A cold front passed over Palestine and we are expecting another cold front Wednesday. Plants are growing but people are still in disarray and Gaza was bombed (again) using US taxpayer money (that part of the government was not shut down). Refugees and displaced people are in cold rainy dwellings.

We are moving forward with the museum development; it would be much easier in any other country, see our annual reports and plans here: https://www.palestinenature.org/about-us/ .

Two new blogs here reflects our
thoughts:

1) Responding to climate change, protecting the Amazon forest, helping refugee, having justice (a road to peace), fighting racism and greed, fighting a flu, finding meaning in life maybe connected more than we think…..

2) Some interesting FACTOIDS of the modern era:

…Factoid 2: US Secretary of state Pompeo gave a lengthy speech (3593 words) in Cairo. We find no mention of human rights or international law (missing). He mentioned Iran over 30 times (negatively), Israel 13 times (positively), Palestine zero times, and 11 mentions of terrorism or terror (never used for State terrorism). It was likely drafted by the lobby. http://popular-resistance.blogspot.com/2019/01/factoids.html

Stay Human and come visit us in Palestine
