Photo-Essay: We All Can Help Save Zabuba

Photo-Essay: We All Can Help Save Zabuba

The villagers of Zabuba have successfully resisted Israeli pressure to evacuate their ancestral holdings throughout 36 years of occupation and colonisation but fear that the erection of the wall, the pollution of their water supply and the channeling of sewerage through the centre of their village will finally render Zabuba unviable.

Responsibility for this outrage is not Israel's alone but is shared by the its allies around the world which are financing the occupation of Palestine with aid and trade agreements and doing their utmost to distract the world's attention away from Israeli atrocities in Palestine as they prepare for a war on Iraq.

Nevertheless,, there is still hope for the people of Zabuba. The government in Washington is currently considering the approval a $12 billion aid package from the United States to fund its ongoing occupation of Palestine, the expansion of Jewish settlements, the construction of the "Apartheid Wall", its"incursions" into Palestinians town and cities, the purchase new military equipment and the balancing of its budget (under great strain due to massive military spending and settlement subsidies). This aid request is in addition to the US$3 billion Israel receives each year from the United States in military and economic aid.
