|NCN World Poet Tree: ugly sometimes|
12 comments10 Nov 2007 @ 10:21 by jazzolog : Yeah
It is so good to know you...and feel this reach across the world to a common understanding, one by one, a poem at a time. Ultimately only the poets remain to tell the tale. This poem slipped away from me, while my eyes were full of tears, and made its way to a great pile of email people I know---without even asking permission.

A fisher's boat chased the water into the coveted hills,
Both banks were covered in peach blossom at the ancient river crossing.
Israel crushes Semite hearts
In a mortar and pestle
Made of Zionist stone
Found in the heart
"Under the influence of politicians, masses of people tend to ascribe the responsibility for wars to those who wield power at any given time. In World War I it was the munitions industrialists; in World War II it was the psychopathic generals who were said to be guilty. This is passing the buck.
The responsibility for wars falls solely upon the shoulders of these same masses of people, for they have all the necessary means to avert war in their own hands. In part by their apathy, in part by their passivity, and in part actively, these same masses of people make possible the catastrophes under which they themselves suffer more than anyone else. To stress this guilt on the part of the masses of people, to hold them solely responsible, means to take them seriously. On the other hand, to commiserate masses of people as victims, means to treat them as small, helpless children. The former is the attitude held by genuine freedom fighters; the latter that attitude held by power-thirsty politicians." : Wilhelm Reich, The Mass Psychology of Fascism

paint with words, Judih. Takes my breath as I absorb the sounds and flashes and colors that aren't there...or are they?

Why Israel Should Begin Talking With Hamas
By Yvonne Ridley
Hamas is dismissed as a "terrorist group sworn to Israel's destruction" and one that "refuses to recognise Israel and wants to fight not talk". The truth is that Israel is bent on Palestine's destruction.
"And before any of you continue to cite terrorism as a counter argument for not sitting down and talking to Hamas it might be worth remembering that the first aircraft hijacking was carried out by Israel in 1954 against a Syrian civilian airliner.
"Grenades in cafes were first used by Zionists against Palestinians in Jerusalem on 17 March 1937.
"Delayed-action, electrically timed mines in crowded marketplaces were first used by Zionists against Palestinians in Haifa on 6 July 1938.
"Blowing up a ship with its civilian passengers still on board was first carried out by Zionists in Haifa on 25 November 1940. The Zionists did not hesitate to blow up their own people in protest at the British policy of restricting Jewish immigration to Palestine. The ship, Patria, was carrying 1,700 Jewish immigrants.
"Blowing up of government offices with their civilian employees and visitors was first carried out by the Zionists against the British in Jerusalem on 22 July 1946. The toll was 91 Britons killed and 46 wounded in the King David Hotel. Menachim Begin, who masterminded and carried out the attack and later became Israeli prime minister, admitted that the massacre was coordinated with and carried out under the instruction of the Haganah.
"Letter bombs sent to politicians was first used by the Zionists against Britain when 20 letter bombs were sent from Italy to London between 4 and 6 June 1947.
"I could go on – but I won’t.
"Israel really needs to sit down and talk with Hamas … if for nothing more than to secure its own long term future."

point of view, I know Vaxen is absolutely right. From HUMAN point of view Judih is expressing HUMAN suffering...-just plain human where ever when ever in time & space it has been / is.
I've been listening to old Finnish Songs this morning and No people -I'm certain of that! ....can express the SORROW humans have forced upon each other the way Finnish People do!... -except for Judih- (are sure Judih, you're not "Finnish"???hehhehe.... )
All through the Ages, we've done so - when we ALL could have had and lived the Paradise-On -Earth-Life ... every single one of us, through out Human existence on this Emerald Planet!!! ... And what did we choose; this group this time, that group that time... but always Some One, making sure suffering remained intact -as the "Spice of Life"?!
ADVERSITY/Adversary; SATAN/A (in Old Aramaic)-or as Judih says: "Ugly sometimes" -- for WHAT GOOD??? is MY question.
Now, Vaxen & Judih, tell me the truth: I've read in so many places that the (original(?) ) definition for the WORD "Israel" is: "Struggle"; that would make the Classic statement "The Children of Israel" to mean "The Children of Struggle" -which indeed would make sense and be Cosmically accurate and implying ANY (group of ) Humans who are in that state of consciousness.
There IS this aspect to ALL life on Earth; what we as groups or all collectively allow to be the truth for ALL Living things on Earth.
We have ALL been victims, we ALL ARE each other's as well as our own victims -and we have forced ALL of Life-forms on Earth to be/come OUR victims. To claim otherwise is selfish & short sighted. But Humans do NOT need to CONTINUE to be its own victims/ victims to other humans, which eventually would give the right to Life back to ALL Living things on Planet Earth!
Rising in vibrations to higher/finer "Kingdoms" up and away from this collective Dead-Beat-consciousness (; the "Kingdom of Struggle > Death"), seems to me is & has only been happening- one person at the time from which ever original group they came; doesn't matter at all, since the Laws of PHYSICS are immutable & impersonal -as any (other) cosmic Law (or Love, for that matter). Only the Critical Mass can -eventually- speed up that process of Cosmic Physics.
Humanity sure has made Life UGLY SOMETIMES for itself!)

The pressure for war is mounting. The people are opposed to it, but the Administration seems hell-bent on its way to war. Most of the Jewish interests in the country are behind war.I shall
