i need this right now

If you are looking to major U.S. news networks to give you information on the “War”, then you are being given an inaccurate view of what is happening in Gaza at this very moment. The rest of the world stands with Palestine; have you ever wondered why? 

The creation of Israel is illegitimate and unethical. There is no debate, there is no war; at this point, it’s just about become genocide.








If you want to be able to say the “n-word,” you better be ready to accept the “n-word” lifestyle that comes with it.


comicsanshater said: yup. Israel is a terrorist state. that's why they strictly instruct their soldiers to only fire at terrorist bases in Gaza. ok.


  1. the use of violence and intimidation in the pursuit of political aims.

please tell me why over 70% of Palestinians killed are civilians

please tell me why Israel attacked a UN school, which in the process has killed at least 16 people


for fucks sake, they bombed a fucking hosptial

at this point, they can call anything a “terrorist base” to justify their actions. the point is that over 1000 Palestinians are dead, 7/10 of those deaths are civilians, with 2/10 being children. 

There is no debate. Israel is a terrorist state.

❝ The problem, it seems, is actually the blinders—the inability to engage meaningfully in the conversation. According to the white fragility model, because white folks have the choice to move through the world not thinking about race very often, our race-thinking muscles atrophy and we (unless we consciously do some hard work thinking about these things) can collapse under the slightest weight when it comes to talking about it. We start to sputter, and get defensive, and become angrily dismissive instead of staying calm and talking it out in a sensible way. ❞


Brendan Kiley’s piece on the Slog is a really good summarization of the whole Mikado/racist theater situation and the unbelievably problematic response. 

Seattle is a city with a race problem — and white liberals denying it isn’t making it go away. 

It’s like we’ve said before — even if you don’t see it as offensive, that doesn’t mean it didn’t offend someone, thus making it offensive. 

Our motto, with this and all situations like it: Just say you’re sorry and try to learn something, rather than doing mental backflips trying to rationalize why someone else’s offense at your action was the wrong response. 

ALSO — and here is a sentence I never thought I’d ever, ever type — go read the Yelp reviews. For the first time possibly ever in the history of that godforsaken website, they’re actually really insightful.

❝ Your voice sounds completely different in different languages. It alters your personality somehow. I don’t think people get the same feeling from you. The rhythm changes. Because the rhythm of the language is different, it changes your inner rhythm and that changes how you process everything.
When I hear myself speak French, I look at myself differently. Certain aspects will feel closer to the way I feel or the way I am and others won’t. I like that—to tour different sides of yourself. I often find when looking at people who are comfortable in many languages, they’re more comfortable talking about emotional stuff in a certain language or political stuff in another and that’s really interesting, how people relate to those languages. ❞

La Paz (AFP) - Bolivia on Wednesday renounced a visa exemption agreement with Israel in protest over its offensive in Gaza, and declared it a terrorist state.

President Evo Morales announced the move during a talk with a group of educators in the city of Cochabamba.

It “means, in other words, we are declaring (Israel) a terrorist state,” he said.

The treaty has allowed Israelis to travel freely to Bolivia without a visa since 1972.

Morales said the Gaza offensive shows “that Israel is not a guarantor of the principles of respect for life and the elementary precepts of rights that govern the peaceful and harmonious coexistence of our international community.”

More than two weeks of fighting in Gaza have left 1,300 dead and 6,000 wounded amid an intense Israeli air and ground campaign in response to missile attacks by the Islamist militant group Hamas.

In the latest development, 20 people were killed after two Israeli shells slammed into a United Nations school, drawing international protests.

Bolivia broke off diplomatic relations with Israel in 2009 over a previous military operation in Gaza.

In mid-July, Morales filed a request with the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights to prosecute Israel for “crimes against humanity.”
