Friends of Israel ‘prove’ that ‘there is no such thing as Palestine’ by chemically
removing all mention of it!
It is unbelievable the lengths to which the racists of the Zionist movement will go to rewrite history – they even use powerful chemicals to help them!!

I have had a number of queries about my allegation that Sussex Friends of Israel are responsible for this outrage.  Let me explain.

i.  SFI is the main organisational vehicle of extreme racist Zionism in Brighton & Hove.  They have been mistaken in the past for supporters of the EDL.

ii.  They bear direct political responsibility and in my view organisational responsibility for what has happened.

iii.  I can remember arguing with many of their leading supporters, e.g. a bearded Christian fundamentalist called James who screamed at me that there were no Palestinians, just Arabs.  His argument was that there has never been a Palestinian state, it’s all a fiction.  It doesn’t take much of a leap from this kind of genocidal talk to erasing mention of Palestine from a war memorial.

iv.  There are no other culprits and if this were Israel then mere suspicion or even an algorithmic likelihood would  be enough for a Palestinian to be detained.

One of the main characteristics of any settler-colonial society is the
desire to destroy any trace of previous indigenous civilisations or societies.  When Zimbabwe was still called Rhodesia, the
white colonists decried all mention of the ruins of
. When
the Whites colonised South Africa they created the myth that the land had been
empty before they arrived.  It was their
presence which attracted Black people. 
Likewise in Australia the settlers used the term ‘terra nullis’ (empty land). 
Palestine was no different.  The ‘socialist’
Zionist settlers believed that Palestine was a ‘land without a people for a people without a land.’

hate the very name ‘Palestine’. The indigenous population are ‘Arabs’ not
Palestinians. For Zionist supporters there is no such thing as Palestine.  One of the most oft-repeated questions they
ask is ‘When was there a Palestinian state’? 
Palestine is a recent invention they argue.
course this is very difficult to sustain given the name Palestine was in
existence from Roman times.  Indeed the
term goes back even further. Use of the term ‘Palestine’ dates from the 5th
century BC.  Anyone who doubts this
should read the article Timeline of the name “Palestine”.
Sussex Friends of Israel supporters have no sense of respect for the soldiers who died in the Great War as it was called.  All that matters to their racist mentality is to erase all mention of the Palestinian presence.  That of course was the Nazi attitude to Jewish history – to destroy all traces of it
Brighton and Hove’s Zionists, congregated
around Sussex Friends of Israel are a particularly racist neanderthal lot.  Containing as they do a large number of
Christian fundamentalists they vehemently deny that there is any such things as
the Palestinians.  In their time they
even invited to address them one Mordechai Kedar, an ‘academic’ from Bar Ilan
University and a Professor who advocated the use of rape as a weapon of
war.  Because rape was so shaming in
Palestinian society the mere threat of it would deter ‘terrorism’.  Kedar spoke at the local Jewish community hall, Ralli Hall.  Although the trustees of Ralli Hall were happy to have an advocate of rape address them they banned the Labour Party for ‘antisemitism’.
It would however seem that in order to ‘prove’
that there is no such thing as Palestine one or more Zionist vandals took to
using a chemical to erase the words Palestine on the local war memorial to the dead in World War One in Brighton’s Old Steine. In
1917 in the First World War Britain captured, under General Allenby, the area
known as Palestine.  For 30 years the
British ran the Mandate of Palestine (not the Mandate of Israel!). There was
even a Palestinian citizenship and many Zionists such as Shimon Peres
became citizens of Palestine before they became citizens of Israel.  Even the Zionist paper, the Jerusalem Post, in the days before it
became a right-wing rag under Conrad Black, was named Palestine Post.
If the Zionist vandal had consulted the programmatic
pamphlet The Jewish State of Theodor
Herzl, who was the founder of the Zionist movement, t s/he would have learnt
that when he argued for a Jewish state Herzl was torn between forming  state in Argentina or Palestine.  The latter eventually won out.
You can see how old this statue is because it refers to Mesopotamia, present day Iraq.   But the Zionist vandals from Sussex Friends of Israel have no regard to history or facts – history is what they rewrite
However the act of vandalism is an important
sign of the mentality of today’s Zionists. 
They seriously believe that they can rewrite history by eradicating
evidence that there always was a Palestine. 
Pathetic as it is it is an important and useful demonstration of the
mindset of Zionism, which in its determination to erase Palestinian existence
is a genocidal movement as per the United Nations definition.
