The Palestinian Authority faces existential crisis amid international paralysis stemming from Russia’s invasion of Ukraine

Israeli defense minister Benny Gants

The Palestinian Authority (PA) is facing a severe financial crisis, threatening its very existence. The crisis has seriously limited the PA regime’s ability to meet its financial obligations, including the payment of salaries to over 150,000 public employees and civil servants. The crisis, unprecedented in its severity,   comes at a time when much of the world has effectively lost interest in the Palestinian cause due to the emergence of other important crises and also the widespread convictions in many capitals that the Palestinian-Israeli conflict is irreconcilable. Oil-rich Arab states have also seriously slashed or stopped their financial aid to the PA.

Israel takes advantage

Predictably, Israel is taking full advantage of weak Palestinian stance and is trying to impose an insidious apartheid system in the West Bank whereby Palestinians would resign to a dwarfed entity that has limited authority, but no real sovereignty or independence. The contemplated scheme would be more or less a practical translation of President Trump’s so-called “deal of the century”  In the context of this dictated solution, Israel would annex at least half of the West Bank.  Israel’s immutable strategy has always been to arrogate as much Palestinian geography as possible with as little demography as possible.

Apartheid means apartheid, not paradise!

This week, Israeli defense minister Benny Gants has pointed out that apartheid is the only solution available to “our conflict with the Palestinians.”  Gants didn’t use the word apartheid per se but employed a euphemistic language that connotes and denotes apartheid.

Speaking to the Hebrew news site Walla on 16 April 2022, Gants said he was advocating   “two entities living side by side in peaceful coexistence,  with Israel retaining overall military control encompassing the entire territory from the River Jordan to the Mediterranean Sea.

He added that the “Palestinian areas” would enjoy geographic continuity through bridges and railways. Gants carefully ignored the fact that under such arrangements,  Israel would be able to hermetically seal the scattered Palestinian Bantustans by cutting them off from each other and shutting them off from the rest of the world, depending on the mood of just one Israeli officer.

The Israeli defense Minister blamed PA leader Mahmoud Abbas for calling Israel an apartheid state and for paying modest monthly stipends to martyrs’ families and to thousands of Palestinian prisoners languishing in Israeli jails and detention camps.

Gants is viewed by many Israeli Jews as representing the center-left in Israel. However, if he were to be evaluated according to European or international standards, the general would likely be classified as a “hard-core racist” and his ideology as fascist par excellance.

In many respects, he can be compared to the late Israeli leader Shimon Peres who succeeded in acquiring the image of a genuine peacemaker when in truth he was a nefarious war criminal responsible for killing and maiming hundreds, perhaps thousands,  of innocent men, women, and children in Palestine and Lebanon.

For those who have forgotten, Peres used to claim at every press conference that (former PA Chairman) Yasser Arafat, not Israel, was controlling 99% of Palestinians and that Israel shouldn’t be blamed for the problems facing Palestinians. But Peres wouldn’t tell his interlocutors that Palestinians, from the smallest pre-school child to the PLO Chairman were unable to travel a few kilometers from their homes without an Israeli permission. Peres, Gants, et al, actually represent the dramatis persona Of mendacity and deception. Their prevaricated discourse reveals their insincerity, racism, and criminality.

What does the PA think?

The PA leadership wouldn’t accept Gants’ remarks, at least publically,  as doing so constitutes  a definitive political suicide for Abbas and his entire regime, , given the total rejection of Gants’ remarks by the vast majority of Palestinians in Occupied Palestine and the Diaspora.

However, there are certain fears among the Palestinian political elite that Abbas, already in the twilight years of his life, might give in under the pressure of reality as well as the treasonous betrayal of the enduring Palestinian cause by such states as Bahrain, UAE, and Morocco as well as the de facto leader of Saudi Arabia, Muhammed Bin Salman.

Another factor that might force Abbas to “come to terms with reality, however bleak and gloomy it may be, is the above-mentioned chronic financial crisis facing the PA.  There is no doubt that the current crisis is the harshest and hardest ever to hit the Ramallah regime.

Rampant corruption

 The rampancy of corruption, nepotism, favoritism, and cronyism exacerbates an almost hopeless crisis that some experts are convinced can’t be resolved without overhauling the entire PA apparatus from the top of the pyramid to its base.

