Video: Celebrities, artists and activists call for Palestinian freedom in #GazaNames project

The above video was just released at freedom4palestine.org. A press release explains the project:

A diverse group of celebrities, artists, and activists that includes American Jews and Palestinians are speaking out for Palestinian human rights in a video released online today. The video is a first of its kind expression of support for Palestinian freedom, equality and justice and features celebrities such as Chuck DJonathan DemmeGloria SteinemWallace ShawnTony KushnerMira NairRoger WatersBrian Eno, and others holding signs with the names and ages of Palestinian civilians recently killed by the Israeli military in Gaza.

“The Israeli leaders seem sincere when they say they believe that their actions are appropriate. Apparently, one of ‘us’ is worth many more of ‘them,’” said actor and playwright Wallace Shawn, who provides the voice-over narration for the video. “American leaders know they are lying when they defend the murder of children in their beds. And we, the public, pay for the bombs, pay for the airplanes, and pretend not to notice what’s going on.”

As Israel continues its assault against the occupied, besieged, and blockaded Gaza Strip, which has killed more than 1,000 Palestinians since July 7, most of them civilians, a growing number of global citizens of conscience feel compelled to speak out against Israel’s disproportionate attack on the Palestinian people. In addition to those featured in this video, a growing number of celebrities have been speaking out via social media about the horrors we are witnessing in Gaza, as reported recently by BuzzFeed and The Hollywood Reporter.

“We wanted to provide a platform for the growing list of prominent individuals who are outraged by Israel’s brutal violence against Gaza’s civilian population,” said Rebecca Vilkomerson, executive director of Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP), an organization that co-produced the video. “Our message is that securing freedom and justice for Palestinians is the only pathway to a lasting peace.”

“My family was forced to flee our beloved Jerusalem in 1948 and every day since then, we have longed for freedom,” said Nina Saah, an 83-year-old Nakba survivor featured in the video. “What is happening in Gaza breaks my heart all over again. And yet I am so moved by all those who have come together in this video and the outpouring of support I am seeing for Palestinians. It gives me hope that the people of the world will be the ones to change our situation and that freedom and justice will come.”

“This is a scream on paper. This is a wail,” said playwright Eve Ensler, one of the artists featured in the video. “There are no more words. Only this moment where we rise against the illegal and deathly occupation of Palestine, against mass slaughter of the defenseless, against the complicit silence of the international community, against the military might and arrogance of the Israeli and the U.S. governments who choose annihilation over justice and love.”

    Speaking of celebrities and Gaza, Zayn Malik of the boy band One Direction posted a #freepalestine tweet and it got 160k likes and retweets. There has been an Israeli backlash with hashtags like #zaynyouhavefansinisrael which are kind of amusing until you realize that a lot of Israeli kids are more upset about this tweet than 1,000 people being slaughtered a few miles away.

    Also, Madonna tweeted of facebooked a picture of flowers and said that they were for the children of Gaza…a statement of support a little more discreet than the display she put on in Israel the last time she was there.

    “Even in our sovereign and independent country, we – as if still living in a shtetl of some bygone age, surrounded by a protective wall called Israel – preserve and foster a pathological view of Jewish-gentile relations. At present, all this trapped energy is directed at our Middle Eastern surroundings.

    It’s not only the Arabs we can’t talk to: It’s also the United States, Europe or anyone else. We are a self-absorbed people who live within ourselves. The State of Israel is continuing to employ the strategy of alienation that was always practiced by the Jewish people. We cast all our cumulative historic accounting onto our Palestinian adversaries. They fulfill the present needs; in the past we had Pharaoh, Haman, Antiochus, Khmelnytsky and Hitler. Now it’s the Palestinians’ turn. ”

      What a great essay by Burg; thank you, Bilal, for the link. Zionists MUST READ!

      The lines I requote above remind me of advice I’ve heard given (and that I’ve given myself) to someone who complains bitterly about their terrible fortune when it comes to relationships. “Oh, woe is me,” they whine after their latest breakup, “yet another psycho lover! I have the worst luck trying to find the right person for me!”

