Usain Bolt is heroic :’) If you haven’t seen his interview with the BBC, get on it :’)
We either live free or we die here.
A Palestinian in Gaza, from this interview with BBC (quote begins at 2 minutes)
Palestinian man: “We either live free or we die here.”
Interviewer: “What about the argument that if Hamas stopped firing rockets into Israel—”
Palestinian man: “No, no, this is not an argument. We have lived under blockade for the last seven years. We have been deprived for the last seven years. Don’t talk to me about rockets that is so tiny small. Look at this! [motioning to rubble of a destroyed neighborhood] This is a nonsense argument. We didn’t start it, they started it. In the 2008 agreement they fulfilled nothing. 2012 agreement, they fulfilled nothing. Why should we believe this time the ceasefire when they say let’s negotiate? Negotiating with the Israelis is a waste of time.”
Also when you have actual articles appearing in the Israeli media equivocating about when genocide is permissible.(via hr-stasistuff)
Tunnels were used in the Warsaw Ghetto to smuggle food and weapons. They were also used by the Vietnamese when the US bombed them to pieces. Why are people so surprised that when you cage people in or bomb them, that they seek refuge underground?Diana Buttu (via socialismartnature)
people who have the audacity to mention the PTSD that U.S. soldiers’ face as a result of their actions in Afghanistan but conveniently leave out the large number of Afghans that develop PTSD as a result of those actions.
Your fucking husband’s PTSD, brought about after he “accidentally” killed a little girl, will be treated in time and given all the attention. My family members will never be accorded that opportunity.
And every shitty politician who has ever enabled Israeli war crimes can join them. I hope they suffer the most unimaginable pain - even that won’t be enough.
Anyone who can sit back and justify Israeli atrocities can go and die too. Preferably to then go on and burn in whichever hell they believe in, too.
