June 3, 2010

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؟

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.

    Quotes of Opinion – Translated to English.

    April 2, 2010

    هويتـنا الوطنيـة تتآكل من الداخـل. أصبح شبابنا وصبايانا مأمركين ومعولمين أكثر مما هم فلسطينيين… وتهمهم آخر صرعات الموضة أكثر مما تهمهم آخر الحلول المقترحة لتصفية القضية الفلسطينية… ويهتمون بأخبار هيفاء وهبي وجنيفر لوبيز أكثر مما يهتمون بشارون وبوش. إنه مخطط مدروس؛ طبخة أمريكية-إسرائيلية تُـطبخ على نار باردة في المطابخ الخلفية للموساد والسي آي إي

    Our national identity is decaying from within. Our young men and women have become Americanized and globalized more the Palestinized… They care about the last fashion hits more than about the last suggested solutions for eliminating the Palestinian issue… and they follow the news about Haifa’ Wahbi and Jennifer Lopez more than the news about Sharon and Bosh. It is a well-thought plan; an American-Israeli dish being cooked on a weak flame on the backside kitchens of the Mossad and the C.I.A.

    (A psychology female student at Birzeit University, 12/5/05)

    “ما يجـري هـنا وفي جميـع أنحـاء العالم يـدل على أن الرؤسـاء والمـلوك وأصحاب القـرار في السـياسة أغبـياء إلى حـد مذهـل، ويـكاد غـباؤهم السـياسي يصـل إلى حـد التخـلف العـقـلي. وأكـثر ما يـدل على غـبائهم هو اسـتهتارهم بذكائـنا ومـقدرتـنا على فـهم ألاعـيبهم واكـتشاف غـبائهم… نحـن الـناس البـسطاء، فنحن مادة السـياسة وموضـوعـها، ومصـيرنا هو الضحـية الأولى والأخـيرة لغـباء القـادة والزعـماء.”

    “What is happening here and in the rest of the world reveals without doubt that the presidents and kings and all decision-makers in politics are astonishingly stupid, and their stupidity may reach the extent of mental retardation. And the strongest indication of their stupidity is their underestimation of our intelligence and ability to understand their games and discover their stupidity… we the simple people, who are the stuff and object of politics, because our destiny is the first and last victim of the stupidity of the leaders and politicians.”

    I vegetable salesman in the bazaar of Arrabeh (commenting on the Road Map negotiations and what followed them), 17.6.2003.

    والله هالوطن صار سوبرماركت كبير، واحنا البضاعة، وكلـه ببيعنا وبشترينا وبربح من ورانا واحنا ما معنا خبر. قالوا لفرعون “يا فرعون شو فرعنك؟” قالهم “ما لقيت حدا يردني.”

    The country has become a big supermarket, and we are the stock, and they all sell us and buy us and make money due to us, and we are getting nothing. Faro was once asked “ why are you a faro?” and he said “because there was no one to stop me.”

    A taxi driver from Am3ari Refugee Camp, 22/1/2004

    “إن تكلـمتَ سـتموُت، وإن لم تتكلم ستموت. فمـن الأفضل إذاً أن تتكلـم وتمـوت.”

    “If you talk you are going to die, and if you do not talk you are going to die. It is therefore better that you talk and die.”

    A Palestinian artist citing the Martyred artist Naji el-Ali, 1.7.03.

    إسرائيل دمّرت بيوتنا ويتّمَت أطفالنا ورمّلَت نساءنا واعتدت على عرض بناتنا. ولكن هناك شيء واحد خسرناه وليس لإسرائيل ذنب فيه… وهو احترامنا لأنفسنا.”

    “Israel destroyed our houses, turned our children to orphans, made our women widows and assaulted the honour of our daughters. But one thing we lost and it was not Israel’s fault… It is our self-respect.”

    A lady from Bethlehem, 18.03.03.

