"THE JEWS IN PALESTINE, 1938" (tags)
IT IS WRONG AND INHUMAN TO IMPOSE THE JEWS ON THE ARABS [in Palestine]. WHAT IS GOING ON IN PALESTINE TODAY CANNOT BE JUSTIFIED BY ANY MORAL CODE OF CONDUCT. ... Surely IT WOULD BE A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY... ... BUT ACCORDING TO THE ACCEPTED CANONS OF RIGHT AND WRONG, NOTHING CAN BE SAID AGAINST THE ARAB RESISTANCE [in Palestine] IN THE FACE OF OVERWHELMING ODDS. LET THE JEWS WHO CLAIM TO BE THE CHOSEN RACE PROVE THEIR TITLE BY CHOOSING THE WAY OF NON-VIOLENCE FOR VINDICATING THEIR POSITION ON EARTH. ... HE CAN COMMAND THE ATTENTION AND RESPECT OF THE WORLD BY BEING THE CHOSEN CREATION OF GOD, INSTEAD OF SINKING TO THE BRUTE WHO IS FORSAKEN BY GOD.

Why SMALL Protests - People Want VIolence! (tags)
she says that everyone cooperated and planned at every single protest and then she backs this up with lies from some lady saying that in the 60s rude behavior was intolerable. All of this is the kind of middle class mentality that lies so easily with omissions and generalizations. I wish Jeneine had just made this up – ignorance is easier to tolerate than pre-meditated lying.

When is Political Violence Justified? (tags)
Today I am writing about a very sensitive subject. Indeed, at this point in time it is a very dangerous subject to write about. The subject is political violence: when is it justified and when is it not justified. There are many positions on this topic and like most topics there are extreme positions. One extreme position is that political violence is never justified. This is the belief held by pacifists and followers of Gandhi. At the other extreme we find believers in political violence ranging from Stalinists, some Anarchists, Fascists, to Imperialists, among others. These political ideologies generally support the use of violence to achieve their ends.

Gandhi and the (establishment-supported) Myth of Effective Nonviolence (tags)
Gandhi's life was history's longest experiment in nonviolent political action. The result of the experiment is fairly clear: An exploitative class structure cannot be broken without violence somewhere along the way. Property rights, defended by state violence, have never yielded to the peaceful pressure of the exploited class. Put in other terms, no exploiting class has ever left the stage of history without being pushed.
