جرتي تحب الزيتون

أيتها الأم، أيتها الأم مريم المقدسة!أين أمضيت الليل أيتها الأم؟ أمضيت الليل في مدينة القدسفي كنيسة الرب خلف المذبح غفوة قليلا وحلمت كثيرا:خيل لي أني ولدت ابنا هو المسيح ولففته بقماط وزينته بطوق حريري.قال لها المسيح، يسوع المقدس:أمي، يا أمي!لا تبوحي بهذا الحلم يا أمي:أنا أعرف هذا الحلم وأنا أفسره لك .قرب نهر الأردن نمت شجرة مقدسة وعلي تلك الشجرة القبرصية ظهر الصليب المدهش الصليب المدهش واهب الحياة وعلي ذلك الصليب سأصلب.


حلم مريم المقدسة..شعر ديني

 

From Exhibiting You:

This video installation does not discuss women only, although the subject is a covered woman. The scarf does not literally represent a veil, or burqa, although it resembles one. The Humanity Practice is about humanity--both men and women--while the scarf represents privacy.  

From Community:

This is what comes to my mind, when I try to visualise the valley. The so-called paradise has become hell and is haunted by the cries of innocent who die innocent deaths each day.

From Women, Power and Politics:

The Curse of Nakedness

A woman's body is both revered and feared in cultural traditions from East to West. It is immortalized as "pin-up girl" and simultaneously mystified as mother. A community of women in Nigeria, however, proved that a woman's body is enough to bring one of the largest oil companies to the bargaining table. When their words were not being heard, they made themselves be seen...by threatening to strip naked in public.

From Women, Power and Politics:

Singing for Change

In the summer of 2003, twenty female musicians from Algeria, France and Argentina gathered in a recording studio in Paris, France. Their mission: to overturn Algeria's Family Code -- a set of laws that, for over 20 years, has relegated women to second-class citizenship. Their instrument: a song.
