Palestinians as Na'vi from "Avatar"
I haven't seen Avatar yet, but read enough about it to hear its heroes, the Na'vi, being compared to American Indians, Iraqis, Palestinians and anyone whose land is occupied and whose wealth has been plundered. More from AP or Haaretz. It's well worth reading Amira Hass' recent article about how the West Bank wall and the restrictions imposed on Palestinians living on its Western side is basically forcing yet another round of Jewish supremacist ethnic cleansing by Israel.
Yves at CPA picks up on the "Palestinians as Na'vis" issue and reminds us of Mahmoud Darwish's poem about American Indians. [French]
