‘This year, the Hebrew New Year and the Hijra (Muslim) New Year coincide exactly on exactly the same date. This is an opportunity to wish us all a good year…’

I’m translating this NEW YEAR message by עומדים ביחד نقف معًا [“We Stand Together”] because it feels good to know this, I am glad to see this, & even if I’m in another country, I extend my wishes with theirs, although my hopes go further, for  equality and partnership for Jews and Arabs in all of Palestine.

This year, the Hebrew New Year and the Hijra (Muslim) New Year coincide exactly on exactly the same date. This is an opportunity to wish us all a good year, a year of peace, a year of equality and partnership for Jews and Arabs in Israel, a year in which we’ll build a just society in this country, where people can live in dignity, earn a living in dignity, grow old in dignity.

Hoping others will share the message, I think it’s urgent. Yesterday I wrote:

I posted this meme a couple of days ago using a “Stencil” typeface, & wrote:

Enough of the bald-faced Big Lie the pro-Zionists are pushing!
If anything’s increasing anti-Semitism in the world it’s the Zionist state’s crimes of commission & omission.
The post received very few likes, shares or responses. Since I think it’s important & urgent to spread this message, I’m trying different fonts & some color this time. Readers are also invited to suggest fonts, layouts, wordings of their own. IMHO, the difference between anti-Zionism & anti-Semitism need to be reaffirmed again & again, especially now, with the increasing conflation of the two by powerful pro-Zionist interests.

What this came from: while (in bed before sleep) remembering two of a set of four lines I learned from an erstwhile mentor, E.J. Gold (via his books) & during an early period in this bed in this room in the hills outside Mullum (we moved here in 2002) & used to repeat before sleep: “For the sake of all beings everywhere”, & “To relieve the suffering of the Absolute”, these lines came.

& what do I know? well, while I can’t say I believe that silently sending one’s good-willing energy “out there” can make a difference, as some people say prayers can, I also can’t say I believe that it can’t — & it certainly can’t do any harm. & it makes me feel good… & that’s good too…
