Words have power and they help to determine how we look at things.


Jerusalem 1948. In a Western country which was invaded by foreigners we would call these men resistance fighters. Like the French or Dutch Resistance during the German occupation of WWII. The Western colonial powers have always called those who resisted their occupation outside Europe, ‘terrorists’. So we have Algerian, Libyan, Palestinian, etc, ‘terrorists’. Words have power and they help to determine how we look at things.
