According to Ghada Karmi, terrorism was a Jewish invention, and it was practiced by Jewish terrorists during the 1940s, before the Palestinians adopted it later in the 1970s. Ms Karmi’s family fled Jerusalem after some Jewish terrorists blew up a Palestinian neighbor’s house in 1948. Yet, they were hoping to return to their home, but were denied entry by the newly formed state of Israel. This is how Ghada Karmi and her family became refugees. Her parents were never allowed to return home to Jerusalem, they finally died and were buried in a neighboring country (Syria?).
Ms. Karmi, since she became a British citizen, was allowed to visit Jerusalem, where she was born and lived for the first 9 years of her life, but only as a British tourist with a tourist visa. The Israeli authorities made it clear to her that she was not allowed to return to live to her birthplace, and to her house, in Jerusalem. Also, neither her parents, nor her, ever received any compensation for their house which was given to Jewish settlers.
My thinking is that when the state of Israel is razing a Catholic church’s property, it is acting consistently with what it has been doing to Palestinian people since 1948.
