War Is Also Terrorism

Israeli Zionism’s Self-Imposed Suicidal Sentence to Eternal Distrust & Conflict

Invading, Occupying, Repressing, & Removing Indigenous Palestinians

Zionist Jews, formerly severely traumatized people whose community had faced persecution & pogroms in Europe for 2000 years & the attempted “final solution” eradication at the hands of the Nazis during World War 2, turned around & have been similarly terrorizing their neighbors since they began migrating to Palestine a century ago, especially since getting western approval upon establishing the state of Israel in 1948.

They have, with violent apartheid & periodic military raids intimidated, harassed, confined, imprisoned, & killed their Palestinian co-dwellers of this small stretch of land ever since.

Their goals? To be kings of the roost in a land they’ve violently ripped away from those who had dwelt there for centuries.

Their claim to the territory being of several millennia’s longevity has not aged well & does not age well when others, having arrived & settled there peacefully in the meantime, find an ancient society suddenly violently descending upon them while leaving them with no place to flee.


This is no different from a woman being abused by her husband for years finally burning him in his bed — seemingly a terroristic attack but merely an attempt to regain her rights. Even a U$ court sided with the woman. See the film “The Burning Bed” (1984) or read the non-fiction book of the same name by the battered woman the account is based on (1980). You gotta do what you gotta do to stop being a victim of persecution. Just as a woman trying to stand up muscle for muscle to a strong male will suffer constant injury or death, a direct military assault by the Palestinians would be futile. Eventually, other Arab states will step in to defend the Palestinians, at which point all bets will be off as to how it all ends.
