Palestinians: Dying to Live Free
Courageous Palestinians struggle to be free from Israeli occupation and viciousness.
by Stephen Lendman
Occupied Palestine is the longest unresolved conflict of our time. After 64 years, Palestinians remain largely isolated on their own.
Their suffering continues. Their rights don't matter. Western nations scorn them. Rhetorical support only is provided. It's insulting, demeaning and meaningless.
Ending Operation Pillar of Cloud changed nothing. Israel will provoke confrontations any time it wishes. Pretexts will be invented. Hamas and other resistance groups will be blamed.
The same disturbing scenario repeats. This time won't be different. It never is. Gaza remains the world's largest open-air prison.
A UN report said the Strip will be "unlivable" by 2020. It already is and has been since Israel's mid-2007 siege. Palestinians live under humanitarian crisis conditions most people can't imagine.
