"Ariel Sharon, the conniving gangster and blood-stained political opportunist inspired every member of my generation to never rest until Zionism is ended. His legacy of massacring our people in Qibya, Sabra, Shatila, Jenin and Gaza, the colonization of Jerusalem, and the killing of Arafat with the help of PA operatives taught all of us that Israel is a manifestation of European exclusionary practice in the ugliest sense, and a reincarnation of Nazism. Let us mark today as a milestone at the beginning of Zionism’s end.
"Let us remind ourselves of what we hold dear, our sense of universal humanity, as to never revel in someone’s demise. As the Zionists have mastered and internalized all the evils of Nazism, we, in contrast, draw from our cultural depth of pluralism and the product of our civilization. It is therefore incumbent on us to rise above the degrading principles that characterized Sharon’s atrocious values for him and his fellow Zionists, and celebrate our martyrs, but never exalt his death. Sharon was just a thug.
"The count-down for the fall of Zionism has commenced."

Be an afterthought when you’re sitting alone, right after you hang up the phone. Or be a sound on the wind when you can’t see outside. The tick-tock of a clock. A reminder of something you’ve forgotten."
“A federal jury Friday found that a former San Jose police officer used “unreasonable” force by repeatedly jolting a naked, unarmed truck driver who was high on PCP with a Taser — and awarded $1 million to his family for his wrongful death.
Steve Salinas, 47, died six years ago during the confrontation with four police officers at the Vagabond Motel on North First Street. The jury exonerated three of those officers, who acknowledged urging former Officer Barry Chickayasu to zap Salinas but said they had no idea he had fired the device 10 times in 93 seconds…”
Saddam Saleh, a former prisoner at Abu Ghraib, shows a photograph at a 2004 press conference from the scandal that includes him in the middle of a group of naked prisoners being mocked by Lynndie England. Reuters.
England was released on parole on March 1, 2007 after serving 521 days of her three-year sentence.
She says she regrets that the photographs were taken because they spawned deadly retaliatory attacks against U.S. soldiers. But she remains unapologetic toward her victims in the photographs.
