At no point in this sixty year saga of land theft and human rights violations has any international organization or any country succeeded in halting Israels takeover or Israeli confinement, abuse and expulsion of the Palestinian people. Rather, the United States, Middle East peace broker by default, has sided with Israel when the Palestinians objected or the United Nations sought to obtain Israeli compliance with international law or ordinary fairness. At this time Palestinians live in open air prisons comprising about 5% of their ancestral home. More than a million are third class citizens of Israel, but close to three million are confined in scattered bantustans in the West Bank, while more than a million are crowded into the nearly completely devastated Gaza Strip. While pressing both parties to return to the negotiating table, the United States, other western powers or the Arab states have failed to halt Israeli land theft by settlement building on land confiscated from Palestinians or to slow expulsion of Palestinians from East Jerusalem. Lacking help from the civilized world, the Palestinian people are condemned when they fight back. The outside world insists that they be non-violent as their homeland is forcibly taken away from them.
