    There is nothing new about non violent resistance in Palestine. It has been going on for years.

    Non violent protesters are beaten, gassed, arrested, shot at, and sometimes killed by Israeli goons.

    So were Civil rights activists right here in the US back in the 60s and 70s, I still respect these non violent Palestinians more than the Hamas guys who practice terror and kill innocents.

    Palestine actually has a peace party. The leader ran for president against puppet Abbas in 2005. Where Abbas was free to travel Palestine to campaign, the peace candidate was beaten and arrested. He suffered a broken leg in the process.

    Then there is one of my personal heroes.

    You probably do not even know who she is.

    The young ones are going to have to fight the P F Variety. Let's see what they can do.

    And they are the future. P F demanding the end of Israel is the past. I am the past. The young on both sides are the future.

    Its just refreshing to see something different than the usual store brand "DEATH TO ISRAEL/DEATH TO USA" dirka dirka jihab stuff, that type of attitude has hurt the Palestinians more than anything in my opinion.
