Russian think tank Katehon’s journalist Anastasia Zhukova interviewed me last week per telephone. The following is her summary of the interview:
The Palestinian Authority (PA) has been under the virtual control of Israel and its authority limited to the West Bank. It has no control over the Gaza Strip. The Palestinian Authority’s nominal president Mahmoud Abbas can operate only in the West Bank. However, most of the West Bank has been colonised and Israel has established its illegal settlements all over the place, leaving only a few areas for the Palestinians.
The Palestinian Authority was put in place in 1994 by Israel because after the Oslo Accords of 1993, the Zionists came up with the idea of creating an administrative body in the Israeli-occupied West Bank which could carry out its work on behalf of Israel. In such an arrangement, the role of the Palestinian Authority was no more than doing its work on behalf of the occupying power. At first, Yasser Arafat led the Palestinian Authority. Despite being an experienced man, he believed in the sincerity of the Israeli leaders. But he was gravely mistaken. Israel had no intention of giving up the occupied territories.
Then, in Israel ultra-right wing people, including Ariel Sharon and Benjamin Netanyahu, came to power. They had a huge number of operators to spread propaganda about the “peace process”. But there was no peace process. The whole thing was nothing but a big hoax.
No doubt, the rulers of Israel have consistently followed their plans for the expansion of Israel; they have not let anyone or anything come in their way. They have pursued their expansion by illegal settlements in the occupied territories. In doing this, the Zionists have not compromised with anyone. In essence, the Zionist mantra for settlements is that the whole of Palestine is their land, which God had given to them!
The United States and Israel have close relations. The Zionists were able to assert their control over the American political establishment through Israeli lobby and numerous Zionist associations in the U.S. As we can see, the American government is incapable of going against the Zionist interests. The U.S. rulers have to follow the commands of the Israeli rulers.
The American mass media have great power in the world, and in this it is the Zionists who exert enormous control over the mainstream media. They have an efficient propaganda machine which operates not only in in the US but also in Europe.
Despite all the heavy odds, some people have stood against the historical injustices inflicted on the people of Palestine, who have been trying to tell the truth about Israel’s policies against the Palestinians. These people work hard to tell the facts and expose the Zionist lies and deception.
