I said the Hebrew greeting “Peace be upon you” (שלום עליכם shalom ʻalekem) to Google Voice Search but got results for “Sean O’Callaghan.” 😕

🕯 On 31 August 2004, Islamic fundamentalist terrorist organization Ḥamas, an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood, blew up two buses in Beʼer Shebaʻ, killing sixteen Israeli civilians, including a small child on his mother’s lap, and injuring over a hundred others. 🚌 🚌

📰 Islamic extremism destroys the history of Near Eastern peoples. The Temple of Baalshamin stood over 1800 years in Syria until ISIL came along. 😠

“The destruction of the temple is just the latest in a string of horrors that the Islamic State has inflicted upon Palmyra since seizing the city in May. Last week, the group beheaded Khalid al‐Asaad, 83, who had served as the chief of the city’s antiquities department for more than 50 years. After they killed him, Islamic State militants strung up his headless body as a warning to others. Last month, the group demolished half a dozen ancient statues, smashing them with sledge hammers, and in June they blew up two historic tombs.”

Islamic State militants have detonated explosives around the Temple of Baalshamin, one of the most grand and well-preserved structures at the ancient ruins.

🖺 Rob Mackay, “Unlock and Re‐Imagine Historic Abandoned Cemetery in Jackson Heights,” Crain’s 5boros, 20 Aug. 2015.
If Caleb Leverich were alive today, he’d be celebrating what’s happening above his tomb. The son of an English minister who immigrated to Queens in 1633, this prominent local son built a colonial homestead and family burial ground in the vicinity of 71st Street and 35th Avenue in Jackson Heights. Sometime in the mid 1800s, his…

The course of events in the West Bank:
• Weekly anti‐Israel riots take place in Nabi Ṣaliḥ.
• As he has repeatedly done for years, fanatical Israel‐hater and “activist” Bassem al‐Tamimi endangers his teenage son and daughter’s lives by encouraging them to angrily and defiantly confront armed Israeli soldiers.
• They do so. This time around, his son attacks a soldier by lobbing stones at him.
• The soldier then approaches the young man and tries to arrest or detain him.
• Then the adjacent women attack the soldier by screaming at him, slapping him, biting him and pulling at his clothing.
• The soldier was the only one attacked, but the anti‐Israel media spin an outrageous yarn that he was “attacking,” even “kidnaping,” the boy at “gunpoint” (when he did not even use the gun) and mischaracterize the women’s action as some sort of valiant resistance.
• A gullible world somehow believes it and bafflingly condemns Israel and Zionism rather than the actual attackers in this incident.

Go know!

-->The UK Telegraph and Daily Mail retreat from a story about alleged Israeli brutality towards a Palestinian child, recognizing that the players in question have a history of manipulating journalists in Nabi Saleh.

🚿 It seems a warm shower acts a bit like a warm compress and somewhat relieves my sciatica (and I feel like an old man for noting that). 👴

These are the ideographs (three emoji characters and an Egyptian hieroglyph) that I used in my sciatica post, arranged like a comic strip to be read from left to right and lightheartedly portraying how my walking was affected by sciatic pain.

🚶 PEDESTRIAN
💥 COLLISION SYMBOL (here representing the sudden onset of pain)
😧 ANGUISHED FACE
𓀗 EGYPTIAN HIEROGLYPH A019 (“bent man with cane,” “be infirm; old …”)

• The glyphs for the first three characters (🚶, 💥, 😧) are from the Twitter Emoji set, developed by Twitter with the Iconfactory, under a Creative Commons license.
• The glyph for the final character (𓀗) is from the open‐source Noto Sans Egyptian Hieroglyphs font, commissioned by Google, under the Apache License.

Introduction
✓⃝  Gay, progressive/leftist, atheist/secular Jewish–New Yorker fascinated with language, old and/or ethnic music, gay historical research etc.

Copied from Facebook and slightly revised
Gay, progressive/leftist Jewish–New Yorker seeks your love and affection.

I am a gay, ideologically progressive Jewish–New Yorker, born in the Bronx of partly Ashkenazi and partly Mizraḥi ancestry. I am involved in the “bear” community. I moved to the neighborhood of Ramat Ben Yaʻaqob רמת בן יעקב (a.k.a Jackson Heights, Queens) in 2008 and am now involved in the social organizations here.

Interests:
 Linguistics, particularly orthography, etymology and phonology.
▸ Atheism and Humanism, particularly the preservation by secularization of Jewish, Near Eastern, Central Asian and North African culture.
▸ Jewish, Near Eastern, Central Asian and North African music!
▸ Documentary photography. Look at all the pictures I’ve taken!

☞ My e-mail address is not elyaqim at gmail dot com! Someone else is receiving your letters to me if you send them to that address. I am also not the person with the user name elyaqim on Twitter.

☞ I tend to overuse characters beyond Unicode’s Basic Multilingual Plane in my content. If you see rectangles (▯▯▯▯) or question marks (????) in my text, you may want to download a free font that supports those characters.

From my ’blog
Elyaqim Mosheh Adam (a.k.a. Mark) is a gay Jewish–New Yorker who promotes his photography, videography and writing here, and who may be reasonably expected to write on any combination of the following:

• Linguistics, particularly as relevant to the populations mentioned above;
• Progressive or Leftist topics;
