My dad just came back from the cancer clinic and when my mom asked how it went he said “we’ll talk about it later”. He’s already at stage 4, I don’t think he can handle any more bad news.  He was extremely tense :(

Please keep him in your duaas 

Allah yeshfee ya Rabb. May Allah swt Ashafee give him full shifa’ and give him comfort, and reward him ya Rabb. Ameen.

Why was this Nazi able to kill?
The same government locks up Muslims and Arabs as part of a “war on terror” allowed a real terrorist to roam the streets for the better part of four decades, writes Joe Allen.
Apr. 17 2014
FRAZIER GLENN Miller, also known as “Frazier Glenn Cross,” a prominent neo-Nazi organizer for at least four decades, murdered three people in Overland Park, Kansas, on April 13.
Miller’s victims included 14-year-old Reat Griffin Underwood and his grandfather, Dr. William Lewis Corporon, who were shot and killed while sitting in a car at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City. Terry LaManno was shot at Village Shalom, a nearby assisted living center, where she was visiting her mother.
After his arrest near Village Shalom, Miller continued spewing racist and anti-Semitic filth while handcuffed in the back seat of a police car. KMBC, a local television station, recorded Miller screaming “Heil Hitler!”
In the 24 hours following Miller’s murder spree, his vile opinions and political history became widely known—thanks primarily to the efforts of the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which tracks hate groups.
But the big question that comes to mind after reading this mountain of material on Miller’s extensive involvement with violent Nazi groups is: Why was this man still roaming the streets?

It’s funny, the stereotypes we given. Lazy, as if we ain’t build an entire country on our backs. Thieves, as if we wasn’t stolen from our home. Hateful, as if we was the ones that murder for dark skin. Selfish, as if we took over another people’s country and claimed they land as our own. Funny, how them stereotypes so perfectly describe the ones who done doomed us all.

Genuine question:

How many articles published on anti occupation blogs does it take to assuage your white guilt*?

"Ismi Falasteen" (My Name is Palestine)
The olive tree: at once a symbol of peace throughout the Mediterranean and an embodiment of identity deeply entrenched in Palestinian culture. The olive tree is also the foundation for the economic activity and development in Palestine. Planting an olive tree, therefore, is both expressing a desire for peace and also a desire to protect lands from dispossession and ruin.

The scattered pockets of color which compose this mural are but a symbol of a culture, an identity, which is itself disjointed and in fragments. In contrast, the phrase ‘My name is Palestine’ affirms the existence of this identity. Naming is one manner through which to assert the presence of a people, a history, and a culture. High-res

“The desire to go home that is a desire to be whole, to know where you are, to be the point of intersection of all the lines drawn through all the stars, to be the constellation-maker and the center of the world, that center called love. To awaken from sleep, to rest from awakening, to tame the animal, to let the soul go wild, to shelter in darkness and blaze with light, to cease to speak and be perfectly understood.” 
― Rebecca Solnit 

against-acquiescence:

On 9th April 1948, exactly 66 years ago, the Zionist terrorist groups Irgun and Stern Gang invaded the Arab village of Deir Yassin. The militia forces entered the village firing upon the homes of unsuspecting villagers who thought they would be safe because Deir Yassin had entered a non-aggression…

redphilistine:

The Deir Yassin Massacre occurred before the zionists declared a Jewish state in occupied Palestine. Those “cultural” or “post-“zionists who try to avoid blame by saying it’s the state that’s at fault cannot be allowed to forget this. Zionism at its very core is a racist, violent, and genocidal movement. There is no amount of reclamation or reform that can change that.

Sitti Aziza, Allah yer7amha outside her home in Deir Yassin, Palestine (1985)
My great-grandmother, Aziza Radwan, was a survivor of the Deir Yassin massacre that took place 66 years ago today. At the time of the massacre, she was at the village bakery as she was every morning at dawn. My grandmother was 10 years old at the time of the massacre. She recounts the details of that day often. 
“When we reunited with my mother three days after the massacre, she told us about how the Zionists kept her and other women prisoner in the bakery, proudly waiving around large daggers wet with the blood of others,” she describes.
“They shot the baker and his son, [Hussein and Abdel Raouf Al-Sharif from Hebron],  and threw them both in the oven, as a warning to the women.” 
My grandmother recounts her mother’s haunting words. 
 ‘If you scream, I will kill you with this knife that has killed many before you.”  
The harrowing images of that day remain seared into memory. The legacy of steadfastness and patient endurance will remain alive in the flames of the struggle of the Palestinian people worldwide - in our homeland, in the diaspora, and everywhere the oppressed rise up and resist.
The old will die, but the young will never forget.
