The roar of the bombs dropped by the fourth most powerful army in the world is deafening as they hurtle from the sky towards the overcrowded civilian areas of the Gaza Strip in occupied Palestine. The roar about “human animals” directed by senior politicians in the Tel Aviv government at Palestinians cannot fail to be heard above the cries of the injured and dying in Gaza’s hospitals.
The roar for peace from outraged citizens shouting “from the river to the sea” has filled the streets of the Middle East, Pakistan, India and Malaysia across to the Far East, North and South America, the Caribbean and Europe. Pro-Palestinian crowds marched in their millions shouting for peace around towns, cities, villages and refugee camps.
Cries of “anti-Semitism” have, predictably, also followed, which is sad, because people are pretending not to know what “from the river to the sea” actually means; what are the crowds, and the Palestinians, calling for, ask journalists. I’ll tell you. It’s simple: Freedom for Palestinians who live between the River Jordan and the Mediterranean Sea. Freedom to live; freedom to move without hindrance; freedom to work likewise; and freedom to elect a government to decide who shall govern them, and how. What’s wrong with that? Why shouldn’t Palestinians live freely and without a brutal occupation army crushing their dreams and aspirations?
