I wrote this article almost three years ago now. When I wrote it, I was still diving down the rabbit hole of truth. Indeed, I still am, but I do not have a hatred of Israel, like I did when I wrote it. I’ll explain after you read this article. – Paul Townsend 12/17/14
Today marks the 64th anniversary of Israel as a nation state. Many media organizations will glorify this and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that “For many around the world, Israel remains a beacon of hope and an inspiring example”.
For many though, it is a day of mourning, a loss of liberty and freedom, of a homeland and the dream of living independently. For the Palestinians, it is yet another year marked by savage occupation.
We have been led to believe that Israel is a source of goodness and hope in the world, yet the truth is bloody and brutal.
Israel and the occupation of Palestine:
Many argue that the Jews should have a homeland, and while I don’t disagree with that, I do not believe that it should be on Palestinian territory. These people have been displaced and terrorized for 64 years now. They have been shot at, bombed, and their lands have been taken from them.
Many adults are killed each year in what is left of Palestinian territory, and along with them, many children are killed each year also.
Many claim that Israel is America’s greatest ally, and yet we send millions of dollars to Israel every day, while they send PR groups to America to control the media and even our politicians. Zionist controlled Israel is in fact Americas biggest enemy. Imagine if the Zionist controlled media continues to guide us to war with Iran:
I do not hate Jews, I am not anti-Semitic. I believe our true enemy in the world today is Zionism. The Zionists are the people behind the current misery in the world. I believe that the Palestinians should have their land back, or at least a sizable amount of it. If the UN can mandate that a country be created out of thin air, then why not have it in Asia or Africa, instead of the middle east? In the early 1900’s this was a proposition from the British government, but the zionists did not want that, they wanted to take over the land of Palestine. It was a plan in the making, and it has now come into fruition. It is evil and has done nothing for peace in the region.
Many in the media twist the truth to make the Palestinians look evil, and call them ‘terror groups’, all the while it is the Israelis who are terrorizing and occupying Palestinian lands.
I cannot support Israel because it goes against my belief in human independence, freedom and dignity.
Now that you have had a chance to read this, I would like to point out that while the creation of the state of Israel by the United Nations, and the subsequent actions of the Israelis in taking over the land from the Palestinians may have in many ways been evil, the young men and women who are born there today are not. Those who are my age live in that country, and know of nothing else. They are peaceful, they are civil, they are capitalists. The Palestinians, led by Hamas, are not. Hamas is an evil extremist entity, with ties to communism. I cannot support what is left of current day Palestine under the leadership of Hamas, despite my feeling sorry for their loss of land. Their actions have been their undoing. I feel it would be far better for them to move away from the land entirely and start elsewhere, just as the Israelis did many decades ago. It is a shame, in many ways, but fighting against the Israelis has never, and will never work, and will only continue to cause death and destruction. – Paul Townsend 12/17/14
