    The media concentrated on the release of an Israeli solder and quite rightly condemn his isolation from friends and family.

    Yet this is exactly what thousands of Palestinian men, women and children endure in Israeli prisons everyday.

    In stark contrast to the Shalit case, these mostly political prisoners have little hope of getting their story told. Gaza is the biggest prison in the world and the Israeli blockade has served as collective punishment to the inhabitants.

    It could be said America may well still have power; but.............it's never really been good on justice. No in fact on this one it seems it's been backing the wrong side; protecting and persecuting the wrong people.

    I recall growing up and all you would see in the media about this topic, was what an evil wicked organisations like the PLF, and Yasser Arafat were, persecuting poor innocent people. But never telling the true or full story of how Palestinians were fighting for their homes and land, from illegal land grabs the Palestinians were persecuted, made refugees, and tortured too. But still is this story being told even today.

    Similar position in the UK: one Israeli equals a thousand Palestinians.
    The media love the story of one exceptional individual.

    I think one of the best things to come about for the sake of exposing Palestines true delimma under Israeli's Occupation, is Abbas subverting Netanyahu's intransigence by going for Statehood before the UN Security Counsil.

    I only wish is that Obama had kept his word about being serious about peace, rather than caving to AIPAC influence for the sake of his re election. No one around the world see's Obama's VETO threat as anything but caving to the very real and all pervading Israeli Lobby AIPAC and its far right associates here in the US.

    This is what happens when one government takes on the interests of another as if they are their own. the US is paying for this dearly in lost credibility and legitimacy in the Middle East and around the world. We are seen as the dog being wagged by its tail (Israel)

    Fortunately for Palestine, Israel's far right Zionist Fanatics are proving Palestines point behind going to the UN to seek a route to peace. Netanyahu has three times already increased settlement obstructions to peace since the Palestinian UN Bid for Statehood, these actions have done more good for showing the world the truth of the situation than years of Abbas speeches could ever do. Thank you Netanyahu !! Thank you very much, you are making Palestines case very obvious.

    It looks like Realjock is a pro-Zionist that deleted my thread about Israeli police force to remove a Palestinian family from their home in Jaffa, Israel.

    "Video footage showed a number of elements of the Israeli police are attacking the excessive beating of a Palestinian family in her home in the city of Jaffa."

    Well here on RJ we have the self important LIL'AIPAC, (c4) that attempts to cover up the truth, and prop up his Zionist Fanatic propaganda, you'll notice to that on all the pro Palestinian topics there are constant 'support Isreal, support peace' ads, or the one about, 'is it OK to kill Israeli children?' both ads are lies when you do any searching for truth at all its easy to discover, truth be told LIL'AIPAC is probably very busy in the real US AIPAC and makes sure these ads are placed here. I'd bet He was involved in getting it removed. Sorry your topic was removed.
