"I want you to promise me something. If you love someone, you tell them. Even if you’re scared that it’s not the right thing. Even if you’re scared that it’ll cause problems. Even if you’re scared that it will burn your life to the ground. You say it, and you say it loud. And then you go from there."
Mark Sloan to Jackson Avery (Gray’s Anatomy)
Why Doesn’t the Media Care About Dead Palestinians?
Abby Martin remarks on the latest violence in Palestine, including Israeli airstrikes on civilian targets in Gaza.
EVERYONE WATCH THIS
I don’t think any post on tumblr has ever broken my heart as quickly as this one did.
And all I saw on CNN and BBC were reporters relentlessly arguing for the 2 israeli boys who were murdered, apparent rockets that Hamas has in possession that can do severe damage to israel (laughable), to netanyahu’s supposed grief over the death of the palestinian boy. ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME WESTERN MEDIA ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME

Khaled Jarrar, Stamp, State of Palestine #1, 2011.
Governmental documents serve the explicit correlation of identity and affiliation. Palestinian artist Khaled Jarrar uses these attributes as samples for alternative models of identity and anticipates the existence of a state, which until now is mere utopia. He created a stamp with which he stamps passports of travelers and pedestrians in Ramallah, Berlin, Paris and other cities since 2011.
Jarrar is participated in the 7th Berlin Biennale with further aspects of the project that uses another official sign: postage stamps. In utilizing the Deutsche Post AG service called “individual stamp”, the artist produced stamps for the State of Palestine to be used in the regular mail. More than 20,000 stamps have been sold so far. Central element of the design is the Palestine Sunbird. It embodies the wish to create an open, independent country guaranteeing freedom to everyone to carry one’s life in one’s hand. Instead of continuing again and again the discussion about a one- or two-state solution, using these stamps is a simple gesture that creates normality.
Palestinian artist Khaled Jarrar, from the occupied West Bank city of Jenin, has been stamping people’s passports with a seal of a “State of Palestine” to send “a strong political message about our existence as human beings.”
He has invited people to have their passports stamped with the “State of Palestine” seal — his original design featuring a bird and floral motif — in both the occupied West Bank and in Germany.
In this video interview with the German magazine monopol, Jarrar says he chose the site of “Checkpoint Charlie” — the crossing point between East Berlin and West Berlin during the Cold War which is now a tourist attraction where people pay for a souvenir stamp — because checkpoints still are a fact of life in occupied Palestine.
Jarrar explains that Palestinians “are the ones who have the right to welcome anybody to Palestine. And this is my slogan: ‘Welcome to Palestine’ to anybody.”

“I also thank Angelina for dressing in hijab while she visited not just Iraqi refugees but refugees in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Not only did she look good in it, she showed respect and appreciation for their culture and religion and made sure that the focus was not on her looks but rather her mission.”
