h/t to amomenttothink for retweeting this.

This can’t take the place of activism to address the human rights issues, but it certainly seems like the most direct way to actually help the real human beings who are suffering here.

ISIS marks letter “N” (ن) for “Nasrani” (term for Christian) on Assyrian Christian homes in Mosul [x]

This is beyond terrifying.

 حسبي الله ونعم والوكيل. 

Please as much awareness you have about Gaza, let us not forget Iraq where there is an insurgent group that is wrecking havoc and spreading horror in areas like Mosul.

The Christian, Shiaa, and Assyrian population of Iraq predates any of these lunatics and it’s an outrage they are being targeted.

Always remember, Imperialism not only funnels Dictators, but once they remove them, they replace them by funneling and emboldening Extremists and fundamentalists while “opposing them” on the surface.

No one benefits from this except the very powers that came to divide us. 

May God protect them.

Mother, 2 children survive ‘stabbing attempt’ in Jerusalem
July 13 2014
JERUSALEM (Ma’an) — Two Israeli extremists attempted to stab a Palestinian woman and her two children as they passed through a Jewish neighborhood in the Old City of Jerusalem late Saturday. A Ma’an reporter said that the two Israelis attempted to stab Umm Ziyad Abu Hadwan, her daughter Fidaa, 10, and her son Ahmad, 8. Her husband said that the Israelis verbally abused her before one of them took out a knife. They started screaming and managed to flee to a shop in the chain gate area. The Israelis attempted to follow them but were stopped by people at the gate.

BREAKING NEWS

Israel has begun it’s campaign in launching the biggest ground assault on Gaza in more than 5 years.

The people of Gaza have absolutely no chance at this point. Israel will do anything to wipe Gaza off the planet. WE MUST TAKE ACTION. BOOST

NOT EVEN SATAN could have thought this up. Israelis cheering on massacres likes its a sport.

Contrary to what the media tell you this is how safe they are from ‘khamas rockets’ and this is how little regard they have for human life.

They wll not stop until they wipe Palestine off the map. The ethic cleansing of Palestine continues. Israel is targeting babies, children, women and men - no one is excluded - while the world sits by and watches.

Not so much as a squeak from Obama. Or anyone. They only care about Israeli lives.

There is no lower than this.

Happy Black History YEAR!

Greatness.

loving how my old history teacher talked about them like a terrorist group

boost me up

Wow okay so for those skimming, there’s a memo up there from THE DIRECTOR OF THE FBI that sets a mission to LIE about the good things the Black Panthers were doing, spread rumors of them being terrorists, and terrorize the communities supporting them.

If you think the Black Panthers were terrorists and you’ve never heard of the community-building, it’s because there was a literal government conspiracy to make you and people 45 years ago think that way.

i’m reblogging again (bolding mine), because people need to fucking know this. especially white americans.
