أسطول الحرية والأسبوع الزفت !

June 3, 2010

مش عارفه ليش اجا على بالي اكتب بالعربي مع اني ما بعرف اكتب منيح بس المهم يكون مفهوم انشالله. الأسبوع هاد كان سيئ ولسة شكلو في كمان. هو سبب واحد:

1 : أسطول الحرية إلي كان رايح على غزة ومعو أدوية ومواد بني وإلى أخيره.. طبعاً الناس والدنيا قامت على إسرائيل وأنا طبعاً لأنو أنا من غزة وإلي عملتو إسرائيل جريمة بحق ناس محرومين وناس مسالمين. ايش ذنبهم هدول إلي ماتو؟ والله مني عرفة ماهي إسرائيل صارت تعمل إلي بدها إياه واحنا نروح مظاهرات. مش هاد إلي بصير؟

طبعاً أنا لأن عايشة ببلد أجنبية، الجالية العربية إلي هان قرر إنو ننزل مظاهرة ومحسوبتكم أخدت هالسيارة وراحت طير على القنصلية السرائيلية. واحنا هناك كان في شرطة واقفين يحمو البناية إلي فيها القنصلية. والناس بتهتف وبتغني وبطبل وأنا معاهم. ولا فجأة بشوفلك الناس صارت تجري و أنا صرت أجري وبعد دقيقتين تقريباً(ويا ريتني ما وقفت) وقفت أطلع وراي ولا لقيت شرطي بجري وراي و أنا بدي أمسك نفسي قام هو مسكني و أنا بحاول أهرب ولا هو ضربني بوكس ببطني (طلع روحي) المهم الموضوع إنتهى وقت ما اجا المحامي وطالعني.

هاد السبب ليش الأسبوع كان جد زفت وسيئ انشالله الله لا يعيدها لأنو جاد مأساه وما كنت متوقعة الشرطة إلي هان تعمل هيك أنا ايش حكيت غير “Free Free Palesine!”

Commemorating the Catastrophe.

May 19, 2010

Sixty-two years ago we owned the Holy Land and lived in peace before their arrival. To this very day I still carry the key to our house just like many Palestinians. The key to our home we were brutally forced to leave and never go back to it. 1948, was the year when the change began and unfortunately it wasn’t for our benefit. On that year, we were slaughtered and killed in cold blood. Driven away from our own houses and our land we once owned.

Hundreds of villages had not only been depopulated but obliterated, houses blown up or bulldozed. Isn’t this year, a year of displacement and dispossession, worthy of commemoration? I think it is.

Al Nakba (The Catastrophe) has  become a collective memory of two          contrasting periods in our Palestinian  history. It changed our lives at an  individual level and a national level.  After 1948, we were treated as refugees  and known to deserve the support of  international aid agencies. The ethnic cleansing of Palestinians did not stop in  1948. After Israel has established itself  on our dear Land, they continued to  dispose Palestinians and transfer them  during the ‘50s. In addition, the Israeli  Zionist authorities have declared that  the Palestinian villages are closed  military zones to prevent the Palestinians from returning as well as, razing more villages and transforming them into Jewish settlements, national parks, forests and even parking lots. The Jewish National Fund also planted depopulated villages to conceal Palestinian existence. They wanted to remove any non-Jewish sings and appearance in Palestine to mistakenly claim that this is their Land and that was their right. Even the names of villages and towns were changed to make them look like a “Jewish village”. This is madness. From that moment, the original inhabitants of Palestine lost everything related to their identity and they lived as refugees in neighboring countries. This tragic day is commemorated by the Palestinians as a catastrophe and by the Israelis as a celebration of its independence and its establishment.  It is your duty as a human being to remind the world of this event and to inform the public of Israel’s crimes against the Palestinians.

What has kept us Palestinians alive since Al Nakba is the dream of returning to our land. It’s our survival and determination that we wish to celebrate one day. Generations after generations have been raised to keep the hope within and to remember Palestine and to pass on the message to the next generation with the will to resist and remember our usurped land.

One day we’ll return to our home and land and live peacefully once again.
Al Nakba is the continuing saga of my people up to today. Al Nakba illustrates the condition where the credo of might is right leads to the corruption of the soul of those who are guilty of perpetuating the dispossession of Palestinians from their rightful homeland.

