There are so many attempts here to defend the indefensible and they all arise from the same source: Israelis live the enormous lie that they are not occupiers and colonisers. Everything arises from the fact that Israel was established on Palestinian land and that Palestinians were dispossessed and murdered to that end and have been occupied and continued to be murdered and dispossessed so Israel can maintain its colonisation. All occupied and colonised peoples resist occupation and colonisation; it is in fact their human right. One may debate the level of violence they use but they have every right to fight against occupation and colonisation. Israel has no right at all to maintain its occupation and colonisation of Palestine. All blood is on Israel's hands because Israel has all the power and could right this wrong in an instant. Israelis living the lie may not admit to this clear truth but the world at large, particularly since Gaza ... Israel's Sharpeville.... sees it very clearly indeed. The more Israelis try to defend their human rights abuses and war crimes the more they debase themselves and their country and the more certain they make a One State solution.
