.

The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said that Allah said: He who comes with a good deed, its reward will be ten like that or even more. And he who comes with vice, his reward will be only one like that, or I can forgive him. He who draws close to Me a hand’s span, I will draw close to him an arm’s length. And whoever draws near Me an arm’s length, I will draw near him a fathom’s length. And whoever comes to Me walking, I will go to him running. And whoever faces Me with sins nearly as great as the earth, I will meet him with forgiveness nearly as great as that, provided he does not worship something with me.
