What am I doing here?

This tape was aired two years ago on Israeli TV; the location: Bethlehem, Palestine an occupied land ... but nothing changed. In fact nothing has changed for the last sixty years ... geopolitical lies mount upon more lies and mount again on the plains of Palestine in Gaza, so exactly when is enough, enough? Wasn't it Joseph Goebbels (Nazi WW2) who said:

"If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

And then there is George Orwell (English Novelist and Essayist,1903-1950) who said: β€œIn our age there is no such thing as 'keeping out of politics.' All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia.”

So where do we go from here ...?
