Big Ideas: The women’s war in the Middle East – women’s First World War service in Egypt, Gallipoli, Mesopotamia and Palestine

Nadia Atia is Lecturer in World Literature at Queen Mary, University of London. Her research examines the literature and cultural history of the First World War outside Europe. Her work explores how ideologies of race and empire shaped the ways in which British travellers, archaeologists, servicemen and women from different classes and professional backgrounds interacted with and represented the region now known as Iraq, in the early 20th century. In particular, she examines their interactions with the Indian, African, Afro-Caribbean, Egyptian or Chinese workers and military personnel who played such a crucial role in the war, but whose presence is not a familiar one in many accounts of the First World War.

    I am actually step by step discovering the multidimensional and multitimeline life that we live. How ever the current for the grounded people is more live although I noticed that as if we were going through would war one in some sort of away even old airplanes showed upon the sky but for something that I sincerely request to be cleared for me is that why or what different there is about me than others despite of renewing immortality is there some sort of a relationship that I have to past lives that I entitles me to something or some enheritence because now truly I needed if such a thing exist but for one thing I know that the Egyptian wealth somehow is related to me I have even took a pick of their digital domns and it is in my heart desire whoever treats me well and teach me things I need to know this wealth being sured with other wise no other superstition or make believe things such as steeling money from me is going to change the fact that I have appeared as the only beneficiary soul to the ancient currency. I’ll be letting go of my hold when my own personal requirements is been met and for that I need some advocate who understands what I’m saying and will not try to distract me for nothing else this wealth is invested in my pen the power of it manifests things that I write down however to some servants respond and to others they oppose but I have come to the end of the road I will loose my hold when I see truthfulness and recognition for the open government license thank you for awakening me of it but you must know perhaps awakening some people to their past lives are easier but mine is a bit stuck and I really nead some one in person to help me like the British intelligence officer girl who once I met in the bar but I was doubtful now I see that she was trying to help but there is no need to be afraid of any evil organization or community because if something is to be feared it’s me that should be afraid of for I have a back up insurance policy that my death would be Nuclear explosion like an phenomenon and they know about it that’s why they don’t dear to approach and this phenomenon would pass away when I’ll be satisfied with the life that I’ll be living. From now on I don’t allow anyone to exploit the ancient wealth not even the Rothschild and until My sure of it has been picked out and officialized and announced I won’t release anything of the wealth and about the open government license send me an advocate who could remind me of the things that needs to be reminded so I could find a current role in this life time and see what destiny brings forth
