Abbas is a traitor to Palestine, a traitor to humanity. Mahmoud Abbas calls for Arab military intervention against Hamas in Gaza

SPDF Day w28: Abbas is traitor, a Tory in the early Americas. Exclusive: In exchange for freed tax funds, PA won’t pursue Israel over settlements at ICC
My reply: "We are dying, and no one considers us worth their very lives to save."
FB: "James, if you die, we all lose. you better stay alive and make them suffer by looking at your tent everyday."
My reply: Until enough of us die, or offer that price, the slaughter in Palestine will continue. This is fact. This is the law of unviolent change. http://jesusgodgoodetcnjay.blogspot.com/2015/03/spdf-day-14-law-of-social-change-is-law.html Until the huge personal price to stop this is paid, or at least offered, it will not stop. This is how social change has always worked and will always work. I've just uploaded this post - http://jesusgodgoodetcnjay.blogspot.com/2015/03/spdf-day-27-person-is-neither-alive-nor.html . I will not have open debates on what I've written of extensively. If someone has enough interest and respect to state deep disagreements with my understanding of history and social change I'll be only too grateful. But views and opinions of such disinterest that they don't bother to hold themeselves to the standards of history and unviolent theory I have zero time nor patience for. I don't guide my own life by 'nothing,' 'opinion,' idle platitudes, and I'll not help enable others to do so, either.
(If the shoe does not fit, don't wear it.) There is very very very good news. I mean that from the bottom of my heart. You are not activists.
Alice Paul and the suffragists alongside her that would pay any price, were activists. There was no personal price that they would not pay to achieve their goal. They did not do what was convenient, they calculated what was necessary, and they paid the price.
That is anathema to todays so called activists. Utterly, explicitly, forecefully forbidden. Literally incomprehensible, today, in the US outside of the few fighting global warming by placing and keeping their very lives in the way of Ecocide. These exceptions prove the rule.
There are no activists today.
There were activists in Tahrir Square several years ago. There was no personal price they would not pay to achieve their goal. They expected it would cost their very lives these young people. Exactly because they were willing to pay that price the onlookers of the world could not stand to see that price exacted and rose and demanded of the leaders of the world that their lives be saved by meeting their demands. And they were.
There was only one group for whom Gandhi had utter contempt and that was those who would not happily risk or give their own lives when justice demanded it. I've written weeks ago of the law of social change which is the law of paying the price, the law of suffering. This is an immutable law. And yet for the last 40 or 50 years those that call themselves activists, the most educated in our society, almost always from affluent or relatively affluent backgrounds, are in ferocious, catatonic, psychotic, clinical denial of this law.
It is said that patriotism is the refuge of scoundrels. No, activism in the United States since the late sixties is the refuge of scoundrels. It is where one goes for zero personal accountability, the approval of one's peers in excoriating anyone and everyone except those in the same group, holding oneself and ones group to 0 standards, certainly not the historical standards of true activism, and certainly not the standards of results.
The Washington DC not many years ago there was Ngo after Ngo, activist after activist, rapturously involved in historically doomed,, tepid, comfortable, self serving 'activism' to supposedly Save Darfur.
Fact, the leading such group, "Save Darfur," was headed by a pleasant fellow. At times that I deemed it constructive and appropriate I clearly, honestly, forthrightly and vehimintly confronted the total hopelessness, the total inadequacy, of the strategies and tactics that were being attempted by this group.And indeed, as was patently obvious to anyone that WANTED to see the truth... they saved not one Darfuri, but they had a nice time, got lots of press, had nice confortable jobs for years, added to their resumes, got credit on their college degrees....
Several years later I saw the head of this preeminent Save Darfur group outside a supermarket. Actually, he saw me and wanted to speak. To his credit he said to me, why were you so hard on us? I said, just as when a Dr. hangs out a shingle proclaiming that they are a Dr., thereby setting life and death expectations for those who choose to enter, you did the same by calling your group Save Darfur. You set an expectation that impacted millions of people and yet you planned and attempted nothing that would ever come close to saving those people. This is a moral problem that I had a duty to those brothers and sisters in Darfur to attempt to confront. This is a moral failing I had a duty to you to try and bring to your clear attention, and I felt that you were not seeing it, as a result of active denial or otherwise.
