World Festival of Resistances and Rebellions

Journal Entry: Sat May 23, 2015, 5:32 PM

★ EZLN and CNI ★

invited everyone to the

read full invitation:

English - Spanish - Deutsch - Italian

To the brothers and sisters of the National and International Sixth
and the National Indigenous Congress “David Ruíz Garcia”
In the gathering of our peoples in the Exchange between Zapatista Peoples
we shared with each other our pain as well as our words
and experiences of struggle, rebellion, and resistance.
Together we know that within our rebellions is our “NO”
to the politics of destruction that capitalism carries out across the world.
And we know that within our resistances are the seeds of the world that we want.
These rebellions and resistances are not just those of the indigenous peoples of Mexico.
They are also found in the footsteps of the originary peoples
across the continent and in all corners of the earth where individuals,
groups, collectives, and organizations not only say “NO” to destruction,
but go about constructing something new.
In this exchange, which we know has been possible largely due
to the support of brothers and sisters of the National and International Sixth,
we confirm that our mother earth, giver of all life on the planet,
is in danger, and thus all of humanity is also.
We see that it is neoliberal capitalism that has caused all of this pain,
destruction, and death, and which has dispossessed,
exploited, disrespected, and repressed us.
In defense of mother earth and in the struggle
for humanity and against neoliberalism, no struggle is small.
Brothers and sisters of the National and International Sixth,
we know that this savage and deathly capitalism is not invincible.
We have learned this from the Zapatista experience
and from the rebellions and resistances
that bloom all over the planet whose pain is our pain,
whose struggles are our struggles, and who dreams are our dreams.
So we want to share with you the words, experiences, paths,
and collective decision that a world where many worlds fit is possible.
As we are concretizing the steps toward this dream,
it is necessary to share with each other what we are thinking,
to listen to each other in order to understand our struggles
and our rebellions and learn from our forms of resistance

Pavel Pukhov P183 - R.I.P.

Journal Entry: Fri Apr 5, 2013, 3:26 AM


★ You are and will be forever a STAR ★



"Expressing your opinion is a form of civil defense"



"My mission was to encourage the opposition movement,
to let people know they are not alone in this
"




His 'code name' could be mistaken for the name of a rifle: P183.
The covert graffiti artist, often referred to as "the Russian Banksy", has died.



Pavel won recognition as the creator of provocative art works scattered across Moscow



The details and conditions of the "Russian Banksy's" death will not be released,
the production company Pavel worked for, said in the statement.



Preliminary theories, however, rapidly spread online
with people saying that the graffiti artist hanged himself.
At the same time the media,
referring to street art group "310"
said he was poisoned.



Not much known about the artist who preferred not to disclose
his name and signed his works like P183,
besides his name – Pavel Pukhov - and age 29.



P183 went international after several British,
American and French dailies published photographs of his works,
saying his 'guerilla' tactics of painting street murals
were similar to those used by iconic British nonconformist Banksy.



However, P183 didn't take the comparison as a compliment,
noting he had been shaping his signature style for the past 14 years.



The mysterious figure, allegedly in his late 20s,
preferred to cover his tracks and hide his face
with a black balaclava to remain anonymous.



A can of spray paint never failed him,
helping the up-and-coming artist share his ideas
with those who kept their eyes wide open.


Put simply, I want to teach people in this country
to tell lies from the truth and to tell bad from good
"


he said in an interview with Russia Today television,
wearing a black ski mask that covered most of his face.



"This is what our people still cannot do"



Despite all that, he said he did not consider himself a political artist
and hated politics just as much as he hated advertising.



"With my work, I want to communicate certain ideas to people."



The artist has claimed to have had many professions since graduating from a university,
working as a computer expert, photographer, cameraman,
film director and even child psychiatrist.



He scoffed at comparisons to Banksy, saying they belittled his own style.



"Like poets who put their thoughts and reflections onto paper, I want mine to be heard."



"What is culture? Culture - a system of prohibitions"



"If I die tomorrow, I can at least feel that I have left something real behind."

