I am so disgusted by the treatment of Palestinians by airport security at Ben Gurion.
Is this account a lie? Some Jewish activists claim that Mondoweiss cannot be trusted. That seems to be the typical response to any reports of the crimes of their Israeli government. Always back to their “homeland” story. There is NO homeland story that justifies the mistreatment of the Palestinians by the Jews. No wonder Netanjahu is despised the world over. Israel brings judgment upon itself. And then blames their fear-based tactics on everyone that is out to get them. To Netanjahu: Quit pissing-off the world and you won’t need to fear being attacked.
I am NOT attacking the Jews. Mondoweiss is not attacking the Jews. We are disgusted by your government’s continual efforts to persecute non-Jews, especially Palestinians. Grow up and take responsibility for your actions and unsavory beliefs that you “deserve” to own the Middle-East.
Make peace and you will survive and prosper. Continue your deplorable ethnic cleansing practices and you will most likely be destroyed by a world that finally says “enough” in a unified voice. May God open your eyes so that you can “see” the harrassment and atrocities for what they are.
The Jewish people are 15 million people in the world. This is 1 in 500 people. You should learn to live at peace with the rest of the world. What if the Swedish people decided to take back Norway, their “homeland”? Not likely since they have learned the way of peace. Ask them to help you understand how to become peaceful without relying on super allies like the US.
That said, Mondoweiss and any others that you might label “anti-whatever”, do not hate the Jews. We do not hate Jews, Muslims, Catholics, Protestants, Republicans or Democrats or anyone! What we DO hate is religious or political extremism that results in injury and pain to any person or people that is out of favor with the oppressive regime of a non-world-power, or a world-power. Israel is not the only oppressor in the world of course.
Oppression of those deemed to be of “weaker or inferior class” is world-wide. It must stop or the world will stop and then restart painfully. ISRAEL – be a world leader in peace! The majority of the world’s Jews are not militant “Zionists”. As always, it is the extreme minority that throws the world into chaos and suffering. Around the world, extreme Christians, Jews, Muslims, Catholics, etc. are bringing millions to their knees in pain.
Who will bring peace and begin the end to harassment of Palestinian travelers and the end to torture and killing of innocent people around the world?
May love, light and peace prevail soon!