Again, to his credit, he replied with astonishing candor, James, he said, I had no idea how to save the people in Darfur. I give him credit for the candor, but he still had no idea the horror of what he was saying. And I find him completely representative of the activism in the United States, or what considers itself activism, be it for stopping global warming, preserving some shred of democracy, or freeing the Palestinians while there is still a living Palestinian left.
The left in the United States adores excoriating the right in this country for their denial, especially in the subject area of global warming. The denial on the right is nothing compared to the denial on the left of their own irresponsibility, non-solidarity with those they purport to be fighting for, lip service, self serving efforts that have the certainty of not achieving the stated goals but only of serving the egos and other gratifications of the so called activists.
The left's denial near incomprehensible. This is not slender from me. This is not condemnation. It is an opportunity to seriously consider it, thereby it is an offer of liberation.
King, Gandhi, any and all of the true activists, in their own way lived, believed, and articulated that someone that would not risk their very life, happily, in the service of justice for their fellow human being, was already Dead. None of the 2015 activists that I see are anything of the sort.
None or few are hypocrites on purpose. They've been taught and learned well a lie. They've been taught a means of behavior that is not activism, but they've been told in word and deed for 40 or 50 years that it is.
If King, Gandhi, Jesus, and the like are correct that cowardice is living death, and by my life and words I believe that they are, then I am not slandering, I'm attempting as they did, to offer Life, to the activist, and to those they think they are serving..
A person is not living who is not ready to give their life for the justice of their fellow human beings, to paraphrase Dr. King.

A FB acquaintance #1 commented: "I think it would be pointless to die given the realization that only Soldiers are willing to sacrifice themselvesunless certain members of Congress were engaged in sustained relationship and dialogue with you."
My reply: "So that mistakenly I don't dismiss your comment as pointless, cowardly, delusional, denialist, and idiotic, please share with me so me of the history of unviolent change and unviolent change theory that supports your comment. Thanks."
FB party #2 commented: "I'll just throw in here that FB #1 has spent the last couple years of his life full time engaged in nonviolent action, mostly in the form of offering communication with the evil ones (to put it bluntly)."
My reply: "I made no comment on #1. Why do you suggest I did? I asked a question about his comment. Address yourself to that."

SPDF Day 26: My goal is not to die. My goal is that Palestinians not die, and I'll GLADLY pay any personal price for that goal. I'm happy if that price is the ultimate price for me.
As I wrote several weeks ago, this Death Fast is correct for me in this time of complete and utter hopelessness for my Palestine Family. In such complete darkness, complete hopelessness, objectively, based on all the self-serving, self-gratifying, hopeless, meaningless US 'activist' Free Palestine efforts... this Death Fast against such utter bleakness 'could' be seen at some time after my death, and awaken a few, to the only action that could be CERTAIN to Free Palestine, in sufficient numbers, and then to stop the descent of US into Fascism, and Ecocide.
If that utter bleakness dissipates beyond a point, this Death Fast by just one, me, would be throwing away life to no purpose. In a completely dark room, even a huge one, a tiny candle can be seen from anywhere in the room. But if the darkness is dispelled, it cannot.
I'd be GLAD to have this Death Fast terminate my life.
I'd be GLAD to find out that a Real Dawn, aggressive, determined, committed, urgent Obama Admin efforts... was breaking for Palestine.
I'd NOT be GLAD, but I'd recognize and possibly respond to... a 'possible,' 'perceived,' 'uncertain' dawn... such as the news that France is planning to reintroduce a 'Palestinian State' resolution in the UN, and that the US is 'planning' to go after AIPAC, and support a UN resolution.
If these dispel, for good or ill, the utter darkness of the moment, I'll be forced to consider terminating this Death Fast to avoid throwing away one of the only True US Activists that my Palestine has.
The potential harbingers of such 'light pollution,' if not true Light, that I see, the potentially Strategically important news, I' post on this site.
