In many religions , the cow is a symbol of wealth, strength, abundance, selfless giving and a full Earthly life
No doubt that Israel and the allies of Israel were taken by surprise by two major events that changed the course of history: one of them being the victory of Hizbullah over the Israelis in year 2000 and 2006, and the other the rallying of Arab masses around this victorious Resistance .. In order to counteract these two major historical events and keep away the Arab masses from embracing and identifying with this victory that was unprecedented, the world order created two alternatives that will not only keep the Arab masses busy and away from partaking in the victories of the Resistance but will also set them against this same Resistance .
One of these alternatives – and since Palestine was directly meant by the Resistance’s victories – consisted in removing the Palestinian cause from the core of the Arab/Israeli struggle to link it to international activism in terms of NGOs- like BDS and Electronic Intifada and so on- whereby the globalization of the cause will replace the armed struggle of the local Resistance instead of forming an extension and a universal support to this Resistance .
These NGOs -that are mostly funded by dubious foreign institutes like Soros’ institutes or by foreign governments like the EU –have hijacked the Palestinian Cause and have- for this reason- hired and recruited local people to carry on various activities planned and organized outside Palestine and sometimes coordinated with Israel. These series of activities- taking place abroad or in occupied Palestine- insist on their non violent character while claiming to be a continuation of the original popular Intifada .
This kind of International activism – which is not an Intifada because it does not confront the Israelis in any way- is located mainly in the West Bank , in Ramallah , and around Jerusalem and has created a local army of activists that are on the payroll of the several foreign organizations and therefore carry on the agendas of such organizations. They operate by dividing the one cause into a multitude of separate causes, like the wall of segregation or the Palestinian prisoners or the building of settlements etc…rallying and organizing around each separate cause –and in coordination with Israeli NGOs – an activity that will prove most of the time ineffective and not worth the trouble .
No need to say that these pro Palestinian NGOs are the precursors of what we call the Arab Spring which overtook- one by one- a number of Arab countries and overthrew governments and toppled rulers by the help of local agents active on the ground . Delivering the Palestinian Cause to affiliated NGOs has thus succeeded in isolating the successful armed Resistance of Hizbullah that liberated the land and defeated Israel and kept the cause alive and rallied the Arab masses around the common Arab cause .
In order to further this isolation the world order created another alternative that will complement the globalization, and this is the sectarian alignment of the Arab and Muslim world that will replace Arabism and Islam and will divide the nation and the Umma along the sectarian line.
Like globalization, this sectarian alignment has hijacked the Palestinian cause and removed it from its Arab and Muslim belonging and alienated it from the victories and achievements of the successful armed Resistance of Hizbullah that were labeled as Shi’as, to deliver it to Gulf corrupt sectarian Regimes and to the NATO Islam of Turkey .
And while globalization- through NGOs- took Ramallah and the West Bank as a platform , sectarianism took Gaza as a platform and rallied around Gaza the international solidarity movement of breaking the siege of which Turkey became the star by sacrificing nine of its citizens to the Palestinian cause. The boat activity around Gaza was also a precursor of the Arab Spring and a factor in the promotion of sectarian compromising Islam by way of introducing Turkey as a major player in the sectarian mobilization of the nation and by mobilizing boat activists to join the armed opposition in Libya and later in Syria .
This is how the promotion of Sunni compromising Islam caused the armed Resistance of HAMAS to separate itself from the axis of the armed Resistance of Iran, Syria and Hizbullah and join the Arab Gulf countries and Turkey and later to rally against Syria and send fighters to join the armed opposition against the Syrian army. This is how globalization met sectarianism to liquidate the Palestinian cause and to sacrifice the cow of the Palestinian Cause at the alter of the world order and its derivatives .
