  • The most inhumane, the most intolerable events we see in the world with Israel and its big brother. People cannot share the land, cannot share living, what should be done? Well, there is UN, and the World Peace, so sovereignty should be taken from both: Israel and Gaza and given to the hands of international community, UN leadership around the table. Zero tolerance to violence. We should all protest again crimes! Israel did not prove itself as the state. The existence of the state just deepened its hatred and violence and got itself stuck on traumatic history that has nothing to do with the present. Gaza is not justified even to come closer to weapons and know even the word, military. I think peace should begin by taking away their toys of weapons, and protection they shall find in their hearts. Who needs the state guarded by the wall? The wall at the Temple? The wall separating the other people? I don’t understand why they so much concerned for their identity if it is illusion as always. Now, people of the world should all unite to stop militarism as such. Multitude is much higher than a bunch of “guys” with weapons who think they know what to do. In fact, they don’t as we see it right there on the picture. Why do all need states, in the first place if they do not even know what peace means as definition? Let me remind you, folks, the state came into place as a notion in human history at a certain time to serve certain means of politic and “to protect citizens” from lie. But here, is a crime done by the states and who will put them in to truth? We as a whole. We need to stop militarism and go back to the land, to that prehistoric time when community was not an image, nor a social media brand, but a place of mutual existence, LIFE. I demand and do not even know where to start…to stop militarism, -ism, states and all this violence for the sake of this Earth, now and ever.
