In loving, living memory, John Melançon 1928 – 2007
At the end of an article in which Mayor Bloomberg stated that protesters can stay in Zuccotti Park / Liberty Plaza, and then some he said / she said lazy reporting, Politico included this, only he said, extremely lazy reporting:
Mazin Qumsiyeh on Palestinian Resistance
Jesus as first martyr of Palestinian resistance,
[note: that is *not* a good early/opening line for Jews in attendance, as a fair number will have at some point been treated as personally
because of course he non-violently resisted.
since the advent of the political zionist idea
all Germanic-speaking people
sent two rabbis to palestine
"the bride is beautiful, but she is married to another man"
Jewish colonization project
as Herzl put it, "we need to spirit them out"
but it mostly happened 1947-1949
People who peacefully broke into a high-security military compound to object to the insane nuclear arsenal there (for submarine-launchable Trident missiles) are being sent to prison for this non-violent civil disobedience, possibly for the rest of their lives, as we are talking about months in prison for a couple people in their 80s.
It was an a very stupid and evil decision by the government to prosecute and ask for lengthy prison terms. For shame.
We should all go to politicians' speeches with citation needed signs.
