Total U.S. aid to Israel is approximately one-third of the American foreign-aid budget, even though Israel comprises just .001% of the world’s population and already has one of the world’s higher per capita incomes.

(SAN FRANCISCO)  A fantasy persists of a Israeli-Palestine peace agreement leading to an independent Palestine state in the land Israel has occupied since the 1967 Mideast War.  It must be clear by now to anyone paying attention that Israel has no intention of engaging in meaningful peace negotiations that would result in an independent Palestinian state.  Rather, Israel is slowly squeezing the Palestinians where the ultimate goal is to take over the entire country by  erecting a wall or fence, which cuts deep into Palestinian territory, joining large Jewish settlement blocks to Israel, further confining the Palestinians to isolated enclaves.

(BETHLEHEM)  Palestine Museum of Natural History Progress in the last week:

– You are invited today (Wednesday July 22) at 2 PM for a talk by Hodgkin the author of “A History of Mathematics From Mesopotamia to Modernity” and retired math professor from King’s College in London. His lecture is titled “Mathematics and justice: what is mathematics doing to us, and what could it do for us?” Earlier, we took a trip with Prof. Hodgkin to Artas because he is the grandchild of Mrs. Crowford (she and Louise Baldensperger were partners in the 1920s/1930s in studying Palestinian plants and folklore in that town)

Human Rights: thinking globally, acting locally

israel-signOne thing about empires that people have to know: they do not last. They get the hubris to think they can last and that they can manage affairs of other people in perpetuity but this is an illusion.

(BETHLEHEM)  The first two paragraphs below are commentary/”thinking globally” followed by suggestions on “acting locally”. So you can skip the next two paragraphs if you like and go directly to actions.

A home denied

Palestine_refugees“The Zionists wanted Palestine, all of Palestine, preferably with no Palestinians in it.” – Jewish historian, Ilan Pappé, from his book, The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine

(LONDON)  They came uninvited. The Zionist zealots arrived on our shores with the Bible in one hand and a machine gun in the other. They declared, “this is our land, promised to us by our God and you, the Palestinians, have no place in it.”

The inevitable consequence of this pre-meditated act of land theft, genocide and ethnic cleansing was the creation of one of the biggest and oldest refugee problems the world has ever known. One out of every three refugees in the world is a Palestinian.  With no place to call home and denied every possible human and civil right the Palestinian refugees and their descendents have been languishing in refugee camps ever since in Jordan, Syria, Lebanon and also the West Bank and Gaza.
