nd. Every day I feel like I am drowning in my all day, every waking moments... spending every second to fight the torrent, the flood, the deluge, the ocean of invisibility of the cruel, savage, sadistic, inhumane, barbaric... Terrorisms of Israel / US on my Palestinians. Near literally all day long I read, repost, comment... on the tital wave of daily Naziesque Horrors visited on my Palestinian Family. When weather or health dictate, I do so from the homeless shelter, or a library; when weather and health permit... from in front of the White House, or on Capitol Hill where the congressscum must slither by. But fighting the tidal wave is what I do. I am not complaining. I am drowning. It is a drowning that could take decades to be terminal for me. I may have to break free for a while, not of the struggle, but of fighting this torrent, as I am. For self protection? For personal survival? No. To deepen my study of the situation, to study many of the books I've put off studying for months now, on Islam, Judaism, the history of Judaism and the Hebrew people, the history of Palestine, the history of Zionism, christian (Satanic, Demonic) Zionism.... If you sense a shift in my behavior... is it NOT a shift from Freeing Palestine... but toward trying to become better, stronger, more effective, more powerful... in my attempts.

To my Muslim sister: I find, with my limited knowledge, I find Muslim women to be infinitely more Godly, as a group, than western 'christian' women. And I credit Islam for that. But if the price is women being under the control of men, the interpretations, of men, the physical, legal, social power of men OVER women... that I can never accept, and I find much of that in the site I shared with you, a site that seems very credible to me. ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Women_in_Islam ; my friend agrees this is a credible site, but she strongly denounces wrong interpreters of Islam for the negative impacts on Muslim women, and NOT on the intent of Islam, with which I agree.) I DO pray for the time when I can read much or all of the Qur'an. My sense is that the Founders of most or all of the great religions were Godly people, Loving people... and that lesser people have quickly distorted and corrupted what they tried to sew among us. I suspect and hope that this is what I will find when and if I do read the Qur'an for myself." My sister's reply: "absolutely right James, thumbs up for you."

A respected, Muslim, FB friend: "Why do you always mention the un friending thingy???" My reply: "I mention the unfriending thingy as a duty as I make the choice to speak the Truth unvarnished as I do. I cannot do one without the other. I cannot build a fire in the fireplace if I do not make sure that the exits are clearly marked and clearly known." She further commented: "You have to understand how other cultures live their lives." My reply: "I 'want' to know how other cultures live their lives, but as a mortal, I'll never do more than scratch the surface on this. For the last hour I've been studying Islam. But, the Creator has no culture - not eastern or western, not north or south, not christian or muslim... and it is the Creator I am concerned with above all, and that portion of the Creator within us... that knows none of our foolish human boundaries." Finally she said: "If you see we must not be connected then unfriend me" My reply: "And if, to protect you, or out of some other consideration I judge I should unfriend you, I will not hesitate to do so."

***** (2012 article): Every year, somewhere between US$200 billion and $1 trillion are spent in “mandatory” alms and voluntary charity across the Muslim world, Islamic financial analysts estimate. At the low end of the estimate, this is 15 times more than global humanitarian aid contributions* in 2011.

It was a piece by Amy Goodman, the first ever interview, of the young, blond, pretty, lawyer who blew the whistle on a major NYC bank resulting in a $9b settlement. You should find, and watch, the segment. I don't recall her words, but when asked why she risked all (can you imagine taking on one of these consummately evil monsters? The Courage? A smart, educated, pretty... young woman in NYC???? I don't know if I can)... it was obvious from her words, humble, simple, self-effacing... THAT SHE IS OF, BY, AND FOR... A DIFFERENT WORLD, A DIFFERENT REALM, THE REALM OF GOODNESS, JUSTICE, LOVING. I am NOT saying that SHE sees this, but to me, for the first time every, I think, I could SEE that this is what is going on. It is the same for me, has been for many many years... trying to be born my entire life... but only watching this segment was it so 'clear' I could 'see' it.

nd. FB post to a Muslim sister for whom I have considerable respect, and from whose posts I profit: "I NEVER do anything to be 'disrespectful,' including making comments or posts that maybe directly conflict with the views of others. And I only bother commenting on the posts of the very few other people for whom I have considerable respect, such as you; or to whom I feel an obligation to comment. I believe we are at a point in history where our 'polite' shaving of the Truths as we see them, is doom. When I lose 'friends' as a consequence of speaking the Truth unvarnished as I understand it, at all costs (lost a 'friend' yesterday over this) I feel deep sadness and loss, but my respect and Love for the other person is never reduced. And I am relieved when those who find it too painful to travel near me, drop off, and so protect themselves."

