nd. Surgery update: Basically fine - tired, sore, sleeping more than normal. but quite functional EXCEPT my skin is not terribly allergic to one or two types of surgical tape! Blisters, hurts and stings a lot! I thought it was just the clear stuff they use now, but went to the clinic today, they changed it to a more traditional tape that seems to be doing more of the same! Huh? No word yet on the biopsy.
***** article. This is a wonderful, horrible, story of two great lives. Please read, and share. "DETROIT, 1972. A fiery Oklahoma basketball coach and a brilliant Chicago lawyer wouldn’t stand for racial inequality. But after they rankled the power structure, their lives unraveled until they were jobless, imprisoned and, ultimately, dead. The story of their civil rights crusade is finally told." http://www.latterlymagazine.com/ken-zacher-robert-ming-civil-rights/

article. "Christmas trees are offensive to Jews...." Haaretz: “Earlier this week a Christian Palestinian member of the Knesset requested to display a Christmas tree in the halls of parliament where he works as a lawmaker. Knesset speaker Yuli Edelstein rejected his request. Edelstein says the initiative is part of an Arab campaign to chip away at Israel's Jewish nature. He warned that if he had agreed he would then likely face further requests to display a cross and crescent in parliament.”

article. “Siding with life in the face of death”: photographer captures siege on Palestinians in Syria
***** article. detailed report. In East Jerusalem, Palestinians are under daily attack from the Israeli army, police and settlers. But this large-scale violence goes unreported in the mainstream Western media.
Actor Wallace Shawn in The Hollywood Reporter: "in my own lifetime (I was born in 1943) — the Palestinian people have been expelled from their land and subjected to unceasing and unjustifiable torment, including a brutal occupation and, in Gaza, a regime in which an entire population has been placed on a starvation diet -- -- - Anyone who learns more about what has happened can’t help but realize that the anger of the Palestinians cannot be ended by killing their children.

***** article. 'Congress and the US-Israel 'strategic partnership' ' TRAITORS. MADMEN. INSANITY. CRIMINALITY. The new law provides "a legal commitment to guarantee Israel's military superiority, making it 'stronger than all its opponents combined'. This law also dictates an increase in the number of American weapons stored in Israel to be used during times of emergency, valued at around $2 billion instead of $200 million at the moment...Thus, Israel has access to two arsenals; one built from US military support which provides it with the most up-to-date weapons, and the other from being handed the keys to American reserves."
***** article. ' Revisiting the British conquest of Jerusalem The day the British entered Jerusalem in 1917, Palestine's fate was sealed.' Wow. These western white chr'stian savages saw this as the conclusion of the Crusades!!!!!!!!!... and so therefore must have the Arab, Muslim world.

***** article. Washington Post: "Among Democratic and independent respondents, 82% and 81%, respectively, think that the United States should either abstain from voting or vote in favor of endorsing the establishment of a Palestinian state, compared with 52 percent of Republicans who would favor these approaches( that is considerable considering overall support for Israel among Republicans). Meanwhile, 69 % of female respondents favor the United States either abstaining from a vote or supporting the measure. This number jumps to 81% when looking among Democratic women. 84% of African Americans (both among Democrats and overall) and 78% of young Americans said the United States should either abstain from voting or favor the vote. 44 % of Hispanic Americans and 42 % of young people overall and 50 % of young Democrats favor economic sanctions or more serious action as a response to Israeli settlement building, and support imposing economic sanctions or taking more serious action over Israeli settlement building."
nd. With just a little luck I'll be going to Cathy's in PA till next monday... need a 'note' from the hospital, an early enough departure so Cathy can get back to a late afternoon obligation, and a 'release' from CCNV, all of which appears likely.

article. Headline: Police storm Sydney cafe to end hostage siege, three dead. ... I can think of no greater testament to the 'Peacefulness' of Islam, and Muslims... that it took 50 years for such outrage, retaliation, resistance, response to occur... after 70 years of US/Western Terrorism, Savagely, Sadism, Exploitation, Rape, Plunder, War Crimes, Crimes Against Humanity... that without letup the US has rained, and rains... on them.
'The greatest poverty I've seen in all the world is the Poverty of Spirit in the US.' Teresa of Calcutta paraphrase from 30-50 years ago.
[Side note: It is important, crucial... to periodically reflect such instances of Pure Loving in one's life, and or, such instances one knows of, even if in literature... for THIS is where we've seen God, the Creator, the Divine... Loving... and they must be the Star we steer by to be, become, and do the same... with every breath.]
If you are honest, Truthful, and that costs you friends and family, then what you are left with is your only True friends and family, if you ever had any to begin with. This has been my experience, without exception, and with each that has fallen away I feel lighter, faster, more healthy, less drained... with more energy for Loving. Note: 1. One can never lose True friends and family, right? 2. It makes me sad that we are not ALL Friends, Family... every creature. Deeply sad. But this is less and less the case in this deathly culture. The saving grace for me is refusing to not be a Friend TO every creature, as best as my limited means and abilities allow.
nd. A massive diversion of global human energy to empathy... is the only hope for human kind, and creation.
nd. I detest all organized religions, but more than that I detest ignorant, blind, hateful bigotry against any group and today in Amerika hatred and violence and lies against Muslims, and Arabs is totally approved, sanctioned, encouraged... and even demanded as patriotic. .

***** article. “No one has ever heard of a sad saint or a saint with a funeral face,” Pope Francis said Sunday. “Unheard of! It would be a contradiction. A Christian is a person who has a heart full of peace because he knows how to find his joy in the Lord even when passing through difficult moments of life,” he said.

nd. I am immensely defensive of Muslims and Islam against the vicious, brilliantly conceived, relentless savaging by western monied, chr'istian, and zionist hoards for the purpose of dehumanizing, raping and robbing Muslims for more than 70 years. I am immensely defensive of Muslims and Islam when I compare what I understand to be the record of 'chr'stians' vs Muslims in the world where 'chr'stians' have tortured and slaughtered in the name of Jesus hundreds of millions in north and south america, tortured and enslaved and lynched blacks in america, tortured and slaughtered 10s of millions of aborigines in australia, tortured and killed 10s of millions of blacks in congo, tortured, tormented, terrorized 10's of millions of blacks in south africa... and are now torturing, terrorizing, tormenting... millions of Palestinians. I know of no Muslim behavior that is in the same league as this. I am open to discovering I am incorrect... but there is much study of the scholarship ahead of me before I am confident I've gotten past the western propaganda to the truth. What I also know is while the chr'stian west was terrorizing Jews, the one place in the world where Jews were safe was the Muslim world. Finally, unlike Jesus who sought to rule the world of Spirit (tho he seems to have directed his disciples to strap on swords under certain circumstances) Mohammad was in a world not dominated by empire, but rife with inter-tribe warfare, and from what I can tell, so far, brought unprecedented peace and prosperity to the parts of the world he influenced... without the disgusting hedonism, excesses, lusts, intoxications... of the chr'stian west.
