So, it goes like this, The U.S. government and it’s criminal Israeli counterpart keep boasting about their desire to resume their so called version of peace with the Palestinians. But, only on their own term and without anyone else interference or opinion.
Basically, it’s the old policy of Israel dictating its terms to the U.S, which in turn shoves those terms down the throats of the rest of the world using all means of sanctions & veto power to ensure that the Palestinians have no chance in hell to have a fair or just resolution against the blatant Israeli occupation of Palestinian lands and constant provocation, humiliation, imprisonment, deportation, home demolishing of any Palestinian who dares object Israel’s apartheid policies in the name of securing their rogue Jewish state in place of Palestine.
Long Live Palestine…
The old lie that Palestine was dry desert waiting for a people is just that –a lie. This clip is for all people to see the beauty of Palestine and the Palestinian People before they were ethnically cleansed and murdered and made into refugees by the criminal State of Israel.
Residents of the Ofra settlement are overjoyed that the Israeli prime minister has backed the so-called natural growth of the settlements, insisting it is impossible to stop, and that they have the right to expand their settlements on occupied Palestinian lands.
The sky is free. Except over my head. The land I own, held hostage, raped, plundered for all her goods. The trees of my heritage, like the tree of my family, cut off, limb by limb. And the water, that precious dew which slaked my thirst, redirected to quench mouths, irrigate crops,while I watch from a distance in forced silence.
