Palestine is important not because it is as beautiful as Tuscany, nor because the Palestinians are suffering, and not even because it is occupied by a Jewish state. What we need to understand is that the Jews have been handed Palestine not because they were so smart or so strong or so devoted, but by Imperial design. Palestine is important because it is believed to be a linchpin of Empire, one of the key points necessary to control the world. Such was the conviction of the 19th century British Empire-builders of the Rhodes variety, and this conviction has been recently and continuously reformulated into the terms of modern geopolitics. Once an arcane theory developed by HJ Mackinder, it has grown up to become a driving force behind globalism. We shall not go into its rational interpretation of mythological imagery; we must simply accept that this is the way the world’s powerful elite think.
We can often find ourselves in situations when we need to make the case for freedom, justice and equality for Palestinians, or counter Israeli propaganda or general misconceptions about the issues and the aim of these meetings is to equip our members, supporters and friends with key facts and arguments on some of the major contentious issues and to raise any concerns or matters that we may feel uncertain about.