    “بتعرف قصة اللي ضـَوَّع حصانه وراح يدوِّر عليه؟ لما رجع سألوه: شو صار؟ قال لهم: لاقيته. قالوا له: وينـُه؟ قال لهم: لاقيت حـَذوة، بعد بس ثلاث حذوات والحصان.
    وإحنا… معنا المفتاح، بس ناقص بيت إلـُه باب، والباب إلـُه قــُدِح للمفتاح…. ناقصنا بس وطن، وشعب يتوحد، وأمه عربية يكون عندها كرامة وضمير.”

    “Do you know the story of the man who lost his horse and went to look for it? When he came back they asked him: What happened? He said: I found it. They asked: Where is it? He said: I found a horseshoe, and it remains only to find the other three horseshoes and the horse itself.
    The same with us. We have a key, but it remains only to find a house with a door, and a keyhole in the door. We only lack a homeland, a united people, and an Arab nation with dignity and conscience.”

    (A refugee man from Zakariya in Hebron, now living in Ramallah, 37 years old, 13/5/2009.)

    “أنا بنتي عمرها أربع سنين. كانت مبارح عم تشوف الأخبار معي ع التلفزيون. سألتني “ماما، ليش هيك الولاد الصغار عم ينقتلوا بغزة ودمهن عم يسيل؟” قلتلها “لأنه في حرب بغزة والطيارات عم تقصف البيوت.” سألتني “ليش في حرب بغزة؟” قلتلها “لأنهن اليهود فاتوا ع غزة وعم يقتلوا الصغار والكبار.” سألتني “ليش هيك بعملوا اليهود؟” قلتلها “لأنهن اليهود ما بحبوا العرب، والعرب ما بحبوا اليهود.” رجعت سألتني “بس هذاك اليوم لما وْقِـعِـت وأخذتيني ع العيادة، الدكتورة اللي حكـّمتني كانت يهودية، وكانت منيحة كثير معي، وقعدت تلعب معي وتضَحِكني، وجَـبّرَتـلي إيدي المكسورة وصارت إيدي… شوفي ما احلاها.”
    حسيت بوَرطة، وما عرفت كيف بدي جاوبها وأنا عم شوف الأطفال اللي بعمر بنتي عم ينذبحوا بغزة بدم بارد. من ناحية، بنتي معها حق، بس أنا بشتغل مع اليهود، وطول فترة الحرب على غزة بسمعهن كلهن بحكوا قديش مبسوطين من اللي بصير في غزة، وبفتخروا بجيشهن وبعتبروهن أبطال بحاربوا الإرهابيين، وأنا وصاحباتي العرب ممنوع نفتح ثمنا بكلمة أو نجيب سيرة الحرب على لسانـّا، وإذا بيّن علينا إنا مش مبسوطات من كلامهن ببَحروا (ببحلقوا) فينا والكراهية بتنقط من عينيهن. مهما كانوا مْـلاح، بظـَل اليهودي يهودي، والعربي لازم يوكل خرا ويسكت.”

    “I have a four year-old daughter. Yesterday she was watching the news on TV together with me. She asked me “Mom, why do little kids get killed in Gaza, and their blood is allover?” I said “Because there is a war in Gaza, and airplanes are bombing people’s homes.” She asked “Why is there war in Gaza?” I said “Because the Jews invaded Gaza, and they are killing people, old and young.” She asked “Why are the Jews doing this?” I said “Because the Jews don’t like Arabs, and the Arabs don’t like Jews.” Then she said “But the other day when I fell and you took me to the clinic, the doctor who treated me was a Jew, and she was good to me, she played with me and made me laugh, and she treated my broken hand and made it well again… look how nice my hand is?”
    I felt embarrassed and did not know how to answer my little daughter while watching children in her age getting slaughtered in Gaza in cold blood. On the one hand, my daughter is right. But I work with Jews in a Jewish workplace, and throughout the war on Gaza I hear them all telling each other how happy they are for what is happening in Gaza and how proud they are of their soldiers whom they consider as heroes killing Arab terrorists, while I and my Arab friends cannot open our mouths at work, and we cannot say a word about the war in Gaza… And if we show any sign of dissatisfaction with their talk, they stir at us with eyes full of hatred. No matter how good they are as persons, they are Jews, and the Arabs have to eat the shit and keep silent.”

