Israeli Defense Minister Vows To Crush S-300, S-700 etc If Israel Is Threatened

FILE IMAGE

It looks that the US-led April 14 missile strike on Syria has backfired and now Washignton and its allies are considering what do with consequences of their decision.

Israel is especially unhappy. For example, its defense minister Avigdor Lieberman is in fire over the possible S-300 supplies to Syria by Russia.

What’s important to us is that the defensive weapons the Russians are giving Syria won’t be used against us. If they’re used against us, we’ll act against them,” Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman told the Ynet newspaper in an obvious remark over the current situation. “If anyone attacks us, we will retaliate, regardless of S-300, S-700 or any anything else’s presence there.”

Lieberman claimed that Israel “doesn’t interfere in Syria’s internal affairs” adding that however, Israel will not allow Iran “to flood” Syria “with advanced weapons systems that would be aimed against Israel.”

The defense minister’s remarks came a day after an obvious example of Israeli non-interference into the Syrian affairs when the county’s military struck a position of the Syrian Arab Army east of the occupied Golan Heights destroying an artillery piece of the government forces.

Meanwhile, Israeli Minister of Intelligence Yisrael Katz said that any S-300 supplies to Syria will cross the line undermining  the Israeli-Russian relations.

“I doubt that they will supply this missile defense system – at the very moment they will cross a certain line in our relations,” Katz said in an interview with Army Radio.

On April 23, reports appeared that US CENTCOM commander General Joseph Votel had made “a secret and unprecedented visit to Israel” and met with senior Israeli security officials. Some experts link the trip with the alleged Israeli-US talks what to do if the Syrian government really receives advanced S-300 missile defense systems and attempt to deploy them near the contact line with Israel.

From the own side, Russia has announced that the decision on S-300 supplies has not been made yet. However, the option remains open.

    Boy are they totally rattled! Well tough luck Israel, it’s high time your bullying tactics in the Middle East were brought to an abrupt and timely halt. If the IAF is rendered impotent then good as this alone will put a stop to Israel’s perpetual meddling in the Middle East. If this is achieved then well done Russia as peace and prosperity will eventually unsue. Time to change the balance of power in the Middle East permanently.

    • Sakaramanga

      This shold have been done long time ago. What’s bothering Russia, I still don’t know. Once it was supposed to keep good relations with the West but they are the ones who are facing sanctions that are increased every day from the US/West. Besides how can the West defend their case against a move by Russia supplying weapons for defense to one of its allies! besides the West supplies weapons to everybody including PKK and ISIS. Man, Zionists rule the West but howcome RF is so late in supplying these toys to Syria…if an israeli plane gets shot down by a Syrian S-300 when it was attacking Syria will be a self-defense and can not be a starter of a NATO war with RF so it confuses me. (Israelies can’t make war but make NATO war on someone they so desire).

      • as

        Only recently Russian Armed Forces capable to overturned whatever the west can throw at them and only recently the Russian oligarchs lost so much power.

        • Sakaramanga

          makes sense thanks

        • FlorianGeyer

          Yes, and perhaps it is time to strip the Russian Oligarchs of their ill-gotten gains that were funded by Rothschild and other such venal banks during the Plunder of Russia during the 1990’s. The shareholdings of the oligarchs ( front men) are largely held as security by those banks.

          During the Stalin era millions of non jewish and even a few jewish Russians were sentenced and incarcerated in the Gulags by the largely Jewish ‘Jewdiciary’ and the Jewish dominated Cheka/NKVD secret police who also guarded the camps.

          The normal sentence for an ‘offence’ was 10 years and such sentences were often increased by further terms of 10 years if the inmate had not died , as millions did in the harsh conditions. When ‘freedom’ did arrive it was often in the form of ‘exile’ to Siberia etc where many of the camps were located.

          Lock up the oligarchs in a rather grand Tsarist era prison in Siberia that exists to this day I think. :)

      • Nigel Maund

    • Gerry Hiles

      A prime example of chutzpah, combined with victimhood, projection and all other elements of a psychopathic personality. Typical Ashkenazi Zionist illegal settler – after all they have to be very twisted to believe that they have a right to land they have zero connection with. Lieberman is Russian by birth, if I remember correctly. Supreme cheek indeed! “Poor me, how dare they defend themselves.”

