Final Writing Journal - Omar Shehadeh

Part one: My future reading and writing goals are to be able to comprehend most pieces of writing in a single reading session, particularly constitutional law. As for writing, I will work to become completely coherent in my thoughts and expressions, particularly articulating my ideas well. To continue upon these goals I will have to read more literature and attempt to write whenever possible to develop these skills. One book I want to read came up during my research, Refuting ISIS: A Rebuttal Of Its Religious And Ideological Foundations by Shaykh Muhammad Al-Yaqoubi. It is an Imam's point of view on ISIS and how he logically refutes their falicies. I have become more centralized in my faith since my class projects regarding Islam and I want to continue my education of Islam so I can better explain it to others. Another book I want to read is the Bible. The Qur'an teaches that the people who follow God's holy scriptures are all his follower's, and this includes the Bible and the Torah. I want to read both of these books as well to better understand my faith and god.

Part two: My wildest dream is to be able to unite the people of Isreal and Palestine. The bloodshed is pointless and a detriment to both sides. Children are caught in the crossfire, elderly as well. If something is not done now, then it will end in the genocide of the Palestinian people. If I could only do one thing in my life it would be to bring together both people and end the conflict.
