Noli me Tangere by Hans Holbein the Younger
Noli me tangere is the Latin version of the words spoken, according to the Gospel of John, by Jesus to Mary Magdalene, meaning "touch me not" (the quotation appears in John 20:17).
It has been argued that the Greek original (Μή μου πτου) is better represented by a translation of cease from holding on to me, signifying that Jesus is saying that although he is risen he has not returned in the same form that he left.

 Rizal's Masterpiece: Noli Me Tangere
The Noli Me Tangere is, therefore, not merely an attack on the Spanish colonial regime.
In his novel, Rizal has given a sort of encouragement to his countrymen to struggle against their bad qualities, and afterwards they have reformed.
The title of Noli Me Tangere is a Latin phrase, which means "Touch Me Not." Basically this phrase was not originally conceived by Rizal, for he admitted taking it from the Bible.

The Noli Me Tangere found another staunch defender in the person of a Catholic theologian of the Manila Cathedral, in Father Vicente Garcia.
Fittingly, Rizal found it a timely and effective gesture to dedicate his novel to the country of his people whose experiences and sufferings he wrote about, sufferings which he brought to light in an effort to awaken his countrymen to the truths that had long remained unspoken, although not totally unheard of.

 [No title]
As previously stated, the principal target of the Noli's as well as the Fili's critique is the abuses perpetrated by the friars and Guardia Civil of the Spanish colony, both of which groups wielded enormous power and influence in the politics of the colony.
Despite its denunciation of the friars, the Noli's narrative challenges the simplistic view of the novel as univocal propagandism by its interweaving of various plots and varied, often contradictory political statements into one complex, perhaps overwrought tapestry of Philippine society on the eve of revolution.
The novel thus achieves a dual purpose; it is both an incitement to revolution and a dire warning against it, an exact summing-up, in fact, of his views on revolution, which because they were completely realistic contained the element of ambivalence.

The characters of Rizal’s Noli me tangere have come to life again in a novel recently published in the United States and reprinted in Manila, written by Roger Olivares.
The reprint is entitled Noli Me Tangere 2: A Modern Sequel to Dr. Jose P. Rizal’s Novel.
The novel gives a vivid picture of the corruption in the government, the wretchedness of the life of the poor, the frivolity of the wealthy, including the graduates of good Catholic schools who should know better.

 El Filibusterismo
Even for those who have not read the first novel, Simoun, the protagonist in El Filibusterismo is clearly portrayed so that it is quite easy to imagine him as the young Crisostomo Ibarra in Noli me Tangere.
Both the Noli and the Fili were used, quite obviously, as a medium for describing life in Manila and nearby provinces under the oppresive rule of the Spanish colonizers, and to mock the miserable attempts of some Indios to try to be like their colonizers.
I find Noli me Tangere more dramatic, and the scornful laughter applies to both the two Doñas—Victorina and Consolacion—as well as to the mad Sisa and to Maria Clara, the beautiful and kind but simpering ninny who is generally regarded as the “heroine” in the novel.

This novel, published in 1887, not only inspired the Philippine Revolution but also nationalist movements in China and other countries of Southeast Asia during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
This novel was followed in 1891 by an angrier and more passionate sequel, El Filibusterismo (Subversion), which established his reputation as the leading spokesman of the Philippine reform movement.
Back then we were all "equal opportunity oppressors." It was not a world in which the cry of "noli me tangere" was likely to be respected unless it could be backed with a sufficiently painful bite for any would-be violators.

It is not mere patriotic pride that leads Filipinos to acclaim the author of the Noli and the Fili as the first Asian nationalist and as one who in his way moved the world.
Noli Me Tangere (Spanish for "Touch Me Not") is an irreverent satire, a comedic interpretation of life under the last years of Spanish colonial rule in the Philippines-- although the topics are far from funny.
It is a novel about the church-governed politics of the era, it is a story about injustice and greed, treachery and nationalism.

In this novel, Cris (like the original Crisostomo Ibarra), went abroad, came back and saw the poverty in the country, particularly the plight of OFWs in Hong Kong and other cities.
In Noli 2, Olivares takes the main characters of Jose Rizal, namely, Crisostomo Ibarra, Maria Clara, Elias and Sisa, from the Spanish dominated 19th century to the present day Philippines.
Like Rizal’s Noli, it is a searing love story with clash of characters, individual soul searching—in the backdrop of the current social, political and economic landscape.

 Philippine Commentary
Whereas, the life, works and writings of Jose Rizal particularly his novels Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo, are a constant and inspiring source of patriotism with which the minds of the youth, especially during their formative and decisive years in school, should be suffused.
The said unexpurgated editions of the Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo or their translations in English as well as other writings of Rizal shall be included in the list of approved books for required reading in all public or private schools, colleges and universities.
I think the FACTS will bear me out that Zarqawi was directly and intentionally responsible for the death of thousands of innocent Iraqi men, women and children, killed twenty to one hundred twenty at a time in their mosques, police recruiting stations, government offices, homes and offices.
