It's always a danger to see or present the latest outrage against the Palestinian people as though it were an aberration on the part of the Israelis and a mere deviation from an otherwise 'peaceful' norm. In truth, events like these are an inevitable outcome of the brutal apartheid and colonial logic that has driven Israel since its inception. A society built upon ethnic cleansing will always be true to its founding principle.

I have no election patter to contribute, other than to say fuck the Tories and the Labour Party in equal measure. They're the twin heads of the murderous hydra that is the British state.

There's been greater public outrage and horror expressed over British soldiers being potentially investigated for war crimes in Ireland than there has been about the multitude of crimes and abuses that the British army has committed. This includes, as just one illustrative case, the random killing of an innocent man in Ballymurphy; his skull was kept and used as an ashtray by the squaddies who murdered him. In a culture completely entranced by militarism, the mere notion of legal accountability is considered more obscene, more despicable than the wanton acts of torture and murder themselves.