Bobby Sands Remembered
(May 4, 2012)

On this the 31st anniversary of the death on hunger strike of Bobby Sands,
his friend and comrade, former IRA prisoner Colm Scullion from South Derry,
recalls first meeting Bobby while on remand in Crumlin Road Jail.
Colm had been injured in a premature explosion at the time of his arrest in October 1976
along with his fellow comrade Tom McElwee,
the ninth republican to die on the hunger strike, on 8th August 1981.



Colm was later sentenced, and in the H-Blocks met up with Bobby again and there in H-3,
during some of the darkest days of the protest, they shared a cell.
Here, the quiet South Derry republican speaks about Bobby Sands' humour,
his humanity and his concern for especially the younger prisoners
as the blanket men entered their fifth year of beatings on the protest for political status.

The Rhythm of Time
(words by Bobby Sands)

There's an inner thing in every man,
Do you know this thing my friend?

It has withstood the blows of a million years,
And will do so to the end.

It was born when time did not exist,
And it grew up out of life,
It cut down evil's strangling vines,
Like a slashing searing knife.

It lit fires when fires were not,
And burnt the mind of man,
Tempering leadened hearts to steel,

From the time that time began.

It wept by the waters of Babylon,
And when all men were a loss,
It screeched in writhing agony,
And it hung bleeding from the Cross.

It died in Rome by lion and sword,
And in defiant cruel array,
When the deathly word was 'Spartacus'
Along the Appian Way.

It marched with Wat the Tyler's poor,
And frightened lord and king,
And it was emblazoned in their deathly stare,
As e'er a living thing.

It smiled in holy innocence,
Before conquistadors of old,
So meek and tame and unaware,
Of the deathly power of gold.

It burst forth through pitiful Paris streets,

And stormed the old Bastille,
And marched upon the serpent's head,
And crushed it 'neath its heel.

It died in blood on Buffalo Plains,
And starved by moons of rain,
Its heart was buried in Wounded Knee,
But it will come to rise again.

It screamed aloud by Kerry lakes,
As it was knelt upon the ground,

And it died in great defiance,
As they coldly shot it down.

It is found in every light of hope,
It knows no bounds nor space
It has risen in red and black and white,
It is there in every race.

It lies in the hearts of heroes dead,
It screams in tyrants' eyes,
It has reached the peak of mountains high,

It comes searing 'cross the skies.

It lights the dark of this prison cell,
It thunders forth its might,
It is 'the undauntable thought', my friend,
That thought that says 'I'm right!'

Palestinian Land Day

Journal Entry: Sat Mar 31, 2012, 7:13 AM
March 31, 2012 by occupiedpalestine



March 30 is Palestinian Land Day (Yawm al Ard) on which Palestinians
and all decent folk around the world mark the ethnic cleansing of 90%
of Palestine by Zionist-run Apartheid Israel.
Israel responded by shooting Palestinian protestors in the West Bank and Gaza,
killing 1 and injuring 300.
The Australian ABC (the equivalent of the UK BBC) reported
"Medics in the Gaza Strip said the soldiers used live fire
to prevent protesters from approaching the border of the coastal enclave.
The protests were much quieter than last year,
when Israeli forces fired on hundreds of people
who scaled the border fence from Syria and Lebanon, killing 11 people"
(ABC News, "Palestinian killed in West Bank Land Day rallies", 31 March 2012).



On 30 March 1976 a mass strike was called by the Palestinian National Committee
for the Protection of Palestinian Lands in Israel after Israeli authorities adumbrated
the further confiscation of thousands of acres of Palestinian land in Galilee
and making them closed military zones i.e. further moves in the "Judaisation" of Galilee.
Palestinians protested peacefully but the Israeli authorities
sent military and police into striking Palestinian villages.
In response to stone throwing by Palestinian villagers
the Israelis opened fire on unarmed Palestinian protestors,
killing 6 and wounding hundreds.
Many were arrested and curfews were imposed on a number of villages and towns.
30 March has been subsequently commemorated  as Palestinian Land Day
to mark what is now the alienation and ethnic cleansing
of about 90% of historical Palestine by the genocidal racist Zionists.

