White People: The Middle East is so barbaric. They’ll cut off a person’s hand just for stealing!

White People when an unarmed black kid is murdered by police in America: Yeah, but he shoplifted some cigarillos, so…

This is probably a bad example. Cutting off somebody’s head while they are fully conscious and aware is worse than an officer using deadly force when threatened with violence.

I think the point is more that there are huge glaring rafters in “thine own eye” as it comes to barbarism in American society too…and a willfulness associated with ignoring it.

Breaking: Hamas and Israel reach a long-term ceasefire agreement. The terms look very much like the November 2012 agreement, including a lack of implementation mechanisms. These terms include: easing the blockade, opening Gaza’s crossings, & extending the nautical miles available for Palestinian fishermen. In one month the parties are slated to reconvene to discuss disarmament in Gaza, building a sea port and an airport, and releasing prisoners released during Shalit prisoner exchange who were recently rearrested.
In addition to the lack of implementation mechanisms, from what we know, the agreement lacks precision. So for example, what does “easing” the blockade mean and who gets to make that determination? It’s an incredibly vague and subjective directive that does not guarantee the rehabilitation of Gaza or the [potential of] prosperity for Palestinians there. Similarly, what does opening Gaza’s 5 crossings mean? Who oversees that they are in fact open? The Israeli High Court mandated that the passage ways along the Annexation Wall be opened regularly to allow humanitarian passage (i.e., family, education, health, livelihood)…Palestinians are still waiting for that to happen and in the meantime, no meaningful redress is available.
This is all speculation and based on available information in news reports. Eager to learn more. Please share if you come across something.

  • Do not forget Michael Brown
  • Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
  • Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
  • Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
  • Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $200,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
  • Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
  • Do not forget Ferguson
