This is turning into a fucking shitshow. It was crazy shits like this that kidnapped and killed that Palestinian boy. Now they’ve gone and beaten up the Israeli-Arab DEPUTY MAYOR OF HAIFA AND HIS SON.  AND THE POLICE DIDN’T STOP THEM, THEY SAW BUT DIDN’T STOP THEM.

And now they are harassing the left-wingers as well. Honestly, they are terrorists and are wrecking Israel. These people are not the voice of Israel, but they are so loud and powerful that they make the rest of the world think it is.

And two of them are planning to use an insanity plea because they have OCD.

I have had OCD my entire life, and have been medicated and off medication. Sorry, but it doesn’t cause people to kidnap a teenager, beat him up, and SET HIM ON FIRE because of his ethnicity.

This was completely calculated; they even had tried to abduct a small Palestinian child who was walking with his brother and mother, but the mother fought back and they punched her in the face. I hope the Israeli courts will punish them to the full extent of the law, but I am really doubtful…

From Haaretz:

Asked last week whether he had faith in Israel’s judicial system, Mohammed’s father Hussein Abu Khdeir told Haaretz: “I don’t trust them. Not in the least. I am afraid. I am really afraid. I think they will say that [the murderers] were insane and give them a year or two and that’s all.”

It’s been a long time since I’ve woken up to such good news. 

Opinions, anyone?

I wish I had the kind of power to do something like this…

This website will be the fucking death of me I swear.
People are actually glorifying Robert Mugabe, what are we coming to?
Robert Mugabe is a vile and viscous dictator responsible for the ruin of his own people, using widespread torture and political murder. He is viciously homophobic, calling gays “worse than dogs and pigs”.
Oh but he hates white people, so somehow that makes him a Tumblr hero.
Fuck this website so hard.

The horrible irony of using a gif from Paris is Burning to support a violent, extremely homophobic dictator who has said that gay people should be beheaded (see first link below). Not to mention basically drove his country into the ground, got it into the Second Congo War, and is handing over that land what he’s taken to his cronies. Also, if you think Mugabe is any kind of hero to black people, I would go look up what he did to the Ndebele people with the “Gukurahundi” plan…Basically, he had the North Korean military train the 5th Brigade to carry out mass murders of the Ndebele ethnic group in the 1980s.

While I strongly disagree with Israel’s current military actions against Gaza and feel that such actions are quite despicable and illegal (warranting immediate, strong international sanctions until they cease), I am not sure how I feel about this particular form of protest…Especially at a place like Yad Vashem.

Though it does certainly have the power of being instantly striking and difficult to ignore, which is what protest is supposed to do. Still…

Thoughts?

PARIS — A teenage Roma boy lay in a coma in a hospital here on Tuesday after being abducted from a shantytown and beaten last week, apparently in retaliation for what his assailants thought were thefts he committed in a nearby housing project, the French authorities said.

Politicians and rights groups condemned the attack, which police and judicial officials said involved as many as a dozen people. No racial motives were immediately apparent, and investigators have made no arrests.

President François Hollande, whose leftist government has sharply accelerated the destruction of Roma camps, called the abduction and beating “beyond words and unjustifiable.” Mr. Hollande did not call the attack a hate crime, however.

The New York Times, June 17th

Not a hate crime, my ass…Fucking France. Then again, it is Europe, and therefore not surprising in the least when it comes to how awfully Sinti and Roma are still treated (go read about the mass sterilizations of Roma women that happened in the decades after WWII if you want to go hate everything for a while).

(Oh, and we went to the Sinti and Roma Holocaust Memorial in Berlin while I was there. That Memorial is only a little under two years old.)

Israel…No.
Moving 70,000 Bedouins from their traditional lands in the Negev to make more settlements is just not okay. I mean, the country already has a history of treating the Bedouins badly (they are the poorest, most deprived people in the country).
You would figure, being a young-ish Western-styled country, that you would have learned something from how the US has historically treated the Native Americans…But apparently not.
Israel, you are making it really hard for me to try to support you.

If grandmothers around the world had a rallying cry, it would probably sound something like “You need to eat!”

Photographer Gabriele Galimberti’s grandmother said something similar to him before one of his many globetrotting work trips. To ensure he had at least one good meal, she prepared for him a dish of ravioli before he departed on one of his adventures.  

“In that occasion I said to my grandma ‘You know, Grandma, there are many other grandmas around the world and most of them are really good cooks,” Galimberti wrote via email. “I’m going to meet them and ask them to cook for me so I can show you that you don’t have to be worried for me and the food that I will eat!’ This is the way my project was born!”

The project, “Delicatessen With Love”, took Galimberti to 58 countries where he photographed grandmothers with both the ingredients and finished signature dishes.

Galimberti said many of the subjects for the project were selected serendipitously, picked while he was working on a project about couch surfing that explored the global phenomenon of staying in other people’s houses. Since Galimberti never slept in hotels while working on the project, he was able to come into contact with people who introduced him to grandmothers in the area.

Galimberti acted as photographer and stylist during each shoot with the grandmothers, taking a portrait of both the women and the food they made for him.
