Fire in the Evening. 1929. Paul Klee.
Palestinian children: they now have to walk a long way to their school, to go around the racist separation barrier. These are the consequences of Zionism.
“British intelligence officers planned a ‘black propaganda’ campaign against Islamic extremists, infiltrating their groups through the internet, documents leaked to The Observer reveal.”
This is Zionism: An Israeli occupation soldier points his gun at a Palestinian girl on her own land.PS So who is this woman abused (see picture yesterday) by Israeli occupation soldier?
