2015 – Gideon Levy and Mitri Raheb

2016-01-07

“The 2015 Olof Palme Prize is awarded to the Palestinian pastor Mitri Raheb, and the Israeli journalist Gideon Levy , for their courageous and indefatigable fight against occupation and violence, and for a future Middle East characterized by peaceful coexistence and equality for all. By their work they both give a ray of hope to a conflict that has plagued and continues to plague millions of people and to endanger world peace.As preacher and pastor in the Lutheran church, Mitri Raheb sends a clear message to the young generation of Palestinians: ”We want you to live, not die, for Palestine.” In a Bethlehem confined on three sides by the walls of the occupying Israeli power, and with Dar al-Kalima University College of Arts and Culture that he founded and his innovative artistic education in film, art, and drama, Raheb has made it possible for young people to investigate their Palestinian identity, to nurture beauty, and to invest in a culture of life as tools for a creative resistance against suffocating confinement and nation building.Gideon Levy is working for peace and reconciliation by means of a passionate search for truth and a fearless faith in the victory of reason in a region infested by prejudice and violence, propaganda and disinformation. With parents who were forced to emigrate from Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia, and as a true patriot, he has made reconciliation with the Palestinian people the mission of his life.”http://www.palmefonden.se/2015-gideon-levy-and-mitri-raheb/

CHILDHOOD

 

My father rode off on his horse to the fields.

My mother sat in a chair and sewed.

My little brother slept.

And I, on my own among the mango trees,

read the story of Robinson Crusoe.

A long story that never ends.

 

In the white light of noon, a voice that learned lullabies

In shanties from the slave days and never forgot them

called us for coffee.

Coffee as black as the old black maid,

pungent coffee,

good coffee.

 

My mother, still sitting there sewing,

looked at me:

“Shhh … Don’t wake the baby.”

Then at the crib where a mosquito had landed.

She uttered a sigh … how deep!

 

Far away my father was riding

in the ranch’s endless pasture.

 

And I didn’t know that my story

was more beautiful than Robinson’s Crusoe.

… from a very dear friend

“Thanks Fabio. Yes we are all counted safe, totally in shock but safe. There is an overall feeling of sadness and being lost, but I know we’ll make it. If we are here, it is because we have something positive to bring to the world. There is a time for everything, now is still the mourning time, then we’ll stand all together with the world and make something beautiful come out of all those ashes. Many many hugs back to you :)”

My very dear friend, Thanks so much for your thoughts, energy, humanism, and wisdom at this very dark hour. Your words soothe my pain and show me a way out. But we will never forget the lives lost, the victims fighting for their lives at the hospitals, the scars on our minds. Hugs to all your family and to you! 🙂

“C’est une horreur ce qui s’est passé chez nous à Paris,
rien ne justifie cette barbarie,
ils ne méritent pas le nom d’êtres humains…
On ne peut que penser aux victimes et à leurs proches…
C’est d’une tristesse ces actes, rien ne justifie cette barbarie,
ils ne méritent pas le nom d’êtres humains…
On ne peut que penser aux victimes et à leurs proches…
C’est d’une tristesse ces actes, rien ne justifie cette barbarie,
ils ne méritent pas le nom d’êtres humains…
On ne peut que penser aux victimes et à leurs proches…”

“It is horrible what happened to us in Paris
nothing justifies this barbarism,
they do not deserve the name of human beings …
One can only think of the victims and their families …
It is a sadness such acts, nothing justifies this barbarism,
they do not deserve the name of human beings …
One can only think of the victims and their families …
It is a sadness such acts, nothing justifies this barbarism,
they do not deserve the name of human beings …
One can only think of the victims and their families … “
