What Will We Say When They Ask Us What We Did?
Very late Wednesday night I watched the video Burning Questions.. The video included footage of the Bergen-Belsen and Auschwitz concentration camps.
Looking at these horrific images one cannot help but ask: How could this happen? Why didn't people stop this evil?
Today, the United States Government is rounding up Muslims and detaining or deporting them. Meanwhile, there continues to be movement in Israel for "population transfer", --possibly to coincide with the U.S. renewal of massacres on Iraq. 'Population transfer' is NewSpeak for the mass displacement of the indigenous Palestinian peoples.
Looking at these pictures and articles I cannot help but ask:
Will the people stop this evil?
What will we tell the next generations when they see the photos of the people rounded up and the carnage we have wreaked in Iraq and in Palestine and they ask us "What did you to stop this evil?"
