Gaza was bombarded with 273 airstrikes yesterday (8th July). That’s an average of 11 an hour. Gaza is about 25 miles long and 4 miles wide, with a population of 1.7 million crammed into that tiny space. It is under Israeli occupation and Israeli siege. Hospitals estimate they will run out of resources to treat the wounded in about two days. Electricity is intermittent. Gaza has no army, air force or navy. Israel is the fourth largest military power in the world. Resistance to occupation is allowed under international law. Israel’s occupation, siege and collective punishment of Gaza is not.

Murder as spectator sport

Israelis bring chairs to hilltop in Sderot overlooking Gaza. Clapping when blasts are heard. (photo tweeted by @allansorensen72)

Apartheid. Racism. Fascism. Zionism. Colonialism. Imperialism. 
From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free.





This is the sort of thing you expect to be fictional hyperbole. There’s no way any populace in the world could be this relentlessly calous and evil. But here it is, in full view for everybody: the racism of Israel and its citizens.

How beautiful is this? Wow!

Me gústa!

I, Too By: Langston Hughes

I, too, sing America.

I am the darker brother.
They send me to eat in the kitchen
When company comes,…
But I laugh,
And eat well,
And grow strong.

Tomorrow,
I’ll be at the table
When company comes.
Nobody’ll dare
Say to me,
“Eat in the kitchen,”
Then.

Besides,
They’ll see how beautiful I am
And be ashamed—

I, too, am America

My dad just called from Abu Dhabi, and he and I just talked for a half hour about MENA politics, and after all that I feel so refreshed.

It’s as if all the wasted fakery of the past couple weeks interaction with my coworkers has disappeared. It’s a shame that for most people the conversations I want to have are considered energy draining, whereas the ones they want to have (that I pretend to participate in) make me hate myself.  Instead of pretending to care about how attractive person X is, or nodding along to relationship biz that I barely relate to, or talking about their night of getting wasted, I wish I could just talk to everyone  the way I do with my Aabbo about politics, religion, and history.

That would be a dream.

So I just added chilli powder, curry, cumin, and coreander to Ramen, and man is this now some bomb-ass food. I done good.
