I am sick

Contibuted by Nadia (Pics Added)

I am sick and tired of having a president who declared that his first priority is the defense of Israel and a vice-president who declared that in his 36 years in the senate, nobody had been a better friend to Israel than he had. I want a president who thinks the defense of America is more important than the defense of any foreign country, and a vice-president who thinks it's more important to be a friend to America than to anyone else.

I'm sick and tired of the "news" media always painting Arabs and Muslims as sub-human criminals and Israel and the Jews as their innocent victims, whereas in actual fact the opposite is most often the case. I am sick and tired of seeing "Middle East analysts" who praise Israel for its "security policy" while neglecting to mention the inhuman policies of apartheid and genocide that are explicitly endorsed and brutally enforced by the Israeli government. I am sick and tired of the fact that these brutal policies are carried out with the full support of our own government, including our tax money.

I'm almost sick and tired of the so-called "comedy" we find in so many of "our" sit-coms and movies, where the plot revolves around the inner torments of a screwed-up Jewish boy who feels emasculated by his flaky but domineering Jewish mother. I used to be completely sick of this type of "programming" until I began to entertain the possibility that such attempts at comedy are actually (and perhaps unwittingly) portals through which we non-Jews can begin to understand the monsters who make policy in the US, and in Israel as well.

If I were talking about any other country or any other religion, I wouldn't have to worry about being charged with anti-Semitism, but in this case I do, which is especially ironic since the victims of Israeli policy tend to be Semitic (in the true sense of the word), whereas the perpetrators are mostly not. And I'm sick and tired of that, too.

I am especially sick and tired of Israel identifying itself as "the Jewish state" and enlisting uncritical support from Jews all over the world on the grounds that criticism of Israel could feed dangerous currents of anti-Semitism (so-called).

In effect, Israel is using the Jews of the world as a human shield, in order to protect itself from the justifiable backlash its policies would (or might) spawn, if the scale and nature of these policies were widely known.

Those Jews who allow themselves to be used in this way are dangerous enemies of the truth, and it really is no wonder that so many of them pose as investigative reporters and/or news analysts.

But I am sick and tired of that too.



I am also sick and tired of Wheelchair Palestinian  and other  "well-informed"critics, posings as Generals, comfortably sitting behind a computer at home, stirring up shit, smearing resistance movements/states. They think they are smarter than Palestinian freedom fighters putting their at risk 24x7x360.
To those I say Again: If you cannot help, your silence is appreciated.

The truth, clearly, is in the eyes of the beholder. A peaceful two-state solution that works for both the Israelis and the Palestinians is not beyond reach. It will take moderates on both sides to drive that solution. First of all, both sides have to recognize the right of the other to exist! It's time to end corruption and bigotry and for the leaders to make decisions that serve the people and end the suffering and agony on both sides.

Wake up America. You have an Israeli occupied Government. It`s time for you to do something about it.
There will never be peace in the world until Israel ceases to exist. It is because of the Israelis that you started wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and this trend will never end until the zionists go back to their homelands and leave Palestine to the Palestinians.