Australians For Palestine (AFP),
which "seeks to dispel the myths and disinformation about Palestine in Australia"
has written thus on the Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine [detailed maps provided] (2012): Background.
For Palestinians, their land is their identity and this has been taken away from them
in ever-increasing amounts since the United Nations decided to partition historic Palestine in 1947.
The, the total area of historic Palestine was 6.5 million acres,
with only a mere 370,000 acres under Jewish control.
The Palestinians, who formed the majority population, owned some 2.25 million acres under various titles
with the rest came under the Islamic trust (waqf) and what we would call today "state land".

The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine.
The UN Partition, which divided the land into 56 per cent for the Jewish State,
43 per cent for the Arab State with Jerusalem designated as an International Zone, never eventuated.
Instead, the forcible dispossession of Palestinians began even for Israel was declared a state in 1948.
Jewish Zionist leaders knew that Israel's existence could only be assured
by ridding it of the indigenous Palestinian population.
Zionist militia groups used physical and psychological terror tactics
to force Palestinians to flee their homes in towns and villages
and then took control of 5 million acres of land.
Some 400 Palestinian villages and towns were ethnically cleansed,
but the Palestinians never thought for a moment that they would become "permanent" refugees.
To obliterate any evidence  of these villages, the Jewish National Fund (JNF)
planted hundreds of thousands of non-native trees in their place.
In effect, the new State of Israel took a further 22 per cent of Palestinian land, and to this day,
has denied the indigenous Palestinians their right if return.

Israel's illegal land grabs are continuing.
Since the 1967 war, when Israel occupied the West Bank and Gaza,
Palestinians have been victims of a new wave of land expropriations
and have witnessed the demolition of their homes and the razing of their farmlands
to make way for illegal Israeli settlements, military posts, the Wall and Israeli-only freeways

The Palestinians who remained living in what had become Israel
also feel the effects of Israel's illegal land policies that favor Jewish citizens.
For six decades Israel has refused to allow any new towns or villages
to accommodate the growth  rate of Palestinians.
A 1961 law, which states that the JNF exists:
"for the purpose of settling Jews on such lands and properties",
"blatantly discriminates on the basis if ethnicity"
(see Australians For Palestine (AFP) and Women For Palestine (Melbourne),
"Palestinian Land Day [Yawm al Ard]", Briefing Paper, 30 March 2012).

However the ethnic cleansing of Palestine goes well beyond
the removal of Palestinians from 90% of historical Palestine.
Thus the Syrian Golan Heights that has been occupied by Apartheid Israel since 1967
has been almost completely ethnically cleansed of it's formerly about 150,000 inhabitants.
In 1880 there were about 0.5 million Indigenous Palestinians
and of the 25,000 Jews in Palestine half were immigrants.
Palestinian casualties of war violence total about 80,000 since 1948 and about 100,000 since 1936.
However one must also consider avoidable Palestinian deaths from war, expulsion and occupation
imposed deprivation that now total about 1.9 million since 1948.
Palestinian refugees  total about 7 million.
This has been a Palestinian Genocide as defined by Article 2 of the UN Genocide Convention.

In contrast, according to the Israeli Foreign Ministry:
"From 1920 through 1999, a total of 2,500 residents of Mandatory Palestine and, since 1948,
the State of Israel fell victims to hostile enemy action; in most cases, terrorist attacks"
and "1,218 people have been killed by Palestinian violence and terrorism since September 2000".

The race-based, Zionist-run State of Israel is a democracy by genocide.
Of about 12 million Palestinians only the adults of 1.6 million Palestinian Israelis (21% of the Israeli population)
can vote for the government ruling all of Palestine plus part of Lebanon
and a near-completely ethnically cleansed part of Syria, albeit as third class citizens.
1.6 million Occupied Palestinians are abusively confined to the Gaza Concentration Camp
and 2.7 million Occupied Palestinians live under highly abusive military rule in West Bank Bantustans.
About 6 million Palestinians are forbidden  to even live in Palestine.
There are  5.9 million Jewish Israelis and 0.3 million non-Jewish and non-Arab Israelis
(Google "Palestinian  Genocide": and see the recent book "The Plight of the Palestinians").

