ramadan TV..

where i live in yafo there is a cafe near my house full of shisha pipes.. its the only arab cafe on the block of a predominantly israeli street..

its very smokey and always has a stack of guys hanging out the front.. the interior is bleaque and the walls are covered in murals of men with weapons.. honestly? not welcoming..

yesterday i walked past with my surf board on the way to catch a few waves and a young guy popped out and walked in the same direction and i asked him what the deal was with the militant murals.. he laughed and explained to me that they were characters out of a tv series.. a ramadan tv series.. he said that everytime that show was on the streets of his neighbourhood were empty.. everyone watches it he assured me.. i asked why they needed weapons and he told me that they were fictitious fighters along the borders of turkey and syria..

he promised that i too was welcome in the cafe and invited me to come by some time soon.. i shall definitely go soon.. such is the power of ramadan tv.. ;)

i look fwd to an awesome season of thoughts and inspirations.. wishing you all in advance ramadan kareem peace and love..

Although I am not Muslim, I am going to fast along with my Muslim friends for Ramadan this year. I think the Muslim form of prayer is absolutely breathtaking.
