‘Compromise’: a cartoon

An excellent cartoon just in from comrade David Baldinger. The cartoon captures the Orwellian rhetoric and term ‘compromise’ as used by the Israeli regime so well, as it continues to build illegal Jewish-only settlements in flagrant contravention of international law, peace agreements and all precepts and percepts of human rights:

    Excellent! Thanks! This inequity is hard to say so simply in words alone.
    BTW, some dear friends of mine just returned from a once-in-a-lifetime visit to Sydney, and loved it.

    Wonderful to hear, Monte, glad they enjoyed it. Its autumn (fall) here now but the past week has been quite sunny and warm during the day. Let me know if ever you have the opportunity to visit. I know its a long distance and comparatively high expense because of that — though the US and Australian dollars compare more favourably than do the US dollar and Euro exchange rate!

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"
