Beautiful Gaza



This is the breathtaking view from one of my friend's livingroom window. Gaza City at sunset.

Thank you for the pictures and your blog. I spent a few days in Jordan about 10 years ago, and greatly enjoyed Amman (sp?).

I am an American living in Israel for the year, and I enjoy your blog so much. Due to the political situation, I am not able to meet many Palestinians, and I am learning so much from reading about your life in Gaza. Your honesty and ability to describe your day-to-day life is so refreshing.

Peace to you and your family.

Why do so many people choose to close their eyes, hide in their hearts the truth about what "Isreal" did in the past and still does today to the Palestinian People. They STOLE THEIR LAND, AND MURDER THEIR PEOPLE! WAKE UP!!! ITS UNJUST AND DEHUMANIZING, WHY WOULD A PEOPLE WHO HAVE HAD SUCH ATROCITIES DONE ON THEM INFLICT THE SAME ON OTHERS? Sure its great to see Shalom and Salam to you and your family, but give me a break is that the best you have in you, I'll send you a DVD part, I never knew what it was like in Gaza until I read your blog!! Thanks alot. IF YOU REALLY WISH SHALOM AND SALAM TO A PALESTINIAN FAMILY THEN WHY DON'T YOU DO YOUR PART TO END THE OCCUPATION OF PALESTINE? "ISREAL" HAS AN ARMY OF COWARDS BACKED BY THE WORLDS SUPER POWER, PALESTINE HAS STONE THROWERS AND FREEDOM FIGHTERS NOT "TERRORISTS" ARIEL SHARRON AND THE IDF ARE THE TERRORISTS HERE ALONG WITH THEIR FRIEND GEORGE W. WAKE UP PEOPLE AND TAKE ACTION.

Dear Greg Fisher,

I am a filmmaker and the founder of World Stage Pictures
(www.worldstagepictures.com)- which is a
combination of a film society and social commentary forum. Our film
members have 3 Oscar nominations, 10 Emmy Awards, and over 50 feature
films collectively. Besides filmmaking, World Stage is also dedicated to
increasing social awareness: http://www.worldstagepictures.com/stage.htm

We are looking to attract more international contributors to our
political writings page -
http://www.worldstagepictures.com/stage-writings.htm. I came across your blog and would like to invite you to submit an article.

World Stage promotes cross-cultural understanding (and even
misunderstanding) by open exchange. Our contributors are major players in
academia: Prof. William Pinar (Director of the Centre for
Internationalization and Curriculum Studies at University of British
Columbia), Prof. David Kirshner (Dept. of Curriculum and Instruction at
LSU) and everyday people across the globe: Faiza (a 50 year old mother of
3 living in Baghdad), Afghan Warrior (located in Kabul). We are currently
sorting through submissions from bloggers in Iraq, Taiwan, Pakistan,
Russia, and Brazil, among others, which we will start posting next week. Topics range from contemporary politics to social commentary to everyday life, but they all have the common thread of our shared humanity and what it means to live in this world.

We accept submissions in the body of the email (up to 5 pages) on many different topics. Of particular interest are those writings that tie in your situation with the rest of the world (feel free to interpret this frame as widely as you wish). I am available to tell you more about World Stage and answer any questions.

Sincerely,

William Doll

Sorry, I really did not mistake you for Greg Fisher - a missionary living on the border betweeen Ethiopia and Eritrea. But, I do admit to sending both of you the same message.

With best wishes,

William
