The Palestinian solidarity movement in South Africa (through BDS South Africa and the Palestine Solidarity Alliance) have taken out over 12 billboards (large outdoor displays) across the country graphically explaining the Israeli Occupation of Palestinian lands and the dispossession of the Palestinian people. More than five billboards have already gone up with more to follow in coming weeks.
Finally, it is also clear that the Zionist leaders occupying the Israeli Knesset have now become aware that their colonial juggernaut is running out of fuel. So, in order to pump more colonial life into it, they have come up with the racist “Oath to the Jewish Nation”. Its twin tank has been filled with the illegal call to punish all those who commemorate the 1948 Nakba.
Shedding more light on the Zionist lies about Palestine being “a land without people.” In December 1945 and January 1946, the British Mandate authorities carried out an extensive survey of Palestine , in support of the work of the United Nations Special Committee on Palestine. The results were published in the Survey of Palestine. One of the subjects investigated in the Survey of Palestine is land use; specifically, which crops were Palestine’s leading agricultural products at the end of the British Mandate, and whose farms were producing them.
The ethnic cleansing of Palestinians continues to this day. In 1948 it went unobserved by most of the world media. Today, it continues despite of the presence of world media. Add to this the farcical indifference of the world community. If this is acceptable today, then we are bystanders. Tala Qiresh, the little Palestinian girl in the pictures, and her family have been evicted from their home in Old Jerusalem and despite the lawyer’s intervention, the soldiers refuse them entry. Tala and her family sleeps on the street in front their home. The Qiresh family lived in that house since 1940 with 40 other residents in 20 rooms.

By Antoine Raffoul* | Sabbah Report | www.sabbah.biz In an Opinion submitted to the Electronic Intifada on 4 March 2010 entitled: Moment of Truth, Rifat Kassis rightly asks: what does ‘boycott’ mean, how far does it go, and what does it call for? We, at 1948: Lest We Forget, wish to respond to any call… Read More »