No offense, but with so much suffering in the world, I don't want to know what gym you belong to, what restaurants you go to what kind of car you drive, what organizations you belong to, what your culture or background is, or most importantly what religion you have. Show us how humane you are, how loving, how embracing of all humanity, of all creation. Then I will know your true religion and may ask you how you regained your humanity. Only at that point might I be interested in hearing about your religion.

nd. How slowly I learn. Smh. Like all highly creative and productive people I am at least mildly manic depressive. When I undergo surgery as I did most recently two and a half weeks ago, I anticipate this rapid recovery. The opposite happens. My body demanded another 13 hours of sleep, so far, today. Smh. Depression is highly adaptive. It is nature's mechanism of slowing down the creature so that healing and renewed growth can happen. It is painful. It is distressing. It is frightening. But if it is not wallowed in, not disrespected, it does an amazing amount of wonderful work. I feel my body beginning to rebound and my psychology as well, with huge up-and-down swings.

86 Israeli Attacks on Islamic and Christian Holy Sites in 2014

It saddens me to see that other people’s wishes for the New Year are so different from what so many Palestinians would even consider possible. Why? Why can’t we dream of things other than having a year without another bloody war with Israel, having 24/7-electricity, and having the freedom to travel abroad? Why can’t Gazans just have a normal life? Why can’t we enjoy a festive beginning to the New Year as all other people around the world do? My heart aches, what I and other Gazans call wishes are what the rest of the world calls rights!

nd. You know, I've been having chest pains the last few days. I think it is nothing. Feels like what I had about 8 months ago, and a night in the hospital being tested said: 1. you are right to come in with these symptoms; 2. come in again if you have them again; 3. but right now, there is nothing bad going on with your heart. Well, if I don't wake up tomorrow, or sometime, I'm ok with that. Read my blog postings of the last day or so. Every day teaches me that what we've made of the world is more horrible than I realized yesterday. But if I do wake up tomorrow, as I expect to, I'll do the one thing that makes life bearable - devote every breath to the global neediest.

Rabbis for Human Rights: Israeli Channel 2 news last night exposed recordings of racist death threats made to RHR's Palestinian field worker, Zacharia Sada: "We will murder you and all your family," "your life is finished," "you are not a person," "you are inferior," "shut up when I'm talking to you" - these are just some of the gems said by the anonymous caller to Zacharia. It is very sad to see such young boys brainwashed and controlled by a theory of racial hatred that distorts and blasphemies Judaism. President and Senior Rabbi of Rabbis for Human Rights, Rabbi Arik Asherman also received similar threats against himself and his family. The threats came in the wake of assistance we gave a Palestinian farmer named Fawzi Ibrahim against extremists from the Esh Kodesh outpost who harass him when he tries to work his land. Unfortunately, the security forces rarely allow him to enter his lands and have admitted to restricting him because they lacked the security forces needed to protect him from the extremists of Esh Kodesh. Despite the threats, Rabbis for Human RIghts will continue to fight for human rights in light of Judaism without fear. To watch the full report (Hebrew) --> http://bit.ly/1xwyVI9

videoA ‪#‎Jewish‬ man and his girl friend gets jumped and beaten by some racist thugs and no body comes to their rescue except a ‪#‎Muslim‬. This is because ‪#‎Islam‬ calls us to stand against any form of injustice and to help those who need help.

The Quranic standards of justice transcend considerations of race, religion, color, and creed, as Muslims are commanded to be just to their friends and foes alike, and to be just at all levels, as the ‪#‎Quran‬ puts it:

“O you who believe! Stand out firmly for justice, as witnesses to Allah(God), even if it be against yourselves, your parents, and your relatives, or whether it is against the rich or the poor...” (Quran 4:135)

According to another Quranic passage:

“Let not the hatred of a people swerve you away from justice. Be just, for this is closest to righteousness…” (Quran 5:8)

With regards to relations with non-Muslims, the Quran further states:

“God does not forbid you from doing good and being just to those who have neither fought you over your faith nor evicted you from your homes...” (Quran 60:8)