Each year Israel passively kills about 3,000 Occupied Palestinian infants,
passively murders about 5,600 Occupied Palestinians through deprivation
and violently kills another circa 600 Occupied Palestinians.
Decent anti-racists around the World must  Boycott Apartheid Israel and its racist supporters
just as it successfully boycotted Apartheid Israel-supported Apartheid South Africa
after the Sharpeville Massacre (69 Africans killed)  (Google "Boycott Apartheid Israel" ).

The genocidal evil of Zionism extends well beyond Palestine to the Zionist-backed US War on Muslims
that has killed 12 million Muslims since 1990 in a swathe of countries from Somalia to Pakistan,
the breakdown of post-1990 violent deaths and avoidable deaths from war-imposed deprivation being
4.6 million (Iraq, 1990-2012), 5.6 million (Afghanistan, 2001-2012),
2.2 million (Somalia, 1992-2012, 0.15 million (Palestine, 1990-2012) and 0.1 million (Libya, 2011-2012).

The above estimates are consonant with under 5 infant deaths totaling 2.0 million (Iraq, 1990-2012),
2.9 million (Afghanistan, 2001-2012), 1.3 million (Somalia, 1992-2012), 0.1 million (Palestine, 1990-2012)
and data not yet available (Libya, 2011-2012)
(90% avoidable and due to US Alliance war crimes in gross contravention of the Geneva Convention)
and refugees totaling 5-6 million (Iraq, 1990-2012), 3-4 million (Afghanistan, 2001-2012),
2 million (Somalia, 1992-2012), 7 million (Palestine, 1990-2012)
and 1.3 million (Libya, 2011-2012) (Google "Muslim Holocaust, Muslim Genocide").

The Zionists have also egregiously subverted and perverted the Western democracies
for very detailed account sent to Australia media, MPs and the Australian Federal Police (AFP)
(see."50 Ways Racist Zionists & Israeli State Terrorism threaten Australia & YOUR country too", Bellaciao, 14 March 2010).

In Australia, the pro-Zionist, slavishly pro-US major parties
(*the Liberal-National Party Coalition and Labor, aka the Lib-Labs)
support spending billions of dollars on religious schools, including those brainwashing children
against the words of outstanding Jewish American scholar Professor Jared Diamond
who in his best-selling book "Collapse" (Prologue, p10, Penguin edition) enunciated the
"moral principle, namely that it is morally wrong for one people to dispossess, subjugate, or exterminate another people"
an injunction grossly violated by racist Zionist (RZ) run Apartheid Israel and its racist,
genocide-committing and genocide-ignoring US Alliance backers.

Further, in Apartheid Israel-supporting Australia
(that treats its Indigenous Australian Aboriginals as badly as Israel treats Indigenous Palestinians),
donations to the Jewish National Fund (intimately involved in the Palestinian Genocide) are tax deductible,
whereas sending a donation to an orphanage in the Gaza Concentration Camp could attract a punishment
of up to life imprisonment under Australia's racially-motivated anti-terrorism laws ("Anti-Terrorism Act 2005″, Wikipedia).

The BBC has released a remarkable film about the killing of three international peace activists by the Israeli army in the occupied Gaza Strip. Documentary evidence provided in the film strongly suggests that the American Rachel Corrie - and two British activists - were murdered.
Last spring, within a period of seven weeks, one British and one American peace activist were killed by the Israeli army in Rafah, a Palestinian town at the southern end of the occupied Gaza Strip. A second Briton was shot in the head leaving him brain-dead. In two of the cases the Israeli army is being blamed for murder; the third is considered "attempted murder."
An Israeli military bulldozer crushed the 23-year-old American peace activist Rachel Corrie, who was the first to die on March 16, as she tried to prevent it from demolishing a Palestinian doctor's home.

