My reflections on Palestine and Zionism are provided in short form here and in longer form across many articles available free online at my personal website.
by Robert David Steele, American Herald Tribune:
Zionism is a subversive force that includes global state-sponsored terrorism and global organized crime. It cannot and should not be confused with Judaism, the religion. Zionism is dominated by the Chabad Supremacist cult within Judaism, and Orthodox Jews as its “useful idiots.” Most Jews – and particularly Reform and Progressive Jews, want nothing to do with Zionism and understand that Zionist atrocities within Palestine – and Zionist bribery, blackmail, espionage, and financial crime all over the world but especially in the United States of America and the United Kingdom – are not the same as Judaism the religion. Zionism bad, Judaism good.
Jerusalem is a Holy City for All, Not Part of the Zionist Mandate
The United Nations (UN) Partition Plan of 1947 is quite clear on the isolation of Jerusalem as a corpus separatum, a separate entity to be placed under international jurisdiction. Even though West Jerusalem falls within the pre-1967 Armistice line, the Israeli Declaration of Independence cited and accepts the UN Partition Plan as the basis for the legitimacy of the state of Israel. East Jerusalem is completely outside Israel’s borders by any possible existing agreement. Both the UN Security Council and the International Court of Justice (the latter in its Wall Decision of 2004) have ruled unanimously that the territory beyond the pre-1967 Armistice line does not belong to Israel and changes to the pre-1967 Armistice line can only be made by agreement between the two contending parties.
Israel is an Invented State and an Apartheid State
Israel is an invented state with absolutely no historically valid claim to Palestine. As Gandhi has stated so famously, “Palestine is to the Palestinians as France is to the French.” It has been clearly established that there was no “up-rooting” of the so-called Jewish people. Judaism is not Semitic – this is part of the Zionist myth – but to the extent it can be said to have roots, those roots are in Eastern Europe, among the Khazars.
Israel is also an apartheid state – by definition – and in this I totally agree with Professor Richard Falk, the most distinguished UN Special Rapporteur on human rights in the Palestinian territories who equates the insistence on being a “Jewish state” with the apartheid structure used to subjugate and displace the Palestinian people. The persistent definition of Israel as a “Jewish state” is in total contradiction to all authorizing documents and totally delegitimizes that state – it makes Israel an apartheid state meriting an absolute boycott by all citizens of the world who believe in human rights.
Palestine Has Been Occupied with Five Big Lies, Four Big Thefts
Although the Palestinians specifically and the Arabs generally have been well aware of the specifics of Zionist encroachment – in complete violation of the Balfour Declaration as well as the applicable UN agreements – it is only in the past year that the definitive book has come out summarizing in great deal how the Zionists went from controlling 10% of Palestine through legal purchases to controlling 85% of Palestine by displacing or killing 83% of the Palestinian population (in the Negev, 90%).
Professor Gary Fields of the University of California did not set out to excoriate the Zionists – in fact he took great care in his book, ENCLOSURE: Palestinian Landscapes in a Historical Mirror(University of California Press, 2017) to first study the atrocities of the British against their own freemen, and then of the Americans against the Native Americans. A six-star work of history, political economy, human rights & atrocities, and cultural engineering, this book documents the fact that the Zionist state of Israel is rooted in five big lies and four big thefts.
The five big lies:
01 Palestine was “unoccupied” and consisted of “dead land”
02 Zionists have earned and are the rightful owners of Palestine by virtue of building
03 Every place in Palestine has a Hebrew name, Palestinian names can be ignored
04 Archeological sites are being “found” (fabricated) that “prove” Zionist history in Palestine
05 Zionists are a poor beleaguered people being attacked by lazy Palestinians who cannot work hard
The four big thefts:
