Every advance in human life, every scrap of knowledge and wisdom and decency we have has been torn by one side from the teeth of the other. Every little increase in human freedom has been fought over ferociously between those who want us to know more and be wiser and stronger, and those who want us to obey and be humble and submit.

A woman reaches under a block from the apartheid wall trying to hold the hand of her mother on the other side. Many families have become segregated after the Israeli occupation regime completed the construction of the wall which runs through Palestinian lands. This is just one of thousands of cases. 

Don’t the Zionists have any humanity?

when will saudi arabia ever stop compensating for their fragile masculinity 

was the clock tower of sauron not obnoxious enough for them or

that’s actually pretty cool but how about they spend some of their fucking money on, i don’t know, curbing the economic and other injustices in their country and, I DON’T KNOW, supporting muslims around the world like they’re supposed to instead of actively screwing the ummah over

i am not here for your shit, ksa.
