Our Cause

by Alexander R Suarez-Cohen Sunday, Feb. 23, 2003 at 6:10 PM

This is in response to the growing will, a conscensus of the people, as become more organized then-ever in solidarity in resistance of a war using our new age technology & education. This is bringing our responsiblity to our system & the realities of that system, for the purpose of awarness & inspiration to our cause!

Everyone knows, or should know, that this moment of history will determine our countries future both at home & abroad. Whether we continue with the same approach, the same policy, the same arms deals, the same excess & biasness, the same greed & corruption, the same fear, the same hypocricy, is up to the people to change from pressure on our government.

We must become aware of the continued ignorance, the ignoring & denying of our countries constitution. The continued abuse of authority, the continued blockade of world events distorted in our media.

The record shows more clearly that our government decides to continue with these same techniques in their intensity & policy to the our world & at home. In our new world of technology & struggle, we are more prepared then ever to face our governments all over the world, in the millions & eventually billions.

No politician can claim to be a true leader & patriot, our new world politicians are primarily greedy liars & hypocrits, greedy for power, greedy for money, & puppeted by mysterious higher-powers & influences which many have been un-covered.

In essense, they have power but are powerless without the consent of the people, the more ignorant the people the less power they can use to defend their rights from the governments authority.

We here in the United States are lucky to have among the best educational freedoms in the world, at least at the institutional levels, we must use our knowledge for change in our great country.

The world should remember the repressive policies of the past, the denial must end, we must stick to our values, & our rights. As soverign citizens we no longer must support our government, we must support our freedom of choice.

Are our taxes used fairly? Are our votes used democratically? Are we free to put a third party in power? Must we pay taxes under the constitution? The answer to each of them is the same: NO! Our consitution protects us so we must fight against the hypocrisy & false authority of our government.

Our countries first war was of a Revolution, I hope our lasts can be of a Revolution, but by peacful means, since our world has changed such a great deal, we have new responsiblity to our new century. Dr. King showed us a new way to resists, a way which originated in the Palestinan society.

Many within the political arena, who have known several presidents personally & most importantly along with the people, claim that the worst of the presidents is from George W. Bush. Voted illegally into office, & using the fear or Sept 11th to continue his opressive & hypocritical policy.

We the people must realize that we are a part of a system & that we have responsiblities to that system. We must realize the influences we have in this system, the power we can use in this system, the steps our comrades make everyday in their sacrifice in the non-violent movement, such as in the Palestinian society, which our government has sought to destroy through generations, from ovewhelming support of Zionists Occupation.

Israel, a strong country, but weakened by Occupation, a small country comparable to a State the size of New Hampshire, or Vermont, but which has one of the strongest & most advanced military. Israel has more support from our government alone, then the whole of continental Africa.

Their regime has betrayed & used us through history & has Occupied & enslaved an entire people, among the last regimes in the world to continue repressive Occupation.

We in the US, & in much of the world, at least those who are aware of their history, know all too well the suffering of Occupation. Mostly, by the British in particular. The resistance from Occupation, Imperialism, Colonialism, etc, is in our origin, our countries very core at the start of our first Revolution, the history shows incredible irony.

Occupations in Palestine, whether Roman, British or Zionists, whether victimized from Christians, Jews or Moslems, Palestinans have faced the brutalities with non-violence & love, the original people to use the non-violence struggle to resists, in-bedded in Palestinian society for thousands of years, which is now supported by internationals, including Israelis.

It is maintained, the superior cause, & the militarism introduced by the Occupations, lastly from Zionism, has sadly been resulted in violence as some was picked up among Palestinians in response.

After 60 years of peaceful resistance against Zionism (1920s-1980s) they still resists by whatever means. It was not until the first violent Intifada (Uprising) that the world finally started to pay attention to the Palestinians cries.

Finally, in the 90s the suicide bomd was introduced. Some viewed these sensless acts with sympathy & understanding, some saw justification for the violent resistance & others saw justification for continued Occupation in its intensity & growth.

From the International Solidarity Movement working in the 1967 Occupied Territories (Gaza Strip, West Bank) since the first Intifada (1987?). From a desperate region which Israeli settlers are quickly leaving & protesting their continued stay forced upon them from their governments.

Most stay of these settlers try to abuse & control Palestinians, most of the few thousand want to leave as they are surrounded by millions & millions of the indigenous people, after generations the illegal settlers are getting sick & tired of their stay in the region as they cannot accept others existence.

A conflicting war of 5 powers, the International & Local Peace Resistance, The Illegal Paramilitary & Civilian Settlers, The Israli Soldiers (Mostly Drafted Boys), The Israeli Government, & dont forget the people!

Dont forget the brave souls, the refusniks suffering in jails & in refuge, the journalists putting their life on the line, fighting the biasness & ignorance for truth the freedom-fighters, we can all be called fighters of freedom, the activists, the humanitarianists, we represent humanity through our actions, the honest politician, those few left.

Those leaders in the United Nations, such as Rep. France, who relaize their responsiblities & duties to their people, & refuse to sucumb to US bribery. Never forget the importance of education, of awarness of your responsilbity to justice in this world!

The record shows that majority of the illegal Israeli settlers we activists, etc, face, they will leave when their governments favorable descision is made & easy step, but what propoganda tries to complicate, once the Settlers-Soldiers leave the peace process can begin.

The Settler issues was determined by various polls which are not completely reliable but have showns accuracy. There fear & hate overhwhelmes them we the activists are making the difference!

Our presence from the International Solidarity Movement & others, is an Occupation based on love, & voluntarily we sacrifice, instead by force & fear from an Israeli soldier. There is nothing stronger then the heart of a volunteer & their is nothing stronger then love, love will triumph over hate, love conqueors all!!!

The only motivation against us are based on fear & ecnomic benefits, whatever idealogical excuses used before are no longer legitimate or just.

Our encouragment is based on love, sincere & voluntary compassion for others, fufilling responsiblities, what our government has supported for generations we are now facing & bravely putting ourselves on the line for peace which we directly effect in the system through realization & action.

We have our responsiblities at home, which I want to be the full focus. How can you determine victory & defeat when you cannot see the future but only predict? Are their victors in a war based on fear & violence? Where will their be room for victory with a war in Iraq, nothing is enevitable with the resistance of the people. love conqueors all, we will triumph, our cause us stronger.

Through all this mongering we will respond with a cry much more stronger & sincere by the people! Remember your responsiblities in this world, in this system!

There cannot, their must not, we must see how we are influencing the world, we must fight our fight here at home, & those brave souls that join in the international struggle & put their life on the land, I send you my best.

The politicians, fear us, our cause, & our power & influence in society. Our cause it comes voluntarily, it is based on love, their is nothing stronger then the heart of a volunteer & nothing stronger then love, our just cause will conqueor all in the end, we must see the long-run.

This is only when we are determined & maintain the usage of our technology, the internet to grow awarness & solidarity all over the world.

Never forget your responsbilities, your influence, your power, must be used to make an impact in this life, in this system, in our troubled world!

Love Will Triumph Over Hate, Love, Compassion Sincerity, Voluntary Sacrifice, Non-Violence, We Have No Doubt, No Fear, No Force that can stop us, Our Cry is louder then the rest, & we will overcome in the end!
