The Penny Has DroppedGilad Atzmon Salem-News.com
Solidarity with the Palestinians is about to become a tidal wave.
(LONDON) - Ynet reported yesterday, that in a BBC global poll gauging attitudes towards various countries worldwide, Israel came pretty much at the bottom -- There were just three countries less popular than the Jewish State – Pakistan, North Korea and Iran.
The Israelis must find it hard to accept that their state is one of the least popular countries in the world. Seemingly, Zionism -- that presented itself as a promise to bring about a civilised and lovable Jewish state -- has totally failed.
In spite of relentless Hasbara efforts and the Jewish lobbies around the world, the penny has dropped -- People out there see Israel for what it is : Just 21% of those polled wordlwide expressed a positive opinion of Israel.
I guess that the message is clear -- the solidarity with the Palestinians is about to become a tidal wave. Palestinian solidarity is the true meaning of humanism.
We are now a mass movement that is becoming increasingly aware of itself as such.
