Israeli insanity - it's genocide

Israeli forces physically tried to prevent medics from treating injured Palestinian demonstrators near the illegal settlement of Beit El in the occupied West Bank yesterday.

It is outrageous that US citizens are providing Israel billions of dollars to carry out these illegal and immoral attacks against the Palestinian people.

It's also outrageous to know that many US police departments are being trained by Israel's fascist military forces.  I am certain this is happening because Washington intends to treat black, Hispanic and poor people in general this same way as our economy heads for collapse.

There are millions of superfluous populations in this country - no longer needed, no longer wanted - and they will be continually harassed, marginalized, beaten and jailed.

Those who think the next election might be able to change this are living an illusion - the US is now a full-blown fascist state and we are moving toward even harsher days ahead.  (Mussolini defined fascism as the wedding of government and corporations.)

The US role in the world is 'security export' - that means making and selling weapons and sending our poor and unemployed youth around the world to kill and die for resource extraction corporation interests.

Fight back and survive.....