But such a feat would be easier talking about in seminars and in the street than dealing with its complications, ramifications, and repercussions. Besides, we must not forget that the Israeli occupation remains the mother of all problems in the PA and the occupied territories as a whole. Hence the prevailing pessimism.

Strikes and demonstrations

The Chronic PA failure to pay salaries at the end of each month or at the beginning of the new month has prompted a plethora of protests and demonstrations throughout the West Bank. Professional union members including teachers, doctors, and nurses took to the street or refused to go to work in protest against the non-payment of their salaries. 

Sources in Hebron intimated that some Insulin-dependent diabetic patients had to buy the vital life-saver from pharmacies due to a protracted strike by paramedics in public clinics. Several other public services were interrupted or came to a halt for similar reasons. The Biden administration has paid the PA some $150 million to keep it afloat. However, this is a temporary solace at best, which means that the crisis would be postponed for a few weeks or months.

Moreover, the American assistance is not an altruistic charity with no expected strings attached to it.. The Biden administration seems to have reneged on its erstwhile promise to reopen its consulate in East Jerusalem as a gesture of goodwill toward the Palestinians. expects the PA “to behave” and refrain from taking any practical steps toward joining the ICC. But even a successful joining of the ICC is not expected to achieve miracles for the Palestinians, particularly at this time of international paralysis due to the ongoing Ukrainian crisis.

Furthermore, the Palestinian cause would face even more ominous prospects should former President Donald Trump return to the White House following the next American elections,  which is not a far-fetched prognostication.

This possibility should make the PA a little hasty in its endeavor to salvage a sort of Political settlement that most experts and observers agree wouldn’t be in the Palestinians’ favor. 

Ethnic Cleansing

Israel Gaza War Turned into Genocides Against Millions of Palestinians

Published

on

Israel Gaza war

Over the last eight months, Israel Gaza war has shown the true colors of Zionists and what genocide looks like. Videos and graphics surfacing from the ground show the nightmarish reality millions of Palestinians are forced to live every day.

Mutilated bodies, lost loved ones, orphaned children, bombed shelters, and constant fear of being the next victim with no medical care, shelter, or food — are the appalling reality of Gazans.

But now, the world is waking up to the atrocities of Israel. Social media outrages and protests are asking governments to take rigid actions against war crimes. But how are these outrages shaping the future of Gaza?

All Eyes on Rafah: Social Media Outrage of Israel Gaza War

Pro-Palestinian activism has surged several times since the war began. ‘All Eyes on Rafah’ is the newest in a queue of content that has gone viral and been endorsed by millions of users on social media over the last eight months.

While the viral graphic brought Rafah and Israel’s genocide war into the limelight, the reality cannot be any more different. Unlike the clean, sequenced tent, today, Rahal is in ruin. Opposite to the clear blue skies, Rafah’s skies are grey from bombs, smoke, and debris.

Under the ruins lies many decaying bodies of innocents while Israel continues the military offense – set on eradicating Hamas.

But what enraged people about the Rafah attack was that the region was dedicated to sheltering millions of displaced Palestinians. Israel’s attack on Rafah has cut off the Gaza-Egypt corridor—leaving the war-torn region without any humanitarian aid. Palestinians also used the corridor to escape the wars and seek medical help from nearby hospitals — an option no longer available.

On Sunday, the UN agency reported that all of its 36 refuge shelters in Rafah are ”now empty’, a safe place where 1.4 million displaced Palestinians were sheltering until last month.

Since the attack, delivering aid to Gaza has become even more difficult. With IDF now in central Rafah, the humanitarian spaces are shrinking even further, leaving the leftover Gazans to wait for uncertain calamities.

But Rafah is not the only target of the IDF.

Jabalia Turned to Rubbles

Repeated air strikes in Jabalia, located in northern Gaza, have left the town in ruins. Just within 24 hours, over 50 Palestinians have lost their lives, while 400 were left grievously wounded.

In the meantime, Israel continues its genocidal operations in Rafah. The country claims to have killed 300 Hamas fighters in Rafah since the operation began in May. The IDF says it has wiped out major Gaza tunnels and left dozens of Hamas’ dens rattled in Jabalia after its three-week operations.

After the Israeli forces left Jabalia, returning to the sight of mass destruction, Gazans found their homes completely razed to the ground. Civil defense teams recorded 120 Palestinian bodies under the rubbles of bombarded budling and destroyed roads.

