Dear Deviants,

where shall I start....

Those of you who are following me on facebook (Soufeina Tuffix Ha) will know that there is so much going on, lately. Besides working at a local company while preparing my master's thesis, this all happened the last months (art-related of course):

After my latest journal entry there were more interviews: "Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung", "Hamburger Abendblatt", "Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung" , "Spiegel Online", Turkish Newspaper "Zaman", two times in the "taz", "Islamische Zeitung" and "ZeitCampus".

I gave lectures at an event in Darmstadt, a school in Saarlouis and a church in Osnabrück.

Me and my work were shortly presented in the "Women in the World Summit" (typical guests of that NY event: Hillary Clinton, Angelina Jolie, Meryl Streep..waaah). Moreover I had my works exhibited in Berlin at the "Islamwoche". 

Next week my works will bei displayed in the Institute for Intercultural Islamic studies at the University of Osnabrück, where I will be giving a lecture, too.

It feels as if it's all too much fuss for just some comics and cartoons but again: Alhamdulillah, I thank God for all these chances I get lately!

And thank you again for your support, deviantart was a great stepping stone!

Sadly, it shows only how muslims are trying to transform our beautiful world *?!*
When Very impressive drawning skills.
ill You stop showing the Islam as the best thing happened, and hiding all its minor's?
You are all the same, muslims. Never admit anything bad about you. I want to remind the audience, that talibans arent christian. Al-qaedia is not christian!

It comes from you, dear, Islam.
You personally could be not an terrorist, but someone who's actually practice your religion, is a one. It doesnt need any proofs and debates.
You are in Europa = live like an european. Otherwise, I recommend You to leave, and enjoy Your muslim ''tradition'' back in the middle- east.

Your,

I am sorry that you seem to feel threatened by the religion, that gives me personally so much peace. Of course, there are huge problems in the Muslim world, I am not trying to hide them, but I think they are shown and discussed in media more than enough. But most of them are political and social issues, caused by corruption, poverty, colonialism etc.
Why shouldn't I try a different approach in order to unite people? What would be the point of talking about everything that goes wrong in the world? I want people to feel less hatered, Muslims and non-Muslims alike.

You want me to live like a European, but what is that exactly? European history clearly shows, that European tradition is full of oriental impact, it is actually born in middle east. Thats what I have even learned in history classes in university. Besides, I am pretty sure that my lifestyle doesn't differ as much from yours as you think. In fact, I watch movies, I love Breaking Bad, I listen to music, read novels, meet friends etc.  - and I do pray 5 times a day and wear a headscarf, that's it.

I really hope that you will see these commonalities one day and that you try to empower them instead of trying to push me away into the middle-east (a place, that is as foreign for me as for you - I've never been there and my family neither)
