Land Day: Why It Matters
Seizing all valued parts of Judea and Samaria land is official Israeli policy.
by Stephen Lendman
In 1948, Israel stole 78% of Palestine. In 1967, they took the rest. The Israeli/Palestinian conflict remains the longest unresolved one of our time.
Long denied justice awaits. Western complicity with Israel prevents Palestinians from living free. So did Arafat's Oslo surrender. Abbas and PA cronies continue working against their own people for whatever benefits they derive.
Palestine's an isolated prison. State terror is official Israeli policy. So is attacking nonviolent Palestinian protesters. Edward Said once said, "Jonathan Swift, thou shouldst be living at this hour." He'd blanche at how bad things are now.
Occupied Palestine is the region's epicenter. Israeli police state terror suffocates Palestinians for not being Jews. An inexorable quest for dominance and corrupted self-interest deny justice.
Nonetheless, Palestinians persist. Living free on their own land drives them. Every March 30 they commemorate what's important to remember every day.
