Zaynab's Story - A Call To Boycott Israel
Report Abuse/Infringement 1 Seeds 1 Leechers221.21 MB
Zaynab's Story explores the connection between an ordinary person living in Britain and what is happening in Palestine - how our actions as consumers in this country effects what happens to the Palestinians.
It's a heart wrenching video which exposes the brutality of the occupation as it touches the lives of ordinary people in Palestine. It then traces exactly how our buying habits help sustain this occupation, and ends by exploring ways in which we can start supporting the Palestinians. The boycott of Israeli dates forms its central theme.
I will download this and watch it as I know Israel does not have a stranglehold on the truth. But, historical revisionism also has little or no hold on the truth.
There is loss and sadness, and even death meted out on individuals. But again, this is not all Israel’s fault.
For the most part the Palestinian story is a myth, a dream, a wishful thinking lie.
Real, not revisionist, history proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Jews have been f****d over again and again for more than two thousand five hundred years over this sliver of land.
The Palestinian National Narrative as such didn't even start until the 1990s.
Approximately 700,000 Palestinian Arabs became refugees after the surrounding ARAB nations attacked the nascent nation of Israel in 1948. They did not become so because of Jewish desires. It was the attacking Arabs intransigence which forced refugee status upon the future Palestinians. At that time Israel wanted them to remain in their homes, to continue to be friends and neighbors, employers and employees. This so called "Nakba" only came about because of the total unwillingness of the Arabs to compromise, and the Arab storytelling which then became revisionist history – not the truth.
A state which remains to this very day.
If you truly desire peace then all you good people in England should focus your BDS efforts on the Arabs which might force them back into actual honest negotiations.
I do realize that in England there is this romanticism associated with Arabs and their stories. Getting past that may be difficult. but if you desire honesty, and true peace, you will get over your romanticized notions and become honest brokers of peace. Once that is done you will realize that Israel actually does seek peace, but she has no partner.
