I have no wisdom to offer on this topic. But the link between these Israeli Zionists and 9/11 strikes me as very thoughtful on a most subtle level. It's not the same people (in my opinion)...but it's the same mentality. One singular "chosen" people of God (what bullshit) that are trying to create a world to agree/support with that ideology/mentality/group. And what does this mean? Obliterating the Other.

The Other.

Again, I have no comment on this. Just sadness. And a feeling of anxiety at it's potential complexity. And I'll leave it at that.