International Court of Justice (ICJ) Accuses Israel of Genocide

After eight months of its onslaught, burning refugee camps in humanitarian zones and claiming nearly 36,400 Palestinians’ lives, the World Court recognized Israel’s heinous war crimes as genocidal.

The court ruled by 13 votes to two and ordered Israel to “immediately halt its military offensive in Rafah.” But what did Israel do? Bombed camps and burned dozens alive in Rafah.

This triggered mass protests across the globe—Spain, France, Lebanon—and the ‘All eyes on Rafah’ movement started. International governments, including the EU, are also planning to stop Israel’s atrocities, but they are torn on how to do this.

Ireland and Spain prefer radical options like sanctions on the country and its institution. Others prefer an ultimatum, a threat to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu — stop the genocide or else face the consequences.

Amongst all this, Biden proposed a ceasefire and hostage deal proposals on Saturday.

Biden’s Israeli Proposal to End Israel Gaza War

Brought in by US President Joe Biden on Saturday, the Israeli government has proposed a new ceasefire deal, a roadmap for permanent peace in Gaza. The three-part proposal includes plans for a ceasefire, a surge in humanitarian aid, the exchange of hostages, and post-war aid for Gaza.

Phase 1 will see a see truce with:

  • 6-weeks complete ceasefire
  • exchange of Israeli hostages for Palestinian prisoners
  • partial military withdrawal from Gaza
  • 600 trucks of aid each day

In phase 2, Israel and Hamas will negotiate a permanent ceasefire. The final phase 3 includes a major reconstruction plan for destroyed Gaza with international support.

Hamas has welcomed the plan, saying it’ll consider Biden’s plan ‘positively.’ Even in the previous negotiations, Hamas has shown interest in entering a comprehensive truce agreement if Israel holds its aggression.

However, though it’s an Israel-proposed deal, the proposal creates political turmoil within the country.

Israel’s Acceptance of the Proposal Could Mean a Military Coup?

The efforts to bring any middle ground between Israel and Gaza are hitting more roadblocks as the proposal threatens the coalition government in Israel.

While many Israelis disagree with Netanyahu’s method, they want talks, and getting hostages released from Gaza should be a priority. A vast number of Zionists, however, want the country to push on and destroy Hamas, even at the cost of civilian lives. These divisions are seeping into the government and military.

The country’s top influential politicians, including Itamar Ben-Gvir (National Security Minister) and Bezalel Smotrich (Finance Minister), are against the proposal, saying “no end to the war unless Hamas is completely obliterated.”

A video also surfaced showing an Israeli soldier asking the defense minister to quit. He wants complete victory over Gaza, and if not, he threatens that 100,000 soldiers will revolt.

Uncertainty Looms as Millions are Forced to Suffer

Earlier this year also, Israel refused a hostage exchange proposal. But can the US’s pressure to accept the proposal by both size and wind down the war finally put an end to the genocide? Only time will tell.

In the meanwhile, under the cover of negotiation, Israel continues the ethnic cleansing in Gaza. On Sunday, the IDF struck 30 targets, including weapons storage facilitates. At the same time, Israel air strikes and ground combat have killed over 60 Palestinians, climbing the death toll to 36,439.

But with both ends divided and unwilling to find any common ground, millions of Gazans are left stranded in a genocidal war in which they have no say and control.

In Palestine, no peace before the slate is clean

Published

on

It seems that peace in Palestine will remain confined to the realm of wishful thinking. For the vast majority of people around the world, the racist apartheid entity known as Israel is probably the most gargantuan crime against humanity ever committed in the history of mankind.

 Israel was conceived in sin, misbegotten in evil when it was established nearly 75 years ago, remains completely evil today, and will always be irremediably evil, no matter how many people sing its praises.

The creation of Israel in Palestine may not be the most heinous genocidal act in history. But it is most certainly the biggest and most obscene theft ever. How else can any honest person describe the arrogation of an entire country by the British empire and surrendering it, as a (National home),  on a silver platter to another people ( Zionist Jews) on the ground that these people were stateless and persecuted, especially following the tragic events of the World War II.

Indelible calamity for Palestinians

Indeed, the very creation of Israel and its malignant growth into a powerful evil entity has inflicted a huge indelible calamity to every Palestinian family.

 Yes, thanks to Zionism’s triumph, thanks to overwhelming, unlimited and sustained backing by racist, anti-Islam Western powers such as UK and US, every Palestinian family had its share of the still ongoing agony,  immense suffering and misery resulting from the establishment of the evil entity, which is nothing less than a protracted, unrelenting and unceasing crime against humanity.

