A Tale of Two Cities II: Divided by the Wall in East Jerusalem

Terry Boulatta is an articulate guide and excellent Palestinian advocate. She offers a valuable human eyewitness and on-the-ground perspective on the injustices perpetrated against the indigenous Palestinans by the Israeli ideologues and extremist settlers. These fanatics want to further Judeocise the Holy Land and to encroach further upon Palestinian land. Filmed in July 2006 by two American activists.

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza, or the Occupied Palestinian Territories (oPt). These forty years have seen land sequestration and confiscation, illegal settlement building and the strangulation and ghettoisation of the Palestinian population by checkpoints, terminals and inhumane movement restrictions. Its time for apartheid to end.

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"
