“Palestine belongs to the Arabs in the same sense that England belongs to the English or France to the French. It is wrong and inhuman to impose the Jews on the Arabs… Surely it would be a crime against humanity to reduce the proud Arabs so that Palestine can be restored to the Jews partly or wholly as their national home.” —Gandhi, India
“We know too well that our freedom is incomplete without the freedom of the Palestinians.” —Nelson Mandela, South Africa
Gandhi and Mandela knew well the faces of imperialism and colonialism. In the above statements, they told us the truth about Palestine. Our problems of today is rooted to imperial projects and militarism. Thus, this is jeopardising our world peace, the harmony to live together and the rule of law.
For the past 70 years, the Palestinians have been killed, jailed and misplaced so their own land can house the Jews of Eastern and Western Europe. That is morally wrong!
I condemn imperialism. Palestine belongs to the Palestinians! In the same way that Estonia belongs to the Estonians!
Palestinians are facing what the Estonians of the past centuries had been facing—brutality and occupation! Estonian writer Mati Unt chronicled about the killings of Palestinians in his book, The Ball of Autumn.
Estonian government is on the wrong side of history.
We have forgotten the Estonian history.
