Quote
"They call us now.
Before they drop the bombs.
The phone rings
and someone who knows my first name
calls and says in perfect Arabic
“This is David.”
And in my stupor of sonic booms and glass shattering symphonies
still smashing around in my head
I think “Do I know any Davids in Gaza?”
They call us now to say
Run.
You have 58 seconds from the end of this message.
Your house is next.
They think of it as some kind of war time courtesy.
It doesn’t matter that
there is nowhere to run to.
It means nothing that the borders are closed
and your papers are worthless
and mark you only for a life sentence
in this prison by the sea
and the alleyways are narrow
and there are more human lives
packed one against the other
more than any other place on earth
Just run.
We aren’t trying to kill you.
It doesn’t matter that
you can’t call us back to tell us
the people we claim to want aren’t in your house
that there’s no one here
except you and your children
who were cheering for Argentina
sharing the last loaf of bread for this week
counting candles left in case the power goes out.
It doesn’t matter that you have children.
You live in the wrong place
and now is your chance to run
to nowhere.
It doesn’t matter
that 58 seconds isn’t long enough
to find your wedding album
or your son’s favorite blanket
or your daughter’s almost completed college application
or your shoes
or to gather everyone in the house.
It doesn’t matter what you had planned.
It doesn’t matter who you are
Prove you’re human.
Prove you stand on two legs.
Run."

thewritersramblings said: CAN WE TALK ABOUT MIDDLE EASTERN WITCHES AND WIZARDS THOUGH. AND HOW THEY'RE SPELLS WOULD OBVIOUSLY NOT BE LATIN, GREEK OR ANGLO SAXON, BUT INSTEAD LIKE ANCIENT PHOENICIAN, OR SOMETHING. AND THAT THEIR TIES BETWEEN SPELLS AND MAGIC WOULD BE STRONGER SINCE THEIR WORDS ARE MORE ANCIENT AND FAR OLDER SO THEY'D BE WAY MORE POWERFUL???? SORRY FOR THE CAPS?????

NEVER APOLOGIZE FOR CAPS. PHOENICIAN SPELLS. ARAMAIC SPELLS. LANGUAGES MUGGLES DON’T KNOW ANYMORE THAT HAVE BEEN PRESERVED THROUGH WIZARDING SPELLS IN LITTLE POCKETS OF THE WORLD. SOURCE LANGUAGES NO ONE KNOWS HOW TO ADAPT OR CHANGE ANYMORE BECAUSE THE LANGUAGES HAVE DIED AND PEOPLE ARE AFRAID TO CAUSE LIKE, A NUCLEAR FALLOUT. IM SO EXCITED THANKS FOR THIS.

 (the-writers-ramblings

Witches in secret pockets of Morocco who’ve been casting spells with ancient spices long before wands came about. Warlocks in Egypt who knew the double, magical, meaning behind hieroglyphics. A dead language? Latin and Ancient Greek have NOTHING on hieroglyphs. The veritable cacophany of ideas and spells and magic that the trading routes brought in. The Phoenecians with their many-striped sailboats proudly displayed Persian potion ingredients alongside spelled fishing nets woven by Palestinian wizards. Syrian magical folk meet Greek ones, and realize they can best communicate in the Ancient Greek all serious magical students learn. Curly heads bent over ancient spellbooks, and people stare as they converse in a language not spoken for hundreds of years.

Excuse you but can we not forget the jewish lore masters, poring over their tomes in hebrew and aramaic, preserved from their exiled homeland into the diaspora.

And the development of a syncretic magic in yiddish that mixes the subtle lore and subtle word power of the exiled levantines with the raw brute force of germanic magics. — how else did the golem?

DIASPORA SYNCRETIC MAGICS

JEWISH WIZARDS

Yes to the Yiddish spells, too ;-)

Jewish wizards offering clothing to house elves and then constantly debating among themselves whether using a golem or other magically-created entity with some semblance of sentience for manual labor for years or decades is essentially the same thing as keeping a magical being for the same purpose.

See also: endless debates about whether one can use magic on Shabbat, and what sorts of magic qualify as “work”. Like, does it count if you enchant an object ahead of time?

Also debates over the extent to which Divination counts as the “witchcraft” detailed in the Tanach. Actually, I bet there’d be scholars compiling detailed tractates about which spells are kosher, using extensive biblical commentary.

JEWISH WIZARDS HAVING THEIR OWN EXTENDED TALMUD. HOW HAS THIS NEVER OCCURRED TO ME BEFORE??

YES PLEASE HERE FOR ALL OF THIS

Tractates about which spells are kosher and what ingredients one can substitute in certain potions, particularly the ones that call for any sort of blood; debates about whether it is forbidden to brew those potions for someone else’s use

At least one prevailing opinion that all forms of Divination must be avoided, since we don’t know which ones are the ones forbidden by the Torah; this is one reason why Divination is an elective rather than a requirement at so many wizarding schools

Many, many disagreements about what sorts of magic constitute “work” on Shabbat, especially with regard to instantaneous travel; Floo powder is out because it involves burning something, but Apparition might not be?  And does it count as     travel (which is prohibited on Shabbat past a certain distance) if you’re not actually traversing the miles between you and your destination?

Fuck if it counts as traveling, IT COUNTS AS CARRYING. Even if you keep it within the eruv (and are sure you will never make mistakes),  wands are likely mukzah.

Also, I see the need for serious questions about transfiguration in general. Do not ever transfigure ANYTHING that might come to be involved in food prep. Ignore all the issues about transfiguring an animal and shecting it and if you transfigure a pig into a chicken, because that gets into the issues of what is life and can you create it or are you just mimicing it, but THINK ABOUT THE TOVELING AND KASHRUS ISSUES. THINK ABOUT THEM AND WEEP FOR THE GEMARA YOU WILL NEVER STUDY.

(I am just sitting here going “yovel for house elves” and wanting allllll the fic.)

The fights about nolad and transfiguring. The debates about tzniut and beged ish in relation to wizards’ robes. The sheer chaos of Ashkenazi vs. Sephardi wizards (to say nothing of Masechet Michashef and the differences between the Bavli and Yerushalmi versions).

okay so, my dad, if I could get him into fandom (let us all take a moment to be glad my dad isn’t in fandom), would totally write that beged ish thing. He likes to talk about making sure there’s enough light to be able to tell your wife’s robes from your own. :P

Also, I feel there would be a Jewish Witches rock band called Necromancing Shmuel.
