Occupation Hell in Palestine

Israel ruthlessly persecuted Palestinians.

by Stephen Lendman

Forty-five years and counting. In 1977, John Pilger titled his documentary film " Palestine Is Still The Issue ." It's no different today than then. In many respects, it's worse.

He said his film "was about a nation of people - the Palestinians - forced off their land and later subjected to a military occupation by Israel. An occupation condemned by the United Nations and almost every country in the world except Britain" and America.

Add a couple of small Pacific islands that go along with everything Washington demands.

For its part, Israel has a powerful ally in America. US media scoundrels never broadcast Pilger's film. In August 2003, he said:

"So in 25 years, if we're to speak of the great injustice here, nothing changed. What has changed is that the Palestinians have fought back."

His comments came during the second Intifada. About a year later, it ended. A third far greater one than the others is needed. Expect it one day. People tolerate abuse only so long before exploding. One heard round the world is long overdue.

Palestinians will again have their say. Occupation harshness assures it. Corrupt PA officials selling out their people for benefits they derive may hasten it sooner than otherwise.

Palestinians have been "(s)tateless and humiliated for so long." Twice before, they challenged Israel's might. They acted on their own with few or no arms, "no tanks, no American planes and gun ships or missiles."

State terror oppresses them. It continues daily ruthlessly. Virtually all aspects of their lives are affected. Pilger's film "is about the Palestinians and a group of courageous Israelis united in the oldest human struggle - to be free."

Palestine remains the issue. Israel is the problem. It's a rogue terror state. Everyone not Jewish is considered inferior. Muslims are treated like subhumans. All rights are denied. 

Resistance is called terrorism. Freedom isn't tolerated. It never was in Occupied Palestine and isn't now. Israel's gulag is filled with thousands of non-believers. Their crime is wanting to live free on their own land in their own country.

Among them are 23 democratically elected Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC) members. Their crime is belonging to the wrong party. 

Over 200 children are wrongfully imprisoned. Perhaps their crime is being too young. Another 66 have been incarcerated over 20 years. None committed crimes. No matter. They may remain in gulag hell for life. Israel calls it justice.
