Who Are the Terrorists, Who Steal Palestinian
Lands and Burn Palestinian Crops?

When Helen Thomas told a Rabbi that the Jews should go back to
where they came from, he asked where that would be.
Her response was
as honest and appropriate as it was direct: "Poland, Germany, America..."
For that she lost her job as the best White House reporter America has had.
Her response was also deserved, for the land theft from the
Palestinians has been as massive and undeserved as that of any empire of
The Israeli idea was to uproot as many Palestinians as
possible. From March 1948 until the end of that year the plan was
implemented despite the failed attempt by some Arab states to oppose it.
Some 750,000 Palestinians were expelled, 531 villages were destroyed
and 11 urban neighbourhoods demolished; and America refers to Palestinians,
Hamas and Hezbollah as terrorists. America even had Nelson Mandela on a
terrorist watch list until 2008!
Half of Palestineís population was
uprooted and half of its villages destroyed.
The State of Israel was
established in over 80 percent of Palestine, turning Palestinian villages
into Jewish settlements and recreation parks, but allowing a small number of
Palestinians to remain citizens in it.
Who are the terrorists?
When Palestinians can't get rid of illegal settlers, the Israelis burn
Recently, Hani Abu Haikel, in occupied Hebron
suffered the eighth time settlers have burned his property, including an
incident ten years ago when they burned all of his trees.
before the latest incident, Israeli police went to Abu Haikel's home and
asked if he had any intention of leaving his land. They had performed this
Mafia-like visit on previous occasions.
The next day, when the
settlers sprayed and lit chemicals on Abu Haikel's olive trees, Israeli
soldiers blocked Palestinians from putting out the fire.
day goes by without the State of Israel demolishing an Arab home between the
Jordan River and the sea. The hum of bulldozers is the constant background
noise of Zionism.
According to Gilad Atzmon "The Jewish State and
its lobbies are the greatest threat to world peace."
much that anyone could celebrate as world peace, but things could get worse.
Is it conceivable that Israel and its lobbies could bring about the final
battle between good and evil?
As long as those lobbies function
endlessly all over the planet, there can be little doubt about the final
result. The lobbies continue to exercise the control they have demonstrated
so unmistakably over governments and media worldwide.
Parliament, almost as bad as the U.S. Congress, is under the thumb of
Israeli interests. Eighty percent of ruling party MPs are CFI members
(Conservative Friends of Israel).
Haaretz reported that "Israel and
the United States regard Iran as the region's main proliferation threat,
accusing Iran of seeking to develop a nuclear weapons capability in secret."
How can Iran be the regionís main proliferation threat when it
hasn't even developed a single nuclear weapon while Israel has secretly
developed more than 200 nuclear bombs?
Professor Jim Fetzer reminds
us that Benjamin Netanyahu has been claiming that Iran was about to get the
bomb for the last 30 years.
American intelligence agencies
concluded in 2007 that Iran was not pursuing a nuclear weapons program, a
conclusion it reaffirmed in 2011.
Commenting on Israel's leader,
Stephen Lendman wrote, "Netanyahu racketed up tensions with bogus claims
about Iranian plans to develop nuclear weapons."
"Never mentioned is Israel's long-standing pre-emptive policy to use nuclear
weapons if threatened. It's well known that it's nuclear armed and
Send these settler thieves and terrorists back to where
they came from.
