These Two Short Videos from B’Tselem Explains More About the Cruelty and Racism of Zionism than a Million Words
Terrorising Children and a Bedouin Shepherd in the Jordan Valley – This is Starmer’s ‘Rumbustious Democracy’
They say every picture tells a story. Well these videos sum up the vicious racism and sadistic cruelty of Israel’s settler colonial regime. In the Jordan Valley in Area C where Israel is intent on driving out the Palestinians, schools, COVID clinics and any form of building structures, including schools, are regularly demolished.
Here we see how the life of a Palestinian shepherd is made hell by a combination of the Israeli army and the settlers. Areas are arbitrarily made into military ‘closed zones’ a device for then transferring to the land to the settlers.
What Israel is doing is transforming the Palestinians into landless labourers for the benefit of the agribusinesses in the area.
In the second video we see the routine harassment of the civilian population by an army which uses raids on houses in the early hours of the morning, to terrorise the inhabitants.
Waking and forcing children out of bed with guns is standard Zionist practice. But criticise it and racists like Starmer and Nandy call you ‘anti-Semitic’.
This is a terrible situation. Those who speak out for justice are branded as racists. The Labour Party has become the “Friends of terrorists” party!
