Robin Williams - (21 julho de 1951 - 11 de agosto de 2014)

Sad news..

Now, my co-mates and brothers in exile,
Hath not old custom made this life more sweet
Than that of painted pomp? Are not these woods
More free from peril than the envious court?
Here feel we not the penalty of Adam,
The seasons' difference, as the icy fang
And churlish chiding of the winter’s wind,
Which, when it bites and blows upon my body,
Even till I shrink with cold, I smile and say,
“This is no flattery. These are counselors
That feelingly persuade me what I am.”
Sweet are the uses of adversity,
Which, like the toad, ugly and venomous,
Wears yet a precious jewel in his head.
And this our life, exempt from public haunt,
Finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks,
Sermons in stones, and good in everything.   

 I would not change it .


Now cracks a noble heart.—Good night, sweet prince,
And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest!—

Temos novamente festa no Estoril? No Hotel..?

Alguém me pode explicar, assim bem explicadinho, a razão do Sr. Salgado, agora, após ter sido detido por umas horitas ontem passar a ter como sua guarda, a Mossad?

Era só para saber..


 Ainda me recordo muito bem de ir tocar, no "mais estranho grupo de casamentos", nome de conjunto dado pela minha alma gémea, com quem toquei mais um ex e alguns amigos, no hotel Palace, no Estoril, onde no meio de momentos com música erudita, jazz e ligeira, se percorria as salas e se imaginava a era da espionagem, do tempo da Grande Guerra, conversando de forma  viva sobre tal era e sobre certos episódios entre outras coisas.

Imagine: not just the music written by J. Lennon - regarding war, peace and the Middle East.

A copy of the letter written by Einstein to England and America, supported and undersigned by many/most prominent leading Jews, warning of the creation of Israel under Zionism, but ignored; Einstein Letter Warning Of Zionist Facism In Israel

(Link - to the Original Document)

Letter by Albert Einstein Sent to the New York Times

In 1948, Protesting the Visit of Menachem Begin

Letters to the Editor
New York Times

December 4, 1948

Among the most disturbing political phenomena of our times is the emergence in the newly created state of Israel of the "Freedom Party" (Tnuat Haherut), a political party closely akin in its organization, methods, political philosophy and social appeal to the Nazi and Fascist parties. It was formed out of the membership and following of the former Irgun Zvai Leumi, a terrorist, right-wing, chauvinist organization in Palestine.
The current visit of Menachem Begin, leader of this party, to the United States is obviously calculated to give the impression of American support for his party in the coming Israeli elections, and to cement political ties with conservative Zionist elements in the United States. Several Americans of national repute have lent their names to welcome his visit. It is inconceivable that those who oppose fascism throughoutthe world, if correctly informed as to Mr. Begin's political record and perspectives, could add their names and support to the movement he represents.

Before irreparable damage is done by way of financial contributions, public manifestations in Begin's behalf, and the creation in Palestine of the impression that a large segment of America supports Fascist elements in Israel, the American public must be informed as to the record and objectives of Mr. Begin and his movement. The public avowals of Begin's party are no guide whatever to its actual character. Today they speak of freedom, democracy and anti-imperialism, whereas until recently they openly preached the doctrine of the Fascist state. It is in its actions that the terrorist party betrays its real character; from its past actions we can judge what it may be expected to do in the future.

Attack on Arab Village

A shocking example was their behavior in the Arab village of Deir Yassin. This village, off the main roads and surrounded by Jewish lands, had taken no part in the war, and had even fought off Arab bands who wanted to use the village as their base. On April 9 (THE NEW YORK TIMES), terrorist bands attacked this peaceful village, which was not a military objective in the fighting, killed most of its inhabitants ? 240men, women, and children - and kept a few of them alive to parade as captives through the streets of Jerusalem. Most of the Jewish community was horrified at the deed, and the Jewish Agency sent a telegram of apology to King Abdullah of Trans-Jordan. But the terrorists, far from being ashamed of their act, were proud of this massacre, publicized it widely, and invited all the foreign correspondents present in the country to view the heaped corpses and the general havoc at Deir Yassin. The Deir Yassin incident exemplifies the character and actions of the Freedom Party.

Within the Jewish community they have preached an admixture of ultranationalism, religious mysticism, and racial superiority. Like other Fascist parties they have been used to break strikes, and have themselves pressed for the destruction of free trade unions. In their stead they have proposed corporate unions on the Italian Fascist model. During the last years of sporadic anti-British violence, the IZL and Stern groups inaugurated a reign of terror in the Palestine Jewish community. Teachers were beaten up for speaking against them, adults were shot for not letting their children join them. By gangster methods, beatings, window-smashing, and wide-spread robberies, the terrorists intimidated the population and exacted a heavy tribute.

The people of the Freedom Party have had no part in the constructive achievements in Palestine. They have reclaimed no land, built no settlements, and only detracted from the Jewish defense activity. Their much-publicized immigration endeavors were minute, and devoted mainly to bringing in Fascist compatriots.

Discrepancies Seen

The discrepancies between the bold claims now being made by Begin and his party, and their record of past performance in Palestine bear the imprint of no ordinary political party. This is the unmistakable stamp of a Fascist party for whom terrorism (against Jews, Arabs, and British alike), and misrepresentation are means, and a "Leader State" is the goal.

In the light of the foregoing considerations, it is imperative that the truth about Mr. Begin and his movement be made known in this country. It is all the more tragic that the top leadership of American Zionism has refused to campaign against Begin's efforts, or even to expose to its own constituents the dangers to Israel from support to Begin.

The undersigned therefore take this means of publicly presenting a few salient facts concerning Begin and his party; and of urging all concerned not to support this latest manifestation of fascism.





























New York, Dec. 2, 1948



also regarding the subject

The July 9, 2004 Int’l Court of Justice (ICJ) ruling (14 to 1) on the Legal Consequences of the Construction of a Wall in the Occupied Palestinian Territory – for which they also had to address and make a rulling on each of the issues below.

1. Israel must withdraw from occupied Palestinian territory - including Gaza, West Bank, and East Jerusalem to June 1967 borders.

2. Remove all of Israeli settlements. Every one of them is deemed illegal by Int’l law thru both UN and ICJ.

3. Allow the right of return of Palestinian refugees to their homeland in the occupied territories.

4. Israel and Palestine both have the right to exist as 2 separate states. This must be recognized by each and by neighboring states.

5. The Wall Israel built in West Bank must be removed. This is actually why this case went to ICJ in the first place.

Imagine there's no countries It isn't hard to do Nothing to kill or die for And no religion too Imagine all the people living life in peace You, you may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one I hope some day you'll join us           And the world will be as one  " 
Regarding news, actions horrifically ocurring among other terrible dealings presently in Gaza, I say this:        Each child taken thus is a tear, a relentless tear upon the soul of the 'Most Merciful' - upon mankind's eternal soul, beauty and the face of Love itself.
Wishing all a safe and if possible, happy week.
Take care.
