Takes the umbrella and walks off to the library and a whole lot of news sites looking for some answers.

I should not have posted that here (or anywhere). I’ve had a very biased education, but when push comes to shove, I do not value the State of Israel over human lives. I would give it up in a moment, for one life.I know it shouldn’t need a push at all.

And I know that now, I’m showing a failure to hold a position.

Lisa Adams | on Tumblr (Australia)

Lisa Adams creates images that are often unsettling, sometimes melancholy or by turns uplifting, but always affecting and richly atmospheric. The scale on which she works affords her involved and tightly realised paintings an intimacy that echoes the personal nature of her subject matter. Indeed, she explores grand emotions on a humble scale so that the very act of looking at her paintings is a revelatory and ultimately rewarding experience. Adam’s emblematic paintings hold the promise of divested secrets and play with constructions of language through the incorporation of witty titles. (src.

seeing ppl comment with “it’s so complicated tho” “such grey area” “ambiguous” etc re: bombings of gaza n i wonder what is ambiguous or unclear abt a nation murdering another nation in cold blood like what kind of brainwashing or just complete lack of character must you have not to call it what it is, a systematic genocide.

Not really. A bit from the Israeli side, if I may speak for the bad guys. For the past 10 days, Hamas has been firing hundreds of rockets into Israel every day. No Israelis have been killed by those attacks, because Israel has systems for blocking rockets, and a finely tuned system of bomb shelters. However it’s still constant bombardment, and still traumatic and dangerous for Israeli citizens. Israel and Hamas don’t negotiate with one another. None of Israel’s allies negotiate with Hamas. I don’t feel knowledgeable enough in the backstory to fully explain why, but asking Hamas to please stop is not an option. If Israel were to DO NOTHING in response to the rockets, they might as well give up on being a country, because they would not be defending their citizens.

The official goal of Israel’s bombardments and attack on Gaza is to destroy the rockets and rocket facilities so that the rockets stop getting launched into Israel. Some of the rockets are being launched from areas densely populated with civilians. Israel has deemed the loss of those civilian lives worth it for destroying the rockets.

It’s not murder for the sake of murder, or murder based on ethnicity. It is murder, and it is horrible. There might be underlying ethnic/economic/territorial motivation behind the attacks. Some of that motivation is ugly, definitely on the Israeli side. But to say that it’s simple is very offensive. If you think that Israel as an ethnic/religous state is problematic, argue that (I think it might be). But don’t call it simple, because it certainly isn’t.

I know that I’m probs going to be slammed for this. I welcome comments. I might learn something.

ESTP: super attractive physically but it’s all downhill from there. never quite know what they’re going to do next but you can probably bet it will be irresponsible. somehow still lovable.

ESTJ: loud, logical, and get shit done — they are the warrior class of the life rpg….

it would sure be great if ableism weren’t literally so ingrained into our society that 90% of the time when people are insulting a bigot they’ll go for the ableist slurs

Specially designed for the “8 variations for Stradivari” exhibition at Cremona, Italy (May 2013), this style is Kobi’s view of the classic instrument. The brown leather mimics the warmness of carved wood and with “strings” up the heel and S-shaped “holes” on the insole and sole, the transformation into a shoe shape is complete.

Harp Footwear Art by Kobi Levi

This design is inspired by the classic harp. Like the instrument itself, it is shaped around an empty space, where the main details are placed to complete and emphasize the overall look.

I don’t like wearing heels but AWESOME.
