The Gaza Strip, A Zoo!!!

Gaza

article to be read here :(



A zoo. This is one of the ways that Palestinians describe the conditions under which nearly 1.5 million of them have

been living: in an area of some 360 square kilometers, closed in on

three sides by sophisticated barbed-wire fences, concrete walls and

military lookout towers, and to the west by Israeli navy ships…

The ‘Big Hug’ and the future of Jerusalem

The sting of all problems between Israeli and Palestinians lays in the Old City of Jerusalem. Her status has to be solved in such a way, that all parties fighting for control over her can agree upon.

On June 24, the ‘Big Hug’ will be hold in Jerusalem. Light workers from Israel, Palestine and from all over the world, ‘Lovers of Jerusalem’, will come together to bring warmth and energy to this city, embracing holding hands the Old City. If we bundle all our positive energies and bring these to Jerusalem, we can create peace to this exceptional place.

We are organizing the Big Hug to make the people aware –especially the Israeli and Palestinian inhabitants of Jerusalem- that there is a very shaped perspective for the city of Jerusalem as a city of peace: a new, undivided Jerusalem, as the capital of Palestine, Israel and at large.

Let go of the conflict concerning her command and dedicate the city to the Omnipresent. The Old City as a whole is His Temple. To give the walled Old City free to God, as a "Status Apart”, as an independent city, will be the most feasible way to come out the current impasse.

The Old City of Jerusalem must become an open city; a House of Prayer for all the Peoples. This perspective is written down in the Holy Books, this is the perspective we, as ‘Lovers of Jerusalem’ embrace as well as solution. But how many people does already notice this hopeful point of view?

What I saw in Jerusalem and also everywhere else where I meet Islamic and Jewish people is, that not so many persons really think about a future for Jerusalem. Most of the time, they stick with old ideas that the Old City of Jerusalem will always remain a part of Israel, or in opposite, that it will be absolutely a part of a new Palestinian state, as stolen land that has to be given back. With these visions, a future Jerusalem will be a divided city with an East Palestinian and West Israeli part, with barbed wire and checkpoints in between, like the situation of the city from 1948-1967. Or, coming closer to an agreement, people suggest -like proposed in the “Geneva Accord” in 2003- to make a complicated dividing of the Old City in a Israeli and Palestinian part. That will mean that the small alleys will be split by walls and barriers too. The idea that a future Jerusalem will become a divided city, is something that we have to prevent.

There are living about 250.000 Palestinian and 500.000 Israeli rather close together in one city. Do they want to make a separation of Jerusalem in parts or do they choose, deep in their hearts, for unity? So my best friends, it is our task to inform the whole city that there is an alternative for the Jerusalem of today.

All lovers of a united Jerusalem will come together to encircle and embrace the Old City of Jerusalem with love and devotion. We have to encourage all inhabitants of Jerusalem to join the coming Big Hug, with the idea of a New Jerusalem that might be realized with their support.

Dear Bart,

You are right that we need to contain the Europe WWII images and ideas. As you may know, the Zionist interpretation of this crisis is one of the deep drives in the Israeli fear. Paradoxically the Israeli Government motivation to "secure the Israelies" at all cost is the memory of Europe (and the sad this is that many Palestinians are the ones who pay the price)

We, the children of the region are trapped in a violent dance that is fueled by extremist world views in both sides.

The way out is not simple but it must relate to the future and not to the Past, since each national narrative trap the people in a US-against-THEM story that express itself in Israeli harshness in Gaza (and in general when dealing with Palestinians) and Palestinians QASAM activity that continues.


We should not be naive – The Israelis are trapped to continue to be harsh in Gaza while the Qasam and attacks against civilians and military continues. The Palestinians extremist is using this fact to maintain their power in Palestine. The same time Israeli extremist who do not recognize that we all here together sharing the resources and operates from Jewish-centric attitudes and seek to get more land and resources from the Arabs. They are fueling the Palestinians extremist and we and our children traped in their narrow world view that see only aggressing as way of be in the region.

So, we have 3 roles:
These are not conditioned action; this is our responsibility to the act of our own people and the future of the children of the Middle East.

1) Each in his national society to voice and act to enhance moderate the action AND reduce aggression of his fellow national members. The Israelis need to constrain their government and aggressive right wing the Palestinians constrains their extremists.

2) Each will strive to a post nationalistic Middle East, were it will not matter which side of the border line one born and his parents history will not enhance/reduce his/her natural rights.

3) Free one self from the bitter, self victimizing claiming historic narratives justifies killing of any person.

With love,
Neri.
