* New Routes: Photo-stories from young people across Gaza
« on: May 05, 2013, 11:55:31 AM »
A collaborative project with young people across Gaza to create
photo-stories and hold exhibitions in Palestine and the UK.




by Martin Ruddock

This is not simply about getting young people in Gaza to take photos but enabling them to apply multiple layers of meaning to those photographs and thereby their surroundings.

New Routes is a photostory project that will explore the lives of young people across the Gaza Strip. This project will collaborate with young people and enable them to create stories of their everyday routes and endeavors.  In other contexts this type of approach has helped highlight undocumented issues, break stereotypes, and reveal new routes forward.

Through a series of workshops young people will generate their own themes, learn composition skills, and write narratives to accompany their photographs.  The project aims to work with six diverse groups each containing between ten and fifteen young people.  Results from the different workshops will be put together in an exhibition in Gaza and the UK.

I designed this project in response to a ‘knowledge transfer’ initiative launched by a group of Palestinians living in Southampton and civil society groups in Gaza. The creative process is punctuated with the exhibition and in subsequent dialogue generated by the photostories. 

A brilliant team of volunteers has already spent many hours advising, creating, and designing material for use in publicity and workshops.  The necessary permissions to access Gaza have been granted and we will arrive in June.  All that is now required are the funds for equipment and materials.

The Role of the United States in Israel



Posted: 21 May 2013 04:50 AM PDT

By Samir Abed-Rabbo: Zionism

Introduction:

Israeli apologists would like us to believe that Zionism, the political ideology guiding Israeli policies and practices since its establishment of Israel in Palestine in 1948, is God’s chosen national movement for the re-establishment and maintenance of a “Jewish homeland” in “biblical lands”. Moreover, they want us to accept that Zionism is Judaism and that present-day Israel is the Jewish “promised land”. As a religion, Judaism considers the return of Jews to Palestine before the coming of the Messiah a sacrilege.

God has never been involved in real estate transactions; neither has the Bible ever been considered a source of International Law governing relations between modern states nor a reliable source of human history or archeology. If the world were to be re­established according to the Bible, the United States, Europe and most modern states would not exist. Furthermore, there are no eyewitness accounts or scientific evidence linking current Israeli Jews to the ancient Hebrews. Some historians and archeologists even dispute that Jews ever had a significant presence in the area.
 
A Brief Analysis:

Israel was established by a European racist and settler colonial ideology through the use of carefully and deliberately fabricated myths. Unlike classical settler colonialism, Zionism and Zionists do not maintain an umbilical cord to a mother European country nor plans to exploit local natives and resources.  Zionism and Zionists argue for close cooperation with disposable surrogate superpower(s), complete control of resources, and the expulsion of the indigenous population, the Palestinians.  Zionism and Zionists claim that Palestine was desolate and the Palestinians never existed. The clear motive behind the myths is to justify the establishment of Israel in Palestine as a Jewish state and the gathering of Jews therein. Myths that are often repeated give ways to delusional mindset. Zionism and Zionists concluded that Palestine will become a home for the Jewish state regardless of the wishes of the Palestinians and in order to achieve this objective, the inhabitants will be ethnically cleansed. There are two main lies that the Zionists regurgitate: Palestine was desolate and there is no such a thing as Palestinians. Was Palestine desolate? Did the Palestinians exist in history?
