(Video) The PA message loud and clear. Any questions?

30 May '12..

From Palestinian Media Watch:

"We commit and promise to stand behind you, oh Mahmoud Abbas, until Judgment Day. I am returning to you, the purest land, oh land of the free. No matter how long the nights of exile, I am returning to you, oh land. From Rafah to Rosh Hanikra (northern Israel) our coast, and Beit Shean (Israeli city). Above your soil, oh my land, is a picture of Garden of Eden. From Rafah to Rosh Hanikra our coast, and Beit Shean. Above your soil, oh my land, is a picture of Garden of Eden. From Rafah to Rosh Hanikra, north and south, are the picture's borders. From Haifa (Israeli city) and Tantura to the [Jordan] valley (i.e., all of Israel). I am returning to you, the purest land, oh land of the free."

Note: The following PA officials are shown sitting in the audience: Mahmoud Abbas, PA Chairman, Sultan Abu Al-Einein, Fatah Central Committee, Hanan Ashrawi, PLO Executive Committee, Abbas Zaki, Fatah Central Committee, Al-Tayeb Abd Al-Rahim, President's office Sec. Gen., Yasser Abd Rabbo, PLO Sec. Gen., Ahmad Tibi, Israeli Arab Member of Israeli Parliament.

  1. Sorry, but what's the problem here? People were displaced from their homes and not allowed to return. Can't they even dream of returning one day to their OWN homes, to their properties, to the trees they planted with their own hands, to the graves of their ancestors whose bones are still buried throughout Palestine? Why is one allowed to dream only if one is Jewish, but not allowed to dream if one is not Jewish?

  2. The problem of course is the normal one. Lack of and deliberately hidden context. That their dream now is as it was then, built on the desire to destroy another people, does not allow any more sympathy than does pictures of others who set out with dreams based in genocidal goals which ended instead with then sitting in their own ruins. The second inherent problem is this does not "promote" the possibility of resolution, but instead virtually insures continued conflict and bloodshed for the generations of children to come. While that may put a smile on the face of those who feel abetting genocide is a worthy vocation, those of us both Jewish as well as Arab who wish to have a healthy future would prefer a different course. Other than that, what could be the problem?
