Israeli elections change nothing

--- Nasir Khan, April 10, 2019

Now Benjamin Netanyahu has got his mandate renewed to kill and crush the Palestinians and further expand the Zionist state in the occupied territories. Israel has the backing of the rulers of the United States and of many other countries to do whatever it wants to do with the defenseless people of Palestine. The allies of Israel will not allow anyone to stand in the way of brutal Israeli crimes against a colonized people. Such is the reality of military and political power in a world where truth and justice find no place for the victims. 

Indeed, there are many people who continue to oppose Israeli oppression and its crimes against humanity. They raise their voices in international forums, write in the news media and show their solidarity with the Palestinians. But such voices cannot stop Israeli oppression and its systematic expansion of illegal settlements in the occupied areas. The United States, along with its close allies, is the biggest obstacle in the path of justice for the Palestinians, because it neutralizes all the UN resolutions on the issue.
