  • ‘Palestinian Gandhi’ convicted for protesting; US remains silent

    Common Dreams reports:

    Last week, an Israeli military court convicted Abdallah Abu Rahmah, whom progressive Zionists have called a “Palestinian Gandhi,” of “incitement” and “organizing and participating in illegal demonstrations” for organizing protests against the confiscation of Palestinian land by the “Apartheid Wall” in the village of Bilin in the West Bank, following an eight month trial, during which he was kept in prison.

    The European Union issued a protest. But as far as I am aware, no U.S. official has said anything and no U.S. newspaper columnist has denounced this act of repression; indeed, the U.S. press hasn’t even reported the news.

    Many of Israel’s ardent supporters keep demanding where peaceful Palestinians protesters are, and yet remain silent when this kind of stuff happens. More at the Guardian.

      Where is the Palestinian Ghandi? In an Israeli jail, of course! Nothing threatens Zionists more than non-violence. http://bit.ly/asmgie #fb

      Progressive Zionists sounds like a oxymoron.
