American, totally disillusioned with the political system. I have never understood why Jews from Europe or anywhere, had the moral 'right' to go settle in Palestine against the wishes of its inhabitants. Yes the Nazi holocaust was terrible, but the Palestinians did not do it; why were they forced to pay for Europe's antisemitism? It was and is a terrible injustice. To me, it was purely white racism and colonialism, which said, 'We want the land, so we will take it.' The fact that the land was already occupied and being used was irrelevant to the colonizers. Who was it that said, "History is written by the victors?" I am grateful that Mondoweiss and others are beginning to write a new history about Zionism, Israel, and the Palestinian people.
