An interview with Moshe Benarroch (BY Karen Alkalay-Gut)  (Short Story) - 7/2/2003 11:16:52 PM
There are three main dialects of the original language of the Moroccans: Tarifit, spoken in the Northern part of Morocco, in the Rif mountains, Tamazight, spoken in the Atlas mountains and Tashelhit, spoken mainly in the southern part of the country, like the Souss area. Some researchers believe the first Jews came to Morocco after the destruction of the first temple in Jerusalem. How those Jews came to live in some remote arid areas in the southern part of the country as well as remote areas of the Atlas ranges is an enigma. It is also known that tribes of Shleuhs converted to Judaism well before the arabs came to North Africa, reaching Morocco and imposing Islam by the power of the sword. Unfortunately, the Tarifit, Tamazight and Tashelhit dialects are only spoken and not written. Although the structure of the language is very rich and obviously developed by extremely intelligent people, the language was passed orally and no known written grammar or alphabet was developed. By the way, Moroccans, Jews or otherwise are excellent linguists, many of them speaking four or more languages.

Introduction to: THE IMMIGRANT'S LAMENT (Article) - 7/3/2003 12:19:34 PM
I would like to reflect on the original meaning of the word "culture". According to the Oxford dictionary, culture is "a refined understanding and appreciation of art, literature, etc., state of intellectual development of a society, customs, arts, social institutions of a particular group of people." So it is a very broad term encompassing art, literature and other forms of intellectual works. Therefore, by definition, can somebody who by clear prejudice, does not appreciate the fine art and literature of another group of people be considered a person of considerable culture? The sorry state in Israel is that those who brought with them the traditions of Eastern Europe have "reinvented" and redefined the term culture. In this process of falsification, right was redefined as left and left became right. The word Maghreb means West, so the Moroccan Jews brought with them their western culture, crossing the Mediterranean heading East to the Levant. The East European Jews, on the other hand, obviously originated from the East and should have been designated as Orientals. Unfortunately, they brought with them Bolshevik ideas and Kafkaic bureaucracy, both very strange to our Hebrew-Judaic heritage. In this context, I can see that not much has changed in Israel vis-a-vis the Sephardic traditions and rich culture since the inception of the Jewish state. It is unfortunate that many politicians, just like the old woman Golda Meir, still have extremely narrow horizons with respect to original cultures, as well as a very weak intellectual ability. But that might be a disease of many power hungry politicians worldwide. Yechiel Crispin, Florida, USA.

Very beautiful, mint-leaf-like moments compressed into a lyric that shows great discipline in the use of imagery, effecting great precision, deep in its melancholy.

Cute, sometimes two ends of a circle do not meet, therefore developing a spiral. Be safe, Karen

Good being alone (Poetry) - 1/7/2007 8:48:45 AM
As a writer, those times alone are mandatory to creating and searching out new avenues to explore and express. I have always been a man content to be alone, especially in nature - the peace and quiet is food for the soul. Light and Wisdom ... Richard Lloyd Cederberg
