History Is Relevant

History Is Relevant! If it was not, then we would not find quotes from the past that resonate in modern times. After all, "Those who do not know history's mistakes, are doomed to repeat them." We are desperately longing for something more in today's world, maybe if we listen to the voices crying out from the past we can find what we are missing.

Don’t believe Obama’s crocodile tears. The U.S. is just as guilty as Netanyahu.

To look at the European Union and the countries of Europe which stood back and watched Jewish people go to the gas chambers now stand back and watch the Zionist offspring of those victims turned perpetrator and torture the children of Palestine and do nothing about it.

And here in Ireland, where more than anybody else, we understand from living, historic experience, oppression and repression and slaughter because we wanted nothing more than to live in peace and dignity in land that belonged to us. And to watch the Irish government, who very recently acquired permanent status at the
United Nations, use their very first vote on a human rights issue to have nothing to say! - for fear of offending America - for fear of offending the European Union - to which it in now hock in the European banks….

And something that people in America might want to think: The population of Gaza is very little more than the population of Northern Ireland. But the people are living in a strip of land that barely runs the length of the side of Lough Neagh. And the number of people killed in less than three weeks and injured in Gaza in less than three weeks, Sandy, is more, more than we lost in thirty years! How can people watch it and not condemn the State of Israel for the inhumanity and war crimes they have committed?

"Every single member of my family on both sides were exterminated. Both my parents were in the Warsaw ghetto uprising. And it is precisely and exactly because of the lessons my parents taught me and my two siblings that I will not be silent when Israel commits its crimes against the Palestinians. And I consider nothing more despicable than to use their suffering and their matyrdom to try to justify the torture, the brutalization, the demolition of homes, that Israel daily commits against the Palestinians. So I refuse any longer to be intimidated or brow-beaten by the tears. If you have any heart in your, you would be crying for the Palestinians, not for what’s been done." - Dr. Norman Finkelstein.

Uncle Sam doesn’t even try to “wash the blood off” anymore…

socialismartnature:

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.

Wow. US VOTES NO. What a suprise. Too bad to UN doesn’t have any real power, if we ignore their rulings I’m sure Israel will too.

standwithpalestine:

Israel puts on a show for the world’s media by reminding them over and over again how they tell Palestinian civilians to “evacuate” (which is an insult in itself since they’re not allowed to leave Gaza due to the illegal blockade), but the reality on the ground is that they tell Palestinians ‘we will kill you no matter where you go - you are our targets’ by bombing all the places they’re taking shelter in - ambulances, hospitals and UN schools.
