Occupation is Oppression
A speech by Desmond Tutu, at a conference on “Ending the Occupation” at Old South Church in Boston, Massachusetts
“On one of my visits to the Holy Land I drove to a church with the Anglican Bishop in Jerusalem. I could hear tears in his voice as he pointed to Jewish settlements. I thought of the desire of Israelis for security. But what of the Palestinians who have lost their land and their homes?
I have experienced Palestinians pointing to what were their homes, now occupied by Israeli Jews. I was walking with Canon Naim Ateek (the head of the Sabeel Ecumenical Center) in Jerusalem. He pointed and said: “Our home was over there. We were driven out of our home; it is now occupied by Israeli Jews.”
My heart aches. I say, why are our memories so short? Have our Jewish sisters and brothers forgotten their humiliation? Have they forgotten the collective punishment, the home demolitions, in their own history so soon? Have they turned their backs on their profound and noble religious traditions? Have they forgotten that God cares deeply about the downtrodden?
Israel will never get true security and safety through oppressing another people. A true peace can ultimately be built only on justice. We condemn the violence of suicide bombers, and we condemn the corruption of young minds taught hatred; but we also condemn the violence of military incursions in the occupied lands, and the inhumanity that won’t let ambulances reach the injured.
The military action of recent days, I predict with certainty, will not provide the security and peace Israelis want; it will only intensify the hatred.” ~ April 13 2002
Vanessa is in the house – Leeds Today
Friends today described Vanessa as “vibrant and fun loving” and guaranteed she would create a stir within the house.
“Vanessa is a real extrovert. Men will instantly fall in love with her and the girls will love to hate her. She is really feminine and a head turner. She is extremely clean and tidy and a great cook. She is also quite sporty and a team player so that will stand her in good stead when it comes to the challenges. Who can say whether she will win but I’m sure whatever happens she will leave the house with lots of offers of work – and probably marriage!”
‘Manager, there’s a fly in my waiter!’
A waiter working in a restaurant in central China gobbled up a fly found by a customer in a bowl of noodles to avoid the manager seeing it.
Diner Li Juan asked to see the manager of the restaurant in Changsha, Hunan province, when she found the insect in her food. The waiter promptly picked up the fly and swallowed it when Li repeatedly demanded that the manager be brought over. The restaurant then refused to acknowledge that anything unusual had been found in Li’s bowl of noodles.
Viennese veggie orchestra (photos)
Hamburg – The sound of 40kg of finely tuned cucumbers, leeks, potatoes, radishes, peppers, aubergines and marrows entertained a German audience at a weekend concert by the Viennese Vegetable Orchestra.
The nine-piece orchestra plays a range of original compositions on instruments constructed from vegetables – including a flute made from a carrot, a saxophone carved out of a cucumber and a pumpkin converted into a double bass.
Deforestation led to Haiti’s floods – iafrica.com
Haitian Prime Minister Gerard Latortue on Friday attributed Haiti’s deadly flash floods to the Caribbean country’s massive deforestation.
“The deep cause of this situation is the deforestation of Haiti,” Latortue said at the summit of European and Latin American leaders in Guadalajara, Mexico. We have lost more than 80 percent of forest because people like to use wood charcoal as a source of energy,”
A UN spokeswoman said there were 1500 dead or missing in Haiti alone.
“We can’t go on like this,” he said of the deforestation issue. “When I return I have plans to speak with the government to invite students in a re-forestation project.”
Vanessa is not just a South African beauty, there is much more to her. This self-confessed adrenaline junkie, loves rugby and runs for an hour every morning. She was the South African archery champion for 2 years running and is a huge heavy metal fan (notice the Slipknot tatoo on her sholder).
Vanessa was a year behind me at Sans Souci Girls High and also dated my ex before leaving for the UK 6 years ago.
I think she’s the prettiest girl on any UK BB so far and I’m certain she will do extremely well. Wouldn’t it be a shock to have a South African winner on the UK BB show?
For the first time ever I will be watching Big Brother. Updates on her will be posted on yummy. Go Vanessa go!
