That time of year.

I was getting all excited that my first Blogaversary is coming up this July 5th -- I think I've been posting interesting, compelling content...visitors keep dropping by, and I'm having fun with my blog.

Then it hit me like a ton of bricks after I received an email this morning from Anita Tucker. See, I started blogging just before the Disengagement...and that means, it's almost a year to the Disengagement. I've seen this video going around the jblogosphere a bit, but since Anita Tucker sent it to me, and I know her...I'm posting it here as well.

Anita lived in Gush Katif...in Netzer Chazani for 29 years, and her life has been turned upside down since the Disengagement.

She asked that I post this...and that you watch it. It's the least I can do...



More about this movie can be found here.


Wherever I am, my blog turns towards Eretz Yisrael

Good of you to post this Jameel. And happy blogiversary - even if last summer brings back bitter memories. Were you at Kfar Meimon?

Jameel @ The Muqata said...

WBM: Thanks. No, my wife and I were in the delivery room during Kfar Maimon...we watched it on TV though.

The following week though, I was in Chomesh with the other kids.

The Sabra: Don't get madder...just help speak out to prevent another disengagement from taking place.

Jack: Thanks. I'll be blogging more about this over the next few days.

it makes me so sad to realize that all that beauty is now being inhabited by filthy disgusting animals. I would really like to watch the whole movie. how do I do that?

Jameel @ The Muqata said...

Rebecca: As much as I'm saddened, and angered by the disengagement, there's really no reason at all to resort to name calling of the arabs who live there.

See the link on the website underneath the movie - all the info is there.

wow, sorry if I offended you. I guess you are on a much higher level that I am that you can feel that way. Good for you!
