Daughters of Allah Arab Techno from Homeless Balloon on Vimeo.

Original music composition from Homeless Balloon (Helge Krabye) taken from the album “Travel in Silence” by Homeless Balloon. This video is a personal political protest against the growth of political, violent movements like IS (ISIL) and the practice of Sharia law. I am also against the American, European and Israelic military attacks that have killed thousands of innocent people. Unless the countries of North Africa and the Middle East start to separate politics from religion, start believing in humanism and begin practicing democracy on all areas of their societies, I don’t believe there is any hope for our little planet.

I have received negative response to the title of this composition from several muslim men. The title needs an explanation. In the original Arabian religion that existed before Muhammed was born (570 ac), they believed that Allah had three daughters. According to their traditions they acted as Allah’s intercessors. I know that Muhammed disapproved this old belief, but personally I find it fascinating and also very modern. In many cultures around the world, the woman is still the “nigger of the world”, to quote John Lennon. The expression “daughters of allah” is sometimes used to honour those women who stand up for their rights and also try to fight violence and men’s power. I support those women, and if we give them the freedom they deserve and begin listening to them, there may be hope for our little planet after all. Check the quote on the screen just after the video where Muhammad Ali Jinnah (the founder of Pakistan) says: “There are two powers in the world; one is the sword and the other is the pen. There is a great competition and rivalry between the two. There is a third power stronger than both, that of the women.”
