“Arabs and Israelis misread Turkey”
July 2, 2010

Israel’s policy is that in order to overcome this problem of the rights of the poor Palestinians it will just liquidate the poor. The logic goes: “Wipe them out, and then we won’t have to worry about their rights and all that sort of thing anymore.” That was the US policy in Vietnam, too – to literally try to wipe them out. And if it hadn’t been for world opinion, they would have. But the world was horrified at the things the US did there. And that’s just what is happening now to Israel.
Israel is being exposed. The country has no plans for evacuating any occupied lands, but is rather going to gobble up more.
There is all this talk about peace and all this talk about UN patrol forces and so on, but observers say it looks to them by the way the Israelis are digging in, that they’re not planning to leave some areas at all. That means they would have to carry out what they used to call during Hitler’s days, “total population relocation” – or genocide. The Israelis have always driven out refuges. Now they want to get rid of the millions who are still left.
