OneWorld: Freedom for Palestine

We are ‘One World’

Earlier today, the Jewish Chronicle featured a story about Israeli anger towards the alternative rock band Cold Play:

British band Coldplay have angered Israeli fans after they backed the musicians behind a song about Israeli “injustice” and human rights abuses.

Earlier today Coldplay alerted fans of their official Facebook page to OneWorld’s ‘Freedom for Palestine’ single,” and posted a link to its website.

After posting this article on my fan page, a Word Play friend pointed out the following:

“Remember to include the link, the JC has deliberately not included! Currently the Israelis are waging a campaign against it; almost twice as many dislikes as likes. With enough effort that can easily be turned around.

It’s a powerful video, with shining faces, uplifting voices, and infectious catchiness. And easy enough for anyone to understand!”

I’m now about to hit ‘like’ on the One World fan page.

Oh, and here’s the video.  Join ‘One World’ to spread the word of ‘Freedom for Palestine.’

    Hopefully all arabs will have freedoms for their brutal leaders. They must demand it from Muslim leaders as much as from Jews or else their actions are hypocritical.

  2. Arabs and Muslims are theior own worst enemies

    Selective political leanings……Supporting arab terrorist murderers. No clue of fact. No idea of Jewish history, all those thousands of years in the Land of Israel. Ignoring the fact that “Palestine” never existed EVER. Ignoring the fact that “Palestinians” are a fraud who have no separate culture, language etc from the rest of the nomads and bedouins and other arabs in the area. I’d say this silly ditty is futile, naieve and Coldplay have ruined their own reputation by supporting this….Not that they had one in my mind anyway with their “dad” music and stealing of other artists ideas. Good luch Coldplay….Chris Martin you have out done yourself son…..Mazel tov

    Coldplay show their total ignorance of the situation in the ME. There is no such race as the “Palestinian People”. Until 1948 the term applied to the Jews only. Then Arab tactics changed. King Hussein explained why at the Arab League summit in Amman in November 1988: “The appearance of a distinct Palestinian national personality comes as an answer to Israel’s claim that Palestine is Jewish.” In so many words, said the Hashemite monarch, the Palestinian identity is an artificial propaganda ploy. The Pals are merely Arab immigrants into Israel who harbour a visceral hatred of the Jews and will never make peace with them because their only desire is the destruction of the Jewish state of Israel. By contrast, the Jews have lived there since c1500BC (albeit, a lot of them were exiled in AD70 by the Romans) when they were led into the land by Joshua after being freed from Egyptian slavery. This song bangs on about about the security barrier! One hast to ask, why was it built in the first place? Answer, To stop years of Arab suicide bombers, you morons!!!! And why doesn’t the this Coldplay bit of sentimental dribble, mention the 1000′s of rockets and mortars fired at Israeli civilians from the Gaza strip in recent years which eventually led to the operation Cast Lead. When the brave HAMAS fighters hid behind women and children for protection, so that Israel’s IDF would not shoot at them. Coldplay, your song is sentimental garbage based on lying Arab propaganda. Your support for terrorist like HAMAS and Fatah is sickening – there is no difference between them, they both want to see the end of the Jewish state, only their methods differ. HAMAS use bombs and rockets, Fatah does the politics with Obama, the Pope, the UN, Jimmy Carter and anyone else who is stupid enough to listen to their lies – like Coldplay!!! All used as useful idiots in their quest to destroy the one tiny Jewish state in the midst of 22 brutal, oppressive Arab dictatorships. Hang your head in shame, Chris

    People in the 21st century now want ethical brands. Many household names built their brand name at the dawn of the 20th century

    Let the 21st century see new ethical developments and let it be a dawn for newer more dynamic ethical brands

    Yet money is the root cause to why the Middle Crisis is continuing, oppressive regimes such as Israel, are having their genocidal ways assisted and funded by unethical organisations/brands.

    Boycott organisations/companies that support Israeli genocide and oppression of innocent Palestinians…These unethical companies include,
    • Nestle,
    • Coca Cola,
    • McDonald’s
    • Starbucks
    • Marks & Spencer
    • Selfridges
    • And others…

    Peace and love to all human beings.

