Palestine needs solidarity in the face of Israeli genocide

Last March 30 was the 47th anniversary of the brutal massacre carried out by the Zionist regime against the Palestinian people, from whom hundreds of innocent lives have been taken and an important part of their territory usurped, after the approval of the State of Israel on May 14, 1948.

From the very beginning of the Israeli state, the Zionist policy of expansion and extermination against Palestine was born, regardless of the means. As a result, in 1967 the Palestinian society carried out a general strike with 21 thousand dunums, inhabitants in the north of historic Palestine, to which Israel responded with a repression that turned into a genocide.

Over half of the Palestinian Arab population fled or were expelled. Jordan and Egypt controlled the rest of the territory assigned by resolution 181 to the Arab State. In the 1967 war, Israel occupied these territories (Gaza Strip and the West Bank) including East Jerusalem, which was subsequently annexed by Israel.

Neither the Palestinians nor the neighboring Arab countries accepted the founding of modern Israel. Fighting between Jewish armed groups, some of which the British regarded as terrorist organizations, and Palestinians escalated until the armies of Egypt, Iraq, Transjordan and Syria invaded after Israel declared independence in May 1948.

However, there is no law that respects Israel, no UN determination, no calls from human rights organizations, no voices of condemnation to limit the bloodthirsty actions of the Zionist entity. An Israel that continues to steal Palestinian lands, to massacre its population, demolishing houses, destroying crops, preventing cultural expression, drowning Palestine day by day with the endorsement of a world that blind, deaf and mute, does not stand up to its crimes.

In 1967, Israel launched what it said was a pre-emptive defensive war against Jordan, Egypt and Syria, as they appeared to be preparing to invade. The attack caught Arab governments by surprise and saw Israel achieve rapid victories including seizing the Sinai peninsula and the Gaza Strip from Egypt, the Golan Heights from Syria, and the West Bank and East Jerusalem from Jordan.

The six-day war was a spectacular military success for Israel. Its capture of all of Jerusalem and newly acquired control over the biblical lands called Judea and Samaria in Israel opened the way to the construction of Jewish settlements in the West Bank, which became central to the conflict.

Today, murder and massacre continue without precedent in human history, each time with more sophisticated means aimed at mass extermination and destruction of urban infrastructures. It has raged against the inhabitants, mainly in the cities of Jenin and Nablus, but also in Gaza and Al Quds, generating a hundred murders: men, women and children. Crimes that do not cease, despite the deep political and social crisis that the Israeli infanticidal entity is experiencing, which has meant the mobilization of an important part of the Israeli population demanding the cessation of the processing of the proposed judicial reforms, presented by the administration of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his cabinet of extremists, aimed at weakening the judicial institutions and at the same time generating a shield of protection and impunity for the crimes committed by Netanyahu, accused of corruption, bribery and influence peddling.

The Israeli army killed 32,975 Palestinians and wounded 75,577 since the beginning of its offensive against the Gaza Strip on October 7, according to medical sources. The health authorities of the territory specified in their most recent report on the subject that most of the victims are women, the elderly and minors. They detailed that in the last 24 hours Israeli troops committed five massacres in the coastal enclave, killing 59 people and wounding 83 others.

For its part, the official Wafa news agency reported that dozens of people were killed and wounded in the coastal enclave this morning as a result of the bombardment by Israeli aviation and artillery. Five citizens were killed following the attack on several homes in the town of Khan Younis, and three more in a similar incident against the town of Deir al-Balah, located in the south and center of the Strip, respectively.

Numerous Palestinians were injured by Israeli rocket fire on the Gaza City neighborhoods of Sheikh Ajlin, Tal Al-Hawa and Al-Zaytoun, the news outlet reported.

Today the Palestinian people need the solidarity of governments, societies, of just men and women, to definitively destroy this pernicious Zionist toxin, which causes so much damage to humanity.
