Why we shouldn’t celebrate this

Dear Editor,

Re: Israel share wealth with Samoa 

Why should Samoa even contemplate the idea of celebrating “Israel’s independence”? 

What insanity is this? Israel is an occupier and an oppressor!

The event should be a commemoration of this fact! How can Samoa who fought for her independence from an occupier and an oppressor be so misled in this? 

To celebrate Israeli “independence” in Samoa, would be celebrating the occupation and oppression of Palestinian people. 

Are you as a people ok with this? 

I for one will never be ok with this. It is morally reprehensible and people have to wake up from their dazed apathy to stand up for those who are really fighting for their independence and existence, the Palestinians!
