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.