      • Sakaramanga

        They are a joke. No wonder they got kicked out of wherever they settled before inventing Israel.

        And thanks info. Checked. Liberman was born in 1958 at Kishniev, Russia. Immigrated to Israel in 1978.

  • Moni3691

    If Russia capitulate to Israelis demand of not helping Syria with these defensive weapons, then something will be amiss. Red or whatever line they’ve drawn, Syria need these weapons ASAP.

    • Nigel Maund

      Agreed entirely!

    • TheLulzWarrior

      Then, israel and turkey will attack!

    • Ewan

      Russia does not “capitulate” – as with the cancellation of the Iran S300 deal, it was “offered” a massive concession by the US-Zio leaders. Putin knows the awesomeness of the S300 and uses it as a bargaining chip. However, the Iranian Bavar 373 are highly likely a Chinese clone of the S300..so, if it can do the job, who needs the S300

  • MADE MAKER

    DOES ISRAEL REALIZE that if they ATTACK SYRIA they will get ATTACKED

    S300 is defensive weapon – it will be used only if the Israeli regime attacks Syria.I hope these systems are delivered to Syria.And also Lieberman is clown,dont take his words seriously

    • hamster

      I’ve noticed Lieberman is always the most bellicose of all the Israeli leaders and spokespersons…

      • Gerry Hiles

        Well he’s a Russian defector blow-in settler who must know, deep down, that he has no right to be in Palestine, hence the bellicose, defensive cover up. It’s typical of psychopaths, or anyone without a real leg to stand on. Bluster and go on the attack.

      • Barba_Papa

        Think of your country’s most rabid left/right wing nutter short of a neo-nazi or a communist and then you probably have Lieberman. Or maybe now I’m insulting neo-nazis and communists? As Lieberman has argued in favor of ethnically cleansing all Palestinians.

        Considering the murky nature of Israeli coalition politics I’m not sure if he has any actual power, or if Netanyahu keeps him around, like Trump does with Bolton, to scare Johnny Foreigner.

    • TheLulzWarrior

      Make it clear that if Syria doesn´t get these systems, then Iran will!

    • Assad must stay (gr8rambino)

      Hahaha I always love ur commentary bro :))

  • Joe

    Well tiny little Israel had challenged big bear . Well let’s us see if the big bear chickens out or do what is right to support it’s ally as Hundreds of thousands Syrians have died being a friend of Russia. Or russia again will pander to it’s western partners or colleagues and leave Syria cold.

    I do not believe Israel has the capability to hit The S300 .

    F35 was damaged with A bird fired by Syria remember?

    • Gerry Hiles

      I don’t think that Russia ever has or ever will actually chicken out, but remember that only eighteen short years ago Russia was teetering on the brink of utter ruin. Great patience and care has been needed to come back the way it has, calculating and developing all defences necessary to prevent a full scale attack on the Motherland. Given Western psychosis a careful time must be picked to strike back if necessary.

      I think that we can take Vladimir Vladimirovich at his word that if Russia or it’s allies come under serious attack – that launch of ineffective Tomahawks did not count – then launch sites will be destroyed, whether on land or at sea.

    • PJ London

      Russia (Putin) has only one single objective. All else is irrelevant and ignored.
      Putin does not care about Assad or Erdogan, or Syria or Turkey or Kurds or anything but his single objective.
      “Protect Russia [and the Russian speaking people]”.
      Russia does not have ‘Allies’ only interests.
      Russia does not have ‘friends’ only interests.
      If the Russian interests change then so will it’s friends and allies.

      • Tudor Miron

        You don’t know sh$t about Russians.

        • PJ London

          Thank you for your insightful comment.
          I will agree, I try to know information and data about Russians, including those who I count as friends, but I agree that do not know ‘sh$t’.
          I leave that to people like you, who are clearly an expert in the stuff.

      meant to say an anticipated future generation of S-300 in that he says s-300 does not frighten them.

  • Pareggiamoiconti

    The idea that a “defensive” weapon is used to “attack” anyone is rather counterintuitive…

    Unless he means “you are not supposed to defend yourself from us”

    • Sakaramanga

      exactly!

      • Rob

        Next time Israeli shit jets will not return from their dirty mission because this time Syria have done proper arrangement for them. Any dirty attack from terrorist Israel will be retaliated with full blow.

