Theresa May Wants British People To Feel 'Pride' In The Balfour Declaration

What exactly is there to be proud of? 
Balfour initiated a policy of British support for Israel which continues to this very day, to the detriment of the occupied Palestinians of the West Bank and the five million Palestinian refugees living largely in warrens of poverty around the Middle East, including Israeli-besieged Gaza. Surely we should apologise
By Robert Fisk: Theresa May told us that Britain will celebrate the centenary of the Balfour Declaration this summer with “pride”. This was predictable. A British prime minister who would fawn to the head-chopping Arab autocrats of the Gulf in the hope of selling them more missiles – and then hold the hand of the insane new anti-Muslim president of the United States – was bound, I suppose, to feel “pride” in the most mendacious, deceitful and hypocritical document in modern British history.

Songs Of The Crickets + Children Of Diaspora

GlobalFaction: ESSAM - Though we spoke different languages I was able to interact with the locals. I learned that the body is a tongue and it speaks its own dialect. There is a perspective where individuals believe third world countries don't have much in terms of materials and revenue, but in actuality these beautiful individuals have far more than the "wealthiest" people in the world can ever attain. That is the wealth of contentment, beautiful character, and collectiveness as a community. My inspiration to create this piece, Songs of the Crickets, was to reflect, learn, and obtain aspects of the village's culture and to incorporate it into our own flawed individualistic society where we are stripped of our identity living in the West.

Jim Crow Is Alive And Well In Israel

Long before Israel erected separate communities, the United States perfected the art of the artificial divide.
By Stanley L Cohen: For years, Israel has sold, and we in the United States have bought, the cheap peel-away sticker that it is the "lone democracy" in the Middle East.

It has a nice, assuring ring to it, sort of like "opportunity" or "peace", whatever these chants may, in practice, mean. But, like beauty, it remains very much in the eye of the beholder, and like reality, sooner or later the truth surfaces, no matter how well its fiction is packaged.
We in the US are damn good at packaging ourselves, and our charade of equality and justice is second to none. We sell stuff; lots of it. Much of it false. Very much like a willing stepchild, Israel has learned from us that if you say something long enough with vigour, power and money to back it, it begins to take on a surreal life of its own, no matter how much reality puts the lie to its embroidery. Indeed, we are quite accomplished at obfuscation. We know it all too well. We've hidden behind the fog of it for so long that, even today, those who remind us that the earth is, in fact, not flat, remain heretics to be scorned. Have we found the weapons of mass destruction yet?
