Book: If this is a man

watching this video of a Palestinian ambulance shot by IDF, and of a Palestinian journalist, Rami Rean, killed by the same, I can only think of the BEAUTIFUL book of an Italian Jew, miraculously escaped from Auschwitz, Primo Levi

I have read this book 25 times and never get tired. And the more I see what IDF is doing to people in Gaza, the more it reminds me of what the Nazi have done to the Jews.

You who live safe
In your warm houses,
You who find, returning in the evening,
Hot food and friendly faces:

Consider if this is a man
Who works in the mud,
Who does not know peace,
Who fights for a scrap of bread,
Who dies because of a yes or a no.
Consider if this is a woman
Without hair and without name,
With no more strength to remember,
Her eyes empty and her womb cold
Like a frog in winter.

Because such is the life in Gaza, such is the life under any "ism" - Nazism, Fascism, Zionism, Communism. and why not some sort of Capitalism.

I am not defending Hamas, Hamas is a Creation of Mossad and they deserve all desecration just like the semi-fascist government of Netanyahu.

I am sure these images will never appear on the mainstream TV.

Even now my voice is reaching millions throughout the world, millions of despairing men, women, and little children, victims of a system that makes men torture and imprison innocent people.
