“I do not apologize for the takeover of the region by the Jews from the Palestinians in the same way I do not apologize for the takeover of America by the whites from the Red Indians or the takeover of Australia from the blacks. It is natural for a superior race to dominate an inferior one.

Winston Churchill

Over 35,000 Palestinian deaths in seven months, classified as televised genocide by many human rights institutions and many polled North Americans, have triggered a wave of gaslighting among politicians and mainstream pundits. Protests against the Israeli Operation in the Gaza Strip are underway at university campuses across North America.

Police crackdowns on protests highlight American hypocrisy, where free speech champions silence dissent while neo-Nazi protests are protected to serve Western interests.

Central to this issue is the dichotomy between how Western powers perceive themselves and the harsh realities of enforcing hegemonic power and security for client states like Israel.

Israel, a product of Western colonialism, originated as a refuge for Jews fleeing Russian pogroms in the late 1800s. The Balfour Declaration, implemented by Britain after WWI, designated Palestine as a homeland for Jews, ignoring the indigenous Arab population, who would be marginalized and vilified for decades.

Winston Churchill, celebrated for defying Nazi tyranny, held views on Palestine that deeply wounded its people. His support for Zionism, driven by political expediency, silenced Palestinian voices and stripped them of their land. Western powers, from Washington to London, turned a blind eye to Palestinian suffering, compounding the stain of human conscience.

After WWII, the United States inherited colonial hegemony, facilitating Israel’s birth at the expense of indigenous rights. France, Germany, and others supplied Israel with arms while Palestinians languished in refugee camps.

Today, Western elites balance Israel’s “right to exist” and “right to self-defence” with lip service to human rights, perpetuating bias in media coverage of the conflict.

Since the 1917 Balfour Declaration, tens of thousands of Palestinian civilians have perished, from historic massacres to ongoing violence. Yet, platforms like Britain’s Piers Morgan’s Uncensored sidelines Palestinian horrors to condemn Hamas without addressing Israel’s destruction of Gazan civil society.

American mainstream media, aligned with government support for Israel, smears critics, labeling protests as “anti-Semitic,” erasing dissenting American Jewish voices. Figures like Bill Maher deflect legitimate grievances, blaming “wokeness” for protests instead of acknowledging televised genocide.

Yet, despite media complicity and staggering loss of life, the Palestinian spirit endures, a testament to resilience against injustice. To confront the legacy of

leaders like Churchill, we must acknowledge our complicity in Palestinian suffering and strive for a future where all are treated with dignity and respect.
