Palestine, Now or Never

Palestine is people, culture and nation that cannot be denied nor oppressed by any force, no matter how powerful it claims to be – more you oppress the people, more they will rise with determination, foresight and power to seek freedom from foreign occupation and slavery of the few.

“The UN vote is expected to occur on September 20. It is too much to hope that America will do what it knows is the right thing and vote “yes” or be an honest broker and abstain. The best we can hope for is that the United States and Israel are part of a very small minority voting “no.” That kind of vote will strengthen the Palestinians and perhaps frighten Netanyahu into negotiating in good faith. But even if not, the UN will have stated that the Palestinians are people, too; people with rights, including the right to full sovereignty in the West Bank, Gaza, and East Jerusalem. At that point, the writing will be on the wall. The occupation is ending, hopefully before Netanyahu does too much more damage … to Israel.” (M J Rosenberg: “The Disaster Known as Netanyahu” 9.2.2011)
