What does it mean to be Hungarian when living in New York ?
That was the topic of a Hungarian documentary on our national sat channel Duna TV .

Old couple left Hungary 25 years ago :

( speaking broken Hungarian )
We do not miss Hungary at all .We were so much fed up with that country !I felt like home at once here in NY !

Middle aged man with a little toddler

I came because i was fed up with the situation ! if you work a lot in the USA you will have a lots of money ! If you work hard in Hungary you will die early !
People in Hungary are jealous ,backward and everything so predictable ! Here everything is new and modern and life is full of surprise !

( then he is singing for his toddler a Hungarian song who is dancing happily )Then he goes on :
Do you think we are happy here ! (Then suddenly his eyes are gleaming with tears )
How many times I ask myself what I am doing here living at the edge of the black slum .
What can I do ?

Smiling bold guy at the central park

i do not remember his words well - but I remember his Hungarian was perfect and he told nothing bad about Hungary except the bad economic situation he mentioned

Teenagers at the top of the Empire State building

It is in Hungary where we wish to live . Where life is natural .Budapest is the city we want in stead of New York . Where you can meet people we know - where we have our buddies where we just take a tram or bus and find ourselves in the deep forest .
Here in New York - all is about money . Most people probably do not have normal social life . Central park - it is so artificial compared to Buda hills !



Sting - the pop singer message to the Hungarians
You can travel nowadays anywhere in the world . So go and see the world for 2 years . Then return ! You got a charming city Budapest !


I was sooo happy to see that the younger generation does not look down at his own homeland ! It was food for my soul ! And those who left before and speak broken Hungarian with full of disdain towards their own country I say : time has changed - you used to act as half -gods when visiting Hungary .When telling stories to people who were not allowed to leave the country .Nowadays you became so passe so ridiculous ! Wake up !

MY AWARD WINING T-SHIRT DESIGN WITH A SWAN

I have got an award Today's Best Award at Zazzle.com the other day .



It is digital painting inspired by childhood memories . I used to see swans I think at the ponds of my hometown right in the town centre . Every time when we had to go there to see a doctor or buy something at the department store we stopped a little bit to see the swans and the watermill's wheel which looked so frightening to me .especially when gypsy kids used to climb on it while it was turning round and round .It was a real wonder for me as a kid and it still amazes me as an adult . I really was born in a very special place . I mean that not every town has a watermill and pond with swans in their center .


Check out my other romantic gifts as well !

OBAMA WAS SILENT

“Nobody is suffering more than the Palestinian people.” HE TOLD SO 2 YEARS AGO



WHY DID NOT HE REPEAT THESE WORDS WHILE GAZA KIDS WERE MASSACRED ?

( I will delete all my pro obama designs )


To all the child victims of Gaza 2009 !
I saw my mother dying
I saw all my brothers and sisters dead
I tried to rescue my brothers and sisters
I brought some fruit for my brother
My other brother also asked me for some food
So I brought them tomatoes
Then we fell asleep
Then we woke up
I tried to wake them up
But they were all dead


A little boy from Gaza ( around 5-6 years old -he had spent 4 days next to this dead relatives before help arrived )

So the bombs stopped dropping for a while .The people in Gaza have some time to pull out the dead bodies got trapped under the rubble .
Sarkozy and the others I even hate to write their names - the so called Western state men were in a hurry to have lunch or dinner with their good buddy Olmert .
The corpses of the children are still under the rubble .
And they are having dinner together !

Bon apetit !

The Children of Palestine

It is horrible that people of Gaza are being killed by snipers as well as their parents and other siblings. It seems that Palestinian life is not worth much these days. Do we know the names of those killed? Who is keeping a record?

Keep the record, write the history or forever be lost. Care about your neighbors and every human life .

If not be forgotten like the Israeli invasion of 1982.

Blurb on Gaza


As a human being, I am totaly saddened just to read or hear about what Israel is doing to Gaza. Israelis to take such cruel action against Gaza who are no match to them, how do they feel, happy, glorious, successful or is this a sacrifice they need to make.

My Dear Friends !

I would like to tell you about our sunny days in Doha . I would like to describe how beautiful the weather is - how wonderfully our kids were playing in the park - how great was our weekend when I felt strongly yes I felt our wealth are the kids and the joyful moments we can give them . I would like to tell you all the joy of the springlike weather - but still I am haunted by the images of child victims in Gaza .
That little girl whose face was red totally by the blood .She looked like my little daughter - wearing jeans and pink tee .Just she was dead . And the others - the babies , the teens ...
And there are things that you can not describe , no picture can show you how much these little ones had suffered by the fear and those who are alive still suffering !It is not over .Jews , Buddhist ,Christian ,atheist spoke up against the war on Gaza .But it goes on .
What 's for ? It is not even clear !

BLURB ON GAZA WAR

In our civilized society , any harm to Children is punished severely by the law and is one of the most despicable act someone can do. My heart tears up when i see children in Gaza being slaughtered while the whole world watches without doing noting. I am a pacifist in nature. I do not believe in war. But for the first time in my adult lifetime, I wish i was fighting on the side of the palestinian.

Raising Yousuf and Noor: diary of a Palestinian mother

In light of the fighting in Gaza and in Israel, Israeli human rights groups are working together to inform the Israeli public of the impact on civilians, particularly regarding events that are not reported by the media.

Louisa Waugh’s blogs focus on the ups and downs of everyday life, whether in times of bombardment or ceasefire. When the war reporters leave, life goes on – and this blog puts us in amongst it.


Open Letter to Israeli Soldiers: Jews call on Israeli soldiers to stop War Crimes
It's a beautiful day here in Doha . It is around 20 C degree - no wind .Around noon time the park it's full of families , tourists , members of a sport club are taking photographs by the sea
Is it a beautiful time in Gaza as well ? I ask myself . A young men watching sadly in front of himself .
Does he have someone special in Gaza ?
My child is brooding .One of her classmates did not come back from winter holiday .From Gaza .

I read somewhere that the Israeli support this war mainly because they feel very bad over their failure in Lebanon 2 years ago .

Let's see if there is anything to feel all right now : children walking home from school are attacked the very first day of the war , residential areas are being bombed , hundreds of children smashed ,dismembered or bleeding to death .Bombed areas blockaded by the Israeli army for the ambulance can not reach them . Children who survived are crying themselves to death next to their dead parents because nowhere any help .

Snipers ,phosphorus bomb ,depleted uranium ...

Are they feeling really better now ?
Are they sane ?

The present Palestinian government was elected by democratic way by the people of Gaza .
Israel has been punishing the people of Gaza for their choice by blockading food and medicine .And now the war .
The end of the war and the whole crisis should be based on justice .

Will his efforts bring any results ? That is the main question nowadays .

"war is so passe "

Middle East columnist
Thoughts of a senior Arab citizen :Last week all the Arabs were laughing at Bush and the shoes thrown into his face ! This week they punish the Arabs by bombing Gaza .

BLURB OF MY FIVE YEAR OLD :
