Amira versus Israel

Amira Alquerem lost her family during the 22-day Israeli war on Gaza at the turn of the year. On August 31st, this brave 15 year-old girl from Gaza made history by filing a law suit against Israel at the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague. It accuses Israel of homicide against members of her family, war crimes and crimes against humanity (h/t Australians for Palestine).

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"
