As if anyone needed reminding, but perhaps they do, Benjamin Netanyahu once more exposed his racist, nay fascist mindset when in a speech, he referred to Palestinians as “sub-human”:
“As if anyone needed it we got a reminder that a stone is a lethal weapon,” he said.
“The terror of stones thrown in an ambush joins the terror of petrol bombs, the terror of knives, the terror of shots and missiles, explosive devices, car bombs and suicide attacks,” Netanyahu said.
“But we shall not retreat, not surrender, not give in… Terror is not a blow from above, it is the work of humans, or subhumans. We shall defeat them.” — ‘Israel will not yield to ‘subhumans‘: Netanyahu

Today, I learned with great sorrow of the death of a woman who had a very profound affect on my life. Born I think, on exactly the same month, day and year as Fidel Castro, Patricia Murphy-Robinson died on 11 April 2013. I knew that she’d been ill having spoken to her a few months ago in Jacksonville Fla, where she lived, but just how ill she had been, she kept hidden from me and wasn’t until I got an email from someone who knew her, that I found out.
This is not the place to go into Patricia’s long and eventful life and about which I have only the sketchiest idea, nor how I came to know her. Instead, here’s an essay she sent me that I published in an earlier version of InI and on rereading it after so many years (I think it was penned sometime in the 1990s), it seems right on the money for our situation today and a fitting testament to Patricia’s lifelong struggle for justice.

We move quickly from sad last night to concerned and determined today, as the caceroles sound around the neighbourhoods and the opposition hangs outside the National Electoral Council (CNE) here in Merida, hundreds of them walking around with rocks and glass bottles in their hands, itching to have something to react to.
