Peace for the un-peace…a pedagogy of oppression

Published by nadiaharhash

Exploring my own Shoes ... somehow my walk , my way ... Being a woman is one thing . One important thing of originally two things. However, living in a global patriarchal dominance makes one thing dominant of another . A lifetime struggle of women resilience for being the one thing they are Women . All the resilience of being a woman is another ONE thing . For being a Moslem woman is another thing . Being a Moslem woman living in an Occupied land is definitely a totally other thing. What if you add divorce to this ? Being a Woman, a Moslem , a Palestinian and Divorced … makes the introduction to living in my shoes… Living in a Shoe of a Woman. PS. English is not my first language.. I know I often need to edit , however, there is something in the power of the 'click send' button.. ever since I did it the first time .. I enjoy clicking directly from my heart...unedited...

  1. Reblogged this on Ned Hamson's Second Line View of the News and commented:
    When tears have dried up from overuse and you can no longer even laugh darkly at the insanity – rage become even easier to trigger. Then the circle of fear and hate can overcome – pull in – the most peaceful Palestinians and Israelis -The author is amazing in that she can still write/talk with reason and compassion.

  2. There is Righteousness in Anger……
    when used correctly it’s a gift that can inspire us to right the injustices of the world.

    Pono is a Hawaiian word commonly rendered as “righteousness”. For instance, the Hawaii state motto:
    Ua Mau ke Ea o ka ʻĀina i ka Pono ….or
    “The Life of the Land is Perpetuated in Righteousness”.
    The word has strong cultural and spiritual connotations of “a state of harmony or balance”, and is the aim of the Hoʻoponopono practice.
    Pono is often used as in affirmative prayers, especially within Kanaka Maoli healing arts and the Hawaiian Sovereignty Movement.

    So, let go of Rage …..

    Anger is not meant to soothe me, or alleviate my boredom, or make me feel better about myself. It is a gift that ought to inspire me to do the things that the world needs, such that I can.
    An anger that is truly righteous……..
    can move mountains.
    Thank you Nadia.
