I’m Sick of Zionist Occupation


3. I´m sick of 63 years of Israeli occupation (+video)

I´m sick of The Wall

I´m sick of the checkpoints between Palestinian cities

I´m sick of illegal Israeli settlers and settlements

I´m sick of having the Hebrew language on my ID card

I´m sick of people not knowing anything about our history

but knowing so much about Jewish history

I´m sick of people ignoring the Palestinian Right of Return

and accepting the Jewish Law of Return

I´m sick of the Oslo Agreement which no one here

wanted in the first place

I´m sick of the Palestinian Authority

having zero authority

I´m sick of watching my father being humiliated at checkpoints

by people my age and younger

I´m sick of my international friends having to lie about

coming to visit; being interrogated, stripsearched

and sometimes deported in the process

I´m sick of people not understanding

what “Occupation” is

I´m sick of being scared all the time

I´m sick of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

being a normal state of being here in Palestine

I´m sick of how ineffective the UN has become

I´m sick of International Humanitarian Law

not applying to the State of Israel

I´m sick of how fighting for basic human rights for Palestinians

or being critical of Israeli policy

is so often labelled “anti-Semitic”

I´m sick of the fact that everybody forgets I´m a Semite

I´m sick of hearing Israelis complain about discrimination

when the State of Israel was founded on a principle of ethnic purity

I´m sick of living in a time

when racial profiling has become acceptable

I´m sick of constantly being treated as a suspect

I´m sick of how mainstream media portrays us and our situation

I´m sick of the whole world caring about Gilad Shalit

when there are more than 7000 Palestinians inside Israeli prisons

I´m sick of trying to defend myself, friends or countrymen

and being labelled a terrorist

I´m sick of the fact that everywhere I go

I can see The Wall, a settlement or Israeli soldier


I´m sick of



of Zionist occupation
