1 month anniversary

it has been one month now.

for one month, lebanon has had bombs drop on her.

in one month, i have aged 50 years.

for one month, i have cried everyday.

as the days unfold, the news is only getting worse. i find myself sinking... it has become so hard to write.

how many times can i keep repeating..."help, israel is targeting civilians... israel is blowing up the whole country... infrastructure has been hit...all the highways have been hit... roads and bridges, hit... food and wheat storages, gas and fuel supplies, communication towers, ports...all hit...hospitals shutting down because they have run out of fuel... the whole country is slowly being choked to death.

how many times can i keep repeating that the israeli army is hitting trucks carrying food and aid... they are hitting the red cross... the un...

how many times can i write that war crimes are being committed. that phosphorous bombs are being dropped on children...

how many times can i say that the oil spill has wrecked our coast and marine life... it has now spread to syria, by the way... even after the clean up, it will be 6 years before the environment can stabilize again.

how many times can i keep saying that the planes are getting louder.. the bombs are getting louder!

over 1 million displaced civilians now.
over 1,000 civilians killed.

how many times do i have to say that my country is being destroyed piece by piece. entire neighborhoods in my city no longer exist. entire families have disappeared. the south of lebanon is one fire.

for one month, i have seen lebanon brutalized. her citizens crushed under the rubble of their own homes.

you can not make peace through bombs.

in a week, if we do not get fuel into the country, the hospital that maya goes to will be shut down. she will not be able to get her chemotherapy. that is a few days from now.

a great friend sent me a song. it has become my mantra. every time i think i'm going to break down, panic, etc.. i put this song on full blast... and it somehow gets me to smile :) if there is no electricity, then i sing it out loud to myself.. and to my sister.. and brother.. and dogs.. and neighbors... hahaha...never thought i'd say this, but, long live happy music!!

here are some of the lyrics:

why must our children play in the streets,
broken hearts and faded dreams,
peace and love to everyone that you meet,
don't you worry, it could be so sweet,
just look to the rainbow, you will see
sun will shine till eternity,
i've got so much love in my heart,
no-one can tear it apart,

feel the love generation,
yeah, yeah, yeah,
feel the love generation,
c'mon c'mon c'mon c'mon yeah,

I can only echo this, I am in the UK too and my thoughts and prayers are with you. We had a big protest about the Israeli war of aggression on Saturday to which 100,000 people came. We are ashamed at the craven behaviour of our politicians. I wish I could say more. Your blog address has been published today in the UK newspaper The Independent. Ordinary people are outraged. We will keep working and protesting however long it takes. Toby

Dear Zena,

Relief that you have posted after checking for you these past two days - but no relief in sight to an end of this destruction. I wish you safe. I wish all to be safe. I know so little of the politics of this war; I can only feel the desperation of you and others who are so trapped. I look on google at the sites mentioned in the news both in Israel and Lebanon and cringe at what is being destroyed. My family and I continue to write letters - and pray that this will end.

You give us a way of saying 'Look, this is who is being bombed', you give us a way to fight for you.

Rasha, whoever you are, Zena is a million miles from self-centred. She is inspiring huge numbers of people with her passionate,loving and heartfelt writing, and she writes mostly of the devastation this war has brought to others, not herself. Please stop for a moment and put yourself in her place; she is living in the middle of one of the most stricken places in the world right now; her friend is ill with cancer and may lose access to her medication soon. Nobody in Lebanon knows right now whehter they'll live to see next week. It is very, very unkind to speak harshly to her so please think very hard before you post these kind of words to her again.

