Free Palestine

Mahatma Gandhi

“My sympathies are all with the Jews. But my sympathy does not blind me to the requirements of justice. Palestine belongs to the Arabs as England belongs to the English or France to the French. It is wrong and inhuman to impose the Jews on the Arabs. What is going on in Palestine today cannot be justified by any moral code of conduct.”

Malcolm X

“The zionist argument to justify Israel’s present occupation of Arab Palestine has no intelligent or legal basis in history.”

Edward Said

“Remember the solidarity shown to Palestine here and everywhere… and remember also that there is a cause to which many people have committed themselves, difficulties and terrible obstacles notwithstanding. Why? Because it is a just cause, a noble ideal, a moral quest for equality and human rights.”

Nelson Mandela

“South Africa is not free until Palestine is free.”

Albert Einstein

“My awareness of the essential nature of Judaism resists the idea of a Jewish state with borders, an army, and a measure of temporal power, no matter how modest. I am afraid of the inner damage Judaism will sustain – especially from the development of a narrow nationalism within our own ranks, against which we have already had to fight strongly, even without a Jewish state.”

Zionism – the belief that Jewish people have a right to a nation-state built on top of the ruins of Palestine – is a racist, imperialist ideology that can only effectively be challenged through anti-racist, anti-imperialist theory and activism.
