Palestine: Occupied, Divided, Isolated, Oppressed and Unaided - by Stephen Lendman


Imagine the following:


You're ruthlessly oppressed in an occupied country under a system of institutionalized racism, affording rights solely to Jews. You have no recognized nation, no right of citizenship, no democratic freedoms or civil liberties, including no power over your daily life.


You live in constant fear, collectively punished, politically denied, and economically strangled in a continuing cycle of violence. Military orders deny free expression and movement, enclose population centers, close borders, and impose curfews, checkpoints, roadblocks, separation walls, electric fences, dispossessions, land seizures, and domination over all aspects of life under draconian military orders like the following:


-- No. 92 giving Israel control of all West Bank and Gaza water;


-- No. 158 stipulating that Palestinians can't construct water installations without (nearly impossible to get) permit permission and those built will be confiscated or demolished;


-- No. 1015 requiring Palestinians get permission to plant trees on their own land;


-- No 128 authorizing the IDF to take over any Palestinian business not open during regular business hours;
