A entire town's crops are killed, and the irrigation is destroyed.
NOT ONE PERSON ARRESTED. Reason given, an israeli water company was now drawing from the same aquifer, so it's now their water... all of it.
American's with the Christian Peacemaker Team who were there, including the ones filming, couldn't believe what their tax dollars were paying for.
One can be heard asking troopers as they walk by "Why are you terrorizing this village?", but he is ignored.
An IDF troop comes into town, and starts destroying an years crop for the people of the town.
This garden would provide not only enough food to feed the entire town, when mixed with the goats they already raised, it would also supply enough for
them to take to other towns and sell for money or trade for supplies.
I guess when NetanYAHOO said he was putting them on a diet, he meant it.
They want these people to be dependent on the israeli government, so they can be controlled.
When the women try to figure out why they are destroying their food when they've done nothing wrong, American bought tear gas is launched their
They even bring in heavy machinery to take away the donated hoses and water tanks so they cannot rebuild.
Israel receives 3 MILLION US TAX DOLLARS a day which not only pays for the bullets to kill women and children, but also pays the storm trooper to do
This isn't what I work 10 of 40 hours a week to fund with my tax money.
I don't understand why the world lets Israel get away with behaving the way they do.
Milking everyones guilt over the holocaust is getting old, there have been many more people killed in other wars, and even the witch burnings. Yet as
soon as someone speaks out against them, it's considered a hate crime.
"I don't understand why the world lets Israel get away with behaving the way they do."
Who is this 'world' you are referring to, if not each indiivdual in it? I think the more relevant question we all have to ask ourselves is 'Why am
I letting Israel get away with this?'
Questions like the one above are very common but serve no real purpose, because 'the world' is an abstract, an intangible, which therefore can't
make decisions and can't act.
If we each start to take responsibility for our own non-action in the face of so many of these things which we abhor, and rather ask ourselves why we
are letting them happen, and what we (as an individual) can do about it, then things can and will start to change in a million ways as each one finds
the answer to their question and acts upon it.
I guess I am referring more to the different governments, the UN.
It's sad that we, as individuals feel so helpless in this type of situation. I have heard about non Israeli Jewish people denouncing the behaviour of
the Israeli government, but anyone else who is not Jewish can't even speak up, it is considered anti-Semitism, a hate crime. At least in Canada,
anyways. Punishable by jail. Even though it's the actions of the government there that people are hating.
You're right. As individuals we should be trying to figure out who to write to, and how to word things in such a way that we don't end up in jail,
for speaking up. It's not hate for the people there, it's hate for the government's way of governing. Although sadly, I don't think anything is
going to change.
