What you’re not shown about Israel

If you haven’t already viewed this trailer for If Americans Knew, it is an excellent compilation of prominent previous US Representatives, Senators and Ambassadors talking about the consequences of blind support for Israel and how the Lobby have hijacked American foreign policy (5:36)

AP Erases Video of Israeli Soldier Shooting Palestinian Boy: also shows that this a systemic, not a sporadic or one-off incident. Innocent, unarmed children are routinely targeted (5:54)

East Targets: Also an If Americans Knew production, First saw this at David Baldinger’s blog. A group of courageous women show how the Israeli government discourages Palestinians returning through humiliation, harassment and inappropriate strip-searching, including of an activist who survived the Holocaust. Note: indelicate but not mature content (12:49)

Timely Reminders

"Those who crusade, not for God in themselves, but against the devil in others, never succeed in making the world better, but leave it either as it was, or sometimes perceptibly worse than what it was, before the crusade began. By thinking primarily of evil we tend, however excellent our intentions, to create occasions for evil to manifest itself."
-- Aldous Huxley

"The only war that matters is the war against the imagination. All others are subsumed by it."
-- Diane DiPrima, "Rant", from Pieces of a Song.

"It is difficult
to get the news from poems
yet men die miserably every day
for lack
of what is found there"
-- William Carlos Williams, "Asphodel, That Greeny Flower"
