Barack Obama Wins!

Between Us Only!

The Barack Obama Win!

Congratulations to Barack Osama for remaining as the 44th USA President in his second term defeating Mitt Romney!

I had dreamt about this bit but decided to keep it to myself! I said to myself – if I start telling people about this they will start thinking that being an acute depressed diabetic case – then I am starting to lose it – that is my mind – and faculties! The problem that we have in society is once they give you a colouring or label – they are not willing and susceptible to change their outlooks – and minds!

For example if they have labelled you as being over sensitive! Or a trouble-maker! Or has egg-shell feelings – and that means if you just touch the outer shell – then the egg breaks! I do not know what happens with a hardboiled egg to the outer skin – or like those long preserved eggs! So one needs to be careful what one does say – even if the intention is warm, sincere and genuine!

I must admit though that compared to the last elections – I was less keen and motivated than ever before. I did not follow the election results with that keen interest and like this time.

And that is the message to Obama in his second term. The people of the Middle East are disenfranchised and disinterested in having all their hopes, aspirations and dreams smashed up by not kept promises and pledges for a peaceful transformation of the Middle East with the two states solution living in recognised borders – in peace, harmony, and understanding and in co-existence.

Images – Obama Wins!

The ME Middle East today has become more unsafe, dangerous and risky – with increasing extremism, fundamentalism and radicalisation! And with Israel still calling more shots and being paid full unflinching blind attentions and focuses – to the detriment and disadvantage of us all in the ME! To the extent that it has become a rogue bully state – and knowing that whatever they will do they will have full blind support and backing of USA!   

I hope and pray that Obama will remember the promises and pledges he had made to us all in 2004 – and follow them through. There is no reason or excuse for him now not doing so – because as far as I know there is no Third Term possibilities and opportunities in the USA constitution so far!

And he should put right and in their place those people who think they can still control, subjugate and dominate the American scene and focus to their positions and advantage always!

If I were American – and a God fearing one too – I would realise that there is a greater force than us humans – and that was shown by the storm Sandy! Despite all the weapons, technology and infrastructure Mother Nature can still bring destruction, devastation, rampage and havoc to us.

We must all return to Religion and to our God Our Lord – and as to live as humanity in this world together as one –  in love, understanding, co-existence, tolerance, patience – for the sake of ourselves, our destiny, legacy and our future.

And we must separate those that want to cause harm, destruction, chaos and havoc between peoples – and we must learn fast and quick to talk to each other to solve our problems! This instead of using technology to kill, harm and destroy innocent lives – many women and children – as collateral damages in the pursuits of a few adversaries!

History has proven – again and again – that these methods do not work at all – and is like pouring petrol over a cinder fire burning intensely underground. We must open the books of history – and reread them again! Before it is too late for everyone! Because no one will emerge the winner in all these – and we all will lose – or suffer in one way or the other!

The message and theme remains the same: –

  • ·        Remain always with your people – they decide whether you stay on or not!
  • ·        Respect everyone in the society – disregarding, race, creed or creed!
  • ·        Do not sideline, marginalise or ignore The Women!
  • ·        They make 50% of the population!
  • ·        Do not sideline, marginalise or ignore The Youth!
  • ·        They are decision makers too – and are tomorrow’s future and leaders!

I do not know if you speak or hear Swahili BO – but if you do Hongera! Or Mabrook – as we Arabs like to say too!

May the Good Lord Guide us all to the right path and ways always – and Protect us all from his anger and fury – Amin Amen!

Take Care!

Trafford Press Release – A Cry For Help! – Majid Al Suleimany


 Trafford Press Release –  A Cry For Help! – Majid Al Suleimany


Majid Al Suleimany’s Exciting New Book is “A Cry for Help!”


“A Cry for Help!” examines the management styles of Arabian Gulf Corporation Council countries


A frank, honest and open book exposing the increasing lack of ethics, principles, professionalism and tolerance in the office environment

Muscat, Oman (PRWEB) November 01, 2012

Muscat, Oman Author Majid Al Suleimany exposes the increasing extremism, fundamentalism and radicalization in management styles and employees’ receptions and reaction in his new book “A Cry for Help!” (published by Trafford Publishing)

With over 35 years of human resource experience in Oman and with the Gulf Cooperation Council countries, Al Suleimany digs deep into the Arab office environment. Suleimany spins “a frank, honest and open book exposing the increasing lack of ethics, principles, professionalism and tolerance in the office environment.”

“A Cry for Help!” focuses on the particular type of management that is being used in the Arab workplace while explaining the context and perspectives in the work environment. He goes on to explain what is peculiar, special, or particular to that work in the context of, and in comparison to, management styles of other nations.

He has published four other books: “Psychology of Arab management!,” “The Sequel – Between Us Only!,” “Short Takes – Between Us Only!” and “Between Us Only!

The Philosophy of Ubuntu!

The Ubuntu Philosophy!

I am because we are! – How can one of us be happy if all the others are sad?

An anthropologist studying the habits and customs of an African tribe found himself surrounded by children most days. So he decided to play a little game with them. He managed to get candies from the nearest town, and put it all in a decorated basket at the foot of a tree. Then he called the children and suggested they play a game.

When the anthropologist said “Now!” the children had to run to the tree, and the first one to get there could have ALL the candies to himself/herself. So the children all lined up waiting for the signal.

When the anthropologist said “Now!”, all the children held each others’ hand and ran together towards the tree. They all arrived at the same time, divided up the candies, sat down, and began to happily munch away.

The anthropologist went over to them and asked why they had all run together, when any one of them could have had the candies all to himself/herself.

The children responded: “Ubuntu”! How could any one of us be happy if all the others were sad?”

Ubuntu is a philosophy of some African tribes that can be summed up as “I am what I am because of who we all are.”This can teach us all many things about life!

In East African Swahili Uutu – Uutu bora kuliko Viitu.

Humanity is better than things (materialism, consumerism and individualism)…

Desmond Tutu, Nelson Mandela, Thabo Mbeki – South Africa – and Ubuntu!

Condemning apartheid, Tutu warned that “The oppressed could become tomorrow’s oppressors because sin is an ever-present possibility” The philosophy that Tutu, Mandela, and Mbeki share is the philosophy of ubuntu. Ubuntu originates in the Bantu Language and Peoples – including the Zulus in South Africa.

Generally speaking, ubuntu means “humanity” and is related to umuntu, which is the category of intelligent human being. Bishop Desmond Tutu has defined ubuntu as the person who is welcoming, hospitable, warm and generous, affirming of others, and who does not feel threatened that others are able and good; [this person] has a proper self-assurance that comes from knowing they belong to a greater whole, are diminished when another is humiliated, diminished, tortured, oppressed, and threatened as if they were less than they are . Tutu has also defined ubuntu as the quality of interaction in which one’s own humanness depends on recognizing it in the other!

We human beings are in this lot together – and there are a lot of things that we can learn from each other in this world today.

Best Wishes and Regards,

Majid Al Suleimany
