Pappe talk in Manchester

Interesting talk given by Ilan Pappe, where he discusses the occupation after 1967 and how the decisions that are still being taken today were made even before the seven day war; the decision not to carry out an ethnic cleansing such as the one that was carried out in 1948, the decision to keep the land and imprison the people living there, the decision to sell this occupation as a peace drive, the decsion to pass laws to support the occupation. Interesting stuff, certainly worth a watch and you can draw your own conclusion and there is me drawing a little comparison with a certain meglomaniac who liked to pass laws, occupy someone else’s land, imprison whole peoples, revelled in collective punishment, destroyed houses, killed people, and then try to sell it as something else. “Seit 5.45 Uhr wird jetzt zurückgeschossen! Und von jetzt ab wird Bombe mit Bombe vergolten! “Yes, him!

There are a lot of poor bastards out there being used and abused; it is just not cricket "old bean". Something tells me that ignorance is not bliss, but is, in fact, simply ignorance and in the global village we cannot look the other way.
