Hopeful and some positive news, by Mazin Qumsiyeh

“To be hopeful in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. It is based on
the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty, but also of
compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness. What we choose to emphasize in
this complex history will determine our lives. If we see only the worst, it
destroys our capacity to do something. If we remember those times and
places – and there are so many – where people have behaved magnificently,
this gives us the energy to act, and at least the possibility of sending
this spinning top of a world in a different direction. And if we do act, in
however small a way, we don’t have to wait for some grand utopian future.
The future is an infinite succession of presents, and to live now as we
think human beings should live, in defiance of all that is bad around us,
is itself a marvelous victory.” Howard Zinn (You Can’t Be Neutral on a
Moving Train: A personal history of our times, p. 208)

the apartheid regime is not new)

Why is the real story of October 7 off-limits to western, but not Israeli,
media? Israeli army ‘ethics’ chief says crimes committed by soldiers
against Israel’s own civilians are ‘horrifying’. How is this not newsworthy
for British journalists?

[Israeli treatment of 13 thousand imprisned Palestinians is the worst in

Look at what the “most noble army” does to pass time…shooting at sheep!

Can higher education in Gaza survive Israel’s war on Hamas?

Revealed: An Israeli businessman’s post-genocide plan for Gaza

Unbelievable that congress is about to help Israel with more weapons to
commit its genocide. You can act by calling today:

Good news
+82 year-old survived 54 days under the rubble
+Tribunal rules in favor of professor dismissed because of Zionist pressure
+Gaza people are the most resilient, most courageous, most kind people I
met in my life (and I traveled to 48 countries on earth and met people from
ocer 140 countries in my five decades of activism).

+China is a manufacturing superpower

China is ‘world’s sole manufacturing superpower’, with 35% of global output

+People are forced to abandon pets because they’ve got no food for (even)
themselves. This veterinarian creates a pop up shelter.

Shouman was in hiding and without access to electronics (or food) for over
two weeks while IDF attacked the hospital and city of Khan Younis.
