NETANYAHU CELEBRATES, GIVES HIS APPROVAL TO IBRAHIMI MOSQUE MASSACRE ON ITS ANNIVERSARY

Israel’s prime minister Benyamin Netanyahu made an extremely provocative (and deliberate) visit to the Ibrahimi mosque in occupied West Bank’s Hebron today Tuesday February 25th.

THE IBRAHIMI MOSQUE MASSACRE

26 years ago to the day, illegal American settler Baruch Goldstein(1956-1993), a follower of his fellow
ERlBu3xU0AEnI0GAmerican extremist Meir Kahane(1932-1990), killed 29 and wounded 150 Palestinians in the Ibrahimi mosque.

Israel’s occupation forces killed 21 other Palestinians, who protested the massacre, before the day had ended.

Goldstein himself was killed by his surviving victims when he run out of ammunition. He was buried in the illegal colony oF Kiryat Arba in Hebron, his sumptuous grave becoming a shrine for the illegal Israeli settlers.

Very different treatment from Israel’s regime than his remains would have reserved if he would have been a Palestinian, destined to be hidden in one Israel’s “Cemeteries of Numbers”.

NETANYAHU GIVES HIS OWN PERSONAL SEAL OF APPROVAL

ERnsfSPXkAE_h15Today Israel’s prime minister Benyamin Netanyahu visited the Ibrahimi mosque with his wife and illegal Israeli settler leaders, giving his personal seal of approval on the massacre on its anniversary.

It was a message on which kind of government and policies illegal Israeli settlers can expect, if he wins the Knesset elections in March, third within the year.

It was also a message what illegal Israeli settlers can do when he is in power: To follow ERnscmAWoAAMbJdthe ‘example’ of Goldstein.

Likud, Netanyahu told with his visit, is the party of Baruch Goldstein.

SHUHADA STREET

Israeli state gave its seal of approval immediately after the massacre, collectively punishing Palestinians in Hebron for being the victims by closing the main commercial street of the Old City, the Shuhada Street.

It remains closed to this day, a wound in the heart of the city.

This reward did little good for the then Israeli prime minister Yitzhak Rabin(1929-1995). After a public campaign against him by illegal Israeli settlers and Benyamin Netanyahu, he himself in 1995 became a victim of the same movement he had fed only a year earlier.

  1. What a truly shocking endorsement of racist violence and religious intolerance. It’s not surprising that Netanyahu finds the company of far rightists in Hungary, Brazil, Ukraine and Saudi Arabia so consistent with his own policies.