        • Val Shadowhawk

          Yes! The S200 and S300 air defense systems are capable of shooting down jet aircrafts!!

    • Gerry Hiles

      Of course, typical response.

    • whatsmolly

      Well it’s not that crazy, it’s actually similar to why Russia is threatned by the US missle defense shield in EU, it will reduce not only their air capacity but more importantly, Syria would be in a very special position to down Israeli missles launched anywhere from eastern Israel. They pretty much have to hit Syria before they ever hit Iran and now there will be 2 layers of s 300 between them, Iran will have better protection from Israeli missles than the other way around. Israeli nukes is their deterant , they are pretty worthless without them and s300 in Syria will threaten that ability.

      • Yui2

        Are you high? Russia complained about the US missile shield in EU because it can be very easily converted into a missile launcher. That Israel then wouldn’t be able to bomb Syria or Iran without worry? That’s a good thing!

        • Elie Assael

          There is no real physical conversion needed, it’s just a question of software and which missile types are loaded.

      • Padre

        So, in your opinion, Israel is entitled to attack Siria, because it’s on their way with attacking Iran?

        • whatsmolly

          I gave no opinion on what’s justified and what’s not. If that’s what you took away from the comment then it’s pointless trying to explain otherwise. What ever your opinion on Israel is, s 300 in Syria hurts their nuclear capability and that’s terrifying for israeI, alot more terrifying than getting a few planes shot down.

          • SG

            Russia should give Syria at least a regiment’s worth of S-300s (54 S-300 SAM launchers in total) and additional ZSU-23-4 “Shilka” SHORADs to start out with, these S-300s should be at least of similar quality to the S-300P system that the Russian MoD had given to Belarus and Kazakhstan free of charge over the past few years. Later they should also offer the S-300V4 upgrade for the S-300P, which has the same maximum range as the S-400 air defense system, along with the 91N6E “Big Bird” detection radar.

            It would also be interesting to see the Syrians deploy their future S-300s near the Khmeimim Air Base used by the Russian Aerospace Force in Syria, albeit NATO and Israel would likely blame the Russians for any of their aircraft shot down when flying through Syrian or Lebanese airspace.

          • alejandro casalegno

            Syria can`t pay even the S-300……..no way the S-400…….will be a Russia gift…………

          • wwinsti

            Syria has already paid for an s300, some mig29s and mig 31s that were never delivered.

          • Ewan

            What is terrifying to Israel is the terrible truth for many decades – That their ONLY superiority was air superiority happily provided by the USA. Now their air superiority has been totally neutralised (if Syria gets the S300), so they have NO way of maintaining ANY aggressive stance towards Syria or Iran. Basically, its game over for Israel.

      • Promitheas Apollonious

        Hit Iran…………… they never had the balls and never will beside farting and threatening. Unless of course their death wish have reached desperation levels and want to get it over with, with their elimination from the map. In this case I am 100% with israshit to go for it.

        • EL ZORRO

          The ZIONIST will not do any thing unless they have the UNITED STATES DEEP STATE BEHIND, they will USE THE UNITED STATES MILITARY TO FIGHT THEIR WARS OF CONQUER.

          • Promitheas Apollonious

            That is been their wish for 30 years now yes. Have you seen the americans ever do this? Iran is not someone who will take it seating down and americans can not defeat Iran and they know this better, than the Iranians know it.

          • Ewan

            “what the Zionist state has in store for you when it’s your turn..” – What do they have in store ? – a bunch of crybaby IDF Pussies?

      • Garga

        I think we can’t compare those two situations.

        Russia is worried about the US ABMs in eastern Europe, because of the United States’ “preventive attack” strategy (I kill you because someday somehow you may acquire the means to hurt me or my interests). That’s the doctrine they had for more than 50 years.

        The Soviet Union and it’s major successor, Russia believed and believe that MAD -Mutually Assured Destruction- is the greatest deterrence against such madness.
        When your adversary is the US, what a “capable” missile shield does, is that it effectively erases MAD and opens the way for a first nuclear attack on you without the fear of your retaliation. Wouldn’t you be worried in that situation?

