Andrea Mitchell's recent interview with President Ahmadinejad, regarding Zionism, can be viewed here:


On July 22, 2007, this reporter wrote from occupied east Jerusalem:
"In a nutshell, there is a deep schizophrenia in the Holy Land; what we see, hear and talk. Zionism is the original sin; Zionism is an untouchable icon. You can curse Mohammad, you can curse Mary, but not Zionism."- Professor Albert Aghazarian, July 19, 2007, during Sabeel's 2nd International young Adult Conference: 40 Years in the Wilderness"40 Years of Occupation...

On page A3 of the July 20, 2007 edition of Haaretz that deep schizophrenia was printed in black on newsprint.

Two years after the "disengagement' from the Gaza Strip, the world could see it was nothing more than a redeployment for Israel continues to maintain full control of air, water and sea borders, but this was not mentioned.

The Gush Katif evacuees from the Gaza Strip-who settled there illegally under international law- were commemorating what the state had destroyed; but under international law their colony should never have been built.

Soldiers in the Kissufim area reported that the evacuees continued to return to the roadblock where the entrance to the Gush Katif colony had been and would stare into the distance with tears in their eyes.

Rabbi Kobi Bornstein, a former resident of Neveh Dekalim and leader of the anti-disengagement struggle, spoke about, "Planting the desire to return. We are not talking about breaking through fences, but about planting the desire in the people of Israel to return there. The willingness to return if possible comes to the fore in the video interview project that Mordi Kirshner is doing for the Settlers' Committee (the umbrella organization of the evacuees). He has filmed 160 out of 300 planned interviews. We give the person a chance to tell his (or her) story. The interviews reveal a sense of betrayal felt toward the man seen as the patron of Gush Katif (Ariel Sharon) and disappointment with Israeli society after the disengagement. Many interviewees reported dreams of seeing their former homes and waking up in the morning with a sense of happiness."

The indigenous Palestinians began to flee from their homes when Israel became a state for fear of death by the hands of the Zionists who came to claim their homes and property, which created 750,000 refugees who have now multiplied into the millions.

All are still denied the inalienable right to return to their legally owned property.

Israel's statehood was contingent upon upholding the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

Article 13 affirms:

(1) Everyone has the right to freedom of movement and residence within the borders of each state.

(2) Everyone has the right to leave any country, including his own, and to return to his country.
