Last month the 191 member United Nations overwhelmingly passed a resolution demanding that the rogue state called Israel, forcibly established by European Zionists after WWII, stop its theft and state terrorism against the Native Palestinians.
Recently, on November 28, 2003 the rogue Zionist state was declared to be in violation of the UN's resolution, which demanded that it cease unlawful construction of barriers through Palestinian-owned land in an area called the West Bank. The UN resolution had also demanded that the rogue state called Israel dismantle those barriers already built.
UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan gave an oral report before the UN's General Assembly about Israel's state terrorist campaign against its Natives and their continued violation of UN resolutions. He reportedly said the construction of the barriers, which are a system of walls, fences, trenches, razor wire and military roads, was in violation of international law and "could damage the longer-term prospects for peace".
Israeli Zionists reacted angrily to Annan's warning that further UN action against the Zionist rogue state is not ruled out by the resolution. Israeli Zionists, who claim all of the Palestinians' land as well as great portions of land in Iraq, say the barriers are needed to protect them from reprisals as they continue their land grabs. Although their victims have no tanks, helicopters or artillery with which to defend themselves, some victims, all of whom are limited to retaliation by stone-throwing, reach a point of desperation and become suicide bombers.
The barriers, which are 100 miles long at present, run along a jagged border with Palestinian-owned land in the West Bank. Palestinians say the barriers, which would eventually extend nearly 400 miles from north to south, are a covert scheme to make them feel that they will lose more of their land unless they agree to a new, smaller Palestinian state apart from the original one that Zionists have already stolen and renamed Israel. Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has reportedly said that he is willing to give back his recent land grabs if Palestinians agree to a new, smaller Palestine. But he also warned that if they do not, Israel might grab more land.
Not all Palestinians are opposed to the covert Zionist scheme for a new, smaller Palestine. The rogue state of Israel is America's number one recipient of U.S. foreign aid and Israel in turn doles out $60 million each month to the Palestinian Authority, which it hopes will become the government of the new, smaller Palestine. In support of this aim, the Palestinian Authority have claimed all of the West Bank and Gaza Strip for a new state in a show of bravado to win Palestinian support for the covert Zionist scheme. Palestinian Foreign Minister Nabil Sha'ath reportedly said that Sharon "should declare he is committed to the road map and implement all the Israeli commitments".
To date, most Palestinians have ignored the overtures of the Palestinian Authority for them to agree to a new, smaller Palestine. Many Palestinians, still in possession of their keys to their homes that are located in Occupied Palestine, dismiss the Palestinian Authority as Zionist agents. Most Palestinians do not want a new, smaller Palestine. Instead, they want their homes back in which European Zionists are now living. And if they cannot have them back, they want to be paid. According to Marwan Abukhaled, an American shopowner with family in Palestine, "we are Holocaust victims by Nazi Zionists. What they do to us they learned from their Nazi teachers. But it is our right to have our homes or be compensated for them. This means we must have access to the laws of society and the laws of the world. The laws of Occupied Palestine, AKA Israel, should be laws for Christians and Muslims too, not just Jewish people there. In the old Palestine, the laws were for all. It is wrong for Israelis to exclude Christians and Muslims from society and the laws".
As the United Nations has shown, many people agree with Mr. Abukhaled. What may not be known is that there are Israelis and Jews around the world who also agree with Mr. Abukhaled. There has always been a Godly portion who has consistently advocated peace and justice, but their voices are often drowned out by those of the warmongers. Rabbi Lerner at Tikkun.org is one voice who has consistently advocated peace based on inclusion rather than exclusion. At present, the Christian and Muslim people of Palestine will not settle for anything less than full inclusion into society. They want elected representatives in government, not selected representatives. They are weary of being pushed aside like the Native Americans were pushed aside to dwell in tent villages called reservations. They demand justice and freedom, and end to Zionist state terrorism. The UN has echoed that.
