Anonymous said: six million died in the holocaust... palestine has no right to complain!


that makes no sense. that would be like if i were to point out that approximately 10 million Africans died as a result of the trans-Atlantic slave trade — or that tens of millions of Native Americans were killed by European colonialism — so therefore Jews have no right to complain …

this isn’t a contest, it’s a protest against the mass slaughter of human beings!

also, palestine had nothing to do with the holocaust. that was the product of European fascism. trying to connect the two issues only serves as an empty justification for Israel’s CURRENT genocide against the palestinians.

and most jewish ancestors of holocaust victims today actually don’t live in israel, but are rather quite assimilated into europe, the united states, and elsewhere around the globe. but you don’t see those jews using the holocaust as justification to carry out mass genocide within their new homelands.

in actual fact, israel’s genocide against the palestinians has absolutely nothing to do with the holocaust, but rather everything to do with Western colonialism and imperialism.

in any event, people have a “right” to “complain” about any and all genocides that take place, regardless of who is the perpetrator and who the victim.

the real question is — what kind of sick barbaric fuck are you that only cares about the genocide carried out against some people, but not others?

1. Do not date a boy who does not care what your favourite song is. The boy who does not care what melodies ignite your heart strings with love and wonder while staring at passing street lights on the last train home, will not care if it’s 2 a.m. and your heart is breaking.

2. Do not let anyone fold you up like last winters tattered scarf and put you away with the others in a neatly labeled box. Even when there’s thunder and the sky is crying, you are your mum’s favourite summer dress. You are to wear yourself like you believe it.

3. We are all stories. Write yours how you want. Make today’s chapter about purposely taking the wrong bus and discovering a tiny blue tea shop, or folding origami paper hearts over and over on your window sill. Just make sure it’s something you’d enjoy reading.

4. I will always try to save you.

5. Someday you will be 19 and lost and heartbroken and you will think about a place you’ve seen on TV or heard or read about in a book or seen a picture of. You will feel your heart drop into your stomach. Go there. For a day, a month, forever, but it’s important that you go.

6. The world is so beautiful. Do not let the slumped over homeless man outside the convenience store or the stories of guns and bombs on the television let you believe otherwise. We are all so lost. All of us. We all show it in different ways. I write bad poems. Others start wars. There is no inherent evil, only good people searching too hard.

7. I love everything about you.

8. Money turns people into liars and emotional ghosts. School grades are an inaccurate representation of you. Measure your life’s worth in how many times you’ve nearly lost your life to laughter, how many books you’ve closed with happy tears in your eyes, people whose lives you’ve brought joy to, marshmallows eaten, or countries visited.

9. Don’t ever let anyone tell you to stop crying. Cry if you want to. It’s okay. You’re allowed.

10. My best friend once told me that the most important decision he had ever made was to love everyone and everything. He’s the only person I’ve ever known to have a viewable aura of light around him. Don’t forget to love this world, to love people. Be light. You are already mine.
