Apparently its ‘anti-Semitic’ to compare Israel to Nazi Germany and say this state has no right to exist. Bullshit. It’s an act of anti-Arab racism to forbid comparing these racist murders to the actions of Nazi Germany.
What those who say this mean is that Jewish life is more important than Arab life. Which is exactly what motivated the foul murder of this woman and many others.
The inhabitants of Gaza are mainly people whose families were terrorised and ethnically cleansed from so-called Israel proper in 1947-49. Their homes were stolen 70 years ago; their homeland was occupied then. They are marching and protesting within the open air death camp, Gaza, that they are forcibly confined to.
It is indeed a death camp, Israel has cut off water and electricity to Gaza civilians and the man-made “humanitarian crisis” there is among the worst in the world. Malnutrition is rife, and there are enormous numbers of young people there who are traumatised by Israeli bombings and strafeing of the people there, which has been happening for decades.
As well as the killings of civil rights marchers, 13,000 have been injured, huge numbers shot with dum-dum bullets which are illegal and designed not just to wound, but to cripple, blowing enormous holes in bodies and legs. These are monstrous crimes quite comparable with those of the Nazis, and as far as I am concerned those who try to forbid such comparisons are worse than holocaust deniers. After all, holocaust deniers are in no position to force their views on others, but that is what the totalitarian, pro-Israel and in reality pro-genocide racist wing of the Labour Party are trying to do.
Gaza was occupied 50 years ago, but the homes of many of its inmates were occupied 70 years ago. There is no moral difference between ethnic cleansing 70 years ago and occupation 50 years ago. The two-state solution is a racist lie; all Israel is occupied territory. Indeed logically anyone who supports a two state solution based on the 1967 borders must support the Israeli state against today‘s Gaza protesters, who are challenging their ethnic cleansing in 1947-9, not just the 1967 occupation of Gaza.
