A Palestinian teenager died today, nine days after being wounded by Israeli fire during a Gaza protest against US recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, the health ministry said.
Mohammad Sami al-Dahduh, 19, from Gaza City was shot on December 15 during a demonstration on the Israeli border, ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra said.
His death brings to 12 the number of Palestinians killed since US President Donald Trump announced on December 6 that he would recognise Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and move the US embassy there from Tel Aviv.
The Number Twelve (From Judism and Numbers)
There are also 12 days of Christmas, 12 disciples of Jesus, and 12 Palestinians killed for the sin of protesting against Trump's declaration.
Completion of God's purpose? If so, then God's no better than the worst of us.
It's amazing to me that Christians still believe Jesus made the final sacrifice for humankind by the shedding of his blood, when in fact people are being sacrificed everyday in the so-called Holy Land for what passes as a religious ideal -- paradoxically originated by atheist Zionists, and cheered on by End-of-Days fanatics.
And that's not even getting started on lives being sacrificed all around the world in the name of - what - "progress", "hegemony", "regime change" ... oil?
Would you like to know how effective the brainwashing of religion is? Most people are indoctrinated in early childhood, when they are most susceptible to brainwashing.
I was raised in Pentecostalism, and still, at the age of 77, when I hear a song like this, I get tears in my eyes. But I know now that the music, the rituals, the chants, the prayers, the scriptures of ALL religions are designed to keep the so-called "ordinary" people pliantly long-suffering in the hope of reward in the next life, while soulless, greedy megalomaniacs are free to plunder the earth.
If Jesus ever existed at all, he is still being slaughtered every day in the name of religion. Lurking behind the love-and-goodness images of God, of Jesus and, yes, of Santa Claus, is a subtle threat: all three of these all-seeing, all-knowing spectres have the power to punish even little children for the sin of simple, human doubt.
Mohammad Sami al-Dahduh was allowed by "God's Chosen People" to be wounded, reviled, and slaughtered for the sin of protesting against the heartless expropriation of the land on which his forebears have lived for at least a thousand years. He dared to doubt the righteousness of the Israeli lust for real estate.
As for Israel's Christian abettors, read this:
This is why evangelicals love Trump's Israel policy
Hint: It has to do with burning lakes of fire.
To all of you who try hard at Christmas time not to think about what's happening to certain other people's children in the name of God and Country: just go ahead and overshop, overeat, overdrink, and insult your relatives. At least most of you -- one hopes -- will not be directly killing anybody.
As for me, I will recall the hundreds of starlings who filled the tree outside my window, clambered onto the roof, and perched on my balcony railing, and thereafter, according to some mysterious signal, took off en masse into the blue. They represent FREEDOM to me; and lightheartedness, which -- if all of humankind could feel it for longer than a fleeting moment -- might at last create PEACE ON EARTH, GOOD WILL TO ALL.
