Day 13 in a blind world.

Note from andy To: The 5 ppl that read this blog on a daily basis: I understand this may not be the most popular topic/post – but I believe awareness is the key; it leads to decision making... let me explain (you have to know about it to have an opinion about it..ri? once that opinion is formed it's your choice what your going to do.. if any thing at all) If you had no clue that this was going on before... you are now aware. --------- In North America it’s quite easy to tune out the rest of the world... and be blind to the fact that others face more challenges on a day to day basis then what kind of coffee to order @ Starbucks. Today marks the 13th day since Israel invaded the Gaza Strip. May the lives of the people be spared while the Leaders construct a new cease fire plan.. (reported death toll 700+).learn more here - in Q&A format. while writing this post I was reminded this quote: An eye for an eye will make the whole world blind - Gandhi photo credits: boston.com view more photos here Andy

BIG UP THE POST.......

AWARENESS IS KEY!

BUN THE AMERICAN GOVERNMENT ONCE AGAIN.....

Because when your trace the source it leads to them...and not only has the BUSH administration been supporting Isarel...

But so is everybodies so called saviour OBAMA......

If you don't wanna look outside your own back yard...then do your research on OBAMA.....

This is why when they say most of the world hates the U.S., I completely understand why.

The U.S. may not be the direct cause of what's going on over there right now but most of the technology Israel is using against those people are from the U.S.

The least frivolous post i've seen on here thus far..check out the documentary "Occupation 101"..It gives a comprehensive look at the conflict, provides a historic context, and provides an alternative, seldom heard, account of what the Palestinian people have withstood...Contrary to what mainstream media outlets, Zionists, and the American gov. would have u believe, Muslim people aren't terrorists..I too am guilty of being a capitalist whore at times but if we should try to be more critical of the shit thats going around us..it would be nice to see more thought provoking pieces of writing on here, ppl obliviously care what you have to say.

Thanks to everyone who took the time to comment - I was hesitant to post this at first..

Anitah Sparkz- I haven't done all my research but i'm not ready to put 100% of the blame on the American guv...

Yves - I wans't aware "most of the technology Israel is using against those people are from the U.S." seems to be more and more technology is playing a major role in war/terrorism

Anonymous - I'll def look into getting my hands on a copy of "Occupation 101"
