I am a library professional with progressive political leanings who has been involved with a lot of issues. Outside of environmental issues, human rights is of great concern to me. I have been a member of Amnesty International since 1997.

  • Occupation, in the details
    • Love your recent painting from your Mondoweiss post with the title Occupation, in the Details. These paintings manage to say more than what most people publish in the blogs on Mondoweiss, and in the many human rights reports in Amnesty International and B'Tselem. It takes great courage to places where others fear to tread(and I suspect where most people are not allowed to go). Take care.

  • Israeli President Reuven Rivlin calls for removal of Israeli flag
    • Thanks for this article Philip and Adam. I wish could become a reality and might if people in North America knew about the darker trends that are exposed in this website and others. I had a chance to hear David Sheen come and speak at the University of Calgary to talk about racism in Israel and he ended his talk with the infamous quote by President Rivlin about Israel being a "sick society". I only hope that the world can provide intervention to save Israel from themselves.

  • 'Obama coffee' is black and weak -- racist tweet from wife of Israel's vice premier
    • It seems that this type of racism is more typical than I thought. The work of David Sheen and Max Blumenthal has brought that to light for me and the writers of this blog. Let's hope that the BDS movement grows to confront Israelis about this problem.

    • I haven't traveled to Israel, but I have heard that there are these blatant expressions of racism from much of the population. I have heard these kinds of discourse from many of Israel's supporters. This was also exposed

  • Israeli leader turns on US Jewish journalists Friedman, Wieseltier, Remnick and Silvers for disloyalty and anti-semitism!
    • That's right Annie. There is very little in the way of real criticism of Israel in the mainstream media. I learned a lot from website and Max's book "Goliath". If you were to mention the reality of the African refugees, most people would look at you as if you were from Neptune. Frankly, the people who reside on another planet are Israel's defenders!!
