The Thirst for Freedom Cannot Be Quenched

Earlier today Israeli forces shot this man dead. Fadi Abu Saleh was one just one of 55 Palestinian protesters killed yesterday by Israeli forces.

When a legless man without a weapon will fight with only stones and a sling, you cannot defeat him, for 100 will rise to take his place.

As Patrick Henry put it when speaking at the second Virginia convention at St. John's Church in Richmond, Virginia in 1775:

“What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God!

I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”

Those who will fight will, in the end, always win.

What a price is being paid after Trump fulfilled a campaign promise to the evangelical voters to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The evangelicals wanted this in order to put in place a situation described in revelations thinking mankind could force God to start His plan on mankind’s timetable.

Whatever your religious beliefs might be, once you've shot and killed a legless man in a wheelchair armed only with a slingshot, your cause has lost any claim to the moral high ground, forever and always, amen.
