"The fact is, it's hard to be a non-violent peace activist in the world people like Netanyahu and Lieberman have created for Palestinians and those able to empathize with them. As their modern military forces armed to the gills with the latest restraint technology, lethal weaponry and surveillance tactics more and more turn into 'Zionist storm troopers,' it becomes that much harder to be non-violent and retain any kind of dignity. Because, as everyone in the peace movement knows, the message you get from these hyper-armed forces reduces to: Stand only where we tell you to stand or we'll haul you away." (07/14/11)
