Injustice and the usurpation of the lands of others cannot last forever, and sooner or later, despite the excessive use of force and bloodshed, tyranny will terminate and the occupiers will no longer be able to survive.

The following is a Viewpoint Column that appeared in this regard on Wednesday May 15 in Iran’s English language daily ‘Kayhan International’, titled: “Beginning of the End of Illegitimate Israel”, on the anniversary of the Day of Nakba when the Palestinians were made stateless by mass expulsions from their homeland by the illegal Zionist migrants from Eastern Europe.

Kayhan International wrote: “Yesterday May 14 was that ominous day in modern history when over a quarter century of the rape of Palestine by its British occupiers and the thousands of east European non-Israelite and non-Semitic Khazar Jews it had illegally brought to this Muslim Arab land, resulted in the illegitimate birth of the Zionist entity in 1948.

“Today May 15 is the 71st anniversary of “Yowm an-Nakba” or the Day of Catastrophe that followed when gangs of Zionist terrorists, went on rampage against the sons of the soil, to kill hundreds of Muslim and Christian Palestinians, and to drive into exile around 800,000 men, women, and children.

“The victorious powers of World War 2, by exploiting the United Nations which they had set up in 1945 to rule the world, recognized the bastard called ‘Israel’ as a state, while not a single tear was shed for the Palestinians uprooted from their centuries-old homes and hearths and made to live as ‘undesirable’ refugees in the squalid camps of neighbouring countries.

“All this was done on the basis of the myth of the holocaust supposed to have been perpetrated by the German Nazis who allegedly burnt in gas chambers six million Jews, when the fact of the matter is that the total number of Jews in Europe (Russia included), never numbered more than three million on the eve of the Second World War.

“The questions that arise are: Why were the Palestinians made to pay for a still unproven crime in faraway Europe in which they had no part?

“Why wasn’t Jewry founded on the soil of Germany, if Adolf Hitler had carried out the supposed holocaust? 

“Why do the UN and the godfathers of Israel continue to turn a blind eye to the plight of the Palestinians and to the almost daily injustice, crimes, imprisonment, torture, killings, seizure of lands, aerial and artillery bombardment, and other acts of terrorism to which this hapless nation is subjected by the racist Zionist regime?”

Kayhan International said: “Indeed, there are no plausible answers to these and related questions posed by the conscientious, including those in Europe, the Americas, China, Japan, and India.

“What answers would be given when the goal of the West was to have a foothold in the Levant, ever since the final defeat of the Crusades in the 14th century.

“This means, the Nakba actually began in 1799 when French general, Napoleon Bonaparte, after subjugating Egypt, attempted to advance into Palestine by calling on the Jews of the world to join France in establishing a Jewish state.

“Outside the walls of Acre, as his army besieged the city, Napoleon issued a letter offering Palestine to the Jews as a homeland under France’s protection. He was, however, defeated by the Ottoman Turks and forced to flee.

“In Israeli occupied Acre today, the only memory of Napoleon is a statue atop a hill overlooking the city, yet his plot to seize Palestine was kept alive by archrival, Britain, whose prime minister, Henry Campbell Bannerman, called in 1907 for breaking up of the tottering Ottoman Empire by seizing Palestine to serve as a land bridge to the Red Sea for a link with London’s colonial empire in the Subcontinent.

“A decade later in 1917, after defeating the Ottomans in World War 1, Britain occupied Palestine and issued the infamous Balfour Declaration calling for a homeland for European Jews in the heart of the Muslim World.

“Soon with the setting up of the League of Nations, London legitimized its illegal occupation of Palestine as mandate territory and began to settle in this Muslim land, tens of thousands of Zionists, as the non-Israelite and non-Semitic Khazar converts to Judaism were known.

“The result was revolts against Britain, such as the uprising of Ezzed od-Din Qassam in the 1930s. In retaliation, the British armed the Zionists and encouraged them to set up terrorist outfits, such as the Irgun, Hagganah and Stern gangs, for murdering Palestinian men, women, and children, and looting their property.”

Kayhan International pointed out: “On Britain’s decline, the US took over custodianship of Israel, the illegitimate brat, supplying it with state-of-the-art military technology and helping it to become a nuclear weapons power, but deceiving the Palestinians all the time by talking vaguely of a ‘peaceful’ solution, which was never the intention of Washington.

“In view of these facts, what the thuggish US president, Donald Trump, intends through such devilish acts as relocating the US embassy to the occupied Islamic city of Bayt al-Moqaddas by calling it capital of Israel and enforcing the so-called ‘deal of the century’ drawn by his Jewish son-in-law Jared Kushner, is to brazenly tell the Palestinians, especially in Gaza and the West Bank of River Jordan.

“He means to say in his usual arrogantly ignorant manner: Look you are nothing and have no identity, other than being slaves of Israel. If you do not stop dreaming of return to your ancestral homes, you will be subjected to wars, bloodshed and possible genocide to wipe you out for good.

“It is now up to the persecuted Palestinians, including the over 7 million in the neighbouring Arab states, to think of a real solution to their 7-decades of plight.

“True, many still have keys of the now destroyed original homes of grandparents and have not lost hope of justice for returning one day to Haifa, Ascalon, Nazareth, Jaffa, Haifa, etc., but this requires the will for armed struggle against the Zionists and not any of those deceptive negotiations that have only worsened the plight.”

As noted by Kayhan International: “It is wrong to think the UN or the US will have a sudden change of heart to hold a democratic referendum for a single state solution for peaceful transfer of Israel and the Israelis to somewhere in Europe or North America.

“Only eradication of this cancerous tumour, as was suggested by the Father of the Islamic Revolution, Imam Khomeini (RA), who also institutionalized the Last Friday of the Blessed Month of Ramadhan as “Word Qods Day” in order mobilize the Ummah for liberation of Islam’s former Qibla, will resolve this chronic issue. 

“There is no need for despair. If the 88-year illegal existence of the Crusader Kingdom of Jerusalem could vanish in 1187 – thanks to the coordinated efforts of the Kurdish cavalry, Turkish archers, Arab foot soldiers, and Iranian sappers who mined the walls of the city – all signs on the horizon indicate that Israel may not be that lucky to prolong its existence into the next decade.

“Insha Allah (God Willing), as predicted by the Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, the Zionist implant will soon vanish from the map of the world.”
