When the United States of America–my country–is destroying itself, while simultaneously attempting to erase the memory of another country it destroyed in war–the Confederate States of America–as if to divert attention from its own self-destruction–what can I do but call for the acknowledgement of a country that has never been, but has every right to be–Palestine? Especially since my country–the United States of America–is the primary financial, political, and military supporter of an illegally and inhumanely contrived country–the Zionist State (Israel)–whose very establishment was a major atrocity, in that it displaced the population of Muslims and Christians who had lived and died in that region known as Palestine for over 1300 years? This same Zionist State continuing to practice a sort of genocide against these Arabs, both Muslim and Christian, to this day, with increasing brutality?
As an American who truly loves his country, it is my responsibility to hold my country accountable for the atrocities it commits against itself at home–as well as the atrocities it supports abroad.
And if you truly love the United States of America, you will hold it accountable for what it does at home and abroad. You cannot leave the fate of your country in the hands of leaders whose only allegiance is to themselves or to their respective political parties. If you are a citizen of the United States of America, you have a privilege that those in most other countries in the world do not have–the right to direct your country’s government. But if you do not exercise this privilege, you will soon be without it. The government of the United States of America was established as one of the people, by the people, and for the people–and it is the responsibility of the people themselves to keep it that way.
