The wonder of imperial feminism

is a Palestinian writer and the author of the international bestselling novel, Mornings in Jenin (Bloomsbury 2010). She is also the founder of Playgrounds for Palestine, an NGO for children.

  from Al Jazeera with thanks         When I was a little girl, like many women of my generation who grew up watching American television shows (even if they were dubbed in Arabic), I used to twirl and twirl, trying to attain super powers like Wonder Woman.

Wonder Woman and Samantha had the power to change their lives, even if that power had to remain hidden, forever a secret.

Through the speakers of the village’s mosque, a warning was issued: Israeli forces had entered the area and were preparing to demolish a house.

Men, women and children rushed towards the site of the impending demolition. The village’s women were the first on the scene. Continue reading Palestinian women lead resistance in Budrus

Anonymous vs Israel.. War is the health of the psychotic religious State,

‘The nation State takes advantage of our nationalist feelings to concentrate corruption, control  and money. The religious nation state is 10 times worse, guaranteeing totalitarian control by psychotic power freaks… Then there is the religious state claiming to be  the ‘Chosen Race’ and just one ethnic group, like Israel, which is a recipe for fascist genocide”

 Hacker group Anonymous has  taken down the website of the Israeli secret service Mossad in protest of Israel’s military incursion in Gaza. The ‘hacktivists’ have already targeted a number of organizations in their mission to stop the “genocide.”

Good News At Last! .. Syria Bombing to be Cancelled?

1235308_206843849483180_604843799_n

Great news! By just 13 votes the Brit Parliament voted against bombing Syria.

This, along with Arab League failure to endorse, French backing off and a snowballing anti-war campaign at home MAY BE ENOUGH to stop the US attacking Syria.

Bad news for US corporations and the arms market. Bad news for the Israelis, for all the imperialist, racist and sexist warmongers who get hot on the idea of blowing people to pieces for their own profit and prestige. Continue reading Good News At Last! .. Syria Bombing to be Cancelled?

Absurd, genocidal, ‘Peace’ talks’ in Palestine

‘Peace talks’ are the perfect alibi for expanding Israel’s illegal settlements on Palestinian land        Mairav Zonszein

US set to bomb #Syria with Ridiculous Pretext.

UPDATE 6th MAY

Re-Blogging this from a few months baxck as the US  gets ready to start bombing, with the ridiculous pretext of chemical weapons, see here  Washington fabricates chemical weapons pretext for war against Syria  and Israel already started bombing...

STOP STOP STOP THEM NOWsyrian children

The final logic of Capitalism is war. The excuse of a ‘chemical weapons’ in Syria is as false as Saddam’s secret weapons. This time round more millions of innocents will die, to boost the profits of the US ‘War Economy’ Corporations who control the US Congress. This time round there is little protest, nobody believes they can be serious, but  this war is becoming daily more certain. Now is the time for the US  and UK public to stop a barbaric air blitz…