      Uh, no. One or two is bad luck; serial incompatibility is a pattern, and you’d best look in the mirror if you really want to know why this “keeps happening” to you.

    Brave of these good people to openly show their support for the poor civilians who have lost their lives through no fault of theirs. This is a great effort. Thank you.

    It is unbelievable that the majority of celebrities, media personnel, and those who are in the limelight have this wall of silence, and never, ever, has the courage to whisper one negative word about the brutality of Israel, not a murmur about the children being blown apart, or horribly injured, and they are mothers, fathers, and family members. They, like all of us, see the horrible images on our television screens, or on the internet, and yet, there is a silence.
    They seem to put their precious jobs and future prospects for lucrative roles and contracts, over showing sympathy for a powerless people, who deserve so much support, and the world to speak out for them. I guess their silence may mean they agree with this massacre in Gaza by Israel. Shame.

    It seems evil strikes again, this time a park in Gaza:
    Huffpost:
    “GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — A Gaza park was attacked Monday, killing at least 10 Palestinians, including children, a Palestinian health official said. Israelis and the Palestinians traded blame for the strike.

    Children were playing on a swing when the strike hit the park in the Shati refugee camp on the edge of Gaza City, said Ayman Sahabani, head of the emergency room at nearby Shifa Hospital.

    He gave the death toll and said 46 people also were wounded.

    The strike on the park occurred a few minutes after the hospital’s outpatient clinic was hit, leaving several people wounded. Camera crews were prevented from filming the area of impact at Shifa.

    Gaza’s police operations room, Civil Defense and Sahabani said the deaths and injuries were caused by Israeli airstrikes.”

    They are the lowest of the low. Palestinian lives are cheap for them, by the way they keep blasting them with their 500 pound bombs. Must be Israel’s way of defending themselves from children and babies, considering the casualty numbers, they keep wiping out women and children. The cowards.

      “”Also on Monday, hundreds of top Jewish organizational and community leaders from across the country will converge on Washington, DC Monday at the National Press Club in a show of solidarity with the people and the State of Israel. The “National Leadership Assembly Israel,” convened by the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations, will, for the first time in many years, bring together leaders of the nation’s biggest Jewish organizations and representatives from more than 40 Jewish communities.

      High ranking speakers include National Security Advisor Susan Rice, House Speaker John Boehner, Israeli ambassador to the U.S. Ron Dermer, Congressional leaders Rep. Kevin McCarthy and Steny Hoyer; Reps Ed Royce, and Eliot Engel, as well as Senator Ben Cardin.

      “We expect a broad representation from across the country, including scores of national organizations, Jewish Federations and Community Relations Councils, the various synagogue streams, as well as prominent non-Jews,” Conf of President’s Robert Sugarman and Malcolm Hoenlein said in a statement. “We are most appreciative of the strong response to the announcement of the Assembly, reflecting the strong feelings of identification with Israel at this critical time.””

        We arm them, aid them, and show that the world’s greatest super power, will ignore the slaughter of innocents, just to prove how much more we love them.

    “German footballer Mesut Ozil, who plays for Arsenal, reportedly said he is donating his World Cup earnings to the children of Gaza following his country’s triumph in the cup. The German Football Association awarded each of the team’s players a €300,000 bonus for winning the cup, in addition to €150,000 following their semi-final win and other rewards for every game.”

    http://www.theguardian.com/sport/2014/jul/28/moeen-ali-england-wristbands-save-gaza-free-palestine

    “England have defended Moeen Ali’s right to wear wristbands demonstrating his support and sympathy for the people of Gaza when batting on the second day of the third Test against India in Southampton.

    The International Cricket Council’s code of conduct bans players from displaying “messages which relate to political, religious or racial activities or causes”, and an ICC spokesman confirmed on Monday that the governing body is “investigating the matter”.

