I recently launched a new website about Lebanon. The main component is a blog in which I write about Lebanon and my experiences there. Click here to visit the website.

Another website I recently launched is Smash Israeli Colonialism / Free Palestine, which is meant to provide news stories, articles, photos, etc. that portray life in Palestine and the Palestinian struggle for liberation.

I own 5 LJ communities, check them out if you're interested: anti_zionists, boycottisrael (NEW), dear__israel (NEW), nj__devils, and philosophygrads.

Other links of interest:
-My book list
-juvenal_quotes (my quotes journal)

The colours on my journal are symbolic of the UK flag.

I am a professional stalker, so if you have any thoughts of stalking me, remember the quote, "don't do onto others what you don't want others to do onto you", and that should give you a clear idea of what to expect.

I am pro-life, from a strictly philosophical (not religious) perspective. I am an agnostic, and a social conservative. I am queer (bisexual), but I do not like wearing rainbow t-shirts.

Any of you who know me from before might realise that I've had a huge change in opinions, as well as in my life. I'm no longer who I used to be. And I love it the way it is NOW. :)

I don't like gossip, and I'll make sure to stalk kick you to hell and back (OK, maybe I like this strikeout feature too much) if you do gossip about me anywhere. OK, that's not a threat.

Also, please do not take everything I say seriously, because I have a love relationship with sarcasm. If you have a problem with that, remember that it's not my problem, and I will not stalk you anyway.

I am currently reading: The Anarchical Society: A Study of Order in World Politics by Hedley Bull.

Anyway, so here are a couple of links that I like:

-http://www.americanintifada.com

I don't believe in states' "right" to exist. That said, however, given the reality of the situation regarding the existence of states/governments, I must stress that I don't believe that Israel in particular has a right to exist, and in fact neither does any other state that is based on land theft, such as USA, Canada, Australia, and Turkey (let me know if I have missed any others!).

I also believe in ethnic and racial 'nationalism' (not state nationalism) and celebrating different cultures and heritages. Celebrating a culture, however, does not mean celebrating past injustices committed by the bearers of that culture. It means that reparation and reconciliation have been achieved or are in the process of being achieved, and lessons have been learned. I also believe that governments and their unjust acts do not represent ethnic values, nor do they represent the general population of a particular ethnicity/race. Therefore, if one should 'hate' acts and injustices, one must hate the evil entity of the government (which might be of a certain ethnicity or another) rather than the entire race or ethnicity.

I am for freedom of speech for all people, regardless of race, ethnicity, country of origin, gender, sexual orientation, religion, personal or political beliefs, etc.
