The Palestinian's Historic Achievement



I suspect that the Palestinians are the first people in the history of mankind to kill each other while under occupation. Has this ever happened before?

113 Palestinians killed by other Palestinians in just a few days.

How can this happen? This is what you get when you have crazy Islamists who pretend that they want to save their people, but in reality they want power.

But is power in Gaza worth killing for in the name of god or in any other name? Who wants to be the Palestinian prime minister and be in charge of this fucking mess?

Hamas stands for "Islamic resistance movement". It is not clear to me now what it is exactly they are resisting.

I put that picture of Abdel Fattah El Osary because he is one of my favourite comedians. He was a very cool dude and if you disagree with this I will delete your comment :) If he was alive today, I wonder what his reaction would be to the events in Gaza. I am sure he would have come up with a great line.

I believe that fanatical and political Islam will fuck up whatever good things we still have left.

In our radicalized Arab societies today even Abdel Fattah Osary is under attack. remeber his classic pick up line that he used to say whenever he saw a beautiful lady:

"يا أرض احفظي ما عليكي"

Meaning something like: May the ground that you are walking on protect you.

Well apparently, as I recently found out, this pick up line is haram. Why? Because only god protects people...

سبحان الله

  • The Greek had a civil war during the Nazi occupation!!!. The Finns had a bloody civil war after 1st world war, 40,000 killed in 6 months, and the Irish had a civil war right after they got independence from UK. More Irish were killed in the civil war than in the liberation war!!! And finally the bloodiest civil war of all times is the Spanish civil war with sieges and mass executions abound on both sides, around 900,000 lives were lost in 3 years. See, even the Palestinians are angles compared to their European neighbors
    Check wikipedia for the details of these conflicts, once you do you will not be bewildered at what is happening in Iraq and Palestine. You will be wondering how come that the superpowers did not anticipate and prevent this, given their supposedly intelligent and well informed policy makers.

  • Hmmm... anonymous, the only example you gave of civil war under occupation was the Greek case, but this war started a few months before the end of the Nazi occupation and it was between the communists and the western backed nationalists, i.e. cold war stuff where people are fighting for principles they believe in, but in the Palestinian case it's the crazy Islamists of Hamas against the corrupt Fatah boys. Both are motivated by power while hypocritically claiming to serve the Palestinian cause. It is very convenient for us to blame the superpowers for everything that goes wrong, but maybe we need to take a look at ourselves?

  • when i said anticipate and prevent i meant the situation in Iraq because clearly the US bears responsibility for all what happens in Iraq as an occupier. It is not me that says so but the US tribunals in Nuremberg who established the principle that the occupying power is responsible for the security and subsistence of the people under occupation. This concept is now enshrined in international law. what went wrong in Palestine is that the corrupt Fatah could not bear the idea that the money flowing from the west will not fill their inflated accounts anymore and started to destabilize Hamas government by criminal actions to which Hamas responded in a brutal uncompromising way. The west bears part, of course not all, of the responsibility for this since the corrupt Fatah has thrived for more than a decade on the European and American tax payer money.

  • The US should bear some responsibility for what's happening in Iraq but not all. The problem in Iraq, Gaza, Egypt Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, and almost every Arab country I can think of is that power is fought over by the corrupt and criminal governments vs the crazy fanatical Islamists who also have a corrupt interest in power. Why is it that we do not have any genuine and honest form of political activism? Why is it that the Arab people are the last thing on the minds of corrupt politicians, and the blood thirsty jihadists. Does this reflect a complete breakdown in our sense of community? Is our whole societies corrupt and dysfunctional? Or is it just my twisted mind?
