Dana is my three-year-old niece. A great conversationalist I tell you, who speaks in the sing songy Bahraini accent of yesteryear. Don't where where she picked it from, but it is a mix between Riffa3i and Muharraqi. hehe .. too alien to my Ba7rani ears!

I enjoy chatting to her on MSN, on quiet days, when I manage to get her attention from slaying the monsters and squashing the beasts in her computer games.

Dana: Auntie Amoor.. Will you slay the monster? (Khalah Amoor.. eddeb7een el wahsh?)
Amira: No Dana. I will leave that to Allah. (la Dana. Allah yakhdheh)
Dana: Why? Do you have an Allah in Canada? (laysh..intu 3indikum Allah fee Canada?)

hehe
Just as her toddler brother thinks I am inside the computer, she thinks that Allah is restricted to Bahrain!

Had she been older I would have grilled her! What makes her think there is an Allah in Bahrain only? Or Allah in the whole of the Middle East, where the most Allah-fearing people live under the most Allah-doesn't-matter-to-us-regimes in the world!

But she is only a child and we are all His children.. and one day.. just one day.. we will be able to grow up and deserve to be treated like adults!

but then again the conservatives did win the election so...

SBG: we need god-loving, people-loving - people.

Why should one fear God? I never feared my mom... as a kid I feared losing her love.
