Notes and tidbits posted on FB and Twitter. Part 162

Note: I take notes of books I read and comment on events and edit sentences that fit my style. I pa 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.

Since 2,000, Israel killed 2027 Palestinian children.

The new Palestinian National Council will revisit all the agreements and deals that Israel failed to carry out, after Trump pronouncement on Jerusalem.

The UN voted on 84 Palestinian resolutions that have never been executed. The US has the highest number of vetoes and 43 of them vetoes were related to Palestinian rights.

I’m tired of Petanque players (boules) who want to corner you as “pointeur” in order to enjoy the “privilege” of “tireurs”. They are the worst players: can do neither task.

The excellent “tireur” in Petanque is who mastered for years the task of “pointer”. He steps in to point instead of regurgitating the beginners’ cliche’: “In this game, we must have a pointeur, a milieu and a tireur”. Desist lying to yourself and train to control your body parts movements

Frankly, I feel lucky that I lived long enough in this century to realize that books of females authors are far more interesting than their gender’s counterparts

Chez nous, on est garcon ou fille. Des codes differents regissent les deux genres. Les termes “garcon manque'” ou “fille manquee'” n’existent pas pour devenir cliche’.

Et moi, la fille qu’on expectait de naitre garcon, je me revais  adulte comme le voisin qui fumait, le torse nu, sur le balcon dans l’indifference generale.

Je fesais le pitre et sautais entre les jambes des adolescentes femelles. Ma soeur ainee’ me chuchotas en Francais: ” Franchement, on dirait que tu es Lesbienne“. Je ne savais pas ce que ce mot signifiait, mais il tomba en moi comme une goutte d’encre noire dans un verre d’eau.

Est-ce qu’etre une lesbienne veut dire avoir l’energie grisante et la gaiete’ espiegle  quand je suis entre les femelles adolescentes, et que cette sensation disparait quand je retourne jouer avec les garcons?

Can’t become secular without working actively on a secular community. Need to avoid the claim that secularism is basically an internal individual spiritual condition, a permanent discipline, an individual asceticism that refuses the domination of abstract concepts and belief-systems on the reality of life and the true needs and wants of the common people.

Citizens needs to be educated how to differentiate among abstract concepts that cannot be demonstrated, concepts that can be measured and experimented with, concept that can be made operational to be measured, evaluated and tested (such as mental and emotional abilities…), concepts that require tolerance, and concepts that we should never tolerate under any excuse.