NOTE: If, as there would be, if there were Real Activists in the US, there were 100, or 1000 of us doing what I am, Death Fast... first to Free Palestine, then to save Democracy by getting the money out, then to stop Ecocide... then the above would be less of a factor, if any at all. 100 candles can be seen even in a semi-lighted room. But one cannot.
nd. SPDF Day 26: Even without opposition in the US Congress BDS cannot stop the slaughter of Palestine, but everyone is acting as though it could. It has a minor role to play. Most of Israel's economy is weapons and high technology that cannot be touched by boycott. They have Adelson and other billionaires willing to pay the companies that would otherwise be hurt by BDS. It is criminal denial that the free Palestine activists pretend that BDS is the answer rather than a tiny part of the solution.

***** SPDF Day 25: Chris Hedges - These armies of [educated liberals] serve a corporate system that will quite literally kill us
Christopher Browning’s collection of essays, “The Path to Genocide,” notes that it was the “moderate,” “normal” bureaucrats, not the zealots, who made the Holocaust possible. Germaine Tillion pointed out “the tragic easiness [during the Holocaust] with which ‘decent’ people could become the most callous executioners without seeming to notice what was happening to them.” The Russian novelist Vasily Grossman in his book “Forever Flowing” observed that “the new state did not require holy apostles, fanatic, inspired builders, faithful, devout disciples. The new state did not even require servants—just clerks.”
“The most nauseating type of S.S. were to me personally the cynics who no longer genuinely believed in their cause, but went on collecting blood guilt for its own sake,” wrote Dr. Ella Lingens-Reiner in “Prisoners of Fear,” her searing memoir of Auschwitz. “Those cynics were not always brutal to the prisoners, their behavior changed with their mood. They took nothing seriously—neither themselves nor their cause, neither us nor our situation. One of the worst among them was Dr. Mengele, the Camp Doctor I have mentioned before. When a batch of newly arrived Jews was being classified into those fit for work and those fit for death, he would whistle a melody and rhythmically jerk his thumb over his right or his left shoulder—which meant ‘gas’ or ‘work.’ He thought conditions in the camp rotten, and even did a few things to improve them, but at the same time he committed murder callously, without any qualms.”
These armies of bureaucrats serve a corporate system that will quite literally kill us. They are as cold and disconnected as Mengele. They carry out minute tasks. They are docile. Compliant. They obey. They find their self-worth in the prestige and power of the corporation, in the status of their positions and in their career promotions. They assure themselves of their own goodness through their private acts as husbands, wives, mothers and fathers. They sit on school boards. They go to Rotary. They attend church. It is moral schizophrenia. They erect walls to create an isolated consciousness. They make the lethal goals of ExxonMobil or Goldman Sachs or Raytheon or insurance companies possible. They destroy the ecosystem, the economy and the body politic and turn workingmen and -women into impoverished serfs. They feel nothing. Metaphysical naiveté always ends in murder. It fragments the world. Little acts of kindness and charity mask the monstrous evil they abet. And the system rolls forward. The polar ice caps melt. The droughts rage over cropland. The drones deliver death from the sky. The state moves inexorably forward to place us in chains. The sick die. The poor starve. The prisons fill. And the careerist, plodding forward, does his or her job.

Big-Hearted Chef Serves Up 1 Millionth Free Meal in California
Young Gandhi was in the process of becoming a lawyer . But he encountered two books that caused his life to do a 180 when he was a young man studying in England. One of the books was Tolstoy's "The Kingdom of God is Within You." The other was .four essays actually, by John Ruskin . An idea that was central to those essays was the assessment that the the British population could be best understood as being comprised of five groups, Doctors ,lawyers, Ministers, soldiers, Merchants. What was considered most important in these essays was that four of the five groups could be expected to give their lives for their clients when circumstances called for it. But that one of the populations, merchants, could be depended on to never do so, and to only serve their own selfish interests. Thereby they were considered a cancer on society, by other words than these.
