Non-Jewish Factor in Land Annexation
by Steven Shamrak
In 1903 after a US proposal for canal rights was rejected by Colombia, Panama, with US support, proclaimed its independence from Colombia.
In 1939 Germany and the USSR signed the Ribbentrop-Molotov agreement. USSR invaded and annexed Western Poland, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia. (The Ukraine and Byelorussia still benefit from the annexation of eastern Poland).
In 1945, East Prussia was removed from Germany and was divided between Poland and Russia. (It still belongs to Russia).
In 1945, part of eastern Germany was given to Poland. (It has not been returned).
On 8 August 1945 the USSR declared war against Japan. The entire Japanese population of Southern Sakhalin and the Kuril Islands was repatriated in 1946-1948. Islands were annexed by USSR. (Islands are still under Russian control.)
On 6 of December 1921 Catholic-dominated Ireland re-gained its independence from Britain. (In spite of conflict between Catholics and Protestants in Northern Ireland, UK still colonizes Northern Ireland.)
When Kuwait got its independence from Britain in 1961, Iraq revived an old claim that Kuwait had been part of an Ottoman province in southern Iraq and, therefore, rightfully belongs to Iraq. (This claim has never been properly addressed.)
By 1979, Morocco virtually annexed all Western Sahara - formerly Spanish Sahara - Western Sahara is a region of north-western Africa.
There are many other lands and territories that are still colonized and occupied by France, Britain and USA that I did not put in this compilation. And nobody cares!
Tibet, occupied by China; Northern Cyprus, occupied by Turkey… There are hundreds of major land disputes around the world. Some of them are even much older and bloodier than Arab-Israel conflict.
Only Israel ‘deserved the honour’ of full International attention!