    But England believe that Moeen’s messages – “Save Gaza” and “Free Palestine” – were humanitarian rather than political, after the 27-year-old had already been pictured raising money for the Gaza relief efforts in his home city of Birmingham last week.”

    If Bob Geldof is reading this, then I gotta question or two here for Bob.

    Bob, what is the difference between a starving African child and a Gaza child being starved by the israeli siege?

    What is the difference between a starving African child and a Gaza child being targeted by a charging F-16?

    I’m hoping you would say ‘there is no difference in these terrible tragedies whatsoever’. And indeed this would be the right and only answer to give. The suffering of children – all children – grieves our souls into pits of despair. So… why the f*ck don’t we hear a pipsqueak from you about the mass murder of children in Gaza?

    I’m frankly asking you to tell us why you continue to support Apartheid israel and its genocide and infanticide of Palestinian children? Well, you are silent about the heinous murders, aren’t you? You’ve been silent for decades, Bob. You’re not a neutral humanitarian in this conflict. Why is that? What is wrong with you, man?! I mean you shook hands with Mandela for Pete’s sakes – quite a few times, beginning with this here:

      Taxi , not sure if this might have informed his thinking.The article below is from Jpost and quotes the daily Mail.

      “According to the Daily Mail, the model discovered last year that she also has Jewish roots.

      “Peaches is Jewish – her grandmother is Jewish – she only discovered it last year,” her husband reportedly said. “It makes a lot of sense to me. She seems to me like a Jewish woman, the way she thinks and behaves. The first present I ever bought her was a Star of David from an antiques shop in Covent Garden. She wears and really loves it.”

      According to the Algameiner, the couple were married in September 2013 in a traditional Jewish ceremony, and even danced the Hora.

      Cohen reportedly said, “My parents met on a kibbutz in Israel, I’m very proud to be Jewish and a big part of me being a creative person comes from being Jewish. The eccentricity in Jewish musicians really connects with me.”

      During last year’s Passover seder, Geldof shared a candid photo on her Instagram account of their authentic holiday dinner.”

    In Great Britain, 21,000 sign a call for an arms embargo against Israel:

    The rock star Peter Gabriel and film-maker Ken Loach are among 21,000 people who have signed an open letter to David Cameron, the British prime minister, demanding an immediate halt to the arms trade between the UK and Israel.

    The letter was delivered today, directly to Cameron’s residence at 10 Downing Street in London by Loach and three members of parliament — Jeremy Corbyn, Diane Abbott and Jim Fitzpatrick.

    Prominent signatories included fashion designer Bella Freud, journalist and activist Jemima Khan, musicians Bobby Gillespie of Primal Scream, Robert Del Naja of Massive Attack, Brian Eno and Bryan Adams, the writers Will Self, Hanif Kureishi, Ahdaf Soueif, Esther Freud, Laura Bailey and William Dalrymple, and the actors David Morrissey, Maxine Peake and Alexei Sayle.

    Academics Karma Nabulsi (a PSC patron), Ghada Karmi and Steven Rose and human rights lawyer Geoffrey Bindman also signed the letter.

    The letter was posted on the Palestine Solidarity Campaign’s website earlier this week and gathered 21,000 signatures in just two days.

    Meanwhile all the Americans I know don’t care, even those who know what Israel is doing. Not enough to even tweet one protest, or email one protest to a friend. They do so more for anxious dogs at the pound. This includes my own family. I’m beyond frustrated. My congressional reps don’t even bother to respond. I have no power to stop what’s happening in Gaza. I don’t even have the power to convince my friends and family something needs to be done now.

      My guess, Citizen is that as soon as you say Israel your friends and family stop listening because they know its a 1/2 step from “Israel” to “the Jews” with you, and (as you have said here before) how we don’t give David Duke’s ideas enough of a chance, etc… They probably see that kind of discussion as a fixed cost not worth paying.

      I actually have come to suspect you are probably a nice person in real life in the ways that matter. My guess is that if my car broke down in front of your house and I rang your bell you would help me get to a mechanic.