In 2015 American these essays would clearly have the state that no population any longer existed, with the possible exception of soldiers, who would die for anything but themselves .
This is why there is no hope to save Palestine, to stop ecocide, to save the last remaining remnants of democracy or any economic life worth living in America.

My reply: "I have an impossibly strong body and have learned to turn my being entirely over to the Family Emergency Response - the most powerful force in the Universe, by whatever name or no name at all. But having been on many hunger strikes, and witnessed others, like the Great Diane Wilson, within the first 10 days it is very tough as the body learns to consume itself. Then, until day 30 or so one is usually quite functional, tho weak. Stuff starts getting dangerous after day 30, although I'm very fortunate this time, 1st time ever, to have a doc checking my blood chem. Stuff like blindness sometimes happens after day 30, tho numerous times I've gone to 50 with no such effects.
Friend: "Wow. I knew you had years of experience but didn't think about how that experience would be helpful now."
My Reply: "Oh, my entire life has been preparation for this campaign. Creating and Demonstrating the Death Fast, the last chance for Humanity, is what I was born for."
Friend: "Our mutual associate posed the question, 'what would it take to get me to join the Death Fast." I would have to be called to do it. So far I have not been called to that specific action. I was called to walk along the KXL, and to start this farm, and I'm listening. You, Start Loving, have obviously been called, that is why i t gives you such joy.
My Reply: I only EVER do what I am Called to do. And I am ALWAYS called to do what is the best way for me to serve the most of the world's suffering... in that instant. The Family Emergency Response. This is the ONLY call any of us can get, that is genuine. Anything else is a misunderstanding.

"A Reading of The Letter From Birmingham Jail" – Before the Dream... There was a Letter... from Kirwan Institute on Vimeo.
FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HISTORY a non-fiction film commemorating Martin Luther King, Jr.‘s famous “Letter from Birmingham Jail.” No longer will the Letter from Birmingham Jail be in the SHADOW of the "I Have a Dream" speech.
The film stars community leaders of Columbus, Ohio and educators and leaders of The Ohio State University. The Letter from Birmingham Jail is an open letter written on April 16, 1963, by Martin Luther King, Jr. The letter defends the strategy of nonviolent resistance to racial discrimination, arguing that people have a moral responsibility to break unjust laws. After an early setback, it enjoyed widespread publication and became a key text for the American civil rights movement of the early 1960s.

***** After Obama-Netanyahu dustup, no changes so far in U.S. support for Israel at the United Nations
My reply: Yes, 'alive IS better!!!!!!' That is exactly the point. Every day for the last 20 or so one Palestinian every three days, EVERY THREE DAYS, has their life savagely taken by our US backed Israeli goon squads. Every two years or so our US funded, armed, backed... Israeli goon squads go in and 'mow the lawn,' and 'remove the top soil,' that is slaughter, as the most powerful military in the world, a defenseless indigenous population of children, women and men. This last time it was 500 children, 1500 adults. This next time, and everyone knows it is coming with 18 months, could be 2,000, 20,000, 200,0000. These Naziesque Israelis know no limits thanks to the criminal enabling of we US CITIZENS these last 68 years. And much much much much worse. 7 million Palestinians have been deprived of Life by we enabling Americans for 68 years now... LIVING DEATH... in refugee camps, and worse, the open air, LITERAL PRISONS... of the West Bank and Gaza... ZERO HUMAN RIGHTS. ZERO HUMAN RIGHTS. ZERO HUMAN RIGHTS.... LIVING DEATH. ROBED OF LIFE BY WE WALKING DEAD AMERICANS.
AND IF ONE SURVEYS AND DEEPLY CONSIDERS the in-actions of the Obama Administration, the US Free Palestine 'activists,' the European Free Palestine 'activists,' the invisibility, distortion, lies... spewed by the US Zionist Controlled Media... regarding the otherwise HEROIC Resistance of the Palestinians... THERE IS CURRENTLY ZERO HOPE, ZERO HOPE, FOR EVEN ONE OF MY PALESTINIANS TO BE ALIVE. ZERO.
