Ideology v. Reality, life of contradictions

We are a people who love demagogues and empty ideologies without action.
We are supportive of Palestine; but not of Palestinians.  We  are against the American occupation of Iraq; but do not support Iraqis.
We confine Palestinians, Iraqis, and other refugees to horrifying boxed camps that feel like prison; and we still complain when they enter our countries.  We complain that the prices have increased because of them, we complain that there is no room for them, and then we complain that our leaders are not supporting the Palestinian or Iraqi cause.  Lets be fair, and lets start by supporting the cause ourselves as well.
