Occupation and Persecution: The Sole Cause of Violence in Palestine
by Stephen Lendman
Palestinians are not knife-wielding terrorists as scurrilous Western and Israeli reports claim - disgracefully highlighted by presstitute scoundrels, ignoring decades of Palestinian suffering and ruthless occupation harshness.
Israel bears full responsibility for ongoing violence, planned and instigated by Netanyahu’s Arab-hating fascist regime - with full support from neocons infesting Washington, part of their longstanding scheme for world dominance by brute force and genocidal elimination of opposition.
Unrestrained state terror is official US and Israeli policy. The only way to stop daily violence and persecution in Palestine is by ending occupation and effectively challenging US imperial lawlessness.
Washington arms and funds Israel’s killing machine. America is a nation of morons, most people entirely out-of-touch with vital homeland and geopolitical events affecting their lives, well-being and futures.
Public indifference and ignorance lets neocons in Washington get away with mass murder and much more. Daily disseminated propaganda portrays despots running America and Israel as democrats.
Palestinian victims are held responsible for their crimes. It’s all their fault, claim official reports and supportive media.
New York Times misinformation is typical of what Western and Israeli media report. “Israel has every right to defend its citizens, and it should,” wrote Times editors - a disgraceful example of turning truth on its head.
State terrorism is ignored. Serial killing is called victimization. Longstanding persecuted Palestinians are criminalized for their own misery, over which they have no control, nor is any outside aid forthcoming to help them.
They’re entirely on their own. No ruling authority represents them. Israeli-installed puppets in Ramallah are their enemy. So is the entire Western world and most Arab states, despotic regimes supporting US imperial lawlessness, cozying up to Israel quietly, terrorizing their own people and others, ruling by brute force.
Big Lies dominate daily headlines. Close Netanyahu advisor/Israeli ambassador to Washington Ron Dermer absurdly claims settlements (on stolen Palestinian land) have nothing to do with ongoing violence.
“When it comes to the Middle East, you find very smart people believing in very foolish things,” he said. “There are some people who believe that these attacks are happening because of the territories that Israel captured in the Six-Day War or because of the peace process.”
“The match was not the settlements or the lack of a peace process…(T)he idea that renewing the peace process or withdrawing from the territories will somehow stop terror is a fiction.”
Fact: Majority Palestinians lived peacefully with minority Jews in Palestine for generations - until Balfour changed everything nearly 100 years ago, while WW I raged.
Fact: No peace process exists - not earlier, not now, not ever because Israel categorically rejects it. Violence and instability serve its agenda - used to misportray Palestinians as Jew-hating terrorists.
Fact: Illegal settlements on stolen Palestinian land along with decades of occupation harshness justifiably enrage Palestinians to resist. International law affirms their right to wage a heroic struggle for freedom - what people everywhere deserve.
Dermer blames Israel’s worst crimes on Palestinians - the Big Lie about “decades of incitement by (their) leaders against Israel…poisoning an entire generation to hate Israel and hate Jews…A generation of Palestinians have (sic) grown up in a society that glorifies the murder of Jews.”
What better example of blaming victims for state-sponsored terrorism - endlessly repeated. Most people never hear hard truths, instead are willfully and maliciously lied to, by Western and Israeli officials as well as media scoundrels, a complicit lying machine suppressing what everyone needs to know.
On Saturday, Israel’s defense minister Moshe Ya’alon (a notorious racist) said “(t)he fight against terrorism requires determination, patience and judgment.”
“IDF forces, Israel Police and the Shin Bet security service have made every effort to thwart and prevent terrorist attacks. The State of Israel is employing a heavy hand against the terrorists and their dispatchers, whether they are associated with groups or (acting) as individuals.”
Translation: Israel reserves the right to mass murder Palestinians with impunity, including waging wars of aggression at its discretion. Jewish rights alone matter. State terrorism is considered self-defense.
US Joint Chiefs of Staff General “fighting Joe” Dunford visited Israel on Saturday. He met with senior regime officials and IDF commanders. His purpose: affirming Washington’s full support for Israeli state terror, as well as discussing possible increased US military aid - on top of billions of dollars annually for its killing machine.
He’s visiting other US regional allies, discussing ways to counter Russian intervention against ISIS and other terrorist groups in Syria.
On Friday, Obama showed his one-sided support for Israel - disgracefully saying it has the “right maintain basic law and order and protect its citizens from knife attacks and violence on the streets,” ignoring daily Israeli mass murder and brutality.
New York mayor Bill de Blasio arrived in Israel on Saturday - expressing solidarity with its killing machine.
Palestine is a free-fire war zone, heavily armed soldiers and police murdering defenseless Palestinians in cold blood - each incident claimed to be in self-defense against a knife-wielding terrorist.
The same excuse used every time to justify over 40 killings (targeting victimized men, women, youths and children) is prima facie proof of a Big Lie - using a few instances of Palestinians either stabbing or attempting to stab Israelis as justification for unrestrained lethal shootings, most often killing innocent victims of state-sponsored racist hatred.
Truth is systematically turned on its head. Victims are called perpetrators, terrorists. State-sponsored murderers are considered public defenders, heroes.
Western and Israeli media consistently report official Big Lies, suppressing hard truths everyone needs to know. Portraying Palestinians as knife-wielding terrorists and Israeli murderers as heroes is one of the most despicable mischaracterizations about life in Occupied Palestine.
