Israel-Palästina


Das Manisfest der Jugend von Gaza (Englisch).

Fuck Hamas. Fuck Israel. Fuck Fatah. Fuck UN. Fuck UNWRA. Fuck USA! 

 We, the youth in Gaza, are so fed up with Israel, Hamas, the occupation, the violations of human rights and the indifference of the international community! We want to scream and break this wall of silence, injustice and indifference like the Israeli F16’s breaking the wall of sound; scream with all the power in our souls in order to release this immense frustration that consumes us because of this fucking situation we live in; we are like lice between two nails living a nightmare inside a nightmare, no room for hope, no space for freedom. We are sick of being caught in this political struggle; sick of coal dark nights with airplanes circling above our homes; sick of innocent farmers getting shot in the buffer zone because they are taking care of their lands; sick of bearded guys walking around with their guns abusing their power, beating up or incarcerating young people demonstrating for what they believe in; sick of the wall of shame that separates us from the rest of our country and keeps us imprisoned in a stamp-sized piece of land; sick of being portrayed as terrorists, homemade fanatics with explosives in our pockets and evil in our eyes; sick of the indifference we meet from the international community, the so-called experts in expressing concerns and drafting resolutions but cowards in enforcing anything they agree on; we are sick and tired of living a shitty life, being kept in jail by Israel, beaten up by Hamas and completely ignored by the rest of the world.

Edith Lutz: Freunde und Feinde Israels.

Macbeth, der schottische Edelmann, wird zu Beginn der Shakespeareschen Tragödie als ein Mensch mit widersprüchlichen, aber überwiegend positiven Eigenschaften vorgestellt: Er ist mutig, sensibel, nobel, loyal. Aus einer möglicherweise falsch verstandenen Vision heraus - drei Hexen prophezeien die Königskrone für Macbeth - begeht er den ersten schwerwiegenden Fehler. Um diesen zu verdecken, erfolgt der zweite, der dritte. Alle folgenden Rechtsbrüche dienen der Verdeckung der vorangegangenen. Er mordet, lässt morden, verbreitet Lügen und beordert Spione in die Häuser anderer Regenten. In diesem verzweifelten und paranoiden Zustand sieht er sich von allen Seiten von Feinden umgeben. Je verzweifelter die Lage für Macbeth wird, desto größer ist der Verlust des moralischen Empfindens. Es scheint für Macbeth kein Zurück zu geben. Er muss weiter töten, bis er selber im Kampf mit dem Feindbild getötet wird. Mit Laubzweigen des nahen Waldes getarnt nähert sich das feindliche Heer der Burg Macbeths und erfüllt eine weitere Vision der Hexen: der Wald von Birnam bewegt sich – auf Macbeths Untergang zu.

Civil Disobedience / Ziviler Ungehorsam:

Israelische Frauen bringen Palästinensische Frauen und Kinder von der Westbank zu einem Ausflug ans Meer.

300 Academics Join 40 "Civil Disobedience" Women

Willing to Break Israel's Entry Laws

 

About 300 lecturers and teachers from institutes of higher education throughout Israel have signed a public advertisement in support of civil disobedience actions of a group of women who openly infringe the law of entry to Israel. The academics put their full names in an advertisement which was published in Ha'aretz newspaper last Friday, 17 June 2011, next to an advertisement – the third in recent months - published by the women's group called "Civil Disobedience". (For the advertisement itself, see attachment.) The women, who have all been investigated by Jerusalem police and who now have official criminal records, called for the Israeli public to join them in their protest activity which consists of driving Palestinian women and children for a day at Israeli recreational sites and the beach.  These actions come in the wake of writer and translator Ilana Hammerman's initiative, who started publicizing such activities last year.

"We recognize neither the legality, nor the morality, nor the wisdom of the walls between us and our neighbors which have been erected with brute force," stated the group in its advertisement.

Alongside the women's statement, a support letter from the academics appeared, including the following words:  We, the undersigned women and men, state that we are willing to collaborate with the actions of the "Civil Disobedience" women. In these dark hours, we are willing to drive their guests, Palestinian women and children, to hide them and to support their challenge in any other way, whether in deeds or in words.  The action of these women shows the right way for any Israeli citizen who truly supports a democracy respectful of human rights. Should Israel's legal system find it appropriate to prosecute and penalize these women we shall be willing to support them, to join them and to be tried alongside them.
