The 19th Anniversary of The Ibrahimi Mosque Massacre
The Palestinian people have their own calendar in which almost every day of the year goes back to a painful and atrocious massacre that the Israeli Occupation committed against our people. Everyday we have to look back in anger and remember those who fell victim in the course of the our Palestinian history that has been recorded by our people’s blood, sacrifices and suffering under the most brutal and inhumane colonial entity of Zionism.
Today marks the 19th anniversary of the Ibrahimi Mosque massacre in Hebron on Feruary 25, 1994, when Baruch Goldstein, an Israeli settler and a member of the far-right Israeli Kach movement, opened his hateful fire on unarmed Palestinian Muslims while they were in Sujoud position inside killing 29 of them and wounding 150 within 48-hour time. If he wasn’t killed by survivors then, the number of victims would have continued to rise.
And guess what the Israeli Occupation did then? They just locked those victims who were left between dead and injured inside and didn’t allow ambulances access to rescue them and forced media blackout. But once the news about this massacre spread out, revolutionary Palestinian charged with anger rioted throughout Hebron and the number of martyrs about Palestinian people reached 50. In the weeks following the massacre, thousands of Israelis traveled to Goldstein’s grave to celebrate Goldstein’s actions. You learn this and then you laugh in bitterness at the absurd that all this is happening to us and then we are the ones accused of hatred and terrorism because we’re just resisting and defending our lands and people’s lives and dignity.
And the world was watching Israel mass killing us inside our worshipping place and did nothing. Israel doesn’t have respect for any place. This was proved again during the 22 successive days of Gaza massacre in 2008-09 when mosques, schools, hospitals and ambulances didn’t survive from Israel’s destructive internationally banned missiles. Will Israel be ever be held accountable? Nobody knows as the impunity of Israel by the world’s silence and their commitment to Israel’s security continues.
Today as we are commemorating the lives of those victims, we renew our loyalty to bling their souls justice so they can rest in peace. Israel will sooner or later confront justice and be punished for all their crimes against inhumanity.
A very sad day for Palestine and humanity. It shows how sick these zionists are that Goldstein’s grave is now a shrine where he is celebrated as some kind of hero to this day. And as usual the world turns a blind eye as the zionists continue massacres on the Palestinians, steal more and more Palestinian land, and stick two fingers up to the world while doing so. Shame Shame Shame !!!

My Dear Shahd:
It is outrage upon outrage, seemingly endless. One could suppose that brutal Israeli occupation will do that. Someday there shall be justice. My prayers are that justice comes sooner as opposed to later.
Be well and stay courageous.
peace and respect,

It seems I received this post a year late? Having learned much about prophecy in that time, to my understanding the Israeli state is prohibited by the scriptures; yet the time must come when “none may buy or sell without the mark of the beast” upon them, and so the world must make a peace with Israel before it can be destroyed – taking with it it’s supporters into everlasting fire. Keep safe and well Shahd.
