A LETTER FROM PALESTINE

Carlos Latuff

Dear Friends;
Just want to wish all of you the best Greetings of the season. Last week our Jewish brothers celebrated the Festival of Lights, this week we saw our Christian brothers celebrate their Christmas. On Saturday night the Feast of the Sacrifice will begin for our Muslim brothers.
A time of love for all of us, a time to be united with families and loved ones. But this is not the case in the Occupied Territories. Thousands of families are still divided, chaos runs rampant in our streets, our children are dying….
With Israels ‘blessing, a large quantity of arms and ammunition were just sent thought the border crossing… the move was made ‘in a effort to bolster Fatah affiliated groups’….
Is this what Olmert sees as a peace initiative? Israel won’t fire at Palestinians but will aid Palestinians to do it themselves??
We are people, not cattle. Yes, we were herded into enclosed areas, hidden behind walls for the world not to see our suffering… but the fact remains, WE ARE PEOPLE. we have aspirations, hopes and dreams. The nightmares must be eliminated and we must be allowed to survive. Is this asking too much from one human being to another?
All I ask of you is not to remain silent…. protest in every way you can. Keep our struggle alive and in the limelight… PLEASE.
Bless you all and the best of the Holiday Wishes.

    Good to see you Henry. Thanks for the comment.
    As to the ‘One Country Plan’,It won’t work! There are two nations tht must have two countries.
    Thanks for linking me, I’ll do the same.

    Well – DP – I don’t know what you mean by “interesting comment,” but I’ll have to assume the best. If you read Ressentiment you know that I specialize in the irreverant. Not that you deserve it here, but court jester always makes fun of the king. It’s what we do. šŸ˜€
