in a more perfect world, the state of israel would not exist

a buddy of mine, Tristan Anderson was seriously injured by israeli defence forces a few months ago.

international solidarity movement:
The Israeli army began to use the Ruger rifle and a high velocity tear gas canister in December 2008. The black canister, labeled in Hebrew as “40mm bullet special/long range,” can shoot over 400 meters and weighs 130 grams without the propeller. The gas canister does not make a noise when fired or emit a smoke tail and has a propeller to accelerate the weapon mid-air. A combination of the canister’s high velocity and silence is extremely dangerous and has caused numerous injuries, including a Palestinian male whose leg was broken in January 2009.

Tristan Anderson was shot as Israeli forces attacked unarmed demonstrators, gathered against construction of the annexation wall through the village of Ni’lin’s land. Another resident from Ni’lin was shot in the leg with live ammunition.

Four Ni’lin residents have been killed during demonstrations against the confiscation of their land.

Israel perceives the incident on 13 March 2009 as an “act of war.” This classification was made despite the fact that Anderson’s shooting occurred during a civilian demonstration and there were no armed hostilities during the event or surrounding it.

The consequence of such classification is that according to Israeli law, the state of Israel is not liable for any damage its’ forces have caused.

a few reasons israel should not have been created:

1. colonialism is mean. coming into a land where people already live and claiming that land as your own is colonialism. moving those people into little territories and then occupying those territories is mean.
2. religion is idiotic. religious groups certainly shouldnt have their own states.
3. states are oppressive. israel, and all other states should not exist.
4. israel seriously hurt one of my friends.
5. historically there has been an amazing amount of leftist and radical jews, some of whom were considered at the time to be zionists. though because the meaning of the term zionist has changed, they would not be called that today.
noam chomsky was a dedicated zionist activist! but with the creation of the jewish state of israel, zionism turned into a set of right wing beliefs.
