Islamic Holiday, on burning Qurans and more
On behalf of the staff and board members of the
Palestinian Center for
Rapprochement Between People, we wish all Muslims around
the world "Eid Mubarak". And happy new year to our Jewish friends and
colleagues; many who suffered in challenging the Zionist project of ethnic
cleansing and destruction.
If you are in the Bethlehem area, join Al-Walaja village residents for the Eid prayer at the wall. Friday at noon Palestinian time. By praying on their land near the wall, the villagers hope to draw attention to attempt by the Israeli authorities to separate them from their lands with the land-theft and apartheid wall.
Thank you to those who made suggestions for improving the list "50 things to do for peace with justice". The updated version is on the website of the Palestine Justice Network. (BTW, please explore that nascent website and contact us at email@example.com to join this effort at networking)
Remarkable interview: Khaled Mesh'al lays out new Hamas policy direction. (Whether one agrees or disagrees with Hamas, it is a significant part of the Palestinian body politic and must be understood as a movement.)
Jon Stewart Comedy show takes on religious hatred. A Florida pastor plans to burn Korans(sic) on the anniversary of 9/11, and John Oliver reads from the Jewish manual.
Stop the Carve-up of Palestine!
Now is also the time for a new generation to join the existing parties, revitalize them and transform them into a tool of struggle rather than a degraded vehicle of capitulation and self-interest. If those with a clear vision are prominent in this move, they will be in a position to articulate the essential goals of a new leadership.
