israeli apartheid week 2014
Here is a message from Palestinian refugees, fishermen, farmers, students, Nakba generation, post-Nakba generation, academicians, saying that, “boycotting Israel is a mural duty for all people of conscience”.
Uhm, sorry, if you only see one side of the story you’re not paying attention.
In 2005 Israel gave back/desocupied/any other name you want to give Gaza without any agreements but the good intention to show that the government was open minded for conversation. The government haven’t even mentioned it to the israeli citizens who lived in there that were forced to leave their houses without destination apart from an hotel for a few days.
In January of 2006 there were ‘elections’ for the new government of the new State in Gaza. Unfortunately I put quotes on the word elections because it was forged by Hamas, an extremist party who does’t pay attention to the sake of the palestinians but rather waste money on attacking Israel, sending missiles almost every day.
Of course Israel would have so many restrictions on the people who live in the Gaza strip, since it puts their national security on risk. And don’t be fooled into thinking that every israeli citizen likes it or don’t see the need of a Palestine state or whatever you think is the right solution, it’s just that Hamas don’t recognise Israel as a State and therefore won’t negotiate peace, quite the opposite actually.
And yet the people who suffer more between this diplomatic problem are obviously the citizens, on BOTH sides.
