" met many people who dedicated their lives to IP peace. Al Lilienthal, Elmer Berger come to mind. Its possible you and I will suffer the same lack of success. How to make lemonade is our challenge, not only for Israelis and Palestinians but all humankind"
Yes there are no Palestinians in the Palestinian struggle,
"Savvy and sophistication do not equate to kowtowing or surrender to a master"
"Savvy and sophistication"...prideful ok for some then? you really think you can mask your malice with claims of savoir faire and sophistication,
"They entail, especially with a worldwide audience"
The world has for a longtime supported Palestine, have you not noticed in your yankee fishbowl?
"being calculating, not being belligerent or blinded by anger…. trying to occupy the high ground and exposing the flaws for all to see."
The insults just flow freely now, because of your suffering?
"Yes, Kim has nuclear weapons but he’s brought Trump to the point of saying, “We fell in love”. That’s savvy, regardless of how matters play out. An example of the art of diplomacy"
He has an independent nuclear armed state allied with China "An example of the art of diplomacy" go back to "He"
"Your take on Trump seems set. I’m not so sure"
You are not sure about what?
" When it comes to his ego, everyone can get sacrificed. Having Netanyahu in a position he can’t say no has advantages"
"can't say no"? but Palestinians are blinded by anger?
"Instead, I see things have not gone well for them for a very long time and that is the heart of my concern. Not only for them but the region and the world. We see the dominant narrative, “Israel has the right to defend itself”, has undermined Palestinian fortunes, undermined the safe political ground we would like our politicians to move to. I believe a nsuccessful narrative could be the original PLO position, one Abbas has also mentioned, a secular democratic state with equality for all. This entails angling toward positive neighborly relations while knowing that is a great threat and will be attacked"
its like your just happy to write nonsense about what you believe? "not gone well for them" ?
you are a complete fraud and no friend of the victims of your vile sadistic and larcenous empire and its murderous local allies and your deranged oligarchs..waging war everywhere..on everyone..even the savvy and chic
We are not blinded by anything that happens to us, weird premise, it's like you're prejudiced or something.
"Do you believe that those in the wrong will necessarily have their days numbered?"
oh yeah absolutely ejran, you don't notice everything in midas hand turns to shit, you don't see the empire sucking on the worlds' tit and getting sicker and sicker, actually all our days are numbered, best to be ready to die, can happen any time, you don't see we already won, happy to live happy to die, this our sweet world, the conquerors will fuck themselves, its inherent and also funny, we already won erjan how can we be beaten its our world.
" when other people’s humanity become your destruction"
it's such a trap, easy to fall in to if you are inattentive and for conquerors and dominators there is no way out that doesn't involve transformation, people so cowardly when it comes to facing up, but it's too easy, too easy to just be human ( see and hear in respect of what we spoke about a while ago made me think about how it feels inside, any one of us, Keith had a way without artifice to just let the heart speak love and then followed it with an astonishing dub, it is inside everyone we will be ok it's just noise, starlight and star dub) like prayer, like life. from "tough gong encounter", you know them because they always die young..Hudson opens it up. "The day jobs out of sight...and the moon will be shining bright" it feeds right into the rituals I am now performing, emaho..
you can rest in the heart ease..it's easy.
"to be bought and pacified are Saudi Arabia and Egypt"
"Join them in their confrontation with Iran"
Egypt is in a confrontation with Iran? Over what? our regional ambitions?
Now would be a great time to reread Sunallah Ibrahim, author of "That Smell" (only the Creswell translation, the other one is poor)
"The Committee" 1981 and "Zaat" 1992, I find them encouraging, you may not, why would any one expect any of this, that Israel and America do, to end happily, when was any of it happy?
it is really weird that Americans can rarely distinguish between Arafat, Qadaffi, Assad, Hussien etc on the one hand and Sadat, Sisi, Mubarak, Hariri, MBS etc on the other, if you can't see what I mean, with immediate and vivid clarity, read Ibrahim, to enhance your enjoyment of Empire.
that was great, thanks, i miss mosques, peoples' private rooms just aren't the same, i spent a whole day in ahmad ibni tulun mosque, the day after saddam hussein was hung during eid, the prayers were furious and intense from people who knew they were going to face even greater hardships, the recitations beautiful, tumas dallal spoke very well, very calm now that the tide is slowly starting to turn, it will flood eventually.
"But whenever We removed the plague from them, giving them time to make good their
promise they would break their word. / And so We inflicted Our retribution on
them, and caused them to drown in the sea, because they had given the lie to Our messages
and had been heedless of them.
/ whereas unto the people who had been
deemed utterly low, We gave as their heritage the eastern and western parts of the land that
We had blessed.
And thy Sustainers' promise unto the children of Israel was fulfilled" the heights, 135-7ish
