Palestine Comes Closer

irhal, irhal, ya 'ameel, ba'at bilaadak lisraa'eel (anti-Mubarak slogan: Get out, get out, agent/ traitor, you sold your country to Israel)

Reflections of a gloating Angry Arab:

"You can only gloat now about the fortunes - sorry, misfortunes - of the terrorist state of Israel. What can you say about a state that has based its entire strategic posture on the preservation of dictatorial regimes all around it? Do you understand why I have always been confident that Israel's days are numbered? This is a historic necessity that can be analyzed in historical materialist terms. Do you now understand why Netanyahu has ordered his officials to be silent about Egypt? Their panic equals that of the Mubarak family.

"I really doubt there is one Israeli official left in the Israeli espionage embassy in Cairo. I really doubt that now. Do you think that if the Egyptian people were free to choose their representatives, they would impose a siege on Gaza? That they'd invite Netanyahu for Ramadan iftar? Just look at the Iraqi government, which is a puppet government jointly controlled by a kooky Ayatollah (Sistani, the cleric of occupation) and the US occupation. Only one - ONE - elected (in a puppet election) guy, Mithal Allusi, dared to speak for peace with Israel. And how popular was that, even with Israeli and American money allegedly showered on him. Do you know how many assassination attempts he has survived over the years? Two of his sons were assassinated.

"You'd be surprised if you thought my categorical rejection of Israel isn't shared by the Arab people. I met a young Saudi couple on their honeymoon in Lebanon last summer. Do you know what their first destination was? Not the regular tourist sites. They donned kuffiyehs and went to the Resistance Museum in Mlita. Comrade Amer wrote to me yesterday that he never felt Palestine closer. I cannot disagree. The picture will only get bleaker for Israel and for Israelis. This has been the doing of a century of terrorism against Arabs. When I went on a speaking tour to US-run Pakistan 4 years ago, the Pakistanis told me that the US congress had pressured General Musharraf (or Busharraf as Pakistanis liked to call him) to recognise Israel, and he just couldn't because he knew how explosive that'd be among the Pakistani public.

"The US will continue to pay the price for its decades-long, wholehearted embrace of Israeli occupation and terrorist interests above all else. And all for the state of Israel. The US has alienated millions and millions of Arabs over its pro-Israel policies (and of course over its embrace of Middle East dictatorships, part and parcel of its support for Israel). That was what US Secretary of Defense, James Forrestal, warned against back in 1948 when Truman was considering recognizing Israel. This is not to say the US hasn't imperialist interests of its own: of course it has. There is oil, but the Zionist lobby in Washington DC has really put all policy considerations under the headline of support for Israel. In the long term, Israel will also prove to be a big boost for anti-Semitism around the world, especially when Israel goes under. And for that you may also blame the Zionist state of Israel and its decades of terrorism against Arabs." (, 29/1/11)

what the egyptrian revolution has exposed: that israel loves dictators:

israel, likes to call itself the only democracy in a sea of arab dictatorships...well now we have this 'democracy' actually callling for the western powers to SUPPORT one of those arab dictatorships!
one to remember next time a zionist makes his shrill claims


'Israel called on the United States and a number of European countries over the weekend to curb their criticism of President Hosni Mubarak to preserve stability in the region.
Jerusalem seeks to convince its allies that it is in the West's interest to maintain the stability of the Egyptian regime. The diplomatic measures came after statements in Western capitals implying that the United States and European Union supported Mubarak's

Ah, the unbearable cognitive dissonance of being a Zionist.
