Native Sons: Palestinians In Exile from Tom Hayes on Vimeo.
Martin Sheen narrates this examination of the lives of three Palestinian families who fled their homes in 1948 and have lived as refugees in Lebanon ever since. Originally released in 1985, Native Sons probes the roots of the Palestine/Israel conflict through lives of individual people. Utilizing archive footage dating from as early as 1935, the film provides an accessible introduction to "the Middle East Conflict."

Looks like there never will come a time when 'activists' on the left will put their bodies where their mouths, and typing fingers, are. Nero fiddled.... (detail)

Looks like there never will come a time when 'activists' on the left will put their bodies where their mouths, and typing fingers, are.  Nero fiddled while Rome burned. Whine, whine, whine, blame, blame, blame, complain, complain, complain, criticize, criticize, criticize, circle-jerk, circle-jerk, circle-jerk.... The 'activists' on the left typed while Palestine, Democracy, Earth's Habitability.... burned.  God damn them all.  "The world will not be destroyed by the evil people, but by the good people who do not stop them."  Einstein. IN FACT.

***** Day 12: Fuzzy-headed, weak, but functioning.... What we need is the tip of the spear piling up their dead bodies to start a fire, as I am with this Death Fast.

SPDF Day 12:  Fuzzy-headed, weak, eyesight failing, but functioning.  I've ordered a hand truck to pull my backpacks. Should arrive Mon nite.  No more strength for carrying that 40-50 pounds of stuff the 16 to 35 round trip blocks to my demonstration sites.  Onsite again yesterday at NPR 6:50am until 5:30pm with the posters.  Tomorrow I expect to be at the White House, not that it is strategic to my work... what we need now is not general informing... what we need is the tip of the spear piling up their dead bodies to start a fire, as I am with this Death Fast.  What we have now is not a fire, ever.  Just more and more wood being gathered, drying in the sun, cuz that's easy, safe, fun, and lucrative to do, and makes us feel productive without doing shit.  With nothing to ignite it, well, right now, the only thing the f'ing left is doing is killing time, that is, killing Palestinians, with their feel-good bull-shit a-historical, a-theoretical masturbating each other.  Eleanor Roosevelt said it well: "She who would give light, must endure burning."  But I'll go to the White House tomorrow anyway, 1. Because the weather is supposed to be non-rain, and it is better to work online there rather than hidden away in a room, and 2. I'll probably have some few folks come up to talk, attack, harass, support, thank... and I'd like to take a pulse of what is going on with them.  Mon - Thu, weather permitting, I'll be on my major site, Capitol Hill, to put my dying body in the face of the Congressscum where they slither to and fro. I"m determined to drag it out for them for another month, at least.  And thereby to also keep my dying body in front of the do-nothing, pay no price, party party party left, tho both groups are near perfect in their capacity for denial and dismissal.  I'll be late Mon a.m. cuz I'll be seeing my doc, hoping she will agree to monitor my blood-work periodically. I want to keep my brain functioning as long as my body holds out.  I need the time to finish my blog, a small book on the Strategy to Stop Palestines Death Fast, and at the end, seeing as I have zero support organization, I'll need some wits about me to finish this thing as effectively as possible... negotiating police, eviction from the homeless shelter once they find out what I'm doing, finding a place on the street again... disappearing at the very end, or negiating forced hospitalization, release, back on the hill, forced hospitalization, back on the hill... institutionalization and or prison.......

IF THE CITIZENS CONTINUE TO NOT NOT NOT DO THEIR JOB AS CITIZENS THE DECENDENTS OF THE PLANTATION OWNERS... WILL CONTINUE TO DESTROY THE GOV SO THEY CAN GET US ALL BACK ON THE PLANTATION.  HOW CAN YOU BE SO STUPID AS TO NOT SEE THIS????"

Norman Finkelstein - Despite being a Jewish son of two Holocaust survivors, he posed the question of whether the world is actually facing a “new anti-Semitism” in 2015. Finkelstein said instead it may be the fourth ploy by Jews since the 1980s to “deflect global condemnation of Israel.”

***** vlog. Priorities: Updating the blog, Compiling a Death Fast Book, Showing the way with my life of how to Free Palestine… how to pay the price for them....

(NOTE: There are two long pauses at the beginning of the video as I deal with technical issues of recording and conducting text to speech at the same time.  And, obviously, there are major compromises to the the video in that I am punctuating, and speaking distinctly, for the transcription.  I need to make every second count.  We should all be making every second count.  These are the final days of possibility and NO ONE is standing up.  NO ONE.)

