People who go “both countries are at fault”

What they think they sound like:

“I’m so rational. The truth is somewhere in the middle, they’re both wrong. I’m so nuanced and enlightened with my views.”

What they actually sound like:

“History and context are things that do not exist to me. In whatever dimension I exist in, I believe that there is an equivalence between an advanced occupying army that is notorious for war crimes, and an occupied brutalized population.”

No, this is not the aftermath of an earthquake, but an Israeli raid on a Palestinian house in Askar Refugee Camp near Nablus. The Israeli army carries out such raids every single day (many of them in the dead of night) to humiliate and shake up the population; to remind Palestinians that they are not allowed to live normal lives.
A testimony from an ex-Israeli soldier:
"During patrols inside the casbah we’d do many "mappings". Mappings mean going into a house we have no intelligence on. We go in to see what’s inside, who lives there. We didn’t search for weapons or things like that. The mappings were designed to make the Palestinians feel that we are there all the time.
We go in, walk around, look around. The commander takes a piece of paper and … makes a drawing of the house, what it looks like inside, and I had a camera. I was told to bring it. They said: “You take all the people, stand them against the wall and take their picture.” Then [the pictures are] transferred to, I don’t know, the General Security Service, the battalion or brigade intelligence unit, so they have information on what the people look like. What the residents look like. I’m a young soldier, I do as they say. I take their pictures, a horrible experience in itself, because taking people’s pictures at 3am, I … it humiliated them, I just can’t describe it.
And the interesting thing? I had the pictures for around a month. No one came to get them. No commander asked about them, no intelligence officer took them. I realised it was all for nothing. It was just to be there. It was like a game.”

The pro-Israel bias of the BBC and other Western media outlets will have you believe that the level of destruction in Gaza is in Israel and the relative calm in Israel is Gaza.
The death toll in Gaza has now reached 40 - overwhelmingly civilian, including children -  as Israel intensified its latest bombardment of the densely populated Gaza Strip. 
Western media continues to treat the words of the Israeli government as gospel - that they’re only “targeting Hamas”. It’s one of the biggest lies ever told. Ex-Israeli soldiers admitted being ordered to “cleanse Gaza” in the past. Nothing has changed.
There are literally thousands of instances where the Israeli military have intentionally killed Palestinian civilians. Take for example mother and daughter Majda and Rayah Abu Hajaj who were shot by an Israeli soldier as they were waving white flags. (He was ordered to serve… 45 days.)
Never forget that Israel is targeting Palestinian civilians and always has done. They’re not collateral damage - they are the intended targets.

Q

Anonymous asked:

What have Mandela, tutu, and Malcolm x said about Israel being oppressive? Could you possibly provide links?

A

redphilistine:

Nelson Mandela (ﷲ يرحمه): “We identify with the PLO because just like ourselves, they are fighting for the right of self-determination.” [3:59] “Arafat is a comrade-in-arms, and we treat him as such.” [9:00] 

Desmond Tutu: “I’ve been very deeply distressed in my visit to the Holy Land; it reminded me so much of what happened to us black people in South Africa. I have seen the humiliation of the Palestinians at checkpoints and roadblocks, suffering like us when young white police officers prevented us from moving about.

On one of my visits to the Holy Land I drove to a church with the Anglican bishop in Jerusalem. I could hear tears in his voice as he pointed to Jewish settlements. I thought of the desire of Israelis for security. But what of the Palestinians who have lost their land and homes?”

Malcom X (ﷲ يرحمه): “The ever-scheming European imperialists wisely placed Israel where she could geographically divide the Arab world, infiltrate and sow the seed of dissension among African leaders and also divide the Africans against the Asians.

Zionist Israel’s occupation of Arab Palestine has forced the Arab world to waste billions of precious dollars on armaments, making it impossible for these newly independent Arab nations to concentrate on strengthening the economies of their countries and elevate the living standard of their people.

And the continued low standard of living in the Arab world has been skillfully used by the Zionist propagandists to make it appear to the Africans that the Arab leaders are not intellectually or technically qualified to lift the living standard of their people … thus, indirectly “enducing” Africans to turn away from the Arabs and towards the Israelis for teachers and technical assistance…

In short the Zionist argument to justify Israel’s present occupation of Arab Palestine has no intelligent or legal basis in history.
