Gaza a history of defiance!


Gaza has a tumultuous history, having endured several Zionist aggressive wars in the past. However, the current conflict surpasses all levels of brutality witnessed before. It is unfortunate that Gaza’s strategic location, serving as a gateway to Palestine from Africa, has made it bear the brunt of its geographical significance. History has taught us that a country’s location often shapes its destiny.

 A Yugoslav historian, in his book “A House on the Side of the Road,” highlighted how Yugoslavia’s position as a bridge between Europe and Asia influenced its historical trajectory. In 332 BC, Alexander the Great embarked on his journey towards the east. Gaza resisted his advances, leading to a siege and subsequent massacre of its inhabitants upon its fall. Similar events unfolded in 1802 when Napoleon Bonaparte, claiming to uphold the values of the French Revolution, Liberté, égalité, fraternité, pursued an imperialist agenda.

 He was among the first to advocate for the establishment of a Jewish state in Palestine. In Gaza, Napoleon executed all surrendered soldiers, citing a lack of provisions as justification. The late Moroccan thinker was correct in asserting that the slogans of the French Revolution, such as Liberté, égalité, fraternité, were intended solely for the French and Europeans, rather than encompassing all of humanity.

The ongoing Zionist aggression in Gaza has exposed the hollowness of human rights rhetoric in the West, revealing the existence of double standards. The Zionists’ current actions bear no resemblance to the culture of the Middle East. Instead, they have imported a culture of violence and crime from the Eastern European ghettos they originated from. The Palestinians have suffered immeasurable pain as a result. This barbaric behavior has left an indelible mark on the collective memory of Palestinians and Arabs, undoubtedly fueling future conflicts. Regrettably most Western nations have aligned themselves with this genocidal war.

The nations that opposed the genocide war, including   Iran, Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Algeria, Brazil, China, Russia, South Africa, and Bolivia, will always hold a significant position in the hearts of the Palestinians and the global community.

The Zionist fascists will ultimately be defeated, and I will have the opportunity to visit a liberated Gaza and a free Palestine.
