Jews Will Soon Be Liberated from the Burden of Zionism


As evidence mounts of deliberate Nato and Israeli destabilisation of Syria, the hypocrisy of Cape Town's Zionist lobby in mourning the deaths of Palestinian refugees in Yarmouk refugee camp is truly revolting.

It seemingly does not occur to Sydney Kaye (Letters, December 19) that Palestinian refugees in Syria and elsewhere are refugees solely because Israeli settlers stole their land, and at gunpoint forced them to flee to neighbouring countries. Only 6 percent of Palestine was owned by Jews in 1946. In a glaring example of Israeli apartheid, over 90 percent is now restricted to Jewish occupation only. Even during the worst excesses of apartheid in South Africa, we never had an "apartheid wall" or "apartheid roads". The Israeli agenda in stealing land and water is to make life for Palestinians so impossible that they will "voluntarily" emigrate.

The notorious Balfour Declaration, which ostensibly gave Palestine as a "homeland" for the Jews, specifically declared that "nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine".

Quite clearly, that stipulation has not been fulfilled, and Zionism has forfeited whatever legitimacy it once claimed. The barbarity of the Holocaust in Europe during World War II was not resolved by stealing Palestinian land and illegally settling European Jews on it.

The Geneva Conventions and other instruments of international law confirm that these refugees, who number two thirds of the Palestinian population, have an indisputable right of return to their homeland.

The international community has recently and overwhelmingly approved Palestine observer status at the UN. The UN General Assembly has also called on Israel to join the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. The highly militarised Israeli state - equipped with 200-300 nuclear weapons and supported, at this point, by the US - is a menace to international peace and security. …
