Hope and Empowerment, by Mazin Qumsiyeh

[now we know why Trump and his supporters hate the Liberty]The Statue of Liberty Was Originally a Muslim Woman: “The NewColossus" was actually born in Egypt [If a Palestinian or any other non-Jew speaks of the role of money andthe Rothschild’s in establishing Israel, they would be called“anti-Semitic”. But what if those speaking are the Rothschild’s? Whatis not mentioned is that part of the deal the Zionists represented byRothschild got for the Balfour and Cambon declarations of supportfrom Great Britain and France respectively is that the Zionistmovement in the US successfully lobbied to get the US to join WW I onthe side of the allies. See ]Lord Rothschild discusses cousin’s crucial role in ‘miracle’ BalfourDeclaration: Speaking ahead of the 67-word letter’s centenary, JacobRothschild describes the historic declaration which paved the way forIsrael’s existence see this[Here is a modern day Rothschild trying to buy US policy to serveIsrael. Billionaire Shedlon Adelson meeting Billionaire Trump ahead ofNetanyahu’s visit. They have loyalty to money and Israel not to theUSA. Shame]  Days Before Netanyahu Visit, Trump Expected to MeetSheldon Adelson: Adelson, a major Republican donor and the owner ofIsraeli pro-Netanyahu daily Israel Hayom, will reportedly lobby Trumpagainst a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. “Jewish State” Knesset (parliament) passed a law thatretroactively legalizes land theft (in violation of International law.Zionism (and its vassal state of Israel) is a threat to humanity andnot just us Palestinians. They pushed for the wars on the Arab world(Palestine, Iraq, Yemen, Syria etc) that has caused significantmayhem, over 2 million lives, and the worst is yet to come. Pleasenote the Trump policies including the seven countries he selected fora travel ban are the same ones that the neocon Zionists targeted inthe 1990s hoping to serve their masters in Tel Aviv. If Trump starts anuclear war, please remember Kushner, Adelson (who already called fornuking Iran), Elliot Abrams, Friedman, and others surrounding Trump(who clearly cannot even read or speak). But then again we will not bearound to remember anything. A brand of intelligent roaches whoinherit the earth (they are resistant to radiation) may write thathistory. But I am optimistic because I do see resistance both here inPalestine and in the US and elsewhee. I wrote a book “PopularResistance in Palestine: A History of Hope and Empowerment.” I hopepoliticians/billionaires read it (it can burst their bubble). Otherscan read it to get encouraged to go on pushing.In very difficult circumstances of occupation and repression, ourInstitute of Biodiversity and Sustainability and the Museum of NaturalHistory at Bethlehem University continue to grow.
