The word colony is now taboo.
From the beginning Herzl and his cohorts knew that the only way to take over Palestine was either by buying out the property; failing that effort take what they wanted by the sword, violent conquest.
Palestine was decided upon because of the sentimental Biblical connection. The end of the 19th century, Herzl and some 900 mostly newly formed zionist organizations began their organizing and plans. Yesterday I read an article about negotiations between Germany & Zionists regarding more cash for Jewish survivors of WWII. These demands for cash, tax payer cash, seem relentless.
Many people suffered during the 1930's & '40's, but most got little in the way of compensation. Many people have suffered; Japan, China, Russia, Cambodia, Viet Nam, Haiti, Panama, Bangladesh, Tibet and the gross attempt at genocide in Rwanda? Why are there no clever lawyers or cunning advocates to secure money for survivors of these and countless other victims of aggression?
How about the survivors of Iraq, the cradle of civilization? Afghanistan, graveyard of empires, Pakistan, Lebanon, Libya, Tunisa, Egypt where millions have been brutally slain by US/Nato aggression, who is negotiating for reparations for the murdrs & unwarranted aggression?
And of course Palestine, the Holy Land, land of peace and prophets. Why are there no museums dedicated to the memory of Nakba? We in USA saw the streets run red with blood, choked with the swollen, slain bodies that medics were thwarted from retrieving,they were eaten by dogs. We saw some of the terror in real time.
The showers of white phosphorus, the injuries that confounded doctors who were dealing with weapon such as dense inert metal explosives DIME that caused loss of limbs, and shrapnel so small the wounds were virtually untreatable.
I'll leave you with this song if I can get my link to work, have been having recent trouble, but here goes: Did not work, I'll update later if I can figure what the problemo is.
Yours in peace and hope for justice, Kate</i>
