Think I may know who the Blogit-ta provocateur is...

Which Bloggers do You Hate??

Hello, Remember me?..:)

Feeling like Earth herself these days: storm shattered and stripped down to roots and rock, but still fertile, pliable and wanting to grow flowers everywhere I awaken.. Hi Guys! Been caught up in toxic family situations; didn't intend to stay away so long. Sign in to see full entry.

Good Friday's Hour

Nature, whilst beautiful, inspiring and vital is also the mistress of deceptions intended to allow the strongest to survive. Weaker creatures are simply fodder.

1948 - From the Beginning: Propaganda and Refugees - History of Israel and

Palestine - 1 Benny Morris holds many, many views I do not agree with but he has done the homework on the early days of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and presents them honestly and unflinchingly.
