Why the Palestinians

Solidarity with Palestinans

I believe the Palestinian movement has malignantly infiltatrated the anti- globalization movement. And since many of the people involved are relativiely young and impressionable they barely understand from the heart the situation which is going on between the Palestinians and Israel. People in their forties barely know how to teach and respond. I believe Palestine should exist but not in Israel and there should also be a state for the Kurds. It's hard to explain the history of Jews and Palestine the land of Israel not the land of the Palestinians. I am very anti-the IMF and the world bank and other instituitions that manipulate third world countries and first world countries currencies for self interest reasons such as feeding many rich peoples pockets. This includes using cheap labor and destroying the environment. But I do not believe in the Palestinian agenda which is clearly against Israel and the Jews and so I do not participate in rallys which I feel have been taken over by people who I do not believe have any sincere feelings to the movemnet beyond their hatred of Israel and Jews. I think as the anti-globalization (as it has been pegged) defines itself more with some of the so called solidarity movements, which are hurting the anti-globalization movement will eventually be found out for their anti-american hatred and hatred for Jews. I dont believe that most people in the United States who are involved with the anti-globalization movement are anti-american. OK maybe some young kid who is new to politics views Amercan Policy as only Amercan policy with out looking at the other countries who freely participate in such things as the world bank and IMF. Countries invest their money into these funds freely because their officials want to become rich as well. It's not just rich Americans it's rich people from every country who want to subjugate the poor in order to make another buck. I repeat not just the united states. These Arab countries freely participate as well as European countires. They have already established a new world. A new world of Jet setters who run where the money is. They are not protesting against the same things in the Arab world. They are protesting against the west not a more humane world. The Agendas are clearly different. And so there are Jews involved with the corporate mess, their are also Christians, Catholics and Muslums and all religions involved from all over the world. To single out Jews is old propaganda which has been strung into our society and western society for thousands of years and it has to stop now. In the Arab world they still freely talk about anti-west and anti-jewsih BS all the time--Its called propaganda. And I am deeply concerned about how easily the public can be persuaded into anti-Jewish settements and antiwestern US settements. And have it tolerated in your community and many communities. There are good people and bad peole in every society every color and every religion. I'm Jewish and the only true stereotype for us is that we are still suffering post traumatic stress disorders over the fact that all of Europe turned a blind eye to the staughter of six million Jews for no reason except religion and the slaughter of millions of Jews in Arab lands for no reason except religion. And the slaughter of millions of Jews in Pre-communist and communist Russia for no reason except that they were Jews. This Country turned a blind eye as well. The United States was so anti-Jewish that they didnt get involved quick enough too save millions of peoples lives. They also turned away boats of people who went back and got gased. Grant it millions of others were killed as well but not as many. I believe Jews still live in fear else they would speak out more and educate themselves and their friends about the atrocities done to their relatives. The Murder, Experiments, Rapes, Torture. Its so horrible they dont even want to talk about it. Well, it's time to talk about it especially if you are standing in line for a humanitarian cause with people who would cheer in the streets if you were dead. They have in the past not so long ago either like yesterday if you know what I mean. Jews are not allowed to practice their religion freely in any other country except Israel. The United States is a Christian Society, Europe is a Christian society The Arab world is a mostly Muslum society. So why cant the Jews have a State where they can openingly everywhere be Jewish with out being looked at weird because they have to be home by sun down on friday and have to live a more anti-technology life from sunset on friday to Sundown on Saturday ect. A place where Jews can celebrate the new year in september during the harvest season and practice sukot---Jews have a harvest calendar which corresponds with the seasons and farming. This country does not have a harvest calendar in Israel a Jew can experience her/his religion on a daily bases and I dont mean orthodox or hassidic their are many other more earthy aspects to Judaism which are alive in Israel. Where else can you go live on a Kibbutz and experience communal life and work with the land and still contribute to society. You are not an outsider like in the United States or other countries which have communes. Jews are a minority in this country but many of them are heavily involved in humanitarian projects and earth save projects because it is taught in our religion to respect the planet not to destroy it and to fight for justice because we were enslaved, brutalized, vandalized, attacked and completely wiped out in certain areas for centuries. This does not mean to fight for justice for people who will turn around and enslave us and steal from us and kill us. For you Jews out their and non-Jews why dont you go talk to holocaust survivors and surviviors from the Muslum genocides against the Jews and you will find out the facts. It's in their eyes it's tatooed on their bodies. The survivors of the Bolshevik and Communist are all dead now and they were so shamed they barely ever spoke to their children about it. I ask my grandmother all the time and all she knows is that her family moved here because of anti-Jewish progroms which came from Russia and Poland who would burn their villages and kill innocent people based on the fact that they were Jews. So they moved here and a few years later no more letters came from their family members they left behind because they were murdred. During the Holocaust the same thing happened all of a sudden their were no more leters.

In the Muslum world they did the same thing. So what makes you think that these people are so innocent. I have met many Arabs who are half Jewish but are afraid to practice Judaism in their Arab homeland. For centuries Jews were uprooted so why shouldnt they live in the only area through history they have considered their homeland but were not allowed to live. Israel did not have a very large population before Jews started moveing their but their were Jews living there and in surrounding areas--the ones who survived. Many Arabs started moveing into the area in order to find work which the Jews created in Israel. These Arabs did not live their before. This is a proven fact. I pray everday that anti-Israel people come to realize that first it is not Israelis fault that the US was bombed--that we were bombed and second the Arab world has always been hostile towards Jews and now wants to plead with the so called left for help in establishing a state in Israel a state which for decades the inhabitants have been planning how to destroy Israel and bomb it's people. Many Palestinains are living among terrorist who kill innoccent peoples lives. They have been brainwashed. And they want all of Israel. Israel is not a very large country. It's a very small country. Why does a nomadic people want Israel so bad? Just look at history it explains everything. I pray that non-Jews realize the prejudices and the Jews who are in denial of the atrocities which have happened to their families come to grips with the reality of the world. This is not that we have to agree with Israeli policy all the time but this is differnt than siding with a people who have declared us the enemy. I am an American and maybe I am not happy and maybe I am deeply disturbed by our governments policies but that does not make our country evil. Maybe we have been badly brutalized by our own governments propaganda to keep us in check and we have to learn as much as we can from the facts and stand up and say we are not going to live or participate in hate and the destruction of innocent peoples lives.