        Notice that neither Syria nor Iran have such a war strategy. In case of Iran, their military strategy is a defensive one. Even Iran’s most controversial weapons -missiles- are defensive as Iran kept it’s missile ranges at about 2000KM so far and just works on their precision (which is very much needed as they’re not nuclear tipped). More than that, as much as US and Co. would like to paint Iran as an aggressor, Iran didn’t attack anyone for the last 3 centuries or so and only defended when being attacked.

        So it’s really apples and oranges. If Israelis are worried that these “defencive” weapons, such as S-300 may be used against them, the best guarantee for them is not to attack.
        Syria will acquire a capable air defence one way or another, IF they manage to hold their country together. The irony is that the reason they will have it is because of Israel’s actions.

        • Joe

          But but…Israel has the right to defend themselves as well as attack others . Other do not have that right.

          This is the mentality of Western countries…even US .

          When countries like China or Russia is able to defend themselves , then it is a threat to them and threaten war.

          Might is right

        • sam_koll

          “Iran didn’t attack anyone for the last 3 centuries or so and only defended when being attacked.”
          What puzzle me is how the Israeli elites managed to turn (neutralize) most the Arab countries that wanted to drive it(Israel) into the sea since 1948;

          Egypt, Jordon, Iraq,(even Saudi Arabia). These counties are BFF with Israel. Iran did not take part in those wars; yet Israeli elites returned that Iranian gesture by making it (Iran ) the West number one target for destruction.
          How did Iran get into the bad books with Israel?

    • First Lastname

      This old Polish saying perfectly explains why Israel sees a defensive weapon as something that can attack them:

    • SG

      Russia capable of providing S-300 to Syria within one month:

      http://tass.com/defense/1001329

      [Russia’s
      General Staff declared it might be possible to raise the question once
      again of providing S-300 systems to Damascus shortly after the United
      States, Britain and France on April attacked Syria with cruise missiles.
      The agreement with Syria on providing S-300 was signed back in 2010
      only to be frozen due to objections from the West and Israel.]

    • Ray Douglas

      The idea of the S300 would be that if Syria decided to reclaim the Golan Israel would not be able to retaliate as he S300’s would stop them.

    • Real Anti-Racist Action

      Putin should obey Israeli orders, and not deliver the S-300 or the S-700 system.
      And instead should just simply deliver the S-400 system, as to not upset Israels demands.
      The S-400 system is the loophole lol.

      • Jack Luminous

        Of course… let’s use some of our “great wisdom” LOL

  • KennyB

    The first domino has to fall and the rest will follow. Neutralise the IAF and Israel will only be able to cry big tears in all the capital cities of the West, stamp their feet, and throw a tantrum, but attacks on Syria and Lebanon will cease. Then, for all their US weapons and aircraft, Israel will be forced to stay inside their own borders and become a well-behaved state. It’s time that Russia puts a stop to Israel’s games. Being kind to Israel is no longer in Russia’s interests.

  • paul ( original )

    I would dearly like to see the Israeli minister having to put his money
    where is mouth is. Sadly I don’t think this will happen as I don’t
    believe the system will be supplied. I would very much hope to be
    proved wrong on this point but until the system is actually in Syrian
    hands ( and unambiguously know to be) all we have are hopes and
    speculation. For my part I just don’t think it will happen.

  • François

    Come on Israël, keep the idea you will dominate your neighbors for ever.
    You should know that most of military defeats are due to under estimation of the enemy.
    So, be sure you will be defeated.

  • NeoLeo

    Deranged zionazi lunatic Lieberman/Doberman, is even more insane than Bibi.

  • Ray Douglas

    I would imagine that if Russia does supply Syria with the S300 then it will be deployed at the Euphrates River as Syria has stated on many occasions that it will liberate every inch of Syrian territory. That would mean that Eastern Syria would be a no fly zone for the US/UK/France war planes. The liberation of all Syria would then follow.

    • testera

      It would be deployed to the west so it could cover Lebanon airspace (which is often used for standoff attacks).

      • Ray Douglas

        One of us could be correct, both of us could be correct and both of us could be wrong. But I think the recapture of the oil wells in the East would be a better achievement for the Syrians as they have a lot of rebuilding to do and the oil would help with that. Russia could give them enough S400’s to cover the whole country so we would both be wrong.

