Why is Palestine Not One of the Headline Stories on the Homepage of Indymedia?
The main issue of today and everyday until it is resolved in a just manner, is the Palestine-Israel conflict, yet why does not Indymedia see fit to keep it on the homepage as a highlighted story? Could it be than there is a Zionist agenda at Indymedia?
Most of the people who flock to Indymedia want to express their alternative views, their outrage at fat, pig capitalists, the abuse of the environment, the poor homeless, the proposed war on Iraq, and so on.
Yet, the biggest story of all, the Palestine -Israel conflict gets relegated to the "latest news" and gets bumped off after a few hours, until some other pro-justice for Palestinians activists gets the urge to publish a story. If they are too critical of Israel, the story gets lost fast and buried deep down, almost impossible to retrieve.
Could it be that closet Zionists are "guarding the gate"? Could it be that many who are so-called peace activists have a blind spot when it comes to racist, apartheid Israel, whose aggression and oppression of the Palestinian people, is at the epicenter of world unrest, pitting the Western world unnecessarily against the Eastern world? All for a Jewish supremacist state?
The Israeli Occupation is the longest military occupation in modern history, and the only remaining colonialist.
Israel constantly tries to pass itself off as a democracy so that US citizens won't rise up in protest over the billions of dollars lavished on Israel in these tight times in particular, but it's obvious that it is a racist, apartheid theocracy.
Zionist racist Jews simply cannot get past themselves when it comes to equal rights, liberty and justice for all in Palestine-Israel. They are so stuck on their notion of a Jewish supremacist state, it's unbelievable. They will come up with any argument no matter how foolish, ridiculous and obviously racist it sounds, and think that it's OK, because they think that Jew's must have the "security " of their own ethno-centric Jewish state, even if it's against all American ideals of freedom, liberty and justice for all regardless of religion, race or sex. And at the same time, with a straight face, they still try to pretend that Israel is a democracy just like the US. Just how stupid do they think we are?
It's time to stop holding Zionists' hands simply because they went through the Holocaust and have been persecuted. Two wrongs don't make a right, and on top of that many peoples have been persecuted throughout time and it's time to stop it NOW in Palestine-Israel.
Palestine is STILL the issue, and don't let anyone try to tell you it's not.
If Palestine-Israel was transformed into a true democracy much how South Africa was transformed into a true democracy, the so-called war on terrorism would be unnecessary, and so would spin-off wars like the bogus proposed war on Iraq. It all stems from the Palestine-Israel conflict, of that I have NO DOUBT.
We need to face the blatant racism and unjust oppression that Israel is perpetrating against the Palestinians and stop it. The US must stop all aid to Israel, even boycott and place sanctions on Israel until it cooperates with transforming into a true, secular democracy with the right of return of all 5 million Palestinian refugees to their ancestral homeland, as is their right according to UN Resolutions, interenational law and world opinion.
Pandora's Box has been opened, and the unjust war against the Palestinians by racist, anti-democratic, apartheid Israel is not going to go back into the box. We must deal with it finally in a humane manner consistent with our American values.
