Dear Lord Rothschild,
I have much pleasure in conveying to you, on behalf of His Majesty's Government, the following declaration of sympathy with Jewish Zionist aspirations which has been submitted to, and approved by, the Cabinet.
“His Majesty's Government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.”
I should be grateful if you would bring this declaration to the knowledge of the Zionist Federation.
Arthur James Balfour
“One can expect demonic conquerors to burn and maim others' children while they proclaim 'never again' for their own, but one cannot accept the apathy of the world idly watching...” -- screamed the young canary in Palestine to no avail
“[And] Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, for our son Joel and all the IDF soldiers, for al those who have come to fight the Islamic enemy.” -- thegoldenreport
I am a Palestinian. Hath not a Palestinian eyes? hath not a Palestinian hands, organs, dimensions, senses, affections, passions? fed with the same food, hurt with the same weapons, subject to the same diseases, healed by the same means, warmed and cooled by the same winter and summer, as a Jew is? If you prick us, do we not bleed? if you tickle us, do we not laugh? if you poison us, do we not die? and if you wrong us, shall we not revenge? If we are like you in the rest, we will resemble you in that. The villany you teach me, I will execute, and it shall go hard but I will better the instruction.
Before that comes to pass, is there not a courageous people left in all of Creation who can collectively put a stop to my cataclysmic Holocaust at the hands of 'god's chosen peoples'? It has been ongoing for the past 60 years, yet I refuse to die away, my old refuse to forget, and my young are born daily even as they are exterminated daily with the support of your government and your institutions while you watch in silence. I am the natural canary in the coal mine - what is befalling me will be your fate too, one day, for they will come for you next. Population transfer and elimination from my land for me today, population reduction for you tomorrow. Help me today and you will have saved your own progeny tomorrow! Don't help me today, don't expect your screams, loud or silent, to be heard tomorrow.
But of course, Palestinians Don't Bleed!
