UK paper publishes anti-Israel cartoon on Holocaust day

Land

Apparently UK’s The Sunday Times published an anti-Israel cartoon on Holocaust day. The cartoon seems to depict Israel’s prime minister, Benjamim Netanyahu, paving a wall with blood, the blood of Palestinians.

The cartoon apeared in the paper on Sunday and was drawn by cartoonist Gerald Scarfe with a caption thet read “Israeli elections- will cementing peace continue?”

European Jewish Congress President, Dr. Moshe Kantor, stated that “This cartoon would be offensive at any time of the year, but to publish it on International Holocaust Remembrance Day is sickening and expresses a deeply troubling mindset. This insensitivity demands an immediate apology from both the cartoonist and the paper’s editors.”

The Holocaust was a terrible tradegy, it was. However, currently the Jews are doing to the Palestinians what was done to them. The Palestinians are experiencing their own Holocaust, therefore I do not find this cartoon to be offensive, not one bit.

In fact, rather than being offensive, this cartoon speaks the truth. It shows how Benjamin Netanyahu is a hypocrite. His people endured pain and suffering during World War 2 and now he is inflicting the same, if not worse, pain and suffering among millions of innocent Palestinians.

The only reason anyone would find this cartoon “offensive” is because it speaks the truth and they are denying the truth.

Let us not forget that the Palestinians are suffering just as the Jews did.

We learn about the Holocaust year after year in school, yet we never learn about the present day Holocaust occuring in Palestine.

It’s time for some change.

Israeli forces shoot and kill woman near Hebron

Israeli forces have shot and killed a woman today near Hebron and injured another.

It has been reported that Israeli soldiers traveling in a civilian car opened fire at a group of people at the entrance to al-Arrub refugee camp south of Bethlehem.

Medics stated that Lubna Munir Hanash, 22, was shot in the head and died from her injuries while Suad Yusuf Jaara was shot in the hand and transported to Ahli hospital in Hebron.

According to Al-Quds newspaper Hanash was a fourth-year political science student at Al-Quds University and had been visiting her sister in Arroub camp.

Locals say that there were no clashes in the area at the time and that after the shooting Israeli soldiers prevented an ambulance from arriving at the scene for around 10 minutes.

Killing them once is not enough

Apparently, killing the Palestinians just one time is not enough for the Israelis.
By bulldozing a cemetary they are killing them twice.
Yet the world still remains silent.

Don’t stay silent about injustice.
Be the voice for the voiceless.

“Palestine belo…

“Palestine belongs to the Arabs in the same sense that England belongs to the English or France to the French. It is wrong and inhuman to impose the Jews on the Arabs… Surely it would be a crime against humanity to reduce the proud Arabs so that Palestine can be restored to the Jews partly or wholly as their national home”