It is probably impossible to find a single Palestinian who has escaped the impact of the Zionist Jewish crimes, still, continues unabated.

Israel: When will the Jews say Mea Culpa?

This writer’s family, for example, was forced to dwell in a cave for 20 years, following the near extermination of my father’s family in 1953. In that fateful year, Jewish terrorists massacred his three paternal uncles, Hussein, Mahmoud and Yousef not far from the village of, al-Burj, about 30 km southwest of the town of Hebron.

The three, along with other relatives, were totally innocent shepherds, grazing their folks of sheep near the armistice line.  In addition to murdering my family, the Zionist murderers stole hundreds of sheep upon which our family depended on for living.

 Interestingly, up to this day, Israel, the so-called only democracy in the  Middle East, has not said “Mea Culpa“! let alone paid compensations for their crimes When will the Zionist Jews say a simple sorry for their unwept victims? Perhaps when kosher pigs fly!

Yes, every single Palestinian has a story to tell about what happened to his or her immediate family, relatives, neighbours and fellow villagers.

The Zionists, notoriously selfish and narcissistic, calculated that old Palestinians who experienced the holocaust-like Nakba first-hand ( the brutal, violent extirpation of an entire people from its ancestral homeland does constitute a form of genocide),  would die and the young would forget.

However, the Zionist calculations proved utterly faulty as the cause has been kept alive and living, strongly and firmly, in the hearts and minds of millions of people around the world, including in Palestine itself where close to eight million Palestinians continue to live as a thorn in the  Zionists’ side despite all their nefarious designs, plots and exploits to consign our just cause to oblivion.

There are several reasons for this exemplary resilience and steadfastness on the part of the Palestinian people, including the following:

1-The colossal Nakba, was by no means a one-time event lasting for a  few weeks or a few months, followed by peace or an end of hostility. The Palestinians actually never encountered circumstances or conditions conducive to making them or their descendants forget or overcome their pains. Indeed, ever since 1948, the collective Palestinian experience has been a sequence of atrocities, pogroms, repressive measures, mass internment and imprisonment, home -demolitions, land-grabbing, sporadic massacres,  and similar acts of persecution and oppression. This would draw a conclusion that peace in Palestine belongs to the realm of fantasy.

The main purpose of these evil measures has always been to force the Palestinians, or significant numbers of them, to leave their homeland for good. Indeed, in many instances, the Zionist authorities offered attractive sums of money to “encourage” Palestinians to emigrate to countries such as Australia and Canada. However, very few Palestinians would swallow the Zionist bait.

The unrelenting suffering and the protracted oppression and savagery kept alight the torch of resistance even to this day as most Palestinians came to realize that they were facing two main alternatives: continued resistance even at a high price, or going into oblivion and repeating the experiment of the  “American Indians” of the Middle East.

2-The second reason which enabled the Palestinians to keep their struggle alive is their strong Islamic faith. Islam encourages its followers to resist oppression and not succumb or give in to oppressors. True, Palestinian nationalism played and continues to play an important role in sustaining the resistance. However, it is amply clear that Islam is more able to provide an inexhaustible source of motivations for the increasingly religious showdown with Israel. More to the point, Palestinians feel they have a paramount religious duty to protect, defend, and liberate al-Aqsa Mosque from the claws of Zionism. Indeed, most Palestinians realize there can be no Palestine without Jerusalem and no Jerusalem without the Aqsa Mosque. Hence, their resolve to sacrifice body and soul for the liberation of  Islam’s third holiest sanctuary.

No Peace without Justice, but Justice is more than impossible

Since there can be no lasting peace in Palestine without true justice that leaves the slate thoroughly clean, it would be safe to argue that reaching a genuine peace between Muslims and Zionist Jews would be as unlikely as Satan the devil entering the Garden of Eden in the company of prophets, saints, martyrs and righteous people on the Day of Judgment.

But since Satan will go to hell rather than paradise, peace in Palestine will remain confined to the realm of wishful thinking.

And even if Zionist Jews were to reach the conclusion that enough was enough, they still would have to agree to a system of redress for the egregious injustices inflicted on their victims from the very inception of the gargantuan crime against humanity.