      The thinking you display here though is bigoted and essentialist (permanently innocent and authentic but slightly dopey non Jewish Americans- Dick and Jane you call them, manipulated by an eternal carpetbagging cosmopolite i.e. The Jews).

      You once, for example, asked which side of Obama’s ancestry you should blame for his ineptness on I/P, the black side or white, when of course the answer is neither, since ethnicity does influence choices but from politics not genetics.

      Fortunately for the rights movement in I/P more and more Jews are going to get in the game publicly and privately. And more and more non-Jews who cannot be construed as anti-Jewish bigots in any way, who don’t have a racist bone in their bodies, are seeing Gaza in human terms. Since, despite your ideas, American non-Jews have been zionist for their own reasons since the creation of Israel. You may even come to disregard your own thesis.

      • on July 28, 2014, 7:50 pm

        That’s the strategy, isn’t it. Condition the population to think any criticism of Israel or Jewish Orgs equals the Holocaust.

        Unlike Citizen’s part of the country, my friends and associates have no problem expressing themselves on Israel and or the Jews. Maybe because I am in more mainstream church and libertarian land, not Christian zio land.
        And a low opinion of Jews is a trend due to Israel and to ‘ethnic’ jewish politicians like Schumer, Engle et al…out leading rallies calling for the complete destruction of Gaza.

You think I’m the HAMAS charter and a David Duke lover. You think HAMAS and David Duke never assert any facts? Do you, or don’t you, think the power of the Israel Lobby is a fact? Do you live in USA? You seem stupid and don’t understand satire or irony. Glad you see more and more non-Jewish Americans are starting to see the real Gaza, for example, and that $8.5 million per day to Israel behind that old movie Exodus starring Paul Newman. I happen to believe that “Never Again” applies as universal humanistic principle, not merely a blank check to oppress the natives in the Holy Land. Remember “the good German?” What do you think these days about “the good Israeli?” Do two wrongs make a right? I was helping Phil Weiss get rid of bigots on this blog before you ever came here.

It it too arrogant to heed caution, warnings, or care about condemnation. They act like they are above all laws. The only entity that can stop this madness is the US, but since most politicians and leaders are already in the pockets of these zionists, nothing will be done. Let the brown skinned Arabs be massacred, and we will continue to send Israel even deadlier weapons to use against them. This is a horrible, horrible massacre of human being while the world watches and does nothing. The genocide of the Palestinians.

    My apologies, Annie. I know you prefer a little excerpt and a link.

    Open Letter to the Conscience of Humanity.

    It is only right and fitting that a proper response be made to the OpEd written by Moshe Feiglin, Deputy Speaker of the Knesset, and head of the Manhigut Yehudit (“Jewish Leadership”) faction of Israel’s governing Likud party, entitled My Outline for a Solution in Gaza and published in Arutz Sheva on July 15th, 2014.

    1. An international commission should be established to bring Israel and its supporters to account for its ongoing genocide of the Palestinian people, dating back to the first terrorist attacks on Palestinian and British targets in Palestine by the Irgun and other Jewish terrorist organizations starting in 1937. This near century long crime can properly be termed a holocaust, as its ruthlessness, intensity, longevity and destruction of lives and property is on a par with, or exceeds, the crimes of those prosecuted by the Nuremberg and Tokyo war crimes trials.

    2. The first task of this commission would be to identify the most culpable of the Zionist criminals still living, not to exceed one thousand people. Millions are guilty but bringing those most responsible for the suffering of the Palestinians, the Lebanese, the Iraqis, the Libyans, the Iranians, the Egyptians, the Syrians et al and the many millions of other direct and indirect victims of the Zionist project, would best serve the cause of justice.

    3. Those people so identified should be drawn from the various sectors of society that have been primarily responsible for the heinous war crimes and crimes against humanity committed over these years, regardless of their countries of residence, particularly among the politicians, the military, the media, the financiers, the public intellectuals, academics, the religious leaders and the leaders of Zionist organizations. Those found guilty would be sentenced to a minimum of life in solitary confinement without parole.

