What Mike Whitney Says Here About Israel/Palestine Is Mirror of U.S./Iraq

"The West Bank and Gaza are giant concentration camps. Elections create the unfortunate illusion of democracy and normality. It is a cynical public relations hoax intended to assuage the world’s conscience and put people to sleep."

"By arresting government officials, we can see that Palestinian democracy only exists when it suits Israel’s interests. It is a complete sham."

"The reality of occupation is evident by the facts on the ground and in the photos now appearing from Gaza of bombed-out buildings, traumatized children, bereaved parents and utter hopelessness."

"Israel has robbed the Palestinian people of their freedom. The elections were a fraud. The issue continues to be occupation, and occupation alone."
