I see Roger Waters has ripped the Rolling Stones for agreeing to play in Israel. Who cares, I know, But isn’t that Alice Walker’s job? Or does she only rip the American megastars who agree to perform for Jewish audiences? Or is it a black-white thing? Alice calls out Alicia Keys, Roger gets pasty Mick Jagger.
Like I said, who cares.
But why don’t Alice and Roger and Stephen (Hawking) and the other haters who would shun the Jewish people ever say a word about this?
Authorities in Hamas-run Gaza on Thursday executed two Palestinian Arabs for allegedly collaborating with Israel, the territory’s interior ministry said in a statement.
“Two collaborators with the Israeli occupation, condemned to death for having given information leading to the martyrdom of two citizens, have been executed,” a spokesman told AFP.
He said one of the men, aged 40 and identified by the initials ZR, was shot and the other, AK, aged 30, was hanged in a different location.
The last execution in Gaza, in October, was of a man found guilty of murder.
Under Palestinian law, collaboration with Israel, murder and drug trafficking are all punishable by death. All execution orders must be approved by the Palestinian leader before they can be carried out – but Hamas no longer recognizes the legitimacy of Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, whose four-year term ended in 2009.
Isn’t that the Arabs all over? The so-called Palestinians have an illegitimate government to represent an illegitimate people. (Show me the treaties declaring a state called Palestine—one not meant for the Jewish people—or show me some DNA that proves the existence of such a people. I’ve got plenty of treaties proving the existence of the Jewish state, some going back almost a hundred years—some thousands! I don’t believe the Jewish people are in question, by either the haters or the defenders.)
This is the best the liberal panty-waists can do:
Last June, Amnesty International appealed to people to mail Hamas in protest at the hanging of two alleged collaborators and to appeal against other pending executions.
The London-based rights organization called on people to “write immediately in Arabic or your own language condemning the executions… as applications of the ultimate form of cruel, inhuman and degrading punishment.”
And this is the worst:
“Abbas’s actions brought Hamas to power in Gaza and now it will rise to power in Judea and Samaria,” Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman warned Tuesday, stressing that “no matter when elections are, Hamas will win and take control of the Palestinian Authority.”
As Liberman later alluded, the European Union (EU) has dismissed those concerns based on its conviction that PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, not Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh, would remain in charge of a unity government.
“The EU expects any new government to uphold the principle of non-violence, to remain committed to achieving a two-state solution and to a negotiated peaceful settlement … including Israel’s legitimate right to exist,” EU foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton insisted last month.
“The fact that President Abbas will remain fully in charge of the negotiation process and have a mandate to negotiate in the name of all Palestinians provides further assurance that the peace negotiations can and must proceed.”
Who the hell is she to say so? Abbas is one lamb kebab away from an infarction, and the last election won by any self-identified Palestinian was won by Hamass. “No matter when elections are, Hamas will win and take control of the Palestinian Authority.” No [bleep]! Politics ain’t beanbag, Cathy honey. Hamass will make Abbas an offer he couldn’t refuse.
The (so-called) Palestinian (so-called) Authority has been without an elected leader for five years! The EU might just as well insist that Obama negotiate with Boris Yeltsin.
You Euro-weenies (and Ameri-weenies) don’t like Israel—message received, loud and clear. So, just leave her alone. Pick on someone else for a change, I don’t know, Togo. Oh wait, they’re black. How about Estonia? No, that’s Putin’s next target. Well, you got 140-something other countries to slander, it can’t be that hard.
