“This blind defense of Israeli brutality towards the Palestinians is betrayal of the memory of all those killed in other genocides in other times.

''In our own day they are not fighting against one another at all. The war is waged by each ruling group against its own subjects, and the object of the war is not to make or prevent conquests of territory, but to keep the structure of society intact.''
