Palestine and Israel on fire and blood

"...US State Department spokesman Ned Price said Israel has a 'legal right to self-defense.' His words sparked outrage in the Arab countries of the region. Leading commentators indicated that the United Nations has determined that Israel is illegally occupying the Palestinian territories. Therefore, the actions of the Israeli forces in Jerusalem (al-Quds) cannot be considered self-defense..."

 

Israeli groups plan further violence against Palestinians amid lynchings

"Israeli groups are planning further attacks on Palestinians residing in the occupied territories after settler mobs roamed' the streets looking for Arabs and viciously attacked them while Israeli police forces stood by and watched. 'Bring everything, knives, gasoline. Don't be scared, we are the chosen ones', one message seemingly on a signal group chat named 'The Underground Unit' with several hundred members, London-based online news outlet Middle East Eye reported.

In another message, which appeared to be posted on a Whats App group called 'Israel Alive Haifa', a forwarded message gave the location of a Palestinian march in Tel Aviv: 'Any Arabs you see - you stab. Please come equipped with flags, bats, knives, guns, brass-knuckles, wooden boards, pepper spray, anthing that would hurt them. We will restore the honor of the Jewish people,' it read..."

Watching this unfold I can only hope that the Palestinian resistance will win and institute a secular democracy instead of the current theocracy.

The sheer numbers of Palestinians is the key. If they have thousands of people rushing the Lebanese and Jordanian borders from both inside Israel and from the outside then maybe one of the border points will fall and allow tens of thousands of returnees across the border to reclaim what is rightfully theirs. The IDF is murderous but they are not large enough to fight half their citizens and keep their borders intact. If that happens then maybe Syria will decide it is a good time to take back the Golan Heights thus opening up a major threat on another front.

I know this means little now but history tells us that all occupations, except for one kind, end in failure and withdrawal even if it takes hundreds of years. No matter if it was most of the known world under the General was Alexander the Great, whose empire quickly crumbled with his death, the British empire which only a century ago ruled a quarter of the Earth, or the Spanish empire which ruled nearly all of South America and a good part of North America, etcetera. The English ruled Ireland for 750 years under the brutal Penal Laws and Protestant "Plantation" (from which the American plantation got its name) settler process which even the Protestants now believe will end within 25 years in Northern Ireland joining the Republic as the Catholics are well on the road to becoming the demograhic majority. The English ruled Scotland for 600 years and face the distinct possibility of losing it as the Scottish National Party and the Scottish Greens now have a majority and are seeking independence in a referendum. In South America, in countries such as Bolivia, where indigenous people are the majority, they have taken control of the government. 

The only exception occurs when the occupier wipes out the culture or so many of the indigenous people themselves that they have now way of recovering and gaining power nationally, as is true in Canada, the US, and a few South American and a Caribbean countries. The Israelis cannot exterminate or reduce the Palestinians to a tiny, politically insignificant minority in the region. BDS may help the formation of a Palestinian state occur faster. However, in the end the Palestinians will win their homeland. The tragedy is that that may take a very long time and an awful (in the full meaning of the word) deaths.

It's not going to stop occupying the West Bank or blockading and bombing Gaza either, so it's 50 years past time to start counting all people living under Israeli control as part of Israel's population – the apartheid-disenfranchised half – despite Israel trying to have it both ways in propaganda.

IDF Jets Launch 'Extensive Attacks' on Gaza as [Israel's] Violence Enters 2nd Week

"Israel's army said its warplanes are carrying out 'widespread' strikes across the Gaza Strip and claimed they are targeting 'terror sites' but gave no further details. Palestinian sources said there have been 66+ strikes in 30 minutes and the bombardments are particularly intense. PM Bibi Netanyahu repeatedly vowed that the airstrike campaign against Hamas will last 'as long as necessary to restore calm and quiet to Israel's citizens.'

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres warned that the 'utterly appalling' hostilities in Israel and Gaza could plunge the whole region into an 'uncontrollable crisis.'

I do not believe in a two state solution. In no known universe is the Zionist state of Israel going to allow an independent sovereign nation in Palestine that is capable of defending itself against what is happening now. The power dynamics of two states will never bring justice for Palestians.  However the regime in Israel must fall first since it is a religious based citizenship not a secular state.

How is the Israeli "regime" going to fall?

I think the only realistic chance toward peace is an agreement between Palestinian and Israeli leaders.

Read it before but it's an optimistic, possibility so here it is again:

Philip Weiss: Zionism's Endgame has Begun

https://mondoweiss.net/2021/05/zionisms-endgame-has-begun/

"Last week the Guardian newspaper in London expressed shame over one of its worst errors of judgment: That in 1917 it supported and facilitated the Balfour Declaration, the imperial document that awarded Jews the 'right' to make a homeland in Palestine. This counter-declaration was met with rage by Israel supporters.

And well it should, for it represents another blow to the legitimacy of Zionism in the west. All around us today we hear these blows falling on the central creed of Israel. The supposed right of a Jewish collective to national self-determination in a land populated by others.

The social jsutice moment that has rocked the US in the last year is crashing up against the door of apartheid Israel, which of course only gets more rightwing politically. At the JStreet conference last month, Isaac Herzog, the head of the Jewish Agency pleaded with young American Jews not to abandon their state, the Jewish state.

But that abandonment is going on before our eyes. You can't be opposed to white nationalism in the United States and support Jewish nationalism in Israel..."

 Even though they always did before. We'll see what happens when the Israeli lawn-mower is put away. If most forget all about it until the next time, then the Frankenstein monster Israel survives. If a flame has been ignited that doesn't gutter out, but burns hotter,  then indeed Zionist, apartheid Israel may have finally run out of gas for any more lawnmowing. Let us hope so. The growing disgust of seeing Canada continuing to support such a thing without taking whatever firm and urgent steps are necessary to shut it down seems unendurable. It was accomplished with the racist state of Apartheid South Africa it must be done with Apartheid Israel also.
