What a plrasuee to find someone who thinks through the issues

Lord Byron and Gaza

In long-ago 1820 Lord Byron wrote the following stanzas, seemingly with the Gaza siege-breaking Freedom Flotilla in mind:
When a man hath no freedom to fight for at home,

Let him combat for that of his neighbours;
Let him think of the glories of Greece and of Rome,
And get knock'd on the head for his labours,
To do good to mankind is the chivalrous plan,
And is always as nobly requited;
Then battle for freedom wherever you can,
And, if not shot or hang'd, you'll get knighted.
