WITH reference to the continuing debate of the Palestinian nation’s plight. Whether or not anyone dislikes or is uncomfortable with its actuality, whether or not it contradicts or confronts anyone’s prejudices or amoral intent, it is an inalienable right of all subject peoples to seek to attain autonomous self-determination.

No amount of recited pseudo-legal gibberish can ever legitimise inherently unlawful acts, such as: the criminal seizure of the homeland of an integral nation or the denial to its population of the rights due all peoples of the Earth.

By definition of circumstance, the victims have the entitlement to pursue salvation by whatever means necessitated by their situation. It is profound indictment of the western world that it elects not to recognise and uphold the reality of that principle.
