The people of Palestine have been engaged in a courageous battle for their right to be since WWII. Following the war, the Anglo-U.S. imperialists decided to form a Zionist colonial entity in Palestine as a military base to strengthen their empire in West Asia and North Africa. The imperialist front provided arms, other assets and displaced people from Europe to occupy Palestine and force out the indigenous Palestinians from much of their land.

Using overwhelming military power, money and people supplied by Anglo-U.S. imperialism, a Zionist colonial entity occupied Palestine and negated the Palestinian people’s right to be. The Zionist colonial entity’s right to exist and defend itself has required the negation of the right to be of the Palestinian people, the theft of their land, their suppression and brutalization, and the continuing military occupation of Palestine.

Within occupied Palestine, one of the enclaves, reserves or ghettoes where the Palestinians have been forced to exist is a small strip of land called Gaza. The Zionist colonial entity has isolated the Gaza Strip within occupied Palestine and blockaded it from any contact, trade or other normal activity with other areas of occupied Palestine and the outside world.

The Palestinian people of Gaza and throughout occupied Palestine have never accepted their negation and have consistently fought for their right to be. Their heroic resistance against a powerful military machine backed by the U.S.-led imperialist system of states has gained their people respect and a special place of honour within humanity. Their leadership throughout the long resistance, including the current Hamas movement as the governing political force in Gaza, has sworn that their struggle will continue until Palestine is free from occupation and the people’s right to be blossoms and is assured.

The peoples of the world should reject with contempt the slanders and disinformation of the U.S.-led imperialist system of states against the Palestinian resistance to the Zionist colonial entity. The monopoly media and political representatives in power and in official opposition within the U.S.-led imperialist system of states have never dealt seriously with the demands and program of the Palestinian resistance and its political representatives such as Hamas or allowed their views to be widely discussed objectively amongst the polity. They have reduced the Palestinian political and resistance organizations and their programs to epithets such as terrorists, and for purely propaganda purposes characterize as anti-Semitic the people’s refusal to recognize and accept occupation of Palestine by the Zionist colonial entity.

The imperialists consider their disinformation and slander justification for the continued slaughter of Palestinians and the occupation of their homeland. On the contrary, to denigrate the Palestinians’ fight for their right to be and against the occupation of their homeland is unacceptable and a crime against humanity. The political and mass media conciliation with the fascism and militarism of the Zionist colonial entity and its special role as an imperialist military base in West Asia and North Africa to threaten the people and inhibit their movements for change towards the new is a gross insult to all peoples. Resistance to oppression and occupation is a right and people everywhere should provide the Palestinian resistance as much assistance as possible and completely isolate the Zionist colonial entity from all international affairs.

As the great Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat proclaimed at the United Nations, Zionism is racism and has no place in modern society. As long as Palestine is occupied and the people’s right to be denied, all humanity is sullied and dragged down by such a retrogressive and dangerous state of affairs.

Such it was with the German Nazi warmongers and their occupation of other people’s lands and destruction of their right to be prior to and during WWII. Only resistance to and destruction of the German Nazi state would allow humanity to assert its rights and cast off the humiliation, state-organized terror and degradation of living under fascism and militarism. Conciliation with fascism and militarism was an enormous crime at that time just as it is today. This great humanity can assert itself and break with all vestiges of medievalism and colonialism by casting off the old and building the new.

All out to support the victory of the Palestinian people in smashing the blockade of Gaza, ending the occupation of their homeland and affirming their right to be!

Down with the murderous Zionist colonial entity and its imperialist backers, collaborators and conciliators!

Long live the Palestinian Resistance and Free Palestine!