i want to express my solidarity with you! i write from nyc, not understanding anything anymore. this american backed bloodbath is beyond the beyond, and i cannot walk the streets of nyc, without feeling shame, disgust and total despair at what horror this country has wrought on you, on your people, on the innocent, on humans!! we are all human and we are all connected. i print photos from websites of broken babies, suffering elders, people, all MY mother, all my children.. OUR BROTHERS, our sisters... we are all connected my god!! and i print these images, because THEY ARE NO WHERE TO BE FOUND on american tv, in newspapers... (to protect fragile americans?) it is like a fantasy world here!! i don't think people even know what is going on!! it is as if we are in a time capsule here!! even though there are protests and i go and i yell yet,
it is not the majority, like london, like paris, like berlin. it is as if a hologram. i ask people all the time "are you not outraged" "are you not sickened, insulted by this government, that YOU PAY YOUR TAXES TO?" America is destroying another country!! endpoint. i think people are sleepwalking here, donwtrodden working people i believe ARE full of guilt, repress it, make believe, everything is "fine, just fine".. denial. and of course brainwashing. (note 9/11 film coming out right now.. this helps keep americans licking their own wounds... yet right now.. NOW, there is cold blooded SLAUGHTER going on in lebanona... you know this!! i think americans are in total denial and this unbelievable GENOCIDE they are funding, aiding and allowing and i want to say to you as someone who is born in this insane asylum here in america, that i listened to Nasrallah's speech last week, and felt it was a brilliant, human, revolutionary speech i have heard in ten years!! and bush and co. they represent the total
embodiment of horror, terror and pure evil and or course ignorance and stupidity.

I cry daily. I cry because i believe all peoples of the world should be crying with your people. i believe there was a time in this universe where we had the capacity to care/aide/help/ when something happened to our fellow human being...especially an injustice i believe we still have this place... but most people in america have this place stopped up with money, consumerism, the need to acquire more and more and more, to fill this "hole" ... when in actuality this "space" is meant to be for caring /compassion for our fellow human beings... to feel THERE PAIN, as it is OUR PAIN, i repeat WE ARE ALL CONNECTED..

i send you incredible beams of light, fierce and gentle, to you and all your people... may that light be a force field to protect you from the fires, and from the fury of this insanity.. may the light guard you and all near you...

i believe in the cause and effect/the coming around again. america is cursed now, BLACKENED with a huge CURSE, and the accountability will be on the souls of all americans. each of us here will suffer because of what america has inflicted on you and the total middle east...(this did NOT begin with 9/1 as most idiots americans think.. rather americas complicity with isreal and slaughter of palestinians..) there is justice.. but this justice is deeper, more inner.. more soul based. there will be a justice. but that doesn't help you now. i know. and i am sorry. sorry beyond all words. sorry that i cannot stop this insanity. i am sorry and i stand with you and send energy of light and
hope for this insanity to end. a comrade in nyc.

thank you for writing...ive been waiting nervously to read your next entry.

but then i feel bad for reading it. i go about my own life in security of my dream existance in canada...not having a clue what a bomb sounds like, what a destroyed buidling looks like, what having dead neighbours feels like.

instead, i read your entries and try to imagine what it must be like...and do that, after eating some cereal with blueberries on my balcony, overlooking lake ontario with a full moon - very beautiful.

the moon's light bounces off the water and makes a cloud like body above it...really amazing.

i hope, for a second, for a tiny second that if youre reading this, your mind was taken away from the horror around you.

I live in America, and have many neighbors who support what is happening. It's pure ignorance.
I only hope that the arab world will come together, an our governments will become more organized. That is our only hope, or else this will go on for ever, and more inocent people like you will live to see such horror.

Or just google search “Saddam Rumsfeld” and click images.

Zena,asalam Alaikum, from one artist to another, I know how it feels, I'm the age as you, and I've been where you've been, only 18 yrs ago.
Use your god given talent as an artist, to push for change once all this is over, to raise awarness. I know this will stay with you until the end, it's only much later, when all the bloodshed, fear, and misery ends, that the road to recovery gets harder.
It will get harder to cope as time goes by, but you will get stronger, and realize one day that you were allowed to witness this event for a reason. embrace it, and keep telling the world,

your voice is louder than you think,
love to you and your family, the dogs, and your friend.

