Palestine: ANC must walk the talk

2012-11-24 11:26

Israel’s recently unprovoked bombardment of Gaza and its ­constant posturing that it has a right to self-defence in response to rockets ­being fired from the Gaza Strip belies the reality that has become evident to the entire global community for many ­decades.
 
The truth is that even if no rockets are fired into Israeli cities, Israel destroys and demolishes Palestinian homes, ­uproots their age-old olive groves, ­detains Palestinians without charging them, steals further Palestinian land through initiatives by the Jewish ­National Fund and encourages its ­settlers to harass Palestinians ­living in the ­occupied territories.

Any state that creates an open-air ­prison for the civilian population living next to it, and then dumps illegal white phosphorus on to them, bombards them with sophisticated missiles from the sky and steals more of their land, cannot be serious about making peace or anything remotely related to human rights.
