Some don’t get the stone-pelting thing in Palestinian & Kashmiri Intifada. They see it as provocation. Maybe they never heard the David & Goliath story.
What would they have unarmed protesters do against truncheons, tear gas canisters, pellet munitions, live ammunition? Stand there like dumb oxen? Stop actively opposing occupation & fighting for self-determination? Submit to colonialism?
“Silence that comes through guns is peace for occupier
World a mute spectator
To all the cries & tears
Brokenhearted #Kashmir still stands.”
