The Blockade: Focus on Gaza

Commendable coverage from Al Jazeera reporting on the arrival of Viva Palestina and how the Israeli blockade continues to hinder life in Gaza, focusing on the life of one fisherman and his family (h/t ICH). Also includes short interviews with George Galloway and Sari Bashi, whose organisation produced the new israeli animation, Closed Zone, in the second clip.

Timely Reminders

"Those who crusade, not for God in themselves, but against the devil in others, never succeed in making the world better, but leave it either as it was, or sometimes perceptibly worse than what it was, before the crusade began. By thinking primarily of evil we tend, however excellent our intentions, to create occasions for evil to manifest itself."
-- Aldous Huxley

"The only war that matters is the war against the imagination. All others are subsumed by it."
-- Diane DiPrima, "Rant", from Pieces of a Song.

"It is difficult
to get the news from poems
yet men die miserably every day
for lack
of what is found there"
-- William Carlos Williams, "Asphodel, That Greeny Flower"
