Here is the caption that came along with this picture:
What would you do if one of them is your kid? Around an hour ago, the Israeli forces murdered a Palestinian family in Gaza. Four kids less than six years old vanished in a second and the World still silent and still believing the Israeli propaganda. Stand for Justice, Stand for Peace, and Pray for the innocent. “You can’t defend yourself when you’re militarily occupying someone else’s land. That’s not defense. Call it what you like, it’s not defense, Noam Chomsky” I ask everyone to pray for the healing of my native country Palestine.
~John Dabeet (President at Americans & Palestinians for Peace (AMPAL))
I can tell you this – if this happened to my kid or my family … my life mission would be to destroy the people responsible. The system that allows for this is completely unacceptable and Israel has not been held accountable for war crimes. None whatsoever. America backs Israel because it is owned lock, stock and barrel by AIPAC. If Iran did this with a neighbor country … what do you think we would do exactly? Just how quickly would we be at war with Iran and how many countries would come along with us?
There is a growing reservoir of dissatisfaction among younger Jewish Americans who see these injustices and yet they continue. More on the war crimes HERE and you can see Israel killing more Palestinian babies HERE. As an agnostic I do not have the satisfaction of knowing that an omnipresent,omniscient god will retaliate on Bibi Netanyahu’s injustices in the afterlife and that is unfortunate for me. The similarities between Netanyahu and Bush are uncanny when it comes to foreign policy and just like I blame Americans for being stupid enough to vote for Bush twice – the only people you can truly hold responsible for these war crimes are the whole of the Israeli people. Because even though I know that they themselves would like to see these innocents die; they are complicit in their behavior should they choose to reelect a man who is a war criminal.
This happened on 11/18/12:
And America continues to walk hand in hand with Netanyahu.
