Zionist Jews actually had a design on the land of Palestine, the idea of creating a homeland for Jews in the land of Palestine, and this is really the beginning of the conflict.
Our media portrayed Mideast violence as though it’s an inherent part of the culture and region, implying that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is an ancient problem with little hope of solution. These misperception come from the fact that we’re only hearing a fraction of the story. You are about to witness images and testimony largely hidden from mainstream America.
Here you have Palestinians that have no input whatsoever in the policies that are made, they’re not on the city council, they’re not in any of the decision making bodies on the West Bank or Gaza. They’re certainly not on the government. The policies are made in order to ensure Israeli control.
Of the 500 Palestinian villages of what became Israel in 1948, 400 were destroyed.
I am from Al-Quds (Jerusalem). I’m a witness… I know the Arabs, the Arabs are…very good… no problem until the Zionist movement start. My Grandmother tell me before the Zionist movement start…they babysit each others’ kids. They borrow from both each other like brothers.. The idea of Zionism… you take away the land from the Palestinians, from the Arabs… started all fighting, not Arabs the problem, not Jews the problem, not Judaism, not Muslim, only Zionism…
The U.S.-Israeli relationship is really unique on Capitol Hill. In my twenty-two years that I served there, there was never a moment when there was really a debate about U.S. policy in the Middle East. It was always what does Israel want and almost always Congress gave them exactly what they wanted without any debate, without any amendments being considered.
The American media play a major role in continuing U.S. support for Israel through leaving out vast swaths of information. It is the classic case of lying through omission. Major statements by American diplomats, Senators, military leaders, are going unreported. Sentences are being removed from news stories. Information is being manipulated.
Israel receives as much foreign economic assistance as all the countries combined in the world.
Of the total Aid the US gives annually Israel receives ONE THIRD.
In March 2003 the US Government approved $10 billion in aid for Israel. Spent domestically that $10 billion could buy health care coverage for 4,202,251 children without proper coverage…
From 1949 to 2006 US aid to Israel amounts to: $108 billion. Today it averages $2 to $3 billion per year, or $6 to $8 million per day.
Criticizing Israeli government policy for assassinating people, or for shooting children, and maiming them… for thousands of children that’s not anti-Semitic, that’s humane.
