Céad Míle Fáilte ~ A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

Here we seek a rest in the shade, some cool water and a little kindness. This blog is dedicated to peace, truth, justice and a post- industrial, post-petroleum illumined world in spite of all odds against it. I very much like the line about the ancient knight (see poem below) "His helmet now shall make a hive for bees" It is reminiscent of "beating swords into ploughshares" a sentiment I heartily approve of. Thank you for visiting ~ I hope you return!

100,000+ March in Spain to Protest Gaza Attacks

Why is the disturbing pattern of humans who have been abused and victimized to, when given power over others, replicate their abuser's habits,asserting itself here? Israel of all nations should be wary of turning a ghetto into a concentration camp and letting bloodlust against a racial group guide their war policy.

From the Associated Press

QUOTE MADRID, Spain: More than 100,000 people marched through Spain's capital and other cities Sunday calling for Israel to announce an immediate cease-fire in Gaza.
The protest in Madrid was the largest of demonstrations across Europe expressing both support and opposition for the Israeli offensive in Gaza.
Protesters filled downtown boulevards carrying banners saying "Peace," "SOS Gaza," placards with the word "Gaza" above a red-stained hand and mock blood-spattered bodies of children.
Oscar-winning actor Javier Bardem's mother Pilar, also an actress, was among speakers who addressed the crowd.
"The Spanish government has to do something. The Gaza Strip is now practically a concentration camp," she said.