Khader Adnan: His dignity. Our shame.

Journal Entry: Thu Feb 16, 2012, 8:52 PM
Editor's Desk, New in Ceasefire - Posted on Thursday, February 16, 2012 10:25
Editorial | Khader Adnan: His dignity. Our shame.
This week, Khader Adnan entered his third month of a hunger strike
against his unlawful detention and mistreatment at the hands of the Israeli military.
The deafening silence by world leaders and media at his plight shames us all.

By Hicham Yezzais (editor-in-chief of Ceasefire Magazine UK)

Palestinians protest in solidarity with Khader Adnan

Somewhere in the Middle East, a 33-year old man is today entering the 60th day of a hunger strike.
He is currently lying – as he has done for weeks – with one hand, and one leg,
shackled to his hospital bed. By the time you read this, he could be dead.

Of course, had he been an Iranian opposition journalist, or a Cuban dissident, or a detained Israeli soldier,
his name would be plastered across your evening news, his face, and that of his pregnant wife and two young children,
ubiquitous on front pages and news websites.
Cameron, Sarkosy, Obama, Ashton, Clinton and other human rights specialists would be queueing up hourly
for their turn to grandstand and hyperventilate about his cruel treatment, about the need to "do something"
to help stop an unspeakable crime from happening.

Unfortunately for the young man, he is Palestinian and, unless you happen to be an activist,
chances are his face, and his name, Khader Adnan, will be news to you.

Adnan, a baker, economics student, and political activist in the Islamic Jihad movement,
was arrested at his home by masked Israeli soldiers on Dec 17th 2011.
He has been detained without charge ever since. This in itself is hardly novel;
tens of thousands of Palestinians are routinely subjected to "administrative detention",
a practice that contravenes most basic tenants of the right to fair and due process.
The difference, this time, is that Adnan decided to say "enough", and to pay whatever it takes to prove he means it.

Palestinian prisoners by Quadraro 55 days of Hunger Strike by KhaledFanni khader adnan by Aheney freedom to our captive by KhaledFanni Wall of Prisoners by Quadraro

Indeed, "whatever it takes" is increasingly likely to mean Adnan will pay for his stance with his life.
A day after his arrest, he began a hunger strike in protest at his detention and ill-treatment.
Almost a month later, on January 8, 2012, he was given a four-month administrative detention order,
which he rejected and appealed immediately.

A few days ago, on February 12th, an Israeli military court rejected his appeal (lodged from his hospital bed).
Adnan's appeal statement provides chilling details of the inhumane and degrading treatment
he had sustained at the hands of the IDF, including being repeatedly interrogated,
whilst shackled to a chair, and subjected to threats to himself and his family.

In a letter released by his lawyer, he wrote:

"I have been humiliated, beaten, and harassed by interrogators for no reason,
and thus I swore to God I would fight the policy of administrative detention
to which I and hundreds of my fellow prisoners fell prey
."



Adnan insists he will maintain his hunger strike unless released or charged.
The court insists on doing neither, ordering him to remain detained, without charge, until May 8th.
A death sentence in all but name.
The military judge in charge of the appeal, blissfully unburdened with any moral qualms
about wilfully sending a man to his death, blamed Khader for his "choice" to continue his hunger strike.

Throughout this sorry but humbling tale of courage in the face of cruelty,
the silence of the world community has been deafening.
Baroness Ashton, the EU's foreign affairs big honcho, has not found it appropriate to utter a single word on the matter,
despite having plenty of time in the past for IDF soldier Gilad Shalit, who was neither dying nor a civilian prisoner.

Similarly, until a few days ago, the international media, including the BBC, CNN and Al-Jazeera,
had little time for Adnan, the longest Palestinian hunger striker to date.
There have now been some breaches into this wall of indifference,
but only as a result of immense pressure from activists and concerned citizens from around the world,
incensed at their leaders' shameful averting of the eyes away from this unfolding tragedy.

