في انتظار ترامب والفرص الضائعة

nadiaharhash

يقف المجتمع الفلسطيني علي شفا حفرة من نار لا يوجد من ينجيه منه , وبسذاجة ربما كونية في تاريخ المكون الفلسطيني ينتظر حلا من ترامب القادم لعقد صفقات وكأن المنطقة منتجع سياحي استكمالي لمشاريعه الخاصة .

نقف متفرجين كمن يقف في حواشي الافراح والاتراح معلقا متهكما ,لا فرحا ولا حزنا . لأننا فقدنا في ظل كل ما يجري جزءا مهما من كينونتنا تلك التي تضخ المشاعر في نفوسنا .

تتداخل كل الأمور والقضايا لدرجة أصبحت كلها سواسية. تقلص حجم الوطن الى بعض المطالبات التجارية لا ترقى حتى الى تسميتها بالاقتصادية , أصبحت فيها خطط نتانياهو السالفة لسلام اقتصادي اقرب الى الاعجاز العلمي.

نسخر من السعودية وميلانيا وايفانكا والكوميديا الشيطانية التي نقف امامها مستهزئين متهكمين ولكن بالنهاية موافقين . فالرهان السعودي والامريكي على خمولنا وغباءنا كشعوب رهان كاسب. فبالنهاية تقوم أمريكا بعقد صفقات أسلحة للسعودية لقتل العرب والمسلمين في اليمن وسورية والعراق وغيرها  من خلال التنظيمات الإرهابية التي لا تزال تنشؤها…

In Memory of Jean Carlos Jiménez-Joseph – IMM Print – Medium

Jean Carlos Jiménez-Joseph. Jean died at the age of 27 at the Stewart Detention Center, after 19 days in a form of solitary confinement. According to ICE’s Segregation Directive, immigrants should not be held in solitary confinement for more than 14 days. But as the Trump administration curtails the enforcement of ICE’s National Standards, we are bound to see more people fall victim to inhumane detention conditions.On the morning of Jean’s final day on this earth, a volunteer with El Refugio tried to visit him. The volunteer was denied the ability to visit him. That evening, Jean was found unconscious in his cell, and ICE reported the death to be self-inflicted.“This is absolutely shameful and heartbreaking,” said Christina Fialho, an attorney and the co-executive director of CIVIC. “Visitation is empowering, healing, and socially transformative. Receiving a visit while in immigration detention can make a huge difference for a human being who is isolated from the outside world. Our hearts go out to all who loved Jean.”

An Open Letter to Rev. Franklin Graham from a “Small Church” Pastor

Trinity's Portico

Dear Frank

Can I call you Frank? This is just pastor to pastor. Feel free to call me Peter. Anyway, I have to say I was flattered when I learned that your Decision America Tour took a detour off the beaten path to call upon us “small community churches.” We are nothing if not small. We seat 30-40 on a good Sunday. And we are a century old fixture of our small community. Most often we are overlooked and overshadowed by mega-churches and politically influential religious voices like your own. We don’t hold a candle to an auditorium filled with the music of a one hundred voice choir led by professional musicians. We probably will never be recognized in any nationally syndicated media. After all, we don’t do anything really “newsworthy.” We just preach the good news of Jesus Christ; love one another the best we can (which sometimes isn’t…

With DHS Position, Clarke Would Be the First ‘Patriot’ Leader to Hold a Federal Post | Southern Poverty Law Center

This would be a remarkable position for someone long affiliated with Richard Mack’s extremist Patriot organization, the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association, to hold. Among the core tenets of CSPOA dogma is the far-right “constitutionalist” belief that sheriffs represent the highest law of the land, and are capable of overturning or ignoring federal laws within their own jurisdictions. Moreover, Clarke’s history of incendiary remarks includes his advocacy of “a second American revolution.”

As the Russia story explodes, women’s rights continue to be rolled back | Jessica Valenti | World news | The Guardian If DNC caves on women’s rights, this 45 year Democrat is leaving the party!

it’s hard to think about anything outside of Trump and Russia these days, but while we’re all refreshing Twitter every two minutes, women’s rights are being rolled back across the country. At the end of June, four health clinics in Iowa will shut down because of legislation defunding Planned Parenthood. At the same time, Texas is seeking federal funding to do the same and the DNC chair is meeting with anti-choice groups in the spirit of doing away with a litmus test on women’s rights.When even those who are supposed to be on our side are willing to throw women’s autonomy and human rights under the bus, we’re in bad shape.So yes, watch the news obsessively and plan those impeachment parties. But don’t forget about what’s at stake in the meantime.

Comparisons to Watergate Are Not Far Off Point | La Prensa San Diego

This week, sources inside the FBI revealed that Director Comey wrote a detailed report after a February 14th meeting with Trump. During that meeting, Comey says Trump asked others in the Oval Office to leave, including Vice President Mike Pence and Attorney General Jeff Sessions. When they were alone, Comey reports that Trump asked him to drop the investigation of Michael Flynn’s interactions with Russians.That’s textbook obstruction of justice.
