I don’t know that we are actually human at this point, those of us who are like most of us, who grew up with TV and movies and now the Internet. If we are betrayed, we know the words to say; when a loved one dies, we know the words to say. If we want to play the stud or the smart-ass or the fool, we know the words to say. We are all working from the same dog-eared script.

It’s a very difficult era in which to be a person, just a real, actual person, instead of a collection of personality traits selected from an endless Automat of characters.

And if all of us are play-acting, there can be no such thing as a soul mate, because we don’t have genuine souls.

It had gotten to the point where it seemed like nothing matters, because I’m not a real person and neither is anyone else.

Don’t really know much, if anything about WWI but still, interesting.

Jon Snow of Channel 4 News, who recently visited and reported from the war zone in Israel and Gaza, says what many in positions of power fear to say publicly: that, because we often turn a blind eye to the actions of the Israeli government, a share of the blame sits at our feet.

Sadly, despite the lengths that Israel will go to continue its annexation of the Palestinian Territories - whether that be through corrupting Westminster with political donations, knocking down Palestinian homes, or firing rockets into defenceless neighbourhoods - our government silently supports Netanyahu and the brutal IDF.

We like to think of Israel as the bastion of Western democracy and freedom in the Middle East. However if recent events tell us anything, it is that Israel is just as concerned about preserving human life than those who have been responsible for the acts of terrorism against innocent civilians in our own nation.

I’ve really tried to understand the Israelis. I used to work on a farm in Israel. I speak Hebrew. I watch their news. All the time they talk about fear. How they have to run to their bunkers to hide from the rockets. How their children can’t sleep because of the sirens. This is not a good way for them to live. We Palestinians don’t talk about fear, we talk about death. Our rockets scare them; their rockets kill us. We have no bomb shelters, we have no sirens, we have nowhere we can take our children and keep them safe. They are scared. We are dying.
