Decades-Long Israeli Military Occupation Drives Palestinian Revenge Attacks (Video)

I think that this is what this attack has shown, is that while most of the political and militant leadership of the Palestinians has been assassinated in the last century, or is imprisoned, even though there isn’’t a way for Palestinians to actually unite because they’’re divided in bantustans all over the West Bank, in Gaza, and all over Israel, even though they are separated by a complex matrix of control of IDs and live under extreme discrimination inside of Israel, they will still continue to resist until they have freedom.

Glenn Greenwald: On the One-Year Anniversary of Israel’s Attack on Gaza | An Interview with Max Blumenthal

Never mind the ‘war on terror’ rhetoric, writes Nafeez Ahmed.
