i am not an angry person but i could not help but shout and curse aloud just now with such fury in reaction to yet another timely and provacative extremist Settler disturbance. i am so tired of this minority holding our country back from so much in which to gain, and most importantly, from shalom, the peace of wholeness. But as i calm myself i realize too that this could just be the beginning of Settler extremism in Jerusalem being so close to direct peace talks and most especially if building freeze is extended as (rightful) precondition. If only the majorative Left could stir from its apathy. If only i could direct my frustration and anger to joining frequent peace marches and peace initiatives, holding our politicians accountable and taking our country, our future back. If only... Enough talk. Tomorrow i join weekly East Jerusalem Friday protest to let East Jerusalem, larger Israel, and the world know that there is an alternative to Settler extremism. Adama Meshuga'at.
