Thoughts on Gaza - Qantara.de - "We Want Peace!"

The GYBO, which stands for "Gaza Youth Breaks Out". Parts of GYBO "Youth Manifesto" reminds me of stuff done by Pennywise
Especially when GYBO say:
"Fuck Hamas. Fuck Israel. Fuck Fatah. We, the youth in Gaza, are so fed up with Israel, Hamas, the occupation, the violations of human rights and the indifference of the international community!" "We want to be free, we want to live, we want peace." Is that really too much to ask? via
The in the Qantara.de - "We Want Peace!" article the author talks about a sense of hopelessness. To me it sounds like a resoluteness. Remember the issue is not ultimately religion, nor land. It's Life. When we are silent in the face of that which squelches life; oppression, hate, war, we are culpable. To misquote Edmund Burke - "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." Sometimes we just have to say "Fuck Authority"
