From This Moment On

“We shall never turn a blind eye to our national principles and ideals…and will remain faithful to Al-Quds and the al-Aqsa Mosque and all sanctities of Islam and Christianity…we shall guard them with our lives and through our hearts. We will support the Palestinian residents of the Occupied Al-Quds and the occupied territories who have risen up to protect the al-Aqsa Mosque.”
The above is part of the Hamas Islamic Resistance declaration on the 22nd anniversary of its foundation on Dec 14, 2009.
There is a small slither of overcrowded, malnourished and bruised land whose population is made up of Arabs from all over a country that was once called Palestine. They were marched by force from Ashkelon, Sderot, Beersheba, Ashdod, Netivot, Eshkol, Tulkarm and numerous other villages, towns and cities as far as Haifa by a well armed, determined and politically and racially motivated European paramilitary. They were packed into the Gaza strip; a piece of land whose refugee camps became sprawling cities barely able to contain the heaving mass of humanity within.
In time the confines of the Gaza concentration camp began to trouble its youth. The Youth brought up on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea have far horizons and seek the sort of freedom sought by sea farers.
And yet freedom is just the another commodity denied the wave of Palestinian patriotism and instincts for survival; because survival is impossible without freedom. This is the reason why perhaps, that a very believable and highly calculated 3D portrait of freedom has been constructed to contain Western communities. But funding such an artificial status quo would cost the Earth. And it is costing the Earth to keep it going.
Oh those darned “Palestinian terrorists” this, and “militant Hamas movement” that and yet those nice Israelis killing babies in Gaza are absolutely right to do so, costs money to instill in the Western public’s mind.
What happens if the money for the operation fails to materialize?
Alternative news agencies and countless humanitarian NGOs’ voices become audible all of a sudden and gradually the message begins to get through.
The Hamas’ declaration above is from 1.5 million people whom the Zionist propaganda machine says are not human. Have no rights to live as human beings and can be discarded because they are militant, terrorist, insurgent, resurgent, Islamist, fundamentalist and did I say terrorist; I beg your pardon I am beginning to repeat myself already… just like the Western media.
The drum of ceaseless publicity against Palestine is not likely to cease because the Zionist regime is going the same route of Nazi justification for extermination of people they did not like. It’s an old formula whose ingredients are:
1. Defame the assumed enemy’s leaders.
2. Defame their social structure.
3. Defame their security apparatuses.
4. Defame their ideals and attempt a take over.
The architect of the formula was a Nazi called Goebbels and his entire family as well as he met a very grisly end indeed.
What is the difference between the Nazi regime whose autocracy founded the basis for purification of Europe, and the so-called modern Western societies’ practices in the removal of the entire Palestinian nation from its native lands by force?
Europe is the problem. It does not want its Jews back and now it does not want the Muslims there either; because these foreigner fuzzy wazzys interfere with its neo-Nazi dream of democratic existence: In the way that the Jews rather messed up the Nazi theories on race and culture.
The whole of Europe became guilty of collaboration with the Nazis once Adolf’s circus arrived in town. The Italians blamed their racism on Mussolini, the French on Marshal Petin’s Vichy government and so on and so forth across a continent that assisted the Nazi ideology so it could rid itself of the Jews.
And in the end the Jews had to go anyway, anywhere, and Palestine was just across the water, underdeveloped, undefended and peaceful.
The quest for the freedom of Palestine from occupation and denial of basic human rights will never cease. It is human nature.

A flustered looking pet dog runs to its “bestest friend in the whole wide world,” as she, emerges from Sainsbury's super market. Outside Maple tree tops catch the sunlight and sway gently in the breeze. The weather is so pleasant for the time of year in England and at around 24 degrees centigrade shiny new cars are out with their owners visibly cherishing the chance to wear their latest style sunglasses. The convertibles have their tops down as the occupants let their hair down. London's red buses run as they always have through the garden suburbs and there are no hints of anything unusual going on in Britain's capital.
Even the annoying world recession does not appear -on the face of it- to have done much lasting damage. People are out eating in the restaurants and soaking in the precious sunlight. There is peace all around.
The Brits are known for sweeping all unpleasantness under the carpet and possess a pedigree called the stiff upper lip. However something is on the British public's mind and it preoccupies the people as they grin and bear it. You'd have had to have been brought up in Britain to sense and understand it.
All is not what it seems in London.
If one were to make a rough guess about it he would have to say perhaps the war Afghanistan is beginning to bear down on the British public's conscience.
This isn't because Afghans are getting killed or because Afghanistan is in a total new mess created by the US-led coalition's occupation of the country. There has never been any sense of guilt about empire-building in Britain.
In the last few sunny days of August 2009, the British public goes about its business with a sense of collective guilt about the British troops dying in a far flung region of the world in which the enterprise of “great pitch and moment” of war against terrorism has lost the name of action.
So how does the Gordon Brown government justify it all?
The publicity undercurrent to keep the British taxpayer at bay, something that is ever so delicately transferred through the media -and yet the method in it reeks of vulgarity- is to portray all the rest of the world as a whirlpool of uncertainty, chaos and disorder.
Britain's state controlled TV, the BBC, and the so-called privately owned channels' reports from even the most peaceful places in the world quickly rush to find faults with them and magnify their shortcomings.
Good old England can never sink as low as that horrid Godforsaken geographic mishap the programs shout out. The reports communicate the message to the people of Britain that they are indeed blessed by God to be living in the tranquility of a lone Island that is too full of “goodness gracious me” to even consider itself part of Europe.
So the message is, in order to preserve the status quo sacrifices have to be made; and the young gentlemen in England who have grown up to love their land, history and heritage are most often the lot who feel obliged to pay the price with their lives; if they must!
The British public is so skillfully detached from it all with an instilled sense of social superiority over the rest of the world that it will never sway from the path set out for it by a few devil's advocates with unlimited tools of control within -funnily enough- a Democracy.
The war in Afghanistan will most likely be lost, but will be declared a victory in line with the age old habit of the Western world in such situations. However this time, the stigma attached to such senseless loss of lives all-round is showing signs of remaining to impede Britain in the future. It appears to be chipping away at the very core of the British society's cohesion: that artificially generated sense of moral ascent that has kept the scam running for centuries.
