ﾓThe lie of Godﾒs chosen peopleﾔ. By Abu Nidaa (in a section of the paper entitled ﾑSharing with readersﾒ). ﾓThe place is the area where you cross between Jordan and the cleanest spot on Godﾒs earth which is Palestine. From 6 OﾒClock in the morning until 4 OﾒClock in the afternoon we did not go for more than half-an hour from the Jordanian stop point until we got to the biggest catastrophe which is the Israeli stop point. My wife is ‘Um Nidaa’ and my daughter is Nidaa and my grandchildren are Hatem and Fayez whose age does not exceed 6. We stayed all of us waiting to be permitted to cross into Palestine, the land of our fathers and grandfathers.” “And I kept on saying to the responsible officer and the irresponsible soldiers, ‘both of them originated from Russia and eastern Europe,’ I kept on asking them what did this kid do who are Americans in nationality spending 6 hours waiting? Isnﾒt this terrorism which if it had occurred to one of those Israelis anywhere in the world the whole world would have exploded with questions about anti-semitism.” “What does peace mean to you, enemies of peace? What does democracy mean to you enemies of democracy? You are afraid of the trees and the stones and the ground and the sky because these speak Arabic and you are afraid of our children and our grandchildren more than you are afraid of our men. We are proud of that. What is the civilized picture you are trying to draw? In the minds of our children you occupying killers we tell you once and a thousand times there will be no replacement for the return despite the difficulties and the encumberances. We shall return. Palestine is my country. My country, my country, and my country and to her my heart belongs.” AIFD Comment: This piece speaks for itself in its tone and offense. Briefly, is the statement that Israelis fear children and grandchildren more than Palestinian men a glorification of suicide bombing and the use of children in terrorist operations? Note the complete lack of moderation and the repeated call for a right to return which basically is a euphemism for the destruction of the state of Israel. ——————————————————————————– This report and translation is provided as a service to our community.
