let’s say it yet again.

Yes. Say it again. and Again. and Again.
And remember who is saying it.

The elected president of the United Nations General Assembly. Father Miguel d’Escoto.
At international conferences he – not the secretary-general – represents the UN’s 192 member states.
The UN General Assembly president ranks higher than the secretary-general in the UN totem pole.

He said: “What is being done to the Palestinian people seems to me to be a version of the hideous policy of apartheid.” Addressing the Assembly last week, d’Escoto pointed out that it has been 60 years since some 800,000 Palestinians were driven out of their homes and property, becoming refugees and an uprooted and marginalised people.

Apartheid. and Occupation.

Those are the issues.

  1. yes! and let’s use these words to work to rescind the zionist regime’s un membership:

  2. words are sadly not nearly enough to solve this atrocious conflict. instead i think the Arabs, and the Palestinians should be the Israelis / Zionists at their own game.
    One fundamental thing would be for us to use the media as cleverly or more so than they do.
    Moreover, i think that covert subversive action is more efficient than the heroic stereotype of the “atfal el hijara”
    finally and in the longer run, the healthier Lebanon is, the more leverage we get in this conflict because we are the only country able to compete with the Israelis over their sources of income. An example, just before they bombed Beirut in 2006, the port here was starting to overtake their own, in traffic as well as in cash flow.
