I’m here first because there’s a massacre y’know. There’s a complete injustice and the way the media reportin’ ’bout it lose the fact that Palestinian life is precious and valuable and it makes it into this thing that it’s a conflict. It’s not a conflict, it’s an oppressor and the oppressed.

………..

We are here because enough is enough. As a human being we can no longer can tolerate this sort of abuse of innocent people children men women we cannot really accept that every time Israli government goes thru election what they have to do what they have to show, they have to show which one has more blood on their hand the one that has more blood on their hand the one more willing to killing more people innocent people then it becomes more eligible, more eligible to become elected. This actually say a really horrible message of not just about the politicians in occupied Palestine but it actually says a really horrible message of what the population of Israelis actually are motivated, they’re motivated by seeing who kills more …..
