Whoever pulled off the bombing of the Brussels airport committed a monstrous crime against unarmed civilians. I hope they are hunted down & prosecuted. No one who values justice has any soft spot for such barbarous & bankrupt political methods. But I’ll be damned if I’ll join those wrapping themselves in the Belgian flag & chanting “Je suis Bruxelles” or “Ik ben Brussel.”
What happened in that airport is a microcosm of what is happening in the killing fields of Yemen, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, Gaza. When people start organizing against those wars, then the crocodile tears will prove more than just another manifestation of white supremacy.
My deepest sympathies to the families & friends of those killed & for those injured. But enough with the “Je suis” crap unless it includes all who are victims of US, European, Israeli, & Saudi coalition bombers.
