  1. Dear Divanee,
    I am not an activist but my work (i am a playwright/screenwriter) has, in recent years, been dominated by the Israeli/Arab conflict. Until May I had a Jewish producer. We applied to Sundance and our pitch was, “Look! We are a Jew and a Muslim and we are making a movie about Jews and Muslims and we love each other, blah, blah, blah.” So we were feeling so good about how enlightened we were. And then one day, at dinner, my producer goes, “YOu can alaways tell the difference between Arabs and Israelis.” “Well, not by their penises,” I interjected, snort, snort. She always laughed at my jokes as bad as they were. THis time she looks at me and says, “No, it’s by the eyes. Arabs have a hardness in their eyes.”
    I sat there staring at her, my veggie burger forgotten. And then we went at it. Everything she said broke my heart, everything I said, I am assuming, broke hers. We are no longer working together and this was well before the Israelis decided to commence the next leg of their genocidal agenda. I am alone now, trying to make a movie about Jews and Muslims finding love, having been dumped by my Jewish producer because I cannot forgive her for not seeing Arabs as anything but agressors. I am so angry at her right now. Somehow, I blame her for the bomb being dropped on the building in Qana because it’s that mentality, that Arabs deserve to be punished, that they are somehow not human that is feeding this war. She kept saying to me that everywhere Jews went they were persecuted. She said that everyone was out to get them. I feel that this notion is integral to why the Israelis feel entitled to killing Arab children. All I can do is keep generating work that addresses this.

  2. Hi Guys,
    If you are looking for more sites and orgs that are on a mission to right the wrong go to http://www.worldcantwait.net
    There is tons of info on how to get involved to stop the Israeli agression and/or stop Bush’s nefarious agenda (one and the same thing at this point.)
    Cheers,
    Sharbari
