Psychotherapy - Overrated in the West and Underrated in the Middle East

What is Psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is an intentional interpersonal relationship used by trained psychotherapists to aid a client in problems of living. It aims to increase the individual's sense of well-being and reduce their subjective sense of discomfort. Psychotherapists employ a range of techniques based on experiential relationship building, dialogue, communication and behavior change and that are designed to improve the mental health of a client or patient, or to improve group relationships (such as in a family). Psychotherapy may be performed by practitioners with a number of different qualifications, including psychologists, marriage and family therapists, licensed clinical social workers, counselors, psychiatric nurses, and psychiatrists.

In the West

Every American family should have a family therapist (psychotherapist). Also in other Western countries. Family therapists are must-haves. They are recommended when anything goes wrong, family relationships, friendship, relationships, business, shocks, diseases, deaths, etc.

Now the problem here is that Westerns take it to the extreme. Many people can't lead a life without their therapist. They pay more than $500 a month on regular therapy when they have nothing wrong with their lives. They constantly seek advice creating a permanent inability to make the right choices themselves or to plan their lives the way they want. The therapist will do all the decision making basing his advice on the givens received from the client (patient). This creates, in my opinion, an emotional attachment with the therapist if the client and the therapist are from different sexes.

Race vs. Sects

For hundreds of years, the West have been suffering from the extreme racial discrimination. Black vs White. Red vs. White. Yellow vs. White. Yellow vs. Black. However you put them, they deep inside have this sense of discrimination where every race sticks and speaks for its people and by that I mean the same race. Any kind of discrimination is considered jealousy and self unsatisfaction.

The major racial problem in the West is between the Black people and the White people, regardless of religion or nationality. We see this problem in movies, in documentaries and even in the news. Its a big problem.

Middle Easterns can't understand how the Westerns are living together when they have this huge racial issue going on. I talked to many people in the Middle East about what they think of this particular problem in the West, most of them agreed that it's something very bad and unnecessary, and few of them were very much into discriminating races themselves, which in my opinion it's a "cool" thing to do in the Middle East, being a racist is like being a Western.

When the people in the Middle East are laughing on the Westerns, they seem to forget that they have a bigger and much more dangerous discrimination issues, I wish I can say religious, but it unfortunately extends to sectarian discrimination. They mock the West when they themselves suffer from the worst.

Honor Killings are the Ugliest Forms of Domestic Violence in the West

Amina Said (L), 18, and her sister Sarah, 17, were shot dead by their father Yaser at their home in Irving, Texas, in January 2008. Said was upset by his daughters' "Western ways" and was assisted in the killing by his wife, the girls' mother. The victims of honor killings are largely teenage daughters or young women. Unlike ordinary domestic violence, honor killings often involve multiple family members as perpetrators.

Another example:

On February 12, 2009, Muzzammil Hassan informed police that he had beheaded his wife. Hassan had emigrated to the United States 30 years ago and, after a successful banking career, had founded Bridges TV, a Muslim-interest network which aims, according to its website, "to foster a greater understanding among many cultures and diverse populations." Erie County District Attorney Frank A. Sedita III told The Buffalo News that "this is the worst form of domestic violence possible," and Khalid Qazi, president of the Muslim Public Affairs Council of Western New York, told the New York Post that Islam forbids such domestic violence. While Muslim advocacy organizations argue that honor killings are a misnomer stigmatizing Muslims for what is simply domestic violence, a problem that has nothing to do with religion, Phyllis Chesler, who just completed a study of more than 50 instances of North American honor killings, says the evidence suggest otherwise. — The Editors

Many Muslim Middle Easterns men are living in the West, working with the West, selling Western goods and services. Yet, they don't allow their wives, sisters or daughters to acquire a Westernized mentality because it's religiously forbidden "HARAM". If they disobey, they will be domestically violated and killed in the ugliest of ways.

Statutory Rape in the West - Marriage in The Middle East


What is Statutory Rape?

It is a term used describing the act of consensual sexual activity between an adult and a minor, considering that the minor had reached puberty not before. Otherwise it would be called Child Molestation. For more details CLICK HERE

This is one of the most controversial issues between the West and the Middle I will start by creating two different scenarios.