Molotov cocktail thrown at Palestinian home

Ilan Baruch, former Ambassador of Israel to South Africa: Over the past two decades, Israel has dictated the terms of negotiations to both the Palestinians and the Americans: it must be done in bilateral channels, and aside from the Israelis and Palestinians, only the United States can take part in the process as a facilitator. This has resulted in distorted power dynamics in the negotiation room: the Palestinians have nothing to offer, while the Netanyahu government isn’t interested in the “two states for two peoples” solution based on 1967 borders. This situation must fundamentally change, and the upcoming elections provide a good opportunity to sharpen the message. Israeli-Palestinian relations do not solely belong to Israel. The world has a right and an obligation to intervene. The Americans must clarify that the lack of a breakthrough will lead to a complete deterioration in Israel’s international standing. Israel’s allies must force it to return to the table so that it can reconfigure its strategic interests. The Palestinians’ failure to garner a strong majority to support its resolution brings us to another reconfiguration. As Israel gears up for the elections, the United States and Europe must make clear the price Israeli will pay without a real peace process, as well as what it stands to gain from making peace.....

(as I've been saying....) nd. "When I have considered the enormity of the white man’s crimes against humanity—against women, against every living person of color, against the poor, against my mother and my father, against me … when I consider that at this very moment he wishes to take away what little freedom I have died to achieve, through denial of my right to vote … When I consider that he is, they are, a real and present threat to my life and the life of my daughter, my people—I think, in perfect harmony with my sisters of long ago—Let the Earth marinate in poisons. Let the bombs cover the ground like rain. For nothing short of total destruction will ever teach them anything. And it would be good, perhaps, to put an end to this species in any case, rather than let the white man continue to subjugate it, and continue to let their lust dominate, exploit and despoil not just our planet, but the rest of the universe, which is their clear and oft-stated intention—leaving their arrogance and litter not just on the moon, but on everything they can reach. If we have any true love for the stars, planets, the rest of Creation, we must do everything we can to keep the white man away from them. They who have appointed themselves our representatives to the rest of the universe; they who have never met any new creature without exploiting, abusing and destroying it; they who say we poor and colored and female and elderly blight neighborhoods, while they blight worlds. What they have done to the Old, they will do to the New. Under the white man every star would become a South Africa, every planet a Vietnam. Fatally irradiating ourselves may in fact be the only way to save others from what Earth has already become. And this is a consideration that I believe requires some serious though from every one of us. However, just as the sun shines on the godly and the ungodly alike, so does nuclear radiation. And with this knowledge it becomes increasingly difficult to embrace the thought of extinction purely for the assumed satisfaction of—from the grave—achieving revenge. Or even of accepting our demise as a planet as a simple and preventative medicine administered to the universe. Life is better than death, I believe, if only because it is less boring, and because it has fresh peaches in it. In any case, Earth is my home—though for centuries white people have tried to convince me I have no right to exist, except in the dirtiest, darkest corners of the globe.

The idea is that our central work in returning sanity to earth is the spirit that we embody and the spread. That that spirit must be one of loving. It is so long since I have had such a thought I do not know what I will find when I examined my behavior of recent months and its light. But I intend to do so. Of course I will examine the idea itself, as well. But it strikes me as extremely correct. The spirit of our age is frenetic, frantic, inebriated consumption to the point of extinction of all life.

I'm wondering if I have ever appreciated the benefits, and maybe the existential necessity, of a deliberately slower life.

Israel has all but made Palestine disappear. Yet Palestine appears to have found a new footing, its people animated by a renewed sense of purpose in spite of their suffering. “With nothing else to lose but themselves, Palestinians could yet rally behind the one thing which unite them all — Palestine. And this is what terrifies Israel,” said Osman, of the Strategic Foresight Group

Article. New York City police. In their view, their actions are above reproach. Any effort to prevent them from using unnecessary force or stem the killing of suspects is met with fierce defensiveness. The mock-outrage, the publicity stunts and backs being turned, do a disservice to cops around the country who want to do a good job and serve their community with honor. Pretending that cops, regardless of circumstance, should be placed on an alter and any scrutiny is “anti-cop” is pathetic and demeaning. Cops deserve better, Bill de Blasio deserves better, and New Yorkers especially deserve better.
