Checkpoints continue to increase amidst rapacious land grab by Israelis. The resultant expansion of illegal settlements continue unabated and the world is deathly silent as the American Government moved it’s embassy to Jerusalem.
Christians in America see this move by the Americans as Biblical in its proportion. Israelis see this move as something out of Biblical prophecy, even though they are neither Christians nor believe in the Bible.
At the United Nations, US ambassador Nikki Haley shamelessly blames the victims for their own deaths.
In the meantime, the apartheid, Zionist state of Israel continue to thumb its nose at conventional norms as it’s soldiers indiscriminately slaughter dozens and dozens of unarmed Palestinian men women and children.
No one is spared death by the Israeli snipers they shoot and kill journalists and even those in wheelchairs. It is a shocking display of genocide being visited upon an already oppressed people who have lost everything and have been living under the oppressive bootheels of Israel since 1948.
Israel and the United States maintained that the people killed are Hamas functionaries who breached the fences to enter Israel.
However independent reporting has shown that this is an unadulterated lie.
In many cases, those who lose their lives are actually the victims of sniper fire while they are in the buffer zones away from the Fences.
The fact that these protestors are killed by sniper fire is a stark indicator that these people are not killed scaling any fence but are slaughtered by the Zionist army simply for protesting.
Amidst the silent collusion of the rest of the world, the government of South Africa has withdrawn its ambassador to Israel.
South Africa which suffered under vicious apartheid rule and which benefitted from the graciousness of conscientious people across the globe now feels it has a responsibility to stand up and call out Israeli for what it is doing to the people of Palestine.
It is shocking that any group of people regardless of their religious persuasion could assume that this genocide is somehow sanctioned by a sovereign deity.
If this mass slaughter is God-sanctioned then this writer wants no part of that God.
What kind of world are we living in when we are afraid, or at best unconcerned, about the indiscriminate killing of our fellow human beings?
Have we become so immobilized by fear, of what may happen may be done to us if we speak out, and so as a consequence, we remain silent? How then do we expect to leave our world in a state in which our children may live as free human beings when we lack the courage to say enough?
How can we allow our fears to freeze us into immobility against fascism, racism, bigotry, xenophobia, sexism, and the other vices which would divide us into little-balkanized camps, and keep us hiding behind walls and fortifications?
It is time for the world to hold the Zionist state of Israel accountable for its crimes against humanity.
There cannot justifiably be two different set of rules Governing our social order, one for Israel and another for everyone else.
This is unacceptable and it must stop.
