Abu Ghraib and the image


Those images are only a part of a painful and sorry sight played by a
despotic power! The Abu Ghraib pictures are not art works, even someone may
understand photography as pure and simple imitation of actual things or
photography as a simply reproductive tool. Because those are images of
phantoms in a cave, in platonic sense. The victims of abuses are others,
they are nobodies, completing forgotten on your own pain. From this
pictures, we know nothing about their lives or their feelings and the
dominant impression when contemplating them is the gratuite exposure of
shadows in a wall. The bric-a-brac of the bodies reminds red meat in a
slaughterhouse, carcass plunder as the work of a butcher.

I think we are living a time where cruelty took the place of capitalism
cynicism, what was unthinkable years ago: punishement made the rules,
scourge is before law, as "In the Penal Colony" of Kafka. The passivity and
the silence of international law behind terror regime of Israel, doing the
law means nothing! The only law is the barbarie and savagery of Isreal state
that have been killed dozen and dozen of lebanese and palestine children,
beyond the eyes of the world! And this strange passivity and silence may be
a sign, a sympton of excess of sorrow, a overplus uneasiness for such orgy
of blood. The war machiney of Israel have been unmasked as a paranoic and
perverse machine. In a delerium of destruction, soldiers, rabbin and jews
psychologists going to the desert to do a new holocauste, the ultimate
sacrifice in the name of Jehova. A new alliance between USA and Isreal
consolidate the revenge of the Israel sons against the descendents of the
cananeus and filisteus, the original people of the hebraist promised land.
The Isreal policy to palestine land is a irrational one, haven't no concerne
about rights or justice, but is determined by the desire of revenge.
In fact, this is the only motive for the terribles crimes accomplished by
the
Army of Isreal, to give cruelity a new horrible meaning.

Sign and Forward "Save the Lebanese Civilians Petition"


Please go to http://julywar.epetition.net and sign the Save the Lebanese Ci=
viliatians Petition and forward this invitation to all the people you may.

Lebanese civiliatians have been under the constant attack of the state of I=
srael for several days. The state of Israel, in disregard to international =
law and the Geneva Convention, is lauching a maritime and air siege targeti=
ng the entire population of the country. Innocent civilians are being colle=
ctively punished in Lebanon by the state of Israel in deliberate acts of te=
rrorism as described in Article 33 of the Geneva Convention.

Please, do not forsake the innocent civilians in Lebanon under a criminal b=
ombing that already killed dozens of children!

Enough is enough! It's urgent to stop this atrocity!

Go to http://julywar.epetition.net, sign the petition and forward this link=
