From Jordan To Gaza UPDATED

December 31, 2008

Update 11: Faith Restored

We began a 48-hour food and clothing drive to help our sisters and brothers in Gaza last Sunday, naively underestimating the generosity of our People. For five hours on Tuesday, we gathered food, clothing, and anything donated in the Cosmo parking lot. Today, five days later, we are happy to announce that the donate items have been sorted, packed, and are en route to Gaza. Two trucks have already made it into Gaza, with more on the way as we speak. We had over 400 volunteers mobilized over the past few days. In a coming post we'll attempt to thank everyone. Our faith in the generosity of the human spirit, the will to accept a task and finish, not to mention the enduring dedication of many, all led to a successful...

Failed Leadership

December 29, 2008

Photo Credit: Wikipedia Commons
Written By: Musa Al-Shuqairi Hamas form of resistance failed to achieve substantial results and placed the population it presided over in an impossible situation. Leaving the heavy-hearted emotions and condolences aside for a moment, one cannot help but wonder what was/is the Hamas leadership plan (hoping they have one). 
So assuming that Hamas is sticking to the resistance route (a route that has unlimited support, despite the huge suspicions about the commitment of the Islamic political factions to it), doesn’t resistance need a clear plan with: (a) Objectives (b) Execution methods and (c) Potential calculated results, to qualify as a legitimate resistance movement?
 Going through the Hamas trail of thoughts, the resistance latest (and sole) technique of firing home-made rockets (whatever those are) supposedly serve the following purposes: - Announcing to the Zionists that we are committed to the route of military encounters and armed struggle...

Video | Young Jordanians Protest The Gaza Attacks

December 28, 2008



Words & Video: Naseem Tarawnah

In one of many protests that were held yesterday almost moments after of victims in Gaza began airing on television, hundreds of young protesters took to the streets of Amman's Shmisani district, originating from Professional Associations Complex. It was almost by mere coincidence that I came upon the march, as the crowds piling up in the streets brought traffic to the already-congested Shmisani area to a full stop. I noticed riot police unloading by the dozens and in the distance, large Palestinian flags were bring waved in the cold December air. Fortunately, I managed to catch up with the protest on the fourth circle as they marched to the gates of the Prime Minister's office. Police had quarantined the area, and stood frozen, almost equaling the protesters in numbers. Upon arriving I heard that the police did attack several women...
