“Did the Zionists have the legal or moral right to invade Arab Palestine, uproot its Arab citizens from their homes and seize all Arab property for themselves just based on the “religious” claim that their forefathers lived there thousands of years ago?”

–Malcolm X on Zionism – Egyptian Gazette, September 17, 1964.

For years now the plight of the Palestinian people has fallen on deaf ears even though human rights activists have always voiced support for their cause. It is a positive development that Superpower China has openly declared that it supports the independence of a Palestinian state, which has East Jerusalem as its capital. Addressing the Arab League, the Chinese president also announced a $7.6mn grant for a solar power project to improve Palestinians’ well-being.

Speaking for the first time at Arab League headquarters in Egypt, Chinese President Xi Jinping stressed that the Palestinian issue should not be marginalized, as he declared Beijing’s support for the Palestinian peace process. Hopefully with substantial support the international community will intervene on behalf of the innocent Palestinian children who are being bombed in their homes and no one charges Israel for the war crimes it is responsible for.
