Israel Stop Stealing Our Stuff!

Not even cousins!
"Being Palestinian means having to watch Israelis constantly pretend they are us."
By Amer Zahr
The life of a Palestinian can be pretty depressing.  We have to deal with dispossession and the refugee life.  Then there’s all the racism.  And don’t forget the media misrepresentation, military occupation, checkpoints, and seizure of resources.  Being Palestinian is relentless.  There are no breaks.  Just when it looks like everything’s OK, someone calls us “invented,” or “barbaric,” or “resentful,” or “hateful.”

Those of us in Palestine have to deal with daily humiliation.  Those of us everywhere else have to deal with daily explaining.  “Have you heard of Theodore Herzl? Or the Balfour Declaration? Resolution 194?... OK, sit down, I’m gonna make coffee.” 

 But the worst part of being Palestinian, by far, is watching Israelis steal our stuff.  I don’t mean stealing our land, demolishing homes, and building settlements.  Yeah, all that’s bad.  But I’m talking about the theft of our stuff… our scenery, our architecture, and our history.  Nothing makes me more angry than seeing an Israeli tanning on a Tel Aviv beach, smoking a hookah.


And don’t forget about the theft of our recipes.  I don’t even want to tell you how many Jewish girls I’ve had to dump over hummus.  Being Palestinian means having to watch Israelis constantly pretend they are us.

If you don’t believe that Israelis are trying to be like us, just go back and watch Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech at the UN a couple weeks ago.  He was rambling, spouting conspiracy theories, promoting his own cultural superiority, and talking as if he was brilliant and everyone else was dumb.  Need I say more?

I’ve always said that we Palestinians are contagious.  I’ve never wanted to find a cure until now.
Last week, I was watching one of my favorite shows, “Homeland.”  For those who might not watch it, the show is about America’s war against terrorism.

Specifically, it focuses on the CIA’s attempts to kill or capture the head of some crazy Islamic terrorist organization called “Al-Qaeda.”  At first, I was offended, but then I discovered that the show’s main plotline also features a white American terrorist, so that made me feel a lot better.

Anyway, last week’s episode featured an assassination attempt on Abu Nazir, the Al-Qaeda leader.  The CIA had tracked him to Beirut, and was geared to take him out.  Abu Nazir survived because the white terrorist guy, who is now a congressman, tipped him off.  Yes, the show has a lot of twists and turns.  The scenery was great and looked strikingly authentic.

 Afterwards, I thought, “Wow, I wonder how an American program about assassinating an Arab got permission to film in Beirut.”
Well, my question was immediately answered.  After the show concluded, Showtime aired a short segment about the assassination scene.

 I quickly learned that the dramatic scene was not filmed in Beirut.  Instead, it was filmed right down the road in Haifa, in Israel.  The director explained how Haifa was the perfect stand-in for Beirut because of its “textures” and “Arabic face.”

I’m sure the producers of American-made “Homeland” had no problem getting permission from the Israeli Culture Ministry’s film commission to film there.  $5 billion a year should get us Americans certain privileges.  I mean, I don’t get any privileges when I go there, but whatever.
I can just imagine the conversation between the director of “Homeland” and the head of the Israel’s film commission:

 Director:  Hi, we’re looking for a place with an Arab feel where we almost kill an Islamic terrorist.
Israel: Almost kill?  We’d be happy to give you lessons.
Director: No, it’s fake… we’re shooting a TV show, and we need a place that looks like Beirut.
Israel: Well, you know we are a western democracy with western culture and ideals, right?
Director: Yeah, of course.
Israel: Then why are you calling us?
Director: Well, I just thought…
Israel: Ha ha, just kidding, you need an Arab-looking city, right?
Director: Yeah.
Israel: No problem habibi, we have lots of those… I’ll send you a list.

On May 15, 1948 Rothschild Jewish militias launched a massive attack on the indigenous inhabitants of Palestine to ethnically cleanse them from their land in order to establish Israel as their Jewish state. This lead more than 750,000 Palestinians to flee their homes and become displaces as refugees in the neighboring countries. Most of the families that fled did not even have time to pack their belonging or anything in fear of being massacred by the vicious Jewish militias who went through villages massacring its inhabitants who refused to leave, most of whom were poor villagers and unarmed farmers. “We must do everything to insure they never return. The old will die and the young will forget” David Ben-Gurion – First Prime Minister of Israel, 1949.

Zionist Identity Thieves

“For the Mandates Commission, Palestine had never ceased to constitute a separate entity. It was one of those territories which, under the terms of the Covenant, might be regarded as “provisionally independent”. The country was administered under an A mandate by the United Kingdom, subject to certain conditions and particularly to the condition appearing in Article 5: “The Mandatory shall be responsible for seeing that no Palestine territory shall be . . . in any way placed under the control of the Government of any foreign Power”. […] Palestine, as the mandate clearly showed, was a subject under international law. While she could not conclude international conventions, the mandatory Power, until further notice, concluded them on her behalf, in virtue of Article 19 of the mandate. The mandate, in Article 7, obliged the Mandatory to enact a nationality law, which again showed that the Palestinians formed a nation, and that Palestine was a State, though provisionally under guardianship. It was, moreover, unnecessary to labour the point; there was no doubt whatever that Palestine was a separate political entity.” DocumentLink

The Rothschild's Jews stole the identity of Judaism and then the identity of Palestine.

Rabbi Yosef Tzvi Dushinsky, Chief Rabbi of Jerusalem (1867-1948)
"We wish to express our definite opposition to a Jewish state in any part of Palestine."

Contrary to the Hasbara, Palestine has existed far longer than any Jewish kingdom or Jewish State. By denying the existence of Palestine and the Palestinian people, the longer history of Jewish existence in the region, as Palestinian Jews, is being denied.

"There can be no kind of discussion of a voluntary reconciliation between us and the Arabs.... Any native people ... view their country as their national home.... They will not voluntarily allow, not only a new master, but even a new partner.... Colonization can have only one goal. For the Palestinian Arabs this goal is inadmissible. This is in the nature of things. To change that nature is impossible . . . colonization can, therefore, continue and develop only under the protection of a force independent of the local population-an iron wall which the native population cannot break through. This is, in total, our policy towards the Arabs. To formulate it any other way would only be hypocrisy."--Vladimir Jabotinsky --(18 October 1880 – 4 August 1940), was a Revisionist Zionist leader, author,orator,and founder of the Jewish Self-Defense Organization in Odessa. With Joseph Trumpeldor he co-founded the Jewish Legion of the British army in World War I and later established several Jewish organizations, including Beitar, haTzohar and the Irgun (terrorist group).
