I need to make a clear distinction before I proceed. I am addressing Zionism, not Judaism. My viewpoint comes not from a pro-Palestine, pro-Muslim, anti-Israel, anti-Jewish standpoint, but from the side of justice. My thoughts in this piece are not driven by politics, race or religion but let us instead get to the heart of the matter: what we’re seeing everyday in Gaza is unjust, it is clearly genocide and what needs to be changed is the mindset of those who are blind to these atrocities, by appealing to their consciences.
During the last 21 days I’ve been working feverishly to share the reality of what’s been happening to innocent people living and dying in Gaza. I’ve quoted death tolls and numbers in previous articles and on countless tweets, Facebook groups and other social media outlets, but now is the time to get to the nuts and bolts of what’s happening and, more importantly, why it’s happening.
The content of this video is all the evidence we need to vindicate our beliefs and temper our resolve to continue fighting.
Help us to oppose this hate-speech. It doesn’t represent the good people of Israel, good people who want peace on all sides. Thousands have already publicly condemned their government’s actions. I am sure Michael Ben-Ari and those involved don’t speak for YOU and it is not what YOU want, but for those whose beliefs it favours, we must urge them to look not only at current events in Gaza but also observe closely the actions of the Zionist government whose plan of extermination is evident.
I’m appalled and disgusted by what this video contains and the calls for the extermination of the Palestinian people are utterly reprehensible, as is the mob mentality and fanaticism of the throng gathered around Prime Minister elect, Michael Ben-Ari, who said:
“Good evening, Good Jews and to you all, leftist traitors.
We now demand: Let the army destroy. Let the army exterminate!”
“Let’s not confuse: NO INNOCENTS IN GAZA”
“No negotiations anymore, no agreements, we force them to kneel and beat them.”
“ERADICATE GAZA! ERADICATE GAZA!”
“What? Only 15 killed? We want 15 plus 2000 bodies. We want all Gaza in graves.”
“Security means to annihilate Gaza. Yes, eradicate Gaza, ERADICATE GAZA!”
“People of Israel are alive.”
If you still believe that Israel is the victim in this, you are wrong. If you still feel that Israel’s intention is only to remove Hamas, you are wrong. Let’s be clear, the Zionists seek the complete eradication of Gaza and its inhabitants – you have it here, straight from the horse’s mouth.
If you feel as so many of us feel and wish to help, please share this video with as many people as you can. Spread it far and wide, post it on as many local, national and global news sites, twitter feeds, Facebook groups, Reddit pages and personal websites as possible.
If we can show the world how ugly the Zionist plan is we have a strong chance of stopping them by turning those on the fence in the direction of justice. In doing so we can destabilise Benjamin Netenyahu’s position and weaken a regime hell-bent on bloodshed, but more importantly bring about peace on both sides.
We all want peace and peaceful means are the best way of achieving our aims. We have the energy and the numbers to make vital changes, so please, take a few moments of your day to share this and help save the lives of the innocent people of Palestine and Israeli soldiers who have been made to believe that what they’re doing is just, despite many now starting to question it.
