95. Zionism  wants Israel to be a Jewish state; a state for the Jewish people only. However at the same time it claims to be a 'democracy'. An exclusively Jewish state and at the same time claiming to be a democracy is a contradiction in terms and hence by definition can never be a democratic society. A true democracy is a multicultural society, with equal rights for all its citizens, regardless of creed, race, gender or ethnic origin. In a democracy anyone can be a member or candidate for any of the country's political parties. Not so in Israel where one has to be a Jew in order to be a member or qualify to be elected for a particular political party. In a democracy no matter whether one is a Catholic, African, Protestant, China man, Muslim, Moroccan or Buddhist anyone can vote or stand as a candidate for the party of his choice as long as he or she is a national of that state. In order to give Israel some semblance of a democracy the Zionists will argue that there is an Arab 'party' sitting in the Knesset representing the Arab population of Israel. This is sheer deception and window dressing, because these so called parties have no voice and are not included in any key-decision making positions or committees as they would have in a real democracy.  Moreover only 20% of the original native Arabs are allowed to live in Israel and although Israel since its foundation in 1948 added by conquest almost another 40%  either de facto or actually to its territory, none of the other native Arabs of former Palestine that were forcibly driven from their land, have been given legal democratic rights; remain stateless and have been living for the last 45/60 years in appalling conditions in huge refugee camps in the West bank and Gaza and beyond, in complete violation by Israel of all UN resolutions and the Geneva Convention. These Palestinians are refused to return to their native country. In a democratic state as we know it in the rest of the world, these people would have been given the right to return to their country of origin and eligible to vote. Purely for demographic reasons Zionism keeps the number of Arab/Palestinians to vote round approximately 20% so as to preserve its Jewish identity. In a democracy no one is forced to sign declarations of allegiance to the State and in a democracy people of different faith and ethnic origins can marry each other. In Israel an Arab cannot marry a Jew or vise verse.. Only Jews can become citizens of the Zionist state. Israel fakes to be a 'democracy', but could never be accepted as a member of the European Union for the reasons listed here or for that matter the 51st State of the United States (because it would be against the American Constitution).

93. Ghandi was not unsympathetic with the Jews He calls them the 'untouchables' of Christianity and compares it with the treatment of Hindus. Religious sanctions has been invoked in both cases for the justification of the inhuman treatment meted out to them. "But  (so he continued), "my sympathies (with the Jewish people) does not blind me to the requirements of Justice. The cry for the national home for the Jews does not make much appeal to me. The sanctions for it is sought in the Bible and the tenacity with which the Jews have hankered after return to Palestine. Why should they not, like other peoples of the earth, make that country their home where they are born and where they earn their livelihood ? Palestine belongs to the Arabs in the same sense that England belongs to the English or France to the French It is wrong an inhuman to impose the Jews on the Arabs. What is going on in Palestine to-day cannot be justified by any moral code of conduct. The mandates have no sanction but of the last war. Surely it would be a crime against humanity to reduce the proud Arabs so that Palestine can be restored to the Jews partly or wholly as their national home. The nobler course would be to insist on a just treatment of the Jews wherever they are born and bred.. The Jews of France are French in precisely the same sense that Christians born in France are French. If the Jews have no home but Palestine, will they relish the idea of being forced to leave the other parts of the world in which they are settled ? Or do they want a double home where they can remain at will ? This cry for the national home affords a colorable justification for the German expulsion of the Jews....And now a word to the Jews in Palestine. I have no doubt that they are going about it the wrong way. The Palestine of the Biblical conception is not a geographical tract. It is in their hearts. But if they must look to the Palestine geography as their national home, it is wrong to enter it under the shadow of the British gun. A religious act cannot be performed with the aid of a bayonet or the bomb. They can settle in Palestrina only by the goodwill of the Arabs. They should seek to convert the Arab heart."

Martin Luther King, Jr had this to say on the tripartite (France/Britain/Israel) attack on Egypt at the time when Nasser ruled that country:
"I have been keeping up with the situation in Egypt, and as you know this is one of the most important issues in the world to-day. It will determine whether we live in peace or whether we will die in war. naturally my sympathies are with Egypt, rather than with the Western Colonial and imperial powers"


92. 'Winds of change' are blowing through the Arab world.  Puppet, quisling dictatorships, all client state of the United States are tumbling one after the other like dominoes. Unrest has already been reported in Jordan and Yemen as well and Lebanon's Hezbollah is strengthening its grip on the country. Iraq is still in turmoil with the Shi-ite majority demanding the withdrawal of US troops from the country.  It had to happen sometime and it may indeed take years for these countries to recuperate from these upheavals. it will certainly not mean pie in the sky for a long time to come.. But once the US/Israeli one sided balance of power in the region has shifted, there might eventually be progress.  However, meanwhile there are still grave dangers lurking. The US/Israeli alliance will not take these changes lying down. Israel, since its very inception, is known to have provoked border incidents, skirmishes and worse wars in the region. I am sure they will not accept the the GAZA blockade to be broken, which could well be on the cards with a new Egyptian government and they will fight tooth and nail to keep the long suffering people of Gaza imprisoned.