It is a terrible nightmare that Beirut has been undergoing.I don't wish such a plight even to my worst enemy. I wonder what kind of people are in the government of Israel. Are they humanbeings or animals? Animals don't have conscience. Individuals like me can only express our outrage in 'letters to the editor' column of newspapers. Only the governments can act, they must act but that are not acting. Why can't all the Arab countries together declare war on Israel? There may be mighty US behind Israel but still US can't afford to incur the wrath of so many countries. If US really tries to come to the aid of Israel my best guess is some European countries might throw their weight behind Lebanon. It is surprising to see that the world is utterly devoid of good people or good governments that have the courage to come to the aid of Lebanon. I feel terribly sorry for you all. I am not able find words to say anything else.

To my American fellows:
Israel is NO friend of USA, they just use us and our resources for their evil cause:

“...The ruling by U.S. District clears the way for the trial of two former officials of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, a pro-Israel lobbying organization.
The defendants, Steven J. Rosen and Keith Weissman, were indicted last year by a federal grand jury on charges of conspiring to obtain information about Iran and other Middle East nations from Lawrence A. Franklin, then a Pentagon analyst. Franklin pleaded guilty to passing government secrets and in January was sentenced to more than 12 years in prison.”

you can read the whole article

“By Way of Deception – thou shalt do war”, as their own ex-Mossad agent Victor Ostrovsky said is the official motto of Israel’s Mossad.

Dear SENA,
Didnot hear from you for 2 days Was worried.Glad to know that you are safe.One does not know what to say or do.There is nothing that any one person can do.
I am suprrised to see that a few americans have sympathy for Lebanese.I think they are rare exceptions.Most AMERICANS have been so brainwashed by their media that they dont even want to search for the TRUTH.
There has to be a change in AMERICAN thinking. Being obsessed about your own happiness at the expense of everything around you is going to pull you deeper and deeper into the pits.
In INDIA we have been facing terrorist activities since the 70s.We have not answered it with violence.We have not gone and bombed places.I think may be U.S and ISRAEL can learn from us.

"عن كتاب النرويجي "اود تفايت" في الحرب والدبلوماسية Krig og diplomati

18 تشرين الأول (أكتوبر) 2005

بقلم نضال حمد

في أحدث الكتب الصادرة في النرويج عن القضية الفلسطينية والصراع في الشرق الأوسط،وكذلك عن الدور النرويجي في المنطقة، كشف الصحافي النرويجي المخضرم والخبير في شئون الشرق الأوسط السيد " أوود كارشتين تفايتOdd K Tveit" وهو بالمناسبة كبير مراسلي المحطة التلفزيونية الرسمية النرويجية "أنيركو- NRK" في فلسطين وجوارها من بلاد الطوق ، أن للنرويج حكومات وأفراد يدا في القضية وضلوعا في الصراع بأشكال مختلفة ومتفاوتة.

ففي كتابه الجديد " في الحرب والدبلوماسية -Krig og diplomati " والذي جاء فيه كثير من المعلومات الهامة والجديدة عن دور النرويج في النزاع العربي الصهيوني في الفترة ما بين 1978 و1996. حيث قدم تفايت صورة مفصلة عن الغزو والاحتلال الإسرائيلي للبنان، وجدير بالذكر انه كان واحدا من الصحافيين الأوروبيين القلائل الذين غطوا تلك الأحداث من خلال عمله كمراسل للتلفزيون والإذاعة في النرويج. كشف الكتاب عن جوانب خفية وجديدة للدبلوماسية النرويجية في الشرق الأوسط في حقبة الثمانينات. وهذا الكتاب ليس الأول للصحافي تفايت عن الصراع في الشرق الأوسط،إذ له عدة كتب منشورة نذكر منها كتابه عن مجزرة صبرا وشاتيلا وحصار بيروت وغزو لبنان، وكتاب آخر " كل شيء لأجل إسرائيل( Oslo - Jerusalem 1948-78-Alt for Israel ) صادر سنة 1996. ويتحدث عن سياسيين نرويجيين عملوا في خدمة الصهاينة وكيان إسرائيل. وكتاب آخر بعنوان " Annas hus: en beretning fra Stavanger til Jerusalem، بيت أننا: حكاية من ستافنغير إلى القدس" صادر سنة 2004. يروي الكتاب قصة مهاجرة نرويجية اسمها أننا سبافورد هاجرت إلى القدس سنة 1896 وكذلك عن تاريخ فلسطين والقدس من 1880 حتى 1948.

