This may be a bit controversial. But, I’m going to tackle it anyway.
Here is an interesting article about injustice suffered by Palestinians by Eileen Fleming, if that is indeed her real name. It could be a pen name as many authors today use pen names.
There was one particular part of this article that caught my attention:
“Inside Israel there are still over one hundred Unrecognized Villages that over 100,000 Israeli Arab citizens call home. They pay taxes but receive NO services: NO electricity, NO water, NO schools, NO medical, NO roads and yet THEY PAY TAXES! “
That seemed very interesting to me. Though the rest of her article also talks about the unfair distribution of water whereby some Palestinians only get 75 ml of water per day while Israeli per capita use of water is around 350 ml per day.
Anyway, I would like to see some documentation about these villages where Israel collects taxes but does not provide the basics like water, schools, etc.
Seems to me that if such a situation does indeed exist, there should be ample proof of it. I’m a bit skeptical because she says that no water or electricity is provided. Well, didn’t they have water before the Israeli’s came along? I bet they did or the village would not be there.
So how far does this injustice really go? I’m willing to entertain the possibilities.
I once knew a gentleman who told me that is family ruled the West Bank for 100’s of years before the Israeli’s came. He had even been wounded in fighting with Israel.
He definitely expressed his outrage over the fact that America gave Israel so much money to have weapons that were used against the Palestinians.
Since he had become an American, I bet it burned him to know his own tax money goes towards the ‘defense’ of Israel. For a while he had a website that showed some horrible sufferings of the Palestinian people.
It appears that his site no longer exists.
Don’t get me wrong, there are two sides to every story and Israel has its own reasons for defending itself. Terrorist attacks fuel the desire of America to come to Israel’s aid financially.
On the other hand. Didn’t America use terror and guerilla tactics against the English Empire to win its freedom?
As the saying goes, one man’s freedom fighter is another man’s terrorist.
Does anyone out there have any information on this issue or other injustices that the Palestinian people may be facing?
Or on the contrary, does anyone have information about the injustices and devastation that the Israeli people are facing due to ‘terrorist’ acts.
