"I've traveled across the length of
the breadth of Africa
and i've not seen one person who's a beggar
who's a thief
such wealth i have seen in this country
such high moral values
people of such caliber
that i do not think we would ever conquer this country
unless we break the very backbone
of this nation which is her spiritual
and cultural heritage"#quote
1835 letter to british parliment
"in 1898 a letter was written to herzl to appeal to him
to leave Palestine alone
herzl says we're going to do good for you
this zionist colonization will be for the benefit of the palestinians
and that was a constant drum
every colonizer says that
the french said that to the Algerians
even as they were taking their land
even as they were depriving them of rights
the boers said that to the Africans in
and so on and so forth"#quote
"there’s no end to the available horror.
whatever nightmare possibility we imagine.
we can always imagine something worse.
we can always add more horror.
the fear we feel contemplating those 'what ifs'
isn’t a response to any real danger.
It’s a response to our own imagination."#quote
