I’m English and also am beginning to feel afraid for my countries political future. My mom always told me you can’t change the past shirt I am fearful we are following in Americas footsteps. It does make me feel better reading comments on here, so full of empathy and love.
My mom always told me you can’t change the past shirt
I’m scared of Italy repeating its history. I’d be killed immediately as part of the resistance. Until then, I drink wine and feed cats, trying not to think about that which I cannot change, while supporting that which I can surprisingly, I find that here too in the States. My father’s grandparents (both sets) My mom always told me you can’t change the past shirt emigrated from Italy in the late 1800’s. I don’t get that so many of those with Italian heritage here don’t know or care that our people were treated like dirt at one time. You’d think we’d have learned some empathy. Maybe it’s just Italians here in Maine that are xenophobic, I don’t know.
Welcome to these awesome designs
the same applies to the Irish, particularly in Massachusetts and Illinois. They were persecuted, stereotyped and prohibited from participating in the community. Yet today, those people, my people, are vile racists who have forgotten the experience of their ancestors who came through Ellis Island with nothing but a suitcase. Where do you think Syrian rebels (who are allied with Al-Qaeda, mind you) get their weapons and training from?
The US and other western nations that want Assad out at any cost. Displacing millions of people is part of that cost. There are millions of Syrian refugees in Egypt too, you don’t think that has contributed to destabilization there? In addition the US helped along the so called “arab spring” in Egypt, with no real workable plan to replace it with anything, which further destabilized that country. It would be foolish to say regime change interventions by the west haven’t directly caused the refugee crisis.
