Easy Going: Since the implanting of Israel in 1948, there is No Palestinian Babies

Note: Re-edit of “Easy Going: There is no Palestinian baby (written in 1998 and published in 2008)”

Western media do Not cover the conditions of Palestinian babies, and yet, every Friday Palestinians are marching for their rights to Return Home. And Israeli snipers kill, amaim and handicap the young demonstrators.

Part I:

There is no Palestinian baby, no Palestinian child. There is no Palestinian youth.

They are “Arabs. Bad Arabs”.

Indonesia is mostly Muslims.  They invaded Timor, East and West.

Indonesia is not on the Blacklist.  It is a big nation.  Huge interests, stupid.

Bosnia has suffered immensely.  Peace missions finally in place.

War criminals?  La Hague tribunal is ready and waiting. We don’t meddle.  They are no Arabs.

Somalia is mostly Muslims.  At long last, compassion landed. Starvation ended.  Can’t talk bad: they are blacks.

Farrakhan is black and a Muslim.  He is no Arab, yet.

Bantustans in South Africa are no more “A la mode”: Freedom, Liberty, Equality, Human rights, please.

Bantustans in Palestine are essential, and created for all the above values.

Security and Safety of the Jews in Israel are at stake.

The Chosen people, remember?  Surrounded by Arabs, mind you!

The harem of the Sultan of Brunei is, technically, not one.

The girls are, mostly, professional consultants for tourism.

The bad harems are purely Arabs.  The Sultan of Brunei is no Arab.

The original American Indians were bad. Wish they were “Arabs”.  No clear conscience.

The Mexicans in Texas were bad too. Wish they were Arabs.  Conscience a tad clearer.

The Iraqi people are bad:  they call themselves Arabs, not our media.

The Iranians are not really that bad: They are too proud and Muslims all right, but no Arabs.

The Turks are a little better now:  Certainly not Europeans. Not as much as the Israelite.  Definitely no Arabs.

Part II:

We are a compassionate people.  We adopt babies from all over the World.

From Latvia, Estonia, Romania, even from Africa and Asia.

Arab babies are off limit; off the media.

There is no Arab baby.  No Arab child.

No Arab youth.  Just Arabs.  Bad.  Arabs.

The Jewish American rapist is socially dysfunctional.

The genuine rapist is Arab.

The Jewish American Baruch, of the Hebron massacre, is a madman.

A nerve snapped.

Arabs nerves can’t snap: made of stainless steel, tightly wired, for mischief.

The Maryland Jewish murderer chopped a man’s head.

He is a juvenile delinquent and a psychotic.

Arabs are born, adult criminals.

The peace makers with Israel are Egyptians, Jordanians, or Moroccans.

Their leaders are.

Who cares if they are dictators or absolute monarchs…

Who cares for the opinions of masses?

One of their leaders, the Egyptian dictator Sadat, was awarded

A joint Nobel peace laureate with the famous assassin Begin.

Menachem Begin, this prime minister and a staunch Jewish Jihadist, the precursor of Bin Laden and ISIS.

That is beside the point.

The enemies of Israel are Arabs, not their leaders. We have high hope in the people.

The criminals of the Oklahoma City bombing should have been Arabs.

Exceptions do occur.  Human nature you know.

Sirhan Sirhan assassinated Robert Kennedy.  He is a Palestinian of dual citizenship.

No motives:  Just bad Arabs attitude.

If push comes to shove, if a motive is needed,

Why, Sirhan is a hatemonger of the defenders of Civil Rights!

The most famous heart surgeon, Michael Debakey,

The poet of “The Prophet” and much more, Gebran Khalil Gebran,

The founder of St. Jude hospital for children with cancer, Danny Thomas,

Said they are Arabs from Lebanon.  The media beg to differ:

They are all, at best, of Lebanese descendants.

The bombers of the World Trade Tower are the Arabs.

The perpetrators of the Achilles Loro are the Arabs.

Literature Nobel prize winner, Nagib Mahfouz, says he is Arab.  Ask him.

The media insist that he is just Egyptian.

Those who shoot down commercial airplanes are Arabs.

Israel strikes “Arab refugee camps“.

Israel retaliates for Arab suicide bombings.

Israel lodges a cannon shell, inadvertently, on a UN compound in Qana of South Lebanon.

About three hundred Arabs died.  Give or take fifty Arabs.

Apology to the UN.

Arabs were massacred in the camps of Sabra and Shatila in Beirut.

Arabs killing Arabs.  Israel could care less.

How dare you blame Israel Defense Force!

They just happened to be there, completely cordoning off the Palestinian camps of civilians.

Freeing Lebanon by devastation, crimes against humanity and highway robberies.

There are no Arab babies.  There are no Arab youths.

Just Arabs.  Bad.  Arabs.

Definitely there are no Palestinians to bad mouth the people of Palestine.

Note:  Since I wrote this poem in 1998, many atrocities came alive. 

The attack on the Twin Towers, the preemptive wars on Afghanistan and Iraq, the Israeli genocide in the Palestinian camp of Jenine, the barbaric preemptive war on Lebanon in 2006 that lasted 33 days, the genocide war on Gaza, the embargo on Gaza, the building of the Wall of Shame in Israel…

Immigrant kids playing “game of crossing borders” every night

Note:

Sabine Choucair with her group of clowns David Lichtenstein Dustin J Allen Clowns Without Borders USA Jeroen Wils Clown Me In #diariesofaclown Naomi Shafer Nicole Gladstone have been touring the refugee camps all over the world, every camps they were allowed to visit, in Europe, Greece, Germany, Serbia, the Balkans, Italy and even Myanmar… This her her latest post.

Day 2 of performances in the Balkans. Already performed for 200 men on our first day and it was yet again a reminder that clowning is for all ages.

