Originally posted on Palestine Solidarity Committee in India:


Narendra Modi is all set to be the first Indian Prime Minister to visit Israel.



This is what this “first” really means: closer military and trade ties with Israel.



Closer military ties with Israel make India complicit in Israel’s war crimes in the occupied Palestinian territories. The Israeli military industry, the largest industry in t...

“Hungry man, reach for the book: it is a weapon.”

Martin Luther King Jr.
“A riot is the language of the unheard”
Martin Luther King Jr.

Doris Lessing
“Ideally, what should be said to every child, repeatedly, throughout his or her school life is something like this: 'You are in the process of being indoctrinated. We have not yet evolved a system of education that is not a system of indoctrination. We are sorry, but it is the best we can do. What you are being taught here is an amalgam of current prejudice and the choices of this particular culture. The slightest look at history will show how impermanent these must be. You are being taught by people who have been able to accommodate themselves to a regime of thought laid down by their predecessors. It is a self-perpetuating system. Those of you who are more robust and individual than others will be encouraged to leave and find ways of educating yourself — educating your own judgements. Those that stay must remember, always, and all the time, that they are being moulded and patterned to fit into the narrow and particular needs of this particular society.”
Doris Lessing, The Golden Notebook

Howard Zinn
“There is no flag large enough to cover the shame of killing innocent people.”
Howard Zinn

Howard Zinn
“Civil disobedience is not our problem. Our problem is civil obedience. Our problem is that people all over the world have obeyed the dictates of leaders…and millions have been killed because of this obedience…Our problem is that people are obedient allover the world in the face of poverty and starvation and stupidity, and war, and cruelty. Our problem is that people are obedient while the jails are full of petty thieves… (and) the grand thieves are running the country. That’s our problem.”
Howard Zinn

Marcy Hi Zalfa,

Here is the link to the book:

http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/14...

I bought it a few years ago at Libririe Antoine. I don't know if they still carry it, but you could ask them to order it if you cannot find it in a library. And here is one of my very favorites:
