Occupation

Warzone sent me crazy

Posted on Updated on


Steven Green, a former American solider serving 5 life terms for raping a 14 year old Iraqi girl and killing her parents and sister admits that he thought iraqi civilians were not human. All this because of what he says crimes fuelled by experiences in iraq’s violent ‘Triangle of Death’ where two of his sergeants were gunned down.

Green said those deaths ‘messed me up real bad.’ ‘There’s not a word that would describe how much I hated these people,’ Green said. ‘I wasn’t thinking these people were humans.’

Green after the killing of his sergeants, talked frequently of wanting to kill Iraqis.

The following is an extract taken from the Daily Mail newspaper. ‘At the Iraqi home, Barker and Cortez pulled Abeer into one room, while Green held the mother, father and youngest daughter in another.

Pfc. Jesse V. Spielman, of Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, stood guard in the hall. As Barker and Cortez raped the teen, Green shot the three family members, killing them.

He then went into the next room and raped Abeer, before shooting her in the head. The soldiers lit her remains on fire before leaving. Another soldier stood watch a few miles away at the checkpoint.’

If this is the trauma and after shock that a trained solider can feel; can you imagine how the ordinary Iraqi civilian must feel. How they have to live each day watching the foreign occupiers, raping their land of resources and whatever they can.

The war in Iraq, is an illegal occupation that has no standing in international law. The war must end now; the foreign troops must evacuate and allow the Iraqi’s to decide their own future.

Holocaust survivor in danger again by the Zionists

Posted on


First they threatened to burn his house down. Then they pinned leaflets to his front door, denouncing him as a Jewish traitor. But Eli Tzavieli, an 89-year-old Holocaust survivor, is defiant. His only “crime” is to rent out his rooms to three Arab students attending the college in Safed, a religious city in northern Israel that was until recently more famous for Jewish mysticism and Madonna.

I see images of you everyday,
images that are, and will remain imprinted on my heart forever.
I cannot escape them, even if I were to try.
I see you, stood firm with a mere stone in your hand,
bravely confronting the oncoming tanks.
Your oppressors laugh and see it as a foolish act.
but my son, your stength comes from your unwaivering Emaan.
It is they who are the fools.

I see images of you everyday,
images that are, and will remain imprinted on my heart forever.
I cannot escape them, even if I were to try.
I see you stood motionless, with a blank look on your face,
staring at the rubble,
the rubble which was once..
your home.
Deafening bombs, brutally sent by cowardly invaders,
Cowards who have invaded..
..your home...your land..your mind...your heart...and your tranquility.
I see images of you everyday,
images that are, and will remain imprinted on my heart forever.
I cannot escape them, even if I were to try.
I see your limp, injured, bloody body carried by your father, rushing frantically and crazed.
I hear his piercing, panicked scream.
Yet.
it is only a still image before me.
Looking at it..
I...
cannot...
find..
my..
breath.
I see images of you everyday,
images that are, and will remain imprinted on my heart forever.
I cannot escape them, even if I were to try.
I see the remains of your beautiful mother,
you were to be her first born.
Shattered inside her womb.
My insides contract in agonising, unrecognisable pain.
Pain borne from the horrific way we have lost..
both of you.
I see images of you everyday,
images that are, and will remain imprinted on my heart forever.
I cannot escape them, even if I were to try.
I see the hoards of people at your funeral procession.
Fathers, Grandfathers, Uncles, brothers.
Raising the banner. Hurt beyond words.
Martyrs. Lions. Mujahids.
I see innocent life lost.
you, and you, and you, and you, and..
I try to shake off the feeling of madness, of disbelief, of lightheadedness.
My child,
your situation,
eats away at me..more than my disease.
You, my child, our child, are from amoungst this noble Ummahs honourable.
Deserving of witnessing the victory in your lifetime..InshaAllah.

Quotes – This is an Israeli and Western adventure

Quote Posted on Updated on


Lord Islington argued that the provisions concerning the establishment of a Jewish national home were inconsistent with Article 22 of the Covenant of the League of Nations, which had laid the foundations of the mandatory system. Lord Islington continued that ‘the mandate imposes on Great Britain the reasonability of trusteeship for a Zionist political predominance where 90 per cent of the population are non-Zionist and non-Jewish … In fact, very many orthodox Jews, not only in Palestine but all over the world, view with the deepest misapprehension, not to say dislike, this principle of a Zionist Home in Palestine … The scheme of a Zionist Home sought to make Zionist political predominance effective in Palestine by importing into the country extraneous and alien Jews from other parts of the world … This scheme of importing an alien race into the midst of a native local race is flying in the very face of the whole of the tendencies of the age. It is an unnatural experiment … It is literally inviting subsequent catastrophe …

Answering this criticism, the author of the Declaration, Lord Balfour, said:

Zionism may fail…this is an adventure…Are we never to have adventures? Are we never to try new experiments?…I do not think I need dwell upon this imaginary wrong which the Jewish Home is going to inflict upon the local Arabs. (Lord Balfour 21st June 1922 – House of Lords)

Lord Sydenham replied that the Zionist experiment would fail, but the harm done by dumping down an alien population upon an Arab country – Arab all round in the hinterland – may never be remedied … What we have done is, by concessions, not to the Jewish people but to a Zionist extreme section, to start a running sore in the East, and no one can tell how far the sore will extend.

(House of Lords, 21 June 1922)

Israeli wall or fence? – Spot the difference

Posted on


Israeli wall

Question: When is a fence not a fence?

Answer: When it is 8.5 meters long and made from concrete.

I grew up in the world of terraced dwellings in the UK where every house has a fence on the neighbouring side. I know the difference between a fence and a wall. What I see in Israel (occupied Palestine) is NOT a fence but a prison just like the world had created in Germany to separate the Capitalist West and Communist East.
