Donald Trump our new Czar, the political ISIS of American politics, the one who beheaded more than a dozen career politicians on national TV during GOP debates. In his crusade against Muslims and Islam, the leader of the civilized world, replacing the leader of the free world, called for “a complete and total shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what the hell is going on.”
As he is now running the country, he came up with an unhinged, uncooked Executive Order to ban people from seven countries with a majority Muslim population. Watching Donald Trump vilifying our community is heartbreaking and unsettling for millions of Muslims. His erratic orders have caused huge chaos and disruption to thousands of families in our communities, but how though will this Muslim ban affect my gastronomy in America?!

Dancing in Cairo Street!!
The young ballerina, Nour Yasser went on a dancing spree across Cairo’s old streets, “she captivates city dwellers and passers-by, drawn to a scene unusual in Egypt’s conservative urban life.” reported the Cairo Scene. “Our project aim was to explore the beauty and diversity of Cairo.” photographers Mohamed Taher and Ahmed Fathy explained.
Egyptians have been dancing in the street for ages, at wedding, sports events, at religious social festivals, and in any occasions. The difference was, there wasn’t the intrusion of a camera.
I took up golfing right after realizing that I couldn’t play soccer anymore, couldn’t run, so I took walking as a sport, besides as a Muslim I wanted to be assimilated.
Growing up in Egypt I had never had a chance to play this illusive game or even come close to being on a golf course. Golf is still an individualistic and very much a disciplined game for someone who played and lived for a long time with the game of proximity and improvisation: the game of soccer. Golf needs a conservative mindset that uses linear thinking. Soccer is more liberal that requires a nonlinear mindset. GOLF is basically a men’s game – as men golfers say – stands for Guys Only Ladies Forbidden, Ha ha ha, don’t drop your beer.
