East River Ferry, Greenpoint Terminal (India Street)
Joe Ellison is a ferry captain who witnessed the panic at its height, when residents tried to flee en masse.
“I remember these young girls who hopped aboard once, about a week into this mess. I don’t know, probably early twenties. Flustered. Told me they’d tried to hold out but just couldn’t take it anymore, needed to get away.”

Why single out Israel? Because Israel is the only serial human rights abuser that enjoys consistent and enthusiastic support by all the liberal democracies of the North.
This support gives the Israeli state an impunity that Iran, Sudan, Zimbabwe or Burma, to name but four, do not enjoy because their human rights abuses are all—rightly and however unprincipled—attacked by the major powers.
Israel alone is allowed to commit war crimes and crimes against humanity; it alone is allowed to repeatedly ignore United Nations resolutions without any opposition from northern governments and major institutions.
This is so important. No one is saying Israel is the only state to ever commit human rights abuses, but it is unique in enjoying support for those human rights abuses [from most of powerful states] by painting itself, the oppressor, repeatedly as the victim.
