Tears Today

  Entering my 73 rd birthday I feel pain Deep Pain My Body is Hurting My Spirit is scarred Perhaps even Bleeding Hoping for a Respite of Minutes – at least Feelings and Though Abound “I Deserve It” If, If, If Only I will not say to you While it isn’t easy I can’t also Discard the Feelings and Thoughts Squeezing outward and Inward Writing in these moments Helps me Relax Being in the Pain Has Meaning Can’t bring Accountability but it helps in the Moment Thinking of my Father His Body – shrinking Losing – his struggle Nearly 60 Years ago Only Age 46 and I Lucky Having the Opportunities He Never Had Can I Regain The Flame or the Flicker of the Flame Of my Heart’s Inner Core Had been growing Seemingly Bountifully Anger, Fear, Trembling My Body Reacts and I React To it with Tears Not of Rage Dripping Slowly Being in Sad Contemplation Being Young(er) Twas – Painful Had been seemingly Free

Justice for Some: Noura Erakat - a Great Book!

Image
Noura Erakat’s: Justice for Some:   Law and the Question of Palestine is an incredibly well written complement to Rashid Khalidi’s The Hundred Years War on Palestine: A History of Settler Colonialism and Resistance, 1917-2017 ( https://www.georgemarx.org/2024/02/the-hundred-years-war-rashid-khalidi.html + Tareq Baconi’s Hamas Contained: The Rise and Pacification of Palestinian Resistance ( https://www.georgemarx.org/2024/02/hamas-contained-tareq-baconis-excellent.html ) . The book is tremenously well researched!    It explains how Israel’s leadership has consistently over multiple decades used international law as a “weapon”.    The Holocaust is one bullet.   The (generally not reality based) Israeli (and other) Jews   fears of Palestinians are a second bullet.   Empathy for “poor” (sic) Israel is a third bullet.     Deeply woven in are the grossly racist narratives of the Palestinian People which Israel and its close “buddy”, the leadership of The United States (and many others

Daniel Marx - My Brother

My brother was always closer to our father, and I to our mother.   In the second grade (I think Mrs. Tully's class) he was caught reading a book at
