Blogger solidarity

One of the many things bloggers do to show their solidarity for their other selves on the blogosphere is to show their appreciation with awards.
We live in a world of rapidly declining solidarity and I must confess that the blogosphere is a great place to meet interesting and brilliant people who are genuinly concerned abouth others and about the world.

And Homeyra's eclectic choice for awards will not disappoint you. I recommend Luke Powell's site, his art speaks of life, humanity, memory and beauty.

Sophia,
Do you think I should sell my apartment and move to Canada? Could I get a job there? I think my country is about to tumble into total economic collapse.

I'm serious.

Elizabeth,

You will defnitely find work here. And I will be more than happy to introduce you to Canada. However, I think we are not immune to what is happening in your country. We are about to reelect Stephen Harper, the evangelical conservative as prime minister and although our banking system is more regulated, our banks do most of their dealings with the US.
I think we are going into total collapse. We have been in this crisis since the collapse of the IT bubble and the market was trying to replace this bubble with another while going from one crisis to another. The system needs a major reform and the courageous politician who will do this reform is not even born...

Sophia & Elizabeth - you should both come to the USA, which will continue to do very well. The downside for Sophia is that she sees Jews in every possible conspiracy, and she will be troubled that the U.S. government permits Jews to freely work, congregate and marry - unlike every in every Arab country where they have been treated like Sh*t for centuries.

from the blogs on the other side:
re: Paul McCartney's concert in Tel Aviv:

At the end of "A Day in the Life," which he had dedicated to John, McCartney segued into Lennon's "Give Peace a Chance." He sang only the chorus; but it was thrilling to be among 50,000 people in Israel singing and meaning every word of the anthem. I await the day when 50,000 Arabs sing it together with us... McCartney was politically correct, offering a Ramadan greeting a couple of times, as well as wishing us Shana Tova. The man is an astonishingly talented composer and performer and he deserves every penny he has earned. He should also be praised for his genuine attempt to promote peace.

Randy: Do you think maybe 50,000 Palestinians would have come to the concert if they were able to travel to Israel??

Randy said...

Sophia
As you know the borders are blocked because of PA-sponsored suicide bombings and Hamas rockets. If Hamas would renounce its agenda to destroy Israel and stop rocket attacks, then 50,000 Palestinians could come to Israel for a McCartney concert.

Will you print this reply?

Randy,

I think you should answer Elizabeth's comment here. So why are you adressing me ?

Randy said...

sorry Sophia, i made a mistake

Elizabeth:
As you know the borders are blocked because of PA-sponsored suicide bombings and Hamas rockets. If Hamas would renounce its agenda to destroy Israel and stop rocket attacks, then 50,000 Palestinians could come to Israel for a McCartney concert.

Elizabeth - Can you acknowledtge that Israel withdrew from Gaza and Hamas is still firing rockets? Do you see that Intifadah 2 (begun right after Arafat rejected Camp David offer) is the reason for new security wall?

But is this any reason for Muslim activists to issue death threats against Sir Paul McCartney?

Randy said...

Sophia - as you requested, i answered Elizabeth's question and directed it to her. Can you please post?

Randy said...

Sophia - why don't you print my reply to Elizabeth?
