There’s no wall that can’t be torn down

It really does take a whole world to starve a population. But the Palestinians are not to be counted out. This is a brilliant development… and no one describes it better than Jeff Halper:

“The people of Palestine have done it again, taking their own fate in their hands after being let down by their own “moderate” political leadership and, indeed, the entire international community in their struggle for freedom. Early this morning they simply blew up the wall separating Gaza from Egypt, breaking a siege imposed on them by an Arab government in collaboration with Israel.”

If the rest of us had some of their courage…

  1. i remove anonymous racist commentary
    i don’t see any need to engage with racist commentary in my blog by anonymous, unaccountable posters. if you want to write something that slurs people, put your name beside it and i might let it stand (and i might not). in any case it is pollution and will be cleaned up accordingly.

    1. Thank you
      Thanks for doing that Justin. The number of trolls on lefty websites is unbelievable. The stuff that Paul Street and David Petersen on zmag blogs have to put up with is crazy.

      Chau for now
