They Deserve Better

 Calgary Sun 2003
Shawn Dombrowski's first task once he'd arrived in the Holy Land was to dissect the Israeli Occupation Defense Force's destruction of a Palestinian ambulance.
The Fort McMurray Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) said the Israeli troops knew the vehicle had been given clearance to enter Ramallah, but launched their grenade through its windshield anyway.
"The 40-mm grenade probably went right into the doctor's chest and blew up ... three EMTs had 80% burns over their bodies," he told a Calgary audience last spring.
The more fortunate paramedics are beaten to a pulp by the soldiers, used as human shields by them, kidnapped or delayed for hours from reaching patients, Dombrowski reported.
Palestinians on the streets during curfew, even those seeking medicine or food were shot out of hand, he added.
It's all part of Israel's illegal occupation of Palestine, where kids throwing stones at tanks are gunned down, schools are destroyed, clinics ransacked, homes plundered, tank shells lobbed into marketplaces and missiles hurled into crowds.

Despite the "road map" to peace, land continues to be confiscated to build Israeli settlements, which brings the occupation troops and roads for the exclusive use of settlers that dissects Palestinian land, making life barely liveable.
Palestinians avoiding the numerous roadblocks on their own land to go about their daily lives invite a hail of bullets.

While settlers fill their swimming pools, Palestinians go begging for water; the army destroys wells.
Countless orchards nurtured over generations have been wiped out, marketplaces bulldozed, civilian infrastructure everywhere trashed, often for no apparent security reason.
"They just want the Palestinians to give up, leave their ancestral lands and go to Jordan," says Calgarian Sky McLaughlin, an educator in Ramallah.
Since the current intifadeh broke out three years ago, nearly 13,000 Palestinians have been rendered homeless by the IDF, which has made a weapon out of food and withholding other humanitarian aid -- some of the many war crimes it commits.
The IDF is notorious for killing journalists, aid workers and targeting human rights activists. This year, activist Rachel Corrie of Olympia, Wash. was crushed to death by an IDF bulldozer as she defended a Gaza home.
The Israelis called it an accident, that the driver couldn't see the 23-year-old peaceful demonstrator, but photos tell a different story.
In an e-mail from the bombed-out squalor of Rafah camp, Corrie described the lot of a people suffering under the world's fourth most powerful military.
"No amount of reading, attendance at conferences, documentary viewing could have prepared me for the situation here -- you just can't imagine it unless you see it."
In a journey to the area four years ago, I met Israeli occupation soldiers in Hebron and Gaza disgusted with their mission.
Another witness, Bishop Desmond Tutu of South Africa compares the oppression to the apartheid of earlier experience.
These realities are rarely aired among North Americans and those who do are labelled anti-Semitic. Presumably those Israeli soldiers of conscience are anti-Semites, too.
Now, under cover of the road map, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon is building the security fence which meanders further onto Palestinian soil, cutting off farms and villages from the land and water that sustains them.
Sharon is adamant not a single settlement will be vacated -- a recipe for continued conflict -- precisely what he seeks.
Victory in the 1967 war made the long-held dreams of Israeli expansionists a reality, though the price paid for the colonization by both Israelis and Palestinians has been steep.
When the criminal scum who order the bombings are liquidated, it's impossible to summon sympathy for them.
But if your troops act like animals and treat the subjugated like animals, some of them will behave like animals.
And the current road map charade, driven by Israel bullying its feeble foe to accept whatever crumbs it deems fit to toss them, will ensure endless bloodshed.
Palestinians deserve better.

On May 15, 1948 Rothschild Jewish militias launched a massive attack on the indigenous inhabitants of Palestine to ethnically cleanse them from their land in order to establish Israel as their Jewish state. This lead more than 750,000 Palestinians to flee their homes and become displaces as refugees in the neighboring countries. Most of the families that fled did not even have time to pack their belonging or anything in fear of being massacred by the vicious Jewish militias who went through villages massacring its inhabitants who refused to leave, most of whom were poor villagers and unarmed farmers. “We must do everything to insure they never return. The old will die and the young will forget” David Ben-Gurion – First Prime Minister of Israel, 1949.

Zionist Identity Thieves

“For the Mandates Commission, Palestine had never ceased to constitute a separate entity. It was one of those territories which, under the terms of the Covenant, might be regarded as “provisionally independent”. The country was administered under an A mandate by the United Kingdom, subject to certain conditions and particularly to the condition appearing in Article 5: “The Mandatory shall be responsible for seeing that no Palestine territory shall be . . . in any way placed under the control of the Government of any foreign Power”. […] Palestine, as the mandate clearly showed, was a subject under international law. While she could not conclude international conventions, the mandatory Power, until further notice, concluded them on her behalf, in virtue of Article 19 of the mandate. The mandate, in Article 7, obliged the Mandatory to enact a nationality law, which again showed that the Palestinians formed a nation, and that Palestine was a State, though provisionally under guardianship. It was, moreover, unnecessary to labour the point; there was no doubt whatever that Palestine was a separate political entity.” DocumentLink

The Rothschild's Jews stole the identity of Judaism and then the identity of Palestine.

Rabbi Yosef Tzvi Dushinsky, Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem (1867-1948)
"We wish to express our definite opposition to a Jewish state in any part of Palestine."

Contrary to the Hasbara, Palestine has existed far longer than any Jewish kingdom or Jewish State. By denying the existence of Palestine and the Palestinian people, the longer history of Jewish existence in the region, as Palestinian Jews, is being denied.

"There can be no kind of discussion of a voluntary reconciliation between us and the Arabs.... Any native people ... view their country as their national home.... They will not voluntarily allow, not only a new master, but even a new partner.... Colonization can have only one goal. For the Palestinian Arabs this goal is inadmissible. This is in the nature of things. To change that nature is impossible . . . colonization can, therefore, continue and develop only under the protection of a force independent of the local population-an iron wall which the native population cannot break through. This is, in total, our policy towards the Arabs. To formulate it any other way would only be hypocrisy."--Vladimir Jabotinsky --(18 October 1880 – 4 August 1940), was a Revisionist Zionist leader, author,orator,and founder of the Jewish Self-Defense Organization in Odessa. With Joseph Trumpeldor he co-founded the Jewish Legion of the British army in World War I and later established several Jewish organizations, including Beitar, haTzohar and the Irgun (terrorist group).
