With polls ahead of Thursday’s mayoral election putting George Galloway on no more than 1%, we could be witnessing the welcome political demise of a malignant racist.19:43 02.05.16 | 0 comments
I deeply regret the injustices done to the natives of this continent, but that was perpetrated hundreds of years ago, when it was considered natural to conquer and possess. Does not the conquest of Canaan by the Israelites fit into that pattern? We are supposed to have learned from the past. You cannot say that it is all right for Israel to occupy and colonise because Europeans once occupied and colonised. That is not a justification, you are only admitting that Israel is dong to Palestinians what Europeans did to aborigines all over the world. Yes, Zionism is colonialism, that is the term used by Herzl and Jabotinsky. Your other argument about the gas chambers and pogroms is also nul. Because Jews suffered in Europe, they were entitled to abuse Arabs, who had nothing to do with their suffering. And finally, I am a WWII survivor,my families lost everything to Soviets and Nazis, not a rag left, no compensation. I know what it is to be a refugee.
