Comparison of #Ukraine with #Palestine exposes ugly prejudices

Last Updated: February 25, 2022By Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

“There is no such place called Palestine,” says ‘Elli’. It is true that Palestine is disappearing – but only due to the genocidal aggression of people like ‘Elli’ him/herself.

This Site welcomes the warm reception given to the article comparing Keir Starmer’s attitude to the Russian occupation of Ukraine with his policy on the Israeli occupation of Palestine.

I note with pleasure the proliferation of posts on the social media pointing out the discrepancy between his behaviours towards the two countries. Here are a few examples.

However, it seems some are less pleased to have their racism questioned. Here’s a commenter to This Site who wishes to hide behind the pseudonym “Elli” rather than be revealed for the bigot they are. Brace yourself because this is shocking:

There is no such place called Palestine, or a race of people. Muslims have no rights to Jewish lands. Jews are on their own lands. So are not ‘occupiers’, as you so ignorantly call them.

I make no reference to Jews in the matter of the Israeli occupation of Palestine. But Israel’s borders were very clearly set out before that country came into being by consent of the United Nations in 1949, as were those of Palestine.

Compare the 1949 borders with the situation today and we can see very clearly the extent of Elli’s lie. There is a state called Palestine – but it has been hugely eroded by Israeli occupation and aggression.

This person’s words are racist, Islamophobic and – at least on the face of it – genocidal. They also attempt to deny the Palestinian people the right to self-determination that is so often claimed by Israel on behalf of Jews – despite the fact that there are Jewish people living all over the world.

I look forward to receiving messages rejecting them – particularly from supporters of Israel like (for example) Keir Starmer.

But I fear I may have a long wait.
