    RAMALLAH, (PIC)-- Arab Knesset member Hanin Zoabi stated that Israel's racist and ethnic cleansing policies against the Palestinians are much worse than it was in South Africa during the apartheid time.

    Zoabi made her remarks on Sunday addressing the Russell tribunal on Palestine in the South African city of Cape Town.

    She castigated the repressive policies pursued by Israel as an occupation entity against the indigenous people of Palestine especially in the 1948 occupied lands.

    "It is not only we are considered citizens of second class in the eyes of the occupation state or that our citizenship is conditional on pledging allegiance to Zionism and the Jewish state, but it goes beyond that to the extent we are seen by this state as enemies and a strategic threat," the Knesset member told the tribunal.

    She explained that there are more than 40 laws devised by the Israeli apartheid regime which are intended for racial discrimination against Palestinian citizens in their occupied lands.

    "Israel is dealing with us as if we are invaders of our own land. In South Africa, the ethnic cleansing took place in certain areas, but in Israel there has been ethnic cleansing against 85 percent of the Palestinian people in all areas occupied in 1948, so the talk is about a policy more racist than the apartheid, but it is less exposed and apparent," she added.

    As W.Shoebat mentioned "As I lived in Palestine, everyone I knew could trace their heritage back to the original country their great grandparents came from. Everyone knew their origin was not from the Canaanites, but ironically, this is the kind of stuff our education in the Middle East included. The fact is that today’s Palestinians are immigrants from the surrounding nations! I grew up well knowing the history and origins of today’s Palestinians as being from Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Christians from Greece, muslim Sherkas from Russia, muslims from Bosnia, and the Jordanians next door. My grandfather, who was a dignitary in Bethlehem, almost lost his life by Abdul Qader Al-Husseni after being accused of selling land to Jews. He used to tell us that his village Beit Sahur in Bethlehem county was empty before his father settled in the area with six other families. The town has now grown to 30,000 inhabitants."
    It's rather interesting what arab country that "indigenous" Zoabi descend from? Besides, Abu Masen confirmes there's no occupation, so, how does Zoabi know? Occupationally dumb, of course.

    Americans are from all over the place too but that doesn't mean we are not Americans.

    Ah! So, why are palistanians, and Zoabi with them, ashamed of admitting to their major immigrant nature, lying like a pornstar about their "indigenousness" instead?

    Virtually all Palestinians are Palestinians.

    Why would anyone question their existence or heritage?

    That is, palistanians, of course, for palestine is about 60 years as kaput!
    Their existence and heritage are those of major immigrant arab losers, who've been unable to accomplish anything in life, because life (and a job) isn't on their list of priorities, provided they have that list at all, of course.
