Tonight there was a protest forum against Motion 103 (which would have the Canadian Parliament condemn islamophobia, other religious discrimination, and systematic racism) hosted by Rebel Media’s Ezra Levant.

This is starting to feel a lot like a Donald Trump rally or a white supremacist gathering.

Mar Thecla Monastery - Ma'loula, Syria

The residents of Ma’loula speak a specific dialect of western Aramaic, scholars believe the dialect of Aramaic spoken by Jesus was of the same branch the residents speak.

Si sientes que no puedes más y que todo se desmorona, haz algo, levántate; no esperes a que nadie te salve, algo que aprendí con el tiempo es que uno mismo es su propio héroe.

Levante - Non me ne frega niente

Sogno
I dream

La pace nel mondo
World peace

Ma a casa sono brava a far la guerra
But when at home I’m good at waging war

La storia è sempre quella
It’s the same old story

Noi siamo tutti uguali
We’re all equal

Ma il colore della pelle conta
But the skin colour counts

Se parte la rivolta
If the revolt begins

Combatto con lo scudo dello schermo
I’ll fight with the shield of my screen

Le armi da tastiera
Keyboard weapons

Di giorno sto in trincea, lancio opinioni fino a sera
I’m in the trench during the day and throw opinions until night-time 

Non me ne frega niente
I do not give a shit

Se mentre rimango indifferente il mondo crolla
If while I remain indifferent the world collapses

E non mi prende
and doesn’t catch me

Non me frega niente
I don’t give a shit

Se mentre la gente grida aiuto io prego non capiti a me
If while people cry for help I pray it won’t happen to me

Non me ne frega niente, di niente
I don’t give a shit about anything

Scorrono immagini porno
Porn pictures pass by

Mi scandalizzo, inizia la bufera
I’m scandalised, the blizzard begins

Codardo chi non c'era
Coward is him who wasn’t there

A scrivere sul diario da che parte sta la verità
To write on his diary where the truth lies

Je suis Paris, madame
I am Paris, Madame

Ma in piazza scendo solo per il cane *
But I only I go down to the square for my dog
* it’s a pun: scendere in piazza can mean both “to take to the streets” and (lit.) “to go down to the square”

Non mi vogliate male
Don’t hate me

Ho sempre poco tempo per lottare senza il modem
I always have so little time to fight without my modem

Non me ne frega niente
I do not give a shit

Se mentre rimango indifferente il mondo crolla
If while I remain indifferent the world collapses

E non mi prende
and doesn’t catch me

Non me frega niente
I don’t give a shit

Se mentre la gente grida aiuto io prego non capiti a me
If while people cry for help I pray it won’t happen to me

Non me ne frega niente, di niente
I don’t give a shit about anything

Non me ne frega niente
I don’t give a shit

Se spente le luci tutto quello che succede non si vede
If once the lights are out you can’t see what’s happening

Ovunque andrai abbi cura di te,

cura dei tuoi guai.

Io ti ricorderò tra i miei desideri

e i sogni che la notte porta

e il giorno non cancella mai.

Un giorno poi abbi cura di me,

cura di noi.

Per ogni passo che ho fatto

per venire fino a te.

Per quelli che farei,

per quelli che farò.

Per non stancarmi mai.
