“Why cleavest thou to this mere name of tree,
So that thou art utterly balked and disappointed ?
Pass over names and look to qualities,
So that qualities may lead thee to essence”

(Teachings of Rumi, translated and abridged by E.H. Winfield, 1887. Book II, story 17; The Tree of Life)


Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Rūmī, also known as Jalāl ad-Dīn Muhammad Balkhī, Mevlânâ/Mawlānā, Mevlevî/Mawlawī, and more popularly simply as Rumi, was a 13th-century Persian Sunni Muslim poet, jurist, Islamic scholar, theologian, and Sufi mystic. Wikipedia

AND NOW FOR SOME DUTCH FUN: (LIKE THE BIG BROTHER, OUR INVENTION ! AND THE RED SWIVEL CHAIR (OUR INVENTION TOO ! ). Mr Lubach’s “America First Holland second” gone viral !

From the quite excellent, online, honk kong based (and owned by Ali Baba’s Mr Jack Ma) news source SCMP (South China Morning Post, mobile version bit strange) . Maybe as good as The Guardian,  or the FAZ. . Let’s also mention the Asia Times.

Do we want to be informed ? Or do we only want to hear what we want to hear all the time ?
Is the world still flat ? Or has it become round again ?

This the SCMP article and parodies on Mr Trump’s “America First” speech. Mind you that was the presidential inauguration speech ! Also has “America first XXX second” from India, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Indonesia, China, The Philines, France, Germany. And Nl of course.

FUN, FUNNY !
India second, or 1.5 because they being very adaptable
