Jews should get the hell out of Palestine
– Helen Thomas (US victim of Zionism)

West Asia

, by DAVE MAKKAR

Journalist Helen Thomas, who began covering the White House in 1960, and has remained a presence at the White House daily briefings, under Zionist threats announced she will retire effective immediately. The announcement comes after Zionist lobby made her life hell for the remarks in which she said: Jews should get the hell out of Palestine.”
Helen Thomas is by no means the first one to suggest that Jews should “get the hell out of Palestine.” Even Mahatma Gandhi in November 1938 rejected the claims of Zionist for a Jewish homeland in Palestine. Gandhi asserted, “My sympathy does not blind me to the requirements of justice. The cry for the national home for the Jews does not make much appeal to me. The sanction for it is sought in the Bible and in the tenacity with which the Jews have hankered after their return to Palestine. Why should they not, like other peoples of the earth, make that country their home where they are born and where they earn their livelihood?”
Mahatma Gandhi thus questioned the very foundational logic of political Zionism. He  rejected the idea of a Jewish State in the Promised Land by pointing out that the “Palestine of the Biblical conception is not a geographical tract.”
Helen Thomas observation “Jews should get the hell out of Palestine” is very much in tune to the words of Mahatma Gandhi spoken about seven decades ago.
Whatever professionally and socially is happening to Helen Thomas; Zionists are used to doing that to everyone who dares to speak truth about Israel in their colony United States of America (Israel). There is a long list of victims of Zionism like Helen Thomas.
Not too long in January 2008 Arun Gandhi was forced to resign from M K Gandhi Institute for Non- violence by the Zionist Leadership for making honest comments about Israel. M K Gandhi Institute for non-violence was founded in America 17 years ago by Arun Gandhi himself to spread the ideals of Father of the Indian Nation, Mahatma Gandhi, who happens to be his grandfather. The way Arun Gandhi was treated by Zionist lobby is gross injustice and assault on right to Freedom of Free Speech in America that calls itself the champion of Democracy and Human Rights.
Arun Gandhi wanted to suggest that, “Israel is a nation that believes its survival can only be ensured by weapons and bombs.” The fact is every Zionist leader, past and present, honestly believed that only a continuing state of conflict – without which they are afraid that western sympathy and aid would evaporate quickly – could assure the survival of their Jewish homeland Israel.
“Every Israeli leader since 1948 with the exception of Yitzhak Rabin, during his last term, has remained true to that conviction and made no genuine move to seek an honourable peace with Palestinians. For Israeli leaders in the ’60s and ’70s, Palestinians simply don’t exist! Leaders in the ’70s and ’80s blamed Palestinian ‘terrorists’ for lack of peace, and reserved the worst racial epithets for the Palestinian people: “cockroaches,” “beast on two legs,” “scum that ought to be exterminated,” etc.; in the late ’90s and early 2000s, Israel chose to demonise Arafat as the sole obstacle to peace; and until recently, now it is blaming the election of Hamas for its inability to make peace.”
This Organised Zionist Leadership is besides promoting a Culture of Moral and Ethical Corruption everywhere in the world, is governing Israel with guns and bombs to glorify their illegal confiscation of Palestine Land. To hide all of this they want the entire world to live in the past that Jews were massacred by Hitler so they deserve every one’s sympathy!
Today when Israel is exposed to criticism for its atrocities on Palestinians and its illegal occupation of their country since 1967, its defenders prefer to emphasise on the memory of the Holocaust and any criticism of Israel is anti-Semitism.  An Israeli Jew, Sam Vaknin wrote: “By shouting “anti-Semitism” every time someone attacks Israel or defends Palestinians, we are breeding cynics.”
Another Israeli writer and Peace activist Gideon Levy has to say about Terrorist state of Israel: “The time has come to send Israel for observation. Only psychiatrists can explain Israel’s behaviour. Its acts have no rational explanation. It suffers from a loss of touch with reality. Temporary or permanent insanity. Paranoia. Schizophrenia. Memory loss. Loss of judgment.” (Gideon Levy)
Every person around the world must unite against Israel to defend the Freedom of Speech Rights of people like Helen Thomas, Arun Gandhi etc. and the Right of the Palestinians to their own country. If the world wants Peace then Israel must vacate the Palestinian Land it is forcibly occupying for the last 43 years.
