International week of action against Israeli apartheid

Alert From the The Palestinian American Congress

Since the Israeli “redeployment” from Gaza on August 20, 2005, Israeli occupation troops killed 694 Palestinians and wounded four thousand and is literally starving the Gaza strip. Israel also took advantage of media preoccupation with midterm elections to commit new war crimes including large scale home demolitions and indiscriminate firing on peaceful demonstrators. : The atrocities of the last few days could intensify unless we focus attention on them and insist they be covered by the media and stopped immediately.

Palestinians have also called for an international week of action against apartheid, against the wall, and against the ghettoization of Palestine for November 9-16

Timely Reminders

"Those who crusade, not for God in themselves, but against the devil in others, never succeed in making the world better, but leave it either as it was, or sometimes perceptibly worse than what it was, before the crusade began. By thinking primarily of evil we tend, however excellent our intentions, to create occasions for evil to manifest itself."
-- Aldous Huxley

"The only war that matters is the war against the imagination. All others are subsumed by it."
-- Diane DiPrima, "Rant", from Pieces of a Song.

"It is difficult
to get the news from poems
yet men die miserably every day
for lack
of what is found there"
-- William Carlos Williams, "Asphodel, That Greeny Flower"