    There is much confusion and lies spread about Muslims and Islam…
    If you wish to know more about Muslims and Islam, go to

    The oppressive dictatorships in the Middle East are actually U.S funded dictators put into place to ensure that US hegemony and Imperialism…i.e. McDonald’s and Starbuck etc (and the MAIN issue of tightening the grip on natural resource interests…OIL!) is kept in place. Any uprising by for social justice is threatened by U.S sanctions and military action (from the many US aircraft carriers across the Muslim and Arab world).

    The Arab Spring and pursuit for freedom (Islam also encourages freedom) is rightly what Arab citizens desire and what they deserve, especially as they lived for decades under rulers loyal to foreign imperialist forces.

    Just as Britain had its Oliver Cromwell inspired revolution, the Arab world is having its “Cromwell moment.”

    The Jewish people have been subject to abuse and hatred in Europe for centuries, Jews were given full protection in Muslim lands throughout history. I for one never want to see a Holocaust of human beings ever happen again, this also includes the holocaust of innocent Bosnian Muslim in Srebrenica (1995). As well as those countless innocent civilians in Iraq and Afghanistan, Pakistan who have been killed by U.S bombings and drone attacks.

    But why are Palestinians paying for the crimes of Germany and Europe during WWII?

    If a Russian Jew (who has no history in Palestine, who’s entire family history is in Europe) can go to Israel and be given Palestinian land and settler status…Why can’t a Palestinian in forced exile, whose family has been in Palestine for 1000’s years, return to Palestine???

    No matter how slick the Israeli PR machine tries to be, they still cannot hide the fact that…With regards to Palestine…

    Over 64+ UN resolutions have been broken by Israel

    Israel’s use of illegal weapons such as phosphorus (which is banned under international law) on innocent Palestinians, has killed 1000’s of innocent Palestinian men, women, children and babies

    Countless acts of aggression and human rights abuses committed by Israel on the Palestinian people

    Stealing of Palestinians farming produce by Israel

    Israel’s use of Palestinian children in child labour, in farming fruit and vegetables, in growing and collecting dates.

    Bulldozing Palestinian family homes

    Killing westerners who are peace activists

    Denying the Palestinian people clean drinking water, food, medical help, electricity, and essential home building materials.

    Denying Palestinians their basic human rights

    These are not lies.

    In the interest of free speech and dialogue this is a song about protesting against tyranny, and demanding under international law, full human rights, and full civil rights for Palestinians.

    First of all Germany and Europe did commit war crimes against Jews during WWII, but why are Arabs paying for the crimes of Germany and Europe?

    Israel denies Palestinians water, food, work, medicine, building materials, civil liberties, human rights, freedom, bulldoze their homes, taking their land, crops, wealth, gold, creating false propaganda against Palestinians, sticking them in ghettos called Gaza and the West Bank, and having settlers (invaders) and Israeli soldiers (cowards) shoot innocent Palestinians men, women, children and babies in the head…Same as what the Nazis did to the Jews in WWII. The Jews are doing the same to Palestinians now…Israel = Fascist state.

    Lets us also look at why people, including Coldplay are waking up to Israel’s crimes…
    • Arabs cannot buy property from Jews in Israel
    • Arab Children are used as slave labour in Israel – LOOK AT CARMEL AGREXCO AND OTHER Israeli corporations.
    • Arabs do not have workers rights in Israel – LOOK AT CARMEL AGREXCO
    • Israel FORCES Arab children to be human shields for Israeli troops.
    • Israel STEALS the organs of innocent Arabs – After they shoot them.
    • Those organs are given to Jews who need organ transplants in Israeli hospitals
    • Israel STEALS the identities of innocent British and Irish nationals
    • Israel STEALS Palestinian farming land and farming produce
    • We all remember the stealing of British and Irish passport identities by Israel to commit murder on foreign land.
    • Israel did this once before in the 1980’s
    • Israel LIED to Britain, and said they would never do it again, but they did.
    • Israel ALSO oppresses and kills Palestinian Christians…I wonder what Christians in America and Europe have to say about this???
    • Israel has the MOST WMD’s in the Middle East.
    • Israel DENIES Palestinians Human Rights
    • Israel DENIES Palestinians Civil Rights
    • Israel DENIES Palestinians Jobs
    • Israel DENIES Palestinians water
    • Israel DENIES Palestinians food
    • Israel DENIES Palestinians medical treatment
    • Israel DENIES Palestinians medicine
    • Israel DENIES Palestinian women of the care of Midwifes and Doctors – Many Palestinian women are forces to wait at checkpoints with no Doctors or Midwifes present whilst giving birth.
    • Israel poisons the little Palestinian farming land that is used to grow crops.
    • Israel DENIES Palestinians building materials
    • Israel DESTROYS Palestinian schools
    • Israel DENIES Palestinians schooling (many Palestinian kids have their schooling disrupted by by waiting at overly inhumane Israeli checkpoints)
    • Israeli settlers steal Palestinian land
    • Israeli settlers are armed and use innocent Palestinian men, women, children and babies as target practice.
    • Israeli settlers also fire rockets at Palestinians.
    • Israeli setters have burnt Palestinian Mosques and Palestinian Churches

