Bonjour! Who doesn't know why individuals, corporations, and countries, through peacing and waring on each other, think they garner delusional profits and delusional pleasures? No one, for, they think they garner because destruction and murder are sociologically defined as profit and pleasure; determining that as people's context for perception and experience!

Why are news reports providing almost none of the political context and historical background that would make the Israeli-Palestinian conflict meaningful to viewers, is beyond me? How do you account for the
Glasgow University Media Group's finding that the public's "lack of understanding, and indeed misunderstanding, was compounded by "the TV news
reports"? Also, why does their coverage consistently portray the US as a peacemaker in the conflict, when, for example, the US has consistently opposed a peaceful
solution by vetoing UN Security Council resolutions and calls for the introduction of independent peace-keeping troops? As well, why do the supposed news give the impression that Palestinians are primarily responsible for initiating the violence, with
Israelis merely retaliating? Fair and direct questions, the public deserves to be answered by all.

For all you do and don't, these peace related twigs of the poetree are for you :)

rhahm/
Is man deserted in the Middle East?
Does it bleed him as we bleed the earth,
The fouling of one sky always following?
How could the sons of Isaac and Ishmael,
So, not remember their way? Thinking
They're choosing peacing and warring on
Each other for delusional profits, pleasures,
While sanguine sands mark their real loss
Of life, humanities' loss of time.

Wasn't it written, God is watching and
We are returning, as the home of heart
In a child beckons the man that becomes?
Isn't it so, our souls call to us in silences?

Yet, the military machine rolls. What is,
Or could be, heard by any above this?
A woman martyr, 18, imploded by the lies
Taught to her from U.S. written, donated
Textbooks, explodes, taking hers and
Others lives from us. Same as the shining
Sun seems to divine famine.

Here clouds relent, watering soil,
Cleansing spiritually, some mind's eyes.
While the media's constant chides of,
"You're not the earth, reality isn't your
Womb, rather, a tomb divined",
Though, only smoke and mirrors, divide.

Yet, the life indivisible defies, a flower
Blossoms, Michaelangelos roll by,
An avian's trill still rings true.
So, what of me and you?

Will we allow individual injustices to go
Unchallenged, devolving into global ones?
Our freedoms to wither, for, we didn't
Exercise our responsibilities? Deaths
Dirge to purge our evolutionary calling?
Manifest destinies rag to drag us through
Their mud, determining the unactuation
Of life, our and large mammals extinction?

Or, will birdsong be sung
Of what we've done?
Let not the only tear to eye be their
Destined flood. Let our sojourns longing
Redefine the sublime in mornings
Awakening. Let life at humanities' hearth
Grow, our being veracity and loving sow.

responsibility/
If you don't exercise it,
Its Siamese sister, freedom,
Will wither, as well.

Manners/
In which doings and not doings
Are done or aren't,
Brings life and light to them,
Or it doesn't.

ends or means/
Neither do I embrace.
Rather, the struggle well run,
Which uplifts us uncrowned,
Every moment humans race!

Injustices/
Addressing, not addressing them have costs,
One is individual, the other is global.

clarity/
Sword that cuts all ways,
Without, for, there's no cutting;
And a pointless point.

EDEN?/
Splitting of atom,
Cloning of adam, hubris;
Leads to extinction.

Five Easy Pieces/
To thine own self be who, and
While you're being what you are,
Stray not from this, your unfolding
Path and heart :) where, how and
Why; forever unanswered.

gray/
Those more attached to
Living or dying
Are more closely death.

rhahm, Sufi for womb. Viva la evolution! Copy, share as you will. Enjoy a vernal eve' as you can. i look forward...

Matutinally Yours, james m nordlund reality (aja) :)
