Palestinian Holocaust in the Holy Land

After the downfall of Nazi Germany, the German people "washed their hands" of any complicity in the Jewish extermination camps by pleading ignorance. Lower rank German soldiers excused themselves by saying that they were only following military orders. Today, in the Holy Land, the Zionist Jews, with the support of the majority of Israel's population are themselves perpetuating a holocaust against the Palestinian people. After the bodies are counted and the atrocities documented, how will the Jews excuse themselves for committing these crimes against humanity?

Presently, the suffering of the Palestinians is heartbreaking and should trouble the souls of every decent human being. The Israeli blockades and brutally enforced curfews are effectively stopping Palestinian bread winners from going to work. The bulldozing of Palestinian owned olive and other agricultural fields is having a horrific effect on the Palestinian people's ability to survive. The bulldozing of Palestinian homes by the Israeli military and police forces is throwing hundreds of families into the streets. It is collective punishment of a people and the murder of hundreds of Palestinian children and women is a policy of genocide!

The architect of the genocidal policies against the Palestinians is the newly elected Prime Minister Ariel Sharon or "The Butcher of Sabra and Chatila" as he is known in the middle east. He is known as the "Butcher" because, as an Israeli military officer and as a former Minister of Defense, he was responsible for a series of massacres of Palestinians that, in some cases, included the torture and rape of women and the disembowelment of Palestinian children. Some of the atrocities he has committed against innocent Palestinian families are much more horrific than any committed against the Jews by the Nazis. The world should demand that Ariel Sharon be tried as a "War Criminal" as was done with some of the Nazis after World War II. It is incredible that some Jews are now doing worse things to the Palestinians than the Nazis ever did to them. If there are any good Jews left in the world, they should speak out loudly against these atrocities.

Hopefully a courageous nation, possibly Mexico, will introduce a resolution before the United Nation's Commission on Human Rights to condemn Israel for its human right abuses of the Palestinian people. It is curious that the U.S. has proposed a resolution against Cuba but not one against Israel where real and despicable abuses are occurring every day. The military enforced closures that are sealing most Palestinian towns and villages is starving the people and it should be considered a human rights abuse of the worst kind.
