I was 18 yrs old when the 6 day war took place in the Middle East 40 yrs. ago, I thought then that Israel was a heroic place and that Palestinians were the bad guys, I now know different.
My sympathy was with the Jews after their suffering during the war, this was only approx. 20 yrs since the horrors of Auschwitz and my views on the Arabs were formed by a media which was vehemently pro Israel and anti Arab, it took me years to eventually take a proper interest and now it never goes away.
The territory occupied in the war is still occupied now and the Palestinian people are suffering and dying, I began to ask myself 'how could the Jewish people do this to another people after what they had suffered' 1.4 million now live in Gazza with no hope, the worlds biggest prison. 5 million Palestinian refugees in the middle East, A massive fence has been built to imprison Arabs and steal more land, an Aparthied Fence, who would have thought that Jewish people could do something like that ? Remember, this is being done by Israel, Palestinians are now left with 12% of what was once their homeland.
The International community led by America allows this to happen - this a war crime and Israel is committing it, the image which the world sees is a Palestinian child throwing a stone at an Israeli tank, when will it end ? when will the Arabs get justice ?
When Israel was created and the Palestinian people lost their homes, farms and villages, Israel's first prime minister the Zionist thug Ben Gurion said about the plight of the Palestinians "the old will die and the young will forget" he's not the first victorious brute to be wrong as the young people of Palestine continue to prove.
The old do indeed die but the young continue to remember, and so it will continue until justice is done by the -Palestinians, this is Israel's shame.
