Israel celebrated its independence day in Colombo on Monday June 5. This is sheer deception to fool the world.. The truth is Israel was planted in Palestine,in the heart of Middle East, in 1948 for migrant Jews to destabilize the Middle East .
At the turn of the last century. Palestine was part of the Turkish Ottoman Empire. About 96 percent of the population in 1896 were Arabs. Jews were only four percent .It was a peaceful place and violence and barbarity came with the arrival of Jews under the patronage of British mandatory power.
In 1897, the first World Zionist Congress, met in the Swiss city of Basle, decided to establish a Jewish state in Palestine for Jews who have not even seen Palestine. Ten years later in 1907 Britain decided at the London Colonial Conference to establish a hostile power which would keep the Middle East in turmoil.
This brought Britain and the Zionist Jews together. After the defeat of Turkey’s Ottoman Empire during World War 1 Palestine was brought under British Mandatory Authority in 1917 paving the way for Jewish migration to settle in Palestinian lands.
Unarmed Palestinians resisted. Jewish terror brigades such as Hagana, Stern , Irgun and Zvai Leumi, led by Menachem Begin, Yitzhak Shamir and Ariel Sharon, godfathers of terrorism , responded by massacring Palestinians village after village.
Designed to destroy the Palestinian resistance, Menachem Begin butchered 254 Palestinian men, women and children in Deir Yassin village a few miles off Jerusalem.
The helpless Palestinians rose up in protest and the British authority cruelly crushed the uprising. Frightened Palestinians ran for their lives and ended up in refugee camps where they still languish in appalling conditions.
Once sufficient numbers of Jews were brought in, the Zionists worked on partitioning Palestine. On November 29 1947, the United Nations, blackmailed by US, passed a resolution dividing Palestine and giving part of it to Jews to establish their racist Jewish state of Israel.
It was the upshot of inhuman force, created in violation of the principles of the UN Charter, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the very resolution under which the Israelis now claim sovereignty.
In the proposed Jewish state too the Arabs had a majority as of the total population of 1,008,900 the Arab-Jew ratio was 509,780 to 499,020. Jews robbed more than four million acres of Palestinian lands and around 500 Palestinian villages were wiped out to create Israel.
Emboldened by the Partition Resolution, the Zionists committed a series of reprehensible massacres against the Palestinian Arabs. The US supplied the Zionist terror gangs with weapons then as they do now. Since then Israel has committed more than 60 massacres.
In 1956 Israel invaded Egypt with Britain and France .In 1967 Israel invaded and captured Sinai , Gaza, South Lebanon, West Bank , East Jerusalem and Golan Heights. All in cooperation with it’s US and European supporters.
The history of Israel has been history of lies, deception, crimes, conspiracies, blackmail , murders and appalling massacres supported by US and Europe.
Today Jews from any part of the world could settle down in the occupied Palestinian lands whereas the Palestinians still holding the keys to their houses and title deeds for their lands were not permitted to return.
Israel, the only country without a permanent border, repeatedly elects war criminals as prime ministers. They are received with great respect by the US and Europe.
Israelis continue to kill Palestinians with impunity , grab Palestinian lands for settling migrant Jews, establish exclusive Jewish settlements in occupied Palestinian lands with American tax payers’ money ,demolishing Palestinian homes, destroying their farm lands ,deprive them of their livelihood, imprison and subject them to horrible torture , there are more than 11,000 Palestinians in Israeli jails , impose economic blockade on Gaza throttling more than 1.5 million Palestinians there. The crime list continues under the most inhuman Israeli military occupation in West Bank and Gaza.
This is the only entity where a Rabbi, Jewish priest could proudly say that the lives of one million Palestinians are not worth a fingernail of a Jew and gets away with it.
In the mid 1970s Zionism was declared by the UN as a form of racism.
Over the years today Israel, the most condemned country by the United Nations with more than 120 UN resolutions, has become the sole source of instability in the region and beyond.The UN remains ineffective in the face of Zionist crimes due to US and European support.
Abandoned by Arab dictators Palestinians today have no one to turn to. They are demonized as terrorists by the very same Zionist Jews who introduced terrorism to Middle East and the world.
Isn’t it time that Sri Lankan media which has been ignoring Israel’s crime on Palestinians for reasons better known to them now tell the truths about Israel.
Israeli presence in Sri Lanka ,with their global anti Muslim agenda, is disastrous as they are ruthless in implementing their conspiracies. I remember when I was working for the now defunct Sun newspaper in the second half of 1960s how Israeli envoy to Sri Lanka used the company to spread lies.
Every time Israel entered the island by the backdoor they were expelled. However once again they have penetrated the island. It appears they have already started using mercenaries to paint rosy picture of Israel in youtubes. Quicker responsible elements wake up better it is for the politically and economically battered country.
It is also time that the Foreign Minister, a Muslim, does some home work about Israel and its crime records besides its design and desecration of Masjid Al Aqsa. It is also worth reading the report of the presidential commission on allegations contained in the publication entitled “ by way of Deception-The making and unmaking of a Mossad officer 1991.
