Perhaps I have finally come to fathom why zionists have usually favoured the Palestinians-are-reptiles metaphor. No matter how mighty Israel’s blows, the never kill the Palestinians spirit of regeneration. Seeing the Palestinians it killed and the lands it brutally razed, Israel must be in pain, real pain, over the fact that Palestinains always, always, rise up from the ashes of Israeling blazing fires and the abyss it keeps throwing us into. One more thing, Israel, people have already, defying your racist narratives, started to use the simile ‘like a Palestinian’ to connote perseverance and persistence.
This is Beit Lahia, North Gaza. I lost count of how many times Israel uproots fields and destroyed greenhouses or how many farmers it killed. The Photos speak for themselves.
