The Ongoing Nakba In Palestine

One 15 year old boy and one 17 year old boy where both assassinated  within a few minutes of each other by an Israeli snipe today. Mohammad and Nader were murdered as they participated in demonstrations marking the 66th anniversary of the Nakba (the catastrophic and continuing ethnic cleansing of Palestine to create the apartheid Jewish state of Israel on its ruins).  Several other youth were also hit with live ammunition, some in critical condition. Video can be seen here:http://www.alwatanvoice.com/arabic/news/2014/05/15/538367.html

Video, the Ethnic Cleansing of Jerusalem

Denying the “Nakba”: ‘Not An Option, Israel’
Gum Films: The Lab An investigative documentary revealing how the Israeli military occupation in Palestine has become a business rather than a burden.

This is just one of the reasons Israel does not want peace: 10 billion from tested-n-Palestinians weapon sales. Other two are direct profit from stealing Palestinian property, direct profit from a captive market under occupation, direct profit from foreign aid extorted from US and other tax-payers. It is also the financial reason why Israel does not want refugees to return and reclaim their stolen property. A thief wants to get away with theft, a murderer with murder. The absence of enforcement of international law lets this travesty go on. That is why we need more push on resistance, activism, and Boycotts, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS)

While we are still awaiting the implementation of "reconciliation" between Hamas and Fatah and the hope of reconstituting a democratic PLO, we must continue to act vigorously and strongly. We owe it to our martyrs.
