From Crematoriums to Genocide

1.    David Makovsky, a senior analyst at the Middle East section of Washington Institute, recently explained about escalation of violence in Gaza Strip claiming that the root cause was rockets fired by Hamas militants and the United States should take action to prevent Palestinians from firing their rockets which can fly for 10 km and target Israelis settlers. He proposed international consensus against rocket attacks, convincing Arab countries to boycott Hamas, putting pressure on Egypt for military cooperation with Israel and obstructing passes through which foodstuff is taken from Egypt to south Gaza, and imposing a one-way cease-fire on Hamas, as the main options to the above goal.

2.    National committee in charge of dealing with the siege of Palestine announced in a detailed report that the siege of Gaza and sealing all trade and non-trade passes into that region had led to monthly economic losses of 45 million dollars, increased unemployment to 60 percent and raised poverty line to above 67 percent of population.

3.    The Palestinian ministry of prisoners of war has issued a report announcing that since occupation of the West Bank and Gaza Strip in 1967, more than 700,000 out of 1.5 million immigrant Palestinians have been arrested and 10,500 Palestinians are currently being held at Israeli prisons. According to that report, Israeli forces have apprehended about 6,000 Palestinian children since the beginning of al-Aqsa intifada in 2000.

4.    What is the meaning of all these measures for a regime which boasts the fourth powerful army of the world, wields military superiority in the Middle East and has a plentiful reserve of atomic and cluster bombs and other forms of weapons of mass destruction, and which has strategic allies like the United States and European countries including Britain, France, and Germany and which is sure about silence and indifference of Arab countries vis-à-vis its crimes? What is the good of forging international consensus, economic embargo, imprisonment and massacre for a fully armed regime in the face of stone throwing immigrants when news and pictures of Palestinian youths are covered by hundreds of daily reports and commentaries in various mass media?

5.    It seems that just in the same way that the Zionist regime needs the myth of the Holocaust and crematoriums as a basis for its existence, it also needs fictitious threats to its very existence in order to go on with the current genocide of Palestinian refugees. It helps Israel to convince the world public opinion that thousands of Palestinian old men and women, children and youth are dangerous and send them to shambles of its state terrorism.

6.    Now, consolidated ranks of resistant Muslim Palestinian fighters and awareness resulting from that resistance has helped those fighters to prove that the process of nation building, forging unreal identities for political geography of Beit ul-Moqaddas, erecting the Separation Wall, assassination of Palestinian leaders like Ahmad Yasin, Rentisi, Fathi Shaqaiq and massacre of defenseless women and children, are not possible to strip Palestinian people of their Islamic dignity even if the only way ahead is to get martyred on the path of God.
