As a long-time reader of Crescent International, an activist for Palestinian freedom, and a Jewish Holocaust survivor, I am concerned by the tone and content of Kevin Barrett’s article in your July 1 issue, “Who’s Backing Trump.”
Donald Trump has given the greenlight to Benjamin Netanyahu’s theft of more Palestinian land as if the ill-mannered American owns it. Informed observers have warned of dire consequences.
Unlike other countries, Iran and Palestine face two challenges: illegal sanctions and siege, and the coronavirus. Both have devasted their populations.
Donald Trump is desperate to get re-elected as US president in the November 2020 elections. Aware that he would need the support of the Israeli lobby in the US, he is willing to give them anything they want and then some. His so-called deal of the century is part of this plan but far from bringing peace, it will lead to more chaos and turmoil in the region.
All of these (are) from different backgrounds, different language groups, different madha’hibs (and) different religions and they are all the fiber of the Palestinian issue, which is the central issue of anyone who has an iota of Islamic commitment in their hearts and a fiber of Islamic thinking in their minds.
Based on our understanding of global events and their impact on the Muslim world, we identify certain trouble spots that are likely to remain in the news. We are not making predictions, merely analyzing trends that lead us to such conclusions.
Israel’s killing of Palestinians has become so routine that it hardly evokes a yawn. 300 unarmed Palestinian protesters have been killed and another 30,000 or more injured in Gaza since March 2018, but the Zionists intensified attacks on Gaza with missiles and bombs that killed another 34 and injured 110 others in two days last month.
How can Zionist Israel claim to be a democracy when it has imposed a tight siege of the tiny Gaza enclave where nearly two million people are held prisoners?
