Homeless Palestinian couples got married today (Sunday August 17th, 2014) at a UN-run school in Rafah, southern Gaza sheltering thousands of people from Israeli attacks. Israel continued to deliberately target civilian homes and reduced them to rubble making another 500,000 Palestinians homeless during its most recent assault on Gaza, the majority off whom are already refugees after Zionist forces expelled them from their homes in the build up to the creation of the state of Israel in 1948.

Good morning from Gaza, Palestine. Men wake up to a view of what’s left from a neighborhood following Israeli “surgical strikes”.

okay but when you have holocaust survivors and people who were activists during the civil rights movement supporting mike brown and then KKK members and neo nazi’s supporting the officer you should be able to figure out which side is the right one.

I wept until my tears were dry
I prayed until the candles melted
I knelt until the kneeling became bored of me
I asked you about Mohammed and Christ
Oh Jerusalem, the fragrance of prophets
The shortest path between earth and sky
Oh Jerusalem, the citadel of laws
A beautiful child with fingers charred
Your eyes are sad, oh, you city of the Virgin
You are the shady oasis passed by the Prophet
Your streets are melancholy
Your minarets are mourning
You, the beauty wrapped in black
Who rings the bells at the Church of Resurrection,
On Sunday morning?
Who brings toys for the children
On Christmas eve?
Oh Jerusalem, the city of sorrow
A big tear wandering in the eye
Who will halt the aggression
On you, the pearl of religions?
Who will wash your bloody walls?
Who will safeguard the Bible?
Who will rescue the Quran?
Who will save Christ, From those who have killed Christ?
Who will save man?
Oh Jerusalem my town
Oh Jerusalem my love
Tomorrow the lemon trees will blossom
And the olive trees will rejoice
Your eyes will dance
The migrant pigeons will return
To your sacred roofs
And your children will play again
And fathers and sons will meet
On your rosy hills
My town
The town of peace and olives

بكيت.. حتى انتهت الدموع
صليت.. حتى ذابت الشموع
ركعت.. حتى ملني الركوع
سألت عن محمد، فيك وعن يسوع
يا قدس، يا مدينة تفوح أنبياء
يا أقصر الدروب بين الأرض والسماء
يا قدس، يا منارة الشرائع
يا طفلةً جميلةً محروقة الأصابع
حزينةٌ عيناك، يا مدينة البتول
يا واحةً ظليلةً مر بها الرسول
حزينةٌ حجارة الشوارع
حزينةٌ مآذن الجوامع
يا قدس، يا جميلةً تلتف بالسواد
من يقرع الأجراس في كنيسة القيامة؟
صبيحة الآحاد..
من يحمل الألعاب للأولاد؟
في ليلة الميلاد..
يا قدس، يا مدينة الأحزان
يا دمعةً كبيرةً تجول في الأجفان
من يوقف العدوان؟
عليك، يا لؤلؤة الأديان
من يغسل الدماء عن حجارة الجدران؟
من ينقذ الإنجيل؟
من ينقذ القرآن؟
من ينقذ المسيح ممن قتلوا المسيح؟
من ينقذ الإنسان؟
يا قدس.. يا مدينتي
يا قدس.. يا حبيبتي
غداً.. غداً.. سيزهر الليمون
وتفرح السنابل الخضراء والزيتون
وتضحك العيون..
وترجع الحمائم المهاجرة..
إلى السقوف الطاهره
ويرجع الأطفال يلعبون
ويلتقي الآباء والبنون
على رباك الزاهرة..
يا بلدي..
يا بلد السلام والزيتون

-Nizar Qabbani, Jerusalem

On Wednesday (August 20, 2014), Protesters in New York City unfurled a massive Palestinian flag with the words “Gaza in our hearts. Boycott. Divestment. Sanctions” from the Manhattan Bridge, which connects Brooklyn and Manhattan. The banner drop came as demonstrators marched across the Brooklyn Bridge.
