Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth.” So God created man in his own image.. And God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the air and over every living thing that moves upon the earth.

(Genesis 1:26–28).

You create the
earth and the sky
a billionth power of a billionth power of a billion: the infinity
And a the World magnitude of which is but a dust particle in that infinity
And the sun, air and water which breathe life into it
and the perfect harmony that life formed with your universe

Dinosaurs, gazelles, wolves and birds, insects and flowers who recited your name in everything they did
The magnificent coexistance with blue ocean, rain, river, mountain,
the deer that drank from that river and the beaver built dams on the side of that lake

British writer and photographer Stuart Littlewood talks to Angie Tibbs about his experience of Israel’s occupation in Gaza and the West Bank, and comments on how British and American collusion, under the auspices of the Jewish lobby, is helping to sustain the world’s most lawless, brutal and unjust occupation regime.

“Lawlessness must have painful consequences for the lawless, not their victims.” (Stuart Littlewood)

Stuart Littlewood is one of the most consistent and passionate writers on the continuing Israeli occupation of Palestine. His book, Radio Free Palestine, and his frequent articles, focus readers on the plight of the Palestinian people, on the occupiers who are responsible, and on the governments who support Israel’s slow-motion genocide and theft of an indigenous people’s homeland, culture and history. I spoke with him recently.

[Angie Tibbs] Has your active support for the Palestinian people always been a part of who you are or was there a defining moment which caused you to speak out?

[Stuart Littlewood] I’m new to this game. The Palestinians’ struggle for justice isn’t taught in school here and our politicians are afraid to discuss it, so the British people are kept in ignorance. (devamını oku…)

Communicating with Israelis may leave one bewildered. Even now when the Israeli Air Force is practicing murder in broad daylight of hundreds of civilians, elderly persons, women and children, the Israeli people manage to convince themselves that they are the real victims in this violent saga.

As a 10-year-old growing up in Johannesburg, I celebrated
Israel’s birth, 60 years ago. I unquestionably accepted
the dramatic accounts of so-called self-defensive actions
against Arab violence, to secure the Jewish state. The
type of indoctrination South African cartoonist Zapiro so
bitingly exposes in his work, raising the hackles of
scribes such as David Saks of the South African Jewish
Board of Deputies. When I became involved in our
liberation struggle, I became aware of the similarities
with the Palestinian cause in the dispossession of land
and birthright by expansionist settler occupation. I came
to see that the racial and colonial character of the two
conflicts provided greater comparisons than with any other
struggle. When Nelson Mandela stated that we know as South
Africans “that our freedom is incomplete without the
freedom of the Palestinians,” [1] he was not simply
talking to our Muslim community, who can be expected to
directly empathize, but to all South Africans precisely
because of our experience of racial and colonial
subjugation, and because we well understand the value of
international solidarity.

Türkçe versiyon

Pepsi Bottling Group management, answered my letter concerning “goster duygularini” (show your feelings) campaign conducted by the Turkish branch. As it can be seen, Pepsi apologizes for the offense and informs that the firm responsible for he campaign was fired. Thanks to all responsible folks who, recognizing the meaning and the power of participatory democracy, contributed to this end.

The letter:

Dear Mr. Yildirim:

Thank you very much for contacting us regarding our promotion in Turkey
and expressing your concerns. We appreciate the opportunity to clarify the situation.

As you may know, in Turkey Pepsi is conducting a promotion in which consumers are encouraged to submit photos of themselves making faces. The
pictures judged most “emotional” and entertaining will be published on a website.
Like any contest, there are quite a few rules and conditions. In fact we reviewed
and approved 25 such rules.

However, shortly after the
contest website was activated, the website agency added several more rules, including one relating to head scarves. That rule was never actually approved by Pepsi.

When we became aware of this rule, we responded immediately. Within
one hour of learning about the rule, we removed it from the website. Now
there are no rules or restrictions whatsoever relating to head scarves.
