If one country kills unarmed civilians in three bordering countries on the same day, is that not an act of war? Israel killed unarmed civilians in cold blood in Gaza & The West Bank, murdered Syrian nationals in the Golan Heights and at least another ten were butchered by the Israeli’s on the Lebanese border.
Yesterday marked the “Nakba”, or day of “catastrophe” for Palestine.
The “Nakba” is how Palestinians refer to the 1948 founding of the state of Israel, when an estimated 900,000 Palestinians fled or were expelled following Israel’s declaration of statehood, in one of the greatest criminal acts of ethnic cleansing.
Israel will always immerse itself in praise of itself and its democracy on a nauseating level, whilst claiming it is surrounded by blood thirsty Arabs who want to drive the poor israeli’s into the sea.
The truth of the matter is that Israel is a quasi ethnic/military dictatorship that outlaws any peaceful protest, as the Nakba Day is virtually outlawed by the same powers that were responsible for it.
We all know Israel is repeatedly supported by the US, Britain and the EU, which means we have to show our solidarity with Palestine. It is our collective obligation to ensure our government changes its policy.
We must keep the pressure up until there is a free and independent Palestine.