وللعلم فان الصحافي تفايت كان أجرى حوارا مطولا قبل حوالي ثلاث سنوات مع كاتب هذه السطور خصص لهذا الكتاب، حيث دار الحديث عن غزو لبنان وحصار بيروت ومجازر صبرا وشاتيلا التي شهدها الصحافي النرويجي بأم عينيه. كما يتحدث الكتاب عن محاولات اغتيال كان سينفذها فلسطينيون على الأراضي النرويجية انتقاما لاغتيال قادة فلسطينيين على أيدي الموساد وعملائه. وقد كانت عميلة الموساد سيلفيا رافائيل - Sylvia Rafael Schjødt" (أريكا تشامبرز) المتهمة بالاشتراك في اغتيال أبو حسن سلامة، قائد " أمن ال 17 " واحد قادة " منظمة أيلول الأسود التي نفذت عملية ميونيخ " في بيروت عام 1979)وزوجها النرويجي"أنوس شودت - Annæus Schjødt". هذا وكانت" سيلفيا رافائيل اليهودية الجنوب افريقية قد شاركت مع الموساد سنة 1973 في مدينة " ليليهامر– Lillehammer" الجبلية النرويجية في عملية اغتيال المغربي " أحمد بو شيخي-Ahmed Bouchiki" شبيه الأمير الأحمر، أبو حسن سلامة. وقد توفيت سيلفا رافائيل في التاسع من فبراير2005 عن 67 عاما بعد عناء مع مرض عضال ودفنت في بريتوريا بجنوب أفريقيا .

أهم ما جاء به الكتاب هو الحديث عن عميلة نرويجية للموساد اتهمها الكتاب بالمشاركة في تزويد الموساد بمعلومات عن القائد الفلسطيني الكبير خليل الوزير أبو جهاد الذي اغتيل على أيدي كوماندوس من الموساد الإسرائيلي في تونس ربيع 1988. وتبين أن المتهمة بكونها عميلة الموساد المفترضة و المذكورة في الكتاب هي الناشطة النرويجية السابقة ضمن لجنة فلسطين أو لجنة التضامن مع الشعب الفلسطيني "كارين لينستاد – Karin Linstad" زوجة الدكتور" تروند علي لينستاد – Trond Ali Linstad" الرئيس السابق للجنة فلسطين في النرويج، والذي خدم طبيبا في مخيمات اللاجئين الفلسطينيين في لبنان، وكان شيوعيا ماوياً ثم اسلم متأثرا بثورة الإمام الخميني في إيران.

وأصبح بعد ذلك ومازال احد أهم قادة العمل الإسلامي في النرويج، حيث أسس مدرسة لتعليم اللغة العربية والتربية الإسلامية،ولديه برنامج تلفزيوني أسبوعي مدته نصف ساعة في التلفزيون النرويجي يتحدث عن الإسلام والقضايا المصرية مثل قضية فلسطين، واذكر أن الدكتور علي لينستاد وضع البرنامج التلفزيوني المذكور تحت تصرف المؤسسات الفلسطينية في النرويج منذ سنة الانتفاضة الأولى وذلك من اجل أن يكون البث عن القضية الفلسطينية والانتفاضة وعن فلسطين. وقد عاد قبل عدة اشهر وقدم نفس العرض للمنظمة النرويجية الموحدة من اجل فلسطين كي تقوم بتقديم مواد إعلامية تخدم القضية الفلسطينية بالذات.

