Palestine’s vision of peace is clear

This speech is reproduced in the hope that the international community will join in efforts to have Israel made accountable for its obligations. To do this an awareness of the real plight and not the distorted propaganda of the American and Israeli public affairs committee needs to be made. I hope that this will help to achieve that aim so that there is a well deserved peace within the region. Do your own research if you will to satisfy yourselves that much of the western world has been feed a bigoted view of the situation confronting the Palestinians.

2012: What's the 'real' truth?

In a painful and historic decision, Palestine recognized the State of Israel based on pre-1967 territory, conceding over 78 percent of Palestinian land.

We still wish to believe that our Israeli neighbors do not expect the Palestinian people to live under a system of apartheid. The desire of a peace- and freedom-loving nation for independence can’t be eliminated by force.

About HeliTramp

12 Years in the Royal Australian Navy led me into the commercial aviation arena where I exercised the privileges of my Airline Transport Licences in Helicopters and Airplanes conducting interesting operations throughout Australia, Papua New Guinea, Middle East, Iran, South Africa, Sudan, Equatorial Guinea and the US. Retired now and maintaining an active interest in the aviation field, also teaching gliding throughout the local area to the next generation of aviators. My spare time is spent trying to spoil my grandchildren whilst their innocence still makes it fun.
