She is beautiful.

New sign for my car:

Israel, you can stop a boat but you cannot stop a movement!

Fuck Israel. Fuck the Z.O.G.

Boycott. Divest. Sanction.

Enough.

Long, multi-post discussions about this very image and letter on http://www.theatlantic.com/ta-nehisi-coates/

Much about the men's reaction to her beauty; and a response to the whole thing from her son.

Worth the look.

And TNC's civil war blogging is stunning.

MEANWHILE back in Gaza; Ahmed and the Missus and the Kids are looking forward to yet another candel lit dinner of some barley and MAYBE Dad has saved up another can of those sardines somewhere.

No sardines allowed, they might be used for making missiles.

Beautiful on the outside and the inside, hmm, that's rare. Like Rachel Corrie, moral and physical courage. Don't get a lot of that round these parts.

That is a pretty face, and she seems like an extremely interesting and admirable woman. Here's some more about her for anyone interested.

Funny, at the same time I was reading this post, I was watching some evil prick who's sad little face seems to be coming apart at the seams from the weight of his sins, spin the flotilla incident on a morning TV talk show. This seems to be the prick of which you speak.

PEOPLE Behaving Badly

We all get angry sometimes. Sometimes we use our firearms, sometimes we pour ketchup, sometimes we use language that dehumanizes our opponents.

May the Creative Forces of the Universe have mercy on our souls, if any.

I've never denied that I myself am an angry, confused monkey. I think we could all use some dehumanization as long as it's universal.

I would like to remind the host that among the groups of simian primates, humans are "apes" and not monkeys.

Monkeys possess one less brain cell.

I just keep coming back to this photo. The set in that jaw, the clarity of purpose in those eyes. There's someone who knows what she wants to do and isn't going to take shit off of anyone. Fabulous.
