from the interview:

"Yehoshua Radler-Feldman, known by his pseudonym R. Binyamin (1880-1957) was a Galician-born, observant Jew, a prominent figure in modern Hebrew literature and journalism, and, although a committed Zionist himself, a sharp critic of the Zionist settler-colonial repertoire of perceptions and practices. He was one of the prominent figures in the movements that called for the establishment of a joint Jewish-Arab political framework during the British mandatory period and criticized the Zionist alliance with and reliance on the British colonial authorities. He also turned against the secular Zionist notion of an exclusive sovereign that reclaimed Biblical Jewish existence in Palestine, while he adhered to traditional Jewish notions of existence in Palestine, Eretz Yisrael, which enabled him to explore the notion of binational existence. Following the establishment of the state of Israel and the Palestinian Nakba, he founded the journal Ner, which served to voice the demand for the return of the Palestinian refugees, and where various representatives of those Palestinians who remained inside the state of Israel (48 Palestinians) published their articles as well."

yes, bluesky is very popular among germans: it's a twitter clone, so the typical overaged german former twitter user would not be forced to learn something new lol

re: friendica: its philosophy is to federate with everything (remember the friendica - facebook bridge killed by zuckerberg) > for professional media outlets, friendica is indeed becoming a hidden gem within an increasingly scattered socmed landscape > friendica is even a secret weapon within the fediverse: from friendica, it's possible to start threads on lemmy, kbin and mbin (interaction rates tend to be higher in threadiverse, compared to microblogging fedi)

from the article:

In a shocking incident at the Colonial War Memo­rial Hospital (CWMH) on Tuesday, a caregiver faced religious discrimination when a head nurse instructed her to remove her hijab upon reporting to work at the new surgical ward.

Residing in Komave settlement in Nabua, Rasida Janif was completing her two-month internship as a caregiver, hav­ing successfully completed her caregiving courses at the Fiji National University (FNU).

Ms J anif claimed the head nurse explicitly directed her to take off her hijab, asserting that the hospital was “not a religious facility”.

The statement left Ms Janif with mixed emotions, describing the incident as racially motivated and emotionally distressing.

“This is the first time I’ve had to endure such a horrifying experience,” Ms Janif said, expressing her dismay at the sudden discriminatory treatment.

“I’ve worked in many places, and everyone accepted my attire as it is.”

Ms Janif highlighted she had initially been advised to wear a shorter hijab during her first weeks of attachment, which she willingly complied with.

However, the abrupt demand to remove her hijab later in her internship conflicted with her religious beliefs, leaving her feeling targeted.

The Islamic headscarf, she emphasised, is not merely a piece of clothing but “a big part of her identity,” and relinquishing it would compromise her deeply held religious convictions.

Feeling disheartened, she still expressed her dedication to caregiving, citing it as her sole job opportunity.

In response to the issue, the Fiji Muslim League headquarters in Suva received a complaint from Ms Janif and intends to file a formal complaint with the Ministry of Health.

Colonial War Memorial Hospital Medical Superintendent, Dr Luke Nasedra, clarified that wearing a hijab “is allowed” and not prohibited within the hospital.

The Minister for Health and Medical Services, Dr Ratu Atonio Lalabalavu, said he had not received a formal complaint and could not comment any further.

The Fiji Women Crisis Centre coordinator, Shamima Ali, condemned the incident as a violation of human rights in a democratic country like Fiji.

She said such actions go against religious beliefs, deeming it “unacceptable” and a blatant human rights violation that demands immediate attention.

The Fiji Human Rights and AntiDiscrimination Commission will await an official complaint from the victim.

Toward a Speculative Poetics of Translation: Janine Beichman’s Translation from Japanese of Ishigaki Rin’s “This Overflowing Light: Selected Poems” (readingintranslation.com)

In the volume’s artful and engaging introduction, Beichman calls our attention to several correspondences with contemporary poetics: first, there is the speculative orientation of Ishigaki’s work, capable of uncanny leaps in spatial and temporal perspective. Then there is its under-explored connection to eco-critical...
