Give up on Obama, Disband the Palestinian Authority.

3 11 2009

The issue of continuing and expanding Jewish settlements came back to haunt the Palestinian leadership that negotiated Oslo and continued to negotiate with Israel for the last 16 years while Israeli continued to build and expand its settlements, not to mention building the Apartheid Wall.

No Mr. Attwan, it is not what Abbas should do, but what the people should do?

25 09 2009

Without doubt, Mr. Abdul-Bari Attwan stands out as a professional journalist, dedicated Arab nationalist and a powerful and articulate voice for Palestine in his newspaper “Alquds Alarabi” and in media interviews. However Abdul-Bari Attwan got it wrong, terribly wrong when he published his column on September 25, 2009 titled” Abbas Next Move”. I say the next move should not be Abbas, but the people, the more than 7 million dead silent Palestinians who chose and for the last 60 years to be marginalized and disfranchised by a failed political leadership that brought nothing but disaster to the Palestinians and the cause of liberation.

Perhaps it is time to bring criminal and civil charges against Israel, the PLO, USA, Syria and the Lebanese Forces for the massacres in Lebanon

16 09 2009

Special Note: Today marks the anniversary September 16-18, 1982, when the criminal army of Israel and its allies the Lebanese Forces stormed the refugee camps of Sabra and Shatilla and went on a killing binge murdering thousands of innocent men, women and children. Ariel Sharon went on to become the Israeli Prime Minister to continue with his criminal history as a terrorists and mass murder. Elie Hobeika of the Lebanese Forces went on to become a key minister in Lebanon with the support of the late Hafiz Assad. Others who were involved became trusted financial advisors for Arafat and his wife Suha. Of course Arafat and his PLO simply turned his back to the people and never bothered to open an inquiry let alone file civil and criminal charges against governments and individuals who committed such a heinous crime.

There is something very wrong with people who claim to be smart, intelligent, educated, hard working, honest, nationalists, and decent to accept such a stupid, corrupt, incompetent, reckless, useless leadership and organization for the last 45 year that failed at every thing it set out to do turning the PLO to a manager and contractor of the Jewish Occupation with leadership that at best can be described as self serving, racketeering mafia that made financial fortunes for its self and members of their families fleecing national treasury ,while claiming to represent and lead the Palestinian people toward liberation and independence. The Palestinians remain under Occupation till now. Read the rest of this entry »

From Nelson Mandela to Thomas Friedman, what no one in Ramallah dare to say

4 02 2008

Left: Nilson Mandela, Right: Thomas FriedmanDear Thomas,
I know that you and I long for peace in the Middle East, but before you continue to talk about necessary conditions from an Israeli perspective, you need to know what’s on my mind. Where to begin? How about 1964.