        • testera

          The article is about Israel feeling threatened by S-300 deployment. They don’t have planes flying around Euphrates, and are repeatedly attacking western parts of Syria (using standoff weapons, usually from Lebanon airspace). One of those got shot down recently.
          Deployment of S-300 around Deir ez-Zor would be nice, but I don’t think it would be of primary importance right now.

  • Manuel Flores Escobar

    Well the weapons are coming and they are defensive weapons. There is a difference between an active and a passive air defence. The deployment may change from a passive to an active air defence and that is what Israel is worried about.

    As the days pass, the real intentions of Israel are exposed!!!

    It would be more honest to accept that they want Syria to be destroyed fucking cowards!!!

  • RichardD

    If the evil Jew baby raper’s bombastic statements were a deterrent, they would have a conventional and nuclear superior Syrian government coalition deeply entrenched on their northern border. Complete with a no fly zone over the 70% of Syria under their control that routinely shoots at and shoots down missiles and aircraft entering or approaching it. And the more that the Jew 4 of Israel, the US, France and the UK violate Syrian and surrounding airspace, the stronger that the no fly zone gets.

    S-300 systems would probably be accompanied by other defensive systems. Russians would probably be among personal operating those systems. So simply, don’t do it Israel. You have few enough friends as it is these days so, chill out.

    Okay, I am probably going to get it for this one but, here goes; Israel is receiving an involuntary declawing and behavior modification. I don’t know if the Syrian government will get the S-300s et al right now. However, that road is being traveled by the decision makers who could make that very real. Israel must face the fact that business as usual, attack anybody at anytime they will, is now coming to an end. It is that way for the US so, why would the Israelis not be included? A good day to all.

  • SG

    If Russia had made the decision to sell them to Syria in the first place, much of this could have been avoided in the first place.

    Russia capable of providing S-300 to Syria within one month: http://tass.com/defense/1001329

    [Russia’s General Staff declared it might be possible to raise the question once again of providing S-300 systems to Damascus shortly after the United States, Britain and France on April attacked Syria with cruise missiles.The agreement with Syria on providing S-300 was signed back in 2010
    only to be frozen due to objections from the West and Israel.]

    “What’s important to us is that the defensive weapons the
    Russians are giving Syria won’t be used against us. If they’re used
    against us, we’ll act against them,” Israeli Defense Minister
    Avigdor Lieberman told the Ynet newspaper in an obvious remark over the
    current situation. “If anyone attacks us, we will retaliate, regardless of S-300, S-700 or any anything else’s presence there.”

    Did Avigdor Lieberman say these exact words or Write these words?

  • World_Eye

    Yeah Blah Blah from the Zionist Defense dick. He always just barks and barks, and we all know about barking dogs they never bite… Screw him he just barking again.They are all going mad they are all shiting in their pants, emergency meetings etc., for the S-300’s, if Russia gives Syria that advance weapon , Israhelli knows that, that will be the end of their Syria flying entering and exiting when ever you want to attack some Iranian bases, and their spy drones will fall like Apples from trees if that weapons is delivered, and if they try to shoot at it, the very own S-300 is very capable of destroying any incoming fire missiles, of it doesn’t have to, that’s why it has its own little brother Pantsir-1. Damn I really wish that Syria will get a good air-defense weapon and then, all of these outside aggressors that are attacking Syria can think 3 times before do any action.

    Lieberman claimed that Israel “doesn’t interfere in Syria’s internal affairs” adding that however, Israel will not allow Iran “to flood” Syria “with advanced weapons systems that would be aimed against Israel.”

    Let’s try running this thing back to front:

    “Syria doesn’t interfere in Israel’s internal affairs” adding that however, Syria will not allow The USA “to flood” Israel with advanced weapons systems that would be(and ARE presently) aimed and used against Syria.

    A reasonable request wouldn’t you think?

    Selective Outrage

    by STANLEY L. COHEN

    Not once, but twice, Donald Trump seized upon the specter of alleged chemical use, by Bashar al-Assad, to punish Syria with missile attacks. With predictable and expedient faux rage, he risked elevating a seven year horror into a cataclysmic nightmare; at least that’s the common political sentiment.

    Perhaps, this calculation is more than a bit frayed given the certainty of a choreographed agreement between Trump and Putin before the attacks began.

