A History of Zionism and The Palestine Conflict

The narrative that we are spoon-fed by Corporate Media isn’t aligned to reality. It’s actually pure propaganda that destroys lives. We are taught by many media outlets that this is a conflict regarding religion, however, conflict ensures that there is equal footing between both parties, which is obviously not the case. What we are witnessing is settler colonialism. We are witnessing Israel continue to wield the settler colonial violence that was so central to building the modern racial order

We are anti-Zionist and against the Zionist State of Israel. Zionism is a reactionary racist ideology that justifies the displacement of the indigenous population en masse by foreign settlers, mainly from Europe, who say they have the rights to the land because of their identity and their weaponry.

The U.S. has aided the Israeili military with over $3.8 billion a year since 2016. The US has also been funding the arrests, beatings, tear gas and skunk water attacks, home invasions, and more that Israeli forces have weaponized to intimidate peaceful protesters

War crimes are continuously committed by the Israel Defense Forces. The IDF has killed on average ~106 Palestinian children per year for the last 20 years. This is an empirical fact.

As Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. eloquently stated, "Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter." "In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends."

This is the time for allies/friends and pro-Palestinian activists to amplify the voices of the oppressed

Malcolm X on Zionism:

"Did the Zionists have the legal or moral right to invade Arab Palestine, uproot its Arab citizens from their homes and seize all Arab property for themselves just based on the "religious" claim that their forefathers lived there thousands of years ago?" (1)

Malcolm X on Zionism:

"Only a 1000 years ago Moors lived in Spain. Would this give the Moors of today the legal and moral right to invade and drive out citizens, set up a new nation where Spain used to be, as the Zionists have done to our brothers and sisters in Palestine?"(2)
Malcolm X on Zionism:

"In short the Zionist argument to justify Israel's present occupation of Arab Palestine has no intelligent or legal basis in history" (3)
