Quotable: Eduardo Galeano on terrorists

“Is justice right side up?

“Has world justice been frozen in an upside-down position?

“The shoe-thrower of Iraq, the man who hurled his shoes at Bush, was condemned to three years in prison. Doesn’t he deserve, instead, a medal?

“Who is the terrorist? The hurler of shoes or their recipient? Is not the real terrorist the serial killer who, lying, fabricated the Iraq war, massacred a multitude, and legalized and ordered torture?”

–Eduardo Galeano, “Is Justice Right Side Up?”
