"Notice he faults the dialogue process for the fact that many Palestinians failed to show up or maintain ties with Israelis, when he's arguing that they *shouldn't* be involved!"

Machsom Watch

Our, quiet but assertive, presence at checkpoints is a direct challenge to the dominant militaristic discourse that prevails in Israeli society. It demands accountability on the part of the security forces towards the civilian estate.

Justice is just ice.

Posted on August 23, 2009 at 7:34am 3 Comments

When we realize our collective concept of justice is without a soul, heartless and cold, we will understand why peace is necessary and how to achieve it. The only difficulty is that realization is rarely achieved collectively, and the awakened individual is left without support, accused of undermining justice by calling for mercy. Perhaps there is a critical mass factor involved.



The right to defend oneself is innate and instinctual, and not evil. But the right to punish after the… Continue

The Symbol of Peace

The symbol of peace falls in the land of peace
Will we give them the chance to bring down the symbol of peace in the land of peace?
Many people know this is a plot of land full of olive trees.
And many Israeli and Palestinian families make a living from these trees
Especially that so many Palestinian families do not have another source of living,
except these olive trees

Days before the start of the harvest, especially in the West Bank,
What happened was expected, the start was of some settlers groups fighting Palestinian families
and preventing them to enter to the olive harvest,
Then the settlers started shooting the Palestinians, and set fire in the trees
Finally, with the help of European, American, Israeli, and other people from all over the world,
Some Palestinian families succeeded to collect their olives.

So, I am the address to thank all those who helped these families and brought them happiness,
And say to the settlers: We will not let you bring down the symbol of peace
For the olive trees are the symbol of peace in the land of peace

סמל השלום
נופל סמל השלום בארץ השלום
האם לתת להם הזדמנות להפיל סמל השלום בארץ השלום?
הרבה אנשים יודעים שזה מגרש מלא עצי זית.
ומשפחות רבות של ישראלים ופלסטינים מתפרנסים מהעצים האלה.
במיוחד לכל כך הרבה משפחות פלסטיניות אין מקור הכנסה ,
רק עצי הזית האלה.
ימים לפני תחילת המסיק ובמיוחד בגדה המערבית.
מה שקרה היה צפוי, בהתחלה כמה קבוצות של יהודים נלחמו
במשפחות הפלסטיניות כדי למנוע מהם להיכנס אל מסיק הזיתים
אז פתחו המתנחלים באש על הפלסטינים ושרפו עצים שלהם.
בעזרה של אנשים מן האחוד האירופי, אמריקה, ישראלים ומכל ארצות העולם, הצליחו בסוף כמה משפחות פלסטיניות לאסוף את הזיתים שלהם................
לפיכך . אני הכתובת של תודה רבה לכל מי שעזר למשפחות הללו והביא שמחה ללבם....
ואמרו למתנחלים לא ניתן לכם להוריד את סמל השלום
כי עצי הזית הם סמל השלום בארץ השלום

A True Story By Faisal Al-Hatib
I am a Palestinian Arab from Hizmeh, a village between Jerusalem and Ramallah. When I was 15 years old I fought against the Israeli Occupation in search of freedom. At that time I thought every Jewish person, whether soldier or citizen, man or woman, young or old, should be killed. I rejected the right for any Jew to live and every Jew was a target. I was just a kid, believe me, and I didn’t understand anything about politics or the Arab-Israeli conflict. I was arrested and sat in jail for 12 years. This was during the first intifada from 1987. At that time nobody talked about peace but only of violence. I matured during my time in jail. I started studying and reading books on politics, literature, poetry, and about the Madrid Conference.

It gave me hope to live in peace and dignity. I learned that violence only breeds violence and that peace is the only solution for the two nations, the only way for both to have a respectful and beautiful future. We live on the same land. We are neighbors. We drink the same water and both pray to a monotheistic God. We must live in peace on the basis of religion for God and land for everyone.