West Scenario:

A 17 year old guy was dating a 15 year old girl. They had sex because they "loved" each other. Two years they've been together, she's now 17 and the guy is 19. If the parents find out about the sexual activity and were AH's, they can report the guy and he will be accused of statutory rape. All because he is an adult and she is a minor. He will be charged because he was having consensual sex with a girl who is under the consensual age. Why is it fixed that an under 18 girl can't have sex with an adult man? Is 18 the perfect age?

Barack Hussein Obama - Hope for The Middle East

The Middle East was shocked. They didn't even believe that an African American candidate can even make it to the elections, or can even be capable of creating a successful campaign. All Middle Easterns were excited. They thought: "Okay, so Obama has an Islamic side of him, he is also African American so he can feel the pain we went through." This is what everyone I talked to told me about Obama. The Middle East has great high hopes for this presidency.

I start to wonder, why would we have such high hopes from an American president? Aren't Middle Easterns supposed to feel this hope from their own leaders. The Middle East looks at the West as a saviour and a killer at the same time. They had such high hopes for George W. Bush, well, he disappointed all Arabs and Middle Easterns in every possible way. Now they are hoping for a radical change in the Middle East regions during the presidency of Barack Obama.

We think in a really weird way. Many of us refuse to be controlled by the West, however, we care alot about what the west thinks and who will be their leaders. It's contradictory as we get happy and sad about who will control us although we refuse to be controlled. I don't know if I am making any sense, but it hurts me to feel that I need someone from a far far away country to feel secure. The West is granting us security and taking it away. We are just standing still doing nothing, and I don't expect us to do anything because we are outstanding in talking and they are so good in taking actions.

The Arrivals - Review

The Arrivals is a series of short videos that are aimed to show us all the religious signs that prove the foundation of all requirements for the existence of the Anti-Christ, Al Mahdi and the second coming of the Christ. Each episode proves a point.

The claim to have researched the Holy Quran, the Bible and the Torah. I watched most episodes and none of them show any evidence from the Bible or the Torah, only the Holy Quran. I wasn't very pleased at them using some sexual images to prove some points.

Recently they had been threatened and hacked by an unknown person, but they fixed the issue. I was confused because they provide strong evidences on the Islam religion forgetting the other two. I see this project as a project to brain wash the Middle Eastern Muslims into believing that the end is approaching. This can have a great impact on a large scale.

Some videos are posted in YouTube and others are posted on their website, The Wake Up Project. The name is a bit direct, I personally like it, but I expected more informative information than just providing theoretical connection between Islam and the end of the world. After watching their episodes, if I was not aware of the whole propaganda, I would've left everything behind and dedicated my self solely to religion.

I am not against Islam as I am a Muslim myself. But I am very disapproving to showing the extreme part of it where everyone should be convinced that Islam is their only choice and the others are Kuffar/Non Believers. I believe God has introduced us to three religions for a reason, if you look at them and study them closely you will find out that they are targeting the same God, but using different methods to reach out to him.

Back to The Arrivals. I believe that it's another way to show the extreme side of us to the West. The West will create more foundations and organizations like Memri TV to fight it. In The Arrivals, they mention that Islam is a peaceful religion that fills the world with understanding and harmony. This is true, as every other religion believes the same too.

MEMRI TV - Exposing the Extreme Nature of the Middle East

What is Memri TV?

The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) was founded in 1998 in Washington, DC to bridge the language gap between the Middle East and the West by monitoring, translating, and studying Arab, Iranian and Turkish media, schoolbooks, and religious sermons. MEMRI is headquartered in Washington, D.C. and has branches in Baghdad, Tokyo and Jerusalem, and a staff of over 70 working around the globe. MEMRI's research is translated into English, German, French, Italian, and Spanish with a subscriber list of over 75,000. MEMRI is a 501 (c)3 organization and is incorporated in Washington, D.C.

This is unfair to the Middle Easterns. This website is actually showing the world only the extreme religious part of the Middle East. They are making all Arabs seem like bad people who want to sacrifice their children and brainwash them into growing up as terrorists. The video I added will show a very ugly part of the Middle Eastern culture and beliefs. Forgetting that the minorities they mentioned are in the Middle East. Islam and Christians live in harmony together in the Middle East. There are also Jews in the Middle East, Arab Jews and not Israelis. The school books, TV channels and TV shows Memeri is translating are work of Muslim extremists. The Christians are minorities in the Middle East as well as Muslim extremists. This might be shocking but it's true.
