"I’ve told the kids in the ghettos that violence won’t solve their problems, but then they ask me, and rightly so; “Why does the government use massive doses of violence to bring about the change it wants in the world?” After this I knew that I could no longer speak against the violence in the ghettos without also speaking against the violence of my government"

do you ever think about the judges for the triwizard tournament trying to figure out who to kidnap for the second task

like they’re all just sitting in dumbledore’s office and karkaroff goes “well word on the street says that krum has a crush on that granger girl”

"damn," says dumbledore, "I wanted harry to rescue her. well, what about the delightful miss chang?"

"no," says bagman, "we’ve got her down for diggory"

"stop sinking my ships," says dumbledore

9 questions about Israel you were too embarrassed to ask →


So I spent about six hours yesterday brushing up on my Israel-Palestine relations wondering if I could possibly make a video about it. The answer is…I cannot. Just taking a look at my Tumblr ask box has convinced me of that. If I did make that video, I would not condemn Hamas or Israel purely because I am incapable of making that kind of judgement.

This is not me not being true to myself. It’s not me fearing retribution from one side or the other. It’s that the more I learn about it, the more I do not know. This is a pattern…when someone that isn’t involved in an issue has an opinion on it, it tends to be completely useless. Once they learn about the topic, they understand their uselessness. I have come to understand mine. In the script I abandoned, I wrote:

I don’t know what should be done and neither do any of the smartest, most informed people in the world. Having an opinion on how to fix this would be like me having an opinion on how to perform a brain transplant. No one can do it…least of all me.

In my video, my main concern would not be figuring that out, but simply increasing the number of people in the world who understand the conflict on even the most basic level.

In my searchings and readings, the attached link was what felt to me like the most unbiased, fullest picture of the conflict in the fewest words. There are, to be sure, many things that this leaves out. But I felt like it was delivering the kind of depth that, ideally, a video I would make would provide. 

Unfortunately, that’s not the video I’m making for tomorrow. Every time I wrote it (four times) it ended with a me feeling like it was completely inadequate to the task of explaining how complicated the conflict in Israel is.

I’m not saying I’ll never make that video…I’ll keep working on it, but it’s not a two-day task. 

But if you want to know what’s up with the Irsrael-Palestine conflict, this link is the one I would suggest you start with. It’s pretty impressive work.

Yes, the Vox have had some good articles recently and this is one.
