Gaza, the Momentum 1

The following post is a result of several conversations I had first hand with friends, facebook status messages I read, twitter messages I received. News articles I read. YouTube videos I watched…

From calls for for bloody Zionist Israel to stop its genocide in Gaza, to calls to Egypt, Jordan to cut their ties with Zionist Israel, to calls to Arab states to open the borders for Jihad in reflection upon news reports of children murdered, to innocent civilian life butchered for 22 consecutive days (till date), after years of blockade over Gaza.

From hundred of rallies walked, all sorts of flags risen, all sort of chants cried, all sort of boycott calls, of strikes, of prayers.

The momentum created by this new Zionist Israeli massacre should be carried not for days or months or years.

But for as long as it takes.

To save this momentum, action needs to happen. This same obsession over the past three weeks should result in grassroots actions. Forget our governments, forget the US, European officials. We need to bring our message to the masses around the globe.

Those were the words of many people around me.

What’s happening today in Gaza is the new deir yassin, the new sabra and shatila and the world needs to know the details of what has been happening. The gory details. Every story should be told. Those who died. Those who were injured and those who got the shock of their lives.

“I don’t want to forget what’s happening and how it made me feel a year from now…” – Ola

“We need to continue to donate to save more lives over there…” – Diala

“we need lawyers to start preparing a law suit against the murderous Israeli government.” – Ahmad

We need people to better brand this massacre, we need to launch hundreds of  websites to  put faces to all those who were killed & injured and collect each and every story, with any kind of media we can use.

Let’s have an action plan…

A song that says it all 0

My friend Duha was watching the news of what the Israeli killing machine is doing in Gaza and got reminded of this amazing song by Ultravox “All Fall Down” and she sent it to me.

Never heard it before but the music and lyrics says it all to me. Strong amazing visuals in the video too (watch till the end to see it).

Mad Sad World.

The day I was called a zionist 15

Today was many things. Today was fun, was lovely was dramatic and quiet.

But today I got called a Zionist. And for a Palestinian that’s more than an insult.

I got called that because I said that “I hate Hamas and Hezbulla as I hate Zionist Israelis” on my Facebook status.

And I do hate all three and hundreds of other violent parties/states whom believe that violence is the solution to every problem there is.

Hamas and its leaders decide to sacrifice life and precious Palestinian life every day. You can call it resistance. You can call them heroes. You can call them anything but read this.

I refused to be naive, I am disgusted by anyone using only George Bush’s idiotic thinking that “if you are not with us you are against us” which seems to be the case today with all the terror that is happening in Gaza.

I stand by all the civilians who didn’t choose to die for Hamas’s mistakes. Even if they elected them out of despair few years back.

I refuse the term “casualties of war” used by the killing Israeli/US machine. Everyone knows how condensed the population in Gaza are. And how ridiculous it is to say that they are targeting Hamas.They waged a war against the Palestinian Population.

Hamas knows this as well as the Israelis when they launch their rockets. They know how disproportionate the Israeli force will be. And still they decide to sacrifice everyone else for it. That is never justified to me either.

Israeli high-tech industry in the heart of silicon valley 0

I know, Not really a new discovery and not only in high-tech BUT its still a bugger, YES!

While I think Amman is the Silicon Valley of the Arab world, we don’t get that much attention from the real Silicon Valley. And my previous post on this proves it.

Yet our infamous neighbor,  gets soooo much attention as if they are actually there. This might sound like a very confusing and highly debatable subject, but can we at least the people in the high-tech industry in Jordan learn few lessons from the Israelis or is this yet another wall we create to alienate our selves from the fact that that although they are successful but they are the enemy and we just don’t want to learn anything from them?