SPDF Day 9.  Priorities: I do not know how much time I have left.  Had I thought of an answer about five days ago I'd have thought just two or three weeks.  I've never been so sick on any sort of a fast.  Not nearly.  But after being re-hydrated at the ER, and after some useful conversation there, as to diet, 100 calories or so per day to treat my extreme fatigue so that I can mobile, as I demand to be...  my guess now is that this being day nine I have another month or two before going terminal.  For this I am grateful. A longer show, a longer dramatization of the Holocaust, is a good thing, on Capitol Hill, Online, here in front of NPR (Nauseating Pablum Radio where I am this week till 7pm or so each night), and at the Washington Post and White House when congress is out of town and weekends. 

But I don't know how long I've got.  And for now I'm guessing that the nature of my online activities will change substantially. 

As I noted yesterday in a crucial Blog Post (http://jesusgodgoodetcnjay.blogspot.com/2015/03/pjc-of-bibi-and-barack-jvp-code-pink.html), Palestine was dying, is dying, for a lack of activists of REMOTELY the caliber, soul, commitment, embrace of the truth, determination to pay the price... that we last saw back in the sixties.  So my high priority is to do some further work on my blog (which is easily gotten to by googling 'start loving,' or using the easy to remember relay site http://start-loving.blogspot.com), to devote my efforts to updating that blog, that message in a bottle I am leaving to the future, so that if after I'm gone someone's heart is awakened, someone's conscience is awakened, the curiosity of some serious soul is awakened, that I can serve them as best as possible based on my adulthood-long practice of high stakes leadership, high-stakes change, nonviolent study, nonviolent leadership, nonviolent (unviolent) practice.

Much of my time has continued to be devoted to studying the news on the extermination of Palestine and posting important stories.  I'll continue the study, but I suspect I'll Post far fewer of the stories to conserve time and to avoid watering down the more strategic posts. 

And the news doesn't change.  It's the same moment by moment, hour by hour savagery, depravity, NAZI-esq, violation of all that is human and decent, moral degeneracy exceeded only by that of we Americans, we citizens, that sit by while our tax dollars, our weaponry, our power to obstruct in the United Nations, are used to torture, torment, terrorize, and terminate this part of the family.

SPDF Day 9: Favorite Poem of JFK before he died.

SPDF (Stop Palestines Death Fast) Day 9: I'm told this was a favorite poem of JFK, read to him by his daughter not long before his extermination, "I have a rendezvous with Death
At some disputed barricade,
When Spring comes back with rustling shade
And apple-blossoms fill the air—
I have a rendezvous with Death
When Spring brings back blue days and fair.

It may be he shall take my hand
And lead me into his dark land
And close my eyes and quench my breath—
It may be I shall pass him still.
I have a rendezvous with Death
On some scarred slope of battered hill,
When Spring comes round again this year
And the first meadow-flowers appear.

God knows ‘twere better to be deep
Pillowed in silk and scented down,
Where love throbs out in blissful sleep,
Pulse nigh to pulse, and breath to breath,
Where hushed awakenings are dear...
But I’ve a rendezvous with Death
At midnight in some flaming town,
When Spring trips north again this year,
And I to my pledged word am true,
I shall not fail that rendezvous."

 This meme I just created is mean and cruel. It is mean and cruel if facing the truth, the facts, in time to do something about it, regardless of how uncomfortable is, is mean and cruel. Today's liberals in, the United States at least, ever since the late sixties, never never never never never do this. They are my brothers and sisters. I love them. they have the right, legally at least, to choose what they are going to do. It is not my business to try and control what they do. it is my business to provide input, regardless of how unpleasant it may be , or a personal price, the total isolation, that it has cost me these last 6, 7, 8 years. Total exile . In my view I can think of nothing more mean and cruel than for the free Palestine movement to continue in the disgusting delusional thinking that currently and up until now embraces it. It too refuses to face the facts. It refuses to ask the question, regardless of how impossible, regardless of what would be the personal cost to me, what would it take to stop this genocide? It truly, savagely, mercilessly refuses to ask that question. If one does asked that question in light of all proven nonviolent theory, and the history of all proven nonviolent movements, then something like the meme above emerges. In a wonderful quote from Martin Luther King jr., he said, the three who walked past the victim lying by the dangerous road asked the question, if I stop, what will happen to me? The Good Samaritan ask a different question. If I do not stop, what will happen to him? If you find this post offensive, maybe you can be a little forgetting. I am on day 8 of the Stop Palestines Death Fast.