    To be sure, only a political novice would overlook the bargain that enabled Trump to stage his domestic political show and afford Putin ample time to move his forces to avoid his own domestic fallout should any of the US missiles have missed their Syrian mark and fallen, instead, upon a Russian fighter jet or pilot.

    Pardon my cynicism, but I have little doubt that when it comes to the Middle East, or elsewhere, neither of these autocrats sees much beyond their own political and economic self-interest no matter what flag their rhetoric comes draped in. It’s not just the way of the times, but the accomplished trait of each.

    Perhaps, I’m being a bit too harsh on Trump, in particular. No doubt he was moved by images of Syrian children swept up in the crosshairs of military carnage that, for years, has denied them the laugh of youth in their native land.

    Indeed, given his long and, very public, strong support of Muslim and Arab communities throughout the world, only a hardened skeptic would deny the president his just dues for his latest public tear-drop.

    Can it be convenient overlook that I fail to recall candidate Trump’s criticism over thousands of Palestinian civilians and children slaughtered by repeated attacks from Israel upon Gaza, typically utilizing chemical weapons as a mainstay of their onslaught?

    And have I missed Trump’s displeasure over hundreds of Palestinian kids, some as young as 13, detained by Israel without any modicum of due process or trial during his tenure in office? Or his pointed challenge to the policy of kidnapping children from their homes in the middle of the night to be subjected to endless Israeli interrogation without legal counsel and with sexual harassment the seeming mainstay of the inquisition? And has his human rights concern over Syrian children not earned Trump the benefit of the doubt for his marked silence, these last few weeks, over Israel’s use of prohibited weapons of war and the outright assassination and cripple of hundreds, if not thousands, of Palestinian youth on the border of Gaza?

    Pardon my haste, however, consistency would seem to indicate that righteous indignation over attacks upon Syrian civilians would somehow not end up as so much companion silence when the victims are Palestinian.

    But then again, Trump’s calculated quiet is not so unlike that of many world leaders who display almost pious devotion to Israeli power yet absolute indifference to Palestinian pain.

    And what of those, with clear eyes and aching heart, who sit and watch, night after night, paralyzed with disbelief, for decades, as millions of stateless people have been relegated to little more than a passing historical footnote.

    Hardened by the mayhem that has, by now, grown so rote and stale at their side, many nod their heads in disgust and, with needless surrender, turn off the light and go to bed. Tomorrow is another day, a better one… or so they hope. It won’t be… unless we act.

    Soul is not just pain we feel when faced with the hurt of the moment. It’s not a devotion to shed tears at the next image, offense, or slay sure to come. Nor is it made of voice alone… one that prevails at the tenth, fiftieth or hundredth outrage. Eventually, it can become so much a passé piqued cheer heard but among our own choir… and little elsewhere.

    For some, history has a way of freezing moments in surreal times; of providing ample opportunity to nod in denial, as if we did not know when, all the while, we did know yet did not care. Or maybe we did… but did not dare to act.

    Jews recall the box cars and ask where we were as furnaces overflowed with the ash of humanity. The Khmer Rouge farmed with the feed of millions while a world deadened by a river of Asian blood saw none and moved on. In Rwanda, the machete defined our passing view while the swing of sharpened steel proved to be but a shadow beyond belief… one shriek and done.

    Time and time again, we have proved that ours is a collective journey filled with endless promise but, alas, one often framed with narrow pretext and sheer denial.

    For those of us ensconced from the safety of afar, it will always be better, tomorrow, as reality passes by leaving spectators free to decide what price is worth the cost… while others always pay.

    Romance knows no age. It warms the heart no matter its touch or language. Suffer knows no difference. It’s a universal travel that reduces all to the lowest common denominator no matter the stone of its path. A dead child, a crippled woman, a funeral wail is a universal rite of mourn that knows no narrow race, faith or class. It’s the draw that connects all who pass-on, from this world to the next, and leave behind those stunned, no matter what their status, lost for all their days yet to come, desperate for reason, rhyme, and purpose. It never arrives. Memories may dim. Love never leaves.

    How does one explain away the loss of laugh, the slip of smile, the end of endless hope; you can’t. But yet in Gaza for many after a decade of siege, attack, and boundless slaughter there is now only one way home… in victory or in death. What else can be said when martyrdom becomes an all too welcome respite to an endless life of suffer?

