It’s frustrating watching a news report which hits all the right spots and says all the right words and mentions that Israel targets children - instead of claiming children were collateral damage - but they finish off by calling it a ‘war’ and saying ‘Hamas will fire rockets into Israel tonight and Israel will respond' We're getting there. There's progress.
|dada /ˈdɑːdɑː/ or Dadaism was an art movement of the European avant-garde in the early 20th century. Many claim Dada began in Zurich, Switzerland in 1916, spreading to Berlin shortly thereafter but the height of New York Dada was the year before, in 1915. To quote Dona Budd's The Language of Art Knowledge,|
|Dada was born out of negative reaction to the horrors of World War I. This international movement was begun by a group of artists and poets associated with the Cabaret Voltaire in Zurich. Dada rejected reason and logic, prizing nonsense, irrationality and intuition. The origin of the name Dada is unclear; some believe that it is a nonsensical word. Others maintain that it originates from the Romanian artists Tristan Tzara's and Marcel Janco's frequent use of the words "da, da," meaning "yes, yes" in the Romanian language. Another theory says that the name "Dada" came during a meeting of the group when a paper knife stuck into a French-German dictionary happened to point to 'dada', a French word for 'hobbyhorse'.|
|The movement primarily involved visual arts, literature, poetry, art manifestoes, art theory, theatre, and graphic design, and concentrated its anti-war politics through a rejection of the prevailing standards in art through anti-art cultural works. In addition to being anti-war, Dada was also anti-bourgeois and had political affinities with the radical left.|
On a slightly different, but related, note, observations about the “futility” of rocket fire are short-sighted; Palestinian resistance did not start yesterday and will not end tomorrow. The path to liberation is, as “path” suggests, a process rather than a point that exists in the singular….
Today a lady came up to us and started saying how 3 boys were killed in Israel and they’re avenging them by bombing gaza. And how if it was her son she would want the same. We told her how 197 Palestinians died and she kept repeating ‘3 boys were killed’.
Firstly, almost 200 Palestinians don’t…
There’s no proof that any Palestinian/Palestinian faction carried out the killings of the three settlers, let alone Gaza being responsible for their deaths. There whole logic for the massacre against Gaza doesn’t make sense.
