Blog About Palestine Day: Topic Suggestions & List of Participants

Tomorrow is Blog About Palestine Day 2009. The community response has been very refreshing so far. So many people have signed up both on the blog announcement and the Facebook Event. The event has been advertised and promoted on Qwaider’s Planet and Toot. This is a true grassroots community effort and I am so proud to be part of this responsible and vibrant community.

If you would like to participate but you’re facing a mental writer’s block, here is a list of possible topic ideas that i hope you find useful. Also, I would really appreciate it if the title of your blog post was preceded by [BAPD] (for example “[BAPD] My Article About Palestinian Cities”).  Finally, I would really appreciate it if you added a graphical button leading back to the event’s page so that future readers can learn more about the subject and read other people’s articles. You can use the following code to add a button to your post:

These are some of the seeds, tomorrow will be the blossom, and after that i will try to compile a harvest list of the articles.

  4. Not many people have written so far. I am enjoying reading people’s stories and perspectives of Palestine. Where are all the Palestinian bloggers? Where are the rest of the Arab bloggers who love to talk about Palestine?

    I think the day is not over, and more people need to write so others will get involved too. I did my part and I am hoping my readers will do theirs. Yalla everyone! 🙂

    God bless you all! Amen! 🙂

  10. The Return of Shiloh
    By Eric Robert Powell

    “Yet they tested the Most High God, and rebelled against him,
    They did not observe his decrees,

    But turned away and were faithless like their ancestors; they twisted
    Like a treacherous bow,

    For they provoked him to anger with their high places;
    They moved him to jealousy with their idols.
    When God heard, he was full of wrath,
    And he utterly rejected Israel,

    He abandoned his dwelling at Shiloh,
    The Tent where he dwelt among men,
    And delivered his power to the hand of the foe …

    Then the Lord awoke as from sleep, like a warrior shouting because of wine,
    He put his adversaries to rout;
    He put them to everlasting disgrace.” – Psalms 78:56-61; 65-66

    “Judah, your brothers shall praise you; and your hand shall be
    On the neck of your enemies;
    Your father’s sons shall bow down before you.

    Judah is a lion’s whelp;
    From the prey, my son, you have gone up.
    He crouches down like a lioness – who dares rouse him up?

    The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet,
    until Shiloh come and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.”– Genesis 49:8-10


    The biblical Judah was Thutmosis III and his firstborn son’s name is given as ‘Er’, the firstborn son of Judah.

    At Wikipedia, figure), we find that the word Shiloh is a biblical name of an individual, rather than being a mere word.
    The Latin Vulgate translates the word as “he … that is to be sent” [2], which would be the equivalent of the hebrew shaluach Hebrew: {{{1}}}‎שלוח (messenger), indicating a possible corruption of the text (on either side).
    The Peshitta “the one to whom [it] belongs”[3]
    Similarly, the Septuagint similarly translates the word to “the things stored up for him”[4][5].
    No old versions seem to interpret the word as to being the city called Shiloh.
    The phrase is translated in the King James Version as “(…) until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.”, thus making Shiloh a personal name.
    Also, ‘Shiloh’: Hebrew; Meaning: He who is to be sent. See #1383 on

    The mathematics behind the identity of Shiloh

    Taking each letter of the alphabet, from A-Z, each letter has a numerical value attached to it, as there are 26 letters to the English alphabet. The letter ‘A’ being assigned the numeral ‘1’, through the remaining letters up to its last, which is the letter ‘Z’, which totals a ‘26’.

    The number 26 is especially of interest because the sun in the center of the Milky Way (the stars name is ‘Rasalhague’, and is regarded as the 13th sign) has 26 times the illumination of our sun here on earth.

    The mathematical personage of Shiloh has been found.

    Column One:
    19 + 8 = 27 + 9 = 36 + 12 = 48 + 15 = 63

    Column Two:
    10 + 8 = 18 + 9 = 27 + 3 = 31 + 6 = 37

    Column Three
    1 + 8 = 9 + 9 = 18 + 3 = 21 + 6 = 27

    Column Four
    9 + 3 = 12 + 6 = 18

    The first number of Shiloh is a ‘one’ and the last number a ‘nine’.
    Taking each number through a column and adding them together, we arrive at the first series of numbers ending with the number ‘63’.
    Next we then reduce each number.
    Our first column began with the numeral ‘19’. One plus nine equals the reduced number of ‘10’, from which we begin our second column.
    One plus zero equals the number ‘one’ because the number zero cancels itself out,
    then the same method for the third column followed by the fourth.

    Together, this is what we find.

    The Ark of the Covenant is, as of today, in Ethiopia and not Israel.

    Using the computation we find that the biblical days of Shiloh took place in the 18th Dynasty of Tuthmosis III.
    We also find other information which has now been carried forward.
    We have the month, day and year of the return of Shiloh as 12/26/1956 as well as his time of birth, being 5 AM (GMT) and 9 AM (EST).

    “Until Shiloh Comes”

    D.O.B. – December 26, 1956

    Time of Birth: 9 AM (EST) and 5AM (GMT)

    Full name in alphanumerics:

    First name of ‘Eric’ equates the numeral ‘35’, reduced to a 26, a 17, and finally to the number ‘8’.

    Middle name ‘Robert’, being a ‘78’, reduced to a 51, a 42, 33, a 24, down to a 15, and finally the number ‘6’.

    Last name ‘Powell’ as an 83, reduced to the digits 74, 56, 38, 29, an 11 and then finally reduced to the number ‘2’.

  11. Wassup. That’s a pretty decent web-site, I’m extremely positive I at long last uncovered this mainly because I was seeking for this for an intensely extended period.I am just going to introduce myself now. So I am 27 years old and I have recently jumped into university in The Master’s College. I especially enjoy to try out competitive sports just like jai alai but also participate in applications that include Space Invaders The Original Game PC Engine Version.My personal brand new activity is focused on Income Infuser review. I went through a unique post regarding this which says: Almost every month associates will get a clean original unique content merchandise to present, plus each stitch of promoting materials they need to allow it to be turn like crazy.All plants carry out is actually express eyes for the opt-in webpage, take a seat again and appear on the procedure create their particular enterprise. Plus the certainty which they get fresh information to sell month for month not just expands their profit although helps make for the colossal stay demand placing significantly more unaggressive earnings in the bank every last calendar month. I’m not sure if the info is proper but it opened up my eyes with income infuser review.So I’m aiming to spend a lot of time on this internet site and I also pray I’m going to get a wide range of amazing resources. I’ll try to be somewhat helpful also simply by sharing certain stuff I grasp. Enjoy the fun , appreciate your warm welcome!!!
