oh, israel

the palestinian authorities have given up on any possibilities for peace and as a result the last week has seen a frightening number of attacks on the israeli civilian population. none of this has been reported in the media, because racism, so to all of you who haven't heard what's going on: you don't know what you don't know, and when you do find out it will be through an outrageously biased filter.

it's sad for me that this needs to be said so often: what's going on over there is far more complex than the oversimplified bullshit that's reported by your trusted news sources. if you consider yourself at all humanitarian, if you value human rights and dignity and freedom, you're not going to hear the whole truth from either side but you're certainly not going to hear it by only listening to one of them.
