To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize. - Voltaire
There’s plenty I don’t agree with when it comes to Bill Maher, but I do think he’s pretty on-the-ball in this interview. Click the link for the whole thing, but I think this excerpt is the essential highlight.(via girlgrowingsmall)
Maher’s point is abso-frikken-lutely ridiculous. You can not defend stolen land. By its very nature Israel’s defense of stolen land or property is murder and genocide. Israel brought this mess upon themselves by not keeping to borders and have sustained (and worsened) the situation for both sides since the late 40s . That’s the harsh reality. They can twist words and point fingers, but like spoiled children will never accept responsibility for their fucked up hateful policies. Until there is a 1-state solution with equal rights and end to apartheid like USA and South Africa, nothing will change. And that my friends is the kicker… Israelis enjoy special rights that they don’t want to give up, at any cost. So murder on, bomb, cut power, starve, torture, bulldoze, beat, burn alive, shoot in cold blood, use banned weapons and blame the other side you selfish bastards, the world is waking up, and YOU WILL be held accountable to the Geneva Convention and UN one day.
