The 1967-war revisited, Part II By Khalid Amayreh
Although I am fully aware of the numerous holocausts in Palestine since 1948 and even before, I have been appalled by Zionist unprecedented crimes ever occurred in human history, Khalid wrote, as a witness in his two-part article.
I just hope President Obama could read the article. Since President Obama doesn't like anyone to deny the Nazi - European Holocaust, why have US consecutive administrations, including his own, never criticized the holocausts committed by Zionists in Palestine over the past 61 years and more, including Gaza earlier this year?
Isn't such an act a denial in itself?
Why should Palestinians pay for somebody else's mistakes?
Hitler was not an Arab or A Muslim. He was an Austrian-German-European Nazi. I understood from Obama's speech that, because Jews were subjected to Hitler's and Nazi Europe's ordeal, they shouldn't be resisted in the land they grabbed from the land owners, the Palestinian people!
A very illogical thing to take in!Ali Al-Hail
