Self-defense: Confiscating the land of an entire indigenous population of people, shoving them to the coasts, trapping them behind walls and barriers, stripping said people of their rights, resources and livelihoods, creating generation of refugees, demolishing homes, violating international laws, targeting a democratically elected government that you have labeled as ‘terrorists’, breaking ceasefires and bombing Al Shifa hospital and outpatient clinic, sending missiles to demolish civilian neighborhoods and markets, being granted billions of dollars of aid and war tools by the United States of America, saying the democratically elected government uses human shields whilst simultaneously blowing up a few kids playing on a beach.

U.S. Democrats plan to give Israel an addition $225 million for military spending. The same bill also cuts $1 billion of emergency funds meant to deal with the 50,000 undocumented child migrants held in crowded and unsanitary border facilities.
Israel already received $504 million for the joint U.S.-Israel Missle Defense Program for the Fiscal Year of 2014. That is not including the $3.1 Billion the Obama Administration spent on Foreign Military Financing (FMF) for Israel for the Fiscal Year 2014.

Fuck this

"believing in yourself is not a luxury. it is where the wildness enters your genius. it is wanton survival and burning indifference to what and who you are not supposed to be. it is the deepest revolution possible, the arc and heft of the universe in one strategic thought; vital to the weight and will of your whole health. without your belief, you are a wilting born, a folding off into the corner of a sky hot with loss."

daughterofdiaspora:

to the daughters who bend and twist to make room for the emotions of family members stuck between longing and anguish. to the daughters creating bridges with their backs for parents who’ve lost more than mere limbs in the struggle to find home. to the daughters kneeling at the hands and feet of loved ones who’ve been crushed by a system that continues to deny them access. to the daughters who have been mothers to their mother, father, and brothers. to the daughters deferring dreams. to the daughters who hold back tears until the midnight hours. for so long you have shrunk to make room for a dream that you never asked for or cared for. loves, you are not alone and your love and effort does not go unnoticed. sending you all so much goodness in this life <3

"It is important for this country to make its people so obsessed with their own liberal individualism that they do not have time to think about a world larger than self."

A beautiful gesture from Lebanon - names of Palestinians killed by Israel in the last two weeks were hung on huge banners in Raouché, Beirut during a demonstration against the latest Zionist assault on Gaza, July 22, 2014. Protesters also threw flowers into the sea. Over 600 people have been killed (as of the morning of July 23, 2014), at least 25% of whom were children.
