Today, Saturday 30th March is celebrated by the Palestinians and all who support them in their demand to return to their homes.
This has been marked since 1947 and last year there were peaceful protests every Friday.
Unfortunately, they have been shot at and are under siege with the army seizing people as well as people being arrested for social media posts as well as bombing raids destroying at least 500 homes.
Where else in the world would this be tolerated?
No humanitarian intervention for the Palestinians.
More and more brutality faces these brave people.
However, more and more around the world are realizing the reality of the situation.
Were they really threatening grown men in full battle gear that felt so threatened by these children, disabled people and women that they had no alternative but to shoot them to defend themselves?
The most moral army in the world???
I seem to remember a news anchor in Israel stating that parents sent their children to the army and they came back ‘animals’.
That is the price of occupation.
Aided, and abetted and financed by freedom loving Americans.
Who have nothing better to spend their hard earned tax dollars on.
Just compare the maps showing the amount of Palestinian land shrinkage since 1948.
Much of it has been seized for the numerous checkpoints and the illegal wall cutting communities in half and separating farmers from their land.
The illegal settlements has also eaten up huge amounts.
Also apartheid roads. Arabs are not allowed to use.
Only 15% of ancestral Palestinian land is still owned by Palestinians.
Let that sink in.
Then remember that Americans are funding this ethnic cleansing.
This murder shocked the nation.
Also the way it was handled.
Now the truth is finally surfacing.
As it does.
Very sad Jill paid the price for trying to save children and stop this appalling child abuse.