    Zionism was founded by Theodore Hertzl…NOT Abraham, Moses, Jesus or Muhammad (peace be upon them)

    The true teachings of Judaism is being pushed away by fundamentalist Zionists who do not adhere to the teachings of Judaism, but wish to serve their own gain, even if it means doing so by force, and at the detriment of innocent Palestinian people.
    Zionism = Racism

    It’s one rule for those citizens who are Jewish, and no rights and discrimination for all who are considered “Goyims”.

    Jews, Muslims and Christians used to live in peace in Palestine and Jerusalem
    Jews and Muslims used to live and work together, even babysit each other’s kids before 1947

    Judaism teaches that Jews are not to have their own nation until the Messiah (Jesus Christ – Peace be upon him) returns.

    Jews and Muslims are actually genetic cousins. Males from both religions have beards, caps, and both Muslim and Jewish men are circumcised. Jewish women and Muslim women also cover up and wear headscarves.

    Arabic and Hebrew are Sister Languages, both share very similar phonetic sounds and pronunciations.

    Judaism, Christianity and Islam are all interlinked. All faiths share the same teachings i.e. One God, The Ten Commandments, share teachings of the prophets (peace be upon them), and have lots in common.

    Jews, Muslims, and Christians share names,
    • Aaron – Harun,
    • Richard – Rashid,
    • Daniel – Danyal,
    • John – Yahya
    • Zackary – Zackariya – Zakria and Zakir
    • Sara – Sarah – Sahra
    • Zara – Zarah – Zahra
    • Ben (Jewish for son of) – Bin (Muslim for son of) – Bint (Muslim for daughter of)
    • And many many more names…

    With all the hatred from Zionists aimed at Muslim Palestinians and Christian Palestinians, we must remind ourselves of the fact that Muhammad (peace be upon him) was actually mentioned in the Torah, thousands of years before the Quran.

    Song of Solomon 5:16

    חִכֹּו֙ מַֽמְתַקִּ֔ים וְכֻלֹּ֖ו מַחֲמַדִּ֑ים זֶ֤ה דֹודִי֙ וְזֶ֣ה רֵעִ֔י בְּנֹ֖ות יְרוּשָׁלִָֽם׃

    “Hikko Mamittakim we kullo Muhammadim Zehdoodeh wa Zehraee Bayna Jerusalem.”

    5:16 “His mouth is most sweet: yes, he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem.”

    Zionist Israel can TRY to use Public Relations and TRY to hide its lies, looting, rape, killing, fraud, mass genocide of Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank
    The world is waking up to Israel’s lies and cheating Palestinians of their human rights and civil rights.

    Palestinians are now like black people were in South Africa – Under international law Palestinians need to be given their human rights and civil rights, as well as the right to return, like South Africa, were black people and white people live together now, a “one state solution” is key in healing rifts between Muslim and Jews.

    We have to remember that Muslims did not tear down King Solomon’s Temple, it was the Romans, surely then Israel should ask Italy for compensation? (this is parallel to asking Germany for compensation for war crimes during WWII)
    Just as people shouted “FREE SOUTH AFRICA!”

    Let us say to all peace loving people of the world (in the USA, Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia, Australia, Latin America)…FREE PALESTINE!
