This is What I Think Today:
The Permanent Members of the UN Security Council (UNSC), including the United States of America, the United Kingdom, and France, have given their approval to the recent Zionist military operation in Gaza that turned into an outright genocide, which even Israel does not try to cover. Meanwhile, China and Russia, the other two current UNSC members, have adopted a different stance, advocating for an immediate ceasefire and ending the ongoing genocide. Over time, Western media’s brainwashing has often disseminated information that has shaped public perception on certain topics, which, in light of current events, can be viewed as “modern myths” or, more directly, misinformation.
Some of these misconceptions have revolved around China and Russia, painting them as autocratic states lacking in justice and freedom. However, this hasn’t deterred the United States, the United Kingdom, and France from engaging in significant economic and diplomatic relations with these nations. Meanwhile, Israel has been frequently referred to as “the only democracy in the Middle East” in Western brainwashing narratives. This assertion obscures the reality of Israel’s fascist behaviour, characterised by a military agenda aimed at exerting control over the Middle East, imposing apartheid-like conditions on the Palestinian population, and suppressing any form of Palestinian resistance or dissent.
The history of the Zionist state has been marked by a series of bloodbaths from its inception. Under the guise of maintaining alliances with Arab rulers, the Western powers have furthered their imperialist objectives through their association with Israel, providing it with political support, arms, and sponsorship. Some leaders in the region, with the assistance of Israeli and Western intelligence agencies, have shown a willingness to betray their own people to preserve their grip on power. However, global dynamics have shifted since the end of World War II.
I was born at the dawn of independence. I belong to a generation that has witnessed a world moving towards greater liberty. Like many others in my generation, I did not live under colonialism, and I have zero tolerance for hegemony, imperialism, or colonisation in any nation, much less the one where I was born.
I was raised to value freedom, independence, fairness, and equality under the law as the most precious ideals for any human being. While I still hold democracy in high regard, witnessing how Western democracies have responded to the Gaza crisis, dehumanised the Palestinian people, and continued to support oppression, injustice and genocide has prompted me to question my faith in the democratic system.
Despite the efforts of multiple governments, primarily those championing freedom and democracy (USA, France and Britain, precisely) to sway our beliefs, we remain committed to the principles of democracy, justice, and freedom. We are acutely aware of the role Israel plays as an instrument of imperialism, and we recognise that imperialistic ambitions persist worldwide, often spearheaded by nations such as the United States, France, and Great Britain. Yet, these ambitions are often framed as defending democracy and freedom rather than outright imperialism. This distortion of truth is no longer as effective as Israel’s actions in Gaza and the West Bank, are discrediting and unveiling the myth. They are clearly in defence of military occupation rather than the principles of democracy and freedom. The Western powers, being aware of this, continue to support Israel nonetheless. They are no longer models of what their people continue to believe in. When you look at the huge Pro-Palestinian demonstrations in the Western cities, you understand that the Western governments, even elected, have lost any credibility.
