Jericho - The Oldest City on Earth
A sad day in Palestine again, as Israeli forces attacked a prison in Jericho to capture an "already captured" Palestinian charged with attempt to assassinate a right wing Israeli leader that supports the excommunication of the Palestinian people.
The lack of respect for Palestinian Police is undeniably disgusting and is also the root of evil with internal Palestinian problems, which, I think is the whole reason why the Police are disrespected by the Israeli's, to cause internal strife within our lands.
The internal strife I talk about, is the gangs here within Palestine. They are civilians that carry guns around the city, they shoot into the air at night, they drive around stolen cars that do not have plates, they try to intimidate their own people; they are Palestinian cowboys. They think that they alone will liberate Palestine with these archaic techniques using violence and what not when they don't understand how the world works anymore, mainly because they have probably never traveled outside of there controlled borders and there lack of formal and cultured education.
It is illegal in Palestine to have civilians carry guns but we see it everyday. The days that the Police are in the city, things feel so good and so normal. They check every car to make sure it is registered and licensed, that the driver is licensed, and no civilians in the street have guns.
You see, our system here works differently then in the rest of the world. It is illegal for us to have our own police according to Israel. If Israel decides to come into our city they warn our people that if they see anyone with a uniform they will shoot and kill him. So when things just start to feel good again, Israel decides they need to come monitor the city, which means, all police hide and all civilians are confined to there home as they drive around in there hummers, etc.
I am not sure if they showed footage of the prisoners and police as they were exiting the prison, didn't you think it was odd that they didn't have any clothes on? Well, the reason for that is, like I said, if they see you wearing a Palestinian uniform, they will be shot and killed, no warning and no questions asked.
The Israeli's do not "work with" the Palestinian Police and government to bring criminals to justice, they undermine there power and their pride instead.
I am proud and will always be proud of our government, Hamas or what not, because they will not undermine my people, my government, and the police that are working to make our country better.
We do not have any choices. We do not have any power.
How are powerless & hopeless people to act? Discuss.
