I won’t forget!

Three teens there.

One teen here.

Mohammed Abu Khdeir (16 years old) was abducted and murdered in Jerusalem

Mohammed Abu Khdeir (16 years old) was abducted and murdered in Jerusalem

Oh, don’t forget the two teens before the three.

And the teen in 2005. The soldier emptied his rifle into her to confirm the kill.

Tonight a good friend in Gaza tells me she feels nothing. “Is that normal?” she asks.

Maybe I feel too much; why haven’t the miles between Gaza and Albuquerque anesthetized my heart? That was then (Nov. 2012).  Such a polite little war, day after day.

This is now.

I want to set Netanyahu on fire and watch him burn. Would he scream? Would I feel pleasure?

Maybe this is the Third Intifada; maybe not.

How can life go on as though there is no Holocaust happening right under our noses?

Oh yes, that forbidden word. We shall not whisper it unless we honor the victims of the past. BUT THERE ARE VICTIMS TODAY! And the perpetrators are just as evil as Hitler’s Nazis.

No! No! Not THAT word!

Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi…Nazi

Israel is a racist, fascist, Nazi state. THERE, I said it. (or wrote it)

Sticks and stones might break my bones … (American F-16s and bombs are surely breaking plenty in Gaza tonight) … but words will never hurt me.

4 responses to “I won’t forget!

  1. PS. What I particularly was responding to is the statement:

    “I want to set Netanyahu on fire and watch him burn. Would he scream? Would I feel pleasure?” Not what I feel is the “real” Lora.

    What would be better is for Netanyahu to live, and make a public declaration of his understanding of the evil acts committed against the Palestinians, and offer sincere ways of reconciliation and how to stop these heinous acts. His death and suffering would not do that, que no?

  2. “How can life go on as though there is no Holocaust happening right under our noses” Amen!!!!!!

    While I can understand and emphasize with your rage……..

    But
    IMO, one needs to STILL pursue compassion, and avoid vengeance and revenge. The **ACTS** of Netanyahu may indeed be evil to the extreme, but to focus on him as evil gets one nowhere. “An eye for an eye and we’re all blind.” Ditto for using “Nazis” rather than articulating
    the evil acts is counterproductive (and historically ignorant, IMO). One needs to understand the underlying social and cultural forces.
