“If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality.”

Bishop Desmond Tutu




The Palestinian writer Afif Safieh has written:
If I were a Jew or a Gypsy, the Holocaust would be the most horrible event in history. If I were a Black African it would be Slavery and Apartheid. If I were a Native American, it would be the discovery of the New World by European explorers and settlers that resulted in near total extermination. If I were an Armenian it would be the Ottoman-Turkish massacres. And if I happen to be Palestinian, it would be the Nakba-Catastrophe. No one people has a monopoly on human suffering. It is not advisable to try to establish a hierarchy of suffering. Humanity should consider all the above as morally repugnant and politically unacceptable. And humanity is increasingly beginning to express its adhesion to the principle that there is only one mankind and not different kinds of men and women.

Even

Nothing is even, even this line
I am writing, even this line I am waiting in,
waiting for permission to enter

the country, the house, the room.
Nothing is even, even now
that laws have been drawn and peace
is discussed on high tables,
and even if all was said to be even
I would not believe for even I know
that nothing is even—not the trees,
the flowers, not the mountains or the shadows…
our nature is not even so why even try to get even
instead let us find an even better place
and call it even


Nathalie Handal



There will be oil to heal the wounds, and there will be olive branches to wave when peace arrives.

Human Beings come
from the same source.
We are one family.

If a part of the body hurts,
all parts contract with pain.

If you are not concerned
with another's suffering,
we shall not call you human.

Wild Fact About Me That's confidential.
My Philosophy Speak out against oppression, brutality and occupation.

We have only one planet, let's take care of it.
What Gives Me Hope There are people willing to put their lives in harms way to bring down the apartheid wall, help Palestinian fisherman fish, bring medical aid to Gaza and prevent another house from being destroyed by an Israeli bulldozer.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by I would bring home troops, stop military aid to Israel, bring down apartheid wall, end the siege and free Palestine. I realize that would be a tremendous feat but then becoming President is also a bit of a stretch.
What/who changed my life and why nightmares of war as a child, viewing deforestation of ancient forests as a teen, and kids, my love for them
