rashadsays:

Please watch and share this video, an accurate historical lesson on the bloody history of Israel, produced by a Jewish peace foundation.

Blindly spewing hate on one side without the knowledge to substantiate it is pointless. I 100% support the notion of Israel as a state and safe haven for its inhabitants, and as a refuge for Holocaust survivors.

But there’s not a single ounce of me that’ll stand by the way it was attained. The UN and World Powers like Great Britain which had mandates on Palestinian land, due to European imperialism, literally carved up the homes of an indigenous people, and relabeled it as a safe place for Holocaust survivors to “return to.”

They redrew borders and demolished homes in order to make way for their own agenda. And it’s validated by Jewish Zionist beliefs that this land is their divine right, promised to Prophets Abraham and Jacob by God in the Torah - a book that’s over 3 millennia old. At this rate, the Zionist agenda is no different from America’s Manifest Destiny and slaughter of our indigenous populations.

I’m so sick and tired of American “Zionists” playing victim and crying because their support for the mass murder of innocent men, women and children is not validated by the masses. Of American teenagers raised by conservative Jewish parents who instilled in them the ideals that what Israel is doing is necessary. That it is imperative. That it is their divine right. This intrinsic Zionist sense of entitlement makes me so, so sick.

Israel is not your “promised land.” Israel is not your divine right.

Over 105 Palestinians have been murdered in the last 3 days, and 785 civilians are injured, and not a single Israeli soul has been harmed. Instead, they’re flocking to cliff-sides in Sderot, miles away from Gaza to celebrate the dropping of bombs on Palestinian homes.

We have Zionists crying because the actions of their mother country are not being validated by the masses on social networks.

We have one of the most persecuted peoples of the 20th century, doing what was done onto them. 

We have American, Zionist-owned newspapers headlining articles watering down this vile ethnic cleansing, the NY Times reporting “Israel and Palestine Exchange Fire.” 

No, no people. Israel vs. Palestine is not a war. It is a contemporary genocide. It is a violation on every single unalienable human right we are born in the western world with. Support the oppressed and identify the oppressor. These dogs need to account for their actions.

Great video

The top comment (from my fb) is an Israeli I’m friends (friendly?) with who lives just East of Haifa. The type who will claim that it’s all cool & everyone just wants to get along, but will throw a gum wrapper at you & joke that it was a Palestinian kid throwing rocks when you turn to see who did it. The same friend who came to the Wailing Wall & warned us to be careful of people throwing things over the wall at night, while vans full of IDF soldiers dressed like a SWAT team poured out in full riot gear to “protect” us from potential of the “terror” of falling debris tossed in from the other sides. Which never came, but boy, were they ready. You’ve never met a group of people more terrorized by rocks.

The racism is so deeply ingrained in them that they don’t even realize that those are not jokes, but human lives. They’re not terrorists, they’re children who have known nothing in their lifetimes except for struggle & limited food & fear & self defense. It’s sickening when you realize how dehumanized the Palestinian people are to the Israelis.

And yeah, there are not just stones, but rockets coming from the West Bank. Some are short range dirty bombs made from building supplies & the other long range ones are bought off of countries like Syria & brought in through tunnels or ships meant to carry supplies. The Iron Dome mostly blasts them all out of the sky & everyone cheers a little, then continues to go about their business. Then Israel shoots a hundred rockets back and everyone cheers some more as they streak across the sky & they sleep soundly in their beds knowing that no bratty Palestinian kids will have the nerve to throw rocks over the wall tonight.

And that’s fucked up.

Gaza was bombarded with 273 airstrikes yesterday (8th July). That’s an average of 11 an hour. Gaza is about 25 miles long and 4 miles wide, with a population of 1.7 million crammed into that tiny space. It is under Israeli occupation and Israeli siege. Hospitals estimate they will run out of resources to treat the wounded in about two days. Electricity is intermittent. Gaza has no army, air force or navy. Israel is the fourth largest military power in the world. Resistance to occupation is allowed under international law. Israel’s occupation, siege and collective punishment of Gaza is not.

Art is a spiritual transaction. Artists are visionaries. We routinely practice a form of faith, seeing clearly and moving toward a creative goal that shimmers in the distance – often visible to us, but invisible to those around us. Difficult as it is to remember, it is our work that creates the market, not the market that creates our work. Art is an act of faith, and we practice practicing it.

Dozens of Palestinians acting as human shields stood on the roof of a house hit by an Israeli airstrike early this morning, hoping their presence would deter a second strike.

At least six of them were killed and about 25 wounded as the second Israeli airstrike was carried out.

The Israeli military had no immediate comment - probably busy thinking up how they will attempt to cover up this horrific attack.

If the IDF’s comment is anything like how the Israeli people I know respond to these things, it will sound something like, “Did you even hear that they murdered 3 of our innocent children? YOU CAN’T EVEN UNDERSTAND THE ISSUE WITHOUT BEING HERE HAVING ROCKETS LAUNCHED AT YOU BY THESE TERRORISTS. ALL YOU HEAR IS PROPAGANDA OVER THERE SO YOU HAVE THE TOTALLY WRONG IDEA.”

Which is actually sort of ironic since the US & Israel are bff’s and have been for generations. The idea that we’re being spoon fed nothing but pro-Palestine propaganda by our own media with the goal of vilifying Israel makes me actually laugh. That’s not how this stuff works.

Douglas Adams is the best when it comes to describe characters

they need to teach classes on Douglas Adams analogies okay

He leant tensely against the corridor wall and frowned like a man trying to unbend a corkscrew by telekinesis.”

"Stones, then rocks, then boulders which pranced past him like clumsy puppies, only much, much bigger, much, much harder and heavier, and almost infinitely more likely to kill you if they fell on you.”

"He gazed keenly into the distance and looked as if he would quite like the wind to blow his hair back dramatically at that point, but the wind was busy fooling around with some leaves a little way off.”

"It looked only partly like a spaceship with guidance fins, rocket engines and escape hatches and so on, and a great deal like a small upended Italian bistro.”

"If it was an emotion, it was a totally emotionless one. It was hatred, implacable hatred. It was cold, not like ice is cold, but like a wall is cold. It was impersonal, not as a randomly flung fist in a crowd is impersonal, but like a computer-issued parking summons is impersonal. And it was deadly - again, not like a bullet or a knife is deadly, but like a brick wall across a motorway is deadly.”

You forgot the best one though-

"The ships hung in the sky in much the same way that bricks don’t."
