Hypocrisy Has No Limits
by Imam Achmad Cassiem
Radio 786 (South Africa),
For the past 54 years the Zionist Regime has been a client state
of the U.S.A. This year alone Israel has received R23 billion in
military aid from the U.S.A., R8 billion in grants, and R3.2 billion
in donations. The estimated trade between the superpower and the
client state is R210 billion. Is it then any wonder that President
Bush complains that Yasser Arafat has not yet won his trust. What
trust does one expect there to be between an oppressor and the oppressed?
Under these circumstances it is futile to beg us to try and understand
the views and opinions of the invader-aggressor-occupier-colonialist-oppressor-exploiter.
It is certainly not our task to become adjusted to maladjustment.
It is with genuine amusement we hear Lou Dobbs the host of CNN's
Moneyline program asking various politicians, businessmen and academics
whether the U.S.A. can be called a neutral, objective peace broker
in the Middle East. This is unfortunately a rhetorical question.
And will always remain so. The U.S.A. gives the Zionists everything
(including military intelligence) to fight a major war against a
people who do no even have weapons. And when the Zionist warmonger
Sharon goes on the rampage the only reprimand he gets is not to
use "excessive force". Perhaps assassinating a Palestinian
freedom fighter with lazer guided missiles from helicopter gunships
is not considered excessive force.
Most of the Palestinians fighting the Zionist Regime where
not even born when the illegitimate Zionist State was established
in 1948. Some weren't even born before 1967 or even 1973.
This should be a lesson to all oppressors that resistance
is capable of regenerating itself.
During the siege of Ramallah, Yasser Arafat was simply a
prisoner of war in the hands of the occupiers of his country.
Yet President Bush insisted in calling upon him to stop the
acts of resistance against the Zionist aggressors. The continuous
covert and overt support and arms supplies to the Zionist
aggressors merely prolongs the suffering of the Palestinian
people and makes the Zionist entity more belligerent and more
"It is irrational, illogical,
and obscene for the oppressors to tell the oppressed how they
should respond to their own oppression. This means that the
Zionist Regime, its lackeys and supporters cannot, may not
and should not be allowed to propose any solutions."
is the cause of the problem?
The cause of the problem is the illegal occupation, by Zionist
racists, of the land of the Palestinians. The rationalization for
the usurpation of Palestinian land is that God Himself gave the
land to the Jews and it therefore belongs to them for the past +
4,000 years. Only a fraction of the worlds 16 million Jews believe
in this fervently enough to immigrate to their God-given land. What
was posited as the final solution to the Jews in the diaspora, has
become their worst nightmare. There are more Jews in the U.S.A.
than in the Zionist State itself.
Some secular Jews, agnostics and atheists do not believe these
scriptural claims; many religious Jews, Rabbis of the Neturei Karta
included do not believe these claims. The overwhelming majority
of the world's 1.5 billion Muslims do not believe these claims.
The last census taken by the British in 1931 revealed that the
Jews constituted less than 10% of the population in Palestine. What
we are dealing with is a blatant act of colonialist aggression and
occupation. The U.N. resolution endorsing the de facto occupation
is simply a fig leaf to disguise this naked act of aggression against
an indigenous people.
is the proposed solution?
A major principle has evolved through centuries of armed, struggle
against oppressors worldwide; that it is irrational, illogical,
and obscene for the oppressors to tell the oppressed how they should
respond to their own oppression. We endorsed that principle here
in South Africa, and we endorse it on behalf of the Palestinian
people. This means that the Zionist Regime, its lackeys and supporters
cannot, may not and should not be allowed to propose any solutions.
This would specifically exclude the idea of a two-state solution:
that is, a Zionist State and a Palestinian State existing side by
side on the land of the Palestinian people. Tova Herzl [israeli
ambassador] frequently mentions that the Zionist State is only the
size of the Kruger National Park; our position is that even if the
Zionist State is the size of a postage stamp it has no right to
Occupied Palestine must be decolonized, deracialized and
restored to the Palestinian people as a single sovereign state.
In plain English, the Zionist State must be dismantled.
The Jews known as the Neturei Karta International believe
Israel must be dismantled peacefully; we are sure that if
that is possible the Palestinian people will welcome it with
"Tova Herzl frequently mentions that the Zionist State
is only the size of the Kruger National Park; our position
is that even if the Zionist State is the size of a postage
stamp it has no right to exist."
A second principle evolved in liberation struggles all over the
world is that it doesn't make sense to make maximum sacrifices for
minimum political gains. Why should the Palestinians make maximum
sacrifices and then exchange the largest share of their land in
order to secure the survival and peace of the illegitimate racist
occupier. The oppressors do not form part of our constituency.
At the Palestinian solidarity conference held in Tehran in April
last year a resolution was unanimously adopted by the delegates
calling for a referendum to be held in Occupied Palestine (this
includes the usurped territory now called Israel). The referendum
will include all population groups including Jews, Christians, etc;
as well as all the Palestinian refugees living in exile.
This referendum will determine the nature of the State and the
form of government envisaged by all those participating in the referendum.
The two-state solution must be rejected for what it is; an attempt
to decriminalize a crime, legitimize the illegitimate and allow
the U.S.A. to perpetuate its hegemony in the region via its client
state the rogue terrorist Zionist Regime of Israel !!!