    Qana Massacre • April 18.1996-2010

    April 9, 2010

     

    Qana Massacre 

    18 April 1996, The “ethnic cleansing” operations carried out by the Zionist terrorist army have encompassed not only Palestinian civilians, but Lebanese civilians in south Lebanon as well.
    In an attempt to break the power of the Lebanese Hizbollah organization, Zionist forces undertook a military operation against south Lebanon. This operation was likewise based upon the Zionist mentality, supportive as it is of blood-letting and terrorism and based upon the belief that “exercising pressure against Lebanese citizens . . . Will lead in practical terms to comprehensive, overall pressure on account of which the Hizbollah organization will be obliged to adhere to a ceasefire.”59 Given this reasoning, the Zionist forces bombed the shelter which was providing refuge to approximately five hundred Lebanese, most of whom were children, elderly and women who had been forced out of their homes by Israeli raids on their villages, andwho had been unable to get to Beirut. This bombing led to the deaths of 109 Lebanese civilians and seriously wounded 116 others. During the attack, Israeli forces used between 5 and 6 advanced bombs designed to explode above their target in order to cause the largest possible number of casualties. Moreover,international investigations confirmed that the Israeli forces had deliberately targeted  the shelter.60      

                                                                

    Ali, one of those wounded in the attack, says, “I fled in the morning with two friends and went for refuge to the emergency forces in Qana. I had my wife and my four children with me. They led us into a shelter where there were about fifty people. Then suddenly the sound of bombing rang out. A first shell, then a second fell near the shelter, and as we were trying to get out, another shell hit the shelter directly. I don’t know what happened to my wife and children.”61 Fadi Jabir weeps as he talks about things he saw after the Israeli bombs fell on those who had left their homes to come to the base for the UN Fayjiya peace-keeping forces. He says, “I heard people shouting ‘Allahu akbar!’, and a woman fell down unconscious. I reached out to get an idea what had happened to her, and her brain fell into my hand.”62 As for Sa’d AllahBalhas, who was wounded by a piece of shrapnel in the Zionist massacre, he says, “In one second I lost everything: my children, 14 of my grandchildren, and my wife. I don’t want to live anymore. Tell the doctors to let me die.”63

    Deir Yassin – April 9th. 1948-2010

    April 8, 2010

    Early in the morning of April 9, 1948, commandos of the Irgun (headed by Menachem Begin) and the Stern Gang attacked Deir Yassin, a village with about 750 Palestinian residents. The village lay outside of the area to be assigned by the United Nations to the Jewish State; it had a peaceful reputation. But it was located on high ground in the corridor between Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. Deir Yassin was slated for occupation under Plan Dalet and the mainstream Jewish defense force, the Haganah, authorized the irregular terrorist forces of the Irgun and the Stern Gang to perform the takeover.

    In all over 100 men, women, and children were systematically murdered. Fifty-three orphaned children were literally dumped along the wall of the Old City, where they were found by Miss Hind Husseini and brought behind the American Colony Hotel to her home, which was to become the Dar El-Tifl El-Arabi orphanage.

    Part of the struggle for self-determination by Palestinians has been to tell the truth about Palestinians as victims of Zionism. For too long their history has been denied, and this denial has only served to further oppress and deliberately dehumanize Palestinians in Israel, inside the occupied territories, and outside in their diaspora.

    Some progress has been made. Westerners now realize that Palestinians, as a people, do exist. And they have come to acknowledge that during the creation of the state of Israel, thousands of Palestinians were killed and over 700,000 were driven or frightened from their homes and lands on which they had lived for centuries.

    غزة .. كوكتيل دم ومزايدات

    April 5, 2010

    و غزة هنا .. ليست الشريط الجغرافي على المتوسط جنوب فلسطين .. و إنما هي بغداد أول أمس وبيروت الأمس … هي محرقة العامرية والضاحية الجنوبية و مخيم جنين….

    هي الدم الفلسطيني المسفوك بأيد إسرائيلية و عربية و فلسطينية … الإسرائيليون لم يفاجئونا بشيء ،فالقسوة و الإجرام و القتل العشوائي و الذبح الجماعي لشعبنا ..جزء من كيان عنصري يرى حياته في موت الاخر..

    و العرب لم يفاجئونا منذ انطلقت الطائرات الأمريكية من قاعدة العديد في قطر، أو منذ تحركت قواتهم لمحاربة العراق إلى جانب اميركا …

    لم يفاجئونا أيضا حين ساهموا في حصار وتجويع أطفال العراق … و لكن يفاجئنا من صفق للإنقسام الفلسطيني ، حتى جعلنا نظن عبر فضائياته وسياساته أن فلسطين هي غزة الجغرافيا ويرى فيها دولة كبرى لأن سكانها ربما أضعاف رعاياه المتخمين….

