Come you masters of war You that build all the guns You that build the death planes You that build all the bombs You that hide behind walls You that hide behind desks I just want you to know I can see through your masks. You that never done nothin' But build to destroy You play with my world Like it's your little toy You put a gun in my hand And you hide from my eyes And you turn and run farther When the fast bullets fly. Like Judas of old You lie and deceive A world war can be won You want me to believe But I see through your eyes And I see through your brain Like I see through the water That runs down my drain. You fasten all the triggers For the others to fire Then you set back and watch When the death count gets higher You hide in your mansion' As young people's blood Flows out of their bodies And is buried in the mud. You've thrown the worst fear That can ever be hurled Fear to bring children Into the world For threatening my baby Unborn and unnamed You ain't worth the blood That runs in your veins. How much do I know To talk out of turn You might say that I'm young You might say I'm unlearned But there's one thing I know Though I'm younger than you That even Jesus would never Forgive what you do. Let me ask you one question Is your money that good Will it buy you forgiveness Do you think that it could I think you will find When your death takes its toll All the money you made Will never buy back your soul. And I hope that you die And your death'll come soon I will follow your casket In the pale afternoon And I'll watch while you're lowered Down to your deathbed And I'll stand over your grave 'Til I'm sure that you're dead.------- Bob Dylan 1963

‘You’re Not Allowed to Use Public Transportation At All’: A Report from Israel’s Segregated Buses
When will the international community recognize and hold ISrael responsible for what they truly are?
They are the persecuted that have become the persecutors.
There can no longer be any question that Israel is an apartheid state.
The Zionists do not want peace. They want land, all that they can get for a "jewish state".
Israel has been the albatross tail that has wagged the American dog for decades.
THis must come to a stop.
We can no longer afford Israel to dictate our foreign policy in the region.
America must acknowledge that Israel is the clear and present danger in the region.
They are the ones that have nukes, and lots of them.
They are the ones that treat millions of Palestinians like animals.
Israel should be shunned and from the world community.
Instead the U.S.A. will give a veto vote when Israel is exposed at the U.N.
We help finance, green light, and condone the illegal and immoral actions of Israel.
Where is the outrage? Where is the shame????????????
Editor's Note: The following report is from February 28, 2013. Although it was reported that Israel would begin segregating bus service in the West Bank starting March 4, the practice has been in effect for much longer. Yeshua-Lyth explained in an email: "The practice of banning Palestinians from public buses has been in evidence for months. News of plans for 'Palestinian only' buses were in the Israeli press already in November. It seems that the coercing and harassment have the purpose of 'educating' Palestinians about the way to choose public transport. The announcement yesterday coincided with my Thursday report by coincidence, or perhaps it was rushed following the considerable uproar this report has managed to create. I have been listening to blatant lies on Israeli radio about the new buses being a 'helpful measure' for the workers all day yesterday. The fact remains that public transport is a system based on a grid serving people who should be able to choose their own routes. If you live in London you do not wish to be allowed on buses from Paddington to Oxford only.."
