Golda Meir Israel’s 4th prime minister was born in Ukraine. Her real name is Golda Mabovitch.
The new movie Golda attempts to glorify a Zionist war criminal and a racist bigot.
Golda Meir made some of the most racist and genocidal anti-Palestinian statements:
1- There were no such thing as Palestinians.
2- It was not as though there was a Palestinian people in Palestine considering itself as a Palestinian people and we came and threw them out and took their country away from them. They did not exist, Meir said.
3- When peace comes we will perhaps in time be able to forgive the Arabs for killing our sons but it will be harder for us to forgive them for having forced us to kill their sons.
4- It was our habit that for anything that has to do with settlements, outposts, land expropriations and so on we simply do [it] and do not talk [about it].
Meir’s rule (1969-1974) saw a surge in West Bank settlements.
Meir aimed to remove indigenous Palestinians to create space for Jewish immigrants.
Meir orchestrated Israel’s 1956 invasion of Egypt aiming at seizing control over the Sinai Peninsula and Suez Canal.
Between 8000 to 10000 Egyptians were killed during the invasion.
In the 1970s Israel under Golda Meir poisoned Palestinian land in an ethnic cleansing operation.
In 1969 Meir bragged about Michale Rohan’s act of burning Al-Aqsa Mosque.
No movie will ever whitewash the crimes and massacres Israeli leaders like Golda Meir committed against Palestinians.
