How can Zionist Israel claim to be a democracy when it has imposed a tight siege of the tiny Gaza enclave where nearly two million people are held prisoners? Gaza’s horrific statistics should be thrown at the Zionists who never tire of extolling the non-existent virtues of Israel and claim Israeli victimhood. Israel is not a victim; it is an aggressor and a criminal state whose rulers openly threaten others with death and destruction. When I hear Zionists claim Israel is a “democracy,” it makes my blood boil. Israel is doing to the Palestinians what the Nazis did to the Jews during the Second World War. It is our collective responsibility to expose Zionist crimes and join the campaign of Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against it. Political and social lepers like Israel and India must be exposed.