    For weeks, now, Gaza has stood against the world. Armed with little more than purpose and determined principle, tens of thousands have willingly walked from the safety of their prison cell to the courtyard of casualty. With dozens murdered, thousands wounded, and hundreds crippled, the best and brightest of Gaza… its young, its women its elderly… have thrown caution to the gas filled wind facing off against ruthless snipers, drones and tank fire. No Israeli has been injured.

    Yet, the Great March of Return continues. For Gaza, there is simply no choice. For us, there is.

    For more than a decade, we have seen the rise of BDS… a powerful, peaceful, world-wide movement that, despite the insipid Israeli chant to the contrary, has not only educated hundreds of millions to the plight of Palestine but has cost the pariah state billions of dollars in lost revenue. It’s not enough.

    By design, BDS was intended to open a new, peaceful attack upon Israel… outside of the occupied territories… while decisions on the nature and extent of resistance on the ground is, as it must, left to Palestinians to determine for themselves.

    Of necessity, over the years, Palestinian resistance has embraced a wide range of ever changing strategy and tactics. Decades ago, at times, it included pitched battles and spectacular isolated attacks. With the intifadas came popular uprisings that ran the gamut from mass boycotts and labor strikes to attacks with rocks and Molotov cocktails. In their deadliest days, they included martyrdom operations and isolated rocket and sniper fire.

    In the years since, as Israel has increasingly resorted to mass slaughter, extrajudicial assassination, collective detention and community siege, the résistance has, per force, continued to evolve to meet ever changing exigencies.

    At times militant and fierce, some Palestinians have embraced their international and lawful right to armed struggle… be it as individuals or as a member of a movement or a group. Many have chosen a mask and rock over silence in an ever present clash not just for land, but collective dignity. Hunger strikes have ensured that thousands detained behind bars have, still, the freedom to speak with command and purpose. Others have elected peaceful challenge with the slap of a hand or turned their voice to song or psalm to ensure that those who follow will know well from where they come.

    Today, outside of Palestine, there are millions who, through their collective voice and determination, tell the world Palestinians are not alone as they struggle to reclaim their home and obtain the equal justice that is a birthright for all who walk this earth.

    By BDS, mass protest, and petition this movement of Muslims, Christians, Jews and non-believers, alike, have united to challenge the Israeli narrative in creative ways that are companion to the resistance on the ground in Palestine. Yet, there is more to do.

    No Israeli political leader, politician, or other mainstay of that state should receive calm passage through any of our own. Where they walk, where they talk, what they say must be challenged by protest at each and every step along the way. Their lobbyists, PR firms, corporate partners, banks and funded think tanks must understand that to support Israel is to invite a boycott of their own.

    Political leadership in our own countries must come to realize that our collective resolve carries a political price for their willing, blind obedience to Israel. Visiting academics, scientists and artists that fail to challenge Israeli apartheid, occupation and ethnic cleansing, themselves, must understand that the sale of their soul is not a purchase of ours.

    Not all that long ago, the world community came together, as one, to break the back of apartheid in South Africa. It did not happen overnight. Nor was it accomplished through the prism of one view or a single overarching political strategy or without great personal sacrifice.

    Resistance demands diversity in thought and action. It is a lesson learned… and taught… by those among us that have blazed a long, and often difficult, path in the march of freedom throughout the world. The challenge to Israel is, today, no different.

    History has shown that, without the ever-present voice of Malcolm X, Martin Luther King’s legacy would be very different than the one we honor now.

    Those who find comfort in Gandhi’s passivesalt march, yet deprecate the notion that throughout his journey he understood militant resistance was, at times, a necessary means to liberation, do not know the reality of the steps he took along the way.

    Offered a chance to end his imprisonment after 17 years if only he renounced violence as a legitimate means of fighting apartheid, Mandela refused and returned to his cellfor ten more years.

    This is by no means a call to arms or a plea for violence. It is, however, a verse of solidarity and love for our Palestinian brothers and sisters on the front lines of occupied Palestine.

    In the darkest of their hour, they are not alone.

    Today, throughout the world, their family in resistance stands with, and for, them as they struggle for their freedom by any means necessary.
