The War-Locks and The Hem-Locks and the The Dread-Locks: Have any of you questioned why Israelites are behaving they way they are behaving, hating, brewing hate, and harming Palestinians, bombing them, expelling them, evicting them from their homes and Palestine, usurping their homes, usurping their property, stealing with self-authorised permits and auto-biographed authorisations ? Creating Apartheid, Walls, Barriers, Discriminating, Separating, and Out-Casting Palestinians ? This is abhorrent aberrant behaviour of hating others and stealing from others ? Where are the expelled Palestinians supposed to go ? Why are the expelled families not recompensated or resettled ? Why are Israelites carrying out these barbaric crimes of hatred and Evil ? Why dont Jewish people condemn Israelites and Zionists ? Why are Jewish people and Jewish Race silent and supportive of the War crimes in Israel by Israelites and Jewry War-locks and Hem-locks ? Why don't Jewry condemn the Apartheid of Israelite Jews and JEWISH ZIONSTS ? WHY IS THEIR RACE SO SO SILENT ABOUT THESE CRIMES ?
