I’ve been besieged by too many sentiments regarding the election. It’s a travesty. It’s a tragic hoax.
They say that this is a FREE and FAIR ELECTION. What is free in this?
This is all just a farce.
Where shall the vote go then?
Should the vote go to ‘ABSTAIN’? Or will voting for ABSTAIN be a detrimental move–for it denigrates the best candidate available and exalts the conservative opposition instead?
Choose between the two: Abstain or the Lesser Evil?
Go on, choose.
What if we abstain from voting at all?
What if we end the game and we, the people, abstain from the charade?
Go on, choose.
Interested about Iran’s upcoming presidential elections? View this primer, provided by Al Jazeera English. Iran has always been a country full of enigma. From the reign of the Pahlavi, down to the 1979 Revolution, up to the current regime, Iran has been besieged by different faces, and degrees, of absolutism. It has always been a battle of ideology–a battle of who gets to enforce, and maintain, their ideology (be it liberating or repressive) upon a people.
JUNE 14 ELECTION!
In Ramallah, Palestine, 70 liters of water/day is allotted for each Palestinian in the West Bank. Meanwhile, 300 liters of water/day is allotted for each Israeli (including settlers). The Israeli state controls all major water sources in the West Bank and determines how much water Palestinians can use.
Humane? Just? Equitable? NO.

Once again, the “Visualizing Palestine” team has released another infographic. I am sharing this in order to help raise more awareness about the injustices happening in Palestine. Of course however, more than awareness, ACTION must be taken upon. The Israeli state may continuously pursue acts of injustice (along with the support of its powerful allies) but, it must be known that so long as repression continues, resistance shall go on as well.
As more and more people, from around the world, realize how disturbingly alarming the injustices are in Palestine, the time will come, I believe, that these occupiers will soon be defeated. The time will come when children like Gibreel can enjoy a life of peace and freedom, under the canopy of a thousand olive trees.
Here is what “Visualizing Palestine” has to say about this infographic:
“Bil’in has been one of nine Palestinian villages engaged in regular demonstrations against the Israeli wall, which continues to be built despite being declared illegal by the International Court of Justice in 2004. Bilin’s community have been conducting weekly nonviolent protests against the annexation of their land, the building of settlements and the destruction of their farmland, all the time facing violence from the Israeli military and settlers, and indiscriminate raids and arrests in their village.
