Some ideas for the next Sheikh Jarrah Demonstration

One of the most often repeated statements by Center-Left people in Israel is that its imperative to negotiate with the Palestinian Authority and Fatah, since they are moderate...unlike the "radical" Islamic Hamas. This of course, is a fiction -- yet these people have convinced themselves that Fatah really are the "good guys" while Hamas are the evil terrorists.

At the next Sheikh Jarrah demonstration this coming Friday, where "center-left" Israelis and ISM anarchists decry the ongoing Jewish presence in this Jerusalem neighborhood, I suggest they broadcast some of the Palestinian Authority TV programs as moderate, soothing background entertainment.

For example, a sermon calling for the genocide of Jews was broadcast this past Friday by PA TV, which is under the control of PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas. This is the same Abbas, who in a recent interview with Haaretz, proudly declared that there is no more incitement in the mosques:

"They [Israel] said there is a problem with incitement in speeches in mosques during Friday prayers. Today there is no more incitement at any mosque," he [Abbas] said." [Haaretz, Dec. 16, 2009, via Maan News]

The speech called the Jews the enemies of God and humanity, and compared Jews to Nazis.

The following is the transcript of excerpts of the hate speech in a mosque broadcast on PA (moderate-Fatah) TV, this past Friday:

"The loathsome occupation in Palestine - its land and its holy places - by these new Mongols and what they are perpetrating upon this holy, blessed and pure land - killing, assassination, destruction, confiscation, Judaization, harassment and splitting the homeland - are clear proof of [unintelligible word - Ed.] hostility, of incomparable racism, and of Nazism of the 20th century. The Jews, the enemies of Allah and of His Messenger, the enemies of Allah and of His Messenger! Enemies of humanity in general, and of Palestinians in particular - they wage war against us using all kinds of crimes, and as you see - even the mosques are not spared their racism...

"Oh Muslims! The Jews are the Jews. The Jews are the Jews. Even if donkeys would cease to bray, dogs cease to bark, wolves cease to howl and snakes to bite, the Jews would not cease to harbor hatred towards Muslims. The Prophet said that if two Jews would be alone with a Muslim, they would think only of killing him. Oh Muslims! This land will be liberated, these holy places and these mosques will be liberated, only by means of a return to the Quran and when all Muslims will be willing to be Jihad Fighters for the sake of Allah and for the sake of supporting Palestine, the Palestinian people, the Palestinian land, and the holy places in Palestine. The Prophet says: 'You shall fight the Jews and kill them, until the tree and the stone will speak and say: 'Oh Muslim, Oh servant of Allah' - the tree and the stone will not say, 'Oh Arab,' they will say, 'Oh Muslim'. And they will not say, 'Where are the millions?' and will not say, 'Where is the Arab nation?' Rather, they will say, 'Oh Muslim, Oh servant of Allah - there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.' Except for the Gharqad tree [tree mentioned in the Quran - Ed.], which is the tree of the Jews. Thus, this land will be liberated only by means of Jihad..." [PA TV (Fatah), Jan. 29, 2010]

It's a great idea. Unfortunately you're going to be told to "stop living in the past or you'll have no future" as I was recently. I cannot get over how some can be so completely blinded to this. It's not as if they have had ANY success in their peace pogroms.
