Activism

If you genuinely back the Palestinian cause, you must support the right of return

There are some Israeli movements and individuals who show support for the Palestinians, but hide the fact that they are Zionist. There are also international activists that genuinely believe in these groups and support them because they are not aware of their real intentions. These groups, such as Breaking the Silence and others, do not recognise a clear definition of the two-state solution, one that is based on several UN resolutions – starting with Resolution 194, adopted in 1948, which stipulates the Right of Return for the Palestinian refugees.

These movements are trying to distance themselves from the UN resolutions. They do not want to recognize a two-state solution based on UN resolutions, including the Right of Return. Which means they support an idea of an unjust two-state solution, where a large part of Palestine is being used for the establishment of the Occupying State, and the State of Palestine is being turned into a large prison for the Palestinians.

The other tactic of these movements that exacerbates the conflict is that when they find Palestinians or pro-Palestinian groups who seek fame, they use them, giving them the opportunity to travel and raise money using the name of the resistance. These groups are Zionists, so they have the money, power and ability to pull strings and influence western governments, who prefer to deal with the flag of a radical, hostile Zionism. Their main aim is to deepen conflict and create a state of confusion among those who genuinely support and care about the Palestinian cause.

In the broader framework, it is clear that these Zionist movements seek to portray Israel as a democratic state, making people in the West confused about who are the real groups working for freedom and justice in Palestine. This image of a democratic Israeli state serves to boost the Occupation.

The fact of the matter is that Palestine was conquered by force. The Palestinian people were forcibly expelled, thousands upon thousands were savagely murdered, and thousands were arrested and thrown in a prison cell called the State Of Palestine.

The support of these movements is a crime against justice and it does an injustice to one of the most just causes in modern times, a cause which is exploited like a cow by some people.

These people and their movements of course are the names and groups you hear of in the media all the time, the ones you always hear about while the true activists and organizations work from the heart, under the radar, without public knowledge that they even exist, let alone all the front-line work that they do and all the time and energy they volunteer from their lives!

If you are truly and genuinely supporting the Palestinian cause from your heart, and not seeking money or fame, I ask you please, do not participate in campaigns that are full of misinformation. Please do not be complicit in the Zionist manipulation.

i proudly support Palestinian right of return.

The so-called occupation is really a continuing violent, rather hideous, process of conquest, I agree,

“These groups, such as Breaking the Silence and others, do not recognise a clear definition of the two-state solution, one that is based on several UN resolutions – starting with Resolution 194, adopted in 1948, which stipulates the Right of Return for the Palestinian refugees.”

Is there somewhere we can go for the names of other organizations who are dealing in this subterfuge? Is there perhaps something in an group’s mission statement which is tell-tale?

Right of return v right of aliyah.

In th case of the former one is returning to ones home. In the latter . One is leaving one.s home to invade the home of the former.

Why the confusion.

This is an important point that many Israelis do not understand – there will never be a peace treaty without a right of return of the 8 or 9 million refugees and their descendants. The goal of BDS is the return of the refugees, nothing less. So whatever the complaints are about BDS, it behooves them to remember what the alternative looks like.
