ISRAEL A DEMOCRATIC STATE....DREAM ON!!!
1 It is a hijack state founded on a whole land stolen from its indiginous population....the people of Palestine...who understandably would like it returned to them.
2 It is a declared reigious state but its non Jewish population suffers from a raft of higly discriminatory laws.
3 Israel itself is opposed by many Jewish people who believe to be either profane or a brutal .
4 Israel is also an expansionist state and higly aggressive to surrounding countries having invaded Egypt,Jordan, Syria and the Lebanon .It has twice destroyed the Lebanon.
6 The situation on the illegally occupied West Bank and in Gaza almost defies belief with attacks,brutality,and state terror tactics commonplace.
7 The Palestinians in the above areas have no democratic rights....they are beaten,murdered and imprisoned by the state with impunity. Almost all Palestinian males have ,at one time or another ,been jailed by the Israel.For them Israel is a vicious and thuggish police state.
Israel regularly flouts intenational laws and rulings like the Geneva Convention and the UN RESOLUTIONS [242 springs to mind].
8 Israel continues to steal water from Palestinian farmers on an industrial scale.It has denied Palestinian farmers access to the river Jordan and other water supplies and steals their land for the dozens of illegal paramilitary settlements it has planted on the West Bank in defiance of International Law.
9 Israel regularly imprisons without trial and kidnaps from the occupied territories.Some 9000 are currently being held including women and children....the ones that the Palestinian fighters want to swap for the captured soldier.
10 Israel also tortures and illtreats its Palestinian prisoners on a regular basis.Read the Amnesty Reports and Human Rights reports.
11 Israel is a terrorist state which is currently waging indiscriminate war on the civilian population of The Lebanon..it has killed or maimed hundreds in the past few weeks alone...it has flattened neighbourhoods,houses and hospitals.No democratic rights for its victims there only the bomb and the missile.
12 There will be no democracy in Israel until the Palestinian people get justice. Zionism with its Imperial backer is taking the whole region down a path to war without end .
13 Another world is possible and essential.
