[From a note to a new friend]

Jesus was not central to himself, and said, "Love as I have Loved." Well if He
was not central to His life, nor is He to be central to ours. Love, and more
specifically, Love of the neediest among us was central to His
life, and is to be central to the life of those that follow His Teaching.

Your Loving brother, Start

ps: "If you love me you will do greater works than these." CJ
We've made a fetish of Jesus. He would be horrified. We are ALL born to be
Sons and Daughters of Our Father, and Jesus died to have us Join Him in being one,
just one.


Friends - HUGE!!!!!! Pls GET THIS SEEN!!!!!!!!!!

URGENT: [GazaFriends] First Ship Sets Sail for Gaza

PRESS RELEASE

Israel's Intimidation Tactics Won't Stop Us
First Ship Sets Sail for Gaza!


London – 14 May 2010 – At 22:45 local time tonight, the MV Rachel Corrie, a 1200-ton cargo ship, part of the eight-vessel Freedom Flotilla, set sail from Ireland on its way to the Mediterranean Sea. There, ships from Turkey and Greece will join her, then sail to Gaza.

 

This past week reports from Israel have indicated that the Israeli authorities will not allow the Freedom Flotilla to reach Gaza with its cargo of much-needed reconstruction material, medical equipment, and school supplies. According to Israeli news sources, clear orders have been issued to prevent the ships from reaching Gaza, even if this necessitates military violence.


The Free Gaza Movement, which has launched eight other sea missions to Gaza, confirms that Israel has tried these kinds of threats and intimidation tactics before in order to try to stop the missions before they start. "They have not deterred us before and will not deter us now,"  said one of the organizers.

 

Ship to Gaza -- Sweden, a Freedom Flotilla coalition partner, together with parliamentarian Mehmet Kaplan (Green Party) yesterday asked for an audience with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Sweden, Carl Bildt, to discuss what measures the Swedish government and the European Union will take to protect the Freedom Flotilla's peaceful, humanitarian voyage. Earlier this week during a meeting with the European Campaign to End the Siege on Gaza – another coalition partner, Turkish Prime Minister Tayyib Erdogan expressed his support for "breaking the oppressive siege on the Gaza Strip...which is at the top of Turkey's list of priorities."

 

Coalition partners, Ship to Gaza – Greece and the Turkish relief organization IHH, stressed that the ships, passengers, and cargo will be checked at each port of departure, making it clear that we constitute no security threat to Israel.

 

Israel's threats to attack unarmed civilians aboard vessels carrying reconstruction aid are outrageous and indicative of the cruel and violent nature of Israel's policies towards Gaza.  The Freedom Flotilla is acting in line with universal principals of human rights and justice in defying a blockade identified as illegal by the UN and other humanitarian organizations. Palestinians in Gaza have a right to the thousands of basic supplies that Israel bans from entering, including cement and schoolbooks, as well as a right to access the outside world. The Freedom Flotilla coalition calls on all signatories to the Fourth Geneva Conventions to pressure Israel to adhere to its obligations under international humanitarian law, to end the lethal blockade on Gaza, and to refrain from attacking this peaceful convoy.

 

 

 

The Freedom Flotilla Coalition is comprised of: Free Gaza Movement (FG), European Campaign to End the Siege of Gaza (ECESG), Insani Yardim Vakfi (IHH), Ship to Gaza Greece, Ship to Gaza Sweden, and the International Committee to Lift the Siege on Gaza, with hundreds of groups and organizations around the world supporting the effort.

"Rosanne" Barr - "I want to do a full segment on [Start]." " SL

She was in the park with a video crew as I came off shift at the
Vigil http://www.prop1.org .  Something about my appearance
caught her attention :-)  and she interviewed me.  She seemed
quite taken.  It was cool.  Her work has always been important.  SL

"I detest the word "peace." " SL

Part of a rant I shared with my beloved sister:

'I detest the word "peace."  Huh?????
In my experience, 99.999999999999% of the time, behind it is some deadly,
magical thinking that saying "peace," giving the "peace sign,"  wearing
beads, singing songs is somehow going to make people put down their
weapons.  Not me!  As they do it in front of a world with 28 million children starving
to death, these over-privileged "peace" sayers, which invariably they are,
make me want to doubly want to pick up a gun - first to shoot them, and
then to go take by force the food that the children need; that rightfully
BELONGS to those children!!!!!  (NO, I would NEVER pick up the gun, and
I would take a bullet FOR any of these, my brothers and sisters.)

At the vigil, to the knee-jerk (what's the opposite of salutation?) word "peace," I
reply- "PeaceMAKING!"

I don't know if anyone "gets it" when I say this.

"I came not to bring peace, but to divide with a sword."  Christ Jesus

"Blessed are the PeaceMAKERS."  Christ Jesus

LOVE YOU.
