Occupation 101

Sharing in light of David Horowitz’ delusional rant at Ohio State University, denying that Israelis ever expelled the Arabs in 1948.

The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it’s the illusion of knowledge. – Stephen Hawking

Any violence by a large population is not because these people [are] more violent than any other.

It’s an alarm. It’s a sign.

It’s a signal that something is wrong in the treatment of this population.

Where is the outcry … Where is the voice of the people?

From Ireland

to Algeria

to India

to America

to South Africa

the voices of the majority were silenced

as they suffered the same injustices.

They attack all of us for the same reason.

All of us catch Hell from the same enemy.

We’re all in the same bag, in the same boat.

We suffer political oppression, economic exploitation, and social degradation.

All of them from the same enemy . . .

Racism, Greed, and Brutality.

But, all of them – every oppressor, without fail – lost in the end.

There must be someone, somewhere . . .

There’s got to be somebody, somewhere that cares.

Young David took that one small stone

and the faith of his God

and slayed the giant – Goliath.

It happened before and it will happen again.

Those who make peaceful evolution impossible, make violent revolution inevitable.