    نعم .. غزة هي فلسطين، وإن أي شبر من التراب الفلسطيني هو فلسطين في عطائه وتضحياته … ولكنه لن يكون … كل فلسطين … حتى لو شاء ذلك الأخوان…. غزة للشعب و ليست لتنظيم سياسي و إن أعلن الخلافة الإسلامية و حصل على بعض الفتاوى الأموية أو القرمطية …
    إن الذي يدعو لمواجهة غير متكافئة مع الإسرائيليين هو ذاته الذي ينتظر التوازن الإستراتيجي مع إسرائيل منذ أن حفروا البحر ….و هو من قال أن مهاجمة حزب الله خط أحمر …. وإستمر حزب الله يقاتل و ليس وراءه غير الله، وكذب الكذابون ..
    و أخيرا جمدت المفاوضات غير المباشرة إحتجاجا على عدم البدء بمفاوضات مباشرة…وهم يدعون أهل غزة لرفض التهدئة ريثما يحصلون على مفاوضات مباشرة مع اسرائيل ….

    و إن من يرسل مساعداته من الخليج هو ذاته الذي طرد أبناء غزة الفلسطينية من دوله وجوعهم بعد حرب الكويت، و هو الذي لا يزال يغلق باب العمل أمامهم ليعلن نفسه مغيثا ، ببعض الطرود الغذائية المصادق عليها من المكتب التجاري الاسرائيلي في عواصمهم …فسبحان الله عدد كلمات وحلقات برنامج الشريعة والحياة….
    إن الذين تواطأوا على غزة.. و الذي يقصفها و يحرقها هو من ساند.. إنقسامها مالا و إعلاما، و لو كان لديه جيش لأرسله لتعزيز الإنقسام.. و لكنه و الحمدلله لا يمتلك إلا كتيبة من الإستجداء لأمريكا لتمنحه البقاء على الكرسي مقابل منحها وطنا… بشعبه و مقدراته ..

    إن الذي يقتل غزة هو من قتل.. أفغانستان عندما تضخمت أحلامه أكبر من حجمه، فاعتقد بأنه معادلة دولية و إقليمية تكتمل عند اللعب بالدم الفلسطيني … فهو على كل حال مسفوح …

    غزة الآن كوكتيل … من دم مظلوم … و تواطؤ مذموم و مزايدات محمومة … فهي سوق لمن أراد إثبات حسن النية لإسرائيل و إمريكا … و هي شاشة كبيرة لمن أراد أن يظهر نجمًا و قائدًا و أسدًا و ثائرًا ….
    تواطؤوا تاريخيا على ذبح الشعب.. و ساهموا في حصاره و منعوه من العمل في بلادهم … فاحذريهم يا غزة إنهم يؤمنون بمقولة “ان الحرب تحيك نسيج الدول” و هم يريدونك دولة…فلا تغريك أصوات الطبول القارعة… بالدعم و المدد فإنهم طبول جوفاء ……. و عودي يا غزة لمرفأك الفلسطيني ..و إن متنا جميعا ،فالموت مع جماعتك رحمة…و أعذريني يا غزة لانني لم أتكلم عن المقاومة و الممانعة و إبادة اسرائيل…فمن كثرة الكذابين، لم يعد للقول طعم.
    و إن كان لابد من القول …. فقد تكلم الدم على الارض و هو الشهادة و أبلغ الكلام، و ليبتلع البحر من يقولوا ولا يفعلوا…

    Jenin2002-2010

    April 3, 2010

    In April, 2002 that tragedy of the Thirties has been repeated but this time on the hand of the Israeli army in a way more brutal and inhuman. Jenin like the other Palestinian cities occupied in 1967 had witnessed all kinds of the Israeli inhuman occupational procedures and practiced all kinds of resistance to repulse that occupation. When the Palestinian National Authority was established after Oslo agreement, Jenin looked forward a better future within a Palestinian independent state. But because of the Israeli procrastinations Palestinians revolted declaring the second Intifada. Jenin has been a fortress of steadiness in front of the Israeli aggressions. Israel described it as the fort of the Palestinian terrorism, thus relentless attacks were committed against it using all the kinds of the strategic weapons.

