I also imagine that King might also remind Bono of what John Lennon sang about women in the "70's for today the Palestinians have become the 'N's' of the world:

We insult her every day on TV
And wonder why she has no guts or confidence
When she's young we kill her will to be free
While telling her not to be so smart we put her down for being so dumb.-
John Lennon, "Woman is the "N" of the World"

King united people of all faiths and civil secular society in the battle for civil rights for African Americans based on respect for human dignity, and driven by ethical and moral standards, and so, I imagine he might tell US all:

If you have ears to hear; hear!

If you have eyes to see; see!

If you have a heart of flesh may it bleed for the least among us-all the "N's" of the world- for only in solidarity do "have it in our power to begin the world again"-Tom Paine


I beseech US all to be a part of "the change you want to see in the world" [Gandhi] and may we all plunge into the righteous flowing stream of BDS, seeking justice and peace through NONVIOLENT actions until Israel behaves like a democracy should!



And may a righteous indignation over hypocrisy in high places fill US all with the desire for PEACE/Shalom/Salaam and might we all feel within this paraphrase from Luke 4:14:22:

May the Spirit of the Mystery we call the Lord be upon you.
