fuck you Bibi
The sharpshooter sees the demonstrators from a distance of hundreds of yards. The hairs of his sights move at random, then settle on an individual. He shoots. The person drops on the spot. A joyous cry “Yesh” is heard all around from unseen soldiers who have been watching. “Yesh” means “got him”, a jubilant yell, such as would accompany a hunter’s success in killing a rabbit.
I, Uri Avnery, soldier number 44410 of the Israel army, hereby dissociate myself from the army sharpshooters who murder unarmed demonstrators along the Gaza Strip, and from their commanders, who give them the orders, up to the commander in chief. We don’t belong to the same army, or to the same state. We hardly belong to the same human race.

The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement will free Palestine, just like it freed South Africa many years ago

Every Society

for the last 4000 years has found that debt grows more rapidly than people can pay.

The problem is that a small oligarchy, about 10% of the population, to whom all of the debts are owed to do not want them to be annulled.

That’s the one thing they will never do.

They would rather annul the bottom 90%’s right to live than to annul the money that’s due to them. They would rather strip the planet and shrink the population and be paid than give up their claims. But giving up their claims is exactly what needs to happen. That’s the political fight of the 21st century.
