Palestijnse opruiing in het licht van de familiemoord in Itamar

 
Er wordt vanuit de anti-Israel hoek (o.a. op Joop.nl) geklaagd dat Israel ten onrechte de Palestijnen beschuldigt (en 'collectief straft' met de aankondiging over nieuwe woningbouw in de nederzettingen), terwijl de moord in Itamar door een Thaise gastarbeider gepleegd zou (kunnen) zijn.
 
Hoe de aankondiging precies gebracht is weet ik niet, maar de media suggereerden vaak een direct oorzakelijk verband; met de timing wilde het kabinet wellicht inderdaad een signaal afgeven, maar natuurlijk is zo'n besluit op zich gebaseerd op andere afwegingen en over langere termijn voorbereid.
 
Hoe sterk de aanwijzingen zijn dat er Palestijnen achter de moord zitten, weet ik ook niet precies. Er zullen zeker sporen op de plaats van het misdrijf zijn gevonden van de dader(s). Soortgelijke aanslagen/moorden zijn in elk geval herhaaldelijk door Palestijnen gepleegd op bewoners van de nederzettingen, en bij mijn weten nog nooit door oost-Aziatische gastarbeiders, dus vreemd is het zeker niet dat men de daders onder Palestijnen zoekt.
 
Dat terroristen in Palestijnse media en moskeeën worden geëerd en verheerlijkt is een feit, dat echter door de anti-Israel aktivisten meestal wordt doodgezwegen of gebagatelliseerd. Daarom hieronder maar nog eens een paar voorbeelden van de opruiing en antisemitische propaganda.
 
Anja Meulenbelt & co klaagden tevens dat er werd bericht dat in de Gazastrook lollies werden uitgedeeld aan kinderen om de vreselijke moord te vieren. Dat zou slechts gemeld zijn in één bron: een journalist van het Israelische Ynet News, en die kun je natuurlijk niet vertrouwen. Men stelt meer vertrouwen in het Palestijnse Ma'an News, dat met het bericht over een Thaise verdachte kwam. Dat de gemiddelde Israelische journalist veel professioneler en onafhankelijker bericht dan Ma'an, lijkt mij geen onderwerp van discussie. Overigens zijn mij geen foto's bekend van de lollies en de kinderen, maar zag ik wel degelijk foto's van zoete hapjes die aan volwassenen in Rafah werden uitgedeeld, en dat was niet in het kader van de anti-honger campagne van Hamas. Ook hier geldt verder dat bij eerdere terreuraanslagen wel degelijk snoep werd uitgedeeld, dus onwaarschijnlijk lijkt het mij zeker niet.

While the leaders of the PA mouthed their meaningless words of condemnation for the Itamar massacre of the Fogel family, here is is their real reaction:
Palestinians have named a town square after a female terrorist who killed 37 Israelis in 1978.

The official dedication of the Dalal Mughrabi square near Ramallah took place just two days after a Palestinian terrorist group claimed responsibility for the brutal murder of five Israelis from the same family, three of whom were children.

Mughrabi is celebrated by some Palestinians for her role in a bus hijacking on the road between Tel Aviv and Haifa. Thirteen children were among those killed in that attack.

Although there were no government officials in attendance at the ceremony, members of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas' Fatah party were present.

Also this weekend a sports contest at a Fatah-run youth centre in the West Bank was named in honour of the first female Palestinian suicide bomber, Wafa Idris.

Idris murdered an 81-year-old man when she blew herself up outside a busy shoe shop in Jerusalem nine years ago. The attack also left 150 people injured.

PA TV talk show:

Quran says Jews worry over money;

Israel's destruction is  

"hope of all Palestinians"

http://palwatch.org/main.aspx?fi=157&doc_id=4769 

 

by Itamar Marcus and Barbara Crook


A talk show on official Palestinian Authority television recently promoted the classic Antisemitic stereotype of Jews being overly concerned with "accumulating money." The guest attempted to validate his defamation by claiming that it is corroborated in the Quran.

In addition, the guest's call for the destruction of Israel, in his words, "to liberate the entire stolen Palestinian homeland," met with approval by the official PA TV host: "I join my voice to yours; of course, unity and liberation are the hope of all Palestinians." PMW has documented the ongoing denial of Israel's right to exist by the PA.

The program Personal Encounter featured an interview with Abd Al-Rahman Abu Al-Qassam, a Palestinian actor living in Syria. He described the PLO's discovery that "the pen and the stage" can be effective weapons, and says his enemies are the Zionists "who were taken by World Zionism, and were transformed from the old Jew into the Zionist Jew, full of fascism." [PA TV, Jan. 23, 2011, rebroadcast Feb. 27, 2011]

He conceded that early Palestinian theatrical portrayals of the Jews as bent-nosed, weak and cowardly were not accurate, but insisted that the other early stereotype connecting Jews with money was indeed true:

"Of course, he [the Jew] is interested in accumulating money - the Jews throughout history, and in the religions, and the Quran tells us about the Jews and their worry over money."


His Antisemitic statements were not challenged by the PA TV host. PA TV is controlled by the office of PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas.

[The PA TV host asks about "theater as weapon."]

Abd Al-Rahman Abu Al-Qassam, actor: "The PLO... discovered that theater has a pioneering role, and just as we fight on the battlefields with guns, so we should fight using the pen and the stage..."

 

PA TV host: "What is your opinion of people who draw a distinction, who say that a Jew is not [like] the Israeli?"

 

Al-Qassam: "The Neturei Karta [an extremist sect of religious Jews who deny Israel's right to exist until the Messiah comes]. . . Those people are not my enemies. My enemies are the other Jews, the Zionists, who were taken by World Zionism, and were transformed from the old Jew into the Zionist Jew, full of fascism. . ."

 

Host: "You also said, at the same time, that there must be a 'new reading' of the Zionist enemy, since we generally describe him as a weak person... But there are people who say the opposite: Our problem with the Israelis is that we empower them and amplify their power to mythological proportions."

 

Al-Qassam: ""30 or 40 years ago, we presented the Jew in the theater as someone with a bent nose who lends with interest and who understands nothing except money matters, and is cowardly, ugly, interested only in collecting money and controlling the people around him. However, this is not accurate or correct: The Jew doesn't have a bent nose, and isn't cowardly, and is not interested only in accumulating money.

Of course, he is interested in accumulating money - the Jews throughout history, and in the religions, and the Quran tells us about the Jews and their worry over money. But that's not everything. Everything, for these people, means keeping what they've managed to attain, in other words, occupation of territory, of a homeland, of history, of geography...

My brothers... in Gaza and in the West Bank... I want to urge you strongly to unite ... this enemy [Israel] is not an easy enemy, and if we want to defeat this difficult enemy, we have to be united so that we can strengthen our abilities... to liberate the entire stolen Palestinian homeland [i.e., all of Israel]. May Allah bless you."

 

Host: "Thank you very much... I join my voice to yours; of course, unity and liberation are the hope of all Palestinians."
