Until the web of deceit no longer informs . . .

My comment at the Guardian's CIF:

Michael Bournemouth is in denial to avoid facing the gross injustice for the Palestinian people, culture, and society that Zionism continues to effect. Zionists continue in their attempts to erase Palestinian history, most cruelly effected and manifest by their destruction of 531 Palestinian villages in 1947-48. Diehards, while making themselves look unabashedly silly to those with a modicum of knowledge, continue to proclaim that the Palestinians have only lived in Palestine for three generations . . . write that Palestine was "a land without a people for a people without a land"; say publicly, as did Milwaukee native Golda Meir, that there is no such thing as a Palestinian; laud the plucky Zionists for making the "desert bloom"; demonise Palestinians as people who are solely motivated out of some intrinsic hatred for Jews and demonise Palestinian parents by perpetuating the lie that we bring up our children to hate. . . deny all you want; this is a long, long struggle, and many of us in different ways, are prepared to continue, until the web of deceit no longer informs public consciousness.

U,
I thought you might be interested in the 'Scottish Medicines for Gaza' mission which is currently being prevented from entering Gaza and is sitting at the Rafah Crossing Point as I type.

Medical supplies from Scotland to Gaza refused entry by Egyptian authorities
Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign

A van full of medical supplies has been driven from Edinburgh all the way to Gaza by Linda and Kahlil, a Scottish-Palestinian couple.

I, myself, have already sent them a messege of support and emailed the Egyptian Consulate and Press Officer, as well as my own British Member of Parliament and my own Member for the Scottish Parliament regarding the Egyptian obstruction of this humanitarian mission.

The SPSC has emailed to say that Linda and Kahlil are deterimined to get through!

all the best U!

While the slimy UK Prime Minister is in the Knesset giving speeches about how brilliant his favourite racist supremist state is, the devolved Scottish Government is Edinburgh is trying to help the victims of the UK, US EU and Egypt.

If the Scotland can do it, then why can't the rest of the EU countries do it?
 
Thanks for the updates and thanks to Scotland.
