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).

Review of "The Iron Wall" 0

I went to Daret Al Fonoon yesterday to watch “The Iron Wall” a documentary about the aprathied wall Israel has been building in Palestine since 2002, a project architected by Ariel Sharon.

The documentary was excellently done, I found the images and stories told heart breaking but a story well told and a message delivered by both sides, mostly by Israelis against the idea of settlement and of course the wall.

The most hearbreaking story told was of a palestinan farmer, where settlers accompanied by soldiers of the IDF were barbarically cutting his olive tries one by one while he was screaming out “my olives”. I get a bad feeling in my stomach whenever i remember that scene that shows utter violence of an occupying power trying it best to break the hearts of its vitims.

I encourage you to watch and promote this documentary http://www.theironwall.ps/ directed by Mohammed Alatar and produced by Palestinian Agriculture Relief Committees and Palestinians for Peace and Democracy.

Are we that mute? 1

The following is something I wrote 5 years ago, around the Israeli invasion of the West Bank in 2002. Reflecting on the disaster in GAZA I just had to say the words to myself again…

MUTE

They got you “Mute”,

the “how” and the “why” are loads of theories

you can’t choose from,

but you sense it mute along with the rest of you.

 

Saddened by your state, you bleed silently from within,

your wounds are growing and you sense more of the pain, the pain of despair.


You cling to hope yet when you give it another thought you know that hope is not the next thing in line.

Hope is there for you to survive and who says you can’t?

The expectations of a better tomorrow become dreams with no vision;

since you think you have no control…then again you are on mute.

Proud of others down in the line of fire,

is all that you think you can do who does this help? Only you.

 

You do care, you care so much to the degree of despair

But what more do you need to see, to happen

for you to scream, to rebel to finally act and be LOUD?

 

Are you that “Mute”?
