Even after an Egypt-brokered ceasefire between Hamas and Zionist Israeli terrorists took effect following an 11-day-long Zionist attack on Gaza Strip, Zionist terrorist chief Benjamin Netanyahu’s mercenaries are relentless. On Friday, May 21st 2021, these terrorists again attacked Palestinians at the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound in Jerusalem, breaking the ceasefire terms.
As the ceasefire between Hamas and Zionist Israeli terrorists is seen globally as a setback for Netanyahu, who has been keen to titillate his Zionist fascist vote bank with optics of Palestinian humiliation to win a majority in the next election, is going to keep the heat on. The Palestinian people have heroically resisted the attacks by the heavily-armed Zionist terrorists on Al-Aqsa Mosque with stones and courage. According to reports, the Zionist occupation regime forcefully abducted 16 Palestinian people from the site.
Earlier, it was this brutal aggression by the Zionist terrorists at the Al-Aqsa Mosque that resulted in a massive Palestinian resistance during the Islamic holy month of Ramzan. Hamas played a key role in organising a massive resistance struggle against the Zionist aggression on Gaza Strip.
According to reports, 248 Palestinians were killed in the Zionist terrorist attacks on Gaza Strip, including 66 children and 39 women. Around 1,910 others were wounded. Hundreds of houses have been destroyed due to indiscriminate Zionist missile firing. Even the media wasn’t spared in Gaza Strip by the feral Zionist terrorists.
All this happened when the “international community” showed its ubiquitous nonchalant attitude because Tel Aviv enjoys the immunity cover provided by Joe Biden-led US imperialism and its western puppets. After going overboard with his support for the Zionist terrorist attacks on Gaza, Biden promised to help the besieged Palestinian territory as a show of sham concern.
The Zionist terrorists who occupy the Palestinian land and seek the “right to existence”, based on the wrong notion and distortion of history, doesn’t recognise the Hamas or the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) and other resistance forces as political forces but considers them terrorists. The US imperialism and its west European puppets also follow the same line and have designated Hamas and others as “terrorist” organisations.
Yet, when the same Hamas, which has won popular support to rule the Gaza Strip, forces the Zionist terrorists to retreat, then it becomes an ignominious optics for a terrorist kingpin like Netanyahu, who thought of returning to power with an absolute majority using a purported victory against the Palestinian resistance as an achievement.
Palestinians are celebrating the ceasefire between Hamas and Zionist Israeli terrorists as a victory, as Hamas said that the truce wasn’t unconditional, as claimed by Netanyahu’s lapdogs. Abdel-Latif al-Qanou, the Hamas spokesperson, told the media that the resistance movement has imposed two conditions for ceasefire– end of forced expulsions of Palestinian families in the East Jerusalem neighbourhood of Sheikh Jarrah and to Zionist terrorist incursions into the Al-Aqsa Mosque.
As Netanyahu is facing his opposition’s criticism for signing, what’s called, a “humiliating defeat”, he is now willfully violating the terms of the ceasefire between Hamas and Zionist Israeli terrorists. The recent attacks on the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound prove that the Zionist terrorists are keen to restart the cycle of violence and resistance.
But the Zionist terrorist forces can’t anymore subjugate the Palestinian people, despite getting full-fledged support from Biden. The people’s resistance struggle against Zionist occupation, which is backed by regional super-power Iran, has changed the equation. Despite enjoying technological supremacy, the Zionist terrorists suffered humiliating defeats in Gaza. This proves that weapons or technology can’t win a war, but the people and their political support for a cause can bring a real transformation.
The massive global support for Palestine, which hailed the ceasefire between Hamas and Zionist Israeli terrorists as a victory of the resistance, has pushed the Zionist terrorists back. This also forced most of the countries to welcome the ceasefire. More than 200,000 people took part in an anti-Zionist and pro-Palestine rally in Cardiff, London and Manchester on May 22nd. Several protest demonstrations took place around the world, amid the COVID-19 restrictions, to oppose the Zionist aggression.
The ceasefire between Hamas and Zionist Israeli terrorists won’t last long due to the material conditions. Netanyahu will break the truce for his political goals and relaunch attacks. It’s the Hamas, PFLP and other resistance movements that must unitedly thwart such actions by the Zionist terrorists. Moreover, the Palestinian people must intensify their movement against the illegal occupation regime to prevent ouster from their homes and intensify the struggle for free Palestine.
