Israeli Turned Palestinian Activist

Only resistance works against tyranny.

by Stephen Lendman

Popular 1965 Hal David/Burt Bacharach lyrics said "What the world needs now is love, sweet love. It's the only thing that there's just too little of." 

It applies aptly to how Israel treats Palestinians.

Daily headlines explain. They hardly vary from one day to the next.

On June 18, Israeli forces shelled northern Gaza. Two Palestinian men were killed. Four others were injured. IDF officials called them terrorists. They were innocent civilians threatening no one.

Other air strikes injured five Palestinians, including a woman and child.

Israeli soldiers shot and killed two so-called infiltrators. It's a spurious term Israel uses to declare Palestinians illegal on their own land in their own country. It's used to extrajudicially deport them.

Other Monday headlines said settlers killed two Palestinians. The IDF invaded Jenin city and its refugee camp. Clashes followed. Live rounds were fired. Daily incursions terrorize Palestinians. Arrests and detentions follow.

Earlier in June, 15 Silwan youths were kidnapped. Parents weren't told what happened. Gaza farmers are denied permission to export crops. Fishermen are attacked at sea. Israeli border guards use Palestinian children for target practice.

No deal looks imminent to free Mahmoud Sarsak. He's maliciously imprisoned unjustly. In protest, he's been hunger striking for over 90 days. Israel doesn't care if he lives or dies. 

Neither to PA authorities. They've done nothing to help him. He's a national hero facing imminent death. 

Their contempt for their own people is scandalous. They're concerned only for their own self-interest.

Courageous Israelis react to what's intolerable. On June 17, Press TV headlined "Ex-Israeli soldier wants to join Palestinian resistance," saying:

Former IDF soldier Andre Pshenichnikov, a Tajik Jewish immigrant, announced plans to "renounce his Israeli citizenship and move to....the Deheishe Refugee Camp near Bethlehem."
