My parents named me, Emad.  I prefer to be addressed by my first name, not my family name. I live in Kamp-Lintfort, Germany where I study digital media master of arts, but originally from Cairo, Egypt and born in 1987. I formally studied mass communication media, I study informally by myself and I’m an amateur linguist.

I care about media accuracy and neutrality.

I’m pacifist and consider wars to be big business. I refuse to be part of wars. Wars are a perfect example of collective punishment, which I have always suffered from and still!

My interests are broad: from climatology to technology.

I’m interested in internet privacy, human rights issues, religions, efficiency, veganism and therefore cooking. In 2012/10/24, I became vegetarian, I didn’t like very much animal foods anyway and I kind of regret not sticking to a vegetarian diet in 2010 because I was convinced of it ever since. The American musician, Moby, influenced me when he was speaking about veganism. I usually cook for myself.

I’m a daily listener to music!

I couldn’t believe myself that a popular learning material for Esperanto is translated into Arabic. So, I copied it to another blog I made with some additions.

Things I hate: shisha, cigarettes and hate.

אני אוהב את השפות מאוד. למדתי עברית בעצמי, גם אני לומד צרפתית וגרמנית.

J’étudie le français par moi-même, j’étudié aussi l’hébreu et l’allemand. J’aime les langues.

Ich lerne Deutsch, Hebräisch und Französisch.

Quotes I like:
Ronny Edry: “They advertise war. We will advertise peace.”

John F. Kennedy: “War will exist until that distant day when the conscientious objector enjoys the same reputation and prestige that the warrior does today.”

Gandhi: “An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.”

Seville Statement on Violence: “The fact that warfare has changed so radically overtime indicates that it is a product of culture.”

The Master Omar Harb: “They think that they are doing what they want, but in reality they are doing what I want.”

Chocolat: Armande Voizin: “Don’t you dare pity me!”
