I’LL BE AWAY FOR A FEW DAYS

I’m going away for a bit.

There’s a trip I’m going on.

I’m going back home for a few days.

I won’t be able to post as usual. I won’t be able to reblog either … my phone and my iPad don’t have the ‘reblog button’ anymore.

Don’t know why!

Anyway, I will be looking in every so often to check up on my dear friends.

I will miss all of you.

Maria

On the morning of Wednesday, September 20, 2017, Hurricane María struck Puerto Rico, devastating the island and plunging all of its 3.4 million residents into a desperate humanitarian crisis.

I will never forget.

I’m going to see family and friends.

I want to drive around and see what is happening 8 months after this disaster.

RedLineBJason deCaires Taylor (born 12 August 1974 in Dover) is a British sculptor and creator of the world’s first underwater sculpture park – the Molinere Underwater Sculpture Park – and underwater museum.

He is best known for installing site-specific underwater sculptures which develop into artificial coral reefs integrating his skills as a sculptor, marine conservationist, underwater photographer and scuba diving instructor.

His works in Grenada have been listed among the Top 25 Wonders of the World by National Geographic. His most ambitious projects to date are the creation of the world’s largest underwater sculpture museum, the Cancún Underwater Museum, situated off the coast between Cancún and Isla Mujeres, Mexico and Ocean Atlas (2014), a 5-metre tall, 60-ton sculpture off the Bahamas. Taylor is currently based on the island of Lanzarote, Spain, working on a major new underwater museum for the Atlantic Ocean.

RedLineBJason deCaires Taylor’s New Sculpture “Nest” Unveiled
By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, July 31, 2017

The new work by underwater sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor – called “Nest” – has been completed with the installation of the final figures.

The sculptor describes the work thus: “‘Nest’ creates a new habitat space, a nucleus of protection and support. The circular formation evokes time and continuum, an echo of the circle of life.”

Now open to the public, the new sculpture, which is comprised of 48 life-size human figures, is situated near the island of Gili Meno, one of the three Gili Islands found between Bali and Lombok.

It’s the first time that Taylor has situated a work in the Asia region; his sprawling masterpiece, “Museo Atlántico,” is located off the Spanish island of Lanzarote.

Commissioned by the luxury resort developer BASK, the new sculpture sits in just 13 feet of water, so it’s possible for snorkelers as well as divers to visit the installation.

~The Creation of Israel~
The discovery of the Holocaust created great sympathy for the Jews. Many western countries wanted to create a homeland where they could settle and feel safe. The problem was that there were hundreds of thousands of Arabs living in Palestine and they naturally believed that the land was theirs by right.

They had lived there for more than a thousand years.

Jews had been arriving in the area since the 1890’s. Jews believed that Palestine was the ‘Promised Land’ of the Old Testament and that therefore they had a right to settle there.  Friction had soon developed between them and the Arabs.

In the 1930’s there had been a civil war between the two groups.

The British had tried to solve the problem but in the end only managed to make the situation more difficult. They appeared to make promises to both sides, which they could obviously not keep. Eventually they had been forced to give up.

In 1947 the United Nations was faced with having to come up with a solution.

The United Nations recommended dividing Palestine between Arabs and Jews

The plan was published in November 1947.

The Arabs immediately rejected partition, because they believed that Palestine was theirs by right. The Plan also appeared to favor the Jews. Although the population of Palestine was about 60% Arab, the Jews received more than half of the land and the more fertile areas as well.

The Arabs were allotted areas that were mostly desert.

As the British withdrew, the Palestinians fought to gain control of every town. On the other side, Israeli terrorist gangs, the ‘Stern’ and the ‘Irgun’, forced Arabs to leave their homes and flee for their lives. Those who stayed, or tried to fight, were killed, men, women and children.

This was a major factor in the bitter hatred that developed between Jews and Arabs.

Nevertheless, the United Nations plan was approved and preparations began for the new state of Israel

Flags

For their part, the Israelis announced that Israel would be a secular state, that meant that religion would have no influence, and that all people living within its borders would have the full rights of citizenship. In other words, although Israel was being created as a homeland for Jews, Arabs would qualify as citizens and be able to vote and stand for the Knesset, the Israeli parliament. This did not satisfy many Arabs. They did not want to live in Israel.

They wanted a state of their own.

On 14 May 1948, the Israeli Prime Minister, David Ben Gurion, announced the creation of the state of Israel. There was great rejoicing in Tel Aviv but the Arab governments in the surrounding countries objected to the new state and tried to destroy it. On 15 May 1948 the armies of Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Transjordan, Saudi Arabia and Egypt attacked Israel.

Why are Palestinians protesting in Gaza?

It’s referred to as the largest open air prison on the planet.

If you were in this situation, would you not at least protest?

Something to Think About …. “🤔 It’s Empathy, It’s Human 🤔 …. “!!


~EMPATHY~

PUTTING MYSELF IN THEIR SHOES

the action of understanding, being aware of, being sensitive to and vicariously experiencing the feelings, thoughts and experience of another of either the past or present without having the feelings, thoughts, and experience fully communicated in an objectively explicit manner.

Also : the capacity for this.

Grotesque Spectacle in Jerusalem

The complicit first daughter and her shady husband are partying in Jerusalem while Palestinian people are being slaughtered

The juxtaposition of images of dead and wounded Palestinians and Ivanka Drumpf smiling in Jerusalem like a Zionist Marie Antoinette tell us a lot about America’s relationship to Israel right now

I can’t wrap my mind around this.

There’s no worse blind person than one blind person who doesn’t want to see. 

I can only see misery, self defense, preservation from the Palestinians and total disregard from the state of Israel. Israel has military grade weapons, has been encroaching in Palestine land, suffocating the Palestine nations in ways that I can only imagine.

In the meantime, the Drumpfs, the Netanyahus, the powerful, hawkish Jews and Zionist evangelicals take advantage of the lack of morals, values, policies and strategy of the

Fool on the Hill“.

Opinion Columnist
May 14, 2018
On Monday, May 14, Ivanka Drumpf, Jared Kushner and other leading lights of the Trumpist right gathered in Israel to celebrate the relocation of the American Embassy to Jerusalem, a gesture widely seen as a slap in the face to Palestinians who envision East Jerusalem as their future capital.

The event was grotesque

It was a consummation of the cynical alliance between hawkish Jews and Zionist evangelicals who believe that the return of Jews to Israel will usher in the apocalypse and the return of Christ, after which Jews who don’t convert will burn forever.

This spectacle, geared toward Drumpf’s Christian American base, coincided with a massacre about 40 miles away. Since March 30, there have been mass protests at the fence separating Gaza and Israel.

Gazans, facing an escalating humanitarian crisis due in large part to an Israeli blockade, are demanding the right to return to homes in Israel that their families were forced from at Israel’s founding.

TALK ABOUT DAVID AND GOLIATH

The demonstrators have been mostly but not entirely peaceful; Gazans have thrown rocks at Israeli soldiers and tried to fly flaming kites into Israel.

The Israeli military has responded with live gunfire as well as rubber bullets and tear gas. In clashes on Monday, at least 58 Palestinians were killed and thousands wounded, according to the Gaza Health Ministry.