    The beginning of destruction of Al Aqsa on the 16th of March 2010 ? : Rabbi Vilna Gaon Prophecy

    If the 18th-century rabbinic authority the Vilna Gaon was right, on March 16, 2010, construction will begin on the third Temple. His projection states that the auspicious day will coincide with the third completion of the Hurva Synagogue in Jerusalem’s Jewish Quarter.

    The great day is at hand: On March 15, the reconstructed Hurva Synagogue, considered the most important house of prayer in Jerusalem will be rededicated. It was last destroyed in the War of Independence.

    However, during the reconstruction process, the Hurva has become a bone of contention between ultra-Orthodox and other Jerusalemites.

    The conflict is over what kind of institution the Hurva will be. A group of secular and national-religious Jerusalemites say that if the state does not act quickly, the Hurva will become another ultra-Orthodox synagogue, where women and tourists are unwelcome.

    “The government has invested millions in the restoration of the synagogue. It is a place of special value to tourists. The Jewish Quarter has dozens of synagogues and it doesn’t need another one,” said Tehila Nahlon, an activist.

    The debate reflects wider issues of identity facing the Jewish Quarter, which has become increasingly ultra-Orthodox in recent years.

    City councilwoman Rachel Azariya said, “The Hurva must not become just another synagogue, and the Jewish Quarter just another Haredi neighborhood.”

    The Hurva, whose name means “ruin,” was initially built by disciples of Rabbi Judah Hahasid in the early 18th century. It was destroyed shortly thereafter by Muslims demanding the return of loans given to build the synagogue. After it was rebuilt in the mid-19th century, it became the most important synagogue in the country, but it was blown up in 1948 by the Jordan Legion a few days before the fall of the Jewish Quarter in the War of Independence.

    In 2001, after years of debate, the government decided to restore the building.

    The historic building, whose famous dome one more dominates the skyline of the Jewish Quarter, has now been meticulously recreated, including furnishings and wall frescoes.

    MY personal commentary : And if we don’t do something RIGHT NOW they will destroy it !! and by the way , the coward and treacherous arab governments still didn’t make ANY SORT OF REACTION against the joining of our Islamic holy sites to the list of ” jewish heritage ” !!!

    Palestinian Hip-Hop/Rap

    February 20, 2010

    Some of the few groups or individuals in the Arab world who I think are successful in the music they make and the lyrics they write.

    Four of my favourites were; Darg Team, Rami GB, Majzarrah, and DAM.

    Starting with: Darg Team

    This group is based in Gaza and most of their lyrics reflect their life in Gaza.

    Majzarrah ( Fouad Abdul Hadi)

    Majzarrah (Fouad Abdul Hadi) is originally Palestinian from Tulkarem and he’s been rapping for a few years now. Most of his songs go to Palestine and the Israel occupation.

    Rami GB

    One of the very good songs I have heard for this particular rapper. He’s honestly got great beats and strong lyrics. Rami is Palestinian from Jenin and because of the destruction that was caused by Zionist Israel he had to move and live in Ramallah. His album just recently came out in December and this is the play list to his CD.

    http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=2FE15507F04DA382&search_query=Rami+GB

    DAM (Da Arab MCs)

    This band is from the occupied lands of Palestine. This song is one of the most popular songs ever. It’s world wide and I think it’s their best song. Very emotional and truly describes the hardship the Palestinian go through. Some of the scenes in this song made me cry in anger…

    I hope you enjoy my taste in this genre… I really like those two groups and two artists. They have got deep lyrics that struck me really hard inside.