    4. In addition to those specifically indicted, all of those people who have actively provided material, organizational or public support for this genocide should be rounded up and interned in camps designated for this purpose. Given the very large numbers of such people, the so-called FEMA camps in the United States would be suitable for this purpose. An alternative site could be constructed in the Siberian Oblast set aside by the Soviet Union for the Jewish people. An appeals process would be instituted to ensure that only the clearly culpable would remain in these camps. Those adjudged guilty would be consigned to hard labor and re-education designed to eventually make them suitable for re-entry into human society, if that is at all possible.

    5. Given the impotence of the United Nations, due to the veto power and influence of those countries that have historically aided and abetted the aforesaid crimes, such a commission could not be instituted through its auspices. The UN must first either be reformed to make it a truly representational international body, or it must be replaced by a new organization that represents the highest norms and values of humanity, rather than merely an instrument of control by the victors of the last world war. The International Criminal Court would be the ideal venue, if the jurisdictional problems (the US and Israel are not signatories) and the political will can be mustered.

    6. The greatest obstacle to the realization of such a process is the current tribal Jewish hegemony over the Western democracies and their allies in the Arab world. But there is nothing absolute about this power. Many Jews, not to mention others, are beginning to understand the fate that will inevitably befall them if they don’t join the struggle against Zionism and its lackeys. The historical pattern is perfectly clear.

    6. Finally, it goes without saying that Palestine would be returned to its rightful owners.

      Heh Daniel, it makes me feel like that too. It is a shame that we elect a bunch of enablers to ethnic cleansing and land grabs, and that these despicable Americans, who pretend they care for us, are really like cheap puppets, being jerked around by an alien rogue state. They beg and ask “how high” when the mothership says jump for zionism. They NEVER agree on anything to benefit the American people, but notice how agreeable they are when it comes to pleasing those zionists? Heck they even join hands and sing “Kumbaya” for them.

        So sad Annie, these are the homes of people, just like us, who built it with hope and dreams, and living there with their families as long as they wished. This is inhumane, this is worse than collective punishment. This is abusing your powers over occupied people and blowing their homes up, and worse blowing them with it too.
        If any people deserves some justice for these horrible crimes committed against them, it would be the Palestinians. I hope those who point their weapons and unleash it on these helpless people, get their just desserts soon, in much larger portions.

        Wanton destruction of a whole neighborhood.
        Most definitely a war crime caught on camera.
        Wonder if the whole 60mins is available?

    Israeli tank fire hit the fuel depot of the Gaza Strip’s only power plant.

    How very, very brave…

    What a sick, sick, sick mentality.

    Never heard of these guys but they look like they are suffering in sympathy on twitter and facebook.
    what i have noticed is the birth of militant judaism in the diaspora.people are getting organized.the numbers are there and growing.what is happening in europe is a major factor.
    Israel has gone a long way in changing that mentality of victimhood that has been part of judaism for so long.
    The divide and conquer stratergy being played out by the arab lobby groups in america has had a free pass from hussein obama and company but the wheel turns and the next round is going to be interesting.

    US Cinema Reflects Barbarians Of The Good–Where’s The Film On #Gaza? http://sensesofcinema.com/2009/feature-articles/the-deep-morals-of-inglourious-basterds/

    How many Hollywood films have reflected Jewish revenge or masturbation scenes with Shikas? How many US TV comedies and sit coms have done the same? What’s the alternative? Sexy rednecks girls doing stuff with stupid redneck boys? Pretty clear who writes the scripts, eh? Big Bang! Money roles in.

    What really tears me up is the photos of all of the children and young adults – such beauty, laughter, hope and love shining in their beautiful open faces. No guile there, nothing hidden, no anxiety, no hatred and displaying such dignity in the hateful, monstrous face of occupation and death. God bless the people of Gaza and Palestinians everywhere.
