ilmuroWords…
It’s an iron wall, a psychological wall. Hard to break through. The worst. Nevertheless, it doesn’t need anything more than what words can do to implement the power of those who found out the way to benefit of it.
First, terrorism. It should be the murderous and residual weapon of what’s supposed to be the weaker party. States with regular armies shouldn’t need to use terrorism. They do. Because it’s often cheaper and always misleading. Moreover, as they decide who is terrorist and who is not, they can use this mere noun as a powerful weapon, so that, by labelling the enemy in front of the world, they are able to cover all what they can’t reach with ordinary arms. It’s the strength of politics and deception.
What happens in Palestine without this word terrorism? What happens without the anti-semitism bullets, i.e. the Holocaust exploitation based on the blind sense of guilt of Europe, on the inner bad faith of the Zionists and on crass ignorance of a great part of the world?
And money…
And what happens – last but not least – without US money that was gained by blackmail thanks the Israel Lobby? In this latter respect, Israeli financing itself through the Lobby is the most profitable investment one can imagine. Pay one, gain hundreds.
Money, yes. That is not psychological. By the way, I would argue that there are also some people in the neighborhood, now and then, that sell their dignity and their brothers’ life for some loose change. But we can try not to unite people’s attitude with their leaders’ behaviour.

Heavy burden, then, upon Palestinian shoulders. I guess the last sixty years of Palestine history would have been otherwise very different. On the contrary, although Israelis have been experiencing a mere prevedibile reaction to any occupation, have benefited – since no one dares to expose their egregious crimes, thanks the omnipresent antisemyth-weapon – of the yearly award for the luckiest occupiers in the world.

Humbly our voice

I’ve read, and I know that “the world” has forgotten Syria for two years. That’s correct, but there ain’t anything as “the world”. There’s people, and we can only work on them. On us.
Not taking a position is tantamount to side with the oppressor. We know this very well, inasmuch as we’ve behaved like this (mainly from our safe living rooms) for so long, without a shiver for the slaughters that were happening all over the outside world.
Let’s not lie, today.
We’ve watched entire peoples being torn apart, notwithstanding any evident injustice. Seldom, we’ve taken side for the one or the other just as we would do looking at a soccer match.
But from the safety of our homes, well hardly we have the right to express our thoughts. For sure we are not entitled to yell (from outside, just as somewhat delegates combatants, from a distance, into a foreign war) the rights and the wrongs of one or the other, insofar as we are well away from the blood and neither with brain nor with soul we are able to perceive and evaluate what is happening. And the media just keep on adding new lies to old ones.
Now, are we really able to estimate that a US strike will lead to any better? If we are obviously not willing to support a murderous dictator (for such he is) how can we trust a long since designed US/Israel further invasion of the Middle East towards the next war of aggression on Iran? Are we ready to claim the good faith of one party – considered as a whole – against the bad faith of the other? Are we willing to be fooled, once again, by mandate of the imperial war machine? For the umpteenth time, by the way, in the last 10 years?
I fear we’re not. Nor we are able to assess our good faith, in this case, while we have failed to be honest in tens of other occasions.
There’s so little we can give to the people of Syria, maybe our heart, humbly our voice in the arena among the nations, some concrete humanitarian help, food, welcome and accomodation. Certainly not our powerful weapons, nor our inconsistent advice.