اعترف الدكتور علي لوسائل الإعلام المحلية أن زوجته كانت قبل نحو ثلاثين عاما سألته عن رأيه في حال قيامها بالعمل كعميلة في الموساد كي تتمكن من الحصول على معلومات تفيد الفلسطينيين فأجابها بأنه لا مانع لديه. وعاد وأكد ذلك مؤخرا في حديثه لوسائل الإعلام. كما أكد تروند علي لينستاد أن اعتراف زوجته بأنها كانت عميلة للموساد يجب ألا يساء فهمه من العرب والمسلمين، فقد خدعت الموساد وعملت لحساب الفلسطينيين والدليل على ذلك أن الموساد هو الذي يحاول فضحها اليوم انتقاما منها لأنه كان وراء المعلومات التي تضمنها الكتاب . كما لازال يردد ويؤكد أن زوجته مناصرة ومؤيدة للشعب الفلسطيني وأنها قدمت خدمات للقضية الفلسطينية.

لكن مؤلف الكتاب يدعي ان كارين لينستاد كانت عميلة للموساد ولجهات أخرى لم يحددها الكتاب بشكل صريح وواضح. فما نشر في الكتاب يوضح أنها كانت عميلة للموساد وبانها سافرت إلى ( إسرائيل) بجواز إسرائيلي وتدربت هناك منذ عام 1981م، ثم عادت إلى أوسلو وسافرت من هناك إلى مخيمات اللاجئين الفلسطينيين في لبنان مع فريق نرويجي متطوع لمساعدة الفلسطينيين، وانها قد زودت الموساد بمواقع القيادات الفلسطينية وتحركاتها، وكانت مكلفة بمراقبة تحركات أبي جهاد بصورة خاصة.

وقد اعترفت كارين بعمالتها لجهاز الموساد لكن ما زاد الطين بلة كما يقول المثل الشعبي تصريحات أدلى بها الدبلوماسي النرويجي الكبير هانس ويلهام لونغفا الذي عمل في لبنان والذي كان قد لعب دورا هاما في منع تنفيذ عملية اغتيال سيلفيا رافائيل وزوجها من خلال إبلاغ الرئيس الفلسطيني الراحل ياسر عرفات بمعرفة السلطات النرويجية بنوايا المنظمة. هذا وقال لونغفا ان سلطات بلاده كانت تعرف ان كارين لينستاد عميلة للموساد وعملت بعلم المخابرات النرويجية.

وتقول الرواية ان كارين لينستاد ذهبت سنة 1981 بنفسها إلى السفارة الإسرائيلية في اوسلو وعرضت عليهم خدماتها لكنهم شكوا بأمرها،لكن بعد أن قدمت لهم معلومات هامة وذات قيمة عن القيادات الفلسطينية، وبعد ان قدمت معلومات مهمة عن تحركات أبو جهاد الوزير، ومن ثم بعد السؤال عنها عند المخابرات النرويجية التي ردت بشكل ايجابي أي قامت بتزكيتها، تم قبولها في صفوف الموساد. وبحسب الرواية أيضا فان علاقة كارين كانت جيدة بابي جهاد الوزير وزوجته،رغم أن أبا جهاد لم يرها أبدا في منزله مع انه كان من السهل على أي نرويجي يبدي تعاطفه مع الفلسطينيين ان يدخل منازل القادة الفلسطينيين في لبنان. وللعلم فان السيدة انتصار الوزير كانت قد زارت النرويج سنة 1981 بدعوة من لجنة فلسطين في النرويج وقد حلت ضيفة على عائلة علي وكارين لينستاد في اوسلو. هذا وكانت كارين لينستاد متواجدة في لبنان خلال الغزو الإسرائيلي (عملية سلامة الجليل) سنة 1982.

