Having come from a once very proud, and Jewish family, I have to say that I have looked at my ancestors actions, each day with more and more disgust.
It is importat that I stress, however, that I have not considered myself Jewish, since I was old enough to realise the situation in Israel. Palestine
is under an occupation
-- and for what? There is no other way to describe it.
I have to say that reading this article has really opened my eyes on the Iranian issue.
Since all this propoganda on both sides has been spewing from Iran/The US, i have constantly thought -- something isn't right here.
I thought, how can this man, reasonably beleive that rest of the world won't find him crazy when, on one hand he is calling for the 'destruction of
Israel' and on the other claiming his country's nuclear ambitions are peaceful.
Something with that just never sat right with me. Having read this, I can see why. This interview certainly potrays him in a very different light.
Perhaps not the most sane of people, but at least in a seemingly inteligent light. He seems elequent, and informed.
How much propoganda has there really been about this man, and his country's ambitions? Personally, as I tried to look on the whole situation
objectively, I could always see why Iran, would perhaps want
nuclear weapons. I didn't agree with the ambitions, but I could at least
understand in part, a possible motivation behind them.
He does bring up some VERY good points. I'm not sure if everything that he stated was absolutely correct, but if fact, and many european country's
are imprisoning people who question the holocaust, or seek to personally find evidence for it, then I beleive there is an obvious hijack here by
Zionism. I beleive ALL historical events should be evalutated, and re-evaluated -- continually.
Another good point he makes, is why the Palestinian are paying the price for what the Germans did? I understand that much of Israel's land was given
to it by the UN, and were formerly English provinces, but it is hard to deny that the Palestinian people are not being pushed from THEIR homeland,
having THEIR homes destroyed, and being imprisoned in mini-cities.
Just look at this disgrace--
What happened to progress? [To quote my favourite song, "Did it all get real? I guess it's real enough, they got, refrigerators full of blood,
another century spent pointing guns -- at anything that moves."]
From Wiki Article: Israeli West Bank Seperation Wall
Where Israel lies today, the free land of Palestine once stood. Do two wrongs, really make a right?
What is Palestine today? It is not even recognised by the United States.
Zionism IS real, and many Jew's are totally against it, though of course many are for it. Zionism is political, IT has hijacked Judaism, not the
other way around.
The Israel flag of today, was once The Zionist Flag.
Also, on another discussion thread --
The Independent (Source)
Ehud Olmert, the Israeli Prime Minister, expressed "deep regret" for army operations that have killed 14 Palestinian civilians in Gaza in just nine
days but said the lives of Israeli citizens threatened by Qassam attacks were "even more important".
Already in discussion here (in the somewhat badly named thread):
Do you think comments like this, only add further support for Iran (and Palestine)?
