The Naked Violence, Barbarism, Terrorism and Nazism of Zionism: In defense and solidarity to the Palestinian People Part II
“A few days ago, I completely lost all trust, respect and confidence with President Obama. I welcome his winning the presidency in 2008. I thought that by his victory, he would renounce his country’s aggression and imperialism! I was wrong!
“He was already eaten by the American system. That is why when he addressed the General Assembly of the United Nations to speak about the Palestinian question… though he did not uttered the word veto, it is clear from his statement that the Palestinian people would not get his support for their cause.
“I am wondering, why it took him six months to finally issue the condemnation. Further, while he condemned Syria for its brutality, he is not condemning the Israeli government for its brutalities being committed to the Palestinian people. Is this a case of selective justice? Or, perhaps double standards of the highest order?
“Other guilty parties in this issue are those so-called “brothers and sister countries” of Palestine.
“Who are they? They are those so-called Arab nations and Muslim countries. Yes, they are helping Palestine in its struggle. No question about it, so many economic aids has been given and countless humanitarian missions had been sent.
“However if I may I ask: how many of these countries and nations have recognised Palestine as an independent state? All they do is condemn Israel’s barbarism and militarism, US interference and UK’s inutility. The most substantive and utterly important thing to do is to recognise Palestine as a State and not merely as it is, a mere governing body.”
Nonetheless, it is but just that I must also commend and applaud the few Muslim countries that openly throw its lot to the Palestinian cause.
Bravo to Turkey, Malaysia and Chechnya!
I am also equally condemning to the fullest the various international main stream media, such as CNN, BBC and FOX News and others for their prostitution, their lies, their bias and favoritism.
The way they present and report the ‘news’ is not only a perversion of the truth but a mockery of the real thing that is happening.
Shame to all of them!
In the same vein, I would like to commend and applaud the few trustworthy media that are reporting the on-going genocide in an objective manner!
Bravo to Democracy Now, PressTV, RT and other small, but independent media outlet!
Lastly, I would like to commend and applaud all the people of the world who are protesting in the capital of their countries, from Paris to London to Karachi to Manila up to Nigeria to register their point to their bullshit governments and to show their solidarity to the Palestinian people!
For it is written, “you don’t need to be a Muslim to stand up for Gaza. You just need to be human”, because in the end, “it is not about religion”, for the undeniable truth is that: “it’s all about Humanity.”
In the immortal words of a great man, comrade Nelson Madiba Mandela:
“We know too well that our freedom is incomplete without the freedom of the Palestinians.”
Henceforth, the world must unite and stand as One for Gaza and the Palestinian people!
