[8/22/14, 8:07 AM] Seth Russell: What's really on your mind?
Mostafa Muhammad Tariq Almahdy: What's really in my mind?
Mostafa Muhammad Tariq Almahdy: Because I've decided to do so.
Seth Russell: what is the political situation in Egypt now?
Mostafa Muhammad Tariq Almahdy: The army has took over.
Mostafa Muhammad Tariq Almahdy: I don't like it, but I wasn't pleased with the brotherhood either.
Seth Russell: how about opening the boarder to Gaza?
Mostafa Muhammad Tariq Almahdy: The borders to Gaza should remain open for human aid.
Seth Russell: do the people in Gaza make their own food?
Mostafa Muhammad Tariq Almahdy: I don't think so. They are militarily occupied.
Seth Russell: yes i know
Seth Russell: but their occupier does not feed them ... do they?
Mostafa Muhammad Tariq Almahdy: Of course they don't.
Seth Russell: so then they must make their own food ... er, right?
Mostafa Muhammad Tariq Almahdy: They are not allowed and thus, people of humanrights are trying with difficulty to reach them.
Seth Russell: yes that must be mostly for medical reasons.   i rather think that the people of Gaza must be making their own food ... growing it ... harvesting it ... and cooking and canning it for the winter.   i want some pictures of them doing that.
Seth Russell: ... or not ... perhaps they are starving.   i need to know.
Mostafa Muhammad Tariq Almahdy: Yes, that's if they are allowed. You need to live in security to do that.
Seth Russell: well nobody could disallow them from feeding themselves ... that is a thought beyond comprehension.
Mostafa Muhammad Tariq Almahdy: They live under bombs, detention, air strikes, etc. You're didn't live in the situation. It's a war zone.
Seth Russell: yes i know Mostafa.   nevertheless they must be either eating food or starving.   i need some real information about how they are eating ... pictures ... perhaps a contact with somebody who is making food in gaza.
Mostafa Muhammad Tariq Almahdy: You need to either go to Gaza, or to contact a jouranlist in the U.S who covers the incident there.
Seth Russell: well i am not going to Gaza.  i am an old man and cannot travel that far.   i don't know anybody who is covering the food situation in gaza.  could you perhaps find somebody who actually knows how food is being made in Gaza for me?
Mostafa Muhammad Tariq Almahdy: I have no decisive information to give you on that regard.
Mostafa Muhammad Tariq Almahdy: You need unbiased eye witnesses.
Seth Russell: yes ... and you are quite a bit closer to that than i am.
Mostafa Muhammad Tariq Almahdy: Well, I am glad you care for such a critical issue. I will do my best to find out the most reliable and the most authentic information for you.
Seth Russell: well thank you :)
Mostafa Muhammad Tariq Almahdy: You're welcome. But it'll take me sometime, as I am not in direct contact with people who live there or who cover the dialy events there.
Seth Russell: well it will take just as long as it does :)
Seth Russell: there is a food revolution going on, even in the states here.  i am thinking this can be a link to the oppressed Palestinians ... a connection ... that could help both sides.   food is a way we live together.   follow the food ... er, not the money.
Seth Russell: do you mind if i publish this dialogue?
Mostafa Muhammad Tariq Almahdy: Where are you going to publish it?
Seth Russell: i don't know if i will ... or where ... probably just on my blog ... then perhaps even on Facebook.  but right now there is not much to say about it ... unless some real connection can be made with people in Gaza making their own food.
Mostafa Muhammad Tariq Almahdy: Well, I wouldn't mind for sure.
Seth Russell: ok thanks :)
Mostafa Muhammad Tariq Almahdy: You're more than welcome.
Seth Russell: :)
Mostafa Muhammad Tariq Almahdy: How people in the U.S look at us? Generally speaking?
Seth Russell: well people here are scared of ISIS
Mostafa Muhammad Tariq Almahdy: Of course, Isis is a corrupted, a debased cult which highjacks the name of Islam for political interests, just as Israel highjacks the name of Judaism for the same reason.
Seth Russell: hmmm ...
Mostafa Muhammad Tariq Almahdy: But tell me, where did Isis first appear? Who constituted the ground for its growth?
Seth Russell: well Bush's invasion of IRAQ did not help
Mostafa Muhammad Tariq Almahdy: What it didn't help?
Seth Russell: well we could say that differently .... Bush's invasion of Iraq contributed to the situation in which Isis emerged.
Mostafa Muhammad Tariq Almahdy: Well, I agree with you. The production of terrorism starts with aggression.
Seth Russell: yes
Mostafa Muhammad Tariq Almahdy: What was the American perspective when Bush wanted to invade Iraq?
Seth Russell: fear of Sadam Houssain
Mostafa Muhammad Tariq Almahdy: So people there were effected with the media propaganda.
Seth Russell: yep, people will be people ... media and demigods fire up public opinion for their own power ... same over there i think
Mostafa Muhammad Tariq Almahdy: That's very true.
Seth Russell: yep
Seth Russell: but people still have to eat ... they can't eat power ... and they can't eat money ... and they can't eat propoganda
Mostafa Muhammad Tariq Almahdy: Do you have a food problem yourself?
Seth Russell: lol ... yes i eat too much
Seth Russell: do you see my food postings?
Seth Russell: http://fastblogit.com/tags/food
Seth Russell: i am the toothless foodie
Seth Russell: https://plus.google.com/explore/toothlessfoodie
Mostafa Muhammad Tariq Almahdy: I clicked on the link, and it says; "No more beyond this point".
Seth Russell: hmmm ... only when you have read all of the pages
Mostafa Muhammad Tariq Almahdy: I just found this phrase.
Seth Russell: well you get that message when you keep clicking on the "earlier items" button and end up reading all of the pages.  there are a lot of items that i published on my blog about food. 
Seth Russell: ... or maybe some error occured
Seth Russell: are you using smart phone or desk top computer?
Mostafa Muhammad Tariq Almahdy: Perhaps, please post the link again to me on Facebook, send it as a message.
Seth Russell: ok i will post it to you privately as a status on your wall
Seth Russell: done
