Right now in the U.S. it seems like you have to fit in a box. You either have to be pro-Israel, which means you’re anti-Palestinian, or you have to be pro-Palestinian, which means you’re anti-Israel.

I see that as such a false dichotomy. I think if you support the state of Israel as a safe and secure homeland for the Jewish people, then you have to also support the creation of the Palestinian state with the same ambitions that the Palestinian people to have: to live in their own state.

If you support the Palestinians and their right to live in freedom and in their own state, you have to support that for the Jews to live in Israel. You can’t be pro-Israel without being pro-Palestinian, and you can’t be pro-Palestinian without being pro-Israel, and all of that is pro-peace.

Todd Deatherage, quoted in Relevant Magazine, "Is Peace Possible?"  (via theringofwords)

Yeah, it’s nice throw around phrases like “Palestinians have the right to live in freedom,” but what does that actually mean in practical terms? For example, why don’t Palestinians have this right, right now? And how does the existence of a zionist state prevent Palestinians from having that right? What of the Palestinians — being the victims of ethnic cleansing who live in refugee camps — where is their right to live in freedom?

Unfortunately, the answers to these questions aren’t nearly as important to chattering idiots like this Todd Deatherage as is the self-satisfied feeling of having popped a squat on internet browsers all over the world and pinched off a hot, steaming log of above-it-all neutrality.

I’ve kept a razor under my tongue since I was a small toddler with a tight belt

I haven’t been able to kiss a woman with an open mouth, my friend

Cause I’m afraid that I’d split her lip

Is that sick?

I don’t even think I’m dealing with dystopias. It’s just versions of what I see the world is now. Brazil was about then; it just happens to be that now is even more like Brazil than the world was then!
