Defining decade: How did you stand for Palestine?

Defining decade: How did you stand for Palestine?

From a lecture given in April, 2014, in Portland, Oregon, the words of Miko Peled, an Israeli writer and activist (I recommend watching his inspiring and informative lectures on YouTube):
“Every generation is judged by a certain issue…. In the 60s there was the Vietnam War and the civil rights movement here in America, the 80s it was apartheid in South Africa…. we are all going to be judged, we all have to answer to this issue of Palestine, this is the defining issue of our time.. 
Lama H. Nassar shared this photo of Israeli prisoner soldier Shaul Aaron. The operation was carried out by Gaza fighters
Lama H. Nassar's photo.
And all of us here, and everyone who stood for Palestine and stood for justice, we’ll be able to tell our kids and grand kids exactly where we stood.
Because they will ask, and they should ask, and the people who stood on the other side and the people who waved the Israeli flag while bombs were falling on Gaza.
And the people who support and excuse the crimes of Israel will either hide in a corner somewhere or deny they ever supported Israel..
It’s like today you won’t find anyone who supported apartheid in South Africa.
Everyone loved Nelson Mandela, suddenly!
And this is exactly what we’re gonna see and I bet it’s gonna be much sooner than what people think.”

Note: And which living Palestinian leader everyone will love? Israel has been assassinating every “dangerous” Mandela-kind Palestinian leader since 1948. In Palestine and in the Arab World and even UN chiefs Hamarshold.
