O eixo das vítimas

'All three main agents of the War on Terror (the US after 9/11, Israel, the Arabs) see themselves as victims and use their victimhood to legitimize their expansionist politics. There is a way in which 9/11 came at the right moment to justify America’s aggressive military expansionism: now that we are also victims, we can defend ourselves strike back. The US/Israel alliance, this strange association of the most religious (developed) nation in the world insisting on the separation of religion and state, and the most irreligious people in the world existing on the religious nature of their state, can thus present itself as an axis of victims.' Slavoj Žižek, 2008, Violence: 107
