Eleven Wars against Palestinians: How Palestinians are coping with their Elimination

Speakers: Howayda Al-Harithy and Salman Abu Sitta (Founder and President, Palestine Land Society) Invoking the myth of Palestine as "a land without a people” to justify its project, Zionism physically destroyed most of Palestine and depopulated it from most of its native population to replace them with settlers, coming mostly from Europe initially. This occurred through eleven kinds of permanent wars waged for over a century against the Palestinians. The aim of this endeavour has been to sustain the pretence that there were no people, no history, no geography, no archaeology, no identity, no violated rights, and hence no crime committed.

This is unprecedented in colonial history. No colonial power did resort to such tactics for such a long time, with such massive power and influence, under the glare of cameras and under the watchful eye of the UN.

How could this obliteration be countered?
