Criticise this and I will call you an Anti-semite

Video: Interview with child taken as human shield in Nablus from Electronic Intifada
Video, Research Journalism Initiative and A-Films, 7 March 2007 The authors can be contacted at a-films@no-log.org and ripplescross@yahoo.com.

On 28 February 2007, during the Israeli invasion of Nablus (Operation " Hot Winter ") , the IOF kidnapped 11-year-old Jihan Tahdush from her home in the Old City of Nablus.

She was used as a human shield while Israeli forces conducted door-to-door searches in the Old City. Jihan says of the incident:

"They gave me biscuits to persuade me to talk to them, but I didn't tell them anything. When I brought them to the house they told me not to be afraid because they were with me. When I asked to go back to my mom, they said, 'We have to keep you a bit longer.'"
This video-interview was produced by the Research Journalism Initiative and the Anarchist Film Collective "A-Films".

Here are two pictures the first is , a mass grave for the indigenous Indians who were massacred at Wounded Knee (their home) in 1890. In the second picture, some of the civilians who were victims of the Qana Massacre, killed (in their homes) in Lebanon 2006 by the invading IDF .

These illustrate a compelling and legthy essay by Adib S Kawar - The similarity between the ethnic cleansing of The Indigenous Americans and Palestinian Arabs
at Peace Palestine this week.

....Cage them

One of the most striking similarities between the colonizers of the Americas and Palestine is their plan to cage the indigenous populations of the colonized lands, with the aim of exterminating them or at least uprooting them from their land. Black Elk of Lakota wrote: “My people looked pitiful. There was a big drought, and the rivers and creeks seemed to be dying. Nothing would grow that the people had planted, and the Wasichus had been sending less cattle and other food than ever before. The Wasichus had slaughtered all the bison and shut us up in pens. It looked as if we might all starve to death. We could not eat lies, and there was nothing we could do.." L. Frank Baum - Editor and Publisher, “The Aberdeen Saturday Pioneer” December 1890

Up till today “Red Indians” are caged in reserves, which are not far from being Zoos, true they are not actual zoos, and “Red Indians” have the privilege of running gambling casinos, and have some tax free commodities, but still they are caged, they are as Black Elk said, they “shut us up in pens”, and they are there so that tourists will come to see the few remaining living specimens of the indigenous “Red Indians”.


One difference between the two acts of colonization in Palestine and the Americas, namely, nobody volunteered to coin a term for those who defend the “Red Indians”. As Zionists, and unfortunately, many Americans and Europeans do when somebody defends the Palestinian cause, and condemns Zionist crimes, those people are called “anti-Semites”, and if they happen to be of the Jewish faith, they are called “self hating Jews”.

Hey. The United States is a nation founded on Genocide and Slavery.
The United States is a sponsor of Israel.

Do you wear Nikes, Levis? Do you listen to rock and roll?

So what's your point???

It is a point you seem to have fully grasped.

No Nikes, No Levis but am a great admirer of Bill Haley and his Comets.
