Stephanie Chase's Blog (75)


After reading this article, it made me feel worthless; a punch in the face to all people that are working towards peace and reconciliation, making it sounds as if it is/was a joke!

I found this article to be offensive, making it sound like dialogue is counter productive. I personally feel that dialogue will bring people together (maybe not necessarilly their governments), and dispell the stereotypes, racism, hate that they had been taught, and come to see the other side as human… Continue

Investing in Peace

Currently there as been a lot of BDSM (Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions Movement) towards Israel, along with an academic and cultural boycott. I don't mind if people-- schools, institutions, goverments, companies, etc. are divesting from companies that are invested in the violence, oppression and or occupation (on BOTH sides-- since I feel that both sides are responsible in one way or another for the violence, and current state of affairs within Israel and Palestine, but also with Israel and… Continue

Hamas rocket attacks 'war crimes'-- Excellent, balanced article from the BBC! :)

I was so happy to find this article.

Finally, human rights groups are admitting that Hamas should be responsible for the war crimes and damages that they have done to Israelies in Southern Israel.

I think that people need to realize that both sides are responsible for the violence-- it's not a one man's act, and both the Israeli government and Hamas should be held responsible for the autrocities that they have done.

The article admits a lot of things that I have been… Continue

Israelies and Palestinians Playing Soccer?

I happened to encounter this video on a blog.

This video could be construed as degrading and demoralizing, but I decided to see the good in this video.

Despite the wall, they could all play a good game of soccer.

But I still did not like how they did not show the Palestinians, making it sound as if they were not human.

And that really dissapointed… Continue

Lieberman vows to quit if charged

If find this article to be very interesting.

First, What kind of fraud was Avigdor Lieberman accused of within the Israeli government ?

I am happy that he may have to resign, since I did not like his policy towards peace, nor his racist attitudes (some of them sounded VERY scary! Especially the one where he said that "Minorities everywhere are the problem. I find that totally ironic that he would say that, since he, as a Jew was a minority, living under opprssive… Continue

Soccer for Peace-- Sunday, June 27th-- Anyone planning on going?!

Hey everyone!

I am (hopefully) gonna go to NYC at the end of this month, + early July.

Anyways, I noticed for the mepeace calendar that there is a Soccer for Peace event in NY (near Manhattan).

I want to go, but it costs, $1000 for a team, or $125 per individual participant. Now I don't have that kind of money, being a poor college student who is jobless, living within a crap economy. Is there a way that I could… Continue

I received an e-mail from a friend about boycotting Israeli Couscous sold at Trader Joe's

Today I reiceived an e-mail from a friend about boycotting Israeli Couscous sold at Trader Joes (we are both on the same list serve at my former college, Students for Justice in Palestine).

For those that are not from the United States, Trader Joe's is a health food store that sells organic and fair trade food from around the world, giving Americans more of a variety than one would find at a mainstream grocery store.

The article was a little ambiguous to me-- Boycott/de-shelve the… Continue

I am planning to make regional mepeace groups here on mepeace! :)

Hi everyone!

So I wanted to let everyone know that I am going to create mepeace regional groups, as a way to for other mepeace members to meet up with people that live nearby them.

After living in Massachusetts, and being a little dismayed that all of the mepeace events (when Eyal came to the US) in the US where in NYC or Washington DC, it was a little bit hard to go to those, do to it being too far away for me; money; time; travel; conflictions with work/school ,etc.

So I am… Continue

Stand with Obama; Stand With Israel

Hey everyone!

I am a member and supporter of J-Street, which is the new Pro-Israel lobby, which asks for peace and justice in Israel, Palestine and a just solution to the conflict; to improve US relations with Iran, rather than fighting or putting sanctions on Iran and getting to build connections and diplomatic relations between Israel and her neighbors, which is crucial for Middle East Peace.

Below is a petition against the agressive right-wingers, who are trying to persuade… Continue

global economic crisis and a growing anti-Israel boycott of locally made

products following Operation Cast Lead, the Israel Manufacturers Association

economic crisis, 21 percent of local exporters report… Continue

On Anti-Semitism, Boycotts, and the Case of Hermann Dierkes: An Open Letter from Jewish Peace Activists

Like many of these other Jewish scholars, activists, students, historians, writers, journalists, etc., I too strongly condemn Israel for what has done in the occupied terrirtories, and most recently, Gaza, and I feel that products that support Israel's violence, occupation and oppression in these areas from the occupied territories and Gaza should be boycotted.

With that stand, I am against Israel as a whole, since not everything Israel has done and produced has been bad. I think that we… Continue

Sindyanna of Galilee

Whose is "real" here on mepeace? Who has integrity and who does not?

I am posting this since after seeing a few members that claim to be Arab, but speak in a very anti- Arab tone, may not be who they claim to be on this site.

While I understand that this is a website and we are on the internet, and people can disguise themselves, I am a little dishearted to see people want to trick other members into who they are with propoganda. (I don't want to say names, to respect the privacy of these people).

Just looking at a few other blogs made me feel like I… Continue

Please support Hampshire College at your University

I go to school at Hampshire College, out in Amherst, MA.

Hampshire is the first college in the US to divest from companies that profit from the Israeli occupation.

Below is a petition from Jewish Voice for Peace to Understand what is going on, and to help support the students.



As a university student, educator, alumnus, or staff member, you must have heard the news last week that Hampshire College became the first college in… Continue
