“When the state of Israel was established on the Palestinian land in 1948, tens of thousands of Palestinians were removed from their homes, massacred and forced to live as refugees. These people included Jews, Christians, and the majority of Muslims. Often we are confronted with “Why can’t you support Israel,” and the answer to that question is that Israel has no claim to be on the Palestinian land. Not only that, the issue of Israel’s hegemony doesn’t emerge as Israel has never officially declared its boundaries (because it intends to occupy all of Palestine). Boundaries define territories. The entire Earth is made sacred as far as the Holy Land is concerned, so stirring conflict in any way is unholy. Politically Israel is not a state, and religiously Israel is in breach of the values of Judaism. LONG LIVE PALESTINE.”
