“Americans committed to better living for bosses can take heart at the fact that college and university administrators—unlike their faculty (increasingly reduced to rootless and benefitless adjuncts) and students (saddled with ever more debt)?are thriving.”

In Gaza, US Citizens are Paying Israel’s Tab

“A riveting letter is making its rounds from Dr. Mads Gilbert, a Norwegian doctor volunteering in Palestine. In it, Dr. Gilbert describes his first-hand account of Israel’s boots on the ground in Gaza – the sounds of F16s, drones and Apache helicopters, “So much made and paid in and by US,” blended with the screams, the smells, the sight of shivers and blood. He pleads, “Mr. Obama – do you have a heart? I invite you – spend one night – just one night – with us in Shifa … I am convinced, 100 percent, it would change history.””

Teaching Peace: Reflections from Shrek the Musical

AVAILABLE FOR REPRINT. Copy and use freely. Please help PeaceVoice by notifying us when you use this piece: PeaceVoiceDirector@gmail.com


“I have long believed that good teaching is a lot like acting. This summer, I have had the chance to reflect more deeply about those connections, having had the wonderful opportunity to participate in my local children’s theater’s (Ft. Lauderdale Children’s Theater) production of Shrek the Musical, alongside my 10-year-old daughter. Here I share some of my observations about how community-based theater in general and Shrek the Musical, specifically, are wonderful reminders of what peace education should look like.”

Support for the Victims of Boko Haram Must Tackle Roots of Violence

“On July 16th, 2014, Boko Haram – a group engaging in terrorism in Nigeria – killed 44 Nigerian citizens and kidnapped seven. That same day, amid outcries for counterterrorism strategies, the Nigerian government took a step toward justice: Giving a hand to the Nigerian victims of Boko Haram violence. A fund-pooling campaign resulted in the inauguration that day of an appointed governmental committee – “The Victim Support Fund Committee” – at the presidential villa Abuja. Goodluck Jonathan, Nigeria’s president, explained the committee’s purpose during its inauguration on Wednesday: “We cannot replace the lives of men and women who have been killed … The best we can do in this circumstance is to offer them a shoulder to lean on and to stretch out our hands of fellowship to them and tell them we feel their pains and share in their sorrow.””

War Journalism Leads the Bleeding in Gaza

AVAILABLE FOR REPRINT. Copy and use freely. Please help PeaceVoice by notifying us when you use this piece: PeaceVoiceDirector@gmail.com


“As Israel’s boots hit the ground in Gaza, Operation War Journalism rages on. Both Arab and Israeli war journalists weaponize rhetoric: False dichotomies (do we bomb or do nothing?) and a pro-violence worldview, among other deadly bullets. War journalism sells violent conflict – “if it bleeds, it leads” – and we’re buying it. The violence in Gaza is partially a result of decades of media-distributed war products made from state-provided materials. War journalists escalate and prolong violent conflict. Their reporting choices, whether conscious or not, are harmful to citizens on all sides of violent conflicts, the Gaza crisis included.”