    Jenin today

    Jenin lies on an area of 18,799 square KM, 3,973 square KM are inhabited. According to the census of 1997 it contained 3627 buildings, included 5972 residential unities. In 2001 the population reached the number of 30, 637.

    Most of the necessary services are available, that it contains 18 schools for males and females, a library, three gyms, a cultural club, ten humanitarian societies, eleven mosques, a church and four shrines.

    Concerning health care, it includes two hospitals, 66 clinics, a fire station, police and other government’s bureaus.

    On the land of Jenin, Israel established two illegitimate settlements: Kadeem which was established in 1982 and Janim established in 1983.

    Jenin Refugee Camp

    In 1953 after the catastrophe of 1948 (Al- Nakba) the UNRWA established the camp on a land of 372 acres (now it extends to about 1000 acres). Jenin Refugee Camp contains those who are originally from Haifa. In 2001, the population estimated to 10, 529, it is expected to increase to 11,536 by 2002.

    People in the refugee camp practice different kinds of economic activities that there are 161 private sector establishments contain transformational industries, small workshops, restaurants and shops. The educational services are available so that there are 5 schools for both males and females as well as some clinics can be found.

    A 23-year-old girl Hanan describes what happened in the first three days of the Israeli attack on Jenin saying: “we had nothing to eat; my sister fainted because of hunger. We almost suffocated of the smokes released from an adjacent burnt house. Sometimes, some fighters sheltered in our place. We were too many so that we finally decided to leave no matter what. Raising white banners with a bunch of women we moved on through the camp. We had to stop when an Israeli sniper opened fire at us, we raised our hands shouting that we were civilians. She said that the Israeli soldiers stopped men and let women go. Halla, Hanan’s sister, said that it was difficult to recognize the camp of Jenin after all this devastation.

    After the InvasionVandalizing the Homes

    After killing, the Israeli forces called “the snipers” started to burst into houses and destroy their contents. Hassan Abu Na’she’s house was exposed to destruction by the Israeli soldiers who occupied the second floor. Abu Na’she said that his house was a shelter for people who ran from the massacre. Fatheya Abu Na’she said that the Israeli bulldozers demolished a wall of the house rooms. It was only God’s will that saved about 70 people inside the house from death after bulldozing the wall, Fatheya said.

    Even the pictures were not left alone. The Israeli soldiers burnt pictures, pictures and children’s toys. They destroyed kitchen contents, blew doors up, killed cattle, vandalized drainage and electricity net and used many electrical sets to shut the doors where their snipers were. Even my sons’ apartments were completely destroyed, Fatheya Abu Na’she said.

    Secretary of the Red Cross, individuals from the Red Crescent and I entered the refugee camp of Jenin with the rescue equipment. The Israeli army allowed only a truck and small vehicle to be taken into the camp for rescue. I saw the destruction, I saw the execution of everything alive, I saw the execution of houses, bodies of the dead under the debris, a 60-year-old woman eliminated by a shot in the forehead, four bodies belonged to four old men. The Israeli commander told us that it was only an execution. We took out seven stinking bodies, and when the Israeli army refused to let us to enter the equipment. Since we were not able to do our jobs we agreed with the Red Cross to call for an international committee for salvation”.

    Ahmed Farraj (70) described his experience by saying that he and his family had to seek a shelter in the bed room considering it safer than the other ones. After three days I asked them to leave the house, the only thing I was thinking of was saving them, he said. He stayed at home while his wife and daughters empty-handedly left the house for some relatives outside Jenin camp. I waited alone for 24 hours, but eventually I had to leave the house for a safer place when I saw the Israeli military bulldozers heading towards me, he added. Some people told him that his son was killed, some one saw his body, while his other son appeared few days later. I will ask people if they saw her (his wife) and my daughters…I am a dead man, but I still have part of my family to look after, sadly said. Answering a question whether he is going to rebuild his house he said: how do you want me to rebuild it? I lost all of what I had, I don’t have any money for that. While talking to Ahmed Farraj another old man slowly approached. He was also alone, doesn’t know any thing about his family who left the house which was demolished by the Israeli army. Israeli children go to schools, play and swim…but this is our sea (pointing to the debris), all cases have solution except ours, the old man indignantly said. ( Al-Quds Newspaper 22nd. April.2002)

    This is one of the many massacres that has been committed against our people in Palestine for resisting . May they rest in peace.
