Palestinians: 'Day of rage' against Rice visit [Aw Jeez]
Jerusalem Post ^ | July 24, 2006 | Khaled Abu Toameh

Posted on 07/24/2006 1:50:26 PM PDT by Alouette

Palestinians are calling for a general strike in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip to protest US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice's visit to the region scheduled for later this week, accusing Washington of backing Israel's military campaigns against Hamas and Hizbullah.

Leaflets distributed in the West Bank and Gaza by representatives of several Palestinian factions called for a "day of rage" [a euphemism for violent protests] against Rice's visit. The groups also called on Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to refrain from meeting with Rice.

"We reject Rice's visit to the Middle East and we will expose its real goals," read the leaflets, signed by the National and Islamic Forces in Palestine. "This visit comes in the wake of Israel's US-backed comprehensive aggression against the Palestinians and Lebanese."

The factions accused Israel of waging a war of "genocide" against the Palestinians and Lebanese after receiving a green light from the US administration. They also strongly condemned the US for vetoing a United Nations Security Council resolution that would have condemned Israel for its offensive operations in Lebanon and the Palestinian territories.

The Popular Resistance Committees, an alliance of armed organizations, including Hamas and Fatah, called on Abbas to boycott Rice, saying she was planning to hold separate talks about the situations in Lebanon and in the Palestinian territories.

In a statement issued in the Gaza Strip, the committees claimed that Rice was "plotting" behind the scenes "to isolate Lebanon from Palestine."

The US, the statement continued, wanted to calm the situation in the PA territories to give Israel time to crush Hizbullah.

"We call on President Mahmoud Abbas to respect the feelings of the Palestinian people and to refrain from meeting with Rice and succumbing to her arrogant dictates that will only bring our people more humiliation and suffering," the committees said.

Osama al-Mazini, a Hamas political leader, said Rice's visit was designed to help Israel following its "defeat" in the PA territories and Lebanon.

"The Americans are 120 percent biased in favor of Israel," he said. "That's why Rice is coming to save Israel from defeat and humiliation. The US always intervenes when Israel is in trouble."

Islamic Jihad leader Khaled al-Batsh said the main purpose behind Rice's visit was to ensure the continued support of certain Arab governments for the US. "She's also coming here to provide Israel with political and moral support after the severe blows it suffered at the hands of Hizbullah in Lebanon," he said.

Palestinian political analysts and commentators also lashed out at the US for supporting Israel.

Columnist Imad Afaneh said the US was hoping to punish Syria and Iran through the IDF offensive in Lebanon.

"The Americans want to teach Iran and Syria a lesson for using Hizbullah to undermine US influence in the Middle East," he said. "The Americans and the Israelis are also hoping to defeat the Palestinians by waging a war on Hizbullah in Lebanon.

"The Americans want a new Middle East devoid of jihad, resistance, liberation, martyrdom, retaliation and dignity. These are all terms that disturb the Americans.

"They want to see a Middle East full of Arab presidents, monarchs and princes who serve as slaves for their American masters," Afaneh said.

Abdel Bari Atwan, editor-in-chief of the London-based Al-Quds daily, said Rice wanted a new Middle East without Hamas and Hizbullah, where the Arabs would normalize their relations with Israel and form a joint front against Iran.

"The Americans' problem is that they have never learned from their past mistakes," he said. "They are continuing to rely on the same corrupt and weak horses in the Middle East."

Every once in a while it is interrupted by a "day of helpless victimhood" whenever the BBC and Reuters are in town.

Only when a camera is rolling. Actually, they seem to take time off at the end of the school year for relatively peaceful kindergarten plays and the like, complete with mock suicide bomb belts and readings to the audience about Jews trapping Palestinian kids to use their blood for Matzoh. You think I'm kidding?

Seems to me that I remember Palestinians strapping bombs on their butts and then taking a short bus ride. The Palestinians are the aggressors. Israel would live in peace if they could find a neighbor that would do that same.

I thought the palis had a lot of days off.Must have needed an excuse for a BBQ.Wonder what they eat?I know their candy supplies must be running low.Have seen some pics of their markets,and I saw nothing that would tempt my taste buds.But then,during some different survival training exercises in the Army,your perspective on what you will and will not eat can change dramatically!Being very hungry sure can humble a man!I used to get a kick out of the conversations of some of the men on what they absolutely would,and would not eat,prior to the training exercise.After a few days they would fight over insects!

The Palestinians want to boycott each other...Now there's a plan...

And these underachievers can't figure out why they are on the inside looking out...

"The Americans want a new Middle East devoid of jihad, resistance, liberation, martyrdom, retaliation and dignity. These are all terms that disturb the Americans.

"They want to see a Middle East full of Arab presidents, monarchs and princes who serve as slaves for their American masters," Afaneh said.

Works for me...

Hmmm.. Let's see how this one flies:

"The Israelis accused Hezbollah and Hamas of waging a war of "genocide" against the Jews and Israelis after receiving a green light from Iran and Syria"

Much better.

That's strange. Didn't know these people ever worked. Oh, yes, forgot, they occasionally tear down greenhouses, and jog in the streets with signs. Might be refreshing for them to go on strike.

Yep. There will be no cease fire with the Palestinians either. As Arafat's head fake has been dropped, the radical nature of the Palestinian/Hezbollah demands upon Israel have become clear to every one, except the few fools living in denial. There is no peace partner and nothing to talk about. What is Israel is going to discuss exactly with these people: where to construct new death camps for the Jews? Secretary Rice should get it through her head that the Islamic extremists who dominate the Palestinian/Iranian conflict today are not interested in co-existence or peace with Israel. They want the Jewish State gone.