وقد ادعت كارين لينستاد أن الموساد يريد الانتقام منها عبر تسريب المعلومات وقالت إنه يريد إيذاءها، وشككت في المعلومات التي يتضمنها الكتاب واعتبرتها افتعالا ومبالغات. وبحسب وكالات الأنباء فان الكتاب كشف عن أن كارين لينستاد كانت تعمل عميلة للموساد. ولم يفصح الكتاب عمن هو الطرف الثاني الذي عملت كارين لصالحه.إذ أنها وزوجها يقولان أنها عملت لصالح جهة فلسطينية، بينما الصحافي تفيت يعتقد أنها كانت تعمل أيضا لصالح المخابرات النرويجية. وهذا ما صرح به تفيت للزميل اشرف الخضراء مراسل تلفزيون العربية في اوسلو.وجدير بالذكر أن المخابرات النرويجية كانت تراقب تحركات ونشاطات الفلسطينيين وأصدقائهم في النرويج. وقد فسر البعض ذلك بغية منع وقوع عمليات اغتيال يقوم بها فلسطينيون أو أصدقاء ومتعاطفون معهم ضد إسرائيليين أو عملاء للموساد في النرويج مثل سيلفيا رافئيل وغيرها.وهنا لا بد من العودة إلى فترة حرب الخليج وعاصفة الصحراء واحتلال الكويت 1989- 1990 حيث هاجرت دفعات من مقاتلي وبعض كوادر فتح وتنظيمات فلسطينية أخرى من بلدان المغرب العربي إلى النرويج بغية طلب اللجوء السياسي، فما كان من المخابرات النرويجية إلا أن استدعت الموساد الإسرائيلي حيث قام بالتحقيق مع المهاجرين الفلسطينيين. مما تسبب فيما بعد بفضيحة للسلطات النرويجية أطاحت برئيس الشرطة في البلاد.

ويقال أن كارين لينستاد كانت قد قطعت علاقاتها مع الأصدقاء القدامى واختفت من الوسط الفلسطيني وتوقف نشاطها الداعم للقضية الفلسطينية منذ اغتيال أبو جهاد الوزير سنة 1988،ثم ما لبثت أن قامت بقطع علاقاتها مع لجنة فلسطين نهائيا سنة 1989.هذا بحسب ما جاء في بعض وسائل الإعلام.

لا بد من القول وبصوت عالٍ أن هناك ضحايا على الخريطة هم أساسا أبناء الشعب الفلسطيني المشرد والمشتت والمعرض للاغتيال والتصفية والتشويش والمراقبة في كل ساعة وزمان ومكان. حتى أن الأمر لم يعد يقتصر على الفلسطينيين وحدهم فهناك من يراقب ويتابع المتضامنين مع هؤلاء من النرويجيين وغيرهم من الأوروبيين. وقضية كارين لينستاد تجعل الفلسطينيين وأنصارهم في بلاد اوسلو يعيدون دراسة أوضاعهم والتحري عن الذين ينخرطون في صفوف لجان التضامن لأن هناك من المتضامنين من قد يكون من المندسين والعملاء. وقضية كارين لينستاد سوف تبقى مفتوحة على كل الاحتمالات لأنه من الصعب الآن الجزم فيما إذا كانت لينستاد مناصرة للقضية الفلسطينية بحق وحقيقة أم أنها كانت طوال الوقت عميلة للمخابرات النرويجية ولجهاز الموساد. فكل شيء وارد وممكن ومحتمل،ولا بد ان الأيام القادمة سوف تكشف خبايا الموضوع وستضع النقاط على الحروف وتظهر الخيط الأسود من الأبيض.

Love from Poland


Here is a poem by Basima Farhat that I wanted to share with you all:

To all things not Love
I send Love
to all things Love
I send Love
to all things not of the light
I send Love
to all things light
I send Love
to all things that live in darkness
I send Love
to all things alive only to the dark
I send Love
to all things of hate
I send Love
God is Love
Hate is no more
than a lack of light
Therefore I send to hate,
that is the only way to peace