***** Palestine needs me (1000’s of us) to pay the ultimate price.

SPDF Day 7: Palestine needs me to pay the ultimate price.  Each Palestinian child needs me to pay the ultimate price, so that maybe one less of them over the next 20 years or so has to.  1000's of us need to do the same, now, to heap up such a price, too pay such a price, that enough people on the sidelines can't bear the suffering, stand up, devote their lives to stopping this. This is the only hope. It is the only way.  There has never been another way.  No, it won't happen.  But I'll do my part of showing the way.  That's all I can do.

***** pic. Day 7: Why in front of NPR, National Pablum Radio? Without their incessant lies Israel / US couldn’t do the murdering.

SPDF Day 7:   Why in front of national pablum radio?  Last week in a survey their audience was rated as the most informed.  If you spend hours as I have going through their so called reporting on Palestine and Israel you will find that their audience is profoundly misinformed.  Invariably they refer to it as a conflict , as a war, as opposed to the brutal colonial occupation, ethnic cleansing , slow motion genocide , savage holocaust that it is.  The audience of NPR is the nations intellectual elites.  Thomas Jefferson believed that more important than government was the informing of the citizenry .  This most elite information organization is systematically misinforming, propagandizing, lying, spouting the Israeli lies.  I am here on the remotest of possibilities that between now, my death from this fast in the next month or so, weeks and months or years later someone at NPR that witnessed this death fast might have a twinge of conscience and become the journalist they probably dreamed of being when they started and stop lying and tell the truth whether it causes the loss of their job as it near certainly will, or not.  I no longer have a body that is mobile on zero calories , sadly.  But with the help of the emergency room visits yesterday I realize that I may have a body that can be mobile on a bottle of Gatorade every day , about 150 calories .  I do not hunger strike from a cot like Gandhi did I need to be much more productive than that.  I need to be mobile as I am now .  Coming here is a 16 block roundtrip lugging all my gear.  Surely I burn more than that 150 calories in the walk.  This week there should be one more week day without rain and it is my hope I'll have the strength to be in front of the Washington Post that day.  If I have the strength I hope to have,  Sunday is forecast to be rain free and I plan to be on the north side of the White House.  The current forecast for next week is decent weather and Congress is scheduled back in session starting Monday through Thursday and I plan to be on the hill.

Iranian Jews to Israel: Our National Idenitity is Not for Sale

Iranian Jews to Israel: Our National Identity is Not for Sale



***** · John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt · The Israel Lobby...... "For the past several decades, and especially since the Six-Day War in 1967, the centrepiece of US Middle Eastern policy has been its relationship with Israel. The combination of unwavering support for Israel and the related effort to spread ‘democracy’ throughout the region has inflamed Arab and Islamic opinion and jeopardised not only US security but that of much of the rest of the world. This situation has no equal in American political history. Why has the US been willing to set aside its own security and that of many of its allies in order to advance the interests of another state? One might assume that the bond between the two countries was based on shared strategic interests or compelling moral imperatives, but neither explanation can account for the remarkable level of material and diplomatic support that the US provides. Instead, the thrust of US policy in the region derives almost entirely from domestic politics, and especially the activities of the ‘Israel Lobby’. Other special-interest groups have managed to skew foreign policy, but no lobby has managed to divert it as far from what the national interest would suggest, while simultaneously convincing Americans that US interests and those of the other country – in this case, Israel – are essentially identical."

region has inflamed Arab and Islamic opinion and jeopardised not only US
security but that of much of the rest of the world. This situation has
no equal in American political history. Why has the US been willing to
set aside its own security and that of many of its allies in order to
advance the interests of another state? One might assume that the bond
between the two countries was based on shared strategic interests or
compelling moral imperatives, but neither explanation can account for
the remarkable level of material and diplomatic support that the US
provides.



Instead, the thrust of US policy in the region derives almost
entirely from domestic politics, and especially the activities of the
‘Israel Lobby’. Other special-interest groups have managed to skew
foreign policy, but no lobby has managed to divert it as far from what
the national interest would suggest, while simultaneously convincing
Americans that US interests and those of the other country – in this
case, Israel – are essentially identical."

SPDF Day 6: I think a trip to the ER may be necessary.

SPDF Day 6: I think a trip to the ER may be necessary. This is the third day I'm too sick to get out of bed. This is a first. I've done a dozen or so severe hunger strikes and never anything like this sickness. Three hours ago I all but passes out with nausia when in the bathroom. Now I am sitting up and feeling a bit better. Maybe my body is stabilizing. We'll see. I think my blood chem must be all messed up and maybe the ER could stabilize that. I need to hang around at least until Congress gets back next Mon.

PS: That's odd, it seems I never posted of the ER visit.  Blood work was fine, they judged me dehydrated and gave me two liters of saline. Maybe made me feel a little better. They wanted to give me a liter of glucose but to their credit they respected my wishes on the Death Fast.
