Intifada Activism Needed
Liberation depends on commitment to work for it.
by Stephen Lendman
Six-five years of mass slaughter, destruction, dispossession, occupation, persecution, apartheid, and slow-motion genocide is enough.
Freedom requires committed activism. Liberation depends on working for what Israel denies. The alternative is more of what's too intolerable to bear.
Daily headlines reveal what Palestinians endure:
IDF invades Jenin pre-dawn . Homes were stormed and ransacked. Two Palestinian youths were arrested . Nearby villages were targeted. Nonviolent Palestinians were kidnapped.
Bi'in's weekly peaceful anti-Separation Wall protest was attacked. Friday's was dedicated to Lubna Hanash. On Wednesday, Israeli forces murdered her in front of Al-Quds University. They did so in cold blood.
She was a fourth year political science student. She was walking peacefully with friends. Israeli soldiers approached her in a civilian car. They shot and killed her. They'll have to explain why.
Lubna's death wasn't an isolated incident. It's reflects daily repression. Palestinians are systematically brutalized. Intimidation, injuries, arrests and deaths follow.
Media scoundrels ignore what happens. It's part of Palestinians' daily life. Most people can't imagine what they endure. They can explain best of all.
From day one post-conflict, Israel violated Pillar of Cloud memorandum of understanding terms . They state:
(1) Israel to cease air, land, and sea hostilities, as well as stop targeted killings.
(2) Palestinian resistance groups to halt rocket and other attacks.
(3) Easing blockade restrictions modestly. Not enough to matter. Gaza's siege continues. Free movement remains restricted.
