Acknowledged differences may create mutual respect, but hazy misunderstandings bring forth nothing but prejudice and rejection.

Too often we judge without cause and we realized that to truly understand the heart of a nation is to know and communicate with the people.

In its response to the suffering of the people in Gaza and in Syria, the West has once again shown its impotence and moral bankruptcy.

Breaking via ABC News: UN Human Rights Council votes to open inquiry into alleged war crimes in Gaza; U.S. is the ONLY “no” vote.

That’s because the U.S. is a direct accomplice to every war crime that Israel commits.

USA, the world’s #1 killing machine.

We are forever told that America has a free press, except when it comes to Israel, and then it is obviously an open gov’t propaganda agency.

The Israeli government says that the burning of an Israeli teenager was the work of “extremists” and not part of its “ethics” … Indeed, its “ethics” entails bombing civilians and destroying by tens, hundreds, and in the recent past by the thousands. It is much more “noble”!

The international community has “obviously” understood : it is the right of Israel to defend themselves against rockets that their technology allows them to destroy and / or divert flight.

The ethics of the State of Israel, from all political parties, is imposed on the world and Arab governments, as Asian and Western fold hypocritically. And because this hypocrisy is shared, and international, human beings and citizens around the world should make it an international cause of defending the dignity of our humanity.

Americans on Twitter post how much Israel looks like a terrorist state.

I wonder if Americans wonder what they look like to the rest of the world.

I am a survivor of the Jewish Holocaust, the Nazis’ mass murder of Europe’s Jews. The tragic experience of my family and community under Hitler makes me alert to the suffering of other peoples denied their human rights today — including the Palestinians…. For me, the Israeli government’s actions toward the Palestinians awaken horrific memories of my family’s experiences under Hitlerism: the inhuman walls, the checkpoints, the daily humiliations, killings, diseases, the systematic deprivation. There’s no escaping the fact that Israel has occupied the entire country of Palestine, and taken most of the land, while the Palestinians have been expelled, walled off, and deprived of human rights and human dignity.
