    I think it has something to do with being a Humanitarian.

    Struggle with dignity against injustice. IS there anything more honorable that a person can do?

      If vegetarians eat vegetables
      what do humanitarians eat?

      OK this is not a humor thread

      I do not want to read the toe curling part but not because I do not care
      and I would still like to do something
      will still contact congress about the report

      I still make contacts
      never do feel heard
      It feels like doing something but I don't know if it really is

      •  If "con" is the opposite of "pro" . . . (1+ / 0-)

        . . . then CONgress must be the opposite of PROgress.

        No, it's not a humor thread but sometimes a little laugh is good for the soul - especially when the topic is abused children, which can really get to you.

        The toe-curling part includes arrest after the home is raided by the military between midnight and 5 AM, physical and mental abuse during questioning, denial of access to legal council and the child's parents, solitary confinement for up to 90 days, prison garb and shackles during the "trial", and a prison sentence of as long as 10 years . . . for throwing a rock.  This is done to children as young as 12.  There is more than I've detailed here.  It gets sickening if you read it all.

        None of us ever feel heard.  That shouldn't stop anybody from making noise about an injustice this repulsive.  The USA can not be allowed to give Israel cover in the UN for this.  These aren't terrorists, they're CHILDREN.

        Thanks for making the effort if you can.  We need every voice we can get on this issue.
