I'm getting some feedback that OEN has been too hard on Israel, not showing both sides. We've always been open to publishing both sides. But we don't see much coming in supporting Israel's side. We ARE open to it, though I must confess, I've moved, over the past nine years, more towards supporting the Gazans and Palestinians. That said, I still support Israel's right to exist and to be safe.

Some are suggesting I should make a visit to Israel. I'm pretty sure I'd have places to stay once I got there. Anyone have some spare frequent flyer miles to get me there, or care to make a donation for air fare? I'd like to do a trip to Israel and Gaza and the "occupied territories." My critics who are encouraging me to check out Israel assure me that I can get to Gaza from Israel. I'm not so sure about that. I'm serious about making this trip. But I can't do it on my own financial resources. I'll need air-fare and some expense money.



You can make a donation to Opednews here. And drop me an email rob at opednews.com and let me know you made the donation to support the trip. Or, get me a ticket-- I'll work with you to coordinate when.

Along lines of looking for a solution to the middle east problem, I really like Faheem Younous' article, which I've top headlined. Gaza is Longing for an Arab-Israeli Spring

And to support the Arab Spring idea, here's an article By Socialist Worker Online,
Why the Arab Spring has changed everything in the Middle East

It includes an article by Gigi Ibrahim, a dynamic Egyptian activist who's doing some great photography and reporting.
thanks

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind.  Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives  one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big)  to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
