Taking Responsibility

By: John Caruso

I've mentioned in passing here that I worked with the International Solidarity Movement in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip during Israel's 2002 invasion.  After many years I've finally posted the full account, starting with our breaking of the siege of Arafat's compound and ending with our breaking of the siege of the Church of the Nativity, with stops in between in Ramallah, Jenin, Gaza and Hebron.  Despite the changes that have taken place since then there's (unfortunately) hardly a word that doesn't still apply today.

If you're curious, you can read it here.

Have they built a copy of The Reichstag in Jerusalem yet? They gots the tanks&bombers, barbwired ghettos with Gaza as a personal Warsau ghetto. All they need now is a Reichstag to burn down and blame the Communists.

The Children Of Abraham, Isaac,& Jacob should just redeem The Land. Trade properties in Miami or New York of equal value to The areas now being settled illegally. Those displaced Palestinians could live in Ft,Lauderdale and help the CONTINUING rippoff of the REDMAN for the western hemisphere. I'm positive that living in New York or south Florida is easier than Gaza or the West Bank.
