I want to reblog this 100 times but I’ll just do it once
panamsat3 asked: I wonder why a UN location would targeted? You should try googling "Hamas rockets at UN school" and see what you learn. Hamas is using these locations to hide their missiles. Just like Hamas uses Palestinian civilians as human shields every single day.
Why are you acting like Israel needs a legitimate reason to target civilians?
Are you aware of the 1996 Qana massacre?
Literally the same situation, but in Lebanon. Refugees flooded to the UN compound to take shelter from Israeli bombing. The compound was bombed.
Have you heard of the 2006 Qana massacre?
A three story building hosting 28 people was bombed in the same fashion. All 28 died. 16 of them children. This was in the same place.
So of course, what did Israel say? First, like all IDF responses to war crimes, they denied that they had anything to do with the explosion. Then when it was proven that it was the IAF, they claimed that Hezbollah was using the Lebanese as a human shields and firing rockets.
Human rights watch reported:
"Similarly, none of the dozens of international journalists, rescue workers and international observers who visited Qana on July 30 and 31 reported seeing any evidence of Hezbollah military presence in or around the home. Rescue workers recovered no bodies of apparent Hezbollah fighters from inside or near the building."
In response to the same accusations hurled at Hamas during “cast lead”, Amnesty International reported:
”contrary to repeated allegations by Israeli officials of the use of ‘human shields,’ Amnesty International found no evidence that Hamas or other Palestinian fighters directed the movement of civilians to shield military objectives from attacks. It found no evidence that Hamas or other armed groups forced residents to stay in or around buildings used by fighters, nor that fighters prevented residents from leaving buildings or areas which had been commandeered by militants.”
I find it kind of sad that in 2014 people still take the word of the Army of a country who needs to hire people to spread its propaganda.
- The US Government: We're not going to make it federally mandatory for people to get paid a wage they can actually live off of
- The US Government: If people want to make a living, they'll just have to work 16+ hours a day
- The US Government: And if their kids end up disenfranchised because of a lack of parental involvement, well that's not our problem
- The US Government: In fact, what is our problem is creating a system that will funnel these disenfranchised youth into our prison system so they can work for corporations (that promise us money) for damn near free
- The US Government: If they don't want to fall victim to this system, then they can seek higher education
- The US Government: Except such an education will be inaccessible to most disenfranchised people and skewed in favor of the financially stable and white people
- The US Government: And we're not going to make intervention programs like sex education and conflict resolution federally mandatory, because that's the parent's job
- The US Government: The parent who is working 16 hours a day
But the state of Israel was not created for the salvation of the Jews; it was created for the salvation of the Western interests. This is what is becoming clear (I must say that it was always clear to me). The Palestinians have been paying for the British colonial policy of “divide and rule” and for Europe’s guilty Christian conscience for more than thirty years.
Finally: there is absolutely—repeat: absolutely—no hope of establishing peace in what Europe so arrogantly calls the Middle East (how in the world would Europe know? having so dismally failed to find a passage to India) without dealing with the Palestinians. The collapse of the Shah of Iran not only revealed the depth of the pious Carter’s concern for “human rights,” it also revealed who supplied oil to Israel, and to whom Israel supplied arms. It happened to be, to spell it out, white South Africa.— James Baldwin (via aloofshahbanou)
Anonymous asked: if people in france and germany wanted to BDS america, how would you feel?
This question is so odd to me. What’s the ultimate answer you seek with a query like this.
Are you asking if I want to see the brutality against and exploitation of NDN communities cease by any means necessary? Absolutely. Do I want to be alive for the day America falls apart as an inherently antiblack imperial structure built off the trafficking, brutal displacement and genocide of millions of Africans and sustained by stripping third world nations of resources, human labor and promoting global destabilization? Without a doubt. Is that a future I am willing to work towards? Completely.
I suppose my issue is it wouldn’t necessarily be up to France and Germany to choose that for any oppressed community in America or by America.
I don’t think people seem to realize that BDS isn’t an American thing. This isn’t a reactionary thing started by Americans to oppress the ~~poor Israelis. This is a movement that was started by Palestinians. Palestinians at Tel Aviv University grouped together and carefully devised a set of regulations that serve to cease the profiting off their suffering and displacement. To put pressure on Israeli politicians, as well as various internationally based corporations that calluously oppress Palestinians. Palestinians are requesting we honor those rules and that’s what we are attempting to get our universities and workplaces to do.
If there was a similar movement initiated by Indigneous communities in America to address and take to task the fundamental policies of this nation that have oppressed them since time immemorial, I would support that in every measure and request everyone do the same.
I realize my position of a settler in America, but given America’s exportation of violence abroad, I doubly serve as a recepient of American brutality and I feel that oppression against all people of color and imperialized/colonized peoples in America is intrinsically linked, so I view the liberation of my people as incomplete without the liberation of Indigenous and Black American here.
So in short, if people in France and Germany wanted to BDS America with the intention of respecting the request of Indigneous communities (or any oppressed community, for that matter) in America, I would be supportive of it.
White people get so angry at the phrase, “You cannot be racist towards white people.”
I will never understand why.
Why are you so angry that you are being treated as actual human beings? You are not reduced to caricatures, but portrayed as characters. You are treated fairly, judged not by your skin tone, but by the ways that you carry yourselves, by your actions.
Why do you want to experience racism so badly? It is not fun to be mocked, dehumanized, attacked, killed, incarcerated simply for daring to exist. It is not fun to know nothing of your history or family because it was torn apart, whether through distance or death. It is not fun to hear, at every turn, comments reminding you of your lesser status as humans.
Do you really want to turn on the tv, open a magazine, watch a movie, play a video game, and not see yourself? Or, even better, to only see yourself as a criminal, as a drunk, a mocking stereotype, or as someone to be killed off? Or would you rather see fleshed out, well-written characters with lives and personalities and feelings? I know which I’d rather pick.
If I were a white person, the phrase, “You cannot be racist towards white people,” would be the best thing I could ever hear.— i finally put some thoughts into words // thedeathcats (via taint3ed)