The show was a huge success, big laughs and a lot of happy faces enjoying the meaningful honest moments of interaction.

On that day, on the way out, met a little 3 year old kid who was amazed by the small tiniest bubbles, he had a big red blue(ish) scar on the left side of his face. I asked his Syrian mother where did this come from and she said “oh yesterday he fell when we were doing the *game*. 

Game is the name they give to their act of crossing the borders. They go to “game” every other night or so.
Today it all made sense.

After performing for the wildest kids ever, they gathered around us and one of the most talkative ones started playing the *game. She had such a strong character and was a brilliant storyteller. With all her power and loud voice she started acting their game of last night.

All kids running around the playground, following her – (their leader)- then boom she shouts …POLICE POLICE. All kids fall on the ground and become quiet, hiding.

Then off again running around then she shouts again POLICE POLICE … all kids to the ground, quiet! Then they get caught by the police.

She continues the story: “ then they put us in this closed van! No windows, very crazy roads. We started vomiting, they didn’t stop. They just kept driving and sent us back to this camp in Bosnia.

This is when all made sense to me. we had just performed for those kids who were between 4 and 12 years old and who last night and all previous nights for the past 5 months at least were caught by the police and sent back to the camps. Most of them come from Syria and Iraq. Some from Iran  (Algeria and Afghanistan).

“Your countries are safe now” they were told. “Go back to where u came from”.

I left with mixed feelings of extreme happiness and extreme sadness. We got to play with them, to learn the importance of play, of laughter and of resilience but also we got to learn once again about the cruelty of us humans.

 Angelina Jolie with daughter Shiloh on a Trip to Lebanon: Visiting refugee camps

Angelina Jolie is known for her giving heart and charitable work around the world, and now she is passing those traits on to her children.

The actress took her daughter Shiloh to Lebanon on Friday to spend time with a 12-year-old Syrian girl named Hala, whom Angelina met a year ago during a trip for the United Nations High Commissioner For Refugees.

“Shiloh is very aware that I hold refugee families in high regard and has been asking to come on missions and meet them for many years,” Angelina told People magazine.

“Shiloh had heard about Hala since my last visit to Lebanon, and has been wanting to meet her and her brothers and sisters.”

Hala instantly bonded with Shiloh. Hala has no parents and lives with her five siblings in a tented settlement in the Bekaa Valley.

“It was wonderful that they were able to meet, play together, and make friends,” Angelina said. “So many refugees are children. I’ve often heard them say that the most painful thing is not that they have lost their homes — it is that they have lost their friends.”

Shiloh and Hala got along so well that Shiloh is already looking forward to the next time they can see each other. “Upon leaving the family, Shiloh asked many questions,” Angelina continued. “It is of course hard to explain all of the harsh realities of war and displacement. She said she felt sad, but was happy that she went and is looking forward to the next visit.”

The next stop on Angelina and Shiloh’s trip is Turkey.

They are expected to arrive at Midyat Camp on Saturday to mark World Refugee Day with UNHCR High Commissioner António Guterres.

They are also expected to meet with Syrian and Iraqi refugees before joining Brad Pitt and the rest of the family for Father’s Day celebrations on Sunday.

In honor of the pair’s moving trip, look back at some of Angelina’s most inspiring moments, then reminisce about her and Brad’s relationship time line.

Angelina Jolie has taken her eldest daughter Shiloh on a visit to a camp for Syrian refugees in southeastern Turkey.

The Hollywood star, who serves as a Special Envoy of the United Nations High Commissioner for refugees, spoke of an ‘explosion of human suffering and displacement’ following her visit on Saturday, to mark World Refugee Day.

Jolie was accompanied on the visit by her eldest biological child, nine-year-old Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, who has become well-known for her androgynous style choices.

The 40-year-old actress said the world is living through an era of mass displacement, at a news conference in southeastern Turkey.

‘Never before have so many people been dispossessed or stripped of their human rights,’ Jolie said.

The U.N. refugee agency UNHCR said in a report last week that there were now more refugees than at any other time in history, with 59.5million people displaced from their homes worldwide. 

She said that the world has never before seen such mass displacement, at a news conference in southeastern Turkey, to mark World Refugee Day

‘There is an explosion of human suffering and displacement on a level that has never been seen before,’ Jolie said, warning that Syrians and Iraqis were running out of safe havens as neighbouring states reached the limit of their capacity.

‘It is hard to point to a single instance where, as an international community, we are decisively addressing the root causes of refugee flows,’ she said.

Jolie’s visit is the latest in a series of visits to Turkey as part of her work as the UNHCR’s special envoy to bring attention to the plight of refugees.

As numbers increase, many countries are scrambling to find ways to close their doors to the new arrivals.

Hungary recently announced plans to build a 13ft-high fence on the border with Serbia to stop the flow of migrants from Asia and Africa, and anti-immigrant sentiment has flared elsewhere in Europe.

Jolie spoke of the problem in general terms.

‘People are running out of places to run to,’ she said, emphasizing ‘the need to be open and tolerant to people… who may not be able to return home.’

Turkey now officially hosts the world’s largest refugee community – about 1.6million, according the latest U.N. figures.

‘We don’t know how many more will be coming,’ said Fuat Oktay, the chief of Turkey’s disaster and emergency agency. ‘There’s a huge risk that the number might increase.’

Jolie and U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees Antonio Guterres met Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan in the city of Midyat, some 30 miles from the Syrian border. She also attended a Ramadan fast-breaking dinner at a nearby camp and visited refugees.

This was Jolie’s third visit to Turkey since 2011, when the conflict in Syria began. The war has displaced more than 3 million refugees, or almost a fifth of the pre-war population.