For justice, even a semblance of justice to materialize, the Jews of the world would have to pay the Palestinians adequate and prompt reparations for the purpose of promoting justice and redressing the horrible and still ongoing crimes against the victims and their descendants up to the 10th generation. I cannot determine the exact amount of reparations and indemnification which Jews would have to pay for the victims. But an initial amount of 30-50 trillion dollars would probably suffice for a final rapprochement. Am I undergoing day-dreaming. Definitely. That is why even invoking the possibility of a real durable peace between Palestine and Israel belongs to the realm of fantasy and wishful thinking. (end)

Israel is Hiding Crucial Demographic Facts About Palestinians

Published

on

demographic facts about the Palestinians and Palestinian demographic data

For decades, Israel has been hiding crucial demographic facts about the Palestinians West of the River Jordan (Israel proper, the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip). During this period, Successive Israeli governments consistently sought to inflate the number of Jews while deliberately belittling the number of Palestinians.  The purpose of this manifestly racist and still-ongoing policy is to portray the Palestinians as an insignificant and shrinking minority.

Palestinian demographic facts:“The Palestinian womb is overwhelming Israel”

Demographic facts and data are considered Israel’s best-guarded state secrets.

However, from time to time, Israeli officials make racist statements reflecting Israeli anxiety toward the growing Palestinian population and Palestinian demographic data and facts.

 Moreover, the toxically racist Israeli media normally resort to “Statistical manipulation” to ensure the pathologically insecure Jewish citizens that Jews are still a large and growing the majority of the population.

This week, a senior doctor at the Soroka hospital in Beir Sheva in Southern Palestine was quoted as saying that  “the Arab womb is overwhelming the Jewish public” in the country.

The doctor,  Gideon Saar, a cardiac surgeon, was recorded on video, saying the remarks during an election gathering to promote the notoriously racist former Justice minister Ayelet Shaked.

Crucial Palestinian demographic facts: Short is the robe of lying!

As we all know, mendacity has always been and continues to be Israel’s modus operandi and ultimate lifeline. Israel lies about almost everything, from how it came into being to its possession of nuclear weapons. So, we shouldn’t be surprised a bit to discover Israeli efforts to cover up crucial demographic facts in occupied Palestine.

Indeed, lying rather obscenely is simply an integral part of being Zionist.

Read Also: Is anti-Semitism essential for the survival and growth of Zionism and Jewish peoplehood?

Honesty and being Zionist are eternal oxymorons and shouldn’t be used in the same line. Israel lies as often as Israelis breathe.

Rare admission:

In 2014,  the Head of the Military Administration in the West Bank, euphemistically called the Civil Administration, made a rare admission when he pointed out that the number of Palestinians between the River Jordan and the Mediterranean exceeded the number of Jews. 

The admission has since been confirmed by many Israeli scholars, including Sergio Della Pergola, an Italian-Israeli demographer and statistician.

Some irate right-wing officials dismissed the shocking revelations demographic facts about Palestinians as “spurious and distorted.” But Della Pergola, a Hebrew University Professor, dismissed these right-wingers as “delusional.”

Three out of four Russian immigrants are “non-Jewish”

According to the Israeli media, it has been revealed by official Israeli circles that hundreds of thousands of “Jewish” immigrants from the former Soviet Union are actually “nom-Jewish” according to the so-called “Law of return.” The Ynet English website on 17 November 2002, reported that in 2020, three out of every four Russian immigrants were actually non-Jewish.

The “shocking” report came after leaders of the religious and fascist Jewish parties, which won the recent elections in Israel, expressed intention to amend the Law of Return and reopen the sensitive question of who counts as Jewish according to Jewish law or Halacha.  According to the Jerusalem Post, only 28% of Jewish immigrants from the former Soviet Union were actually Jewish. The same source reported that between 1990-2020, the percentage of truly Jewish immigrants didn’t exceed 36%. 

 

Palestinians have a clear majority

Today,  data shows that the existence of a Palestinian demographic majority west of the River Jordan (Israel and the occupied Territories) is a clarion fact that only the willfully blind refuses to see. In fact, if we deduct around 500,00-600,00 non-Jewish immigrants from the former Soviet Union from the projected Jewish population, the Palestinian majority becomes an axiomatic fact that even the most dishonest Israeli politicians wouldn’t deny.

According to Palestinian and Israeli experts, the crucial Palestinian demographic facts today exceeds the Jewish population by at least 300,000 people.

However, some hot-tempered Israeli leaders and pro-settler circles keep indulging in prevarication, statistical sophistry and outright lies to produce an otherwise rosy outlook.

