Unless Israelis are dying, the US media doesn’t care. Palestinian children executed, homes demolished and fisherman shot at just isn’t news

If a Palestinian ran over & crushed to death an Israeli child, an “investigation” wouldn’t be opened, that Palestinian would be in jail or dead right now. On top of that, the Palestinian’s home would be raided, a few family members would be arrested & their community’s lives would be made a living hell. But because the dead child is a 5 year old Palestinian girl, there is no “flare up,” no “ceasefire shattered,” no “calm disrupted.” It is just ignored.

If Palestinians viciously ran over a five year old Israeli girl, it would be a top story on CNN. But since the murdered girl is Palestinian and the murderers were settlers…oh well.

Execute children, shoot at fishermen, raid holy sites, deny movement, abduct fathers & enable settlers is Israel’s idea of a ceasefire.

White guy on Ebola, “Stop letting people in from those countries!” If only natives had that option with your relatives 100s of years ago

If you tweet “Don’t conflate Ferguson with Palestine” from the “occupation is bad, killing Black people is ok angle,” you can unfollow now. What happened in Ferguson isn’t an anomaly. Black people are executed every day in this country. Of course Ferguson & Palestine are different. Palestine isn’t a carbon copy of apartheid SA. Each is unique. But injustice is injustice. Don’t fetishize Palestine. Stand against oppression. Whether in Ferguson, Harlem, Baghdad or Gaza.

Bill Maher, who can’t get through a show without sexist and misogynistic rants, really does care about the plight of Muslim women. Of all the non-expert men on yesterday’s Real Time panel, Ben Affleck at least had the rational “what fucking world do you live in” response. There’s a lot of violent, fanatic, Zionist settlers who think God gave them Palestine, but Bill Maher won’t talk about them, because it doesn’t suit his agenda. After the US invaded Iraq, mass murdered civilians, and poisoned the soil with depleted uranium, what did Bill Maher say: Iraqis just don’t want our democracy. But Maher’s bigotry isn’t limited to Islam, Iraqis or Palestinians, watch him have on a Black hip hop artist, the strident racism presented as “jokes” is vile.
