Manar Hallor I'm sorry that you suffer from paranoia, David. No amount of name changing & job descriptions can change it. It's something personal that you have to deal with on your own. I really do hope that you overcome it and I'm not being facetious. It must be tough to be faced with that type of anxiety. Try meditation. In any case, believe what you want if it helps you deal with your issue. Also, take my previous suggestion and email MLFA. You clearly are attempting to jeopardize my position so it would be easier if you get straight to the point and they fire me. But I'll warn you, if I get fired my political opinions will not change & I'll continue to write articles. Currently working on why Israel is an apartheid state.You'll enjoy it. God Bless
Manar Hallor Again, get your facts straight David. Palestinians have SEVERAL last names based on lineage, town, tribe AND family. I have personal reasons for the use of this current last name..reasons I am not obligated to share with a creepy PolicyMic user. BTW, I'm flattered that you think I'm internationally recognized...that's quite the accomplishment. Thanks for the compliment, sir.
Manar Hallor David, get your facts straight. You might confuse yourself. I didn't say anything about the legality of an RD. I said that non-profits (orgs that get govt and donation based funding CANNOT be politically affiliated). This however doesn't mean that I cannot be politically vocal myself. I just have to state (which I have several times) that my views are ONLY mine and do not represent anyone else. Go read the comments again if you want...oh wait, I forgot that you're still under the paranoid thinking that I'm able to delete comments.
Manar Hallor Aww shucks David, I'm flattered that you follow my whereabouts on Twitter...You sure know how to make a gal feel special. Move over Kim K because there is a new celebrity in town. "and openly admits to having an agenda" if by agenda you mean revealing Israel's war crimes, human rights violations, and ignored UN resolutions then sure I have an agenda. Hmm, since I was born in the late 80's i'd qualify to be a millennial..no posing required. But I hate being labeled into a single group so feel free to call me a Palestinian educated on Israel's bloody history instead ;D
Manar Hallor Gary, I refuse to waste my time by answering the same ridiculous questions and hateful accusations about my religion. There are a few other individuals who are ignorant on the topic of Islam, like you, who have commented on this article (as well as a few others I wrote) with similar questions and bigoted comments. Please refer to my replies to them for your answers. Have a wonderful day and thank you for reading.
Manar Hallor Hi Avi, thanks for the comment. I hear several individuals trying to advance the same argument, however, I (and most people who endorse and support BDS) don't believe that Israel's human rights violations and war crimes should be negated by the fact that other countries (like Saudi Arabia) commit human rights violations too. I think there should be campaigns against ALL human rights violators. I'd support them all equally.
Manar Hallor Hey Krystian, thanks for the comment. Yeah, I know a lot of Muslims who drink too. Similar to any religion there are individuals who choose not to follow certain Islamic rulings and that is 100% their choice. There should be no compulsion in religion. "What happens to Muslims who do break shariah law?" That depends on where you live. I believe that ONLY God should be the judge of our actions but unfortunately there are families (in certain communities) who don't react too well to their family members drinking (or engaging in other things that are against Islam). However in Palestine , for example, loads of Muslims drink and the worst that happens is people talk about them behind their back lol. Thanks for reading.
Manar Hallor Wa'alkum Asalaam, thanks for the comment Akram. Sorry for the late reply (I'm on vacation and don't have much internet access). I do listen to music a lot (not mainstream crap though lol). I know there are various interpretations on music but I'd be lying if I said I could live without it. I love music (all sorts). I've been slacking on the Quran reading. I don't read Quran everyday (although I feel I try to). I'm pretty good about reading it on Fridays at least.
Manar Hallor Malcolm and David, I don't know if you guys planned this and are trying to be funny but I don't have time to be lied to and go through all the comments, which you say supposedly can't see. Don't know what's wrong with your computers (although I'm sure they are completely fine). The comments are visible on my computer. I wont be upset...I just refuse to spend any more valuable time on this while two grown men try to prank me. I feel stupid for falling for this and wasting my time. Have a good day and God bless.
Manar Hallor Again, I suggest you reading the comments instead of making stuff up. He had no challenge. He kept saying "this doesn't represent all Zionists" blah blah..So clearly he wasn't challenging the authenticity of the quotes all which are 100% accurate but just mad that I put them out there. The quotes are straight racist, belligerent and hateful on their own (again please read them). You might want to look up the word "rebuttal," buddy. Just sayin... Nice try...come again.
Manar Hallor "She had already been debunked, point by point. That conversation is now gone. Manar got owned in that debate." Okay, I'm gonna give you the benefit of the doubt and say this topic is too much for you to comprehend. I had a response to every single comment (all visible below)..I wouldn't exactly call that "debunked."
Manar Hallor Malcolm, I don't know if you are just trying to play stupid or trying to waste my time by making me go through the comments. I just checked and all the comments are there. If your intention is to deter me from writing articles about Israel's war crimes and human rights violations this wont work. I'm actually currently working on an article about why Israel is an apartheid state. I think you will find it very interesting :)
Manar Hallor WOW you either can't read or cant comprehend what you read. For the millionth time, I'm NOT allowed to write under my occupation title because it's a non-profit and CAN'T have an political affiliations. My views here are my views alone, which is why I don't list my occupation. Furthermore, whether I work at a non-profit or freakin McDonald's it doesn't change the reality of Israel's war crimes and human rights violations. My articles are backed by fact and that is the only disclosure readers need.
Manar Hallor David, I wouldn't (if he doesn't provide his title). There are journalists all over the world who work for various prominent media outlets but express their OWN personal views on social sites (twitter, facebook...). They even explicitly state that their views DO NOT represent their employer. Same is the case with my writing which is why I do not provide my occupation. I'm not sure why you don't understand that by LAW non-profits CANNOT have political affiliations...You obviously didn't read my previous comment.
Manar Hallor And thanks for bringing up the HLF case. A case that the persecution was allowed to use "secret evidence" (a violation of our Constitution) to convict 5 innocent individuals. I wonder why Nancy Hollander had this to say about the outcome case "This is travesty of American criminal justice. I don’t think American citizens understand that this effects all of us and the world that believes in the American criminal justice system. Anyone in any court in America now risks being convicted based on the opinion of someone who claims to be an expert without any opportunity to cross examine that person because everything about that so-called expert can remain secret. The right to Confrontation, so long enshrined in our justice system, died today."
Manar Hallor On the basis that Israel imprisoned one of the soldiers who did it (but only for 3 months). Look it up if you don't believe me. Goldstone was pressured by Zionist Israeli figures to retract part of his report...but his report isn't the only one that documents the horror and war crimes committed.
