|Boycott Israeli Dates!|
(CHICAGO 06/05/2014) -- Thursday, June 5, marked the 47th year since Israel launched its Six Day War of aggression, occupying what was left of historic Palestine. During that fateful period from June 5 to 12, 1967, Jerusalem came under attack and Al Aqsa was threatened with obliteration.
The Six Day War, when Israel displaced an additional 350,000 Palestinians from their homes, was not the end of the Zionist enterprise. It is still continuing today.
Consider these statistics: Since 1967, Israel has:
- Demolished 27,000 Palestinian homes and structures
- Incarcerated nearly 800,000 Palestinians as political prisoners – 40 percent of the male population.
- Erected the Apartheid Wall and more than 600 checkpoints and closures, prohibiting freedom of movement for Palestinians
