Found myself quoted in an anti-Israel project. I am labeled as an anti-Palestinian Berkeley-based blogger, "proof" being a post I wrote some time ago (http://tinyurl.com/23b9zxv). The scary part of this is that they could have but didn't quote what I actually said, which would have demonstrated that being pro-Israel need not be equated with being anti-Palestinian. I wrote: "It's the volatile encounters on campus that make most clear what the "Pro-Israel" groups on campus need to do – acknowledge mistakes Israel has made/makes, and find ways to express a Zionism resonant to those exposed to the partially-correct and emotionally-overwhelming social justice claims of groups like Veritas." I believe in 2 States for 2 Peoples. Does this make someone anti-Palestinian? Here's the link to the post that "quotes" me. --http://www.australiansforpalestine.net/57001#more-57001

To Kneel [a #Poem]

To Kneel 

(c) Rabbi Menachem Creditorfor Landingham & Kaepernick, our angels in the wings
Sometimes, it isn't about nuance.
Sometimes it just comes down to facing the storm,
calling God out,
standing at the center of a whirlwind
holding your ground.

No cathedral is immune to agony,
no soul impervious to life itself no nation purely noble.
If it were any other way,
there would be no need for cathedrals
in the first place.

Kneel,  stand,  sit,  rise up.

To kneel is
to submit  to lower oneself  to step down  to pause.
To kneel is to call attention  to touch the Earth's face to listen to those  whose blood saturates  the very roots of our story.
To kneel is to step aside  to step outside  to invite others to come closer  to remember.
To kneel is not to stand not to stand not to stand idly by.
Speak your truth,
God damn it.

That's what God wants most of all.
