Just got my copy of “Recovering Nonviolent History. I instantly turned to the chapter about Palestine and one of the first things the chapter pointed out was how Palestinian women were at the forefront of the nonviolent struggle against Zionism. 
Between December 1987 and March 1988 Palestinian women held more than 100 demonstrations against the Israeli occupation.

How ludicrous is the arrest of Palestinian Zahda Suheib over a Facebook comment? They may have to arrest a few thousand more at least for much more damning comments than “go to hell”! More importantly, this fascism is akin to Egypt’s Sisi’s censorship policies today. I guess over their various meetings their censorship modus operandi became unified!

Has anyone else noticed that Israel’s narrative is morally perfect? Have not thought about it huh? Do not worry about that I can give you a quick run down: 

After struggling for two thousand years in exile the Jewish people finally returning to their homeland to find a state of their own. Israel extends its hand to the Arab people in Palestine but they rebuffed the Jewish people by deciding to leave the new state. Israel begs them not to go but to stay and live peacefully with the Jewish people but no the Arabs choose to leave. This then is followed by a massive invasion by several Arab armies that the new state miraculously defeats just like David defeated Goliath. Thus absolving Israel of 1948 which includes the creation of the Palestinian refugee crisis. 

This narrative has continued to this today. Take the recent events that have unfolded in Gaza. Israel did not want to bomb Gaza but it had to respond to Hamas’s madness. Israel did not want to kill civilians but Hamas hides behind them. Israel wanted a ceasefire but Hamas refused. Israel was saddened by the suffering of Gaza and so it decided on a humanitarian truce. 

This story is very romantic and people can not help but want to believe it and many do.However, it is only a pretty story and nothing more..!!

In 1949 Israel introduced the “Heroine Mother” award. It was awarded to women who had given birth to ten children. Ten years later in 1959 the award was discontinued when Israel realized that most of the women claiming the award were Palestinian and not Jewish…!!

The American Media needs to learn that it can not take Israeli statements as fact. We need to start with the observable facts and go from there.!

Studies show that US news is extremely Israeli-centric. The main bureaus for CNN, AP,Time, etc. are located in Israel and are often staffed by Israelis. The son of the NY Timesbureau chief is in the Israeli army; "pundit" Jeffrey Goldberg served in the Israeli military;Wolf Blitzer worked for the Israel lobby, and numerous other journalists in the region have personal family ties to the Israeli military.

"The Palestinian people, and Gazans in particular, have been living an unending massacre since 1948. We can no longer negotiate about improving the conditions of oppression; it is either the full menu of rights, or nothing. And that means the end of occupation, apartheid and colonialism. PERIOD!"
