What do human rights mean when a nation of human beings are officially ‘less-than’? What political influence does this anti-human movement hold in the United States, the beacon of freedom and the shining light on the hill?
Are Palestinians human, and if so what rights accrue? A good man once wrote, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness.”
Gilad Atzmon is an inhertor of this tradition.