Thankfully, many of those who know what's at a stake have refused to keep quiet.

Tommy McKearney, a former member of the IRA

– and who had spent 53 days on hunger strike in 1980 –
sent a video message of solidarity with Adnan



Over the past few days, hundreds of Palestinian prisoners have launched their own hunger strikes
to show their support and appreciation for Adnan's bravery and determination.

Amnesty and other NGOs have issued repeated, and increasingly desperate appeals
for somebody to act before the irreparable happens.
Israeli human rights group Addameer announced in a statement earlier this week
that it "holds the international community responsible for not taking action to save Khader's life".
It also demanded "that the European Union, the United Nations and
the International Committee of the Red Cross intervene with Israel immediately before it is too late."

Of course, Adnan was from the start fully aware the Israelis would be happy to leave him to die,
defiantly proclaiming he was "dying to live".
What he might not have been expecting, however, was that the rest of the world would choose to look the other way.
It is not too late for us to save his life, and our dignity.

★Resistance is not Terrorism★



Wilson Greatbatch
Inventor of Implantable Pacemaker
Dies at 92


By BARNABY FEDER
Published: September 28, 2011 on The New York Times


My Pacemaker Xray by Sarah-Vafidis Pacemaker 3 by JupZje pacemaker by fluidcreativestudio

Pacemaker"I'd like a pacemaker, please. To replace my heart, kind sir. Before the human in me destroys it all. A durable one, for excessive use. My current flaps like a hummingbird.
My face turns red, from overexertion, or that's what I tell myself. In fact, it's entirely too hot, but my hands still shake, so there must be something wrong.
It's defective, I say. I best be quick, and file for an upgrade. Not long to go—it's bound to crash, and I feel obsolete. Look, it's starting. I can't breathe. I think— I've forgotten. How?"
Pacemaker by Jetshadow


Wilson Greatbatch, a professed “humble tinkerer” who, working in his barn in 1958,
designed the first practical implantable pacemaker, a device that has preserved millions of lives,
died on Tuesday at his home in Williamsville, N.Y. He was 92.

His death was confirmed by his daughter, Anne Maciariello.

Mr. Greatbatch patented more than 325 inventions,
notably a long-life lithium battery used in a wide range of medical implants.
He created tools used in AIDS research and a solar-powered canoe,
which he took on a 160-mile voyage on the Finger Lakes in New York to celebrate his 72nd birthday.

In later years, he invested time and money in developing fuels from plants
and supporting work at the University of Wisconsin in Madison
on helium-based fusion reaction for power generation.

He also visited with thousands of schoolchildren to talk about invention,
and when his eyesight became too poor for him to read in 2006,
he continued to review papers by graduate engineering students
on topics that interested him by having his secretary read them aloud. (..read more)


now....just a consideration...



Am I wrong or no one has a pacemaker as a profile photo?
wrote news, eulogies and whatever else?

But I am certain that this man has saved lives!

Ah... but he did not invent the ipod... then who cares...
He obviously was not much of a man...


thought out people... if you can....

The Never Before Campaign for Palestine

Palestine: Never Before has a people suffered such an injustice,
yet displayed resilience and resistance - like Never Before.



Discussions on Palestine and the Palestinian cause have included attempts
to link it to the struggle of South Africans under the apartheid regime
the struggle of the Vietnamese people
the Algerian revolution or other just causes throughout history
The conclusion,however,was that it cannot be compared to any

Mandela - Palestine Poster by Quadraro

What happened in Palestine since 1947 has never happened before
in terms of the combination of the elements:
brutality and racism of the occupier
the injustice of granting one peoples land to others
duration of this injustice,complicity and apathy of the civilized world
as well as Palestinian people's will to resist all that against all odds

Hence the term the Never-Before Campaign:
Injustice that is unfolding like never before
met with resistance and resilience,also like never before

The Never-Before-Campaign for Palestine is a Beirut-based campaign
launched by individuals of different professional backgrounds
including sociologists,political scientists and communications experts

