Danny Wakil isn’t fooling anyone (Letters, 15 June). He is obviously pro-Israel, but his tone and talking points belie his claim to be pro-Palestinian, or pro-peace, unless by peace he means oppressed by apartheid. He seems to have no comprehension of the suffering and despair the Zionist project has inflicted on the Palestinian people.
It’s typical of Zionist partisans to blame the Palestinians for everything and claim victim status for the Jewish State, but the indisputable truth is just the opposite. With an arrogant air of entitlement, Zionists like to claim they have a right to take Palestine from the Palestinians because god promised it to them. But there’s no factual basis to their claim. God isn’t a real estate agent.
In 1948, European Zionist Jews had no right to invade and occupy Palestine, they had no right to terrorise Palestinians into exile and steal their land. Nor did the United Nations have the right or the authority to give Palestine to the Zionist invaders. The Zionists took Palestine by force, in violation of international laws applicable at the time.
The notion that Zionist Israel has a right to exist is a canard that has been ruthlessly and relentlessly promulgated ever since.
