|The Sad Smile|
I received an SOS yesterday from a man living abroad, whom I knew when I was very active against the occupation. He was young and living in the Dehaishe refugee camp. He is now a doctor working in Germany, but the occupation hits him still, even though he now lives far away.
His sister’s husband was killed, and to add insult to injury, the widow and mother of 7 children whose ages range from 3-13 is threatened with having the house demolished. This is what the brother sent me.
Mr. Mustafa Albaradia is a 51year old man, father of 7 young kids, from 3 up to 13. he was a teacher, he got killed near the entrance of Alaroub refugee camp -hebron as an explanation of having a screwdriver. the israeli Occupation said that his women should take the most important things from the house because they will come back and demolish the house.
The Sad Smile will be happy if there will be justice with peace and love...
Where will the poor woman and her 7 children live?
|This SHIT is DOPE! |
Miko Peled--It’s no wonder Straight Outta Compton didn’t win a Golden Globe or an Oscar. Why in the world would anyone want to recognize a movie about proud, fearless young Black men who are talented and successful? Especially, Black young men who came out of Compton and made it big against all odds. Young Black men who were persecuted by cops their whole lives, yet were courageous enough to look cops straight in the eye, and knowing they will be beaten and arrested, sang at the top of their voices “Fuck the Police!” No, there is no reason for the Academy to recognize, much less present an award to a movie like that. A movie like this is no more likely to receive recognition than a movie about young Palestinians throwing rocks and facing off Israeli soldiers – they are all practically terrorists. [replace "Black" with "Palestinian" to see the parallel. dn]

|My family’s Nakba story|
Tamara Nassar--My paternal grandparents were expelled from their homeland in the 1948 Palestinian Nakba. Absence has since been embroidered in the fabric of what came to be a family born in a memory of an unattainable land. The distance between home and homeland translated itself in a tense displacement: the income of a Palestinian butcher shop in Jordan, eighteen people living between two rooms, trading a broken tongue for the sake of broken English, existential embarrassment in the name of state-security, passports for breakfast, figs in the afternoon. dn
