LAND CONFISCATION 13Nov11 November 13, 2011
Back to the (ab)normal and unpredictable situation here in Palestine.Â I give talks to visiting international delegations, we deal with problems, we organize activities, we attend events including various forms of non-violent resistance, I teach students, I do clinical service, I write on my upcoming books, eat great food, have wonderful conversations etc.Â I keep up with the news of my friends who were on the boats to Gaza. The Canadian abductees arrived home. Some Irish abductees were re-imprisoned. Israeli armed guards prevented them boarding planes at the last minute (more at http://witnessgaza.com/).Â But the world is outraged and politicians while still attached to their failing positions, are feeling besieged by their own people.Â Delegations from Sweden, Ireland, the US, and many others pass through Palestine and then stay in touch via the internet learning and becoming even more active against the idiotic policies of mainstream Western politicians.Â Thousands of people are finally saying: we will not take it anymore.Â The Empire and its servants are pushing for a war on Iran now (after they pushed for an illegal war on Iran) but judging from average people reaction and the jitters in the stock market, there is no constituency for war.Â I do not think it will happen.Â Racism will lose anyway, with or without their racist wars.

U.S. renews financial aid to Palestinian Authority.Â Action comes after top AIPAC-supported congressional leaders drop their opposition. The Obama administration assured the occupied congress that this is in the national interest of the US and that “Israel does not abject” to renewal of this “security assistance.”