I Resist 01 by Quadraro I Resist 03 by Quadraro I Resist 02 by Quadraro

The Never-Before-Campaign calls for a new approach to support Palestine
and its people,their cause and their resistance movements
This new approach veers away from the traditional competitions
for victim-hood which usually seek to elicit the worlds pity
Pity only yields sympathy

For decades, Palestinians have been treated,at best,as poor unfortunate beings
who might deserve charity and maybe some humanitarian aid
Meanwhile,Israel decides,at its own leisure
which bits of the usurped rights to give back

The Campaign aims at commanding respect
The world does not respect the meek
rather the powerful and the confident
The Palestinian people are victims here
but they are also resilient and determined
The Campaign seeks to communicate this image to the world

I Resist 04 by Quadraro I Resist 05 by Quadraro I Resist 06 by Quadraro

In addition,the image of resistance,that has been suppressed for fear
of being confused with terror,is also and integral part of the campaign
No cosmetics,no facades
A masked gunman is the current image of the Palestinian resistance
whether we like it or not
It is this masked freedom fighter facing the might
of the Israeli army that makes us proud
The campaign does not succumb to
Western sensitivities of the post 9-11 era

The West and the whole world are at fault here
not the Palestinian people or the resistance movements
The Campaign addresses that issue:
Palestine will not wait for Western remorse
that always comes too late
such as for the Holocaust,Rwanda and South Africa

I Resist 08 by Quadraro I Resist 10 by Quadraro I Resist 09 by Quadraro

The Campaign recognizes growing awareness about
the Palestinian cause all over the world and builds on it
It targets different sets of audiences at the same time

The Never Before Campaign has no political
or religious affiliation,it only has one enemy
All those fighting for the same cause are allies to the Campaign
Our purpose is to make those allies as numerous as possible
and to share the credit with them once our cause is victorious

:peace: SUPPORT AND FOLLOW THE CAMPAIGN ON :peace:

Goodbye Vittorio... by Quadraro
ENG

"Take a piece of land 40 kilometers long and five wide.
Call Gaza. Then fill it with one million and four hundred thousand inhabitants.
  After that surround them with the sea to the west, Mubarak's Egypt to the south,
Israel in the north and east and call the Land of the terrorists.
Then declare it war and invade with 232 tanks, 687 armored
  43 stations to launch fighter jets, 105 elicopters armed
221 artillery land units, 346 mortars, three spy satellites,
64 informants, 12 spies infiltrated and 8000 troops.
  And now all this calls ISRAEL DEFENDING ITSELF.
Now stop for a moment and declared THAT AVOID HITTING THE CIVILIAN POPULATION
and defined yourself like THE ONLY DEMOCRACY IN ACTION
  It will be a miracle, from whatever point of view, to avoid hitting those civilians
  or is simply a lie since NO ONE could avoid hitting
  unless he is a LIAR.
They call it ISRAEL DEFENDING ITSELF.
Now comes my question: what would happen if this invader, turns out to be a LIAR?
What would happen to those unarmed CIVILIANS?
How could even Mother Teresa, or even Mickey Mouse, with such firepower,
able to avoid hitting those CIVILIANS in the presence of such an equation/ situation/scenario?
Call this what you will.
Israel was fully aware of the presence of those unarmed people,
because IT WAS ISRAEL TO STAND THERE.
CALL THIS GENOCIDE AND THEN. IT'S MORE CREDIBLE."

