Humanize Palestine attempts to restore the humanity that is often stripped away when Palestinians are reduced to calculative deaths, forgettable names, and burned and mutilated bodies, rather than people who shared loved ones, stories, dreams and aspirations.
“The larvae of caddisflies live in streams and ponds and cover their bodies with portable cases made of small stones and other materials webbed together with silk. This case-making habit gives the order its common name, since the word caddis means “case”. The adults are found near the streams, ponds, or lakes in which the larvae live. Caddisflies are attracted to lights in large numbers.”—Trichoptera | Insect Orders | 4-H and Youth | Extension | Entomology | Kansas State University
“As with a lot of topics, writing about Israeli war crimes endangers your career. The publishers and editors don’t want to hear; powerful politicians don’t want to read it. Those who wrote against the Iraq war tended to get demoted or lose their jobs. It’s not so bad for Israel and Palestine, of course: if you’re the sort of person who might write such articles, you’ll never make it to a position to write those articles.”—Israel’s killing of Palestinians and the Media (via azspot)
Lastrealindians, I am sorry for my outrageous and particularly criminally insane rants the past 900 trillion years or so. I'm just so deeply attached to Native Americans, Aboriginals, Moari, South American native Indians, native black Africans, that when they are being attacked by someone who regardlessly attacks and kills them, I get so angry that I lose myself and become a wild and violent person. I just want to help fix the whole world. I am sorry to everyone. And you are better than me, RLI.
You may be ‘attached’ to us but its clear from your messages that you don’t understand who Natives really are. Warriors acted primarily in defense of the people and the land. We weren’t about slaughtering innocent people. You’re thinking of the 7th cavalry. We joke about whites sometimes but LRI understands that it’s the imperial colonial heteropatriarchial capitalist-corporatist system couched in the Doctrine of Discovery that is the real problem. Lets not call people evil or bad purely on the basis of race. You said you’re white yourself. One of LRI’s founding writers has a white mother. Don’t push a race war agenda. People who do that hurt Native causes.
“I’ve always thought liberal and conservative were terms used not to think but to avoid thinking. You can classify anything as liberal or conservative, then simply declare yourself one or the other, and all your thought for the rest of your life can be a knee jerk.”—Peter Kreeft, Between Heaven and Hell (via contrariansoul)
