‘Natural life’ for all

The Spokesman-Review

President Obama called for a freeze in the building up of illegal settlements in occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank. Prime Minster Netanyahu rejected the freeze, arguing that “stopping all construction would unjustly disrupt ‘natural life’ in growing settler communities” (“Israel planning more building on West Bank,” Sept. 5).

The blockaded and concentrated Palestinians of Gaza, East Jerusalem and the West Bank aspire to a “natural life.” After all, they are human beings. For Israel, however, this counts for nothing.

The Zionist project is predicated on the exclusion and the destruction of the Palestinians. It always was.

Isn’t 61 years already far too long? Please support the global movement targeting Israel with boycotts, divestment, sanctions and prosecutions for war crimes and crimes against humanity.
