Finally a teensy weensy step in the right direction for Palestine: U.N. Calls Palestine a State.

Of course our great countries of Canada, USA, and 7 others voted against. Canadians never miss a chance to brown nose USA international policies. sigh.

The Casablanca Call for Democracy and Human Rights

The Casablanca Call for Democracy and Human Rights

We, the signatories to this call, as politicians, intellectuals and civil society advocates, believe that the achievement of democracy and the embodiment of human rights in the Arab world is an absolute necessity and requires a broader engagement of all citizens and political and social forces. We observe, with great concern, the dramatic and alarming backsliding of political reforms in the Arab world, due to several structural obstacles since the beginning of the new century. We hereby appeal to all parties concerned with the future of democracy - governments, civil society institutions, political organizations, trade unions, and the media - in the belief that the achievement of real and effective reforms is the responsibility of all parties.

Dear TNT666,

I have to agree with you on the religion question. But still Zionism instilled a tribalism. Religious or not, there was, for some, a strong sense of ethnic superiority and entitlement in the Zionist movement for settlements in Palestine.
There were Zionists, not all, but some leaders of the movement that felt ideologically entitled to all of Palestine and wanted all the Arabs expelled. For example, Vladimir (Ze've) Jabotinsky who said openly that the Arabs will have to be forced from their land. For him at least, there was no pretense of "a land without a people for a people without a land."
Like with the English idea of manifest destiny, there has always been peoples who regarded themselves as the chosen people. I've read history revealing that even the Han Chinese took this attitude.

zealous nationalism marries to religion

Except that the original zionists were atheists and Kibbutzers were atheist. In the case of Israel, the marriage between nationalism and religion is actually quite recent.

People need to see the disproportionate use of force and violence pushed hard on Palestinians by the right wing Israeli government.

I think the religious humanist Rabbi Hillel would be ashamed of this raw
nationalism and oppression. What Israel is doing to the Palestinians I don't think is representative of Judiasm which has a long (but modern) history of compassion and rational thinking in Europe. But, I'm a secular Humanist, and I could be wrong.
I wouldn't have enough fingers to count all the Jewish Temples, Synagogues, and schools that bear his name in Los Angeles County, California.

"That which is hateful to you, do not do to your fellow. That is the whole Torah; the rest is the explanation; go and learn."
-- Hillel the Elder

When zealous nationalism marries to religion the results are usually barbaric.

Dear Al-Kadim,

Thank you for posting the link to the trailor / video "Precious Life".
Compassion is trans national. I hope it comes to Los Angeles.

Very moving.
