Palestinian intifada

There are many photos coming out of Hebron, West Bank of Palestinian activists responding to the death of Maysara Abu Hamdiyeh in an Israeli prison. They are responding with the only weapons the dispossessed can muster : stones, Molotov cocktails, slingshots. Abu Hamdiyeh was serving a life sentence for the 2002 bombing of a Jerusalem cafe where no one died. Did he receive due process & a trial or has he been in prison for 11 years merely as an accused? He was 64-years-old & died of throat cancer on Tuesday in an Israeli hospital. Palestinians activists say he wasn’t given proper treatment; Israeli officials claim he was treated by specialists. Of the Dr. Mengele kind!?

Palestinian prisoners have been protesting (which the media calls “rioting”) & refusing to eat since the death of Abu Handiyeh. The furious response of Palestinian activists bodes not well for Zionist settlement policy. It bodes intifada.

Zionists do their damndest to link their repulsive ideology to the Jewish holocaust in order to render it justified. What an insult & slander to those who lost their lives & loved ones for being Jewish!  Zionism has nothing to do with Jewish ethnic or religious views. It has to do with cynicism, racism, right-wing nationalism.

Demand “No US aid to Israel!” Boycott all Israeli products (barcode beginning 729)!
