Aaron Bushnell, Free Palestine

Requiescat In Pace, Aaron Bushnell

“My name is Aaron Bushnell. I am an active duty member of the United States Air Force, and I will no longer be complicit in genocide. I am about to engage in an extreme act of protest, but compared to what people have been experiencing in Palestine at the hands of their colonizers, it is not extreme at all. This is what our ruling class has decided will be normal. Free Palestine, Free Palestine, Free Palestine, Free Palestine, Free Palestine, Free Palestine.”

Aaron Bushnell


"Look at the Jewish inoculated dimwit who held a gun on Aaron Bushnell throughout his self-immolation. Before he gets in the camera view, you can hear him repeatedly yelling, get on the ground; get on the ground, instead of trying to help. At 2:30, you see him enter the video holding his gun on Aaron Bushnell until the very end of the video. His inhuman and pathetic actions truly exemplify the brainwashed, depraved, sick, and Judaized society the vast majority have allowed and become enslaved to. May Aaron Bushnell extremely courageous action wake up the sheeple in our country that are sleepwalking through life so that we may finally put an end to this Satanic Talmudic supremacy."

A Synopsis Of The Israel/Palestine Conflict
The following is a very short synopsis of the history of this conflict.

The following two quotes by Thich Nhat Hanh about self-immolation are excerpts from:

A Violent Insane Asylum

by Mark R. Elsis


“The press spoke then of suicide, but in the essence, it is not. It is not even a protest. What the monks said in the letters they left before burning themselves aimed only at alarming, at moving the hearts of the oppressors, and at calling the attention of the world to the suffering endured then by the Vietnamese. To burn oneself by fire is to prove that what one is saying is of the utmost importance… The Vietnamese monk, by burning himself, says with all his strength and determination that he can endure the greatest of sufferings to protect his people… To express will by burning oneself, therefore, is not to commit an act of destruction but to perform an act of construction, that is, to suffer and to die for the sake of one’s people. This is not suicide.”

Thich Nhat Hanh, describes the act of self-immolation

“Suicide is an act of self-destruction, having as causes the following: (1) lack of courage to live and to cope with difficulties; (2) defeat by life and loss of all hope; (3) desire for nonexistence… The monk who burns himself has lost neither courage nor hope; nor does he desire nonexistence. On the contrary, he is very courageous and hopeful and aspires for something good in the future. He does not think that he is destroying himself; he believes in the good fruition of his act of self-sacrifice for the sake of others… I believe with all my heart that the monks who burned themselves did not aim at the death of their oppressors but only at a change in their policy. Their enemies are not man. They are intolerance, fanaticism, dictatorship, cupidity, hatred, and discrimination which lie within the heart of man.”

Thich Nhat Hanh, explains why Thich Quang Duc’s self-immolation was not a suicide

Ignoring Immolators Lulls The Society To Sleep: Aaron Bushnell At The Israeli Embassy: “Free Palestine!” (Text and Video)

In a minimally normal society, Aaron’s words and video of his immolation would be on every major media outlet and there would be thousands outside the genocidal Israeli embassy, shutting it down.

We should see the gruesome reality of Israel’s horrors and genocide against the Palestinian people. And we should see the agony that a determined Aaron went through to try to end it.

Aaron Bushnell identified himself in the livestream video as he walked toward the Israeli embassy as “an active duty member of the U.S. Air Force” adding that “I will no longer be complicit in genocide.” He then lit himself ablaze and yelled “FREE PALESTINE!” over and over. He has reportedly died. As he burned up, uniformed personnel screamed at him to get on the ground. One officer has a gun drawn on Aaron until after he collapses. Finally another officer says: “I don’t need guns, I need fire extinguishers!” Prior to lighting himself ablaze, Aaron poured liquid from a metal bottle over his head and put on his military cap. He then took out a lighter and struggled to light it. “I’m about to engage in an extreme act of protest,” he said calmly as he walked to the embassy. “But compared to what people have been experiencing in Palestine at the hands of their colonizers, it’s not extreme at all. This is what our ruling class has decided will be normal.” The Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh says of self-immolation: “I think we must try to understand those who have sacrificed themselves. … It is done to wake us up.” One remarkable thing about Aaron is that he was active military. Lots of vets kill themselves. Quietly. Tragically. Aaron at least brought his grievance to the doorstep of criminals than die alone in quiet desperation.
