Palestinian Rights Are Not Negotiable

While many are wrapping themselves in the Palestinian rights flag, most of them represent in fact different agendas they are pursuing, which have one thing in common: they are anti-Islamic.

Whom can we, Palestinians, trust? We see our brothers and sisters in Syria being butchered by a murderous tyrant who orders his army of thugs to rape women, kill children, and massacre civilians.

Israel and NATO may or may not truly wish to see the tyrant go but that should not blind us to the Truth: we should accept support from whomever helps the freedom fighters liberate Syria and bring back true Islam to its people.

I am a Palestinian activist and a respected writer, as can be seen here, and here, and here (links pending), who has suffered in Israeli jails for my activities, but I say this:

I would rather live under Israeli occupation than under the power of Hezbollah and its anti-Islam, false Islam deviationists, sectarian rapists and murderers who call themselves shias.

Those who keep talking about “Israel” and “jews” — whether they are deluded muslims, anti-semites or self-obsessed jews, are trying to divert our attention from the real danger: the war on Islam going on in the world, waged by deviationists.

Palestinians are muslims first, sunnis — and therefore true muslims — and last. “Palestine” denotes just a meaningless geographical division of Islam.

‘*               *               *               *               *               *

“Imitation is the most sincere form of flattery” comes with lots of exceptions: persiflage, satire, irony, sarcasm, all turn imitation on its head.

The above piece is an exercise in “khalidism” that summarizes some of the main characteristics of a piece of writing whose goal is to promote the Israel-NATO agenda using sectarian hatred as a method. The main features are:

1. A deceiving title: the subject is most definitely not Palestinian rights, yet the piece might register in many places as “pro-Palestinian.”

2. False information about the nature of the bloodshed in Syria and its perpetrators, using the handy model of the propaganda disseminated on Libya.

3. Support for NATO’s aggression on Syria under the guise of humanitarian concern.

4. Sectarian hate used to create a poisoned split between sunnis and shias.

5. Deflection of criticism of Israel.

6. Last, and most important, a covert but unmistakable denial of Palestinian rights, deceptively called for in the title.

The bullet points are easy enough to master even for a barely articulate writer.

Add to the mix a vitriolic, invective-filled attack on any critics, masquerading as righteous indignation.

Above all, remember this, “respected Palestinian activists”:  Nothing about Palestine!

    Absolutely brilliant analysis, Ariadna! You perfectly outline just what it is that is so repugnant about such faux activist articles and how to spot them for the unwary or under-exposed to Khalid and his ilk.
    Great imitation, although ‘tyrant’ was a bit weak, I almost didn’t recognise it as K without the invectives and overt sectarian insults in it.

      Thank you, Somoe, but after I applied word cloud to it I was disappointed: “Syria,” “shia” and “tyrant” are all prominent but “Palestinian” came in the first place, which is wrong… maybe I should have included only the “article” and not my note at the end.

    Ariadna I had no idea you witnessed the usurping zionist regime’s prison cells. Have you done any articles on it?

    Palestinians are Christian as well and all suffer from this occupation.

      I am not sure I understand you, Blake. It is a fact that I have had too much sun the past few days and I am slower than usual. Could you please explain?

      • Blake August 12, 2012 at 11:05 am #

        No worries was interested in hearing about it if it actually did happen. Thanks.

      Blake, everything that is above the 6 asterisks is a satire in which I imitated what the likes of Khalid write, if you have followed that sluice flowing down the comment section for the past few weeks. I was sort of speaking in his voice.
      Underneath, I tried to analyze what that sectarian, pro-invasion propaganda is made of, that’s all.
      I am a better impersonator than a satirist, I guess.

      Your observation about Christian Palestinians is very perceptive: indeed they do not figure at all in these discourses but then Palestinians themselves figure only as sunnis, not as people of a certain ethnicity, culture and history that sets them apart. That is the effect of sectarianism

    I think Blake didn’t realise that this passage was a ‘khalidism’

    “I am a Palestinian activist and a respected writer, as can be seen here, and here, and here (links pending), who has suffered in Israeli jails for my activities, but I say this:”

      Thanks, Roy.

      I do apologize.

    wonderful encapsulation and deconstruction.

    ditto, delicioius analysis.
