Palestine National Security Forces
"It would be my greatest sadness to see Zionists do to Palestinian Arabs much of what the Nazis did to the Jews." - Albert Einstein
"We know too well that our freedom is incomplete without the freedom of the Palestinians." - Nelson Mandela
"You can call me what you want, but I cannot act like nothing is going on." - Kent Allen Halliburton
So, here is what the Palestinians are faced with. A foreign international governing body, the United Nations, of which they were not a part, voted, in 1947, to arbitrarily partition their country. Further, the United Nations then handed half of the country over to European immigrants, next to none of whom knew the local language, Arabic, understood the local customs, or had ever even set foot in Palestine in their entire lifetimes. Then, the United Nations, backed by the United States and Great Britain, backed these foreign settlers with military might, and assisted them in the formation of a national government that did not involve the Palestinian people. This, however, was not the end of the situation for the Palestinians. Not only had a foreign power invaded their country and set up a foreign backed government, they now supported the expulsion of the local population from those towns and villages that were within the arbitrarily set boundaries established by those foreign powers, and this was done with the force of tanks, bombs, and guns. Those Palestinians that were not killed, either went into exile or were forced to settled in Gaza, the Golan Heights, or the West Bank. Since then, most of settlements in the Golan Heights and the West Bank have eliminated. Further, since 1948, nearly five and half million Palestinians have lost their lives and another seven million have been forced to abandon their homeland for destinations all over the world. Worse, the body count and refugee lists are still growing. How is this not an international human rights crisis?
The very simple and quick answer is that the powers that be do not want it to be considered a human rights issue, so it isn't. The next question, then, is why is that? Let us take a stroll down history lane. In the middle of 1942, Adolf Hitler's Afrika Corps was on a dead run across North Africa. They were headed for the oil fields of the Middle East. In the north, they were trying to reach the oil of the Caspian Sea region. In Africa, Great Britain and the United States halted his advance. In the north, it was the Russians who did the job. Post World War II, a world hungry for oil looked upon the Middle East with greedy eyes. The now, Western Powers, decided to cooperate, but they needed an ally in the region. Hah! No one in this region was going to willingly help their former colonial masters! So, the Western Powers, with the United States and Great Britain leading the way, latched onto the Zionist Movement, and helped set up the State of Israel, which they, then, gave their full military and political backing. Before World War II, the governments the United States and the majority of the European nations did not give a damn about Jews or a State of Israel. They did not care until they needed it to help them get natural resources. Essentially, Israel has been nothing more than a tool of the Western economic powers. It serves as a buffer state to ensure that Western economic and military interests have a fall back point, just in case things get hairy elsewhere in the Middle East. Worse, it is the Palestinians that have had to suffer the consequences. Who, among us, would not be ready to go the same extremes, as have the Palestinians, if we were subjected to the same conditions with which they have had not contend for, now, nearly seventy years?
So, considering the number of Palestinians that have lost their lives since 1948 and the outright theft of land that took place, this should be a serious international human rights issue! There is another reason, aside from the powers that be and oil arguments, why it is not, though. The arrow points straight at politics and propaganda. For the past, nearly, seventy years, anyone who has spoken out against the atrocities that have been committed against the Palestinians, has been labeled anti-Semitic, anti-Israel, or even a Holocaust denier or Conspiracy Theorist. For many years that has been enough for people to keep silent. Well, not so much anymore. First of all, lets dissolve the completely backwards assumption that calling out Israel for their actions in Palestine is Anti-Semitic. First, most of the Jews that suffered in the Holocaust, were European Jews, which means that their Semitic blood was actually drastically diluted. Studies have shown that only about ten percent of all European Jews were actual full blooded Semites. This basically just means most Jewish families mixed in with populations that they did business with, who were not Semitic. Second, the Palestinians are Arabs, and the Arabs are Semites just like the Jews, or Hebrews, as they originally called themselves. Further, most of the Jews presently in Israel come from these mixed families whose Semitic blood is drastically diluted, where as, the Palestinians are still living in their ancestral homeland. They are the true Semites in this situation. Who are the ones that are being truly anti-Semitic? That would be the Israelis. Look at the photos below. Which of these two men is actually a full blooded Semite from Palestine?
If this makes a person anti-Israel that is a fair assessment, but that is not grounds to call them a Holocaust Denier or Conspiracy Theorist. It is a very distinct reality that the National Socialist German Workers Party, otherwise known as the Nazis, under the leadership of Adolf Hitler, supervised the forced labor, starvation, and gruesome deaths of over six million European Jews. It is also known that the Jews were accompanied by the Roma, anyone of Slavic ancestry, homosexuals, the mentally and physically disabled, the elderly, and many more. These people were funneled through over seventy facilities across Europe, the most notoriously famous facility being Auschwitz-Birkenau, where they were forced to endure conditions that most people could not conjure up in their worst nightmares, let alone their waking hours. One's soul should cringe at the thought of the pains endured at the hands of the Nazi doctors who were conducting human experiments. This was a serious crime against humanity and anyone that tries to legitimately deny that it happened needs to dealt with harshly. Having said this, one must also very clearly state that the nearly seventy year long occupation of Palestine, by a foreign invader back by a foreign military power, has resulted in the very real deaths of over five million Palestinians and the forced exile of over seven million more of them. One must also note that the present condition of Gaza is like that of a massive outdoor prison, or Concentration Camp. The State of Israel is committing crimes against humanity on the same scale as was committed against them and their ancestors. The tragic irony in this situation is mentally painful, but it is a reality. To offer some final perspective, consider this last historical fact. Around five percent of the Palestinians that have been either killed or exiled since 1948, were religious Jews.
