12.5 million Palestinains world wide are called to stop for 71 seconds today to remember one of the most atrocities and ethnic cleansing criminality that was committed in 1948 against the original people of Palestine, depriving 2/3 of the people from their homes and lands, sending them to the four corners of the world, and denying them their absolute right to return to their homes of origin. Bernadote, who was behind the 194 international resolution was shot dead, and nowadays, 71 years after, efforts are evident from the zionists and their supporters, that they want to burry these rights under the continued theft of land and building illegal settelements, and producing apartheid laws, raising one group of people over others, in what they call the new national law. When the apartheid laws are dashed to the rubbles of history in South Africa since 1994, others try to implement it nowadays in historic Palestine.
132 years of Algerian colonisation ended; centuries of colonisation in Congo,where a king once owned the whole country as a personal property, killing millions of people as consequence; Vietnam, China, Cuba, only to mention few examples: all these colonial powers ended in the rubbles of history. Palestine is not an exception. The right of return and restitution is crystal clear, although 71 years since adopted by the general assembly, 194 rsolution is not for negotiations; it is for implementation. POINT.
My village, Lubya, as well as others of the 601 villages partially or totally demolished, will stand as a witness to those crimes committed against civilian and indigenous people as a result of the complexity of the EuroCentric policies and sense of guilt because of the crimes comitted against a group of people, the Jews of Europe. Out struggle in Palestine was never, and will never be based on religious claims: it is based on the human rights of people for self determination and freedom from colonial powers that started with Balfour declaration and culminated now to what is names as the Deal of the Century.
I will resend the film: “Ancestors land” again as a documentary that confirms the solid Will, that we will not forget; we will insist to struggle to achieve justice according to international laws and human rights charter; for the right of return and restitution, and for the freedom of Palestinian People.
