1922 Palestine RR "Rapid and comfortable travelling facilities to ALL PARTS OF PALESTINE with connections to Egypt, Syria, TansJordania"

Totally trapped by Israel's racist laws and walls, it is not so easy for today's Palestinians to go any where, except into an endless and quite cruel exile.

Old travel poster from 1922 about Arab Palestine (Muslim, Christian & Jewish)

USA TEACH PEACE: "I'm neither Israeli or Palestinian. I am just a military veteran fed up with $10.5 million dollars of taxpayer money each day going to Israel to fund an apartheid regime."

 
"I'm neither Israeli or Palestinian. I am just a military veteran fed up with $10.5 million dollars of taxpayer money each day going to Israel to fund an apartheid regime. Further, I am disturbed by the fact that nearly every death of a US service member during the last 30 years is usually tied to an Israeli agenda (Google: The Greater Israel Project) and nothing to do with our national security and those deaths fly in the face of the oath we took when we swore in."

Think of Others poem by Mahmoud Darwish of Palestine

                    Think of Others
 

As you prepare your breakfast, think of others
(do not forget the pigeon’s food).
 

As you wage your wars, think of others
(do not forget those who seek peace).
 

As you pay your water bill, think of others
(those who are nursed by clouds).
 

As you return home, to your home, think of others
(do not forget the people of the camps).
 

As you sleep and count the stars, think of others
(those who have nowhere to sleep).
 

As you express yourself in metaphor, think of others
(those who have lost the right to speak).
 

As you think of others far away, think of yourself
(say: If only I were a candle in the dark). 


- Mahmoud Darwish



 "About Darwish’s work, the poet Naomi Shihab Nye has said, “Mahmoud Darwish is the Essential Breath of the Palestinian people, the eloquent witness of exile and belonging, exquisitely tuned singer of images that invoke, link, and shine a brilliant light into the world’s whole heart. What he speaks has been embraced by readers around the world—his in an utterly necessary voice, unforgettable once discovered.”" poets.org

"Why don’t they ever ask me, ‘Why is there an occupation?’ ”" Ahed Tamimi

“I don’t like how we are always being asked, ‘Why do you go to the streets, why do you protest, why do you resist?’ Why don’t they ever ask me, ‘Why is there an occupation?’ ”

Ahed Tamimi, the new face of Palestinian protest

"The activist on the occupation, balancing teenage life and politics — and the slap that landed her in prison Nine months ago, before the slap across an Israeli soldier’s cheek that changed her life, the world knew little of Ahed Tamimi. Now the 17-year-old is a cause célèbre, her full head of curly blonde hair recognisable on “Free Ahed” posters from Toronto to Tokyo. In the Palestinian territories, she is revered. In Israel, she is reviled. And at the Reef Cafe in Ramallah, she gets the best table in the house"... READ MORE https://www.ft.com/content/e10befa4-b75f-11e8-b3ef-799c8613f4a1
