Murder Is Israel's Modus Operandi
By Khalid Amayreh
PIC, Al-Jazeerah, CCUN, April 11, 2011
The unprovoked murder by the Israeli occupation army of three Hamas'
resistance officers in the Gaza Strip on 2 April is a classical example
of Israel's murderous mentality. The unprovoked assassination of the three,
carried out from the air, came only a few days after Hamas and other
Palestinian resistance groups voiced their willingness to maintain the calm.
However, it seems that bloodshed is the perfect environment in which
Israel thrives and prospers.
Israel claimed the three victims
were planning to carry out a resistance operation against its
murderous army. However, it is most likely that the claim has no iota of
truth to it and that it is only meant as a media pretext to justify
Israel knows well that Palestinians in general
can't just keep silent in the face of Zionist aggression and terror since
doing so would only encourage the Nazi-like Zionist
establishment to murder and maim more Palestinians.
is only logical to argue that the latest atrocity in Gaza will only generate
another cycle of violence and bloodshed which will cause the death of yet
more Palestinian civilians.
The Palestinians have every right in the
book to resist their Zionist occupiers and tormentors. The Zionists continue
to illegally occupy the Palestinians' homeland, including Jerusalem , the
soul and heart of the Levant . Moreover, Israel has been laying siege to
Gaza Strip for more than three years, bringing the coastal enclave, with its
1.7 million inhabitants, to the brink of starvation and economic meltdown.
In light, the Palestinian struggle against Israel acquires perfect
legitimacy because all people under the sun have an inherent right to
freedom from foreign occupation.
The murder of three resistance
fighters in Gaza is, of course, not the first and won't be the
last of its kind. Israel, after all, is a murderous state par excellence.
However, the latest murder illustrates or re-illustrates a fact that some
Palestinians, Arabs and Muslims tend to forget, namely that Israel and peace
constitute an eternal oxymoron and that reaching a peaceful modus vivendi
with this barbarian, cruel and hateful entity is a far fetched possibility
at the very best.
Indeed, living with Israel is like
living with a treacherous, venomous snake. Israel seems to love this kind of
epithet on the ground that being feared guarantees security for the virulent
However, Israel and its leaders must also realize that
Israel is really more hated than feared, very much like a criminal
outlaw who is at large but one who will be captured
and eliminated sooner or later.
With this realization, the
realization that Israel is an irredeemably and hopelessly criminal state,
where pugnacity and aggression are an eternal and intrinsic character,
Palestinians, especially the Palestinian Authority, must reach the ultimate
conclusion that peace with Israel is a real impossibility.
Palestinians must also realize that in order to create a semblance of
deterrence vis-à-vis Israel, they must start building a worldwide coalition
to pressure the Zionist regime into stopping its nearly daily criminal
aggressions against the Palestinian people.
More importantly, the
Palestinians should abandon, once and for all, the illusive peace
process under whose rubric Israel has been able to steal more Palestinian
rights and build more Jewish expansion.
Then, of course, they
should work diligently to restore their national unity on solid basis.
The Palestinians alone won't be able to fight both Israel
and the United States. I say the United States because Israel relies on
America's technological and financial capabilities in waging its
protracted, genocidal colonial war on the Palestinian people who have
the truth and justice on their side but unfortunately lack the
military means to enforce their legitimate rights.
Hence, it is
imperative that the Palestinian governments in both Ramallah and
Gaza do their utmost to utilize the recent revolutionary changes in
the Arab world, especially in Egypt, against the criminal Zionist
Egypt, a country of eighty million people, has great
potentials, and if utilized properly, can be made into a tremendous asset
for the Palestinian cause.
At this juncture, we shouldn't appear as
if we are pushing Egypt toward renewing actual hostilities with
Israel, although this may be a forgone eventuality, especially if Israel
continued to pursue an agenda based on aggression, occupation and expansion.
None the less, the Egyptian people must always push their government to
show Israel the "red eye" on every occasion and opportunity.
Certainly, the Egyptian people are always expected to make sure that there
is a zero warmth and a zero friendliness in whatever relations Egypt will
still have with Israel .
In short, de facto hostility with Israel
must be the order of the day all over the Arab world from
Morocco to Bahrain . And Arabs and Muslims must search for every conceivable
area to harm the Zionist regime, in order to undermine its
ability to persecute and savage the Palestinians with immunity- from
media and internet use to economic boycott.
countries which have peace treaties with Israel might object to this kind of
aggressive activism. However, popular pressure must always
be exerted on these obsequious regimes in order to keep
relations with criminal Israel at the most minimal level.
so doing, commemoration of important anniversaries should always be
highlighted and immense awareness efforts should be constantly made in
order to ensure that the regime's normalization agents remain isolated.
There is no doubt that Israel will meet the same fate that other
similar criminal entities eventually met, entities such as Nazi Germany.
However, in order to effect and realize this ultimate goal, we need to
exercise more steadfastness and determination. And we must never flinch from
giving the necessary sacrifices for freedom.
Israel may be
militarily strong for the time being. But our resolve for freedom must be
stronger. Besides, justice and truth are on our side.
