Release of American journalist Abigail Suzanne (Abby) Martin, 32, latest investigative documentary (watch below) on How Palestine became Israel, was at the most appropriate time. Last week Israelis were overjoyed by sucking another $38 billion military aid from US taxpayers, and this week they’re mourning the death of their great leader Shimon Peres, a war criminal.
In late August 2016, Martin, the host of teleSUR’s The Empire Files visited the Fatah-ruled West Bank and the Zionist entity with her crew to find out the truth behind the Jewish-controlled media lies about Jewish occupation, Palestinians, Arabs and Muslims.
She was not allowed to enter Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip by Israeli authorities.
Ron Paz, head of Israel’s foreign press office refused to accept Abby Martin as a journalist, and accused her being a Palestinian supporter and an Israel-hater.
“What we saw was one of the biggest human rights disasters on the planet. A brutal and growing military occupation that thrives off U.S. sponsorship, soon to be strengthened even more by another US$38 billion in tax dollars—the largest military aid deal in history,” Martin said.
“Before Palestine had borders it was a recognized nation, its cultural identity distinct, with deep roots in the land,” says Martin adding that at the time of WWI, Muslims made 75% of the total population with 20% Christians and only 5% Jews.
With the only perception many westerners have of the region disseminated through biased, mainstream Jewish-controlled media and promotional Birthright videos, many perceive it as a refuge for Jews who are constantly living under threat of genocide from Muslims.
But as Martin recounts, the history of Palestine’s shrinking borders occurred through relentless violence, repression and forced expulsion, enacted intentionally upon and disparagingly at the region’s native Arab population.
The looting and division of the Muslim heartland by western colonial powers, especially England and France, in the aftermath of World War I, to the creation of the Zionist entity in 1948, the short video explains the western barbaric history through which Palestinians lost control of their ancestral land.
