Also, I’m leaving in less than a month and anxiety is starting to set in and I’m pretty sure I’m on the brink of some sort of panic attack.

And tbh, I just want to sit under a tree, smoke, talk, laugh, and cry about anything and everything.

For a star to be born, there is one thing that must happen: a gaseous nebula must collapse.

So collapse.
Crumble.

Q: "I’ve always known pro Israelis are deluded and ahistorical, but this post takes the cake." Dounyazed - Just out of principal I don't see how you could be so inclined to have such a hatred towards pro-Israelis just for being pro-Israelis. Surely you know better, and the current situation is vastly more complicated than you or I could possibly fathom. It's not as black as white as "The Palestinians are being oppressed by the Israelis, murdering children and stealing their land", just as it's not

pax-arabica:

as simple to say “Israel are 100% in the right and will always be in the right”, otherwise the world would have taken action long, long ago. Please don’t lie to us or yourself. Please answer this and if you actually say something thats unbiased then ill be on your side.

“Just out of principal.”

You don’t know what you’re talking about.

As a Palestinian, living currently under ISRAELI OCCUPATION, having lost friends and literally my entire childhood to Israel, you’re asking me why I then hate people who directly support my oppressors? Do you think everyone has your privilege of being far and detached and unaffected?

"The Palestinians are being oppressed by the Israelis, murdering children and stealing their land" is EXACTLY what is happening. Do you understand power dynamics and structures?

I’ll make things really simple for you: When the Palestinians do anything, it is in response to a brutal occupation and the ethnic cleansing we’ve been facing for the better part of a century now.

When the Israelis do something, it’s to uphold their military occupation. It’s to uphold the status quo and their ethnic supremacy at our expense.

There are worlds of difference between these two, and don’t you ever dare equate them.

It is not complicated in the slightest. It’ actually very simple, and the mystification of the “current situation” has been an Israeli tactic since day one. If you go back in history, a 5 year old could tell you that a bunch of fresh colonists establishing an ethnocracy at the expense of the indigenous population is point-blank wrong, by any standard.

You’re incredibly naïve if you think the world would ever take action based on “justice” and not interests. Is that really your standard for morality? Did the world take immediate action with regards to Apartheid South Africa? Algeria? No it took ages for them to move a finger, and it was the efforts of the indigenous population that resulted in victory, not a complacent, apathetic world.

Your problem is, that you seem to think that you’re so much more sophisticated and enlightened in taking this detached non-stance. Such positions only reinforce the status quo and the narrative of the side with all the power. I don’t need or want your condescending “support” on our side. We have history on our side, we have the solidarity of all decolonizing and marginalized peoples on our side, and the truth.

And a few dozen years down the line, when Israel is just a bad memory, remember this conversation. Remember that you stood and squabbled on the sidelines, like all “objective” middle grounders.

Just like the middle grounders on ending child labor, the middle grounders on women’s suffrage, and the middle grounders on the civil rights movement.

Palestine doesn’t have armed forces; they just have a state that’s still being created. So it’s not a war between two armies. Israel has the world’s most modern weapons and plans it so that, in a very precise way, the missiles reach where they want them to reach. Undoubtedly, they’ve committed genocide Nicolas Maduro, President of Venezuela (via momo33me)
