Vulnerable

***

“The strongest love is the love that can demonstrate its fragility.”
― Paulo Coelho

***

“When you love someone, truly love them, you lay your heart open to them.
You give them a part of yourself that you give to no one else,
and you let them inside a part of you that only they can hurt-
you literally hand them the razor with a map of where to cut deepest
and most painfully on your heart and soul.
And when they do strike, it’s crippling-like having your heart carved out.”
― Sherrilyn Kenyon

***
“What happens when people open their hearts?”…
“They get better.”
― Haruki Murakami
***

“When we were children, we used to think that when we were grown-up we would no longer be vulnerable.
But to grow up is to accept vulnerability… To be alive is to be vulnerable.”

Obama Promises Kept and Cashed by Iran

Beyond the Cusp

“We will extend a hand if you are unwilling to unclench your fist” President Obama proclaimed in his inaugural address in January 2009. Iran heeded these words and now that President Obama had run the entire gamete and though he won the White House twice, he managed to lose the Congress entirely and the Republicans now hold both houses. That probably is the least of the tactical problems facing President Obama in completing his desired handshake with Iran forging a relationship he sees as lasting into eternity as the two powers divide the world between them. The problem is that Iran never has unclenched their fist. But even this is of no concern as Iran has done the next best thing. Iran has used that clenched fist and pummeled President Obama so severely that he now sees that clenched fist as a hand extended for a warm, friendly handshake as…

Feathers

Exposed Emotions

Shiver,
In my bones,
You instill voltages,
In my veins,
Your fingers know,
When to be feather-like,
When to put pressure,
And where;

I’m a lotus petal,
As white as not white,
As soft as cloud,
You hold me not,
‘Cause that’ll make me,
Change color,
But you hold me,
And I ravish;

A bird,
You make me believe I’m,
The way your fingers,
Feel me,
As they mere,
Pass over,
Touching me,
So softly,
As if I’m fragile,
So much;

Weightless I am,
Heavy,
Only in my head,
As the liquid,
Flows from top,
To bottom,
The language of love you know
How to commune;

The kind of love,
I know, gleams
In me
In your embrace
As our lips press,
Gently,
Honestly, no,
From this l-o-v-e,
I’m not immune;

Americans support Netanyahu and Israel

WarSclerotic

Americans support Netanyahu and Israel – Israel Opinion, Ynetnews.

Op-ed: Obama and Israel’s center-left political camp in are panicking at the prospect of again having to witness the respect and adoration America has for one of the best prime ministers Israel ever had.

Shoula Romano Horing

Published:02.13.15, 22:13 / Israel Opinion

Polls in the United States show that not only does the American public overwhelmingly support Israel, but that their opinions are more aligned with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s stand on Iran and radical Islam than with those of US President Barack Obama. 

However, the center-left political camp and the leftist media in Israel and abroad seem demonically possessed with fear mongering Israeli voters into thinking that Netanyahu’s upcomingcongressional speech and policy disagreement with Obama, will endanger and undermine the important Israel-US alliance.

Daily, they write another opinion piece or quote another so called US- Israel expert…

What is missing from the BBC’s post-conflict reporting from Gaza Strip?

BBC Watch

Since the implementation of the ceasefire between Israel and Hamas towards the end of August last year, the BBC’s reporting from the Gaza Strip has focused on very specific topics.BBC building

The vast majority of reports have related to the topic of damage to buildings in the Gaza Strip, with a prominent theme in that reporting being promotion of the inaccurate notion that efforts to repair and rebuild housing are hampered solely by Israeli restrictions on imports of construction materials to the Gaza Strip. Examples can be seen here, here, here, here, here, here, here, here and here

Another trend seen in BBC reporting since the end of the conflict has been the amplification of reports by politically motivated NGOs involved in lawfare: see examples here, here, here and here. Audiences have also seen and heard reports on what can…
