As the Israeli Zionist war criminal Netanyahu was addressing the US congress last night, a brave young Jewish woman stood up for humanity, disrupted his speech saying ” STOP ISRAELI WAR CRIMES!” lifting a banner which also said “Occupying land is indefensible”. The young woman’s name is Rae Abileah, she was tackled, beaten and then arrested by police agents who were at the scene. Netanyahu carried on his speech in a comedic way saying:
“You know, I take it as a badge of honor, and so should you, that in our free societies you can have protest, You can’t have these protests in the farcical parliaments in Tehran or Tripoli, this is real democracy”
Every single word in that phrase was hypocritical. Not that the rest of his speech wasn’t, everything that comes from a Zionist mouth is either a lie or hypocrisy.
Watch this video about the incident yesterday, it is extremely powerful!
I think he meant with democracy “Be glad we didn’t kill her on site”
Abileah said she was “in great pain” but her ordeal was nothing “compared to the pain and suffering that Palestinians go through on a regular basis.”
“I have been to Gaza and the West Bank, I have seen Palestinians’ homes bombed and bulldozed, I have talked to mothers whose children have been killed during the invasion of Gaza, I have seen the Jewish-only roads leading to ever-expanding settlements in the West Bank. This kind of occupation cannot continue… I feel obligated to rise up and speak out against these crimes being committed in my name and with my tax dollars.” -Abileah
Moving to Israel, what democracy is Netanyahu talking about? Is it the democracy in Israel where apartheid laws are being enacted everyday, some are to prevent people from holding a memorial for a specific event, like Nakba? [Nakba Law] The list of apartheid undemocratic laws goes on, there are dozens of apartheid laws in Israel which completely defy the true definition of a democracy.
What about freedom of speech? Netanyahu said that his free society allows freedom of speech. Palestinians, Israelis, foreigners in the West Bank, Gaza and 1948 Palestine march all the time against Israeli occupation and apartheid. Those protestors are peaceful protesters expressing their opinions, they are met with barrages of Tear Gas/Toxic Gas grenades, Rubber Bullets, Live Bullets, and sometimes tank shells. We can see that in the weekly peaceful demonstrations which take place in Bil’in, Ni’lin, Ma’sara, Silwan, Nabi Saleh, Shekh Jarrah, Bet Hanoun crossing, Qalandia and etc…
Netanyahu says his free society allows freedom of speech, What about Bassem Abu Rahmeh who was shot dead with a high velocity tear gas canister to his chest in Bil’in? He was standing behind a fence, standing still and shouting against occupation. You can see the full assasination of Bassem Abu Rahmeh in Bil’in in the following video
Another example, the American citizen Rachel Corrie who was run over by an Israeli Occupation Bulldozer near Rafah because she refused to see Palestinians’ homes being demolished for no reason. The list of those massacred by Israel for peacefully protesting Israeli occupation is huge.
What democracy when millions of citizens under Israeli Occupation are not able to vote to determine their futures? What democracy when anyone criticizing Israeli policies against Palestinians is labeled as an Anti-Semit? What Democracy when Israelis are able to claim land as theirs in East Jerusalem and the West Bank when Palestinians everywhere including diaspora, are not able to claim the house that was their’s months or years ago.
Netanyahu and all zionist scums alike are absolutely no one to be lecturing others about freedom and democracy. Israel is a terrorist state, it is an apartheid state, I consider Israel to be one of the least democratic state in the world similar to North Korea and Saudi Arabia for the atrocities it has committed in Palestine and the whole world alike.
The Speech by Netanyahu is a call for war, a war we don’t want to fight. Netanyahu is the enemy of peace, he is not willing to accept any compromise to grant Palestinian Arabs dignity and freedom. He came, he terrorized, and he is going to fall.
