Ilan Pappé: “The Zionist goal from the very beginning was to have as much of Palestine as possible with as few Palestinians in it as possible”

Ilan Pappe 1024x768 Ilan Pappé: The Zionist goal from the very beginning was to have as much of Palestine as possible with as few Palestinians in it as possible

Interesting section of an interview with scholar Ilan Pappe:

The Palestinians in Israel are discriminated on 3 levels. The first is legal. By law, the fact that you are Palestinian means that you have fewer rights than a Jew. The most important law in this regard is the law on land ownership. According to the Israeli law, the land in Israel belongs to the Jewish people and them only. As a non-Jew, you are not allowed to trade or to purchase land and we are talking about 93% of the land. That’s why the Palestinians can’t grow and expand within Israel. Other laws do not specifically talk about the Palestinians, this is an old Israeli trick. The law says that if you have not served in the army you cannot have full rights as a student for example. You won’t get student’s subsidies, health services allowances, social security et al. All those things that the Western countries try to give to their citizens come with the precondition of military service in Israel. It is a trick because the Israelis do not want the Palestinians to serve in the army, in fact they are not allowed even if they would want to. There is an exception when it comes to Orthodox Jews, they do not serve in the army but they are not discriminated because they have a special annex to the Israeli budget. The Orthodox Jews get the money that the state would have used if they would have served in the army. So, Israeli law speaks for itself because it says that if you are Palestinian, you are a second-class citizen.

The Guardian had an exclusive story on how South Africa negotiated the purchase of nuclear weapons from Israel in the 1970s, and that there are documents that prove that Israel in fact had the weapons, which they have never confirmed or denied. The paper has three pages on the news plus an opinion piece by Gary Younge regarding the Israeli government’s attacks on Richard Goldstone over his UN report on Israeli behaviour towards Palestinians.

A forceful comeback

Israeli Watch has now returned to the scene of reporting the latest news and events in the only apartheid state in the world. We apologise for the long hiatus and the lack of coverage, especially since many events had happened since our last coverage of the events in the Zionist entity and its relations with its neighbours. The recent War On Gaza was a strong case in that point. We hope to make up for it with our return to coverage on Israeli policies and the state of affairs in the country.
