#No2IranWar 13.08.2012

Back at home I try to put my thoughts into coherency & write a few coherent words about today's protest vigil.

What I'm feeling right now is love for my people. I love you, Sara, Micheal, Amiel, Eyal, Amitay, Dolev, Hila, Nissim, Uri, Ovadia.

I  am calling you my people because today you joined me in calling for no war.

I am trying to think how this love is related to anything.

Why I suddenly feel a strong sense of belonging, despite me being a radical individualist & socially awkward penguin.

I can answer this by saying that a fear of war and destruction brings us closer to each other, and that facing fear,

we align ourselves and join hands for a common base cause: that is life.

I detected 2-3 groups of activists within the small crowd: Ta'ayush activists, a  rather "left" " group  that

focuses on human rights within the occupied territories of the west bank and Hama'abara, social activists,

 

that used their presence to highlight the injustice of going to war while people have no money for food and medicine and that the money that is spent on war is on expense of welfare, education, public health, that this prompted war is a highly dubious adventure with unknown outcome (the only thing we do know is that 300 people at least are likely to die by 1000 missiles pointed at us), & that those in power are trying to make political & economic profit out of this war.We were knocking on the gates of Prime minister mansion, demanding that our voices will be heard.

I believe that both governments of Iran & Israel stay in power by uniting the people against an outside threat,

while poverty, ignorance, inequality exist within us.

I believe the Iranian government has other motives in achieving nuclear power other than striking Israel.

I have faith in Iran's freedom loving youth that want to bring change from within the society, as I do.

Allowing a military assault on Iran to happen without resistance on our part feels like betrayal on our part.
