In a recent New York Times op-ed, Bono wrote of his hope "that the regimes in North Korea, Myanmar and elsewhere are taking note of the trouble an aroused citizenry can give to tyrants."

Bono wrote of his hope that "people in places filled with rage and despair, places like the Palestinian territories, will in the days ahead find among them their Gandhi, their King, their Aung San Suu Kyi."

Bono is apparently clueless that an "aroused citizenry" of people of conscience have already responded to the tyranny of Israel's military occupation and apartheid practices by joining the Palestinian civil society's call for NONVIOLENT Boycotts, Divestments, and Sanctions against Israel until they change their undemocratic behavior.

Bono is apparently also unaware of the thousands of NONVIOLENT resisters to the Israeli occupation who have been imprisoned by Israel without charges or trials.
