Why Do Palestine Youth Attack Powerful Israeli Army?

Cool guys, Israeli terrorists
Israeli fascist regime is insane and wants to keep the Palestinians in the
terrorization status. Efrati was even more confused. The officer took pity,
and explained: ''If we go into their houses all the time, if you arrest people
all the time, if they feel terrified all the time, they will never attack us.
They will only feel chased after.'' That, Efrati said, ''was the first time I
understood that everything I was told was complete bullshit.'' From then on,
he said, ''I didn't stop doing the things I did, I just stopped thinking.''
Of course Efrati's officer was wrong. If you terrorize people long enough,
they eventually lose their fear. They hold onto the anger. This last October,
after a year of relative calm, young Palestinians began attacking Israeli
soldiers, police and civilians, occasionally with guns or cars but most often
with household implements: knives, scissors, screwdrivers. The attacks were
uncoordinated and outside the control of the Palestinian leadership or the
traditional armed factions.
Many such reactions from Palestinians occurred in or near Hebron, often at
checkpoints or other sites of friction between Palestinian civilians and the
Israeli military, but also on buses and trains in Jerusalem, in supermarkets
and in the streets.
Israeli military and police ransack Palestine territories with perpetual
terrorization of peole on permanent basis.
World powers do not make any genuine steps to teach a bloody lesson to
fanatically fascist Israel which also advices those countries like India
purchasing terror goods from Tel Aviv depots to follow the terror footsteps of
Israeli military in Palestine territories.
Terrorization of people by midnight knocks.
Why do Palestine youth attack powerful Israeli army?
Will any one, individual or nation, fight against powerful nations? Certainly
not, unless out of mere insanity. But Palestinians are facing dirtiest attacks
from Israel, made powerful by USA and NATO, and also fighting the one of the
dirtiest militaries in third world whose terror goods are being brought across
the globe including India. .
Israel possesses not only illegal nukes but also strongest military terror
equipment with regular updates from the world's most powerful military called
the Pentagon. Any nation, including Russia, is scared of the pentagon and CIA.
Every power in West Asia fears Israeli military might. But the powerless and
defenseless Palestinians are not afraid of it and fights against its illegal
occupation of Palestine lands and its expansionist-murder strategy by
sacrificing their own valuable lives.
Continued occupation crimes of Israeli military forces against the besieged
Palestinians force the Palestinians to retaliate to Zionist attacks with small
In November, Major General Herzl Halev, Israel's highest ranking military
intelligence officer, explained to PM B. Netanyahu's cabinet that the
Palestinian attacks were not primarily ideological. They were motivated by
rage and frustration and carried out by youth—mainly teenagers—who ''felt they
had nothing to lose.'' In fact, they had a great deal to lose, as much as
anyone, their whole lives ahead of them. But the fact that so many were
willing to throw it away, and to take others with them, testifies to the
depths of the despair bred by Israel's occupation.
Until Wednesday's shootings, only Palestinians got killed and no Israelis had
been killed by Palestinians since February 18. In the same period, Israeli
security forces killed 34 Palestinians, including a six-year-old girl and her
10-year-old brother who died when an air strike hit their family's home in the
Gaza Strip. Their names were Israa and Yasin Abu Khussa.
Such Israeli murders rarely make headlines here, but Palestinians are well
aware of them. So long as they continue, and the occupation drags on, world
can expect many more opportunities to grieve. That is exactly what Netanyahu
and his government continued to do.
Fifty years into Israel's occupation of the West Bank, Israel's government is
continuing its ''preemptive and predetermined'' territorial changes and a
policy of clandestine ethnic cleansing in what the Oslo Accords designated as
Area C, which constitutes over 60 percent of the West Bank. As for the USA,
the mischievous mediator for peace talks, it continues to pretend it believes
Netanyahu's claim that he is seeking a two-state solution, and continues to
assure Israel that it will not allow ''any daylight''—and any Security Council
resolutions—to come between the USA and Israel.
American regime shields the Zionist crimes by misusing its veto on UNSC.
If in fact world no longer believes Netanyahu's lies, his two state theory,
then its tendency of ''balancing'' even the mildest reproaches of Israel's
never-ending occupation with condemnations of Palestinian incitement is
particularly reprehensible. Whatever the Palestinian Authority may be guilty
of by delaying to file cases against Israeli crimes, it pales into
insignificance when compared to the incitement that is Israel's half-century
long fascist occupation.
Zionist fascism in Palestine functions as a massive mechanism for the creation
of uncertainty, dispossession and systematic humiliation. It is not just
soldiers and guns, but a far-reaching structure that affects all aspects of
Palestinian life—a complex web of check points, travel restrictions, permits,
walls and fences, courts and prisons, endless constraints on economic
possibilities, home demolitions, land appropriations, expropriations of
natural resources, and, too often lethal force.
Neither the USA nor the UNSC nor the Quartet's diplomacy has the slightest
prospect of changing the status quo that Netanyahu has so successfully
entrenched if they cannot screw up the courage to state straightforwardly the
truth—that Israel's half-century long occupation and genocides not only
incites to violence but itself constitutes violence incarnate on a massive
scale. The injection of such truthfulness might perhaps help flush the
diplomatic channels that have for so long been clogged by pretense and
dishonesty, indirectly supporting Zionist fascism.
