For 66 years the Palestinian people have been brutalised by an apartheid Israeli government. The ground offensive begun this morning is just a continuation of murder and mayhem Israel has visited upon Palestinians every day since 1948.
For example on average every three days over the past 13 years a Palestinian child had been murdered by Israel. You’d never know that reading our mainstream media which are little more than propaganda mouthpieces for Israel just as the media were once propaganda outlets for the racist white South African government.
The firing of rockets from Gaza into Israel has never been the issue. They are a symptom of the real problem which is Israel’s brutal military occupation of the West Bank; its medieval siege of Gaza; its on-going theft of Palestinian land; its apartheid wall; its murder of Palestinians on a daily basis…
The only thing for humanity to celebrate from all this is the heroism of the Palestinian people. Their spirit ofindomitable determination and resistance will win through in the end.
Our job in New Zealand is to stand squarely with the Palestinian people and isolate the apartheid Israeli government and its vile and inhuman policies and practices.
Let’s show the brutal bullies that we stand with Palestinians.
We are all Palestinians!