Palestinian demographic facts: Apartheid to make “them” out of sight and out mind”!   

Israel, especially the so-called  “deep state,”e.g.,  the hawkish security establishment, has been using a variety of criminal tactics to neutralize the problem. These tactics include the following:

1- Denial and concealing crucial Palestinian demographic facts, classified as “top secret”  from the general public, while making the classified data available to top politicians, like the Prime Minister, the President, and Mossad Chief. Moreover, military censorship has been barring the normally-liberal Israeli media from discussing the matter or making “harmful” Revelations.

2- Maximizing systematic persecution, repression and state sponsored-terrorism against the Palestinians for the purpose of coercing them to emigrate as the Zionist gangs did in 1948, when 750,000 Palestinians were forced to leave following the perpetration by Jewish terrorists of genocidal massacres like Dir Yasin, Tantura, Dawaymeh, etc. Indeed, for decades, Israel claimed the refugees were not expelled but left voluntarily.

3- Confining as many Palestinians as possible to the smallest possible territory.

4. Refusing to grant non-Jews building licenses to construct a home in (Area C) of the West Bank, which constitutes more than 65% of the occupied territory.

5- Demolishing Palestinian homes in the contiguity of Jewish colonies or in areas coveted or slated for settlement expansion. It is estimated that Israel demolished more than 50,000 Palestinian homes in Gaza and the West Bank since 1967.

6-  Applying two sets of laws, one lenient, another harsh and draconian, to  Jews and Arabs living in the same area, even the same neighbourhood.

Yet Zionist Jews bark furiously and uncontrollably like rabid shipyard dogs whenever someone calls the racist entity apartheid? Do they want the world to celebrate with them their “exemplary egalitarianism” and the kosher savagery meted out to the helpless and virtually abandoned Palestinians whose only “crime” is their being goyem and therefore un-kosher? Is this the way Jews are supposed to pay back for Muslim protection for many centuries in the Middle East, North Africa, Turkey and many other places?

I advise doubting Jews to read “the Jew and the Cross” to realize the huge difference in the treatment Jews received under Islam and Christendom. (see The Jew and the Cross – Dagobert David Runes).

Exercising some honesty and rectitude is always beneficial and rewarding.

7- Israel has been manipulating statistical data and crucial demographic facts to give the impression that the Palestinians are not actually a nation, but a cacophonic set of sects and tribes with very little common bonds.

Thus, Israeli statisticians divided Palestinians into Muslims, Christians, Bedouins, Jerusalemites, Israeli Arab citizens, and Circassians. Samarians, etc.

This sort of statistical mutilation is not met with a reciprocal sub-categorization when dealing with the Jewish community which has far more ethnic and religious heterogeneity. For example, the Orthodox Chief Rabbinate doesn’t consider a majority of American Jews (Reform and Conservative Jews) to be bona fide Jews. Orthodox Jews, who are in control in Israel, routinely quarrel and scuffle with Reform and Conservative Jews at the Western Wall esplanade, shouting obscenities at them and calling them abusive epithets like “Goyem” (non-Jews) and “Notsrim” (Christians).   

Demographic holocaust

One might wonder how Israel would deal with its demographic dilemma in the medium and distant future. Some Israeli leaders, especially within the jingoistic religious messianic circles don’t hesitate to use far-fetched explosive terms like “demographic holocaust” to describe the Palestinian demographic advantage.

The scandalously corrupt analogy between one of the greatest tragedies in the history of mankind on the one hand,  and the survival and growth of the Palestinian people in its own ancestral homeland on the other, cheapens the holocaust and seriously corrodes international efforts to combat true, virulent anti-Semitism. It also exposes the brutal ugliness of the Zionist mindset.

Unfortunately, we Palestinians have learnt that nothing can be dismissed as unthinkable as far as the depraved Zionist mentality is concerned. Indeed, a state that shamelessly argues that Jews have an inherent right to be racist “because they are a special people” can do anything, however ghoulish and nightmarish or diabolic it may be.

That is why, the Rabbis of Gush Emunim, who represent religious Zionism, declare openly that the solution for the Palestinian problem is a combination of three measures: Transfer or collective deportation; a tight, humiliating apartheid regime; and\or a war of extermination. Frankly, I prefer to believe these evil rabbis rather than notorious pathological liars like Netanyahu, Lapid, and Biden.
