Notes and tidbits posted on FB and Twitter. Part 152

Note: I take notes of books I read and comment on events and edit sentences that fit my style. I pay attention to researched documentaries and serious links I receive. The page is long and growing like crazy, and the sections I post contains a month-old events that are worth refreshing your memory.

On raconte ses Noels? J’etais en pension (boarding school) durant 6 ans. Mes parents venaient tous les 2 etes. Nos Noels, mon frere et soeur, n’etaient pas celebre’ en famille, mais avec les etudiants que leurs parents ne pouvaient pas les recuperer. Je  me souvient d’un Noel ou je coupais and gluais des cartons pour construire des mainsons dans une grande sale d’etude, presque vide. Un cadeau miserable nous etait offert. C’est tout. Un autre Noel on fut inviter avec mon frere a une maison d’une cousine (Nadia 3abboud Toubiyya) qui travaillait a l’ecole. C’etait une soire’ simple, chalereuse et memorable, beaucoup plus memorable que tous les autres Noels qui suivirent.

In 1946, the Anglo-American Committee of Inquiry concluded that the demand for a “Jewish State” was Not part of the obligations of the Balfour Declaration or the British Mandate.

Even in the First Zionist Congress in Basel in 1897, when Zionists sought to “establish a home for the Jewish people”, there was no reference of a “Jewish State”.

If the US wants Iran to withdraw its military presence in Syria, it better plans to withdraw and close all its bases in North Syria. For the time being, US has to close its bases by the Syria/Iraq borders (no need for any buffer zone there)

In 1900 lived in historical Palestine 800,000 of its 840,000 inhabitants and a few thousands Jews lived in a few colonies. Most of the Palestinians were driven off their land through wars, terror tactics, violent eviction or fear.

Remember that in 1948, UN resolution 198 included the Right of Return of the Palestinians to their homeland and the 1947 resolution divided Palestine into 2 States with definite boundaries.

It is very easy to cherry-pick quotes from scriptures of all religions that permit or enjoin violent acts against other people. This is the danger of believing “every word and sentences” in religious books that were fabricated piece-meal during decades and centuries to fit the power-to-be interests.

Je patiente dans l’attente de grands changements? Comme s’enfoncer plus profondement dans une routine futile and sans issue?

Pour Franco, je constituais la preuve de son omnipotence a me transformer: je lui permettais de demontrer qu’il savait etre un homme comme il se doit, et aussi etre la femme qu’il aurait voulu etre.

Les evenements de changements arrivent par vagues. Ils sont plus frequent et performants pendant les periodes de development econmiques, qu’on appelle “periodes instables“.

Unstable periods? It means changes are the results of economic transformation

Is it this Only reality of death that is rendering moments of fulgurant epiphany possible? We try hard to demonstrate we are smart or nonchalant in our periods of depressive moods

Nous etions deux adultes raisonables: on pense qu’on peut discuter et expliquer pour affronter nos divergences? Mon oeil. Seuls, les enfants savent resoudre leurs problems: le present a plus de valeur a tout moment.
