I woke up this morning with the horrific news. An Israeli attack on one of the ships of the peace convoy Ship To Gaza. It was said that the demonstrators where defending themselves with axes and cudgels when the IDF was entering the ship, and that was the reason to for the IDF to open fire and to kill nineteen and wound over sixty. This is nothing new IDF, a trigger-happy bunch of extreme nationalists, have a habit to kill defenders with nothing more to protect themselves then rocks.
But this time the victims is not anonymous Palestinians that we in the west sometimes feel sorrow for as a collective and as a global guilt. The victims this time are our neighbors and friends. This time we don’t have to think harder, better and brighter to feel rage. The victim can be you if you have the guts to stand against one of the world’s strongest military forces.
Act Now!!! Act Up!! Silence=Death!! to use an AIDS activist logo from the 80’s. Join the BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) against Israel. Talk about it, write about it and rage about it.
