"In the schools, they kindle patriotism in the children by means of histories describing their own people as the best of all peoples and always in the right. Among adults they kindle it by spectacles, jubilees, monuments, and by a lying patriotic press. Above all, they inflame patriotism in this way: perpetrating every kind of harshness and injustice against other nations, they provoke in them enmity towards their own people, and then in turn exploit that enmity to embitter their people against the foreigner."

MANHATTAN, N.Y. — A small group of activists gathered near City Hall on Monday to call for the resignation of Police Commissioner William Bratton and a federal investigation into what they called the Police Department’s “culture of brutality.”
The rally featured calls for Bratton’s ouster, in the wake of the death of Eric Garner, a Port Richmond man who died while being arrested by plain-clothed NYPD officers on Thursday.
"He is a poison to communities of color in New York City," said Josmar Trujillo, one of the activists, said of the city’s top cop. "We need a New York City that has justice for everyone."
"Being Jewish is NOT the same as being Zionist. Our own history of persecution as Jews helps us to understand and support the struggle of the Palestinians to determine their own destiny"

A 400-pound asthmatic Staten Island dad died Thursday after a cop put him in a chokehold and other officers appeared to slam his head against the sidewalk, video of the incident shows.
“I can’t breathe! I can’t breathe!” Eric Garner, 43, repeatedly screamed after at least five NYPD officers took him down in front of a Tompkinsville beauty supply store when he balked at being handcuffed.
Within moments Garner, a married father of six children with two grandchildren, stopped struggling and appeared to be unconscious as police called paramedics to the scene. An angry crowd gathered, some recording with smartphones.
“When I kissed my husband this morning, I never thought it would be for the last time,” Garner’s wife, Esaw, told the Daily News.
She got no details from police until after she had gone to the hospital to identify his body, she said.
“I saw him with his eyes wide open and I said, ‘Babe, don’t leave me, I need you.’ But he was already gone,” she said.
