No Palestinian Is An Island

As we close a year in which our country, our country, has aided in the slaughter of innocents; we ask: What were the Israeli commandos thinking when they boarded the Gaza-bound freedom flotilla and killed ten people?

When Israel illegally held Nobel Peace Prize winner, Mairead Corrigan?

When Israel killed a young American peace activist, Farrakhan Dogan? Knowing well this killing would have the almost unanimous support of the U.S. Congress and President Obama.

More importantly we say: Not in our name, Mr. President.

Israel is no friend of ours.

When a Palestinian loses his home to bulldozers; when Israel imprisons and slaughters Gazans, we say: No more, because:

No man is an island entire of itself; every man
is a piece of the continent, a part of the main;
if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe
is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as
well as any manner of thy friends or of thine
own were; any man’s death diminishes me,
because I am involved in mankind.
And therefore never send to know for whom
the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.

– John Donne
Meditation XVII