That is unacceptable to me. I can at least save one. I am sure of it. One can be alive if I die. And that is enough for me.
Yes, 'alive IS better!!!!!!' And from what I can see, other than the International Solidarity Movement, I may be the only person in the US that believes in every cell in my body that 'alive IS better!!!!!!' And with infinite Joy and Peace of Heart, EVERY BREATH, I'll give mine now that even just one of them may be 'alive,' sometime, in the next 20 years, who otherwise would not be. I can't think of, I can't see, anything on earth I'd rather do, or have ever done, in my 63 years. Why can't you see that?
And the Death Fast, as I've written elsewhere, is the ONLY WEAPON that can save all of creation, stopping ecocide that at this moment is 100% NOT being stopped in time, and to stop the currently unopposed take over by the Oligarchs, the Corporate Fascists, of America, rolling back American human rights to the 1800's... for centuries.... a dark ages.
My reply: "Hi. I never try to control another person. Ever. But I do control my time, as is my duty to G_d. All I have to say about my health is here - . My health is my Palestinian Family, my flesh and blood .Their health is mine. I have none other, and right now, no one is saving them. They and I are Dead."
vid. Muslims are Terrorists. 3 min......... In my experience the most Godly small group on earth are the Jews (the Zionists are the antithesis). The most Godly Large group I've found are the Muslims (ISIS, Boko Haram, al Qaieda are the antithesis).
They do nothing important in their own personal lives that does not start with the question, what will it take to succeed?. But when it comes to their dogooder activities for people really in need, they never find the courage, the morality, the humanity, to grant to these victims the benefit that they always granted to themselves and to those near to them, that question, what would it take? What price would have to be paid? What sacrificed would have to be made?.
When one asks that question with reference to stopping the slaughter of Palestinians while there are still Palestinians to save, or if one asks that question rather relative to stopping ecocide, or saving the last vestiges of any decent American government, any shred of democracy, before the police state makes doing so a process that would take decades or hundreds of years, there is one answer, and one answer only, that comes forth: death fast.
All three of the Armageddon's I just mentioned are so imminent that Marches, lobbying Congress, face book and social media campaigns, fund raising, periodic undignified rantings at Congress, rallies, and other such activities are categorically way too little way too late. In a very important earlier post I spoke of the law of social change which is the law of paying the price. Essentially, social change happens when a relatively small group of innocents pays such an enormous personal price, or risks doing so, that the masses of onlookers of goodwill cannot stand the pain, and mobilize and militantly demand of government representatives that these deaths be prevented by meeting the demands of this Vanguard.
Prior techniques of paying this price are no longer sufficiently effective in the United States because the system has rendered them relatively impotent. The system has become expert at demonizing activists, infiltrating and discrediting them, causing them to be ignored by the media; businesses that could be boycotted are so gargantuan that attempts to do so are laughable rather than understood to be heroic. Self immolation is not understood, it has never been understood in the United States although Dr. King understood it and it was seeing a Monk self immolate in Vietnam that caused him to speak against the war. But such exceptions cannot be counted on.
One can argue about the number, but there is a number of citizens that if they were in a dignified, disciplined, serious, committed death fast, here on capitol hill fasting unto death until the U.S. government stopped enabling Israel and held them to standards of international law, thereby stopping the slaughter of Palestinians and restoring to the Palestinians their human rights to which they are due by every legal and human measure, there is a number, 500, of 1000, 10,000 in waves... that would cause such an outcry of agony from millions of bystanders around the country and the world, that the house and the senate would be forced to meet their demands.
No one of any honesty or humanity or decency can dispute this. They can argue how many. It would matter the age and race. 500 white college students would count for 5000 old folks like me. 100 middle schoolers would kill for 500 college students. And so on.
You don't have, and are not pursuing, anything that will work so basically your activism is self gratification, obscuring the fact that you do not have a solution, that you are not saving the Palestinians or democracy or stopping ecocide, so thereby you hide that fact because by acting you imply you do have a solution further keeping onlookers on the sidelines, lulling them into a deadly sense of security, and thereby murdering the very people and causes that you purport to stand for.
