Are you being serious about Israel being the underdog?
An occupation force that is armed to the teeth with the latest in weaponry from the the most powerful country in the world and is not afraid to use it
on the civilian population. Against the most impoverished and repressed country in the world that fights back with stones & rocks. Where the walls of
children's schools are peppered with Israelis bullet holes, and students lived in constant fear from Israelis sniper fire from the observation
A country that is being starved of every bit of essential services and supplies by the Israelis and 79% of the population live in poverty. A
population that is subjected to daily indignities at the many checkpoints that are set up to inflict maximum hardship and inconvenience. An effective
form of collective punishment.
A country that is subjected to illegal land grabs by the settlers, who harassed and beat up Palestinian farmers with clubs to drive them off their
land. A country that is pock marked with illegal settlements that is transforming the place to resemble more like a swiss cheese.
A country that has a wall built that cuts deep into Palestinian territory, further restricting whatever freedom of movement that is left for ordinary
Palestinians. (Remember, there was such furore when the Berlin Wall was built)
When they attempt to fight back, they are branded terrorists instead of freedom fighters. (By the same definition, wouldn't George Washington be
called a terrorist?) For a country like America that lectures to other countries on human rights and at the same time acting with full complicity with
Israel in committing such atrocity, is beyond comprehension.
The last time an occupation force inflicted such inhumane and cruel treatment was the Nazis to the Jews. It is not surprising that the Jews that are
most horrified at what is happening to the Palestinians are the Holocaust survivors.
