warبينما تتجه أنظار العالم إلى الشرق الأوسط بوصفه البؤرة الأكثر سخونة آنياً، و بينما ترسل كبرى الدول أساطيلها و مدمراتها إلى شرق المتوسط يجد ابن هذا الشرق نفسه مفعولاً به آكثر منه فاعلاً في المعركة الدائرة على أرضه وإن كان يشكل هو آحد تفاصيها… ولا بد مع تشابك خيوط اللعبة السياسية وتعقيدها وانكشاف بعض عناصرها كتكرار ممل لحروب القرون الوسطى وما قبل القرون القرون الوسطى أن نبحث عن جذور المشكلة في ما هو أبعد من السياسية الآنية، لا سيما وأن إشارات كثيرة تدل على الامتداد التاريخي للأزمة الراهنة من صراع الشرق والغرب إلى صراع السنة والشيعة… إلخ. فهل حقاً أن جذور الصراع تكمن في ما يزعم له من مبررات أم أن عوامل أخرى اجتمعت المرة تلو المرة وقادت الجماعات البشرية إلى تصادم حتمي؟ (more…)

My friend Hasan Karajah, the Palestinian activist in Stop the Wall Grassroots Organization was  arrested by Israeli forces on January 23rd, 2013, with no charge. IOF solders broke the door of Hasan’s house in Safa near Ramallah at 2:30 am, arrested Hasan and since then he is detained and tortured in the Israeli jail. Hasan is denied the right to meet a  lawyer and he has already lost 12 kgs within less than a month. Hassan suffers health problems and requires treatment and continuous medical supervision. On the night of his arrest, the IOF refused to allow him to take his medicine.

This homemade song is a small effort to support Hasan and his family. It is based on  a quote from Hasan’s words “revolution is the true meaning of love”. You can follow @Freedom4Hassan to support Hasan and all those who are  incarcerated without trial or charge.

After acknowledging responsibility of the drone downed over al-Naqab last week and claiming its members fighting for “self-defense” in Syria, Hezbollah (and consequently the whole country) is put in the face of two looming wars and an increasing gap between Lebanese religio-political groups. In his speech last Thursday, Secretary General of Hezbollah Sayyid Nasrallah claimed he has the right to launch aerial reconnaissance drones over Israel and promised to send more in the future. He also justified the presence of Hezbollah members fighting against rebels in Syria, saying they are protecting their homes. Nasrallah kept for Hezbollah the right of military supporting president Assad whenever suitable.