FREEDOM FOR VITTORIO by Quadraro
ITA

"Prendete un pezzo di terra, lungo 40 chilometri e largo cinque.
Chiamatelo Gaza. Poi riempitelo con un milione e quattrocentomila abitanti.
Dopo di che circondatelo con il mare ad ovest, l'Egitto di Mubarak a sud,
Israele a nord e ad est e chimatela la Terra dei Terroristi.
Poi dichiaratele guerra e invadetela con 232 carri armati,687 blindati,
43 postazioni di lancio per jet da combattimento, 105 elicotterri armati,
221 unità di artiglieria terrestre, 346 mortai, 3 satelliti spia,
64 informatori, 12 spie infiltrate e 8000 truppe.
E ora chiamate tutto questo ISRAELE CHE SI DIFENDE.
adesso fermatevi per un momento e dichiarate che EVITERETE DI COLPIRE LA POPOLAZIONE CIVILE
e definitevi L'UNICA DEMOCRAZIA IN AZIONE.
Sarà un miracolo, da qualunque punto di vista, evitare di colpire quei civili
oppure sarà semplicemente una menzogna dal momento che NESSUNO potrebbe evitare di colpirli
a meno che non sia un BUGIARDO.
Chiamate tutto questo ISRAELE CHE SI DIFENDE.
Ora arriva la mia domanda: che cosa sucederebbe se questo invasore si rivelasse un BUGIARDO?
Che cosa accadrebbe a quei CIVILI disarmati?
Come potrebbe perfino Madre Teresa, o addirittura Topolino, con tale potenza di fuoco,
riuscire ad evitare di colpire quei CIVILI in presenza di una tale equazione/situazione/scenario?
Chiamate tutto questo come volete.
Israele era perfettamente al corrente della presenza di quelle persone disarmate,
perchè è STATO PROPRIO ISRAELE A METTERLE Lì.
E ALLORA CHIAMTELO GENOCIDIO. E' PIù CREDIBILE."

Vittorio Arrigoni Kidnapped in Gaza




Vittorio Arrigoni, 36, ISM volunteer in Gaza,
was kidnapped earlier today (april 14 2011) in Gaza city.
Later, a youtube video surfaced showing Vittotio blind folded and beaten up.



Salafi Jehadis claimed the responsibility of kidnapping and abducting him
asking Hamas govvernment in Gaza to release Abu Al Waleed Al Maqdisi
in 30 hours fstarting from 11 am today 1442011 or else they would kill him.

All jornos in Gaza, Vittorios friends here and his friends everywhere
ask Hamas to immediately intervene and release Vittiorio
who worked hard to help Gaza for a long time.

Please lets all pray for his safe release.

Update 1
According to PalToday Magazine, Italian Foreign Affairs Office declared
the loss of communication with one of their citizens in Gaza without mentioning
names of confirming that its Vittorio, but its obvious in the Youtube Video
shared earlier that its him.
Ansar Al Sunah “Salafi” Group in Gaza, declared their responsibility of Vittorio’s abduction
and said they will release a press release soon. According to PalToday Magazine.

Source: Gaza Times BlogSpot



No organization linked to al-Qaida in Gaza,
but would, instead, a reality created by Israeli intelligence
to foment internal conflict on Gaza, which uses of 'laborers'local,
indoctrinated and convinced to represent the network of Bin Laden.

"All Gazans know that this organization does not really exist" - we said a colleague on the phone.
There are individuals who claim to its members, but the director is Israel.
This group 'Salafist' has kidnapped Arrigoni to demand the release of their imprisoned comrades.
But why a Westerner? An Italian? Rather, to put pressure on the government in Gaza,
they could kidnap a militant Hamas leader.

Unfortunately, we fear that Israel is behind us, who wants to scare the activists
of the Freedom Flotilla2, departing next month.
There is much anger among the people of Gaza: Vittorio all know and love.

Our Miracle



Good morning by StigmaChina

Each time that I switch on the light
A Miracle it seems to me
That I should rediscover sight
And banish dark so utterly.
One moment I am bleakly blind,
The next exultant life I find.

Below the sable of the sky
My eyelids double darkness make.
Sleep is divine, yet oh how
I Am glad with wonder to awake!
To welcome, glimmery and wan
The mighty Miracle of Dawn.

For I've mad moments when I seem,
With all the marvel of a child,
To dwell within a world of dream,
To sober fact unreconciled.
Each simple act has struck me thus
Incredibly miraculous.

When everything I see and do
So magical can seem to me,
How vain it is to seek the True,
The riddle of Reality...
So let me with joy lyrical
Proclaim all Life a Miracle!
