Scott Rickard’s Commentary On Palestine-Israel Conflict
Also misrepresented was Israel's "creation" in 1948. The Irgun and Haganah conducted several terrorist attacks against the British that led to their departure in 1948 and threatened the legitimacy of the mandate. Also not mentioned was the fact that the US, Europe and Russia financed, armed and trained the Israelis in their baseless and premeditated attack on their Arab neighbors.
I agree that Israel is an Apartheid state. A Jewish state. Might as well be an Islamic or a Christian state. Sure doesn't sound like freedom of religion or any form of democracy to me.
Contrary to what Atul wrote, Canada and the US do not have significant Jewish populations. 375,000 Jews in Canada account for just over 1% of the total population. 5,275,000 Jews in the US account for just under 2% of the total population. To give you a little perspective, Hispanics account for roughly 16% and blacks account for roughly 13% of the American population. What he failed to mention is the incredible Zionist influence on North American finance, media, entertainment, religion and Scofield reference Bible Christian religious indoctrination that has existed for over a century.
Unfortunately, the US is still very racist and has been trained through entertainment, media and religion to support Israel and reject Arabs and Muslims. J-Street is merely AIPAC lite. Not much will change in the US until the country breaks away from these Zionist institutions.
